About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our tastefully decorated Vacation home is located in the secure GATED neighborhood of Highgate Park, which is one of 7 communities in beautiful Legacy Park. We are just off Highway 27, one mile South of 192, and 5 miles North of Interstate 4. ALL DISNEY ATTRACTIONS are within a 10-20 minute drive. The KENNEDY SPACE CENTER (NASA) and both East and West coast beaches are approximately an hour drive. Grocery stores and shopping centers are a 1/2 mile drive, North or South on 27.

Once you enter our Villa, you may find it difficult to leave! The interior was designed by talented/proffessional decorators with beautiful, high quality furniture and artwork which coordinate throughout. Our villa is so relaxing and peaceful, we call it our 'Southern Comfort'.

Whether you are enjoying the large flat screen TV in the living room, playing cards by the pool or relaxing in the large garden tub while watching your favorite TV show, comfort surrounds you. Our home has both central air and heat-so whatever the weather, you will be comfortable!

As former renters, we discovered that many rental houses had HORRIBLE mattresses. We once had to put an air mattress on our bed to sleep. So, one of our top priorities was to equip our bebs with PREMIUM MATTRESSES. Our beds are so comfortable, that even my sister slept well with her very fussy,bad back.

We have 2 Master bedrooms (one King bed and one Queen) with attached baths, plus 2 bedrooms with twin beds. So bring Grandma and Grandpa, or another family to share the house and expenses. The largest master has a garden tub, separate large walk in shower and a private water closet. There is also a wall mounted TV so you can watch your favorite show while soaking in the garden tub!

Our Kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need: Dishwasher; Microwave; Garbage Disposal; Coffee Maker; Electric Tea Pot; Slow Cooker/Crock Pot; 4-Slice Toaster; Blender; Utensils and Pots and Pans. Both plastic and stoneware dishes are available as well as glass and plastic drinkware. We use the plastic dishware on the Lanai!

There are many golf courses in the area that are open to the public: Champion Gates, Polo Park and Reunion - to name a few. And the shopping in the area is fantastic and Bargains abound at Kohl's, J.C.Penny's and Belk's - all within 5 miles of our Villa! Bring an empty suitcase for all of your purchases!

So if you are looking for a beautifully decorated, comfortable and well equipped Villa, please contact us! Our HOME AWAY FROM HOME is waiting for you!

Like Mickey Mouse, we hope to 'SEE YOU REAL SOON'!!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Mike and I had been married for 40 years, before he passed away 2 years ago. I am a RN in Michigan, and Mike wa retired construction worker. We had been renting in Florida for 8 years, and then decided to purchase our own vacation home. We put all the things we learned about renting into our home. We got tired of cleaning and fixing up places that we did not own. Our friends laughed at us, saying that we are the only people they know that would travel over 1200 miles to clean a home that did not belong to us. I have OCD, and cleaning and organizing is essential to me. Before I became a nurse, I cleaned house for 15 years, and have to admit I loved it. Mike was almost as obssevive as I am, but his is more on the construction side. He liked things to be finished, level and in good working condition. So together we purchased our new vacation home in Davenport and went to work. We both are very proud of what we accomplished, and look forward to making it better everytime we stay. I still have lots of ideas and plans for the Villa. When I'm not working, my family and friends enjoy watching the hot air balloons float above us in the mornings as we sit by the pool and drink our coffee and tea. The sunsets by the pool are breath taking. We spend many hours by the pool, swimming, listening to music and playing cards. Our 3 sons, and their families are so happy with our purchase. We Have been blessed with 4 grandchildren, Blake and Carlie, 7 yrs, and Thomas adn Emily, 5 years. Each of them have made a trips to our new home, and love it. We hope that you will come and enjoy our home as much as we do. We really worked hard at making our villa a home, not just a rental. As Mickey Mouse says, 'SEE YOU REAL SOON!!' Gayle and Mike and family

Why the Owner Chose Highgate Park (Davenport, FL, USA):
We love Davenport, it is close to everything. We often go into Orlando and visit the Malls, Old Town, Putt-Putt Golf, and a wide varity of restaurants. My husband and sons enjoy the public golf courses that are nearby. We like to go to DOWNTOWN DISNEY and shop, stroll, and visit the many unique resturants, without paying the gate price. We have a great new shopping area at Highway 27 and I-4, that includes Target, J.C.Penny and Best Buy, along with 30-40 other shops. Super Walmart and Publix are within blocks for groceries. Highway 27 is growing by leaps and bounds with new little shops, Irish Pubs, sports bars, fast food, Applebee's, and fruit stands that we find interesting and fun. We are happy that they put up a traffic light on the corner of Highway 27, which makes it much easier to get in and out of our development. I love to get a pedicures at the nail salon next to Publix. They often offer special prices on their services!! We LOVE our new home, and it's location to everything fun and exciting in Central Florida!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love that our house is a single level. We have rented homes with a second floor before, but found it to be very inconvenient. Running up and down the stairs frequently, being limited to where my mom and dad (both have bad knees) could stay and not seeing what the kids were doing were a few of the problems we encountered. It was more work then we wanted while on vacation. With the layout of our new home, we can be together or separate accordingly. The washer and dryer are located inside the house, not in the garage. I found this to be easier, I hated having to put shoes on to do a load of laundry. Our pool faces SOUTH, so you don't have to spend the day chasing the sun. We have stayed in homes, where our guest had to sit in the driveway or at the side of the house to sun-bathe. Not with a SOUTH facing pool!! The sun is with you ALL day. The covered lanai allows you to be in the shade if you need a break from the sun. Also we can sit outside and play cards even in a gentle rain. The child-safe pool fencing makes everyones stay more relaxing, without having to worry about annoying door and window alarms, or not being able to have the sliding glass doors opened to enjoy the Florida breeze. We are within 15-20 minutes (depending on traffic) of DISNEY, and 20 minutes to Universal and Sea World. Having a gated community with security guards is also a plus. It cuts down on vehicle traffic. It adds an extra layer of security for everyone. It is a wonderful neighborhood with rolling landscape which makes it more interesting for walking or bike riding. We have TV's in each bedroom, along with one in the large master bathroom, (a pleasant surprise from my sons). Our home is very comfortable, and a dream come true for both me and my family.
