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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a beautiful home, love the contemporary furniture and fabulous games room. The kids loved it all! Dave, Sharon & Family, Solihull.

Thank you for renting your villa in Hampton Lakes to us. The villa was beautiful and very modern. Thanks again, Fiona and family, from Ayr in Scotland.

Thank you for a great time in your lovely villa. The setting sun behind the palm trees overlooking the pool was brilliant.

Family holiday full of fun

  • 5 of 5

After having a dramatic flight and long delay the villa just helped us all forget the horrendous experience. The directions and information that the owner sent us were very accurate with no problems at all. The villa is extremely spacious clean and very luxurious. We chose this villa because it stood out from the rest with its modern features and furniture. The pool is just enough to relax in after long days at the parks and a great escape from the heat. You have everything you need, the washer and dryer were a godsend with us having kids. Air conditioning is fab in fact it was a little cold for us but after a call to the maintenence man he was there to sort it out and was very helpful. We were grateful of the deep bath in the master bedroom to soothe are aching bones from being thrown about on the rides at universal studios. We found

the villa in a perfect location for us with easy access to the supermarket and parks via car. We decided to try applebees restaurant two days before we came home and were gutted we hadnt gone before because the food was lovely, very reasonable with great service we are even fb friends with the waitress debbie she was brill. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this villa and we would highly recommend it to friends and family....we are saving like mad to go back and wouldnt hesitate to book this villa again.

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.

Fab stay!

  • 5 of 5

For the previous 2 years of holidaying in Orlando, we had chosen apartments through the holiday company. However this time we decided on a private villa.

I can not fault the owners of this villa, John & Yvonne, who were very helpful from start to finish & made the process nice, easy & hassle free.

We found it to well stocked with towels, bedding, dinnerware,etc. We even noticed a cool box and fold up chairs! ...If you need it, you will find it! It is a beautiful, comfortable, lovely home to stay in. With ample space to accommodate 2 families. Also perfect for the odd lazy morning before heading off out for the day. 🌞

What can I say about this place......well for a start it was amazing. Our family had a wonderful time. The house was spotless, very spacious, the pool was great. The location was very handy for Disney. The owners couldn't do enough to help us and the management team were fantastic. We can't wait to go back next year as we have already booked.

A lovely home in an ideal location, couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for 10 nights in May 2015. It is spacious. comfortable, clean and had everything you'd expect to have at home. We all loved the pool, even

managed to persuade the kids to forsake a day at the parks to spend a lazy day around it. There is a Publix and a number of restaurants just a couple of minutes drive up the road or you're a 15 minute drive from everything highway 192 has to offer. You're also 20 to 30 drive from all of the parks, shopping malls and other attractions. Overall a fantastic villa contributing to an amazing holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review ( May 2016 ). So pleased you enjoyed your stay in our home. Yvonne and I take great pleasure in maintaining and always improving the facilities for our guests. The pool is great this time of the year as the outside temperature is getting very hot! The kids love it and it's so refreshing that's the important thing. Thank you once again for spending your vacation in our villa. Hopefully, see you back again very soon. John and Yvonne.
