About the property

Villa in Sanctuary at Westhaven, Davenport, Florida - Sanctuary at Westhaven, 15 Mins from Disney

Our villa has a spacious living area and dining for up to 10 people. You can enjoy a game of snooker or air hockey if you can manage to tear yourself away from the many theme parks and shopping malls. Eating out is easy, choosing where to go is more difficult with so many restaurants to choose from.....Chilli's, Crackerbarrel, Applebees, Wendy's, Denny's, McDonalds, Publix Supermarket is close by or if you prefer, you can drive for around 15 minutes to the 24hr Walmart on the '27'. No matter how many are in your party I'm sure you will find our location suits all.

About Betty Christie

We live in Scotland and have a son, daughter and four lovely grandchildren. We have enjoyed holidays in Florida since 1980. We bought our beautiful 4 bedroom villa in Orlando in 2005 knowing that our grandchildren would enjoy it as much as we have over the years. When we are in Florida we enjoy taking our grandchildren to the many theme parks (there is always something new to see!!). They also enjoy our large swimming pool on their 'rest' days from the parks.

Betty Christie purchased this villa in 2005

Why Betty Christie chose Davenport

We are close to Disney and only 35 minutes drive from Orlando International Airport. There is a great choice of restaurants, shops and of course fantastic golf courses with Champions Gate being only a 3 minute drive away. We love to go to Clearwater beach or visit some of the beautiful shops in Sarasota. There is also a great opportunity to spot some wildlife on the Gulf Coast our choice being Englewood or Venice.

What makes this villa unique

Our 4 bedroom villa has a lovely south facing outdoor pool 15 x 30' that can also be heated if necessary. When we get back from all the outdoor activities that are available we like to relax with a refreshing drink at the pool. The villa also has flat screen televisions in all rooms, our recent addition being a Smart TV. We also enjoy the pool table and air hockey in our games room.

Free internet access is also available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay at your villa. We have stayed at villas 4 times in the past but this is the first villa that we want to return to. We will be in

touch in the new year.

Well maintained home

  • 4 of 5

We've been renting in Florida every winter for 2 to 3 months for ten years now and this is one of the nicest homes we've stayed in. It's hard to find a property in this area that is affordable and hasn't been rented into the other words, investors who own homes and do no upgrades or even the smallest repairs. Once you lay your money down and arrive for your holiday....surprise....those online pics are 20 years old. Having said this let me begin by saying that Betty and Bobbie's home is beautiful. These are proud home owners. The pool and patio area is clean and appears to be recently painted. The patio furniture is exactly as shown. The inside of the home was spotless....clean painted walls, nice carpets in the bedrooms, no mold in any of the corners....very nice. The toilets flush, the showers work well, all appliances are clean and work....what a concept! And brand new Samsung washer and dryer! It may not seem like a big deal but compared to the homes we've rented down here, this is wonderful....we've already booked for next year. The area itself is quiet and safe...we walked everywhere with no issues...the people always friendly. Shopping is 5 minutes away. Tons to do...and hot.

When we first arrived, the phone rang and it was Betty calling to ask if everything was ok...if we needed anything....that was a first...we never hear from the owners. She is so nice. The property managers, Bryn and Samantha, looked after us as well. When we asked for proper plastic beverage glasses for use around the pool, we got them that day. ( you never use glass around any pool). All in all a great vacation. We are so looking forward to coming down next year. Thanks to Bryn and Samantha Betty and Bobbie for being so patient with us ( there were some minor issues) and making our stay a happy one.

Perfect villa for our Florida visit

  • 5 of 5

The description of the villa was spot on and the layout worked perfectly for us and our 2 children (8) and (11). The level of cleanliness was great throughout and the villa had a lovely homely feel. I can't imagine how a hotel can compare in this regard.

The location of the villa was great for getting to the various parks, but also for getting to the shops, whether they be the outlet stores or more general supermarkets and local restaurants.

The communication from the owners was always very prompt and helpful and the management people were also very helpful.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa - we had an amazing time!

Perfect all round location

  • 5 of 5

Everything we had come to expect from the description of the property and location we found to be true.

Most helpful owner and local management office. Easy access to all the holiday venues and parks coupled with a quiet rural retreat after a day's entertainment. Champions Gate facilities also proved to be a real advantage for food and fuel. We would have no hesitation in returning.
