Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Davenport Lakes Estate - New Moon Villa, The Palms

Self-catered villa in peaceful location close to golf courses and Disney Parks

Welcome to our Florida holiday home web page, which we hope you find helpful. The villa has 4 bed/2 baths and a lovely scenic screened pool and patio area close to Disney, sleeps max 8 + child cots if required. The Palms Lake Davenport Estates offers a free communal pool, basketball, tennis courts & a kiddies playground with numerous nearby golf courses & Lake Davenport is a 5 min drive away for fishing. 4 beds; master with queen bed & en-suite (tub/walk-in shower & closet/twin sinks); 2 further queen doubles & a twin. 2nd family bathroom - shower/ tub. Formal dining/living room leading to more casual open-plan family room/kitchen/breakfast room with full amenities. Cable TV & DVD in master bedroom & living room,TV in 2nd double and flat screen cable TV in family room. Fully air conditioned, fast free Internet connection & Sat Nav provided. Safety alarmed gorgeous private screen pooled area providing 8 sun beds & alfresco dining. Small welcome pack, bedding, all towels supplied.

The newly fitted (Feb 12) scenic pool privacy screen will allow in the beautiful sun light, but provide complete privacy for you and your family whilst on holiday. It is a unique and stunning tree lined scene which adds to your relaxation.

Safety and Extras: The French windows that open out onto the extended pool area are alarmed for your safety and peace of mind.

All local phone calls and internet access is free of charge.

A satnav, with all major attractions saved in it, is available for your use free of charge if desired.

A small charcoal BBQ is provided free of charge or a gas BBQ can be hired for the week through our manager.

Cribs and highchairs can be hired for a small cost through our manager who ensures that they are immaculate and fully working, adhering to all safety standards.

Distances to Disney: We have seen other villa owners in our vicinity advertise their property as only 10 minutes from Disney. This is slightly stretching the truth. The Palms is a lovely quiet area 20 minutes by car to Disney Main Gate. We have done the journey in 15 minutes, but we hit an exceptionally quiet period on the roads and so 20 minutes is more the average. We love the drive, as it goes past many great looking restaurants and shopping areas. For example, the drive to Sea World takes you right past a brilliant Outlet Centre that houses numerous high street named shops with goods so reduced as to really make it worthwhile a stop in.

Our own Berry Town Centre is the small shopping and restaurant area near the Palms and is literally less than 3 minutes drive away with the larger Wal-Mart store only 10 minutes away.

Military Discount: For those guests who are either in the American, UK or other allied Armed Forces, you will find that many shops offer military discount if requested. However, we suggest that you check out the Sea World website, as most of their parks offer either free access for the Service person and up to 4 family members or a reduced price for ex-military personnel. This is certainly the case for Sea World and Busch Gardens, which we think is an amazing offer from this company who just ask for ID to prove connection with the Armed Forces.

About Catherine or Mark

Catherine was born in Germany, as her farther was in the British Armed Forces, but from the age of 7 she was raised in Yorkshire. She joined the Royal Air Force in 1985 and enjoys a career as a Logistics Officer. Her husband, Mark, is in the British Army and between them they have 3 teenage children who all love visiting their villa in Florida.

Catherine or Mark purchased this villa in 2010

Why Catherine or Mark chose Davenport Lakes Estate

Cathy and Mark chose New Moon Villa as they particularly loved the fact that the pool was not directly overlooked, as so many of the villa pools are, and they really liked the open plan living area. The villa is a well loved second home to Mark and Cathy's family. Mark says that Cathy keeps spending out on too many extras for the villa, making it more homely and beautiful than a usual rental property. He is likely right, but Cathy wants her guests to feel as if they are in a really loved home. It is smart and modern, but cosy with a friendly feeling. It is immaculatley kept by their managers, Robert and Emma. Mark and Cathy are righlty proud of New Moon Villa which is loved and cared for, pretty and immaculate and for what it costs to rent, it is an absolute bargain. Their reviews are genuine and they have been blessed with guests who have treated their home with care and respect. They are now into their 4th year of business and have guests returning for the 3rd time, which speaks volumes.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located on a well cared for private estate which homes many locals as well as other rental properties. Christmas time is especially beautiful as the Amercians go to so much trouble decorating the outside of their homes and some are truly stunning. The villa is close enough to Disney to make it really practical to visit daily (15 to 20 mins), but far enough away to give guests the peace, rest and recuperation required on a holiday. It is also very close to brilliant shops, and lovely restaurants.

The villa is only one hour from many beaches and other places of interest, so for those who do not want to go to parks every day, there are other great choices within a good driving distance.

The privacy screened pool is unique and has received many laudatory comments. The villa was already in a great location and not directly overlooked, but the privacy screen really does allow for escapism and total privacy when sun bathing or using the pool. It allows the sunshine in, but gives you a feeling of safety and security.

The two lounges are a real boon in the villa, especially for larger parties. It allows that little extra 'me' space if you don't want to be in the main area or to watch a TV programme that no one else is interested in. It means that even with 8 people in the home, you never feel crowded in or claustraphobic.

