Sunset Lakes house description
'Still Waters', our highly upgraded, south-facing lakefront villa is a perfect vacation choice if you appreciate peace and tranquillity in luxurious surroundings, yet want the convenience of being as close as possible to the Orlando Theme Parks, shopping & Golf Courses. The view of the lake from the south-facing pool, spa and deck is incomparable .... when you sit outside sipping a cool drink in the evening, watching the sun go down and then seeing the moon rise over the lake, you will find it hard to believe that you are just 4 miles from the main gates of Disney and the lively Highway 192. This is one of the largest 4 bedroom vacation homes you can rent in the Orlando area (2600 sq ft) so there is ample room for two couples or families to holiday together in comfort - especially as the two huge Master Suites have identical bathroom facilities.
Sunset Lakes is a small, prestigious, gated community and is one of the closest to Orlando's main attractions. It is a mature development of detached pool homes surrounding two natural lakes, which attract many varieties of fish and wildlife.
Our luxurious home is minutes away from many Golf Courses, restaurants and supermarkets. Getting to and from the Theme Parks is easy with this ideal location. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoons relaxing by your own private pool and return to the parks in minutes.
Within the community there is a communal pool and children’s play area, and you may fish in the well-stocked lake. Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida. You may spot cranes, bald eagles, ducks, buzzards, racoons & armadillos, plus many other small song birds.
"Still Waters" is a highly upgraded, exceptionally comfortable villa. It has been creatively decorated to reflect the serenity of the exterior waterscape, with a hint of the tropics and the ocean.
The home has cool ceramic tiled floors in the Family Room, kitchen and bathrooms, whilst the Living/Games Area and all bedrooms are fully carpeted. It is air-conditioned with ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living areas for your extra comfort. The Family Room has lovely leather sofas and an armchair, and is equipped with a flat screen HD TV, plus DVD & CD players and iPod dock. Large sliding windows open to the pool deck. The Living/Games Area is furnished with two additional sofas and a full-size professional slate bed billiard table. There are two huge Master Bedroom Suites which are ideal if two families or couples are renting the villa. One is on the ground floor with glass sliding doors to the pool (ideal for those who may find the stairs tricky). The other is on the upper floor, with lovely south-facing views over the lake. Both Master Suites have King-size beds, walk-in closets and exceptionally large bathrooms with twin vanities, full size oval bath, walk-in shower and separate toilet. Two further bedrooms upstairs both have two single beds in each and share the third bathroom. This bathroom has vanity, bath with shower over, and a toilet. A Powder Room is located on the ground floor. The open-plan luxury Kitchen with Granite tops and the Dining Area are adjacent to the Family Room and overlook the pool and lake. There is a separate laundry room with a large washer and dryer, plus a sink. Parking for 2 cars on the driveway and 1 car in the Garage, which has an automatic door opener.
POOL, SPA & DECK
The lovely private south-facing heated swimming pool has been specially designed with a small water feature & tropical planting to create a very pleasing scene overlooking the lake. The whole pool and deck area is mesh screened to let the sun in but keep the bugs out. Electric pool heating is available for the cooler months, but is optional May - September. The free-form pool measures approx. 28 x 12 feet, so you can have a swim or just enjoy splashing about. Atmospheric garden lighting creates a special ambience as darkness falls.
A luxurious hydrotherapy Hot Tub/Spa is available for our guests' enjoyment. With its 18 adjustable high performance jets, 7 multi-level seats and underwater multicolour lighting, soaking in the hot swirling water is truly a pleasure after a long day at the theme parks, sightseeing or shopping.
The pool and spa are maintained regularly by our Management Company. The extended deck area contains ample luxury pool lounging furniture, together with tables and chairs for al fresco dining. The large lanai with ceiling fan provides protection from the sun if required. A George Forman electric BBQ/grill is provided for our guests to use.
The house has the benefit of free high speed wireless internet so bring your lap top if you need to keep in touch by e-mail or don't want to miss your eBay auctions! You can make free local phone calls from the house, if calling long distance you can buy a pre-paid phone card from the supermarkets or pharmacies. There is an HD TV/DVD combo in each bedroom, plus a Playstation2 games console in one of the twins (bring or hire your own games). For your peace of mind, we have installed a safe for guests' small valuables and the house is fitted with a monitored alarm system. A crib, high chair, stair guard and stroller are provided free of charge if required.

A 5* property all round
We found the property to be everything we had anticipated and exactly as described. Furthermore, Amanda Burrup was incredibly friendly and helpful prior to our arrival with travel advice and instructions. The property was clean and well equipped with more than enough of everything you could possibly need. I was pleased to find there were even a couple of plug in nightlights for the children. I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to friends and if we return to Florida at any point then I would definately book again. The location is perfect. You are near enough to all the major attractions, yet far enough away to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet and family time in the pool. A 5* property all round!!

