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.

Hi Dawn,

We had a lovely time! Your home is beautiful.....we didnt want to leave.

Cant fault your home...... it is very accommodating and very close to the parks. The sunsets were amazing, the hot tub and pool just brilliant.

I will definitely recommend your home to friends and family and maybe in a couple of years come back and stay again----- Ill start saving now! Thanks again for making our stay at your home so memorable.

The Bowles Family


Hi Dawn,

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

The Lyman Family


Hi Dawn,

I recently had the pleasure of staying at your villa the first couple of weeks in June with my brother, Mark Young and family.

I wanted to drop you a quick line to say how fantastic your villa is, it was perfect, we all had such a great time. The view of the lake from the villa either early morning or after a day of walking around the parks was just gorgeous, a prime spot for watching the crazy lightning storms!

It was my first time in America and absolutely loved every minute of it and will definitely be returning to go to all of those places we never had time to visit and hopefully your villa will be available.

The Slater Family


Hi Dawn,

Sunset Dream villa was all and more, A very spacious Villa with all the needs for a family vacation.A swimming pool overlooking a great view, where we watched the wildlife going about there everyday routines.The Disney Parks are ideally located for this villa, only 15mins away, which is ideal as less travelling is more fun to be had at the parks.There are also plenty of great places to eat close by and of course a visit to the old town is a must, which is located only 15mins away also.All in All my family and friends all enjoyed this spectacular villa and location and will recommend this to anyone.

The Young Family


Hi Dawn

We had a fabulous holiday, the villa was great, the weather was good, we had no complaints, and were amazed how well equipped and everything you could possibly need was there. Being so close to Disney we didnt spend enough time at the villa or around the pool, think you really need 3 weeks.

We will definitely come back in the future and are already recommending the villa to friends we have spoke to,

If I did have a complaint it would be the holiday was not long enough.

The Walton Family


Hi Dawn,

Just to let you know we have arrived and are so pleased. Your house is amazing and it has outdone our expectations completely. The kids have not got out of the pool yet!

The Lugg Family


Wished we had found your villa first - would have saved a lot of time trawling through other villas. Weather was exceptional and the hot tub was an absolute treat, especially watching the sunset go down over the lake.

The Westall Family


Hi Dawn,

Just wanted to let you know that we totally loved the villa. The house is amazing and so is the location. We couldnt have asked for better. There was more than enough room for everyone. The pool was beautiful and the hot tub everyone used happily.

We would definitely recommend the house to our friends!!!!! Again thank you so very much for the use of the house!!!

The Lambert Family



Just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had in Florida. The villa was fantastic, the kids loved the pool and the games room. It had everything we needed. Your Management Company were fantastic when we had a problem with the pool temperature and arrived within 20 minutes and sorted the problem straight away.

Thanks again, we had a fantastic time and will recommend your villas to everyone.

The Stewart Family


We have just returned from an amazing fortnight in Florida, staying at the beautiful Villa Sunset Dream. Dawns friendly and prompt response to every minute (and probably annoying!) query we had before even setting off on our holiday really was second to none service. She also arranged the provision of additional items that werent already in the villa, a true extra mile which was very much appreciated.

The villa is exactly as described or better in fact with wonderful pool in a lovely setting, which is so hand for the airport, Disney and the other parks/shopping that we would not ever consider staying at a Disney resort now. Home from home and freedom from the crowds and hustle and bustle.

We cannot recommend Villa Sunset Dream enough for your holiday and we will definitely be returning with the family from Scotland and Australia.

Thank you for helping make our kids first Disney holiday a dream!!

The Gillies 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

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Thank you for allowing us to rent your villa, we absolutely loved every minute! It is in a great location, beautiful and modern, so well equipt and had everything we could possibly need.

We were all kicking ourselves once we had left as realised that we hadnt watched the sunset as had been in the parks or out and about!

Villa sunset dream is amazing, it is in a good accessible location, easy to find and within a 10 minute drive (or less) to the supermarkets ( target and Walmart) and very close to the Disney parks.

The villa is spacious, super clean and decor is modern and equipped with everything you could possibly need! and I mean everything!

The pool over looking the lake is beautiful , private and relaxing and has sun from mid morning until evening- it is definitely a sun trap!

I can not recommend this beautiful villa enough, we thoroughly enjoyed our time staying at this lovely home and will definitely be back!!

