Fantastic Private Villa.
We had a fantastic stay at Allan & Helen's villa with plenty of room for us all (5 adults).
Very clean and tidy villa with everything we needed and more.
Great large pool for a swim and plenty of sun beds for catching those rays!! With large shaded covered area for lunch and drinks on those resting days !!
In a lovely, pretty, quiet gated golf community with friendly residents and within easy access to the main interstate 4 to get to the parks, beaches and entertainment.
Thanks again Allan & Helen for your help and for your speedy provision with information packs when booking it made everything run very smoothly, thank you.
We would strongly recommend this villa and give the villa 5 stars.

Our 2nd Visit to this Great Florida Villa.
A lovely stay in Davenport again. Having rented this villa before we knew what to expect. Dealing with Allan the owner has been easy and he always answers my many and varied queries promptly. It was lovely to be back in the familiar villa but also good to see the various upgrades that have changed like the extensive lounge patio furniture. This time we visited in April and Allan organised for the pool heating to switched on which was really worthwhile as we could use the pool even in the morning and evenings when the sun went down. It is comforting to know that all the appliances work and the house and patio area was bug free and very clean.
The villa is located in Davenport about 20 mins from Disney and 30 mins from Orlando. We like staying this short distance away from the main areas as we find the villa so much larger than anything nearer to the attractions. It is so peaceful after a tiring and long day at the busy parks and we can spread out and use the pool and outside area. The estate is part of a golf course with the villas located around the course it has a very friendly and calm atmosphere. As a family we especially like the tennis courts on site which have been renovated in the last year or so and the surface is perfect. There is also play areas for children (but ours are teens now) and lots of wildlife around to spot – we saw a family of otters running down to one of the many lakes on the golf course, an armadillo in our front garden, an array of little lizards that my daughter still loves trying to catch and of course an occasional alligator in the lakes. we enjoyed our Pool days and also spent a lot of time in the garage playing the table top football which became hotly contested as well as using the large pool table. Teenagers were content with the WiFi as well as the TV selection and my Husband loved the gas fired BBQ.
Davenport is well located just between the interstate 27 and 17 as well as really close to the interstate 4. As well as the obvious attractions we also went to crazy golf, fossil hunting by canoe on Peace River, kayaking up Shingle Creek and an amphibious driving experience with Mucky Ducks. All these places were easily accessible from the villa. For a meal out locally we went to Ovation on Interstate 27 and only ¾mile away from the Ridgewood Lakes entrance using Uber taxis. About a mile the other way on the 27 is a Publix and shortly after that is a Walmart (where we traditionally purchase all our park tickets) so its easy to get everything you need.
Overall the villa did exactly what we wanted for our two family stay. We can Thoroughly recommend this Villa and we will stay there again in the future.
Thanks once again for letting us use the villa.

FANTASTIC VILLA IN GREAT LOCATION
Just a quick note to say a big thank you Allan and Helen for kindly having us stay at their wonderful Florida home for a second time.
Again we could not fault anything, from the seamless booking process and communication with Allan to our stay at his home it was just FANTASTIC !!!
The house is kept immaculately clean, the beds are very comfortable and outside pool area being south facing over looking a small lake and the golf course is superb, and to top it all
off the weather we got for our holiday was the best we have ever had in all our trips at this time of year to Orlando.
If anybody is considering booking a Florida house for their holidays then look no further, you will not be disappointed if Allan and Helens home is your choice.
PS If your like good pizza then visit Dora's pizza shop.....Amazing !!!!!

This is an Amazing Villa !!!!
We were so lucky to find this amazing villa, the owners are brilliant, we had to find accommodation very quickly and Allan & Helen got us in his villa within 2 hours with all of the information sent out straight away, they are very professional owners.
The Villa itself was beautiful, everything about this villa is amazing the pool, location(easy to find) managerment company couldn't do enough for us. Children loved the slide and pool, the pool safety net across pool area made it stress free as children could go outside and we would not have to worry about accidents happening. We were there over Christmas and had the Christmas tree up which made it extra special. This villa is a Clean and a well equipped villa, the owners should be proud of their lovely home and thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our holiday amazing.

