About the property

Villa in Sunset Ridge, Davenport, Orlando, Florida, USA - Great Location !!!!!!!!!!!

Close to all the action of the theme parks, near restaurants, shops and great golf courses. The Atlantic coast is a 45 minute drive and the beautiful Gulf Coast is an hour away.

There are lots of great restaurants in the vicinity along with great shopping, dining and a cinema complex at Posner Park which is just over the road from Sunset Ridge.

About Mitch Ford

My name is Mitch. I live in the UK, Salford to be precise. I am married to Lisa, with a son called Jake and a daughter called Tegan. I am a SAP / Success Factors consultant (Computer geek) and my wife is a Bank Manager. We love Florida and have been visiting for many many years. We love it so much, we bought a property there.

We adore spending time in the villa, it is a great place to relax and spend time with the family. Chill out by the pool, visit the theme parks and shop til you drop!

Many of our guests have chosen to return which must be a testament to the quality of the villa. In fact, we have just recently had a guest complete their 5th visit to the villa. They treat it as their second home, which is fantastic from my perspective.

Mitch Ford purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mitch Ford chose Sunset Ridge

We bought the property primarily for the location. We wanted to be close to theme parks, shops and restaurants. We are situated on US27 and are around 3 minutes from the I4 junction 55. We can get to Disney in around 14 minutes, Sea World in 20 minutes and Universal & Islands of Adventure in 25/30 minutes. The Atlantic coast is a 45 minute drive with Cocoa Beach being the closest beach, and a great place place to watch space coast launches. The Gulf coast is around an hours drive. We love the Gulf Coast.....the ocean is so warm, on our last trip the temperature was like stepping into a jacuzzi.

What makes this villa unique

When we first stared travelling to Florida, we stayed in hotels which was great. We then started renting villas and once you have done that, it is difficult to go back to a hotel. With a villa, you have your own private pool.

A huge fridge to fill with beer (sorry) food, you can save money by eating at the villa as opposed to having to dine out all the time. We have 4 TVs in different rooms so you can always find your own space, if you want a break from the rest of your party. One of the TV's is a huge 50 inch plasma.

We have a shopping mall over the road called Posner Park, with shops, restaurants and a cinema complex. There are some excellent restaurants in the vicinity, our favourite is 'Manny's Chop House'. Reasonably priced and awesome steaks! We also like Ovation, which is probably the closest restaurant to the villa. It has excellent reviews on Trip Adviser and we usually visit whilst at the villa.

We have had a privacy fence installed at the rear of the property, so the pool area is not over looked by neighbours.

Many of our guests return on an annual basis, so we must be doing something right. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the villa, and ensure it retains its contemporary feel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the villa in December and were so impressed by every aspect. The villa is in a great location, close to the parks and near to shops and restaurants. The villa itself was lovely, with a contemporary feel. Not your typical traditional chintzy floral/flamingo type furnishings. the pool was heated and the kids didn't want to leave.

No disappointments here

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed if you book this villa. The photos are a true likeness and the villa is very clean and well maintained.

Mitch could not do enough for us and regularly contacted us to make sure everything was ok. He was always at the end of the telephone line if we needed him and nothing was ever too much trouble.

The property is well situated only three minutes from the I4! I would definitely recommend this villa to family and friends and hopefully will return sometime in the future.

226 Sigmund Loop Hurricane Adventure

The property was in an ideal location and is very spacious and well laid out. It had all the necessary appliances we look for in a holiday accommodation. The owners we're very helpful and communicated well with us to assist us during Hurricane Irma. Luckily we avoided much impact from the storm. I would recommend this property to any reader

Owner's Response: Thanks Steven & Jacqueline, We were lucky having you as guests during the hurricane, Lisa and I were worried about potential damage, so thanks for the updates. The lanai panels will get replaced in the next week or two, so we are thankful we didn't suffer too much damage. Please look us up again for your next trip. Regards Mitch & Lisa

It was everything we needed and the communication with the owners was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 with 2 teenage sons loved the apartment. The house is spacious and clean and has everything that you need for a holiday. The internet was good and kept the boys happy. Best of all is the communication with the owner Mitch Ford who always answered emails quickly and nothing was too much trouble. He also gave us some great tips on how to get the most out of our holiday. The house is within a gated village which feels very safe. I would definitely recommend the house to anyone.

Another Fantastic Orlando Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Mitch and Lisa home in Orlando, and yet again we had a fantastic time. We are a family of 4, with 2 young children and the villa had everything we needed to compliment all the excitement that Orlando has to offer.

The villa is spacious and airy, with everything you need from a home away from home. The location is a very quiet, gated community, with an every growing number of restaurants and shops on the doorstep.

We've been travelling to Orlando for 15 years now, staying in both hotels and villas. Mitch and Lisa's property is always our first option, both due to the home itself, but also for the fantastic advice and insight that they can offer. If you're a first time visitor to Orlando, or a frequent visitor, Mitch and Lisa will provide you with a great list of idea's to make your holiday even better.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mitch and Lisa's home to everyone, and am already looking forward to our next visit in 2019 once the new Star Wars and Toy Story lands are open at Hollywood Studio's!

Homely rental property

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and won't be our last. The property feels like a home away from home and is very comfortable and spacious. The pool is a big winner for our family and a great way to start or end the day! The house perfectly suits our needs. The location is excellent for local shops (Publix, Walmart etc) and you are only 25 minutes away from the Disney parks. Further afield, the Florida Mall, outlet stores and other local attractions are all less than 1 hour drive. There are a lot of good restaurants in the local area too which makes this property a great base for a holiday in Florida.
