Overview

About the property

Luxury Five Bedroom, Four Bathroom Villa With Rear Views Over Conservation Area.

Luxury 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom villa with private pool having views over conservation area in a gated community only a short drive from Disney and all that Orlando has to offer.

Welcome to the 'Sanctuary View' which is located in the gated community of the 'Sanctuary' at Westhaven and is easily reached from Interstate 4. The 'Sanctuary' is a community of high valued properties located in an area of tree lined avenues and immaculately kept gardens which gives a sense of peace and tranquility and being in harmony with nature. 'Sanctuary View' has the added benefit of being situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, so it is an especially quiet and restful location with no rear neighbours.

Upon arrival at the property drop you suitcases at the front door and walk through the light and airy kitchen and open the patio doors to the pool. You'll be greeted with a lovely view over the conservation area and we feel sure that no matter how long your journey has been, you'll begin to relax and feel right at home in your lovely Florida villa!

The spacious property has five bedrooms including a master bedroom with luxurious en-suite complete with separate bath, shower and 'His & Hers' vanity units. All bedrooms are fitted with ceiling fans and closets for added guest comfort.

The layout of the other four bedrooms is family friendly with a King bedroom and a twin bedroom sharing a bathroom upstairs and a Queen bedroom and twin bedroom sharing a bathroom downstairs. The downstairs bathroom is fitted with hand rails and a low level bath to allow easier and safer access. The Queen bedroom downstairs has patio doors opening onto the pool area and is a wonderful light and spacious room ideal for couples of all ages. There is also a large sofa bed in the dining area so the property can accommodate up to 10 people but extra cleaning charges will apply to party sizes above 8 persons.

In the interests of child safety stair gates are fitted at both the top and bottom of the stairs.

All bedrooms have Samsung flat screen TVs and there is a large 50 ' Samsung flat screen TV in the main lounge and a Samsung 'Blu-Ray' player that allows access to 'You-Tube' & 'Pandora' plus 'Netflix' if you have a log-in account. There is also a 32' TV/DVD in the seating area at the top of the stairs complete with X-Box gaming console. There is cable TV throughout the villa and for football (Soccer) lovers English Premier league is available. For music lovers there is a 'Bose' IPod speaker docking station located in the Master bedroom and a Samsung Bluetooth speaker situated in the lounge. Complimentary high speed Wi Fi and free local & international phone calls are included. (Please refer to villa information sheet for details of available international locations for free phone calls)

The villa has a fully equipped kitchen with everything that you'd expect from a luxury villa of this type. So if you're making a quick snack or preparing a large Sunday roast dinner you'll find all of the equipment you need.

The pool is west facing with lovely sunsets and is an ideal place to chill out after a hectic day on the golf courses, at the theme parks or out shopping. I never get tired of sitting on the deck and watching the sun go down. Some of the cloud formations experienced at sunset are truly spectacular.

The extended deck with views across to the natural area of conservation offers a high degree of privacy. It has a large seating area with a selection of chairs, tables and sun loungers and there are ample towels provided. For your safety the pool has a child safety fence installed. Pool heating is available upon request, for an additional fee.

Adjacent to the kitchen there is a cosy breakfast nook overlooking the pool, perfect for lazy breakfasts. An archway from the kitchen leads to a formal dining area seating six plus a second lounge with two comfy sofas. This is a nice quiet area to relax with a book or share a drink with friends.

For your convenience there is also a separate laundry room with washer and dryer plus a games room with pool table, table football and air hockey.

There are numerous excellent golf courses close by including the 'Champions Gate' facility which has 36 holes and was voted as Orlando's best golf course. A 'Publix' supermarket is just five minutes drive away.

For everyone's comfort the property is no smoking throughout.

About Arthur & Erica Dodd

The property is owned by the husband and wife team of Arthur and Erica. We live in the UK but fell in love with Florida many years ago when our children were young and wanted to come to Disney. Since that time we've had holidays many times on the East coast of the USA but finally decided to buy a villa in the Orlando area of Florida.

Arthur is now 63 years of age and whilst he is still working it won't be long until we finally retire and spend a lot more time in this lovely villa.

