Our luxury 4 bedroom fully air-conditioned pool villa is in a fantastic location at Sunset Lakes, just off Highway 192 in the West Kissimmee area.
Our vacation getaway is truly a home from home, furnished to a high standard and with all the amenities you would expect, including a host of hi-tech features. This is a spacious and welcoming holiday destination within a secure gated community making an ideal destination for your vacation.
Sunset Lakes is a small, prestigious gated community and one of the closest to Orlando's main attractions. It is a mature development of detached pool homes surrounding 2 natural lakes, which attract many varieties of fish and wildlife. Relaxing in the peace and tranquility of this fabulous location it is hard to imagine that you are less than 10 minutes to the Disney parks. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoon relaxing by your own private pool and then return to the parks in minutes.
It also provides excellent access to the other attractions in the Orlando area, such as Seaworld and Universal Studios. Shops and restaurants are just a few minutes away and there are several high quality golf courses nearby. Easy access can be obtained onto Interstate 4 providing links to other parts of Florida including the Gulf Coast and Daytona Beach.
On site there is a communal pool & children’s play area, and if you bring your own rods you can fish in the well-stocked lake (catch and release). Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida.
Sunset Villa provides a spacious, light and airy open plan living area with two large comfortable sofas. The cool, white tiling has now been extended to include all living areas (the bedrooms are still carpeted). The living room overlooks the swimming pool and has a large sliding patio door allowing access onto the pool deck. There is a 46-inch flat screen TV with HD cable (including Starz and HBO channels) and an upscaling DVD player with a good selection of DVDs for all ages. Also we have a Sony Playstation 3 with the MOVE system, which allows you to play a selection of exciting games (including Harry Potter) using only the motion of your body. The PS3 will also play BluRay disks, a selection of which are provided. For musical entertainment there is a stereo CD player and a BOSE SoundDock so that you can enjoy your very own music from your iPod/iPhone.
The dining area has an extending table and chairs seating up to 8 people. There are a further two stools which can be used at the adjacent breakfast bar. The dining area has direct access to the lanai (shaded patio area with ceiling light/fan) via sliding doors. This area also houses the ‘home office’ corner – just bring your own laptop to be totally connected to the fast broadband wifi service, and connect wirelessly or by the provided cable to the laser printer – great for printing out your boarding cards before departure, spreadsheets or other documents. Two portable telephones are provided, with unlimited free calls to local and US national landlines.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with full size cooker, double door fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser, double sink with waste disposal, microwave oven, dishwasher, electric kettle, food mixer, blender and many other appliances. Everything you would need is here, whether putting together a simple salad or preparing a full multi course meal. The cupboards are well stocked with cutlery, crockery, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, serving dishes and lots of plastic ware for your outside dining by the pool.
Pool and Lanai
Three sets of patio doors lead directly onto the very private screened pool deck where you will find plenty of high quality sun loungers, tables, chairs and side tables to enjoy the Florida sunshine until late into the evening. There is a shaded lanai area that has an overhead fanlight and a table and chairs for outside dining. The pool can be heated upon request during the cooler months and is very private with mature hedges screening the views from both sides and to the rear. The pool has been completely resurfaced in January 2013 to bring back that sparkling blue colour to the water!
The Games Room, formerly a double garage, contains a pool table and foosball/table soccer, and sofas for lounging. There is also a box with a selection of board games. For car parking, there is a full double driveway outside the garage, featuring a motion activated security light – plenty of room for two cars, side by side.
The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms with a layout that gives the ability for combined families / larger parties to holiday together but have their own private space. Further sleeping accommodation is provided by the extremely comfortable queen sofa bed in the lounge. All bedrooms now feature Sony iPod/iPhone docking alarm radio clocks, so every room in the home now has the ability to charge/listen to your iPod/iPhone.
All the bedding is provided and the beds are made up with clean linen before you arrive. Extra bedding is provided should you need it. The villa has air-conditioning throughout, so will remain at a constant cool temperature that will make you feel comfortable even if the temperatures are on the up and up outside, and will also help towards giving you a good nights sleep.
The King master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, radio alarm clock and en-suite bathroom with wc, garden tub bath, large walk in shower cubicle and twin vanity units (and hairdryer). There is a walk-in closet off the bathroom with electronic safe and lots of hanging storage space. The master bedroom also has a ceiling fan, full length windows overlooking the pool, a 32 inch flat screen cable TV and upscaling DVD player. Both bedroom and en suite have wide door access, making them fully wheelchair accessible.
The Queen room has a queen size bed also with luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper, radio alarm clock, ceiling fan and en-suite shower room/wc. This bedroom also has a 32 inch flat screen cable TV and upscaling DVD player.
There are two further bedrooms with twin beds, including a Disney themed room, both with ceiling fans, 26 inch flat screen cable TVs and upscaling DVD players. One of the twin rooms also has a Playstation 2 games system with a selection of games. One has direct access to an en-suite shower room/wc. The other is just beside the third bathroom which has a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc.
The villa has a folding cot/playpen with bedding, a high chair, two lightweight strollers for those long days at the parks and a bed guard for the toddler who would like to be in a 'big' bed but isn't totally confident about being out of a cot.
