Summary

‘Pourquoi Pas?’ Executive Villa Sunset Lakes

Our Stunning Executive 4 Bed (2 Masters) 3 Bathroom pool/spa home is located behind Formosa Garden Shopping Plaza, on Highway 192 and only 4 miles from Disney Maingate. Sunset Lakes is small, quiet Gated Community with conservation areas, private lakes, community pool and play area. Spacious lounge, dining area and kitchen are open plan. Our up market home is fully air-conditioned and has ceiling fans in all rooms, 5 HD Cable TV’s, 2 DVD’s, 5 iPod/MP3 docking stations, Playstation 2 and air-conditioned Games Room. The private fully screened pool and Hot Tub has coloured fibre optic lighting and established tropical landscaping creating total privacy. Off road parking for 2 cars.

Description

Located in the prestigious gated community of Sunset Lakes, and occupying an oversized corner lot, our magnificent 4 bed / 3 bath lakefront vacation home, sleeping up to 8 adults + 1 infant, will delight you with its homely welcoming ambience and fabulous facilities.

Fully licensed and approved by the State of Florida, it provides the safe, well designed and upmarket accommodation that you and your family deserve.

And, whilst our exclusive community is just four short miles from Walt Disney World®, it is far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of the parks and affords a restful and tranquil setting, guaranteed to get you into that laid back Florida groove.

So whether you wish to relax and unwind in our decadent hot tub, try your hand at a little hi-tech gamesmanship on our Playstation or just sink into our sumptuous furnishings and surf the net utilising our high-speed wi-fi connection, you’ll discover that all your holiday requirements have been taken care of with style and flair.

To discover all of the great features that make Pourquoi Pas? so popular, we invite you to take a leisurely read of the details below…

Private Pool

Without a doubt, one of the most popular features of our gorgeous Florida home is the inviting waters of our fully screened private pool. Surrounded by lush tropical planting and swaying palm trees, you will feel like you have been transported into a jungle paradise each time you set foot onto the pool deck.

Our solar heating system with energy-efficient electric backup ensures that you never turn as blue as the water when you enter the pool, and our self-indulgent 22 jet hot tub is always available to massage those aching muscles after a long day in search of that famous mouse!

Naturally, we’ve provided comfy sun loungers for those wishing to top up their tan, although beneath the shaded lanai you’ll also discover weatherproof furniture and a cooling outdoor fan for those who prefer a little less sunshine. Both the pool and the hot tub also feature underwater colour change lighting, ensuring that you can extend your fun and relaxation right into those sultry Florida evenings, and there’s even a poolside shower to provide a cooling respite from the wrap-around heat.

Access to the pool and deck areas is via a sliding patio door from either the master bedroom, dining room or family room.

Family Room

At the heart of the house, our spacious and inviting Family Room has been stylishly equipped with your leisure and convenience in mind. Tiled throughout to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, the triple patio doors present the opportunity to effectively open up the entire room to encompass the glorious pool area and lush tropical backdrop outside.

Elegantly furnished with two huge comfy chairs and sofa, light wood tables, decorative lamps and complimenting decorative accents, we guarantee that many happy hours will be spent enjoying the widescreen 55-inch cable TV, DVD & VCR, stereo system, iPod dock, movie library, family games and books that have been provided for your pleasure.

Kids & Baby Equipment

We understand that bringing your own toys, games and baby equipment on vacation not only takes up valuable space but quite frankly is also a real pain. However, here at Pourquoi Pas?, we’ve got you covered, and are delighted to provide a toy box full of child-friendly goodies, family games, PS with games, pool toys, 3 strollers (buggies), high chair, crib (cot), bed rails, playpen, electric bottle warmer and food grinder, to ensure that our younger guests are fully equipped to hit the ground running.

Games Room

Our newly created Games Room is AIR CONDITIONED for your comfort - many villas have beautiful games rooms but are too hot to fully enjoy. We have an 8 x 4 Slate Bed Pool Table, Air Hockey Table, Foosball Table and Electronic Dart Board. For the spectators, we have included a Bar Table and Chairs. Although the games room is situated in the double garage we still have off-road parking for 2 cars.

