About Mr & Mrs Skipper

Our family (myself, husband and 2 kids) live in the UK and purchased our property as a second home because we love the sunshine, water and theme parks. It was already furnished and we lived with that until it was time to refurnish which was last year when we retrieved our home from a long term let. We have invested heavily and tried to make the property as comfortable and as homely as possible. We spent Xmas there and we had all the comforts of our own home but with sunshine and a pool.

Mr & Mrs Skipper purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mr & Mrs Skipper chose West Haven

We chose our property because it had the best layout for our family and those we like to share it with. It is in an excellent central location and suitable for us to travel all over and not just close to the parks where our children love to go. We love watersports and go wakeboarding, wakesurfing and to the beach when we come to Florida as our children are growing up we don't do the parks as much.

What makes this villa unique

Our property isn't just one of a portfolio of standard interior properties. We didn't buy the cheapest furnishings and fittings, we just bought what we liked (which isn't always the best choice when renting) and what was comfortable. If anything at all is lacking in our villa we listen to our guests and try to include anything that we can to make the experience even better. We have a superb management company and in the unlikely event of something going wrong during your stay, they are super responsive and can handle pretty much any problem or enquiry meaning that you should have nothing to worry about at all during your stay.

A perfect base for Disney & a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at West Haven - thank you so much to Mr & Mrs Skipper for sharing their fantastic holiday home with us.

The house was in a great location, in excellent condition and with an ideal layout for our family (grandparents, us and 3 young children). Very obviously a loved family home and not just a holiday let, we felt very comfortable here. The pool was fantastic - so much so my very swimming-averse eldest child couldn’t get enough of it, much to our delight. We would love to come back!

If I had any suggestion for improvement it would be that the highchair wasn’t ideal being attached to a chair, and a free standing one (just a simple Ikea highchair for example) would have been much better and suit families with younger children more. Also, we did feel that the floor wasn’t as clean as we might have expected (perhaps more noticeable to us with a crawling baby), although the rest of the house seemed to have been very well cleaned in preparation for our arrival, with the exception of the oven which we couldn’t get to grips with without generating a lot of smoke?!!

These minor points aside, I would highly recommend this wonderful house to anyone looking for a place to spend their holiday around Orlando, thank you again!

Spacious and modern villa in lovely gated community

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a fantastic 2 week break visiting the Disney parks and shopping. This was the first time we have stayed in this villa and I looked at a lot of properties before deciding to stay here. Upon arrival we knew that we had made the right decision as the villa was very modern inside with good facilities and very clean. I really liked the feel of the gated community and thought that the location was ideal for us. The next time we come to Florida we will definitely try to book this villa again

It was perfect for what we needed,

  • 4 of 5

It was perfect for what we needed. Having all the rooms kind of set away from each other was nice and having 3 bathrooms was great. Loved the pool and the space. We will be back.

Perfect getaway from Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 13 days in this house in January 2018 and loved it.

House is in a quiet access controlled neighborhood which meant peace and quiet when we wanted. Well equipped and spacious.

We did spend few hours in the pool every day and the pool heater made it feel like mid summer even during the coldest days.

All communication with owners was fast and positive. We do recommend this property and hope to rent again in near future.

Pool heating is an additional cost and depend on the time of the year. During winter months it costs a lot more to heat the pool than during summer obviously and this is reflected in our pool heat rates so it's totally fair to you.
Please contact us if you wish to have the pool heated so we can update your quote.
However, in our opinion, it's not needed from April/May through to about November.
