THE VILLA NOW HAS FREE SOLAR POOL HEAT AND A GARMIN SAT-NAV/GPS FOR GUESTS TO USE FREE OF CHARGE DURING THEIR STAY. ALL DATES CAN BE QUOTED IN US DOLLARS OR UK £. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR A QUOTE.
Take a look at our website to view comments left in our visitor book by previous guests. Their comments alone will confirm you have made the right choice for your villa in Orlando whether your party is a family, group of friends or golfers wanting a great place to stay. Our villa was personally designed and furnished by ourselves making it unique. It is fully air-conditioned and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms with private pool and extended pool deck.
We have also had solar pool heat installed which makes a big difference to the water temperature compared to a pool without solar pool heat. However, please consider paying the additonal charge in the cooler months for the electric pool heater to be turned on due to the reduced hours of sunshine thus making solar less effective. When we visited ourselves and had the solar fitted in the September we noticed a big improvement in the water temperature compared to a previous visit in the month of September. Those night time swims are so lovely since having the solar pool heat fitted.
The pool area is fenced all the way round making it totally private from villas at either side. We also have a games room with eight foot pool table, air hockey table and foosball table,free wireless internet access and free use of baby items (Graco stroller/pushchair, travel crib/cot, highchair and baby rocking chair).
Free use of gas BBQ. You may be required to purchase a bottle of gas if the gas bottle is empty on your arrival (approximately $20/£11 from nearby gas/petrol station). The BBQ must be cleaned before your departure so it is left clean for the next guest.
We also provide a safe at no extra charge. We have added many extra little touches as we were determined that our second home wasn't going to become just another 'rental' villa. In fact, we even had ceiling lights installed in every room, something you don't tend to find in most villas. This is, after all, where we too enjoy memorable holidays just like our guests.
In our villa, you will find extras like plenty of books, guide books for Disney and the Orlando area, board games, pool toys, Playstation 3 with games and DVD's. In fact, every bedroom has it's own TV with combined DVD. All furnishings, bed linen, etc. are of the highest quality. Even the kitchen has a lot more equipment and utensils than the average villa should you wish to prepare meals at home - you won't just find the bare essentials in this home!
LOCATION - You couldn't be in a better area. Our villa is situated on the Hamlet at West Haven which is a small gated community with beautifully landscaped communal areas. As you enter West Haven down the palm tree lined boulevard, you soon realize this is one of the newer, more up-market communities. In addition to your own private pool there is a community pool, tennis courts and small childrens playground only a few minutes walk from the villa.
The villa is only minutes away from Junction 58 of the I4 giving easy access to all the theme parks, golf courses and shopping areas. Disney is only 15 minutes, Universal and Seaworld about 20 minutes. It is also only one hour's drive to both the Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches. The Champions Gate area is only five minutes away where you will find the prestigious Golf courses, large Publix supermarket, Chinese and Italian restaurants, fast food outlets, Walgreens pharmacy and a gas/petrol station.
For the comfort and safety of all our guests this is a non-smoking home, however smoking is permitted on the pool deck. No pets are allowed. A really lovely home in a great location so book now, you will not be disappointed.
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!
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!!
Our villa is one of only a handful on our community to have an extended pool deck. We also have solar pool heat which is rarely found in vacation villas Our pool deck is fully fenced all the way round giving you privacy not only from the villas at the back but also from villas at either side. What you see on our photos is exactly what you get. None of our photo's are stretched in any way to make the pool deck look bigger than it is so yes, you really do have plenty of space to move sunbeds around! We try to go the extra mile for our guests to make your stay a home away from home. Beach towels, large and small cool boxes, hairdryers, a safe, desk and printer (handy if you need to print boarding cards) and plenty of kitchenware are all provided for our guests. No additional charge for baby items (have a look at the photo to see what we provide). We also have a baby listening device too. We put a lot of time, hard work and money into our home and constantly do updates to keep it looking good year after year. One of our guests are doing their 8th trip in a row in 2014 and another will be making their 3rd trip in a row which is a big compliment to us when there are so many villas to choose from. We have lots of repeat guests so I guess we are doing something right. We are confident you will love our villa and it will live up to all your expectations and more.
Only 5 minutes drive to 2 fantastic 18 hole golf courses and the David Leadbetter golf academy at the Champions gate Golf Resort.
