There are numerous local guide services and charters available which I will be happy to help you with if you need it.
From Anita and Richard.: Welcome to our home in central Florida which we purchased in 2003 because after many fabulous holidays to the area we decided that it would be a great place to buy so that we could spend more time here, unfortunately we have to work hard as well so only get a few weeks each year to spend in Florida so the rest of the year we rent it out to other families for their holiday's. We genuinely believe that our home is among the best rental homes in the area having stayed in a few ourselves, some nice & some not as nice. The area is very peaceful with lots of open countryside but within easy reach (2 miles) of the main highway which gives you access to a whole world of fun and activities. Please take your time considering when you go and where you stay as it may make or break your holiday as its not cheap & you only get a few weeks holiday a year to make the most of it. Please call or email if you would like some more information & we hope we can help you have a great holiday
We both Live and work in Dorset England running two restaurants and an events company. I teach Game/Fly fishing to all who wish to participate and Anita makes amazing cakes in our spare time. We try to go to Florida at least once per year which is never enough. We love it because there is always something new to do every year and you can get off the beaten track to see the Florida countryside/outback/bush so easily, the shopping and eating places are never ending and the parks are just magical for everyone. I'm dreaming about it just writing this.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2002
The area we chose was one of those that was very close to the Disney parks but not in an over developed tourist area. It is extremely well positioned for a trip to anywhere in Florida using US 27 North/South or I4 Interstate East/West. I am a keen Sport fisherman and we are surrounded by inland waterways and lakes and also only an hour from the big game fishing on the coast. It is also perfect for golfers with Champions gate 2 minutes away with two Golf courses designed by Greg Norman and a David Lead better Dream Academy, wit another 60 championship courses within easy reach by car. When you sit in the garden you would think that you are a million miles from anywhere although just 5 minutes away there are restaurants and shops for all to enjoy.
Perfect Position for all attractions and te whole of Florida
Peace and Quiet
Easy to get to from all Airports
These villas were built to a very high spec and the open plan design suited our needs, excellent community of only 58 villas
Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous home. It was just what we wanted and very peaceful. We were close to Disney World and the Golf at Champions Gate was fantastic.
We stayed in West Haven for three weeks this August and had a great time. Our two girls (12 and 9) loved the pool - had they been two boys they would no doubt have spent more time in the well-equipped 'play garage' with its table soccer, pool and air hockey.
The house is very spacious and air conditioning was good – every day was between 32 and 35c and we’ve stayed places were the aircon hasn’t been able to cope so was pleasing to be able to get a good night’s sleep between long and hot park days. Has all the facilities you need, everything in good order. Plenty of towels and as we were there 3 weeks the washing facilities were very useful.
Disney is also genuinely close. Just short drive to the I4 and then two exits to get on the entrance roads to the parks - the only time we got stuck in jams was our SeaWorld days that need a longer drive along the I4 towards Orlando.
Publix supermarket is not much more than 5 mins and enroute to Disney, so stopping either on way to the parks or on way back became our routine. Elephant ears were a firm breakfast favourite.
The residential area seemed nice. Lots of housing and commercial developments going up around the nearby Champions Gate so obviously a growing area. We ate out at the Red Robin 'gourmet burger' restaurant a couple of times at the nearby Champions Gate as well as at the parks which the kids really enjoyed. We didn’t get a chance to use the residential community facilities (tennis courts, gym etc) as you just can’t fit it all in, but we felt safe and secure in the gated community.
Everything was fairly represented and we really enjoyed our stay.
We spent a week here with 4 teenagers and never once heard "I am bored" . The pool was very nice and we spent several hours in it playing volleyball and such. The game room, although not airconditioned, was a diversion and kept the teens busy. The air hockey table did not work too well. It could use a new cue stick or 2 for the pool table. The ping pong paddles were really worn and there were only 3 of them. The house is close to Disney entrances, but 19 miles to Universal. Quiet neighborhood, very nicely kept. Close to Publix grocery store. Several items in the kitchen were damaged and the ceiling fan in one twin room was out of balance and made a loud noise so it was unusable. We rented a grill for the week and it was delivered quickly. The call on the ceiling fan was not attended to as quickly. We did not have it fixed while we were there. I hope it is fixed now. Loved the convenience of having a bathroom by the pool and one by the game room. The house itself gets 5 stars.....the little things
...when corrected will make this rental a solid 5!
This Villa was extreamly clean and tidy. Everything needed was at hand. An excellent location with easy access to all attractions and main highways. Peaceful location and setting. Really lovely.
I would recomend this house to everyone, our stay was wonderful. The house was so nice, full of sunshine, loved the pool area and game room for the kids and the community was so peaceful. Champions Gate is great, loved having such easy access to a grocery store. Only about 15 minutes travel to the Disney parks, and many restuarants nearby, very easy to get to everything from this house. We will definitely be going back on our next vacation to Florida.
I was a bit concerned about the pool heat from previous renters comment.However it was fine and warm enough for the children to enjoy.The property was clean and well maintained but the sheets and towels are tired and need renewing some towels were stained .The kitchen was not well equipped no salad bowl ,milk jug .egg cups but enough plates etc .The managing company sorted out a minor problem with tv remote control efficiently.Disappointed that communal pool was not available as communal facilities were not open as yet .The property is well located for all disney and other attractions but in a quiet neighbourhood away from the madding crowd
Our Florida villa is in a small gated community called The Abbey in the premium Westhaven development, Davenport, Florida. It is very peaceful & away from main roads with its own lake. Champions gate is just two minutes drive away where you will find a Public supermarket, pharmacy, post office, 5 restaurants, service station and shops. This is also where you join the main interstate highway 4 to get you to the parks and attractions. Disney World 10 minutes, Sea World 20 minutes, Universal 30 minutes, beach 50 minutes, Downtown Orlando 40 minutes, highway 192 and Kissimee 15 minutes. At champions gate there is one of the top golf courses in the area designed by Greg Norman and if you like a spot of fishing there are lakes and ponds locally that may be fished. Also the property is managed by a local company who are always on hand to help enjoy your stay.
Other Activities: Central Florida parks and attractions and eating out
