“Everything we expected (and more)!”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

After a long day travelling, we arrived at Disney Davella. We were immediately impressed by the location (a quiet area with a mix of residential & holiday lets), but our expectations were exceeded upon entry to the villa.

The air con was already set to the perfect temperature as we explored the villa - high ceilings give an even greater perception of space for what are already large rooms; the master bedroom was enormous, with a large en-suite attached. The other double, along with the 2 twin rooms, also had ample space. Downstairs, a good sized, open plan kitchen/lounge area provided a great living space.

Outside, the pool & hot tub area was excellent, with the East facing pool getting the sun throughout the day until around 3:30pm.

Overall, we had an awesome time in Orlando, thanks in no small way to this lovely villa which acted as the perfect base for everywhere we visited.

Davella is certainly a very spacious villa and is in a beautiful quiet location yet close to everything. Love visiting myself - something I do on a regular basis.
Would love to welcome you back.

“Beautiful villa with best kept garden”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Firstly a bit of background - I visit Florida at least once a year and always stay in a villa, my favourite location is the Four Corners area (from Formosa Gardens area towards US27). I've stayed all around this area and also at different communities down the US27. I'm a bit OCD when it comes to booking a villa and carry out lots of research before booking, there are certain things I look for from important features (eg. two bedrooms with en-suite) to less important (decent sofas and big TV in the lounge). After sorting through lots of options, this villa met most of my requirements and I booked it.

The owner, Ella, was great to deal with right from the first minutes of booking all the way through to the return of the deposit (which was done very quickly after my return), plus booking through the TripAdvisor system gave me additional protection and allowed me to use PayPal which meant I could put it on my card offering further protection over bookings which have to be paid by cheque / bank transfer.

The villa itself is located in the Tuscany / Calabria community (depending on which entrance you use) which is on Westside Boulevard. This is an area that continues to expand with new communities being developed along it. It's very easy to get to, once your on the 192 you simply head east towards the US27 and when you get to a Racetrac / Twistee Treat on the left and Wawa on the right you take a left turn and then drive down towards Calabria on the right.

One reason I like this area is because of the access to supermarkets, restaurants and the theme parks. For groceries you've got Super Target and Walmart within just a few minutes, plus there are lots of restaurant options at Rolling Oaks (next to Super Target). The Twistee Treat at the top of Westside Blvd is both a blessing and a curse - blessing because it's delicious, a curse because it's just to easy to pop in on the way back to the villa, something we did too many times!

On to the villa itself, one of the first things you'll notice are the gardens. Most rental villas don't put much effort into the garden around the villa, there's usually grass and maybe a bush or two. But this villa was surrounded by beautiful plants, shrubs and flowers. The villa is modern and well kept, the front door opens to the lounge / kitchen area which occupies most of the ground floor along with a toilet, laundry and the garage/games room. The lounge has a huge TV and the normal cable channels, a nice bonus was that the TV also had a Netflix account on it so if there was nothing on TV (or we grew tired of the advert breaks every 10 seconds), then we could watch something from Netflix. There is a 3 and 2 seater sofa in the lounge and both were very comfortable.

The lounge also had patio doors that opened up to the pool and hottub/spa. There was also a table and chairs out on the patio around the pool so you could sit outside if you wanted - one thing to note here is that there is no lanai (a covered area which usually sticks out from the house) so it could get very hot and meant we didn't sit out as much as we have at other villas with the lanai.

Upstairs you'll find 4 large bedrooms, with the master being en-suite. The three other bedrooms shared a bathroom however there was also a door from bedroom number 2 directly into the bathroom (there were only two of us in the villa so that effectively made the bathroom an en-suite for bedroom 2 which worked OK for us).

There were plenty of towels for the two of us, if more were staying you'd need to wash the more regularly but that's the case at any villa. One thing I did miss was a hand towel - there weren't any in the villa so we had to use bath towels instead. If you use a flannel there weren't any of those provided either so take your own. Both very minor points but worth mentioning.

One final thing to mention is that the villa does back onto Westside Blvd and while this is a dual-carriage road it's a pretty quiet one so neither traffic noise (which I never noticed) or getting out of the estate were ever a problem while we were there.

The biggest measure for me on what I thought of the villa is whether I'd stay there again, I'm pretty fussy and it doesn't much to put me off somewhere, especially where there is so much choice available. I'm happy to say that I'd definitely stay here again, it's a great modern, well-kept villa in a location that's not too far from the attractions, shops and restaurants but far enough to be peaceful.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review on the villa, highlighting what it has to offer.
It is lovely to have someone who really enjoyed the garden. It has taken a couple of years to establish but now offers shade if you want it in the heat of the day and is my favourite place to sit.
Would love to welcome you back.

“STOP SEARCHING book this one!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

After weeks of trawling the internet I finally decided on Disney Davella. The villa is beautiful. It is located on a quiet street which has a nice mix of residential and private holiday lets which I thought made it feel really secure. The next positive is the size, its huge, all the bedrooms are really comfortable. The pool is a good size and the jacuzzi is so warm, perfect for reading whilst hubby enjoyed a beer at night with the kids soundly sleeping. The pool is a fabulous size with a shallow bit at one side which allowed my daughter to learn to swim for the first time! The pool is in shade from about 1430 onwards which at first I had reservations about but oh boy I am so glad that we could get some shade from the sun and this ment I didn't need to worry about the kids getting burned for the peak sun. However, on the one day I felt like some sun I sat in the garden whilst hubby and kids played at the pool so it has the best of both worlds. This villa is the only holiday rental that I have ever stayed at that I have never felt the need to give the worktops and cutlery etc a quick clean. The location is perfect, quiet, close to disney, restaurants, various supermarkets or you can even walk to dunkin doughnuts for breakfast or an amazing ice cream place for an afternoon treat. If your not just going to disney then the villa is also perfectly placed for visits to Tampa or Daytona. I could go on ....hope this helps with your decision. Ps the personal communication with the owner is an added bonus!

Thank you so much for highlighting what Davella has to offer.
It is lovely to get such positive feedback on the villa, pool, garden and area. I am looking forward to going back out to the villa myself in June and having a few of those ice creams that you mentioned.

Villa Davella is a beautifully maintained, spacious and well located property which reflects the close interest taken by the owners who visit regularly and maintain high standards throughout. It is in a quiet residential area while still within easy reach of all the Disney World attractions as well as many other places to visit. There are attractive small towns, lakes full of interesting wild life and walks nearby, and a lovely beach only just over an hours drive away. The house is comfortable and has plenty of room. It's well equipped and convenient supermarkets mean that it's easy to self cater as an option to eating out. The pool and jacuzzi are great and its lovely garden offers a peaceful respite from all the other local attractions. A lovely place for all ages to stay and enjoy the many and varied attractions of the area.
