One of the best parts of my job is speaking with all the lovely Ellis Exclusive Villas home owners and guests on a daily basis.  I love to hear about it when my guests have enjoyed a wonderful holiday.


The story I’m going to share with you now is a really exciting success story.

Casa Amoré is a new vacation home we have recently taken on, located on the attractive and amenity-rich gated resort of Watersong in Davenport.

It was bought by a lovely British couple in July this year, after having been left to fall into a little disrepair.

Sue and Mark had a really clear vision for their home and the kind of quality environment they wanted to create for their guests, but they also knew that as first-time Florida property owners there was a lot they needed to learn.


They approached us to manage their home for them and together we devised a plan which would help the couple prioritise the work that needed to be done on the property to get it ready for rental.

In July, when the property became theirs, Mark and Sue kindly honoured the booking that the previous owner had taken and then got to work!  They spent three weeks at their vacation home this September and did a huge amount of work.

Every carpet has been deep cleaned, every bed has been replaced and new linens have been purchased for all the bedrooms and bathrooms.  The couple also invested in TVs for all the bedrooms, which is something that many guests expect now and also helps to widen the property’s appeal to groups, not only families.


The couple also redecorated some of the rooms, including the family room where they have installed a fabulous 65” TV.  Mark says: “We wanted to create a vacation home where our family would love to stay; the sort of place where we would go in and say ‘wow’.”

I think you’ll agree the couple have certainly achieved that!  And it has been an absolute delight to get to this point!

And the best news?  In the four weeks since the Orlando vacation home has been actively marketed the couple have already taken 27 weeks of bookings.

I couldn’t have wished more for them and they thoroughly deserve it.  I wish them every success.
