Our stay at Sandy Ridge was fantastic, close to all the attractions. Loved the heated pool. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone coming to Orlando.

A wonderful home that is close to all major attractions!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days and everyone really enjoyed. The owner was extremely kind and accommodating and worked hard to make sure everything went well. The care taker went out of their way to come over help with whatever we needed. The pool is large and has great lights for night swimming. The house has two separate sides with 2 master suites so there is a lot of privacy. Overall it was a great experience! Thank you!

Clean, easy to get to theme parks.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean. The kids and adults loved the gameroom! Pool heated and clean. Just a few issues. The 2nd master shower had large leak from the door. The couple staying in that room could not use it. Booking info states a K cup coffee maker, it is a drip coffee maker. There was a notice to wash and dry all towels that were used before leaving. This was difficult with 8 of us and check out time of 10am. Overall it was good house for our group to stay at to visit Universal Studios.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay overall! Sorry you had to deal with the leakage from the 2nd master shower. This has been brought to the attention of our property manager and someone has been called to address the issue. My apologies for the inconvenience! As for the k-cup coffee machine, it unfortunately had to be removed just before your arrival...sorry it wasn't available for you. Guests are asked to assist in washing/drying a load of towels but we do understand that sometimes it just cannot be done however if it was a longer stay, perhaps guests can do this prior to the day of departure. Thank you for your feedback as it helps us in improving our vacation home for future guests.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is located about 20 minutes from Disney and 25 from Universal (factoring in traffic). Not a bad commute. The home itself is in a decent subdivision, and is clean and well laid out. The game room in the garage can get a bit toasty, but is a lot of fun and a good way to wind down from the day. The pool is a good size and the view of the pond is soothing, much better than looking into someone else's back door! There was a 4 foot alligator in residence at the pond, so keep an eye on little ones. The kitchen was decently stocked with pots/pans, mixing bowls and utinsels. Other than small containers of salt and pepper, there were no other staples like oil, etc. Make sure to stock up on paper products and things like soap: but a trip to Publix is only a couple of miles a way. Over all a very nice place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you had a good time. We don't keep a supply of staples like paper goods, detergents, etc as we have found that not all guests like what is provided and prefer to have their own personal choice of items like that to use. Minimal food items and/or spices are not left behind for the safety of all our guests (contamination, allergies, etc). Hope to "see" you again. Snowbirds Rest @ Sandy Ridge
