Sandy Ridge house description

There are hundreds of vacation homes to choose from - so what makes 'Dux Villa' so special ?

Dux Villa is a family owned home, not part of a generic portfolio. It has been personally furnished and is kept up to a high standard - as a family, we regularly stay in our home, enjoying every second of our vacation whilst we're here!

It has a 'South Facing' Private Pool & Spa, so enjoys the sun all day long, reducing the need for pool heating (although heating is available on request!). Nothing is worse than finding a vacation home with a pool area shadowed by the house!

It also includes a 'private' high speed broadband service provided by Verizon exclusively for Dux Villa, and not a shared, slow broadband service supplied by the community.

We use a respectable, family run reliable and friendly local management company to attend to all our guests needs - they are on hand 24 hours a day to help with any queries or emergencies you may have.

Finally, we are genuinely only 10 to 15 minutes away from Disney World, with quick access via either the I-4 or the 192, depending on your preference.

Before investing in our own vacation home, we learned quite quickly that 'you pay for what you get', and all these small details make a big difference - saving $10 a night on another home may turn out to be the biggest mistake of your vacation...

So, whether you are looking for a relaxing break or a fun filled Disney Vacation, our 4 Bedroom Vacation Home is ideal for a large family or two families!

The facts...

* Only 10 minutes from Disney World and local amenities, but set in a peaceful and safe residential area surrounded by Lakes and Woodland, our professionally managed villa provides the perfect 'home from home' when visiting the Orlando area.

* With two Master Bedrooms (one with a King Size Double and the other a Queen Size Double), both with their own private En-Suite Bathrooms, and two more Twin Bedrooms with a further shared Bathroom, our vacation home comfortably sleeps 8 people, so ideal for large or two family vacation.

* Our fully Air-Conditioned home includes a beautiful screened Private Heated Pool & Spa with a comfortable patio area, all South Facing, ensuring as much sun as possible!

* Our home also includes Free High Speed Wi-Fi Broadband throughout, a Full Size Table Tennis Table, a Play Station 2 Games Console with Games and TV's with XFinity Cable in all of the Bedrooms and the Living Area - so whatever your reason for vacationing in the Orlando area, you (and your children) can be sure of a relaxing, fun filled stay at Dux Villa!

* Built within a conservation area, Sandy Ridge is a peaceful, quiet and safe residential area popular with vacationers looking for a relaxing retreat, but ideally located for easy access to all the theme parks and local amenities - only 3 miles away from junction 58 of the I-4, 10 minutes drive from Disney World and within easy reach of several excellent championship Golf Courses, Sandy Ridge is the perfect location for all, from big families to a couple's getaway!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Dux Villa is a Family Vacation home, owned solely by three generations of our Family... We live in the UK but enjoy spending as much time in Florida as possible, for the weather, the attractions and the way of life (if only for a short vacation).

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandy Ridge:
                      This property, unlike many others available, is privately owned and is not part of a larger portfolio - we have 1 vacation home and do use it ourselves on a regular basis, so feel it has a personal 'homely' touch...

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In addition to the Private South Facing Heated Pool & Spa, the Wi-Fi, the Table Tennis Table, Playstation 2 and general amenities, our vacation home was built to a high standard and is treated to and kept to that high standard - as we regularly visit the home we would not want it any other way!
