Alison Ward purchased this House in 2002
Why Alison Ward chose Westridge
So why this house? ......we were looking for a property for a future investment. We looked at hundreds of properties but this one was different. Inside was spacious with a home from home feeling and outside peaceful and safe. The area was great, well established and the view behind the house was stunning - breathtaking! Can't describe it - Still feel the same today. We loved it!
What makes this House unique
The house is not overlooked from the back and there is a very large space between the side properties. Peaceful after those long days at the parks but close enough to everything you need. Stunning outlook for those evenings round the pool with a glass of wine after a long day at the parks, when the kids are in bed (intercomm system included). You'll love it.

Alison was excellent to deal with.
Villa was nice although needed a few very minor points sorting e.g. tap leaking in bathroom, and some of the handles needing re-screwing. All in all it was a lovely, homely villa and I enjoyed my week long stay. I found the free international phone calls very useful to keep in touch with my family whilst on holiday.
It was very relaxing having breakfast by the pool.
I would recommend staying here.
I4 was a bit of a pain though, quite a few accidents causing delays, remember to add extra time if you are on a deadline.
Family of 8 stayed, highly recommend. Safe & clean home
Excellent communication with Allison. The house is very spacious & clean. Pool area was fab. Kids loved the onsite park a few minutes walk from home. Easy to get too from Airport, lots of shops & eateries just a short drive. Very safe & quiet neighbourhood.
A beautiful villa worth revisiting!! I know we will!!
This is THE place to stay at if you're visiting Florida for the Disney theme parks and Disney Springs. Only an hour and a half if you want to go to the beach, whether it's at the Gulf coast or the Atlantic coast. They're about the same distance. We went to Cocoa Beach and loved it there. You must eat at Pelican's Bar and Grill on the pier if going to Cocoa Beach! The property owner is very nice and accommodating. She answers promptly if you have any questions or concerns.
This is in a great location but the property it self needs some updating. I had a lengthy discussion with the owner about the property management not doing the up keep and the cleaning was not done! We had a couple of cool days and the pool would not stay warm (I think that should be set higher so that it would keep its heat).The solar blanket was dirty and bunched up in the garage . I hope that things can be taken care of .It is a nice property. Thought we might get a return discount but this was not offered. :-(
Our stay in Florida..
We arrived at the villa and were pleasantly pleased it was exactly like in the pictures..it was a really lovely place. Pool area was fab..really quiet area too and only 20mins drive to the parks. Just a couple of little things that could be improved..a lot of the plastic blinds didn’t turn..couple were already broke..the patio doors in the main downstairs bedroom wouldn’t open and the one in lounge needs a good oiling as very noisey to open. Plenty of home furnishings there though..including all cooking utensils etc. Management company only a short drive to get to to check in and very accommodating. Alison was very easy to communicate with and couldn’t of been more helpful when booking. We would definitely stay here again but just feel a little tlc would make a big difference in certain areas. Thanks Alison for a lovely home whilst on our holiday.

Booked to stay for two weeks at this property due to its price and location.
Nice quiet neighbourhood without being too far from the theme parks and restaurants.
We enjoyed the layout and relaxed nature of the house and of course many hours by and in the pool.
We visited beaches on both Florida coastlines from here in less than 90 minutes drive time.
