Sharon Baillie
Hello! We are Sharon and Bruce Baillie from Coleraine in beautiful Northern Ireland. We have two children, well teenagers now, aged 18 and 21 and have spent many years enjoying fabulous holidays in Orlando with them since they were babies. We own and operate a McDonalds franchise in Northern Ireland and love to travel around the USA on road trips in an RV. Our most recent was Route 66…

We bought Sunset Villa, our 1st 6 - bed villa, on Sunset Lakes in 2001 and set about making it a home away from home. As fashions changed, we’ve renovated and updated it along the way, and it’s now a beautiful, bright modern villa. (Out with the floral sofas and fake flower arrangements…)

Following on from the success of our 1st villa, we bought Villa Horizon, our 5 - bed villa, in 2012 and renovated to the same standard as Sunset Villa. Lake View Villa, another 6 – bed villa, is our most recent purchase which was bought and fully renovated in 2017. (The 2 x 6 – bed villas are next door to each other which is great for the bigger families and groups)

All 3 of our villas are located on Sunset Lakes and all have a fabulous Lake View with a south facing pool - Making the most of Florida sunshine! (We do have shade on our decks too if you prefer)

We are so proud of our villas and Sharon handles all the reservations herself and is happy to help you plan, what I’m sure will be a holiday of a lifetime for you and your family. We have a wealth of local knowledge and very experienced in the villas rental industry so you are in good hands when you reserve one of our villas.

Reserving one of our villas is very easy and if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask at any time. Whichever villa you choose, we hope you have a great holiday in Orlando and make wonderful memories…

Excellent area an a fab villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Sharon couldn’t have been more helpful especially when we had to rearrange our stay and swap villas. Excellent communication made everything easy and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this villa to our friends and family.

The villa is well appointed and was spotless when we arrived. The management company were helpful when we had a small issue which is always reassuring.
The villa is in an excellent spot with very little traffic passing as it’s at the end of a road but with easy access in and out of the residents gate it was quick to exit the estate. The villa truly is 5 minutes from the 192 and many restaurants and shops and 10 minutes to the gates of Animal Kingdom.
With the lake behind the villa you feel quite private too.

I would say this villa would suite one large family rather than two because I don’t know how you fairly decide who got the gorgeous master suite with its own seating area and balcony. I only wish we weren’t too busy at the parks to make more of it.

We paid to have the pool heated and with the cover on it stayed a decent temperature to be able to use at night too.

Thank you for sharing your villa and helping to make our stay a memorable one.

Exceptional villa

We had the best holiday in the best villa in Orlando.
It is wonderfully equipped and clean and comfort. Not to mention the location and proximity to Disney world. Sharon is a wonderful owner and so easy to contact. We have stayed in her villa before. And will most definitely stay again!!

Guest name: Rebecca

Owner's response: Thank you, Rebecca for your lovely comments again. Love to have you and your family back another time. Take care, Sharon

Lovely stay at Sunset Lakes!!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sunset Lakes. Sharon was an amazing host and we cannot wait to visit again. The 6 bedroom villa was super comfortable and fully equipped with all you need to make your stay super comfortable. We had amazing Smart TV options which included Disney+ access, Netflix access and all major satelite channels for those nights in. WiFi was super reliable and fast throughout the Villa. Our Pool was big with plenty of surrounding space and with plenty of inflatables to keep our 7 year old son super happy! He loved evening pool time and we spent pretty much every night back in the pool before bedtime. All rooms were well maintained. We didn't sleep in all rooms as there was only 3 of us staying there but every bedroom looked comfortable and well maintained with really nice decor. Sunset lakes itself is in a great location. We could drive back road to Animal Kingdom in less than 10 minutes without needing the busy 1-4 and very close to the large Walmart and local restaurants. We would highly recommend staying at Sharon's villa. We will 100% be back. Our only challenge is finding availability again! If you see availability, snap it up as soon as you can before its gone! :-)

Wonderful stay

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a fantastic time in this villa. A beautiful luxury house where everything you need is there. The view of the lake is a bonus. And the remote control for the gate is very convenient. Within 15 minutes we were at Disney.

The contacts with Sharon were very good. She is easy to communicate with.