Morning Dawn. Our time at your beautiful villa is nearly at an end. We have so enjoyed your hospitality and the welcome pack was a really nice touch and much appreciated after a long flight. Your villa is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in and has covered our every need.
One of the pool floats burst while we were there so we have replaced that along with the pool net. We also used the house phone for a quick call to phone a local golf course as our mobiles weren’t connecting.

As I intimated we would love to book again for next September for 4 adults and 2 children

Thanks once again for everything and look forward to hearing from you re dates available very soon

Glad to say that we have overcome the jet lag.

We all had an excellent time staying at Villa Sunset Dream. Your Villa is absolutely beautiful and everything about it was perfect for the whole family. After busy days at the parks it was wonderful to go back to the villa and have use of the pool (with the wonderful views of the lake) and also the games room. At the end of the holiday we spent 2 days relaxing in the villa to make the most of the sunshine!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the villa for a holiday for anyone wishing to visit Orlando.

Many thanks for everything and our very best wishes.

Fully recommend this villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The booking process was straight forward and the villa owners were very helpful answering all the questions we had.

The villa was better than the pictures portrayed.Our initial walk through was accompanied with the sound track of sighs, oohs and aahs as we discovered the calm feel of the villa, the luxury of the decor and furniture, the generosity and practicallity of the welcome gift. We were delighted with there being 2 master suites. Both beautifully finished and very comfortable. Plenty of towels for indoor use and again plenty for use outside around the pool. The Kitchen, was lifted to the next level by the amount of glasses, cups plates and cutlery as well as serving bowls and preparation equipment.

The all important pool and deck area is so comfortable and relaxing. Beds, waterproof chairs and table, table and chairs for outside dinning all situated around a lovely pool. We were in the water every day comfortably heated in the orlando winter weather. And not to forget the hottub. The gamesroom equipped with pool table, air hockey and fussball table., nice to come home and relax in.

But for us the daily giver was the situation of the villa. A ring of homes built around the lake. Calming views from the pool deck is amazing, relaxing, private and atmospheric. And finally the situation of the villa is one the best positions we have ever stayed in. So close to Disney and plenty of restaurants and shops. AMAZING.

The management company were so helpful and responsive to our couple of needs.

We would fully recommend this villa for your holiday. But, not so much that it is so full that we do not get to return for our next holiday.

What a wonderful villa! The location is ideal, the owners were fabulous (we visited during the holidays and they were sooo helpful)! We even met the pool cleaning team who were lovely too.

Absolutely beautiful

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Dear Dawn,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you, and to let you know we have had a fantastic holiday. Your villa is absolutely beautiful and we have enjoyed every single minute we have spent in it. Everything is spotlessly clean; the beds and furnishings are extremely comfortable and everything we could possibly need is provided.

We have had great fun at the parks, but it has been so lovely, also, to relax, have fun and enjoy your AMAZING swimming pool, not only during the day, but in the evening, too, with the colour changing lights! We have even seen turtles by the lake, which was so exciting!

The Disney bedroom and bathroom were very special too, and the girls loved it all.

Thank you, also, for the milk, etc. It was a very welcome sight after such a long journey, and much appreciated.

We will be very sad to leave tomorrow, but hopefully, one day, we will return. 😊

Many thanks for everything.

Our very best wishes,

Ann, Russell, Angel and Crystal.

Excellent Location, immaculate

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have just returned from a two week stay in Sunset Dream and were absolutely delighted. It was a lovely villa; immaculate and very well resourced even down to the hair straighteners! Absolutely family friendly with things like highchairs potty, baby bath etc. The kid’s highlights were the Disney bedroom (especially the dress up outfits) and the pool!

Very quiet, gated community in an excellent location for Disney parks, shopping and restaurants (the welcome pack at the villa included a very handy shortcut to the Disney parks).

Thank you for making our stay so easy and enjoyable. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family!

Magical villa close to Disney

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Magical Villa close to Disney and all that’s offered in and around Kissimmee. The Villa was above our expectations, it easily caters for a large family who want some downtime from the parks. We were an all-adult party, but would have no issues recommending this to families with young ones, who would enjoy the themed bedrooms. The villa was a true home away from home and a place of sanctuary. The villa is close to lots of places to eat and drink along the 192 with supermarkets also close by. We were there in June- July and the pool was a welcoming inviting space to get away from the heat and humify. Although we paid for the hot tub it was used only once as the heat made it a little uncomfortable. However, this is our first time to visit at this time of year as we normally travel in March /April and I can see the attraction of the hot tub at that time.

