Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in The Sanctuary at Westhaven - Sanctuary View

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.

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 accomodate up to 10 people but extra cleaning charges will apply to party sizes above 8 persons.

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 62 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 are the 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.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We've rented many times in the Orlando past 20years. The Villa is brilliantly located for dining out/supermarkets close by at Champions Gate and US27. The villa is nicely equipped and the pool /lanai area was just perfect in terms of striking the right balance for sunshine and shade. Plenty of seats and loungers which was great and far better than other properties we've rented. Clean and no insects! Great wifi and whole family appreciated that. Certainly would recommend it would book again. Arthur is really helpful should you need any further assistance.

Like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed the second time in this lovely villa. When we arrived it really felt like coming home. Just like last year the house was super tiny and well maintained. The location is close to two big supermarkets, the shopping outlets and two shopping malls and of course to all Disney parks. Our personal highlight again this year was the huge terrace with the great pool where we can easily relax the whole day and enjoy the sunset in the evening. This feature we miss a lot at home. The contact to the lovely owners John and Erica is great and feels like knowing each other for years. For sure we will come back! :-)

Many greetings from Germany

We already miss the pool!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 19 wonderful days in this lovely pool villa with a fantastic view. When we arrived after a 10 hours flight from Germany in the evening the house was nicely lit up and already welcomed us. Everything was super clean and it even looked bigger than on the pictures shown at VRBO. The wow of this villa is for sure the huge terrace with its big pool facing south west, so sun from 11 am until sunset. Well equipped with lots of chairs, sunbeds and beach towels it was easy to relax right from the beginning of our vacation.

Both aged over 40, but still big Disney fans it's only a 20 minutes drive to all important Disney resorts. Therefore this was perfect to return home during the unusually hot afternoons for a nice pool session before going back to the resorts at night. We cooked a lot at home which was rather comfortable as the kitchen is well equipped. A supermarket is only 5 min. away, a walmart about 15 min. (which has a bigger assortment and is less expensive). A rental car is required. On our last day we even met the owners in person which was an unexpected highlight before our departure. :-)

We want to say thanks to Arthur and Erica who offer a wonderful property in this lovely area and who take care of their home with lots of dedication and love.

We want to come back for sure! :-)

Lovely greetings from Germany!

Great house in a great location! Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, well decorated and plenty of space. Amazing location to all the parks, and just the right distance to escape them and retreat to the comfort of your own space afterwards. Great décor, homely feeling. Plenty of bed rooms and bathrooms (3 upstairs and 2 downstairs) with plenty of bedding, towels and comfy beds!

Very clean and well maintained pool for a quick dip and relaxing in the sun around.

The house has a large driveway and big garage attached to the house with a games room in it, all in a secured, gated cul de sac.

Large open plan kitchen, massive fridge with ice machine and oven, complete with all the utensils and crockery.

Oh includes good wifi and an Xbox 360 with loads of games!!

I would definitely go again AND recommend this place to all my friends.

Fabulous villa, wonderful location, sunny and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this spacious villa over New Years. The property is in a fantastic secure location, a gated community that is very peaceful, friendly neighbours, and with all the amenities we needed. The owners really had thought of everything!

As promised, the villa is just a short car journey from Disneyworld and with 2 shopping malls (Florida Mall & Premium Outlet Mall), a large Publix (similar to Waitrose) and other convenience stores as well as plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes nearby. This really is the ideal location.

The pool faces across a beautiful conservation area and has sunshine all day long. There were plenty of sun loungers for us to soak up the Florida rays and enough patio furniture for dining al fresco at any time of day.

The villa itself if perfectly laid out, nicely decorated and feels like a home from home. No need to take your hairdryer or beach towels either as these are provided (saves some room in your suitcase for all that shopping!). Even an Xbox to keep the boys occupied!

We will definitely be coming back - 1 week just wasn’t enough!

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!'
