About Ross Barry
I am a Financial Adviser based in Dublin, Ireland married to Linda with 3 kids Gavin, Keith & Bronwen. Apart from my Holiday Home letting (hobby!!), I like to play Golf, I fly small planes and I enjoy swimming and skiing.
Ross Barry purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Ross Barry chose West Haven
As a family we love Orlando. The climate, attractions and the cheap flying (one of my hobbies) made it a simple decision to buy there! The Abbey is a stunning Community and out of all the choices available to me it was an easy decision with its fantastic views, huge space and the fact that it was so close to everything. We paid for a premium lot to give us that amazing view whilst also installing a Spa and Balcony all of which are items I would love to have myself if I was renting a Villa. In simple terms, I would expect a high standard if I was renting a house myself and that is the standard I give to our guests at The Abbey!
What makes this Villa unique
I love the fact that every morning at about 7.45 a.m. the sky over The Abbey is filled with Hot Air Balloons! In the evening, you can listen to the amazing chorus of frogs and crickets close to the lake. The whole house is so large and spacious with massive Pool Deck. The spaciousness is fabulous and the house is so well designed that when I have to leave to travel back to Ireland to my home, I am missing it before I even leave!!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Plenty of space. Pool good. Convenient for parks.
Could do with updating some things but overall in good condition.
As always, the property was great.
Nice pet friendly home
We enjoyed our 10 night stay at this home. Ross, the owner, made the process very easy. He always replied to any questions or concerns I had quickly. He also returned my security deposit very quickly, which I appreciate.
The house worked well for having our dogs with us, it is very pet friendly. The downstairs master was great for my husband who has mobility issues due to illness and worked out very well for him. There are plenty of TV's even though we really didn't use them. Nice garage game room, even though we did not use it. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt very safe there. Without traffic, it is about 20 minutes to Disney and an easy drive. The pool/sitting area out back is wonderful and we did spend a lot of or time out there at all different times of the day. You can indeed see the Disney fireworks in the distance at night and the hot air balloons in the mornings are lovely from back there.
Would not hesitate to rent this home again in the future. Thanks again Ross.
The house was fantastic! So spacious and clean. We had lots of fun there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Orlando. My 3 yr old was sad we weren’t staying there forever.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable in every way...
Excellent for a large family vacation
This was absolutely incredible. The house is amazing (my kids all want to live here lol) I would’ve saved my money from the Disney parks and just stayed in the house if I would’ve known the house was this awesome. Aside from needing a few updates (beds aren’t comfortable, the washer machine shakes and some curtains need replacement) everything else was amazing. Pictures don’t do it justice. I will be booking my next family vacation here!!! Thank you Ross for always being responsive and making this process so easy!
We are right in the centre of the Theme Park capital of the world with Disney, Seaworld, Universal, Legoland, Busch Gardens and all of the Water Parks only a matter of minutes away. We are so near Disney you can actually see the evening Fireworks from our Deck. All this plus the luxury too!
