Our spacious, privately-owned villa can be your base for a memorable holiday in the sun. The villa has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 separate living areas which can accommodate up to 10 in comfort.
How better to relax after a busy day in the parks than in our lovely villa with large deck and pool, enjoying an uninterrupted lake view' We've also added a 5-man hot-tub adding even more luxury to your vacation!
Ever booked a villa through a tour operator, only to be disappointed that your villa wasn't private and didn't enjoy a lake view like the picture in the brochure' With our villa you are guaranteed spectacular, uninterrupted views over the beautiful Town Center Lake.
Our double garage has been converted into a baseball-themed Games Room with an 8ft professional slate pool table, Air Hockey and Foosball.
All the attractions of Central Florida are within easy reach - Disney World is just 10 minutes away, while the Universal Theme Parks, Sea World and International Drive are 25 minutes away.
There is a large Publix Supermarket, a 24-hour McDonalds, a pizzeria and a Walmart Pharmacy 2 miles away and Highway 192 is just an 8 minute drive, offering hundreds of shops and family restaurants.
There are dozens of golf courses within easy reach, including the beautiful championship courses of Champions Gate (designed by Greg Norman) and Reunion (designed by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus) just 2 minutes away. These are located on the scenic route to Disney through the Old Lake Wilson Preserve on Highway 545.
In our opinion, this peaceful sub-division is Orlando's best kept secret. Bridgewater at Town Center is a small, quiet and secure residential area containing only 49 homes. Situated on the scenic Old Lake Wilson Preserve on Highway 545 just 25 minutes from Orlando International Airport and 50 minutes from Sanford, the location is perfect for Disney which is a 10 minute drive away.
You can take the 545 through the beautiful golf resorts of Reunion and Champions Gate or the I-4 is only two minutes away. The I-4 feeds into Disney and also takes you quickly to International Drive, Sea World, Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios and Wet'n Wild.
Close to the entrance of Bridgewater is a gas station with convenience store, take-out food, DVD/video rental and newspapers. There is a bank with cashpoint, Publix Supermarket, a pharmacy, a Chilis restaurant, a pizzeria, a Chinese restaurant and a 24-hour McDonalds nearby at Champions Gate. There are 2 huge Wal-Mart stores in the area, both within 15 minutes of the villa, one on the HW 27 just north of the 192 and the other at the junction of the Osceola Parkway and Poinciana Boulevard.
The famous Highway 192 is an 8 minute drive, offering hundreds of shops and family restaurants. For some retail therapy the Premium Outlets are just twenty five minutes away while the Belz Factory Outlet, Millenia Mall and the Florida Mall are a thirty five minute drive.
Tampa and Busch Gardens are approximately seventy minutes west on Interstate 4 while Daytona and Cape Canaveral are about an hour away heading east.
The villa is located on Saddle Ridge Drive which is a private, quiet no through road on the banks of one of Central Florida ''s 554 natural lakes. The beautiful Town Center Lake is at the centre of the subdivision and our villa enjoys spectacular views over the lake from the living area and pool. You may be lucky enough to meet some of the local wildlife such as snapping turtles, armadillos or the numerous bird life. The location is peaceful and has the feel of the countryside as you relax in the pool; it ''s hard to imagine that all the attractions of Orlando are only minutes away!

Orlando Vacation Home
April 10, 2013
We rented a home in Orlando area in March -April 2013, we were dissapointed with the home and service, we were not able to move into the home before 5:30 pm on the day of arrival which was a pain, when we finnaly moved in we found the house dirty, holes in the walls desperate need of a paint job, dirty carpet and leaking plumbing in the kitchen, it was a little cool so we requested the pool heater to be turned on and was informed it was broken surprise surprise, not a luxury pool home, (a HOME ON THE RUN DOWN SIDE WITH A NON HEATED POOL)

We stayed at this home in Jan of 2013 and there is not one thing we could say that would be bad! The location was great, house was great, pool and hot tub were great and the canal in the back to which the turtles came to every day was just awesome! We had great interactions with the home owner and our Vacation was just great! We will certainly consider returning to this property on our next vacation.

Perfect Place to stay!
March 19, 2013
Our first ever trip. We took out family of 6 to Disney and wanted a place that was large enough for our family and accomidated our needs. We were looking to be close to all the parks. This house is only 15 minutes away. The pool and home was clean. We spent a lot of time in the garage playing air hockey and pool. I would definately stay at this home again. And that is exactly what it felt like, home. Perfect place to stay.

