Wildflower Ridge Vacation Rentals

Wildflower Ridge Vacation Rentals - A Florida Travel Guide

The Wildflower Ridge Vacation Rentals Guide from Tripelli - A handy insight into the rental homes and villas in Wildflower Ridge, plus the nearby shops, restaurants & golf courses.

Wildflower Ridge in Davenport, Florida is a small vacation rental community consisting of 65 well established homes which are a mixture of residential and vacation rental properties. Wildflower Ridge was completed in 2006, making it one of Davenport's newer communities. The homes here are both single and double storey with 4 to 6 bedrooms and rental prices are aimed towards the middle sector of the market. Walt Disney World® is just over 20 minute drive away, so spending the morning at the parks, going home for a late lunch and a swim in the pool and then heading back to Disney for the evening firework display is vacation schedule the kids will love.

Staying at Wildflower Ridge

All of the Wildflower Ridge vacation rental villas are detached, one and two storey, single family properties which are all fully air conditioned. Although the Wildflower Ridge vacation rental homes differ in their design and in what they specifically offer, they tend to be well-equipped and spacious and have their own private lanai covered swimming pool and also can include a Jacuzzi.

The homes on the community range in size from 4 to 6 bedrooms with between 2,100 and 3,050 sq.ft of covered living space. Wildflower Ridge comprises a mix of both residential and individual, usually privately owned vacation homes. These tend to be well appointed and the larger homes will have multiple bedroom suites which suit multi family, or larger groups of guests. All the villas and homes come with fully equipped kitchens often with upgraded stainless steel appliances and stone countertops.

Due to the competitive nature of the vacation rental market, a lot of the Orlando area higher quality vacation rental homes, especially the more expensive properties, come equipped with a games room which may well feature some or all of the following: a pool table, table tennis, air hockey and arcade games, etc.

The vacation rental homes at the Wildflower Ridge are set in a well manicured, well maintained tropical Floridian landscape and staying in one of the vacation rental homes at Wildflower Ridge means that you'll be well situated for access to all Oralndo's theme parks and attractions.

Wildflower Ridge on Youtube

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Guide, we visited each of the communities in the Orlando area and in a lot of cases we also recorded a brief video of the community and uploaded it to Youtube. We did this on our visit to Wildflower Ridge, which you can see by clicking below. These videos are fairly short and are simply intended to give an impression of the community and provide potential guests with more of a feel for the neighborhood.

Reaching the Attractions from Wildflower Ridge

Whether it's Cinderella's Castle, The Chinese Theatre of Hollywood Studios, or the Tree of Life in the Animal Kingdom, you can't deny the appeal of these symbols of the magical lands of Walt Disney World®. As much as the Florida Peninsula has a stunning array of natural phenomena, it is the man made variety that draws millions of people to Florida each year.

Over the past 60 plus years, Orlando has built itself into the world's leading travel destination. The city's theme parks are predominantly behind that incredible transformation of the city. Theme parks are big business in Central Florida and they're spread geographically across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Wildflower 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 achievable on a day out. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The city can boast that it's one of the world's most renowned golf destinations in the world with many award-winning courses that are even stops on the PGA Tour. Even if you're not a scratch golfer, there is abundance of golf courses to suit all playing levels. If you're looking for a casual round of golf at an executive or par-3 course for the whole family, where you don't need to be too nervous about keeping up the pace or dress code, there's lots to choose from.

Shops and Restaurants Near Wildflower Ridge

If you've spent weeks dieting before arriving in Florida, then you might want to sit down before reading any further. I'm afraid we have some bad news for you as the entire area around Disney World® is crammed with restaurants and fast food outlets. So, the question you're going to be asking yourself is not ‘where to eat', rather it's ‘where do I start', or possibly ‘where do I stop'. When you drive out of Wildflower Ridge and drive around the local area, you'll soon come across a number of restaurants and fast food outlets, but the real concentration of eateries can be found on Highway 192. Here, you'll come across several dozen restaurants. So, no matter the kids want for dinner, you'll find it here. Most of the restaurants are chain restaurants, but you will find the occasional independently owned restaurant, but you'll have to search for them. The list we've compiled below is in no way meant to be exhaustive, but it does give you an idea of the restaurants and fast food outlets that are available: Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, 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, Logan's Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Macaroni Grill, Manny's Original Chophouse, Miller's Ale House, Moor, Olive Garden, On The Border, Outback Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Perkins, Pollo Tropical, Ponderosa, Red Lobster, Retro Station, Rosies Smokin Hot BBQ, Sakura Asian Fusion, Savion's Place, Sizzler, Shoneys, Sweet Tomatoes, Tarantino's Italian, Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is probably already out of date, as restaurants are regularly popping up around Disney World® and Universal Studios.

If you don't feel like driving too far and just want to pick up something locally, then there's a whole range of fast food restaurants nearby which include Arby's, Burger King, Checkers, Chick-fil-A, CiCi's Pizza, Cordovano Joe's Pizza , Crown Fried Chicken, Domino's Pizza, DQ Grill and Chill, Dunkin Donuts, KFC, Long John Silver's, McDonalds, Panda Express, Papa John's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and last, but not least, Wendy's.

Dining at Home
If you're thinking of cooking at the villa, then you'll want to find a supermarket. That's straighforward; there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a five minute drive of Wildflower Ridge. So, you'll never be too far away when you need to pick up that bottle of wine, or a few beers and the steaks for the poolside BBQ.

Non Supermarket Shopping
If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. Twenty minutes down the I-4 in the Tampa direction, you'll find Posner Park where you'll find an IMAX Movie Theater and a whole range of restaurants and stores including, Books-a-Million, JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Shopping for Apparel
If you want mall style, or more upscale shopping then you'll need to drive into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers great 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 options within a 30 minute drive, retail therapy is never too far away.

The Wildflower Ridge Weather

When staying in Florida, you'll never be too far from the ocean, so as a result, the general climate of the Sunshine state is partly determined by the ocean. In addition, the weather in the state is divided into two. The split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. In areas to the North of the lake, which is where Wildflower Ridge is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

When staying in a vacation rental in Wildflower Ridge,Davenport, then you should plan for weather ranging from warm and pleasant from October through until May, and extremely hot between June and September. Florida sees a lot of sunshine throughout the year and the temperatures rarely fall near or below freezing (0°C / 32F).

Visiting the parks outside of the summer months, means that you should experience dry and comfortable conditions. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.

Alternative Communities

Wildflower Ridge is a great place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which can be found within a few miles of Wildflower 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 Davenport and Clermont, you might want to consider Bella Toscana (the other community) and also Four Corners 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 Directions to Wildflower Ridge

With Orlando being the vacation capital of the world, it's the darling of the travel industry and so getting to Orlando is relatively easy. Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO) which is just 30 minutes from Wildflower Ridge. Additional scheduled airline flights also arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) which is a little over an hour's travel time away. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Wildflower Ridge, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Wildflower Ridge from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I-4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I-4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana. After just over a mile, turn right onto Lake Wilson Road and continue for a mile. Then turn left onto Polk 54/Ronald Reagan Parkway. After 1,5 miles, turn right onto County Road 547/Lee Jackson Highway. Then after half a mile, turn right onto Wildflower Ridge Boulevard and the Wildflower Ridge community is ahead of you.
