About the Owner

Hi, we are Iain and Amanda Burrup. We live in the beautiful Cotswolds area of the UK, and have owned this dream Florida vacation home for several years now. We visit at least 3 times a year, to get our sunshine fix and for Iain to play a little golf. We have 4 grand-daughters, who can't wait visit the Disney parks and the other great child-friendly attractions of the area! Regular visiting also gives us an opportunity to ensure that our home is being maintained and cared for properly by our management company. Each time we go, we always find ourselves upgrading things, and shopping for little extras that we feel will enhance our guests' experience. If you decide to choose our villa for your Florida vacation, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Best wishes, Iain and Amanda.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The villa was airy and spacious and more than enough room for all who were staying. We have never stayed in that particular area before and found it very nice and handy to all the attractions. The Super Wal-Mart down the road was extremely handy should you need provisions and I can honestly say that we did not want to return home. The biggest hit for the kids was the pool area which was very private and well furnished for relaxing. The pool was excellent and was in the sun most of the day.'

'Our family had a holiday of a life time and your villa played a large part in this enjoyment.'

'Villa is huge and tastefully furnished. It most certainly catered for our family needs and to say we were delighted would be an understatement. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending your properties to our circle of friends.'

'The house was beautiful and the kids were like fish in the pool everyday. The ride to everything was a breeze. Extremely convenient!'

Clean and spacious house close to resorts

  • 5 of 5

Located within a quiet gated community the house has been a great base for our trip to the Orlando theme parks. It has taken us about 35 mins to get to the Universal attractions and around 20 to the Disney ones. The house was lovely and clean although we had to be super clean as micro ants descended on any food left out for more than a couple of minutes.

My kids loved the pool and we would leave the theme parks early enough for them to swim each evening. We had to pay for pool heating due to the time of year but it was lovely and warm (but not the hot tub).

We loved the pool table and played most evenings. Wifi seemed to work pretty well.

Bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property with great amenities and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed there in September '16 and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of property. We searched the internet and selected this one mainly from the reviews, it's location, the way it is decorated, the pool table and the fact it was in a gated community.

All rooms were very nicely decorated and all very spacious with large, comfy beds. All bedrooms had TVs. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we could have needed. The swimming pool area was large with plenty of seating and the swimming pool itself was well kept and the kids loved it. The pool table was brilliant and well used when the kids went to bed. The owner was really helpful with whatever we needed. We had two babies in our group and asked for two cots. These were provided for us. Any questions were promptly answered for us.

It's location was great. About 25mins to Disney and a few minutes drive to the us192 which had loads of eating spots. A large Walmart was also a few minutes drive away.

We can not recommend this property enough and will definitely look to stay here again when we return to Florida.

Fabulous holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday. The villa was a home away from home, it has everything you need and more. Would recommend. The pool area is not overlooked which really appealed to us. We had a small issue while we were there, but an email to the management company and everything was sorted.

Lovely property,great pool area..Getting into the Gated estate a nightmare..

  • 4 of 5

No issues at all with the property,lovely stylish villa,enormous master bedroom all open plan ,so no door separating bedroom from bathroom.Lovely downstairs area and pool with fantastic Jacuzzi feature.

Weston hills estate,very clean and quiet BUT the main issue was getting into the Gated community,you had to press a button and speak on the intercom to get permission to enter the estate through the barrier and gates.Every day this was an issue,with incompetent and sometimes rude people on the other end of the intercom.On more than one occasion we were waitng

Owner's Response: Dear David Thank you for your kind comments about our villa and pool area. As you say, the Weston Hills estate is very clean and quiet, and one of the things that attracted us to it was the fact that it is a very secure, gated community I’m sure all our guests are very reassured by the fact that unlike some villa communities where people can come and go unchecked, the level of security at the Weston Hills gates is very high. I’m obviously very sorry that you felt the delay in accessing the community was unacceptable, this is the first time I have heard from any of guests about this, but thank you for your feedback, and I will forward your comments on to the Weston HIlls Homeowners Association. Best wishes, Amanda

Fantastic Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

Sandpipers was everything that we had hoped for and more. Amanda and Ian could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We have been to Florida several times before and stayed in some lovely villas but this one was by far superior. We will certainly be returning on our next visit and would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone.

The gated community is superb and very friendly. The area is located conveniently close to local stores and restaurants and is perfectly close to Disney World and other attractions. Thankyou!

