The Games Room, formerly a double garage, contains a pool table & foosball/table soccer, and sofas for lounging. There is also a box with a selection of board games. For car parking, there is a full double driveway outside the garage, featuring a solar powered, motion activated security light – plenty of room for two cars, side by side.
The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms with a layout that gives the ability for combined families / larger parties to holiday together but have their own private space. Further sleeping accommodation is provided by the extremely comfortable queen sofa bed in the lounge.
All the bedding is provided and the beds are made up with clean linen before you arrive. Extra bedding is provided should you need it. The villa has air-conditioning throughout, so will remain at a constant cool temperature that will make you feel comfortable even if the temperatures are on the up and up outside, and will also help towards giving you a good nights sleep.

Maximum number of guests
The maximum number of guests is 8 (plus a baby).
The sofa bed is available to provide flexibility in the sleeping arrangements for the 8 guests.
The villa has a folding cot/playpen with bedding, a high chair, two lightweight strollers for those long days at the parks and a bed guard for the toddler who would like to be in a ‘big’ bed but isn’t totally confident about being out of a cot.
Although we are ‘on Disney’s doorstep’, we have tried to strike a balance in the decoration of our home. While the Disney bedroom and surrounding areas have lots of Disney links, we have kept the main living areas ‘Disney-free’ since not everyone who visits Orlando is ‘Mouse-obsessed’. We hope our guests appreciate this approach.

Our vacation getaway is truly a home from home, furnished to a high standard and with all the amenities you would expect, including a host of hi-tech features. This is a spacious and welcoming holiday destination within a secure gated community making an ideal destination for your vacation.
Sunset Lakes is a small, prestigious gated community and one of the closest to Orlando's main attractions. It is a mature development of detached pool homes surrounding 2 natural lakes, which attract many varieties of fish and wildlife. Relaxing in the peace and tranquility of this fabulous location it is hard to imagine that you are just 4 miles from the Main Gates of Disney. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoon relaxing by your own private pool & then return to the parks in minutes.
It also provides excellent access to the other attractions in the Orlando area, such as Seaworld and Universal Studios. Shops and restaurants are just a few minutes away and there are several high quality golf courses nearby. Easy access can be obtained onto Interstate 4 providing links to other parts of Florida including the Gulf Coast and Daytona Beach.
On site there is a communal pool & children’s play area, and if you bring your own rods you can fish in the well-stocked lake (catch and release). Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida.

Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Kissimmee, Florida
February 9, 2014
Great house! Owners were so pleasant to deal with. Property manager was available at any time and very helpful with providing information. The supply of cookies was a very nice touch. The house itself is very big/spacious. It definitely could accommodate a lot of people. The location is perfect and close to everything: parks, diners, stores etc. Would stay again!
Great location, great house
February 3, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. A lot of attention to details. Large windows give a lot of natural light. Fully loaded kitchen, perfect for cooking, even if it's once during vacations! We would have liked to be able to get a little more heat on cool, rainy days. The house is located close to Walt Disney and highway 192 and all of its restaurants, shops and activities. We had a great time visiting Fantasy of Flight, a much more complete experience than any other air museum.
Thank you, Chantal, for your kind words.
We are glad you and your family had an enjoyable vacation, but it was a pity you had a rather unusually cool spell.
We will ensure our local Management Company contacts guests in future to see if the AC needs adjusted to warm our home up a bit if needed - normally we have to try hard to keep it cool enough!
You were ideal guests and hope we can welcome you back to Sunset Villa.

We stayed in this home for almost 2 weeks in February, 2013. It was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in (and we were time share owners in the past... so we have seen our share of places). I read the reviews before renting this place and was impressed by the number of people who stated how clean the home was. I was not disappointed. Harry and Jean were SO helpful and patient with me and all of my questions. I was very impressed with their home and thought it was everything they present it to be... and more. We couldn't have been happier. The house is spacious and homey. Everything is clean and many of the items in the drawer (i.e. utensils, etc) looked brand new. The beds were comfortable and the pool was WONDERFUL! Robert, their maintenance man, was attentive and very helpful during our stay. We used him as a "local" resource for us when we had questions about restaurants, etc. He was very kind and we were glad to know we had someone right there to ask questions when needed. My husband and son enjoyed the "rec" room with pool table and got a great deal of use out of it. I can't stress enough how happy we were with our stay. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Harry and Jean are very kind, patient and helpful when booking with them. I highly recommend this home and feel you will not be disappointed if you stay here. We will, hopefully, have the opportunity to return to Florida and will be contacting Harry and Jean to see if their lovely home is available. I have recommended this home to many of my friends back in Wisconsin! Thanks so much Harry and Jean!
A Home away from home
January 18, 2013
I rented this beautiful home to give my Mom a comfortable place to stay while we visited my brother in the area. After a difficult experience with a 20 hour delayed flight, my Mom was able to rest in the very comfortable surroundings. She does not travel often, and never this far, so the home away from home atmosphere hepled her relax. Some days she did not want to venture out, and I felt comfortable enough with the gated neighborhood to let her stay while my brother and I enjoyed the area. It is even better than the pictures show. Having all the towels and linens provided is wonderful. All the appliances are like new. Very nicely decorated. I liked that the price included the taxes and cleaning fee. No need to calculate the "actual" cost. And the cost per day was less than a decent hotel, but much more room. I will look for this same place when I return for future visits. You don't have to do all the main attractions to appreciate the location and ammenities of this home.

