About the property

Villa in Ridgewood Lakes, Nr Disney, Davenport, Orlando / Kissimmee, Florida, USA - 5* Perfect Location - South Facing - On Golf Course - Lake View - Private Gated Golf Country Club

We purchased Nepenthe Villa on a prime lot on Ridgewood lakes golf course in January 2014. South facing 40 foot extended length private pool - pool bathroom comes complete with 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, large family room, upgraded kitchen, full utility room. New Flat Screen TV In All Bedrooms. Ridgewood Lakes is a fully gated sub division, where the majority of homes are residential year round with no short term vacation rents, this means the area is kept to a very high standard, with exceptional landscaping and upkeep.

About Darren Sandy

We are a professional couple based in Yorkshire UK. I have been visiting the Central Florida area since the mid 1980's initially as a teenager with my family and subsequently with my now wife. We love to travel especially in the US and when we found this property finally decided to buy in the area rather than rent others.

Darren Sandy purchased this villa in 2014

Why Darren Sandy chose Davenport

We have visited the Disney Area for almost 30 years, staying in both hotels and over 10 different private rental villas. All had different advantages and disadvantages and are a balance between location, size, cost and value.

We believe Nepenthe Villa offers the perfect combination with a relaxed atmosphere of a Fully Gated Golf Country Club but with the theme parks only 15minutes away.

Direct access to the I4 Interstate is within a couple of miles, without the need to travel on the very congested US192.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is complete with 40 foot oversized private pool on a south facing lot.

Both Golf course and lake views on the 3rd green.

Recently repainted inside and out

All bedrooms have Flat Screen TV

New suite to Master Bedroom

Lovely Villa - great facilities and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks as a family of 7 and had an amazing holiday. The villa is lovely, spacious, clean and well furnished. It is ideally located for all Disney Parks and has all amenities close by. We stayed here as the previous reviews were good and we were not disappointed - we would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it, whether you want the fun of Disney or to chill by the pool in the relaxing golf surroundings - fantastic!

Pool with a view

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who have been visiting Florida for over 20 years, over this time we have stayed in several villas, both in the Kissimmee area and also on the coast, until this villa we had never considered staying on a golf course, but this turned out to be an excellent choice, the lake is a haven for various birds, fish and alligators. We also had a woodpecker and a squirrel or tow that were frequent visitors along with a family of cranes.

Ridgewood Lakes is a lovely area, very secure with a 24 hour manned security gate which gives you extra peace of mind, the estate also has very well maintained grounds from first turning into the driveway, lots of trees, flowers and lawned areas, along with lakes, tennis courts, community pool and of course golf.

The villa is really large both inside and out, we had more than enough space and would imagine even if we had been a larger party room would not have been a problem. The flat screen TV's with so many channels to choose from were a huge hit with our grandson (20) and my husband.

Our stay was from mid April to early May, we decided against pool heating, this was a good choice as the weather was really good during our stay and the pool got warmer day by day.

The villa is close to a Publix supermarket, and a little further down the road you can choose from Winn Dixie or Wal Mart. There is not a huge choice of restaurants close by but there is a Bob Evans, Perkins, Chillis and Denny's close by with a few others we didn't try, but getting to the 192 with its abundance of eateries is easy to do, due to the close proximity to the I4.

Getting to any of the parks from the villa is also easy again due to being so close to the junction with the I4, much quicker than other villas we have rented.

Dealing with Darren was a pleasure, he was happy to talk on the phone or send information by email when requested. The information given to reach the villa was accurate and sent well in advance of travel.

I have already recommended the villa to friends and we are hoping to make a return visit ourselves next year.

5* Villa, Fantastic Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very receptive by phone and e-mail relating to information prior to travel.

This was our sixth visit to Florida, on a family vacation and we have chosen a Villa on each occasion for comfort and convenience.

This Villa did not disappoint, it was very well furnished, spacious with a good layout. The Master Bedroom with En Suite, Walk in Wardrobe, Jacuzzi Bath, Walk In Shower and Large Wall Mounted TV and King Size Bed was stunning.

The Pool was great with fantastic views across the Golf Course.

There are some good restaurants in the Davenport Area, make sure that you research on TripAdvisor.

Highly recommended.

5 Star Villa

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Villa, very well furnished and with everything you need for a comfortable vacation.

Good sized bedrooms, all with tv's and good storage space, the

master bedroom is large with an excellent en suite.

The swimming pool was a very good size with a nice view on to the golf course.

The location of the property is great, on a nice quiet development

and close to some good restaurants,shops and all the attractions.
