About the property

If you want to stay somewhere upmarket, with the feel of a top-end hotel, then this is the property for you and your guests. Far more appealling than other conventional basic properties on the market in some of the older resorts, this stunning and luxurious air-conditioned 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom vacation home, with private swimming pool and beautifully landscaped garden, is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the brand new exclusive Solterra Resort in Davenport, Orlando.

Residing in a beautiful secure gated community, the resort features a large contemporary clubhouse with cabanas, extensive fitness centre, tennis, basket ball and volley ball courts, lagoon style swimming pool with beach entry (ideal for children and adults alike), a waterfall feature, water slide and Jacuzzi, plus a children's playground and lawn.

This villa is truly stunning, contemporary and luxurious. This is Florida living at its very best.

This new (November 2013) two storey property includes brand new contemporary and superior quality furnishings with designer bedding for a wonderful nights sleep after a busy day at the theme parks. The whole villa has been designed with comfort and style in mind for the discerning traveller.

The open-plan aspect downstairs includes a large dining room, kitchen with breakfast bar and family room leading onto the private pool area. The fully equipped kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and contains everything you will need during your stay. There are 2 large master bedrooms, each with king beds and large en-suite bathrooms, including twin basins, a bath tub and walk in shower facilities, plus 3 other queen double/twin rooms, each with bathroom facilities. Additional features of this stunning property include a large TV/movie room & work area and a fabulous games room, including an 8ft slate pool table, air hockey and foosball table, a dart board and table & bar stools. This is a large 28×14 ft south facing private pool also including a spa, with a screened pool deck, lanai area, modern patio furniture and sun loungers, overlooking a quiet a conservation area, so it is extremely quiet and peaceful and not at all overlooked. In addition to this home easily accommodating up to 11 adults, for families with young children, we have provided a baby high chair, travel cot/crib and stroller/pushchair for complimentary use. Linens and towels are also included.


The property is accessible via an electronic keyless entry system, so there is no need to worry about collecting keys before/upon arrival. We ensure all our guests have all the necessary information on how to access the property prior to your departure. We also have a management company looking after our property, situated close by in Davenport, who can assist you should you have any queries after you arrive.

We aim to provide a high level of service to ensure your holiday is stress free and everything you dreamed of.


The villa and resort is extremely quiet and peaceful, yet it is located a very short drive away from the Interstate I-4, which means it's got very easy access to Disney and other major theme parks, from 15 to 20 minutes drive away. And, it also means that you don't get stuck on some of the other congested highways and side roads when you are driving home late in the evening after a long day at the theme parks.

About Pamela Syrett

My husband and I live in England and have 2 young children. We love travelling and purchased this brand new property as a vacation home.

Pamela Syrett purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pamela Syrett chose Davenport

Our children just love Disney and Universal and this home is ideally situated, close to all the theme parks. It's situated in a brand new gated community, so it's safe and secure, and has access to a fantastic clubhouse with fitness centre, resort swimming pool, water-slide and children's play area. The property is also located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac/turning circle and since the back of the property is south facing and overlooking a conservation area, we think it's one of the best plots in the resort area.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has a South facing private pool, jacuzzi spa and garden, overlooking a conservation area with lots of interesting wild-life. We have converted the garage into an extensive games room. We've also included large 50" web enabled TVs, Bluray DVD player and free WiFi. Fun for all the family!

Having studied interior design, I have furnished the interior to a very high standard, with lots of contemporary and luxurious furnishings, and have taken pride in making this home both visually appealing, but also extremely comfortable for all to enjoy.

As well as the obvious theme parks, there are wonderful golf courses close by and the villa has easy access to I4, with quick links to the airport, East, West and Southern coasts.

LUXURIOUS.......definitely describes Palm Retreat Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are from New Brunswick Canada and were certainly not disappointed when we arrived for our week long vacation in early March 2018. The villa was everything and more than was advertised. This villa was neat and tidy, exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 small children. The kitchen was very well equipped and the mattresses and bedding were top notch. The pool area was clean and well maintained with the sun all day. Also we took advantage of the club house pool and waterslide which was an excellent added bonus. Pamela provided an information packet which was very detailed and most helpful. We would absolutely recommend this villa and hope to stay there again.

Beautiful home had everything 3 young families could want or need!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with three families with 4 children under 5. We had everything we needed to enjoy our time, relax, have fun, enjoy the pool, games room and hot tub. Plenty of room to find a quit place or for all to enjoy time together. It had all the necessities of home and the luxuries of a vacation. Would return in a heart beat.

Fantastic location. Owners were really helpful

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic holiday staying in this lovely property. We felt at home and had everything we could possibly need at the home to make our stay enjoyable. The location of the pool area made it very private and quiet. Would highly recommend a stay here. Resort much much better than others we’ve stayed at before with fantastic facilities at the clubhouse. Whole family had a brilliant time. Owner was extremely helpful too. Couldn’t ask for more.

Excellent. Truly an exceptional villa!

  • 5 of 5

Palm retreat villa was stunning. The pictures don't do it justice. The wifi could've been better as it was very intermittent which meant watching Netflix was impossible but other than that it was perfect. The pool isn't huge but ample for our family of six. The villa accommodated us easily, infact there would have easily been room for another family. Pamela had provided everything you could want in a villa (even down to sandwich bag clips for your lunch). I can't recommend this property highly enough.

Amazing and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We are from Vancouver Canada and stayed at this gorgeous villa from September 23 to October 2/2017. Checkin was easy and when we arrived at the house we were incredibly happy. The pictures do not do it justice. It was a home away from home. Beds were comfy, kitchen was stocked. The pool and sauna was so nice. We used it every single night. Lots of TVs and sitting areas and the furniture and decor were beautiful. The villa is also conveniently located with a short drive to all the parks and restaurants. I would recommend this villa to everyone. You will not be disappointed. We plan on returning. The owner Pamela was great to work with and answered all our questions. I mentioned we were celebrating my 50th birthday and there were beautiful flowers, a card, and champagne waiting for me. Such a nice touch. And my daughters boyfriend proposed. Such a memorable and fantastic trip. Thank you so much Pam. 😊�😘�
