Top Florida Villa -Extended Pool Deck, Free Solar Pool Heat, Free Use Of Sat-Nav



Updated: 01-Oct-2016
Villa in The Hamlet, West Haven, Champions Gate, Davenport, Florida - Flat Screen TV's & Dvd's In All Bedrooms, Games Room, Free Use Of Baby Items, Books, Games, DVD's

2016 is our 12th year of renting our home to guests from all over the world. The number of repeat bookings we get confirms this is not just your average villa with basic facilities. We do updates year after year and the high standards reflect our hard work. We also believe in being honest and open so we include the sales tax in our prices so you can see at a glance exactly what the cost will be and our photos are up to date giving a true reflection of our villa. We do not believe in "stretching" or modifying photos and to be honest we have no need to do that as we have nothing to hide. We don't need to use camera tricks to make the pool deck or rooms appear bigger than they are. We can guarantee the villa will look just like the photo's. We are also happy to state which way the pool faces (south west) as this makes a difference to how much sun you get on the pool deck.

Our south-west facing pool includes free solar pool heat. We also give you free use of our Garmin Sat-Nav/GPS to make it easier to get to the theme parks, shopping malls or beaches without getting lost. We include solar pool heat, gas BBQ, use of baby items, free internet access,calls within the USA & Canada.

This villa really does have the 'wow factor' was a comment made by one of our guests. Unlike most villas owners we personally furnished the villa ourselves so we could add the personal touch and the little extras not found in the average villa. The villa is fully alarmed with a good sized safe and great games room.

The Hamlet at West Haven is a small gated community. The Championsgate area is only 1 mile away and has a supermarket, top golf course and restaurants. West Haven is minutes from junction 58 of the I4, giving easy access to the theme parks, restaurants and shopping in the Orlando area. We have many repeat guests who leave lovely comments in our guest book in the villa and after 11 years we have got quite a few!

We also have a great Management Company in Florida who know our villa well and can answer any questions during your stay. When we send arrival information before you travel we also provide you with directions from the airport straight to the villa. We do not make you drive to a Management Company office to pick up the keys especially when you are tired after a long journey and all the kids want to do is jump in the pool !!

About the Owner

We are Tracey and Mark, owners of our home from home on West Haven. We first visited Orlando in 2000. We had the time of our lives and couldn't wait to return. Our 2nd visit was in 2002 again in a normal Hotel. It was nothing special but we still had a good time in the "Sunshine State" of Florida. In early 2004 we started looking into the possibility of purchasing our own villa. We bought our villa from new and the hard work began in 2005 when we got the keys and set about furnishing it ourselves. We were told we were mad and a Company could do the furnishings for us but we wanted it to be individual and it is. Our Guests appreciate our hard work by their comments and that's what makes it all worthwhile. 20 odd trips later we still work just as hard doing updates to keep it looking great!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a long tiring flight we were absolutely "gob smacked" when we entered the villa. We were expecting good, but not as good as this. Our time in Florida has been far better than expected because it was just great to be able to retreat to "our" luxurious villa at the end of a day fighting the hordes in the theme parks and on the state highways. The high level of comfort, superb facilities and the ability to relax in the privacy of our own pool just put the cream on the bread and jam. The Housley and Lloyd Family Leeds UK

Best holiday ever!! The villa is amazing - the games room was a big hit with us all. Couldn't have wished for anything better. We want to stay here forever! Thanks Mark and Tracey for making our stay here special. Martin, Lorraine, Beth, Abi, Kizi and Toby. Hull UK

Excellent! Cannot Praise it Enough!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Florida and because we were staying over Christmas we wanted it to be perfect.

We chose this villa above all the others because it looked so very homely with quality furniture/curtains and all the trimmings that make a house look like a home rather than a rental. We were not disappointed. The villa is a home from home with every conceivable item you could possibly want.

It is located on a very quiet, gated, residential estate about 10mins drive to the I-4 which takes you to all the Orlando theme parks and shopping centres. It is also handy for being close (about 5/10 mins drive) to a Publix Supermarket, Dominoes, McDonalds, Chinese Restaurant, Petrol Station and numerous other outlets.

The owners (Tracey and Mark) will give you an enormous amount of information prior to your visit, which aided us enormously. The villa too is packed with information to enhance your stay. We were also given the use of the owners SatNav which was an absolute blessing in getting around.

If you book this Villa you will not be disappointed. It is a joy to stay in and the location is great!

From the Owner

Having visited Orlando 20 odd times we know the area well. When looking at property in 2004 we drove around lots of different communities. After staying in Hotels in the Kissimmee area on Highway 192 we knew we didn't want a villa there. Endless traffic lights drove us mad and it took forever to get around, especially theme parks at peak times. Davenport was an up and coming area so we decided to have a look. Getting around was a lot easier as you were minutes away from the I4. After looking at West Haven we knew we had found what we wanted. It's split into 6 sub communities, all gated. The Hamlet wasn't yet built but we could tell from the other communities that it was a quiet upmarket area, well kept with palm tree boulevards. It still looks as good now as it did back then if not better

We visit the villa regularly ourselves so we know our home looks as good as, if not better, than you see on the photos. Have a look at our own website www.topfloridavilla.co.uk for further details and a floor plan of the villa.

From the Owner

We know from our own experience that going to Florida is a dream holiday and you want to "get it right" with the location and accommodation. We've stayed in normal hotels, a Disney hotel and our villa. Not being biased but we would pick a villa every time! Yes the mid priced Disney hotel was nice and we could hop on their buses to the Disney Parks but we didn't spend every day at Disney. So we still needed a car to get to Universal, Seaworld and the shopping malls. Plus no kitchen meant we had to eat out all the time or in the Hotel (not cheap!). The same with normal hotels - cramped rooms, very few even have a balcony, have to eat out, have to drive. Villa - no housekeeper knocking on the door when you want a lie in, your own private pool just for you, a kitchen, the space. No contest!!
