About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Pool, Full Kitchen

We are now working with Evolve Vacation Rental for managing/marketing our listing.

Here is the link to our home using Evolve.


Quiet and safe area near to I4 just a few minutes from Disney parks and Orlando.

Recently renovated living room and front foyer. New flooring in kitchen, laundry, and all bathrooms. House includes faux bar with a wine refrigerator, for those evenings to relax. Screened in pool, stocked kitchen and comfortable family room. We even have enough room to put the game room inside the house! That itself is a bonus!!!

The home features FiOS TV with DVR and 50MB Internet access.

We believe is having a safe, enjoyable, and security vacation, so we use ADT central alarm monitoring. None of that imitation freebie security systems.

We chose this location for the home, because too many people come to Florida, wanting to visit Disney and other parks, but the crazy traffic getting to those places makes for long lines. We have a nice easy short cut, that let's you avoid as much of the lines as possible, and still get around. Highways in Florida can be crazy.....

Enjoy your vacations with your family in a great area of Florida, near restaurants, malls, groceries, golfing, movies, and shopping!! The list goes on and on! :P Everything you need is within a 15 minute drive.

You will be enjoying sunny and relaxing Florida with a great experience by vacationing in our home.

We also know that recent changes with VRBO may make it a little more challenging for those on a tight budget.

Our recommendation is simple: We always will try to offer the best value for the home, so always ask us for a personalized quote and let's work out a plan to ensure you have a great vacation at Cantwell's Paradise.

Why Wilma Santos-Cantwell chose Santa Cruz


Looking for a short term rental near Disney, everyone believes that Orlando is the place to look. In actuality, to due the overcrowding and increased traffic heading to the vacation spots, Davenport was a more ideal location. Quick 15 minute drive to Disney, growing and developing suburb of Davenport allows for easy access to the highways, but you not fighting with traffic of Route 4. Our property is in very quiet development, with a mixture of both owner occupied and short term rentals.

We truly are a diamond in the rough. Keep the 'secret spot' of Davenport to yourself. You won't be wrong for looking here!

What makes this house unique

We decided to buy the property, as it was a dream share our love of Disney and the surrounding areas. Too many people rent hotels for vacations. For less than the cost of a hotel, you have everything you need. Pool, Internet, fully stocked kitchen, with fruits. Cupboards with nonperishable items (coffee, sugar, iced tea mix, etc). Why do you need to rent a house and then still need to pay for small use items. Seems like a waste of money. We want people to see the value in renting our home and feeling comfortable. We put in new veneer floors in the living room, new ceramic tile in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.

We put in a faux bar with wine glasses and a wine refrigerator. How many other places can say that. Come enjoy our property and feel comfortable like it was your own!!!!!
