Lovely villa and location.
We loved this villa! We have stayed in many in Florida over the years and this is probably the best. The villa has everything you need and is in a great location for the parks and other attractions. The villa is beautifully furnished and extremely clean. The kids loved the pool area and the games room!
We will definitely use this villa again.
The owners were also very helpful with any questions.
Thanks from the Traynors!

Hi Traynor family, thank you for your review! We were delighted you enjoyed the villa so much and I am so sorry I could not accommodate you for next Easter again (our most popular dates). Should you wish to return again please do not hesitate to contact us as you were the perfect house guests! Love The Todd's x
We have rented over 20 different vacation villas and thought we had seen the best until we stayed at Susan and Colin's. This villa certainly is the very best.
The booking process was very simple, the directions and instructions were easy to follow.
The villa is perfectly located, in a lovely quiet conservation area and in easy reach of the theme parks.
It is very well maintained and is spotlessly clean with everything you need and more! The photographs don't really do the villa justice.
The pool area is a great place to relax and the TV outside was a bonus allowing my husband to watch Premiership Football and enjoy the outdoors!
We were very sad to find the villa was already booked for our next trip in June but rest assured we will be checking with Susan and Colin first in future. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your fantastic villa

Hello to the Black's, thank you for the review! We were delighted you enjoyed your stay and certainly sounds like you managed to relax! Yes the TV's outside the pool have been a big hit in both villas so we are glad we went ahead with the installations. I was sad that we could not accommodate you in June but please do visit any of our villas in the future as you were the perfect house guests! Love The Todd's x
It can't get any better than this!
We have just returned from a most amazing time in this villa. Thank you to Susan and Colin for making the whole process really smooth from start to finish. The villa is immaculate and clean and it comes complete with everything you need, you can't really ask for more! It is so well positioned for everything you need. It's within close proximity to all the major roads you need to get to. We really couldn't be any happier. Can't wait to go again!

Fantastic Villa, Highly Recommed
Absolutely delighted to have stayed in such a lovely, comfortable villa. Colin and Susan have gone the extra mile to try to make things as comfortable as possible and provide everything guests need. The TV outside was a bonus for my husband who got to watch the Ryder Cup while dipping his feet in the pool. I would recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a safe, comfortable base and we definitely will return. Thank you Colin and Susan for being a pleasure to deal with and hopefully speak to you again soon.

September 2016 stay
This is our second stay in Susan and Colin's villa. The villa is in a peaceful location within the West Haven community with great access to the I4 for all those visits to the theme parks and shops! The villa has everything you need for a perfect holiday - the photos don't lie! It has been easy to communicate with Susan & Colin with prompt responses to all e-mails. We had a great stay and hope to visit again in the future.

As ever please contact us if you wish to return for yet another relaxing break! Love the Todd's x
Fabulous villa in an excellent location!!
Well this is the 3rd time we've booked with Susan and Colin and as usual everything was superb.
After many, many visits to Orlando over the past 20 years the location, size and style of this villa suit us perfectly.
The interior is furnished to a very high standard with all eventualities covered and provided for, from strollers to cool boxes!
After having just returned, we have re-booked for early 2017 and can't wait to visit again!

Hello Bulman family! Thank you so much for the review! We feel after you both visiting us after 3 times we should fly out to the villa and meet you face to face to thank you for choosing us time and time again but wishful thinking eh lol! We hope to hear from you again for another trip and you know that as ever you are more than welcome anytime! Love the Todd's x
This villa is set in a secure gated area which is very private. The villa itself is extremely comfortable and clean with a beautiful pool and jacuzzi with the added bonus of a large outside tv. It's tempting to ignore the parks and just stay at the villa but, if like us you do go to the parks ,the location of the villa means that you can be at them within a very short time. Publix is close by which makes grocery shopping easy and there are plenty of restaurants nearby too.
I would fully recommend this villa and we hope to return there soon.