Cathy and Mark have kept their prices relatively low to reflect the current financial climate and to make the villa affordable for normal families who have to pay really expenisve flight costs or park tickets. Visiting Disney Land is not a cheap holiday option, but the villa allows for luxury without breaking the bank giving guests the chance to experience the true fun of Florida .

Guestbook comments from the owner

The review below was sent directly to the owner after he was unable to get it directly on line through the web site due to a technical fault:



Hi Cathy,

The villa was just as lovely and welcoming as you see it on the website. We arrived on Monday 29th July and stayed for 14 nights and nobody wanted to go home as the villa had everything you would need to make your stay a memorable one. I booked the villa direct with Cathy the owner and she made sure it was all hassle free and would not hesitate to book her lovely villa again and would certainly recommend her to family or friends.We have been to Florida 5 times now and this was by

far the best villa we have stayed in. The villa is well situated for all the theme parks and if you are looking for a quality steak house the Longhorn Steakhouse or Logan's come highly recommended.When you have had a long journey and want to relax the bottle of wine or tea and coffee Cathy provides for her guests is very welcome. Her manager Rob and his family are on the end of a phone should you need them and they are very pleasant and professional. We spent a lot of time in the pool

as it gets the sun most of the day and the other nice thing is it has got a separate area with sun loungers which are of top quality and comfortable.So anyone who is looking for a villa and a hassle free holiday then look no further speak to Cathy and your holiday is sorted.Thank you again Cathy for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Regards

Barry,Christine & Family

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank, Catherine and Mark, for making our last three winter years so wonderful. It is sad we will not be returning next years, but do plan to return in the future. It is a Homeaway from home. The wonderful property manager Rob is a joy to have around, not just for pool cleaning, but a nice chat from time to time. Anyone looking to rent this home will not be disappointed.

Thanks again,

Bev and Mike LeRue

Exceeds Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had another fantastic stay at this villa (this is our second). It's a true home from home - everything you could wish for and more. The pool and sun terrace area were amazing. The 2 large living areas make it great for 6 adults to spread out and the bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable. Far exceeds all expectations! Hope to stay again - soon!!

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice rental. Close to any thing you would want to find in the Orlando area. The pool was great and enough room for my family (mom, dad and my teenage sons). The only thing keeping me from giving 5stars was the air conditioner. Notes in the rental say to not set the temp below 74 or the unit would freeze - did not quite understand why. 74 degrees did not cool the home during the day and turning off the unit while out and about made it even tougher to cool when you return. All in all it was good rental and we enjoyed our time there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Robert - it is much appreciated and I'm glad you liked the villa and had a lovely holiday. I was disappointed to read about your problems with the aircon as it was the first that I'd heard of it. I wonder, did you contact Rob, our manager to ask for his help if you were not 100% happy with the temperature? I've never had any guest complain about the temperature before, and we also stay at the villa a lot ourselves at all times of the year and have never had any problems. The aircon unit is only a few years old and is regularly serviced so there shouldn't have been an issue. The temperature setting was that advised to me by the aircon engineer, but I will now double check what he said about the setting. I have also contacted my manager to ask him to check on the unit although the present guests say that they are very happy with the temperature. It's most odd and am just glad that you still loved the villa. To future guests, if you were to stay and our villa and found anything not 100% to your satisfaction, then I'd hope that you'd not hesitate to contact me or my manager immediately. I'm sure that in almost all cases, we'd be able to iron out any problems, however minor, and make your stay more comfortable. I make this point in all my arrival paperwork and I absolutely mean it. Please do not just put up with anything that you feel is not right and then report the problem afterwards when it is too late for us to help you. We are here to assist and make your stay as wonderful as possible. Kindest regards Cathy

Exactly as described and can not recommend it high

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing holiday and your villa is beautiful, as described and better and so tastefully decorated. Rob and family were great and very friendly.

Swimming pool is such a bonus and so pretty in the evening with the underwater lights. Air conditioning was excellent and the washer and dryer worked really well and such large capacities. So much to do and visit and plenty of places to eat and shop very close to the villa. Its a quiet area and lovely for relaxing at the pool.

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

Faultless villa: spotless, lovely large pool, huge open plan living area and excellent service from both Catherine in the UK and Rob in Florida.

The sitting area outside is a nice sun trap and the pool was perfect size. I'd recommend the heating in November though; money well spent.

Good location approximately 30 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from Disney. Nice quiet street only a few hundred yards off the main road.

The Palms is set on an established community just 1.5 miles south of the junction of the 192 and 27. It is a mixture of holiday and residential homes, so at festive times, such as Christmas, it has a feel of the 'real America” as residents decorate their homes. There is a supermarket within half a mile south and there is easy access to the I4 and both coasts, all the shops and restaurants along the 192 and the new Posner Park shopping mall just south on the 27. It is close enough to the theme parks if you want to return during the day and if you want a game of golf there are numerous courses all within 5 to 30 minutes drive that will suit all levels of play.

We have tennis and basketball courts, a community pool with changing facilities and a children’s play area all free for our guests to use. All in all The Palms is a haven of peace yet still close to the action.

Other Activities: Disneyland and all the amazing attractions around Orlando.
