About Wendy and Joe White

We are a close knit family. Wendy is the Principal of a large College in Merseyside. Joe is the Headteacher of a large Primary School in Lancashire.

Our adult children are Kate and Ben.

Kate is a doctor in Preston and Chorley Trust. Ben is an Economics Student at Manchester University.

Kate was recently married to Jonny - a teacher from Leyland.

Wendy and Joe White purchased this villa in 2003

Why Wendy and Joe White chose Davenport

The villa really stood out for us. (Literally and metaphorically!) We've had it a long time now - and are delighted and immensely proud of its quality, location and views.

It sits in a prominent and very private position at the top of one of the highest points in Florida looking across the golf course and the panoramic views of Wellington Woods in the distance.

Because the plot is so large, it allows the unique combination of privacy (through not being overlooked) and views. This is probably the most private deck in this part of Florida - which is important to us.

The villa is aesthetically very pleasing and is laid out extremely well for families sharing the accommodation - so when it became available - we snapped it up!! We have been delighted with the villa ever since and await with great joy our opportunity to "get away from it all" and spend quality time sitting on the pool deck and "chilling out!"

We narrowed down to Highlands Reserve since, from the outset, the development gave the impression that it was going to be high calibre and prestigious. It has certainly lived up to that expectation. We hoped that, due to being on a golf course, the area would be highly maintained - and that is exactly what has happened! Highlands Reserve has become a very sought after location for rental villas and justifies its excellent reputation by shrewd management of the houses and environment by owners, the golf course owners and the home owners association.

Its a genuinely wonderful place to stay due to its quality - and builds further upon this due to its easy access to the major attractions.

Potential guests would, of course, expect us to say "we love it" - but we can say so with great sincerity!! We absolutely love it - its wonderful!!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is situated at the end of a cul de sac in one of the most prestigious developments available for short term letting (Highlands Reserve.)

Being literally at the end of the cul de sac means that the plot is extra large, fanning out is a wide sweep / arc of land to ensure that the nearest houses are further away than pretty well any other villa in the area.

To the rear of the property, the nearest villas are significantly lower in height - making it difficult for them to see "up the hill" further enhancing the privacy.

We invite potential guests considering the property to visit the privacy section of our own detailed website - where the issue is dealt with in greater depth.

Inside the property, the villa is equipped to very high standards. We basically threw away the "package" furniture - employed an interior design expert and set the villa out beautifully.

The layout oozes quality and style - and the combination of a lot of space in terms of square area (for two families for example) combined with "Cathedral Ceilings" really establish a deep sense of space and volume - which we believe is extremely important for guests when, for example, two families are sharing the villa. One's own space is very important - and that can be achieved here.

One of the other great "unique selling points" of the villa is the hot tub. Its simply wonderful - and ideal for weary limbs at the end of the busy park type days where legs have done rather more walking than they are used to!!! Its a luxury that no-one should pass up. It heats to a maximum of 104 degrees (optimum is about 102) and really soaks away the aches and pains and invigorates the soul!!

Wonderful vacation villa in prime location

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just returned from a wonderful stay at this fantastic villa, -it really is every bit as great as described and no photos can really do justice to it's prime location , with an unobstructed view overlooking the golf course.

The house is very clean, beautifully maintained and spacious yet still homely. Fixtures and fittings are of high quality.

Mr and Mrs White, the owners, were very helpful, immediately answering any queries .

As a result I will recommend the villa to family and friends. The family we vacationed with are also already planning their return. But you should plan ahead, since this is a popular villa.

Locally, there's a handy supermarket and we found a really nice Chinese takeaway and a pizza place called Mia's which was a firm favourite of my kids.

I can't think of anything to complain about, except that the time went too quickly.

There's no other villa in the vicinity to compete in terms of location, and you'll fully appreciate this when you arrive.

Fantastic property! Would highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa looked amazing on the web site & from the minute we drove up to it, it has MORE than lived up to our expectations- so huge & imposing from the outside & very luxurious inside!!

The location overlooking the golf course was perfect, with lovely views & beautiful sunsets. The property was very clean & is well maintained. There is so much room that 2 families with children could feel very comfortable sharing this house. There are so many 'extra' features to keep everyone happy, from the games room in the garage to the video games area upstairs. It was great having 2 book cases full of novels, including some childrens' books. A nice change from e books!The owners were very helpful & replied promptly to all our enquiries, making the whole rental experience easy. Although we were only a party of two, the rental rates were still much better value than an equivalent level of hotel accommodation, as you only pay per week for the whole villa & not per person. We will definitely be recommending this villa to friends & family. Hopefully when we return, they will be able to join us & share our experience!

There are so many amenities within a few minutes drive of the villa - supermarkets, restaurants etc & it is within easy reach of Disney parks. It's a very quiet, safe environment.

Great Place in a fantastic area

  • 5 of 5

A great property in an exclusive residential area. The property is very spacious and fabulous for kids. My two boys didn't know whether to be in the pool, games room or on the Wii!! The property has all facilities. The pool area is lovely and we enjoyed lazing on the sunbeds while watching the children play in the pool. The owner Joe was very helpful to our enquiries. We highly recommend staying at this property.

The property is a 2 minute drive to the local supermarket and a great restaurant called Applebees - the boys loved the half rack of ribs!

We were about 20 minutes from Disney Magic Kingdom/Disney Studios/Epcot and 30 minutes from Universal/Islands of Adventure and Sea World.

Excellent Villa: Fully Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa during June 2011. The house is beautifully appointed with every imaginable luxury.

The deck is very private and looks out onto Highlands Reserve Golf Course. Looking westward, some of the sunsets were stunning - absolutely stunning!

The villa was beautifully clean upon our arrival and is well situated for trips to Disney and other theme parks.

The place is huge - the photograohs don't go close to doing the size of the place justice. We had a most wonderful forntight - a real holiday of a lifetime.

The hot tub was immense. A real pleasure to soak away the aches from pounding round the parks!

Thanks very much indeed Wendy and Joe for the use of your great home. There is no doubt we will be back....just as soon as we clear the credit card bill (!!)

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was absolutely gorgeous and a home away from home! The villa was equipped with just about everything we needed. The gameroom kept the kids and adults busy. The rooms were clean and the master suite was beautiful. This villa is in an excellent location and is very spacious. You will not be dissatisfied with this villa. I would stay here again.
