About Sue Johnson
Avid Disney fans that have just purchased our 3rd short term rental home near Disney. Bought our first vacation rental home in 2000, second one in 2006 and now our third in 2015. Love Disney and want to share our joy with other families! We live in Northern Illinois and visit Florida as often as we can. Grew up in Sandwich, IL and now live in Sycamore, IL were my husband is the County Clerk and Recorder and I manage the vacation rentals and direct the fall musical and spring play at the local high school. We have 3 grown children and 2 lovable boxers! Yes - the home is pet friendly and we LOVE big dogs!
Sue Johnson purchased this House in 2015
Why Sue Johnson chose Citrus Ridge
You won't be sorry renting this vacation rental home! We have stayed at nearly all the Disney Resorts (which are all lovely BTW). but having your own home, being able to spread out and include more of your family / friends - with your own kitchen and private pool is THE way the go! Enough bathrooms that everyone can get ready at the same time and you can save money by eating breakfast at home or making dinner at night. Renting a home instead of a hotel room is a fraction of the cost.
What makes this House unique
Our homes are just like home - maybe even better. Tennis courts and children's playground is just a short walk from the home. Our subdivision is safe and have sidewalks and streetlights for nice walks! Private pool / free standing hot tub. Games room. I LOVE the new furniture and beach theme! You will too!

Great home close to Disney!
This was the 3rd vacation home we have rented in the Orlando area, and it was by far the best. The home was very clean, well equipped, and both secure yet easy to access. The kids loved the pool and my dogs the privacy fenced yard. The owners supply sheets to cover the furniture, so you don't have to worry about the kids or dogs making a mess. By far the smartest thing I have seen offered. This home is pet friendly, but you wouldn't know anyone brings their dogs because of their well thought out system. I have asthma and own Poodles, because they do not shed. I always worry if a vacation home will cause me issues, but I didn't see any hair in the home or on the furniture. I never had to use my inhaler, which was a nice surprise. We would absolutely stay here again.
Thanks for your awesome review!!! We really do pride ourselves in the fact that the homes are clean AND pet friendly!! Come back anytime and get your return guest discount of 10%. Just contact me directly!!!
Very enjoyable stay !

Description not accurate.
Let me start by saying that Sue (owner) and Karen (property mgr.) are very nice people. Sue and I spoke by phone prior to renting and we actually met Karen at the property. We rented this house because it is heavily advertised as pet friendly, with a fenced yard. Unfortunately (AND WE WERE NOT TOLD THIS), the trees were removed from the backyard a couple of weeks before our arrival and there are HUGE areas of nothing but sawdust and debris. Our dog wanted to play in the sawdust, dig in the sawdust, and eat the sawdust. For the entire stay (7 days), instead of being able to allow her the run of the backyard, we had to walk her on a leash or run the risk of a bowel obstruction from ingesting sawdust. I told Karen that we would NEVER have rented this home had we been told about the recent tree removal. She mentioned that she might be able to move us to another home that Sue owns but given our itinerary, even if she could have done that, we would have had to pack up and move at midnight.
Upon arrival at the house, we found a half roll of the absolute worst brand of one-ply paper towels you can buy, one-ply "sandpaper" type TP in all of the bathrooms, and exactly 4 dishwasher tablets, stuck together in a hard lump under the kitchen sink. The twin bed sheets and the king sheets were pilly and rough. My son said sleeping on the sheets was like "sleeping on a bed full of grits". I contacted Karen and she brought us new sheets and a full box of dishwasher tablets.
The house was clean but the lanai needs some attention to detail. Gaps in the door and screen allow bugs, frogs and worms into the pool. Also, the pictures of the pool are questionable. It looks really nice but once there you will see that it's small and not nearly as inviting (nice) as the pictures. Fortunately it rained a lot and we couldn't use it much or I probably would have been more upset about it.
Lastly, one of the screen doors on the lanai was broken and slammed hard everytime you went out. It sounded like a gunshot. Having to hold an umbrella and the dog leash made it impossible to close it quietly each time. I called Karen about the door on Monday and texted her on Thursday but no one came to fix it until the afternoon before we checked out.
We've been out of the home for 3 weeks now and I checked the listing and it still shows shade trees and a hammock in the backyard; neither of which are accurate. The listing needs to be updated for accuracy.
I am sorry you had such a bad experience. I am sorry it rained so you had to use an umbrella to walk your dog. We just had the trees taken out the week before you came, and will be replacing with 2 large palm trees in the next week or so. Just waiting on the landscapers. Palm trees will be more tropical and easier to clean up after. The oak trees were blocking the sun from the pool and people usually want sun by the pool. I'm sorry it happened before your stay. We are having all three of our homes painted right now and will be updating the photos when that is completed. That is the reason for not having the photos updated yet. I also wanted to wait until the new palm trees were in. The pool is actually larger than most of the pools in the subdivision. Sorry the TP and paper towels weren't up to your standards. We supply the first roll in each bathroom, and after that, it is up to you to get what you like. Karen is a wonderful manager. She probably would have gotten you the TP too. Had you asked her.
Good vacation rental
The house is spacious and great for our family and dog. Kathy is great with response time. Great location.
Great layout, close to parks
We had a great stay at your home. The Manager was very responsive when we had a small problem with the AC unit and we were very happy with the quick resolution. Close to all of the parks, and a great layout for families. Quiet neighborhood, and a large lot. The pool was great!
A lovely home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean, well appointed and had plenty of amenities. It was conveniently located. We had a couple minor problems (missing grill brush, broken vacuum (wanted to keep up with dog hair),) and they were corrected quickly! Karen and Sue were wonderful to work with. We appreciated the ability to bring our dogs! The fenced yard was wonderful to let the dogs play after being at a dog show all day long. If we were to change anything, a door that goes directly to the backyard would have been great. With retrievers that like to swim we had to walk them on leash past the pool 😊�. We would stay here again anytime!
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Next time you come back, you will get an automatic 10% return guest discount. Sorry about inconvenience of the security fence! It is there for for the safety of kids and pets who don't swim!!
Close to EVERYTHING you will need! 3 miles from Animal Kingdom and all of the Disney Theme Parks.
