About the property

Villa in West Haven, Davenport, Florida, USA - 10 - 15 Minutes Drive To Disney World

Our luxury villa with private pool and spa in Orlando is in a great location, situated within 10 - 15 minutes drive from Disney World in The Abbey at Westhaven. Shops, restaurants and a petrol station are all within a few minutes drive. Very convenient access to the I-4 to get quickly to the major attractions and nearby is US27 with more shops and restaurants. The gated community of The Abbey at West Haven is one of the most sought after locations in Central Florida. It is approached by a wide, lushly landscaped main boulevard lined with palm trees. Villa guests have access to the community centre, which has a large communual pool, tennis courts, gym, volleyball court and table tennis. The community is located just off Ronald Regan Parkway between US27 and the I-4 in a beautiful area which is quiet, but convenient for all the parks and attraction.

March 2016 - updates to the villa include a total repaint of the villa interior with feature walls in the lounge and king suite, repainted balcony deck and railings off the queen suite, a new larger outside dining table & new pool heater.

August 2016 - The land at the rear is now being prepared for building work, which while sounds bad is probably a blessing in disguise. Currently the developer is moving earth around (well sand really, as Florida is just a big sand dune!) and putting in the services (drainage, utilities etc.) The land will have vacation homes built on it and 2 ponds. The developer has installed a fabric fence to stop dust and shield the villas from the work. We are lucky as our villa is on a corner plot and the pool deck and lanai sit below a bank which shields the view while you enjoy the pool and lanai. The new home plots are to be 30 feet back from the boundary with the Abbey. The schedule is unknown at this point but we will keep updating this advert with progress.

We have installed a camera that looks out at the rear of the property over the top of the pool screen so that we can keep an eye on developments. We offer our potential guests access to this live stream upon request. It is purely to show the development and we ensure it does not affect the privacy of guests staying in the villa.

Update - Feb 2018 - The homes at the rear are not vacation rentals but are residential. The buildings directly behind our villa are nearly complete and we are going to look at some landscaping options to provide some privacy of our pool and deck.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is on a prominent corner plot in a small community within West Haven. It is a very quiet community with some of the villas being residential and some being short term rentals like ours. The open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area with its cathedral ceiling is so bright and airy. The upstairs queen suite has a balcony overlooking the rear of the property. The pool deck is huge, faces south and there is a shady lanai with a ceiling fan to keep cool under or to dine under.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kyron O Gorman - February 18, 2013, 7:53 pm

8.1.2013 to 29.1.2013

Congratulations to the owners and House Management Company on maintaining such a very high standard.

The south Facing pool is brilliant and paying that little bit extra for heated pool during the winter months was perfect this home with electric heated pool means warm water. We have rented many heated pools and we are told they are solar heated which is nothing compared to Villa Kristall. Do put the cover on the pool at night if the night temp is going below 10 C it helps.

Everything about this house is comfort and my Mum 80 was shocked with how well kept and how clean the house is.

When renting a Florida Villa it is sometimes worrying that it might be a scam, Well I can tell you its not. This house is better than the web site.

Wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Kristall. The house was fully supplied with all the necessities for a great holiday. The management were great to deal. We had a couple of minor issues that Karen and Dave responded to immediately.

Thanks for sharing this lovely home with us.

Very Nice Home. Could use some comfort updates.

  • 4 of 5

This house was nicely located between the amusement parks that we wanted to visit. It also had a wonderfully heated pool. Our kids were able to swim even when it was dark and 60degrees outside because the pool was warm enough. There were also plenty of towels for our family of 6 which I appreciated. It was a clean house, which is important of course. The only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars is that it was missing some things that other rental homes we have been to had. The biggest thing was the king bed. It was very hard. I am a big fan of firm mattresses, but this one was hard. I would recommend to the owner to get a 2 inch memory foam topper and I think it would help a ton! Also, the kitchen was not particularly well stocked for such a large house. There was no large stock pot or large pan to make half the meals I was planning. We ended up having to buy frozen dishes you could just throw in the oven since the pans weren’t available to cook in. The house also had no dish soap, laundry soap, garbage bags, paper towels, etc. Those are commonly not provided in rental houses, but those that do provide these things generally deserve 5 stars in my opinion.

Also, future renters should take note that the construction of several houses directly behind the house on the hill will eliminate the current privacy of the pool, unless the owners plants some very tall plants/trees to block their view of the pool.

So in general this house was very nice, we had a good week, and if you rent it you will not be terribly disappointed by any means. But there may be a couple small things that irritate you. Particularly the uncomfortable master bed. We liked the price, the location, and the heated pool, which is why we chose this house, and for those things we were not disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we welcome all suggestions to ensure that we provide the best experience for our guests. We are sorry that you found the mattress too firm for your taste. Mattress choice is a very personal thing and it's very difficult to accommodate all tastes. The lack of stock pot or pan surprises us as we definitely had these in the kitchen. We do provide some starter toiletries such as; hand soap, a small shower gel and toilet paper in each bathroom. The bin in the kitchen always has one bag in it and a spare under the sink. We can only apologise if these weren't in place. It's a shame that you didn't contact our property manager about any of this because we could have had them sort this out for you immediately. The construction work at the rear has progressed rapidly and the houses are now nearing completion. The houses are single family dwellings and they are not able to have pools built at the rear of them. We agree that we need to do something, and we have been speaking to the landscaping company that look after the community over the last year about options but have held off doing anything until we have seen the outlook once the properties are finished. We are due to go out to the villa shortly and will reassess the situation and will invest in some landscaping. We are pleased that you were able to have a super vacation at our villa and thank you for your business.

Great Villa with great size pool area and Lanai

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Kristall. It’s in a great location just 5 minutes from the I4, which makes it easy to get anywhere and close to all the Disney parks. It’s in a gorgeous, quiet gated community with access to the clubhouse and tennis courts which we had lots of fun at. The villa itself is very spacious and has plenty of room for everyone. Our favourite part of the villa is definitely the pool area which is a great size. There is so much space!! It has a huge Lanai which goes from one side of the villa to the other. This is great for sitting out at night when it is or has been raining as the seats are always kept dry (and the washing lol 😂?). Also with the pool area being so big it is adequate for big families and there is enough seats for everyone. There is a large table and another smaller table also. We are a family of 6 and have previously stayed in numerous villas (advertised for 8 people) where there has only been a small round table outside with 4 chairs (no good for 6 + people). The Pool and Spa are a great size too. I would definitely recommend this villa. The owners of the villa have been very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!! Thank you Lee & Alison

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other villas within the Abbey but this was our favourite. We had a fantastic time, the villa had everything we needed, the pool was amazing and the children (7&4) never wanted to get out. The spa was a lovely addition after a long day in the parks. Great communication with the owners and the management company. Would recommend to anyone looking for a villa. The location was perfect and close to everything we needed. We will be back in a couple of years!
