Perfect Villa

Just home from two weeks at Susie’s villa. It was perfect. Very spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for our family of six. Our children particularly enjoyed the pool which was spotless and lovely and warm. Great location, quiet, gated community with lots of restaurants close by at Championsgate and local supermarket too. Would happily stay again.

The Shire at West Haven - Just Perfect

We spent two weeks at Susie and Bryce's house in West Haven. We arrived in a pretty dramatic thunder storm which took us longer than normal to land into Orlando. The house and pool were just perfect on a beautiful gated estate, extremely well equipped kitchen with everything you can possibly need for cooking, plus hair dryers in each bedroom. It was June/July so lots of dramatic thunderstorms and rain, but still very hot and the storms were short lived. It is the perfect location for visiting everywhere. This holiday we chose to see different tourists attractions. We went to watch Tampa Bays in a Baseball Match which is indoors with AC. We also visited a Cigar Factory in Tampa which was very interesting showing you the machine and hand rolled cigars, (we were the only ones who did not smoke cigars). Airboat Ride in Boggy Creek was also pretty good. We went to Anna Marie Island which has stunning beaches on the Golf Coast and St Armond Circle, Discovery Cove, Universal and many more lovely places. If you have a Costco card in the UK you can use this in America also, just check that it is the Costco that has fuel and restaurant and not the business one. The I4, be warned it is a nightmare now with constant traffic jams, but do not be put off because we just avoided both the I4 and the toll roads on the GPS and actually the routes were far more interesting and if not quicker. Can highly recommend Cracker Barrel for a good hearty breakfast, this was extremely well received on our first morning, after a very early morning swim in the pool (due to time difference). Twisty is a must, this is an ice cream parlour with a lots of choice, they are fantastic, and they have now popped up everywhere. Last time we went there was just 1 in Orlando. Also due to late night flights back to the UK we booked an extra night in Susie and Bryce's house which meant that we could spend the day relaxing around the pool before heading to the Airport early evening, rather than having to leave in the morning and then hanging around all day in the heat killing time. We will be back, because we love Florida.

Repeat stays say everything

We've recently completed our 8th awesome stay at the Gillies' villa, and since 2010 I'm amazed at the professional upkeep after all these years. Still a wonderful location; and I'd say a better pick than the newer CG golf community across the main road: wider lots, shorter streets, a little more privacy. House, pool, patio all in great shape. Booking is easy. Wish I was still sitting by the pool!

Great villa, great service

We have stayed in a few different villas in Davenport in the past, even in the exact same gated neighbourhood, which is a fine neighbourhood to start with. Close to Champions Gate, stores and restaurants nearby in any direction, close to highways 27, 192 and I4. This villa we can definitely recommend. It's great that pool heating is included instead of optional and we don't think we ever had a working pool light in other villas. Deanna quickly acted when bugs - it's Florida after all - came under the screen doors with rain. Great service!

Beautiful Villa

We just loved your villa for the 2 months from Feb 1st to April 1st 2018 that we were there. The furnishings were very comfortable and the decor was beautifully done. The shire of West Haven was centrally located and close to businesses and local attractions and is situated in a beautiful Area. Bryce and Susie we thank you so much for opening up your home to us. It was definitely Home away from Home.. We definitely would love to come back and stay in your villa again hopefully in 2010 if you will have us. We just love the area.

Excellent Villa!!

Jan 2018 was our 2nd stay at this villa, and we would highly recommend it. The owners are always friendly and truly easy to deal with, the management service also takes care of issues speedily and with no fuss. The location is excellent with multiple new restaurants and services just 5 mins drive away and just 25 minutes from the airport and most of the parks. The Shires is a very clean and safe friendly neighborhood. Plenty of room for the family to spread out within the home and the pool, spa and games room are excellent. In short; you won’t be disappointed if you book this Villa, I will certainly book again next time I’m lucky enough to be in Orlando.

Hi Gary and family thank you for your great review and we look forward to having you back anytime.
Lovely stay

We had a wonderful 2 week stay in your Davenport villa. We loved the area - quiet and very well maintained and within easy reach of the theme parks. The shops at Champions Gate are only a 3 minute drive away and served us very well. The villa itself was very spacious, clean and well-maintained and we absolutely loved the hot tub. It was particularly nice not to be overlooked. The villa is also very well equipped with absolutely everything we needed...and more. We would add that there is a lovely community feel to West Haven and the fact we were in a gated community gave the neighbourhood a particularly nice safe and secluded feel. We enjoyed running and walking in the area and taking in the local wildlife including the resident crane family! Thank you to Bryce and his family for providing us with such a homely and comfortable place to stay during our Christmas break.

Perfect space...

