About Mrs Dympna Tuck

I live in the Southern part of the UK with my husband and teenage son. We thoroughly enjoy Florida, and work hard during the year, so that we can enjoy our trips out to the villa.

Why Mrs Dympna Tuck chose Davenport

We bought this property as it was the perfect size for both us and our renters. We fell in love with the view and tranquility from the first moment we viewed it.

What makes this villa unique

We love the view, peacefulness, and extra large deck. The villa is a fantastic size for a single family or two families holidaying together.

Great location and great house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house. It was perfect for all of us (6 adults and 2 kids). The house if fully equipped with everything you need. Location is relatively close to the parks (20 minutes drive) and close to shopping malls and places to get groceries. I would totally recommend the place.

Villa has everything!

  • 5 of 5

Great location only a short drive to the parks with lovely views across the lake. The gated community is well maintained.

The villa itself is lovely, a real home from home with good kitchen utensils, books, dvds, games etc. The pool area has a great extended decking area ideal for soaking up the Florida sunshine. Highly recommend a holiday here. We are hoping to return in 2018!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for perfect villa then this is it ! Lovely and clean, everything you need and easy access to I-4 and major attractions. We had a fantastic time and it was lovely to return to villa just to chill on the pool deck after a busy day and have a dip in the nice warm pool ( pool heat recommended though in November ). Would recommend without hesitation and we hope to return soon.

Beautiful well equipped stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a true home from home. It is a lovely, very comfortable place to relax after a busy day in the parks. The villa is just 5 minutes drive from the I4 which is really handy for getting around.

The description does not give this villa justice and the information and communication from Dympna the owner made it a very relaxing and straightforward trip from the airport after a long flight.

Location wise the villa is set in a very quiet area which is very relaxing, looking out on the lake with the crane birds coming up for a look every now and then!! There is a great supermarket 5 minutes drive away and also a really good Chinese take away. In the same area there are some nice places to eat with a good Chillies and a Millers ale house which opened whilst we were there and was very good. We also ate in a restaurant called Ovation which was really nice and jus 5 minutes away.

The location is south of the main attractions but near the I4 so it took around 30 minutes to Universal which is the furthest north and 20 minutes to Sea World.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
