About the property

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

The villa is situated on a gated community called Sunset Ridge. Surrounded by fragrant orange groves. We are on US27 close to junction 55 of the I4. 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. We offer free high speed internet and unlimited free national & international phone calls.

There are lots of great restaurants in the vicinity along with great shopping and a cinema 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 4th 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 Davenport

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

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.

Brilliant property

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and everything necessary provided. The owners are fantastic at providing tips and tricks and advised many restaurants. The pool was great and the water temperature when heated was very welcoming at the end of a long day. One of the best villas we have stayed in, great location and would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Blimey Jenni.....that was quick!!! I thought/expected that you would write the review when you came home, not whilst still there. Anyway, enjoy your last few days at the villa and have a safe trip home. Good luck with the house move on your return !! Cheers Mitch & Lisa

great villa and owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the villa. It has shops and restaurants close by and was a 20 min drive to Disney. The owner is full of useful advice which is handy if it's your first visit. We even found it useful and we have been a number of times.

We will be booking up once again for next year.

Book this one!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Halloween break and had a great time. I've stayed in hotels and villa's in Florida and this wins hands down. The lay out of the property is great, as you all have your own space and it's a big bonus to be able to have your cater for yourselves if you want a break from eating out (half a stone in 2 weeks put on!) we loved the location and the owner Mitch is brilliant at offering advice around days out that you mightn't normally try, because of his suggestions we went to both Celebration and Winter Gardens which are great towns and a break from the non-stop pace of the theme parks. For eating out you have to try Manny's and Ovation plus there's a great pizza place in the same lot as the Ovation restaurant. So in summary, it's a great base, great villa, great location, great advice from Mitch and you will be shattered after alll the parks, so it can be also a great place to just sit, read, relax and have a beer (or 2) outside. Book now to avoid disappointment!!

Wonderful villa, wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday and this villa was the perfect base, location was great for getting to Disney and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Mitch was really helpful in the build up to our trip and even whilst we were away. We'd been to Florida before but all the guides etc. were really useful. We're hoping to go back to Florida in 2017 and would definitely stay here again.

Great time at Sunset Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday staying at Sunset Ridge. The villa has excellent amenities and is very clean, spacious, modern and also in a perfect location for visiting the parks, Disney is literally 10 minutes drive away.

The pool is private and gets the sun virtually all day and is a god send after a hard day in a park. Highly recommend and we would definitely return. The hosts can't do enough for you to help you enjoy your stay, and gave us some great tips and ideas for activities we wouldn't ordinarily think of doing. Thank you both.

Perfect villa for a relaxing family break

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a first visit to Florida. Lovely villa. Plenty of space for us and the 2 kids, well appointed, quiet area, secluded pool with direct sun most of the day - what more could you want! 5 mins from the Interstate and so very close to all the action without being on top of it. An hour to Kennedy Space Centre and and hour and a half to the Gulf coast. Pretty much any restaurant within 20 mins max and supermarkets etc within 10 mins.

Mitch is a pleasure to deal with - he gave us loads of tips and trip advice and was happy to answer any questions we had. Honestly - we couldn't have had a more relaxing stay. Highly recommended.
