Stephen Perkins purchased this villa in 2012
Having gone to Orlando with the family on a couple of occasions we not only enjoyed the parks, but realised there was so much more with the good weather, golf courses etc.
In 2008 we decided to buy a property in Orlando and fell in love with a great villa which we felt was so well designed for rental.
This fell through and in 2011 we found that there was a piece of land next to the villa and had even better views with 2 lakes and well positioned with golf course frontage, good sun and great sunsets.
We decided to buy the land and build the villa based on next door by with some minor changes to make it better for us and our renters.
Has great views of the golf course with lakes both to right and left of the villa. The pool is large at 30+ft and has areas where you can sit down in the pool and relax as well as sufficient length so you can swim. The spa can be heated and provide as great position to watch the sunset. We have a larger than normal Lanai which means that even when it is raining you can still sit outside and it also provides a small outside area where,where needed, you can escape from the hot sun.
The inside is large, you have the feeling of so much freedom, there are two different style lounges, the quiet one and the family one.
The main bedroom has so much space with a large bed looking straight out to the pool and a spacious en-suite with a walk in shower.
The reviews we get are so pleasing that it is clear these features are appreciated
We have just returned home from a fabulous 2 weeks in your wonderful villa! We can't tell you how happy we've been & it really is a beautiful place which fulfilled all our expectations & more! As you can imagine with 2 young boys we have been theme parked out but to return to relax there was such a bonus? We even managed 2 full days to relax by the pool at the boys' instigation as they loved it so much!
The area is really lovely & the entertainment from & with the golfers was awesome!
We found the villa to be exactly as advertised, everyone was really impressed when we arrived. This was also our opinion when leaving too. The layout within the villa is perfect, affording plenty of privacy if a few people are sharing. The quality of furnishings and utensil's are well above average. This was our first stay on Ridge-wood Lakes and it was unanimous that we would all be more than happy to return again. The owner was really helpful throughout, security deposit returned promptly and also on the date stated. The pool area has plenty of room and a really lovely outlook, over the golf course. The only negative found was if needing to contact the management company out of hours, we actually had to ring a call centre. This was upon arrival and it would have been far easier if we could have rang a local management company directly. We have had many villa holidays but this is the first time we had to use this route of communications. Once the central number contacted the local management they were very efficient and dealt with our enquiry really fast. This did not spoil our experience at the villa nor would put any of us staying again. It did lead to an unexpected mobile bill due to using our mobile's from home. Overall we would still highly recommend booking it was perfect. Thanks to Stephen and his family for allowing us to share his home with the for a short time.
Great place to stay this community is quiet but has all the amenities close by,
Would I stay here again certinely would
Was here with my wife and 3 boys plenty to keep boys entertained, especially when hurricane Mathew was on its way cable tv was great got live uk football.
Thanks to the owners great communication with them from the start and management company were always on the end of the telephone or email not that I required them often.
Thanks For A Great Vacation.
Have to say this was by far the best villa we have been to in Florida.modern,clean,well equipped and very spacious,it definitely ticked all the boxes.the pool area was beautiful,relaxing and so peaceful on the days we decided not to go anywhere.location wise,it is perfect.only a 5 min drive to the nearest supermarket and about 10 mins to Champions Gate if you want to go out for a meal without going too far.there is also a few places if you head south on hwy27 to Haines City. The location is also very good for the Disney Parks,only about a 15 min drive,and approx 25mins to Universal..Overall,a fantastic place to stay.
We have just returned from a lovely 2 weeks in Florida - staying here. The villa is amazing - very spacious and with everything you will need for a fabulous holiday. Many happy hours were spent by the children in the pool as the grown ups lazed round the edge, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the golf course (which was never really busy). Location is perfect - close to attractions, but far enough away to allow rest and relaxation. Would highly recommend and hope to return in a few years.
We had two weeks in this villa and it was brilliant! Lovely location, backing on to the golf course and really peaceful.
Villa has loads of space with great sized bedrooms and excellent open kitchen and living area!
The pool is brilliant, really big, lots of space to chill out on the sun beds and a relaxing spa to go with it!
We will no doubt recommend this villa to family and friends and hope to stay again one day!
Thank you for letting us stay in your villa!
Matt and Family
We stayed for 2 weeks at the end of June 2016 in this wonderful property with our 2 daughters & 2 grandsons aged 7 & 9 for a holiday we had been promising for a number of years & we weren't disappointed! Everything the website promises about this villa is correct & really the photos don't do it justice? The pool area is particularly stunning with a pool which suited everyone both for swimming & playing & the boys loved the fact that most rooms had doors leading to both the terrace & the pool which gave them total freedom. The villa itself is set in a beautiful, peaceful Golf complex which was extremely welcome after visiting the parks most days. The views from the pool area over the fairways are lovely & even though we don't play golf the occasional interaction with the golfers was very interesting without ever disturbing us.
The villa is immaculate & beautifully furnished with everything you need for a holiday. There is a great feeling of space for everyone to "do their own thing" if they need to as well as the sociable outside area'
Stephen the owner was extremely helpful during the booking process & kept us informed along with offering helpful information about both the villa & the planning of an Orlando holiday.
The travelling time to Disney was just 25 minutes & extremely easy even taking the notoriously busy I4 into consideration. There are supermarkets & restaurants within 10 minutes drive although we didn't eat out much in the evenings as relaxing outside at the villa with a few glasses of wine & a BBQ appealed to us all most of the time after the exhausting days?!
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone thinking of going to Orlando as it has everything you could wish for & hopefully we will return in the near future.

The villa is midway on hole 4, Stroke Index 1 of the Ridgewood Lakes Golf Course. This is a magnificent course with open spaces but also plenty of water to challenge. The course is open and has buggies. When built it was considered the best new build in Orlando and now it is considered amongst one of the top 30 throughout Florida. Whilst this will be your home course there are many local course around including.
Greg Norman's Champions Gate (2 courses). Next exit on I4
Southern Dunes, (further along the 27)
Reunion (3 courses) further up the I4
Highlands Reserve further along the 27
and many more including classic Disney Courses and also Marriott hotel courses.
Very few courses in Orlando have permission for rental villas
How to get there
The Villa is approx 30-40 minutes dive down interstate/major roads from Orlando International Airport and a little further from Sanford. Car hire is essential but driving is easy. You will be provided with access conditions to the villa so you can get immediate access without the need of picking up keys or going to the management company.
Supermarket 1 mile for community entrance. I4, Family restaurants and Shopping mall 2 miles. Disney world within 15 minutes.
