Our fabulous villa boasts outstanding, uninterrupted views over the luxurious vegetation and sparkling ponds of the wetlands conservation area and will be the base for a most memorable vacation.
It is situated in the well established 'prestigious' Westridge community and from our extremely private pool you will enjoy the very best views over the conservation area - a tropical paradise with an abundance of birdlife. Yet we are located just 15 minutes drive from Disney World.
The accommodation which sleeps 8 (plus one infant) in absolute comfort, consists of a master bedroom with king size bed, master en-suite bathroom and large patio doors exiting to the pool area and one double bedroom with queen size bed and en-suite bathroom with exit to the pool area. Both king and queen suites are ideal for couples who like to wake up to an early morning swim without disturbing anyone else in the home or for returning directly to your suite after late night swims or drinks around the pool while the children are safely asleep in bed. Each of the two twin bedrooms has two single beds and a shared bathroom to provide perfect accommodation for younger guests.
No need to worry about the children, while you enjoy that swim, you can monitor their rooms with our home intercom and music distribution system which is also complete with CD player and AM/FM radio and has a sub-station in every bedroom and on the lanai. The system can also be used to play CD's or listen to the radio in any room.
The screened pool, which is 28ft by 14ft with a spa at the far end, looks wonderful at night with the underwater lights on. Solar heating is provided free of charge year round, while extra gas powered heating is available at an additional charge, and is to be recommended from November to March.
The pool and deck areas, which are not overlooked by any other pool in the area, are equipped with sun loungers, chairs, table and trolley for enjoying the Florida sunshine. The large lanai area is just perfect for dining and relaxing. The lanai roof provides refreshing shade from the sunlight and is an excellent place for alfresco cooking on the gas barbecue provided.

Central Florida is a wonderful place to spend a vacation and not just for the theme parks and Orlando tourist attractions.
Both east and west coasts are an easy day trip and you can experience the best of both. Daytona, Cocoa Beach and the Kennedy Space Center (check out their website for rocket launch dates) to the east and on the west you can take a trip to Tampa, Clearwater or St Petersburg.
If you're heading to Tampa don't miss out on Busch Gardens for some up-close animal encounters and thrilling coaster rides.
When you tire of theme park rides try out a State park, hire a canoe or kayak and take to the inland waters where you can see turtles, gators and an abundance of birds. Wekiva state park has a wonderful natural spring pool where you can cool off after your paddling.
Our villa, situated in the Westridge community, is ideally located for visiting all of Central Florida. You will be just minutes from Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and all the other Orlando Attractions.
Get away from the Orlando crowds and spend a day at Legoland, just outside Winter Haven, south on Hwy 27 past the Posner Park shopping mall. There are plenty of eating places close by and a huge Walmart a few miles north on Hwy 27. Another interesting place to visit away from the main crowds and in the same direction is Historic Bok Sanctuary, beautiful gardens and a carillion tower.
If you like a drop of wine with your alfresco barbeques, take a trip to Lakeridge Winery for a tour and tasting, or better still check out their website for details of their weekend music fests. They really are good fun!
While heading to Lakeridge stop off at the Citrus Tower in Clermont to get some fantastic views over the lakes. Then visit Lake Minneola beach for a stroll or take a picnic to eat in the shade.