We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this villa to others.

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We booked this house for a family holiday, we were absolutely thrilled when we arrived to find everything so clean & comfortable. Comfortable spacious bedrooms, & plenty of towels provided for bathrooms & pool. Kitchen is full of everything needed for cooking & catering.
Such a lovely pool area to relax at the end of a busy day.
We will definitely return & would definitely recommend
Thank you for an amazing holiday

Perfect house, will come again!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

My family & I absolutely loved it here. Where to begin! Safe, gated community on a dead end cul-de-sac. Clean, beautiful, stocked home. Plenty of dishes, towels, linens. Pay for the heat in the pool, it's worth it. We wish we had been told there was no grill but we rented one from a company that was advertised in the home for 65/week. There needs to be pictures of the awesome game room that includes a pool table & air hockey! There were ducks & cranes that came to the house daily that my kids loved.

Guest name: Leslie
Date of visit: March 2022

Owner's response: Hi Leslie, I am incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us a 5-Star review! Unfortunately, due to the condition the BBQ was being left in, we had no option to remove it. Renting one is an affordable alternative and guarantees a clean BBQ and a full tank of gas. I will share this review with our USA based team to let them know to keep up the amazing work!

Outstanding Villa; Truly Exceptional

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

What a lovely, lovely villa. Perfect location, South facing with beautiful lake views. Right from the first enquiry Sharon gave clear instructions, great directions and briefings before our visit.

Then the villa! Beautifully presented and it just felt like a proper home from home. Just loved the fact that all the consumables and cleaning equipment were provided. Every time I thought I needed something, it was there. “Sharp knife” Yes “Soup ladle” yes “Nice non stick pans” yes “Lovely serving bowls, crockery and cutlery (silverware)” yes. “High quality linens” yes. “Good Wi-Fi” yes. We rent villas twice a year in Florida and I’ve got used to being a bit disappointed with the standards. This is a first class villa, with a first class host.

Guest name: Hilary Shields
Date of visit: February and March 2022

Owner's response: Hi Hilary, thank you so much for taking the time to write such lovely comments. The villas are a labour of love and it's so nice to hear we are exceeding expectations! You were a pleasure to deal with and thank you for taking care of our villa during your stay. Hopefully, you will stay in one of our lovely villas on Sunset Lakes again in the future. Best wishes and many thanks again. Sharon

We are just back from a fantastic 2 week holiday in this beautiful villa, it was like home from home with everything you needed.

Villa spotlessly clean and in a good location for the theme parks and plenty of restaurants nearby.

We had an excellent week at this superb property. The home has every amenity to ensure that it is home from home. The views over the lake in the morning and early evening are not to be missed
We wanted for nothing during our stay and would highly recommend this property to those wishing to be close to the attractions yet private when that is required

Guest name: Frank Wilson
Date of visit: 22/0220 to 29/02/20

Owner's response: Thank you Frank for your lovely comments. I hope we will welcome you back another time to one of our villas. Best wishes, Sharon

Fantastic two week vacation

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a wonderful two weeks in this great house. So much space and a fab pool area. Location is absolutely ideal for Disney. There are any amount of restaurants within a few minutes of the villa as well as Target, publix etc.
Also easy access to Universal.

What stood out was the aspect over looking the lake. It was so tranquil to sit out in the evening or morning while the kids splashed about in the pool.
The covered area provides great shelter from the heat of the sun.
The decking area is very big. Ideal al fresco dining.
Sunset lakes is a quiet residential area in an ideal location.
This villa is homely and comfortable and we hope to come back again.
Sharon has been a pleasure to deal with. Everything was seamless. No issues or hassle.
Our family of 6 had a wonderful two weeks.

We'd love to have you stay again in one of our 3 villas on Sunset Lakes, but get some dates In quickly as we are very busy in all 3 villas in 2020 & 2021. Thanks again and chat soon.

Highly Impressed

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have been renting villas in Florida for the past 15 years or so and can honestly say, your home was the best we have stayed in. The whole of the house was immaculately clean, extremely well maintained and your care and attention to detail was second to none. As well as all this, the small things like coffee filters, tea bags, salt and pepper, washing tabs etc being there was a really thoughtful touch. It was a real pleasure to stay in your home and we will definitely be return visitors subject to your availability.

