About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, private pool and jacuzzi, sleeps 12, kid's kot and chair

FREE JACUZZI HEATING! 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!


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

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

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.

Discovery Cove

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!

Daytona Beach

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.

Dinner Shows

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.

Helicopter Rides

See all Orlando's attractions from the air! A helicopter ride is without doubt the best way to experience Orlando. Choose among several rides.

Thanks Mona for letting us stay in your home for our family vacation. The home was great and clean and had everything we needed. The pool and hot tub were the best and we played in it every morning and night we stayed. I recommend to everyone and will stay again if we ever head that way again.

The whole process of renting the home was very smooth.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay. The house had everything my family and I needed. The pool and deck area was great. We were able to cook a very nice Thanksgiving dinner. We went to all four Disney Parks with ease. Able to go food shopping and shopping at the Outlets as well. A very nice home away from home.

The house was very conveniently located and had great amenities for large family

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for my family of 12. Most things were available. The mattresses did need upgrades as most of them squeeked through thre night but were fairly comfortable. The house could have been slightly cleaner on arrival. The pool was great but had to be cleaned of an algae problem. Overall the house was a great part of our vacation and was very conveniently located to most attractions less than 20 minutes to most. Would definitely stay there again

Owner's Response: Thanks a million for your kind words! We love to share our vacation home with new "friends", and always find that people treat the place with respect and often return! I am so glad you felt that you got the help you needed from me, and welcome you back to our pool home at any time! Spread the word to friends and family! It is such a nice, peaceful place with the private, south-facing pool, and I am so excited that the house just got a new coat of paint. Sincerely, Mona

We had a wonderful time in a place that's like ho

  • 5 of 5

A 5 bedroom and 3 bathroom home was not just a house. It is set up as a loving home with personal pictures and decorations. My mom enjoyed the king sized bed with a beautiful large bathroom that was easy for her to navigate with her walker. The sponge Bob room was my youngest granddaughter's favorite. All of them loved the pool and hot tub, they spent hours in them. The home had everything in it you would need like towels, linen, blankets,and pillows. The kitchen was fully equipped with dishes, silverware, pots and pans; even vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board. A home away from home. The home was only a couple miles away from disney world and the owner left a book with directions to grocery stores, restaurants and other stores. She thought of everything you may need; even games to play and password to Wi-Fi. I differently would stay there again. I've already recommended it to friends.

We use our vacation home as much as we can, and count the days until next time we can enjoy a cold glass of something good by the pool! Welcome back at any time! Thanks, Mona

About Mona Engvig

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

Why Mona Engvig chose Sandy Ridge

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear all,

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!
