About the property

Villa in Solterra Resort, Davenport, Kissimmee, Florida Orlando, USA - PLEASE BEWARE OF SCAM EMAILS ASKING FOR FULL PAYMENT & GIVING A DISCOUNT - THEY ARE FAKE!

Solterra Villa has been professionally decorated by an interior designer to ensure quality and attractive looks throughout the home. It has the most amazing uninterrupted lake views from its south-west facing pool deck. The sunsets will take your breath away as you look across the countryside and watch the birds and wildlife in the conservation area. The villa is on a quiet court just a stone's throw from the fantastic new Solterra Clubhouse. An open plan floor design ensures all guests are able to enjoy the home together. Lots of seating and a huge custom kitchen with granite mean it's a great place for entertaining either enjoying the indoor dining rooms or the outdoor patio area where there are two 6-seater dining sets and sun loungers with side tables.

About Kathy D.

I am an ex-IT professional, on a career break as a stay-at-home mother of three girls. My husband James and I live in Canada, originally from England and are a military family who have lived in various places both with the RAF and the RCAF.

Kathy D. purchased this villa in 2014

Why Kathy D. chose Disney / Orlando

My husband James, myself and our three daughters have enjoyed visiting Walt Disney World, Universal & other resorts many times staying at various resorts in the Orlando area.

We chose Solterra Resort due to its beautiful location surrounded by conservation areas and beautiful countryside, along with the security that this virtual-manned gated community provides.

The new clubhouse has amazing facilities and a large family friendly pool area, playpark, tennis courts and beach volleyball court.

All these amenities, the location of our villa (completed in Feb 2014) on the resort, the resort's closeness to Disney without the road noise of living off the US-27 helped us to decide that Solterra Resort was perfect for our newly built vacation home.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is located on one of the best lots in Solterra Resort. Our south-west facing screened pool enclosure enjoys the most incredible sunsets and overlooks a sparkling pond where you can watch birds and wildlife across to the countryside beyond.

We chose to extend our pool deck to enjoy space outside for entertaining and sunbathing and added extra outdoor furnishings for this purpose.

Inside the high quality finishes of the home have been accented by little extras we added: granite surfaces, under cabinet lighting in the kitchen, USB wall chargers and beautiful soft furnishings.

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from a two week vacation in Florida and staying at this villa was the icing on the cake. My family and I have spent numerous holidays in the Davenport area of Orlando and stayed at villas ranging from excellent to average. However, this is easily the best one so far, size is easily big enough for 8 people with room to spare, furnishing and decor is beautiful, location is spot on and the local club house is like a well-appointed spa. Communication with Kathy was easy and the support we received from the agents while away was perfect. Location in relation to the numerous Florida attractions (Disney, Universal, Sea World etc) is great with none being more than 30 minutes away and simple to find. Local shops and restaurants are good (Publix, Chilis, McDonalds) and a ridiculously cheap 'gas station'. Do be conscious that the area is still 'work in progress' so some building work is going on. However, this is certainly not obtrusive and, other than having to slalom through a few work vans in the morning, does not cause an issue. I honestly cannot fault the villa and will certainly be hoping to stay again the next time we visit my favourite part of the world (other than my home town) in 2016.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at other villas on two previous Florida holidays, this was definitely the best with everything our family group could need. After long days at the theme parks it was easy to call in at the nearby Championsgate supermarket or takeaways and return here to admire the unspoilt view over the lake while the kids played happily in the pool. The SW aspect also meant that we got to see a lot of great sunsets. With 6 bedrooms there was plenty of space, and all the adults were delighted with the high standard of accomodation. We also found the resort clubhouse was a good place to spend a relaxing day with its great pool, free coffee and the two tennis courts. Kathy and the management team were always helpful and answered any questions we had ahead of arrival so that the villa felt like a real home from home as soon as we arrived. Great memories, great villa !

Beautiful home and resort

  • 5 of 5

The house way extremely clean and equipped with everything we needed. It is decorated very tastefully. We vacationed with my family there were 10 of us and we had more than enough room.The kids loved the game room, pool and resort pool so much they didn't want to go the the parks. The pool, yard and garbage was taken care of on a daily basis. We will definitely come back to this beautiful home on our next vacation to Disney. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
