" We had the most wonderful time! And the best part of the whole trip was the house! We booked most of our days at the parks and felt like we should have had more time just to stay at the house and enjoy it more! Everything was perfect.

All the girls felt like princesses where their dreams came true."

" If there is such a thing as a 5 star house, this is it! 5 star accommodation in a 5 star location!"

Dawn and Alan Murray
Hello! We are Dawn and Alan Murray from West Sussex in the UK and have 2 children - now 19 and 13.

We had been holidaying in Florida for many years (even before the children came along, we just love it!), and after renting a villa for the first time, we knew a hotel would no longer do, so in 2003 we set about searching for our perfect villa. When we first stepped inside Villa Sunrise Dream and saw those lake views and realised how close we were to the parks, we were hooked - nothing else would do, and the following month our dreams became a reality, when we completed and the villa became ours. Since then we have been visiting at least twice a year, and nothing beats that feeling of arriving at Sunset Lakes each time.
As the time went by I loved sharing our home with guests, hearing their reactions and being part of making their holiday one in a lifetime, so much so that in 2011 we bought our second villa on Sunset Lakes, Villa Sunset Dream and completely renovated top to bottom, using all we had learned from Sunrise Dream over the years to make Sunset Dream equally as stunning and welcoming. I now have have the perfect excuse for shopping to my hearts content to ensure the villas are in tip top condition all the time - what could be better!!
Our wonderful family owned Management Company look after the villa and our guests 24/7 in our absence, so you will always be in safe hands when you are there.
We welcome lots of questions about Florida and the villas, so please feel free to get in touch and ask away.



Welcome to Villa Sunrise Dream...........

We looked at many, many Florida homes to find our perfect one, then we walked through the door of Villa Sunrise Dream 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! Since then we have continually upgraded and enhanced our wonderful home to make it even more special for you, our guests.

Really enjoyed our stay in Sunrise Dream Villa. Great villa, incredibly clean, well resourced, all the luxuries away from home. Really appreciated the privacy and its location is ideal. Great supermarket and amenities within a 3 minute drive. Highly recommend this home and location. This is our third vacation in Orlando using holiday villas and it is the best villa by far.

The Palmer Family


"Hi Dawn,

Thank you for your email. We had a really good time and the weather was lovely and warm.

The villa was superb as usual, lovely and clean and we appreciated the changes you have made, new fridge freezer, with loads of room, new microwave, seating units are really nice and comfy and we liked the new remote control fan in the lounge.

It was lovely to wake up to the views across the lake and equally satifying to sit out in the evening and watch the sun go down. Thanks again for making our holiday special".

Mr and Mrs Orritt,


"Everything was perfect.

We will definitely stay again and have recommended it to friends.

We enjoyed staying in your villa, love the location and the booking process was excellent. Many thanks for being flexible to accomodate our travel dates"

The Galley Family (repeat guests)


"Hi Dawn,

We are still having a good time, despite the weather.

This house is just fabulous!!!! We are all pleased for all the added amenities, which makes it feel just like home. The pictures on your web site are exactly what this house looks like....beautiful. Today we are relaxing and some have gone shopping.

Thanks for checking on us".

The Forte Family


"The villa was fantastic and really complimented our holiday, the facilities were immaculate and pristine upon arrival. The house is large and spacious enough to satisfy our party, the children had a wonderful time in the games room & swimming pool and the adults enjoyed the sunset over the lake whilst enjoying cool drinks!

Location wise the house is very convenient and within a comfortable drive of all the parks, the shortcut to Disney was used on a regular basis. A short drive away along the 192 is a large selection of restaurants and shops , so deciding what to eat can be a problem!

Many thanks to Dawn who was very helpful throughout the whole process, we would definitely use the villa again if we were to return and would happily recommend the villa to our friends."

The Livingston Family


Hi Dawn,

"Congratulations for your beautiful home. In addition, we were amazed with the good taste which was decorated, and also because it has everything you might need. We have spent a great holiday.

