About Mrs Dympna Tuck

I live in the Southern part of the UK with my husband and teenage son. We thoroughly enjoy Florida, and work hard during the year, so that we can enjoy our trips out to the villa.

Why Mrs Dympna Tuck chose West Haven

We bought this property as it was the perfect size for both us and our renters. We fell in love with the view and tranquility from the first moment we viewed it.

What makes this villa unique

We love the view, peacefulness, and extra large deck. The villa is a fantastic size for a single family or two families holidaying together.

Fabulous larger than average sun deck

  • 5 of 5

As returning guests we always feel at home straight away in this villa. It has everything you need with the added attraction of a fabulous sun deck, which is much larger than the average deck and lovely views. The villa is always spotless, situated on a quiet gated community with direct links to the I4 & H27. Thank you Dympna once again for allowing us to stay in your lovely villa. C Bennett

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this lovely villa, we were lucky enough to spend four weeks here during August. The house is immaculate and spacious with the best sun deck & pool in the area. The location is nice and relaxing with plenty of wildlife and within easy reach of the I-4 and Orlando attractions. I highly recommend booking this villa. Thank you Dympna for all your help.
