and a David Leadbetter Golf Academy at nearby ChampionsGate. Even closer and within easy walking

The ChampionsGate Plaza which is only 3 miles away has a big Publix Supermarket, Walgreaves Pharmacy, McDonalds, Subway, a petrol station, banking facilities and other shops as well as other restaurants if you

want for example Chinese or Italian which can be delivered to Sandy Ridge.

Sandy Ridge is a short drive away from junction 58 of the I-4 which runs through the centre of Orlando and

and you can reach Walt Disney World in 10 minutes, and other parks and attractions in very little time.

These include Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Wide World of Sports, Sea World, Discovery Cove for

swimming with dolphins, Epcot, Universal Orlando together a selection of water parks such as

Disney's Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

great choice of dinner and shows in the Orlando area such as Arabian Nights, Medieval Times Dinner

and Tournament, Pirates Dinner Adventure and Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Shows.

A little further away :

If you want to top up your tan and relax on the beach you also have easy acess to the closest beaches

on the East or West coast namely Clearwater, St Petes, Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach. All are only about

1hour / 1 hr 15 away via the I-4.

Busch Gardens is worth a visit less than a hour away on the I-4 direction Tampa, and Kennedy Space

Centre where you can tour the rocket gardens & take a close up tour is popular and only an hour away.

So whether you want to relax by the pool, swim in the sea, work on your tan, play golf every day, shop till

you drop, experience the thrills of the theme parks, enjoy the water parks, watch a dinner show, swim

with the dolphins, ride in a hot air balloon, get close up with alligators, meet an astronaut ...YOU CAN!

"Well equipped villa with good facilities"

We booked the villa for 10 nights for a base to do the usual theme park trips. It is well placed for Disney, etc, but a bit further for the Universal ones so if you are only doing the latter you may prefer a villa nearer to Universal. The villa is well laid out with large bedrooms (two with en suite), and was very clean and well equipped - pool, games area with pool table, etc, washing machine and tumble dryer, 3.5 bathrooms, tvs in most rooms, etc. The pool is not huge (eg if you want to do lengths!), but for our kids it was great and especially so with the heat in August in Florida and they spent a lot of time in it. We had great customer service before booking the stay, and the instructions in the villa were clear as to what do if we had a problem (we didn't).

"Don't miss this beautiful Villa in a great location"

We really loved this Villa. It was very clean and is beautifully maintained. High quality furnishings, family friendly and a great oversized pool. Location is good - quiet, safe and quick to access main attractions. It really is only 10-15 mins to the gates of Disney. Great personalised booking service so very reliable, quick and easy. We highly recommend and we will certainly be back again soon!

"Large very comforable Villa"

The Villa was exactly as described and provided plenty of room and comfort for our party of 4 adults and 2 children. The children loved the pool and games in garage. Whilst it is well out in the countryside the good road network ensured that all the attractions were within appx. 30 mins. Would consider using again.

"I love this vacation home"

My family and I have stayed in this home three consecutive years and will continue to stay there anytime that we vacation in Orlando, Florida. The home was so clean and beautiful. The landlord & caretakers were fabulous. Our every need was met. this home was located close to shopping, attractions & restaurants. We feel safe when we stay at this villa. We are already planning another trip next year and will be staying at Joy Villa again. This home is perfect.

"Joy Villa....what a Joy!"

The Villa was absolutely spotlessly clean with fresh towels and laid out in such a manner that made you feel like the place was your own. There is plenty of space and the kitchen was well stocked with utilities. The washing machine and tumble dryer were both in fantastic condition and easy to use and infact any item that needed instructions was well catered for. All of the facilities were exactly as described and the pool made for hours of fun after long Disney Days for all of us (especially the kids!) The pool was cleaned on a weekly basis and was done with consideration in mind during our stay. The pack that you sent prior to our arrival made for a seamless transition.

All of the main attractions are within 10-15 mins of the villa and therefore a car is recommended but not strictly neccesary. A 3 minute drive from the villa and you have the use of a large supermaket which was very well stocked, a phamacy, fuel garage,haridressers, McDonalds and various other takeaway options. A further 2-3 mins and you reach Champions Gate which will cater for your every need.

All in all this was by far the best villa that we have stayed in and the people that own and run it were extremely helpful with everything that we asked.
