Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)
Currently live in Cheshire England but was born in the wonderful city of Liverpool.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Owner chose Sunset Lakes
We bought this property because we wanted to enjoy the wonderful weather and be close to the huge number of attractions that only the Orlando area can deliver. Yet we also wanted to be able to relax away from the hustle and bustle that such a vibrant environment can bring. Sunset Lakes provided exactly what we wanted, it's a quiet well protected gated community with a large percentage of permanent residents. Furthermore this property, backing on to the conservation land, is particularly quiet.
What makes this Villa unique
It really is so very quiet and tranquil even when around the pool we barely see or hear anyone.

Good villa, great location, great value, 4.5 + stars (not 4)
This is a good villa in a great location, the villa is spacious and has a good layout that suited our family of 4 with 2 teens as we each had a bedroom and bathroom so no arguments. I was a bit concerned on some of the previous reviews regarding cleanliness but needn't have been as the villa must have had a thorough clean since then as it was very clean, including drawers etc. The kitchen has everything that you are likely to need on holiday, the washer/dryer really useful and there were an abundance of towels available should you need them. The pool and area was nice and relaxing, backing onto trees so very little noise.
Location is great, close to supermarkets and a good range of restaurants a few minutes away by car.
We only spoke to management team on arrival day as Gary popped by to install a new dryer, he was really helpful and friendly so I would have no hesitation to contact him if we needed anything.
There are a couple of things that need an update (which is why I haven't given 5 star but really I would like to give 4.5+ stars) however there is nothing that should put anyone off booking.
-The vertical blinds, a lot of them don't work properly, this meant that we couldn't be bothered to open/close them after the first few times so left them closed so were a bit in the dark.
- The patio doors by the pool, the bracer bar was broken when we arrived although my husband managed to sort out however they are old and stiff and my 16 year old daughter struggled to open them, they could do with a bit of maintenance or replacing.
- The garage/games room could do with a bit of a clean and and it was very hot (I understand that this is not specific to this villa) unfortunately as the storms were quite long lasting during our trip we wanted to use but we could only go in for very short bursts - I think a fan would make this more useable.
These points however are minimal and I think that given the space, facilities and location the villa is very good value for money and a great place for an Orlando holiday.
Super close to the parks, nice neighborhood, easy to check in with the keypad and the pool was beautiful even though we were too tired to use it after our full days in the parks.
14 day vacation
Lovely time spent at the villa! Nicely decorated throughout, fantastic location for all the attractions and it felt very safe within the gated complex
Any issues were dealt with quickly, would recommend
We had really good time at this villa. Management was very helpfull.
We're very pleased you had a good time and hope to see you again.
We enjoyed our stay. This property met our needs and was a great value, as it was a great proximity to ESPN Wide World of Sports. We did feel that the house needs some deep cleaning and a few repairs, which we noted for the owners.
Thanks for your feedback Jennifer and whilst I'm pleased that you had a good time I was saddened to have received the lowest rating we have ever had.
Our home is scheduled to have a deep clean done when our current guest checks-out and I will also address your other comments with my local management company.
Great close location for Disney
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here- it’s in a great location- very close to Animal Kingdom and plenty of eateries and supermarkets nearby. Nice heated pool in more secluded setting than usual, all kitchen gadgets you need, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Karen was very helpful and informative in the months leading up to our stay. Perfect for our family stay.
Thanks for the lovely review Rebecca. We hope you'll come and stay again soon!
The exclusive community of Sunset Lakes is very private and tranquil set in conservation grounds, yet only minutes drive from the shops, malls and restaurants of Kissimmee's Highway 192. We are situated between Markers 4 and 5. Orlando International Airport is just 30 minutes away and Walt Disney World is only 5 minutes drive away.