We are very grateful that we have been allowed to stay at the home"

The Boschetti Family


Dear Dawn and Alan

"Your place was awesome......the kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub........it was really close to all the parks which was so convenient.......thank you for everything it was a great vacation.....didnt want to leave...:)"

The Hill & Robinson Families


Hi Dawn,

"Your villa suited our needs perfectly. We totally overindulged in the hot tub which is now on our mandatory list if and when we return. We had no issues or problems and nothing else that we could have wanted to be honest. We took advantage of the BBQ and enjoyed the larger 8 seated table outside so we could all dine together. WI-FI internally was great. Location was ideal for parks, and the short cut was great. I was quite surprised at the view of the lake we had from the villa as I had not remembered this from your site".

The Steventon Family


Dear Dawn and Alan

"Just a quick message to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay at Sunrise Dream. Accommodation and facilities were great for our family, we were particularly pleased to have heat available, as the overnight frosts were sufficiently keen to cover the rooftops with white on several mornings. We enjoyed the warm days, use of pool, and our grandchildren loved visiting the Disney Parks and Discovery Cove.

Sean very quickly sorted out our only problem , associated with the flushing mechanism of the toilet - otherwise no problems.

The Xmas decorations were particularly appreciated. Many thanks for the hire of your villa"

The Fox Family


Hi Dawn and Alan

"Just wanted to say the house was perfect for us - we had a great time in Orlando.

The guide you provided was very helpful and the directions to Disney saved a lot of time"

The Jeffs Family


Hi Dawn

"We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday and we really enjoyed staying in Villa Sunrise Dream. The house was perfect and the location was great.

The villa was clean and appliances such as the oven and BBQ were immaculate. Everything worked fine".

The Pollack Family


Thank you for taking the time to read about Villa Sunrise Dream, and we hope to welcome you to our home soon. Sincerely, Dawn and Alan Murray

A huge thank you for our fab stay your villa is by far the best we have stayed in and we will without doubt be back again soon.
What a fabulous place to stay!
The villa has a stunning outlook onto the lake and is so well equipped with everything you could need and more! The location is great with plenty of facilities close by and a really short drive to Disney.
Excellent communication from Dawn & Alan for booking, directions and a welcome home follow up too.
We have stayed in many different villas in Orlando over the years but Sunrise Dream is by far the best. We would highly recommend a stay here to everyone and will most definitely be returning very soon soon!
Thank you Dawn and Alan for everything!

One of the closest to Disney

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Our stay @ Sunset Dream was so pleasant we could have stayed longer ... Much longer ! You have such a beautiful Kissimmee home and in such a stunning and handy location.

The villa was exceptionally clean and well organised with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We were spoilt with choices of bedrooms .. bathrooms and TVs ! And your villa certainly has the best lake view in SunSet ! And next time need to find some smaller children to bring with us to make use of the princess costumes ! What a cute touch ! Our teenage boys loved the games room and all the facilities within!

The pool and spa were well maintained and serviced during our stay and the selection of pool toys and towels certainly were welcome and saved the luggage space !

We did have to contact the management team after AC failed after a hot day but a quick email and visit .. an engineer was out and fixed it without any hassle at all ... Very responsive and helpful even when we set the house alarm off !

Your arrival information and information folder at the villa were very useful and the shortcut around Disney was very useful ! The local area has had huge investment and an exciting future seems to be ahead. So conveniently located for all facilities along the 192 and out retail visits to Target and Walmart(s) !!!

We did not find any appliance missing and valued the laundry and dishwasher facilities and the welcome pack especially the milk and snacks were a good send when we arrived and felt a little tired to go and shop !

We have visited Kissimmee on many occasions and your villa rates at the top of our stays .. we would most certainly stay again and recommend it to anyone who may enquire ! One of the closest villas to Disney ... In a very quiet area with such a lovely view .

And thank you Dawn for making the booking process so simple and easy ... You were super helpful and responsive from the outset. It gave us confidence in our booking and took any accomodation stress away.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at one of the Sunset lake Villas for two weeks in early April. The villa itself was perfect. The location was superb and very close to all of the Disney parks. We arrived late and were grateful for the welcome pack which enabled us to leave a visit to ‘Publix’ until the morning. The Hot tub and pool were fabulous. We have stayed in Orlando many times over the years and the setting of sunset villa was the best. In all the years of visiting. We had never visited ‘Celebration’ (only a short drive), it is well worth a visit and I recomend the Spanish restaurant highly.
Thank you Dawn for the super customer service from your team.

We will be back!

