About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

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 newly added Games Room is equipped with a beautiful mahogany slate bed Pool Table, a Foosball Table (Table Football) and an Illuminated Electric Darts Board. Board Games, books and Pool Toys are available for younger children to enjoy.

The ground floor Master Bedroom has a King size bed, Cable TV & DVD, ceiling fan and direct and private access to the pool deck. The large Ensuite Bathroom has 2 walk-in Closets, Twin Hand basins, a Garden Tub and a Separate Toilet.

Completing the bedrooms on this ground floor and located at the front of the villa with quiet and peaceful views towards the conservation area is our Triple room consisting of a twin bunk bed over a full /double bed and suitable for adults and children alike. For extra entertainment we’ve added a flat screen TV and an X-Box with a selection of games.

The remaining 3 bedrooms are all upstairs and lead off from the galleried balcony which overlooks the Family Room below. From this balcony you can see views of both the conservation area to the front of us and the lake to the back. Also from here and early in the morning, Hot Air Balloons can frequently be seen, floating peacefully over the misty lakes.

The second of our Master Bedrooms is here on this first floor. It has a King Size bed, cable TV & DVD, ceiling fan and fantastic views over our pool and the lake. The Ensuite Bathroom is even bigger than the ground floor one and has Twin Hand basins, a Large Walk-in Shower, a Walk-in Closet and Separate Toilet.

Our Twin Room is also on this floor and is at the front if the villa again with views over the conservation area. This room has Cable TV & DVD, a ceiling fan and shares a bathroom with the double room across the hallway. This Double Room has a Queen Size bed, Cable TV & DVD and a ceiling fan. All bedrooms have Clock Radios/Alarms.

We also provide a key operated safe for your valuables, and free use of a Cot/Crib, Highchair & a Stroller.

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. There is also a Large Covered Lanai with ceiling fan and lights to enable you to dine comfortably Al-Fresco or just to use as a retreat from the Florida Sunshine. A large Gas BBQ/Grill is also provided.

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.

Our villa and Sunset Lakes is a truly magical place and we hope you and your family and friends will love it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very enjoyable stay at Lynn's house. The accomodate was light, clean and airy, the view from the pool across the lake was delightful. We have been holidaying in Florida for 15 years and would recommend this property without hesitation. Robert, who looks after the house, was extremely helpful A very pleasant neighbourhood

Everything perfect except service

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.
