Davenport Lakes house description
Welcome to our awesome, just remodeled and upgraded home close to Disneyworld in Orlando! The home is professionally managed locally. Enjoy this beautiful 5br 3ba private home in the Sandy Ridge area with an awesome pool. You can also enjoy your very own Jacuzzi. The south facing pool area overlooks the nature in the surrounding area, so you have no pools right across. The large pool has a nice spa with bubbles, and may be heated in the winter months. The patio has a partly covered lanai if you wish to seek shadow, and on extra warm days you may start the ceiling fan. You also have a security fence, if needed, for use when children present. The whole terrace and pool area are covered with a screen for additional comfort and ease of care. There is a game room in the garage with a nice Ping-Pong table for those wishing to play table tennis.
This is a newly renovated and nicely upgraded home in the best part of the complex, with no neighbors behind and beautiful view of the woods and the colorful Florida sunsets. The home is one story, with easy access and beautiful tile in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as the living room/dining room area. It is located on a cul-de-sac, very close to an idyllic pond. This home is in a very peaceful setting, yet has easy access to theme parks and other attractions.
The unit has TV in all rooms and free online access, as well as bedding, towels, flatware, glasses and cutlery.
IMPORTANT: This property is professionally managed by a local, high-quality company. This means that if there are any issues, you have somebody there to help you right away.
The master bedroom is beautifully decorated with pool view and a nice King bed as well as direct access to a nice private bathroom and a large walk-in closet. Two other nicely decorated bedrooms have Queen beds. One has its own bathroom. The boys and girls will love to have Mickey and Minnie watch over them when they go to bed after another busy day in our nice vacation Paradise! If they prefer SpongeBob, one of the other rooms has two twin beds, sporting SpongeBob decor. The third bathroom is easily accessible from the pool area as well as the other bedrooms. In addition, the large sofa in the living room easily converts to another double bed. Our home also has a crib and a high chair if you bring babies or toddlers along.
Welcome, and enjoy! Please contact us immediately to book this beautiful home for your next vacation! We average one request per day, so please do not hesitate to send your request.
Did you know that every year, more than 50 million people choose Florida as their vacation destination, and that most choose Orlando? Most visitors return again and again.
Orlando is referred to as 'The Entertainment Capital of the World'! Every year, millions of people arrive here to experience this unique fantasy world. In addition to amusement parks like Universal Studios, Island of Adventure, Sea World and Walt Disney World, there are many other parks and attractions, great shopping and all kinds of restaurants. Here you will be entertained 24/7. Orlando is very family friendly, and everything is organized so both children and adults will have an unforgettable vacation.
Walt Disney Theme Parks
Walt Disney in Orlando consists of four main parks as well as two water parks, Downtown Disney with Pleasure Island and a Sports Complex. The home is located 10-15 minutes' drive from the main park!
Universal Studios and Island of Adventure
These are the movie parks in Orlando. These two parks are located next to each other, with the world's largest Hard Rock Cafe in between. Here you can experience the spectacular rollercoaster 'The Incredible Hulk', where you are shot out and into a twist. Or what about a visit 'Back to the Future'? Maybe a 3D experience with Shrek and his friends is of interest?
Sea World is a certain family's favorite. You can move between fantastic animal shows at a comfortable pace. Grab the opportunity to see dolphins, sharks and killer whales up close. Do not miss 'Kraken', den tallest, longest and fastest rollercoaster in Orlando.
The brand new LegoLand is a short drive south of Sandy Ridge. It has lots of fun adventures for the younger set, and is well worth a visit.
Wet'n Wild Water Park
This is a large water park, located by International Drive, with activities for the entire family. Here you can enjoy everything from challenging water slides with free falls, water tunnels, water spirals and wave pool, to separate pools and activities for children. There is also a sandy beach, beach volleyball court, many eateries and an arcade.
Gatorland is a one-of-a-kind, protected habitat for man and beast where adventures lurk around every corner! Internationally known as the Alligator Capital of the World, Gatorland's 110-acre theme park and nature conservatory is located in Central Florida at the head of the Florida Everglades. Once you have experienced Gatorland, it will be hard to believe that it began in 1949 as a roadside attraction!
Busch Gardens is an amusement park for the entire family. In addition to stomach-churning rollercoasters, you can here meet animals such as giraffes and lions. This beautiful park is definitely worth a visit. Try Sheikra, a new attraction where you're hanging upside-down for five seconds before you fall 90 degrees straight down.
At Discovery Cove you can swim with dolphins. You'll find an artificial beach, great snorkeling opportunities and a waterfall among the park's many attractions. In addition to swimming with dolphins and mantas, you can snorkel with tropical fish, and experience sharks almost too close for comfort.
Kissimmee Old Town
Kissimmee Old Town is THE destination for all who are interested in motor bikes and old cars. Every Saturday night there is a parade with big, old American cars. There is also a circus, rodeo, bungee jumping, human cannon balls, racing track, etc. On stage, they play hits from the 50's and 60's, and there is line dancing. The place has lots of specialty stores and bars you cannot find anywhere else.
Kennedy Space Center
About one hour drive east of Orlando you'll find Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. Here you can experience various aspects of American space flight in sound and pictures. If you are lucky you might even experience a rocket launch!
From Daytona International Speedway to the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse, there's plenty to do and places to see in the Daytona Beach area. Be sure to bring your camera and sunscreen! You can even drive your car on the beach just like early land speed record holders did. Daytona Beach is called “The World’s Most Famous Beach”. It is the Mecca for all car racing and has hosted about 80 years of motorsport events. I 1931 Sir Malcolm Campbell in his Bluebird set a new land speed record of 245 m.p.h. at Daytona which he improved several times, pushing past 300 m.p.h. in 1935. Today, Daytona 500 is considered NASCARs’ most important race, drawing millions to Florida or to the TV screens in February each year.
Richard Petty Driving Experience
Do you love speed and excitement? This is your destination! Here you can drive (or be a passenger in) a real American Stock Car on a track. The location is Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando, and you will be driving Nascar Style Stock Cars with about 600 horsepower. What an experience!
Orlando is a Mecca for golfers, with more than 300 golf courses in the area. The tropical climate makes golfing a fantastic experience year round.
Orlando is also a Mecca for shopaholics, and of special interest are the large factory outlets with incredible discounts on famous brands such as Nike, Calvin Klein, Timberland, Reebook, Donna Karan, etc. Belz Factory Outlet Mall is one of the largest outlets, located at the end of International Drive.
Be entertained by professional musicians and actors while you eat dinner. MurderWatch® takes place every Saturday at Baskerville Restaurant at Hotel Grosvenor. A very realistic murder mystery is created, and you can help solve the evening's crime. Other dinner shows include Arabian Nights, Medieval Times, WonderWorks Dinner Show, etc.
See all Orlando's attractions from the air! A helicopter ride is without doubt the best way to experience Orlando. Choose among several rides.

