Many of the homes on The Sanctuary at West Haven are two story, with vaulted ceilings in the lounge area, giving the spacious feeling you would expect from a Florida villa.

Safe haven at Westhaven

With the pandemic and restrictions on non-essential travel, we literally jumped through hoops to make the trip to Florida and stay once again in the Craven villa. With all of the amenities provided in the villa, we didn't find it necessary to dine out very often except for take out orders from time to time. Everything you might want or need is in excellent condition and provided in the villa. The property manager always greets us warmly and makes sure we are OK. We look forward to more open borders in the months to come, and to return once again in the winter months. Thanks again Dave and Karen.

Our home away from home!

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Craven Villa. We enjoy all of the comforts of this beautiful home, the proximity to all of the attractions and the number of golf courses nearby that I play at regularly. We have made quite a number of local friends and look forward to returning to see them in the future. We are counting the days to next season. Thanks again Karen and Dave.

Another wonderful stay at the Cravens Villa

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Cravens Villa. We arrived to a spotless home, well maintained and so comfortable after such a long drive from Canada. Our good friends, the Cravens called to check on our arrival and make sure everything was in order. We now have access to all of the movie channels that we view on the new 62 inch flat screen in the family room. Dave and Karen have kept this home in pristine condition, regular upgrades to all of the amenities and we look forward to our stays here in the future.

A holiday to remember with the villa as a star!

Dear Dave and Karen, Well all good things come to an end, and unfortunately for us that means us being back at home rather than in your wonderful Villa. A place that has seemed like home for the past 4 weeks Can I just take this opportunity for providing such a memorable stay for my family and simply extend our most warmest thanks for such a great stay. It was everything that we had hoped and more. I hope that we can visit again , and if August 2018 ever becomes available please let me know !! August 2019 would be good too. I hope you found everything in order on our departure, and yes we really did wash all the bedding and towels, prior to departure. A holiday to remember with the villa as a star. Had such a great stay- and I still think there is beer in the keg. Please keep us in mind if next summer comes up and thank you so much again. Much appreciated by us all. John

Thanks Chris

You wont be disappointed. We visit Florida usually twice per year, renting villas each time. We love West Haven area as it is so peaceful but close to supermarkets and restaurants, plus a quick 5 minute drive to I4. This villa was exceptionally equipped. If it is not in the villa you probably don't need it! Good quality bed linen and very clean. If you are travelling with young children/baby they have thought of everything. Dave the owner was only a 5 minute call away and did everything he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would not hesitate in returning to this home. Certainly not furnished to the usual holiday home standard....surpassed that by miles. Very comfortable and homely with a fantastic pool. Couldn't fault a thing. Well done, your doing a great job Dave and Karen.

Wonderful Stay

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely villa in a quiet gated community. Everything was exceptionally clean and maintained to high a standard. Wasn't sure what to think of the salt water pool prior to our arrival but our 2 year old grandson loved it. David & Karen were easy to contact if we needed anything and promptly responded. This villa would be the first one I'd look for if we holiday here again.

Another Wonderful Stay at this Fabulous Villa

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful stay at Dave and Karen's clean and spacious villa. They have been more than just hosts, they have become good friends. We were able to get to Disney on a few occasions as well as Universal, both of which are minutes away. We enjoyed our visit to Busch Gardens, one hour east and made a few trips to Cocoa Beach, exactly one hour west. I was able to join a golf course which is a three minute drive from here, and played nearly every day. We are so looking forward to returning again next year.

Amazing villa & great owners.

Wow, well what can I say.... This villa is amazing, we have stayed in a few villas in Davenport over the years but this is THEE best villa we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. It's an immaculately clean and very presentable villa and It has everything you could want or need. Its like a home away from home. It is on a very quiet and well looked after gated community, within easy reach of all the attractions we love in Florida. We made use of the fantastic pool daily, which again is immaculate & clean. Dave is very friendly and welcoming ( He talked golf with my husband ) We loved this villa that much we've booked again to go back, 2018 can't come quick enough.