Just returned from Florida and had a fabulous time at Dawn Murray’s Villa . The location is central and perfectly situated very near to Disney and Universal Studios, and nearby supermarkets. The villa itself, a perfect combination of comfort and a home from home with lovely warm pool and inviting hot tub to relax in . We had a fabulous time and remember watching the beautiful sunsets over the lake. Thank you so much.

Extended our stay!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Our family absolutely loved our stay at the villa, that much that we extended our stay whilst here, we did not want to leave.

Dawn was available to speak to and very helpful with any questions that we had.

The management company were easy to get hold of when there was an issue with the pool heating and sorted it within a couple of hours.

Watching the sunset over the lake was our favourite time of day after a busy day in the theme parks.

We would love to return to the villa again in the future, it was so close to Disney and all local amenities.

Fabulous holiday in Beautiful Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a fabulous holiday in your beautiful villa. You have thought of absolutely everything, down to the milk and snacks available on arrival which was so welcome, we loved our stay there, it was so comfortable and relaxing. Your villa was a huge part of our enjoyment on a very special family holiday.
Villa Sunrise Dream is a fabulous villa. It is immaculate, so very well equipped (the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need) and it was lovely coming back after a busy day at the parks to relax in the hot tub and swimming pool. The location was perfect for us. Communication was excellent. During our stay we were very impressed by the quick response from the Management Team on a couple of small issues we had that were dealt with right away. We would highly recommend this villa.

Can not recommend highly enough!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have just returned home from a 2 week stay in Sunrise Dream and I could not recommend it highly enough!

From when we first enquired through to booking, through to arriving and staying at the villa, Dawn made the whole process extremely easy and seamless. She explained everything throughly, offered helpful advice and answered any questions I had really quickly.

The villa was immaculate, every little thing you could possibly need is thought of. The gated community where it is situated is lovely and really quiet, the view from the Villa on to the lake is amazing, especially the sunsets.

We are a family of 5 and the highlight for my 3 boys was definitely the pool which they went in every morning before we went to the parks. Having a lovely well equipped kitchen to make our meals in when we wanted made a real difference too and meant we were able to save some dollars by not having to eat out every evening.

A massive range of Shops/bars/restaurants are right on the doorstep, literally a 5 minute drive, and from leaving the villa to being parked inside the magic kingdom car park took us 15 mins tops, less most days.

I would not hesitate to book with Dawn again, we had a fantastic holiday and we absolutely loved our stay at Sunrise Dream.

Everything we wished for and more

We absolutely loved the holiday and your fabulous villa! Kay (partner) was very upset to have to leave on Saturday morning and was asking me to extend the stay! The villa was perfect for us 6, everything we wished for and more. The view over the lake especially at Sunset was just amazing. Kids loved like really loved the pool and hot tub. Pool was great size as normally photos can be deceiving but yours was great. We all enjoyed the games room, air hockey was better than you find in some amusements here in UK.

We will certainly recommend your villa to friends & work colleagues if they are visiting Orlando.

We can't thank you enough and hopefully we get to visit again as location was perfect.

Good Morning

I wanted to send our thanks.

We had the best stay at your beautiful Villa Sunrise Dream on the wonderful Sunset Lakes. It has surpassed our previous villa stays. You have ensured everything is covered down to pool towels, scissors and we even saw hair straighteners in the cupboard!! It was such a lovely bit of luxury to return to after the hectic park days. The pool was amazing, we enjoyed lots of sunsets looking over the lake from it! The beds were incredible!!! We can tell you put your heart and soul into this Villa and it truly shows. We are already missing it!

The next time we return to Florida this Villa will be the first I check availability for.

Thank you.

Safe and Secure gated community

Hi Dawn,
I must apologise too as I did not give you any feedback following our return to the UK. All I can say was the villa was fantastic. Everything was as described and having the swimming pool at our back door made our youngest's holiday. She loved being able to dip in as soon as we returned home from days out. We felt safe and secure in the gated community.
We have been telling everyone what a fabulous time we had and that your villa was outstanding and the location just could not have been better. Thank you for everything and we will certainly be in touch when we do another villa holiday to Florida.

Communication Excellent

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We all loved the house. I would say of the 12 plus villas we have rented it was the best!
Extremely well equipped - it had everything we needed and more. We like the position of Sunset Lakes and have stayed there before. Pool heating was great and ensured that our grandchild could enjoy the pool for as long as he wanted.

