The Sandy Ridge community has a fantastically rustic feel, despite being just 10 minutes by car from Florida’s most famous attraction; Walt Disney World. There are few housing communities with such good access to Orlando’s attractions that have managed to maintain such a remote, unspoilt atmosphere, and when combined with Florida’s stunning climate, it is clear that a Sandy Ridge villa is an ideal option for any Floridian holiday.
It is hard to know where to start with things to do from a self catering Sandy Ridge villa. Private accommodation provides visitors with unlimited freedom and flexibility to explore everything from the famous theme parks of Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and Wet n’Wild to the shops of Orlando city centre, from the fairways of the Champions’ Gate golf course to the white sand of Florida’s Atlantic beaches.
You can be enjoying a drink by your private pool within just 10 minutes of leaving the front gates of the Disney World resort, allowing you to nip in and out of the park as the mood takes you throughout your holiday. The park actually consists of four completely separate theme parks, appealing to almost every desire and whim you may have from hurtling along a roller coaster in Magic Kingdom to swimming with dolphins at Sea World, and from the discovery of famous film sets in Universal Studios to riding the rapids in the refreshingly cool waters of Wet n’Wild. The famous Busch Gardens can also be reached in well under an hour from a Sandy Ridge villa too.
Although there are more golf courses in the surrounding area than you could possibly enjoy during a single holiday, the best in the whole region is located right on your front door. Less than two minutes from the community entrance is the world famous Champions’ Gate Golf Club, which is open to the public and amazingly quiet for the vast majority of the year. Getting a round is straight forward, meaning golfers are perfectly catered for if the lure of the Disney magic is not enough to stop you thinking of greens and bunkers during your trip!
The Orlando area of Florida is packed with entertainment possibilities. Orlando has a huge range of shops, restaurants and attractions within the city itself, and the surrounding countryside is filled with walking, riding and cycling paths to try. The beaches of the Floridian coast are never more than an hour away either, which can have staggering appeal as summer temperatures reach the mid 30’s (˚C)!
Florida’s climate is exceptional. Even during the coldest months, warm jackets are redundant, as monthly average temperatures remain above 21˚C in January. During the warmest months, (July and August), temperatures are wonderfully warm without getting unbearably hot, averaging around 31˚C for the month. Due to these conditions, you can fit a huge amount into your day, finally returning to your Sandy Ridge villa in the evening for a meal outside beside your own private pool!
Orlando International Airport (MCO) is within very easy reach of a Sandy Ridge holiday rental. There are numerous car hire companies located at the airport, and if you are going to enjoy all there is to offer in the region, renting a hire car is a really good idea.
