About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Villa with Private Pool & Spa close to all attractions

Our wonderful air conditioned villa is located on the secure gated community of SOLANA in the bustling area of Davenport situated on the US Highway 27, just 15 minutes from the Disney parks and 30 minutes from Universal Studios. Just a short drive from many top notch golf courses such as Highlands Reserve (5mins) and Mystic Dunes (15mins) the area is perfect for anybody wielding a club. Also within a few minutes are a Publix Supermarket (Berry Town Centre 1 Mile) and a large WALMART (Cagan Crossings 4 miles), plus a local Applebee's restaurant too. The property has 4 Bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and will comfortably sleep 8 people. We have two master beds with their own en suite bathroom and two twins with single beds which share the family bathroom in between. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes with ample hanging space for clothes. The master suites have brand new TVs with cable in addition.

We now have two foldaway beds with memory foam mattresses for extra children or small adults. This means the property will now sleep 10. Also we have upgraded the living room with new sofas and the 2nd Master Bedroom has received a new bed and furniture also. In December we acquired a brand new Self Cleaning oven and we continue to upgrade regularly when we have no bookings.

The kitchen is stocked with all mod cons such as Electric Kettle, Blender, Ice Cream Maker and all the utensils, dinnerware under the sun. There is also a small dining table in the kitchen area. There are two living areas inside the property. The family room is ideal for relaxing after a long day at the parks and it features three leather sofas and a large dining table for those evening meals. The TV room has two sofas and houses a brand new Smart TV, blu Ray player, Nintendo Wii U for all your entertainment needs. To compliment this area we have a subscription to Netflix for all your favourite movies. The garage has been transformed into a games room featuring a large pool table and Fussball game. Also included in the villa is Free Wifi and Domestic and International to Europe calls. Outside there is a large private pool with luxury spa which is protected by a child security net. We have also supplied arm bands and pool floats for younger children.

Also any visitors to the property are allowed to use the facilities of the resort located at the Solana Clubhouse. These being a large communal pool, fitness center, tiki bar, volleyball court, mini golf area and children's playground.

With the resort being secure it means there is little through traffic which is ideal for families with small children. Overall this is the perfect place for your Florida Vacation and beyond! NOW SUPPLIED WITH LARGE INFORMATION BOOK IDEAL FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS TO THE AREA

Pool Heat is Extra charged at $25 a night and is on a timer system from 9am til 5pm. This cannot be altered.

Prices are non negotiable because of the weakness of the pound.


From the airport follow the signs for the 417 South towards Tampa/Disney. This is a toll road and assuming you have a rental car go through the Sun Pass/ Express Lanes and the fees will be automatically charged to your credit card after your rental period. Follow this for about 18 miles until you see signs for I4 West and Tampa. Merge onto the Interstate and continue for 3 miles until Exit 58 for Kissimmee and Poinciana. Take Exit 58 and stay in the right lane and turn into Championsgate. Continue for a mile and stay in the right lane and turn onto Ronald Reagan Parkway. Follow this for about 2 miles until you see the highway 27 in front of you. Turn right onto this Northbound and continue for another 2 miles. Then you will see the coral red outside of the Solana Resort. Proceed right onto Barry road and then another right towards the security gates, where you check in with the guard and you will receive a pass for your stay. It's more easier to get to than it sounds!

About Adam B

Hello my name is Adam and I live in the UK. My family rents out property in England, so we thought it would be good to test the market over in the good old USA. If all goes well then we plan to dive deeper with a few more properties.

Adam B purchased this villa in 2015

Why Adam B chose Davenport

The property is only 10 years old and one of the newest resort areas within Central Florida. Quite simply it's so near Disney, within a 15 minute drive. The resort is a secure gated community which helps for families with small children, with very little through traffic. We have only just purchased the property so we are putting a new taste on it. I have thought about everything in the villa and even if not venturing to one of the parks, then there is still something to do for all of the family. If it be relaxing by the pool, reading a book in the family room, watching a movie on the Netflix subscription or playing games on the Nintendo Wii U provided.

average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

Excellent property! Truly enjoyed our stay. Home owner Adam was attentive to any questions.

  • 5 of 5

Home will comfortably house eight people, we had only four. Pool and home were clean, quiet, and very family friendly. Our kids loved the home so much they've asked us to book here again next trip, the character rooms were a hit. The home is even nicer than its pictures and it had everything we could've needed and that a home should have etc. beach towels, hair dryers, washer and dryer that worked well. The mattresses were great and sleep was very easy after long days at the theme parks. The drive is about 20 mins. to Disney and offers easy access to route I-4. We highly recommend this property as you could spend the same amount of time waiting for Disney transportation if staying on property without all the benefits of a home. This gated community made us feel safe and right at home. Thank you Adam for sharing your home!! We look forward to our next stay!!

