Thank you Gardiner Family for a lovely review and so happy that you all enjoyed the pool and deck at Casa Blanca. Looking forward to seeing you again. All at the best, Joan x
Gorgeous! Highly recommended:)
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this lovely spotless villa. It’s huge and there’s lots of really comfy family space to hang out. It had absolutely everything we needed. Beautifully decorated.
It’s south facing at the back and has a huge balcony accessible from the master bedroom where we could sit with a wine in the evenings. It’s really private and has a lake at the back with some wildlife. The pool was exceptionally clean and the outdoor area was a great place to chill.
The children loved playing the games especially the giant snakes and ladders.
The owner gave us lots of helpful info before we arrived and we had contact details for the local maintenance person in case we had any issues. It was reassuring to know that he was at the end of the phone even though we didn’t have any problems at all.
The resort has a locked gate so very safe. For shopping there’s plenty close by: Publix, Walmart, Olive Garden, Longhorn. All in all we had a superb stay here 5*

Excellent stay in a perfect villa.
We absolutely loved staying at Casa Blanca, it was really was the perfect Homebase for our stay. Joan was easily contactable and very informative, we were very impressed with our dealings with Joan. The information sent to us prior to our stay contained everything we needed for our stay. The villa was clean, tidy and we instantly felt at home there. There were lovely touches around the villa that made it feel like a home rather than a holiday villa. You know it’s been a good stay, when there is nothing negative to say. We can’t wait to come back to Casa Blanca and would 100% recommend staying in the villa. We love The Shire anyway but the touches around the home and the effort put into it really make the villa stand out. Thank you, Joan. We can’t wait to come back.

Amazing holiday home
From the minute we first enquired the communication with Joan was brilliant. When we walked into the villa we were amazed, we go to Orlando every year and my parents have been going for the last 20 years - we all agreed this was the best villa we’ve ever stayed in. Ivan (the manager) was great and always on hand to offer tips and hints and resolve any issues (my son managed to lock us out of the bedroom and the response time was brilliant). The location of the villa was perfect too close to bars, restaurants and shops. We would and will recommended this to anyone and everyone and We would/will definitely book again!

Casa Blanca Villa
Just returned from 10 days in the stunning Casa Blanca Villa in our favourite resort of The Shire at West Haven. This beautiful villa ticks all the boxes for the perfect Orlando holiday. The villa is spotlessly clean and well maintained throughout, with a clear landscaped area behind the pool. The owner Joan was a pleasure to deal with, and provided all the necessary information prior to our arrival. Highlight is the tranquility of just sitting at the pool relaxing and watching the wildlife, after a busy day out at the parks or the outlets. We would have no hesitation in recommending Casa Blanca for a family holiday in Florida, as it provides just that little bit of extra luxury.

Outstanding villa, best location and the nicest ow
We have just come home after our second stay at Casa Blanca and can honestly say it felt like home.
The owner is amazing with her communication, information and care. We honestly won't stay anywhere else in Florida now we have found Casa Blanca.
We have travelled to Florida for 11 years now and we think that we have found paradise. Lovely owners make all the difference, they care about their villa, they want you to feel at home and if you need anything, they make sure you get the help you need. That does not always happen at other homes.
The villa is beautiful, from breakfast by the pool, lunch in the kitchen, dinner in the dining room to a glass of wine on the verandah, all of it is blissful. You are well placed for the parks, nightlife and further afield the beaches etc
You really can't go wrong if you stay at Casa Blanca.
P.S don't forget to say hello to 'Jeff' the local baby bird ??

Home from home
We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Joan’s truly home from home villa. The villa was immaculate throughout and kitted with all mod cons. Located in a quiet area, didn’t feel overlooked despite having neighbours either side. Great location for tourist attractions & highway links. Joan is very responsive to any questions you may have. Deposit returned in a timely manner. Have highly recommended to friends/family. Will happily stay again in the future.

