Villa in West Stonebridge, Davenport, USA - Luxury Villa with Free Heated Pool, all-year Sun Deck, Games Room & Wi-Fi (Only 15 mins to Disney)
About Jackie Hastings
I live in Hampshire, England with my husband, 2 children and our chocolate Labrador, Magnum. My husband, Graeme, works in Central London and we relish our trips to Orlando for a proper break with all the family. We try to get out there as often as we can afford the flights which normally means once a year.
Jackie Hastings purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Jackie Hastings chose West Stonebridge
We really enjoyed our trips to Orlando and the theme parks before we had our kids. The whole area is totally geared to having a great time, whatever your age. So when we could, we decided to buy a home there. Not the best timing from a financial point of view but perfect for the family! We chose the home because of its ideal location to DisneyWorld (15 mins) and other parks, the great access to restaurants and other amenities nearby. We also like West Stonebridge because it is small and quiet, unlike some of the bigger villa communities.
What makes this Villa unique
Only 15 mins to Disney makes this place ideal. The parks are amazing: The children love them and so do we! The service culture and food quality just makes dining in nearby restaurants an absolute pleasure. As we and the kids get older, we just find new things to do at the parks and other attractions. Of course, the weather makes it a great destination all times of the year. Having our own pool is idyllic and we often enjoy 'days off' by the pool with the BBQ blazing more that the days out!