Beautiful Florida Villa In Secure gated community
We have not long returned from a fantastic three weeks holiday in Allan and Helen’s villa on Ridgewood Lakes and we all had a very enjoyable time. The villa is spacious and well equipped with more or less everything you need for a holiday home. The highlight for us was the large swimming pool and Jacuzzi which were perfectly heated and a lovely place to spend time relaxing watching the beautiful Florida sunsets, and the golfers as they passed by. As we were in Florida in unseasonably hot weather, the air conditioning proved to be very useful and kept the villa at a comfortable temperature especially at night-time. The location of the villa is ideally positioned to enjoy all the theme parks and then return to the peace and tranquility of Ridgewood Lakes during the evening. There are plenty of restaurants in the area plus supermarkets to stock up with groceries only a couple of miles away. Hopefully we will return in the not too distant future to enjoy using Allan and Helen’s villa again.”

We just wanted to thank you for providing us with your amazing villa for our family holiday, The Pool is Massive and the slide was a first for us, we have stayed in many villas before and never had one with a pool slide :)
The villa itself was spotless, very clean. We enjoyed the odd downpour but the covered area within the pool kept us nice and dry, The villa has plenty of comfortable space and the TV is easy to operate with a plethora of channels to enjoy..
Bedrooms are great, loads of storage too..
Overall the villa is amazing..

Hello The Bodle Family,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a great review which is very much appreciated, we are pleased to hear that your family all had a great time and we look forward to having you stay with us again in the not to distant future.
Lovely, homely villa
We've just returned from a 2 week stay in this lovely villa. We booked 18 months in advance and had great communication from Allan. Nothing was too much trouble.
We had a slight mishap on arrival in that the alarm had been set and we'd not been given a code for it. But this was soon sorted by a phone call to the people who look after the villa who didn't mind a very late night call!
The villa was spacious yet homely. There were plenty of towels provided and we managed to get all our washing done and dried prior to coming home thanks to the great washing line in the warm garage!
We didn't have time to use the pool table or dart board etc but it all looked great. Bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely, clean and spacious.
The large pool with slide is a highlight and we made good use of it and the hot tub. Perfect to unwind after busy days!
Would definitely stay again.

Thanks Steph for your lovely endorsement of our Florida villa, apologies regarding the alarm system activation, security is important to us and our guests as you will appreciate, Helen & I were pleased to hear that our Management Team in Orlando managed to get it sorted quickly, we have now updated guest booklet which provides information on Alarm entry, each guest will have their own four digit code which will remain only throughout their stay and updated for each guest.
We look forward to having you stay with us again.
Most comfortable beds we have ever slept in !!
I would like to say that this villa was 5 Star.*****
We spent 2 weeks in June in this beautiful home with my husband and 3 children aged 15, 12 and 9.it was our first time in America as a family. This home is in a safe, beautiful and quiet gated community. It was a joy to return to after a long day at the parks. Perfectly located just 20 mins from the parks. The pool and pool area just bliss to relax in.
All the amenities you could want in a home and maintained to a very high standard. Most comfortable beds we ever slept in away from home! We couldn't recommend this home highly enough. You wont be disappointed.

This is an Amazing Family Villa !!!
It's difficult to know where to start, This villa pretty much as it all. It's incredibly spacious and comfortable, Everything has been provided for the holiday maker in mind, The beds and furniture are exceptionally comfortable and the emperor bed in the master bedroom room is amazing, however The Pool is where this villa tops all others, It's a good 40ft in length and has a large deck area with plenty of room for the family, The location is great, quiet, peaceful and Secure, The fact that it is a gated community is a massive benefit, Getting to the Parks is very straight forward although I would have to say Interstate 4 seems to always have traffic so allow a little extra time, For a family holiday I can't think of a better villa. Oh yes nearly forgot there at a host of pool toys along with a very nice pool table to keep the little ones and the big ones occupied, We hope to return in the future and look forward to booking with Allan and Helen again.

