About Helen & Gary Barnes

We are based in the UK and have been married since 1982, we have two grown up daughters and are now proud grandparents of both 2 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. Gary is a Engineer and I am a homemaker.

Helen & Gary Barnes purchased this villa in 2012

Why Helen & Gary Barnes chose Davenport

We wanted a property that ticked all our boxes, on a good community, not overlooked, light and airy, large pool with spa that is not too far from the parks but also near to supermarkets and other amenities. A property that would be a good holiday home for both ourselves and our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst most people would have been happy with the villa as it was we drew up and have been carrying out a scheme of upgrades, starting with replacing the linens and cook/dinner ware, we then replaced the bedroom furniture in the master bedrooms, replacing and increasing the amount of patio furniture, replacing the fans in the bedrooms with thermostatic fan/lights, converting the garage to a bespoke air-conditioned games room, repainting the pool deck, installing mood lighting to the pool & spa and installing a pool side thermostatic shower replacing the existing lounge fan with a large remote controlled fan and with further upgrades planned

Overall we had a wonderful experience and the layout of the house worked great.

  • 4 of 5

Our only negatives were 1) The towels left an excessive amount of lint when drying off after a shower and 2) There were ants in the game room and kitchen when we arrived and they were covered in and around the trash can in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brian for your review. The towels were all replaced with luxury spa quality this year and were pre-laundered before use to help reduce/eliminate any excess lint. You may have been provided with some of our less or previously unused towels. As bugs are prevalent in the hot humid Florida weather we have a contract with pest control company who treat the house once a month and, as detailed in our House Binder, there is a contact name and number for a free call out service should any guests find any evidence of unwelcome pests. As always, the Caretakers are on call for any guests' concerns. We are glad that the layout of the house worked well for you and that you had an enjoyable holiday. Kind regards Gary and Helen

Exceptional place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thought the property looked fabulous from the website but it was even better in reality. Nice homely touches around the place and spotlessly clean when we arrived. Ideally located for the many attractions Orlando has to offer. Pool area is amazing with the mood lights and Jacuzzi was perfect relaxation after a hard day around the theme parks! Can't fault anything at all. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday

if it was mine I wouldn't change a thing! !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a long day of travelling and what felt like even longer getting through customs we were all quite grouchy on the drive to villa as it was 2 am our time and we had been up since 6 , but the min we walked in every ones mood instantly lifted .Omg the only word to describe. I had been recommended this villa by a friend and she had not let me down. First thing you notice is how clean every thing is spotless. I had read some reviews about the beds we all loved them myself staying in the downstairs master and have 2 slipped discs in my back I always wake with back pain but not here fantastic nights sleep . There was six adults one child in our party and the space was just perfect for us never under each other feet . We went to do the parks etc but ALL of us agree we would have been more than happy to have spent the full 2 weeks in villa . We all couldn't wait to get home after long days at the parks and dive into pool and spa it's so lovely especially at night with the mood lighting we loved this also downstairs living room couch is just so comfy once i was sat on it i didnt want to move.the kitchen super well equipped to cook breakfast every morning and evening meals. The master bedroom is fantastic I didnt want to come back to my old room. Games room was always going to be a fave will the boys and was a welcome addition for us women wanting a bit of peace haha .upstairs was another living room wish we would have used this more as it's a luvly space. Two twin rooms and two further bathrooms one ensure to the second master my older children stayed up there with there partners and they where in awe of it. All in all for our family this was 100% the best option for us there wasn't a downside at all not one thing. Helen you have been a pleasure to deal with thank you for allowing us access to your home . This villa made our holiday.

Orlandovillaforall - Davenport Florida

  • 5 of 5

I actually found details of the above villa via a mutual friend. As I was local, the owners Helen and Gary were able to provide a satnav armed with all of the local attractions which was very generous of them and proved invaluable.

