Full Game Room, Wii and more

Fully Equipped Game Room: Minnie's Sanctuary includes a fully fitted game room. In addition to the games mentioned below the game room includes a large screen television connected to cable.

The game room includes a gorgeous 8 foot pool table. This is not the typical 6 or 7 ft cheap version but a full 8 foot regulation slate bed pool table with leather pockets that plays true. Various pool cues are on hand for all playing styles.

In addition a 7 foot air hockey table by Sportcraft with electronic scoring. The kids, and adults with a bit of kid in them, will enjoy many hours of play.

And lastly for the foosball lovers a Harvard foosball table is there for all to enjoy. Again not a small toy version but the real McCoy.

In addition to the table games a wide assortment of games are available to please most everyone. Also includes an entertainment set with 32' TV. If you are looking for ways to pass the time between trips to the wonderful parks in the Orlando area you will find it at Minnie's Sanctuary

The Pool!: The pool provides great fun for young and old. With the shallow end of 3 foot depth the little ones can play to their hearts content. The deep end of 5 feet is deep enough for adults to play, while allowing full pool length games to occur. To that end various pool toys are provided to keep everyone happy. And with nightime pool lighting your pool enjoyment can go late into the night.

Adjacent to the pool is a large area open for sunbathing and lounging. With sun for the better part of the day this area provides an excellent opportunity to work on that Florida tan, or to read a book or whatever is your interest. Also adjacent is a BBQ grill to accommodate your outdoor cooking desires.

A covered lanai parallels the pool and lounge area. The lanai includes an overhead ceiling fan to keep a breeze moving on those warm afternoons. A table with seating for 6 provides along with a pair of wicker rocking chairs and table. A great way to sit back and enjoy a good book while enjoying the Florida outdoors. All of course without concern for insects.

About Cris Stene

We’re Cris, Ron and Stephanie Stene. During one of many visits to Florida we stayed in a lovely villa in the resort of West Haven.

We were so pleased by the whole Disney/Florida/Villa experience that we returned to Florida with a plan to purchase our own villa, which we have furnished and decorated with guests in mind.

We employ a professional management company to look after our villa when we’re not there. Should any situation arise during your stay they will be on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for immediate problem solving.

If you enjoy your stay as much as we hope you will, we’d appreciate any comments and hope you’ll recommend us to family and friends.

Why Cris Stene chose Davenport

Great location close to the Orlando action, but away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traffic. Quiet and serene community with the security of a gated community. Within 1 hours drive to either coast to experience the sunshine state beach opportunity.

What makes this villa unique

Large 4 bedroom home that will feel like home. The homeowners take great interest in ensuring guests have a wonderful and lasting experience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your villa. It fit our needs wonderfully with easy acess to the freeway for working trips to Tampa and vacation visits to the area parks. It was also very close to shopping and local restaurants. The quiet of the gated community was a perfect break from the daytime activities at Disney. The tree and palm lined streets through the West Haven community was a perfect setting for evening relaxing walks.



This was truly a home away from home with every convenience available. We cooked most meals at the villa and were amazed at all of the kitchen tools to allow home cooking and dining for our group of 7.



We will definitely be booking your villa for future stays. Hopefully the weather will cooperate a bit more so we can more fully enjoy the gorgeous swimming pool.

Minnie's Sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very quick to respond to emails and very helpful with information. The house was very nicely decorated and a great place to relax after a loooong day at the parks. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and pots and pans. A huge plus they give you towels for the pool. Great place would recommend it to all.

Great Pool Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this pool home. The house was perfect with lots of space to spread out. The entire home was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The kids enjoyed the game room, as well. The pool area was nice, too. We felt safe in this home and community. We would return to this home again.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Minnie Sanctuary was a great place to stay. We had 7 weeks there and didn't want to leave to go back to the cold weather. Everything listed in the description is accurate. It is the perfect place away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to all the attractions. The owners were very attentive and we actually got to meet them and Ron's parents. Enjoyed taking walks throughout the neighborhood daily. Took a day trip to St. Augustine and over to Cocoa Beach a few times. Had annual passes to Sea World and that was great to do at our leisure. Did the Boggy Creek airboat ride and it was a blast. Will consider returning soon. Thank you to Ron and Cris for sharing their place.

A little peice of paradish

  • 4 of 5

We arrived very late thanks for major delays or very early in the morning, and off from the main road b 3 cop cars had the road blocked with no one around other than other people trying to get up to their villa's also. I decided to called the number that was provided, the women who answered the phone was sort of shocked mostly by the late hour call, but her respond was nothing she could, So after about 20 minutes. We decided to go up the other side of the road like the other people. The Women who I called did call us in the morning to make sure we got in to the house and didn't need anything, Which was much appreciated.

The House itself was awesome, very clean and quiet. The beds were a tiny bit hard and uncomfortable but you usually have that when you go away. The pool was very dirty and we had to clean it up some ourselves to swim but when we left for dinner and grocery's on Sunday, We came back to a very clean pool:)

The living room tv wouldn't work for us but we just made the best of it and all cuddled up on the Master bedroom bed and made it work.

Overall it was a great stay and I wish I was there now. If your thinking of renting this Villa I would do it, and enjoy your little piece of paradise too.

The best option for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable, it exceeded our expectation, we feel like we were at home and had everything we need for our needs.

I really recommend this option to a family who is planning a visit to Orlando Area.

Thanks of the owners of the house, everything was very well organized and clear.
