House, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 12

Welcome to our home located in Highgate Park at Legacy Park, Davenport, Florida. Highgate Park is a GATED community located in a quiet, private area off Highway 27 yet close to everything you will require.

The home itself is a four bedroom, three bathroom home newly furnished, NEW CERAMIC FLOORING, ALL NEW CARPETING IN BEDROOMS, NEW Granite Counters in Kitchen and decorated and ready for our guests to enjoy. There is an easy flow to one story home from the entranceway through the living/dining room, to the kitchen and eating area, to the family room and finally the extended deck area with large pool and spa.

The main living/dining room is outfitted with new comfy couches and a formal dining table which seats six. Three large windows provide plenty of natural light. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you will need to prepare any and all meals from a snack to a full course buffet. All new large and small appliances are there for your convenience. The eating area of the kitchen has a NEW table for SIX and a new chandelier and a closet full of board games for the kid at heart.

The family room is large and overlooks the covered lanai and pool area. A large flat screen TV with a DVD player with 49 movies for the entire family and a Playstation with 19 game choices and dual controls will help keep all ages entertained. The screened in pool and spa area has an extended pool deck and a child safety fence to keep the little ones safe. A new gas grill with all utensils, new patio set and loungers with all new cushions make your outdoor relaxing complete.

At the end of a long day of enjoying all that the area has to offer you will have four great bedrooms to recharge in. The Master has a King bed with a NEW Mattress and large bath with double sinks, garden tub, water closet and large walk-in shower. Patio doors in the Master lead to the covered lanai and pool area. A walk-in closet has plenty of room for the storage of clothes and luggage. The second master is equipped with a Queen bed, private bath and large closet. Two other twin bedrooms, both with large closets share a third full bathroom all decorated in Disney theme. The separate laundry room houses a full size washer & dryer for a quick and easy laundry day plus an iron & ironing board for those quick touch-ups.

Shopping, restaurants, Disney, golf and other sought after attractions area a short and easy drive. A truly comfortable home to return to at the end of your day.

Area Info

Highgate Park is the envy of most communities in the area and actually backs onto a protected conservation area. We are situated only 10 miles from the Gates of Disney and yet are far enough away to enjoy peaceful evenings relaxing in your own newly resurfaced pool or walks around the neighborhood. The easy road system allows you to reach nearby supermarkets 1 mile away (some 24/7), restaurants, post office, banks, chemists (drugstores), gas stations (petrol), and a library within minutes. There is a terrific children's playground and tennis court within the gated community.

All newly added amenities this year including TV's in all bedrooms, 6 ceiling fans, loaded with extra beach and bath towels, cupboards full of dishware and silverware/utensils for cooking, coolers, pool floats, stereo with DVD player, coolers and a beach blanket and all the comforts of home...as my guests have all said this is not your typical rental...it's more like a home away from home!

About Linda Carnevali

My husband and I have been Realtors for a combined 43 years...we know what to look for in a property and truly found the perfect place four our vacations as well as our guests.

We take guest satisfaction very seriously that is why we improve this property every time we stay. We treat this house as our second home that s why you will find more "comforts of home" here than you would anywhere else.

I am one of those people that before I unpack my bags or bring them up to a room in a hotel I need to approve the hotel room first...sometimes it takes many trips to find the room I will feel comfortable in so rest assured this house is just like home...clean, bright and in perfect condition.

I know what it means to have great service and great amenities and feel I provide both to my guests.

Linda Carnevali purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Carnevali chose Davenport

We have vacationed in Disney area since 1994 and felt it was time to own a piece of the MAGIC! we looked at over 782 homes online, viewed 50 in person and bought this one...it had everything I knew I could make into the perfect vacation spot! We just updated again with all new amenities, new air conditioning, freshly painted and all new ceramic flooring and carpeting!

What makes this house unique

Only 10 miles to Disney with no traffic was a huge plus for us, all new features including furnishings and flooring, gated community, private pool area surrounded by privacy hedges all around makes for the perfect vacation destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of staying at this house in Orlando in March. The location was perfect for us to go to Disney World and it was great to be able to actually stay in a house and not a hotel. From the minute we stepped in the door, it was so warm and welcoming. We loved the Disney decorated bathroom! The pool was terrific for us to unwind after walking all day at Disney. We always like to stay in houses when we travel because we don't like to eat every meal out and like to have more space to relax if we choose to do so. We have stayed at several houses and dealt with different owners and I have to say that I typically don't write reviews like this one but dealing with these owners was such a pleasant experience and they made us feel more like invited house guests to their home than "renters." We are already looking forward to going back either later this year or next year and taking our grandchildren with us this time! Thanks for adding to our great time at Disney! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends.

