About Doug Martin

My wife and I live in Wisconsin. We purchased our Florida house as a potential retirement home to eliminate the cold Wisconsin winters. Since we are not yet retired we have decided to make our home available for rental at this time. We take great pride in the home and the contents and know that you will find it your home away from home.

Why Doug Martin chose Davenport

This property is located in Davenport, FL and is about 8 miles from Disney. This location is ideal for families that wish to visit the Florida theme parks but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of the parks if that is your choice. It is also only about an hour from Tampa and the Gulf Coast Beaches and about an hours drive to the Atlantic Ocean as well. it is also close to major shopping, fine restaurants and Lake Davenport.

What makes this house unique

We have a covered patio in the pool area that lets you enjoy the outdoors even when there is liquid sunshine (rain). The pool has a heater to make the water temperature perfect even for cool winter evenings.

Great Experience and Quick Responses to Questions.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this property. It was clean and the kitchen was stocked well. The beds were comfy and we even used the pack n' play and high chair for our 8 month old baby.

The only reason I wouldn't give this stay a 5-star rating, is that the property could use a little maintenance. The ceiling fans in two rooms had fan pulls that were not working. One pull was laying in the light globe as it had been detached and the other was very tough to pull and did not change the ceiling fan speed. This combined with the 75 degree thermostat lead to an adjustment period when we arrived. They might have recognized this fault, because there were two pedestal fans in the closets, which we used every night.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Four of us went for a 4 day golf outing and each had our own bedrooms. The house is well equipped, clean and kept in good condition. The owners are very accommodating and will work to meet your needs. The house is in a quiet subdivision but close to all of the Disney attractions, a number of golf courses, shopping and great restaurants if you do not want to cook at the house. The pool was clean and very relaxing. If you’re looking for something close to all of the Orlando attractions and golf courses but in a quite area so you can relax at the end of the day then I would highly recommend this property.

Great stay - Great location

  • 5 of 5

House was comfortably accommodating! The kids enjoyed the pool and pool table during the minimal time we were at the house. We stayed at the parks all day/night, so to have a comfortable safe place to lay our heads was perfect. Great communication with Doug and timely return of our deposit (thanks Doug)! All in all, we would stay again - great house and great location with Walmart and Starbucks down the road.

Great location with Exceptional Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I vacation in the area often, and picked this house because it's in our favorite location...minutes away from all the action, but still tucked away to enjoy the quiet. We usually hit 192 daily & loved being able to take the "back route!" Doug & Kathy, along with the property manager, David, were extremely easy to communicate with! My husband wound up with some medical issues, and they went above & beyond to accommodate our needs...we're still so thankful for their kindness! This house had everything we needed & more! The fully stocked kitchen was the best we'd ever seen even having crock pots. Because of my husbands medical condition, our vacation plans changed & we utilized the house more than normal. The master bedroom bed was the most comfortable we've had in a vacation rental. The pool was walk right in warm! We put the pool table in the games room (garage) to great use! Even though there wound up being only two of us on this trip, the house would be a great fit for a large group! We'd defiantly stay there again!

Best Week Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we booked this property for one week! We had everything we needed for a family of 5 plus grandparents! The pool was a great way to relax at the end of the day. The games and pool table/table tennis were perfect for our children too! The fully stocked kitchen saved lots of money making some of our meals. The location of the home was safe and in a quiet neighborhood. We were close to everything we needed and just a short drive to Disney. We ventured a little further to Clearwater Beach and Kennedy Space Center too! If you are going to Florida, skip the hotel/resort and book this!

Home is located close to Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Old Towne, many fine restaurants, challenging golf courses, and great shopping. The house is about an hour's drive to Tampa and Busch Gardens and the Gulf Coast beaches. It is in a quiet subdivision but close to everything. The best of both worlds.