Fab Family Villa with huge swimming Pool !!
Further to your phone call to me this morning both my family and myself would like to thank you and Helen for a wonderful three week holiday in your fantastic villa, and it goes without saying or repeating everything that the previous reviews have stated there is nothing further that any family would want i.e. 10 out of 10, my two granddaughters and my two year old great granddaughter absolutely loved the massive pool and slide as did my wife, daughter, and not forgetting myself lol.
The spa also was great after a swim and a day out at the parks which are not too far from the villa, The furniture around the pool was ample enough for all the family to relax around the pool or lay down and catch the sun which is south facing.
As for facilities inside your villa there is nothing more that a family would want and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a wonderful stay whilst visiting all the parks,once again many thanks Allan and Helen.

Thank you for the use of your amazing villa on Ridgewood Lakes.
We were recommended by one of your previous clients to stay here & we were not at all disappointed.
We really liked the idea of being on a safe and gated community, which gave us that extra peace of mind.
The villa itself was perfect, everything you need for a home from home holiday experience, the large pool area went down extremely well from my two grandsons, who insisted on going in before & after our trips to the Parks !!
We will be back again & no guesses for where we’ll be staying !! :)

Best Villa to Book in Florida for a family holiday
As usual we had a great holiday at your lovely home in Davenport, so close the all the parks, shops and restaurants – oh and did I mention shopping! The actual complex is amazing, fantastic security on a gated development so it is really safe, located right on a golf course with an amazing nature reserve, we had not investigated this on previous visits but the boys (big and small) did, they loved it, and saw two or three alligators which made the kids day! We loved the golfers as the pool looks out to a hole and the golfers were always friendly and offered a wave as they went past on their buggies.
The house is so comfortable it really is a home from home. It has everything you need for a great holiday and more, We experienced a little problem to start with as the air-conditioning broke down, but we knew that this was unavoidable and was sorted as soon as was possible, We asked for fans and the managing agents sorted that out quickly for us, they are a credit to you, Karen was so lovely nothing was too much trouble.
The beds are so comfortable, I slept so well (might have been all the walking in the theme parks) but the beds helped! Masses of storage space for all that shopping, did I say that the shopping is amazing? The bathrooms were great, Lots and lots of towels to use and great kitchen and laundry facilities, I love the large washing machine and dryer… I would love these at home and it was great to be able to take home clean clothes, no laundry when you get home, a real bonus .
Our grandkids loved the pool in fact it was hard to get them out when we had a rest day. The alarm on the pool door is brilliant, no sneaking out for the kids when an adult is not about and make sure you close it behind you or the alarm will sound! The Jacuzzi was used every single day, one tip for new guests would be to make sure that they opt to get the pool heated in the more chillier months so you get to experience the pool it is massive with a slide which the boys loved.
The games room was a huge hit too but we had to drag the kids in on more than one occasion when they started to argue over the pool table !!
I really cannot rate this property enough, it will make your holiday so special, what are you waiting for go ahead and make that booking.

We have recently stayed in this beautiful home twice now, it has been upgraded since our last visit with homely touches and really nice decor. We love this villa as when ticking all the things we want from a villa this house always comes up in our searches, It has a brilliant pool huge in fact , lots of lovely outdoor space and a shute which we all like a go on into the pool.
My favourite part of the day is first thing in the morning when the early golfers are out, I sit outside with my coffee and take in the morning sunshine and watch them play.
The villa and grounds are impeccably maintained and if you need anything or any help at all the owner has someone on site to resolve any issues you may have during your stay.
We love that the villa is near our favourite chop house which is called Mannys it's totally amazing if you love your steaks.
All in all this is truly a brilliant villa to stay in and in such a fantastic area and location.

Beautiful Peaceful Villa !!
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail to say thank you for having us at your beautiful villa. We all had a wonderful holiday and were very sad to leave on Friday.
The pool and spa was certainly a hit with everyone especially our two daughters who very nearly learnt to swim unaided, It was such a lovely peaceful location, one of the best we have stayed in and it was so nice to meet your neighbour (Canadian gentleman who's name we never caught) and watch the golfers go by on a lazy day in the sun. Can you tell I'm still dreaming of being there?