Fine Dining

Adjoining the Family Room and providing further access to the pool deck, our formal dining area featuring a stylish table and chairs in soft cream tones is the perfect setting for any family meal.

And So To Bed

All of the Bedrooms at Pourquoi Pas? have been decorated and furnished with peace and tranquillity in mind. Luxuriously carpeted and tastefully equipped, they will provide a welcome haven of relaxation at the end of another exciting Floridian day.

Kitchen

Our extremely spacious and fully equipped kitchen, complete with a superb granite breakfast bar and countertop with complimenting stools, features all the practicality and convenience you would expect, and like the rest of our home, has been thoughtfully stocked with every possible labour saving appliance. In addition to the full-size cooker (stove), fridge freezer with automatic ice dispenser, dishwasher, microwave oven and waste disposal, you’ll also find an extensive selection of cookware, together with knives, forks, plates, bowls, cups and saucers etc. In fact, everything you need to create a full family meal or a simple cup of coffee!

I was very impressed with the Villa. Clean and comfortable with everything one could wish for to make a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Norma and Sean were so helpful and approachable, always willing to assist. Villa is an excellent position for all major attractions. We have had a wonderful stay and will highly recommend the villa to friends and family. Thank you for all your assistance in booking the villa. Steve, Cheltenham UK

Thank you for letting us stay in your stunning villa. We have all had a wonderful time and would love to stay longer. The beds are so comfortable and it was hard to leave them. The Games room is great fun and the pool table fantastic. Your villa is definitely one of the best we have stayed in and is in a great position for Disney. We would love to return. The Cockerell’s Cambs UK (Kevin is returning next Oct)

Well, we have certainly had an amazing 2 weeks here in good old Florida. This has been our 4th visit and this house has got to be one of our favourites. The view of the lake is amazing not to mention the friendly wildlife. This really has been the perfect backdrop for our family holiday. Especially since the kids finally kicked Dad’s butt at the pool!! Family B W Yorkshire US

----------------------------------------------------------------------

This has been our 5th return to the villa in a decade and another brilliant holiday. The first time we have seen Florida over the Holiday season and it didn’t disappoint. The decorations definitely helped it feel like Christmas since the weather certainly didn’t – beautiful sunshine! Thank you again for the villa, time to save to return again.

Just like to say we had a fantastic time at the house it was really comfortable and had everything we needed. Sunset Lakes is a great location we felt really safe there and it was so peaceful. This was our 4th visit and this was the best house we have stayed in.

The pool is beautiful, it was incredibly warm. We had some unsettled weather the first weekend as Isaac went past but once the storm had passed normal service was resumed. Thanks very much for letting us rent your house, we will save our pennies and hopefully we can afford another trip to Orlando at some point. Thanks, Ian, Karen, Micheal and Emma

"Hi Ely, The Villa was beautiful, everything we could have wished for and we had a fantastic time, we treated it as if it was our own.

Thanks once again. Angie x

p.s The chap from the management company was very nice and helpful."

.....................................

"We all had a fantastic time, brilliant weather and the villa was lovely. Our two boys enjoyed most evenings swimming in the pool and we enjoyed the peace and quiet during the evenings also. We will be going back to Florida in a couple of years so we will keep your details on file for the next time. Thanks once again for the use of your property during our stay"

................................

"Just a short note to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Florida. the villa was lovely and comfortable, ( a real home from home). the whole family were impressed and so convenient for getting around. We did get lost trying to find it the first time, which was not surprising considering the road mapping system out there, but once we got the hang of it we were fine. I hope we left it in good condition for you, if not please let me know. I would like to think we would be able to stay again sometime"

...................................

"Just a short note to say that we had a great holiday. Your villa is lovely. The stroller and cot were well used (thanks). The only slight problem we had was with the weather. I think we had more rain and than sun!!!!!!! I shall be recommending your villa whenever possible"

.................................

