We guarantee that you will never grow tired of watching the majesty and grandeur that nature has provided as the awe inspiring backdrop to your Florida vacation.
Whilst nature plays its part, we as owners of Bella Vista have gone the extra mile too, in order to offer our guests a simply stunning vacation home with all the luxury and convenience you would expect from a grand, upmarket hotel.
We can’t wait for you to discover just how special our home is, and accordingly, we invite you to sit back, relax and read on …
Oversized Private Pool & Spa With Shady Lanai
If your idea of heaven is laid back outdoor living, soaking up the glorious Florida sunshine and enjoying the delights of your own private pool and spa, then Bella Vista will tick all of these boxes and afford you the vacation experience of a lifetime.
The villa already had the largest deck offered by the property developer and then it was extended further to create a superb outdoor environment for you to relish and enjoy throughout your stay.
Our gloriously comfortable, deep padded loungers and chairs are ideal for those lazy days when topping up your tan is a priority, and for al fresco meals in the balmy Florida heat, we have provided a complimentary large and powerful gas grill. No need to rent one with us!
The beautiful sun drenched, tiled pool (28ft by 14ft) is maintained to the highest standards by a specialist pool company and features a coloured rotating underwater light wheel, adjustable to suit your preference, in order to create a soothing ambiance or party atmosphere as the sun sets on yet another fun filled Florida day.
Adjacent to the pool is our magnificent 7ft spa bath ~ the ideal way to sooth those tired feet and aching muscles after a busy day in search of that elusive “Mouse” !
For those that prefer a little shade or just a momentary respite from the wonderful tropical sunshine, our lanai (or outdoor lounge area) with typical Floridian ceiling fan will provide a cooling haven of calm and tranquillity, whilst still allowing you to watch and join in the fun with the rest of the family in and around the glistening pool. In addition, our fantastic bathroom and poolside shower provides a great changing area and affords you all the facilities you could ever need right there on the deck.
And, as if all that wasn’t enough, we proudly boast one of the most spectacular and stunning natural wildlife and conservation habitat views in the whole of the Disney area. A truly awe inspiring backdrop of ever changing seasons and tropical animal discovery.
Fabulous Games Room
Vacations are all about having fun and maybe doing things that ordinarily you don’t get the chance to do in everyday life. So imagine the excitement of discovering your very own bespoke games room right there in your vacation home.
Then add to that excitement by making the centrepiece of that room a full size genuine Olhausen professional pool table ~ one of the very best tables available anywhere in the world. Still not enough ? Ok, how about the brand new high quality 7 ft air hockey?
We also have a great Foosball table and electronic darts!
Now let’s throw in a table, some chairs and a luxury carpet to make this a great place to hang out and chill whenever the urge for a little friendly rivalry rears its head! Kids of all ages love this room, and parents love the fact that they can enjoy some well earned peace and quiet. knowing that their youngsters whilst being entertained, are all completely safe and sound.
1st Lounge Room
Our 1st lounge room downstairs is a particular favourite with our guests, who always comment on the light airy feel and the grand scale of everything. It really does have that “Wow” factor and that old adage about everything in America being “bigger” is certainly the case here! Whether it’s the magnificent open plan staircase which sweeps away to the side of you, the sumptuous overstuffed furniture or the simply massive 50 in high definition flat screen TV and DVD player, everything is on a suitably upscale and luxurious level that is bound to impress.
*** 2 iHOME DOCKING STATIONS AND SPEAKERS FOR iPOD, iPHONE AND iPAD ***
Master Bedroom Suite 1
We believe that all our guests will appreciate the tasteful décor and quality furnishing and fittings provided to ensure your relaxation and comfort. Secluded from the rest of the house this master suite affords the best in both privacy and stunning conservation views directly from the bedroom window.

The master bathroom features a stunning walk-in shower cubicle, (which meets all current disabled codes), a separate tub and two wash basins with vanity. In addition a separate WC and extensive closet which features a complimentary safe is located in the private corridor which leads from the bedroom to the bathroom.
Dining & Kitchen
Like the rest of the interior of Bella Vista, our dining room is tastefully furnished and accommodates a huge 8 seater dining table and chairs. Located adjacent to the kitchen it has the added advantage of enjoying our spectacular countryside views. A casual breakfast bar separates the dining room from the kitchen, and there are two bar stools for those who prefer informal dining or just a coffee and maybe a fresh baked muffin “on the run”.
The breakfast bar is a great way of resolving that issue of maybe feeling a little isolated in the kitchen if you are the designated cook, since it is both easy and comfortable for your family and friends to join you on the bar stools, at a safe distance, whilst you are creating culinary magic! As you would expect in a home of such premier quality, all those top of the range appliances are just waiting to make your food prep and gourmet skills a complete breeze.

• A utility room complete with a heavy-duty washing machine, tumble drier, iron & ironing board.
Safety & Security
At Bella Vista we take your safety and security extremely seriously. It is easy to let your guard slip when on vacation, but because we know you want to relax, we’ve taken care of the major security aspects for you and your family. To that end, the house has an emergency lighting system in the event of power failure, fire extinguishers on both floors and all doors leading to the pool and deck are alarmed in order to give parents peace of mind by stopping youngsters and toddlers from entering the pool area unnoticed.
2nd Lounge Room
Without a shadow of a doubt, you will simply adore this wonderful upper lounge area. Built to a truly visionary design, we invite you to chill out and relax as you sink into the super plush furnishings and look out from on high, over the stunning conservation and natural wetlands beyond.
But wait… it gets so much better! Our incredible observation balcony means that you can enjoy the soft gentle breeze, take advantage of the weatherproof furniture and simply marvel at the views, which range from the majesty of nature’s own conservation, to spectacular sunrises right through to nightly jaw dropping Disney fireworks!
However, when you eventually pull yourself away and do go back inside, you will discover the added bonus of a high speed 24/7 internet-ready PC, which will allow you to surf the web and send emails to your friends and family around the world, completely free of charge. Plus, with our high speed wi-fi router, you can bring your own laptop and enjoy the freedom to surf wherever you like around the house!

Some Guests Comments
"You picked well with West Haven – we have been going to Florida for probably 20 years (30 if I include my time as a teenager with my parents) and have stayed all over in Orlando, but West Haven is in our opinion the best location. Cheers Peter"
"One week has past by since our visit at the Abbey, and we are quite nostalgic because it was GREAT!!!
You guys have a beautiful house, and we all appreciated the pool, the view and the close to everything we needed...
As well, if any Canadian or Quebec residents want reassurance, please forward our name and e-mail address as a reference,
It will be my pleasure to share my experience with them.
On behalf of our party a BIG thanks
Hope to rent from you again...sometime soon. Best regards Russell"
