Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental
A good- sized swimming pool and spa overlook a landscaped garden. Enjoy eating out both day and evening beside the pool. Underwater lighting in both the pool and spa as well as solar lights in the garden really encourage eating in the open air.
The villa is in an ideal location only 3/4 mile from the 192 with its endless range of restaurants and shops.
The villa is a much loved holiday home and we as owners visit 3 times a year. Photographs are regularly updated to reflect changes and give an accurate picture of the villa and garden The additional landscaping has been completed by me,
(hobby is landscape gardening) in the last 2 years.
Ideal for two families on holiday together, it is fully air-conditioned with a large open plan living/dining room with cable television (42in LCD). The living area offers extra sleeping accommodation with a double sofa bed.
The spacious, fully fitted kitchen with large breakfast bar has all modern appliances incuding waste disposal and there is a large utility room with washing machine, tumbledryer and ironing board. There is a separate toilet with direct pool access downstairs. (An excellent facility for children)
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All the bedrooms have luxury carpeting, light furnishings and DVDs.The king size bedroom with walk -in dressing room has en suite facilities with twin vanity units, large corner bath and separate shower. The queen size bedroom also has a large en-suite bathroom also with twin vanity units. There are also 2 spacious, twin bedrooms ( ideal for children or adults)
There is also a games room, making use of a huge garage space. It offers darts, table tennis, foosball and air hockey. (an excellent facility for children)
Overlooking the landscaped rear garden, the private pool and spa is set in a decked area - alarmed for child safety and is a lovely area to relax on the sun loungers in the Florida sunshine. A 10 foot high wall, separating the garden from a quiet minor road, means that the villa is not overlooked from the rear. The back bedrooms of the villa have a lovely open outlook towards the conservation area. Hot air balloon trips can frequently be observed at dawn as they float over the villa to land in nearby fields. An amazing spectacle.
The West Gate to Disney is just over 3 miles away , giving quick, easy access to Disney World. You can be there in 7 minutes!
A huge Walmart, 2 Publix stores and a new Target superstore all lie within 2 miles of the villa.The beautiful Tuscany and Calabria development of villas, set in a quiet development, surrounded by conservation areas and natural wetlands, is ideally situated, only minutes from the new West Gate to the Disney theme and water parks.
Downtown Disney offers a wonderful shopping and dining experience.
Universal Studios now offers the amazing world of Harry Potter; only 20 minutes drive from the villa.
Sea World, only 15 minutes from the villa, offers spectacular shows. The nearby Aquatica water park is a must for all water lovers.
RECREATION - This is an all year round holiday destination with lovely warm sunshine and blue skies even in December and January. There really is something for everyone to enjoy. Lakes and rivers offer endless opportunities for swimming, boating, waterskiing and fishing.There are also numerous fitness trails and tennis courts.
SHOPPING - Highway 192 and 27 as well as Interstate 4 are just minutes from the villa, offering a huge range of shopping malls, and factory outlets. This really is a shopper's paradise!
DINING - Really too many to mention. Many restaurants close by , offering international cuisine.
NIGHTLIFE - Countless bars, pubs, dance clubs and themed evenings on Highway 192.
ENTERTAINMENT - the theme parks of course but also world famous theatre, ballet and orchestras. Also many themed nights such as The Arabian Nights.
DAYS OUT - my favourites. If you would like to explore more than theme parks, visit one or more of the following:
Lake Toho, only 1/2 an hour away, has many boat trips offering wildlife tours.
Celebration, a purpose built, architect designed town, situated on a number of lakes, only 20 minutes away, offers a great day out on bicycles on marked cycle routes .A bird lover's paradise! You don't even need binoculars. You will probably see an alligator.
Bok Tower Gardens - an easy drive along Highway 27. A must for all garden lovers. Camellias in January!
Cocoa Beach with its miles of sand and great surf is only 1 hours drive away. Great for watching the pelicans and thousands of other seabirds. Remember to visit Ron Jon's - a teenager's and surfer's paradise. Also walk northwards and watch submarines and big ships using the channel. Great for fishing from the breakwater.
The Kennedy Space Centre is also just over an hour's drive; a must for all ages.
Port Carnaveral with its luxury cruise ships is also worth a visit, when over on the east coast.
The white sand, west coast beaches such as St Petersburg and Clearwater are just under 2 hours away. Spend hours just watching the dolphins and picking up shells.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
"Fantastic villa, Fantastic location and Fantastic service"
We spent ages deciding between staying in Kissimmee (East) or Davenport (West) until we seen the Disney Davella. Davenport seems to be the new up and coming area with new developments under construction nearby which in no way caused any disturbance night or day. The villa it's self is only 3 years old and is in the lovely new development of Calabria. The villa is massive and has a nice front/back garden, pool and SPA and washing/dryer machines. The I192 is a few minutes away where the is an abundance of restaurants (try Twistee Treat next to the RaceTrack garage), Disney can be reached in 10 mins and Universal Studios in 20/25 mins.
The booking process was easy, Ella the owner dropped a few courtesy emails which was a nice touch.
In all a fantastic holiday and would recommend a stay here.

