Thank you for viewing our property. This is our first Florida home and we hope you love it as much as we do. Sunridge Woods is a quiet and very well maintained community with both residential and holiday homes. Unlike most holiday homes, this villa does not have a splash pool but has a 30ft x 13ft covered swimming pool with an extended deck backing onto a wooded conservation area making the back of the property very private. The 3 bedroom villa is one of the largest on the estate and as well as having 2 totally separate living rooms we have a very large outside veranda,complete with all the necessary furniture Our Sonshine villa has been lovingly cared for, is fully air conditioned and is furnished to a very high standard with new soft furnishings throughout. It has a bright and airy open plan living area with new 55" Smart TV, Cable/ DVD/VHS player. The cable TV has been upgraded providing 100's of channels and there is high speed 5G WiFi. Free local and USA telephone calls. There is a safe and a 'vintage' Nintendo games console with games, air hockey table and darts board, computer, monitor and printer set up in the carpeted Games Room. Our local supermarket is 2 minutes away by car and you will find a number of fast food eateries and restaurants on the same complex. We are situated 2 miles from the Interstate 4 and the golf courses at Reunion and Champion Gates. It is a 12 minute car journey to Disney, 15 minutes to Sea World and 20 minutes to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. For time away from the theme parks drive West to the beautiful beaches of Clearwater or head East to Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach and the Kennedy Space Centre.

About Craig Sharkey

Hi we are Craig and Alison Sharkey with two grown up daughters, Laura and Beth. Our home town is Wigan in Lancashire but have always considered Florida to be our second home. We have owned a Photography/design business for over 30 years and are now looking forward to spending more time in the lovely Florida sunshine. After spending many years of travelling over the pond,searching the internet and trawling through countless emails, we have finally found the one that ticks all our boxes - and we love it! We built our own home here in the UK so Craig will be quite happy spending his time pottering round with paintbrush and toolkit in hand while Alison will be happy just to relax (although this is not always the case and she usually ends up a ladder with paint brush in hand!). We enjoy sharing our second home with our guests and its great to be able to help and offer advice when needed.

Craig Sharkey purchased this villa in 2015

Why Craig Sharkey chose Davenport

After many years of looking around we found this area to be our favourite. Sunridge Woods is a lovely, peaceful community. The homes appear to be very well looked after and the gardens well kept. We loved the fact that it backs onto a conservation area and the homes are on large plots, set well back from the road. The theme parks and the beaches are easily accessible as the Interstate 4 is close by. For the keen golfers there are two fabulous golf courses at Reunion and Champion Gates or do what many do and just enjoy a pleasant stroll around the area.

New note.October 2015.

We have just returned from a week at the villa after a 3 week stay in Florida. We flew to Miami and then drove up the west coast to Naples, Fort Myers, Anna Marie Island, Clearwater then home to Sunridge Woods. We would have returned sooner but the villa was booked up!

After looking around at other properties we are pleased to see how well cared for this residential estate is. The house opposite has just received an award for his garden from the HOA. Our Villa is one of the largest 3 bedroom villas in the area, with an exceptional large outside veranda which is great in the evening for outdoor dining or just to escape the sun and cool down under the ceiling fan. We have updated the lounge with a 55" smart TV, hands free telephone and new soft furnishings.

Master bedroom has had a complete makeover with new 46" flat TV, new bedding ,cushions, curtains and blinds.

Master Bathroom now has twin shower heads, bright blue mats and new white towels.

New flat screen TVs in all bedrooms, a computer and printer for guests to use.

The villa has been very busy, booking very quickly since our purchase in January and we are pleased to report our rental guests have really looked after our home in our absence.

What makes this villa unique

Staying at the property is like home from home with a large swimming pool and deck to enjoy. The house is comfortable, bright and airy and whilst the big shopping malls are easy to get to there are supermarkets and restaurants close by if you don't want to leave the sunbed for too long.

We try to fly back twice a year in order to make sure everything is up to the standard we would expect for our guests.

Our last visit included making the new games room and adding all the new 12 in 1 Games, storage cupboards, carpeting and decorating. We fitted the wall mounted streaming TV which now provides You Tube films, music and lots of programmes to choose from.

Alison painted all the white skirting boards, wardrobes doors and entrance hall. We cut back some of the front bushes, trimming and dressing our super tall pine trees at the front of the house and added some nice purple plants at the front and some bushes to the rear.

We also added a new writing bureau in the front formal lounge with new curtains in the bedrooms. Finally we added a touch of colour to the Master bathroom wall to match the new window pelmet......So much for a holiday!!!!

2017 - We have just returned home from spending a glorious month there during which time we have done some re-decorating both inside and outside and have updated some of the soft furnishings.