I meant to email you as soon as we got back from Florida to tell you how wonderful your home was. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and James and Lewis loved the pool....so did we all. The weather was great and we were sorry to leave. Thank you very much

.....................................

"We (the 5 women) have returned from our stay at your villa in Florida, and it was absolutely marvellous! We had a fantastic time and the property is just gorgeous. We couldn't have made a better choice. Hope to stay there again in the future!"

.........................................

"Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed your villa. As you recall this was our first experience booking a villa via the internet and we were a little sceptical and not really sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased. We had a wonderful time and the villa was great! We really liked the fact that it was just a walk across the yard to the community pool and that the community was gated. The layout of the villa was perfect for two families to share. We have all agreed to do this again. Thanks again for allowing us the use of your villa, it is beautiful"

...................................

Thoroughly impressed with the villa - they couldn't get over how big it was and said it was perfect. They really enjoyed the pool too - the girls were swimming as often as they could! They took some film of the villa and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by it! Fiona and Stuart found Norma to be very friendly and helpful, and they were delighted to discover that she was Scottish!!

............................................................

I will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your villa to anyone I know planning a trip to Florida, it really couldn't be faulted. Here's to the villa being permanently booked up for the coming years (with a fortnight kept aside for the Brett family of course!!) All the best"

..................................

"I rented the home at Sunset Lakes 2 years ago. We had a great time and we want to rent the home again this year. Thank you for your time and I can't wait to hear from you!"

.................................

"Just a quick note to let you know that we are here and it is everything you said and more! We have totally settled in and gone shopping to stock up so we are here to stay! (We wish!) My mom and dad are actually looking at homes"

................................

"Thank you! Everything was great! We really enjoyed the house and the pool. My mom was so happy! We gave my mom and my dad the master bedroom and they did not want to leave. The kids loved the tub with the cool faucet! We hope to be back soon!"

................................

"We had a wonderful time in Florida staying in your Beautiful Home! We loved everything from the artwork to the pool. It was a great vacation! We cant wait to go back! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. We are already trying to plan our next trip. Have a Blessed Holiday - Norma was great. Say thanks to her for us also"

.....................................

"This rental house was beautiful, it had everything you needed. The rooms were big and airy. The pool was great. If I needed something, I picked up the phone and spoke to someone directly. It was a pleasure to stay there and would recommend it to anyone. We sure hope to come back soon!"

......................................

"Thanks again! We really enjoyed our vacation. I think you should check the clocks - they all ran too fast!!!!! Just kidding - Thanks again!"

.................................

"!!! WOW!!! What a wonderful home! Every now & then you hear vacation horror stories but not this vacation...WE ALL LOVED IT! Had a great time, the weather co-operated & your home could not have been better. We took care of it as if it was our own. We are trying to schedule next years vacation to Orlando & if our group number will fit we will try to book your home again! We really liked the advantage of having 2 pools - yours & the outdoor pool across the street. Thank you again for everything!!! Will contact you or the home site again!"

..................................

"Thank you for our stay at your wonderful villa in Kissimmee. It really has been crazy since we came back, and only now am I able to say a huge thank you for the help and support you gave us before our trip. The villa was wonderful and the pictures on the site really don’t do it justice. I took a couple of nice exterior shots if you want one. It was everything you said on your site…and some more. We all had the most wonderful time. Everything was wonderful, and I think we may have to come back and see the places we missed the first time, so I will keep your details on file. Thank you again for everything".

WOW -Fantastic Villa!!!!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The villa was out of this world. For Doctor Who fans it's like a Tardis, l was blown away by the amount of space and rooms within the villa.
Before our stay, the owners were fantastic with their communication due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, they reallocated us throughout these difficult times.
The villa is situated within a gated community offering additional security. The villa is located next to the communal pool and a beautiful lake stocked with fish should you wish to go fishing.
The villa was clean and well equipped to make our stay feel like home from home. The highlight of this villa is the pool and the hot tub, which were great first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
We would highly recommend this villa and would like to thank the owners for the high standards provided throughout the villa.