Fabulous villa stay
We have recently returned from a wonderful stay at at Casa Blanca, a wonderful 5 bed villa at West Haven. The villa was spotlessly clean and welcoming on our arrival, and we felt it had a very 'homely' feel, despite being extremely spacious. We made lots of use of the pool and hot tub and spent many hours sitting out on the pool deck which feels very private with a lovely peaceful outlook. We will certainly be back.

wonderful villa superb host
Covid stopped our original date, however, we found Joan to be extremely helpful and accommodating when trying to re arrange our booking. The villa is large, light and airy and definitely the one to accommodate a large group or family. We certainly had enough space that we were not on top of each other.
The pool and jacuzzi were a welcome relief after a long day at the parks. The facilities at the villa are top notch. Disney+ on the TV as well as lots of other channels to watch. we spent a lot of time keeping up with DFB and other vloggers on you tube.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and the washer and dryer were extremely useful.
I really enjoyed being able to grab a coffee early mornings and just sitting on the upstairs veranda just watching the day begin.
Joan's communication, information and help has been second to none and would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a little bit of luxury coupled with space to move , then this is the villa for you

Our vacation was absolutely the best staying at this beautiful modern home!! Joan is so great she responded to my request to book the house super quickly. Booking was very easy and everything was sent over expeditiously once we made our payment. Every room is decorated so nice and it’s in a very quiet home development that was easy to find which I love. We enjoyed our days relaxing out by the amazing pool and jacuzzi. This house is gorgeous and weekly stays are very affordable. If anyone is considering a week or more in Orlando this house is definitely a top notch choice. Our family will be back for sure.

Winter escape to Casa Blanca
We had a fantastic time at the lovely Casa Blanca.
Joan was very easy to deal with and communication was timely and informative.
The house itself is in a well maintained gated community.
The inside of the house was extremely clean and fresh, when we walked through the door we immediately felt ‘at home’.
All rooms were comfortably furnished to a very high standard and spacious. The pool area was delightful and we spent a lot of time in and around the heated pool. We particularly enjoyed having our morning coffee sitting on the screened terrace off the master bedroom and watching the sandhill cranes.
The location is great for shopping and restaurants and not too far from Disney. We were able to get to both the Gulf coast (Tampa) and the Atlantic coast (Cocoa Beach) in just over an hour.
We would love to return in the future.

Just want to say from the off that Joan is THE most helpful person. She gave us lots of information prior to leaving for holiday and the information pack in the villa was also brilliant. We had no problem at all locating the villa and the sat nav took us straight to the door. The villa is just simply beautiful and you feel very safe as it is in a gated community. A real home from home (well without the pool because we live in Scotland!). Extremely clean and fresh. It is very well equipped and has everything you need. The pool area was stunning. The open views across to the tennis and basketball courts was lovely. We stayed in December and the temperature of the pool and jacuzzi was like a warm bath...perfect! The weather wasn't great but because the pool was so warm you could still use it because it was so lovely and warm which was a real bonus. The villa is also very close to some really nice restaurants and cafe type places and a very good supermarket. We would absolutely recommend this villa and dealing with Joan was a dream.

Fabulous Stay, A Real Home from Home
Myself and my family, 8 of us in total enjoyed a wonderful weeks stay here in November 2019.
We have been coming to Orlando for over 10 years and can honestly say this is the best villa that we have ever stayed in. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and has everything you need.
From a pool table in the garage to beach towels, chairs and mats that came in handy when we visited the beach for the day.
We paid the extra to have the pool heated as our 2 year old daughter came with us and I'm so glad we did she was in the pool everyday and loved it especially the Jacuzzi.
We would definitely recommend staying here to all of our friends and family and we will almost certainly be booking again for the future.
Only down side is we eventually had to come home!

Beautiful villa in a great location
This was the first time we’ve stayed in a villa, I don’t think we’ll ever stay in a hotel again! It was lovely having space and privacy. The villa is absolutely beautiful, I particularly fell in love with the master suite. Beds were incredibly comfortable and everywhere was beautifully decorated with lovely soft carpets throughout. The pool area was very spacious, secluded and private. Our daughter loved the Mickey Mouse bedroom and our teenage son loved all the high tech TVs and the pool table! Thanks to Joan for all her help beforehand.

Dear Moore Family, What a lovely review! I am so happy that you all had a fab holiday as I know it was a special family time together. Thank you for all your kind comments and look forward to seeing you all again at Casa Blanca. Best, Joan
Fab Villa - Highly Recommended *****
Casa Blanca Villa was amazing from start to finish! Joan was great to deal with and communication was excellent. On arrival the villa was even better than the pictures and very clean. There was also some lovely personal touches to the villa that we just loved and it is decorated beautifully. During our stay we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal and it just didn’t compare. The only negative thing I could say is that we had to leave!! But we will definitely return. Thank You

Great family memories at Casa Blanca
Just had an amazing 18 nights at Casa Blanca villa in West Haven at the shire.
Villa was in a great location really close to Disney parks and just off the I-4 to Universal studios.
The villa was the best villa we have been at and have been going to Orlando now for 10 years.
Joan was a pleasure to deal with nothing was a bother to her any questions answered quickly.
Thank you very much for letting us rent your fantastic home. Looking forward to going back to villa Casa balance in the near future.

