HAY FAMILY HOLIDAY
Just returned from family holiday to Stewart & Angela's fabulous villa in the Shires at West Haven. Can't fault villa in any way, upon arrival spotlessly clean and a few starter treats in the fridge!! Pool heat was brilliant as used the pool and spa most days, pool cleaned every Wednesday. Villa in great location for several restaurants and supermarkets. Stewart & Angela were great to deal with from the initial booking, providing excellent directions and information. Hope to book with them again in the near future and would highly recommend this villa as we have been visiting Orlando for the last 20 years and this villa is definitely one of the best we have stayed in. Thanks again Susan & Scott Hay

The details for getting there & entry etc were excellent & we cannot thank you enough for making the process from enquiring about booking to completion of our visit so well organised & simple. Being able to relax in your own pool & spa after a busy day at a theme park is absolute bliss, especially when my 4 year old discovered the pool toys! Will definitely be visiting again- the villa made our holiday

Rental Villa - Fantastic holiday in orlando
What a fantastic rental home you have. From the pictures we expected much and we where not disappointed at all. We where a family of 7 persons and there where room enough for everyone. We paid for the pool to be warmed up and the kids loved it - dont miss that if you are going in feb. The Villa had everything we needed and more. Everything worked and was upgraded. The kitchen had all we needed. We played tennis several times and rackets and balls was also in the villa for free. The teenagers and parents used the nice pool table in the garage. We can give our best recommendations. We visited Disney, Universel Studios, Adventure Islands, Dicovery Cove (interaction with delfins), Sea World, Kennedy Space Center and had several home and some shopping days. A Fantastic holiday.
When we startet planning our vacation we had many questions and the owner was always helpful and kind to give fast and complete answers which was very helpful to us!
A very good experience!

The information pack provided by our hosts was comprehensive and clear. We had no trouble finding the Villa or all the nearby amenities. The Villa was absolutely perfect for us; it was well laid out, very clean and comfortable. I'm a bit of a clean freak so walking into the Villa and finding it in such good condition was a really fantastic start to our holiday. Our hosts also provided free Wi-Fi which was great as we only brought our Kindle's with us. The pool was fabulous – we opted to have it heated and it was worth every penny. We are regular visitors to Florida and have never stayed in the same place twice but we would not hesitate to return to the Villa if it was available.

Just returned and had a wonderful stay at this villa. As previous reviews stated, great upgraded furniture, spotlessly clean, sun on pool all day and my son and husband loved the pool table. Great wide screen tv and loved the leather settees.
Very good communication with owners before and after rental. We have stayed in two other villas on the estate and found this one to be the best in terms of luxuries and even had free use of sat nav, which we ended up not needing.
All in all would definitely return and are already thinking about it for next year.

A little gem
We have holidayed in Orlando for the past 10 years and can safely say this is the best villa we have stayed in. In fact we loved the villa so much last year, we returned again for holidays this year.

Strongly recommended to anyone, you will not be disappointed!

This was our first family holiday to Orlando and any fear we had about horror story accomodation was put to rest after opening the door to this villa. The location is superb, security is assuring and the villa is very well appointed. Directions from the airport were fantastic and the sat nav left for guest use is such a brilliant idea. The pool was amazing and heated to just the correct temperature. Angela and Stewart were fantastic in the run up to our holiday answering all questions and providing lots of information to help us along. Even in the villa Angela and Stewart have left guide books which are a great help.
We have already given out the details to friends as we have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Reviewer name: Lisamcow, Formby, merseyside.
On our arrival on the 14th of December 2011 after a long tiring Virgn flight with no entertainment and a delay in getting our hire car all thoughts were that it could be a jinxed Christmas.
After leaving the airport the weather was hotter than normal for the time of year and the roads were quiet with a touble free transfer to the shire so maybe things were not as bad as we thought.
Then after pulling onto the drive and opening the front door all our party were blown away as previous photographs had not done the villa enough justice!
Clean, spacious, modern, well equipped and a Christmas tree which our grand daughter whooped with delight at!
The spar, pool and deck area were also well equipped and very clean. Even without pool heat the water was welcoming for this time of year and enjoyed by all.
The weather remained hot up until christmas with the villa a welcome retreat from the baking heat. With the kitchen so well equipped it was an ease to prepare and serve a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
Now it was time to leave and everyone felt sorrow as the villa had become a true home from home!!
Thank you Angela and Stewart from early enquiry through to departure you were genuinely a pleasure to deal with and your villa was second to none and I hope all your future guests look after it and value the high standards you have set and we can truely recommend it 100%.

Best of the Best
We have stayed in many villas in the past 12 yrs of visiting Orlando but this one is truely the best in every way. Ideally located 1 mile from Championsgate, 10-15min drive to disney, easy location to the I-4 only 45 mins to Busch Gardens.
The house is situated on a quiet gated community and visitors have access to club house pool, gym and tennis courts.
The Villa is simply perfect the owners are lovely people to deal with and have put a lot of thought into equipping the villa to suit every persons needs. From welcome pack, fully equipped games room with TV and ipod tower, x box(great for the kids - old and young!) even hair straighteners!!. Bedrooms and decorated to a high standard and the open planning living area extremely spacious.
We loved the pool deck which received sun all day long and the spa and pool are perfect. We even watched the sun set whilst cooking steak on the BBQ. The owners have clearly sourced an an excellent management company the villa was immaculate on arrival and they too were excellent to deal with. We have certainly found a winner and are currently looking to return in 2012.

***The Perfect Florida Villa!***
We stayed at this beautiful brand new villa for 15 nights 17/3/2011 - 01/4/2011 and we cannot say enough good things about it, its owners, and the management company. It is located a very short drive thru the main gates at Champions Gate and is immaculate condition. It is fully loaded with all essential items and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make this villa feel like a home-from-home! Very safe community, alarmed, excellent location from Disney (10 min driving to gates) close to all shops and round the corner (by car) to a Walgreens, Publix, Chili’s, BP petrol station. This was our 15th trip to Orlando, our 4th in a pool/villa - this has been the best by far because it actually felt like home! We did not want to come home. In summary... Perfect Home, Perfect Owners, Perfect Weather (almost), Perfect Holiday! We will definitely be back!!.