"Excellent - cant wait to go back"
The villa was very easy to find and in an excellent location. Roughly a 5 minute drive to shops and restaurants and 20 minutes to most of the parks. The villa itself is very modern and in excellent coâ€¦ More
Thank you for your very positive feedback. Disney Davella is certainly in an excellent location. Looking forward to welcoming you back next year.

"Beautiful spacious villa that exceeded our expectations."
The villa was easy to find and close to all the attractions, 20 minutes drive approx.
It was spacious and very clean,kids loved the games room and the pool, however it was a bit too cold in april to go in for long especially after sun has gone down.
This was a great villa and we really enjoyed our stay,would recommend a visit.
Pleased to hear that you had a good holiday and enjoyed the villa. The weather was certainly very mixed when you were out there. Usually by April the pool is pleasant to go into but this year there were some quite low temperatures, especially overnight.

â€śGreat clean villa to stay in, would stay there again.â€ť
A lovely villa and above all clean.Close to all the parks I coulnt have stayed in a better place. Not far from the 192 which is the main highway to all the Disney+Universal parks. The added bonus was having a pool in the villa for days when we simply wanted to relax.
Delighted to hear that you and your family had such a great holiday and really enjoyed Disney Davella. The villa is certainly in an excellent location for Disney World and the other theme parks. We would love to have you and your family visit again.

â€śExcellent house ! perfect location for the everything.â€ť
We had a fantastic holiday in Orlando. The Davella house was everything we hoped it would be and more. It was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. It was in a great location for all the Disney parks, restaurants and shopping outlets. We would recommend this house to anyone. Our 12 year old son loved the pool. The owner of the house was extremely helpful with any information we needed.

Our group of 4 consisting of 3 generations, myself, partner, our infant son and his maternal grandmother, have just returned after an extended 24 night stay in this fabulous 4 bedroomed villa.
All the other reviews are perfectly accurate when they describe the size and quality of this lovely holiday home. The facilities are excellent, from the screened pool and spa, the sheer amount of towels available and the essential washer and dryer to keep everything fresh and clean. The latter was especially useful as we thankfully did not overpack. I mustn't forget to mention the included wifi and the 42" flatscreen tv and cable tv which were great to use to relax after a hard day walking around the many, many themeparks, whether Disney, Universal or elsewhere. The american style/size fridge with inbuilt icemaker is also worth an honourable mention.
It's already been mentioned many times how handy the location is for Disney and Universal but this is also true for many of the Orlando attractions. What was a pleasant surprise for me is that not only were the East coast beaches, Cocoa etc., in relatively easy reach, approx 90 minutes drive, the beaches on the West, Gulf Coast, were also reachable in a similar timeframe. We visited Cocoa beach on the east and also went to Clearwater and St. Pete's on the West.
As this was my third time in Florida I'm not exactly new to the experience but this was my first villa/non hotel experience and I fear I've been spoilt forever. I'd certainly book this accommodation again and will be fearful that if I go elsewhere it may not be as good as Davella. I feel homesick for this place.
Special mention for the communication skills of Ella and David. Flawless. Thank you.

BOOK IT.......NOW............SAVE YOUR TIME!!!
You spend lots of hours looking for a house that is suitable in every way, does it have this, does it have that, well this house has it all. Perfect peaceful location, so easy to find, not so far from attractions and a great Walmart supermarket just up the road.
Davella itself is a huge two level home. There was ample room for my family of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 9 and 11, but could very easily house 2 families.
The owner Ella, was very helpful from the beginning right up until 2 days of departure, where i received a wonderful, helpful, courtesy call.
Not only would i have loved to transport this beautiful house back with me to London (wishfull thinking) i would have taken the super kingsize bed with me also. It was one of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in and was not looking forward to be back in my own!.
My children commented on how wonderful their rooms were, comfortable beds with lots of room to play and a lovely swimming pool where they spent most of their time.
As a family this was our 3rd visit to Orlando staying in Kissimmee in a house. So far this has been the best house we have stayed in and we will definitely be returning back in the not too distant future.

