A quality villa offering excellent value, high standards, beautifully equipped



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Villa at Westridge (Manors South), Davenport, Florida Orlando/Kissimmee, USA - Location, Location, Location.

Welcome Home. 'Look no further our 4 bedroom 3 bathroom private pool villa is a 'little gem'. We are proud of our home and have furnished the property to a high standard and are personally motivated to ensure we provide you with a holiday home to be proud of. We are new owners and have recently refurbished the whole property interior with new carpet, new tiles, blinds and ceiling fans to compliment the existing air conditioning already installed.

Poolside we have totally renewed the sun lounges and seat covers and provided umbrella shading for additional comfort. A high capacity pool heater has been installed to heat the pool in the cooler months, normally October to April. Our pool is screened and cleaned weekly with filters and chemical balance being checked and adjusted accordingly and is typically kidney-shaped almost 30' long. However for the intrepid fitness fan if you should wish to indulge in more strenuous exercise swimming, the Manors has its own clubhouse and full sized swimming pool which is free to use by residents and guests staying at the property. The clubhouse also contains a fully equipped fitness centre free to use. Being south facing the pool area at the villa is exposed to the sun all day ensuring the potential for a 'perfect suntan'. For those al fresco moments or for days and evenings you decide to spend relaxing by the pool we have provided a gas barbecue free to use.

For your added convenience we offer 'free Wi-Fi at the house, so bring your laptop or tablet. In each of our lounges we have installed 48" flat screen LED smart TV's with a DVD player in the poolside lounge. Each of the bedrooms is also equipped with modern flat screen televisions. Although we are feel sure you will spend much of your time by the pool or visiting the many theme parks and attractions, to compliment your "chill out" time at the villa we have Direct TV installed offering a choice of more than 200+ channels including sport and some movie channels. To cater for sport lovers, our T.V package includes coverage of the NFL, Premier League, NHL and NBA. Included in the rental cost is the facility to make free local, long distance and international telephone calls to more than 30 countries including the UK, Europe and Canada using a VOIP telephone system.

Our house is a corner plot and offers good space either side adding to the privacy and tranquility although the estate offers a very relaxed location regardless.

Our property is spacious and has two communal lounge areas, a formal dining area as well as a separate area between the kitchen and poolside lounge for casual dining. We have three bathrooms two of which are en-suite attached to the two queen bedded rooms and the third for use by the two twin bedded rooms and guests poolside.

For guests with a baby or a very young child there is a cot, high chair and child buggy at the villa although we do recommend you bring your own to ensure familiarity.

For long stay guests the villa contains everything you need.

About the Owner

I would like to welcome you to my home in Florida.

Up to 10 years ago I spent 30 years as a travel agent and had always wanted to have a property of my own in a tropical climate so, at last in 2014 purchased a family home near Disney. Those 30 years were spent trying to accomodate customers in locations and property where I new they would be both happy and at a destination appropriate to their leisure needs.

I have a beautiful home in England filled with quality and am carrying that philosophy forward in furnishing the home in Davenport.

It is important to me that you feel comfortable in the house and enjoy nice surroundings. When your vacation ends I will only be happy knowing you look forward to returning to my home in the knowledge you feel you had great value for money.

Beautiful Property & very hospitable owner!

  • 5 of 5

We booked last minute and Gary was extremely accommodating! We had a 6 month old with us and Gary was giving us tips from the very first email! Gary is extremely hospitable and helpful in every way.

The villa is beautiful and set in a great community and located centrally to all of the main attractions. The villa has everything it needs and is very spacious.

The pool was great and was in the sun all day.

We have stayed in a number of villa's in Florida over the years and would recommend Gary's villa to all.

We will be sure to contact him next time we go!

Excellent Villa - With Superb Leisure Facilities

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this villa is excellent.

My family and I have stayed in about half a dozen different villas local to this one, but none can compare. This time it was only myself and my adult son staying over the Xmas period, and it was our first time at this villa.

Gary and his management team take care of every detail.

Many villas boast about having TVs in every room, but until now I have not stayed in a villa with such modern TVs including very comprehensive viewing options like this one has. I know we don't all go on holiday to Florida to sit in front of the box, but it's good to know there is a very extensive TV package for the times you do.

The pool is well situated - even for the low winter sun with nothing blocking it out - and is lovely and warm. Plenty of lounger/seat/table options.

Didn't use the hockey table but the pool table was the scene of my son getting many a good thrashing!

Beds are very comfortable as are the sofas in the lounges.

Laundry facilities good and dishwasher/crocks/utensils all clean upon arrival and sufficient for a large party.

Stay here and you won't be disappointed...but don't stay when I want to book because this is my first choice villa now!

Very Clean and well laid out, great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated in a gated community so you feel very secure.

The property is well laid out with every thing that you need.

The games room is great for us big kids as well with the pool table and air hocky

the villa has a good size pool and is accessible from the bedroom and the lounge also from the hallway that has a separate bathroom ( this is very handy after using the pool).

The location is very good as it is within very easy drive of all attractions and shopping outlets.

Also as just off the main road it is very easy to Drive to eather beach and also kennedy space centre or Bush gardens.

To get to the villa is just 3 roads from orlando international airport ( 30 minutes drive apron) so is very easy to find even at night. (please have some quarters at hand for the 3 or 4 toll booths that you go through around 6 to 8 dollars) other roots are free but are a lot longer and harder to follow)

I recommend staying in this villa it is just what you want if their are 2 of you or a family.

Gary is a great person to deal with and always available to help or answer any questions that you might have.

We had a wonderful relaxing time in the villa and also got in some good shopping at the outlet centres.

Clean, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this villa in October 2015.

The villa is clean, comfortable and spacious. The pool area is great as it gets the sun all day and is not overlooked. The villa is in on a gated community and so is secure and it's location is handy for all the Disney etc attractions. We drove down to Miami which took about 4 hours stayed overnight and then went on to Key Largo and the Everglades.

Gary the owner rang during our holiday to check that everything was ok, which it was.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this villa as a base to explore the sites.

From the Owner

I have visited Florida many times throughout my life and love the climate the lifestyle and the shopping. I have always enjoyed the "Florida experience". I have also been to Disney and the many fun filled theme parks too which is obviously an immense attraction to families and it seems that the Disney complex has become a place of pilgrimage for anybody with children regardless of nationality. Florida is a holiday destination blessed with something for everybody. Golfers, shoppers, sun worshippers, fishermen, boating enthusiasts and families can always have a great time in Florida.