My family has just returned from a fabulous two week stay at Villa Sunrise Dream. This property was everything we hoped for and more.

Very spacious - the 2 master suites are great if two families are staying together. Bathrooms are all very well appointed and immaculate.

The kitchen was lovely and incredibly well supplied with everything you could need.

A very professionally presented villa which I would thoroughly recommend. Communication with the friendly owners was excellent.”

Thanks again for the very good communication in the run up to our renting your villa. We had a great holiday and the family all loved the villa. I just need to recover from 4 weeks away now!

Hi Dawn

Sorry for the slow response. I think we’ve just about got over the jetlag now.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying in your lovely home. Everything you could need and more. We spent most of our time, when we were in, round the pool area even in the evenings when it was dark. Very convenient for the Disney theme parks and close to some lovely restaurants. We usually stay further east off the 192, around the Medieval Times area, so this gave us the opportunity to try new places to eat.

The weather was very kind to us, apart from getting drenched the last night. That’s Florida for you.

Many thanks

The house was beautiful and we enjoyed everything about our stay there. The property owners even left a Christmas tree and decorations that we were able to put up for our children for Christmas Day while we were there. The kids' closets were filled with princess dresses, Star Wars costumes and other awesome dress-up clothes and Disney stuffed animals. We were close to Disney and anything else we needed. They had strollers we could take to Disney, games, books -- they had basically thought of everything! We would love to return to this property in the future!

This home is gorgeous!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We come to Florida each summer to visit family. This home is gorgeous. We were pleased with all the rooms. The pool was always warm. The hot tub was super hot when we arrived but after leaving the cover off for a few hours, it cooled down. They boys were surprised to find fishing poles and spent many hours catching fish in the pond. The pool was cleaned on Friday (as stated in the agreement). They discovered that a pipe was broken but communicated to us when it would be fixed and how soon after that we could go into the pool. It was fixed promptly---we actually didn't even know they were out there fixing it. This subdivision is close enough to Target, Walmart and many restaurants (with back ways to get there to avoid busy intersections) but also, DoorDash had no problem finding us when we ordered out. All in all, a great stay. We enjoyed it very much.

Perfect for us

The house was perfect for our two families to stay together. We had a group of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids, and the double king suite was perfect for our families. The home was clean, welcoming, and in a great neighborhood. The only negative thing we could say had nothing to do with the home itself. We were able to hear the neighbors partying loudly during our kids bedtime hours, but switched them to different bedrooms in the front of the home and were able to get them to sleep. We loved the pool, and it was perfect for our family and kids. The seating areas by the pool were perfect, the large table we used for meals so they didn't drag water inside the home while swimming, and the lounging chairs were amazing for us to hang out on while they swam. We would for sure stay here again when traveling with another family.

It was so spacious and airy 2 huge master suites with huge en-suites the queen room and 2 twin rooms were very spacious beautiful bathrooms and a fantastic kitchen with everything you could possibly need . Extra large washing machine and drier .The very large pool where you could swim properly not just dipping was so warm overlooking the lake (plenty of catch and release fishing) the villa is maybe a 5 minute drive to many many restaurants and shops and Wal-Mart 10 minutes away so central for everything 10 minutes to Disney nobody could be disappointed with this beautiful villa if you like birds and wildlife this is the place.

Another great stay

Another fantastic stay at one of Dawn's villas! This year at Sunrise Dream.

The villa has spotless upon arrival and we loved the newly fitted kitchens and bathrooms.

Outside the pool area was brilliant, we spent almost every minute at the villa here. The pool is a fantastic size for being able to actually swim, not just splash around!
We didn't use the games room this time but it looked like a great room for families to use on rainy days.

Every bedroom was very clean and comfortable (two with HUGE en-suites) and we all loved the massive beds!

This is our second stay in one of Dawn's villas and we all agreed this time that you really can't get closer to Disney unless you're in a hotel.
The location of Sunset Lakes is superb, literally 10 minutes to Animal Kingdom down the US-192 and only another 10mins to Magic Kingdom etc. The main international airport is only 30 minutes away too (without traffic).

When choosing a villa in Orlando we will always choose Villa Sunrise Dream or Villa Sunset Dream if they are available.

Thank you Dawn for another brilliant stay.

