Make a holiday rental home or villa in Sandy Ridge, Florida your home away from home

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.

Things to do on holiday in Sandy Ridge, Florida

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)!

Weather in Sandy Ridge, Florida

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!

Travel to Sandy Ridge, Florida

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.

The beds were very comfortable as was the sofa. We felt secure with the alarm & all of the external doors fitted with sensors so we knew if they were opened. The pool was great a good size & not over looked, we had it heated but it did get a bit too warm towards the end of the 2 weeks! Location of the villa was good with Disney just 15 mins drive, universal bit further out, Shops & take away restaurants only a few minutes drive. Would definitely recommend & use again. Thank you!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We have stayed in villas in ORLANDO area on and off for the previous 25 years, and to be frank they are all `much of a muchness`, all nice and well presented. However, I will say that this is the best we have stayed in. Why? - several reasons - its location on the estate. The villa is situated at the end of a cul -de - sac and is open to a small pond on one side and woodland to the rear with south facing aspect. The neighbour`s property is screened from this villa so there is almost complete privacy in the pool area from adjacent properties. I know that this is an issue for some people and some villa pools can be overlooked by many others - not this one. The villa pool is bigger than others we have had - not massively so, but we could tell the difference. There are 3 double bedrooms, two of which have a shower en suite, and a further bathroom to serve the 3 other bedrooms. The villa was well prepared on arrival - clean with plenty of spare towels and bedding. Sandy Ridge Estate - pretty easy to find from J58 off the I4 - just keep going past Lake Wilson Road and you will find it a couple of miles on the right. If you are arriving at night - then look out for some illuminated `palm trees` at the entrance to the estate. In common with many of these estates (which look almost identical) - there is little, if anywhere to walk to - but there is a small retail estate 5 minutes drive away with a supermarket, bank, takeaways etc. If your purpose is to visit Disney then in my opinion this is fine. Its only a 20 min drive if you take the Lake Wilson Road to the 192 and not the I4 motorway, which is always very busy. It is close enough to visit one park on the morning - go home and return later. It is situated south of Disney and therefore a longer drive to downtown Orlando and the Universal parks. In common with all houses, whether at home or away, we had a couple of minor maintenance issues during our stay but these were dealt with by the owner and the management company extremely quickly. For example the washing machine broke down, once reported, a repair man attended within 2 hours, and discovering that the machine was unrepairable, arranged a new replacement to be delivered the very next day - very impressive. Both the owner (British) and the management company were easily contactable and responsive to any issues. I would certainly stay here again.

The property is very well maintained both inside and out and situated in lovely quiet part of Sandy Ridge, Davenport complete with off-street parking. The local supermarket/shopping area is within 5 minutes drive and all Disney Theme Parks can be easily reached from this location. The layout of the villa is superb with a lovely spacious, open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, 2 large en-suite bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, which share the communal bathroom. The cleanliness and furnishings throughout the villa are of a very high standard and the kitchen is fully equipped. There is also an indoor games area for children to play in. Outside the pool area is clean, secure and safe for young children. This area gets the sun from early morning to late afternoon and the fully enclosed insect screen ensures all bugs are excluded. There are very comfortable sun loungers for relaxing by the pool. From the minute we walked into this villa we had a “feel good factor” and this remained with us throughout our stay. We have no hesitation in marking this accommodation 5 out of 5 and recommend this villa to those who would like a “home from home” experience in Florida. We are already planning our next trip to this villa.
