Well kept spacious villa overlooking the lake. Nice big pool and hot tub. The perfect villa. Less than half hour from the airport, 10 mins to the parks and shopping. Home from home can’t wait to come back.
We returned today from a weeks stay at this lovely home. The villa was a great layout and would suit also two families or several generations. There are two doubles both ensuit downstairs, my daughter and boyfriend stayed in the master and they had privacy from us. Three bedrooms upstairs one master with the balcony and two twins. The twins share a joining bathroom the master has an ensuing including a large bath. My husband and I were in the master our son in a twin. We slept with the balcony doors open and did not get bitten once. The view is lovely you can see alligators enjoying the sun first thing some mornings. DO NOT be put off by this, it is a privilege and they are small and don't go anwpywhere near you. We found the layout of the villa offered a lot of privacy which was relaxing. The beds were extremely comfortable. All bedrooms had a TV but nobody used these because the living areas are truly well arranged.
The kitchen is very well equipped, I cooked 6 out of the 7 nights and lunch some days, The nearest publix is 6 minutes. We did move the smaller table out of the kitchen (into the garage) to allow more space in the cooking area and ate at the main dinning table. Both lounge areas were used, the rear one has pool/lake views and a large tv, Xbox (we had to get batteries for the controllers) the front room has a residential view and is quieter - no TV - we liked the quieter room option. There were a few to many plant/flower arrangements for us so they went in the garage with the table **we did put everything back before we left**. This is our ninth trip to Davenport area and was mainly for a rest and sun so we were at the villa 70% of the time and probably used more space then on our other trips.
The pool heating was not working when we arrived but the property management company came to the house within the hour and everything was sorted for the next day. In February the pool was too cold but the heating was brilliant when it was fixed, probably the best we have ever had extremely efficient. The aircon- again very efficient and can be changed. The main unit is in the master upstairs which we thought might keep us awake but it didn't bother us.
If you wish to visit Disney the drive is about 14 minutes, we dropped our children at blizzard water park and we're back at the villa in 30 mins. We went to beaches on the east and west coasts, beautiful as always. Fred Howard memorial beach is well worth the trip.
