About Sally & Mark Turner
We are Mark and Sally Turner from Worcestershire, England, UK. We fell in love with Florida on our first visit back in 2005. Since that time we have spent many happy holidays in the sunshine state and have been fortunate enough to return on many occasions. We have two children aged 28 and 26 and one granddaughter who made her first visit at 3 months old this year! So they have all been brought up with holidays to Orlando with all its magic and many attractions. We have also 'acquired' a son-in-law a couple of years ago, who very quickly jumped on the ‘Florida’ band wagon!!
Sally & Mark Turner purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Sally & Mark Turner chose West Haven
Our property is an executive, spacious and comfortable property.(We have just added a new genuine leather corner suite with chaise lounge section). It is fitted with high spec facilities i.e. The fastest available internet connection (up to 100 Mbps download speed), we have an ihome portable music speaker for you to connect your iphone/ipad etc to the wireless network and play your music anywhere in the house. The 60 inch HD wall mounted TV has the Apple TV connector, enabling you to play your just recorded holiday videos through the wireless network, or watch a film via Netflix, or connect to one of the several other apps. Also attached to the TV is there is an XBox 360 with kinect - to keep the children amused (if they haven't been worn out at the Theme parks!). For the soccer fans among you, we have the English Premier League upgrade option on our Brighthouse TV package, so you will be able to watch the match of your choice! In our games room we have an American pool table, Air Hockey table and Bar Football - so plenty of fun for all the family! Outside there is a spa and pool with plenty of deck space for enjoying the sun, there is also a six seat outdoor dining table and BBQ for you to enjoy al fresco eating! At night time the pool and spa can be lit with various different colours, just choose the colour you like, or the colours will change automatically. We believe we have thought of everything you would need for your stay.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is not overlooked and backs onto a conservation view (not backing directly onto other properties or white fences like many villas in the Orlando area do!). It is a southwest facing property, so you will benefit from plenty of sun on the pool and terrace and you will be able to watch the famous Florida sunsets from the balcony above the pool! We have six rattan sunbeds to relax on and a matching six seat table and chairs on the lanai, with the free use of our BBQ. The pool and spa have multi colour lights for evening/night time bathing, just choose your colour or have changing colours!

The house and neighborhood were very nice. The house is very large and the pool was lovely. It was clean and no bugs in it. We felt extremely comfortable in the house. A big TV in the living room and a large leather sofa that was good to sit in. This house gets the first rating.
Beautiful house, well equipped kitchen, everything was great!! Highly recommend & we will hopefully be back soon!
Thank you for your review, we are pleased you found everything to your liking.
We hope you can make it back again!

Five stars just isn't enough for this property. It was the perfect home for our large family.
From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we were home. The home had exceeded our expectations and the easy communication from Mark & Sally put our stay over the top.
The home is very spacious and has a great floorplan. The kids were eager to pick their rooms. The two Disney themed rooms were a bonus. Our large family was able to spread out and not feel like we were on top of one another. We spent most of our time in the pool and the game room. Our kids enjoyed playing air hockey while the adults played pool.
The location of the home was great as well. It was just a short drive to the parks and area attractions. There's a local grocery store nearby along with other shops and restaurants.
Thank you Mark and Sally for allowing us to enjoy your home. We look forward to coming back soon!!
Lovely review Rob - thank you.
We are glad to hear that you all enjoyed your stay.
We hope you can make it back again in the future.

We loved every minute of our stay in the villa. The pool was nice and private and the spa was welcoming after a long day in the parks. The beds were really comfortable and area was peaceful and quiet. All of our requests and queries were dealt with promptly and the villa was really clean. Community pool and gym is less than a 5 minute walk away and Champions Gate is a 2 minute drive away with a supermarket and plenty of eating places. Would definitely go back and stay in this villa again. Thank You.
Thank you for your review Keith, we would very much welcome you to stay at our villa again and are happy that you loved your stay!
All the best,
Mark and Sally
A Truly Fantastic Location!
Our villa is located on The Shire which is a gated community of select luxurious vacation homes all of which are spacious with executive-style floor plans. It is just a couple of minutes from Champions Gate and just over 10 minutes from all the magic at Disney World.
The community benefits from its very own clubhouse that is available FREE to our guests and includes a resort size pool, two tennis courts, beach volleyball, table tennis and a fully equipped air conditioned gym.
In our opinion The Shire is one of the best locations in Orlando with the peace and quiet of this executive gated community but its within easy access to the Interstate 4, which enables easy navigation to all of Florida's fantastic attractions.
The Shire provides the ideal base for exploring the Magical World of Disney being just over a 10 minute drive away. Sea World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and the newly opened Legoland are all within easy reach and waiting to give you days of full on pleasure, excitement and thrills. The Rip Ride Rocket, The Hulk and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter await. For the younger children Legoland is a must.
For the golfers the excellent Champions Gate golf courses are practically on the doorstep. The Greg Norman designed courses are a must play for any golfer. The David Leadbetter teaching academy and a floodlight driving range are also situated here. Other courses of note close by are Celebration, Mystic Dunes, Disney Courses and Falcons Fire. This is a dream location for any Golfer, great courses, great weather, great 19th at all locations. Then head off back to a great villa to relax and have a swim, whilst dreaming of that level par gross you are going to achieve the following day. Does this sound like paradise? It is! Book your next golfing holiday in the sunshine state with us. Remember our villa can sleep up to three 4 balls and our prices are for the villa not per person. The International and National Golf Courses at Champions Gate are only 2 minutes from our home.
An hour West is the Gulf of Mexico. Here you will find the beautiful beaches of St Pete's or maybe go for a swim with the Dolphins in the beautiful blue sea at Clearwater. To the East are the famous beaches of Cocoa and Daytona. Visit Kennedy Space Centre and the chance to see a live space launch.
Only 45 minutes away you can see wild alligators on one of the memorable air boat rides.
