VRBO Bear stayed here:
I have rave reviews for this home, the property management company, and the owner. Our flight into Orlando landed in the late evening. The detailed instructions on how to get to and into the home made it easy to get situated and unload. We woke up the next day to find ourselves in a gorgeous home with scenic views of the lake right behind us. I picked up breakfast items from the local grocery store (Publix; within 5-7 minutes away). By the time I got back, my family was already swimming around in the enclosed pool (great for summer time to keep the bugs away). The water was a bit chilly, being mid-June, even though we were in Florida. I realized I should have asked for the pool to be warmed up when Brian, the owner, asked me about it during the boarding checklist. After realizing my mistake, I gave the property management company a quick call and within a few short hours the pool heater had been turned on. WOW, what excellent service! I had to call the property management company a couple of times again with minor questions (e.g. wifi network access, the alarm battery died.) Wendy, the property manager, was pleasant, easy-going, and extremely responsive both times.
The house gave us an opportunity to unwind and relax. Whether it was the swimming, the napping in the super comfortable beds, the roomy home, or the quiet cul-de-sac that it sat on, we took full advantage of the amenities and ability to dis-engage from the real world. The home is super close to various activities like Old Town (kid’s amusement park 15 minutes away), various restaurants (5-10 minutes), and Disney Downtown (20-30 minute drive).
The home was roomy, clean, easily accessible, and just fantastic! Next time I’m in Kissimmee, I’m definitely coming back! Thank you so much for a great time.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Hi, we are Brian & Carol Williams. We bought this gorgeous property with our daughter & son in law. We are completely thrilled and over the moon to own such a dream property, we have recently completed an extensive upgrade of the Villa, our aim was to make 'The Retreat' the perfect 'home away from home' for our visitors.
Why the Owner Chose Sunset Lakes (Four Corners, FL, USA):
From the moment we saw this villa we knew it was the one, with the magnificent Sunset Lake at the rear and the spacious plot 'The Retreat' occupies, 'The Retreat' has unrivalled privacy rarely found in the rental areas surrounding Disney. Sunset Lakes close proximity to Disney means you can spend more time enjoying the villa and the parks and less time travelling.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
'The Retreat' Villa has unparalled unobstructed panoramic views of Sunset Lake and complete privacy from our neighbours. At 'The Retreat' you will truly be able to relax in what we believe is paradise. Being on the lake and also so near the fishing pier, playground and community pool offers added convenience for our guests. We believe that once you have stayed at 'The Retreat', you will most definately be wanting to return.