FANTASTIC ! ! !
FANTASTIC ! ! !
Fantastic ! ! ! ! All of us just loved it ! ! ! We arrived in the dark after midnight, it was easy to find with help of our "ALMA" (GPS) So nice to go to sleep in beautiful, delicate beds after a long flight from Norway. Morning, day and night swim in the gorgeous pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi and sunbathing by the pool. Since we were three couples we very much appreciated the privat bath in our bedrooms and also the washer and drier in the garage. Lots of things to do not far away. We enjoied Swamptour in Kissimmee. Kennedy Space Center. Our drive down to Key West. Miami. Coffe and Waffels at the Norwegian Seamen's Church in Davie. Swimming in the Gulf of Mexico at St. Petersburg and shopping at the Outlets. Thank you for our FANTASTIC stay at your vacation home, we vill surely recommend this villa to famililes and friends all over the world. Tusen Takk Mona & Olaf

Owner response: Thank you so very much for your kind comments! We love spending time in our vacation home as well. Right now we are visiting Norway, and it is COLD! The third winter storm in one week is on its way... We cannot wait to once again experience the Florida sunshine and enjoy the hot tub as the sun goes down over the woods behind the house. Welcome back! Mona
My family had a fabulous time. The house was fantastic and had everything we needed. More than enough space for large family meals and for each person to have their own space. The kids played in the pool daily.

Awesome Stay, Great House and Area!
Hi, Mona! My goodness, I cannot believe how fast the time here has passed! Thank you so much for an awesome stay in your house, which was absolutely perfect for us Norwegians visiting from the western part of Norway. We are all very happy about their stay and this area, and I will not be surprised if more people from "our neck of the woods" book their vacation with you. Just wait until we get home and can tell them all about this place! We are off to New York tomorrow. The entire group says "Thanks!" for a fantastic stay. Warm greetings from all of us!

Fantastic villa Mona we loved it!
Fantastic villa Mona we loved it!
Fantastic villa we just loved it. It is set in a beautiful very peaceful neighbour hood. There was just myself and my husband staying here for 3 weeks and it was like home from home, the villa has everything you could possibly need. It was lovely after a days shopping to get back and relax in the hot tub or have swim in the pool.The pool area gets the sun all day long so if you just want a relaxing day by the pool you can sunbathe all day.Disney and the Outlets are all within easy reach of the villa, and just up the road you will find Publix, Chinese take away, McDonald's and lots of other useful shops. We would recommend this villa to people of all ages.We would love to return again next year :)

Owner response: Thank you so much for your kind review! My husband and I also just love relaxing by the pool. Personally, I love getting up early in the morning as the morning sun hits the pool area and go for an early swim! Welcome back next year!

