Description

This Excellent Vacation Home is of the Excellent Superior category. The villa is situated on a quiet corner lot (with pond view) in the Bridgewater subdivision of Davenport, alongside the Ronald Reagan Park road (Co Rd 54). The location is about 4 miles south from the intersection of the 429 (Toll road) with the Interstate 4 (I4). It is therefore only minutes to the Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World theme parks plus some of the world’s best golf courses. There are supermarkets and dining nearby. This villa offers free high-speed internet (cable and Wi-Fi) plus free local and long-distance calling within the United States and Canada.

The villa has been furnished to a very good standard. When entering the villa you step from the hallway into the spacious family room, with music center, flat screen TV with digital cable and DVD player. The formal dining area is right next to this family room. On your left hand you will find the well-equipped, semi-open kitchen. Next to the kitchen you will find a breakfast nook. The one downstairs bedroom is found on the right side of the villa, accessible from the hallway. This bedroom has a Queen bed, cable TV and a closet. The bathroom right next to it has a vanity, shower and toilet.

Once upstairs, you will find the second bedroom with 2 Single beds and a closet. Next to this you will find the bathroom with one vanity, shower and toilet. This bathroom is shared with the next bedroom that also has 2 Single beds and a closet, plus cable TV. Last but not least, you will find to the right the Master bedroom with King bed, large walk-in closet and the en suite bathroom with dual vanity, large garden tub, walk-in shower and toilet. This room too has cable TV and a 32" flat screen TV.

The villa is fully air conditioned for those very hot days and has reverse air for the few colder days.

The semi-open kitchen is well fitted. It includes a full size oven, counter top microwave, large fridge-freezer with ice-maker, waste disposal unit and dishwasher. There is also a full range of electrical appliances and utensils – pretty much everything you could want in your home away from home.

Near the dining area, through the sliding patio doors, you have access to the inviting pool area, with a great view onto the large pond which is lined with tall trees behind it. Pool deck chairs allow for late night, pool side relaxing. The pool & hot tub can be heated separately, which is optional, at an extra cost.

There is also a washing machine and dryer in the villa, which are located in the laundry closet next to the breakfast area. Iron and ironing board are present too.

For your vacation planning convenience, please note these travel distances to some of the many popular sites in the area:

Walt Disney World : 10 miles (14 minutes)
Universal Studios Orlando : 21 miles (37 minutes)
SeaWorld : 17 miles (29 minutes)

We had a very nice vacation at the parks. The house was OK, we paid a little extra and loved the heated pool. But this house did need some maintenance work, and a could use a very good cleaning. Ants were a real nuisance. Got into our cereal boxes, and covered Thanksgiving pies! Construction waist and old furniture left in garage. Several ligts were out, and a couple outlets didn't work. We've stayed in many rentals homes, and have never consider ourselves to be very picky people. It was a good home but the ants and unclean areas were enough to make us check out a day early and head home to NC.
Can't say I would use this home again, but the company staff were very friendly, and did what they could. Also we need to remember that a hurricane blew threw this area about 6 weeks earlier, so they may be trying to catch up on all the needed repairs in all the homes.

I do not have TV or Wi-Fi for two whole days the Jacuzzi with Col

When I arrived it was very easy to find. Entry to the home was easy with the instructions that were provided. There were a couple minor issues and I called the office and they were taken care of within 24 hrs. All one has to d is read the provided binder of information provided and it spells it out from check-in to check-out. The property was well maintained and the home in great shape. I would recommend this company to any and all my friends. As a matter of fact I can't wait to visit Fl again and use this company to provide me housing. Chris was friendly and very eager to help with any issue I found.(only two minor ones). Highly recommend staying in this home and enjoying the great pool and hot-tub.

House was nice, great location to the parks. Pool was nice. We are a family who cooks a lot instead of eating out so the kitchen was a bit rough for us (no grill, no mixing bowls) but we made due with what was there. One day the microwave stopped working and we called the rental office, they came out right away and took care of the problem.

Hi Kathleen, thank you for a great review. Next time please give us a call should you be unable to find anything in the house so we can solve that right away & a gas grill can be rented.

