Vacation Rental Description
The Villa is on the peaceful, sought after, semi-residential sub-division of Grand Reserve, Davenport, off Ronald Reagan Parkway (CR 54), near Kissimmee and Orlando.
Grand Reserve is a lovely, secluded, conservation and wetlands development with upscale homes. Sit by the pool or go for a walk and you will see all sorts of animals and birds.
Golfers can tee-off at Greg Norman designed courses at Champions Gate only 5mins away or choose from many recommendations we have.
The Villa is less than 3 miles away from Interstate 4 and only a 10min drive to the magic at Walt Disney World Resort. The I4 junction numbers reflect their positioning along the road in miles, starting from Tampa in the west. Whenever you are using I4 to get any of the attractions, it is J58 that you will come on and off at.
The Villa provides easy access to WDW, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventures, Wet & Wild, Sea World and International Drive, all within a few minutes drive. Daytona Beach and the Kennedy Space Centre are approximately 75 minutes drive away. Tampa and Busch Gardens are approximately 60 minutes whilst the beaches of the Gulf Coast are approximately 90 minutes. You can easily get to WDW by driving North on I4 starting at junction 58 and coming off at the next junction, number 62, where World Drive begins.
Less than 10 mins you will find the 8 lane Highway 192 (aka Irlo Bronson Highway), which is a 15 mile road stretching West to East, full of entertainments, amusements, restaurants, shops, banks, gas stations and markets, something for everyone.
Hwy 192 has Mile Markers, starting with Marker 1 at the West end at the junction with US 27, and Marker 15 in Kissimmee at the East end. I4 at junctions 64 A & B crosses this road between Markers 7 and 8. Near Marker 15 you will find Medieval Times, a themed dinner show, and a huge 24 hour Wal-Mart which sells just about everything. For those of you who love markets, there is an indoor one near Marker 10 and behind the Big Orange! There are several Tourist Information Offices along the 192, with the least busy being between Marker 1 and 2. Cruise the 192, there's plenty to do!
Within 5 minutes drive there is large Publix supermarket, and another at the Champions Gate Complex just off I4 at J58, which stocks practically everything you could possibly want to cook whilst on vacation. In the same shopping area there is a Video/DVD/Games Rental outlet (hire any item with a credit card), a Liquor store, Hair 'n Nails beauty salon, a French Restaurant, a Chinese Restaurant, Pizzeria, Subways and McDonalds, full-service restaurants and a Walgreen’s Pharmacy.
Closer still, on the CR54/CR545 junction there is a gas station which is open from early until late for your convenience and sells fast food plus general food and drink items and phone cards. For our UK guests who wish to keep up with the news at home, you can order a British newspaper from this gas station and they will hold it for you until you are ready to pick it up.
For anyone needing emergency medication, there is a CVs Pharmacy approximately 1 mile away at the CR545/CR532 junction and the nearest hospital is at Celebration, just off Hwy 192.
If you try to do, visit and see everything in Central Florida you will drop from exhaustion unless you are staying for at least a month!! We always have a rough plan of what we want to do before we arrive. This avoids lengthy/heated discussions each morning (or the previous evening) as to who wants to go where and prevents us from wasting our valuable vacation time in Central Florida. If you would like any advice on places to visit or with planning your vacation then please contact us. We automatically send our guests a list (including driving directions) of our favourite restaurants, which are varied in type and price range.
