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'

Review Copied from a Review Posted on my FaceBook Page by A Guest



Robert Hallyburton – 5 star



Having just returned from Florida yesterday I thought I would leave a wee review of our stay at 537.

We stayed at for 12 nights (6 Adults 4 kids and a toddler aged 2) there was plenty of room for all of us and the pool was the main destination for the kids each night we returned from the parks. Our son, Daniel loved the amount of space there was to run around in and his favourite spot was on the single chair in the living room watching sesame street

We were initially worried about keeping an eye on Daniel (2) getting into the pool by himself but we needn’t have worried as the pool door is alarmed when it opens and there is a protective fence around the pool and we made sure all the kids were closing the door every time they went in an out of it.

The villa is ideally located for all the Disney parks and to be honest was well located for all the major parks with only the Space Centre taking just over a hour to get to.

We had a couple of mishaps with lost passports and a kid locked in the car so to return to such a lovely villa and pool after such a stressful time was welcome relief.



David and the MC used for the villa were easily contactable and quick to response to any questions we had. I preferred to contact via email using the Wi-Fi available and David always got back to me promptly. David also managed to get very reasonable rates for car hire through Alamo.



When we arrived there were welcome packs for all the kids, which was a nice touch that the kids really appreciated.



So in summary, if you’re looking for a great, well equipped, spacious and comfortable villa, ideally located for all the major parks and representing great value for money, 537 should be your choice.

The large upstairs den is the ideal place to lay back and watch those movies you were intending to watch but couldn’t find the time. 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.

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

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

1st class stay @ simply the best villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at this 1st class villa for our first ever stay in Florida and it could only be described as a dream holiday ....

From the start David offers an impecable service and really gets the whole family excited about the Florida visit with lots of personel touches from the time you book right through to your stay at the Villa with a few extra surprises to get your stay off to a great start. David has always been happy to answer all of my many questions, extremely friendly & very responsive.

The wow factor starts the minute you drive into the Retreat entrance with lush landscaping and sparkling fountains instantly providing a tropical Florida welcome.

Stunning spacious villa brimming with luxury, beautifully furnished and decorated Villa, modern & stylish, offering every home-from-home comfort imaginable with spacious layouts and plenty of room for everyone. Impeccable villa provides a roomy en-suite master bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, utility room with washer/dryer, living/dining area, second living area, screened swimming pool looking onto a beautiful consevation area with loungers and much more.

My daughter turned 1yr old during our stay and would like to add how well the villa was catered for children to, travel cot, pushchair, stairgate, highchair, board games etc this Villa caters very well for children.

Decorated and furnished to the highest specification with TV’s, DVDS, Wi-Fi,  whirlpool spa, every convenience really is taken care of.

An ideal location just 20mins from Disney and 40mins to Universal.

I would like to give a mention to Elaine & Kevin whom deal with the management of the Villa. We did need to call and speak during our stay due to a very small problem with a timer switch breaking on the hose filling the pool, Elaine was very polite and helpful over the phone and Kevin was at the villa within the hour and problem immediately resolved (Top marks and just like David, incredibly friendly and couldn't offer anymore help)

We would like to hope we will be back in the future and would definitely return to this Villa and will highly recommend to family & friends.

Keep doing a great Job David ... you have a beautiful house.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Dave took a lot of care to make sure that we had a good stay, best owner we've worked with. Our kids enjoyed the pool almost every night when we got back from the parks. Spacious house, plenty of space for everyone to spread out when we got home. If we ever make it back to Florida this house would be our first choice.
