A lovely well presented holiday villa.

  • 5 of 5

I have only one reservation and that is the pool heat was not working for half of our one week stay. We complained about it on our first day and when it was attended to it was of a too low temperature. The following week we stayed at a property on the same road and there was a much more enjoyable pool temperature.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately pool heaters do break down like all mechanical equipment. When our management company were advised by the guests they responded quickly and had the equipment repaired. We can only apologise to our guests for any inconvenience. Since the incident we had a review of the pool heater and have decided to have it replaced. As a result we have invested a considerable sum in a solar pool heating system which hopefully will guarantee future guests the pool water temperature they expect.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in "The Shire". The house, HVAC, pool, furniture, linens, appliances and electronics are all top notch. It was spotlessly clean and ready for occupancy when we arrived. The house is located in a gated community with tree lined streets and is convenient to grocery shopping and restaurants. Travel time to Epcot in Disney is about 1/2 hour. Parking for more than one car at the house might be a problem.

Wonderful Vacation Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 11 nights in this well appointed home. I was making good to my grandkids for a trip to Disney World and was so happy to rent the home with the pool. We were 3 adults and 3 boys, 10, 10, & 12. The house was so spacious, lots of privacy when needed yet lots of fun for the kids. They enjoyed the games room, WII gaming and of course the pool. Everything was super clean and the 2 master suites were very convenient for myself and my daughter and her husband. The location was incredible for our trips to all the parks and it never took us more than 15 minutes to go anywhere. The Champion's Gate Mall is close by for groceries and some dining. Very quiet neighbourhood and sure beat the hotel scene. Richard was great to work with and always answered all emails to satisfy any questions. Any minor details were taken care of professionally and promptly. I will certainly return to this exact home in Davenport..I saved money on the entire trip by renting this home instead of staying in a hotel room and had a lot more fun.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us, Richard.

Beautiful and well equipped property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in June 2016, there were 3 adults and two children. From the moment you turn into the Westhaven estate you get the feeling you are entering an upscale development and the property certainly doesn't disappoint. Backing on to a nature reserve the pool area is both private and well laid out with a huge patio area that makes an ideal place for relaxing and listening to the wildlife each evening after a busy day in the parks.

The house has four very good size bedroooms and the master suite has a good size balcony that offers some lovely views of the nature reserve. We found the house to be very well equipped with good quality appliances and we didn't want for anything. Eating out is a little limited in the immediate area, however, there are a couple of new restaurants being built in championsgate that will be a welcome addition to the Chillis thats already there. Most evening we would jump on the I4 north and take the first exit on to the 429 that takes you up to the 192, we found this to be a great little short cut taking no more than 15 mins to get us to the 192 where theres a great selection of restaurants (429 is toll road but its well worth 75 cents).

Only 5 mins from the the I4 the house also offers excellent access to all the parks and attractions.

There's no doubt that when we make our next trip to Orlando will be enquiring about the availability of this property before we consider any other.

This is a very nice home, everything worked out very nice for our golf vacation..

  • 4 of 5

Everything about the house was as expected, it was very nice with the four bedrooms & four baths...(everyone had their own, no waiting) We used the house as a home base for traveling around the Orlando/Kissimmee area, golfing 36 holes per day, so our time in the house was limited from early evenings, to early mornings.. There are lots of golf courses in the area to choose from, so this makes the house a very nice home base. The BBQ was a nice touch as we used it for a couple of meals, while sipping on a beer, going over our scorecards..

Richard was very easy to contact prior to our stay, & we had no reason to contact him during our stay, as everything worked well..

We, for some reason, could not figure out how to use the printer to print out our "Tee Time Vouchers" changes from "TeetimesUSA" (very good company, by the way) but that was more likely a "user" problem.. lol

If Richard would have us, I could see using his place again for our next year's "Brothers Golf Vacation"

Thanks..

Al
