Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 bathrooms. Sunny Private Pool, Games Room, Conservation Area, Wi-Fi

A well equipped four bedroomed villa, with the two queen sized bedrooms both being en-suite. Ideal for two families sharing. Fully air conditioned, with a private pool overlooking an extended lawn area and peaceful conservation land beyond this, which contains a lake and small island that is home to many attractive birds during much of the year. The pool can be heated, whenever required (recommended from October through April), and there is a covered outside dining area, with a quality bronze aluminium table and chairs and a ceiling fan for added comfort. A Weber charcoal barbecue and plenty of comfortable quality chairs/ sun loungers are also provided.

There is a large garage/games room, which has air hockey, pool, table football, dart board & a mini putting green for any children (or adults) in the party. It also has a exercise bike & 2 baby buggies ( single and double).

Inside there is a comfortable, carpeted living area with three sofas. The living area overlooks the pool and has a large screen TV, DVD, stereo and telephone.

There is parking on the drive for 2 full size cars.

The Sanctuary at Westhaven is one of the most exclusive, peaceful, GATED resort communities in the Orlando area. It is within 2 minutes of I-4, 2 exits south of the Disney main entrance (10 - 15 minutes away). The surrounding area is rich with restaurants, shopping, walk-in medical care, pharmacies, banks and ATM. It is ideal for avid golfers with some incredible courses nearby, such as the Greg Norman designed ChampionsGate. The resort community is a peaceful country-like setting with well manicured palm tree lined boulevards.

Davenport is ideally situated close to Orlando attractions, Davenport and Kissimmee restaurants and entertainment with easy access to either coast (less than 1 hour to either coast). Come and enjoy our villa and relax.... well after a hard day at the Theme park, golf course or shops.

Why Ann and Henry Gorton chose West Haven

We have always wanted a holiday home & Florida holds such special memories for us as a family. We have been coming to this area for over 20 years & there are still so many things we haven't got round to yet. The villa is the perfect place to be, peaceful, very private yet so near the action.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa is perfect for two small families sharing. The adults/parents both get their own en-suite bathroom and there are two twin bedrooms for the children. Our reviewers often comment on how clean they find our Villa. We are continually improving in order to keep the Villa to a high standard. Last year we added new lounge and dining furniture. We have tried to include all the extra things that you would have at home for the added comfort of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a lovely stay at Palm Villa, a perfect base from which to take the grandchildren to the theme parks.

I find it difficult to suggest anything that needs adding or changing. A great stay at a lovely house and location and would hope to have the opportunity to return in the future.

Amazing.different & fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving the weekend of Hurricane Irma we experienced it 1st hand, 3 days of wind & rain,with the villa being so well equipped with all sorts of games from Trivial pursuit to pool we were kept entertained.

The villa itself is like a home from home, very clean with all appliances available for use, the pool area is just right for what's needed! We had damage to the screening which was repaired very quickly with no intrusion into our break.

The local area has all types of restaurants & shopping facilities, drive a little further and Florida is your oyster.

Ann & Henry had sent us some information including places to eat & visit which we did and thoroughly enjoyed(Cheesecake Factory is a must).

All in all we both had an amazing, fantastic, wonderful time and will definetly be going back & hopefully enjoying the comforts of palm villa again.

Beautiful, comfortable, and with a very friendly owner. Would use again.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a great location and we really enjoyed the environment by the pool. The sun is around the pool area all day until 5:30, and occasionally we got a visit from some beautiful wild birds. The outdoor chairs were so comfortable and it's a good place to sit and watch the Disney fireworks too!

The inside of the villa was very clean, comfortable and well equipped (fantastic washing machine and tumble dryer!!) - its clear that this home is well looked after.

The owner is very informative and very helpful. Would definetly recommend.

Thank You!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review, You can certainly hear the Disney fireworks, but the ones you saw were most likely from champions gate. They have them every holiday.

Great location for the parks, very clean with big bedrooms and we loved the pool area

  • 5 of 5

We last visited Orlando 10 years ago and stayed in the Swan and Dolphin hotel which was great but we found not having somewhere to kick back at night after a long hot day in the parks hard work, so when we decided to go back we wanted to mix up a villa stay with 3 nights in the hard rock hotel so we could take advantage of the early admission and express line jumping passes.

This was a special holiday that we had been promising ourselves for 10 years and so everything had to be just right. When searching for our villa we kept coming back to this one as it had everything we wanted location for parks, supermarkets and restaurants close by and a good pool area. However, the main reason why we chose it was reading the reviews everyone kept mentioning how good the owners Ann and Henry had been with them. With so many people saying how good Ann and Henry had been then we knew this was the villa for us and we weren't wrong.

Ann's communication with us from questions before booking to advice and help leading up to the holiday and help when on holiday was first class and we felt we were staying in someone's home rather than just a villa.

For our party of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenage children) it was perfect and we would like to thanks Ann and Henry for helping us have a wonderful Orlando family holiday

Great base for exploring Orlando.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well equipped clean villa.

Kids loved having their own pool to jump in after a hot day in the parks.

Good location away from the hub bub, half hour away from Disney.