Animal Kingdom is about 5 minutes away by car, and even when visiting the other Disney parks or Disney Springs, by following the signs back to Animal Kingdom you missed all the traffic on the I4 & 192, so it made it easy to nip back to the villa following an early morning visit to a park, you could then fuel up and hit another Disney Park later in the evening saving on the parking charges.

Now, lets turn to Dawn, what can I say. Dawn makes it very easy which takes away all the stress of booking a villa through a person you have never met. Just a few emails and it is like you have known Dawn for years. The booking process is simple. We were there for a special birthday as my daughter was turning 21 while in Florida, so we wanted to go somewhere special, Dawn went beyond what I expected providing recommendations and details of the distance from the villa and cost.

We truly did not want to come home and when we are ready to visit Florida again, I now know where my first email will be sent.

Thank you for helping to make a magical memory.

How villa rental should be done

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hi Dawn
Having returned from our 3 week holiday, I can say just how delighted we all were with the villa. You have thought of everything and your support to us throughout our stay is testimony to how villa rental should be done.
The hot tub and swimming pool become used every day to recover from the heat and all the walking.
The estate is so peaceful yet so close to everything I am not sure anything else could be wanted.
Just a massive thanks and I am sure to let some friends know who are planning on a visit

kind regards The Paxtons

A Truly Wonderful Stay

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have just returned from a superb 2 week stay at Villa Sunset Dream. "Location, location, location..." as the saying goes, this villa is perfectly located for visiting Disney. So close it meant it was easy to pop back to the villa in the afternoon for a swim and a relax before heading back out in the evenings.

The villa itself is amazing; clean, spacious and extremely well equipped. The highlight has to be the stunning pool area and views over the lake. The sunset views across the lake and peaceful surroundings are beautiful and much appreciated after busy days in the parks - not all villas can offer this which makes this one very special. The pool itself is as large as it looks in the pictures and we all had so much fun in it.

Already checking the calendar for 2024 availability, can't wait to visit again!

Thankyou Dawn, it was a truly wonderful stay.

Fantastic Villa Sunset Dream

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We just returned from a 3 week trip to Orlando for two weeks 6 of us stayed at Dawn’s fantastic villa Sunset Dream, we all had our own space topped off with a fantastic pool hot tub and balcony. Overlooking a beautiful lake with the wildlife especially the cranes drying their wings in the sun I could have watched all day!
On arrival we had milk soda and cereal to set us up for the first day. The management team were very impressive and responsive when needed.
Beds were super comfy but be warned at 5’2 I needed to take the step from the kitchen to get into the upstairs master the dressing gowns were also a nice touch.
The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and dishes to prepare a meal and the laundry was super easy to use.
All in all I can’t recommend Dawn’s villa enough for location, space and comfort.

Villa great, location great, owners great!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We have returned from our second stay at Sunset Dream. The villa was as lovely and spacious as we remembered. The location is fab for Disney in particular. Loads of restaurants and supermarkets just a short drive away. The villa facilities were great too.

During our visit, hurricane Ian hit and we lost power for a couple of nights which was no fault of the villa owners. The whole estate and much of the surrounding area was out and all the parks etc were closed. However, Dawn demonstrated concern for us and as soon as phone/email contact was possible, she was able to just us up to date with when power was expected to be reinstated.

Pre-visit Dawn was very accommodating with our dates, actually delaying her own visit so we could extend our trip by a couple of nights. She responds quickly to queries and has a wealth of knowledge which for first timers would be so helpful.

Villa great, location great, owners great!

Would return for a third visit.

I can’t say enough about it, it was absolutely perfect thankYou, you have thought of absolutely everything and we could not have wanted more, we don’t have small children but thought your dressing up costumes etc was such a lovely touch. The bedrooms were wonderful, so spacious and the beds comfy, and I loved the walk in dressing rooms. We were a group made up of two families and we all agreed it was so spacious for 8 people. The sunset lakes community were also lovely and friendly and the villa is situated so close to everything it was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be rebooking in the future.

