About the Owner

My wife Lynne & I live in Aberdeen, working in the oil & gas industry.

We were attracted to Florida many years ago when our children were young. We all loved staying in a villa with its own pool and visiting all the theme parks.

As our son now lives in the USA with his fiancé, we decided to purchase our own villa so we can be closer to him and spend more time in the sun when we retire in the next couple of years.

We also enjoy spending time at our 2 bedroom apartment in Cyprus (CY2616) located just outside Paphos.

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this as we're still here(our penultimate day). I have to say that the photos don't do this place justice. It's awesome it's almost like a home from home feeling from the minute you walk in the door except we have a pool here and games room etc.

Ian and Lynne have responded to every email I've sent and been fantastic to deal with, the villa is 2 mins from the 192 that has access to Disney and seaworld and 2 mins down the road from interstate 4 that takes you to Tampa, Busch gardens,Clearwater beach.

This villa is in a prime location to do everything you want to do and we've loved it that much I'm already looking at Easter 2017 dates to come back and I'll be reserving this place as soon as possible. The neighbourhood is great- really quiet and gated off from the road, we get to see armadillos, little lizards and even a raccoon on some evenings. I'll definitely be back.

Fantastic location for Disney parks !

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for a 3 week vacation in the summer of 2015 which included a 50th birthday celebration. All aspects of the booking were handled smoothly from the initial enquiry right through to the return of our security deposit. The villa surpassed all of our expectations and provided a perfect base from which we could enjoy our vacation. There is even a very handy file in the villa in which the owners have listed many tips based on their experience from living in the area. The villa is located on highway 27 just off the 192 which takes you either directly into disney or onto the I4 into Orlando if you are going to Universal or even onto KSC. Depending upon traffic the time from the villa onto Disney property would be 15 - 20 minutes. There are numerous restaurants on both the 27 & 192 to cater for all tastes - our personal favourite was the Cracker Barrel and one to avoid is Sizzler ! The gated community felt very safe and private and was always very quiet - there was even a very helpful neighbour who moved the trash bins into place on the appropriate collection days ! The only problem we had which required a call to the management company was handled very quickly and efficiently. There are plenty of supermarkets within easy reach - we found Publix good for everyday essentials and Super Target best for bigger shops. One final tip - if you are travelling to Orlando via a connecting flight through Philadelphia, New York, Charlotte etc it really is worth considering flying into Tampa Bay airport rather than Orlando - this will avoid having to make the first part of your journey to the villa along the I4 which can get very busy. The trip from Tampa to Davenport was much easier following 2 long flights ! All in all a superb base from which to enjoy our vacation many thanks to Ian & Lynne for all of you help from the Dyke family !

Owner's Response: Hi Kevin & Family Many thanks for the feedback following your vacation. It is good to know that any problem you had was dealt with promptly by our management company. Your recommendations for eating places are also appreciated. The Tampa airport to the villa is a route we have used and can work for certain journeys. We are glad you enjoyed the facilities and hope you would consider returning sometime in the future. Lynne & Ian

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

First time visiting Florida with our kids and we had a fantastic time. The villa was everything and more, very spacious, brilliant pool/spa and stunning open plan living space. It is so close to all the parks in particular Disney. We used the 192 route to and from the parks and this road has every restaurant you could ask for. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

A fantastic villa in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely villa is on a well maintained development and provided a great base for our daily trips to the Disney parks. The whole family enjoyed the facilities especially the pool, games-room and BBQ. Being situated in Davenport means you do need a car but that gives you the benefit of exploring the surrounding area. On one of our travels we stopped for a lovely meal at the Red Lobster restaurant. We enjoyed it so much that we went back during our second week. I would recommend this villa to anyone intending to visit Disney for a holiday.

Fabulous villa and location :)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 12 nights - a family group of 8 of us from 3 generations ranging from 13 up to 75... everyone LOVED the villa. It is comfortable, nicely decorated and furnished, has all the amenities for a 'home from home' and enough space that 8 people aren't falling over each other but are close enough for 'togetherness'... The three bathrooms was a massive benefit with 8 people so none of the usual 'who's going in the bathroom next?' carry on!

Other great aspects of this villa are enough seating and sunbeds round the pool for everyone at the same time if needed, pool heated to a comfortable level, air hockey and a pool table in the garage, lovely clean carpets, very spacious master bedroom suite with comfy bed and huge shower - all in all, a great holiday home.

The location should also be mentioned as often times the stated '20 mins to xxxx' leave me wondering if the owner uses a helicopter! Not so with this villa... it is indeed approx 20 mins to the Disney parks, a little longer to the Universal Parks and an hour from Busch gardens in Tampa. We also drove out further for an airboat tour, all of which were easily accessible from this villa. It is brilliantly located in a secure gated estate that is clean, tidy and very quiet. A lovely neighbourhood.

Last but not least is the excellent communication and information provided by the owners. Everything from the initial phone call through to the deposit refund went smoothly, professionally and with a friendly tone. The directions from the airport were spot on and the villa handbook was useful. We genuinely felt that the owners cared that we had a great holiday... which we did!

In summary, I cannot recommen

A great stay..

  • 5 of 5

As a family holiday, we found both the villa and the location to be very convenient. the villa was easy to find from orlando airport, and was situated close to all the disney attractions. the gated community was both quiet and very well kept, all your home luxury's and more were catered for, the games room and large pool were a real treat for all members of the family and having the bbq in the evening was just what you need to relax, i would highly recommend the villa for both a pleasant and convenient stay in orlando.

From the Owner

Having spent many superb vacations in Florida over the years while our family was growing up, it has been a dream for us to own a villa in the sunshine state, and finally we achieved our goal. The Davenport area is so easy to get to the attractions at Disney, Universal and Sea World also the range of shops and restaurants are second to none. If you are on a budget the choice of eating places is endless, or, if you want to treat yourself there are up market restaurants available. The location is also ideal for travelling to either the East or West Coast resorts of Tampa or Miami, with excellent road links.

From the Owner

With the villa being on one level there are no stairs to worry about young or old to cause any problems. The extended pool & Spa deck allows plenty of room for kids to play and the adults to sunbathe and relax. Our aim is to make our guests feel comfortable and create a "home from home" experience. Safety in the villa is very important, so there is a removable safety net which separates the pool & spa from the house. There is also a games room with a pool table, darts & air hockey. A Wii and a Playstation will also keep everyone happy in the evenings