We Had a Fantastic Stay!
We had a fantastic stay at your home! We arrived at night, but it was easy to find the place thanks to the directions you sent. We had some clouds and light rain the few first days, but the rest of the days were fantastic with sun and great temperatures. We got to see a lot, including Tampa/St. Petersburg, Celebration/Old Town, Kissimmee, Kennedy Space Center, Key West, Miami/Miami Beach, Magic Kingdom/Walt Disney, Orlando, Gatorland, etc. But we also had many nice, lazy days by the pool with good food and drink. Because the well-appointed kitchen we often made our meals at home. Thank you so very much for a fantastic stay! We will sure recommend this to our friends and family here in Rissa, Norway.

Only one complaint- OUR STAY WAS TOO SHORT!!!
Only one complaint- OUR STAY WAS TOO SHORT!!!
Mona, thank you for sharing this property. It was nicely decorated and felt like home. We shared the home with another family and there was plenty of room for everyone. The children really enjoyed the pool!!! I would recommend this property to anyone planning to visit the Orlando area and will definitely consider staying here again for future visits. Again, thanks to you and your family for sharing this wonderful home.

Owner response: I am so glad you liked our decorations! We feel that it is very important to make sure our guests feel that they stay in a HOME, not a hotel. We keep adding personal touches each time we stay :)
Better then Home
Better then Home
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful 5 bedroom home for 10 days, and our experience was nothing short of fantastic. The house is just so welcoming as soon as we opened the front door. As you walk in you are greeted with high ceilings, gorgeous decor and light that is cascading through the curtains and filling the room. This home was the epitome of relaxation for us, we had all the amenities we needed plus the luxury of an private heated pool and hot-tub with the view of the Forest and the beautiful sky. Each room is decorated with a theme and the thought process and care into the details are evident. We also loved that we could drive less then 3 minutes down the road to a Publix (Grocery Store) , CVS, and Redbox (Movie Rentals). We are from California and to be able to get anything close to this home's size and luxury would be impossible for us to afford. Thank you for sharing your home and letting us have memories there that will last us a lifetime. We look forward to coming back again.

Owner response: I am so glad you and your husband had such a great time! We love to watch rented movies as well, and also appreciate all the TV channels available. But what we love the most when it comes to movies is to take the short drive to Downtown Disney and attend a Fork and Screen feature at the movie theatre there! You have your own table area, and can order food and drinks before and during the movie. What a treat!

I stayed here after my graduation and absolutely loved it! This is such a great locale. It has got everything you'd want to unwind or keep you casually busy. My favorite is Cape Canaveral. You can see a full scale Saturn V rocket there! This really is the perfect getaway spot to enjoy a vacation. The weather is a nice and cozy constant warm welcoming to vacationers. There are occasional rains, but they never leave you cold and never spoil vacation plans.

Owner response: Thanks for your review! We love going to Cape Canaveral as well! Another favorite of ours is the Gatorland park with a lot of interesting wildlife in addition to the many alligators. Make sure to check that one out next time you come :)

Got My Groove Back
After a busy year, I was worn out and needed to rest. A friend and I stayed in this beautifully upgraded home, visited Disney World, and explored several of the close-by restaurants. We had a wonderful time and really got to re-charge our batteries. Loved it! Strongly recommended! Local management is a huge advantage.

A Real Home Away from Home!
I had the opportunity to go to Orlando, Florida for a conference held at the Disney Resort. Instead of staying at the hotel I decided to stay at your wonderful place, which was truly a home away from home. You have put such personal touches throughout that made me feel as if I were visiting the home of a friend or family! It was an easy drive to the Disney Resort and nearby attractions. Great for a family vacation; a true Five Star experience!

About the owner: Our family is originally from Norway, but have lived in the US for almost 20 years. We love the warm climate, the pool and all the area attractions, and do not miss the snow :)
Why the Owner Chose Davenport Lakes:
We fell in love with this home the minute we walked into it for the very first time. We were already familiar with the area, but always dreamed about our own home with a pool. We love the layout with an awesome flow and beautiful Tommy Bahama furniture. Since we bought this home, we have added our personal touches, and hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This beautiful family pool home is close to Disney, but still located in a very quiet area surrounded by nature. The Sandy Ridge development is very well managed and maintained. The home is located in the best part of the development, with southern pool exposure, privacy, cul-de-sac location and an idyllic pond almost next door.