Beautiful decor all around the home, both huge bathrooms have been completely refurbished and they are stunning and there is a hot tub outside close to the 30 ft swimming pool. Villa owners could not be more helpful and friendly (they even left a bottle of prosecco in the fridge on our arrival to celebrate our twin girls 21st birthday the day before ??). Villa is very close to the 192 so perfectly situated for parks like Animal Kingdom and lots of fantastic restaurants. Faultless ??????????

Beautiful villa that lived up to the "Dream" in its name

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

"Hi Dawn, Our booking period was nearly two years which reflected our wish to secure a family holiday in the beautiful villa Sunrise Dream. Our keen interest was fuelled by what turned out to be a very accurate, informative and attractive web advertisement together with several very caring but professional communications with Dawn, the owner in the UK. After this long period, and a transatlantic flight we were delighted that the experience of using the villa continued this trend. An initial 'WOW' impression continued to be followed by two weeks of realising the full potential of this beautiful property which fully lived up to the 'Dream' in its name. The villa was well equipped in every aspect. A folder provided the initial information for a quick start to the holiday, of particular note being times and directions to supermarkets, restaurants, the Parks and general housekeeping tips for the villa. The local knowledge of travel short cuts was of particular help in avoiding traffi"

Lakeside Location Delightful

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The house was very presentable and clean upon arrival. All appliances appeared to be in working order.

Some our party experienced an issue with the alarm upon arriving back at the villa one day. The alarm company called promptly and advised that the management company would attend the following day to correct. Everything appeared well upon our return from the parks the next day, so it was presumably corrected without issue.

There were more than enough provisions within the house. The children enjoyed the games room but soon favoured the pool as the only place they wanted to be after a day out. The adults were grateful for the dishwasher and laundry facilities (there are some things one simply doesn’t have a holiday from!).

From start to finish, Dawn was terrific to deal with. No question was too small (and I did have the habit of asking random questions!). Dawn responded to all emails promptly, and was always friendly and efficient. The villa information provided was extremely helpful beforehand and during the stay. Being told about the back roads via Sherberth Road proved indispensable and shaved a lot of time off our travelling (we even used it to cut the corner off US192/I4 when travelling up to Universal Studios). The lakeside location was delightful. We all enjoyed spotting the wildlife, which, during our stay, included a pair of Sandhill cranes, black vultures, turtles, plenty of little green anoles and a couple of sightings of swallow-tailed kites (thankfully, no spiders!). Thank you very much for letting us stay at your home. We very much hope to stay again in the future.

We would recommend Sunrise Dream

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed at Sunrise Dreams in September 2017 with Hurricane Irma appearing right in the middle. We did not stray from the villa for 3 whole days due to the hurricane and curfews so we really had to like our enforced lockdown.
And we did!
A very spacious, comfortable and attractive home with gorgeous bedrooms, every mod con and a delightful pool. There is a Games Room, and a play station, movies and CDs. It was clean and tidy, and the maintenance men Gordon and Matt live just down the road so were able to help us out when the aircon caused a problem and even answered a call at 11.30 at night with no qualms. Free long distance/international calls was a huge plus for us.
The owner, Dawn, in the U.K., communicated with us regularly during the hurricane, anxious to know we were alright. Our flight home was cancelled three times and she let us stay 3 extra nights until we could get home.
The area is gated and very quiet. Most of the houses surround an attractive lake with some interesting birds to see, such as cranes and herons.
The nearest shopping and restaurants are only about a mile away on easy back roads. It is really close to Disney and only half an hour from Universal. Oh and check out the new friendly and enjoyable winery near Formosa Gardens too.
We would definitely recommend Sunrise Dream.

Can we just thank you again for allowing us to share your beautiful holiday villa.....

When we first arrived and opened up, there was an all round WOW !!! The villa fits with the 'Magic' of the holiday... it too is a Dream come true. It has provided everything we could possibly have needed in our first week.

We have been delighted as to the villas's proximity to amenities like Publix; the restaurants of Irlo Bronson; and thanks to your short cut tips the speed of entry and exit to the parks.

The pool and tub have been in use early every morning with my grandchildren in their element.

Anyway back to the activities, as I said this was just a small thank you for a smashing holiday so far, and looking forward to the rest.

We spent a wonderful time in your beautiful villa and the whole family loved it so much.