We had such a wonderful stay at your villa!!! The house had everything to accommodate each and everyone of our entire family of 7... The kids enjoyed the play station, recreation room and not to mention the pool... Thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful home.. We have rented villas in the past but yours was by far the best one!!!

As a person that usually doesnt shop online for a rental place for a vacation I have to admit I was nervous about renting a home but the more I was in contact with the owners of this home I felt more comfortable about it. When we arrived we found the home very clean and comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the pool and other activities that was there in the home. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to rent for a nice Florida Vacation. I am a Tupperware consultant and we have Jubilee in Orlando every year so if my family is able to go with me in the future I will have no doubts on renting this home again. This home is very close to disney!!
We absolutely loved your home. It was more beautiful than we thought - the pictures were fabulous, but to see it in person was totally different. And, let me say also, that I am a compulsive neat freak, and was super impressed with how incredibly clean every square inch was! Whoever does your cleaning- kudos to them! All the touches of home made it the perfect home away from home. Thank you for providing such a great property, we all greatly enjoyed it!
(Smith, Maine, USA, April 2012)
Thank you so much for responding so quickly to our last minute need for accommodation!
We had a wonderful stay and will recommend your home to all our friends!
Will definitely be back the next time we visit Kisimmee. (Hudson, Florida, September 2011)
We just returned to Israel from our holiday and wanted to thank you for a lovely stay at the villa – it’s a beautiful place. (Dana, Tel Aviv, Israel, October 2011)
Beautiful clean villa with plenty of space and amenities.The villa is ideally placed for easy access to all the theme parks. The owners were helpful and responded promptly to all our queries and we would be more than happy to recommend this property to our friends, this was our third visit to the villa and we hope to stay there again in the future.
The local shops are perfect for quick visits on the way back from the parks and major supermarkets are within a 10 minute drive. We visited several of the parks and would highly recommend Busch Gardens (about an hour away) for the fab rides and animals, this would appeal to families with teenagers whilst Magic Kingdom is a must for the little ones. (Bunker, Wales, UK, October 2011)
This is the 4th time we stayed at Sunset Lakes. I must say that this is one of the best homes we stayed in. The beds were very comfortable and the home is well furnished. The home was very clean and well taken care of. The Owners are very responsive to any questions prior to booking and during the stay. When we return to Florida we will definitely stay here again! (Lew, Wisconsin, USA, December 2011)
The house was absolutely wonderful; very clean and very well furnished. We had no problems at all. The location was nice as the area was away from all the traffic, but still close enough to everywhere we wanted to go. The pool was warm and refreshing. We would definitely recommend this house to other travelers.(Nicklow, Pennsylvania, USA, February 2012)
This was our first time renting a home in Florida and we certainly had a great time. The villa was clean and well maintained. The property is a short drive to the parks and shopping. The property manager and the owner were very welcoming and quick to respond to emails or phone for any questions. Flat screens TVs in each of the bedrooms, roomy living room/dining room, and kitchen that is fully equipped. The game room kept the kids and adults entertained the pool in the back was perfect to cool down after a long day at the parks. Overall, it was a great experience - relaxing and stress-free. We look forward to staying at this villa again on our next orlando trip. Harry and Robert, thank you for a wonderful experience. (Asuncion, USA, July 2011
We had a wonderful time, the villa was just as described in a lovely quiet gated community only 15 minutes from Disney and five minutes from the shops and restaurants. Everything that you might need was there including strollers, a games room, pool toys and a very welcome "welcome pack". Robert from the villa management company was also very courteous and helpful and only at the end of the phone should you need anything which I would doubt. Harry was very helpful and provided great directions and some useful local information. We hope to come back again. (Trainor, July 2011)
We loved how close it was to Disney. The home was spacious and comfortable and we liked the security of the gated community. (Kelly, UK, July 2011)
This house was well maintained and close to everything we wanted to see. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool every day. We had 9 people in the house and had plenty of room. I would definitely stay there again. (Morris, USA, June 2011)
