Ashley Manor house description

Looking for somewhere different to stay for your Florida vacation? Ashley Lodge is only eight miles from Disney World and offers amenities that are tough to match.

Don’t like the idea of sharing a pool with a hundred strangers, for example? Your family can hog all the padded lounge chairs situated around our huge, screened, in-ground pool and in the adjacent lanai. While relaxing in your private, newly claimed kingdom, watch for Florida wildlife and flora—we’re located in an intimate lakefront development, and the pool area offers great views of the water and backyard garden. What you won’t see is the neighbors—and they won’t see you. Because we’re an end house with a sprawling yard, no other properties or pool areas look into ours.

We also have a carpeted games room with a professionally lit pool table, plus foosball, air hockey, and table tennis. The garage door in this room rolls up, giving the games room open access to the outdoors.

A hot tub beside the pool means the adults can soak their tired feet after a long day of walking the theme parks, and at the same time keep an eye on the kids as they expend even more of their limitless energy in the pool. When you all hit the hay for the night, don’t worry about the little ones getting into the pool area—the door is fitted with secure locks and devices out of their reach and will warn you if it is opened.

Everyone will sleep well here, thanks to pillow-top mattresses and flexible sleeping arrangements. With 5 bedrooms (including two masters!) and 3.5 baths, Ashley Lodge is perfect for multiple families traveling together, or for one big multi-generational family making shared memories in Florida. We even consider pets, so you can bring your furry family member (just make sure to check with us first).

The Pool Master Bedroom is located on the ground floor (great for Grandma and Grandpa), with direct access to the pool area. Boasting the most luxurious bathroom on the property, this suite has a walk-in shower, corner tub and double-vanity. The lucky occupants of this room will also get a king-sized bed, a flatscreen HDTV, and a separate seating area near the sliding glass doors that open to the pool.

The Lake Master Bedroom includes an en suite bathroom, queen-sized bed, and second-story views of the pool and lake. It’s a great spot to recharge with a book, and you can still take a peek at the family having fun below. This room has its own flatscreen, too.

The Garden Bedroom can be arranged into either one king bed or two twins, depending on your needs, and features a flatscreen television and plenty of storage.

The Disney Bedroom is a hit with kids, thanks to its vibrant Disney-themed décor, two twin-sized beds, and even a PlayStation 2. Don’t be surprised if they stay up a little past bedtime imagining all the fun and magic they’ll experience at the park the next day.

Lastly, the Aqua Bedroom, with its two twin beds and sea-themed décor, calls to mind Florida’s gorgeous coasts, which are an easy hour drive in each direction.

The living spaces have a lot to offer, too.

The kitchen is spacious, fully stocked and includes a dishwasher (we’re firmly against hand washing dishes while on vacation) and a breakfast bar so you can serve up your family’s fuel for the day. For more formal meals, gather at the eight-person dining table or dine “al fresco” on the lanai, with garden views and seating for ten. No one has to eat standing up here!

The family room is equally inviting. Watch your favorite family flick while lounging on one of the sumptuous sofas. There’s enough seating for at least eight guests—a rarity in most vacation homes, even those as large as ours.

We’ve had many guests come back for multiple stays at Ashley Lodge, which we think says something about the quality of our vacation retreat. Our calendar fills fast, so give us a call today and book your dates!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are a retired couple from the UK who enjoy getting away from the British winters and having a luxurious lifestyle in a warm climate. Having such a spacious and comfortable home in the sun, and our very own, private swimming pool, is still exciting for us and we love to share it with discerning guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ashley Manor:
                  We thought that we had the best of all possible worlds by buying here. We were close to all the obvious attractions of Disney, Universal, Sea World, etc. but we also realised that there is so much more to Central Florida than Theme Parks. We enjoy the lakes and National Parks as well as the theatres and cinemas of the local area. No holiday would be complete without a vast range of high quality restaurants to sample and enjoy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the privacy of our location and the size of our plot. So few properties have large side gardens and private pool areas. We love the airiness of the villa and the fact that everything we need, including shops are nearby.
