About Jorge and Sue Fernandes
We are Jorge and Sue Fernandes and we love to visit our home in Florida. We live in Stockport, which is in the north of England and work in the Hotel industry, running a family business. Our business takes up a lot of our time, but when we are not working we love to spend time with our two daughters and plan our Florida holidays. While in Florida we work hard to ensure that our home is a true 'home from home' and is somewhere we love to spend time with our family - we hope that you will too.
Jorge and Sue Fernandes purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Jorge and Sue Fernandes chose Sunset Lakes
Our love affair with Florida started in 1994 on our first visit. From then on we were hooked, and were regular Hotel visitors until 2002 when we bought our dream home at Sunset Lakes. As soon as we stepped foot in our villa and looked over the lake views to the back we knew this was the one. The layout, location and size of our home just made so much sense to us, and gave us the space we needed to visit with our extended family and friends. Since then we have enjoyed many wonderful vacations with our growing family and we visit Sunset Lakes at least once a year. On every visit we spend a lot of time on each visit making sure that our home is kept to the highest standards. We are also lucky to have a great local management team who are on hand for our guests needs. The location of Sunset Lakes is one of the major benefits of our home as it is just 1 mile from the bustling 192 highway which has a large range of entertainment, restaurants, bars and shops. Disney is also on the doorstep, along with access to all the other Florida attractions via the nearby Interstate 4.
What makes this Villa unique
Sunset Lakes is a rare gem amongst the large rental estates in the area. Set around two lakes the community has just 160 homes and is surrounded by conservation land, giving it a small, rural feel while being just a mile from the Highway 192 and the Disney parks beyond. What do we love about Villa Santa Cruz? Being close enough to the parks to come home to recharge our batteries before heading back out for more fun! Being able to sit in the sun while taking in the stunning views of Sunset Lake Being able to soak away our aches and pains in the hot tub. Listening to the local wildlife, and fishing in the Lake Our teenage daughter especially loves having her own huge Master suite and en-suite bathroom! We love having a little peace and quiet while the kids are enjoying themselves in the games room. But most of all, we enjoy the fact that we can all spend our vacation time together in a place that we love.

We had a great time in Florida.
Stayed here for 3 weeks 6 Adults 1 child. The house had everything we needed and was comfortable. The owners were great to deal with and their communication was really brilliant. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future.
Been to better
Tatty and needs work.
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Santa Cruz. The house was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. All the amenities were wonderful, including the pool and hot tub, and my family loved fishing in the lake!
Great for our family getaway
Overall, our stay at Sunset Villa was very pleasant. Jorge and Sue are very responsive, and the amenities their house provides were great for our needs while traveling with an infant and a toddler. The pool and hot tub were especially appreciated after walking around the parks all day. The house is kept very clean, although the showers in both master bathrooms could use a little extra care. The location was great for getting around to the parks and restaurants throughout the week. However, it was a bit farther from the airport than we originally anticipated, taking anywhere from 30-60 minutes depending on time of day/roads taken. Thank you both, again, for a fun week in FL.
Very accommodating place
Two families totaling seven stayed here for ten nights. The house is comfortable and roomy along with having a great pool with above ground hot tub.
Your access to all the parks is perfect.
Gated community. This house will make your holiday complete. FYI eat at Bruno’s!!