I spoke with them and they were very helpful giving us some very useful advice. The management company usually deal with issues on site however despite there being contact details available at the villa should you need to call them we found that everything was perfect for our stay therefore the need did not arise.

The villa is very spacious, we were a family of four however there is ample space for two families and for each to have their privacy.

The villa was in an ideal location not only for parks, amenities, shopping outlets etc but also for a tranquil retreat from it all on your lazy days. The pool and games room were excellent, a real asset.

The villa was clean, well equipped and the management company attended twice during our stay to do their weekly pool service/clean. We were out on both occasions so did not find this imposing.

I would definitely stay at this villa again it was pivotal in the enjoyment of our Florida holiday experience and I would highly recommend it to everyone. In fact I already have!

Serviceable but it could use some TLC/Upgrades

  • 3 of 5

For the most part our stay was okay - not great, but not terrible either. In general the house could simply use some maintenance TLC and I would have brought it up to 4 stars. The couch and love seat in the LR were terrible. The cushions are so worn out you could feel the support digging into your back. Likewise the mattress in the master bedroom downstairs has seen better days. I had to clean up the grill, but I readily admit I am picky about cooking surfaces. On the plus side was the game room (better than average for houses in that area) and the pool (also better than two other properties we stayed at previously).

The AC had serious problems keeping up with the house. In general the thermostat was reading 85-87 during the day, by the time the sun went down it would retreat to 76, which is what it was set at during our stay. If you are spending the day at the attractions that is fine, but if you are sitting around for a day of rest it proved less than fun. Luckily there are plenty of fans in the rooms otherwise daytime was sweaty.

I noticed two water spots on the ceiling when I arrived, both appeared to have been patched. The one on the upper floor was from a leaky roof and the second was in the master bathroom. The second one appears to be from the upstairs hall bathroom. We just closed off this room as the caulk appeared in poor shape, which was probably the source of the leak. We left a note when we left - it is possible it has already been corrected, but we just did not want to take a chance on a dodgy bathroom.

Other houses that we have stayed at in the area have upgraded their appliances. While the ones in this house are older they are serviceable, just expect them to be a bit noisier that newer models. Along the same thought. Instead of a passkey system, the house is accessible from a single house key and an outside realtor-style box. This makes things are bit less convenient.

Either the WiFi or the Internet service was not up to snuff; however, I doubt anyone except someone needing to work would notice it. Streams would buffer or stutter at moments, but it was only a problem when I had to VPN into work. This would not impact the vase majority of the people and I would not knock the house for this - I know that my work requires a pretty speedy and stable connection. Just wanted to make any other business travelers aware of potential problems.

Owner's Response: Hi Chip We are sorry that you felt our home did not meet your expectations; we value all our guests’ feedback, although we are surprised by some of your comments. We have spoken at length with our Caretaker who has investigated your concerns. Mattress comfort is a very personal thing and is high on our priority list hence the mattresses in our Masters were replaced with high quality ones approximately 2 yrs ago, I have a work colleague staying end of next week and will ask him for his opinion and we will also check when we are out at the end of the year. We will also inspect the leather couches, which again, are not that old and no one has commented on before; the Caretaker does not see a problem. We always encourage guests to contact the Caretaker with any issues so as they can be corrected as quickly as possible, the next guest after yourselves reported the Air con problem and the Service Technician reset the controller as one of the zones had inadvertently been turned off, the system is now functioning correctly. We have considered before ‘locking’ the controller off as many vacation homes do but feel the guests should have the ability to change the temperature as desired. We have had the Internet supplier check the line/equipment which is operating at the optimum rate for the residential package today but cannot advise if this was the case when you were staying. The temporary ceiling repair in the bathroom will be dealt with when there is a sufficient break between guests; the damage was caused by a ‘Freeze up’ of the Air con unit by a previous guest. As can be seen on our own website, we have a comprehensive ongoing upgrades program, prioritised to enhance our guests’ experience. Thanks again for your review. Kind regards Gary & Helen
