About Alison & Barry Ebdon

We, Barry and Alison Ebdon, live in Hampshire, England with our three children. We first visited Florida in 2006 and instantly fell in love with it.

We have spent almost every holiday since in Florida, and decided to buy our own holiday home there in 2009.

Alison & Barry Ebdon purchased this house in 2009

Why Alison & Barry Ebdon chose Davenport

We wanted to buy a house, within easy reach of Disney and other theme parks, but in an area which has some character. Many of the more recent developments (built around 2005/6) seem a bit bland and sterile, with few trees or plant-life. Davenport lakes was built around 1998/1999 and has a more established feel to it. Many of the homes are owned by people who live there permanently, who all seem very friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday. Your villa is lovely and the pool and air con are marvellous in the August heat. Derek and Sheila.

The villa is amazing, all the mod cons, rooms are huge. Lovely pool area. Barry and Alison the owners are great to deal with, good communication and gave us plenty of advice regarding flights and anything else you could ever ask.

All in all, a perfect villa for families. Hope to be back one day. James and Lesley.

We contacted the owner and within a week we were sat around a very private pool in a stunning villa in Florida. Very good communication with the owners and very simple to arrange, especially on such short notice. Villa was perfect. We loved the modern design and furnishings and it had everything you could need in regards to facilities. The cable TV and Internet connection proved invaluable. The villa is in a good, quiet but friendly neighborhood. Made for a perfect holiday. We will be back to this villa next chance we get. Andy & Kalina

Lovely large property and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We exchanged quite a few emails with the owners before we stayed at the Villa, and they offered information regarding travelling to/from the villa to Disney, Universal, and the airport. They were incredibly helpful, and they didn't just stop communicating once the villa was booked.

For the price, I couldn't believe how large and well maintained this villa is. Due to the price, just myself and partner stayed here for 2 weeks as it was only slightly more expensive than a hotel room on International Drive.

There is a large typical open living space, 2 large double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 twin rooms. We didn't even use the upstairs space..!

Whenever we had a question, we got onto the management company for this company who are British Ex-pats who were also very helpful and friendly.

The pool was nice, but we would advise the use of pool heating especially in October. Had we have not had it, it would have been too cold for swimming in.

Would recommend this to any type of traveller to Orlando. Access is easy to all the points of interest. I can't wait to go back, I just need to get our plans sorted.

Thanks Barry and Alison

Claire and Alistair

A wonderful villa within easy reach of Disney and other attractions for a great price. Right from the word go the owners were very helpful and easy to deal with , giving plenty of valuable information. The villa is easy to find and when you first open the door you find out how big it is. Very well maintained and furnished with big rooms and living area. Outside is a good sized pool and ideal for adults and kids to relax in after a hard day at the parks or to just lounge around on a down day. The villa is in a nice quiet areas and there is plenty of information in folders inside to make your stay as simple as possible. There is a Walmart within 5 minutes drive and plenty of restaurants on the 192 highway within a 5 mins drive. This highway leads directly to Disney and also Kissimee and Orlando. We had a wonderful 10 nights there with 2 young children and are looking forward to returning in the future

Well Described, and the Pictures are very representative. But you just do not get a feel for the size until you actually get there and open the front door. I liked the security setup, it helped us to feel very safe and secure. However the entire area, and holiday made us feel safe and secure. Plenty of pavements (sidewalks) if you are partial to a bit of holiday fitness. Went on regular early morning runs - on the first week - too many burgers on the second week ;-)

The whole place was very clean and tidy upon arrival, which is great and encourages you to keep it that way.

The owner was fantastic from the word go, with plenty of advice and tips during the email conversations.

It is just the right distance for everything.

We decided to rent a Villa for the first time as the thought of our own private space including a pool was very appealing, after much browsing and research on locations etc we decided on this one, what a great choice it was!, it's much larger than you think from the pictures and felt like home in no time, it has everything you need and more, it was great to have such a large en-suite to the master bedroom and the air conditioning works a treat, and believe me you need it, the villa is situated in a lovely area and we felt safe and secure from the moment we arrived, I went running each morning around the area and the local sports fields and loved it, the villa is situated about 30 minutes drive from everything you need in Orlando, it has a local supermarket 1 mile away which kept us stocked up for the 2 weeks we stayed, all in all a fantastic exerience and we never want to stay in a hotel again!, it was the holiday of a lifetime and we can't wait to go back as we still had so much left to do, I would just like to mention what a nice guy 'Barry' the owner is, he always replied to my emails and was a great help to us with his advise and suggestions, Thanks Barry we'll be back!!

Great Family Villa

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we have rented a property for a holiday so it was a new experience for the whole family. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we enjoyed our stay so much we are thinking of investing in something similar in the future. We found the villa with no problem, popped the address in the sat nav and it took us right to the front door. Once we had got through all the security measures at the front door ( which are excellent ) It was a mad dash to get the best rooms. The Villa was so spacious with an open plan down stairs, more than ample sleeping accommodation and all the mod cons you could wish for. The pictures on the website are good but you don't realise how big the place is until you are in it. The property was clean and tidy, had fresh bedding on all the beds and clean towels in all the bathrooms. The layout of the property is exactly how it explains on the website and there are two folders in the living room with all the do's and don'ts and also explanations on how to work all the equipment from the cooker, microwave, TV etc . Also there is a pool alarm, which alarms when the back door is opened. This alarm has to be fitted by law and is very loud. It may seem annoying at first but when you consider the fact that it warns you that someone has gone to the pool area, especially if you have young children it can't be a bad thing. Plus it doesn't take long to get used to it. I found the customer service to be very good as we had a problem with the internet wireless connection on the day we arrived. We left a message the next morning, went to a theme park that day, within an hour of our return the router had been replaced and everyone was hooked up to wifi.. Another excellent thing about this property is the location. It is no more than 15-30 mins drive from all the main attractions in the Disney area. We visited all all the main parks and went a little further afield to go Gator spotting which was no more than 40 mins . Local amenities like Walmart, Applebees etc are no more than 5 mins drive. In summary I found this this to be a great rental villa. Every attraction is no more than 15-40 mins drive. All the amenities are on your door step. If you go in July-Aug then expect some thunder storms and a few insects. Also remember this villa is in a residential area so you have neighbours left and right of you and at the back and front and we had no problem with any of them. Enjoy we did
