About Cristina Ciuciu

My husband and I have two girls, 19 and 11 year old. We live in a suburb near Philadelphia, and love to get away from everyday life as often as we can, and enjoy the sun and fun. We always have friends join us on these trips, as we have plenty of room. The kids love the pool and the community club house, the women love the shopping, and the guys chill and play pool.

Cristina Ciuciu purchased this villa in 2008

Why Cristina Ciuciu chose Davenport

We always vacationed in the area about 3 times a year even before we bought our home. We loved it, our girls loved it, and so, we decided it would be better to have our own little heaven to get to whenever we wanted to.

What makes this villa unique

The one thing we made sure we had in our home, were comfortable beds. That was one thing we could never be sure of when we used to rent before. I am a nurse in an Intensive Care Unit, so my job is very physical, with a lot of heavy lifting, so my back is telling the tale of my job, and I can't sleep on just everything. For this reason, when we bought this home, I made sure we have memory foam mattresses on the beds, so everybody can get a good night sleep when they vacation there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Cristina,



Sorry it has taken me soooo long to get back to you. We had a wonderful vacation! Your villa is beautiful and we will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much for everything.

There is a child security fence around the pool area and pool toys for everyone to enjoy. The south-west facing pool is enclosed in a net cage which keeps the insects at bay and allow you to sunbathe all day on the five recliner chairs with ottomans and a chaise padded by the most comfortable cushions. There are also two snack tables for you to enjoy your drinks while using the pool area. The spa has the added advantage of a rapid heat facility for those evenings when a soak in the tub would round off a perfect day. Furthermore, we have installed a privacy screen around the pool cage so that spending time by the pool will be even more enjoyable. Recreational Rooms: In the den, there is a flip-flop sofa, a leather storage bench with 2 rocker chairs, as well as a 26' HDTV with a PlayStation 2 game console and 12 PS2 video games.

Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. This Villa was so clean and well kept. We especially enjoyed the salt water pool & the hot tub. As a mom of 6 kids I particularly liked that there was a washer & dryer in the garage. It made my life much easier. The villa is located very close to a lot of things including Walmart, grocery stores, fast food restaurants, etc. The gated community was very well kept & the staff at the gates were very friendly. We felt very safe. We will definitely stay here again on our next vacation! Thank you!!!

Quiet, yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this house!! There were 11 of us ages 5 all the way to 77, no complaints from anyone. The pool and hot tub were so nice to come home to after our adventures. The houses are close together but we didn't even notice, it's very quiet and relaxing. EVERYTHING was there to make you feel as if you're at home. We cooked most meals there and it was a breeze. The beach towels in the tote are so useful and the noodles in the garage was great for the kids! We will stay here again if we vacation near Orlando again...

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Alexandra. We traveled with 5 adults and 2 toddlers and there was enough room for all of us. Cristina made accommodations to get an extra high chair and pack and play for us, which was great! We loved that the villa has its own pool but you can also use the community pool, clubhouse and playground. It's in a perfect location- close to Disney, about an hour from Busch Gardens and there is lots of shopping around.

Any concerns we had, we called the management company, which answered right away and delivered what we needed that day or the next day. Wonderful service! Thanks for having us!

OUR Villa ELEXANDRA EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, welcoming home at a long journey.

Listing description was accurate.

Property was clean and well maintained.

Owner provided excellent customer service-THANK YOU!

Yes, I would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

The Pool and Spa were a delightful treat after a long day in the Disney Parks. The Clubhouse was fabulous.

We dined at various places, with excellent service and good food.

Our whole family visited all parks of the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Sea World, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center. Did lots of shopping. Dannie's was our favorite breakfast restaurant. We dined at the Olive Garden-Lovely! and inside the Parks. Overall it was lovely family experience! Thank you kindly.

Some constructive feedback:

On our first evening in the home, we noted that a number of the smoke detectors were beeping. (Hard to sleep). The ones we could reach, we changed the batteries and were ok. We called the house manager and someone came and replacement the rest that were beeping. (rather unfriendly chap). The explanation he gave us however was a little unusual. He told us that the batteries were all ok, but due to us being there, we were creating a lot of dust and the detectors were going off because of dust particles in the air. We accepted this without problem. However, I took it upon myself to check the dust screen to the furnace. Surprise! It appeared that the screen was so heavy laden with dust that it barely allowed for any air flow. Since new screens were present in the garage, I simply changed the screen. After this change, some of the detectors were still going off. We simply accepted them as they were. We simply removed the battery from one of them to stop beeping.

On another day, we got home from one of the parks and we were looking forward to a nice spa. It was a Friday. We noted however, that the water was cold, and while the humming of the pool pump seemed to be working, there was no water circulation. We called for the house manager, but were advised that since it was Friday, likely no one could come out till Monday. However, on Saturday morning, someone did come to check it out . Most unfortunate for him as he placed his bare hand on the pump motor and it was so hot that he burned his hand! I felt very sorry for him! Offered to get ice pack to help with the burn, but he left cursing and swearing about his hand! Anyway, a new pump repair team came on Monday to replace the pump. Pool/Spa now ok.