Although we are 'on Disney's doorstep', we have tried to strike a balance in the decoration of our home. While the Disney bedroom and surrounding areas have lots of Disney links, we have kept the main living areas 'Disney-free' since not everyone who visits Orlando is 'Mouse-obsessed'. We hope our guests appreciate this approach.
Care for the Environment
We have made a start in our contribution to 'saving the planet', after realising that we have more than 60 light bulbs throughout the villa!
All bathroom lights (30 of them!) have now been changed to low energy bulbs, using a quarter of the electricity they used to use. They also produce less heat, making it more comfortable for guests and allowing the air conditioning to work more efficiently. As other bulbs throughout the home need replacing, low energy equivalents will be used.
New theme Park!
The new Florida Legoland theme park is now open at Winter Haven. Sunset Lakes is ideally placed, with travel to the park taking around 45 minutes.
Proud to be Scottish and British, we live half way between Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland.
Harry and Jean McKerral purchased this villa in 2011
The blue Florida sky and 25 degrees C on a visit in March 2011 persuaded us to take the plunge and buy in this fantastic location!
We love having a 'home from home' so close to all the action, but in a quiet, safe, gated community.
We have furnished our home to our own high standards and live there ourselves as much as we can!
I just wanted to thank you and compliment you on your lovely home. When we got there we could smell how clean it was. The kids loved the pool and the distances to all the parks were perfect. We also loved the private community. We had a wonderful vacation.
Sunset Lakes villa stay 23/06/16 – 14/07/16
Overall we were very satisfied with the villa as a whole and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire stay at this beautifully designed and well kept villa. The villa was well situated near the Disney Theme Parks and there were plenty of different shops and restaurants just about 5 minutes away from our front door. We have stayed in many other villas before staying in this one and we all agreed that this one made us feel safer as this was inside a gated community with CCTV cameras; this helped us to enjoy the holiday even more as we did not have as much worry about people getting into the community and causing havoc or breaking into villas. As stated above we loved the villa as a whole; although when we were shown the pictures of the villa before agreeing to stay here; the sofas in the living area were in fact black leather sofas; yet once we arrived we found that this was not the case and the sofas that had replaced the leather ones were very uncomfortable for us; although as we were there on holiday we did not spend a great amount of time inside the house itself. However I would advise that the pictures be updated to show this change of furniture if they have not already been updated. Apart from us finding the sofas uncomfortable the rest of the villa was immaculate and could not be faulted! Everything was incredibly clean for us on arrival; the bedrooms where tidy and ready for us to use as soon as we arrived there; and the pool was cleaned to a high standard regularly. We were also offered a ‘Welcome Pack’ on arrival as we arrived around dinner time so this was perfect to have waiting for us as it included the essentials needed such as milk, orange juice and treats for us to eat so as we did not need to go shopping straight away. As we flew from the UK we were also given the option to stay in the villa a little longer than normal before checking out as the owners themselves live in the UK and understand that flights from Orlando to the UK only fly out late afternoon. We cannot thank the owners enough for letting us stay in their beautiful villa for our three week stay in Orlando. We would definitely recommend this villa to our family and friends looking for somewhere to stay and we would definitely consider staying here again!
The Orr Family +1
Our family, six adults, two granddaughters 12 and 14, all loved staying at Sunset Villa Florida. The house had everything you could ask for. The owners were exceptionally good to deal with as was their property manager Robert. The location is ideal, close to Disney and Universal. The McKeller's provided lots of very helpful information regarding getting around the area, restaurants etc. You could feel very confident booking this location. I needed a wheelchair accessible house and we managed quite well here. You may need to make a couple of adjustments but nothing you cannot overcome if you are in a wheelchair.
Our stay at your place was absolutely wonderful. Plenty of space, each of the kids had their own bedroom which was a big plus for us. All the amenities where there and in great working condition. The pool was great and just what was needed after a long day at one of the amusement parks. The villa is more than close to the parks. The entire place was spotless and well maintained. The cable tv went out once during our stay and management addressed the issue immediately. Would recommend your villa to anyone staying in the Orlando area. We definitely will be staying here again on our next Orlando vacation. The welcome basket was greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
Location of villa was great for all the parks, shops and restaurants in the area. The gated community also gave us an added sense of security. Villa was spotless and the games room and additional video games etc were enjoyed by the boys. Having a safe in the villa was also an added bonus as we have never had this facility in any of the villas we have had in previous visits to Orlando. The Management and Owners were very friendly and helpful.
AMAZING!!!!!! This house was extraordinarily clean and fully equipped to the "T" including Tequila shot cups!...lol. The kids really enjoyed their time spent here. It had many entertainments for them, even adults enjoyed. We had chilly days and house was warm and cozy. The heated pool was used during those chilly days. Plenty, plenty of towels and blankets. The owner was prompt getting back with any questions. Manager on site was extremely readily available with quick call backs! Plenty of stores near by for a quick shopping. Quiet and safe neighborhood to take nice walks. Thanks Harry and Jean for making our stay comfortable!
This was our first time staying in a villa in Florida when we come to Disney and we could not have picked a better place. The house was very clean and well maintained. The house is very spacious. Management company is very responsive-I called with a question and they called me back right away. The house is only 15 minutes to the Disney parks parking lots. Very convenient location to super markets and restaurants. The owners are also very responsive and were a pleasure to deal with. This is a great villa and I would recommend the villa to friends and family.
