At the airport we were given very clear directions to the villa so we navigated our way there without any problems.
When we arrived it was spotlessly clean and impressively presented. Lovely large kitchen and plenty of dining space. Washer & drier in utility room. Well equipped lounge area with large, wall mounted TV with lots of sports channels for the kids to watch in the evening. Lovely pool (which the kids lived in). Wonderful 4 bedrooms - the master bedroom is particularly spacious with a large en-suite area with walk-in wardrobe.
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better we found a proper pool table and an air hockey table in the garage. For a family with 3 boys it was bliss !
Great location - very close to the I4 and Disney parks - further to Universal Studios & Sea World. Good supermarket 5 minutes away (Publix).
Unfortunately we forgot / lost my youngest son's (birth) teddy bear in the villa. Contempo were fabulous - after a pleading & tearful email their clearning supervisor (Paula) returned to the villa and found him. My son was reunited with his bear last week (amid many tears) courtesy of FedEx, arranged by the wonderful Narissa in Contempo's reservations department. An even happier ending to a fabulous holiday.
Hope to be back again (very soon) !

We really enjoyed our stay. The only negative feedback is that we had wished to pool was warm when we arrived - it took almost two full days to get have it at a comfortable temperature. The kids loved the pool table. The other small issue was kitchen linen. I didn't realize we need dish towels and dish cloths.
The staff at Contempo were very pleasant and nice to deal with and very helpful. We would consider booking again through Contempo.
Thank you, Diane Cavanagh

This was the first time my family had rented a home, and it was defintely the first time we had rented anything online without any knowledge about the property. And, we of course were very reluctant. But we couldn't have been more pleased. The home was absolutely beautiful and extremely spacious. It had flat screen TVs in every roon. It was impeccably clean and well equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were all very nice and clean. We had problems getting into the gated neighborhood when we first arrived, and had to call the property management to come out and get us in, which took about an hour. After that though, everything was wonderful. With traffic, it was under 30 minutes to Disney. My kids loved being in a house instead of a hotel room, and we hope to go back soon. Read more

We had a wonderful holiday at the Westhaven community. The only minor problem was that our road, (Norfolk Drive) was so new it didn't feature on the Sat-Nav!! The benefit was it was so quiet. Excellent property, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, lots of indoor and outdoor living space. At the time we went (June) there was no need for pool heating.
The community is close to Champion's Gate for shopping, and only 15 minutes or so from Disney. Being only a mile or so from I4 it made access to all areas and the coast very easy.
My only criticism is I would have liked to have used the garage for the car, to keep it cool, but the pool table was right in the middle of the floor.
I would definitely go there again! Read more

We are so pleased you had a wonderful holiday at Westhaven. As you point out, it can take many months for newer communities to be recognised by Sat-nav or appear on maps, we do hope this didn't cause too much of an inconvenience. Many homes do now feature games rooms which are normally located in the garages as for the most part, garages are rarely used however, you do raise a good point. We can certainly ensure that next time, a home can be allocated which will allow you to park in the garage. We hope to see you again soon.
