Luxury 6/6.5 bed/bath Pool Home, close to Disney on Gated Resort Community
About Pat Richardson
My Husband and I live in Yorkshire, England. We own several rental properties. When we travel we look for comfort and luxury, a place where we can take relax and have fun in the sun in our home away from home - we decided to buy our own and rent it to like-minded people. In 2014 we bought our first property Orlando, Florida where we plan to enjoy time in the sun and hope you will want to enjoy it too in our lovely home. Since then we have added more properties to our rental portfolio, to satisfy our guests booking needs many of whom make us our first choice to ensure the quality of accommodation they love.
Pat Richardson purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Pat Richardson chose Davenport
We chose this property for the view from our pool area, its layout and the community facilities. It is fabulous, light and airy, with quiet open views from the pool - we are sure you will love it as much as we do The location .in South Orlando is, very close to the I4 and only 15 minutes from Disney, yet just far enough away from the busy crowds. Champions Gate with is many bars, restaurants and eateries is less then 5 minutes away. Posner park shopping is around 5 minutes too. We love to go to Celebration, for its bars and restaurants and its just a quick hop up the I4 to our favourite pub the Town Tavern, just 15 minutes door to door. We chose the Solterra Gated Resort Community because of the quality of the community, variety of houses, spacious plots and most of all the fabulous resort Club house and pool area. We dont play golf, but thought it would be great for those who do as you have many courses in the area, one only 2 miles away.
What makes this Villa unique
Our property has lots of living space, it has a family room for all the family to watch TV and eat, another spacious living room with a games table for the adults, large TV with full sports channels and gaming, games room with slate bed pool table, etc We have made sure that bedtime is super comfortable with pillow top mattresses for all and luxury high thread-count bedding! We chose this model house because it had a ground floor king-size room for those who can quite manage the stairs, or prefer to pop right into the pool from bed! As well as a second king suite. The pool area is amazing, with custom designed 30 ft pool, spa and super comfy seating to enjoy Florida's outdoor lifestyle The location in the spacious Solterra Community is quiet - on a short cul de sac - and behind is a wonderful quiet open view. Its close to everything! Shopping, Parks, Restaurants - our favourite place to visit "Celebration" and of course the beaches are only an hour or so away to either coast! Easy day trip either way. Our pool deck gets the sun all day, whilst providing shade, as its often a tad warm in that wonderful Florida Sun! but is great to kick bag and relax on the comfortable cushioned furniture and chat about the events of the day or dream of adventures still to come Ask about early or late check in's - we will try to accommodate you depending on other guests arrivals and departures.

The Villa with Everything!
This villa is first class. It has everything and more to ensure a comfortable stay. It was very clean, extremely well equipped and is incredibly spacious. It must live up to anyone's expectations and we cannot recommend it highly enough. It is well located, feels very secure and also has very good community facilities. Both the owner and the management company were very approachable and responsive. We had an amazing time and would love to return.
Perfect villa for large group
Excellent villa. Good location. Communication with owner very good and found them extremely helpful. Directions and entry instructions spot on. Villa nice and clean with everything you need for a fantastic stay. Good sized pool and outside space. Patio furniture plentiful enabling adequate seating for our party of 10. We chose not to take pool heat. Pool was good temperature enabling a refreshing dip with the hot weather. Inside the villa decoration is of good standard and well thought out. Bedrooms are all nicely decorated too. Upstairs balcony is a bonus but beware mosquitos at night. Some of our group made a tasty supper for the little beasts 😁� The master bedroom upstairs and down have king beds which were comfortable. The queen bedrooms again were nicely furnished although our occupants did not find the mattresses comfortable. Same issue in both twin bedded rooms. A lot of villas close to Disney have child specific decorated twin rooms and I feel the owners have given thought to the decoration. Whilst appealing to children not over the top so still suitable for adults. All bedrooms have en suite facilities. Most rooms have shower over bath. For those with mobility concerns the en suite for the downstairs king room is not suitable as this has a shower over the bath rather than a walk in shower. if you choose to book this villa, which I certainly recommend its worth noting: there is no starter pack of basics such as coffee, toiletries etc so you will need to stock up straight away. Owners do provide toilet rolls and hand soap in the bathrooms. There is spray cleaner for worktops and there was a supply of bin bags with some dishwasher tablets though these should be topped up. Don't forget to purchase your filters for the coffee machine. We did leave some but there were none on arrival. There is a lovely trash bench out front which will take 2 bin bags. Emptied on a daily basis. We found as long as we put rubbish out each day the refuse collection service was fine. There is a 7-11 at the gas station a very short walk up the road which has a good selection of essentials on offer. Would suggest that you check use by dates closely as on 2 occasions when we went in for milk it was past its use by date. The complex on the resort has a great lazy river, pool and slides. There is also a gym and small cafe. The cafe food was reasonably priced and tasty.
Thank you so much for your comprehensive review - i am sure our prospective guests will be grateful for your input.
Thank you for advising regarding the beds - the majority of our guests compliment us on the comfort of the mattress we use, so we will of course be checking these and taking any necessary action. We have been looking into the provision of a welcome pack for the basics - over and above the one we supply already to aid housekeeping containing cleaner, washpads/cloths/ dishwash soap, laundry and dishwasher tabs and bin bags. plus toilet roll and soap in each bathroom, so we hope you will be pleased to note we are looking into adding new starter toiletry packs in each bathroom and a small starter refreshment pack for the kitchen. We aim to exceed your expectations when staying in our homes and are always looking to improve our offering to our guests, so we are very grateful for your input on these points.
Family vacation 4 generations
Our family stayed at this beautiful house for our vacation. Our ages was from 6 months old to 84 years old. There was plenty of things to do at the house that kept all the kids entertained from the time they got up till bedtime. I enjoyed cooking in the beautiful well furnished kitchen and on the outdoor grill. There is plenty of space so you never feel crowed. Pat always answered any questions promply. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks for enabliling us to create so many wonderful memories. I will definitely come back.
Thank you for your review, we look forward to welcoming you back to one of our homes in the future. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions about any of our homes.
Wonderful owners and house!
Slight snafu at check in which was our fault. House was wonderful and owners were very kind, prompt, and helpful!
Beautiful Home with Convenient Location to all Parks
The home was spacious and well-equipped with all necessities for a group of 10 people. It was conveniently located to all parks and the community clubhouse was so relaxing and fun. The kids had a great time in both the house pool and on the clubhouse lazy river. We had a minor issue with the grill not having enough propane, but we contacted management, and they kindly brought us a new tank the next day. Would recommend this home to all travelers!
I am so sorry you didnt feel you could give our home a 5 star review, following the report of a few minor issues after your stay - but we can assure you that these have been dealt with. Thank you for advising us.
More than I expected
We have a large family and the house was more than accommodating. It is very roomy and well stocked with anything you need. It is beautifully decorated and in a great neighborhood.
We were finally able to get to the clubhouse on our last day and it also was amazing. A lot of room to swim around and relax.
We would definitely stay there again!