I Want To Go Back
March 10, 2013
When I was booking my reservation, everything went very well. Giselle, the owner, was very informative and communication was excellent throughout process. My husband and I have been going to Florida for approximately 15yrs every February. He passed away. This was a first for me going on vacation alone. (Friends were not arriving until the second week.) I was a bit intimidated trying to find the home in the dark and did get lost twice. By the time I got there, I was frustrated. We have always rented homes in the Rte 27 area. I was not familiar with this area at all. Now, in no way is this stating it was a bad area, just unknown to me. It ended up being a great area. It was quiet, there was a place to walk/jog, playground for children if you have them. The closest store is a 7-11. I plan ahead and pick up things when out. There are Publix/Walmarts, but, they are a few miles away. Next, the home. I know when searching what amenities I am looking for, so, no surprises. The master suite had a kingsize bed, which was very comfortable. The bathroom was oversized and plenty of room to move. I, especially, enjoy the tub with a nice book. Plenty of closet space. I looked in the other rooms, but, did not pay too much attention to them. My friends that stayed there did not have any complaints. There is plenty of sitting room in the home,dishwasher, washer/dryer (the dryer takes a few rounds to get the clothes dry - it may need a new element.) I did not notify anyone - just hung the clothes out by the pool to dry. There are televisions in every bedroom. A radio/cd player throughout the home. Game tables in the garage and even some books and DVDs to watch. The pool is not as big as other homes I have rented and I did not use it much. Although, heated, it was not very warm. This is an issue every year that I have with pools. Most pools are on electric heat, timers, and are set at 80-85 degrees. Once the timer turns off, the pool cools down during the night, is cold in the morning, and has to start all over again. There is a separate hot tub, which we did enjoy. The hot tub is not connected to the pool, like many homes. Again, when like that, the hot tub does not get too warm either. This was a free standing tub, like I have at home, and the temp could go up to 104 like it should. A plus when renting this home. So, in closing, vacation was well. I enjoyed staying in this home and would rent again. Recommend to others

First Florida Vacation
February 25, 2009
The only way we can describe the ease and comfort of our stay at this home is with the word wonderful. This was our first trip to Florida and the beauty and style of this home was amazing. It had everything needed to make us feel at home and then some. The support provided by the local Management company was also excellent. I would recomend this home to anyone. Thanks for the great time.
09/23/07 Positive We had a fantastic time at Rhydian's Villa.The location was excellent, very quiet and picturesque, and very convenient for the theme parks and main highway.
On arriving at the villa we were very surprised at the size, although we had viewed the photos on many occasions it was much larger than anticipated. It was beautifully decorated and immaculate. We made use of all the facilities at the villa and thoroughly enjoyed the large swimming pool and hot tub. Our daughter loved her bedroom and felt very much at home, and we loved the master bedroom. The boys loved the games room and we all had fun playing air hockey!
The communication with Rhydian whilst reserving the villa was second to none.
This was the first time we have rented a villa, and we were so delighted with it we couldn't wait to tell our friends and family about it - I would reccommend this Villa to everyone I know and would love to return again on my next trip to Florida.

08/28/07 Positive I was hesitant renting a vacation home online but Rhidian made everything completely stress free. The home was super clean, the beds were very comfortable and the house was absolutely gorgeous!! We used the pool and hot tub every day (my husband and two of my kids actually chose to stay home and swim instead of going to the parks!!) The lake view was beautiful. Rhidian gave us a fantastic "back way" to get to the parks that had no traffic and took under 10 min - an easy, pleasant drive. My family and I were ultra pleased with your home and will definatley rent again when we come back ~ thank you so much! Lora

07/27/07 Positive My family and I had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is going to vacation in Florida. The house is convenient to all the major attractions.

07/16/07 Positive Just got back. We loved your house. There is nothing like relaxing in a nice big comfortable house after a day at the parks. We split every day in half and spent a couple of hours relaxing and resting up before heading out for the evening. The kids loved the pool and game room. One night they insisted on staying home because they were having so much fun. We used the hot tub to relax and rejuvenate our sore muscles almost every day.
06/20/07 Positive The Villa was wonderful! Absolutely beautiful. We had a terrific time and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. We will definitely keep you in mind for future visits to Disney. The children enjoyed the game room although they just used it on the first night. We came in too late every other night. We all seem to find time for the pool, whether it be at night or in the morning before heading to Disney. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub. What a big plus for any villa. Also, the drive the was really good; not much traffic. Once again thanks for everything. The Villa was everything you said it was, plus more. Your directions and instructions were excellent! Thanks you Rhidian and Nicola.

06/14/07 Positive Fantastic holiday, wonderful villa - would recommend it to anyone! It was great to be able to put the kids to bed in their own room with all the comforts of home and more - TV with playstation etc. Excellent facilities including a DVD players. FAB private pool, great to relax by in the evenings when the kids are in bed after a long day at Disney!!
Area felt safe and peacefull but also central to all the main attractions.

05/23/07 Positive We had a positively great time!! The home is quite nice - what a treat to come home instead of going back to a hotel :-) The hot tub and the game room were wonderful additions. The Griffiths are great communicators and made me feel welcome even before we left for our vacation. My first choice for my next vacation -
JoAnne Hougentogler, Smyrna, Delaware
04/29/07 Positive My family are very picky people and think they know how to improve almost everything, however, they were speechless at your villa. You have thought of everything for the kids, even books for the adults, amazingly clean and very well maintained. I was expecting a nice place, but we were overwhelmed with all of the amenities. Perfect location away from the madness, but so close that it makes it super easy to get to anything. Thank you again for your wonderful communication with us before our trip and we will definitely contact you again.

We've just returned home after our first vacation in the villa and had a great time. We managed to make some improvements to the villa during our stay as well as spending hours in the parks and enjoying the pool and hot-tub!
The double garage has now been converted into a baseball-themed Games Room with an 8ft professional slate pool table, Air Hockey and Foosball. We also added a 20" LCD TV/DVD in the Master Bedroom and a 15" LCD TV in the second (Queen) bedroom.
Rhidian's parents came with us and they thoroughly enjoyed their first visit to Florida. Having two living areas meant that they could enjoy some privacy when they needed it.
We have a busy time ahead with bookings and we hope all our guests enjoy their time in the villa as much as we did.
