It is clean, spacious and beautifully presented and conveniently located to the theme parks, shops and restaurants."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Wishing Star Villa. From the minute we stepped in the door we felt at home. Myself and my sisters were delighted with the pool area, there was nothing nicer than coming home after a long day in the sun and having a dip in the pool! The house was absolutely spotless when we arrived, everything was in place, it was both a spacious and homely home. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is considering staying in Florida, it is in a lovely neighbourhood and in close distance to Disney which was our main destination each day! We are planning another trip soon and we would love to stay at the Wishing Star Villa again. Big thank you to Maureen and Ian for allowing us to stay in their lovely home!"

"Just recently back from our second stay at wishing star villa and once again it was amazing. Maureen was so helpful and quick to reply to all My Questions leading up to the holiday. Billy and Tara who look after the house over there were also really friendly and helpful and told us they were only a call away if we needed help with anything 😀. The house itself is beautiful and so well kept and huge which is great for relaxing after hectic days in the theme parks, it’s great to unwind in your own private pool 😃. Neighbourhood is really nice and safe. We all had an amazing time and would recommend wishing star villa 100% and we can’t wait to go back soon hopefully 😏😃"

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. However, if you 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. For those everyday essentials, there is a Publix supermarket and a 7-Eleven located alongside. Head towards Championsgate on CR532 for more shops 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.
