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.
Hi we are Craig and Alison Sharkey, we have two grown up daughters, Laura and Beth and a golden retriever called Holly. 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 and enjoy.
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
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 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 the 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 Home Owners Association.
Our Villa is one of the largest in the area, with an exceptional large outside veranda which is great in the evening for outdoor dining or just to escape the sun in the cool area of the ceiling fan.
We have updated the lounge with a 55" smart TV, hands free telephone,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 and booked very fast since our purchase in January and we are pleased to report our rental guests have really looked after our home in our absence.
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. Fitting the wall mounted Streaming TV which now provides You tube Films,Music,and loads of Programmes.
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 adding a touch of colour to the Master bathroom wall to match the new window pelmet......So much for a holiday!!!!
We had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful villa. The description of the villa was completely accurate, everything we needed was available and communication with the owner prior, during and after our holiday was excellent. The villa was within easy reach of airport and theme parks and there was plenty of restaurants and supermarkets in the local area. We had an amazing time and would love to return and would definitely recommend this beautiful villa in a great location to others.
Brilliant location,easy to find from the airport.Supermarket,pharmacy 5 minute drive away.Disney,universal,waterparks close by 10mins being the nearest 30mins being the furthest drive away.
We loved the space the villa had to offer it is really clean and well looked after,all our needs catered for.
The layout worked really well for us.Didnt feel cramped and on top of each other.
The pool is a brilliant size and would definatley pay the little extra to have it heated during your stay.We used it at different times of the day/night and it was perfect.
We would highly recommend this villa and if we return to florida would definatley book this villa again
Stayed in the property for 2 weeks in March 16 with my family (2 adults, 3 children under 7) and my wife's parents.
Firstly we found the entire process of booking the property through Craig and his representatives in Florida extremely easy. Craig was particularly helpful with any questions we had and everything ran very smoothly right the way up to collecting the keys and dropping them back off.
The property itself was absolutely lovely, the pictures are great but I was pleasantly surprised to find the property was even nicer when we arrived. The rooms were all nice sizes and well kitted out - the living spaces were lovely and the kitchen had everything we needed. The pool was also great and a lot larger than many we have had previously in other villa's. The master bedroom is on the other side of the villa from the other two with its own bathroom - this was perfect for us and the in laws, allowing them to have some privacy.
In terms of location, it was perfect for us. We were close to all the main roads in and out of the parks and we had a decent sized supermarket in almost every direction we drove which was very handy with the young children.
All in all I would highly recommend staying here and would not hesitate to go back should in the future.
We arrived here on a Friday evening and was extremely happy with the curbside appeal of this property, it is in a lovely residential area with friendly neighbors. The listing is very accurate, the facilities were excellent - this villa has everything the holiday maker could possible need - it even had tupperware for taking out with you and a small games room in the garage. The villa was very clean and well kept, with plenty of towels and seating.
I would most definitely recommend this property to friends, family or anyone that mentions they want to stay in this area as this property helped to make our holiday an amazing one that we wont forget.
It is within easy distance to most of the popular attractions- so a great base.
I would recommend Perkins as a fantastic family restaurant as they provide a great variety of meals and they are extremely friendly too.
I will definitely be trying to book this villa again when we return to Florida as I could not fault a thing. The owner was extremely helpful when booking this and it was a pleasure doing business with him.
The villa was beautiful. Me, my wife and 7 year old daughter loved to come back to the spacious and relaxing villa after long days at the theme parks. Everything about the villa was perfect. Craig provided excellent communications and even took the trouble to call us during our stay to make sure everything was ok. We plan to visit Florida again and again in the coming years and we hope we can stay here when we do.
What a great find! this is just wonderful place to stay while in Orlando area, close to theme parks, quick access to motorway, (no tolls from here to parks), shops short drive, Wifi worked great, Pool was perfect with very large area.
Very clean and no issue during our 2 week stay, couple are lovely to deal with and kept informed. Also easy key collection set in a wonderful area, pool backs out onto a small area of trees, and the sun was never blocked, we will be back had a great time. A must rent villa.