Thank you for a great review! The Covid years were challenging trying to keep guests holidays special for them - but I think we made it!
A brilliant Management always helps and, of course, great visiting families. Thank you. Ely

This villa is all you need and more!

This villa is all you need and more! Our family of 4 ( two kids) enjoyed every single minute of our stay. The swimming pool and hot tub was a delight and we spent lots of time relaxing in the pool and sunbathing on the deck. The villa is kitted out with everything you need, is beautifully maintained and is in the perfect location with easy access to local shops and restaurants. The Disney parks are a short drive away, so made it the perfect location to access the Disney parks every day.
The owners were brilliant with their communication and arranging our stay, with helpful information and recommendations for our first visit to the USA. Thank you for everything - we had a fantastic time!

Fabulous Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hi Ely
Just packing up to leave your wonderful home in the morning. We have had fabulous time! Thank you so much for allowing us to spend it in your very special Florida home. It’s exactly as we remembered it but to be honest even better. It really does feel like home away from home and we have all had a ball. Even the not so young children (18 & 13) wanted to stay longer and are not looking forward to leaving in the morning. The Location of the Villa is just absolutely fabulous and we feel so safe in the community. Disney, Universal, the premium outlets at Vineland Road, Disney Springs, International Drive and the Mall of Millenia are so accessible and thanks to Norma and Sean we also discovered Margaritaville resort which is new since our last visit. We had a great chat with them on our first day. They are lovely people. The villa has everything we needed and the hot tub and pool were fabulous in the beautiful weather. We can’t thank you enough for your kindness from we contacted you first and we look forward to returning in the near future.

Thanks again

We stayed for 2 weeks during April and had a brilliant time. The sunset lakes complex is beautiful with lots of wildlife. Its gated and feels very safe and secure. The villa itself was great. Beautifully decorated and really comfortable. The games room was brilliant. Pool and hot tub were great. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Thanks for a great review. Sunset Lakes is very popular with guests. The 2 lakes and surrounding woodlands are home to a variety of birds and wildlife. It is very peaceful after a full day at the nearby theme Parks. Come back and visit again.

Great Stay!!

Great Villa - Great Location

Hi Ely and Dave

We just wanted to say thank you again for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

We are leaving today and will miss the relaxed atmosphere (maybe because this time it was just myself and Tina ) but we will be back in November, also to Sunset Lakes.

We can honestly say that this, in 30 years of coming to Florida, has been one of the nicest homes we have stayed in and you appear to have thought of everything.

We will be keeping an eye on your bookings calendar and hope we can stay here again very soon.

Wonderful location for a family holiday

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We visited Orlando in February 2022 and spent 12 days in this lovely, well equipped and beautifully maintained villa. As a family of 7 ranging from 5 years old to 60 years old we headed to Florida under the final restrictions of Covid. The villa was booked in last 2021 for a family birthday celebration and communications with Ely and Dave were very smooth after an initial telephone conversation. On arriving at Orlando airport late Saturday we followed the instructions and found the villa easily - when we got inside we were very impressed and happy with our holiday accommodation. The villa proved to be the perfect base to explore the Disney parks (c 15 minutes away) and Universal (25 mins) but also provided a great place to relax and recover on a couple of off days. The villa is very nicely furnished with comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen and also use of the washing machine and drier which meant we didnt have to take so many clothes (we didn't have to - but we did). We also loved the Pool table, air hockey and table football (a bit confused why there are 13 men each side lol) along with dart board for a couple of games nights. We had a great holiday and if we every return for more Disney then we would love to stay again. Thankyou for allowing us to stay

