About the property

Near Walt Disney World, Sea World and other theme parks, near golf resorts

This 2-storied villa, which sits on one of the largest lots of the community, underwent a total make over when we bought it in 2008. It has totally been refurbished into a beautiful furnished high quality home. In the Fall of 2014 we put in new carpet, we repainted all the bathrooms, pooldeck and driveway to give it a whole new look again. You can sit and relax on the leather couch while enjoying a movie on the 32 inch TV or surf the WIFI high-speed internet which is available.

When all this is not enough, out in the back your own private (heated) screened-pool is waiting for you. The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook, stove, microwave, oven, fridge, dishwasher and all utensils you may expect, attached is a separate utility room with washer and dryer. Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms: A kingsize en-suite master bedroom and a queen-size en-suite master bedroom both that have a 26'LCD TV. The family sized bathroom will be shared by two twin bedrooms, both with two twin beds each. Outside there is ample parking.

For the kids:: When you bring children there is a WII available.

Safety issues: All rooms are provided with smoke-alarm detectors. The sliding-door has a safety lock, out of reach for small children. The pool is provided with a safety-fence. 2 Fire-extinguishers (up- and downstairs). 2 Phones (up- and downstairs).

Why Bram and Sylvia van der Laan chose Sandy Ridge

We purchased this villa in the summer of 2008 and totally refurbished it. We were looking for something near the Disney-area and this was exactly what we were looking for. Having lived here we exactly knew what we were looking for and in which area. Having all the attractions in the nearby area, Disney is only 10 minutes away, as well as many well-known golfcourses is what we wanted.

What makes this villa unique

Only 10 minutes from all the amusement parks, Walt Disney World, Sea World, UniversalStudios and Legoland is indescribable. Yet home and enjoying the pool within the picturesque and exclusive community of Sandy Ridge is so wonderfull and peaceful.

Very Displeased !!

  • 1 of 5

The house is big, comfortable and the spaces as described, however we had a bad experience with the house. When we arrived the house was hot, the AC thermostat was set at 84 and we wanted to lower the temperature. Unfortunately, that is the lowest it will go in the cool setting. The property manager was contacted. He was claiming that it is probably set at the heat setting, but it was not that the problem. We sent a picture but he interrupted the conversation and then he isnt answering the phonecalls. We stayed 3 days without air conditioning. The lock of the house was given problem either to lock or unlock since first night. Its sounds like it was trying to turn but it returned back to initial position without opening the lock. Early Monday morning I dropped my daughter to the airport and I could not enter into the house. I had to go to the back of the house and called my son aloud (my cell phone had no reception either and the phone of the house was not working, either). There are equipment that is not functioning such as phone of the house and the icemaker. The closet of one of the twin bed room is locked- so there is not possibility to put any clothes inside it. The fan in the rooms were full of dust. We were unable to use them because they were throwing dust all over. Some of us got sick. I cleaned two of the fans so we can use them. There are other areas with dust around the house. The pool was dirty, we could not use it. The toilet of the Queen bed room was clogged. Manager fix the AC thermostat on Monday, but after this, I noticed that the second floor is hot, the AC is not enough for the second floor. The manager, attitude is rude and I felt that he did not have the ownership to accept and resolve the situation that I was complaining. He tried to put the blame on my side or letting me know that I did the things incorrectly. His response for my complaints (dust, pool, equipment, toilet) was to let me know that this kind of situations are entire responsibility of the Owner of the house, not his, that I should contact the Owner, instead. We showed him the manual where it is said that he is the person to contact in case of situation with the house. He argued that he is there for emergencies, only. Our vacation was mess up, we could not enjoy what we had paid. I wrote emails to the owner during our stay without any response from his part. When I arrived home I contacted him again, but he denied to return some money back. Hope Homeaway helps

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property for a large family group. It is in an ideal location for Disney and a very nice neighbourhood. The owner and his property manager were very helpful before and during our stay. We would stay there again.

This villa is located within the picturesque and exclusive community of Sandy Ridge, 10 minutes from the heart of Walt Disney World and within easy reach of other major theme parks and attractions. This wonderful location is regarded as the premier place to stay when in Orlando. Only 5 minutes from I-4 and Championsgate.

Within 2 miles you will find 2 of the worlds best golf courses, one at Championsgate and the other being the exclusive Reunion resort.

Golf: ChampionsGate Golf Club features two premier 18-hole championship golf courses designed by accomplished architect and golfer, Greg Norman. (Toll Free: (888) 558-9301). Mystic Dunes. The name sounds peaceful enough with the veneer of a tranquil, safe harbour, but lying in wait, ready to pounce, there is that not so serene side to this 18 hole journey. A side that keeps you on the edge, at the verge of surrender, but not willing to forgo the emotional peaks and valleys of the challenge that lies ahead. (Toll Free: (866) 311-1234). Celebrating golf at every level, Celebration Golf Club is an acclaimed venue for promoting the love of the game to future champions as well as to the established golfer, and is listed as one of PGA Magazine's Junior Friendly courses. (Toll Free: (888) 275-2918). The 18-hole 'Lake Buena Vista' course at the Walt Disney World Golf Courses facility in Kissimmee, Florida features 6,819 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72.
