About The Owner

We fell in love with the friendly & relaxed Florida lifestyle on our first visit with our two young sons way back in 1988 and revisited several times after that. As retirement approached and longer visits became an actual reality we considered our best option was to buy our own holiday home which has proved to be perfect for us, our children and their children. We have made many new friends amongst other owners and enjoy getting together with them either in the UK or at Glenbrook. Just like all of us youngsters, our grandchildren spend hours in the pool and love visiting all the theme parks. When staying without family or friends one of our favourite activities is to play golf at the local courses which have very different wildlife from those in the UK - a lost ball stays lost!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Palm Haven is everything you said it would be and more. Spotlessly clean and so much room with everything you could possibly need.The Bailey Family, Essex

We had a wonderful time staying at your house. It's designed so nicely, it's really beautiful.The Badian Family, Baltimore.

I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic holiday in your wonderful home, Palm Haven. The pool area was fantastic, and our children loved the lights at night. Inside, you had thought of everything we could possibly want and more.We found it beautifully decorated and accessorised, very relaxing and tranquil after a busy day out in the theme parks. The house was spotlessly clean, and well-maintained, and within a few minutes drive of supermarkets, restaurants and Disneyworld.I would highly recommend it and it is definitely ‘a home from home’ minus the chores! The Firth Family East Yorkshire.

It really is a home from home and we have had 4 glorious weeks here. The Marshall Family, England

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This may be the best house we have ever stayed at in Orlando. Everything from communication with the homeowners, a call to the management company to help us figure something out, to the brand new appliances were all perfect. Just the fact that they have an abundance of everything you could possibly need made our vacation absolutely perfect. I will be recommending this house to all my friends and family and we will rent this house again anytime we visit Orlando. Thanks Maureen and Ian for an exceptional home and a great experience.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this villa again (last stayed 2 years ago), and once again we had a fabulous time. The villa was even better than I remembered.

The patio area has been extended allowing even more space for chairs and loungers, and the interior of the house is beautiful. There was absolutely everything we needed in the villa .

Fab location - restaurants and takeaways within walking distance, and Walmart was just a few minutes drive.

I will definitely be hoping to book this villa again when we next visit Florida.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time. Everything in the home was as described. The home had everything we needed. Just had to supply food and personal items. Very nice neighborhood. We would love to return to Palm Haven on our next trip.

Private Paradise at "Palm Haven" - Near the amusement parks

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Palm Haven twice now. We love it. Nice to have the extra space and privacy that a house provides. And No sharing the pool & spa with a big sweaty hairy guy you don't know like in the commercials. This house is 15 to 30 minutes from the Disney, Sea World and Universal parks. 1.5 hours from St Petes beach on the gulf and 1.25 hours from Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic. We did all of that again this year. Can't forget to mention the Harry Potter areas at the Universal Studio Parks. People from all over Love their Harry Potter. Our family had a great time and made memories that will last a life time at Palm Haven and surrounding area. My wife loves this house and location. We are from ND and she felt very safe at this house. There's a Walmart close by and lots of eating places best of which is the I heart NY Pizza at Cagan Crossing. The house washer and drier and blender for making margarita's are just added bonuses. Make sure to check the pantry in the garage before hitting the Walmart for supplies. If you are getting tired of paging though reviews of VRBO homes, stop already book this place and make the wife and kids happy with a great vacation to a fun in the sun vacation paradise. Just remember the parks are not cheap and having a rest day in-between your park days will make for a better overall experience. Thanks again to Ian and Maureen for sharing there Paradise at Palm Haven.

Lovely welcoming holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of Palm Haven was lovely and welcoming. It was even more spacious than the photos gave it credit for. Clean, and well equipped and a helpful welcome folder to help find your way around the villa and the surrounding area.

We had heating in the pool which was lovely in December, although most days the weather was very hot anyway. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets a short trip away and an easy drive into Disney area and Orlando.

Ian and Maureen look after there guests very well and I have no doubt if we did have any problems it would have been sorted out by their maintenance company.

A beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautifully decorated and equipped. Excellent condition; pool area clean and well maintained and lovely to spend some relaxing time. The villa is in a perfect location for Disney / Universal. The laundry appliances were of a high specification and easy to use.

The owners were informative throughout the booking process and contacted us on arrival to ensure all was well. As we were travelling around Hurricane Matthew time they even took the time to make sure we were fully informed on what to do and that we were safe. I would love to stay here again and would have hesitation in recommending it.

Thank you again Ian & Maureen on letting us use your beautiful home x
