About John Harkness

We are a family of four who live in the UK, who have holidayed in Florida for over 25 years. After staying in lots of holiday villa we decided to buy our own and incorporate the best of everything we had experienced on our previous holidays. We love Florida, it's people and surroundings and want to share the great experiences we have had with our guests.

John Harkness purchased this villa in 2004

Why John Harkness chose Davenport

Our dream was that of buying our own holiday Villa in Florida. For a long time that dream was unattainable, but when we found we could at last afford to fulfill our dream, we looked at all the different locations available to us. Hampton Lakes was by far the most desirable community, and the Villas there were the most luxuriously appointed. We chose this particular Villa because of it's unique position and south facing private swimming pool overlooked by 16 spectacular palm trees. We have never regretted buying this Villa, and only wish we could spend more time there each year.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is set in the quietest part of the development, and has wide avenues and manicured lawns. Hampton Lakes has tennis courts, community pool and cabana, BBQ and picnic areas, plus a volleyball court, all flood-lit for night time use, landscaped walks surrounding a lake with spectacular fountain, and a children’s play area. The Villa has sunshine on the pool deck all day, and the setting sun through the palm trees in the evening is a fantastic end to the day.

Great home and amazing price!

Looking for a nice clean place to stay? Look no further. This home is very clean, well maintained, very spacious and is located near major theme parks but outside of the hustle and bustle. No hotel can come close especially for the price and the amenaties you get!

Great house with good location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and is well furnished and stocked as it was described. It wasn't exactly spotless, but I would say it was clean overall. The pool area is nice, but the pool needed to be vacuumed. The manager was very helpful and easy to reach. We had a few minor things that needed to be addressed when we arrived and he was eager to help. The location is a great area and it's easy to get to the theme parks. We had a great vacation and the house was a big part of that. Thank you!

A lovely spacious home near to Disney

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the villa. John was very helpful in advance, responding straight away to any questions and allowing a late check out which really helped on our last day as we had an evening flight. On arrival we were blown away by the size and space as we opened the front door. The inside of the villa was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay, with large bedrooms and huge amounts of living space. One of the key reasons we chose the villa was the interior design, and the original artwork was fantastic. The garage also had a really good quality pool table, as well as air hockey, table football and darts. Outside the pool got the sun from mid morning until sunset.

The location was also excellent, on a really well kept community with lakes, communal pool and two playgrounds which were perfect for our little girl. It was also very handy for Disney, with easy access to the parks which avoided the busiest routes. Within a mile there is a large Publix supermarket with a range of restaurants, and not much further on a massive Walmart. Both shops had really cheap and good quality craft beers!

Nearby we also really enjoyed Lake Louisa State Park, and on John’s recommendation spent a brilliant afternoon in a town called Celebration.

A great location to visit the parks and a lovely spacious home to relax by the pool in the Florida sun.

Great Disney Trip with 3 Young Children

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing holiday at the end of October, The house was perfect for us, close to numerous shops and restaurants and a short journey to the main Disney areas. The kids loved the pool and the games room and we loved the open plan nature. John was very helpful and the whole process was easy. We would definately recommend to everyone and will hopefully be returning in the future.