Special Memories

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Just back from the most amazing 2 weeks at Villa Sunset Dream at Sunset Lakes. Fantastic location close to all the Disney Parks and not far from Universal. There was 4 adults and 3 children and lots of space in the villa to meet all our needs. Large king size rooms with massive bathrooms, children loved their rooms and we all loved the family space with open plan kitchen living room with all the facilities required including games, tv and games consoles. Pool area was well used and enjoyed by all. Would highly recommend this Villa and gave us lots of special memories to take home. Thank you Dawn for an amazing stay.

Amazing holiday, stunning location

We had such an amazing holiday and the villa was perfect for us!

Absolutely stunning, peaceful, well kept and secure location, very close to Disney with plenty of shops/restaurants nearby which added to our great stay!

The villa was comfortable and well equipped with everything we could possibly need, plenty of towels, pool towels, even robes which were a blessing after such long days at the parks!
The welcome pack that greeted us was greatly appreciated after such a long journey!

We especially enjoyed the fantastic pool and pool area along with the beautiful views of the lake watching the sunrise/sunsets.

This villa had it all and we will definitely hope to stay here again on our next visit to Orlando.

Thank you for your excellent communication throughout, wish we could of stayed longer!

Absolutely stunning home

Hi Dawn

Hope you are well.

I cannot thank you enough for letting us stay in your beautiful home in Orlando. Nothing quite prepared me for what greeted us when we opened the door. An absolutely stunning home awaited us. Loved the Mickey rug, it was gorgeous.

Perfect in every way. A well equipped kitchen with a fab welcome pack which was very much appreciated. The luggage scales were very handy for coming home. 🙈 Living area was very comfortable for 8 and the recliners very welcome after a day at the parks.

The bedrooms were lush and the largest beds I’ve ever seen. A very comfortable sleep had by us all for the duration of our stay. The villa was perfect for a two family stay as we were not on top of each other and each had their own floor to gain personal space.

A short drive from WDW and wallmart a stones throw away as were many eating places. I did not want to check out and would not hesitate to stay again. A stunning home in a stunning community.

Wonderful Experience

Thank you again for the wonderful experience we had as a family in Orlando! Your home is perfect and well-maintained. We've stayed at several rentals that looked great from the outside but were not maintained or well organized. We had no complaints and would not change anything. You did a wonderful job at communicating with us and helping organize our stay! Beautiful view, very safe neighborhood that we did a lot of walking, and very peaceful!!
Take care and appreciate your organized, friendly manner!

Can't recommend enough

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a smooth journey back and landed into snow at the airport so that was not so good!

I'd like to just let you know how happy we were staying in your villa, Sunset Dreams. We had a few different households holidaying together so it was great to have so much space and separate bathrooms to accommodate everyone comfortably.

I genuinely cannot think of anything that could have been added to make our stay more comfortable...you have thought of everything! Plenty of towels, bedding, pillows, tea towels and the fixtures and fittings were also all of a high standard so it felt like a home from home rather than a holiday let!

The view....what can I say?! It was fabulous to sit with a drink in hand watching the sunset over the lake, truly beautiful. We had plenty of games of pool and air hockey during our evenings too!

The location of the villa was also good, close to the parks and the local shops/restaurants The neighbourhood around the villa was lovely and well kept as well.

Overall I can't recommend this villa enough...thank you so much :) xx

Great experience, top knotch

This was a great experience for us. Plenty of room to spread out and I definitely took advantage of alone time by the pool fountain. Spotless and modern clean look! Comfy beds for when you need that warm feeling when the AC is on. Easy to come in and out. Nice community, very quiet but you still feel close to society. Beautiful view of the lake in the early morning and at sunset. Consistently cool which was such a relief from the heat of mid july in florida. So close to Disney and shopping and eating- we stayed for 8 days and went through only half a tank of gas. Some drinks and a half gallon of milk was waiting for us in the fridge which was nice to not have to urgently run out after a long day of travel. I definitely look forward to staying again. Dawn was easy to reach and communicated back to me right away with any updates on the property. Easy to read guide was there for us which laid out everything. Thank you Dawn and Alan for everything. Top notch stay and I will recommend to my friends and family!

We had a fabulous holiday thank you.

Temperature and time difference has been a real shock to the system.

Thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa Sunset Dream. The villa looked exactly like the photos. The sunsets we saw from the pool were spectacular! Your home was very spacious for 7 of us. Beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. The details you provided enabling us to find and access the villa were spot on. We did have to contact the management company a couple of times, and their response was immediate. (Rob was very helpful) Animal Kingdom was literally a 10 minute drive away. Would recommend Villa Sunset Dream 100%. Hopefully we will be able to return in the future.
The only downside was that we were so busy every day we didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked to relax in the villa and make use of the pool/hot tub. Next time we'll have to book for 3 weeks.

This is our second visit to 'Villa Sunset Dream' and it is just such a lovely villa, from its facilities, location and the amazing sunsets over the lake.

The customer service from Dawn and Alan is exceptional and there is a great folder in the villa full of very helpful information.

We used the pool and hot tub so much more on this visit and just enjoyed relaxing in the outside area which is so peaceful.

Absolutely perfect

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Absolutely perfect. Our family have just spent 2 weeks in this beautiful spacious property which was very clean and well maintained. The Disney bedroom and provision of toys and character outfits went down a storm with our 2 grandchildren. The kitchen was well equipped for anyone who wanted to prepare food and eat at home. Apart from having a barbecue on one of our "rest days" we ate out most of the time and found an abundance of good restaurants nearby. The Longhorn Steak house is definitely a must. The property was in an ideal location for quick access to the theme parks and the information provided at the property gave us many useful tips about the surrounding area. The view from the master bedroom balcony was amazing and it was gorgeous to sit out there and watch the beautiful sunsets. The outside area along with the fabulous pool and hot tub were amazing especially after a long day at the theme parks. The pool and hot tub were maintained as promised each Friday. During our stay we did have to contact the maintenance team on one occasion it was the morning after we had arrived and we did not have any hot water. There were very clear instructions on how to contact the team and the problem was dealt with immediately by 2 lovely polite and friendly guys. It was a quick fix as the fuse had tripped following a thunder storm the previous night. Dawn the owner of the property provided excellent customer service and promptly answered any queries we had prior to our holiday. Overall this property was up and beyond our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others. We would like to say a big thank you to Dawn for the use of her property which allowed us as a family to enjoy a wonderful holiday.

Thanks a lot Dawn and Alan for letting us stay in your house!
We were two families in total 9 persons staying in this fantastic villa for 5 nights. Sunset Dream really lived up to all the high expectations we had when we arrived. A really nice, clean and well maintained property that had everything you could wish for. Kids( and parents) just loved the pool and hot tub and the layout of the villa was just perfect for two families.
Everything was very professional handled by Dawn and Alan Murray from the first contact until we left the villa. Very clear arrival instructions and file full of great information in the villa. Very easy to get in touch with Dawn and quick response to any questions at all time.

We have been going to Florida for over a decade and this is by far the best villa that we have stayed in. 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 ??????????

Everything we hoped for

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Villa Sunset Dream was everything we had hoped for and more! As a part of 5 adults we were keen to book a villa that had enough space for all of us and we certainly chose the right one, Sunset Dream is huge!
Each bedroom was very spacious and the two that had en-suites were amazing, we all said that we've never seen bathrooms so big.
The villa was very clean and tidy with a lovely open plan design downstairs for the kitchen (which was really well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc.), living area and hallway. The large TV is a smart TV that has all the modern on demand apps installed which was great for the occasional evenings where we didn't feel like going out.
The highlight of the villa though for us (and i'm sure for most guests) was the pool! It was so much bigger than what we expected and you could easily swim in it, rather than just splash around.
Even when all five of us got in there was still ample room, we really can't pick any faults with the pool and outside dining area - it was all perfect :)
Overall we can't praise this villa enough, we've been to Florida a number of times now but this was our first time staying in a villa...it certainly won't be our last though! We would struggle to think of a reason why we wouldn't book one of Dawn's villa's next time either.
They are in a superb location on a lovely complex, Animal Kingdom is the closest Disney Park which is just 10 minutes away (without traffic).

Thank you Dawn for letting us stay in your lovely villa and we hope to visit again soon!

