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.

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!
Sandra H. purchased this villa in 2009
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 an open outlook at the rear..
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, one with Netflix enabled, 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 personal touch - our guests have nothing but praise for them.
We stayed at palm tree villa in May/June 2016 and it was absolutely perfect. We stayed as a party of 4 adults, and 5 kids. Great living space, with two lounges so we could watch something different to the kids on a night. The kids loved the pool, probably more than the theme parks, which were really easy to get to from the villa. They also loved the games room and had loads to occupy them while us adults had time to chill out! The villa sits on a lovely quiet gated estate, pool has a private outlook and gets the sun all day. It had everything we needed, a home from home. Sat Nav was particularly useful to navigate to our destinations. When we arrived, the villa was clean, very well presented, and Sandra (owner) provided lots of great information on the villa, surrounding area and recommendations for food, days out, and lots of other tips. She was also very responsive to emails while we were there if we had any questions. Overall a fantastic holiday, and I would wholeheartedly recommend palm tree villa as an excellent place and location, especially for families.
This is our third visit to this wonderful house but the first with all the family 2 sons their partners and 3 grandchildren. This is a wonderful place with everything you could want from a home away from home, cots and pushchairs were there for the children and the pool was fantastic we will always recommend this to our friends we could not ask fro a better place to stay.
A wonderful place to return to after a hectic day at the parks, all the comforts and amenities of home, clean comfortable and spacious, we were a family of six. we we have been to orlando many times, firs time at jeff and sandra's villa, it won't be the last, we have already recommended this villa to friends, or anyone else reading this review
The villa is super. Photos are accurate and the place is very clean and neat. We only stayed 4 nights but were able to enjoy the pool which is well-maintained.
If you're looking for a great place to spend with your family, this is perfect. We have no complaints and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating.
Yes it is a good 20-30 min drive from Disney but for the value, it is worth the drive. Some places we saw were going for $200+ a night because of its location near Disney.
We would definitely stay here again!
This was my second visit to florida but the first for my husband, kids and Inlaws and what a holiday. The villa is ideally located, close enough to disney, but also central to the malls and lego land. The villa has ample living space, we didn't need to use one of the sitting rooms as we all fitted in one. There are loads of fresh clean towels in the bathrooms as well as in every wardrobe you look in. A cupboard in the kitchen has everything that any family member needs from small fans, clothes brush to spare shampoo etc. The kids spent all there time in the pool which didn't need heating as it was warm anyway. The information given by Jeff and Sharon as well as the sat nav made looking for places to visit, eat and shop very easy. Fantastic holiday, highly recommended by us and friends who had already stayed here. Def going back to florida and will stay here, if we can get booked in!!
This is our 2nd visit to Sandra and Jeff's villa at The manors westridge. We have had such a great time relaxing in their lovely home. It is very well equipt, clean and has everything you may need and more. It is very close to all amenities, including beaches at Daytona, Clearwater( about I hrs drive), Sarasota and Anna Maria( about 2hrs) If you wish to have a relaxing day away from the parks and shopping ,their pool deck is the perfect place as its hosts the sunshine all day long! I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone of any age, you wont be disappointed.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this villa, gets better everytime.
Would recommend it to anyone.
Facilities 1st class, close to all amenities, parks, shopping etc.
Information available from owners was very useful and beneficial.
The personal service we received from the owners would certainly not be available at any other type of accomodation.
Can't stress enough that there is more to see and do in Florida than theme parks.
Hopefully we will visit again soon and wouldn't consider anywhere else other than this villa, it's perfect.
It's a huge peace of mind knowing that Greg and Julie, the caretakers for this property are very approachable and only a phone call away, if needed.
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.
