Updated: 19-Oct-2016
Villa in Town Center Reserve, Davenport, Florida Orlando/Kissimmee, USA - If you are looking for a family holiday Palm Cove Villa is only 10 minutes away from Disney World

Disney is only 10 minutes drive away. Also set 4 minutes from Interstate-4 and with only one set of traffic lights means that all the attractions that Orlando has to offer and this is not just confined to the theme parks are all in easy reach. Being located to the south of Orlando means you are also in easy reach of the gorgeous white sands and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. For those who play golf we are only minutes from Champions Gate, Mystic Dunes and Reunion golf courses, indeed there are many to choose from within a short drive. To comfortably sleep 8 people our villa has 4 bedrooms with 2 master bedrooms with Queen beds and each with en-suite, bedrooms 3 and 4 have twin beds that share a bathroom, importantly there are hairdryers in both master bedrooms, 3 of the bedrooms have TVs.

The kitchen is fully fitted with a large fridge freezer, cooker hob and oven and there is also a fitted microwave oven. So that you can freshen your clothes after a day in the sun there is a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board available for your use, this of course offers you the opportunity of bringing less luggage and therefore more room to take home those holiday purchases from the fabulous shopping malls only a few minutes drive away. For those evenings that you do not want to go out the villa offers a large HD television connected to cable-TV with a selection of DVDs to play in the DVD player, there is also free wifi internet broadband and a selection of books. For those who enjoy a little competition there is a pool table and dartboard in the garage converted to a games room with a fan, pool table lighting and bar table and stools for added comfort. Facing south within the screened enclosure is the swimming pool which is not overlooked, this can be accessed via sliding screens from both Master bedrooms as well as the lounge, for safety and peace of mind there is a 4 foot child safety fence surrounding the pool which can be easily removed should you so wish. There are of course tables, chairs and loungers so that you can relax after a hot day or stay home, relax and soak up the sun; you can enjoy breakfast by the pool in the cool of the morning. In the evenings there is lighting to the pool and pool area providing a very comfortable area to watch the sun go down. The pool overlooks a lake beyond the conservation area teeming with wild life, you are likely see the tall Sandhill Cranes strut past and some of the many exotic creatures that inhabit the area which include eagles, hawks and cardinals. The villa benefits from true 24 hour management and support which in the event of a problem or mishap are only a phone call away, for your convenience a safe is provided, as is a generous supply of bed linen and towels. For those with small children a high chair and stroller are provided.

About the Owner

We live in the UK and have both recently retired. We have 2 Daughters and 4 Grandchildren all of whom love not only the Theme Parks but also of course the warm and sunny climate allowing them to swim in their own pool.

We have been to the USA so many times we have lost count, and have been fortunate to visit many of the 50 states and see the many and diverse sites that the USA has to offer.

As Golf lovers Davenport allows us easy access to so many great courses at very reasonable rates.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A home from home. On a gated community, which is beautifully maintained, this house is nicely decorated and very clean, stocked with everything you could need during your stay.

The house also benefited from very convenient keyless entry system - No more forgetting keys .

We enjoyed being able to come back from our days out and relax in our own Private Pool, and use of the Games Room.

A very handy information pack is available, which includes information about the House, Theme Parks and the many local Golf Courses/facilities.

There is a Publix’s (Supermarket) and other shops/restaurants just minutes away, very useful after a long day out.

Perfect central location not only for the Theme Parks, (Disney is only a 10 minute drive away), but the main routes for getting around Florida.

We will definitely stay here again, so calming and relaxing but everything is close - Perfect

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Only stayed two nights, but wish we could have stayed MUCH longer. The pool was very nice and I loved that it was deeper (five feet) on one end allowing me to tread water. A pair of sandhill cranes appeared just outside the pool enclosure one morning, serenading us with a series of bugle calls, and I loved the juxtaposition of the area's avian residents coming to observe the (human) animals in a "cage" The kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were also very nice. Having two master bedrooms, both with patio doors overlooking the pool was perfect as our party included a set of grandparents and a set of parents. The two children each had their own bedroom. The living area was nicely decorated and stocked with books. Very enjoyable stay and would love to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Alas we are unable to guarantee a visit by the Sand Hill Cranes although their dance is a sight to behold. Thank you very much for the lovely review and we look forward to welcoming you in the future.

