The pool has a child safety fence, and a cot & high chair can be provided. There is also a small children’s playground nearby. The pool is SW facing so gets the afternoon and evening sun.

The villa is in a great location for all of central Florida's main attractions.

Only 15 minute's away from Walt Disney World, and and a short drive from Route 192 and Kissimmee's Old Town - a haven of shops, restaurant and entertainment.

The parks at Disney include Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Wide World of Sports, Sea World, Epcot, Universal Orlando and a great choice of water parks such as Disney's Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Discovery Cove offers the chance to swim with dolphins is a favourite with kids.

The Orlando area offers many more attractions which can be accessed via the I-4 or the H192 include Horse Riding , Boggy Creek Airboat Rides, Titanic: The Exhibition, Central Florida Zoo, Air Boat Rentals, Gatorland, Green Meadows Petting Farm, Hot Air Balloon rides, Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, Holy land Experience, Richard Petty Driving Experience and not to forget the huge shopping malls.

Down town Disney is a great place for dining, shopping and entertainment and there's a huge choice of dinner shows in the Orlando area such as Arabian Nights, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Pirates Dinner Adventure and Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Shows. The Dixie Stampede is an impressive dinner show with incredible horsemen and women.

Universal Studios Florida, Universal Islands of Adventure, Seaworld and International Drive are within 30 minute's drive away.

Space coast (Cocoa Beach, Daytona) and West coast beaches (Clearwater, St Pete's, Tampa) are approximately 1 hour's drive, and are highly recommended if you want a day off from the parks, or for a few days at the end of your holiday.

Notes about Pool and Spa

Pool heating is charged at an additional £115 per week (recommended Oct to April.) Please note the following:

The pool heater heats the water to 85-90 degrees F. The jacuzzi spa is attached the the pool so the water is the same temperature as the pool (it is NOT a steaming 'hot tub' which gets to 100+ degrees F so please be aware of this upon booking.) However, it is still lovely to relax in after a day at the parks!

Please note that the pool heater is not operational at air temperatures of less than 54 degrees F, so if you are visiting in the winter months, and the air temperatures are very low (especially at night), the pool heater may not be able to get to the 85-90 degree temperature during the day, and may therefore be unusable (especially if you have young children) until the air temperature increases. Please bear this in mind before paying for pool heating - it is advisable to check the weather forecast 1 week before travelling, and if required, the pool heating can be paid for and turned on before your arrival. It can take 24-48 hours for the pool heater to reach the 85-90 degrees F temperatures, and the insulated pool cover must be used at all times that the pool is not being used, especially in the winter months.

If pool heating is not booked before arrival, it can be paid for during your stay, but there will be an additional $25 charge made by the management company, and they will not attend out of hours or at the weekend to turn on the heater.

If you have any questions about whether you need the pool heating, it is advisable to contact me in advance to avoid any disappointment. Thank you.

About Laura Shipley

Hi, I run a property rental business with properties in the UK, Florida, Spain and Bulgaria. I've personally chosen all the properties and have chosen the furnishings and decor to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I enjoy visiting this villa when I can - there's always somewhere new to see in Florida, and the villa is a great place to relax in the evenings too.

Laura Shipley purchased this house in 1997

Why Laura Shipley chose Sandy Ridge

It's really close to Disney, yet still in a quiet residential area surrounded by trees and nature. The south-westerly facing pool is perfect for a sunset swim. Kids love the pool and games room - there's plenty to keep them entertained. Sitting on the deck with a g&t after a thrilling day at the parks can't be beaten!

What makes this house unique

My property managers are very reliable and will assist if you have any queries during your stay. I endeavour to respond to all booking / payment queries within a couple of hours (UK time zone.)

I hope to hear from you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a wonderful two weeks at this villa over Christmas and New Year and couldn't have asked for a nicer home. The furnishings are comfortable and everything is provided to make your stay easy. We loved spending Christmas Day on the terrace and in the pool, then enjoyed the New Year celebrations at Disney - their fireworks are the best I've ever seen! The booking process was straight forward and driving directions great. We will definitely book again with our family in the future.

