New retail outlets coming to Posner Park, Davenport in 2019

Since buying the villa at the end of 2014 it has been interesting to see the amount of new development that has taken place within a couple of miles of Watersong Resort. Posner Park retail park was already built when we first had the villa but a couple of years ago a brand new highway called Ernie Caldwell Boulevard has opened. This road is a couple of minutes off the 17-92 Highway which is the main road leading from Watersong. It is a pretty impressive road with two lanes each side and very often nearly empty. It makes the drive from the.......Read the full article...

New Supermarkets being built near Watersong Resort, Davenport

There are quite a lot of different supermarkets near to Florida Delight and Guests seem to have their own preference of where they like to shop, much as we all do at home. Personally my favourite is Aldi because the prices, like in the UK, are I believe, cheaper than the other supermarkets. Also though the queues are never so bad as stores such as Walmart. Over the past four years we have tended to use Walmart at Haines City or Aldi which is a couple of minutes drive further on from Walmart. We also use the Publix stores at either Champions Gat.......Read the full article...

The Building Of Florida Delight, Orlando

Today 4th June, 2015 marks the one year anniversary of when building work started on Florida Delight so we wanted to capture in our blog the sequence of the construction as shown in the photos below that were sent to us on a regular basis by Craig the Realtor to keep us updated and excited.   After returning home from Florida at the end of February 2014, having signed the initial contract for the off plan build of Florida Delight (on plot 63) and setting up our american bank account we were eager for building work to start as soon as poss.......Read the full article...

Choosing our dream villa on Watersong Resort, Orlando

For a couple of years before deciding to buy our villa in Florida we had been watching the television programme “Escape To The Winter Sun” in which couples were shown various properties in locations around the world where they were thinking of buying a home. Whenever the programme featured Florida we both found ourselves wishing it could be us as we were so impressed by both the houses and the locations which were absolutely amazing. We knew then that having somewhere in Florida that we could enjoy for holidays with our own family a.......Read the full article...

13 Best Places for Wildlife Watching in Florida

  One of the greatest revelations to us since owning the villa and taking holidays over in Florida has been the abundance of wild life out there. Around the resort of Watersong itself we have so far spotted deer, an armadillo, racoons, an alligator, Sand Hill Cranes and vultures all of which are wonderful to see. Also whenever we have a holiday ourselves at Florida Delight we always make sure we have a number of excursions out to different places to enjoy Florida's wildlife and nature in its natural habitat.  We have had lots of gre.......Read the full article...

The 5 Best Water Parks in Orlando

What a fun day out a day at a water park is! You have a lot of fun and excitement but being water based it is of course a lot cooler than walking round a theme park and more relaxing. Quite a lot of our guests tell us that they like to do a waterpark day in between a day at Disney or Universal as a "chill out" day.  So far we have been to Universal's Volcano Bay and Seaworld's Aquatica. We enjoyed both but of the two we thought that Volcano Bay was far better and would definitely go there again. We have not yet done either of the Disney w.......Read the full article...

A guide to the new rides and attractions coming to Orlando's theme parks in 2019

As we all know, Orlando doesn't ever "let the grass grow under its feet". It is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and continuously works hard to maintain that status by adding to its already vast array of attractions. This not only makes it a very exciting destination for visitors coming to Florida for the first time but it also means that those amongst us, (and there are many) who spend their holidays there on a regular basis, have a lot of new experiences to be able to try too.  A great website that we would recommend you .......Read the full article...

Christmas and New Year attractions at Orlando's theme parks

Orlando is a place that people visit with a high expectation of a magical experience whatever the time of year. However, combine the fun and excitement of the theme parks with the magic of Christmas and New Year and you have a winning combination like no other!  The festive period is always a popular one with guests wanting to book our villa, as is Halloween. Although we have never stayed in the villa ourselves at Christmas, we do always have a holiday in Orlando in early November and even then the Christmas decorations are up and looking .......Read the full article...

Guest Reviews of Florida Delight

Today 10th November, 2018 marks four years to the day that we signed on the dotted line and finally took possession of our newly built villa, Florida Delight, after initially choosing the plot and design back in February. We had our first holiday in the villa in January 2015 and at that time we bought a book that we leave in the villa for guests to write in and leave any comments. Some people do and some don't but whenever any comments have been left we always enjoy reading them and they always make us smile. Hopefully others who stay here and .......Read the full article...

The Manatees at Blue Spring State Park

The first time that Richard and I ever saw a manatee was when we went to the Mote Aquarium in Sarasota a couple of years ago and were amazed at how large  and beautiful they were. Mote Aquarium is well worth a visit but in our opinion, nothing beats seeing an animal in its natural surroundings so a trip to one of the state parks such as Blue Spring  was a must do activity on our next visit. Blue Spring State Park is approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes away from the villa and a great place to have a day out. You can see.......Read the full article...
