Sunset Ridge Vacation Rentals

Sunset Ridge Vacation Rentals - A Few Miles from Disney Orlando

Sunset Ridge is a gated vacation rental community of just over three hundred and eighty homes in Davenport, Florida. The community is located close to Highway 27 and comprised of a mixture of comfortable homes, which are often on good sized lots which provides for good levels of privacy. Sunset Ridge offers a comfortable retreat away from the theme parks and attractions of Orlando and is only twenty minutes from Walt Disney World®.

Homes in Sunset Ridge

Sunset Ridge has a mixture of residential and vacation rental homes. All homes are detached and set on reasonable sized lots. The vacation rental homes here are normally individually owned and managed. There are 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom homes with 2, 3 or 4 bathrooms. All homes have private screened pools, are fully air conditioned and have fully fitted kitchens which normally include all appliances. Some homes also have games rooms which are usually fitted with a pool table, air hockey and table tennis.

Reaching the Attractions from Sunset Ridge

Florida, and in particular, Central Florida is renowned as a world leader in tourism. But the jewel in the Central Florida's crown is the large number of attractions and natural resources it has available to tourists. These are predominantly spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Sunset Ridge. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is doable on a day trip. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

Shopping and Eating near Sunset Ridge

So, if you want to treat the kids to dinner, then we could probably name a restaurant or two that are within a ten to fifteen minute drive of Sunset Ridge. Whilst they are largely chain restaurants, they are incredibly convenient to get to from Sunset Ridge. So, take a look through this list of eateries that are in the area, including Applebee's, Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza, Golden Corral, IHOP, Joe's Crab Shack, Logan's Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Macaroni Grill, Manny's Original Chophouse, Miller's Ale House, Olive Garden, On The Border, Outback Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Perkins, Pollo Tropical, Ponderosa, Red LobsterSizzler, Shoneys, Tarantino's Italian, Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place and finally Zaxby's. But this list is by no means exhaustive.

Supermarkets
If eating at home is on the menu, then you'll have to find a supermarket nearby. Staying in a vacation rental at Sunset Ridge makes that relatively straightforward as there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a short drive of the community. So, when you make a last minute decision to have that BBQ, you'll always be able to pick up the supplies needed.

Other Shopping
If you're looking for something outside of supermarket shopping, then you'll have to drive a little further. A few miles west on the I-4 (towards Tampa), you'll find Posner Park where there's an IMAX theater, plus a selection of restaurants and shops which include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll want to drive east towards Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers a range of shopping options. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Sunset Ridge Climate

Because of the physical shape of the state, any location in Florida will not be too far from the ocean, so as a result, the weather everywhere in the Sunshine state is heavily influenced by that fact. Additionally, the state is climatically divided into two. The split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of Florida. Anywhere to the North of the lake, which is where Sunset Ridge, Davenport is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Sunset Ridge, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the months of June to September. They don't call it the Sunshine state for nothing, and in Florida the sun shines on most days and the temperature rarely ventures anywhere nearing freezing. This explains why over the years , the major theme parks have all made Florida, and in particular Orlando, their home.

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Alternative Similar Communities

Sunset Ridge is a popular place for a vacation and if you've found a home that you like the look of, then you should send off an inquiry about its availability and exact price. But it's always worth looking at other similar vacation rental home communities and resorts which might only be a mile or two away from Sunset Ridge and which might also be of interest. It's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clermont area, you might want to consider Calabay Parc (the other community) and also Calabay Parc at Tower Lake and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to limit the expenditure, then check out Crescent Lakes . And turning to the vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If you can spend a little more, then how about looking at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills or Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; establish your needs including the planned dates of travel and the number of you traveling before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving to Sunset Ridge

If you're flying into Orlando, then the chances are that you'll arrive at Orlando International Airport. However, with the explosion of tourism in Orlando over recent years, the city is now served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Sunset Ridge.

Most of the major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers far less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. Both airport offer both scheduled and charter services. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Sunset Ridge, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Sunset Ridge from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana. Keep right at the fork and go on to Champions gate Boulevard. Then turn right onto Ronald Reagan Parkway and after two miles turn right onto US27N.