We also saw that around Champion Gates there are new shops and restaurants being built and the speed at which the buildings go up it won't be long before they are ready. With each visit we are always amazed at how quickly things improve and how well it is done.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We give the home a 5 star rating!

My husband and I enjoyed each day at your home during our March 2017 stay. It has a nice layout design, clean, and nothing needed repair (as previous rented homes have needed).

Craig and Alison did a very nice job of painting and organizing their home. Craig checks in with renters to be sure all is ok. No one has ever done that....thank you! Location is idea for visiting many sites and our friends in all directions which we have done the past five years. The lanai and pool were so nice to enjoy while relaxing.

We look forward to another visit next year.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: We have only recently purchased this property (Jan 2015) and so it is new to the rental market. As this was a residential home previously. the house is very well equipped, everything you would need to make it home from home. We have updated all the soft furnishings and installed new flat screen TV'S, updating the cable package to Premier and the WiFi to 5G. As yet we have not had the opportunity to install a games rooms (although there is a air hockey table and darts board set up in the garage) but this is planned for later in the year. The villa is in immaculate condition having been well looked after by the previous owners and you know you have arrived when you drive through the palm tree lined boulevard. Our property management is just minutes away. This is a non-smoking home and unfortunately we cannot accept pets. We want our guests to feel comfortable and relaxed during their stay in Florida and hopefully this is something we have achieved. Outside: The villa is surrounded by lovely, well maintained gardens with orange and lemon trees. It is well set back from the road giving it great curb appeal. The heated pool measures 30ft x 13" ft and is private to the villa. The large deck provides both sunny and shade areas and is a fabulously large space for outdoor living. The property is secluded at the rear and fully screened giving you plenty of privacy. There is ample outdoor furniture for guests to relax and enjoy the abundant Florida sunshine. Utility Room: Washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All towels and linen are included (apart from beach towels). The property is fully cleaned before arrival with all towels and linen washed and replaced. Other: Breakfast Area - table and chairs with storage cupboards. Second formal lounge - bright sunny lounge at the front the villa with two settees. Formal dining area - table and chairs to seat 6 people.

The Hurricane is coming

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week at the villa as the second week of our holiday arriving on Saturday 7th September. This turned out to be the day before Hurricane Irma arrived !!

We arrived and arranged to meet Craig and Alison and can I say they could not have been any more friendly, helpful and accommodating to us at this time and during our stay.

The Villa - we have been visiting Florida for several years now and have stayed in numerous Villas but this one stand up as one of the very best ever - the area is excellent - the presentation of the villa was excellent- the lay out of the villa is excellent- the pool is definitely the best one we have ever had - in conclusion we will 100% return and would highly recoment it to one and all - 5 star service ....Many thanks from Alan and Gail

Excellent Villa, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

25 - 35 drive mins from Disney and Universal, via several routes I4 or smaller/quieter roads. Publix supermarket/cashpoint or a Dunkin Donuts within 5 minutes of Villa, a variety of Buffets restaurants such as Perkins/Cracker Barrel/Grand China/Waffle House from 10 - 30 minutes drive away on the 192 or 528..

Pool a welcome relief from 102 in the shade :-), many chairs n sun beds to "lounge" on/in.

Villa very comfortable and exceptionally well equipped, you'll never want for a TV, plus with Netflix/Amazon etc. login to your own account then sit back and relax.

Superb villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

In summary, a perfectly positioned villa which is very well maintained and had everything we could posssibly need as a family with children of all ages (games room, lovely pool, plenty TVs).

20 mins to Disney, 40/45 mins to Universal, 5 mins to Supermarket and fast food outlets.

Craig in regular communication before our stay to ensure we were fully briefed (including info on the pantry - well stocked). Also in touch on arrival to make sure all was well.

Fantastic villa in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and myself decided on a villa for our first Florida holiday together, we wanted a base to explore all the parks that was a home from home and wow did we get that. All the villas facilities are great especially the large pool. You really can tell it's a home and not just a rental villa. Yes, it was probably too big for us two but we didn't care. The owner has been amazing with fantastic communication and so much helpful advice it's made everything easier. We will definitely be back, hopefully with the rest of my partners family but if not we'll have to come on our again! What a shame.... hehe!

Beautiful home from home villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Orlando since 1995 and have now finally found the perfect place to stay. The Villa is in a great location, only a few minutes drive to shops and restaurants and easy access to the freeway to get to the parks. It has everything you need during your stay, it is spotlessly clean and the outside area is fantastic. Craig (the owner) makes sure you are taken care of before, during and after your stay. We have since booked a further 2 stays at the villa and can not wait to go back. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Orlando.