Amazing Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Myself with a family of 7 stayed in this beautiful villa for three weeks, it has everything you need while away on your jollies, including a fabulous view of the lake, where you can take beautiful piccies of the sunrise/sunset.
The bedrooms are beautiful and clean, the main bedroom on the first floor has it's own balcony (would be good to have chair and table to use to see the sunrise), all rooms are spacious and comfortable.
It's a short car ride away from all amenities, some great restaurants near by and a shirt car ride from international drive.
Sharon the owner has been a delight to organise everything with, keep up the good work and hope to visit in the future. Helen and family

Worst Guest Possible

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

I say this not because I cause problems but because I used to run one of the most popular and highly rated villas in Orlando for 10 years. As such I expect very high standards from anywhere I stay. I see all the things that ordinary guests never see in a short stay of a week or two.

Having said that, I am happy to say that when I return then one of Sharon’s villas will be my first port of call. As an ex-owner, I can clearly see the attention to detail that has gone into this home, without trying to cut corners. Small problems always happen when you run a villa and it’s here again that you are well looked after. The management company and maintenance staff are both quick to reply and helpful in sorting out any issues.

The bottom line is you will be staying in an excellent villa and will be well looked after. This means that you can actually enjoy your time here as you should.

Guest name: Dave
Date of visit: 10th - 31st Aug 2019

Owner's response: Hi Dave, you where a great guest and so very helpful. You took such good care of our villa during your stay it was hard to believe anyone had been there when house keeping arrived after you left! Lovely to meet you and I do hope you'll stay in one of our villas again sometime. (Your high standards will keep me on my toes :-) Thanks again, Sharon

Fantastic and beyond expectations

A home from home this luxury villa was not only beautifully presented but also felt homely and relaxing.

Great villa

A lovely villa in a great location. Only issue is that the spa is not a fully working spa just a “waiting” pool.

Guest name: Karon and Nick T
Date of visit: 13 to 27 April 2019

Owner's response: Hi Karen, thank you for taking the time to write a review of our villa. The spa often gets confused as a hot tub. It is heated to the same temperature as the pool, when the pool heat is on, but it doesn't get hot like a jacuzzi. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes, Sharon

2nd visit did not disappoint

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This is our second trip as a large extended family to this Villa after thoroughly enjoying our first way back in 2007.

The villa has been beautifully redecorated since our last visit and is a great base for a large party with lots of shops and restaurants close by. The lake view is amazing as are all the different birds that you spot on a daily basis. The owners are a dream to deal with and we will definitely be back.

Sunset Lakes is a little gem and a great spot to get away from all the hustle and bustle but still be close to everything. Look forward to staying again in 2021! Thanks again for taking the time to right such a lovely review. Warm regards, Sharon

Home away from home!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hi Sharon,
This was our second visit to your villa and we loved it just as much as the last time!We felt we were truly in our own home!
Love the upgrades and the subtle changes that you have done!
The location is so quiet and so so close to the parks!And shopping and eating!
We Ubered to the Epcot a couple of times and it cost just 22 bucks for a return journey!Same as the Parking Fee!Hassle free Food & Wine Tasting!!
We hope to return one day soon!

We were well aware of the location and quality of the Sunset Lakes Community. We were also very impressed with the details and facilities of Sharon’s Villa. It suited our family (12) requirements perfectly !
However, upon arrival, we were more than pleasantly surprised with the “physical” quality of the property and its facilities. We were very comfortable and felt quite ar home for the whole two weeks ! A wonderful time !
We only had one very minor issue, which was dealt with within a couple of hours of contacting the Management Company, who were also very pleasant and amenable.
We would certainly throughly recommend Sharon’s Villa to any family planning their Orlando Vacation.

