About the home
Cancellation - June ONLY £425. Completed in 2008, this spacious, luxury property, with beautiful Italian themed fixtures and fittings is set in an exclusive development (Tuscany/Calabria) of small lakes, surrounded by conservation area and natural wetlands.
The villa with spa, pool (length 27 feet ) and garden is in an ideal location only 3/4 mile from the 192 with its endless range of restaurants and shops.
Just 4 miles from the new West Disney gate. Be in DISNEY WORLD in literally a couple of minutes.
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 my wife (whose hobby is landscape gardening) in the last 3 years. Garden has flowering oleanders, azaleas, camellias, mandevillas and a variety of perennials, grasses and palms.
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 Florida / Orlando Disney Area region
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.
Walt Disney World offers 4 theme parks and 2 water parks. Our agent in Kissimmee can provide tickets.
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.
The Kissimmee / Westside area
The villa is set in a peaceful conservation area ideal for walking, jogging or cycling. Yet within only minutes drive there are 2 large Publix food stores, a huge Walmart and Wallgreens drive-in chemist. There are over a dozen top class golf courses nearby. Only minutes from the villa, Highway 192 gives easy access to Kissimmee, both the old and new town, offering international cuisine. Great shopping, dinner shows, legend- designed golf courses, local winery, world class fishing, hot air balloon rides, helicopter trips and boat trips on Lake Toho are just some of the attractions in the area.
Kissimmee also hosts many special events throughout the year.
Alligators, amazing wildlife (armadillos and raccoons) and incredible birds(Sandhill cranes) can be seen nearby (even in the garden) as this area is the headwater of the Everglades.

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.

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.
