About David Morgan

Hello my name is David Morgan , born in Dundee Scotalnd with a Welsh surname : ) but spent most of my life in London . Recently retired I am now living my dream and that includes owning a gorgeous 5 bedroomed villa in Davenport Orlando. Having spent many a happy holiday in various locations in the USA I finally decided on buying a property in Florida with a buisines partner to help enjoy my retirement.I spent six weeks visiting every furniture store in Orlando and the surrounding area to furnish the property , trying to make it as unique ,differant from all the other villas and a great place for people to stay at during their vacations, and judging by the comments received from many of the guests , all my efforts were a success . I am extreemly proud of my lovely vila , I am genuine and honest and anyone making a booking with myself will not be dissapointed in their choice of '537 Simply The Best'

See the new 360 degree tour , view the property in full screen to see each room to its maximum effect

David Morgan purchased this villa in 2006

Why David Morgan chose Davenport

Close proximity to Disney ,local shopping etc , approx 70 miles to the West and East Florida coast beaches, the villa is set in a tranquil location over looking a conservation area .

Guestbook comments from the manager

We're not long back from the best holiday we have ever been on. This beautiful villa played a part in making the holiday great. David has been a wealth of knowledge from the moment I booked the villa and any questions, no matter how silly, were answered straight away. The villa was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and the area is lovely. Every room is incredibly spacious and immaculately kept. If you want a beautiful home for your vacation look no further. P.S. Ihop is a 2 minute drive away 😎😎

With the closest Disney attraction being a short 12 minute drive away and all the designer & factory outlet malls close, “Simply The Best” is the perfect base for your Orlando vacation.

Lovely home from home.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely villa is situated in a quiet residential area close to local shops etc and within a 30 min drive from the popular parks. The villa itself is a very high standard with everything you would require to have great holiday.

Excellent Villa, clean, spacious and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

First time using this Villa and we were absolutely impressed with it.

We had lots of queries when booking and the owner was always prompt and very helpful.

Nothing seemed too much trouble for him and the little extras that he provides make a difference.

It was exactly what we wanted. The villa has excellent facilities, and well equipped with everything you need, clean, spacious and peaceful.

Coming home to this villa every night after a long day at the theme parks really made a great difference to our holiday.

The villa is modern, stylish, very spacious, it is also furnished and decorated to a high standard.

On arrival You walk into the formal dining area and living room before walking through to the lounge and kitchen area. There is also an upstairs sitting area too with a big Tv and corner sofa, great for watching Tv or movies, so the kids tell me.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, (even had egg cups) a utility room with washer/dryer and iron/board.

The pool area is perfect with a great pool & hot tub. It looks out onto a beautiful conservation area. But both sides are screened with small bushes and plants, so that you have privacy.

The villa is located in a well maintained neighbourhood and is approximately 20 minutes away from the Disney parks & 40 minutes to Universal.

Although there was only four of us, I would say there would be more than enough room for larger parties.

I highly recommend this villa, We hope to be back to Florida soon and would definitely return to this Villa.

Fantastic Villa in Florida

  • 5 of 5

This is the first we have stayed in a Villa in Orlando, as we usually stay in hotels. The villa and everything about it was wonderful. David, the owner was fantastic the run up to our holiday. He was very quick at responding, extremely kind and helpful.

The villa and pool is huge with plenty of room for 10 guests. Local amenities such as Publix, Walmat and takeaways (if needed) are all extremely close by.

I would definitely recommend this villa and will be back again.

Thanks for all your help David.

Great place in Florida

  • 5 of 5

We have been to many villas in Florida and this is one is at the top of the tree. It was close to all amenities such as Publix, Walmart and of course all the visits to Disney theme parks! All amenities were first class and the accommodation itself was great from all points of view, available space, bedrooms etc. Before the rental commenced there were lots of questions posed to David and he was always very informative and within very short time spans. The pool was great and outside the house boundaries there was lots of space for children to run! The only thing that I could ever think of that needs to be added was a BBQ. great time had by all adults and children. Would I rent the house again, definite YES! Thanks David

