Overview

About the property

Self-catered villa in peaceful location close to golf courses and Disney Parks

Welcome to our Florida holiday home web page, which we hope you find helpful. The villa has 4 bed/2 baths and a lovely screened pool and patio area close to Disney, sleeps max 8 + child cots if required. The Palms Lake Davenport Estates offers a free communal pool, basketball, tennis courts & a kiddies playground with numerous nearby golf courses & Lake Davenport is a 5 min drive away for fishing. 4 beds; master with queen bed & en-suite (tub/walk-in shower & closet/twin sinks); 2 further queen doubles & a twin. 2nd family bathroom - shower/ tub. Formal dining/living room leading to more casual open-plan family room/kitchen/breakfast room with full amenities. Cable TV & DVD in master bedroom & living room,TV in 2nd double and flat screen cable TV in family room. Fully air conditioned, fast free Internet connection & Sat Nav provided. Safety alarmed gorgeous private screen pooled area providing 8 sun beds & alfresco dining. Small welcome pack, bedding, all towels, including beach towels, supplied.

The pool privacy screen will allow in the beautiful sun light, but provide privacy for you and your family whilst on holiday.

Safety and Extras: The French windows that open out onto the extended pool area are alarmed for your safety and peace of mind.

All local phone calls and internet access is free of charge.

A satnav, with all major attractions saved in it, is available for your use free of charge if desired.

A small charcoal BBQ is provided free of charge or a gas BBQ can be hired for the week through our manager.

Cribs and highchairs can be hired for a small cost through our manager who ensures that they are immaculate and fully working, adhering to all safety standards.

Distances to Disney: We have seen other villa owners in our vicinity advertise their property as only 10 minutes from Disney. This is slightly stretching the truth. The Palms is a lovely quiet area 20 minutes by car to Disney Main Gate. We have done the journey in 15 minutes, but we hit an exceptionally quiet period on the roads and so 20 minutes is more the average. We love the drive, as it goes past many great looking restaurants and shopping areas. For example, the drive to Sea World takes you right past a brilliant Outlet Centre that houses numerous high street named shops with goods so reduced as to really make it worthwhile a stop in.

Our own Berry Town Centre is the small shopping and restaurant area near the Palms and is literally less than 3 minutes drive away with the larger Wal-Mart store only 10 minutes away.

Military Discount: For those guests who are either in the American, UK or other allied Armed Forces, you will find that many shops offer military discount if requested.

About Catherine or Mark

Catherine was born in Germany, as her farther was in the British Armed Forces, but from the age of 7 she was raised in Yorkshire. She joined the Royal Air Force in 1985 and enjoys a career as a Logistics Officer. Her husband, Mark, has just left the British Army and between them they have 3 teenage children who all love visiting their villa in Florida.

Catherine or Mark purchased this villa in 2010

Why Catherine or Mark chose Davenport

Cathy and Mark chose New Moon Villa as they particularly loved the fact that the pool was not directly overlooked, as so many of the villa pools are, and they really liked the open plan living area. The villa is a well loved second home to Mark and Cathy's family. Mark says that Cathy keeps spending out on too many extras for the villa, making it more homely and beautiful than a usual rental property. He is likely right, but Cathy wants her guests to feel as if they are in a really loved home. It is smart and modern, but cosy with a friendly feeling. It is immaculatley kept by their managers, Robert and Emma. Mark and Cathy are righlty proud of New Moon Villa which is loved and cared for, pretty and immaculate and for what it costs to rent, it is an absolute bargain. Their reviews are genuine and they have been blessed with guests who have treated their home with care and respect. They are now into their 5th year of business and have guests returning for the 4th time, which speaks volumes.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located on a well cared for private estate which homes many locals as well as other rental properties. Christmas time is especially beautiful as the Amercians go to so much trouble decorating the outside of their homes and some are truly stunning. The villa is close enough to Disney to make it really practical to visit daily (15 to 20 mins), but far enough away to give guests the peace, rest and recuperation required on a holiday. It is also very close to brilliant shops, and lovely restaurants.

The villa is only one hour from many beaches and other places of interest, so for those who do not want to go to parks every day, there are other great choices within a good driving distance.

The two lounges are a real boon in the villa, especially for larger parties. It allows that little extra 'me' space if you don't want to be in the main area or to watch a TV programme that no one else is interested in. It means that even with 8 people in the home, you never feel crowded in or claustraphobic.

Cathy and Mark have kept their prices relatively low to reflect the current financial climate and to make the villa affordable for normal families who have to pay really expenisve flight costs or park tickets. Visiting Disney Land is not a cheap holiday option, but the villa allows for luxury without breaking the bank giving guests the chance to experience the true fun of Florida .

