|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Welcome to our awesome, just remodeled and upgraded home close to Disneyworld in Orlando! The home is professionally managed locally. Enjoy this beautiful 5br 3ba private home in the Sandy Ridge area with an awesome pool. You can also enjoy your very own Jacuzzi. The south facing pool area overlooks the nature in the surrounding area, so you have no pools right across. The large pool has a nice spa with bubbles, and may be heated in the winter months. The patio has a partly covered lanai if you wish to seek shadow, and on extra warm days you may start the ceiling fan. You also have a security fence, if needed, for use when children present. The whole terrace and pool area are covered with a screen for additional comfort and ease of care. There is a game room in the garage with a nice Ping-Pong table for those wishing to play table tennis.
This is a newly renovated and nicely upgraded home in the best part of the complex, with no neighbors behind and beautiful view of the woods and the colorful Florida sunsets. The home is one story, with easy access and beautiful tile in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as the living room/dining room area. It is located on a cul-de-sac, very close to an idyllic pond. This home is in a very peaceful setting, yet has easy access to theme parks and other attractions.
The unit has TV in all rooms and free online access, as well as bedding, towels, flatware, glasses and cutlery.
IMPORTANT: This property is professionally managed by a local, high-quality company. This means that if there are any issues, you have somebody there to help you right away.
The master bedroom is beautifully decorated with pool view and a nice King bed as well as direct access to a nice private bathroom and a large walk-in closet. Two other nicely decorated bedrooms have Queen beds. One has its own bathroom. The boys and girls will love to have Mickey and Minnie watch over them when they go to bed after another busy day in our nice vacation Paradise! If they prefer SpongeBob, one of the other rooms has two twin beds, sporting SpongeBob decor. The third bathroom is easily accessible from the pool area as well as the other bedrooms. In addition, the large sofa in the living room easily converts to another double bed. Our home also has a crib and a high chair if you bring babies or toddlers along.
Welcome, and enjoy! Please contact us immediately to book this beautiful home for your next vacation! We average one request per day, so please do not hesitate to send your request.
Did you know that every year, more than 50 million people choose Florida as their vacation destination, and that most choose Orlando? Most visitors return again and again.
Orlando is referred to as 'The Entertainment Capital of the World'! Every year, millions of people arrive here to experience this unique fantasy world. In addition to amusement parks like Universal Studios, Island of Adventure, Sea World and Walt Disney World, there are many other parks and attractions, great shopping and all kinds of restaurants. Here you will be entertained 24/7. Orlando is very family friendly, and everything is organized so both children and adults will have an unforgettable vacation.
Walt Disney Theme Parks
Walt Disney in Orlando consists of four main parks as well as two water parks, Downtown Disney with Pleasure Island and a Sports Complex. The home is located 10-15 minutes' drive from the main park!
Universal Studios and Island of Adventure
These are the movie parks in Orlando. These two parks are located next to each other, with the world's largest Hard Rock Cafe in between. Here you can experience the spectacular rollercoaster 'The Incredible Hulk', where you are shot out and into a twist. Or what about a visit 'Back to the Future'? Maybe a 3D experience with Shrek and his friends is of interest?
Sea World is a certain family's favorite. You can move between fantastic animal shows at a comfortable pace. Grab the opportunity to see dolphins, sharks and killer whales up close. Do not miss 'Kraken', den tallest, longest and fastest rollercoaster in Orlando.
The brand new LegoLand is a short drive south of Sandy Ridge. It has lots of fun adventures for the younger set, and is well worth a visit.
Wet'n Wild Water Park
This is a large water park, located by International Drive, with activities for the entire family. Here you can enjoy everything from challenging water slides with free falls, water tunnels, water spirals and wave pool, to separate pools and activities for children. There is also a sandy beach, beach volleyball court, many eateries and an arcade.
Gatorland is a one-of-a-kind, protected habitat for man and beast where adventures lurk around every corner! Internationally known as the Alligator Capital of the World, Gatorland's 110-acre theme park and nature conservatory is located in Central Florida at the head of the Florida Everglades. Once you have experienced Gatorland, it will be hard to believe that it began in 1949 as a roadside attraction!
