Sunset Lakes villa description

Our Florida Villa really is a true 'home from home' offering all the benefits of staying in a private home in air-conditioned comfort while being close to all the action of the Orlando and Disney theme parks.

The larger than average home boasts Two master suites, so two families are able to stay together - making a great value vacation compared hotel suites. Both master suites offer spectacular en-suite bathrooms and one even has it's own private sunbathing balcony with stunning lake views. The further bedrooms comprise a double and two twins, one of which is 'Scooby Doo' themed for children.

We have worked hard to provide all the little touches and upgrades that you would wish for on a luxury vacation. These include the private Lakeview Pool with shaded lanai plus a luxurious separate hot tub. Plus a games room which has air-conditioning (essential in the summer months) and free telephone calls and WiFi access.

Villa Santa Cruz - an ideal vacation home: The open plan living areas boast a formal Dining room, a Family room with cable TV & VCR, fully equipped Kitchen with Breakfast Bar and a Breakfast Dining area - no need for the cook to be left out here! The accommodation is further enhanced by the Utility room boasting an American sized washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a Games room which has Pool, Table Tennis, Air Hockey and a Playstation 2 with a range of games. The Games Room also has the added benefit of air conditioning.

To the front the Villa overlooks peaceful conservation land while to the rear there is a private Lanai and Swimming pool with optional chargeable heating for those chilly winter months. A separate luxury hot tub caters for those tired muscles after a long day and lanai is a wonderful setting for dining al fresco and offers stunning views westward over the sparkling lake - perfect for a relaxing siesta from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.

Sunset Lakes, a great location: Sunset Lakes is a gated secure community and is one of Kissimmee's most popular developments combining tranquil surroundings and a beautiful Lake with close proximity to Golf courses, Shopping, Restaurants and easy access to all the exciting attractions of the Orlando area.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We are Jorge and Sue Fernandes and we love to visit our home in Florida. We live in Stockport, which is in the north of England and work in the Hotel industry, running a family business. Our business takes up a lot of our time, but when we are not working we love to spend time with our two daughters and plan our Florida holidays.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunset Lakes:
                  Our love affair with Florida started in 1994 on our first visit. From then on we were hooked, and were regular Hotel visitors until 2002 when we bought our dream home at Sunset Lakes. As soon as we stepped foot in our villa and looked over the lake views to the back we knew this was the one. The layout, location and size of our home just made so much sense to us, and gave us the space we needed to visit with our extended family and friends. Since then we have enjoyed many wonderful vacations with our growing family and we visit Sunset Lakes at least once a year. On every visit we spend a lot of time on each visit making sure that our home is kept to the highest standards. We are also lucky to have a great local management team.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Sunset Lakes is a rare gem amongst the large rental estates in the area. Set around two lakes the community has just 160 homes and is surrounded by conservation land, giving it a small, rural feel while being just a mile from the Highway 192 and the Disney parks beyond. What do we love about Villa Santa Cruz? Being close enough to the parks to come home to recharge our batteries before heading back out for more fun! Being able to sit in the sun while taking in the stunning views of Sunset Lake Being able to soak away our aches and pains in the hot tub. Listening to the local wildlife, and fishing in the Lake Our teenage daughter especially loves having her own huge Master suite and en-suite bathroom! We love having a little peace and quiet while the kids are enjoying themselves in the games room. But most of all, we enjoy the fact that we can all spend our vacation time together in a place that we love.