Best Vacation

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

I wanted to comment on our most recent vacation with my family to Orlando. It was perfect. The ease in making the reservation with Mrs. Baillie who walked us through each step along the way. She was available to answer any of our questions immediately. Now the Home. "Oh My" It was Beautiful. The home had every amenity you could think of. Well kept and maintained property with a Pool (with all the accessories), Grill, Fishing Poles and tackle, DVD Players, Netflix, Pool Table, Air Hockey Table, Stroller, Car seats (2), lunch bags for the park. I mean it had everything. My Grandson said he wanted to stay at the house and didn't want to go to Disney World cause the House had everything he liked. We went to Disney World! Coming back to home after a long day at Disney and Universal just continued to add to the experience. I can wait until next year. We have a time share but we will never use it in Orlando as long as we can stay in one of her properties. I just want to Thank Mrs. Baillie for allowing us to stay at one of her properties and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Orlando area.

Easter Break for 11 guest ( covering three generations )

A very spacious, well equiped villa ( especially if there is a toddler in the party). The pool is a lovely size and safe. It is a lovely peaceful location to return to after the hussle and bussle of the parks, which are only a short drive away. I had a really enjoyable holiday and would highly recommend this villa.

Feels like home ...

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

My family and I have been vacationing in Florida for many years. Since we found Sharon's villas four years ago we have not stayed anywhere else. We have stayed in both her five and six bedroom villas and both are beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The homes have everything in them that you could possibly need and also an amazing pool and deck area. It is a very comfortable house yet it has plenty of space for everyone. Sunset Lakes is located in a beautiful and quiet area but so close to everything - restaurants, supermarkets, shopping and, of course, Disney !!
Booking and communication with Sharon is always very easy and professional as she gets back to you very quickly with any information you may need. If you are nervous about booking, don't be - Sharon makes the process very easy.
For anyone considering staying in Orlando, I highly recommend Sharon's beautiful villas - you won't be disappointed !! :)

Fantastic Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Five stars for this one. Great villa, had everything we needed for those busy days out and also relaxing by the pool looking out over the lake. We have stayed at a number of villas in the Kissimmee area and this one puts them all to shame it just has those quality touches. Our dealings with the owner have been easy and straight forward.

Fantastic villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Well appointed villa with everything that you could need for your stay. 11 people stayed in the villa for two weeks and it never felt crowded. Great pool with lots of wildlife to see on and around the lake. Good location for Disney, Old Town and access to I4 for Universal. There is a supermarket just around the corner and plenty of restaurants and fast food outlets in the local area. We had a great holiday and would recommend the villa to anyone wanting to stay in Orlando

Spacious and relaxing home...

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

After coming to Florida for 6 years and staying at different villas each time, we picked this villa on a whim. It is simply beautiful! We also had an opportunity to meet Sharon, and talk with her about ourselves and some of the previous places we had stayed. This villa is amazing! Located in a quiet area, yet close to amenities, we were very happy with our stay. The pool was relaxing, the meals on the BBQ were wonderful each night, and returning to our "own" home after going to Disney was even better. Only one day of rain during our stay, but we remained occupied with the shopping and other activities nearby. The area was quiet, neighbors kept to themselves, and we were quiet comfortable.

This house was spacious enough for us, our daughter, two senior citizens, my sister, her husband, and their two sons. We had a bedroom to spare, but we filled it suitcases and purchases.

Communication with Sharon was fantastic during the rental process and while we were there. She is amazing and we won't hesitate to,rent from her again. Thank you!!

Owner's response: Hi Craig & Penny, thank you for your very kind comments about the villa and me... That is so lovely of you! I do try really hard to make renting the villa as hassle/worry free as possible so it's so lovely to hear that I'm doing well! Our villa is a real labour of love and again, it's great to hear such lovely comments and it makes it all worthwhile. We would love to have you stay with us again and you can make use of the 10% discount for repeat guests. Thank you once again for your custom and I hope you have a safe and pleasant trip home and take with you some fond memories of your 2017 trip to Florida. Best regards,Sharon

