|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
The house is on a gated estate called the manors at Westridge which is a great location for getting to all the theme parks and shops etc. For those of you who know the area it is on hwy27 next to highlands reserve, and opposite Hampton lakes. Westridge is midway between interstate 4 and the us192
The manors at Westridge community is part residential and part rental and the homeowners association ensure the estate is kept very clean and tidy.
The journey from Orlando international airport takes around 40 minutes and Sanford airport approximately one hour & fifteen minutes.
If you haven't visited Florida before and don't know where to start then we are happy to help guide you with regards to flights, car hire, attraction tickets, visa waiver procedures etc
Our house is the perfect base for visiting Walt Disney world, Universal Studios & Seaworld, plus all the fantastic shopping malls. You can easily reach Kennedy space center & the east coast beaches plus some of the gulf of Mexico resorts in approx. 90 minutes by car. If you fancy visiting Miami during your stay then expect the journey south to take around 4 hours.
There are many shops, including large Publix and Walmart supermarkets, restaurants, banks, post office, petrol stations etc, all within a few minutes by car.
We feel that our home is the ideal place to relax after a long and hectic day at the theme parks, or shops. Sit by the pool with an ice cold drink and soak up some of that gorgeous Florida sunshine.
For the golfers among you, there are several championship courses just minutes away by car. Please get in touch for more information on this if needed.
The open plan kitchen has just about everything you could possibly need during your stay. For those of you who really don't want the hassle of cooking whilst on holiday then there are literally 100's of reasonably priced restaurants on the us192 which is just minutes away. You will also find places to eat on the us27, including Appleby's, chilli's, Perkins, bob Evans, cracker barrel, plus many others.
The swimming pool has been painted in electric blue and looks stunning.
The house is looked after and managed by a local company who ensure that the pool is kept crystal clear and the lawn neat and trimmed. Food and drink welcome packs can be pre ordered for our guests although a large Publix supermarket is just a couple of miles down the road.
A small deposit is required when booking but do please inquire about availability first. Many of our guests return year after year to enjoy the peace and tranquility that the manors at Westridge can offer.
We are a family of four David, Linda, Tina & Katie.
We have been going to our beautiful house in Florida for the past 11 years as we love all of the parks and also the wonderful sunshine and great food and bargains at the outlets.
David Stevens purchased this villa in 2002
Our house provides the perfect location for a great vacation, situated on H27 just 10 minutes from Disney yet in a quite and secluded community away from all the hustle and bustle.
Our gated community is close to many restaurants and supermarkets and there are also over 20 golf courses within a 15 minute drive.
The property was not as clean as I would have hoped for~we found trash and cigarette butts under the furniture in the house~and trash around the pool as well~we were traveling with a crawling infant~I did the cleaning myself~I mentioned this to the property manager and although he was nice he simply said "I am sorry about that"
"I love it!" were the first words out of my wife's mouth as we explored your Villa. It is very clean and all your improvements and upgrades are appreciated (new beds & bedding, a new sofa and love seat, a new microwave, and new tile floors in all the bedrooms). The private pool is a big plus. Thank you for the extra effort in making this a special place. We plan to come back on a regular basis.
Disappointed to learn the bed in master is queen and other bedroom double (family stated old & uncomfortable) - not as stated in description. Did e-mail owner & he said he would correct it, 4 months later still incorrect. The pictures showing the home have to be from the time of purchase. Hardly anything is updated. The kitchen is fairly equipped but was dirty. We were there 2.5 months & I cleaned quite a bit. Kitchen cabinets/blinds/curtains. Living room blinds/curtains/couch pillows. The sofa bed is also broken. Bedrooms blinds/curtains/stripped beds & washed ALL bedding- disgusting under beds & behind dressers. Washed all linens in closet. One hand towel and one wash cloth (had to go buy). The toilets had the old plastic seats and one was ripped. Carpets in bedrooms were filthy - spot cleaned the best I could & even had to go buy all our own cleaning supplies. Thoroughly cleaned out sweeper & had to go buy bags in order to sweep. The home is in a nice location & to stay a week, you could deal with it. The positive side for us, it was rented for next year underneath us and we found another home 100% nicer and in beautiful condition for a small difference. The owner of this property did come back saying we could rent from him but the fee was almost double over what we paid this past year. We never even were thanked for the work and cleaning we did. I'm glad to put this home behind us. To top it off, I finally had to send an e-mail concerning our security deposit refund and ask how soon we would get it back. He could not send me check (didn't have) so I had to send him money request through PayPal. We also had pool heat issues. Just wanted for five days while our grandchildren were visiting - we got the heat the day before they left which was 4 days after request. We did get a two day refund the day before we left. Our trip as snowbirds for 2.5 months in Sunny Florida was wonderful but our stay in this home was a let down. No doubt I could say more and there's a good chance my husband will add his own comments.