SUPERB HOME FROM HOME !!
We stayed in this beautiful house for the Christmas holiday period of 2016 and what a great time we all had.
Right from the moment we arrived we felt right at home, the house is so nice, immaculately clean inside and outside with so much space we could not fault a thing . The heated pool is fantastic, our kids would spend the day in it and there was a super bbq for your alfresco dining.
The house location is simply fantastic and so close to the I 4 for easy access to the beaches on the Gulf coast or the attractions in Orlando
There are also some great places to eat within 3-4 miles of the house and the estate in which the home is located is absolutely beautiful , I loved my morning runs around it , the grounds are so well looked after, and nobody passes you with out saying Hello. If golf is your thing then it is right outside your doorstep .
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Allen and Helen for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and without hesitation we would recommend this home to any family looking to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer ...this place was AMAZING !!!!!!

Great Villa with fantastic rear views.
We have visited Florida and the USA for over 25 years and this is one of the best rental villas we have used. The villa is in a great location and is both very safe and secure with a manned gatehouse. For golfers the villa backs onto the 4th fairway of Ridgewood Lakes Golf Club and the green fees at the golf club are very reasonable - $15 in the afternoon !
The standard of furnishings and cleanliness in the villa is very high and it is obvious that Allan and Helen have invested in the property as a second home and not just a rental opportunity. The pool area and lanai is very spacious and great for relaxing away from the theme parks and shopping malls.
We have no hesitation in recommending the villa to our friends and neighbours.
Thanks again for allowing us the privilege of using your property.

We have been to Orlando on a few occasions previously so had a bit of experience of the area so we knew where to start looking when we talked the group into going again! This villa stood out beyond all others on the website and we were delighted when it was available for our selected dates. The information we received was very helpful and everything about the booking and lead up was simple. The kids had studied every sq inch of the villa on VR360 before going so it felt like we already knew the place inside out when we arrived!. The photos certainly did it justice as it is a simply superb property in such a great location. The serenity of the golf course at the rear of the villa is incredible and we all enjoyed the visits from the local wildlife whilst enjoying the amazing pool and outside areas. Everyone said their beds were extremely comfortable and the lounge area so cosy. The place was spotlessly clean and Betty, the near neighbour who is there on hand to assist with anything if required, was very helpful. It is by far the best property we have stayed in and would recommend it to anyone. We would certainly love to stay there again.

Booking this villa was made so easy by Allan, he was more than helpful over the phone & answering emails, we would have booked again this year but our dates were already taken.
On arriving at Ridgewood Lakes the gated entrance was very impressive however as it was dark we didn't realise how beautiful the surroundings inside were until the next morning, the whole Development is kept to a very high standard.
The villa itself was exactly as described, very spacious, clean & tidy with nice quality furniture, comfy beds everything you need inside & out.
The pool area is lovely & peaceful & not overlooked except for the occasional golfer or passing wildlife however with the white netting around the bottom it makes it very private. The pool lighting was lovely & relaxing & we enjoyed several evenings in the jacuzzi watching the sun set.
We would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing family stay.
Thank you again Allan & Helen.

Hi Michael & Family,
Many thanks for your endorsement of our Florida Villa, we appreciate you taking the time to write a lovely review, We are so sorry that we were unable to accomodate you on your next visit to Florida Our villa really does book up very quickly and we do urge interested clients to try and book as early as possible to avoid dissapointment.
This Villa is Truly amazing.
Hi Allan & Helen, the three of us are just back from our second stay at your little "piece of Heaven" on Ridgewood Lakes. Staying the second time has been even more special as we know that every time we take junction 55 on Interstate 4 that we will shortly arrive at the manned security gates and then drive slowly through the beautifully manicured surroundings of Ridgewood Lakes Golf Course until we arrive relaxed at 1204 Golf Course Parkway, You truly have a gorgeous, private setting there and the time and care you have spent kitting 1204 out and maintaining it really shows, It is also great that the villa is looked after by a local couple living on Ridgewood Lakes who provide a backup to you and your clients that cannot be matched by an impersonal management company, we have already planned visit number Three for Christmas 201 :) and we are so much looking forward to it, Thanks again Allan & Helen for letting us have your piece of Heaven for our holiday. J, L & H (We highly recomend this Villa) (Ireland)

