THE PERFECT VILLA IN A PERFECT LOCATION - FOR A PERFECT VACATION
'Sandpipers' is set in one of the best positions at Weston Hills, a small, exclusive, gated community located on US27 just 3 miles north of its junction with HW192. As you drive through the electric 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. It has a very active Home Owners Association to ensure the community always looks its best.
Disney World is around 15 minutes away, using a useful short-cut we will tell you about to avoid the queues along HW192. Shops (inc. a Wal-Mart Superstore), supermarkets, restaurants, gas station & pharmacy are all within a few minutes drive, as of course are many Golf Courses. Universal Studios, Sea World & Aquatica may be reached in about 30 minutes, depending on the traffic. Weston Hills is just a few miles from Lake Louisa State Park, with its own beach, nature trails & fishing.
YOUR VACATION STARTS WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY
Vacations are increasingly important and precious in our high-pressure lives. With 'Sandpipers', we have carefully chosen a unique property and equipped it to provide a real haven to return to after the hustle and bustle of the Theme Parks, or a tiring day golfing or shopping.
We look forward to welcoming you to 'Sandpipers' soon.......

An amazing stay
Having just returned from an amazing stay at this beautiful property. We were 2 small families together and this spacious villa has made us feel home. This villa is beautifully finished and thought out, everything we needed was available if not more. The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom were amazing and spacious. The pool is very private with a very good size compared to other villa we stayed in the past, the kids had so much fun there! The whole booking and communication process were very efficient. The owner has kindly provided a Christmas Tree and we managed to put it up which was an highlight of our holiday. Truly an amazing place to stay, will definitely recommend it to our family and friends. Thank you so much!

Charming villa in excellent location
Charming villa in excellent location
The villa is located away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando but is near enough to the theme parks and local shops to be convenient. The gated community gives a feeling of safety and has some excellent facilities. The villa is very well equipped with lots of room. Furnishings and beds are comfortable. The pool is excellent although we didn't have much opportunity to use it during our stay. We encountered a couple of small issues that the management company addressed within a couple hours of us reporting them. We had an excellent holiday that was enhanced by the accommodation.

We really didn't want to leave!
Your villa was fabulous! We really didn't want to leave! I have already passed your villa details onto a friend of my mums who is planning to go to Florida next year. We would also love to return at some point! A big bonus was the hot tub! Brilliant after a long day walking around the parks. I want one at home now! Haha. Thanks for letting us stay at sandpipers! We had a great time.

We were very, very impressed with the villa and pool. By far the best one I have stayed in on any holiday. The bedrooms were all excellent sizes and beautifully decorated. Everything was very clean and in excellent condition and anything we wanted was there.....we had a fantastic holiday and would all have loved to have stayed there for at least another week.

We loved the villa and the fact it was south west facing meant we had the sun till early evening. I think you have pitched it just right as the look and feel when you enter is terrific. Hopefully we will return at some point in the future.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Hi, we are Iain and Amanda Burrup. We live in the beautiful Cotswolds area of the United Kingdom, and have owned 'Sandpipers', our dream Florida vacation home since 2006. 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 shopping for little extras that we feel will enhance our guests' experience. If you decide to choose 'Sandpipers' for your Florida vacation, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Best wishes, Iain and Amanda.
Why the Owner Chose Weston Hills:
Weston Hills, where our villa 'Sandpipers' is located, is a great place to stay, if you want to be close to the 'action' but, as we do, enjoy retreating to a peaceful retreat to relax and re-charge for the next busy day. Weston Hills is a quiet, gated community 3 miles north of the busy HW 192, and is within 2-3 minutes drive of several supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies, garages, banks etc. Yet because the Weston Hills is primarily a residential, rather than a vacation community, as soon as you drive through the main gates you feel a million miles away from all the hustle and bustle. We also like the fact that Weston Hills is a deed restricted community with a very active Homeowners Association, which ensures that the public areas are kept immaculate and the homes have to comply with strict guidelines regarding appearance, car parking etc.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The main plus point for us of 'Sandpipers' is its wonderfully peaceful location - it is set right at the edge of the community, with no houses to obstruct the far-reaching views from the pool deck over the miles of conservation wetlands. You will very likely see the hot air balloons drifting over early in the morning, and see and hear a variety of bird and wildlife. We love getting up early some mornings and having a coffee out on the pool deck and watching the mist slowly evaporate over the wetlands, and listening to the birdsong - or the rather more raucous calls of the local sandhill cranes. We are lucky with the orientation of 'Sandpipers', because the extended pool deck area faces both south and west, so even from very early in the morning, we normally find at least one part of the deck is already in the sun. And of course, given the right weather conditions, we often can watch spectacular sunsets in the west, accompanied by a very vocal 'frog chorus'. We also enjoy the huge amount of space in our villa! This is a special treat for us, as our tiny English cottage home would fit probably 2-3 times within the 3000sq ft space that 'Sandpipers' offers. And we like the fact that the Weston Hills community offers several facilities which we and our guests can use free of charge, including a childrens' pool and play area, large community pool, tennis courts and basketball courts.