Hello to the Hutton Family, thank you very much for the kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed the villa and felt so relaxed you wanted to stay there rather than visit the parks lol. I hope you got to enjoy the 2 new restaurants that opened up nearby 'Millars Ale House and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers' unfortunately they were only just about to open as we were leaving at the end of June. Should you ever wish to return please be in contact as you were the perfect house guests and are more than welcome in any of the 2 villas! Love The Todd's x

Hi Ray and Sue, thank you so much for the kind review and thank you for your return stay with us! It was a real pleasure to actually be in Florida and have a chance to meet with our guests as this is something we do not get to do often. Should you wish to return to either villa please do not hesitate to contact us! Should you visit this villa again you will see a difference as we have just had the external villa painted and both trees removed at the back! Love The Todd's x
Another relaxing stay in this lovely villa
This was our second stay in this villa and once again we didn't want to leave. Ideally situated for Disney. Publix supermarket is minutes away and catered for all our needs. Plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from - you are spoilt for choice. The villa is immaculate ,very comfortable and very private . We hardly left the villa as we were so relaxed just staying around the private pool . Definitely worth a visit and we will be back

We've been going to Florida for many years, staying at many different villas and this one was the best we've been in. The villa was great and had everything you needed and more, very clean and plenty of toys for the pool which the kids enjoyed. The TV outside was great and spent many a night sat in the hot tub withe the ice hockey on. The villa is in a great location and we hope to use it again next year. The owners were a pleasure to dill with and very helpful.

Reviewer name: Bolwell Family, Wiltshire
To the Bolwell family, thank you for your kind review! We are so glad you had an amazing holiday and the boys enjoyed the pool. We have had to get a new TV at the pool so I assume our guests like to watch it a lot! Get in touch should you wish to return as you were the perfect hiuse guests!! Love the Todd's xx
We have stayed at other villas on 5 previous occasions in various locations around Kissimmee and Davenport areas, but this was by far the best! It was an easy booking process, easy to get there from Orlando International Airport, following the directions provided and on arrival, easy to access with the info provided. And what a great location! A few minutes from the I4, a Publix supermarket, other shops and easy to get to all areas. You can never be 100% sure when you book, that you are making the right choice, but you can be sure with this Villa, it gets a big thumbs up from us! West Haven and The Shire is so well looked after, quiet and peaceful, and this Villa is just superb throughout. The pool and spa was heated to just the right temperature, lovely! We had need to contact the management company, just a minor issue with the outside lights. I spoke with Deanna, very friendly and just a quick call to get it sorted, which is just what you want. All Excellent! Thank you to Susan and Colin, we would definitely like to return to this Villa (or maybe your other one?) on our next visit to Orlando.

Hi Austin family, thank you for your review! If you come come back we have some new additions around the corner .... They are just about finished a Red Robin gourmet burger restaurant and a Millers Ale House wish it had opened by the time we left but save something for next time! I agree with you on the management company we also had a few small issues and they were dealt with very promptly, they have been looking after villas for 28+ years so I suppose they know what they are doing and I also as an owner can not fault them!
Should you ever wish to return to either of our villa please do not hesitate to contact us! Love the Todd's xx
Amazing villa, Excellent location
Thus was our 3rd time staying at Colin and Susan's amazing vacation home. We just live it here. Everything you could possibly need and want to there. The kitchen is well stocked with all the amenities. The games room in the garage was also a big hit. We loved playing the air hockey. The villa was so clean and in the perfect location. The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful. Can't wait to hopefully return again.

Didn't want to leave!
We have just returned from the Todds beautiful villa , October 2015 and have had the most amazing time. We have been to Florida before and stayed in villas but the standard of this one is outstanding, we are already looking when we could return. Perfectly situated for Disney about a 10 min drive and just a little further to universal. The pool was just lovely and we enjoyed full days relaxing around it. At night the games room entertained us and our boys . If your considering a trip this villa will not disappoint at all . The slaters x

Well located and wonderful villa
Just returned from a lovely stay at this wonderfully located villa. A family of seven with plenty of room. The pool was used everyday and everything you could need was provided. Being in a conservation area we were really pleased to see the wildlife including two herons/cranes that visited us, plus birds of pray. All parks were within 20 minutes drive and a supermarket (publix), just five minutes away. We would certainly like to return in the future and thank the Todds for letting us stay.

Amazing villa fantastic location
We have stayed in a few villas in Orlando over the years but this one has gone to the top of the favourites list!! It looks great on the website but this still doesn't do it justice...we were blown away. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped, the pool and jacuzzi area were amazing, will never tire of the sound of the wildlife in the evening. The Shire is so peaceful, quiet and secure we had to drag ourselves away to the parks which were literally 15 minutes away!! Great supermarket nearby too!! Had some great meals on the 192 Cracker Barrel was a favourite this year..good food great value! Thank you Susan and Colin for sharing your beautiful home with us we hope to return soon!!