Wonderful property

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful spacious property with everything you need for a great holiday. Pool had sun from late morning and was enjoyed by the whole family, especially the Spa. Villa is very spacious and would be ideal for 2 families. Loved the themed kids rooms and the games room. Close to a good selection of restaurants and supermarkets. Felt very safe on the gated community which was clean and well maintained. Great communication with the villa owner Adam. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Orlando is all about enjoying yourself and there is so much to do. I have listed as many attractions as possible:

Disney Parks:

Animal Kingdom (Expedition Everest Rollercoaster is mega and you chase a yeti and go backwards)

Hollywood Studios (Rock & Rollercoaster featuring Aerosmith where you ride through the streets in a limousine to music by the band) (Tower of Terror where you drop in a haunted elevator and its pretty scary)

Magic Kingdom (View the fireworks which are every evening and they are spectacular) Rides include Splash Mountain, where you get absolutely drenched riding through Brear Rabbit Land.

Epcot - This is very much improved with new rides. Test your own car that you design by Chevrolet on Testtrack and this is great fun. Also glide over well known destinations on SOARIN which is the parks longest cueing line.

Typhoon Lagoon & Blizzard Beach (These are Disneys Two Waterparks. Featuring loads of waterslides and big pools, something for all the family to enjoy.)

Universal Studios Parks

Universal Studios:

Plenty of amazing rides at this park. Dare you go on the Hollywood Rip Rocket which is a rather large rollercoaster. Many more family orientated rides too, like The Simpsons, E.T. and Transformers.

Universal Studios Islands Of Adventures:

Since the addition of Harry Potter World, this has become the most popular attraction. There are rollercoaster's a many, splash rides which really do leave you drenched and obviously all the Wizardly World entertainment too.

Sea World:

Where killer whales and dolphins meet large scary rollercoasters and wet rides.


This is the Sea World Waterpark. They have one of the scariest slides where you just drop but you don't know when! It's called Ihu's Breakaway Falls. There are smaller slides for the youngsters.

Busch Gardens:

Located in the Tampa area. Free transportation is provided with the ticket (usually). This park has many large rollercoasters, plus some river Rapids and also a large variety of wildlife to see.

Also located within the Central Florida area:


Discovery Cove (swim with Dolphins)


Wet n Wild (Waterpark)

Dinosaur World

Kennedy Space Center (near Cocoa Beach area)

Silver Springs (animal theme park)

Wonder Works (invention themed park)


Located on International Drive and now open, this is Floridas answer to the London Eye. Views reach out to the Atlantic coast and it costs $18 for a single ride.


Brand new to Orlando. Is right next door to the EYE and combination tickets can be bought for $35 and you get entry to the Sea Life Aquarium also.


See the journey of how chocolate turns from the bean into the creamy bar we love today. Tours last 45 mins.


This is a 10,000 sq ft Odditorium which looks like it's falling into the ground. It's just weird things in this place.


Indoor skydiving experience without having to jump out of a plane. Anybody can do it. People as old as 103 have had a go!


Traditional Mini Golf in the dark with loud music and indoors.


If you like your outdoor games why not cheer on the local teams even if your on Vacation. Orlando has a brand new Soccer team and they play at the Citrus Bowl. Also Orlando Magic compete in the NBA basketball league. For NFL fans we have Tampa Bay Buccs (1 hour), Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jags being further afield.


Welcome to a world of golf. Central Florida is full of it and there are so many courses to play. If planning to play on Vacation then book through Golfnow.com for the best deals. Have listed a few courses to get you started:


This is literally over the road from the Solana Resort and our villa. Very much a Scottish style golf course sitting atop of one of the highest area of Florida.


Designed by Arnold Palmer this is a mix of Scottish And Carolina style golf. I stayed at this resort on vacation once. Located on the East Village of the resort


If you want to splash out on a round of golf then this would be a decent choice. Located in the grounds of Disney on Bonnet Creek Drive. Absolutely spotless course and needs to be for the price.


Just a short 5 minute journey from our villa featuring 3 golf courses. Designed by Greg Norman.


Recognised as one of the finest public golf courses in Orlando. Located just off the 192 Highway.


Boggy Creek Airboat Rides - soar atop a swamp reaching speeds of 45 miles per hour

Orlando Balloon Rides - spectacular views from several thousand feet. Costs about $200 for adults but probably worth it for the experience


Both of the major parks operate areas within their location for Nightime. DISNEY SPRINGS and UNIVERSAL CITY WALK. They all offer restaurants, bowling, cinemas and nightclubs.

Unfortunately I have run out of space. I could have listed more. Enjoy
