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

Great property to enjoy a Disney vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great home away from home. My family and friends really enjoyed our stay there. It is spacious, nicely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed the big dining table where we can seat all 4 children and 4 adults for breakfast.

The owner was very accommodating, responsive and absolutely wonderful to deal with.

I would definitely recommend this property and visit again.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa the last week of August 2017. Upon arrival we found the Villa to be clean and well maintained. Everything you need is there and shopping is close by.

The pool was an added bonus and great to come back to after visiting the parks or remaining there for the day. We all also enjoyed the game room.

The proximity of the Villa is near major highways and easy to get to the many parks and attractions.

The booking process was very easy, owners very helpful and caretakers available if needed.

We would not hesitate to book again when travelling to Orlando.

Thank you Helen and Gary for a fabulous stay!

Amazing holiday perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this wonderful home. There have been a few upgrades done since our last visit and they add too the whole experience.

The villa was very clean and well maintained the pool was cleaned every week and the caretakers were easy to get hold of if we needed anything.

We spent 4 amazing weeks there and had plenty of time to do all the theme parks and have plenty of rest days.

We will be booking again in the future hopefully sooner rather than later.

Pool is amazing villa is perfect and situated in the perfect location for all parks and there are plenty if shops and restaurants close by.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa in April 2017 for 2 weeks on a family holiday and had a great time.

This villa is fabulous, clean and spacious and has everything you need. We all loved the pool and the hot tub which was very relaxing after the busy days in the parks.

The location is great, Publix is just down the road and Walmart is 10 mins drive away. There's lots of eating places close by and it's not far to drive to Disney.

The owners are very helpful and informative, nothing is too much trouble. We can't wait to return to this wonderful villa.

Excellent Villa and Help Make Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as we expected and fulfilled everything we could have hoped for before arriving.

With 4 adults and 1 child in our party there was more than enough room for us all, in fact there were 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom that we did not even use.

All amenities with the villa were excellent especially the play room and pool which our youngest visitor loved. The grandparents also liked the hotter spa pool too.

Internet was quick and fast and allowed all 4 adults to stream and use on different devices.

Bonus with having fans and heat/light remote settings in every bedroom which made life easy.

Location wise the villa was in a good location close to Publix and a little further Walmart for groceries and also close to some restaurants and the 192 which had many more.

About 20 mins from Disney parks depending on I4 traffic too.

Only 1 small problem with the safe, however, upon reporting this the response from owners and caretakers was excellent and prompt.

All in all an excellent villa which indeed helped in making our holiday, and our youngest's first trip to Disney/Orlando, a memorable one.

Would fully and happily recommend to others.

Beautiful Calabay Parc is a prestigious development of executive homes ideally located close to Disney on Highway 27, only 2.5 miles from Exit 58 on I-4. It is quiet and well-maintained and is situated in a conservation area. The wide streets and variety of architectural styles make this a perfect location for all the family to enjoy a relaxing holiday whilst still being within easy reach of all the major attractions. It is approximately 12 minutes drive to Disney World main gate, 35 minutes to Legoland and 25 minutes to Sea World and Universal Studios, 35 minutes to Orlando International Airport.

The Atlantic coast can be reached in a little over a hour, where you will be able to visit the Kennedy Space Center, Florida’s oldest town of Saint Augustine and the world-famous Daytona Beach. The powder white sands of the beautiful Gulf coast to the west are just over an hour away. There are many excellent golf courses within easy reach – 5-minute drive to the 36-hole championship course at Champions Gate, and easy access to the three signature courses at Reunion Resort. The multi-million dollar retail center at Posner Park is only 3 miles away – providing lots more shopping, dining, cinemas, etc., close to the villa.

Public Supermarket, gas station, and Wal-Mart Supercenter nearby.
