About Mrs Dympna Tuck

I live in the Southern part of the UK with my husband and teenage son. We thoroughly enjoy Florida, and work hard during the year, so that we can enjoy our trips out to the villa.

Why Mrs Dympna Tuck chose West Haven

We bought this property as it was the perfect size for both us and our renters. We fell in love with the view and tranquility from the first moment we viewed it.

What makes this villa unique

We love the view, peacefulness, and extra large deck. The villa is a fantastic size for a single family or two families holidaying together.

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and the facilities provided- everything we needed was there which was excellent. The games room was also a big hit with our son.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this lovely villa, we were lucky enough to spend four weeks here during August. The house is immaculate and spacious with the best sun deck & pool in the area. The location is nice and relaxing with plenty of wildlife and within easy reach of the I-4 and Orlando attractions. I highly recommend booking this villa. Thank you Dympna for all your help.

Great family villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this wonderful villa and enjoyed our time here. The location of it is ideal for the theme parks and is lovely to get away from the busier areas to the quiet complex to relax after a long day. The owners were extremely friendly and always quick to reply to any queries we had and their management team out there were exactly the same.

We were very impressed with the house, arrived to find it immaculate. It is extremely spacious inside, and a large outside space ensures that everyone has their own space to unwind and chill after a busy day at the parks.

Quiet location, with excellent proximity to major road network, which meant short travelling times to the parks and malls.

We would definitely stay at this villa again, it offers excellent value for money!

Just about perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at numerous Villas and Apartments over the years, but this one is a bit special.

You can tell the owners use it as well, because it has so many nice personal touches. It was fabulously clean on our arrival and just about every possible thing we needed was there.

With the temperature topping the 100 mark, last week, the pool was just bliss for all of us.

Visits from the local red headed Cranes were welcome, right outside the lanai, balloons passing overhead gives a very laid back appeal to this Villa.

We liked everything about this and it was special for me, as this is our last foray to Florida, as we are getting a bit long in the tooth for the flights.

Smashing games room with Pool table darts and table tennis was fab...

Highly recommended....thanks, Dympna, for the use of your beautiful home...
