Hi, we are Brian & Carol ,Tony & Karen, Carly & Steven. We bought this gorgeous property as our home in Florida. We are completely thrilled and over the moon to own such a dream property, we renovated the house when we purchased it and continue to upgrade 'The Retreat', our aim is to make 'The Retreat' the perfect home away from home for ourselves and our guests.
Brian Williams purchased this villa in 2013
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.
'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.
From the moment we received our welcome letter and comprehensive directions/useful information from the owner, we had a good feeling about our impending visit to The Retreat, and we were not disappointed. Access to the property via a unique entry code was straight forward, and despite being tired following our transatlantic flight, and shopping en route, we felt at home the minute we walked through the front door. The whole house had a light and airy feel to it, the soft furnishings were luxurious yet homely, and the extra large king bed in the master bedroom on the first floor was oh so comfy (can't vouch for the other beds as there were only the two of us, but they all looked to be of similar high quality). The Disney themed twin bedrooms and family bathroom are a lovely touch and will surely delight any children staying at the property. The house very much felt like a "home" due to all the extras we found such as books, CDs, DVDs, games etc as well as a plentiful supply of towels, pool towels, bed linen etc and a fully equipped kitchen. The outside space and pool were an absolute delight, along with the games room which was also well equipped and great fun. We opted to have the pool heated for the week and found it to be lovely and warm (especially if kept covered when not in use). As if all of the above was not enough, the location of the property is perfect for access to all of the theme parks, and within very easy reach of numerous food outlets situated along the US 192. It is situated in a very safe and peaceful gated residential community with amazing views across the lake - just the perfect setting to return to after a full on day at the parks! To summarise, we found the photographs and description of the property and facilities to be accurate, and the owner to be extremely easy and friendly to deal with. We would not hesitate recommending The Retreat to friends and family, and, in fact, have already booked to take our children and grandchildren back for an extended stay in 2018!
We are a family of 2 parents, and two 22yr old sons. We have stayed at the resort 3 times previously with prior owners...this is the first with Brian. The home is just as comfortable as it always has been. My husband (carpenter) had a few points...soffit needs repair on back of house, refrigerator needs to be leveled and secured and drain on pool deck seemed to be clogged. He and sons caught and released 38 bass! Best fishing in years. Pool heat was not needed. New outdoor furniture very nice. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of leftover supplies....I know I know it is listed as such but we have rented homes for the last 16 yrs and have never had such minimum supplies.....we have always left our "Leftovers ie paper plates, napkins, dish soap, baggies, etc" and appreciated when others did as well...perhaps maybe this practice can be installed again...I assume the cleaning company removes the leftovers. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to the upcoming stays in the future. BRIAN was very easy and nice to work with...Thanks for a great stay! JULIE
After 5 busy days at New York it was great to arrive at The Retreat and totally relax.
The villa was beautiful and just as pictured on the website. It was very modern and clean. My hubby thought it was a bonus being able to watch premiership football on the tv. We loved the heated pool and made good use of it, the view from the pool area was lovely. We also enjoyed sitting out at the pool at night watching the Disney fireworks around 9.00pm.
The Retreat is around 5/10 minute traffic dependent drive away from Rolling Oaks which has lots of nice restaurants Longhorn, Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze, Texas Roadhouse and more.
Brian was great to deal with and very speedy with his replies. Loved our stay and tried to return later this year but already booked. We will definitely return our next again trip.
We really enjoyed having Christmas at your lovely home we were there for eleven days.We had 14 day tickets for Busch Gardens, Sea World, and Aquatica Water Park, it sure was nice to have some place nice to come home to.The pool and was very relaxing after a long day and the view of the lake was gorgeous.It was nice to be able to be outside barbecue supper on the built in grill and watch the kids in the pool at the same time.We are already starting to plan our trip to visit your home again soon.

Port Huron, Mi.
Nice house with plenty of room. Good location. Strange was that there was nothing left from previous vacationers. Not even salt and pepper or some dishwasing soap. We left behind dishwash tablet, salt&pepper, ketchup, mutsaard, laundry detergent, wine, chips. I can not believe that other people take everything back home, you can't take it on the airplane.
Have stayed in Orlando many times and this villa has been the best yet. Fantastic villa....fantastic location, only minutes from Disney. Sitting by the pool overlooking the lake is very relaxing after a day at the Parks...or shops. Plenty wildlife as well. Brian was very helpful during the booking enquiries and partly why we were drawn to The Retreat. If we decide to visit Orlando again we will definitely book The Retreat again.
The Retreat villa occupies possibly the best position on Sunset Lakes for proximity to community pool and play area, fishing deck but also quiet cul de sac position with no through traffic. The Retreat has beautiful views of Sunset Lake and an early wake up is rewarded with a views of a breathtaking sunrise over Sunset Lake.
