Fantastic villa, 12 mins to Disney with private pool, wi-fi, games room, 48" TV



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Villa in Sandy Ridge, Davenport, Orlando, Florida, USA - Peaceful Location, Close To The Theme Parks And Several Golf Courses

Our villa is situated on Sandy Ridge, a well-kept and quiet subdivision close to Champions Gate Golf Resort and only 5 mins from Interstate I4, Orlando's main artery which links all the major Theme Parks and International Drive. Disney is only 12 mins away, and a Publix supermarket is conveniently located a few minutes up the road, along with local restaurants shops and fast food outlets. 5 minutes away are the shops and restaurants at Champions Gate, while15 mins away is the mall at Posner Park, with a further wide range of shopping and dining. We have a small lake to the rear of the villa where wildlife such as Herons and Sandhill Cranes can often be seen. Amenities at the villa itself include a large pool overlooking the lake, with an unobstructed view of the typical Floridian woodland beyond, a comfortably furnished Games Room (much better that many 'games rooms' you see advertised, which are in effect a cheap pool table in a bare garage) a 48" TV in the living area plus a Blu-Ray player, with a Cable TV package that includes live Premiership Football and Grand Prix racing in season. All bedrooms are also equipped with TVs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the villa for a week . I must say it is exactly as pictured ..Brian was quick to answer all questions . Overall our vacation was great. Donna M, Maine.

We've had an amazing time and I can honestly say your villa is by far the best I've stayed in in eight previous stays.

Thanks again. Scott N., UK

Thanks again for the great time we had all of us. For us it was a more than perfect stay. The pool was great, and we really loved the games room how it was decorated. We hope to be back soon. Harrie B., Netherlands

Just to let you know your villa is lovely and we are really enjoying our stay. Its very quiet and relaxing here, just what we needed. Alan R., UK

This villa was ideal for our family, Brian was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with from the start. The safety gate for the pool gave us added piece of mind with our 21 month old daughter running around. We were also provided with a high chair and stroller which all come in handy when trying to cut down luggage. The rooms are very spacious and the pool gets the sunshine most of the day. It's very handy as your only 15-20 mins away from the disney parks. Your also only a 5 mins drive away from a Publix and also McDonalds or Dunkin Donuts and 7 store for convienience. Theres a small playpark 2 mins away from the villa our daughter loved. It became a home from home for us and we were very happy with our stay with as ever the only disappointment being looking at the villa in the rear view mirror as you leave it for the last time to come home.

Just a quick note to say thanks for a perfect holiday. The location was quiet, the surroundings spectacular, yet so close to the interstate the theme parks were minutes away. Ideal for Busch Gardens also. The villa is superb, clean and well maintained, nice large pool deck, and the kids spent so much time playing pool in the games room we hardly saw them. A family holiday and we got to spend quality time together as the kids were occupied. Premier League football and Formula 1 on the tv as well, that puts it beyond perfect. Thanks for the tips on getting the best out of Florida, better than I've seen in any guide. I'll be leaving your address on my ESTA for when I visit again. Thanks once again.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The villa is very well placed for getting quickly to the parks and shops, and is in a lovely location, not overlooked, and with plenty of room for the kids to play outside, or by the pool or the extra games room. Everything we could have needed was provided, we only wish our own home was kitted out as well as this! We'd recommend this villa to anyone, many thanks!

We stayed in this property during July/August 2014 for three weeks. We have stayed at various properties on Sandy Ridge over the past six years and I am sorry to say this is the worse we have stayed in.

On our arrival the pool area was extremely dirty. We spent the first day of our holiday hosing it down so it felt comfortable enough to sit in. We did inform the owner and to be fair he contacted the management team who promptly ensured the pool area was cleaned. However it was not cleaned again during our stay even though the rain had caused a further build up of dirt at the sides.

I also had to spend my first day vacuuming the downstairs and stairs carpet as again it did not appear to have been cleaned very well. The downstairs carpet is badly stained and the walls marked and in need of painting.

There was only one hairdryer provided for the four bed roomed villa. All other properties we have stayed in have provided at least two and usually one for each bedroom. This hairdryer broke during our stay I therefore contacted the management company who sounded very disinterested but stated they would buy another one, this was never provided.

There were no towels provided for use at the beach or water parks all other properties have provided them for their guests.

On our arrival there was only hand soap for the downstairs toilet. I appreciate this is a self catering property but for hygiene purposes a small complimentary bar of soap should have been provided. Again this has been the case in other villas we have stayed in.

I did contact the owner on our return and made him aware of the above issues. He thanked me for the update but at no point during our communication apologised for the inconvenience and disappointment in or stay

Owner's Response: I'm very disappointed you did not enjoy your stay. Our villa is equipped to a very high standard, and we take special care to make sure all the facilities are listed correctly on the advert. We would stress that any guest (at any villa) should take care to ask if they require anything that is not listed, rather than assume that it will be provided. It's unfortunate the storms at the time of your stay washed sand onto the pool deck, but I don't imagine most guests would expect the pool company to come round and sweep up every time it rained! I am confident the positive comments and compliments I receive from most guests more accurately reflect the standard of our villa.
