Bishop's Court: 5 BR Pool and Spa Home with Beautiful Conservation Views
This gorgeous home, known as Bishop's Court, is located in The Abbey at West Haven, one of the Orlando-area's most desired exclusive gated communities, just 7 miles from Walt Disney World, and right next to ChampionsGate - with two Greg Norman-designed golf courses, and home to the David Leadbetter Academy world headquarters.
The home overlooks a nature conversation area, with a large wetland offering wonderful views of the bird life from the pool and patio area, as well as the upstairs deck.
Bishop's Court sleeps 12 with 5 bedrooms, two with private bathrooms, a loft lounge with TV, and a sofa bed that sleeps two, and a balcony/deck providing the perfect breakfast area with glorious views over the conservation area.
The two master bedroom suites (one upstairs and one downstiars) each offer a king-size bed. Both master bathrooms have large corner, garden-style tubs and spacious walk-in showers.
The downstairs master bedroom has access to the lanai and pool via its patio doors. There is also a double bedroom with a queen size bed and two more bedrooms each with a set of twins.
All rooms are light and airy, but the living room/lounge is exceptional with its cathedral ceiling and access to the lanai and pool area through patio doors. It contains an entertainment unit with TV, DVD/CD player and films. The dining area abuts the kitchen with a breakfast bar and two bar stools. The dining table seats 8 comfortably and also has access to the lanai through a set of patio doors. All patio doors into the pool area have child alarms. The kitchen has all amenities including a teapot.
The utility area has a large washer and dryer with a door to the air-conditioned double garage.
Outside a large covered pool with extended decking has space for loungers all round, so the sun worshipper can maximize their tan! There is also a Jacuzzi and a cabana bath and shower. The large patio table creates an outdoor dining area with chairs and loungers for 12.

Lynne A. from Tiegnmouth Devon, recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Property adequate for a large family but now needs a little TLC. Carpets are dirty and worn. The sheets and under sheet in the master bedroom were for a double bed not the king size they were on. The outside table is old and worn and the kitchen needs more AIDS. The TV in master room didn't work but because we were only there for a week to visit the parks were not In enough to notice a major difference. Area is perfect for Disney parks but apparently you need to pay extra to have the spa pool hotter than the pool which I don't agree with, we have stayed at Champions Gate several times before over last 10 years through Florida Spirit but from when I first booked things this time we're not as friendly. Don't let this put you off as sometimes an individual can spoil the overall service and experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Spirit Vacation Homes Thanks for leaving this review with us. The house is very popular and we have had several hundreds of families come through this home. We offer free pool heat during November through April. During the summer months it is extra to pay for the pool heating, the heated pool is not very necessary seeing as it is very hot out. Please come back and stay with us, we can help you find the perfect home and we can offer you and your family a returned guest discount.
A guest from Grovetown, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 I have rented from this company 3 years in a row and have hardly had any problems in the past. This year, I was in total disbelief. The bed linens WERE NOT clean. Even the living room furniture seemed worn. None of the television remotes worked in any room. That's just to name a few. I'm not sure if paying over $1200 wasn't enough for a decent stay. However, I won't be going that route next year. I will definitely go with another company who at least clean their properties.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Spirit Vacation Homes Keisha, we are so sorry you feel the house was not in good order. That house was properly cleaned before your arrival and checked by our staff! We uphold our high standard of cleans, and have had several families stay in this house and love it. Please email us directly and we would love to off you a large discount off of your next stay with us!
Khristyna P. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 Our vacation at the Bishop Court was awesome. We had a great time. The kids really enjoyed themselves. Quiet location and ready made home. I would definitely recommend Florida Vacation Spirit to any deciding to stay over three days in Orlando. Thanks again
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Spirit Vacation Homes We are so glad you enjoyed the home. This home is quite lovely. Please come back and see us again and we would love to offer you a returned guest discount!
Eli E. from Ottawa, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2016 This was a wonderful house for our extended family (3 households) to come together and enjoy Florida. Plenty of space in the house, great for meals outside @ poolside, lounging around the pool, going for walks in the evening. There is a nice big field behind the houses on Windor Pl, and a great kids park on Alfani St. We chose to buy groceries and eat most of our meals at home - Anything you need is only a couple minutes drive away (Publix one direction, Walmart & Target the other direction). The barbecue rental (@ )was super convenient, and we used it everyday.The property was clean, and well laid out (although it could use an upgrade to the carpets and kitchen - it was still fine), and there was ongoing construction noise across the conservation pond which was a bit disappointing - the price was good and overall the house was great! With the Canadian dollar so low, management even lowered the cost of our stay to keep our business.Management was extremely helpful anytime I called them before arrival and the pool was well maintained during our stay.We didn't attend Disney, however we did a good deal of shopping at the outlets in and around Orlando, and took a daytrip to the beach in Clearwater (I would avoid driving during peak rush hour times!). If you have young kids or a large family, this house is perfect. If you are looking for a quiet, safe and convenient location - this neighbourhood is perfect.We will likely return another time in the future, and I would recommend this company and house to anyone travelling to the Orlando area.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Spirit Vacation Homes Thanks for staying with us and recommending us. We hope to see you again soon!
Diana H. from West Des Moines, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 Nice home - however it was advertised as 5.5 baths but only had 4.5 baths unless one was locked. Furniture, carpet, linolium was worn and needs upgraded. Pool was awesome and location was great. Would use again but probably a different residence.
A guest from Silver Spring, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 This house was so nice, very clean and the pool was great! My family loved this house and it was only about 20 minutes from Universal Studios. The view out the back of the house to the pool and conservation area was wonderful...only drawback wish more privacy between houses...too close to neighbors pool...when they were outside came right over into our pool area...luckily they were not out there often. Otherwise, it was a fantastic house and would definitely stay again.
Scott P. from Louisville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 Overall we were pleased with everything.We were told we could arrive at 4:00p.m. When we arrived at that time, the cleaning crew was still there. They had gotten a late start they said. Some of us waited outside in our vehicles while they finished cleaning the house, emptying trash,vacuuming,cleaning bathroom floors.Some of us began moving stuff in because it was too hot to wait outside.The cleaning truck was blocking the entrance to the garage so we couldn't unload or pull in the garage.The ceiling light in the living room was burned out, and the man said he would come and replace it, but never did.The swimming pool pump stopped and had tons of floating scum on the top. We had to call the maint. people and they came and got the pump running and the scum off the top.The drying quit working the day before we were to leave and much of our laundry didn't get done before our drive home to Ohio. No one came out the day we called or before we left the next morning. Lastly, we found red plastic cups behind night stands and cherreos in the carpet that were not ours. It was a nice stay, overall a nice home and a good time.
Robert T. from Orleans, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in April, 2012 We had a few issues with the house in the first couple of days but these were promptly resolved by Brian who was extremely professional & courteous. We enjoyed staying at Bishop's Court very much for our 2 week vacation.
Gustavo V. from Brasilia, DF recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in January, 2012 We are from Brazil and the experience of renting a home was essential for the well being of my family during our Disney visit. We are sure that there is not better option when traveling with kids. In our case, 2 kids (5 & 7 years of age). We rented the house with other two families and the size of the house was essential for our well being. We are sure that if we stayed at a hotel or resort we would not have the same comfort and privacy. Also, we had cooked our own food, avoiding eating unhealthy foods everyday at restaurants etc. The only problem was that we were explained that the house had five bedrooms (within two master suites with private bathrooms) when there was only two master suites with private bathrooms. This situation did not impair our stay. The house is really really nice!
