About Brian Wiliams

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.

Brian Wiliams purchased this villa in 2013

Why Brian Wiliams chose Sunset Lakes

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.

What makes this villa unique

'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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely perfect holiday. Fell in love with the house and especially the location on the lake.

Minutes to Disney. Loads to do. Lots of shops. Nearby restaurants

Spacious well cared for house. Many many thanks

Family friendly place with a great location for the Disney parks.

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this location with family members from all over the USA. It was a great place that accommodated all of us, including grandparents, 20 something kids and 50+. We also had Christmas dinner here for 10 other family members visiting from nearby Winter Haven, FL.

Everything is clearly marked through out the house (which switch goes with which light etc.). It has everything you can think of needing for your vacation including pool towels. A great game room in the garage, downstairs master as well as an upstairs master, large rooms, kitchen table as well as dinning room table, also plenty of outside pool chairs and outside tables. Pool is really nice and also a baby pool.

Working with Brian has been very easy. I can't say enough about this property. I would highly recommend to anyone, families with kids (portable baby crib, high chair and stroller are here for your use), also downstairs master was great for older guests who can't climb stairs. Great location, very close to Disney parks, shopping, eating places and activities.

We all had a great time and I can't wait until I can go back.

Owner's Response: Kim, We are grateful you and your family chose 'The Retreat' for your Christmas vacation and pleased that you all had a good time.

We are always quick to answer any queries from our guests and our great management company are available 24/7 for any issues that arise to give our guests total peace of mind. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back in the future. Thank you, 'The Retreat' at Sunset Lakes

Great Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for three weeks in December. The Place is excellent! Our family includes an 18 months old baby and he absolutely loved the small pool! And we loved the big one! Make sure to include the heating of the pool in the winter months as the temperature can drop quite a lot at night. Everything in the house was as advertise and very adequate. We loved our stay!

We believe 'The Retreat' caters for all our visitors and are glad the baby was able to have fun and be safe in the small pool while the adults enjoyed the big pool. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Thank You, 'The Retreat' at Sunset Lakes

Fantastic Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and 15 year old daughter) had an absolutely fabulous time at this property, and would not hesitate to recommend it. It was everything we imagined from the 'photos - beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, with fantastic lake views and a location very close to Disney. Felt like a real home, not just a holiday rental.

Owner's Response: George, Thank you for choosing 'The Retreat' as your vacation home for you and your family. We have worked hard to make 'The Retreat' a true home away from home offering you the perfect vacation villa so close to Disney. Our unique Lakeside location is much sought after, we believe there is no better way to have breakfast than sitting outside around the private pool overlooking Sunset Lake. We hope to welcome you back soon. 'The Retreat' at Sunset Lakes

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! House was large, clean and lots to do. The beds were very comfortable, lots of sleeping room. There were plenty of towels provided for both showers and pool. Game room was a lot of fun when it was raining. We really enjoyed it! The only downfall was the lights and the water feature did not work on the pool.

Owner's Response: Michelle, Firstly thanks for choosing to spend your vacation staying at 'The Retreat' and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have replaced the pool lights you mention in your review so the pool should now be back to its fully illuminated self, welcoming you back from a busy day enjoying all that Florida has to offer. We are happy to hear that 'The Retreat' provided you enough entertainment to keep your family occupied and entertained. We look forward to welcoming you back for you next vacation. Thank you, 'The Retreat' at Sunset Lakes

The Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was my 7th trip to Orlando and The Retreat is the best place I have stopped in. The villa is huge, very clean, lovely pool and the view across the lake is a beautiful sight to wake up to. The Retreat is in a lovely quiet gated community which is very close to shops, restaurants and of course the Theme Parks. The owner Brian was very helpful and very quick to answer any questions. I would definitely stop at The Retreat again I can't fault it.

Owner's Response: Cal, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at 'The Retreat' and thank you for choosing to stay with us and leaving such a kind review. We conducted an extensive search throughout Kissimmee for the perfect vacation home before deciding to buy 'The Retreat'. We believe 'The Retreat' sits in the perfect location to keep you close enough to the action but provides tranquility when you want to relax and rest. We look forward to welcoming you back when you next visit. Thanks 'The Retreat' at Sunset Lakes
