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 Watersong

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.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four with two teenagers, staying for two weeks across Nov. The house was well maintained and presented. The South West extended deck was a real highlight and we loved spending time in the very hot ‘hot tub’. Everything was as detailed and our needs were more than met. Good location 7miles from Championsgate area of the I4, with plenty eating and grocery options close by. The view and variety of animals passing the house was also great to see. Claire was prompt in all our communication and our damage deposit was refunded very quickly on our return. One of the best villas we have booked in our stays in Florida.

Beautiful, clean and all you can ask for in a villa.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a brilliant family holiday in Florida helped by staying at this beautiful villa. It was very clean and was beautifully arranged when we arrived. Lots of little touches like hair dryers and straighteners. And a buggy and car seat in the garage, which was a godsend for the parks, even though my grandchild had just turned 5!!! The lovely pool area and Jacuzzi were where we spent most of our time relaxing after a busy day. There is nothing but woodland behind you and the cranes were a great sight flying down behind the villa, which kept my granddaughter amused. I would definitely recommend this villa and if we ever return to Florida for another family holiday, we will return to this villa in Watersong.

You won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

First off thank you Claire for the ease and help with booking your lovely home. This was my 5th visit to Florida and my family's first and I wanted it to be special and this place made it just that. This is by far the best villa I have stayed in and is equipped with everything you need and then some. From hair dryers to pool tables this house has it all and is immaculate.

The place is huge with entertainment and relaxation around every corner.

My two young boys (8 and 5) loved the air hockey, pool table and table football and not to mention the pool which we all couldn't get enough of.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking of coming to Florida to visit the theme parks or not, as it is far enough away from the mouse to get some sanity back and relax and close enough to lose it all again tomorrow with all the wild rides which the parks have on offer!

And when relaxing by the pool don't be surprised if you have some of the locals take an interest, with tortoises, raccoons, snakes and large birds all spotted from poolside!!

The villa is very private and secluded as it's situated at the end of a cul-de-sac and I would say you would rarely see anybody else other than maybe Mr Raccoon.

All conveniences are close by Publix supermarket, various restaurants and take aways and a petrol station.

Will certainly hope to return here soon, thank you again Claire from Pete, Katie, Ty and Zach.

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 .