Home from home and a great Base for the attractions

A fantastically equipped holiday home situated close to the Disney and Universal Attractions. A quiet residential style gated development with a nice looking community pool, though we were more than happy with the villa's own pool and hot tub. The games room was well used as well.There is an abundance of towels and crockery for your use and every appliance you will need. If I was to be really picky a cool box would have been useful....but that is being REALLY picky. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Amazing villa & brilliant location = Perfect

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

From the minute we made our initial contact with the owners to book the villa, to the minute we pulled off the villa drive to head to the airport and fly home, everything was perfect!
The owners made the whole process as simple as possible and there was good communication throughout.
The villas location is ideal for Disney & Universal and the other Orlando theme parks. The gated community of Sunset Lakes is idyllic, so quiet and so well maintained.
We were a party of 4 (Mum, Dad and 2 boys (7 & 8 years old), and the villa had everything we needed and more! The villa is well decorated, modern and clean. It's well equipped and we found everything we needed in the cupboards from dishwasher tabs to mosquito repellent, absolutely everything. The heated pool and hot tub were big holiday favourites. The games room in garage was well stocked with everything else we could need, including scooters and pool toys and rain ponchos!
All in all, this villa helped make our 3 week holiday a fantastic family to remember.
Thank you so much Ely for sharing your beautiful home with us...I'm positive we will be back!

Great villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The villa was in a great location just off the 192, close to Disney and plenty of restaurants. The villa itself was well decorated and had everything we needed during our stay. The recliner sofas were great for snuggling up on the couch. The only let down was that there wasn't much choice of TV channels. apart from that the villa was perfect! The highlight was the hot tub! After a long day at the parks it was exactly what we needed to relax! Would definitely recommend a stay in this villa!

great villa, great owners

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

its always a gamble, booking a villa where are you haven't been before, over the many years we've been going to Orlando, we've had the pleasure of staying in some really nice villas and some not so nice ones :-(. But the whole family agreed this was one of the best we stayed at, very clean, very modern and is clearly well looked after. It's been my experience over the years that villas, live and die on how good the management companies are and they clearly have a good one here, when we walked in the place is spotless and clearly was well maintained. We also had some major concerns about the whole booking process with Covid restrictions, we still didn't know 24 hours before we flew if we could actually go because we had to test negative, but the owners of the villa could not have been more accommodating and more understanding .
We've always been big fans of Emerald Isle, mainly because of the location, and I was pleasantly surprised as this is literally 200 yards away from a Emerald Isle, which makes a superb, location meaning you can get to Disney World in less than 10 mins without touching the I4, which for anyone who's been before, will know that's a bonus :-)

From now on this will be our go to Villa, as we are hoping we can now resume our annual visits to Orlando ( covid permitting) I would have no hesitation in recommending both owners and the Villa to anyone who is considering booking

Fabulous Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have been coming to Florida for over 20 years, so have stayed in many hotels and villas. Sunset Lakes is a gated community, very quiet and the villa was located near the community pool which was a bonus. Although there was only 2 of us, we had 4 lovely bedrooms to choose from and the games room was used. The villa was lovely and clean with beautiful furnishings and a spacious kitchen with everything provided. The outside area with the pool was great and we had it heated after contacting Ely which made a difference at this time of year. The hot tub was amazing to relax in after doing the parks.

We contacted the management company about the safe not closing and they came the next day. Nothing was too much trouble or Ely.

The location for Disney is great and easy access to highways.

I would highly recommend staying at this villa to family and friends.

What an amazing time we had! Thank you so much Dave and Ely for our fantastic stay. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The children loved the pool and were delighted to find an array of inflatables. The boys made good use of the games room. and the hot tub was a delight after a long, exhausting day at the parks. The beds were hotel standard, we all agreed we've never slept in such cozy beds. In summary, beautiful house, welcoming community, perfectly located, well equipped and sparkling clean.

Perfect stay for Theme Parks

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a lovely two weeks at Pourquoi Pas. Ely was always quick to reply to emails and the management team were on hand if needed. About 15 mins from Disney and 25 from Universal . Quiet location and added security of a gated community. So close to restaurants which were all amazing. Villa spacious with everything you could ask for and more . Close to Publix don’t go to Walmart ! Pool clean and hot tub lovely . Only thing I would say having been before and staying in a similar property that the games room really isn’t that air conditioned and lacked comfort . Better than no air conditioning but still felt like we were in the garage which we were.

