Lovely property in quiet estate.

Loved this villa, clean, great facilities in a brilliant location. Looked forward to coming back for a swim after tiring days in the parks. Would love to stay again and would recommend to anyone looking for a villa In this location.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this villa and what can I say other than WOW. It was our first trip to the USA and the first time we had booked everything separately . Despite being nervous that I had done everything correctly Fred and Annette were fabulous from start to finish. Prior to our arrival we were given lots of helpful information relating to the villa, the surrounding area and even how far away the Disney parks were. The villa was equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need, and more. The pool area was beautiful and very private as it isn’t overlooked. The villa itself was immaculately clean and the games room was a hit with the kids. The drive into Disney was straightforward and the local Applebee’s was a big favourite with the kids. Leading up to our holiday I had various questions to ask (with it being the first time I hadn’t booked a package holiday) and Fred and Annette replied to my messages almost immediately, providing the answers I needed and putting my mind at rest. The estate on which the villa is located was beautiful and well maintained aswell. This holiday was booked as a surprise for the kids and when they were told I stressed to them that it was a once in a lifetime trip and to enjoy and make the most of every moment..........however we have since decided that may well have been a fib. The holiday was just perfect in every way that we will most definitely return, hopefully in the not too distant future. We have already recommended Fred and Annette’s villa to friends of ours. I would say to anyone thinking of booking, do it do it do it!

Stunning villa, fabulous, peaceful, location!!

This villa was everything we expected and much more!! It was immaculately clean and the beds were so comfortable. A real home away from home which was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and the washing machine and tumble dryer were so useful. The pool had the sun the entire day and we didn't need to heat it as the weather was 32 each day. We couldn't have been happier with this villa and it is a total credit to Annette and Fred who also kept me fully informed and answered all my queries. If I ever be so fortunate as to return to Florida one day I would definitely stay again in this beautiful place. Love love loved it. My Response Thank you so much Karen for taking the time to submit such a lovely review about your stay in Davenport Palms Villa. So glad to hear that you had 32 degree weather everyday and plenty of sun all day to enjoy the pool. We came in after you for our summer vacation to a villa that was left immaculate by our guests and want to thank you for taking such good care of it whilst you were on holiday! We certainly would love to see you all back again in the future should you ever come back to Florida! Hope you have an enjoyable summer back in the UK. Kind Regards, Annette & Fred

A wonderful place to stay!

From the minute we received our first communication following our decision to stay here we knew we made the right choice... Fred and Annette are wonderfully helpful hosts and the property is equally impressive. The house is exactly as per the images and the location is perfect for local shops and restaurants. Travelling to Disney is only a 10 minute drive. If you’re thinking of booking this property, do it! You won’t regret it... we certainly didn’t. My Response What a wonderful review submitted by Ben! We’re so happy you feel you made the right choice to stay at our villa for your vacation and that you were impressed with our home! We loved the location with all the choices of shops and restaurants we have in the local area and the parks being a perfect distance away from all of the hustle and bustle was the deciding factor on us buying this villa! We’ve been so lucky to have had such fantastic guests who take the time to leave us such wonderful reviews it makes it all worth while. Thank you once again Ben. Kindest Regards, Annette & Fred

From the moment we stepped inside we were overwhelmed with how clean and luxurious the villa really is. It is very spacious and had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. The kids particularly enjoyed the games room and often played in there after a hard day at the parks. From the moment we booked, Fred and Annette have been very tentative to our needs, their customer skills as second to none. Any queries we had were promptly answered and a full welcome pack and instructions were given prior to our departure. This was our first time of not booking a package holiday and doing everything separately and we must say we were a tad nervous, there was no need to be as it all sailed so smoothly. The pool area is clean and spacious and you have the added bonus of the use of a BBQ should you wish too without extra charge which is quite rare to find. There was also lots of inflatables for the kids to use, our son actually learnt to swim properly in the pool so a very proud parent moment. We have stayed on the US27 lots of times before and whilst its not on the parks doorsteps it is only a 20 minute drive down the US192 and we like the fact you are far enough away to actually kick back and relax in the quiet. You can also see the Happily ever After fireworks from the pool area! There are amenities within close distance of the villa for example just up the US27 is a huge Walmart and some restaurants. We would happily recommend Fred and Annette's villa and have already passed on details to people asking us where we sourced our villa from and how beautiful it looked. If you want a luxury stay for a great price then do not hesitate to stay in this beautiful villa. Owner's Response: Thank you Rebecca for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay at Davenport Palms and whilst a tad nervous that this was your first time not booking a package holiday that it sailed so smoothly for you. BBQs are quite expensive to hire so we like to include ours for our guests to use whilst at the villa, to hear your son also learnt to swim properly in our pool must have been a great accomplishment for him and of course mum and dad having the proud parent moment, well done Callum! Kindest Regards, Annette & Fred

Fantasic Villa

5 of 5 We spend two weeks in this beautiful villa. We really loved this place, good neighborhood and close to the mayor roads like the 192 and the I 4. The kids loved the play room and the wonderful swimming pool with a lot off space to sit and play. Every thing you need is available at this great place including nice neighbors haha. Off all the places we have been in Florida this was the best villa. For the next time we’re really want to come back here. Review Submitted: 04-Mar-2018 Date of Stay: February 2018 Source: HomeAway Owner's Response: Thank you Walter for submitting a lovely review about your stay at the villa. So glad to hear the kids enjoyed the swimming pool and the games room. Our neighbours indeed are fantastic and are a wealth of information about the area having owned their own villa next door for around 24 years and have seen lots of changes in the area during this time, including the Northeast Regional Park that’s behind us which offers so much for our guests to also enjoy during their stay at Davenport Villa, this years ago was a very large Orange Grove ....... So glad to have you all back again with a new booking for 2019. Kind Regards, Annette & Fred

A perfect family-friendly villa

We stayed in the villa for one week in January with our two young children (a 6 months old baby and a 3 years old). The villa is perfect for young children : everything from the crib, the high-chair, the baby monitors, the pool toys to the plastic dishes are in excellent conditions. The villa is also very clean so we were not afraid to let our little ones play on the floors or in the bathtub. The pool was at the perfect temperature, so we were able to enjoy it even if there was no sun. We cooked each night and found that the kitchen was well equipped. The BBQ was also spotless and nice to have! We will recommend this villa to friends and family ! And we will surely be back in the future!

Amazing

We really enjoyed the stay in the villa. It was very neat and clean. The description of the villa fit very well and even exceeded our expectations. The contact with the landlords was very uncomplicated and friendly. The neighbors were friendly and helpful, too. We have booked the villa again for next year. My Response Hi Tim, So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the villa, yes we do have extremely friendly neighbours who are always willing to help our guests with any information around the area. We look forward to having you all back with your already rebooked vacation in 2019. Kindest Regards, Annette & Fred

Perfect!!

Stayed in the villa while visiting Disney. Great location. Close to parks, grocery and restaurants. Villa was exactly as pictured--VERY clean and spacious. Had everything we needed and more. Owners were very helpful and quick to respond to my questions. We were traveling with our two young grandkids and were pleasantly surprised to open the door to a lit Christmas tree!!! Fred and Annette have thought of everything. I HIGHLY recommend this villa.

Thank you so much for leaving us a fantastic review and so glad to think it had everything you needed ...🎄 If we can be of any assistance to a future holiday in the Davenport area we would love to have you all back again! Kindest Regards, Annette & Fred
