About Claire Hodgson

We are The Hodgson's, Claire and John. We have twins who are 12 years old. We love to travel and our favourite family holiday destination has always been Florida. We love it so much we married there.

Claire Hodgson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Claire Hodgson chose Davenport

As we love Florida so much its the perfect place for us to have a holiday home. We have been looking for our piece of Florida for many years and eventually we found the fabulous resort of Watersong. Our home is a haven away from busy days at the Parks and has great access to reach the beautiful beaches in Florida.

What makes this villa unique

When looking for our home it was important to us that we had no rear neighbours and a view over conservation. Our location in Watersong has all that and more. The extended pool/spa deck is fabulous for outdoor eating, catching the Florida sun and spotting wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I have just returned from our holiday in Florida. It was our 7th visit, but our 1st stay in this area and villa.



The photos displayed on this site are exactly what you will see at the villa. On arrival, we were really impressed and knew straight away we would have a fantastic holiday.



When we discovered the villa and made contact with the owner, I knew immediately this was the villa for us. From start to finish, the communication was impeccable.



Location - The Villa is, as the description states, in the lovely area of Champions Gate. It’s quiet and has the added security of the gates at the entrance. The location is fantastic; it’s the best villa we have ever stayed at for access to the I-4. (In our opinion, better than, Legacy Park, Highlands Reserve & Emerald Island) The 192, which is the busiest in the area for restaurants, is also only a short drive away on a nice quiet road. Publix supermarket, gas stations, fast food outlets and café’s are also only a short distance away too.



The Villa - The villa & outside space is immaculate, well maintained and really homely.



On arrival we were greeted to a lovely goodie box full of chocolates, crisps, wine, beer and sweets and note wishing us a great stay at the villa. This was a great personal touch as it was both my mum and husband’s birthday while we were there & the note wished them both a happy birthday.



Upstairs - Ample bath towels and bed linen. Lovely spacious loft space, which provided entertainment for everyone. Every bedroom has it’s own bathroom, which was fantastic when 8 of us stayed. Excellent storage in each room for clothes and cases. Most bathrooms have a hair dryer; all bedrooms had ample hangers & drawer space. The cupboards are well stocked with clean bed linen and bathroom towels.



Downstairs – 2 x eating areas (as well as outside), 2 x living areas. The main bedroom suite located off the lounge is stunning. The kitchen is huge and contains everything you need, toaster, kettle, coffee machine, microwave, cooker, huge fridge freezer & dishwasher. The many cupboards are well stocked with new pots & pans, cooking equipment, utensils, mugs, glasses, plates & bowls (for inside & out). Dishcloths and tea towels are also provided.



Wifi at the villa is excellent.



We had a great stay at the villa and would stay here again & recommend to our family and friends without a shadow of a doubt.

Beautiful Home With Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Watersong for 6 years and this was one of the nicest homes. It was very private being at the end of the road. We enjoyed all the wildlife in the area. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed and the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with.

Dream Haven - Wonderful family rental!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us! All the comforts at a home away from your own. This rental is a must for families......it is truly a kids dream! Our favorite spots at your home were the pool/hot tub, outside deck area, and the loft area. Plenty of air hockey games were held......with our daughter reigning as the champion at the end of our stay! While enjoying the pool/hot tub we had visits from the birds and their babies and the turtle. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the items we needed to prepare meals. It was wonderful being able to use the washer/dryer combo. We could pack less and just throw a load of laundry in as we needed to. We were 30 minutes away from Universal Studios and SeaWorld. We also took a day trip to Clearwater. Claire was wonderful to work with. Very quick to respond and extremely helpful! We would definitely recommend this rental to other families.

AMAZING VACATION RENTAL!!

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay in this cozy home! It was myself, husband, 2 young daughters (ages 5 and 8), and my mom for the duration of the stay, but we also had friends (a family of 5) join us for the first few days. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations! All the adults got their own private en suites (at opposite ends of the home - so very private!), and the children (ages 5-10) LOVED all the games (pool, foosball, air hockey, darts) and the pool and hot tub!! On the first night, as I was putting my oldest daughter to bed, she whispered, "Mommy, this is paradise." Needless to say, they didn't want to leave at the end of the week. Everything was very easy, all the details were clearly communicated, and we found almost everything we needed. We did find that we needed to stock some of the basics: extra paper towels, trash bags, and the dish-washing detergent and toilet paper were running low, but we stretched things out. This is not a complaint, so much as something to note. For folks used to timeshares, these things are generally provided, so we just weren't prepared. We loved that there was a washing machine and dryer, because it meant we could pack less and come home with clean laundry. The home is on a cul-de-sac, which I hadn't realized at the time of booking, but which was wonderful for privacy. If we come back to Orlando, we will definitely stay here again and bring the kids' scooters to ride around the cul-de-sac. The wildlife preserve in the backyard was also a wonderful perk. We had large birds visit us everyday, and my mom spotted an armadillo one afternoon as she was out by the pool. We rented the grill for a little extra and had the pool heated. Even in 60 degrees at night the kids were able to swim and be comfortable, so it was worth the extra cost. (We're from Boston!). There were plenty of spaces for people to do their own thing -essentially 3 living spaces outside of the bedrooms (two TV rooms and a LR/DR combo that is more formal and nice for quiet reading and such). It was too much house just for the 5 of us, but it makes such a wonderful space for two or more families, and honestly, we'd book again just for the location and outdoor space. We were 25 minutes from DisneyWorld, and it was really nice transition time in the morning and evenings on the ride there and back. It was nice to have wireless internet; we kept thinking we should have brought our Roku stick, but we weren't really there for TVs! Great home!!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a group event and had a mix of adults and children staying in the home. The house was fantastic. It had everything we needed to be comfortable for our week in Orlando - plenty of towels, comfortable beds and everything we needed to cook at home after a long day at the park. The house is totally convenient to all of the parks, maybe 15 minutes maximum. The pool was awesome and we particularly enjoyed being at the end of the cul de sac. The air hockey table got a lot of use- and we liked that it was upstairs, and not in the garage as is typical with most of the rental homes in Watering.

In all we had a great experience and would definitely rent this house again!

Very agreable stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as shown in the pictures. The house is spacious, safe and secure located in a gated community and I would recommend to all! The community itself was nice, quit and it was easy to get to all theme parks.( very close by the I4 but not to close so there was no disturbing traffic noise ) We also loved the well heated pool as the nights could be pretty cool during the winterperiod. But no problem at all with the heatingdevice of the pool. Best of all, the owners were great to work with. They were very accommodating, correct and very quick to respond.

Also the property mgt. was very allert to counter any small issues.

Definitely a place to remember in the future when revisiting Florida

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious. The community was nice, and was easy to get to all theme parks (traffic was not bad at all). Lots of king sized beds and bathrooms. The pool was great after a long day at the parks. Great price and value compared to other houses in the area. Best of all, the owners were great to work with. They were very accommodating and quick to respond. It was a great choice for our family vacation, and would choose it again if we ever return to Orlando.