Visited Bryce's beautiful holiday home in Jun/Jul 2017. A fantastic place to relax and enjoy the sun after the frantic pace of the theme parks. We were only a family of four so this 4 bedroom home was almost TOO big for us. Hardly a complaint. Kitchen was well equipped, living area comfortable, dining space ideal, rooms were a great size and pool area and lanai were spot on. I'd struggle to find a fault with this place and hope to revisit soon. Just a really well presented home in the perfect area.

Hi Folks so glad you enjoyed your time.
Consistently great :)

2017 was our 6th year staying at the Gillies' villa, and we'd still highly recommend. The owners are always friendly and truly easy to deal with, providing all necessary information and amenities for a great stay. The management service also creates a clean, inviting environment. Both take suggestions and comments seriously to attempt to create the best guest experience possible. There are so many great aspects to staying here: location (with multiple new restaurants and services within a 5km walk if you choose), friendly neighbourhood, cleanliness and esthetics of the house and pool, the fun games room, and lots of space for a family to spread. The hot-tub gets nice and hot and the fridge keeps the drinks cold! It is truly a home away from home. You won't regret booking this property. But you will regret when your vacation is finished! Then you'll be inclined to book again, and again, and...!

This was a lovely villa very spacious, it had everything we required. The pool heat unfortunately stopped working but it was fixed the next day with no inconvenience to ourselves. The villa is situation very near to the freeway so easy access to all theme parks. Everything about the villa was top class and immaculate inside and out. If you have children the games room is excellent and the pool area is a perfect place to chill after a long day at the parks. Booking this villa is hassle free and we hope to book the villa next March 2018.

Fantastic Property!!

We stayed at The Shires over Christmas 2016 and had the most amazing time! The property was very clean and tidy and well equipped. The rooms were large, airy and very modern, beautifully decorated and homely. We had lots of fun cooking on the electric BBQ on the patio, relaxing in the jacuzzi and spending time swimming in the gorgeous pool. We have visited Florida a few times but this villa was by far our favourite, we would love to come back again one day! Thanks Bryce !! X Just probably 3 things you may want look into but please don't include in review if you don't have to!! Christmas decorations and a tree would have been nice, the last villa we stayed at provided this. Also a few inflatables around the pool for children? The pillows could have been bigger and bedding of a higher quality (cotton sheets perhaps) but it was all fab! X

Top notch Villa

I've been making regular visits to Orlando for 20 years and stayed in many villas. To be honest, they're much of a muchness, and all were up to a pretty high standard. However, I have to say the Shire is well towards the top end of the scale. It's clean and tidy, spacious, secure and brimming with features which made our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. The peace and tranquility of the surroundings provided the perfect antidote to a hectic day at the theme parks. The heated pool was one of the warmest I've ever swam in, the integral sauna is an added bonus (once I'd worked out how to turn it on!) The house is situated 3mins away from the supermarket and only a 10mins drive from DisneyWorld which is a great advantage. 15-20mins more and you're in Universal. Administration before and after booking was uncomplicated and hassle free. Thanks to everyone at the Shire for helping to make this holiday one of the best!!

This was our first trip to Florida and I would come back to this villa again and again. Everything was spotless and the villa was just perfect. The pool was beautiful, great for the kids to chill out and play in after a day at the theme parks. It's so handy for the theme parks, 10 minutes drive (if that) and you are there. I can't fault this stay - any problems we had were rectified immediately by the property agent with no hassle at all. Everything we needed was there for us. It felt like we were staying in a mansion.

I stayed in the Shires with my family, we couldn't ask for more. The photographs on the website did not do justice enough to the Shires until you set your eyes on it. It's just too beautiful to behold! I'm comfortable to recommend it to anyone who's planning a trip to Florida on vacation. Please keep up the high standard of providing a first class accommodation for visitors to the magnificent Shires.

5 time return visitor!

We've been repeat renters for 4 years now, and have again renewed for 2014! Villa is still great: pool and hottub are good temperature, games room is lots of fun. Location is the best part: very safe/secure neighbourhood and close to many stores and restaurants. Less than 10km from just about every chain store in the state (on US192); 15 minute drive to the ballpark at Disney (and all the other Disney parks/amenities. Owners and management team are very responsive to needs. This picky person recommends!

Amazing villa in a fantastic location

This is easily the best villa we have stayed at in several visits to Orlando. Excellently maintained and cared for with all the modern amenities you could need. The location is excellent, close to main roads for easy access to the Parks, also near to a supermarkets and restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. The owners communication was great.

Hi Rebecca...looking forward to having you back in the future Regards, Bryce & Susie
Fabulous in every way!

From the time of booking to the end of our stay we were provided with excellent customer service by both property owners Bryce & Susie and their management company. The location of this villa is perfect for both parks and just chilling out with family and friends. Large enough for two families it has everything to accommodate you with a beautiful pool area and spa. With Publix within a 5 minute drive next to a chinese takeaway, nail bar, and many other shops along with a Chilli's restaurant on the corner of Championship Gate entrance. We had a great three weeks holiday with our family and would certainly recommend this villa to both family and friends for future visits to the sunshine state.