Busch Gardens is an amusement park for the entire family. In addition to stomach-churning rollercoasters, you can here meet animals such as giraffes and lions. This beautiful park is definitely worth a visit. Try Sheikra, a new attraction where you're hanging upside-down for five seconds before you fall 90 degrees straight down.
At Discovery Cove you can swim with dolphins. You'll find an artificial beach, great snorkeling opportunities and a waterfall among the park's many attractions. In addition to swimming with dolphins and mantas, you can snorkel with tropical fish, and experience sharks almost too close for comfort.
Kissimmee Old Town
Kissimmee Old Town is THE destination for all who are interested in motor bikes and old cars. Every Saturday night there is a parade with big, old American cars. There is also a circus, rodeo, bungee jumping, human cannon balls, racing track, etc. On stage, they play hits from the 50's and 60's, and there is line dancing. The place has lots of specialty stores and bars you cannot find anywhere else.
Kennedy Space Center
About one hour drive east of Orlando you'll find Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. Here you can experience various aspects of American space flight in sound and pictures. If you are lucky you might even experience a rocket launch!
From Daytona International Speedway to the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse, there's plenty to do and places to see in the Daytona Beach area. Be sure to bring your camera and sunscreen! You can even drive your car on the beach just like early land speed record holders did. Daytona Beach is called “The World’s Most Famous Beach”. It is the Mecca for all car racing and has hosted about 80 years of motorsport events. I 1931 Sir Malcolm Campbell in his Bluebird set a new land speed record of 245 m.p.h. at Daytona which he improved several times, pushing past 300 m.p.h. in 1935. Today, Daytona 500 is considered NASCARs’ most important race, drawing millions to Florida or to the TV screens in February each year.
Richard Petty Driving Experience
Do you love speed and excitement? This is your destination! Here you can drive (or be a passenger in) a real American Stock Car on a track. The location is Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando, and you will be driving Nascar Style Stock Cars with about 600 horsepower. What an experience!
Orlando is a Mecca for golfers, with more than 300 golf courses in the area. The tropical climate makes golfing a fantastic experience year round.
Orlando is also a Mecca for shopaholics, and of special interest are the large factory outlets with incredible discounts on famous brands such as Nike, Calvin Klein, Timberland, Reebook, Donna Karan, etc. Belz Factory Outlet Mall is one of the largest outlets, located at the end of International Drive.
Be entertained by professional musicians and actors while you eat dinner. MurderWatch® takes place every Saturday at Baskerville Restaurant at Hotel Grosvenor. A very realistic murder mystery is created, and you can help solve the evening's crime. Other dinner shows include Arabian Nights, Medieval Times, WonderWorks Dinner Show, etc.
See all Orlando's attractions from the air! A helicopter ride is without doubt the best way to experience Orlando. Choose among several rides.
Our family is originally from Norway, but have lived in the US for almost 20 years. We love the warm climate, the pool and all the area attractions, and do not miss the snow :)
Mona Engvig purchased this house in 2012
We fell in love with this home the minute we walked into it for the very first time. We were already familiar with the area, but always dreamed about our own home with a pool. We love the layout with an awesome flow and beautiful Tommy Bahama furniture. Since we bought this home, we have added our personal touches, and hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
This beautiful family pool home is close to Disney, but still located in a very quiet area surrounded by nature. The Sandy Ridge development is very well managed and maintained. The home is located in the best part of the development, with southern pool exposure, privacy, cul-de-sac location and an idyllic pond almost next door.
We would like to share some of the many comments from our guest book. Every time we come we truly enjoy the messages from our guests!
Olaf and Mona
We had a blast, especially the kids! All I can say is Thank You for a memorable holiday. For sure we will be coming back!
Someone once said that a day without laughter is a day wasted. I can say we didn't waste a day in your wonderful house. Thanks so much for letting us enjoy our vacation here!
Dear Mona and Olaf.
Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home! It made great memories with my little ones. This place was easy access to all parks. We almost didn't want to leave. Thank you for making things so easy for us when we wanted to extend our stay. It has been a wonderful time here.
Your home is so beautiful! I will love to come back next year. We love the pool!
We enjoyed your beautiful vacation home. Would love to come back. We enjoyed the pool a lot! We cooked many meals in your kitchen which had everything we needed except a rice cooker but we bought our own! We felt at home. Thank you!
Fabulous place, comfortable for a family of ten. Looking forward to our next trip!
Fantastic ! ! ! !
All of us just loved it ! ! !
We arrived in the dark after midnight, it was easy to find with help of our "ALMA" (GPS)
So nice to go to sleep in beautiful, delicate beds after a long flight from Norway.
Morning, day and night swim in the gorgeous pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi and sunbathing by the pool.
Since we were three couples we very much appreciated the privat bath in our bedrooms and also the washer and drier in the garage.
Lots of things to do not far away. We enjoied Swamptour in Kissimmee. Kennedy Space Center. Our drive down to Key West. Miami. Coffe and Waffels at the Norwegian Seamen's Church in Davie. Swimming in the Gulf of Mexico at St. Petersburg and shopping at the Outlets.
Thank you for our FANTASTIC stay at your vacation home, we vill surely recommend this villa to famililes and friends all over the world.
Tusen Takk Mona & Olaf
It is seldom that one gets exactly what is advertised in a rental property. In this case, the product meets or exceeds those expectations.
From the time you open the front door, you realize that you are in someone's ""home", filled with thoughtful personal touches and little things that separate this house from a "typical rental". The kitchen is loaded with special gadgets/accessories to make your stay more fun. The living area is equipped with sensible but comfortable furniture. The bedrooms are designed for a variety of personalities.
For us, the rear pool area was the highlight. Unlike many places, this pool is bordered on the back by a forested area for total privacy and beauty. In addition, the side screens on the enclosure have opaque privacy vinyl over the screen to isolate you from your next door neighbours. You may hear them but not see them .. Bliss!
The final value is the quality of service and involvement in the rental process by Mona, the owner. She is the "real deal" and truly cares that her guests have a memorable and happy stay. The home is clean and fresh .. You can count on it.
We will be back ... Thanks, Mona!
Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
Good morning Katie
Sent a long message yesterday & just discovered it was never "delivered"! I know there is some button to hit to "try" again, but don't know what it is. LOL
Just wanted to know how things were going. If I remember, you have a doctor's appt. today. If. convenient, I'll call tonight for a chat to catch up.
We walked into the home and our first impression was very clean,warm and we immediately felt like it was home
We love the privacy around the pool and hot tub area.
It has everything you need, shopping and attractions are very close by. We certainly plan on coming again.
We highly recommend this home
Mona can't do enough for u to make your visit 200% satisfied
What a beautiful home! Thank you for everything we needed for a family vacation. It was the perfect size for our family. The grand kids loved the themed rooms and the pool. We can't say enough great things and hope for a return trip soon!
Beautiful home, just as described. Located just minutes from Disney parks, just as described.
Mona was super helpful and very professional, answered my phone calls at all times.
Would highly recommend this house to families traveling with children. Very spacious and clean. Located near by restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, and a pharmacy.
My family had a blast and we really enjoyed the pool. Thank you Mona for sharing your property with us. I am sure we will book with you again next year. Thank you, Mona for making this experience so easy and pleasant.
My family and I stayed here for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the house and it's location. The pool is very private yet has sun all day; absolutely perfect for younger children. One small item, which needed to be dealt with, was fixed within a couple hours after just one email. The owners of this house are very professional, courteous, and legitimately want you to have a great time. We would definately recomend this house for anyone looking to enjoy the Orlando area!
This comfortable home is located in Sandy Ridge, Davenport, and is minutes away from all the major attractions including Disney.
Spend your vacation in this beautifully spacious home with the open floorplan. It features 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
This home will accommodate up to 12 people very comfortably.
The pool deck is very private with no homes overlooking the rear of the deck! The sun lounges are waiting for you!
Come and enjoy this home away from home!!