We're not yet home though... after leaving your villa, we moved to the gulfcoast and we spend this week in a house in Cape Coral (also nice but not as cosy as yours... And it has no PlayStation, which is important for my son)

We really appreciated your helpful information. By mail beforehand and also the written ones in your villa.

A real home from home

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Sunrise Dream. It was a real Home from Home for both families with plenty of room for us to relax. The kids loved the pool & playroom and if the kids are happy the parents are too!

The Villa had absolutely everything that we needed for a truly wonderful break and is in a lovely tranquil location, I wouldn't hesitate recommending to family and friends.

We had 2 very minor issues (over chlorinated jacuzzi and early start to the pool heating) but both were sorted out immediately by the management company.

The booking process was quick, easy and with no problems.

We will definitely visit again and recommend to friends.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa.

The Best

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Entering the villa was easy with all the code information supplied.The villa was very clean ,tidy and comfortable.All equipment needed was there with plenty of kitchen and cooking equipment.We have been to at least six villas over the years and this was definitely the best,everything we could ask for was there and more.
On the first use of the hot tub we found the chemical fumes very strong so we contacted the management company to check it out.We met Shaun and Norma and had a good chat with them and they soon sorted out the problem.They were a very friendly an professional couple and did a good job.

If we were to return to Florida we would most definately use your villa again and recommend your villa to friends and family as everything was perfect.The booking process was easy and everything from start to finish ran smoothly.

Thanking you very much

Just a quick word to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home, we all had a fantastic time, and the view from the hot tub is fantastic, and I loved to have a swim in the morning and look at the wild life and the hot air balloons flying over early mornings and it is so close to all the Disney parks... Brilliant

One of the best!

Absolutely loved the villa, it has to be one of the best ones we have stayed in out there - we recommended it to my brother before we even went and I believe he has booked for September.

The only feedback I would have is that the blinds in the master bedroom could do with being repaired or replaced so that no light comes in.

That would be the only criticism though and that was thinking really hard to come up with something! We really loved the villa and the area it was in. I reckon Charlotte and I are convinced when we go back to Florida in a couple of years that we'll be coming back to Sunrise Dream!

Thanks for your note - yes, we had an amazing holiday thank you! Your villa was very lovely and on the very few days we stayed home, we loved using the pool and hot tub. I think we need another holiday to recover though as we did 12 theme parks in 15 days, and the weather was super hot.

The welcome book was amazing and your short cut suggestion saved us hours in the car, so thank you for that. We loved our theme park holiday and plan to return when Max has grown a few inches so he can go on some of the bigger thrill rides...we did manage to squeeze him in on the Tower of Terror and he loved it!

Glorious Stay

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Needless to say, I sure wish we were back at your villa:). On behalf of our party of eight, we would like to say thank you very much for a glorious stay in Kissimmee. This was our first time staying in a vacation home and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. The kids loved everything about Florida but the favourite part of our vacation for the adults was simply relaxing in your beautiful backyard by the pool. We love a beautiful view and sunset lake certainly did not disappoint. It was gorgeous, especially during sunset!!

We did contact your management company on our second day. The pool was very hot, too uncomfortable for swimming and the hot tub was not heating up. Management needed to work on the temperature control panel and it was fixed by the late afternoon.
All appliances were perfect and made our stay feel just like home. The booking process was simple and all of the added information that you gave was wonderful. We would definitely stay at your home again and we would recommend it to others.

Owner's response: Thank you for the wonderful review and we are delighted you enjoyed first stay in a vacation home - hopefully it won't be the last and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Thank you!

We cannot speak highly enough of your villa, it's location, the amenities and the stunning sunset view!! This was our fourth time to have stayed in a villa in the Kissimmee area and your villa was voted the best by a country mile by all the family. Should we retun again to Orlando we will definitly wish to stay at Sunrise Dream. .

We found the villa spotlessly
clean, and the condition of everything very good
and in working order.

The booking process was simple and straightforward and we really
loved the lake, it made the Villa even more special.

Everything was perfect, you have a lovely villa, the organisation was flawless and i've already recommended it to a couple of friends. I'm sure we'll be in touch again ourselves in the future also... it's hard to stay away from Florida :)
Thank you once again

Hi Dawn

We had a great time, thank you for renting us your villa! The pool and lake view were amazing, we could have spent every day there. The villa is beautiful and immaculate. Sunset Lakes is a great community and we'd definitely consider renting with you again when we return to Florida.