Just beautiful!!

We have just returned from our stay and all I can say is how beautifully decorated and how well stocked the villa is. it is so handy having Publix within a 5 minute drive and there are numerous restaurants. Our favourite was the Outback Steakhouse at Formosa Gardens (The ribs are to die for!!!) Bryce provided plenty of information prior to arrival and the home was immaculate with towel swans in the bedrooms on arrival, a lovely touch! Thanks again and we would recommend to anyone

Lovely Villa

Booked direct with Bryce who could not have been more accommodating and was happy to answer all questions. The villa is situated on a nice quiet estate approximately 25-30 minutes from Orlando International Airport, 10 minutes or so from Disney and around 20-25 minutes from Sea World and Universal. There is a Publix supermarket at Champions Gate, an excellent Chinese restaurant and takeaway (China 1) and a great burger/ribs/steak restaurant called Chillies (recommended). The villa is well equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The pool is a good size and well heated with the spa pool being an added bonus. We would certainly stay here again the next time we visit Orlando.

Thank you Alan and family and we look forward to seeing you back in the near future......when Newcastle qualify for the C.L.
Great way to holiday

This was the first time we've rented a house for our holidays and I think we're spoiled for hotels now. The location is great and the house spacious and well maintained. The only disappointment was the beds. In the main bedroom, you could feel individual springs in the mattress. In the secondary bedrooms, the mattresses were thin and exceptionally hard.

Hi Cliff & Susan Thank you for your comments that is how we will keep on improving our service .....The mattresses have been changed so hopefully when you return you will have a peacefull nights rest.
muy recomendable

Fuimos en familia de viaje Eramos 7 personas y pasamos una semana divina en esta casa. Lo que se muestra en la web es exactamente como luce la casa cuando uno llega La limpieza es impecable y esta todo pensando para que no haga falta nada. Para nosotros fue lo mejor haber alquilado esta casa porque nos permitía compartir despues de los parques a diferencia de un hotel. Cuando uno llega hay un libro de manuales que es aconsejable leerlos Nosotros no lo hicimos y nos equivocamos coon la basura pero se soluciono de la mejor manera, por la amabilidad de la adminitradora.

Perfect Vacation Getaway

Our first visit to Florida and like the previous reviewer we took time to find a villa that suited us and we made the right choice! Bryce (the owner) could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The villa is tastefully decorated and was spotless on our arrival. It is a nice size and it was also nice to all be on the one floor. The villa is in a new estate very close to all amenities and only 15 mins from the parks. Coming back to the villa after a day at the parks was such a welcome respite, so peaceful and private, will definitely recommend to our friends.

Nothing else to wish for!

Our family of 4 has stayed in this beautiful villa twice now (2010, 2011) and we've already re-upped for a third visit next year! Booking through the owner was hassle-free, even from overseas. The Shires and West Haven community is beautiful, safe, extremely well-maintained and very close to chain restaurants, groceries, shopping, and recreation. Inside and outside the villa appears new, very clean, and nicely decorated. What a joy to have separate bedrooms, kitchen facilities, and our own private pool and hot-tub! All the comforts of home, except better decorated and in FLORIDA! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend, and have to many friends. You just can't take our week!

Hi Lisa, Your a star .....remember if you see or think of anything that will improve the villa please let us know. Bryce , Susie and the Family
**Fantastic Villa!**

We have stayed at this beautiful villa twice over the last two years, and would highly recommend it to anyone. The home is fantastic, with luxury furnishings and everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Correspondence with the owner Bryce was second to none, very accomodating, nothing is too much trouble. The villa is spotlessly clean and in excellent condition, a credit to the owners. The Shires is in an excellent location, very central and close to all the attractions, with some lovely restaurants close by. Having visited Orlando yearly for the past 16 years, and stayed in many villas in various locations, this is by far the nicest and best! Thank you

Perfect Villa

This was our first trip to Orlando so we spent some time looking for the right villa, in the right location. we could not have chosen better, the villa is perfectly situated in a quite estate which gives you a chance to chill out and relax after a busy day at the parks. it's only a mile or so from a well stocked Publix supermarket, restaurants and take aways. DisneyWorld is about 15 minutes drive via the I4 which is a short drive away via champions gate. The villa itself is very clean, well equipped and well furnished. the pool is excellent. communications with the owner, Gilles was excellent, any query or question was answered without hesitation. overall the villa played a very big part in a very memorable holiday. highly recommended.

Shire at West Haven 4 Bedroom Vacation Rental
Perfect Villa

Just home from two weeks at Susie’s villa. It was perfect. Very spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for our family of six. Our children particularly enjoyed the pool which was spotless and lovely and warm. Great location, quiet, gated community with lots of restaurants close by at Championsgate and local supermarket too. Would happily stay again.
