Bedrooms 4
Space 1,937 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 6 - 7 nights


About the property

Do you want a spacious, open plan, modern villa in quiet estate with sunny SOUTH facing private 10m x 4m x 2m deep heated pool? 15/20 minutes drive to Walt Disney World? Then Awenasa Villa sleeping a maximum of 10, should be your first choice. We think that we are great value for money, you get everything you need in the villa for a comfortable stay, why look elsewhere?

Your master bedroom comes with a king sized bed, 40" flatscreen TV, ensuite with twin sinks, Jacuzzi bath and shower. Step straight onto the pool patio through handy sliding doors. You will have more than enough storage space in the large walk-in cupboard for clothes.

Equally comfortable is the queen bedroom with bathroom privacy, a toilet and shower, and direct pool access from here. Be sure to relax with your feet up and watch the flatscreen TV! Again, a large walk-in cupboard will hold all your holiday clothes.

Our third bedroom has two single beds and is adjacent to the third bathroom. More than enough storage space again in the large cupboard.

For the really young at heart put them into the Disney Room, the fourth bedroom. It's all fun here with a single bed and a bunk sleeping three. Again, the room is adjacent to the third bathroom.

Your kitchen is absolutely bursting with everything you'll need for a complete self catering vacation! There is a laundry room with washing machine and dryer.

The main lounge is where to relax, perhaps take in some TV or play the PS2. A second lounge is ideal for a change of seating area! Dine open plan in the spacious open area adjacent to the kitchen. Your pool is never far away, just a few steps outside the lounge doors, protected by child alarms as are all pool doors. The covered lanai is the retreat when the sun gets too much, and you'll appreciate the ceiling fan to cool you down further.

FREE UNLIMITED internet is available through the whole house and pool deck.

If you have come for the Florida sunshine, you will most certainly get it relaxing all day on the privacy pool deck, from early morning to sunset. Or sit outside in the balmy Florida evening after a day at the Parks with a well deserved drink. Cool down in the large pool, 10m x 4m x 2m deep. Between October and May we recommend pool heating just to make that swim really comfortable.

Your children (and adults!) will have a great time at the pool table and darts board. For baby there is a high chair and a stroller; we've also provided 6 beach chairs, 2 umbrellas, a full set of beach towels and 2 bicycles + helmets all included in the price!

Everything household you need for self catering.

200 channel cable TV in lounge, master and queen bedrooms.

About Roy Smart

We are a Scottish couple living in Edinburgh and love our Florida vacations! We discovered Florida in 1981 and have been returning regularly ever since. In 2005 we decided that we would purchase a villa of our own and make Orlando a regular destination.

New for 2017! We are replacing our front palm tree which has seen the best of its days with a new young palm and removing the hedge in front of the villa to make for easier maintenance.

Roy Smart purchased this villa in 2005

Why Roy Smart chose Westridge

Well, quite simply, it offered all that we wanted for our family vacations. We looked at 20 villas and chose and named Awenasa (Cherokee for 'home'). The south facing deck, large pool, spacious and well appointed layout and quiet neighbourhood are are relevant now as they were then.

What makes this villa unique

South facing LARGE deep pool, quiet neighbourhood, spacious villa with all you need for a self catering vacation and only 20 minutes from Walt Disney World!

Superb villa and best pool area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this superb villa for almost 4 weeks. We are regular visitors to Florida and this is without doubt the best property we have rented. The pool area is excellent and larger than all the others. Spacious villa with everything you would possibly need. Home owners are extremely easy and reliable to deal with. We will be back God willing. Would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this outstanding villa.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Florida for 21years now and so have stayed in numerous villas over the years....not all good! However, Awenasa is undoubtedly our favourite so far and, considering how fussy we are these days, that is no mean feat. We chose it because it was in our favourite area to stay and it had everything we prefer and expect in a Florida villa but on arrival it was even better in person if that's possible. It is so spacious, especially since there are only 4 of us, but we like plenty of room! The swimming pool is fantastic, the patio/lanai area is perfect and in fact the whole villa is immaculately maintained. You can absolutely tell that the owners take great personal pride in it. All linens and towels were great quality, appliances modern and clean, beds super comfortable. The pool table was popular as always and we had weekly family tournaments as usual! Another tiny thing I loved, as "mum duties" don't stop (by choice lol), was the washing line in the garage!!! As much as it may seem sad to some, what a difference it makes from the usual clothes horses provided, so much better! The neighbours are lovely and we have made a friend for the future which was so unexpected. Just for the icing on the cake, Roy was so friendly and easy to deal with and he patiently answered any questions quickly. Will absolutely be returning for our next holiday. Thank you so much.

Just a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Awenasa Villa was spacious and exceptionally clean. we loved the big pool and the southerly aspect. There were 7 of at the busiest point but 6 of us most of the time. 4-5 adults and 2 children.

It was easy to find and well located with easy access to restaurants and supermarkets. just 5 minutes from highway 192 which was awash with well known family restaurants.

The villa feels like it has 3 zones, a master suite, a guest suite and two central bedrooms that share a bathroom - ideal for the kids in the group.

There was never a problem getting some quite time, which can be tough in smaller properties. The villa had everything we could want including beach towels (on the agreement that we wash and dry them before we left which was easy as the villa has a washer and a dryer in the utility).

15-20 mins from Disney and 40 mins from the airport made it an easy location. Quiet neighbours too.

We would stay there again without hesitation.

WOW! What a stunning and huge villa. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay, in a perfect location. We were a family of 7and we had plenty of room. The pool is amazing and the whole place was so relaxing and catered for all of our ages (6 years up to 50years) We loved the pool table and darts board, and it was so lovely just to chill and relax after the days at the theme parks. The layout of the villa was perfect as everyone had their own space to chill away from the others if they so required.

We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Orlando.

A brilliant stay at this spacious villa!

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 4) spend a good 10 days in this villa during October.

The villa has a nice open plan lay out which we found really appealing.

The living room is spacious with view over the pool and the large kitchen is well equipped.

Each bedroom is of a good size with the master bedroom being very big indeed, as well as its ensuite bathroom.

The ample wardrobe space helped a lot after all the shopping that was done!!

The pool area however is the thing that makes this villa stand out from villas we have rented in the Orlando area before (and we have rented quite a few!!)

The south facing pool is the biggest we have ever seen in Orlando. Even in October we had direct sunlight from 0730am till 0530 pm!

Next to this, there is a very good sized patio area, which provides plenty of shaded area for those who need a break from the sun.

The pool has a shallow end and a deep end, so plenty of variety for different skilled swimmers.It was heated very well which meant that our kids were in the pool from morning until night...they loved it!!!

The garage has a pool table and darts board, so quite a few games were played.

The neighboorhood is in an ideal location for shops/restaurants and all theme parks.

We found the neighbourhood to be very quiet, which was great considering we spend most days outside at the pool.

It was a short walk to a small play park,community pool and tennis courts...perfect!

All in all a great place where we definately would like to return to!
