About Lynne & Ian Spencer

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.

Lynne & Ian Spencer purchased this villa in 2013

Why Lynne & Ian Spencer chose Davenport

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.

What makes this villa unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay in your Florida Home. We are already making plans to return. The Villa is in a really lovely location and very easy to get to Disney and any of the other parks. You have supermarkets 5 minutes from the Villa.

The villa is very spacious and we had no problems. The Villa was spotless when we arrived and the private pool area is lovely with the added benefit of the BBQ to use.

The games room was a good hit with the kids along with a computer consul for them to play in the living room.

Overall this villa is very good value for money and has all the facility's you will require, including washing machine and tumble dryer.

We look forward to returning soon.

Great location & Facilities

  • 5 of 5

Just back from 3 weeks at this lovely villa.

It was in a great location not too far from all of the attractions, and handily placed for restaurants and shopping, whist still being in a quiet location.

The villa had all the amenities that we needed, and even managed to escape totally unscathed from the attentions of hurricane Irma.

We would definitely consider returning, and would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a holiday in the Orlando area.

Fabulous Villa - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week stay at Ian & Lynnes villa. This was our 7th visit to Florida and our 3rd time on Highgate Park. This was by far the best villa we have stayed in. We went as a family to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday and from making the initial contact with Ian & Lynne everything has been outstanding.

The villa was perfect very spacious and very clean. We had everything we needed and certainly made use of the BBQ.

The location of Highgate Park is perfect for anyone wanting to visit the Disney/Universal Parks and there are shops/takeaways etc.

I have already sent details of the villa to some friends hoping to visit Florida next year and we will definately be making a return visit.

Great villa, good location, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the owners for the easy process in renting the villa, very helpful, informative and quick to respond to all our questions. The villa is in a good location for easy access to all the parks and is close to numerous shops and restaurants. It's located in a gated community, which feels safe and secure and the local management company are on hand to provide assistance if needed. The villa is very well appointed and comfortable and the pool/spa area and games room are ideal to keep the kids entertained. Overall a great experience and we would definitely recommend this villa. Thanks to the owners for making our stay so special.

Amazingly Brilliant and Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

So what can I say, we had the most​ amazing holiday and the villa was so comfortable, the outside space was wonderful. Thank goodness we heated the pool, we had been wincing as we got in, but once you were used to it, it was fine. The difference when we heated it was AMAZING!! We went swimming in the dark most evenings. The Jacuzzi was a blissful way to end a long day at the parks.

I absolutely loved the washer and drier! I have never had clothes cleaned so quickly! We loved the books in the cupboard (I read five!!!)

Our bedroom was gorgeous, the wardrobe room amazing! The bathroom fab!! Took a while to get used to the toilets being so low though!!

I am more than happy to comment in the review section and will give the villa an "outstanding" grade. We have already told our friends the Wises, who wish to come to Florida next year about your villa and I will be forwarding your info on to her.

Thank you for all your contact beforehand, everything was superb! Directions were fab, and the fact the Publix, was so close was very handy. We only ate out three times. We used the bbq once (very nice) so we truly used the villa to its maximum!! My son and daughter adored the air hockey and I became quite proficient at Darts.

The parks were no more than 20 minutes away and all the shops you could wish for in easy driving distance.

Thank you once again, it was truly the best holiday we have ever had and I am very jealous that you will get to retire there one day!!.
