Why David Bevan chose Hampton Lakes

We chose Hampton Lakes as our holiday home location because it is situated in a more restful part of Central Florida yet within easy reach of all the main attractions which the Orlando area is world famous for.

In addition, the beaches on the Gulf coast and the Atlantic coast are both accessible by car in little more than an hour.

What makes this villa unique

The benefits of the villa are many, perhaps one of the key benefits is that this property is located in the heart of Hampton Lakes therefore guests can be assured that they will be staying well away from any main roads so traffic noise is not a problem.

There are restaurants and shops within a few minutes drive, also, two large supermarkets are to be found in close proximity.

The Villa is a quality home offering spacious living within within easy reach of all the attractions. Villa Amanda is for those wanting the best of both worlds from a Florida holiday. This villa offers peace and relaxation as well as easy access to the the bright lights and exciting parks.

Villa Amanda also provides a fantastic location for a cruise and stay holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Vanessa & John Latter 6-13 May 2013

We have been back a week from our holiday, I have been trying to think of something original to say about Villa Amanda that previous guests have not said. I was so impressed with the villa, it was so clean and beautiful and the only disappointment we had was having to leave.

What a wonderful holiday and a fantastic place to stay. The villa really was everything we hoped for and really well appointed. Thanks to the Bevans for making our holiday. Roger & Vikki Turner 31 May - 14 June 2013

Its 5 star. Everything we need is here. Thanks to Dave and Marian for sharing this fabulous villa and many thanks to Carmen & Nola for the cleanliness

The Dennis family. UK 8-28 March 2013

Sandy Cochrane 9 - 19 Nov 2012

Just want to say thank you very much, we had a wonderful time at your Davenport villa. Your driving directions from the airport were wonderfully simple, your recommendations spot on and the villa was 5 star.

Thank you again

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in August 2017 with our 14 year old son. We have stayed in many villas before but this was the best yet! It was so spacious, double living room with TV's, the kitchen had everything you needed and the 3 bedrooms were very comfortable and big also with TV's. Big washing machine. The pool area was lovely. We only managed to chill out 2 evenings in the villa but made the most of it with the numerous DVD's they had plus Netflix - which our son thought was great. You could not fault the cleanliness of the villa, in the guest book nearly everybody else had commented on this. It was ideally situated 15/20 minutes from the parks which was why we chose it. We hope to definitely go back again. Thank you for letting us stay. Jonathan, Paula and Alex from Sheffield.

Amazing villa - beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Nothing prepared us for the size and luxury of this Villa. We opened the door and were totally blown away by it, just amazing. We had 2 weeks in Florida and referred to the Villa as 'home' many times. The heated pool was just the thing after a day tramping around the parks with the family.

A real 'home from home' with everything you could possibly need. Great communication with the owners before the holiday.

I have recommended Villa Amanda to anyone and everyone and would love to go back to Floriday one day. When I do, I'll be looking to rent Villa Amanda again.

Thank you so much to David and Marian for letting us rent this fantastic property.

Dream Villa

  • 5 of 5

Right where to start!

Before we even arrived in Florida Dave and Marian went out of their way to make our stay perfect. With two autistic 6 year olds and all there unique needs they sent me photos of bedrooms to familiarise the boys to their room then went beyond what would be expected of rental owner and got the boys baseball caps with their names on and placed them on their beds. This was a fabulous gesture and it did the trick...that was their bedroom and that was their bed. So a huge thank you to Dave and Marian for everything they did for us.

The Villa....wow! Better than the photos show because it feels like a home. It was beautifully decorated throughout with gorgeous furnishings, and was spotlessly clean.

It has EVERYTHING you could need as far as equipment is concerned, even a teapot which made my husband very happy being an avid tea drinker.

There are instructions to everything you might want to use so no hassle when you wanted to watch one of the many large screen TVs. The boys loved that they could watch Disney ( we don't have it at home ).

The pool and outside area is lovely. Very private, no one can see you in your cossie if you're not like a model!!!

It's a great location, not in the hustle and bustle of Orlando but great to get to all the theme parks, oh and there's loads of information on attractions and places to go. Maps that show vital places like supermarket, pharmacies and places near by to eat out. Even some numbers for take aways.

I must say we were sad to leave , it had been the first truly enjoyable holiday with the boys we had had and that was purely down to Villa Amanda, Dave and Marian.

Better stop now this is turning into a book.

We all would highly recommend staying at Villa Amanda and can't wait to make a return visit.

We are delighted you had such a wonderful time and the boys will recall Villa Amanda whenever they wear the caps. We take great pleasure from knowing you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again.

Wow amazing

  • 5 of 5

This villa is amazing, we were completely blown away by it. Everything you could possibly imagine needing was there. The villa was spotlessly clean and well looked after.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 18/8/16 and could recommend it to anyone looking to rent a villa in Florida. It is 15 minutes drive from the Disney parks, restaurants and a Publix supermarket are 5 minutes away at berry town centre.

Dave and Marian are very helpful and answer any/all queries straightaway.

Hope to stay here again on our next trip to Florida

Owner's Response: Hi, We really appreciate your review, and so please that everything met our expectations, we are well aware that there are some villas in Florida that are perhaps below par? We do not see ourselves in that category and therefore honest reviews by our guests are seen as essential to our future business. We hope to accommodate you in the future.

Words can't express how wonderful Villa Amanda is!

  • 5 of 5

Florida is an amazing magical place to holiday but staying at Villa Amanda for 2.5 weeks ensured our family had the 'holiday of a lifetime'. We can't recommend this villa enough, there was nothing missing, nothing we wanted or needed, everything you need is available. It is immaculate as soon as you walk in it feels like home. The listing on Owners Direct and the photographs is very accurate, to be honest exact!!

The pool is amazing, the beds comfortable, the showers are great, kitchen equipment spot on...... the list goes on....

Dave and Marion were so helpful, Dave replied to emails promptly and nothing was too much trouble. We contacted the managment company whilst we were out there and it was no trouble for us to stay until 2pm on our departure day as no-one else was booked in that day. It made our departure pleasureable instead of rushed. We paid to use the Sat Nav which we would recommend, again Dave was helpful and phoned us to explain fully.

As you can tell we can't rate this highly enough and would definitely stay at Villa Amanda again in the future. Sad we had to come home really but I know you will love it as much as us.

We ate in our villa quite a bit, but did visit the local takeaways on a couple of occasions. We visited Celebration one night and really enjoyed a meal at the Celebration Town Tavern.

Thanks Dave and Marion.
