One of the newer communities situated in the peacefulness of the orange groves that border CR532 and Old Lake Wilson Road. Sandy Ridge offers a variety of well-presented rental properties from the smaller single-storey 3 bedroom villas to the bigger 5 bedroom villas - all of which are built around a series of ponds and lakes.
Being aside from the hustle and bustle of the attractions, there are a number of golf courses in the local area - including the fantastic Championsgate, Mystic Dunes and Reunion courses.
With this area still being developed, the number of local shops and restaurants may be limited. The nearest supermarket for those everyday essentials is Publix, which is located just under 2 miles away at the intersection of South Orange Blossom Trail and Ronald Reagan Parkway. Head for a couple of miles towards Lake Wilson Road / Interstate-4, the eateries are more plentiful - namely: Pizza Hut, Wingstreet, Chilis, Beef O'Bradys. There is also another Publix supermarket and a 7-Eleven located alongside. You will also find more shops at Championsgate on CR532 and if you are looking for the nearest WalMart Supercenter, this is on US192 near to Medieval Times. Highway US192 also has an abundance of shops, restaurants and attractions.

Driving distances are not biased to any villa community.
Located south of the prestigious Walt Disney Reunion resort, the communities around ChampionsGate are some of the newer vacation home developments. With purpose built resorts surrounded by fantastic golf courses, lakes and open woodland, the area is fast becoming a must-stay location. However, as the area is still growing, local shops and restaurants are likely to be limited, which means a car is a must to get around.