This is a Fab Florida Villa !!
The villa is exactly as described. The booking process was simple and efficient with Allan replying very quickly to any emails, The pool area at the villa is very big and plenty of space and seating to relax in either sun or shade, It’s also very quiet as not overlookedto the rear except for some occasional passing golfers. The villa itself is spacious and was clean, tidy and ready for our arrival - thank you Allan for allowing us a later check out and the chance to catch some last sun before our long flight home. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, found no fault and would highly recommend booking the villa for your Orlando holiday.

Thank you Robert & Karen for your lovely kind words we are pleased to hear that you all had a great time in our Florida Villa and look forward to welcoming you all back at some point in the near future.
Visited April 16 and was just as lovely as last time, as soon as we arrived it was like coming home.
Betty was as helpful as always, nothing was to much trouble. The buggy in the villa came in very useful for a tired grandson and with the additional pushchair Betty let us borrow, we did not have to buy or hire one.
For my 18 month old granddaughter the pushchair was really useful and much appreciated. The Pool was well used and we had plenty of fun in it. The location is perfect, especially after a day at the Parks it was great to return to some where so peaceful. Everything was excellent. Thank you to Allan, from the time we booked to the time we arrived you made sure our holiday went smoothly. Many thanks this is always a place we will return

A Florida Gem
What can I say, the review from the Lavery family says it all. We have also been regular visitors to Florida for 20 years and stayed in various villa communities. This villa is one of the best we have stayed in, it's not your average rental property. It is everything you want from a holiday villa, clean, well stocked, excellent pool area. The week before we arrived the owner Allan added more outside seating, which improves the property even more. Allan the owner was very helpful with the booking and any requests I had. Betty the management rep on site, is a lovely women, very attentive and helpful if you need her advice. We will definitely be returning to this villa again in the future.

Thank you so much for your lovely endorsement of our Florida villa, we take great pride in the cleanliness of our properties, this villa is one of our best and books up very fast, thank you for your kind words which we trust will assist other families in their decision to book this villa.
We stayed at 1204 Golf Course Parkway for 2 weeks in November 2015. We have been regular visitors to Florida for over 20 years and we have stayed at Ridgewood Lakes several times, in other villas. We can honestly say that Allan and Helen's villa is one of the best we have rented. The villa is furnished to a high standard and is immaculately clean and well maintained. The pool area is beautiful and well furnished with plenty of seating and sun beds. I can only echo the other reviews and we liked the villa so much we have booked again for 2016 !

Florida Holiday 2015
We stayed at the Villa for 2 weeks from the 15th September 2015 with the family (3 of us in total) We booked directly with the owners Allan & Helen and when we arrived the villa was spotless & extremely well kept, it was perfect for us and we would highly recommend families to stay here. The pool area was great to relax in after a long day at the parks which were about 20 mins to Disney.
The area that the villa is located in is absolutely lovely & with welcoming neighbours and it was such a lovely quiet & safe spot to stay.
This is one of the best villas we have stayed at and we would consider staying there again in the future, the location of the villa is brilliant for visiting the Parks with some of the Parks just 30 minutes away and some local supermarkets and shops very close by.

Fantastic Villa, Fabulous Holiday location.
We have just returned from an amazing 14 day holiday at 1204 Golf Course Parkway, The villa itself and the surrounding areas were fantastic and gave us the correct balance between the parks and the chance to relax in the peace and quiet of such picturesque surroundings and my husband loved the golf course.
The villa interior is of an extremely high standard and you can tell it has been very well cared for and was also absolutely immaculate, The photographs definitely don't do it justice.
The large outside area. pool and slide again were fantastic and would suit all ages, especially with the safety fence, Allan & Helen the owners use a local couple Betty and Glen who take care of the property and live around the corner on Ridgewood Lakes, they are just great, they are extremely welcoming and accommodating no matter what the request is, Allan the owner made the whole booking process seamless and easy, and every request or question that we had was dealt with promptly.
It was a delight to stay in this villa and as a frequent visitor to Florida it is one we shall recommend and return to ourselves in the future.