Great House

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Great house with everything you need! My family of 7 (4 adults, 3 kids) just returned from a wonderful stay at the Sunset Villa. The house itself was very clean and had absolutely everything that you need. Great living room/kitchen area that was very open with plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms were all roomy and beds were comfortable. We had asked for the pool heat to be on and it was definitely warm. I have stayed at previous places and requested the same, however the pool still seemed a little chilly....not this time! Lots of patio room for lounging as well as outdoor dining. There is a nice little lake behind the house that provides lovely views. It's nice to not be starring at another house directly behind you. The kids did some fishing and managed to catch one small fish. Dawn and the management company were absolutely delightful to deal with. Dawn was always extremely quick to reply to any questions and was always accommodating. We had to call the management company on our first night there when we couldn't get the pool/hot tub to turn on. It was a simple timer that can be adjusted depending on when you want to use the pool the most. The management company came to the house within 10 minutes of our phone call, and were terrific and friendly."

Thanks so much Dawn for sharing your lovely home with us. We really enjoyed our recent stay . The home is ideally suited for Disney and other Orlando attractions. Unlike many rental homes this one really is close to everything you need. The beds are very comfortable, the outdoor area is lovely with ample seating, overlooking a pretty little lake. It's a very peaceful, restful environment. The grill was new for our stay. Another thing that sets this home apart - the pool really is heated to a wonderful temperature. This doesn't always happen at other rental homes. Thank you again. Everything was wonderful."

Beautiful Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Feeling almost back to normal now and reality is slowly returning after an amazing holiday which is partly down to your beautiful villa.
We have been using sunset lakes for the last 15 yrs staying in various different villas along the way and we have to say that your villa, sunset dream, has been the best. The fixtures, furnishings, equipment and layout made it more than a home from home for our party of 7. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and there was some nice touches left to help us settle in. The highlight of any villa for us is the pool area and your perfectly positioned large pool deck with plenty of seating and outdoor furniture made this the most popular area. The multicoloured pool lights meant the kids and adults could use the pool late at night.
We would also like to mention your management team who we had a lovely chat with during their routine maintenance of the grounds and pool.
We will for the foreseeable future always return to sunset lakes as a base for our Florida holiday and would without hesitation look to see if you had avaliability of your villa.

Wish we could come back now

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Thank you for 2 amazing weeks in your lovely home. It was the perfect size for us as 8 adults need to be able to find their own space.

Everything was immaculately clean and the beds and sofas were so comfortable, not that we spent much time in them as we were so busy. The bathrooms were great, light and spacious and having 4 showers was a total God send.

There was nothing we needed that was not provided and we were really sad when it was time to leave. The pool and hot tub were spot on temperature wise, the sunsets were incredible viewed from the balcony and the pool area and the layout of house lent itself brilliantly to a group.

I have stayed in 5 other villas prior to this visit, most have been delightful but i would totally recommend anyone needing 4 – 5 bedrooms to stay in your villa and I am hoping we will be coming back also. Sunset Lakes is a lovely community, quiet after the madness of the parks and extremely picturesque.

Additionally I would like to thank you for all your assistance with our booking, everything was arranged with ease and all the details we needed readily available – I just wish we could come back now.

Everything we could possibly need

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

I just thought I’d drop you an email to say what a lovely time we all had whilst staying at your amazingly homely villa!

My daughter was upset that she had to leave and wanted to stay there permanently!!
The villa had everything we could possibly need

The location of the villa was brilliant, not only was it a lovely quiet estate (we kept an eye out for the alligator, we think we spotted it a few times in the water but didn’t see it out and about!) but it was really close to the parks too - we used the shortcut and this saved a massive amount of time. We slotted in a few lazy days by the pool and shopping days at the malls / outlet centres. The folder on the table which advises you of the best days to visit certain parks was a massive help! 3 weeks was definitely the right amount of time to go away for, we got through everything on the itinerary i created :)

The sea screamer that you suggested was amazing, we managed to get right at the back and see the dolphins from a few feet away, we spent the whole day there on the beach which was lovely!

Thank you so much for providing such lovely accommodation, I will be definitely recommending your villas to family and friends - I’d certainly re-book if we were to ever come back!

Thank you

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The villa was very clean and everything worked beautifully.

Your home has everything you could possibly need and more - the only thing we missed were egg cups.

We would definitely stay at your villa again - this was the fifth time we have been to Florida and stayed in villas, but this was by far the best. Will recommend to friends.

The booking process was very efficient, very quick responses to our many questions

Thank you so much for the best family holiday ever. Your home is amazing!

Gem of a villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Extremely clean and fresh throughout the villa including the external areas like the pool and hot tub. Everything was working except the lights in the pool but not sure if we just couldn't figure it out or if they were actually not working.

