Jeff and I have been Florida Homeowners since 2004, on a nearby community. We decided to purchase a larger property with a pool, and after MUCH searching found what we wanted at the Manors South at Westridge.
The villa has been completely redecorated and refurbished to a high standard, and this an ongoing process - we visit at least twice a year to ensure everything is in excellent condition for our guests. We have provided two 40 inch HD TVs for the formal lounge and family room, with a surround sound system and 100 TV channels for the former, and 300 channels for the latter. Cable is supplied to all the bedrooms, with 19 inch HDTVs in the Master Bedroom and Queen Guest Bedroom and standard portable TVs in the other two bedrooms.
The private, screened pool at the rear of the property, overlooking a green belt area, is in sun for almost all of the day, early spring though to autumn, with plenty of space for sunbathing. It features underwater and deck lighting and all weather furniture. We have extended the pool deck and screens by six feet across the rear, so it now measures app. 36 feet by 24 feet, and the pool itself is about 25 feet long.
The kitchen is fully equipped and is located in the centre of the villa between the two lounge areas. There is also a separate laundry/ utility room.
We chose the Manors South because it's a well established and well looked after gated community, with many amenities on site. The villa is in a quiet area, not overlooked at the rear.
We have created a games area in the garage, with a pool table, electronic darts and Foosball game.
A cleaning fee of $85.00 is required for stays of less than 7 nights duration.
If pool heat is required there is a weekly fee of $70.
A discount may be offered for stays of over two weeks duration, subject to the owners discretion.

The Manors South at Westridge is ideally located for easy access to Interstate 4 or the US 192, if you plan on visiting Disney, Universal or any of the many other Orlando attractions. It is also a great base if you plan on venturing further afield - our guests have visited Daytona, Miami, Naples, the Keys, Sanibel Island, Cocoa, Tampa etc. etc.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Jeff and I are from the North East UK, and visit Florida at least twice a year.When we do eventually retire altogether we may stay for longer periods (daughter permitting!) We've been visiting Florida since 1990, and enjoy it as much now as we did the first time. We are always available for advice, particularly on shopping!
Why the Owner Chose The Manors at Westridge: We were searching for a house while we were in Florida in May 2009 (with the most patient and helpful Realtor you could ever meet) and there were so many properties where we either liked the house but not the location, or vice versa, and we'd just about given up until we went to the Manors at Westridge, where we fell in love with one villa but unfortunately were pipped at the post. However when this property came up for sale it was identical to the first but (we think!) in a better location, with no rear neighbors.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We know what it's like to stay in a hotel room, with limited facilities and space, so we have tried to provide everything you are likely to need for a wonderful holiday - Large HD TV's in both living areas (get rid of the kids!), beach towels, hair driers and styling equipment, books, DVDs, Sat Nav etc etc. We also have a high chair, travel cot, and stroller for our younger guests, at no extra charge.
We are also lucky to have great caretakers in Greg and Julie, who look after both of our properties. Theirs is also a family owned and run business, which gives the added peronal touch - our guests have nothing but praise for them.
