The map below shows the location of our Villa relative to the major attractions of the Orlando area, and to Orlando International Airport which is approximately a 35-minute drive away.
Our villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac within a secure gated community called “The Shire at Westhaven,” in Davenport, Florida.
Although it is located only a short drive from the main attractions of Orlando, it provides an escape from the “hustle and bustle” of the tourist areas and will give you the peace-and-quiet that will help you to relax during your vacation.
Apart from the major theme parks, there are lots of other things to do in the area, such as eating out, shopping at “premium outlet malls” and perhaps playing golf on one of the 170 or so courses that Orlando has to offer.
Local Places to Eat
Our Villa is, of course, fully equipped to allow you to self-cater during your entire stay if you wish, but the nearby “ChampionsGate” area has lots of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes, including: McDonalds, Subway, Fish and Chips, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Miller’s Ale House, China One, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Chili’s Bar and Grill.
There is also a “Publix” supermarket close by for groceries, local fuel stations, and banks with ATM facilities.
Shopping in Orlando
For those of you who love a bargain, a little “retail therapy” is never far from reach in Orlando! The areas outlet centers include Orlando Premium Outlets, The Florida Mall, The Mall at Millenia and also the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, which all feature a wide selection from the world’s top designers at incredible savings.
