West Haven is a collection of a smaller gated sub-divisions, with upwards of 60 rental and residential properties within each. The sub-divisions at West Haven are: The Abbey, The Green, The Hamlet, The Manor, Sanctuary, The Shire and more recently, The Dales. Each sub-division is set off from tree-lined boulevards, with each offering luxury villas with private pools.
West Haven has a clubhouse with gymnasium, communal pool, tennis courts and volleyball pitch, however, access to these facilities is dependent on which sub-division you will be staying in. For this reason, it is always best to first check with the villa owner to confirm access to these communal facilities..

This is the mid-section of highway US27 and encompasses a number of rental communities from the intersection with highway US192 then south towards Interstate 4. With this area fast becoming where the majority of visitors to the Orlando area will stay, improvements to the roads have made them wider to cater for the additional traffic. Access to the attractions, shops and restaurants is via Interstate 4 or US192. Likewise, a visit to Tampa or the Gulf coast beaches is equally as straightforward via Interstate 4.
Staying in this area means a car is essential when visiting the theme parks, area attractions and the local shops.
