Welcome to our villa, The Retreat by the Lake. The Retreat is a luxury lakeside rental villa in the Orlando Florida area just minutes from Disney World. The villa has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private south facing pool that overlooks a lake. It has just been completely renovated and refurnished, and provides all the modern amenities that should be expected from a 5-star vacation home including a games room. The villa is located on a tree lined street in the quiet gated community of Sunset Lakes. This location is a true oasis in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. Whether you’ve just done “Dumbo or Die” at the Magic Kingdom, spent the day on the links converting that 96 into a 69, or watched some exciting baseball spring training, you can return through the gates of this established community into a peaceful, serene environment where you have your own spacious villa at a fraction of the cost of a 5 star hotel. The Retreat now features a 55' high definition TV with Blue Ray and Netflix.
5 Star Luxury without the Price: The Retreat has been renovated to offer a self-catered luxury experience at affordable rates. You will pay three to four times as much for comparable accommodations at the nearby theme parks. All the bedrooms have been tastefully appointed and equipped. The large living room and dining room overlooks the pool and the lake. You can have your morning coffee as the Sandhill cranes and ibis saunter by just feet from the lanai. You can catch bass as bald eagles soar over the lake. The kitchen is fully equipped with a range, microwave, ice making fridge, garbage disposal unit, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle and many other conveniences. The Retreat also features a games and fitness room complete with pool table, dart board, treadmill and exercise bike.
Convenience with Tranquility: When you stand on the quiet tree lined street outside the villa you wouldn't suspect that you are just minutes away from the theme parks and the stores / restaurants of Kissimmee. Grocery, big box and drug stores are just minutes away. Everyone who visits the Retreat and Sunset Lakes is impressed by the peaceful tranquility of the neighbourhood and the lake. Other vacation home communities close to the Theme Parks cannot offer you this combination.
Security and Privacy: Sunset Lakes is a gated community with an electronic key code access and surveillance system. The Retreat itself has its own electronic key code access system. Your code, which is unique to your stay, will be provided to you by email prior to the start of the stay. If there are issues our Property Management Company is available to assist you. . Two safes are available to protect your valuables. All sliding doors at The Retreat are secured by safety locks and door alarms so you can keep track of the little ones. The Retreat backs onto the lake, not someone else's backyard. Visibility from the neighbour’s backyards is restricted by hedges, screens and the lake.