Guestbook comments from the owner

The review below was sent directly to the owner after he was unable to get it directly on line through the web site due to a technical fault:



Hi Cathy,

The villa was just as lovely and welcoming as you see it on the website. We arrived on Monday 29th July and stayed for 14 nights and nobody wanted to go home as the villa had everything you would need to make your stay a memorable one. I booked the villa direct with Cathy the owner and she made sure it was all hassle free and would not hesitate to book her lovely villa again and would certainly recommend her to family or friends.We have been to Florida 5 times now and this was by

far the best villa we have stayed in. The villa is well situated for all the theme parks and if you are looking for a quality steak house the Longhorn Steakhouse or Logan's come highly recommended.When you have had a long journey and want to relax the bottle of wine or tea and coffee Cathy provides for her guests is very welcome. Her manager Rob and his family are on the end of a phone should you need them and they are very pleasant and professional. We spent a lot of time in the pool

as it gets the sun most of the day and the other nice thing is it has got a separate area with sun loungers which are of top quality and comfortable.So anyone who is looking for a villa and a hassle free holiday then look no further speak to Cathy and your holiday is sorted.Thank you again Cathy for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Regards

Barry,Christine & Family

Clean, cozy and well equipped. We felt like we were staying at a friends home, not a rental!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with all girls, I was pleased that the rental was in a nice, safe neighborhood,. My niece was in a cheer competition at ESPN center, then we visited Disney world for 4 days. The house was convenient to everywhere we went. Walmart was just down the street, so we could pick up our grocery and household items in one place. The home was just like the pictures, and very well cared for. Prior guests had left a few things for others to enjoy, as we did too. It was clean, well furnished and roomy, the beds were comfy, too. The kitchen had almost as much as my home kitchen. We loved how spacious the home was and we could enjoy time to ourselves or gather together to. The girls really enjoyed swimming in the pool and sunbathing, while my sister and I enjoyed a few adult beverages by the pool. Cathy, the homeowner, was great and always promptly responded to my emails. To sum up our stay, we enjoyed it very much. It truly felt like a home away from home. All the little things Cathy and Mark do to make their guests feel at home and welcomed, made all the difference for us. We were very happy with our stay and time in Orlando and hope to return soon!!!

Owner's Response: Pam, Thank you for such a lovely review - it was so thoughtful of you to write one. I'm so glad you had a lovely time and that you liked the villa too. I plan to sell the villa at the end of the year so sadly probably won't do business with you again. It was my pleasure though and I wish you and your family well for the future. Kindest regards Cathy xx

Very nice home, well kept pool, close to a large park with a nice dog park.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to restaurants & stores of all types. We went to Florida's East Coast & West Coast. They were about equal distance from the house. Home was spacious the kids could watch TV in the front room, while the adults watched TV in the back living room. Also, there were 2 bed rooms with TVs. Rob the manager was helpful when called upon, quick to reply. The only problem we had was with cable/Internet the box plug, it is located on a wall in the Twin bedroom on the side of the bed. It came unplugged a few times. This was a very simple fix. Once we contacted Rob.

We look forward to returning.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of using homesaway and it couldnt have been any better. Good communication from Cathy from the start and a really detailed welcome pack. The villa itself was fantastic, it was huge, very clean and had all the things we could of need. The pool was a massive bonus and a great way to relax after a day in the parks.

The location was great, 20 mins drive from Disney and about 35-40 mins from universal. 2 large supermarkets less 5 minutes drive and numerous places to eat within 10 mins drive.

Rob was a great help and gave us plenty of advice and guidance, especially with the impending hurricane. Thankfully we had no issues while staying here, so didn't need to call rob but he made us feel that we could speak to him if there were any problems.

We had a brilliant time and would love to be able to go back again in the future.

A very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay

  • 4 of 5

A well kept, clean and homely villa. The pool was not overlooked and the sun poured in from morning to early evening.

Not too far from conveniences and about 25 minute drive to main parks. Location is fine - a non-gated residential area with no passing traffic.

The Palms is set on an established community just 1.5 miles south of the junction of the 192 and 27. It is a mixture of holiday and residential homes, so at festive times, such as Christmas, it has a feel of the 'real America” as residents decorate their homes. There is a supermarket within half a mile south and there is easy access to the I4 and both coasts, all the shops and restaurants along the 192 and the new Posner Park shopping mall just south on the 27. It is close enough to the theme parks if you want to return during the day and if you want a game of golf there are numerous courses all within 5 to 30 minutes drive that will suit all levels of play.

We have tennis and basketball courts, a community pool with changing facilities and a children’s play area all free for our guests to use. All in all The Palms is a haven of peace yet still close to the action.

Other Activities: Disneyland and all the amazing attractions around Orlando.