"What a wonderful villa"
We stayed with two couples and 3 young children. The villa is immaculate and beautifully maintained. The photographs on line can never do it enough justice.
Fantastically situated close to Disney but quiet enough to relax after a busy day at the parks.
The pool is better than you will find anywhere nearby and couldn't be safer for little ones.
I cannot recommend it highly enough for a great family holiday."

Thank you Rebecca & Family, Thank you for your kind words of endorsement, choosing a Florida holiday Villa is so important, we purchased this one because of its beautiful tranquil & safe gated location, we are so pleased to hear our guests endorsing our home, we look forward to you returning.
Excellent Villa in a Beautiful Location.
1204 Golfcourse Parkway is a delightful villa in very pleasant surroundings and although thoughtfully chosen from many similar properties still surpassed our expectations! From the soft welcoming lamp lights (switched on by Betty) for our late evening arrival, the cool and spotlessly clean interior, wonderful pool with child-proof mesh safety screens, we were thrilled and able to relax straightaway as we cooked an impromptu light supper! The kitchen appliances are all easy to use and well stocked with plenty of glasses and crockery. We felt so at home we even managed to cook two Sunday roast dinners during our holiday! The A/C was a welcome respite from the outdoor temperatures and it worked perfectly throughout our stay (we were always careful to close the external door!)
All in all the villa was the perfect place to relax in between visits to the Parks and other Florida attractions. The pool and tub were bliss and our two young grandchildren loved swimming in the warm water. The owners and Betty go out of their way to provide an excellent service and it has been our privilege to enjoy staying in their villa this summer 2015.

Thank you Keith & Family,
Your review confirms how Serious we are in ensuring that our villa meets the most demanding of needs, Not all Florida villa are the same and you do get what you pay for, Testimonials like this are testament to the high standards that we set ourselves (thank you)
Absolutely perfect for a family holiday to Disney
The images don't do justice, it is immaculate throughout, spacious, comfortable, extensively equipped; it had everything we needed. No concerns for our kids (5+3 YRO) in terms of safety & layout. The pool is better than others we saw on the estate & kids love the slide, perfect location: 60 mins from Tampa, and on average 15-20 mins to Magic Kingdom. The estate is spotless, secure, close to 2 supermarkets, gas stations, & places to eat. Owners: superb with info prior to arrival, booking process etc. We already want to return, and recommended it to friends. Thanks for the best family holiday.

Coming to the end of a two week stay at this fantastic villa, we have been to Florida a dozen times and I can honestly say this is the best every villa, great secure location, brilliant layout, so comfortable and has everything you need. Would not hesitate in recommending the villa to family and friends. One tip, in the cooler months book the pool heating, we did and our boys would have slept in the pool if they could! Many thanks to Allan and Helen for letting us stay in their beautiful home.

Hi Allan and Helen,
We have just arrived home from our three week stay at your gorgeous villa
We had an absolutely fabulous and relaxing time in your villa, 1204 is really such a credit to you - it is a really lovely home in a fantastic & safe gated development - we even loved the 4/5 minute drive in and out from H'way 27 the entrance into Ridgewood Lakes is so manicured and beautiful unlike other homes that we have stayed in.
The setting of the Villa is lovely as you have a Southern aspect, are not overlooked and the lake and golf fairway make a lovely backdrop all day.
Your Caretakers Betty and Glen were really nice and very helpful - Betty even came to see us off yesterday which was very nice of her.
We would like you to pencil us in for Summer 2016 - around the end of July again - if you can take a reservation that far ahead?
Thanks once again for making our Florida holiday so memorable. Jim, Louise and Holly Dillon - Ireland.

Superb Florida Villa
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Florida. The Villa was superb, spotless and very easy to find, and ideally located for all Orlando's main attractions. Beautifully spacious and well laid out, it was extremely well equipped for a relaxing holiday, right down to the electric mixer etc in the kitchen.
The pool area is very impressive, with good sized pool and jacuzzi and is beautiful to sit by all lit up at night, whilst listening to buzz of the wildlife.
Superb bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms, along with games room make this villa very special, we will definitely return.

