About Nicole and Steve Griggs

Im a Mum of four. Its been our dream to buy a property in Florida since I was carrying my first child in 1989. After two bad attempts, we finally got lucky and we used my inheritance having lost both my parents at a young age as a deposit.

I hope to be able to pass this home down generation to generation.

Nicole and Steve Griggs purchased this villa in 2009

Why Nicole and Steve Griggs chose Davenport

Ideally situated, south facing pool with many palm trees which are my favourite. Calabay Parc is one of the nicest best kept and safest communities in Davenport

What makes this villa unique

I fell in love with this property as soon as I saw it. The palm tree out the front was a happy site and we especially love the shape of the pool. Enjoyed putting our mark on the villa.

I have great respect to my potential guests and upon receipt of a booking, I will arrange a convenient time to telephone them to answer and questions and make them feel at ease that they are not just communicating with a robot. We are human I like to put my guests at ease as at the end of the day they are parting with their income. A holiday is meant to be a time to relax and enjoy after all their hardwork throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Owners Direct Review

Beautiful home!

We had a wonderful stay in this home. We have been renting homes in Florida for 4 years now and this was one of our favorites. It's clean and well maintained. The neighborhood is lovely. You can tell that the owner (Nicole) takes pride in this home as it furnished with homey touches/decor, new appliances, fabulous patio furniture, great game room, books and more. I would definitely recommend this home to friends and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa for two wonderful weeks. Nicole has made this vacation rental a real home with lovely decorations, nice furniture and high quality of linnen, kitchen appliances etc. and everything was very, very clean. Our two teens (and we did also) loved the gameroom which is exceptionally good equiped with even a pinn bal machine I personally loved. The pool and pool deck were very spacious with sun all day. The large table outside is great and we eat all of our meals at the pool deck if we didn't go out to eat. The villa is close to Disney and a 30 minute drive from Universal parks. Calabay Parc is a very clean and safe community and we liked being on that location. Nicole is great to work with and I enjoyed speaking and e-mailing her. She is a very nice person with great love for of her home, which you can feel in every contact and in the whole house. Thanks for having us Nicole!

Beautiful Calabay Parc Villa

  • 5 of 5

Nicole was really helpful when booking the villa and answered all our questions. We had a wonderful holiday here. The villa is beautiful, spacious and in a quiet area away from the main road. It was clean and very well maintained and we had no reason to contact management services during our stay. It is a real home from home with deep pile carpets, rugs, pictures and ornaments. The kitchen was spotless and is well equipped with everything you require. Although we didn't do any cooking as there are so many fabulous restaurants within easy driving distance. Our favourites were CrackerBarrel, Appleby's, Longhorn Steakhouse and Bob Evans. The villa is about 15 mins drive from Disney and it was wonderful to return to such as lovely home after a busy day at the parks. We stayed at the parks til 2 or 3pm then returned to chill out back at the villa swimming watching tv or using the fantastic games room in the garage. We went to all the Disney parks, Universal and Typhoon Lagoon water park. We also drove to Daytona Beach and drove along the beach. it is about 1hour 40 mins away. Our holiday was over too quick. Thanks Nicole for all your help and letting us stay in your wonderful villa. We will return!

Owner's Response: Thank You Michelle for a lovely review. You are a truly wonderful guest who has gone beyond all that is expected, making a special effort to contact Home Away because your review was not posted. Most guests despite having a wonderful holiday/vacation do not bother with writing a review but reviews are so important. You appeared to be having an amazing holiday. The weather was exceptional too. Next time you must check out Mannys' Steakhouse on Highway 27 and a new one opened before Christmas on Highway 192. We are hoping to purchase a folding table tennis depending on room and a docking station for ipods/i phones etc later this month. Keep following me on facebook for regular updates on the villa and Orlando. I look forward to welcoming back where you will receive a discount as a 'returning guest'. Many thanks Nicole

Wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this property was wonderful. The descriptions of the villa were accurate, and the layout was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 3 children. The kitchen was well stocked, the living room very comfortable especially after busy days at the parks. The kids loved the pool and the game room. Nicole was so easy to work with, and I appreciated the phone call prior to our booking. We hope to return next year!!!