We have just returned from staying at this gorgeous villa and wish we could go back already. The home had everything we could have possibly needed and we felt completely comfortable staying there. The home was very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable, we I didnt miss my own bed at all! We would absolutely reccomend this villa to anybody visiting Orlando, and if and when we return, this will be the home we stay at! We had a tiny problem with air con and the maintenance team were there in under an hour and sorted it straight away! You could not ask for better service.

Our 3rd visit to this lovely Villa was once again an excellent experience.

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed here last 11 years ago and chose to come back due to the excellent location for both the Disney and Universal parks. As before, the Villa is lovely inside and clean and fresh throughout. It is well furnished and comfortable. There were 6 adults, which gave us ample room. The owner, as always, was very helpful when we were booking.
We had initial trouble with the air conditioning, however, we phoned the number supplied and the problem was fixed the same day, which was extremely helpful.
I would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this lovely villa.
Thank you very much to the Owners.

This is an amazing villa - it honestly has everything you need to have a great holiday. Large, clean, a spa tub and pool - what more could you ask for? For those that are into Premier League and Champions League football, rest assured knowing you won't miss any of the action on the giant TV in the living room! Not only that, its such an ideal location being so close to Disney. To be honest it's not even far from international drive or the airport; provided you have a car you can pretty much travel anywhere within an hour. Beforehand we had great communication between ourselves and the owners; do not hesitate to book!

Everything you need for an amazing stay in Florida

Had 2 wonderful weeks in this amazing villa. Owners have provided everything you could possibly need. The hot tub provides a great opportunity to relax after long days at the parks and the villa is in a great location for Disney parks. We felt very safe being in a gated community and the information provided at the villa is very useful. Ely is very prompt with replies when entering into the booking process and willing to answer any questions about the villa. As a party of only four in this huge house there was plenty of space to relax. We are hoping to return in 2021 and wouldn’t hesitate to use this villa again. Thank you again for our stay and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay.

Perfect villa, perfect location.

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have stayed in Orlando villas before but this was by far the best one we have been in.
Booking process was straightforward and Ely is a lovely lady to deal with.
The villa itself is kitted out with everything you could need and the hot tub is an added bonus for lazy afternoons or relaxing after a park day.
All the Disney parks and amenities are within an easy 15 minute drive and Universal is a quick trip up the i-4.
The nearby 192 (Bronson highway) has plenty of restaurants and shops to suit all budgets, all only 5 minutes away.
We loved it so much we re-booked for next year before we left :)
As the title states, Perfect villa in a perfect location.
Thanks Ely & Dave for a great villa.

Stayed at this amazing villa while visiting Orlando, wow such an awesome holiday we had. We had previously stayed here seven years ago and were delighted to stay again as we had loved it so much the last time. After a long flight delayed at the airport with thunderstorms, we finally arrive at the villa, tired but excited and how thankful we were to be able to access the villa with such ease. Excellent communication from the owners meant it was hassle free. After unpacking we dived into the amazing pool and cooled off! Just what we needed after a tiring day. The villa had every amenity you could need, no need for towels etc even rain ponchos were provided for our use. An extra bonus for us was the solar pool heating, our son struggles with the cold water and was delighted to find it such a welcoming temperature. We loved the pool and the hot tub was an extra treat after all the walking! Great location for theme parks and shopping, great selections of restaurants nearby. We highly recommend this villa and hope to return in the future.

Just returned from our holiday in florida staying in the villa. The place really does have everything you could need for a great holiday.
The beds are extremely comfortable the kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need the kids loved the pool and games room and had hours of fun using both the pool and the air hockey table.
They also loved the big bath in the main bedroom onsuite 4 kids all in at once they thought this was great.
As for us adults there are ample tv channels decent wifi and of course the pool and hot tub the fridge freezer is massive with plenty room for cooling drinks and food.
All in all i can not fault the place and would highly recomend it as a base for a great florida holiday.

