About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom, Overlooking Conservation area

Our home is a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom villa with vaulted ceilings for an open spacious feeling. There are 2 master bedrooms both of which are tastefully furnished. One of the bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other has a king size bed with a hand made mattress. These bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms which is perfect for 2 couples as there is no fighting over who gets the big bathroom ! The bathrooms have a toilet, double 'his and hers' sinks, a very large walk in shower and even hairdriers so you don't need to bring your own.

Also in each of the bedrooms are walk in closets (one equipped with a safe for your important personal belongings) and both have tv's (one of which is a 50 inch plasma), cable tv and DVD players. The two other bedrooms are laid out with 2 single beds in each and are again tastefully decorated. These bedrooms also have tv's, cable tv and DVD players. The third bathroom is shared by the 2 other bedrooms and has a toilet, sink unit and shower over the bath. The living room has a 60 inch plasma tv, blu ray player, surround sound system, xbox 360 (with selection of games) and high definition cable tv which allows the viewing of live English premier league football games.

In the living room there are two 3 seater sofas, a 2 seater 'love seat' and a large foot rest to make tv viewing even more relaxing !

The garage of the property has been converted to a games room and has a 7ft pool table and a 7ft air hockey table. In this room there is also a 2 seater sofa, a fan to keep you cool and a stereo system to play your cd's or listen to the radio on.

When you want a day away from the parks just to relax, the pool area of the home has a huge sundeck and is South East facing so gets the sun all day. The pool also has a fence down both sides, is not overlooked and backs on to a conservation area for ultimate privacy when sunbathing. There is a BBQ for guest use and a pool cover to keep the heat in the pool at night.

The home also has a free high speed (20Mb) Fibre Optic secure wireless internet connection as well as free local calls, free national calls and free calls to Canada.

For 24-Emergency response the property managers live minutes from the home. They are only a phone call away and are always on hand should anything unforeseen occur during your stay.

Why Mark Mclean chose Davenport

We looked at approx 20 homes when we first set out to buy a place in Fl. This was the first one we saw and the one we came back to. The Sanctuary is a quiet gated community within easy reach of all that Florida has to offer. As soon as we walked into the property we felt at home. We have made upgrades year on year (some based on guests comments/requirements) since purchasing the home and guests comment on the cleanliness and the amenities available to them. We love the home, we have invested in the home and we hope you love it too.

What makes this villa unique

When we were looking to buy our home, one of the biggest things we were looking for was privacy and all day sunshine. We purchased this home as it provided both. The home overlooks a conservation area and there is a fence down either side of the pool. We have landscaped borders and palm trees that also provide another level of privacy. The sun shines from morning until evening and the huge pool deck is ideal for sun bathing. We also wanted that 'home from home' feel and that is what guests comment on most. The home has all the amenities you would require for family vacation and with the large (60 inch) screen tv, surround sound system, Blu ray player and comfortable furniture, movie nights become a real pleasure.

Some comments from our valued guests;

Had quite a bad start to our holiday as the plane was delayed but when we walked through the door of your villa we were totally overwhelmed - It had everything we could possibly need plus more - We have stayed in other villas in the Kissimmee area in the past but none of them compare to yours -

Had a great 2 weeks, the villa was great. Nice to come to clean 'home from home' property. Being able to sunbathe morning to night is a big plus for us over some of the other villas we have rented in the past -

Our trip was absolutely fantastic, if we would have written a script, it couldn’t have been better. Your place was a big part of that, it was nice to come “”home” after a day at the parks, cook our own meals, catch the NHL playoffs on the comfortable couch -

This is our third year staying and it was great as always.

The changes and upgrades were perfect -

As usual the the villa was perfect for our family needs.

We look forward to renting from you in the coming years -

We've had a fantastic holiday here in Florida and the villa has been perfect. We've felt right at home here and don't want to leave.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased that we chose to stay at The Sanctuary Villa in Westhaven. It was only 5 minutes away from the I-4 which made it really easy to get to Disney and Universal. It took us no longer than 15 minutes to get to Disney and approximately 25 minutes to Universal.

Champions Gate was 2 minutes away where there is a petrol station, Publix, Millers & Chilli's amongst other things.

The villa itself was really big with lots of space and very well equipped with everything that you could need. There was also lots of seating space so nobody felt cramped. The pool area outside was lovely and clean and felt very safe. We really enjoyed the games room. The villa is on a gated community so had that extra safe feel to it.

