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 Gorton chose Davenport

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.

Nice quiet location not far from main attractions

  • 5 of 5

Staying here gave us the best of both worlds, kicking back and relaxing in a quiet location or going to all the parks with ease. The villa was very clean and presented very well with everything you would need. The pool is gorgeous, again very clean and tidy with good outside furniture. Ann & Henry are very good people, can be contacted through the app and give a swift reply to any queries or problems (eg. hurricane Matthew) you have. Thank you Ann & Henry we will definitely if possible, date wise, stay again but for longer.

Gary, katie & family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We do try to make all our guests feel welcome. It is a pity that you had to experience the worse weather that Florida can offer. We would like to thank you for preparing for the hurricane & looking after our home for us. We hope you will come again soon.

Just what we expected - clean, spacious, lovely pool, in a gated quiet area and close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this lovely home. The property is as described - very clean with a lovely pool and in a quiet gated area. Importantly it is close to Disney and within easy reach of the I4 and Celebration. A bonus was the games room in the garage!!!!!

We will definitely use this villa again in the future. Definitely recommend.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is everything you could possibly ask for! It is as close to all the theme parks as it says but it is also your own idyllic retreat away from it all also. I was overwhelmed by the choice of villas and locations on offer in Orlando but read a review that stated, "Look no further ..", for this villa, thank you to that person you hit the nail on the head!! We would recommend to anybody & everybody!

Fantastic villa, superb location

  • 5 of 5

Ann and Henry were very efficient, friendly and helpful from start to finish. The villa is gorgeous, spacious, clean and well equipped. Having the pool was fantastic, the children used it every day and it was great for a dip after a long, hot day at the parks! The Disney parks are only 15 mins away and the nearest supermarket and restaurant are only 5 mins away. The Sanctuary is a perfect location, friendly, quiet and beautiful - we enjoyed watching the lizards, birds and rabbits! This was the holiday of a lifetime for us so we wanted to make sure we booked the perfect place to stay - and we did! Highly recommended.

Homely, comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ann's villa for 2 weeks over Easter 2016 as a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children). Every one of us loved coming back to the villa at the end of a long day, taking a dip in the pool, or playing in the games room, or relaxing in the lounge, the sofas are so comfy! All the bedrooms are great, with adequate space. All beds were very comfy too. The bathrooms are also brilliant, the 2 ensuites are lovely and spacious. The whole villa was very clean from top to bottom and the cupboards are full of crockery, glasses, mugs etc. There are tons of regular towels and tons of pool towels, which means we were never short when some were in the wash. The same goes for bedding. We made use of the washing machine and tumble drier, so came home with minimal dirty washing! There were a few amenities (such a soap, coffee, washing up liquid) to keep you going when you arrived which was great that we didn't have to stop at a shop on the way from the airport. The morning traffic leaving the area was a bit of a pain if we left at peak times - but I'm sure if you do your research, there are ways to avoid most of it. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and we are so pleased you had a great time. We are constantly trying to add to the Villa to make it even more comfortable and convenient for our guests. The traffic on I-4 is always very busy at peak times i.e. Easter and Christmas. If going to Disney our advice is to take the earliest exit onto Disney property and then follow the signs to your Disney destination. They are all connected and you then have options when you are not stuck on I-4 in holiday traffic.