A beautiful home from home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa has everything you would need and could wish for in a holiday home and was presented in immaculate condition throughout.The private pool gave us a lovely placed to relax before and after busy days visiting the theme parks. The villa is in a gated community which was quiet, well maintained and perfectly situated for easy access to I4 and all of Orlando's attractions as well as a large supermarket, and restaurants close by.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and hope to go back one day and enjoy the fabulous golf courses near by.

Ideal location, in a quiet and secure area

  • 5 of 5

The villa met our expectations from the pictures and description. The gated development was well maintained and clean. The villa was well positioned, with a south facing pool area overlooking a conservation area providing a degree of privacy and was quiet.

The location proved to be ideal with the nearby supermarket and restaurants. Access to the I4 was only a few minutes away and straightforward with other routes to Disney or Kissimmee providing alternatives if required.

Would be happy to recommend to friends and family

Great Villa Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of holidaying in this villa on more than one occasion and indeed have already booked to return next year.

The villa is located within a small gated community and has wonderful views overlooking the lake to the rear. Whilst relaxing in the pool/patio area you will quite often see the local wildlife. The quiet location is ideal for guests to relax after a hectic day at one of the numerous attractions and theme parks that Orlando has to offer.

The main theme parks are no more than a 10 minute drive away. Also nearby are many golf courses which are very well maintained and offer club hire. Within easy driving distance are a number of excellent restaurants and we would thoroughly recommend Manny's which does very good steaks. Should you prefer to self cater, there is a Publix supermarket very close by.

Easy access to Interstate 4 allows us to visit either the Gulf or Atlantic coasts within a couple of hours and both are well worth taking the time to do. We found the information booklet in the villa to be most helpful when planning our visits to either local or not so local attractions.

The villa itself is tastefully decorated and maintained to a very high standard. It is also well equipped with everything you could possibly need to ensure you feel totally at home and very comfortable.

We have stayed at a number of other villas in the Orlando area and have yet to find one that comes anywhere near the quality of Palm Cove Villa. The villa is superbly appointed and enhanced by its ideal location overlooking the lake in a quiet gated community.

All in all we highly recommend this property for any family wishing to take advantage of the wonderful Florida sunshine and experience all it has to offer.

From the Owner

It has always been a dream of ours to own a small piece of Florida and our retirement gave us both the opportunity and impetus to finally realize that dream. Having spent many months searching websites we travelled to Orlando in April of 2013 and after a couple of days were shown Town Centre Reserve and of course Palm Cove Villa, we knew immediately we had found what we were looking for which was a Pool Deck and Pool that faces South and overlooks a conservation area and lake beyond. On a small and secure community that is indeed picture perfect and well managed by our HOA. It is such a tranquil place to stay yet within a few minutes of Disney and the other Theme Parks just beyond. It also has the advantage of being close to Interstate 4 and a short drive to the Gulf Coast.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Clearwater Beach at 70 Miles


The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are in easy reach and only a 70 mile drive along Interstate 4 to the many beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast


Car Hire is essential to allow you to take advantage of the many attractions in and around the Orlando area. Orlando International Airport is approximately 25 miles Northeast of the villa and will take between 30-40 minutes in a car.

From the Owner

The location of our villa allows us to benefit from some of the many Golf Courses that can be found in and around Orlando. With Davenport, South of Orlando a short drive gives us access to so many more great courses. Experience has taught us that Orlando has so much more to offer than just the World Famous Theme and Water Parks. There are all sorts of great entertainment from Rodeos to Ice Hockey and from Airboat Rides to Great Architecture all of which is easily accessed from Palm Cove Villa.
