Twin Bedrooms

Again these rooms offer good-sized accommodation and are tastefully decorated. Both rooms have large walk-in closets. To complete that magical feeling for our younger guests one of the rooms has a Disney theme.

The raised ceiling and large windows provide a light, airy and cool place to relax and the children to play, after hitting the theme parks. Whilst relaxing in the living room, the 8ft sliding doors offer views to the lanai and the inviting pool. For your entertainment, a remote 32in colour LCD cable TV, video/DVD and hi-fi system are provided.

Beautiful holiday villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed in this villa for three weeks and I have to say it is by far the best looked after villa we have ever stayed in. Every part of the villa was clean and tidy. It was comfortable and spacious and the pool and spa were just perfect. My wife had medical issues while there and John, the owner and James and Sarah were so supportive and helpful, thank you so much.
The pictures of the villa on this site really do not do it justice. It looks so much better in real life. We particularly loved the location and community it is located in, which was quiet and peaceful and there was lots of amazing wildlife to be seen all around. Would definitely book this villa again in the future.

Had an amazing family holiday, made even better with this property! Clean, comfortable, in a great location and quiet neighbourhood, easy to find and not a long drive home after a full park day. Good shops/facilities nearby at Champions Gate. Have already recommended this property!

What a find!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

It is a pity that the highest rating available is a 5 because this villa is worth so much more!! It has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. Very well equipped and furnished, fantastic pool, spa and sun deck. The villa is in a great location - supermarkets, restaurants and stores all close by and Disney parks a short drive away. West Haven is a gated, well maintained, quiet community. We had a fantastic stay and hope to be able to return soon!

Florida dreams @ west haven

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Once again we stayed at the villa , everything was spotless & dealing with John or the concierge Sue was simple & helpful( even during the hurricane!) We made good use of the hot tub after busy days out & have no hesitation recommending the villa to friends.
The location is good & it's very peaceful apart from the cranes (the bird type) giving us an early morning alarm call !
Will most definitely be staying at ' florida dreams ' on our next stay in orlando.
Thank you John for allowing us ( once again) to stay at your villa.

We absolutely loved this home. The pictures don't do it justice. Its so much larger in person. It was clean and well kept. The area was so quiet and peaceful. Pool area was spacious and water temperature was perfect. We only had one problem with the home and it was fixed quickly after letting property manager know. If you are looking for a clean, spacious and affordable home rent this place! We would gladly stay here again if we go to Florida.

Florida Dream is a beautiful, well kept villa in a quiet and safe gated community. Close to Disney Parks and a 20 minute drive to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. Great place to just relax and have a pool day, good local amenities and an ideal location to take a rest from the parks and venture further afield. Would love to stay again.

We booked very last minute not having used the website before so were a bit anxious. John put my mind at ease instantly during conversations prior to booking.
We booked and stayed for 12days 2 adults 2 kids age 5 and 8.
We have stayed in lots of areas and lots of villas around Florida and were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of this villa. It was just perfect for everything we needed.
It was clean and spacious and for the first time we actually spent alot of time by the pool and jacuzzi this time. The good thing about the jacuzzi was it was hot whenever you switched it on so when we came home late from parks or used it early morning it was always lovely and warm. The pool area was very clean also.
We had no problems what so ever and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

Florida dream

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This was our 4th trip to florida & 2nd time we have used Johns villa , he is a pleasure to do business with & answers any questions you have ( no matter how trivial)
The villa has everything you could want ( for both sunny days & the occasional rainy day ) pool & hot tub( which is a godsend for the feet after a day at the parks or all day shopping in the malls!) , games room in the garage. Spotlessly clean & in a good location.
We look forward to coming back & hiring the villa again.
The only reason I have rated it 4 stars is because I haven't stayed in another villa on our trips to the states.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone looking to hire.

We stayed at this home in Jan, it is just as described. It is more beautiful in person, the pics dont show just how nice this place is. Its great for privacy as both rooms with ensuites are on opposite sides of the living area, great when travelling with another couple. Everything you need is there, we didnt lack for anything (note; a bbq is not on site, but can be rented through management). The home was clean and fully ready for us when we arrived. There is a binder that explains everything you need to know eg: garbage days, how to work the pool/hot tub ets.
We travel to Florida 1-2x a year and I am thrilled we found this home. Most spa’s are just pool temp, but This place was amazing, it heated up like an actual hot tub. I tell ya, that made all the difference for us. I highly recomend this home, the beds are great, the area is quiet but close enough to everything you’d want.
Thank you John for making our vacation wonderful!!!