A lovely villa in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10-day stay in the warm Florida sunshine at this lovely villa. It was a pleasure to stay there even when the occasional extremely heavy Florida rain stopped us using the pool - it was still possible to sit outside and relax or have meals under the shelter by the pool.

The villa and amenities are all exactly as decribed and are in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. Some of the extras that made it especially good were the availability of pool towels, basic toiletries, and the vast numbers of TV channels including ones not usually available (e.g. live UK football and live tennis). The pool table was also well used.

The Publix supermarket is only a couple of minutes drive away and there are plenty of good restaurants within about a 15 minute drive. One we particularly liked was Bonefish Grill (which serves more than just fish).

The only tiny issue we had was setting the alarm the first time we left the house. It's easy to do but, without detailed instructions to reassure us we were doing it correctly and weren't going to set off the alarm, it was a little nerve-wracking having to shut the front door, set the alarm, then open the front door to get out before closing it again.

If we ever stay in the area again I would have no hesitation in considering this villa again and would recommend it to anybody.

Owner's Response: Dear Ian, I'm so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sandpipers, you would be most welcome back any time. And thank you for the useful feedback regarding setting the alarm when leaving the house - I will make sure future guests are provided with this information. Kind regards, Amanda

Location

From the Owner

Firstly we wanted a home within a secure gated community. Weston Hills has electric gates which are only opened by using a gate card which we sent to each guest before their holiday. Weston Hills also has a very active Homeowners Association which ensures the community is beautifully maintained. Some of the communities in the Disney area do not have Homeowners Associations, and unfortunately it shows. Weston Hills is also very quiet, making it a superb place to return to after the hustle and bustle of the theme parks or shopping malls. The houses are mainly owned by residents, rather than being solely vacation homes. It's location is ideal, being just a 15 minute easy drive to the Disney Parks, and within minutes of good shopping, restaurants.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Orlando International (MCO) at 32 Miles Nearest Golf : Polo Park Golf Club at 4.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : HW27 at 0.25 Miles Nearest Beach : Cocoa Beach at 79.5 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

It is possible to reach both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts in just over an hour, so you can easily visit the Kennedy Space Centre or the beautiful gulf beaches at Clearwater if you want a change from the local attractions. There is also a beach with swimming and fishing at Lake Louisa State Park, just 7 miles north from the villa.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Orlando International (MCO) - approx 45 minutes drive. Sanford (SFB) Airport is approx 1 hours drive, Tampa Airport is approx 1.15 hours drive. Car hire is essential and inexpensive, please contact us if you would like details.

Distances:

Weston Hills is located on HW27, just 3 miles north of its junction with the 192. It is an easy 5 minutes drive to several large supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies, banks, garages. The Disney theme parks are approx 15 minutes drive, Universal Studios is approx. 25 mins. We can provide you with a short cut to Disney which cuts out most of the traffic jams along HW192, which is the route most people use. There are several excellent large shopping plazas within a quick and easy drive.

Further Details:

"Sandpipers" is set in one of the best positions at Weston Hills, a small, exclusive, gated community located on HW27 just 3 miles north of its junction with HW192. As you drive through the electric security gates you will notice how beautifully kept everything is, with a tree-lined avenue & well maintained flower borders. Weston Hills is very quiet with a high proportion of residential, rather than solely vacation homes, and has a very active Home Owners Association which ensures that the community is kept up to the highest standards. The extensive leisure facilities at Weston Hills are freely available to our guests, and include: children's play area, special children's interactive splash pool, two large community swimming pools, tennis courts and a basket ball court. These facilities are just a short walk from "Sandpipers". Nearby Supermarkets: Wal-Mart and Publix.

Facilities

From the Owner

One of the first things you will notice is the huge amount of space inside - and outside - our villa. It is one of the largest 5 bedroomed homes that you will find (3000sq ft of air-conditioned living space). The pool deck is also extra-large, so there is more than enough room for everyone in your party to sit in the sun or the shade, as you wish. And don't forget the far-reaching views at the back over miles of conservation wetlands. You may well see hot air balloons drifting over in the early morning, which is an amazing sight! A south and west aspect means that you can enjoy the sun all day.

The pool can be illuminated at night, and special garden lighting adds to the ambience and pleasure of being outside in the warm Floridian evenings. Pool and spa heating are available to enhance your enjoyment. A George Foreman electric BBQ grill is provided, so you can easily have an alfresco meal at home should you decide not to eat out. Utility Room: Washing machine, dryer, ironing board, iron. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Thick high quality towels and high thread count bedlinen are included, plus pool towels.