The photo is of Erica and Arthurs' parents who visited in Nov 2013. They love anything different and we took them on an airboat trip at 'Boggy Creek' which is something not to be missed during your visit to Orlando. (Would you believe that Arthurs' father is 92 years of age?)

Arthur & Erica Dodd purchased this villa in 2013

Why Arthur & Erica Dodd chose Davenport

We purchased 'Sanctuary View' in Feb 2013 after spending considerable time viewing properties in the Orlando area. We were looking for a spacious five bedroomed luxury villa close to the Disney area but we wanted something that would allow us to relax in natural surroundings that gave us some peace and quiet. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to purchase 'Sanctuary View' because it really is in a great location. Not only is it a short drive from Disney and all that Orlando has to offer but it is in such a quiet location that you wouldn't believe that one of the worlds largest theme parks is only 15 minutes drive away!

Finding the property is very easy as it is only five minutes away from I4. Full directions and access codes to the property are supplied.

What makes this villa unique

When we purchased 'Sanctuary View' we did so with the intention of living here for at least three months every year ourselves. As such the property had to meet some fairly demanding requirements. It had to be spacious, well designed with ample bathrooms on a quiet gated community close to the action of Orlando and the theme parks. We also wanted a private pool deck with views over a conservation area and situated on a cul-de-sac if possible. Well we managed to meet all of our requirements with 'Sanctuary View.'

The property is very spacious and can accommodate a party size of ten with ease. The bathroom layout is very family friendly and there is space for everyone.

We have had some excellent reviews and many of our guests return year on year so they must enjoy our villa :) We're sure you will too!

One feature of the property that we really love is the fact that there are no rear neighbours which allows views to the rear of the property over the conservation area. It is very peaceful and some regular visitors are a family of Sand Cranes that are wonderful creatures.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Having stayed in various properties in Davenport area in the last ten years, this one is by far the best we have rented. All fixture and fittings are first class and the property was very well maintained. The pool area was not as overlooked as most villas, and the gated community was very quiet while we were there. We would definitely rent it again, and would recommend it to friends.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this villa for 3 years in a row. Owners are so nice and excellent to deal with. Villa is clean and is well looked after. There are many upgrades in this beautiful villa, the owners continue to surprise us! There is no lack of outdoor furniture on the lanai, which is so important if you have a family, we love that! So many do not have this feature. Pool is south west facing, getting lots of sun and no one behind this home which is lovely. The villa is well stocked with everything you would need in a home away from home. Very highly recommended!!

Owner takes pride in the Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several villas over the years and this is the first, for us, that exceeded expectations. It was clean, spacious, had newer appliances, was well cared for, and located in a quiet neighborhood on a quiet street. No rear neighbors, which is always a plus. We used the pool often, and the extra towels provided came in handy. The owner was prompt with his responses to our questions, and even called us during our visit to see how things were going. Located an easy 3 minutes from I-4, close to several restaurants and groceries. Convenient travel to and from the theme parks. We were highly satisfied with our stay.

Visitor from Atlanta

  • 5 of 5

We are enjoying our stay in this great villa. The pool is warm and nice. The house is spacious and clean. When we arrived, we were welcomed with towel-made swans in the master bedroom. Everything works. John, the landlord called and checked if everything was OK. I can warmly recommend this property

THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY DESTINATION

There's something for everyone in Florida and the Orlando area. The theme parks are obviously a big attraction for kids of all ages. (I'm 60 now and I still classify myself as a kid and still love to try out the new rides at Disney and Universal :) Seaworld is another great attraction along with all the super restaurants along 'I-Drive.' Golf is great all year round and there are some super courses close to the villa. I've had birdies on a few of them so I should know. The shopping in the Orlando area is awesome, just remember to leave a little extra room in the suitcases on the way out, for those purchases when you are here!

The weather is great all year round and there is a general holiday feeling about the whole state.

Of course after a busy day at the parks, in the shopping malls or on the golf course you'll need somewhere relaxing to come home to. Our villa has lovely sunsets over the pool in the afternoon, lots of comfy chairs and loungers and is a perfect place to kick off your shoes and 'chill out!'

ENJOY!
