About Dawn smith

We purchased our lovely villa in March 2015 after thinking about doing this for over 25 years! We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren and all went on holiday in October last year 2014, which then motivated us to actually do something about the dream of buying our own place. We were born in Scotland and were both brought up in Germany as 'army' children and now live in Perth. We love spending time with our family and friends. Travelling to different places is one of our favourite things to do.

Why Dawn smith chose Sandy Ridge

This property is ideal for our family and a perfect size for us to be by ourselves or with friends. There is enough room for our family to take another family with them and also have room to not get under each other's feet. It is in a beautiful location and is only 20 mins from Disney parks, golf courses and shops.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this villa and we love how comfortable it is. Since our last visit in June 2016, Dawn and her family have put in brand new kitchen appliances inc fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and an air hockey table in the garage which the kids loved. The villa is spacious, exceptionally clean and the kids love the minnie and star wars themed rooms. The beds are comfortable and the pool is fantastic. The location is great too as its not far from champions gate and there are also shops just 5 mins away, a supermarket, pharmacy, places to eat etc. Also great location for the Disney parks, Its only a 10-15 min drive away. I would recommend this villa to anyone and we wont stay anywhere else now when we go to Orlando. Thank you for giving us a home away from home.

Another Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Villa just gets better and better. We stayed here 2 years ago and really loved the villa and decided to return this year and we were not disappointed. There have been many improvements and little upgrades, that just make it a very special place to stay and of course very comfortable. The villa is modern and immaculate throughout and its quite clear the owners take great pride ensuring all guests needs are catered for in every aspect.

We definitely recommend this accommodation to family and friends alike as you will not find a better villa in Davenport, Florida. If you have any questions regarding the accommodation, just ask Dawn (owner) who will only be glad to assist where possible as nothing is too much trouble.

We have been to Florida on numerous occasions and this villa is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in and will return again in the near future.

Absolutely fantastic villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from a 9 night stay in Dawn's beautiful villa. This is our 4th visit to Sandy Ridge but definitely the best villa we have ever stayed in. It is beautifully presented, spacious, very clean and has the feeling of a cared for home rather than just a rental property. It is the perfect place to relax in after a hectic day at the parks. The location is ideal for eating out & Publix supermarket is also close by. It is also conveniently located for access to the Disney theme parks, a 15-20 minute drive away. Dawn was a joy to deal with and made the whole process very simple & straightforward. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough & would definitely return, but for longer next time.

A fantastic villa. A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A Home away from Home...

Cannot recommend this Villa enough, we stayed for 3 weeks and felt like we were living at our own home. The facilities within the Villa were superb, the surrounding area had everything needed to hand. There were an abundance of places to eat and drink nearby; supermarkets and Pharmacies we're within 5 minutes for the villa essentials. So very close to the I4 to take you to the Disney, Universal or Sea World Parks. Look no further than this property to find the perfect retreat for your Orlando vacation.

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious, clean property. We were very close to restaurants and the grocery store. Our trip to the Disney parks every day was easy with very little traffic. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the parks (Disney Springs and Typhoon Lagoon were the farthest away and took about 35 minutes). I did contact the management company the morning after we got there because the dishwasher was full of water. They came out that afternoon and determined the pump was bad and would need replaced. We stayed for 8 days with no dishwasher which was quite inconvenient because we were busy the whole time. Dawn did send me a message that it would be replaced but it never was during our stay. Other than that little hiccup (things happen) we were extremely pleased with the accomadations, the pool, and the location. We would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle Thank you for taking the time to do a review for us. I was so disappointed that the dish washer broke when you were staying. Tha management company did get a dishwasher but when it was unpacked it was dented and had to be returned. There wasn't another one available and unfortunately we are still waiting. It is very frustrating. I will contact you personally so I can give you something back for this inconvenience. I am pleased you will consider booking with us in the future. I hope you still had a great time. Kind regards Dawn
