About the property

5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 10

'Key Villa, The Disney retreat is under 15 minutes drive from Disney's Main Gates!

A great 5 bed pool home close to the Orlando attractions in Davenport, Florida.

Offering spacious, fully air conditioned accommodation, beautifully furnished - great, central location close to I-4, US-27 & HWY192!

'Key Villa - The Disney Retreat is located on a popular rental community of

Sandy Ridge, Davenport, Orlando.

Sandy Ridge, Davenport is a new vacation community set within lush conservation and is ideally situated within easy reach of the Central Florida popular theme parks and attractions (Disney's Main Gates are

only about a 15 minute drive away). This nicely landscaped community also has its own kiddies play area for those 'little ones' who still have plenty of energy after a day at the theme parks.

Being close to great routes such as Interstate 4 and Hwy 192 makes planning those all important days out to parks, beaches or shopping that much easier. Florida's beautiful coastline is also within easy reach and has many great beaches to offer, from the quiet white sands of St Pete's to the fast pace of Clearwater, and with one of the closest (Cocoa Beach) being just over an hour's drive away, they are definitely well worth a visit.

Although golfers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to golf courses, Sandy Ridge is within a few minutes drive of the popular Champions Gate Golfing Resort offering some great championship courses to suit all handicaps. A supermarket and various other shops opened in 2008 within a couple of minutes drive of our vacation rental home with additional shops and some fine restaurants located at a little further up the road at Champions Gate, with much more coming soon ('Down Town' Champions Gate). The brand new Posner Park shopping mall which is located just off US-27 has just opened its doors to some of the new shops with more opening from mid 2008 and throughout 2009 and with Hwy 192 offering an abundance of gift shops, food outlets, helicopter rides, a variety of fun family activities there is just so much fun to be had by all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lovely home. Nicely furnished, very comfortable. There were 8 of us: 4 adults, 3 teenagers and 1 7- yr- old. Perfect accommodations with plenty of fun activities at the house to keep all ages entertained (pool, game room, BBQ grill,etc). It would have been nice to have tv/dvd players in each bedroom. However there is a dvd player and large screen tv in living room. The property owners were quick and courteous when replying to my emails. I would recommend this property to all age groups and I definitely would stay there again."

We loved our stay at this wonderful villa! It was so relaxing with great views of the ranch as well as a lovely layout and brilliant games room! And it was so close to everywhere we wanted to visit! We would highly recommend it!

Absolutely filthy! How this villa has so many good reviews, I will never know!!!

  • 1 of 5

On arrival we found dirty bed linen, hair balls & other dirt in the pool, (so bad I couldn't let my kids in there) broken blind, lock hanging out of patio door, food & rubbish under beds & generally a very dirty villa. Our 1st day was spent chasing the owner & cleaner of the property, I managed to get the very ride cleaner to the villa, who took a few stained bed linen items away with her but refused to do a full clean of the villa as 'it was already clean'! She did however send someone else to Hoover the food from under the beds! Pool was cleaned but wasn't able to use for the first day due to being filthy dirty, along with the poolside being scattered with empty bottles, used plasters & the previous occupants used inflatables! The jacuzzi (later in the holiday) emptied itself & clearly then would've been dangerous to let the children around the oool area, so again, no pool! We complained on the first day & was given £80 for a meal out to compensate us but this doesn't come close to compensation for our stay in this villa! We are now in the process of taking matters further as the owner feels all the above is perfectly acceptable for a villa rental! DO NOT STAY IN THIS VILLA!!! Although we loved Florida, we ended up using to villa as a crash pad! Far too expensive for that!

Owner's Response: This guest contacted us to say that one of the top bed comforters had a stain on it (not the bed linen as described as this was fresh and clean on arrival) she also complained of a few crumbs she found under the bed in master bedroom and ONE empty plastic bottle and a used plaster out by pool. Which she sent photos of. She also complained that the pool was not cleanl. The pool had been cleaned a couple of days earlier and the photos she sent us of the pool only showed a crystal clear pool to us, however we apologised profusely about this and got my management out to the property within a few hours. They took the bed comforter off the bed and took it to be cleaned. They vacuumed the whole of the property again and the pool guy came out and cleaned the pool again. Myself and the management were very apologetic and asked if there was anything else that they were not happy about and they said all was okay. At no time was anyone rude to this guest, nobody refused to do anything for her, as explained she was asked if there was anything else and she said no. There was no further complaints from the guest while at the property. We were informed by our management after they left that the they had tampered with the motorised valves for the spa outside of the pool enclosure and that is why the spa had drained, but our management reset the valves and refilled the spa same day so there was never any loss of pool or spa. We were also informed that they left the property in a very bad way and it took our management 7 hours to clean the property after they left.They had eaten food and drink in the beds and stained all the white sheets in the one bedroom. After they left the property they asked us for half of their money back, and made up several false claims about the property, we refused and explained that the only issue they had was on day one, and we corrected that the same day and we had already given them a gesture of goodwill of $100 on day one. They then decided to make a court claim against us in the UK for half their money which we defended in full. They obviously knew they had no evidence to support their claim because they did not pay the final court fee to carry on with the claim and it was struck out by the court. They have zero regard for us or for our property. Anyone reading this i strongly advise them to read previous reviews one just 7 days before them. We have 43 reviews on the website and this guest is the only one that has left a negative review.

The best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome. It was reasonably close to everything and in great condition. The poll was really nice. The kitchen is stock with all appliances, dishes etc. More than enough towels. Very clean. Easy instructions provided as well. Will definitely stay here again. They are very responsive to any questions you have and were delightful. Thank you guys very much for making my vacation. A good one. :)

Fantastic Stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely week at The Disney Retreat and would recommend this villa.

Its location is perfect for Disney trips with all the parks not more than 20minutes door to door.

The neighbourhood is a mixture of residential and holiday rentals with a little park a short walk from the villa if you want to venture out.

The pool was a massive hit with our 7 year old as was the air hockey in the games room.

The villa is well equipped and only a short drive to Publix for all your catering requirements.

But I have to say the biggest bonus for this property are the owners Carl & Leona they are extremely helpful and accommodating they are also very fast to respond to all enquiries before, during and after your trip.

Great home..Roomy and very clean. Owners were wonderful to work with. And we received prompt remedies from Emily for the issues that she could remedy. The horses were an added bonus.
