About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

There are so many Villas to choose from in Orlando, but what makes our Villa different from the others?

Usually the answer is location, location, location but with our home it is not only our location (only 10 minutes to Disney) but also crucially that our beautiful home is so private and not overlooked!

The best just got better! In addition to all of the wonderful features we have just added a stunning new outdoor covered seating area. This new area utilises the space outside the Kitchen sliders and we have installed two all weather wicker Sofas measuring 9 feet x 8 feet with a corner seat and additionally an all weather wicker Coffee Table for drinks. So if you don't fancy lying out in the heat on our sun loungers, you can now retreat to the Seating Area for shade and a snooze, or in the evening it will be a fabulously popular place to have a drink and watch the Disney Fireworks!

The very last thing you need when you arrive at your dream holiday Villa full of expectation is to have another Villa backing directly on to you with the resulting lack of privacy and noise at all hours of the day from their Pool. That is what makes our home so special. There is NO house behind you, just our huge extended Deck, beautiful Pool, huge 6 foot Spa, huge Gas BBQ with 6 burners and Searer setting and a stunning view of a Conservation Area and Lake with views of the Disney Fireworks from the Magic Kingdom every night.

Add to this that there are only 58 homes in our gated Community and you can see why The Abbey is so popular. Nothing but nothing compares to stepping from the downstairs Master on to our Deck at 7.45 a.m. to watch the sky full of Hot Air Balloons lazily drifting over our Conservation Area!! It truly has to be seen to be believed!!

When you then consider the standard of our Management Team, the incredible list of equipment such as solid Oak furniture throughout the ground floor, two King Bedrooms, one Queen Bedroom, 2 themed Twin Bedrooms one Disney, the other Angry Birds, new 50 inch LED TV with HD channels plus 6 other T.V's, Dressed Windows, Games Room with Pool Table, Air Hockey, Foosball and Table Tennis, Broadband Internet PC, Wi-Fi, Home Cinema System, Spa, Balcony, Gas BBQ, DVD Players, Valuables Safe, CCTV in Community, Ceiling Fans throughout and the fact that we so close to all attractions, then you can see why the same guests return year after year. It is possible to watch the entire Fireworks show (which starts at 10.00 p.m.) in the Magic Kingdom, walk down Main Street, USA, take the Monorail to the Car Park, take the Mickey Train to your car section, find your car and drive back to our house and be in the Spa with a Cold Beer by 11.00 p.m.....I know because I have done it!!!

Every year when we visit Orlando, our Villa gets better and better! We reinvest in it every year so that it constantly improves. We now have a feature solid Oak Sleigh Bed in the downstairs Master along with solid oak living and dining room furniture. We also have a wonderful Community clubhouse with huge community pool, Gym, Tennis Courts and even a Beach Volley Ball court. We have added Free calls to all of the U.S. and Canada. Our reason for constantly upgrading is to ensure that our guests return again and again!

So, why don't you treat yourself to one of the top 5% Villas in Orlando at a very reasonable price....we want you and your family to have the vacation of a lifetime!

'The proof of the pudding is the eating' as they say in Ireland so here are just two of the countless Testimonials that we have received both from American, Canadian and U.K. families.

Hi Ross, I think I have to say that out of the seven or eight times I've been to Orlando (benefits of working for an airline!), staying at your villa made it the most enjoyable trip! It really is a lovely place and your website shows everything but until you get there, you don't realise how great it is. The directions were perfect as well. I know the area pretty well but after a long flight, it was good to have such precise instructions. I've already recommended it to a couple of people and they are having a look at the site. Forsdick Family, Sussex, U.K.

Hi Ross, I have been meaning to write you. The house was more than your pictures say. You should really get some better photos done, they really do not show the size of the house. We walked in and stood and said WOW! Everyone was so pleased. We had a wonderful time and would love to rent the house the next time we come down. I will also tell family about your house. We truly had a great time. Happy Holidays. Nordstrom Family, Mt. Bethel, PA, USA

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 The Abbey at 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!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Vacation House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house!! Plenty of space for 3 separate families! The pool and patio was awesome, we couldn't get the kids out of it!! Enclosed patio kept out the bugs and did give a view of the fireworks at night! Location to the Disney parks was great! About 15-20 minutes to each one, super easy! We couldn't have asked for better people to communicate with, they always responded quickly and were very helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone!!

Well equipped and spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. Much space to join together or to have your own time. Games room was wonderful but since we had awesome weather we enjoyed the pool, spa, the clubhouse and walking around the neighbourhood. House was close to I-4 and US 27, which are the main arteries to all attractions. Enjoy a meal at Miller’s Ale House but be sure to go early for dinner or you will wait. We will certainly book to stay at this home again!

The Perfect Vacation Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! When we arrived we were amazed at how spacious the house was-6 adults, 3 children and 2 pups and had tons of room to spare. The layout of the house made it easy to get ready in the morning to head out to Disney. The property was very clean and well maintained. Game room was a hit! The pool was wonderful after a long day at the parks. You can see fireworks from Disney from the pool area at night and hot air balloons in the morning. Publix and restaurants located within 2 miles of the villa (Millers Ale House was one of our favorite restaurants). It only took us about 15-20 minutes to get to Disney! This definitely felt like home away from home. Ross responded quickly to any questions. I highly recommend this villa. We hope to return next year. Thank you so much Ross!

Perfect Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

June/July 2017

Jon/Trish R

We rent a vacation home in Florida once a year and this one has been by far the best one yet. Very spacious and close to everything. It takes about a 15 to 20 minutes to get to Disney parks due to traffic. About 10 minutes to a Publix , Restaurants and a Walgreens. A perfect outdoor patio and pool area with bbq that you can also enjoy Disney fireworks from at night. I read on a previous review that stairgates didn't work, we had a puppy and a little one so we used the stairgates and they worked perfectly fine. Also the washer and dryer work perfectly as well. I was able to get all my laundry done and took everything back home clean. Ross was very easy to deal with. Responded quickly to all inquiries and emails. I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends. Thank You Ross!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at this property and we continue to love it! The location is great and the neighborhood is quiet. Many conveniences close by and the area has grown with each, drug stores, restaurants and more. The house itself is large and in great shape. Pool, hot tub and outdoor space are great places to start your morning or end your day after a long day and one of the near by theme parks. Any minor issues we have had while staying have always been addressed by the property manager in a timely manner.
