We, Barry and Alison E., live in Hampshire, England with our three daughters. We first visited Florida in 2006 and instantly fell in love with it. We have spent almost every holiday since in Florida, and decided to buy our own holiday home there in 2009.
We wanted to buy a house, within easy reach of Disney and other theme parks, but in an area which has some character. Many of the more recent developments (built around 2005/6) seem a bit bland and sterile, with few trees or plant-life. Davenport lakes was built around 1998/1999 and has a more established feel to it. Many of the homes are owned by people who live there permanently, who all seem very friendly.
