Davenport may not ring a bell at first, but perhaps you’re familiar with its uptown neighbors, Mickey and Minnie Mouse? Only 20 minutes from the Magic Kingdom, and a few minutes more to the rest of Central Florida’s world-renowned theme parks, the best villas in Davenport give you resort-style amenities with home-like living. Round up the family or gather your old gang of friends and fall in love with the Sunshine State’s lifestyle at one of the best villas to rent in Davenport, bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Moonvalley Villa #230706 – 6-BR Villa, for outdoorsy summer days

Who said you need a beach or a theme park ticket to have the ultimate Florida vacation? Check into the Moonvalley Villa and define relaxation however you choose. We think hours by the private pool and the tennis court are the best way to get acquainted with Davenport’s sunny vibes, but you may prefer parking yourself on the plush leather sectional and jumping on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers bandwagon via the flatscreen TV.

2. Windsor Place Villa #231000 – 5-BR villa, for the enticing pool

This Davenport villa is almost too good of a pick for your theme park holiday. Its quiet location on a residential cul-de-sac will make it feel like home instantly, which means you’ll have a difficult time escaping the pull of the oversized pool and lanai. The tennis court and sand volleyball court at the clubhouse won’t help get you on the road either, though it will help you get your dose of Vitamin D and natural endorphins for the day.

3. Terrasonesta Townhome #230907 – 4-BR townhouse, for fireside swimming

Here’s a crash course in living like a local in Davenport: first, check into this supremely comfortable townhouse and get used to living in shorts, sandals and sunglasses. Next, spend all day theme park-hopping and making memories that will last a lifetime. Then, unwind with a drink beside the resort pool’s outdoor fireplace, because even a light breeze is reason enough to stoke a flame in Florida. Finally, sit on your private balcony reviewing your photos and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow.

4. Villas at Regal Palms, for making a splash

With a full-blown swimming pavilion complete with a lazy river, waterslide and beach-style pool, is it fair to call the Villas at Regal Palms one of the best villa complexes in Davenport or is it an awesome pint-sized water park that just happens to have comfortable townhomes for rent? We’ll let you think it over during a deep-tissue massage in the Cenote Day Spa, or perhaps a Bahama Mama at the Tiki Bar.

5. Mulligan Villa #230702 – 6-BR villa, for making each day count

We like to think that this six-bedroom villa in ChampionsGate is named Mulligan because it offers a fresh start every day. Imagine getting an instant do-over right when you wake up so you can reposition your lounge chair to avoid an uneven tan or move your daily tennis game to avoid the summer sun showers. Picture yourself finally perfecting your breakfast omelet in the full kitchen, foreshadowing a day at the theme parks that’ll no doubt be sunny side up.

6. Rolling Fairway Villa #230692 – 5-BR villa, for a hole-in-one holiday

Rolling Fairway Villa may be one of the best villas in Davenport near the Oasis Club of ChampionsGate, but you’d better not rely on the fairway to roll you under par. It’ll be way too easy to spend your off-course days by the spa pool instead of on the driving range. The kids will drag you off of the putting green before you know it, insisting that you take them to the movie theater and game room at the clubhouse.

7. Suffolk Villa #231074 – 5-BR villa, for fly-and-flop convenience

After squeezing into economy class seats for hours on end, your crew will appreciate how close this five-bedroom villa is to the airport. Within a half hour, you’ll go from baggage claim to claiming one of the lounge chairs beside the pool. When the kids aren’t tracking wet footprints across the oversized lanai, they’ll be hanging out in the game room testing their foosball and billiards skills (though hopefully not testing the strength of the drywall).

8. Hanging Moss Villa #230933 – 4-BR villa, for Disney proximity

A waterfront villa, with a pool, 20 minutes from Disney World – if that doesn’t sound like the dream Florida vacation, then we don’t know what does. This safe and quiet neighborhood is only a few clicks of a turn signal away from I-4, getting you to the theme parks lightning fast. Perhaps most importantly for the kids, everyone gets their own room and their own flatscreen TV, so no one will have to battle it out between SpongeBob, Harry Potter, Mickey Mouse and the other fictional friends you’ll meet on your vacation.