Owner's Response: Hello and many thanks for taking the time to leave a comprehesive review. I really appreciate when guests take the time and effort to leave reviews , that way potential guests can see what actual guests think of the villa and their stay , there is no better recommendation: > ) It appears you all enjoyed your vacation : > ) and my villa ticked the boxes for you stay which makes me very happy As to the BBQ comment , noted , but as mentioned in my previous reply to a guest who commented on a BBQ BBQs are not allowed to be used in the confines of the villa / or the pool area . In the past too many guests used the pool area to BBQ causing fat from food to litter the pool area floor and it is extremely difficult to clean , plus the BBQ itself very few guest will clean the BBQ as required leaving my MC to have to clean the appliance. Guests can hire a BBQ they can use OUTSIDE the confines of the villa and pool area . As we say in Scotland / Haste Yee Back / Regards David

Annual Florida Holiday

  • 5 of 5

537 lived up fully to my expectations. It was 'Simply the Best'. I have rented villas in Florida ( and around many parts of the States and Europe) and this villa certainly qualifies in the top two or three. Let me explain why I rate 537 so very high.

First when renting from a distance you depend on the response rate of the owner. A thorough, quick response with all details up front is what is important to me. I do not want to worry about money transfers or find out additional hidden costs. This owner was the best I have ever encountered. He was professional and was able to get back to you answering any and all questions with honest, positive info.

Second. When looking for a spot to stay our vacation is somewhat different. The first week and a bit we do not have many staying with us but week two the house fills. Consequently we need many beds, bedrooms to accommodate. This year in addition to a 90 year old Mother in Law, we also had a ten month old. The house was excellent. Lots of living space and bedrooms and excellent beds for sleeping. The kitchen and adjoining family room was excellent too. Because of food allergies we tend to eat in most nights. The space was very appropriate to prepare and mingle and all 12 of us had so much fun getting together and catching up. The kitchen was very well stocked with good appliances and all the things needed to make a meal for such a large group.

Third. The pool was terrific. Initially I worried it may not be large enough to fit the group but there was loads of space. When our weather turned cool and rainy, the pool was still quite comfortable to use. The fact that it backed onto a private conservation area was just an added touch of privacy and class. The washroom off the pool deck came in very handy and saved tracking water over the slippery tile floor.

Fourth. Price. I was very pleased to work with the owner for what I feel was an excellent price for such a villa. Nothing is a bargain but it certainly was very fair.

Some additional info. The pool furniture was getting close to needing replacing. The table definitely needs to be changed and a slightly larger one to accommodate 6 people would be more appropriate for such a large home. I know that bbqs often cause concerns but these should have been included in the rental. A good quality bbq could be bolted for security reasons but these are now part of many rentals.

Finally, make certain you park on the drive or in the garage. The street is very narrow.

Owner's Response: Hello David Many thanks for leaving such a comprehensive positive review , it is really is appreciated.Your comments are noted and my reply to those comments are featured below . I like to pride myself on my communication with my guests , replying as soon as possible to their questions about the villa , attractions etc and I have total confidence in my MC to help any guests during their stay at my home helping make their Disney vacation one truly to remember. As to the comment by David H in his review of having 12 people staying in the villa!!! David H filled in the Booking Form advising 8 people max would be staying , by having 12 people to stay went against the Booking Conditions. I was not advised of this increase in guests or I would not have taken the booking as my villa is only licensed to accomadate 10 people. I did feel disappointed in that the guest despite he advising 8 people would be staying over the period he allowed an addition 4 guest to stay without my authority!!! Points raised by DH, Pool Table. After David H left we bought a new table for the pool area , but due to limited space an option of buying a table to accomadate 6 people had to be rejected. Parking, Parking can be an issue yes , but we have a garage which can accomadate 2 cars and a drive way where 2 cars can park ,I advise all my guest prior to arrival to use the garage and drive way to park. I had to advise the guest as one car was parked on the lawn which is against HOA rules and does not do the lawn much good !!!! Photos were provided to the guest to show this illegal parking BBQs, BBQs are not allowed to be used in the confines of the villa / or the pool area . In the past too many guests used the pool area to BBQ causing fat from food to litter the pool area floor and it is extremely difficult to clean , plus the BBQ itself very few guest will clean the BBQ as required leaving my MC to have to clean the appliance. Guests can hire a BBQ they can use outside the confines of the villa and pool area . The type of BBQ David H mentions, I have considered that option but they are not permitted by the Home Owners Association , sorry It is unfortunate that my responses are longer than the thank you to the guest,but I felt I had to answer the points raised so any potential guest can see I am pro active in any comment good or bad Regards David
