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.

Wonderful villa, wonderful trip
About the Owner
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.
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.

Wonderful villa, wonderful trip
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
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
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.
We'll be back!
We’ve just returned from staying at the Villa and wish we were still there, and will definitely be returning in the future now we know the area and all that it has to offer (there’s far too much to do to cram it all into just 2 weeks!). The villa itself is spacious with an open-plan living area and all the home comforts you need (including full air con – essential when its 35 C / 95 F outside!), and is decorated in a contemporary English style (not at all chintzy like some of the other villa’s we looked at). The pool is ideal and family friendly (3ft at shallow end, 6ft at the deep end) and was great for some ‘downtime’ for us to recharge our batteries after busy days at the various theme parks. The location is good too, and is the ‘right’ side of Orlando with easy access to the I4 expressway, Disney, Universal etc (or Clearwater on the gulf coast about an hour in the other direction).
The owner (Mitch) is a pleasure to deal with. He clearly loves the area and freely shares his local knowledge and handy hints and tips in a way that no travel agent ever could – it’s like having your own Orlando expert on hand! Also, being British and living in the UK (like us) it was really easy to pick up the phone and exchange emails with him when booking the villa and also in the run up to going out there. He was also at the end of the email whenever we had any queries whilst out there (despite the time difference).
I’ve already recommended Mitch’s villa to some friends who are planning a trip to Orlando, and look forward to when we can hopefully return in a few years’ time.
Many thanks Mitch!
Home away from home
This is the PERFECT villa if you are looking for the home away from home feel. Every detail is there from the privacy of the back yard/pool are to the spacious living area. The location is EXCELLENT. Stores, dinning and shopping are all just a few minutes, a few turns and you are on the expressway just minutes from Disney, nothing could be better. The owner is wonderful to work with and very easy to communicate with if I had any questions. He delivered precisely what he had promised and was able to offer suggestions in the are for dinning and activities we could do as a family aside from Disney. Truly a flawless experience from beginning to end for my family. I have and will continue to recommend this location to anyone looking to go on vacation in the Disney area as you are away from all the hustle and bustle of Disney Word itself but still close enough to come "home" in between things when you need a break. My family will definitely be returning for another vacation here. Thanks Mitch, you made this one of the best vacations we have had.
Very nice private villa
We stayed for 12 days, the villa had everything you could wish for, didn't have to pack any beach towels or hangers, freed up space in the case for returning with our bargains.
Handy for the I-4, Disney about 20 minutes, Universal about 30, we liked the premium outlet near Universal best.
Posner Park nearby, good shops, Cinema very comfy, must do J C Penny, it's right at the bottom end, well worth a visit, Disney Princess Dresses 40 dollars, on Disney 69.99, looked the same at J C Penny.
We had the main bedroom, had a great closet, bathroom, and very comfy large bed.
Mitch was very friendly and helpful, any questions were swiftly answered,lots of tips on things to do.
We had a fabulous time at the villa, loved our time there, swimming pool was great having the privacy fence, great place to chill after time at the parks.
Many thanks to Mitch and Lisa for a stress free holiday
From the Owner
“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.”

From the Owner
“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.”
