About Dave

My family and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We have always loved to travel, especially to the warmer climates. Over the last several years, we have taken our vacations to Florida. We decided to buy a house in Florida 'Our little paradise' and share it with other people that love to travel to the sun and excitement of Orlando, Florida.

Dave purchased this house in 2009

Why Dave chose Sandy Ridge

Sandy Ridge is a newly built community that is 15 minutes from the major attractions. Sandy Ridge is a quiet, safe neighborhood, surrounded by conservation woodland, where you will enjoy spending time with friends and family. It feels like a country retreat because of the undeveloped area. There is a farmer’s field, fenced of course, where horses will wander around and peak over the fence to see what you are up to. It is just far enough away to get away from the excitement, after a busy day. There is also a children’s jungle gym within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave was helpful before we came with questions we had and he gave insightful suggestions to make our stay fruitful. (he also was prompt with answers to our questions we had while we were there as well)

The property was secure and the keypad access was very useful at night. The house was gorgeous throughout. The one level bungalow made it easy to move around within the house.

The pool was clean and refreshing during the warm weather.

The house had many items, and all we needed was to buy food and cook it. The house had a washer and dryer in it which helped with cleaning towels and clothes on a daily basis. The location of the house was within walking distance of the park and a 5 minute drive away from groceries and restaurants.

This was an A-1 vacation for my husband and me.

I would recommend this house to family and friends.

Thank you,

Rose

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 4 we stayed 2.5 weeks in this vacation home and we really had a great time. Sandy Ridge appeared as a well maintained and peaceful estate. Close enough to Orlando and all its surrounding attractions but far away enough from noise, traffic and rush of big cities. We traveled around, visited theme parks, beaches, malls etc. and of course we took advantage of the conveniences of the vacation home. Upon our arrival we were facing some minor technical difficulties. Once informed the home owner immediately initiated all actions required so these difficulties could be resolved by the local management in a very short time. Great support! The home was well maintained and equipped with everything required to feel comfortable. In the kitchen we found every utensil required for cooking and preparing meals and so we made use of those several times. I also slept very well from the first night on. It was silent at night and really relaxing. Overall our stay was really enjoyable time. If we could we would immediately come back. We would be more than happy to stay in this vacation home again when we visit Florida for the next time.

Owner's Response: One of our best guests ever! We are glad you all had a wonderful time. Sounds like the house was exactly what you were looking for. And being close to all the parks, made it easy to come back and cool off in the pool. Thanks for staying at our house, we hope to hear from you again, Dave

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 stayed in this home from Oct 13 - Oct 19, 2012. The house was just as it appears in the photos, clean, spacious, and had all the amenities we needed to make our stay comfortable and homey. We were about 10-15 minutes from Disney Theme Parks so it made the commute in and out of Disney great. Convenient to a grocery store, gas station, and even a McDonalds. It was wonderful to go explore Disney and come back to the quiet solitude of a home where you could swim, cook, sleep, do laundry, and relax. The booking of this home was smooth, the owner was prompt, check in was a breeze and checking out was easy. I highly recommend the stay here in this home.

We found an absolutely great steak/seafood house called "Wildside" about 7 - 10 minutes away from the house. The steak was awesome!

Overall.... it was just perfect.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property and it's a very nice house but the only complaint is with the towels. We felt that there were not enough bath towels and the quality of the towels was not good (very thin towels). Other than that, we had a great time and happy to have stayed there.

Clean & Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for four bedrooms with a pool at a decent price and this place covered it. It was super clean, the beds were really comfortable, and the rooms were almost sound-proof. I like the split floor plan which had my daughter and her family on one side of the house and my spouse and I on the other.

There were some basic kitchen supplies missing and a couple small broken items within the house, but overall we REALLY enjoyed our stay. Good deal for the money spent.

This is a very nice home. We enjoyed the stay.

  • 4 of 5

Although we weren't at the house much we really enjoyed the stay. It's a little out of the way for shopping which is why I gave 4 stars. But grocery shopping and restaurants are very close by. The beds were very comfortable. And everything needed to prepare breakfast was there. Although I always bring my own towels and bath cloths there were more than enough there. The owner of the property replied quickly when we had a question. We will love to stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi Cynthia, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. Sounds like you had all the house amenities that you required, to add to your pleasant stay. Shopping at the outlets is about 20-25 minutes away, but as you know, it is very direct - straight down the I4 highway. Thank you, and we'd love to host you again in the near future, Dave