Immaculate Property

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year staying at Linda's property. As the first year, everything is exactly as promised. The property is clean, well appointed, well documented and there are nice extras which make the stay so comfortable. Close to everything Orlando and close enough to Lakeland for me for Sun N Fun as well as Canaveral and other must sees. Linda and her husband go out of their way planning a perfect getaway for us. It is just like staying at your second home, without having to deal with the logistics. You'd be crazy to avoid this property if you are a respectable renter and appreciate the well taken care of property of someone who enjoys sharing their home. Enjoy

Thank you again and welcome back! Linda

5 star perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous find and the owner are extremely accommodating and respond quickly to all requests. The house is very clean and well maintained. It had everything that we needed and starting supplies of paper products. There was lots of room in the house. This would be the perfect rental for a large family or even two families sharing. The pool area is large with a covered area. One of the nicest things of the pool area unlike any of the neighboring properties is that there are mature bushes around the screen in area giving you privacy. We were a quick drive to Disney, shopping, restaurant .... anything we were looking for. I highly recommend this property and it's owners to provide you with a perfect and worry free holiday.

This was our 3rd time staying in this beautiful home (with a 4th visit booked again in April) and it never disappoints us. The house is well maintained inside and out and it will not disappoint you. From the cupboard full of board games to entertain our daughter, when she was not in the pool, to plenty of silverware, pots and pans and glasses for you to use during your stay Linda goes out of her way to ensure everything you need is there for your use. The upgrades that Linda has made from our first visit a few years ago are amazing and make the home even nicer. With it's close proximity to Shopping, with Walmart, JC Penney, Ross Dress for Less, Target, and Publix within 10 minutes, and Disney this house is in a prime location while still providing privacy from everything around you.

Linda is GREAT to deal with and she will go out of her way to ensure that you have a great time at her house. We feel at home when we are at Linda's and I now that is how Linda wants all of her guests to feel. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone who are planning a trip to Florida.

I am so glad that you all feel like you are "Home" when you are there...I strive to make all my guests feel that way and we love it there as well! I look forward to your next trip in 2017. Linda

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, clean home! Our family spent a week at this great property. We visited Disney World several days, but also spend some time at the house enjoying the pool. We were able to enjoy the warm air one evening and play a board game together on the patio. Everything we needed was available for our use. It was nice to feel safe in the gated community, also. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful family vacation!

Definitely recommended

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property which is beautifully kept. It is close to all the Disney parks (20 minutes) and as these were the key reason for our visit it made a great base. Communication with Linda was very easy, with quick responses to every question - both before and during our stay.

The kids loved having a pool to jump in after a long day at the parks and the swimming pool area is a nice place to sit in the late evening to simply relax after being on your feet for hours.

We love eating out and would recommend the Guru Indian restaurant (Clermont), Olive Garden (on the 192) and Vivo (City Walk, Universal) as great for a wide range of choice and superb service. There were others but these were our top 3.

Would definitely look to stay here if we head to Florida again, perfect for our family of 4 but could comfortably accommodate more.

Owner's Response: Robin thank you for all the great comments. We are here in our Florida house now enjoying the pool as well...so much nicer than staying at a hotel where the pool closes down before you get back from the parks...we love it here! There are so many great restaurants all around are home and they keep adding more. If you like Mexican food try Chuy's right down the street...awesome! I look forward to having you back for your next vacation. Linda

Beautiful, Well-maintained,, Close to Attractions

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days over the New Years Holiday and were very impressed with the house. It is very spacious, well maintained, clean and had everything that we needed to either dine in or take advantage of the restaurants that were only a short drive away. Very close to all the parks and recreation areas. It is in a lovely, quiet gated community. It has a good sized, heated pool that we didn't get to use much due to the rainy weather. There is plenty of outdoor space to sit and relax. (never tired of this!). Loads of outdoor pool, beach stuff in the garage to borrow and helping to make this house extremely homely and comfortable. Having stayed in many homes etc over the years this is one of the best. We would definitely recommend. Linda is very pleasant to work with. PS. Sorry Linda for the delayed review, thought I did it when we came back. Better late than never.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tom we are so glad you had a great time at our home. We just remodeled the outdoor space with a new table and chairs, refinished the entire pool deck, pool and spa and purchased some new furniture inside as well. We love the outside space as much as the inside so I continue to improve on both. We look forward to your next stay! Linda