An amazing villaGuest comment entered by manager
An amazing villa
Well, what can I say but a very big thank you for providing us with an amazing villa for our 2 week holiday. Everything was clean and spacious-we travelled as a party of 5 and there was more than enough room to feel as if you weren't on top of each other. The pool area was fab and my 6 year old always wanted to get back from the parks to get in the pool. On 2 of our 'down days' we literally didn't move from the poolside. The laundry room was great as was the kitchen and the pool table was also a hit. It was a safe, gated community close to the parks but quiet and very peaceful - amazing wildlife and the mesh around the pool meant no nasty surprises in the villa or around the pool! Recommend the outback restaurant just around the corner for great service , good steaks and burgers AND a 3 hour happy hour! Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anybody - one complaint - the men didn't catch any bass in the lake so we WILL be back so they can carry on trying! Thanks again

Still Waters was the best Villa we have stayed inGuest comment entered by manager
Still Waters was the best Villa we have stayed in
"Firstly let me start by saying what an amazing time we had staying at Still Waters! Myself and my parents have been travelling to Florida since 1991 (lost count but about 18/19 visits) and stayed at various hotels and villas. We all agree that Still Waters was the best Villa that we have stayed in, ticking all the boxes. The villa was immaculate on our arrival and the location with peace & quiet was perfect. It was a real home from home and a real credit to you. As soon as we got home my parents were checking the availability for next year, and we can see you are already very booked up, and we can see why! Many thanks for a wonderful holiday, and hopefully we will be staying with you again in the not too distant future."

This is a lovely villa......
We were bowled over when we walked through the doors of Still Waters. It was lovely and there wasnt a moment when you were sitting enjoying the peace when you didnt think " this is a lovely villa". The location was quiet, peaceful and felt very private although clearly there are neighbours, not least the wildlife that walked by that added to the charm of the place. The view beyond the pool to the lake made you feel that you were the only family there. It felt very safe and tranquil. Our every need was catered for. I cant remember thinking I wish they had x,y, or z. All that we required from our activities was usually there. We were so near the resorts and this was handy for getting young children back when they became overtired. The kids loved the pool and they developed their swimming skills and confidence in the water. All of this was so much better than our last visit when we were squeezed into bedrooms, living on top of each other, in the Disney resort. The space at the villa allowed a bigger group of us to have our own areas and there wasnt one niggle from anyone. The pool table was a big hit. Remember to take your unlimited drinks cups back to Universal if you visit both parks on different days! We enjoyed eating at the Italian restaurant (I think it was the Olive Garden - Turn Left, beyond Harley Davidson) but try to book ahead or expect a wait. We also enjoyed the Bubba Gump eating experience at Universal. It was a splendid holiday and we will remember it fondly.

We rated the experience highly.........
We really liked the villa.. a very good layout and we found it in good and clean order when we got there. Everything seemed well equipped (the bed linens were of noticeably good quality) and the pool area was great... really liked the plants and the outlook. Debbie was very good and the service when needed was very prompt. The location is excellent.. we have stayed in the Davenport area a few times previously so we found sunset lakes to be really convenient. So overall we rated the experience highly.

We had a wonderful stay
we had a wonderful stay at Still Waters! The weather warmed up nicely, and everyone enjoyed the calm, relaxing atmosphere at the villa. The kitchen was a good size and shape for more than one cook at a time, and the beds were comfortable which was a blessing for our backs! You've been a joy to work with, Amanda, and I would definitely recommend the villa to others.

We had a wonderful holiday enhanced by your home
Just a quick few words to thank you for the use of your villa for our couple of weeks in Florida; we had a wonderful holiday which was enhanced by the relaxing and comforting environment of your home. We particularly liked the quiet location and the ability to enjoy a poolside cup of coffee watching the sunrise, specifically during our first couple of jet lagged days. We also found the spacious accommodation and the in-house access to the pool-table especially enjoyable after long days out in the sun (or malls!).

We were delighted with our choice of accommodation
Hi Amanda Thanks for your email. We had a great time in Orlando and thoroughly enjoyed our time at your villa at Sunset Lakes. The villa was great and we really enjoyed our time there especially the pool table. We used it more as it was in the villa rather than in the garage. The hot tub was fixed by Thursday and we enjoyed relaxing at the end of a long day. We were delighted with our choice of accommodation this year and will keep you in my contacts for future vacations to Orlando.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: Hi, we are Iain and Amanda Burrup. We live in the beautiful Cotswolds area of the United Kingdom, and have owned this dream Florida vacation home since 2005. We visit at least 3 times a year, to get our sunshine fix and for Iain to play a little golf. We have 4 grand-daughters, who can't wait visit the Disney parks and the other great child-friendly attractions of the area! Regular visiting also gives us an opportunity to ensure that our home is being maintained and cared for properly by our management company. Each time we go, we always find ourselves upgrading things, and shopping for little extras that we feel will enhance our guests' experience. If you decide to choose our villa for your Florida vacation, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Best wishes, Iain and Amanda.
Why Sunset Lakes:
The location of the villa couldn't be better if you wish to visit the Disney theme parks, as it is only 4 miles from Animal Kingdom, and there is a useful short-cut we can tell you about to get to there and also the I-4 which gives easy access to Universal Studios, Legoland, and the large shopping malls. Over the past couple of years, there has been a huge increase in the number of great restaurants within really easy reach of the villa (including Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabas, Olive Garden, Applebees, Houlihans, Joe's Crab Shack, Buffalo Wild Wings, Orlando Ale House and Logans Steak House). There are also two lovely Publix supermarkets, plus a SuperTarget and a WalMart Superstore nearby, so you are really quite spoilt for shopping choice.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this villa because although it is so convenient for the theme parks, golfing and shopping, when you return and relax outside overlooking the tranquil lake you feel a million miles away from all the hustle and bustle. It's south-facing aspect means that the pool and deck get the sun from early morning until the sun goes down. And the views over the lake are so relaxing, plus you get to see lots of wildlife, including cranes, egrets, buzzards, ducks, racoons and armadillos. If you enjoy fishing, you can use the rods supplied and fish from right outside the villa, or from the fishing dock a few yards away. No licence is required, although we do ask that you kindly return the fish to the lake after catching them.
