About Dawn Murray

My name is Dawn Murray from the UK and live with my husband Alan and 2 children.

Dawn Murray purchased this house in 2011

Why Dawn Murray chose Sunset Lakes

This is our second home on Sunset Lakes. Before we purchased our original villa, we looked at many, many Florida homes and communities to find our perfect one, then we walked through the door of Villa Sunrise Dream (our first villa) and knew we had found everything we had been looking for and more - space, comfort, luxury, all in the perfect location, and only 4 miles -less than 10 minutes to the Magical World of Disney. Then we saw the lake views - WOW! We knew then that no other would do!

From that time we have loved both visiting ourselves and sharing our home with out wonderful guests so much, that we decided to take the opportunity to purchase the house next door, which we named Villa Sunset Dream. Since then we have continually upgraded and enhanced our wonderful homes to make it even more special for you, our guests. Now you need look no further, you have just found the perfect home, we extend you a warm welcome for your vacation of a lifetime....

What makes this house unique

Amazing lake views, a huge master suite on each floor, balcony, gated up scale community and one of the closest to the Disney parks. Unrivalled customer service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dawn,

Thanks for the email, we had a fantastic holiday thank you, the villa was absolutely excellent. It was really spacious, meaning the entire family could spread themselves out nicely.As you are aware it was my retirement treat to my family so we only actually took one child who was only six weeks old, she was a little too young to appreciate the parks. The games room provided the scene for evening family tournaments and a league, the pool area was also really well used. The location was really good and once we mastered the shortcut to the Disney parks we were able to get there and back really quickly. A couple of us went out for morning runs down to the 192 and back, it was lovely watching the hot air balloons rising from the distance to the front of the villa, and the sunrise and sunsets were lovely. The villa was really well equipped and we would really like to return for a slightly less hectic holiday in the future. It was a bit difficult trying to fit in all the parks in just 2 weeks.

The house was very clean and beautiful. The pool was wonderful! The pool heat was defiantly worth it! I have 2 small children (4 and 2) and the pool was their favorite part! They loved the bedroom with all the Disney dolls! So much was provided for the kids that I didn't even realize! There were toys and all kinds of amenities for them (strollers, high chairs, car seat, pack and plays) it was very nice! The door leading to the pool was child proof which was such a relief. I really didnt have to worry about anything! If you are looking for a way to experience Disney (which was only 10-15 minutes from the house) this is the way to go! The owner answered all my questions in timely responses and was very accommodating!!!! Cannot wait to plan another trip!

Beautiful Home in a great neighbourhood, very close to all amenities, including Disney

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the house. We stayed for two weeks, which really gave us time to get settled and relax. The pool and hot tub were great, kids played in the pool daily. Best part was that the kids could go swimming whenever they wanted, not on someone else's schedule or with other people around them. House was great, lots of space and all things provided. We did not feel like we were missing anything. We would definitely recommend this for any family or two families to stay at, lots of room.

Excellent rental home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

As advertised an excellent 5 bedroom house overlooking a lake with beautiful sunsets. I was there with my family of 5 (kids 13, 10 and 8) along with my parents for a week. At no point did we feel like we were tripping over each other so the space was great. Short drives to supermarket, drug store and Orlando attractions made this a very nice holiday. We had one issue with the pool not coming up to temperature but the service man came right away to fix it. Lots of restaurants too but we ate in and used BBQ so saved big $$ on food.

I would recommend it to anyone with a family. You could easily have two families of 4 or 5 stay there too or a bunch of golfers on a golf trip. Same owners of house next door so could have quite a crowd there!

We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

This villa met all our expectations and more. We were greeted with a spacious, spotless, and welcoming home the moment we arrived. A few bits and pieces for breakfast had already been left out for us (a nice little touch)

The pool area is lovely, private and very relaxing. Can't beat a soak in the Jacuzzi after a long (but fun) day in the parks. There's also some very friendly local ducks in the mornings looking for some breakfast.

The location of the villa really was spot on, and the short cut to Disney that Dawn provided was a real help.

This villa really has it all, you WILL NOT be disappointed with your stay here. So go for it!

I've recommended this Villa to friends, and will not hesitate to book with Dawn and this fantastic villa again.

You wont regret it!

Superb villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Hi Dawn,

Just wanted to drop you a few lines to say how fabulous your villa is. A little bit of luxury in Paradise. Excellent location - on Disney's doorstep but only an hour from the beach.

From the booking process to actually staying at the villa everything was efficient, friendly and immaculately maintained and super equipped. Sitting on the patio looking out over the lake was a joy.

Many thanks.

Our perfectly situated home is only 4 miles from Disney on west US192- why not return for a leisurely lunch and swim before returning later in the day for the evening entertainment or show; There are numerous restaurants close by as well as mini-golf and large supermarkets for your supplies.

Universal and Seaworld are 15 minutes away via the I-4 motorway.

If golfing is your pleasure you will not be disappointed by the superb courses nearby. Alternatively, fire up the BBQ and enjoy the fantastic sunset over the lake around your own private pool. For your evening entertainment dinner shows such as Arabian Nights and Medieval Times are close by.

A little further afield Bush Gardens in Tampa is one not to miss and only 45-50 minutes drive away, while The Kennedy Space Centre is 1 hour away. For those beach lovers the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts are a pleasant 1-2 hour drive away. For shopping there are several Malls in the area. Port Canaveral, for a short cruise is 1 hour away.
