The community is built around a large lake where fishing is permitted from the dock area for residents and guests.
The villa backs on to a large conservation area providing a peaceful backdrop to the community and affording the opportunity to see some of the local wildlife such as water birds, raccoons, armadillos and even eagles.
There is a play area provided for children as well as a communal pool where guests can swim if they require a larger pool than the private villa pool.
The surrounding area to Sunset Lakes has numerous restaurants to cater for any needs within minutes including Outback, Longhorn, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, TGI Fridays, Cracker Barrel and fast food restaurants.
The villa was in an excellent location near to all attractions it was a good size and with a nice quiet south facing aspect. Some parts of the villa are looking old and tired. We have stayed in Sunset Lakes in a number of different villas but the quality of this villa was poor in comparison. We made a compliant about the beds to both the owners and management company and neither party were interesteded in sorting them out. All the beds in the villa but particularly the main double bed are the worst beds I have ever slept in. You cant move on the beds without them making a terrible loud creaking noise even if pushed up tight to the wall which is what we were told to do.. In the end we slept on the mattress on the floor.
It didt ruin our holiday but we did end up booking a hotel for 2 nights just to have a comfortable nights sleep. I would return to sunset lakes but not to that villa

Sorry for the delayed response - I have only just found out how to do it following changes to the website!
Firstly, I am sorry your stay was not all you expected. I would disagree with some of your points regarding communications as I personally tried every day for a week to contact you and our management company knocked but you were out every time. The bed was replaced immediately after your stay (it would have been during had we been able to arrange it with you).
On arrival Villa looked satisfactory. We arrived late at night and was disappointed there was no welcome pack I.e. milk etc which we have had in two other villas rented in Sunset Lakes, there were no amenities provided for example washing up cloths or washing up liquid, only one refuse sack as replacement to use for rubbish disposal, all of these I would have expected to be provided as the norm. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and some of the pillows were stained. We were asked to put our bedding laundry on to wash to help the cleaners but no laundry detergents were provided. Overall adequate villa but lacked household amenities which I would have expected to be provided for the price we paid to rent the Villa. Also we didnt get to use the safe as the code wasnt set to the number provided.

Thank you for your review - I would state that we offer welcome packs as an optional extra which you DID NOT request. The villa is let on a self catering basis, if other villas offer other facilities they are certainly not free but included in the rental price. We offer any facilities people request but do not as a routine offer items that most guests do not want to pay for, instead we keep the rental price to a minimum and let guests choose what extras they wish to pay for. I do feel a one star rating for our villa because you did not receive something you had neither requested or paid for is a little harsh.
The villa was ideal and well equipped. We didnt see anyone from the rental company at all, therefore the registration form wasnt uplifted.
Also the directions from the airport need to be updat ed, as the toll amounts are wrong.

Thanks for your comments, tolls had changed since our last visit and we have now updated our information.
An ideal, quiet location within easy reach of all the theme parks and for longer forays to Cape Kennedy or Tampa/ St Petersburg. The villa is very well equipped and is ideally suited for couples or families. Should we return to Orlando, we would re-book if available.
We had a fantastic 3 weeks in Florida, and booked Sunset lakes based on a friends recommendation. We were not dissapointed. The vilal is in a very quiet location. The facilities are great, and our kids made great use of the pool and games room - a real bonus when the thunder storm hits!.
It really is only 10 minutes from Disney by car and well placed for all the facilities in Celebration - shopping, dining and activities like Mini golf!! Just watch out for the Racoon and Armadillo late at night getting your rubbish bin.... we loved watching them and following them around. We have 3 kids and there was plenty of room to spend time together and space when needed! We loved it and are coming back in 2011.
The villa was everything I hoped for and more!So big and clean,with a lovely swimming pool and so close to Disney-just perfect!.We would love to back here again and would definitely recommend to friends,although I would love to keep this super villa a secret!
