About Mitch Ford

My name is Mitch. I live in the UK, Salford to be precise. I am married to Lisa, with a son called Jake and a daughter called Tegan. I am a SAP / Success Factors consultant (Computer geek) and my wife is a Bank Manager. We love Florida and have been visiting for many many years. We love it so much, we bought a property there.

We adore spending time in the villa, it is a great place to relax and spend time with the family. Chill out by the pool, visit the theme parks and shop til you drop!

Many of our guests have chosen to return which must be a testament to the quality of the villa. In fact, we have just recently had a guest complete their 4th visit to the villa. They treat it as their second home, which is fantastic from my perspective.

Mitch Ford purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mitch Ford chose Davenport

We bought the property primarily for the location. We wanted to be close to theme parks, shops and restaurants. We are situated on US27 and are around 3 minutes from the I4 junction 55. We can get to Disney in around 14 minutes, Sea World in 20 minutes and Universal & Islands of Adventure in 25/30 minutes. The Atlantic coast is a 45 minute drive with Cocoa Beach being the closest beach, and a great place place to watch space coast launches. The Gulf coast is around an hours drive. We love the Gulf Coast.....the ocean is so warm, on our last trip the temperature was like stepping into a jacuzzi.

What makes this villa unique

When we first stared travelling to Florida, we stayed in hotels which was great. We then started renting villas and once you have done that, it is difficult to go back to a hotel. With a villa, you have your own private pool.

A huge fridge to fill with beer (sorry) food, you can save money by eating at the villa as opposed to having to dine out all the time. We have 4 TVs in different rooms so you can always find your own space, if you want a break from the rest of your party. One of the TV's is a huge 50 inch plasma.

We have a shopping mall over the road called Posner Park, with shops, restaurants and a cinema complex. There are some excellent restaurants in the vicinity, our favourite is 'Manny's Chop House'. Reasonably priced and awesome steaks!

We have recently had a privacy fence installed at the rear of the property, so the pool area is not over looked by neighbours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the villa in December and were so impressed by every aspect. The villa is in a great location, close to the parks and near to shops and restaurants. The villa itself was lovely, with a contemporary feel. Not your typical traditional chintzy floral/flamingo type furnishings. the pool was heated and the kids didn't want to leave.

Excellent Home for Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this home. The pool was great for our kids and home owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Location was close to I4 which made it easy to commute to attractions. Home was very clean as well.

Clean house, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our two young boys. The house is very clean and well maintained and in a quiet gated neighborhood, and has a great layout. Pictures shown are very accurate. The owner is very accommodating, excellent to deal with, and responds to questions extremely quickly. Playpen, stroller and high chair were all provided, along with several beach and pool towels. The pool was warm and also very clean. The house is close to restaurants and grocery stores and is a short distance from the I4. Overall a great place to stay with kids.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 weeks at this really great villa, Mitch the owner could not have done any more to make our stay better with tips and advice on all aspects.

The location is perfect being close to I 4 and 27 with just 20 mins drive to Disney. It's in a quite neighbourhood that's very secure and lots of restaurants close by plus Publix and Walmart supermarket just a short drive away.

The villa is very comfortable and has everything you could need . The heated pool is fantastic and we both swam every morning and evening. Despite a problem with the pool heater breaking down on one day, Mitch sorted it out and it was back upto temp on the same day .

I can thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone looking to holiday in Florida , with thanks to Mitch for great customer service.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian & Jean, Thanks so much for the review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa. Apologies about the pool heater shutting down whilst on your stay, but as you say this was quickly resolved. Our management company (Fairways of Florida) are based just up the road so they are pretty quick to deal with any issues regarding the villa. Please look us up again for your next trip, and if you know of any colleagues, friends or family intending to holiday in Orlando, then please pass on my contact details. Thanks again ! Mitch & Lisa

Great villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for one week in March 2017. Sunset Ridge is very quiet and easily accessible. Most activities (shopping, parks) are approx. 20 minutes away. Swimming pool in the sun the whole day from around 10 am. We really enjoyed the privacy of the pool and the water was heated to a very comfortable temperature. Beds were comfortable and the villa had plenty of room for a family of 4. Owner was great to deal with. Would definitely recommend this property.

A wonderful place to spend February in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Mitch and Lisa's place in Davenport is a great place to spend time in Florida. The accommodations were very clean and the house is comfortable with a nicely fenced private pool area. The area is very secure and the location is excellent - lots of attractions, golf courses and restaurants nearby. We have stayed at many VRBO locations and Mitch's customer service was first rate...we would definitely return here for a future Florida vacation.

Brilliant property

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and everything necessary provided. The owners are fantastic at providing tips and tricks and advised many restaurants. The pool was great and the water temperature when heated was very welcoming at the end of a long day. One of the best villas we have stayed in, great location and would definitely stay again.
