Our family holiday to Florida over Easter 2015 was fantastic. The villa is superb, exactly as advertised, very well appointed, spacious and spotless. Great location, approx 30 mins drive from Orlando Int Airport, 15 mins to the Disney parks, 25 mins to Sea World, Aquatica and 35 mins to Universal and Universal Islands. The pool area at the villa is great, plenty big enough for the kids to swim and cool down after a busy day at the parks and a welcome respite from the Disney crowds. Our boys loved the games room too, basketball, ping pong, pool, all great fun. The 192 is the main road to the Disney parks and this has lots of restaurants and supermarkets all the way along, so everything you need is on your doorstep. We were very impressed with the owners, they were very helpful both before and during the holiday. Rob responded very quickly by phone and email to our queries. Could not be more pleased with our holiday and very highly recommend this villa to anyone looking to visit Disney or Florida in general.
I know I have gave 5 stars for every section but honestly I could not give a 4 for anything outstanding villa and we have been to Florida many times and this villa beats them all hands down thank you for a great villa
We have just returned to the UK after having a fantastic stay at The Haven in Clermont - Orlando. The whole booking process through Villa Renters was very easy & as soon as we had booked we were mailed directly by the owners (in this case UK based) & had constant contact with them up until the date we travelled. As for the villa itself - we dont think the pictures do it justice - it is beautiful - very large - all rooms were an ideal size for us (as a family of 4 we did not even use one of the bedrooms) - with flat screen TVs in all rooms. Kitchen was well equipped with all utensils / pans / plates / glasses etc - fridge / freezer was enormous and the whole house was well air conditioned. The pool area was lovely & was great to sit outside after a long day at the parks relaxing with a drink whilst the kids used the pool. Jacuzzi was nice to have as well for further relaxation. As for the location - approx 50 mins from Orlando airport & no more than 30 mins from both Disney & Universal parks (you must hire a car - but the whole airport experience is superb in collecting & returning the hire car). There is a huge Walmart store within walking distance and many restaurants within a 10 minute drive.
All in all - we cannot recommend this villa highly enough & would happily return again.
Well what can i say,on arriving at the haven we were really pleased to see it looked just like the pictures! so no disappointment there.
The night before we we due to arrive i received a phone call from the owners saying that the air com was broken and unrepairable but was being replaced the next day they were concerned that the villa would not be cool enough and had put a plan in place had that been the case ,but once we had arrived it was all working and lovely and cool.
We only had one problem with a shower head that was leaking once notified the management company came out within hours and had it sorted.
The owners also rang and left a message checking we had settled in ok,which we thought was a nice touch.
As stated in the advert Disney really is not far away but time could depend on traffic but generally did not take long to get to,Universal is a little further but still reachable in a good time.
Bush gardens is well worth the 50min drive, feeding the giraffes was an amazing experience as was swimming with dolphins at Discovery Cove.
The days were long and hot so there was nothing better then coming home for a dip in the pool which down to some good planting by the owners keeps the area private if not you would be very over looked and would not be quite as private as you imagined.The children made use of the pool morning and night and are really missing it now we are home, i on the other hand made the most of the hot tub (which can not be used unless you pay for heat) after hours of walking miles there was nothing better then relaxing with a glass of wine!
The villa really was home from home but with much bigger bedrooms it was great not having to over pack taking towels hairdryers etc there was plenty supplied .The washer and dryer meant we did not need to take 3 weeks worth of clothes which left more room for shopping !
The pool toys and games room kept the children entertained on rest days which you do need,The space and comfort is why we chose a villa holiday over hotel and it more then lived up to our expectations .
So the big question , would we recommended the Haven Villa ? most defiantly .Would we go back ? oh yes (the 6 yr old has asked every day).
This property is positioned closely to everything you go to Orlando for and within a lovely gated complex. The complex is clean, has a lovely pool and feels safe. The villa is great, spacious, clean and very well equipped. The owners contacted us as soon as we arrived by telephone to check if everything was ok and were very responsive when we had any questions or problems which were resolved quickly. I would thoroughly recommend this villa.
We stayed at the High Grove villa for 17 nights from January 21 until February 7. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend it to anybody. Both before and during our stay we were contacted by the owner Rob, who gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants and places to visit nearby. The service received from the owners was excellent, any queries or problems we had were handled immediately. The location could not be better and is close to all amenities such as supermarkets and restaurants, with Disney approximately 15 min drive away. After long days at the Parks, arriving back at the villa felt like home as it was very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. I would highly recommend this Villa and I would definitely rent this home again.

Firstly i need to say what an absolute pleasure Rob was to deal with from day 1. Full of information and help even before i asked any questions, which were answered almost straight away (within a day or two minimum, normally only a few hours).
Now, the Villa, what can we say, beautiful!!! I have only had experience of one other villa in Florida but this one topped it by far! Exceptionally clean and tidy, plenty of everything you need. The layout is perfect, it was brilliant having the upstairs (17 stairs, as the kids kept telling me!), it made it feel like a home going off to sleep. The bedrooms were wonderful, as were the beds, the kingsize is massive!! Could not fault it at all! The aircon was lovely, didnt notice it until you went outside, if that make sense, a good thing, never too cold or nosiy!! Kitchen, utility room, games room, all perfect!
Pool - We opted for the heated hottub as a treat but didnt use it as often as wed liked but thats just a time thing, nothing more! The actual pool is brilliant, needless to say the kids spent 90% of awake time spent in the villa in it!! 5 of us comfortably played about in there with enough room. Deck area ideal, plenty of seating and beds, lovely sunshine in the morning, disappearing late into the evening (but you can go on the front porch in the evening as well if you want more sun!).
Location - Ideal, Walmart 5 minutes away (walkable, we did it a few times, 20 minutes or so), Devennys bar at the Estate entrance which was lovely, food great, entertainment great (having this bar was a plus when we booked as i know some places dont have somewhere where you can walk to in the evening). Theres a Macdonalds, KFC etc walkable as well. Very straight forward to get to the parks, all within 15-30 minutes away, you could easily find them without Sat Nav.
If ever we returned to Florida then i wouldnt hesitate in contacting Rob again, although itd imagine theyd be fully booked, and if not then they should be!!!
Thank you once again Rob and Caroline for allowing us the share your villa and making our holiday perfect!!
The Haven Villa is ideally located in High Grove at the junction of the Hwy 27 and the 192 meaning that the parks and the I4 are a short distance away. Nearby are a number of supermarkets and restaurants, (walking distance to Wal-Mart). Just along the 192 a number of new restaurants have opened including the renowned Olive Garden and Bahamma Breeze, ensuring that you do not to travel far for an excellent meal or have good quality on your way back from the parks.
The villa is a home from home with everything you need, including loads of plates, cutlery, pool towels etc, which sometimes you find lacking at other villas. Hours were spent having fun in the games room. Though the pool is east facing we were able to get the sun almost all day and until the sun goes down you can still sunbathe at the one side of the pool deck. That was in March when the sun is lower so in summer I would imagine sunbathing opportunities are even more plentiful. What particularly pleased me was the pool being heated to the right temperature, not bath temperature like others seem to do! There is an excellent hot tub if you wish that type of relaxation.
The community of High Grove is well maintained and secure. The club house has a pool and gym for use by guests, plus free wi-fi.
In all up there with the best villa we have been to and highly recommended.