We were more than happy with the appliances available, we certainly didn't expect to find things such as straighteners etc so don't feel there is anything we can think of to add.

Honestly we can't wait to come back! We have already recommended your villa to friends and family.

You have a gem of a villa, it's spacious and well presented, we felt very well looked after and enjoyed coming back to the villa after a long day at the parks to watch Netflix or relax in the pool. The views over the lake are incredible, the resort itself is beautiful and everyone we met were incredibly friendly. It's situated in the perfect location with the supermarket round the corner, liquor store, Harley Davidson and Disney literally 5-10 minutes away (the short cut recommended by yourselves was perfect). We can't wait to return in a couple years.

Surpassed our expectations

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

The rental surpassed our expectations

The service was outstanding. The owners were always courteous and prompt with their responses and the management team quickly and efficiently took care of the few issues we had. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset over the lake from our enclosed pool and hot tub. The home was clean, full of amenities (even books, games and movies) and really spacious ( 5 bedrooms, several bathrooms, big kitchen, a game room, etc.) We also liked the property's safety features, such as the house alarm, door alarm by the pool and being in a gated community. It was in an excellent location-- only 5 minutes from Disney World and only minutes from several stores and restaurants. There were 7 adults and 2 children in our group. Everyone loved this place!

Clean and Beautiful

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

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

Nicest property

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hi Dawn
We have just returned from villa Sunset Dream and wanted to let you know what a great time we all had.We have travelled to Florida many times in the past and your villa is the nicest property we have ever stayed in.
Everything was perfect including the pool heating which was at the right temp from day one!The hot tub is great and the view from the pool beautiful.
Sean from the management company was really helpful and polite .Overall a fabulous holiday and when we return we would love to stay at the villa again.
Thanks once again

service provided by Dawn is the best I have ever received

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed in the sunset dream between 13/11/15 and 27/11/15. We were a group of 5 adults and twin 6 month old boys. The villa itself was out of this world. It had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We had stayed at Disney and universal hotels the week before and just didn't feel relaxed at all. As soon as we made our way through the gates of the sunset lakes community we started to relax. The villa is in a beautiful location. The lake view was stunning and so lovely to wake up to everyday. We have been coming to Orlando for years but this was the first time we stayed in a villa. It is unlikely that we will ever be able to enjoy a hotel stay again!! The service provided by Dawn is the best I have ever received. We can't wait to return to this gorgeous villa and would highly recommend staying here to anyone that is considering visiting Orlando.

Booking was easy

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Everything worked, eveything was thought of, even coasters. We would stay again and recommend to friends (I wanted to stay longer). Booking was very easy. All your info was very helpful. We normally stay on Universal Blvd, so this area was new to us. Everything was easy to find. The area was so peaceful.

Beautiful Villa, by far the best

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Hi Dawn,

Beautiful villa with all the comforts you could need and ideal for a family. Resort was great for the kids with a playground and fishing which they loved and it really is only 4 miles from Disney which was very convenient.
We would not think twice about booking this villa again and highly recommend it. We have stayed in many villas this was by far the best.

Photographs don't do it justice

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Just like to say we had a wonderful time at your villa.
The photographs don't do it justice as it feels far more spacious once you're living in it.
The facilities are excellent - the kitchen is well equipped, the utility area was very useful and there were plenty of fresh towels. Everything was very clean and well prepared when we arrived.
If you're visiting the Parks, it's in a perfect location, taking 15 to 30 minutes to get anywhere. A large supermarket and other shops and restaurants are just five minutes drive
By the way did you know you have a small alligator in the lake. Awesome.
Thank you so much.We are hoping to book the villa again in the near future.

Not enough time

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Thanks for the welcome home email. We contacted Norma early on re the waste disposal and hot tub and she solved both problems over the phone.

Would definitely stay again and would recommend to friends and family. Our only regret is that we didn't have as much time as we would have liked to just chill at the villa because we were attempting to see all the parks ( a punishing schedule considering the heat). As you know our group covered a wide age group and everyone enjoyed the villa, the youngsters really loved the pool and the games room and were asking when we were coming back (starting saving !) The whole booking process was smooth and trouble free and the information provided made for easy access to the shops and attractions. Thank you very much for your help and I hope we will be contacting you again in the near future.