We stayed at this villa over xmas 2017. When we arrived it had been decorated for xmas including a tree which was a lovely touch. The space is very good for an extended family. In an ideal location - very close to all the theme parks and attractions. As its a gated community felt very safe. Facilities are excellent and the pool table was a real hit with my boys. The hot tub was out of action for our stay so can't comment on that but the pool area was very nice. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we will go back one day :)

Great Villa, Great Location

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

After browsing literally hundreds of villas on line, we settled on this one due to the location, and the prompt and friendly response from owners Ely & Dave. We were not disappointed with our choice. The location of the villa is ideal if you are homing in on Disney (who isn't!!). It really is just 10 minutes from the Disney entrance. There is a huge Walmart about 10mins away by car for all provisions, and some other local shops near by for quick replenishing of milk etc. The villa will not disappoint ~ spacious and in very good condition. It was sparkling clean on our arrival (and hopefully found to be so on our departure) . We included the hot tub in our booking which was great after a day at the parks. The swimming pool was ideal, although there is not much space around it if the whole family is there at the same time, but this did not detract from our enjoyment of this superb villa. ~ Highly recommended.

Hopefully - fingers crossed - Osceola County will not take too long to send necessary documentation.
When work is completed you can visit us again !!

Everything you could ever need and more is provided, the house itself is beautiful and very well kept and in a perfect location - close to the parks and several restaurants, but far enough out to be quiet. We loved every second of our time here and completely recommend the villa to anyone considering staying in the area, we'll certainly look into coming back in the future.

Excellent villa in a fantastic location. It really is as close to Disney as you will get and is so handy for restaurants and shops off the 192. The villa has everything you would need; it is clean, spacious and well looked after. Also, being in a gated community gives that feeling of extra security. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Regards,

Donald

Good morning Ely,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for letting us use your home.

We only got back on Tuesday after going further afield in Florida then back through New York.

The house was spotless and the hot tub a huge welcome in the evenings when we got back from the parks or shopping!!

We did have an unexpected guest one afternoon whilst sitting outside..... a black racer in the pool enclosure with us, you've never seen 3 people move so quickly :-D

Anyway Ely, thanks again, I'll definitely keep your details handy as I'm always in the Orlando area, and love it at Sunset Lakes.


Best regards
Matt

Beautiful villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This is a superb villa in a fantastic location, less than 10 mins drive to Disney World. The house has everything you could possibly want - all mod cons, plenty of space indoors, and a superb private pool area. It is beautifully maintained also, so rest assured that when you arrive it will look exactly as it does in the pictures. In fact, the pictures don't quite do it justice, as we couldn't believe how big the house actually is! The villa is located on a picturesque and peaceful gated community, with secure entry so you will feel very safe. The house overlooks a lake, and the view at sunrise is absolutely stunning. A few minutes drive up the road you will find Formosa Gardens, a selection of shops and decent restaurants, that are very handy. A few minutes further and you're on the 192, with all the diners, attractions and gift shops, and then before you know it you're on World Drive heading towards Disney. This is as perfect a location for a villa as you could possibly want. Close to everything, yet also a quiet and secluded oasis from all the theme park madness! The only downside to this villa would be the amount of outdoor space around the pool. As a party of four adults, there were only three sun loungers, and not enough room for us all to be out in the sun at the same time. A lot of the space is taken up by the hot tub which isn't really needed in the Floridian heat. That being said, it didn't in any way detract from our stay. We really enjoyed the villa and would recommend it to anyone.

We thought we had died and gone to heaven when we walked
through the front door what a spectacular villa. We chilled by the
pool and watched the terrapins in the lake,
Enjoyed the villa pool and Jacuzzi as well as the community pool
and wandering storks !!
Beautiful!
Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks.
