Villa overview - owner's description
Luxury 4 bed 3 bath villa with pool and games room situated on the prestigious gated community of Sunset Lakes, less than 10 minutes from Disney World!
2017 prices held at 2015 levels!!
Our luxury 4 bedroom fully air-conditioned pool villa is in a fantastic location at Sunset Lakes, just off Highway 192 in the West Kissimmee area.
Our vacation getaway is truly a home from home, furnished to a high standard and with all the amenities you would expect, including a host of hi-tech features. This is a spacious and welcoming holiday destination within a secure gated community making an ideal destination for your vacation.
Sunset Lakes is a small, prestigious gated community and one of the closest to Orlando's main attractions. It is a mature development of detached pool homes surrounding 2 natural lakes, which attract many varieties of fish and wildlife. Relaxing in the peace and tranquility of this fabulous location it is hard to imagine that you are just 4 miles from the Main Gates of Disney. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoon relaxing by your own private pool; then return to the parks in minutes.
It also provides excellent access to the other attractions in the Orlando area, such as Seaworld and Universal Studios. Shops and restaurants are just a few minutes away and there are several high quality golf courses nearby. Easy access can be obtained onto Interstate 4 providing links to other parts of Florida including the Gulf Coast and Daytona Beach.
On site there is a communal pool and children’s play area, and if you bring your own rods you can fish in the well-stocked lake (catch and release). Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida.
Sunset Villa provides a spacious, light and airy open plan living area with two large comfortable sofas (the worn out leather ones in the photographs have recently been replaced). The living room overlooks the swimming pool and has a large sliding patio door allowing access onto the pool deck. There is a 46-inch flat screen TV with HD cable (including Starz and HBO channels) and an upscaling DVD player with a good selection of DVDs for all ages. Also we have a Sony Playstation 3 with the MOVE system, which allows you to play a selection of exciting games (including Harry Potter) using only the motion of your body. For musical entertainment there is a stereo CD player and a BOSE SoundDock so that you can enjoy your very own music from your iPod/iPhone.
The dining area has a large dining table and chairs seating up to 8 people (not many villas can seat all occupants as we can). There are a further two stools which can be used at the adjacent breakfast bar. The dining area has direct access to the lanai (shaded patio area with ceiling light/fan) via sliding doors. This area also houses the ‘home office’ corner – just bring your own laptop to be totally connected to the fast broadband wifi service, and connect wirelessly or by the provided cable to the laser printer – great for printing out your boarding cards before departure, spreadsheets or other documents. Two portable telephones are provided, with unlimited free calls to local and US national landlines.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with full size cooker, large 'American' side-by-side fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser, double sink with waste disposal, microwave oven, dishwasher, electric kettle, food mixer, blender and many other appliances. Everything you would need is here, whether putting together a simple salad or preparing a full four course meal. The cupboards are well stocked with cutlery, crockery, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, serving dishes and lots of plastic ware for your outside dining by the pool.
Pool and Lanai
Three sets of patio doors lead directly onto the very private screened pool deck where you will find plenty of high quality sun loungers, tables, chairs and side tables to enjoy the Florida sunshine until late into the evening. There is a shaded lanai area that has an overhead fanlight and a table and chairs for outside dining. The pool can be heated upon request during the cooler months.
The Games Room, formerly a double garage, contains a 'professional' slate pool table, foosball/table soccer, and sofas for lounging. There is also a box with a selection of board games. For car parking, there is a full double driveway outside the garage, featuring a motion activated security light – plenty of room for two cars, side by side.
The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms with a layout that gives the ability for combined families / larger parties to holiday together but have their own private space. Further flexibility in sleeping accommodation is provided by the extremely comfortable queen sofa bed in the lounge.
All the bedding is provided and the beds are made up with clean linen before you arrive. Extra bedding is provided should you need it. The villa has air-conditioning throughout, so will remain at a constant cool temperature that will make you feel comfortable even if the temperatures are on the up and up outside, and will also help towards giving you a good nights sleep.
