Our luxury villa with private pool and spa in Orlando is in a great location, situated within 10 - 15 minutes drive from Disney World in The Abbey at Westhaven. Shops, restaurants and a petrol station are all within a few minutes drive. Very convenient access to the I-4 to get quickly to the major attractions and nearby is US27 with more shops and restaurants. The gated community of The Abbey at West Haven is one of the most sought after locations in Central Florida. It is approached by a wide, lushly landscaped main boulevard lined with palm trees. Villa guests have access to the community centre, which has a large communual pool, tennis courts, gym, volleyball court and table tennis. The community is located just off Ronald Regan Parkway between US27 and the I-4 in a beautiful area which is quiet, but convenient for all the parks and attraction.
March 2016 - updates to the villa include a total repaint of the villa interior with feature walls in the lounge and king suite, repainted balcony deck and railings off the queen suite, a new larger outside dining table & new pool heater.
August 2016 - The land at the rear is now being prepared for building work, which while sounds bad is probably a blessing in disguise. Currently the developer is moving earth around (well sand really, as Florida is just a big sand dune!) and putting in the services (drainage, utilities etc.) The land will have vacation homes built on it and 2 ponds. The developer has installed a fabric fence to stop dust and shield the villas from the work. We are lucky as our villa is on a corner plot and the pool deck and lanai sit below a bank which shields the view while you enjoy the pool and lanai. The new home plots are to be 30 feet back from the boundary with the Abbey. The schedule is unknown at this point but we will keep updating this advert with progress.
We have installed a camera that looks out at the rear of the property over the top of the pool screen so that we can keep an eye on developments. We offer our potential guests access to this live stream upon request. It is purely to show the development and we ensure it does not affect the privacy of guests staying in the villa.
Update - Feb 2018 - The homes at the rear are not vacation rentals but are residential. The buildings directly behind our villa are nearly complete and we are going to look at some landscaping options to provide some privacy of our pool and deck.
Update Mar 2018 - we have planned a visit and will be updating photos and having some landscaping done. This should be ready by June.
Update Jun 2018 - The closet single family residential homes at the rear of our villa are now complete, with 2 occupied. One has had a white fence installed around its plot. We have installed some landscaping along the rear which will grow quickly and provide more screening from the properties, which we felt didn't impact on our enjoyment of the pool, spa and pool deck. The Magnolia at the front of our villa has died and is going to be removed shortly. We have added more photo's to show the landscaping at the rear of our villa.