Great spot on Ridgewood Lakes
Hi Allan & Helen,
We have sadly been home from Florida for a week now, we had a great holiday. The villa was really nice and in a great spot on Ridgewood Lakes. We met Betty on our second day and she couldn't of been more helpful, a really lovely lady.
We would highly recommend this villa which is located just off highway 27 and just a few minutes from Disney on a private safe and gated community with lots of nature trails and wildlife, the villa has a private rear outlook facing the golf course and lake views, The swimming pool is the best we have ever had and we would highly recommend booking the golf cart as it made our stay and gave us greater access around this unique and beautiful community.
We will definatley book with you again.

Fabulous Florida Villa
Dear Allan & Helen
Just to let you guys know that we had a fantastic time at your villa.
This was our 9th time in Florida, every time we have been there, we have rented a villa and I have to say without any doubt,
your villa was the best we have had.
The villa itself is so well equiped, comfortable and the location was absolutely breathtaking. Ridegewood lakes really is a hidden gem.
Some mornings I would sit out at the pool area and watch the turtles crossing the golf course, looking on to the lakes at the back of the villa was just lovley.. It was great looking on to these views and not look on to other villas as we have previous.ly done.
Having the opportunity of your golf buggy was amazing just to go out and get up close with the rest of the wildlife around this beautiful nature style reserve. It's was amazing !!
It was also great to have your management on the same estate, which mean't no queing at management companies when we got off a long flight nor large security deposits to the management companies.
Betty & Glen the house caretakers came and introduced themselves and told us if we have any issues or wanted to know anything they would be more than happy to help.. We didn't need them as the villa was perfect but lovely to know they are there for us.
Perfect villa for comfort, views and privacy and would highly recommend to others & thank you for being so helpful & accomodating for our
Margaret Charlie & Brandon.

A Perfect Place to Stay
We have just come back from our stay in this villa. We have rented many villas in Orlando over the years and this is one of the best we have stayed in. Everything was near perfect and we settled in very quickly. Alan the owner provides everything you need to make your stay perfect. The management company which is run by Betty are also on hand locally if you need anything. Everything looks exactly as it does in the photos and sitting by the swimming pool watching the wild life was totally relaxing. The area is very quiet and is in a gated community so feels very safe. It was wonderful to come back to after a long day and felt like home from home. We would have no hesitation in returning to this villa.

wow what a lovely review !! thank you so much, please come back to us next time we enjoyed having you.
Great 3 weeks
Spent 3 great weeks at this lovely villa in August 2012. THe owners Alan and Helen clearly take great prode in their property. We had a couple of small teething problems which could not have been resolved any quickee by Alan in the UK and his excellent support team, led by Betty (who lives locally).
Everything in the villa works and is cleaned spotlessly on arrival. Our kids loved the pool, especially the slide, although we were a little dissapointed to find the pool table has gone from the games room.
Ridgewood Lakes is a lovely quiet place with 24 hour security so you feel very safe and secure at all times, it is certainly one of the best places to stay in the Orlando area.
Travel to all the main attractions takes less than 30 mins and you can find most things e.g. supermarkets and restaurants within a fairly short drive.
Definitley recommend the giant wallmart to the south of the property and Mnnys Chophouse a greatet local steak and BBQ retaurant.
Highly recommended and we awill return for another visit for sure.

This villa is a little Gem
Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in this fantastic villa.
Ridgewood Lakes is undoubtedly the most amazing place to stay, hidden amidst the lush golf course greens and lakes located just off highway 27 within a safe and gated community.
Your home is well decorated with lovely furnishings, the home was very clean and our two children loved the super wide pool and its slide whilst we all enjoyed the lovely private rear views onto the golf course particularly my husband who enjoyed a few games on the championship course whilst we were there (this was unlike our last villa which faced other houses and pools) this was heaven..
This villa is a little gem.
Once again thank you so much for making our holiday special, we will defiantly be booking with you again next year.