Hello to the Berridge family, thank you so much for the kind review! I had a wee chuckle when you mentioned how you had to drag yourself away to go places as this just sums it up!! The songs of the frogs in the lake you cannot beat and are very peaceful! I spend half of my time in the local supermarket and also bring a suitcase of food home ha ha. You were excellent when booking the villa and the whole process was so very easy. If you ever wish to return for some relaxation please give me a call/email and we can easily sort you out with dates in either villa. Love the Todd's xx
Will be back again.
We have stayed in Champions Gate before but this was by far the best villa that we have ever rented. Location was great for the parks, the house was immaculate and the pool and jacuzzi were big hits with the kids. Located next to the nature reserve the scenery and wildlife was amazing to look at. We wouldn't hesitate to come back and book the villa again. A fantastic house and a fantastic holiday.

We recently stayed at this wonderful villa for our holiday in Orlando. The location of this villa is perfect, about 30 minutes from Universal and 15 from Disney. The villa itself is amazing!! Having already stayed in villa around the corner, this villa felt like coming home. Everything is clean and spacious. We love, love, love the bedrooms, especially the master with its double bathroom and walk in closet. The kids loved having their own rooms and use of their own bathrooms (one en-suite and one next to the bedroom) The pool and hot tub were fab, and the games room a real hit.

What a fantastic villa! It easily met all of our expectations and the information detailed on the website is very accurate and in truth does not do it justice - it is even better in the flesh! Very comfortable and homely with everything we needed. The heated pool and hot tub were a particular big hit with our son, as was the air hockey in the garage, though dad is still the champion!! The location is very perfect - quiet yet close to shops / restaurants and only 15-20 mins from Disney and 30 mins from Universal. Susan and Colin were a pleasure to deal with and the booking process and info provided up front was second to none. We would highly recommend this villa and would certainly stay again when next in Orlando. Thanks for a great stay.

Hello Eaton Family! Thank you so much for your honest review! When you initially booked and asked about the pool/spa we just knew your little boy would love it the way our boys do! We purchased this second villa in The Shire due to the community and the location as we agree with you it is so handy for everything from restaurants to parks! Please feel free to contact us if you wish to return as you were perfect house guests! Love the Todd's x
This was our second time in Florida, we had previously stayed in a much larger Villa on the Windsor Hills resort as we had travelled with a much larger group so I wanted to find a Villa that would now suit us as a family of 4 but live up to the kids expectations and memories of the first time, after a LOT of searching I found this property through VR360 - I thought it was streets ahead of the rest I had seen and contacted the owner straight away, Susan was very easy to deal with from the outset and really helpful, the price I felt was also very reasonable for the quality and location compared to other villas I had seen, it took about 20 - 30 mins to get to Universal studios which was perfect, the surrounding area was lovely and had everything we needed for our stay. The Villa itself is certainly suitable for a family of 4 but could also easily cater for a larger group, it is even better in the flesh than the pictures show and I would highly recommend this property to anyone. I will be returning, not only did it meet the expectations of the children but it exceeded them and they actually preferred it to the original Villa we had used - all in all a complete success - Thank you

Reviewer name: Halford Family, Somerset, UK
Hello Sarah and Family! Thank you very much for your quick review despite leading a very busy schedule! I agree the villa would suit a larger family however, we recommend a maximum of 6 guests at any one time due to the villa being a single story. We have many guests that book both villas as the same time so they can still 'holiday' together but have their own private time which seems to work well. I am so glad the children were not disappointed as this would have made your life easier lol. Feel free to call us anytime if you wish to return as you know you are more than welcome in any of the two villas we have! Love the Todd's x
Superb holiday in beautiful home
We stayed in this villa in October as a family of 4. The villa has everything you could want and more. It was clean, spacious And beautifully furnished. The pool area is very inviting and is not overlooked by other villas. West haven is close to I4 for easy access to theme parks, shopping outlets etc. Champions Gate is 2 minutes away and has a Publix supermarket, chilis restaurant and a McDonalds. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we would love to stay here again in the future. The Cowan family.

Hello Cowan Family! Thank you so much for leaving us such a kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday, villa and the location. Should you ever wish to return to either villa please do not hesitate to contact me as you were the perfect house guests!!! Love the Todd's xx
WE'LL BE BACK.............
The villa is nicely decorated and modern. Bedrooms were very comfortable with flat screen T.V.'s which made it ideal for all ages. Pool and Jacuzzi were heaven at the end of a long day the pool heat was a bonus. We stayed here at the end of September and wouldn't hesitate to book again. We have been visiting Florida for over 20 years and this was our first stay in the Westhaven area and we loved it, gated, beautiful surroundings and very peaceful. 5 mins from I4 and 2 mins from H17. Publix down the road with a couple of resturants. Thank you for a wonderful stay hope to return next year.