The King master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, radio alarm clock and en-suite bathroom with wc, garden tub bath, large walk in shower cubicle and twin vanity units (and hairdryer). There is a walk-in closet off the bathroom with electronic safe and lots of hanging storage space. The master bedroom also has a ceiling fan, full length windows overlooking the pool area, a 32-inch flat screen cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. Both bedroom and en suite have wide door access, making them fully wheelchair accessible.
The Queen master bedroom has a queen size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, radio alarm clock and en-suite bathroom with wc, large walk in shower cubicle and wash hand basin. There is a built in closet with lots of hanging storage space. The Queen bedroom also has a ceiling fan, a view to the front of the property, a 32-inch flat screen cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. A cupboard also contains a wide selection of paperback books to enjoy during your stay.
Disney Twin bedroom
The Disney themed twin bedroom has twin beds (also with luxurious non-allergenic mattress toppers) and a selection of Disney character toys. It also has a ceiling fan, 26-inch flat screen cable HDTV and DVD player. A built in closet provides hanging storage space. The bedroom is adjacent to the family bathroom which has a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc (and hairdryer).
Second Twin bedroom
This second twin bedroom has twin beds (also with luxurious non-allergenic mattress toppers), a radio alarm clock, ceiling fan, 26-inch flat screen cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. A built in closet provides hanging storage space. The bedroom shares the Jack & Jill bathroom with the Queen room, providing a large walk in shower cubicle, wc and wash hand basin.
The villa has a folding cot/playpen with bedding, a high chair, two lightweight strollers for those long days at the parks and a bed guard for the toddler who would like to be in a ‘big’ bed but isn’t totally confident about being out of a cot.
Although we are ‘on Disney’s doorstep’, we have tried to strike a balance in the decoration of our home. While the Disney bedroom and surrounding areas have lots of Disney links, we have kept the main living areas ‘Disney-free’ since not everyone who visits Orlando is ‘Mouse-obsessed’. We hope our guests appreciate this approach.
Air conditioning – All linen and towels – Washing machine and tumble dryer – Iron and ironing board – Free crib/cot with linen – Baby’s high chair - Toddlers bed rail and strollers – 2 hair dryers - Free use of electronic safe - 5 Flat Screen HDTVs – Cable TV in all bedrooms– Hundreds of TV channels including HBO and Starz - Upscaling DVD players in all rooms -Selection of DVDs for all ages – Stereo CD player - BOSE iPod dcocking station - PS3 MOVE games system with games, including Harry Potter - Free WiFi Internet Access for use with your own laptop - Telephone with free local and US national calls – selection of books/toys/games - Games Room with Pool table, Foosball/Soccer and sofas - Electric Outdoor BBQ Grill.

5 out of 5 people recommend staying here
Just a few words to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your villa over the past two weeks . We have now stayed at 7 villas over the years and must complement you on a very well equipped villa , we liked the the décor and the pictures of bonny Scotland , the welcome pack was a very thoughtful idea , and the surplus supplies left by previous guests was also great , but I must say there is now an abundance of salt ! (ha ha)
The weather during our stay was disappointing but the comfort of the villa made it bearable ...just one point which you may want to think about and that is viewing On-Demand programmes on the TV . I noticed that they are pin protected and after a discussion with Robert I can understand your wariness, however the pin protection also covers the FREE on demand channels . Just wondered if these free channels could be left accessible especially on the wet evenings indoors , of which we have had a canny few
Oh and one other thing .. the ice making compartment was full on arrival and blocked solid ..I removed all of the ice and the dispenser is now working but I could not find any way of stopping it making ice so have had to empty it on a 2 day basis . I have left it empty at present ..perhaps Robert could sort some instructions on the use of the fridge freezer which would be useful for other guests
We have just returned from an amazing stay for 10 days at this lovely sunset lakes villa. The description on the advert is totally accurate, and we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the really well maintained villa, which was much bigger than we had imagined, as well as the amazing pool which we could never get our three children out of!
