About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

You will love coming home to our relaxing villa after a long day at the theme parks! This luxury villa stands out from the standard rental villas. A stainless steel kitchen and granite counters will either make you feel at home, or give you a little pampering while on vacation. Jump in the large, refreshing, SOUTHERN pool (lots of pool toys included), or curl up with a good book and cool drink on the patio lounge chairs. Listen to nature sing to you in the backyard. Privacy screens on both sides give you an extra secluded pool area. Still have lots of energy to spare? Head on out to the game room and test your skills on the XBOX 360 with Kinect on the large Flat Screen TV. Or, walk over to the clubhouse and use the exercise room. Do you want to lap swim? Grab your towel and jump in the large community pool. Vacations are for leaving work behind and bonding with family. You can do this when you compete in some foosball or play some of our board games/puzzles. Can't leave work behind? Bring your laptop and enjoy free Wi-Fi. We want you to call your friends at home and tell them what a great time you are having, so we have including FREE long distance within the USA and Canada. Love to read, but you didn't have space to pack books? I have a large basket of children's books, and magazines and books for the adults to enjoy. Do the kids still have energy to burn off at the end of the day? Take them for a nice walk around the block in the gated community (stroller included for the littlest one). Too tired to do anything but crash in bed or on the couch? Don't worry- we have lots of cable channels for you to choose from, and several DVDs. Our home has 6 Flat Screen TV's, so everyone can watch his or her favorite show. Bring your quarters to enjoy some gum from our large gumball machine in the garage!

Our home has been completely remodeled and inspirationally decorated, including tile throughout eating areas, new furniture, new bedding and linens, fresh custom interior, deck and exterior paint. The kitchen has everything you need to cook as you would at home. We have a washer, dryer and iron for your use. We have 2 master suites with private bathrooms. This makes it nice for you to share our home with another family, or bring along the grandparents or nanny to help with the kids. Our home was designed with family in mind. It has a high chair with plenty of child-friendly dinner ware for your younger ones. Our 2 bedrooms are decorated for the kids. One room is decorated with a sports theme, and the other one is decorated with a Princess theme. (Taking your princess to Disney, but you forgot her dress-up dress at home? Feel free to borrow one of ours for the day.) Your kids will love the Mickey and Minnie Mouse bathroom just for them. Are you heading out to the beach? Borrow our beach towels and beach toys. Does your little one refuse to fall asleep without a bed time story? Choose from lots of children's books to read. We have a port-a-crib for infants, so you don't have to worry where to put the little one. Once the kids are in bed, relax in the King size bed with a door leading out to the pool for that late-night swim. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee on the southern pool deck in the morning and watch the hot air balloons fly overhead around 7 AM. We are within 5 minutes of grocery and several big-box shopping stores, and have easy access to I-4. Included is FREE unlimited laundry soap, trash bags, and dishwasher soap!

Your family will love staying in our home so much, that they will beg to stay home from the parks! Call or email today, so we can start making your Florida vacation dream come true!

About melinda carrabs

I am a school teacher. I love traveling, biking, doing puzzles, playing games and reading with my children, having bonfires, and entertaining with friends and family.

My husband is a painter from Italy. He loves fishing, hunting, and spending time with family.

melinda carrabs purchased this house in 2014

Why melinda carrabs chose The Manors at Westridge

We chose this home to buy as a rental home because we love the privacy and the view of the back yard. This is our second vacation home (pictured above is us at our first home). We love welcoming guests and friends into our vacation home. This home is perfectly located conveniently to shopping, attractions, interstate 4, and it is easy to get to.

What makes this house unique

We love getting up early, taking morning walks and sitting on the deck to enjoy our coffee. Around 7 in the morning, beautiful hot air balloons fly nearby the home. I chose this home because it has no rear neighbors and is super quiet.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family (2 adults and 2 children ages 7 and 10) took their first vacation to Florida and stayed at this home. We've never rented a home before, and previously just stayed in hotels on trips. I must say that I prefer the rental home a WHOLE lot more...especially this one! First of all, the home is decorated in such a way that it is both beautiful and welcoming. The decor puts a wonderful focus on faith, family, and friends - which was greatly appreciated. The living room area was cozy, and the dining areas were plentiful. If you have lots of people with you, you don't have to worry about space! The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils and kitchenware we could possibly need. The game room kept the kids busy and had a fun selection of activities. My daughter especially loved the gum ball machine! The kids (and adults) were engaged in hopscotch, coloring, card games, foosball, and board games. My husband and I really appreciated the laundry facilities, too! The bedrooms were comfortable, and the three bathrooms were a blessing! The kids were in love with their rooms' decor. The pool was just the right size for our family to enjoy, and the kids loved the pool toys. The multiple TVs in the home gave us some independent time to relax and regroup. Further, the home was located in a quiet and secure community and was at a great spot for driving to the theme parks. We were close to pizza places and stores so we could stock up on whatever we needed for our stay. Let me tell you, this home was such a blessing to come back to after a fun but thoroughly exhausting day at the theme parks. It was like coming back to all the comforts of our own, and then some! Finally, the Carrabs family was a delight to deal with. Melinda answered my questions quickly and was very helpful and kind. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home for your getaway! I know that our family will be returning for many years to come.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean and spacious for our family of five and looked exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The house was well equipped with all the essential amenities. My kids especially enjoyed the pool, game room and the gumball machine. The owner was pleasant to deal with and would respond to your message in a timely manner. I would not hesitate in recommending this home to anyone looking to vacation in Orlando. We will rent this house again for our 2019 vacation.

Amazing house and close to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was very clean and updated, and had everything we needed during our stay. We had six people with us for the majority of our trip, and we all had space to stretch out between the four bedrooms! The kids loved the pool and the game room. The owner was great with communication prior to the trip. We did have to call the management company one time due to a pool pump leak, but they very very professional and polite and had the problem fixed within hours.

I would highly recommend this house if you are staying at Disney and want more room than a hotel offers. We would cook meals and eat by the pool. We even went to Magic Kingdom one day, left after lunch and came to the house to rest, then went back to Magic Kingdom for all the nighttime fun!

The home is in a gated community, so we felt very safe and secure, and it was very quiet. The pizza place by the community had good food also! We will rent this house again for our next long trip to Disney.

Great Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home over the holidays. The home is exactly as described. It is comfortable, clean and comes complete with all the amenities of home. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and provided all the necessary details in an accurate and timely fashion. The location has convenient access to drug stores and a super market. Access to Disney and the 4 is easy with alternate routes available on heavy traffic days. This home will not disappoint and will make your vacation a memorable one.

Awesome stay! Kids had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and well maintained. The kids loved the Disney themed rooms and we all loved the pool. 20 minute drive to Disney was not bad at all. Quiet neighborhood in a gated community. Will stay again for sure!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We were so comfortable in this home! The kids themed rooms (especially the bunk beds) were a big hit with the kids! Kitchen is beautiful and everything is modern. All the baby items we needed were available, and there were lots of pool toys along with puzzles, games, movies and toys in the house as well! Such a comfort, we will definitely return!