Dont trust them

  • 1 of 5

Once we arrived we checked everyrhing and realized the sliding door lock was damaged. I messaged the owner regarding this right away and she said she would have someone out there to fix it. No one ever came and now they're charging me for damage saying it wasnt there. Bull crap. She also messaged me after we paid for everything saying there has been burglaries lately and make sure everything is locked and blinds are closed. The only way we could lock the sliding door was a wooden stick that they had in the door sliding area and a lot of the blinds are missing so people can see in. Where the screen door is, there's a cut in the screen where someone opened the lock before too. This place isnt safe and they will tell you that after you pay. The beds are horrible as well. You're body will hate you every night. Very springy. Maybe with the money that they just stole from me they can buy a new bed. I will be contacting people to get my money back regarding this

Beautiful home and great area!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house! It was very clean, the pool area was clean- the only thing I had an issue with is a pool guy came to clean the pool and we had no idea he was coming, wasn’t that big of a deal, but would have liked a phone call as a heads up! I would definitely stay here again!!

Cheapest stay for 10 people I've ever seen

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice and clean and had plenty of room for 10 people. We had several days of down time between the Disney parks and we enjoyed the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes so we were able to prepare meals at the home which also helped save some money. We packed minimally knowing that there was a washer and dryer available for use mid week and we were able to swim the day we left because we just threw our suits in the dryer for awhile prior to leaving. My only comment is . . . Bring Toilet Paper. The house is not stocked with soap, toilet paper, garbage bags, laundry soap, etc. so we had to purchase those things there and we still ran out of toilet paper. Who knew how much toilet paper 10 people will use in a week! I knew we needed our own laundry and dishwasher soap, but did not understand that there would be no toilet paper or garbage bags or hand soap. Just a warning, but it was not that big of deal.

Owner's Response: Hi Cheryl, Thank you for taking the time to review the villa - I'm glad you enjoyed you stay. I have followed up with my management company who have given my the list of the items which are provided to every home for before each booking, as follows: Kitchen roll x1. Dishwasher tablets x2 Trash can liners x2 in kitchen Small trash can liners x1 for each can throughout. Toilet roll x1 per toilet. Small soap bar x2 per bathroom. If some of these items were not provided on this occasion, I sincerely apologise. I will make it clearer to future guests that additional items need to be purchased to avoid any surprises during your vacation. This is the usual format for self-catering holidays, and I hope the good value rental rates reflect that these items are not included for the duration of your stay. Thanks again, Laura

Great stay, lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks over Christmas recently. Lovely villa with extremely comfortable beds. It was especially nice to find a good quality Christmas tree with decorations in the garage, which made our stay even better. Heated pool was great too.

Sandy Ridge is an upmarket community located just 7 miles from Walt Disney World. This neighbourhood sits nestled just outside of Orlando, Florida and has quickly become one of the most desired resorts in the Orlando area.

Sandy Ridge is only a 30 minute drive from the Orlando International Airport, and is situated close to all of Orlando’s famous attractions.

PUBLIX supermarket and a CVS pharmacy are just 2 minutes drive from Sandy Ridge, with more shopping / eating places available at Champions Gate near the junction to access the Highway I-4 (4 minutes drive.) At Champions Gate there is a McDonald’s, Subway, petrol station, banking facilities and Italian and Chinese restaurants which both deliver to Sandy Ridge.

There are several outstanding golf courses within a few minutes drive of the villa, including Champions Gate and Reunion - the only place where you will find Signature Design courses by three of golf’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer.

Sandy Ridge also has a small children’s play area within a minute from the villa.

Mickey's Place is on a very quiet safe road away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, and you will be able to relax and enjoy the lovely surroundings in this beautiful villa. At the back of the villa is conservation ground and a grassed area.

The villa is in a great location for all of central Florida's main attractions.