Luxury in the Shire!!
Just spent 14 fantastic nights at Casa Blanca in the Shire. We are frequent visitors to Orlando and can categorically say that this villa is one of the best we have stayed at. Great location, great villa and great villa. We totally recommend this villa, excellent. Can I just add that Joan is a pleasure to deal with even after your holiday, which is not always the case. Totally recommend Casa Blanca.

Awww Ronnie, thank you for this fantastic review of Casa Blanca! Especially since you probably have some jet lag still lol! I also loved the fact that you emailed me while you were there saying that 'you all loved the villa.' It's been a pleasure also having you. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future. All the best to you and your family. Joan
Amazing place - Casa Blanca
We stayed at Casa Blanca in May 2019 and had an amazing time! It was our first time as a family visiting Florida and I had received recommendations to stay in a villa. I came across Joan's beautiful villa and really liked the modern decor and space. Joan was really responsive and provided us with lots of recommendations and tips during our stay. The whole process was seamless. The villa was so clean and spacious. We all absolutely loved it. It was great for children with the safety fence around the pool and our two young children loved the Mickey Mouse themed room! They are still talking about it now :)
It was great having our own pool and we also used the Club House pool and gym. The villa is located in a perfect location, not too far away from the parks and close to Championsgate. Hopefully we will return to this beautiful villa in the future. Thank you Joan for all your help, I would definitely recommend this villa to others.

Absolute Luxury - Casablanca
We stayed at Villa Casablanca in April 19 .
From the moment we made our enquiry the owner Joan was by far the best person we have dealt with , Joan is extremely efficient and helpful in her responses.
Casablanca villa is immaculate, modern and very spacious with no clutter !
We have stayed in many villas over the past 10 years about (15 ) and this villa is the best .
All of the bedrooms are large with the most wonderful beds. Every room in the house is furnished to a high standard.
We travelled with 2 young boys who spent most of their time in the pool which is not overlooked.
The location of the villa is close to Champions Gate where you can find many restaurants, we liked the Millers Ale House its great for families with good food. The interstate 4 is within 2 miles so getting out and about is easy.
I would like to say a big thank you to Joan for the use of this wonderful villa this really made our holiday and we hope to be back

Dear Rob & Tina, what a terrific review! I am so happy that that you all had a great holiday and it was a pleasure having you.

Paradise at Casa Blanca
From the moment I first made an enquiry the owner this has been amazing. Extremely polite, efficient booking, lots of great information for places to go and that personal touch. As I had mentioned it was my 50th, when I arrived at this gorgeous home there were special gifts for me from them, what a thoughtful touch. I cannot over estimate how perfect this villa is, this is our 6th visit in 10 years to Orlando and it is the nicest we have had, not only the decor and layout but the position for us was perfect. We were only a few miles from everything and the estate is very well kept too. You really won't go wrong if you stay here but leave a little gap for us to visit again!

Dear Patricia, I am so happy that you had a terrific 50th Birthday vacation at Casa Blanca. A BIG thank you for this review and all your lovely comments. Looking forward to having you back again. All the best, Joan
March Break, 2019
The home is exactly as described, beautiful, comfortable and we loved our visit and we couldn’t have asked for nicer people to rent from. Joan was very helpful in our correspondence and gave us some great ideas where to eat. Best fish we ever had, sorry I can’t remember the name of the establishment but it was excellent. As I do love to cook a few extra mixing bowels would have been great, but then most people don’t cook too much on vacation. Definitely keeping all contact information in case our visit to Florida is sooner than expected. Not that far from attractions, great neighbourhood as well.

Hi Brenda, thanks for the lovely review and so glad you enjoyed the villa. This is my first review from a family from Canada - which is great! Nice to hear you had the best fish in Davenport - you'll need to go back to that restaurant the next time you visit. Will make sure I have more mixing bowls put into kitchen cupboards for you! Best, Joan

Stayed in Joan's wonderful villa for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year and what a fabulous experience it was. The villa is amazing from the beautiful interior design to the lovely surrounding and easy access to all the parks and amenities. We were sorry to leave, everything was perfect in this house from the soft fluffy towels to the most comfy beds ever. The pool and spa were great and the children loved spending time in it. Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your fantastic home, we will definitely return.

