Why Jean or Michael McAdam chose Davenport

Villa Lakeview is our holiday home and given the time that we spend in the USA, we have furnished it to a very high specification and have our home managed by an excellent management company, such that it reflects our fabulous home in the UK.. It is maintained to a standard reflecting the qualities that we have in our home here in the UK. The reason for this is that we do not want any person who rents our home to be disappointed with the accommodation and décor as this can ruin a holiday, which is precious in terms of time and cost.

What makes this villa unique

The location is unbeatable. With a pool and spa which faces South over a lake and woods in conservation area and as such not overlooked. A friendly small community of beautifully maintained homes with excellent security, from regular police patrols, paid for by the home owners.

Our home is furnished to a very high standard as we spend vacation time here each year.

Our home, is near to good local shopping, Publix supermarkets, restaurants, other retailers and so close to Disney (less than 20 minutes), yet away from the noise of traffic on the Interstate and local roads

Excellent stay. Loved the pool and privacy.

Beautiful well equipped villa. Poor cell service was our only complaint but we dealt with it. May suggest that a gas grill would have been a welcome amenity. Truly enjoyed our stay. The pool was awesome.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Lakeview. We went with the sole intention of visiting all the Disney parks and Universal studios. We did this and much more as it was so well located amongst lots of venues to go to. The shops at the Lake Buena vista outlets for instance were amazing! We had to buy another suitcase for our bargain hunting. That was mainly down to the kids wanting lots of new footwear at the Nike outlet.

When we arrived we had no issues following the very detailed instructions. We used a sat nav for getting us there as its much easier than navigating and driving on the wrong side of the road :)

We loved the pool and the kids couldn't stop jumping in it after a long day around the parks.

We even ventured out to the Tampa Bay Rays baseball which was a great way to end our holiday as they won with lots of Home runs being hit by the Rays.

The boys made full use of the table tennis and table football too. They avoided playing pool as Dad always wins :)

Would go again - Thanks Jean and Micheal

Fantastic villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Jean and Michael's villa for 3 weeks, we had a wonderful holiday and I'd happily stay here again in the future. Ideal location for driving to Disney and the theme parks (about 25 minutes door to door), lots of shops and restaurants a short drive away, and very peaceful for relaxing in the swimming pool. The lake at the back of the villa is beautiful and makes a great back-drop for sitting on the patio to relax.

The villa is incredibly spacious, clean and well-equipped. Tonnes of books, games, a telescope, pool table and table tennis - plenty to keep everyone occupied when in the villa. The wifi was quick, the information pack and advice from the owners was spot on and helpful. I'd fully recommend booking this villa.

Great place in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

Very roomy house in a good location close to Disney. All the necessities were already present, we only needed to supply our groceries for the week!Customer service was great as issues due to heavy storm were taken care of immediately. Would recommend to all and definitely return. Pool and hot tub were great, as was the hi-speed internet access.

Thanks again Jean and Michael!

Lovely villa with an outstanding lake view

  • 4 of 5

We rented this villa for a week at the end of October 2015 to use as a base during our own Florida vacation home search. Sandy Ridge although ungated is a lovely community and we felt very safe there and saw security patrols every afternoon and night.

The owners were very responsive during the booking process and provided loads of really helpful information about the villa, location and Orlando generally. They also called the villa during our stay.

The villa is in a nice quiet location that is very private with an outstanding view of the lake from the south facing pool deck. . ( I’m actually using a picture of the lake view from the pool as my screen saver on my PC )

It is really well laid out and the communal areas were big enough to accommodate 8 adults without feeling we were in each others way. All the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.

The villa is in a great location only a few minutes drive to Champions Gate local shopping and the theme parks.

Thanks Jean & Michael for letting us use your villa.
