House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Whispering Palms is having a little facelift at the moment!
We have just had the exterior painted a rich cream colour ( May 2014) and the house looks lovely! We are now landscaping the garden at the front of the house so as to remove some of the greenery at the front and replant which should enhance the exterior. In July we will purchase new pool furniture and dining furniture and also change the table and chairs in the informal dining area within the house. Thus it will be set to receive all future guests.

Whispering Palms is a very comfortable home to return to at the end of a busy day at Disney. Most of the windows have closing curtains if required and we have purchased very comfortable pillow topped matressess to ensure a good nights sleep! Formosa Gardens is just off the busy 192 so it is very easy to get around from here. We work hard at maintaining the standards in the home and we have management on call if required. On your day of departure you can stay in the home until you need to leave for the airport.

"An Excellent Choice"
We had a wonderful time at Whispering Palms and think it is an excellent choice of villa both for the quality of accommodation and its location. It is large, comfortable and well maintained.
We were an extended family group comprising children, parents and grandparents and we found the accommodation ideal. The pool is a good size, not overlooked, and we spent a lot of time there.
The Disney parks are very close and easy to access. So a typical day was a Disney location in the morning, the pool in the afternoon and then one of the many restaurants along the 192 in the evening.
Other parks such as Universal are not far away and easy to visit. Some of us visited the Space Centre at Cape Canaveral and were lucky enough to observe an actual launch – which was pretty spectacular.
There are a couple of good supermarkets very nearby for essential supplies.
Support from the management company was excellent. When we had a fault with the TVs they got it fixed the next day. The owner was also very helpful - eg with suggestions for restaurants/places to visit.
All round we highly recommend this villa.
