About lisa smith

Lisa & Gordon

After many enjoyable family vacations in Orlando and Florida we decided to purchase our own holiday villa and chose Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club. We are based in UK and holiday at our villa every year and continue to enjoy the Orlando area even as our kids slowly outgrow the Disney and other theme parks.

lisa smith purchased this villa in 2012

Why lisa smith chose Davenport

After years of decision and months of searching we finally found the perfect proeprty and purchased it from another UK based couple in October 2012.

What is it they say are the three most important facts about properties - Location Location Location

Well we are based just south of Orlando making it the perfect centralised base for ALL attractions and being equidistant to both East and Gulf Coasts its perfect for days out to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for allowing us to use your villa. Everything was fine apart from the pass code not working the first night we arrived and an issue with the TV control. Both issues were resolved very efficiently by your management company.



We had a wonderful holiday but it went by in a flash! The pool was a huge hit with the kids and we also enjoyed there being enough space to spectate from the sun loungers!



We found the villa comfortable, well equipped, clean and well looked after and will recommend to friends and family.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I can not give this house a good review. I asked if they had a solar cover for the pool and was told they did, but when we got there it was shredded and not usable. The owner was aware of it, so not sure why she told me there was one. The digital lock on the front door stopped working after we were there and it took 2 days before we could get a key out of a lock box because neither the owner or the property managers knew the correct combination. They require you to do there sheets and towels before you leave at 10 AM, if you had a full house you would have to get up at 4 am to have them all done since the dryer takes forever. Lucky for me it was just my husband and me. We did the towels the night before and just had to do the sheets. I have never rented a house that required you to do all the cleaning. Don't mind leaving the house neat and tidy, but I have never been told I have to do the laundry, What are you paying for. There are no cleaning supplies in the house, better bring everything, not an extra garbage bag, dish soap, etc. I have stayed at many homeaway rentals, and this was the worst. House was clean, but very badly run. Also holes in the screens on in the pool area. They give you 10 page instructions on what is expected of you, but don't provide much in return.

florida fun

  • 5 of 5

we booked Gordon & Lisa Villa easily on line and they confirmed the dates we wanted quickly and all the information that they send is very detailed and very helpful , having stayed in southern dunes Florida before in a similar villa we knew our way around but if your a first timer then the information is invaluable (my wife was very impressed) . the villa is very nice and clean and well equipped my lads 21 and 19 even had a cuddly toy on there beds they say they were not bothered but i'm not sure ! . the villa is really easy to use and all the instructions are well laid out and easy , the pool area is nice and the pool was fun we haven't been in May before and were unsure if we would need the pool heating turned on but it was very nice and warm just with just the sun and it was very clean on it the location is easy to find and very accessible for the large Walmart on the edge of the estate very handy and if your using this as a base to visit the parks then its very well placed and easy to get about , we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back thanks to Gordon & Lisa for making our time at there home so enjoyable . kind regards the Walters family

This home is listed twice with VRBO. The other listing is # 3784483ha. ???

The owner of this home was very good to us. He replaced the pool furniture and gave us control of the pool heat and air conditioner. It would be a good home for families with children and/or guys on a golf outing BUT if you are snow birds staying for 2-6 months bring your cleaning supplies.

A great house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house. It was clean and it had everything we needed and more. It was really close to everything we had planned to do. Very practical with Wallmart so close.

We chose to wait with poolheating until we arrived. The owners gave us great customer service when we wanted heating after arrival.

I highly recommend this house.

We will happily rent this house again next time we are going to Florida.

Our Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the home and everything was as promised. The home was comfortable and nicely decorated. There is something for everyone in the family. All of the accessories that you would need in a kitchen are at your fingertips. We have never dealt with such great owners. Lisa and Gordon replied to all our emails and questions promptly and guided us through the entire process. We would recommend this home to anyone. If you're looking for a great place to stay, we highly recommend this property. We truly felt as comfortable as we do at our own house. Thank you Gordon and Lisa.

The house had everything we needed and more.. wifi, swimming pool, games room etc. Comfortable and nicely decorated. The huge walmart at a five minute walking distance was also a great asset.