We really enjoyed our time at the Sanctuary and would highly recommend it to others. The owners were really helpful and gave some great advice, a pleasure to deal with.

We will hopefully be visiting again soon.

Owner's Response: Hi and many thanks for taking the time to write the great review, very much appreciated. The proximity to the attractions is a big plus for our guests and we are pleased you found it convenient. The development at Champions Gate is certainly taking off with more and more retail units being constructed. Having plenty of space for families is something that we looked for when choosing the villa so we are pleased you found it to your liking. The games room is something guests really enjoy too as you say. It was a pleasure to deal with you and we hope you will visit us again, take care and thanks again.

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

From walking trough the front door of Mark's house upon arrival until our very last few moments in the villa, we felt as though we were ready to move in permanently. This house is spacious, very well equipped, well kept by a helpful management company... What more could one ask for?

The villa is conveniently located, only minutes from the I-4 and Championsgate shopping center. So easy to get to Disney and all of the major attractions in the area.

I stayed here a week with my husband and 8 year old daughter, and we spent almost all the time we had after sightseeing in the pool and around the patio area. We all enjoyed the lovely bedrooms, family area with huge TV (we're not used to this size in Europe, wow!), entertainment in the garage, the kitchen. Mark has provided everything to make his guests feel at home, right down to video game entertainment and lots of fresh towels and linnens.

We arrived after guests who had stayed here for a longer period of time and found some mould on the bottom edge of the shower in one of the ensuites. This was very quickly resolved after a single phone call to the management company.

I cannot express how much we loved our stay at the villa and how we are looking forward to another opportunity to travel to the area and be able to stay here again. Thank you so much Mark!

Owner's Response: Hi and thank you so much for your review, it is very much appreciated. We often get comments on the villa being like a home from home and that's exactly what we hope for. The pool and deck do provide a lovely place to relax after a day at the parks and getting the sun all day really makes a difference we find. I am glad to hear the management company dealt with you professionally and speedily, we do get comments on their friendly approach. We would love to have you back again so please just get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Many thanks again, take care.

Fantastic Villa, Great location

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable, spacious and well equipped villa located in a quiet and peaceful location. Only a few minutes from the I4 and from a supermarket and small selection of restaurants at Championsgate. Owner couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. We would return in a heartbeat!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in your lovely villa.

The pool deck is great, With loads of space and ample seating and tables.

My husband and son really enjoyed the entertainment system in the villa, very impressive!

I especially loved the fact that both master bedrooms also had master bathrooms, great for two families, but it was also great for our son.

The villa is in an excellent location, close to the I-4, making it easy to get to Disney and just about anywhere.

We had a lovely time and would definitely return in the future.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have worked with Mark for a few years and I know he likes gadgets and things great for kids and teenagers so that was why we booked his villa. The villa is very close to the interstate 4 and also highway 27 Publix and Walgreen's are very close, and also Denny’s and Perkins are very close on highway 27 for a quick meal. The villa has all the mod cons Xbox Blu-ray player large screen TV high speed internet. Sanctuary is on a safe gated community for added security my two teenage sons loved all the gadgets and felt home from home we never heard them when we got back to the villa. Disney is 15 to 20 minute drive from the villa on interstate 4 we loved the location and going back in July 2017. The only disappointing thing was having to leave the villa to go home back to the UK and start saving to come back.

Owner's Response: Hi and many thanks for taking the time to write the review, much appreciated. Glad that the home entertainment equipment suited the family, as you say we view it as important for the nights in the villa so it's great that you got the use out of it ! The villa is indeed close by the main areas of interest and with the impending Champions Gate Town Centre development there will be even more on the door step. Many thanks for booking to come back again, we look forward to having you back. Take care and thanks again.

Absolutely what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property, and we will be back!! From booking to departure and follow up, Mark and Karen were quick in communication and the process was so smooth!!

The property was spacious, clean, and very well-appointed. It is close to the attractions, and when returning after a long day, it was wonderful to be able to relax in the pool or just spread out and do our own thing without tripping over each other. It was nice to be able cook at "home" too!

We were so glad to stay here, and we recommend it without hestitation. Thanks for opening your home to us!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to post the review. It was a genuine pleasure dealing with you and its great to hear you and the family had a good time at the villa. The open plan nature of the living area is often something that we get comments about but also how the place feels like 'home from home' so thank you for noticing and commenting on it. The area around the villa is developing all the time so if you do come back you can be sure there will be more to see and do. Thanks again and please just let us know if we you wish to return, we would love to have you back.
