“Lackluster, better options available elsewhere”

Unless you are solely shopping on price, avoid this house!

This is an older house in an older development in Davenport, and its age is really beginning to show. While it initially met our criteria for a king-sized bed and flat-screen TVs, upon arrival things quickly deteriorated.

The lighting throughout the house is terrible. There is one set of dim fluorescent lights above the kitchen, while the rest of the house is lit by old incandescent bulbs, many of which were either burned out or non-functional upon our arrival (one of the two bed-side lamps in the master bedroom had a broken switch and could not even be turned on).

The king-sized bed in the master suite is long past its functional age. This was one of the worst mattresses I have ever slept on. Lumpy and clearly sagging to one side. On the other hand, the double in the second bedroom was quite comfortable, but obviously only large enough for one person. I cannot comment on the four twin beds across the remaining two rooms as no one used them during our stay.

The living room couches were also pretty bad. The larger of the two was missing its two rear cushions, so random throw pillows were used to hide this fact and provide some sort of (mostly inadequate) cushioning.

The thermostat in the house is locked behind a plastic box, so you cannot adjust the temperature from the pre-set 76 F. Expect periods of intense heat (during the day) and extreme cold (at night). I've never before rented a house in Florida where you cannot adjust the thermostat.

The four bedroom house has only two bathrooms (in my experience, most 4 bedroom houses in Davenport are 2.5 baths). The plumbing was an issue from the start. Water flow in the toilets is *very* sluggish and the plumbing struggles to flush anything. After a few days, the toilets backed up severely. The management company came out to fix it, and spent 3 hours bumbling around until they finally snaked the line to clear it.

The pool looks out on a large wetland area directly to the rear, which is very nice, however there is no fencing or shrubs to block the views to the left and right, so you have very little privacy on the deck and in the pool while the neighbors are also out. The lanai screens are torn in many places, or simply not attached to their frames in others. As a result, we had to deal with a daily influx of large bugs, frogs, lizards, and even a snake and a turtle.

The pros? There are very nice large televisions throughout the house, with access to cable and blu-ray players. The kitchen was one of the better stocked kitchens that I've experienced in various rentals, with decent pots and pans, silverware, and kitchen gadgets.

Overall though, I really cannot recommend this house unless price is your only concern. There are hundreds of available rentals in the Davenport area to choose from--exercise your options.

We always welcome guest comments, unfortunately this review results from the fact we had to request security deposit be retained to cover part of our costs in repairing damage caused by guests blocking toilet by continued excessive use of toilet paper. Majority guest comment factually incorrect. Sofa has no missing cushions (sofa bed), 2nd bed is double, designed to fit 2 people. Florida is a tropical climate and small insects etc will find their way through any open pool fence door. If contact made at time management co would have been happy to meet your needs. We are sorry you only advised of bulbs, air con at review. We are arranging for pool fence to be fixed. Prospective guests, please check out our other reviews. Thank you.

“Lovely villa”
Reviewed May 5, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing stay at the villa. Location is perfect for Disney etc, being close to the i4. Lovely quiet spot on a nice estate. Owners communication has been great throughout the booking. The villa is comfortable and has everything needed for your stay. Wonderful views from the pool. Would certainly recommend!

“Excellent villa”
Reviewed March 29, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We had a brilliant holiday at this villa .Barbara and John could not have been more helpful and kept enquiring if everything was ok. The villa was well managed, very clean and in a beautiful location. We even had a pair of cranes come to visit every day with their adorable days old chick. I would not hesitate to rebook.

Last year house I rented was much better and I didn’t have to pay for the heater for the pool. I was never told it wasn’t included in my price. The carpets were dirty and the trash from the previous renters did not get rid of the trash and it smelled terrible. .i left the house much cleaner then what I got it.. all the sheets were washed and all the dishes were done. I expect my security deposit to be returned shortly.

We sent Frank a courtesy email on his arrival home and this was his full response:
“We are home now and it was a pleasure spending time at your home.  Maybe next year we could do it again.”

In response to his review:
As Frank arrived well before check in time, the cleaner to whom he was very rude was still at our home, therefore his comment was unjustified. He made his reservation for 2 adults but just days before he arrived he had invited 2 more people to join them, these extra guests were not on the booking. He sent a message to us to say garbage was left in the garage to which I immediately apologised saying as he had arrived on a Sunday the waste would be collected by morning as this is the normal collection day. In response to Frank’s comment about pool heat, he did NOT request this at any time but I offered to have the pool heated if he so desired. He never responded to my email.
Whilst we welcome guest feedback, we are very surprised at Frank’s comments bearing in mind he has already expressed an interest in returning next year.
Frank was a very difficult and demanding guest who clearly wanted everything for nothing.
We attempted to meet all his requirements during his stay and he completely failed to respond to any of our prompt responses to his numerous emails and chose not to contact our management company for any assistance.
We completely dispute this review and do not wish this to be published as we do not feel it in any way reflects the standard of our home.

Me and my wife rented this Villa for getaway from cold and windy weather home. The villa was as described and the owners did everything to make our stay as best as they could. The villa was spotless inside out. Our daughter and son in law with their 3 children visited us and had a great time by the pool.

We traveled with 4 small children. They had more fun at the house swimming and at the beach instead of disneyworld. Everything was provided and I have no complaints. Everyone was so friendly at the grocery store. Only complaint was it rained everyday but hey! What can you do about that. There was plenty of room for everyone and house was immaculate. We stayed from a saturday to saturday this july 2015. We hated to leave!!!