This is a beautiful pool home in a great location. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The pool area is particularly nice as it is not overlooked. The villa is in the perfect location - just a short way from the I4 and US 27. There is a supermarket close by at Champions Gate and is @ 15min drive to get to the Disney parks. We had a great stay and hope to visit again.

Hello Petty Family! Thank you so much for your kind review! We are very lucky that both of our villas are not overlooked and offer privacy yet not too far away from the buzz of Orlando. Thank you for booking with us and do not hesitate to contact us if you should ever wish to return to any of our villas! Love the Todd's x
Lovely Villa, Great location.
The villa is nicely decorated with a modern theme. Good sized pool with a well needed Jacuzzi for our tired feet at the end of the day..
We stayed here at the end of August and wouldn't hesitate to book again. We have stayed in Westhaven before and love the area, especially the Applebees down the rd.
Thank you for a wonderful stay and fingers crossed we will be back next year. :)

Beautiful house in excellent area
We stayed here as a family of 4 for two weeks in August and had an excellent holiday. The house is well equipped, spacious, very clean and comfortable. It was the ideal place to retreat to after a busy day around the parks. The pool area is also well maintained and a good size. The games area was a great addition for the children to play in when the weather turned too wet to go in the pool. It is in a good location on a conservation site with lots of different wildlife. We had some very tall birds (a type of Crane) land on the front garden on one morning, yet it is only a short drive to local shops and some restaurants, and a few miles from Disney! This is a gated community which provides that extra peace of mind. We had no problems at all with the house when we were there and would certainly recommend this property to anyone. Thanks to Susan and Colin for sharing their home with us.

Hello Yates Family, thank you so much for leaving us this kind review! We are very lucky to have a management company and pool management team that have both been doing this for over 22 years! They certainly have never let our guests down and keep everything spotless. The Cranes I believe are sand cranes and they are actually very friendly, we often feed them by hand and have done for years. The wildlife is amazing around both villas because they are on the conservation sites, we often see turtles and the big alligator wandering about.please feel free to contact us at any time if you wish to return as you were the perfect house guests, thank you for enjoying our villa as much as we do! Love the Todd's xx
Better than Home
First of all Thanks to the Todds for sharing their home.
We had decided to go for a Villa rather than a hotel to allow us some space to relax after the inevitable hectic days around the theme parks and didnt want to be couped up in a little room sharing a pool with 100's of others.
We were disapointed by the villa offerings from the big tour operators, if you cant make it look nice in the brochure what is the reality going to be like?
This Villa is spacious, furnished and accessorised beautifully with all the mod cons you will need.Completely un-overlooked to the rear, giving a real home away from home feel. the gardens and surrounding public areas are perfectly manicured.
My Children particularly loved the games room and Pool area (they asked to stay rather than go to the parks!)
The area is quiet but all the essential ammenities are close by, including a Publix supermarket, restaurants etc. The parks are a short leisurely drive away.
We would return in a heartbeat.
Oh and the owners Colin and Susan were great and ever so helpful. Thanks!

West Haven Villa
We have just returned from a two week holiday at this lovely villa. We have been coming to Florida since 1980 so this was not the first villa that we have stayed in but it is one of the best. It was comfortable very clean and the pool heating was definitely the best and most efficient that we have encountered.
The villa is located in an ideal place for links to the I4 and Highway 27 so that getting around to the parks, supermarkets and restaurants is very easy.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and there was no fuss or problems in booking the villa and following our return home, the security deposit was returned very promptly.
Any issues that we had (and they were few) were dealt with very quickly and efficiently by the management company in Orlando and we were particularly impressed with their response and attitude especially when they were contacted on a public holiday in the States.
We would recommend a holiday in this villa and we would not hesitate to return there again.

My family and I have visited Florida many times, and this is probably one of the best villas we have stayed in. It was modern and homely with nice furnishings. We enjoyed sitting out by the pool at night you're not overlooked at all and was very peaceful. The spa we also very enjoyed. The villa was easy to find and not to far from the parks. Would definitely rebook.

Owner has done a fantastic job in refurbishing this villa. It was walking into a brand new property. West Haven is fabulous and The Shire is the nicest community in our opinion. We have been going to The Shire for around 6 years staying in various villas and this property is right up there with the best. Susan is wonderful to deal with, professional and reliable. You will not be disappointed staying here, that is for certain.

Hi Ullah Family! Thank you for leaving us a review on our new villa.

