About Ken or Stella

Having purchased this rental property is a dream come true for our family....

Our love for Disney started many years ago when we (Ken and Stella) met as Disney Cast members. Our hope is that in a few years we will be able to retire, in the beautiful State of Florida!

Ken or Stella purchased this house in 2012

Why Ken or Stella chose Davenport

What attracted us to this particular villa:

- the proximity to the Disney Parks/Universal Studios and

- the safe community

Guestbook comments from the owner

My brother's family and my family had a great time. The location of your home is great, close to everything. It was great to fix breakfast at the house, then head out to the parks and come back mid afternoon and be able to swim, fix dinner and head back to the parks if we wanted to. We all had plenty of room, the house was equipped with enough towels, and dishes, cookware, etc. We truly loved having the washer and dryer there, it was nice to bring back clean clothes.

Magical Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I wanted to take the time to thank Ken and Stella for being the most hospitable hosts in our 7 years of visiting Florida and renting vacation homes! You are both incredible and warm and made the booking process super easy. Mike the property manager, was also a gem and the moment we contacted him he was there within minutes for a small closet door issue. He took a measurement and a new door arrived the next day to be fixed upon our departure. Ken and Stella really do take pride in their home as did we while we stayed there.

I have to mention how comfortable the Master bedroom was near the kids rooms. OH MY GOODNESS, we contemplated strapping it to our SUV to take home to Canada with us LOL. It was the best rest I have had in years in those lovely 10 days we stayed.

The pool was amazing and stayed clean even with all of the crazy storms over a few days, so refreshing!

The home was well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen. There were even books and board games, it just had it all. We enjoyed the Disney parks and shopping close by, I love that the community is nestled in its own little area, it was peaceful and very quiet.

We hope to make our 8th Florida visit back here in your home next year!

Thank you again for allowing us the privilege to stay in your perfect home.

P.S. Please feel free to ship that Master bed to us for such a great review (hahaha)

Take care, see you very soon!

Owner's Response: OMG, what a kind review you provided us Christina!! It is heartwarming to encounter people who appreciate our home and our services. We are so delighted that you had such a great experience. It is even more special to us given the fact you have rented many homes in the past, in the same area. We wish we could ship one of our master bedroom mattresses to you as we know how super comfortable they are, however we want to make sure future guests enjoy them as much as you did... and it will be there waiting for you, at your next visit! :) Thanks again for taking the time to write such a detailed and generous review. From the bottom of our hearts, we are very thankful. Warmest cheers, until next time... Stella and Ken

CONVENIENT TO THEME PARKS

  • 3 of 5

This home is conveniently located to Orlando area theme parks. My husband and I shared this home with my daughter, her husband and two ten year olds. It was very convenient having a pool for them to swim in when they weren't going to a park or traveling for the day. We found the house a little worse for wear than anticipated. We probably should have notified the owner's management company about fire alarms that were just hanging from the ceiling in two locations. Also, one of the bed frames in the "guest" bedroom is not attached to the frame and falls forward. Coffee pot carafe must have been replaced and doesn't fit the coffee maker properly so that turned out to be unusable. Need to hold carafe against coffee maker or it will just fill up with water in the top and overflow. Wasn't until checking out that I found trash from a previous renter (soda bottles, candy wrappers, one sock) under a bed. "Game room" is really a garage, with trash cans and stuff in storage. Again, not usable space.

We did have plenty of room in the house, and the beds in the two masters were very comfortable. It was a good house for a handicapped person with lots of room in bedroom and bathroom.

Owner's Response: Hello Marie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always encourage our guests to report, early into their stay, any deficiencies or issues that may not look quite right . It is unfortunate that you never connected with us nor our Property Manager Mike while you were in our home. Mike would have corrected all of these matters on the spot. Now that we are aware of these issues, they will be taking care of within the next 24 hours. We pride ourselves in providing a safe, and clean home. In order to accomplish that, we rely on the assistance of our guests to ensure they report any deficiencies as soon as possible (as they would if you were to stay in a hotel/resort) so we can ensure the utmost comfortable stay in our property. Stella and Ken

Excellent very comfy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this lovely home. We are a family of six and there was enough room for us all to spred out. The house was clean and decorated beautifully also fully stocked with everything we needed. The kids enjoyed having personal and private use of the pool and the game room in the garage. We will definitely be back for another family vacation.

Great spot, great communication with owner.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to exactly what the site and pictures told. Clean and very accurate in description. Within reasonable distance to attractions and easy to get to. Owner was very helpful with any extra information needed and even recommended a gorgeous beach to visit. I would probably use their residence for a future visit to the areas because it accommodated me and my family well.

Perfect vacation home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet block ,house was very clean from top to bottom .had everything you needed fresh towels, cook wear even board games . My kids loved the pool, very close to the parks so we were able to use our park hopper come back take dip in the pool and head back to another park. The beds were the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The only small issue was the wifi being extremely slow and hard to get a connection even with our phones and tablets. Other than that it was perfect and would highly recommend this lovely home and hope to stay there again in the near future. Thank you Ken & Stella our stay was fantastic
