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 & a mini putting green 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 TV, DVD, 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 resort community is a peaceful country-like setting with well manicured palm tree lined boulevards.

Davenport 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

Just to let you know that we had a lovely stay at Palm Villa, a perfect base from which to take the grandchildren to the theme parks.

I find it difficult to suggest anything that needs adding or changing. A great stay at a lovely house and location and would hope to have the opportunity to return in the future.

Exactly as described - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic holiday in this lovely property. Communication with owners was brilliant and the detailed information sent through (including some useful hints and tips for our stay) was excellent. Location couldn't have been better as we could be in Disney within just 10 mins. Pool was lovely and just the perfect temperature despite us experiencing a few very cold days ( by Florida standards). Would thoroughly recommend staying in this lovely property.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house December 16-23 2017. This trip was a Christmas present to our kids. This was the first time I had used VRBO to find a rental house out of state so I was a little nervous on how everything would go. The house was amazing! I don't feel the pictures do it justice. Ann was great to work with and responded very quickly to any questions I had. The house is conveniently located and I loved that it was in a gated community. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a house near Disney/Universal.

Nov 28 - Dec 12 2017. Amazing villa, Amazing pool, Amazing holiday, Amazing owners

  • 5 of 5

Yes, amazing just about describes everything. Ann was so helpful from the time I made my first Enquiry, all through the holiday, even offering a late checkout as the villa was available on the day of our departure. Much appreciated. We returned home yesterday; the same day received notification that our deposit had been refunded. Thank you Ann. We have stayed at a few villas in Florida and this is our favourite. It ticked ALL the boxes. We walked in and WOW, the villa is even better than it shows in the photos. It is huge, spotlessly clean, with comfy furnishings. Out to the lanai and again WOW what a pool. We had paid for pool heat and it was perfect. We enjoyed the pool many days. The water stayed warm even when temp dropped to 44f at night the last few days of our holiday. We enjoyed the wildlife coming to say hello to us every morning. We are outdoor people, but back to the villa. The double rooms and bathrooms are so spacious. The beds are very comfy and we always had a good nights sleep. Only 2 of us on holiday here, but used both bedrooms as got a bit hot in the front bedroom one night. The kitchen has everything you could need. The microwave was ‘sparking’ when we tried to use it. I contacted Ann, who arranged for the management team to check it. Ann advised me it had died and it was replaced the next day. Very efficient. The washing machine and tumble dryer were the best we’ve had in a villa and washed/dried our clothes perfectly. The games room was fun. The pool table is not entirely flat, but that didn’t bother us as didn’t have much spare time to spend playing. The location of the villa was perfect for us; a little further out than we usually stay, but the extra 5/10 minutes journey to the parks was worth it for the high standard of Sanctuary at West Haven. Always felt safe here. Not been to Florida so far into December before, but found it a wonderful time to visit. The parks are so festive, but to top the lot, Celebration was in a class of its own. They really do know how to do Christmas. We walked around taking in the wonder of the decorated houses, after enjoying the festivities and ‘snow’ in the centre. Absolutely stunning. It is also an easy journey to St Petes from the villa. We fished here from Merry Pier for $20, which included rods and bait; caught some large fish here. Very exciting as I had never fished before! Then watched the sunset before returning to the villa. Thank you Ann and Henry. We hope we can return in 2019.