It was really easy to communicate with the lovely owners via telephone and email prior to during and post the booking, for any queries, questions etc.. The were very approachable and were always able to answer all queries.
Check in and check out was very smooth, and we found the villa in an immaculate condition, the levels of hygiene and cleanliness are excellent.
The location and setting of the villa is fantastic, in a gated community, literally 8- 10 minutes from the disney parks, and 1-2 minutes drive from Formosa gardens, where there are a vast array of restaurants sand shops, and kissimee. Only 20-25 mins from universal, only 1 hour 30 mins from clearwater beach which was also stunning! The villa is very well organised and well laid out. Fantastic facilities With everything catered for from cutlery to a dishwasher to a fab pool to a fully functioning games room, and large tv, and Bose sound system, to keep everyone occupied!
We could not find any fault with this villa, and it more than fulfilled all of our needs as a family of 5, we feel very fortunate that we have discovered this villa and highly recommend it to others, we will definitely be returning in the future!
This was a great villa in a super location. a lovely place to return to after a day at the parks or shopping.
The owners are lovely, and answered my queries, before our stay, really quickly, comprehensively and in a very friendly manner - thank you so much.
You would need a car but the villas proximity to Disney parks was great. Occasionally the 192 was busy and this meant the journeys could take a little longer, but overall we were in the Disney car parks within 10 to 20 minutes (maximum). There are plenty of places to shop and eat within a very short drive.
The villa was lovely and clean and all ready for us when we arrived. We appreciated the small quantity of supplies (tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, juice) to get us through until we could go shopping. There are toilet rolls in every bathroom when you arrive but you will need to buy replacements during your stay.
There were plenty of towels and extra bedding and the washing machine and tumble dryer enabled us to do washing during our visit (youll need to buy soap powder).
We didnt really do any cooking during our stay but there is everything you need (pots, pans, serving dishing, utensils, etc) if you prefer not to eat out.
There are a 3 seater and 2 seater setee in the lounge area, so you might struggle for comfortable sitting if there are more than 5 or 6 adults.
The play room was very well equipped and with a super pool table, foosball table and settees to sit in while youre waiting your turn.
The pool is fabulous, very clean. We didnt pay to have it heated during our stay (middle weeks of April), but we found it no colder than our local swimming pool. Lots of lovely seating in the lania area.
The children (3 and 7) adored their Disney themed bedroom and bathroom. They had fun playing with the toys until theyd bought their own from the shops!
The bathrooms were great and there was always plenty of hot water. It took me a minute to work out that the taps have to be pulled up towards you to get them to turn on (doh!).
We found the area quiet but obviously it would depend on who is staying in adjacent villas. It was very quiet during our stay but the birds could be quite vociferous early in the morning if youre sleeping in the front double bedroom. We always felt very secure and it is a very selec t, gated community.
Robert, the caretaker, responded quickly to the couple of queries we had with him. He was friendly and helpful.
Prior to travelling out, we received lots detailed and helpful info: inventory of equipment in the villa list of places to shop and eat very clear set of instructions on how to get to the villa from Orlando International Airport.
Overall, we would highly recommend this villa: because of: Its vicinity to the parks, the cleanliness, the facilities and the helpfulness of the owners. We did a lot of research before we booked. It was half the price of staying in a Disney budget hotel (which gave you nothing like the facilities we had here). We were unsure about driving but we coped really well , although a satnav did help. The space for facilities provided by Sunset Villa for the 6 of us made us realise that there was really no contest. Even with the cost of the 7 seater hire care and the 17 dollar charge for parking in the Disney parks, renting this villa was still a significant saving. It was much easier and quicker get to and from the parks without having to rely on Disney transport.
Thank you so much for letting us stay. We definitely would rent in this villa again.
Had an excellent stay! The kids loved it and the family relaxed!
Close to everything, yet still secluded enough for some rest and relaxation. Disney was just a door step away! Will be back!
