About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 bathrooms. Sunny Private Pool, Games Room, Conservation Area, Wi-Fi

A well equipped four bedroomed villa, with the two queen sized bedrooms both being en-suite. Ideal for two families sharing. Fully air conditioned, with a private pool overlooking an extended lawn area and peaceful conservation land beyond this, which contains a lake and small island that is home to many attractive birds during much of the year. The pool can be heated, whenever required (recommended from October through April), and there is a covered outside dining area, with a quality bronze aluminium table and chairs and a ceiling fan for added comfort. A Weber charcoal barbecue and plenty of comfortable quality chairs/ sun loungers are also provided.

There is a large garage/games room, which has air hockey, pool, table football, dart board for any children (or adults) in the party. It also has a exercise bike & 2 baby buggies ( single and double).

Inside there is a comfortable, carpeted living area with three sofas. The living area overlooks the pool and has a large screen smart TV, DVD player, stereo and telephone.

There is parking on the drive for 2 full size cars.

The Sanctuary at Westhaven is one of the most exclusive, peaceful, GATED resort communities in the Orlando area. It is within 2 minutes of I-4, 2 exits south of the Disney main entrance (10 - 15 minutes away). The surrounding area is rich with restaurants, shopping, walk-in medical care, pharmacies, banks and ATM. It is ideal for avid golfers with some incredible courses nearby, such as the Greg Norman designed ChampionsGate. The Champions Gate Village nearby has expanded over the last few years with many varied restaurants, cafes and bars. The resort community is a peaceful country-like setting with well manicured palm tree lined boulevards. Champions Gate is ideally situated close to Orlando attractions, Davenport and Kissimmee restaurants and entertainment with easy access to either coast (less than 1 hour to either coast). Come and enjoy our villa and relax.... well after a hard day at the Theme park, golf course or shops.

Why Ann and Henry Gorton chose West Haven

We have always wanted a holiday home & Florida holds such special memories for us as a family. We have been coming to this area for over 20 years & there are still so many things we haven't got round to yet. The villa is the perfect place to be, peaceful, very private yet so near the action.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa is perfect for two small families sharing. The adults/parents both get their own en-suite bathroom and there are two twin bedrooms for the children. Our reviewers often comment on how clean they find our Villa. We are continually improving in order to keep the Villa to a high standard. Last year we added new lounge and dining furniture. We have tried to include all the extra things that you would have at home for the added comfort of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excelente opción en Orlando. La propiedad esta muy bien cuidada con todo lo necesario para una excelente estadia, la pileta muy linda, juegos para los chicos, amplias habitaciones, toallas para baño y para pileta, cocina con todo el equipamiento necesario, esta inclusive mucho mejor que lo que se ve en la fotos. el barrio es cerrado, super tranquilo en una zona muy linda (a 20 minutos de Disney, universal y shopping) con un supermercado muy cerca (si o si hay que tener automóvil) los propietarios se portaron muy muy bien totalmente recomendable

Absolutely perfect! Great location and excellent villa, spotless and comfortable, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Palm Villa and we are already wondering when we can go back again! The villa is in a scenic, quiet location with only a 20-min drive to Disney. The villa is spotless and comfortable with everything you could need. Nearest grocery store (Publix) is only 5-mins away. The owners are friendly and very helpful, can’t recommend this villa enough, we love it!

Perfect peaceful villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We knew from the other reviews that this villa would be great, but even so it exceeded our expectations in every way. The villa is very comfortably furnished - a true home from home that you don’t often get on holiday - spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, from the well stocked kitchen cupboards to the garage games room and Disney editions of Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit when you’re just too tired to go out again! The estate name Sanctuary is very apt - this gated community is clean and beautifully kept and the villa itself isn’t overlooked but instead looks out across lush green lawns and tropical plants. It really did feel like a peaceful retreat to gratefully return to after a hard day hitting the theme parks! The location is the best of any villa I’ve stayed in in Orlando so far - just a few minutes from the main interstate 4 that leads to the Disney and Universal parks, meaning that for the first time ever we didn’t keep getting lost! Disney parks are around 15-20 minutes and Universal is usually around 40 mins although can be up to an hour in peak season traffic. The communication with Ann and Henry was great throughout and they very kindly allowed us to check out late for our afternoon flight. I can’t praise their lovely villa highly enough and hope we will get the chance to stay there again one day.

Lovely homely property in a tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

A very peaceful and relaxing holiday. Perfect for a small group of friends or family.

Well equipped and the owners had thought of everything you could need.

A lovely pool overlooking the green space surrounding the lake, with plenty of wildlife to observe including Sand Cranes, rabbits, birds and squirrels. Ideal location for Disney, restaurants and supermarkets. Straight forward drive from the airport with good instructions from Ann and Henry.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Rental was easy to find, excellant instructions and great contact with owners. The place was very clean and well maintained. The heated pool was great for a relaxing day hanging out and it even has pool lights for an evening dip. We noticed a small crack in the coffee pot and the caretakers were very responsive and prompt at replacing it. Stores and places to eat out are close by, and tons of things to do a short drive away. Deposit was returned within just a few days after our return. Would definately rent from again.

villa stay in May.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa in May and loved it, everything we needed was there and we

enjoyed the pool area too as the weather was very hot. We would definitely like to stay again, and recommend the villa as 5 stars!

Thank you, the Welsh family.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don’t do this lovely home justice, it is a beautiful villa. We thought the pool was much bigger than the photos look. We paid for pool heating and it was lovely and warm, we used to pool cover to keep the heat in when we weren’t using it. The villa had everything we could need and more. We really appreciated that we had lots of towels, both pool and bathroom. We liked the location and felt very safe. We had fun in the games room but I think it may be time for a new pool table, there’s a big dip in the middle so not really useable. We found the lounge area really comfortable for relaxing later in the evening.

Unfortunately we missed our connection at Atlanta so arrived very, very late to the villa and had nothing, perhaps a small welcome pack would be useful with just a few basics for the first morning.

Very easy booking and very prompt response, great communication from the owners and very quick reimbursement of the security deposit.

5* We would definitely recommend!
