Meet the owner

Mike and Michelle Walden

We are Mike & Michelle Walden and we live in Staffordshire, UK.

Our first visit to Florida was way back in 1983 when our daughters Emma was 3 years old and Danielle just 8 months. Our son Matthew was born in July 1985 and Florida soon became our annual holiday destination offering everything that a young family could want.

The children all loved the magical theme parks, the rollercoaster’s, the weather and also being able to see our relatives who live towards Tampa. Once we were bitten with the Florida bug we decided to buy our villa ‘Sunshine View’.

Many members of our family and friends have stayed at the villa and it has given us all perfect holidays with so many happy memories of spending quality time together relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of Orlando.

Many of our guests have now returned for second, third and even fourth visits. They tell us that the villa exceeds their expectations, is in a perfect location and has everything they could possibly need.

Why not take a look at our advert and don’t miss the opportunity of staying at ‘Sunshine View’


For privacy reasons, the marker on the map shows the The Abbey at West Haven community location and not actual villa location.


When planning your dream holiday to Florida why settle for anything but the very best?

“Sunshine View”, our stunning and spacious luxury pool home is ideally situated on the small private gated community of “The Abbey” at West Haven and boasts one of the premier vistas in Orlando, as it backs onto acres of breathtaking and ever changing tropical wildlife and wetland conservation.

Fully featured throughout and professionally styled and designed to exceed your expectations, our beautifully appointed residence boasts some truly incredible features which you and your family will be able to enjoy when you stay as our guests at “Sunshine View”. They include:

Complimentary PC with Wireless Internet Access
Complimentary Dual control Play Station 2 & great PS2 games
Complimentary Dual control Nintendo Wii & games
Complimentary X-Box 360
Complimentary BOSE sound dock
Complimentary 4 IPhone/IPOD/Radio alarm clocks
Complimentary 5 DVD players with selection of 100+ films for all ages
Complimentary Remote controlled cable TV in all bedrooms
Complimentary A generous selection of pool toys and inflatables
Complimentary Books, games, puzzles and Disney toys
Complimentary Baby equipment (highchairs, strollers, baby monitor, travel cot/cribs)
Complimentary Hairdryers in all bedrooms

We appreciate that your vacation time is valuable, which is why our attention to detail is second to none. So come and experience our wonderful home and fabulous hospitality for yourselves at “Sunshine View”.



From the very moment you turn into The Abbey at West Haven and enter through the sweeping electronic gates, you will realise that you have arrived somewhere very special indeed.

This exclusive community, located just 3 minutes from the prestigious Champion's Gate Golf Club on the southern elevation of CR54, accommodates “Sunshine View” as one of its most spectacular and premier properties. As your eyes take in the splendour of the lush tropical landscaping and the pristine brick paved walk ways, you will sense what a truly special place you have discovered.

Indeed, there are just 58 executive homes located on this exclusive single road, each designed so that no home backs onto any others. “Sunshine View”, as the name suggests, enjoys breathtaking sunrises over the ever changing tropical and wetland conservation to the back of the property and the rarity of not being overlooked from the rear.

So why not watch the hypnotic wonder of the birth of a brand new Florida day, every day, when you stay as our guests in one of the most beautiful and celebrated locations in central Florida.

With the magical delights of Walt Disney World a mere 10 minutes away and other major theme parks, attractions and championship golf courses also close at hand, you will realise that when you stay at “Sunshine View”, you really can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Pool & Jacuzzi

If outdoor living is one of the highlights of your vacation, then you will absolutely adore our magnificent and exceptionally spacious pool deck, furnished with quality weatherproof sun loungers, table and chairs and a cooling exterior fan to afford you a refreshing gentle breeze and momentary respite from the glorious Florida sunshine. Perfectly appointed for al fresco dining, our pool deck is also a wonderful location for any meal especially when taking advantage of those temperate mornings and balmy Florida evenings.

Our oversized tiled pool is one of the most popular features of “Sunshine View” and with subtle underwater lighting, allows you the opportunity to relax and have fun even after the sun has set and the stars have made their glimmering nightly appearance.

A particular favourite of our adult guests, our revitalizing in ground 7ft circular spa with attractive waterfall feature, will help to soothe any tired muscles and aching joints and ensure a wonderful night’s sleep after a long hard day of theme park hopping, golf or retail therapy. As an added bonus for our guests both young and young at heart, we also provide a great selection of fun pool toys and inflatables for your enjoyment.

Our entire pool area is fully screened to protect you from any troublesome bugs and as an added feature rarely seen in other rental homes, we are delighted to provide full bathroom facilities on the deck including your own private cabana shower.

Games Area

Guaranteed fun for all ages, our superb games area will keep both young and old entertained for hours, as you demonstrate your skills over a wide variety of games, including American pool on our beautiful professional 8ft slate bed pool table, brand new Nov 15 table tennis table and the ever popular electronic darts, which with their child friendly non pointed tips, are especially suited for younger players.

Family Room

Unlike anything you are likely to find in the UK, our fabulous family room has the advantage of magnificent triple glass sliding doors, which look out over the lanai and glistening pool to the stunning conservation and natural wetlands beyond. Effectively this wall of glass allows the beauty of nature’s vista into the room and creates a stunning and ever changing backdrop for the whole family to enjoy.

Here for your comfort, you will find three sumptuous sofas to help you relax, as you kick back after a busy day of park hopping or playing one of the many championship golf courses in the immediate vicinity.

Located here for your viewing pleasure, is our brilliant large screen, LG 55” HD TV with direct High Def feed, together with a fantastic selection of 100+ DVD movies to keep everyone entertained for hours.

Loft Lounge/Den

Having a magnificent view of the conservation area and ever changing wetlands to the rear of the house, and also overlooking the open plan lounge and dining area below, this really is an ideal place to utilise as an official “chill out” zone !

We have provided a super soft sofa bed (which can be used if necessary as an additional bed, dependant upon guest numbers), a further sofa, an elegant designer coffee table and matching decorative lamps, to create a perfect place for some quiet “down time”.

However, should the need strike and you simply cannot be away from your emails or the internet during your vacation, you may use our high speed WiFi internet connection free of charge, from anywhere in the villa.

On the dresser, you will find your very own 42" remote controlled cable TV & DVD player, so you can take a little time, if time were needed, to snuggle down and catch up on the days events or maybe enjoy a favourite blockbuster movie before settling down to sleep.

Large double sliding glass doors are an attractive feature of this room, giving you your own private access to the sun drenched lanai & refreshing pool just outside your window.

Very Enjoyable Time

5.0 / 5

Everything was so easy to arrange with Michelle. Clear and concise details of what was needed to complete the booking and then precise directions and instructions about arriving at the villa.

We were a party of 5 Adults and 3 children (6 to 10), there was ample space and very comfortable furnishings. When the kids weren't in the pool they took advantage of the games consoles and the numerous dvds.

Travel to the Parks is easy, and many restaurants within 10 minutes, either along the 192 or down the 27.

A really good holiday was had and the villa certainly played a big part in that!

5 Stars for the wonderful house.

5.0 / 5

My family, and I, over the years have rented many houses in the Disney area, most of which were decent. This house surpassed, by far, all of the others! Every amenity you would ever want in a "home away from home" is present, making it a wonderful vacation living space. Kudos to the Waldens for providing us with living quarters that added so much to our most enjoyable vacation experience.
