We had a wonderful holiday staying at this property. Everything about it was fantastic. It was modern, spacious, well-maintained and clean. Location for parks, restaurant, shops and other attractions was ideal. Communication with the owners was easy and prompt. We would not hesitate in returning to this villa in the future.

Great house for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The Lake House at Sunset Lakes was a great place to gather two families for our trip to Disney. The listing description was accurate and the layout was great for our group. The property was clean, well-maintained and we found everything we needed when making family meals. The owners provided great customer service and I would recommend this property to friends and/or relatives. Thank you!

High Quality Orlando Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was a high quality villa with everything you could possibly want for a vacation, from the furnishings to the entertainment system provided with TV's/DVD's in all bedrooms. The pool area was very relaxing with sweeping views over the lake made for some relaxing downtime after exhaustive days at the parks.

Booking and payment and all communication with Karen and Mike was easy and straightforward and I would not hesitate to book this or the other villa they have when visiting Florida again.

Confortable, Clean, Equipped, near the parks

  • 4 of 5

We found the house very clean and odorless. And just as described in the photos.

The house is very confortable and very well equiped.

The beds were hotel-class and very confortable, which is nice after day-long at the parks.

The view was nice and the pool worked OK, although we were not able to find the pool ilumation switch.

The entertainment system was complete and had a lot of DVDs available, as well as game cards, and table games and books. We were not able to make Netflix work (and I could not find instructions). Apparently it needed a credit card to make it work and, I as not willing to do that. Perhaps Netlflix subscription should be included.

The kitchen was very well equipped. We only missed a kitchen grill for pancakes, bacon, eggs, etc. One of the coffee machines was not working and it was replaced in 24hrs!! (thank you)

The reservation process was smooth and KAren&Mike took care of all my inquiries. I was a bit worried that the reservation had to be paid directly through Paypal instead of via Homeaway. This proved not to be an inconvenient. The guarantee deposit was returned inmediately (thank you). We were also able to make an early check of a small fee and worked fine.

Overall, this is a very good place for short or long vacations. We are a family of 6 and all of us enjoyed the house.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property is exactly as pictured. It is clean, well furnished, and very comfortable. The pool is a great feature, however you are extremely close to your neighbors. The lake view is very relaxing and you can also fish. The house is close to all attractions, restaurants, and activities. I am VERY particular about where I stay and the inside of this house is perfect.
