Sunset Lakes: Our Sunset Lakes Villa is an awesome villa backing directly onto Sunset Lake. Built in 1999, this modern luxury villa is located in Kissimmee Florida. Sunset Lakes is a premier secure community situated just over three miles south west of Walt Disney World Resort and is one of the closest vacation rental communities to the attractions in Orlando. Sunset Lakes is a gated community with sidewalks throughout. Onsite there are two fishing permitted lakes, a Community Swimming Pool with nice bath-house, Cabana, Children's Tot Lot Play Area and Gazebo. At Sunset Lakes you have the pleasure of quiet and secure natural Florida surroundings. In the mornings, weather permitting, you can see a lovely sunrise and watch hot air balloons taking off from across the street that float over the homes and lakes located here. In the evenings, the sunset is spectacular reflected in the lakes, and to the east, you can see several fireworks shows over the trees. Insurance is available, starting at $49 per stay - this eliminates the refundable deposit fee. Please inquire if interested.

About Steve & Laree

We have been married over 31 years - YAY! We live in San Diego, which we love, and we own other long-term rentals in AZ. We dabbled in the vacation rental zone back in 2006, and we love it! The best part is hearing the happy feedback from our guests! We just wish we had more time to get out to our favorite home-away-from home in Florida!

Steve & Laree purchased this villa in 2006

Why Steve & Laree chose Sunset Lakes

Because it's the best!!!!

What makes this villa unique

Cozy, comfortable, location, private, lakeside, cleanliness... the list goes on!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just returned from a wonderful, busy week in Orlando. Laree, the owner had provided plenty of information as regards the villa including the best route from the airport. The villa was as promised in a quiet gated community, immaculately kept. The villa itself had 4 bedrooms and a large lounge/dining area, a big hall, garage and a pool under a lanai. We asked for pool heating as it was only March and the pool was fabulous. The villa overlooks the lake and my husband would go fishing every morning and caught many big bass. The neighborhood alligator was around and kept watch over the fishing activities! There was lots of wildlife to see. The washing machine was very useful as were the ample amount of towels . You definitely need a car if you are staying here. The parks are nearby but roads are busy and it is still quite a drive wherever your go. Publix is a short drive away as is Walmart. The villa was a quiet haven at the end of the day. We were lucky with the weather, we only had one day of rain. We would certainly recommend this villa. Rental prices were very reasonable and the deposit was returned very quickly.

Great Florida Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Baesslers were wonderful to rent from-everything in place very clean and roomy villa. We had enough room for everyone to have their own "space" and enjoyed the convenient location to the parks, shopping and restaurants. Sorry we did not have time to sign the guest book super busy and my husband and son only had a few days with us. Would highly recommend!

Everything You Want and More!

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down the best vacation rental! The owners are so personable, sweet, and accommodating. They let us bring our fur babies and their clean, beautiful home was everything we expected. We were minutes away from attractions and great places to eat. Laree let us know of the new, gorgeous Super Walmart 5 minutes down the road which was super helpful. I have been talking this place up since I booked it and it was not a disappointment. I will continue to recommend it to my friends and family and will be sure to book again next time I plan a trip! Not only is the home situated in a beautiful spot with all the great little luxuries, the owners make you feel special and are some of the kindest people you will ever talk to. So blessed to have found this gem in my long search, and thankful that everything worked out the way I wanted for my boyfriend's surprise 30th! Thanks a million!