Amazing family holiday in Orlando

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had an amazing time this year in Orlando, John and Anne's villa is superb and has everything you'd ever need. It's well finished inside and has everything you'd need to make this a relaxing place or a base for your Orlando adventures. Location wise it's perfect, as it's close to both Disney and Universal parks as well as Orlando International Airport and you can use either US27 or the I-4 as again both main roads are located right next to you, so you have a choice if you find that traffic is busy in the I-4.

The pool and spa are perfect, I'd recommend getting the heating turned on for a little extra so you can enjoy the full effects of the spa. There's also a games room with foosball and table tenis as well as a pool table, and an excellent 55" LG TV that will allow you to watch cable or cast your Netflix for a bit of evening entertainment. Again there's so much close to where the villa is, you probably won't have time to watch any TV.

At Champions Gate there is a local Millers Ale House whis is only about $7 away in an Uber if you'd like to go for some drinks and a bite to eat, as well as Chilli's and Panera Bread. Also close by on the US27 is IHOP where you can get an excellent breakfast if you don't want to cook yourself.

This was my second time at Florida Dream and I'm already planning the 3rd. John goes above and beyond excellent as a host, very organised and knowledgeable and great to deal with, alwas answers any questions really quickly, can't recommend both John and the Florida Dream Villa enough.

Thanks again for sharing Florida Dream with us John and Ann!

All the best from our family to yours!

Have had a lovely stay in the villa. Very spacious, clean and well equipped. Good communication and welcome from the management company.

Provided us with a great base for our holiday and was well located for our trips to universal, sea world, Busch gardens, outlet shopping etc

We also had a day or two relaxing in the villa and enjoyed all the facilities including the pool and games room

Would definitely recommend and return :)

Thank you very much to John and Ann

Florida Dream

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hello John,
Just a quick note to say that we left your lovely villa bright and early this morning after having a very relaxing, busy and enjoyable week.

This is our 23rd visit to Florida over the last 18 years and have stayed in 20 different villas (some good and some not so good) and I can honestly say that I have felt the most comfortable in your villa. The internal house temperature was perfect, the beds comfortable and we have both slept like a baby all week.

With only being in the Orlando area for one week, we tend to try and cram in 2 weeks of enjoyment. The consequence of this is that we get very little time to enjoy the pool or games room. Maybe next time we should spend a little more time around the pool.

Just one thing to tell you (and I have left a note for the management company), in an attempt the help with the housekeeping, we put some towels in to wash on Thursday night. When it came to drying them, we attempted to use the tumble drier, but we couldn’t get the drier to work. Could have been operator error, but I thought I better mention it.

Your villa is a credit to you and I thank you for allowing us to stay in it.

The Villa really did surpass expectations, clean, well equipt, spacious, great location, the owners really have thought of everything!
Games room was a nice treat for those Florida rainy afternoons and he pool and jacuzzi were a god send in the heat!
Disney parks just 10 minutes drive, supermarket 5 minutes drive and loads of places to eat nearby.
Would absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of a trip to Florida! The owners are also very responsive to any questions you may have.
We will be back!!

Booking the villa with john was a simple process & nothing seemed to be too much trouble with my questions via Email. Something I was grateful for as I've never hired a property on our previous trips & john put my mind at rest.
About the villa - it is wonderful, plenty of room in all bedrooms & the living area , pool & spa is fantastic ( quick warm up time & lovely to sit in after a hard day at the Parks!) The games room has enough to keeps younger kids happy on wet days , pool table , darts , hockey table ETC.
My one suggestion would be a tv in every bedroom ( as suggested by my son) If they had this villa would get a five star rating from me - that's the only suggestion on an otherwise perfect stay.

Thank you john & Anne for allowing us the use of your villa , we will certainly use again when we return to florida

Thank you for the use of your wonderful villa. We have been to Florida many times but this year wanted a more relaxing holiday (no theme parks).