The villa was in a good location on a nice estate, well placed for easy travel to the Parks and shopping Malls via the I4. The villa is a nice size and comfortable with all amenities needed for a vacation. We were pleased with the pool /lanai area which overlooked a lake where we'd occasionally sight a gator, turtles over the other side of the lake and we'd be visited by cute sand cranes which would be seen regularly around the estate. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of bedding and towels. The management team were very helpful prior to our arrival, answering all queries promptly and fully. A management team member called round prior to hurricane Matthew to make sure that we were aware of it and had taken correct precautions.

Very bad and non secure one guy from the company staff has a code to enter the villa and stole 500 usd from my bed room
Manager response on 2016-08-31 - Response from Excellent Vacation Homes
Dear Ahmad, thank you for your review. We appreciate your opinion and to some extend your score for property cleanliness and location, as we agree this is a wonderful home, very popular as such, with many repeat guests each year. We feel it is not fair you claiming an employee of ours would have stolen money from your vacation home, as we have proof that this is incorrect. You called us to say that you had money hidden in your vacation home and that it was gone upon your return to the home later that day. We have immediately assisted you, recommended to reach out to the local Sheriff department, they came by to take your report, to inspect the property and they established that there was no sign of break in. We have proof from the activity log for our electronic door lock system that nobody came in through the front door during the hours you were absent. We provided that information to the Sheriff department too. Their conclusion: if there was money stolen from the property, it would have happened because a window, door or garage door was left unlocked when you left. When you responded that had not been the case, it was concluded someone from your party must have misplaced the money accidentally, and it would hopefully turn up sooner than later. This property has fully functioning locks on all doors and windows, and a 24/7 monitored alarm system (which you choose not to use during your absence that day), and we feel is therefore very secure. We regret that you feel different about this and hope you were able to retrieve the missing money at a later time, and would like to thank you again for staying with us.

Our golf foursome enjoyed a delightful four night stay here. Comfortable, clean and close to good golf courses esp. Providence and Celebration. Helpful to have free telephone calls to Canada. Pleasant community to walk around in, short drive to Publix
and Applebees. Wildlife comes free (the alligator likes to sun himself on the far side of the pond).

Johan thank you for an excellent review! I'm glad you enjoyed this beautiful home with a private pool. As far as the alligator in the pond, nothing to worry about with the pool enclosure (pool area is completely screened in) keeping all bugs and other FL wildlife out. See you next time!

Overall this was great. A few small issues, but overall it was a great experience. I would have liked to be asked if I wanted the pool heated in advanced, not knowing it was optional. Also, I would have liked to park inside the garage (but this may not be standard so it's OK). The front door keypad was very hard to use, but not a huge issue either. Other than that, this BLEW away any hotel room. The privacy and multiple rooms made us feel like it was "our" home. We will certainly use again!

We rented this home for 1 month March 2015 and received several guests.We were all very happy with the location of the property-close to Disney/Universal and the Orlando Int'l airport.The property was clean and in good working order.The location was ideal for us, as we like nature.The pond and woods next door gave us lots of wildlife to look at and enjoy.Most of all the management, Kris, was superb.They are attentive to our needs and acted immediately on the few requests we had.The neighborhood is friendly and clean.

Nice place. Only complaints were the frying pans were terrible, and the Cooking stove only had two burners working. Probably would have used the pool but $196 for one week was a bit pricey.

This was the first time renting a vacation home And we were very pleased. The only reason it didn't get all 5 stars on all things is that the master bed upstairs was very hard and the pillows were like bags of cement. ( very hard) When we need help a quick phone call and all was solved. Pool was awesome a little cold but nice anyways. Wish I looked over some of the paper work better to have the hot tub water hot. Would have been nice after both days at the parks If we ever visit back in the Orlando area we will rent agian. Thanks for the great stay.

The house was really nice and we had a pleasant stay. Just wasn't clean. We could see clearly the the cleaning job was not done. Just some make up.
Tre property managment company was very professional and able to help in case of any problem.
About the house just the kitchen could be a little more equiped.
Overall we did have a plesant time .
Definitly I would recomend and come back .

