About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 2 US king (en-suite) - 2 twin - 3 Baths - Games Room - Pool

We count our villa very much as a second home, we have spent much time and effort making it into a place where anyone can feel at home, relax and use it as a base for exploring as much of Florida as possible. We think of our villa as being like 'Home from Home' with a touch of luxury.

We have been returning to Florida for many years, first as a couple and then with our children, so hopefully we can also help you with any questions you may have, if you wish to contact us regarding any questions or to get a quote for your stay please email us or give us a call on

family gettogether

  • 4 of 5

chose this location to meet family from different state for spring vacation. Beautiful home and plenty of room for everyone. House had everything we could possibly need for our stay there. The kids loved the game room especially. The pool area was lovely although we did not get to use due to unforeseen issues that Gerry and Kathy quickly responded to. I appreciated that they responded so quickly to my concerns. The home is great location easy access to anywhere and far enough away to not be in the middle of it all. I would recommend to anyone I know to stay at this villa. quiet neighborhood. My only recommendation is to avoid the Walmart (worst ever) and use the Publix (just as close) for your needs.

Orlando House

  • 3 of 5

An average rental. The heated pool in the screened in area is the best part of this cozy place. The house is centrally located with many different chain restaurants around, but not the most convenient to the Disney area if you plan on visiting there (as we did). At the time of our stay, there was LOTS of construction on the nearby already busy highway; made getting around not so easy. The owner are super nice to deal with, and he did respond quickly to our concerns about the condition of the property. There wasn't much he could do about the problems (no real biggies) being that the owner lives in the UK, and the management agency they use was closed the one time we tried to contact them. Again, the pool area was a real treat!

Owner's Response: We are responding to this review as we feel we had to, and we are glad to have the charge to say… Our villa is not on a busy highway, and any construction there may have been is not going on now. We also make it clear in our information a car is certainly needed, unless you are staying on Disney property itself you will always need a car. We like to think we are hands on with the guests that stay in our home in the sun, the fact we are in the UK is not a problem, we visit Florida often always staying in our villa, so we see what is going on in the area. And finally we have been with our management company from the start and they are one of the best.

Gerry and Kathy Gatford purchased this villa in 2003

Why Gerry and Kathy Gatford chose Sunrise Lakes

We chose Sunrise Lakes for its great location, so easy to get to Disney, and yet not to far from all the other famous parks and attractions Florida has to offer, we also love to go to the beach which is just an hour and a half away.

What makes this villa unique

A a couple of things our guests comment on is our good location, and the lay out of our villa, the fact our two master en-suite bedrooms are the same size, making it ideal if two families / couples are staying.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved your beautiful home and enjoyed staying there. You were right when you said you tried to think of everything & that it was in a convenient location. Because of all the wedding festivities, we were not there as much as we would have loved to be, but when we were, we loved it. Even took advantage of some board games. Next time we go down we will keep your home in mind & hopefully it will be available! Thank you for working with us to help us understand the whole process!

Thank you
