The Westridge estate is situated between the I4 at junction 58 and the 192, it is a pleasant community that is part residential and part short term let villas which gives an ideal mix and a easy and laid back sort of feeling to the estate. It also gives peace of mind that there is always someone around to watch over your villa which is useful if you are the owner, but the same if you are renting the villa.
It is around a thirty-minute drive from Orlando International Airport and about an hour drive from Sanford Airport so is not to far from your arrival point. A ten-minute drive will get you to the Disney parks and around 20 to 25 minutes will get you up into the International Drive area with all the parks and facilities such as Wet and Wild, Universal and Sea World, of course the worlds largest McDonalds is there for the kids.
There is a bus service that runs up and down International Drive and this could be used to see where you want to visit and hop on and off as required.
The Westridge Estate is a superb area to base yourself as it is only an hour drive to NASA, just over an hour to the Coco beach, and the same to Daytonna where the beach is lovely sand and goes on for miles.
Closer to the estate and down on the 192, about a five minute drive away you have Kissimmee Old Town where there is shopping and a fun fair and every Saturday a vintage car parade. Just a little further is Celebration, the Disney owned town where there is always something happening and some good restaurants, and on the 192 itself, a plethora of restaurants from all you can eat places like the Golden Coral, to Steakhouses like Logans.
A couple of miles from the estate is a Publix supermarket and just a little further is a large 24 hour Wal-Mart.
Back to the estate itself, it is a very quiet estate but has a good public facility area offering a communal swimming pool, floodlit tennis courts, volleyball and a kids area and this is for the use of the owners of the villas, and their guests.
So, the estate is well situated for visiting all of the areas that you would want to in Florida, but far enough away from the glare and sounds of the parks to relax in the peace that surrounds the estate. Wildlife abounds around the area with buzzards, deer, raccoons, cranes, etc.
If you would like a peaceful holiday, but be able to visit the parks and restaurants on offer without to much trouble, look at Westridge.
