Cead Mile Failte- a hundred thousand welcomes. The Hamlet at West Haven says Quality, from the minute you leave Ronald Reagan Parkway and enter the first of two tree-lined avenues.Whether you have spent the day at one of the many theme parks or ventured further to Kennedy Space Center or the coast, our home will fulfill all your holiday needs. Exquisitely furnished in light colonial style, with all the equipment you need for chilling out, snacking or gourmet cooking.
The sociable layout links the kitchen, formal dining area and two lounges with easy access to the pool area. The 1st floor balcony off the upstairs Master suite is perfect for sundowners and views over The Orlando area. Perfect for a large family get-together or two families sharing. The perfect place to relax after a busy day at the theme parks. You appreciate the light, spacious feel of the house as soon as you enter the double-height entrance hall, with the wide staircase inviting you to explore the upstairs balcony and four bedrooms beyond. The downstairs double suite is ideal for those who find stairs a challenge. The wonderful year-round weather probably means you'll travel light but, if not, the ample closets will accommodate all your party gear(as well as those bargain purchases from the many easily-accessible malls and designer outlet stores). For those nights when you want to venture out Chillis (near Champions Gate) is one of our favourites, as is Delmonicos on International Drive.Try the 24oz steak(Yes, 24oz.!) for around $20.00.
For those evenings when kicking back by the pool or collapsing in front of the T.V. fits the bill, take-out pizzas at Papa Johns (ordered online if you wish), is located opposite Reunion golf resort, a five minute drive away..

Climate- warm,hot or very hot. What to do? Well, where to start ;there's so much to say? Theme parks abound-Disney,Universal Studios,Sea World and, since October 2011, the largest Legoland in the world,at Winterhaven. All within 10 miles of the property. Plus Kennedy Space Center, Gatorland and numerous other water parks. Boggy Creek(around 40 minutes drive) offers one of the best airboat ride locations. Go for the longer(45minute) ride if your budget allows;the boats are smaller, can access more areas and provide better views/photo opportunities for the alligators and birdlife. They go faster too! But there is more to Central Florida than organised parks and tours, so don't miss out on the wildlife-herons, hawks, egrets, dragonflies and butterflies, to name a few. A day at the Gulf coast or Atlantic coast is doable, only around an hour's drive.
Or hire a Harley!
Champions Gate Resort is "on the doorstep" if you fancy a round of golf on one of two PGA courses designed by Greg Norman, a links course (international) and a parkland course(national). Go to www.championsgategolf.com for more details. Good restaurant too. And, of course, the shopping malls-too many to list. In the summer you will often see hot air balloons taking off from field close to the eastern side of I-4 across from Champions Gate. Go to Celebration(15 minutes towards Orlando on I-4) and stroll around a community designed on a nostalgia theme, check out the Thai and Italian restaurants or take in a movie at the '50s style cinema. And, if you like seeing how the other half (or maybe 1%) live, wander down the road with $5-10million dollar homes.
