About Claire Hodgson

We are The Hodgson's, Claire and John. We have twins who are 12 years old. We love to travel and our favourite family holiday destination has always been Florida. We love it so much we married there in 1999.

Claire Hodgson purchased this villa in 2013

Why Claire Hodgson chose Davenport

As we love Florida so much its the perfect place for us to have a holiday home. We have been looking for our piece of Florida for many years and eventually we found the fabulous resort of Watersong. Our home is a haven away from busy days at the Parks and has great access to reach the beautiful beaches in Florida.

What makes this villa unique

When looking for our home it was important to us that we had no rear neighbours and a view over conservation. Our location in Watersong has all that and more. The extended pool/spa deck is fabulous for outdoor eating, catching the Florida sun and spotting the wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a fantastic time your beautiful villa (the best one yet after 7 visits).

We enjoyed all the wild life that visited - turtles, armadillos and an otter. We quickly named the lovely big birds Bill and Bob.

The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious and had everything we needed. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, that was so kind of you.

We will be back.

A real Dream Haven

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay, thank you Claire for making our holiday so easy to book, especially as it was our first time to Florida. The accommodation is outstanding and in a lovely location. It is so spacious with several sitting areas, beautifully decorated, immaculate and with all mod cons. Lots to keep us entertained, including the pool, soccer table and air hockey, not to mention TV and playstation games.

I would definitely stay here again - for longer next time and would recommend it 100%. Thank you so much for letting us share your home.

My family loved are stay and all the great wildlife, racoons,armadillo, turtle and cranes . The house was exactly as described if not better . The comunication with the owner was excellent and always abliging to answer questions quickly, will not hessitate to return . The pool and linea area were better in real life . The house was ideally situated for the parks and restaurants but quiet and peaceful when neeeded . My children loved the games room in the garage and air hockey upstaires. The best holiday house for us, large and spaciouse, better than pictures show .

We loved the Florida Dream Haven!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Florida Dream Haven for 7 nights over our spring break in 2017. Our group was made up of my family and my brother's family which consisted of 4 adults and 6 kids. It was truly an amazing vacation. The house is exactly as described. Everything was very well kept and spotless. The management company obviously does a great job cleaning and the pool was even checked out as a routine inspection during our stay. We were especially impressed with the pool area which is where we spent the majority of our time. The pool/pool deck and privacy of the outdoor space was one of the biggest draws of this property. The pool was much larger than we anticipated and the pool deck had ample room for all 10 of us. Being the last house at the end of the cul-de-sac we rarely saw anyone and felt like we had our very own corner of paradise.

This being our very first vacation as a family with young children, we were a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect. Claire was fantastic about answering all of our questions promptly and very thoroughly. She was great to work with and responded in a very timely manner with extensive answers related to the house and the surrounding area. I was very impressed with her communication and she made me feel like she truly cared about the quality of our vacation. It is obvious she takes pride in their home.

In terms of restaurants we didn't eat out a lot. We ordered Papa Johns pizza twice, but otherwise bought groceries from the Publix (under 10 minutes) and the nearest Walmart (about a 15 minute drive). We found the Publix to actually have better prices on many items because of sales which we were surprised by. If you are looking for souvenirs the Walmart did have a really nice selection of all sorts of Florida and Disney items at prices MUCH lower than the theme parks.

Overall, the house had everything we could have possibly wanted and more! Watersong Resort is a beautiful, quiet gated community which made us feel safe and secure. The location is perfect - close enough to the fun and excitement, but far enough away to make you feel like you can truly relax. We enjoyed our time so much we e-mailed Claire the last night of our stay to book for 2018! We can't wait to go back!

Clean quiet and relaxing home

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of four myself my wife and two girls ages 6 and 9. Some of our criteria for a Florida vacation home are, pool with some privacy, room to get away from each other, reasonable distance from attractions, and to be comfortable during our time away from the park.

Our arrival day we found the home easly, we got there around 5:00 pm so there was some traffic to get through but it was fine. We ordered a pizza from Hungry Howies pizza on the way and picked it up on the way.

As you arrive you go through the center gate the watch person was very friendly and helpful, the home was easy to find and looked great! The arrival code was for the key box on the door jam not the key pad on the door :-)

We wanted to get going early the next day but I did not feel like going out for food so I decided to do it in the am. The only place I found open early was the Walmart Supercenter on 27 about 20min away (the closer Publix did not open till 7am) We also used the much closer Publix it was fine but lacked a good supply of vegetables we are use to.

We did Wild Florida, Legoland, Busch Gardens, Honeymoon Island Park, and Disney all within an reasonable drive for us. We did have some traffic issues but that seems to be all over that area.

The home was great for us a few things we would like to see are a pump of some kind for the pool toys, and the acents was at 74 it said it could go to 72 but we could not change it. We are from New England so it did seem warm to us but that might be an individual thing and it was not a deal breaker.

There were an acceptable amount of kitchen supply, lots of towels and linnen, tv's (that the kids loved) everywhere, we could not get the Playstation to work but I may be too old to do it :-) The pool area was great I would like so see some lighting for the table for eating alfresco after sunset but it was not bad.

Over all it was great we saved some money vs being closer to Disney, the driving did totally bother me at all (we used Old Lake Wilson Rd most of the time to get to Disney) I would totally recommend this home to anyone!!

Thanks the Gallant family, Jason, Adrienne, Norah, and Eliza

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This house met all our expectations! The pictures are an accurate depiction; the descriptions are spot-on except for the 'ceiling fans' amenities note. The only ceiling fan is in the garage game room. The pool area is the highlight - the extended deck area is wonderful - the pool heat didn't cheat on warmth and was perfect!! Nothing better than swimming after dark! A storm blew two pool enclosure screens loose while we were there-a quick call to the management company and the screens were repaired by days' end. A lovely stay and I will be recommending to anyone I know traveling to the Orlando area. thank you Claire!
