Welcome to our luxurious 5 bed 3.5 bath villa at Sunset Lakes, an exclusive gated community of privately owned villas, located on the banks of 2 natural lakes and surrounded by unspoilt conservation areas which attract an abundance of Floridian wildlife.
Sunset Lakes is just off Hwy 192, between mile marker 4 & 5, and only 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport, 50 minutes from Sanford International Airport and approximately 1 hours drive to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Facilities at Sunset Lakes also include a communal swimming pool with cabana, a kiddies tot lot and a lakeside gazebo for fishing.
Sunset Lakes is one of the closest rental communities to the Disney theme parks and is genuinely only 5 minutes from Disney's Animal Kingdom and only a few minutes more from Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios (formally MGM Studios) and Epcot. Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Seaworld, Discovery Cove and Florida's newest waterpark Aquatica are only a 15-minute drive away. Our villa is in the enviable position of being close enough to the theme parks to make it possible for you to return numerous times throughout your busy days to take a swim, to relax and sunbathe, to have a bite to eat or just to take time to recharge your batteries before you return to the fun. Another unique feature of our villa is that it is not overlooked. To the front we have uninterrupted views of the conservation area and to the back we overlook the lake.
Numerous shopping malls and retail outlets are also very close by and for convenient grocery shopping; Publix, Wal-Mart Superstore, Super Target and a Winn Dixie are only 1.5 - 2 miles away. Many excellent restaurants including Outback, TGI Friday's, Texas Roadhouse, Longhorns, Bahama Breeze, Buffalo Wild Wings and Joes Crab Shack, to name just a few, are all within a 2 mile radius and for fast food you’ll also find Pizza Hut, Ponderosa, Shoney’s Denny’s, Taco Bell and of course MacDonald’s.
For golf enthusiasts there’s a range of beautiful Championship Golf Courses nearby such as Falcon's Fire, Disney's Celebration Golf, Legends, Highlands Reserve and Southern Dunes.
Our villa, with over 2600 sq ft of living space is ideal for 2 families to share, particularly if elderly relatives or friends wish to join the vacation and equally suitable for groups of smaller families and friends. It centers around the large open plan family room with its large screen Cable TV, DVD, and CD Player, also encompassing the dining room, the sunny breakfast nook and the fully equipped kitchen, complete with Cooker, Microwave Oven, Dishwasher, large fridge/Freezer with icemaker, Silverware and Tableware for 16 people and for safety reasons, Plastic Tableware and Glasses for use on the pool deck. This room leads directly onto the pool deck passing through a wall of glass sliding doors, which give spectacular panoramic views of the lake. The family room also gives access to the first of our Master Ensuite Bedrooms, the Utility Room, equipped with a US style Washer and Dryer, an Iron and an Ironing Board, a Separate Toilet and the Games Room. All rooms are fully heated/air-conditioned for year round comfort and all Linens, Towels and Pool Towels are provided.

The remaining 3 bedrooms are all upstairs and lead off from the galleried balcony which overlooks the Family Room below.

The Fully Screened Pool, which faces a southwesterly direction, is bathed in glorious sunshine from around 9-9.30 each morning and this continues until the sun goes down each day, displaying the most spectacular sunset you will ever see! The Pool measures 26ft x 14ft (with Optional Pool Heat Available) and with an Outside Shower, 2 dining Tables, 2 Drinks Tables, 8 Chairs and 4 Sun Loungers, all with Comfortable Padded Cushions, we are sure you will have everything you need to enjoy many hours of fun in the sun.

At night, after a busy day spent at the theme parks or shopping or playing golf, sit back, relax on the pool deck with a refreshing cool drink and watch the Disney fireworks from over the treetops.

Outstanding property in an excellent location.
This is our fifth visit to Sunset Lakes and our third staying in this property.We can honestly say that you couldn't choose a better villa or more ideal location in Orlando.
Very spacious villa with every amenity you could wish for and the owner Lynn provides all the information you need in a prompt,friendly and efficient manner.
We hope to return to this villa on any future visits to Orlando.
Perfectly located with everything you need and more!
The home is in a fantastic location just minutes from the Disney parks. Lynn is a great communicator and made sure we had all the information and more before and during our stay. The home is exactly as it is on the website - in fact, I’d say better! Lynn has thought of everything and all those little things you often find missing in other homes are there waiting for you.
The new pool lining has really brought the pool area bang up to date - a great place to relax in between park visits. The lake view is beautiful and we all enjoyed the wildlife popping by on occasion to nosey around outside the Lanai.
It’s rare I give 5 stars for any review but on this occasion it’s a no-brainer! Highly recommend and we can’t wait to go back!
Well equipped house, easy access to everything Orlando has to offer.
Spacious accommodation, well equipped kitchen with pool and bbq. Close enough to all the parks but also far enough away for relaxation by the pool. Have had an amazing stay..... We'll be back 😃�
We have stayed at Sunset Lakes a number of times, this house had the best layout.
Thank you so much for your great review and we hope to welcome you back in the future.
Everything perfect except service
House is perfect. Some wine blinds are damaged, I hope Lynn doesn't charge that on me. My only point was about the pool. Nobody told me that pool can't be used when it's cold, even with water heating, because pool is not covered with glasses but with fly pretention screens. So I paid $308 for something I could not use. We had only one day warm enough to use it.
I'm sorry you experienced unseasonable cold weather during your stay which unfortunately does mean the pool heaters sometimes struggle to maintain comfortable water temperatures. This is something beyond our control.
The pool screens do look like glass but are, as you say, mesh which protect you from bugs etc. and still allow the Florida sunshine to penetrate.
Please accept my apologies for the broken blinds at the villa. I will arrange to get these fixed and of course there is no charge to you for this at all.
Great villa, good location!
This villa is great. It has lots of space, plenty of beds and heated pool. All you can ask for!
Well maintained in a nice quite neighbourhood and close to Disney and other places.
We look forward to having you stay at our villa again soon.
4 miles from Disney, approx 1hours drive to Atlantic & Gulf Coasts