We stayed at Bridgewater Retreat in March / April 2014. It was in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, great views of the alligator sunbathing in the lake across from the pool. A great location for the Disney parks too, being approx 10 / 15 mins door to door.
The property was in great repair and condition and had everything you needed to feel at home for your stay. Will definitely recommend this to friends and might even make a return visit soon.

My wife and I are both retired and decided to visit Florida once again to see the areas we had not seen when we visited with our children some years ago.
We found being located 2 miles or so from the I4 (exit 58)at Davenport south west of Orlando was very convenient for our purpose.
Our estate was very quiet and our vacation home was ideal for a relaxing vacation. I feel this property would suit both older visitors and young families as it is within easy reach of the many attractions Orlando has to offer and is easy to find just 30 minutes or so from the airport.
I feel the property itself has all that is required to make your stay comfortable whether eating at home with 2 Publix supermarkets for supplies within 2 miles or at a number of good local restaurants within 3 or 4 miles.
We very pleased with our location and we would recommend this property to our friends should they want to visit this area of Florida.

Dear Howard, a big THANK YOU for your review and feedback. Glad we were able to have the TV sound fixed through the cable company the very next morning. Look forward to welcoming you and your friends again in the future!

Property location was good, accommodations were good, cleanliness was below average, roaches showed up, A/C leaked badly in the garage leaving puddles, unpleasant odors were present.
Manager response on 2012-09-30 - Response from Excellent Vacation Homes
Dear Robert, thank you very much for your feedback. We felt sorry that you had to find that roach in the kitchen but do hope you understand that finding a rocach does not necessarily mean the house is not clean. In Florida climate even the cleanest of homes may still show a roach every now and then. The leaking AC was fixed shortly after your departure which took care of the unpleasant smell there too. The AC's drain pipe had simply come loose due to which water dripped onto the supporting cabinet and onto the floor. We sure hope we may welcome you back next year!

The house is in a very nice location across from pond. It could have been cleaner, carpet was very dirty and the fans and vents had huge amounts of dust on them. We noticed that the door seal on bottom of front foor showed a gap allowing bugs in. Other than items mentioned, house was in good shape had all the amenities and was comfortable.
Manager response on 2013-04-19 - Response from Excellent Vacation Homes
Dear Linda, thank you very much for your reviewe and comments. We are glad you enjoyed the house and all its amenities. We have taken your feedback to heart and attended to the ceiling fans (it's amazing how quickly these can collect dust at times; the house went through a thorough deep clean only 1 month prior but depending on use the fans collect new dust quicker than we thought. As the cleaners are not allowed onto a ladder when in the house alone, we have added this item to our frequent technical inspection rounds to make sure they are kept clean. We have also replaced the front door bottom seal; thank you for bringing that to our attention. It was a small gap but indeed big enough for some bugs. rather keep those out ;-). Tha carpet is steam cleaned regularly; the spots you are referring to are really small discolorations from previous treatments on actual stains. So all clean, but discolored. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Luv this house!

Had a great time. House had everything we needed and the pool was very warm. Only gave the home a 4 star for condition because I think bathroom flooring could use replacement (torn on the sides). Thanks for letting us stay in your great house!
Manager response on 2012-11-29 - Response from Excellent Vacation Homes
Hi Lisa, thank you for a great review. Point taken on the bathroom flooring; the owner had already agreed to have this work done, was just a matter of finding the 2-3 days of availability of the house to actually perform the work needed (floor needs to dry afterwards); will be done next week! Thank you again and we would love to see you again in the future!

Dear Wayne, thank you for an excellent review. Sorry to hear about the pool heat; for each vacation home featuring a pool heater we ask our guests staying between October 1 and April 1 (recommended season for pool heat) if they would like the pool heated (optional, at an extra charge). This question must have not reached you, for which we do apologize. We are glad that other than this you really enjoyed this wonderful home and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Our AC stopped working during a week of 90 + degree weather. Called Excellent Vacation Homes and left a message. Received a call back within 5 minutes and the repair man was there within the hour. We didn't have to wait for the repair man so we went to the parks. Came home to a COOL house. :) I would definitely rent from Excellent Vacation Homes again!!!!