One word describes Dave and Karen's villa, spectacular! From the spacious rooms, the cleanliness of everything, its ideal location and the attention of the owners to maintenance, this home has everything you could ever want in a Florida vacation villa. Each year we visit, we become closer friends and enjoy golfing with Dave and his friends too. There is so much to see and do in this area. We look forward to returning once again.

Our vacation home

We stayed in Dave and Karen's villa from the 20th July 2015 to the 3rd August 2015. The villa is spotless and has everything you could want. Beds are large and extremely comfortable. The lake area at the rear is great and we made friends with a couple of Sandhill Cranes who came to visit us every morning. I would definitely recommend it and if I can persuade hubby to return to Florida. I will definitely be contacting Dave. Book it you won't be disappointed

Your more than welcome
Go for it!

We stayed at the Cravens from 20/7/15-3/8/15 and would highly recommend it. The villa is beautiful - light and airy, clean and well decorated and maintained. The pool is great - sun comes round fully in the afternoon and there is a large open area at the back so you are not overlooked - the outside lavatory is fab when you are soaking wet. The rooms are large and everything we could possibly want was provided. The games room is well stocked (there are even bikes and a cross-trainer if you feel energetic). All in all, we loved our time there and would not hesitate to re-book when we return to Florida.

Fabulous home has everything you could ever want!

We arrived a few days after Christmas, in the early evening and were greeted with the most spectacular display on the front lawn. It was complete with inflated characters, animated decorations, lighting of every type all set to seasonal music. In the days that followed, neighbors in the area would bring their children to see the display and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the use of tennis racquets, bicycles, billiard tables, and games of every type. There were even fishing rods and tackle available if we chose to find a place to fish. This is our second year wintering at the Craven Villa and can't wait to return. This past year we were welcomed with all new appliances and complete renovations in the kitchen and living/dining areas. Everything in the home is first class. it is very convenient to many of the major golf courses in the area which I enjoy, and a short hop to many shopping areas as well. In exactly one hour, we are able to drive to Cocoa Beach from the villa, to enjoy a warm day on the sand. And of course, all of Disney, Universal, Sea World and other attractions are only a short drive on the Interstate Highways. Dave and Karen have been great hosts and have become good friends as well. Dave and I share a passion for golf, as evident by the displays in the games area. He is a person with a good sense of humour who always attends to any our needs very quickly. They are both very nice people.

Morning Dave, We all arrived safely at the villa just after 6pm last night !!! The sight that greeted us with the Christmas Lights & Music was FANTASTIC and a really nice surprise. The Villa itself is everything we imagined, lovely. We are all up and about this morning and will be leaving before 8am to get off to Magic Kingdom. Already feel settled in and comfy.

The Cravens

We stayed in this villa in August 2012, it is a very clean and well maintained villa and has everything you could want. Dave the owner is a very attentive villa owner nothing was to much trouble for him, even when we had a problem with the internet he had sorted it within a couple of hours. I personally loved the balcony off the master suite as it was a perfect place to sit and chill out in the sun whilst reading my kindle, and my partner and son loved the premiership football channel on the TV. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it's a great villa on a clean and well maintained gated community.

Hi Dave, Thank you for allowing us the use of your excellent villa, we had a great time and found the facilities, location and cleanliness of the villa exceeding our expectations, always a good thing! We were a little lost in such a big house with just three of us staying but that's no bad thing. I will certainly consider contacting you again if, or should I say when, we return to Florida.

We were the envy of our friends!

We all had a fabulous time and the house was beautiful and so well equipped with all the essentials and more. We would definately stay there again and recommend it to friends and family. 10 of our friends stayed in a nearby house which was no where near as nice as ours or as well equiped. We were all thrilled with the xmas decorations (especially the children) and we were the envy of our friends.
