Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Sandy Ridge - Penguin Retreat

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Located minutes from Disney, in a scenic conservation area, our home offers privacy and fun! The high quality fixtures and fittings makes this villa your perfect home away from home. Penguin Retreat has its own private pool and hot tub, and a fabulous deck for soaking up the Floridian sun. The villa offers a fully covered Lanai, great for enjoying a family meal, or simply sipping a glass of bubbly at the end of a busy day.

The rooms are custom designed for your comfort and enchantment. Our themed bedrooms are one-of-a-kind, designed to provide hours of wonder and years of memories! The Master bedrooms have all the features you need; comfortable beds by Beautyrest, en-suite bath and quality decor.

The villa backs onto a conservation area. No rear neighbors, only the natural beauty of Florida, and the occasional egret. You and your family will never forget your stay at Penguin Retreat; the beautiful villa, fantastic unspoiled views and the wonders of Disney will guarantee this.

Only 14 minutes to Disney! You can take the back road or hop on the I-4 to all the major attractions. As previous guests have said, you are close to all the attractions of Disney, but away from the hustle and bustle of the City.

About Marianne Evans

My husband (John) and I have three very active sons. We moved from Wales, UK to the US in 2010, and now call Alabama home. I am looking forward to sharing our beautiful Floridian home with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, however small, I want to make your stay as easy and relaxing as possible.

Marianne Evans purchased this house in 2015

Why Marianne Evans chose Davenport

We recently purchased this property after spending several fabulous family vacations in Orlando. This area is convenient for Disney, Golf and also not too far from some beautiful beaches both on the east and west coast of Florida. With year round sunshine you can't go wrong. The development is located in a conservation area which means you are only overlooked by the beautiful Florida countryside. We are minutes to Disney without meeting the high traffic areas. There is a direct road that takes you 1/2 mile from Disney World Drive, the entrance to Disney World.

What makes this house unique

We have very high standards and this villa ticked all the boxes! It boasts a beautiful, private outdoor living space, custom décor, games room, and open plan living. The ambience of this home is second to none.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a great place to stay. My family had a lot of fun and enjoyed this home. We can not wait to go back. The house was amazing and the decorated rooms were a huge hit with my children.It was very clean and well maintained. We saw lots of birds in the area and the neighborhood was quiet. We also had an emergency and the hospital in the area was amazing with my special medical needs child. I will strongly suggest this home to friends and the many parents that I associate with that have children with medical needs.

Fantastic Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at Penguin Retreat! The villa is magical, my kiddos loved the themed bedrooms. They are truly magical and set this home apart from other rental properties. Marianne was great to work with as were her property managers. We will definitely return and recommend to family and friends.

I LOVE THIS HOUSE!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a fairy tale of a house. The pictures are perfect. The pool lights were out making it hard to swim at night and the air went out while we were there, but the house is too cute. My kids just wanted to stay and swim instead of going to theme parks!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy that you and your family loved our home. I'm also thrilled that we played a part in creating such magical memories for your kiddos. I am, however, very disappointed that you encountered those unforeseen technical issues. I strive to make everyone's stay at our home perfect. Thank you for choosing Penguin Retreat and we hope to see you again soon. °o°

Amazing Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Sharon was a wonderful person to work with (even with the bank issue we had!). We appreciated their quick response and the house was wonderful! We are already looking forward to our return to just chill out as the kids enjoyed staying at the pool rather than going to the parks (even asking at times to leave Disney to go back to swim). The area was really quiet and very little noise (outside of the normal). Everything was as described and plenty of towels etc. Thank you for a truly enjoyable relaxing stay!

A very nice house. The interior is well maintained and appointed. The pool was a nice temperature but the hot tub was not as clean as we expected. I didn't contact the property manager about this because we didn't try to use it until our last evening. I did contact them about two other small issues and they were quickly resolved. I would recommend this house to a friend. The location was nice. 20 minutes from Disney and close to a grocery store. The neighborhood was quite and people seemed to keep to themselves. My kids lived the themed rooms. That was the selling point for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It melts my heart when I hear how much enjoyment the kiddos get from the themed bedrooms. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed our home. However, I'm sorry that the hot tub cleanliness wasn't to our usual high standard. The hot tub and pool are professionally cleaned weekly. I have spoken to our property manager and set in place new procedures to prevent this occurring again. Thank you for recommending our home to your friends, and we look forward to seeing you back at Penguin Retreat soon °o°.
