About Alan Smith

We are a working married couple in our fifties, with grown up children. We first visited Florida many years ago when our children were young and got the Florida Bug. We finally took the plunge and bought our own villa April 2012, now we have every reason to return with or without children.

Alan Smith purchased this villa in 2012

Why Alan Smith chose Davenport

Having looked at many communities in the area, we chose Hampton Lakes as it appears far superior to most of the other communities we saw. It is always beautifully maintained and has a warm and friendly neighbourhood feel to it. Hampton Lakes is also ideally situated for The Theme Parks, Shopping Malls, Restaurants and Golf Courses yet just far enough away from the crowds to provide peace and relaxation.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with our villa as soon as we saw it. We had looked at other villas where the pools were overlooked at the rear or from the side. This did not appeal to us as we do like some privacy around the pool. The pool is south facing, completely private and gets the sun from dawn to dusk. This is our idea of heaven and we want to give you the opportunity to share it too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Michael and Kat Arnott



What an opportunity to stay at this amazing home.

Our expectations were high after a recommendation from a previous guest and it certainly lived up to it all. The information and handy tips mentioned in the guest guide was really useful. The availability , communication mand responsiveness of the management company and you as owners was greatly appreciated to answer some questions we had during our trip.



Our group had 5 adults and two kids and we had more than enough space to live comfortably for the two weeks.



Our kids loved the use of the private pool so much they would've been happy just to stay in it and not visit Mikey and Minnie.



The location of the villa was excellent for access to all the major attractions and amenities meaning more time enjoying our holiday than in a car.



We'll definitely be recommending this villa to friends and family and will be back in the very near future.





Hi Kat from England, UK

.Fab Villa

  • 5 of 5

So glad we came across Alan and Rosalind's villa when searching last year. It really is fantastic and so spacious, it has everything you need. It sits in a nice quiet estate with a private south facing pool and lovely comfortable chairs and sun lounges, the BBQ was amazing too. The villa was spotless and is well maintained and had a new washing machine and tumble drier installed the day after we arrived which was fab. You will not be disappointed if you book. The owners kept in touch by email from start to finish and i would not hesitate booking again in the future.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in this amazing villa and it gets better every time . The villa is located on a lovely estate about 20 minutes from the Disney Parks and is a great place to visit all the Orlando attractions. It is very clean, comfortable and has everything you need to ensure you have a lovely stay in Florida . The villa is spacious and the pool is lovely . There is plenty of furniture around the pool so you can relax after a busy day at the parks and enjoy a lovely bar be que. I often swam in the pool at night

Ros and Alan are so helpful and the management company also were helpful too. I recommend this property to my friends and will definately return again .

All the main parks are great . For themed / special dining we liked Be Our Guest in Maguc Kingdom and the Boathousecat Disney Springs . For more everyday dining the Texas Steakhouse

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing holiday. The owners were helpful right from my first enquiry. They even provided a sat nav which was so helpful when getting around. The villa was spacious and immaculate. The pool and area so relaxing. We loved our evenings by the pool. Our party consisted of 9 people with age ranges from 2 to 82 and suited all our needs perfectly. Will definitely revisit this lovely home. Favourite place to eat Applebee's just up the road.

Fantastic place to stay for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would need to have a great holiday is available at this property. Fresh spotless towels with toiletries to pamper your outer self a large bbq to fill your inner self and a large pool with lights to keep you fit. A welcome pack was a great surprise and enabled us to have a welcome drink after our journey. Other facilities that enhanced the stay were the TV's , dvds, pool towels, luxurious furniture. All this topped off by the cleanliness of the whole place. There is nothing negative to say about this lovely place and I would recommend it to anyone.

Eureka - truely a dream villa

  • 5 of 5

WOW again! This is our 3rd visit to this fantastic villa and it just keeps getting better.

The situation on the US27 is just perfect after a day at the parks or even a day shopping. Only a 10 minute drive from Disney and 20 minutes from Universal it is positioned in a beautifully kept estate. There are supermarkets, restaurants, take-aways, pharmacies, nail spa and more on the door step. You could walk but the heat makes an air-conditioned car much more comfortable.

The villa itself is extremely spacious, very well laid out and has everything you need for a great holiday.

This year we arrived to find beautiful new porcelain floor tiles throughout the communal areas, this made the place look even bigger and was so clean.

The pool area is by far the best of all the villas we have stayed at, very secluded and hedging outside the canopy keeps noise down. There is a large covered patio for when you need a bit of shade or for the odd time a tropical downpour descends. The pool furniture is good quality padded chairs and sun loungers and the pool itself is huge and crystal clear. This year there was new underwater lighting which at first we though was a gimmick but was actually quite mesmerising. After dark we would sit around the pool and watch the water change from blue to purple to pink to green. The light reflected off the framework of the canopy and so the whole area lit up, very relaxing.

The owners Alan & Rosalind are constantly updating the villa and adding new items (an 8 burner BBQ suddenly appeared one day followed by an email from Alan saying "Please use"). The specification is superior to all the other villas we have stayed in (and we've been to Florida ten times now), that's why we keep coming back here now we have found this hidden treasure.

The communication with the owners is so reassuring from the first contact. If it's your first time renting then it can be a worry but they send lots of information and keep in touch right up to just before you go.

Another added bonus is that you get to choose your code for the front door (and the safe) which gives that extra sense of security. And yes if you have teenagers there is free Wi-Fi !!

If there has to be a negative, then it's that we didn't stay longer.

We will be back - Steve, Karen & Liam from Riseley, Berkshire