excellent & beautiful home

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

What an awesome home. Everything was just as pictured on the internet. We did not do a lot of cooking because we were not at the house for many meals besides breakfast. Did use the grill one night for a birthday dinner. We had all the dishes and cooking items that we needed. Found a grocery store close to the house to load up the refrigerator for all our snacking needs. That was nice. This was our first experience at renting a home and hopefully not our last. We had 6 kids & 5 adults and it worked out perfectly with the 4 girls & 2 boys. Space for everyone. Since it was in the 90's everyday the pool had a lot of use after a long day at the parks. Of course the main reason was 4 days at Walt Disney World. We took 1 day for Busch Gardens & frankly the kids liked that better. More roller coasters! With the exception of the 1 day we spent at the wave pool at the Disney Park. Only issue was a A/C problem. Service was called at 11:30pm when we arrived home and promptly came. Plugged drain shut system down. One confusing thing were directions for whirlpool/pool operation. Paper in house was not readable due to have gotten wet. Helpful if waterproof signage attached to pipes outside to make it easier to understand. Having pool at home made it easier for us, but if not the case...??? We had the greatest time with our family. Our first vacation with everyone together. If I can save up enough $$$ we would like to come again. Would definitely rent this villa again. Owner was a joy to work with, promptly answering any questions we had. If you choose this home you will not regret it.

American Heaven

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Firstly I have to say Sharon was a truly wonderful host.

I trawled through the many website trying to find the perfect home and thought I had found a little piece of Heaven...... ?
I contacted Sharon regarding my requirements and she was more than helpful with advice/feedback regarding Car Hire/Close proximity of Parks/Safety/Family Visitors and Entertainment etc.
Booking was easy and I made sure it was done ASAP as I didn’t want to risk missing out on this wonderful Villa.
My earlier concerns were truly unfounded and the Holiday was a lifetime experience my family will never forget and would love to do it again and again........there at the Villa !!!
On arrival at the airport we were picked up via car rental facility (Florida Transport), Billy the driver was amazing and took us food shopping and told us all about the amazing local eateries and places to visit. (He even knew Milton Keynes and the Local Pubs where we live from one of his UK visits)
Upon arriving at the Villa we knew we were going to love it here.......a Luxury Gated Villa in picturesque surroundings....... it was truly Amazing !!
Key Entry via the Lock Box was a nice touch so we didn’t need to wait for entry to the Villa.
The house lived up to ALL expectations and was really beautiful.....within one the Master Bedrooms was an ensuite that was simply heaven!!
Open Plan Living with TVs and Videos everywhere was great as it kept us entertained on the nights we rested with Swimming Pool, Pool table and Air Hockey for the more active within the group...lol!!
Billy/Colleague came back in the morning at a pre-arranged time to drive us to collect our Rental car and it couldn’t have been easier.....we were back on the road within 10 minutes.
Remember USA/Americans drive on the wrong side of the road lol!!!
Close to the Local amenities was one of our wishes and with Shops/ Eateries less than 2 minutes drive and Disney less than 15 minutes door to door ?...it definitely ticked our boxes.
The gated community was lovely and our Fitness runs around it proved quite popular with us...even on the hottest of days!!

Disney/Villa .......I ‘LL be BACK........................................................................Thanks again Sharon!!!

Date of visit: Aug to Sept 2016 (3 weeks)

Owner's response: Hi Andre, thank you so much for taking the time to write a lovely review... It is really helpful for other guests when they are going though the same process as you did when planning such a big/expensive trip to Orlando! Billy provides a great service and being collected from the airport means everyone can enjoy a drink on the plane! It also takes the stress out of finding your way around after such a long flight when you're all shattered... I hope you will stay in one of our villas again soon as you were a pleasure to help and such great guests looking after our villa during your stay. Thank you again and keep in touch! Kind regards, Sharon

Simply Perfect for a big family

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed at the house with our children. 6 bedrooms, 4 bath says it all. Pool table and air hockey in the garage was an extra pleasure. Kids felt like kings in the big beds and bedrooms and the master bedroom with it huge bathroom is simply amazing. Kitchen area is big - the pictures say it all. Simply loved our stay.

The build quality of the house is higher than we have seen in any house we rented so far in the US.

Communication before, while and after the stay with the owners was a pleasure. Hassel free, quick and helping with any question one might have. Security deposit was returned within a couple of days after we returned home.

All in all I can recommend this property to anyone who needs 12 beds at max. But even with less it was affordable and we do not regret having chosen this property for one single moment.

Big thanks to Sharon and her family for the trust in us to stay at their beautiful villa with lake view.
