Luxury Five Bedroom, Four Bathroom Villa With Rear Views Over Conservation Area.
Arthur & Erica Dodd
About Arthur & Erica Dodd
The property is owned by the husband and wife team of Arthur and Erica. We live in the UK but fell in love with Florida many years ago when our children were young and wanted to come to Disney. Since that time we've had holidays many times on the East coast of the USA but finally decided to buy a villa in the Orlando area of Florida. Arthur is now 64 years of age and whilst he is still working it won't be long until we finally retire and spend a lot more time in this lovely villa. The photo is of Erica and Arthurs' parents who visited in Nov 2013. They love anything different and we took them on an airboat trip at 'Boggy Creek' which is something not to be missed during your visit to Orlando. (Would you believe that Arthurs' father is 93 years of age?)
Arthur & Erica Dodd purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Arthur & Erica Dodd chose West Haven
We purchased 'Sanctuary View' in Feb 2013 after spending considerable time viewing properties in the Orlando area. We were looking for a spacious five bedroomed luxury villa close to the Disney area but we wanted something that would allow us to relax in natural surroundings that gave us some peace and quiet. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to purchase 'Sanctuary View' because it really is in a great location. Not only is it a short drive from Disney and all that Orlando has to offer but it is in such a quiet location that you wouldn't believe that one of the worlds largest theme parks is only 15 minutes drive away! Finding the property is very easy as it is only five minutes away from I4. Full directions and access codes to the property are supplied.
What makes this Villa unique
When we purchased 'Sanctuary View' we did so with the intention of living here for at least three months every year ourselves. As such the property had to meet some fairly demanding requirements. It had to be spacious, well designed with ample bathrooms on a quiet gated community close to the action of Orlando and the theme parks. We also wanted a private pool deck with views over a conservation area and situated on a cul-de-sac if possible. Well we managed to meet all of our requirements with 'Sanctuary View.' The property is very spacious and can accommodate a party size of ten with ease. The bathroom layout is very family friendly and there is space for everyone. We have had some excellent reviews and many of our guests return year on year so they must enjoy our villa :) We're sure you will too! One feature of the property that we really love is the fact that there are no rear neighbours which allows views to the rear of the property over the conservation area. It is very peaceful and some regular visitors are a family of Sand Cranes that are wonderful creatures.

Nice large home that is well furnished and maintained. We were here in 2014 and again in 2019 and both times the owner called from the UK to be sure we were settled in. That was a nice touch. The only thing I would caution people about is the shower in the master bedroom because the floor is very slippery.
Thanks for the review. We hope to welcome you back soon.
Great Disney Vacay House
This house was perfect for our group. Clean and modern, it had everything we needed for 2 weeks in town. Beds were comfortable and linens nice quality. The gated community was safe and enjoyable with many other rentals and families with kids. We were about 15-20 min from the Disney parks which was nice, able to wind down after hectic over stimulation. Restaurants and grocery stores were within a 5 min drive and the Champion's Gate area is gorgeous. I would highly recommend this rental.
Many thanks for your kind words my wife and I hope to welcome you back soon.

Amazing villa in an excellent location
Lovely clean villa with everything you need in a wonderful location, overlooking conservation area. Great swimming pool with plenty of room to relax and take in the views of the conservation area and the occasion hot air balloon. Close to Champions Gate, with restaurants and shops, not far from all theme parks. Wonderful communication from the owner with any information needed. Would definitely book again.
Wonderful villa in a great location
Lovely clean villa, reasonably priced, in a great location, close to Champions Gate with restaurants and shops, within easy reach of the theme parks. This villa is great, plenty of space and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay great.
Spend lazy days around the fabulous pool overlooking conservation area, wonderful to watch the sun set.
The owners have been quick with all corespondence and have given any help or information without issue. We would definitely recommend this villa and will be going back.
Many thanks for your comments which are very much appreciated. We do try to provide our guests with a true "home from home" experience at a reasonable price. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Great house, accommodating owners
This awesome house is located in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood and is exactly as pictured.
The owners are very accommodating. Communication with Arthur was always smooth. He usually replies emails in a few hours.
We were a party of ten and the property was big enough for all of us to have some privacy. We particularly enjoyed the pool area, although the kids loved the X-Box nook and the games room.
The property is very clean and well-maintained. No doubt, this is the best housed we have stayed at. We would absolutely return if our travels take us to Orlando in the future.
We highly recommend staying at this property!
Thank you, Arthur for making us feel at home even though we were very far away from home.
Many thanks Maria. We are so happy you enjoyed our villa. You are always welcome back.
THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY DESTINATION
There's something for everyone in Florida and the Orlando area. The theme parks are obviously a big attraction for kids of all ages. (I'm 60 now and I still classify myself as a kid and still love to try out the new rides at Disney and Universal :) Seaworld is another great attraction along with all the super restaurants along 'I-Drive.' Golf is great all year round and there are some super courses close to the villa. I've had birdies on a few of them so I should know. The shopping in the Orlando area is awesome, just remember to leave a little extra room in the suitcases on the way out, for those purchases when you are here!
The weather is great all year round and there is a general holiday feeling about the whole state.
Of course after a busy day at the parks, in the shopping malls or on the golf course you'll need somewhere relaxing to come home to. Our villa has lovely sunsets over the pool in the afternoon, lots of comfy chairs and loungers and is a perfect place to kick off your shoes and 'chill out!'
