About Christine and Patrick hicks
Hi We are Patrick and Christine, We first went to Florida when our children were small and fell in love with it . I am a Disney fanatic or so my family tell me. Patrick just loves the weather. We bought our lovely house in 2004 after renting it,We have been renting it out since 2005 but every year we update it.as we want our guests to love it as much as we do. We now have grandchildren and they also love to visit our Florida home. We love renting the house to 1st time visitors as I enjoy telling them of all the places to go to and give them lots of tips to make their visit more enjoyable. We like to visit ourselves 4 times a year and that helps us with checking that everything is ok with the house but we have an excellent management team over there. Enjoy your Holiday.
Christine and Patrick hicks purchased this House in 2004
Why Christine and Patrick hicks chose Westridge
We bought our house after renting it in2004 we love the location as it is not overlooked and we enjoy watching the sunsets with a glass of wine after a busy day at the parks.It is located on a residential estate so is lovely and quiet. but is only a short distance from the parks ,shops,golf etc. we have a lovely pool area so is ideal if you want to relax we also have a covered lanai so you can sit and eat or drink with out getting sunburnt which is handy with young children.
What makes this House unique
The location and pool area is a great advantage with our house. It is also decorated in cream colours which we change and update all the time.All our visitors say how peaseful it is and we have lots of repeat bookings. We also charge the same all year round and do not put up the price at peak times which could be one of the reasons we are fully booked at popular times.

House was ok
House was very average and not too bad. The only big down falls are the beds (all of them) are hard as concrete and that’s putting it lightly. After putting every spare blanket on top of the master bedroom, it was still as hard as concrete and not comfortable enough to sleep.
The second big problem was trash
There was 2 trash cans. One for recycle and one for trash
Both was completely full to the top and you could tell they had been full for some time. The smell was horrid on that side of the house. Not to mention the availability to put our trash in took a act of magic.
The house however was good and the location was good. The cleanliness was ok
Nothing to brag about but not too bad either. We met the cleaning lady when we got there. She was finishing her work and was extremely nice to talk to.
All in all we had a great time and would do it again
We are sorry Tim was not happy with our beds. They are all relatively new. No one in our 14 years of owning our house has ever complained about them . Our Florida home could not have been that bad if he said he would return again but maybe he should find another house more to his liking. Just look at our other reviewers. Regards Patrick & Christine hicks
The house was beautiful. My kids really enjoyed spending time in the pool. Nice, quiet neighborhood. It was close to the main attractions which I loved. I would highly recommend this place and am looking forward to renting it again.
Great family summer vacation rental property
The house was just right for our family of four. We went to Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Legoland, and enjoyed the pool in the backyard on our rest days between parks. Note that we found the above mentioned parks are actually about 30-35 minutes away, but still close enough for convenient access. Communication with the property management any time we had a question was prompt and helpful. Very close to Publix and Walmart, and plenty of options for nearby food (take out, pizza, etc). Overall everything was great and we would stay here again.
Great home and quiet location
Many thanks carmen, glad you enjoyed your stay
Kind regards christine & Patrick

Lovely villa a short and easy drive from Disney
We had a lovely stay, family of 4 with 2 teenage boys who loved the pool and the fact they had their own bedrooms to retreat to. Well equipped if you fancy staying in to cook, however lots of good places to sit in or take out close by. If we come back to Orlando I would definitely return to Dillon Way.
Many thanks for your kind review. We love our guests to enjoy staying at our Florida home. You are most welcome to come back & stay again.
Kind regards Christine & Patrick Hicks