â€śFantastic Villa, Fantastic location..book it!â€ť
We travel to the Orlando area a lot and this is one of the nicest villa's we have stayed in. It was beautifully appointed and had ever item you could ever think of and probably some you couldn't... from ponchos for the afternoon showers to a handheld fan for keeping cool.
The villa was spotlessly clean which is always a big thing for me when renting villas.
The location of the villa is fantastic we could be in Disney World door to door in 12 minutes.There is a lot of great restaurants within a short drive and a new Logans Roadhouse opened whilst we were there which is highly reccomended.
We really enjoyed chilling by the pool whilst the kiddies swam, and swam and swam. The pool and area was also very clean and tidy.
I would not hesitate to re-book this villa..the owner was very helpful and answered any emails immediately.
Book it you will not regret it!

â€śFANTASTIC VILLA, VERY CLOSE TO DISNEY!â€ť
The villa was fantastic, bedroooms were very spacious, and all of the house was very well furnished.
The pool area was absolutely superb, with a lovely large pool and spa, only minor complaint, and it is minor! was that there were only two sun loungers and there were four of us, it meant that we had to share on our relaxing days.
The owner Ella was also fantastic, she was really great at getting back to us with any queries we had, and also excellent giving us loads of local information before we travelled out. (thanks Ella)
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, to anyone thinking of booking, go ahead, you won't be disappointed.
We hope to go back to Orlando in the future, and will be booking this villa again.
Really delighted that all our guests are loving Disney Davella, the pool, spa and garden in this beautiful development of villas.
We are now adding extra sun loungers to our outdoor facilities and will be extending the landscaping as well on our next visit so that everyone can enjoy even more this lovely environment in the Florida sunshine.
5 Jul 2012
The villa was perfect, not too far from all the parks and great shopping. Everything that we needed was there, plenty off towels for all the morning swims and easy to use washing machine and dryer to keep them clean. We had such a great time i would have no problem in recommending this property. We had 8 in our group 4 adults, 4 kids and we had loads of space. It was really clean and well kept. Well done Ella & Dave keep up the good work.

â€śLovely lovely lovelyâ€ť
We came to Florida in June and booked Davella looking for a good base for the parks and somewhere nice to relax on our days off.... this villa totally exceeded our expectations! It was super clean, open, airy and just a lovely place to be. The pool and garden were perfect for a good sunbathe, and location wise was a close drive to the parks. The service we received prior to our trip was also great, any emails or questions we had were replied to really promptly. The only downside was that we had to leave... we would definitely stay at Davella again.

â€śYou couldn't get any closer to Disney... unless you camped in the car parkâ€ť
This villa is perfectly located for all that Orlando has to offer. It was a 10 minute drive from the front door to the gate of Magic Kingdom. The villa had the ideal combination of a quite location, but still being close to all the parks, local restaurants and shopping.
The villa itself is clean, well equipped and spacious. It was nice to have both a garden and a pool.
We had such a good time that we've booked again for next year and have also booked this villa again.

â€śPractically Perfect In Every Way!â€ť
What an amazing spacious family villa in a peaceful location.
Upon arrival we immediately felt at home. The rooms are large and airy with plenty of storage. The pool is inviting, the games room is fun and the villa is well equipped and cleaned and maintained to a high standard.
Located off the 192 it is a short drive to supermarkets and some amazing restaurants. Only 15 minutes away from the Disney parks it is ideal.
The perfect Disney vacation home that we will be using again.

â€śHome from Home.â€ť
With excellent guide notes from travelling from the airport on arrival and upon entering the Villa our holiday started off brilliantly. Davella is very homely and nicely decorated/furnished and plenty of space if you have a family.
The area around the villa is semi rural but only a short distance to the attractions which we found ideal, as some days we enjoyed the peaceful garden and swimming pool.
Ella Morris the owner was very helpfull and having contacted several villas to book our holiday, she was the best and dealt with any queries etc very promptly.
We have been in touch with her several times since coming back to england, and we are looking forward to booking with Ella again next year. This was not our first visit to Florida but staying at Davella was the best time we've had there and we wouldnt hesitate in recommending this villa.

What a beautiful villa, incredibly spacious and beautifully maintained both inside and out. Loved my quiet walks in the morning round the peaceful small lakes. An incredible amount of bird life including 2 visiting cranes in the back garden. Margaret Young, Buckinghamshire, England
An amazing villa in a beautiful location, so close to Disney. This is a home from home experience. Loved the pool area with jacuzzi, lovely back garden. Would go back. Elaine Maclean, Scotland
We had a brilliant time in Florida and we were really happy with your Villa. The Villa was immaculately clean and tidy. As soon as we arrived and unpacked we felt immediately at home - I myself didn't want to go home, ha ha!
I'd like to thank you for providing such a wonderful place for us to stay. David Slack and family, February 2011