Casa Blanca, a little slice of heaven
The property and people dealing with it are sublime. Casa Blanca will not disappoint anyone wishing to stay on there vacation, everything described and in photos are 100% accurate and Joan the owner is always on hand and helped us a lot. The property is immaculate and everything works with high end furnishings and appliances. I can’t fault it as everything from the area to the pool is sublime. All I can say is thank you for letting our family rent this property

Casa Blanca is a beautiful villa both inside and out, it’s internal decor is stunning and the outside pool area is very private with a lovely peaceful view of the area. The owner of the villa gave us some great recommendations on where to go and where to eat, answered every question promptly and the management were on hand at all times. It’s in a great position with easy access to the I4 and all theme parks. I would absolutely recommend this villa to anyone and hope to stay again. Many Thanks Joan for the loan of your wonderful villa.??

5 Star holiday home
Just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at Joan’s villa. The house is superb beautifully decorated and furnished throughout (only wish our own home was the same!!)
Location was ideal for the parks so the kids were happy , not to far to the outlet shopping for my wife and lots of good quality golf courses nearby for me. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Can’t wait to go back next year!

Wonderful Stay in FL!
We recently had a fantastic stay at "Casablanca!" The property is conveniently located in the Orlando area with a wealth of restaurants and attractions within easy access. The pool and outdoor setup was ideal for a relaxing few days in Florida. The house itself is extremely clean and beautiful. It was so nice to have everything we needed right there for us! We truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return. Thank you Joan!

5 star luxury
I stayed in Casa Blanca in July 2018 for the first time and quickly booked again for July 2019! Casa Blanca is the perfect villa for families and couples. The rooms are so modern and spacious and everything in and around the villa is looked after and in perfect condition.
The bedrooms and beds and so comfortable and the pool and jacuzzi are the perfect place to chill out.
The villa is in a perfect location - close to Disney and fabulous shops and restaurants. We really loved our holiday here and we cannot wait to go back!!! Thank you!

Thank you Heather for the lovely review and so pleased that you booked to stay in Casa Blanca again. There is a new addition of a Pool Table since your last visit - so enjoy! Thanks for mentioning the comfortable beds as that is something I think future guests like to know. Casa Blanca looks forward to your July visit. All the best and thanks again for the review, very much appreciated. x
We have stayed in various villas in Florida (6 different ones now). I stayed in this villa with my partner and two teenage daughters. This villa is by far the nicest we have stayed in so far. Attention to detail in every corner, every thing was spotlessly clean and tidy and had the homely touches. The kitchen is equipped and home from home with plenty of cutlery and plates. A nice touch was a basket full of fluffy pool towels just by the patio doors. All tv’s are smart tv’s and easy to log into Netflix (great for teenagers!). All in all a wonderful place to call home for two weeks. We honestly couldn’t fault it. The owner is a super lady too friendly approachable and cannot do enough for you. Amazing 5 stars we will be back ??

A huge thanks to Faye and Mike for this great review. So happy that you felt 'at home' and that's what its all about! You were lovely guests to have. Thanks again and hopefully see you next year!
This villa is amazing, it's decorated so well by Joan and she looks after this villa to make sure its perfect for guests! The pool area is lovely and very relaxing, and the bedrooms are all very very comfy. Whenever, I travel somewhere I always take into consideration cleanliness and the smell of the villa too, this was definitely 10/10 and was very clean and smelt fresh which I love. My mum wanted to book this villa again with Joan for may 2020 however unfortunately it is already booked! so gutted but will definitely be coming back here soon!!! :)

What a wonderful stay we had in "Casa Blanca!"
What a wonderful stay we had in "Casa Blanca"! This exceptional villa has been completely refurnished, painted and decorated throughout to an extremely high, luxurious standard, while still maintaining a comfortable, welcoming feeling.
The owner has described the place in detail - however, it's even better than the descriptions and photos! Jaw dropping as you enter. Every thought has been put into the furnishings and décor - everything you might need for a fabulous Florida vacation has been provided....from comfortable beds, to kitchen equipment, to fluffy bath and pool towels, many smart tvs and comfortable dining and seating areas, not to mention the wonderful outdoor pool and spa lanai, overlooking tranquil, landscaped gardens with an abundance of wildlife to see.
It has easy access to shops, restaurants, theme parks, and for the golfers, plenty of courses nearby.
AAAH! All good things come to an end, but we hope to be back soon!
