About Alison Ward

We are in our mid 40's and have owned our property for 10 years. We love Florida, the parks, the attractions and the wildlife.

We are both working - husband Paul is a painter & decorator and I work for a Coffee company.

With 3 grown boys, 2 dogs and 3 cheeky Miniature Shetlands.

Alison Ward purchased this house in 2002

Why Alison Ward chose Westridge

So why this house? ......we were looking for a property for a future investment.

We looked at hundreds of properties but this one was different. Inside was spacious with a home from home feeling and outside peaceful and safe.

The area was great, well established and the view behind the house was stunning - breathtaking!

Can't describe it - Still feel the same today.

We loved it!

What makes this house unique

The house is not overlooked from the back and there is a very large space between the side properties.

Peaceful after those long days at the parks but close enough to everything you need.

Stunning outlook for those evenings round the pool with a glass of wine after a long day at the parks, when the kids are in bed (intercomm system included).

You'll love it.

Would stay again 💙

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 11 nights. Alison was very easy to deal with, booking was easy. I’ve read other reviews on here and yes the villa is a little dated but it’s absolutely fine. We had paid for pool heat and it worked really well, the pool is larger than most villas I’ve stayed in. I loved the master bedroom! Bed is huge! The tv remote didn’t work that well but that’s certainly not a big issue. The washing machine wasn’t working well and we called the manager, the next day a brand new machine was installed. Lovely neighbours next door with a beautiful dog called Lucy! Lots of lovely little squirrels and rabbits outside! I wouldn’t hestitate to stay again! Thank you from the Kennedy family!

Owner's Response: Hello Karen and family Thank you for your review it’s so nice to receive honest heartfelt feedback. We will be completing more work to the house as it is an older property trying to bring it up to date and maintaining regularly, replaced the pool heater recently so great to hear that works well. Apologises for the washer not working I am glad it was replaced so quick, the management company are very good. Thanks again for your review and please feel free to contact us anytime - always happy to help. Kind Regards Alison & Paul

Comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

House was comfortable and clean, kitchen and master bathroom could use some updating. Need to have a maintenance person come in and spend alittle time fixing things. Kitchen tap leaks when you use it and bathroom tub taps drip. TV controls did not work to turn TV on, had to use controls on tv. Patio door needs some work, hard to open and shut. Washing machine sounds rough and dryer did not work, heated but drum would not turn. Called the office and new dryer arrived the next day. Would have been nice to know the dryer was broke before we started laundry. Beds clean and comfortable, we had great weather but wished we would have got pool heat as water was cold even with the thermal blanket on every night. Thanks for letting us use your home.

Owner's Response: Hi Randy Thank you for your feedback. Apologises for the inconvenience of the dryer and will try to get the management company to tend to the other things mentioned, Kitchen and bathroom are on our list to do. The property is older so I try to reflect this in the price and pictures shown. Hope everything else was ok and you enjoyed your holiday. Regards Alison & Paul (Essex -UK)

Amazing Pool

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed the pool during our stay. When we arrived however, the bathrooms had not been cleaned very well. The Tubs had hair in them and the windows located by each tub had mold growing around them. I called the management company and emailed the owner. The company returned and cleaned around the windows but I had to clean the tubs myself. The home was comfortable and there is enough space. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed to cook with during our stay. This home is located close to many places.
