We booked and stayed in this fantastic villa for 14 days. The villa is very spacious, comfortable and in a quiet neighbourhood. The outdoor pool and indoor games room just added to this perfect villa. It's literally on the doorstep of Disney just of US192/I-4 and getting about is very easy to navigate. We wouldn't hesitate on returning to the villa when we visit Orlando in the future. It literally is a home from home on the other side of the Atlantic!
Davella is a great locaton for a Disney/ Universal holiday - its just off the 192 and close to supermarkets, etc. The house is excellent - very clean with all of the things you need. The pool is great for the kids, and the jacuzzi is great for the adults. Ella was always very responsive to our requests. Would highy recommend.
We have stayed in various villas and condos in the vicinity of this property. We love this area, as it is close to several of our favourite restaurants on the 192. There are a few Publix supermarkets and two Walmart supermarkets nearby. Most importantly, Disney is only 15 - 20 mins away depending on traffic.This is a good size property in a nice residential area. We are a party of four; this house had more beds and bedroom space than we needed (sleeps 8 comfortably). The ground floor is generous too, though ideally suited to no more than 6 adults. The pool area is clean and pool itself is a good size, the spa is an added bonus. The washroom, with direct access to the pool, is an excellent feature (one that we look for, having experienced this luxury at a previous property we stayed at). We paid for pool heating, as it can be (and was towards the end of our stay) chilly in winter months. After two days the pool reached a good temperature, but was not warm enough for the first couple of days as the heating was only switched on the day the day of arrival - perhaps a suggestion, when not all guests request heating, would be to heat pool from day before arrival and then turn it off day before departure? The garden is very well maintained and a lovely feature to look out onto - so many other rental properties look out onto neighbours' pools or a concrete wall. The house is furnished with everything you need; towels, glasses, cooking utensils, crockery etc. We did not use the games room in the garage, as balls were missing and nets damaged etc - just misuse from previous occupants. Unfortunately, the guests prior to our arrival did cause some damage to the property and the furnishings. This was reported to the management company, though we were not impressed with their response. We then contacted the owners directly, who were very professional. Within a couple of days, they arranged for the cleaners to re-visit, carpets to be cleaned and gave us some compensation. It was not the best start to our stay, however the owners did everything they could to remedy a situation out of their control. When booking accommodation, you are not just booking the property, but also employing the services of the property manager / owner. Their response to situations is just as important in a review as the physical property itself. Overall, I would recommend this property and it's owner and would definitely consider renting any of the four properties that the owner has available.
After a last minute decision to rent a house instead of staying at a hotel we found this home. So happy we did!! Wonderful, clean, fully equipped!! Plenty of room for the family and my parents who came up to stay. The kids enjoyed the pool and fun game room. Close enough to Disney and all stores. We plan on staying again after the Holidays!!
Everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing family holiday. Great communications with homeowners. Well maintained and within easy access of amenities and parks. Had a fabulous time and would highly recommend to others.
My family and I had an amazing time. House was clean and offered lots of space. I think we mostly enjoyed the large pool. We spent most of the time there! Kids did not want to leave. Grocery stores are minutes away so grabbing a few things quickly was nice. Visiting the magic kingdom/Disney was only a short drive as well. We found the area nice and quiet. Had sand cranes in the front yard a few times. The kids thought that was pretty cool. Id recommend Showcase of Citrus only 10 min away. Had a great time there with the kids. Ella the owner was easy to deal with and helped make this rental an easy decision. I would recommend this house!
We had a great time at the Davella house. It was perfect for us. Very nice. Nice neighborhood. It was fantastic. It is near Sea World, Animal Kingdom etc. The communication with the owners was also great. Quick respons. I recommend this house too anyone who likes the tranquility after spending the whole day in parks or on the road. It is PERFECT.