We have stayed at Susan and Colin's other beautiful villa within The Shires so we knew we woukdn't be taking any risks whatsoever in booking into their newest villa. We were not disappointed! The villa is decorated to the highest standard. Every room is interior designed and coordinated in their fixtures and fittings. The master suite is stunning and has a superking sized bed and adjoining on-suite. Calling it the on-suite is a bit of an insult really as it houses a full sized bath, huge walk in shower, separate toilet and a dressing room - heaven! The second 'master' suite us equally as stunning and gives direct access onto the pool area. The living areas were large and extremely comfortable and had a choice of two dining areas, living room with a huge leather suite and flat screen TV. There are flat screen TV's in all the rooms by the way. A games room is located in the garage with air hockey, snooker, darts and yet another TV and bar table and stools - the perfect place for kids (and adults) to spend some 'chill' time. The actual location of the villa is perfect and you are only a short ride away from the supermarket, restaurant, and access into the 27 or I4 which will take you to Disney. Although conveniently situated, it is still tucked away in a quiet little spot giving you a calming haven to retreat to after a busy day. I live the fact that the house is not overlooked at the pool area. Susan and Colin's management team are fantastic and always available. The two villas that Susan and Colin own are our first choice for a holiday rental in Orlando

The Shaw Family - Stay 19th Oct - 9th Nov 2012
Recently returned from a fantastic 3 week stay at this luxury villa along with my husband, 3 boys, aged 5,8 & 12 and my sister & niece (aged 13). Have to say this is an impressive villa in an ideal location and close to local shops/supermarket/restaurants including Macdonalds! The directions were straightforward and we had the benefit of Sat nav which we downloaded onto our TomTom before we arrived from UK which proved invaluable!! The villa was clean had a lovely homely feel. The bedrooms were all spacious with two massive en-suites ! even by American standards!The new leather sofa was great to just relax on and watch dvd's at the end of the day. The kitchen has plenty of utensils and also a coffee perculator and a huge brand new American style fridge/freezer & dishwasher.I liked the plastic range of disney cups, plates, bowls for the children as well as the normal ceramic ones for the grown-ups!There were also 6 beach towels provided for guests and loads of soft white towels for the bathroom. The villa has a separate utility room with washer & separate dryer - very useful. The boys used the pool table & air hockey in the garage which gave them some "space". The pool was a nice temperature and not overlooked.I liked how you could transfer the heat to the jacuzzi by adjusting the timer on the wall (it was so warm) The villa is sited near the end of a "cul de sac" with lots of space and is in a good, safe position as there is no passing traffic & the boys played outside with no worries about cars. We contacted the management team to query a few things and I found them extremely efficient and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Overall I would definitely recommend this villa as an ideal place to stay for a family holiday.

To the Shaw Family, thank you for your kind review! We are so glad you had such a fantastic holiday! It was nice to have a family with children for one of our first bookings! It is funny that you mention the childrens plastic wear, when we were setting up the villa we had you in mind being one of our first guests with children so we are glad you made great use of it! Our management company are fantastic and we could not do it without them! Thank you for booking with us and if you ever wish to return to any of the 2 villas please do not hesitate to contact us!

Can we swap homes!!!
This was a very last minute booking, one email to Susan asking about nearby hotels due to her other villa being booked she informed us she would open her new villa early and let us stay there!! Susan was very helpful and gave us all the information we needed about the villa and even after our holiday was very quick at sorting out return of deposit and making sure we had a great time.
We was so pleased when we turned up and the villa was exactly as described and brand new!!!
The villa was so clean and had everything we needed and more. The nice thing was its a very upmarket villa but it had a homely feel about it.
Management was brilliant, we couldn't work out how to use the wireless on our phone but we called Ivan (management) and he came over and sorted it that day, plus he went out of his way and told us where we should go etc which was very helpful.
The location is brilliant, we would go to the parks in the day then come back chill and spend the night round the pool, or even head back out to the parks.
Would highly recommend this villa to anyone!!

Hello Bender Family!! Thank you very much for being our very first guests to leave us a review! We are so glad that we have a fantastic management company to manage our villas as we would have never been prepared for your quick last minute booking so you could spend time with your family who were in our other villa!! The location we agree is perfect, you can spend all day in the parks or shopping then all evening/night in the pool/spa or even chilling out on the very big leather sofa watching movies! We have had the villas decorated to a standard with furniture that is upmarket but yet comfortable and inviting and we are glad this new villa has turned out a virtual mirror image as our other one! Considering you live in Australia everything from the booking to exchange of monies were very prompt and we thank you for that, should you ever wish to return to either of our villas please contact me as you are more than welcome!!
