Description from owner

Welcome to our villa, The Lake House at Sunset Lakes. The Lake House at Sunset Lakes is a luxury lakeside rental villa in the Orlando Florida area just minutes from Disney World and a short drive from Universal Studios. It was fully renovated and refurnished in 2013. The Lake House at Sunset Lakes provides all the modern amenities that should be expected from a 5-star vacation home including a games room. The villa is located on a tree lined street in the quiet gated community of Sunset Lakes. This location is a true oasis in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. Whether you’ve just done “Dumbo or Die” at the Magic Kingdom, spent the day on the links converting that 96 into a 69, or watched some exciting baseball spring training, you can return through the gates of this established community into a peaceful, serene environment.

THE RETREAT: The Retreat is a four-bedroom villa with a south facing pool overlooking Sunset Lake. From the pool deck, which is bathed in sun all day, you can watch the wild life on the lake. Wild life includes ibis, sand hill cranes, ducks, anhingas, ospreys, cormorants, bald eagles, turtles, fish and the occasional small alligator. In 2013 the Lake House was completely renovated and refurnished in a contemporary style with tile floors throughout. The villa has four bedrooms which can sleep up to 8 guests. The master bedroom opens up onto the pool deck and lake. The second master is nestled in a cosy corner of the villa. Both master bedrooms can sleep two. Each of the twin bedrooms can also comfortably sleep two. One of the twin bedrooms can be made up into a Disney theme room for the young (or young at heart). The heart of the Lake House is the open concept Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen area where families can gather in the evening to recount the day’s adventures be they at the theme parks, golf course, beach etc. The Lake House has a games rooms where pool and, darts games are available.

VILLA’S FEATURES: Free wireless internet is available throughout the villa. In the living room the entertainment center offers a 55” smart TV, with HD cable, blue ray and Netflix. There is a video and book library available along with an assortment of board games. Each of the bedrooms has its own flat screen TV with cable and Blu-ray player. North American free calling is available on the phone service. Fishing gear is available in the garage. The screened in pool deck has an assortment of loungers, chairs and table so that one can enjoy the sun in comfort. There is also a BBQ for al fresco dining. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances including dishwasher, microwave stove, ice maker equipped fridge, toaster, coffee maker, kettle etc. The list could go on but in short The Lake House is one of the best equipped villas in the Orlando area.

SECURITY AND PRIVACY: Sunset Lakes is a gated community with an electronic key code access and surveillance system. The Lake House itself has its own electronic key code access system. Your code, which is unique to your stay, will be provided to you by email prior to the start of the stay. The Lake House has two hotel grade safes for the storage of your valuables. Both safes are large enough to store lap top computers. The Lake House backs onto the lake, not someone else's backyard. Visibility from the neighbour’s backyards is severely restricted by hedges, screens and the lake. The sliding doors to the pool area are all equipped with locks and alarms to keep the little ones safe.

MAINTENANCE: As owners we regularly inspect the villa to ensure that it continues to meet our high standards. The Lake House is fully cleaned by our professional staff between guest visits. Additional cleaning services may be requested if desired. If there is an issue with the villa during your stay our property manager is on call to assist you.

Getting around

Orlando is spread out over a very large area and the local bus service is not good. Renting a car is almost mandatory. For arranging transfer to and from the airport and making car rental arrangements we highly recommend this company: Florida Transport. They will pick you up at the airport and take you directly to your villa. They will make a stop to allow you to do some grocery shopping. They will also arrange for a car rental for you the following morning. This is an excellent service. If you prefer to rent a vehicle directly from a major car rental company we strongly suggest that you sign up with a loyalty program which allows you to go directly to the garage to collect your vehicle. The desks at the airport all all extremely slow and you can easily spend a hour waiting in line

The Lake House at Sunset Lakes was a great place to gather two families for our trip to Disney. The listing description was accurate and the layout was great for our group. The property was clean, well-maintained and we found everything we needed when making family meals. The owners provided great customer service and I would recommend this property to friends and/or relatives. Thank you!

This was a high quality villa with everything you could possibly want for a vacation, from the furnishings to the entertainment system provided with TV's/DVD's in all bedrooms. The pool area was very relaxing with sweeping views over the lake made for some relaxing downtime after exhaustive days at the parks. Booking and payment and all communication with Karen and Mike was easy and straightforward and I would not hesitate to book this or the other villa they have when visiting Florida again.

The Lake House was a great choice to stay! Everything went smooth from arrival till departure. We didn't have a single issue during our stay. The house was perfectly clean and very complete. It offered everything we needed. Also the location of this house is great, both for visiting the theme parks as well as to go out for dinner. Lots of restaurants are within a 5-10 minutes drive. The view over the lake is fantastic. We had a great time here, and definately recommend this house

What a wonderful place to put your feet up and relax!! This is the third time we have stayed at the Lake House and it never disappoints us. We came back this time with best friends who last came to Sunset Lakes in 2002. They loved the villa. Just wished we had had more time there to enjoy the pool etc., but Disney fulfilled many a day. The villa is in a beautiful setting overlooking sunset lake, spotlessly clean throughout and very well maintained. Booking was a dream, just so easy and efficient - Thank you. I would easily recommend the villa to family and friends. The villa is so close to the parks it makes for easy access what ever time of day, and when you are tired its a quick journey home. Visited water parks which was great. Played Crazy golf just down the road, and for good places to eat, try Texas Roadhouse - can't beat their steaks, Cheesecake Factory - make sure you leave space for the cheesecake, California Pizza Kitchen - choice to die for.

What more can be said but a great place, great owners and a place to re-visit

Reviewed 26 April 2016

My husband and I spent a delightful and relaxing two weeks at the Lake House this past January. The house was everything we wanted - very clean, well-equipped and roomy. It lived up to the positive reviews we had read before booking.

Since we enjoy cooking, we were delighted to see that the kitchen had every modern convenience - blender, microwave, coffeemaker, etc. All were top quality and worked perfectly. We had all the pots and pans, BBQ and baking equipment we could ask for. We particularly liked the granite countertops and high-end refrigerator and stove.

Everything in the house was upscale - even the salt and pepper . The spacious and elegant layout made it easy for us to entertain visiting friends either in the formal dining area or poolside.
The screened-in pool sparkled and, since it faced south, we could enjoy the sun all day long. In the evening, the pool lights made it even more inviting (and romantic).

A feature that we think might be unique to this quiet community is the abundance of bird life to be found around the small lake in front of the house...from giant sandhill cranes to snow-white egrets and tiny ducklings. We found this ever-changing view more interesting than the programs on TV (every room has a television and the living-room has a giant screen which brings in Netflix as well as cable).

We will definitely be repeating this experience. Thank you Karen and Mike!

Extremely well appointed villa with absolutely everything needed for a home-away-from-home vacation. ...the pictures don't do it justice!

Easily booked; excellent, prompt email communications with Karen and Mike throughout.

Well situated in quiet, gated community, but only about 2 miles from all amenities on Route 192 and a relatively easy drive to and from all things Disney. Peaceful at night.

Nice little play area close by in the community, ideal for young visitors.

Villa was very spacious; huge en-suite for main bedroom plus one other house bathroom with shower and two separate vanity units. Plenty of hot water available at all times.

Very good quality fixtures/fittings/furniture and appliances etc.

Comfortable beds: plenty of bedding, linen and house/swimming towels.

Good, decent depth pool. South facing. Nice and warm too. (We did pay for extra heating, given the time of our visit.)

Excellent information handbook in the villa. Very prompt service by maintenance company (Rob) for a minor door handle problem. He was very helpful and informative too on all things Villa/Disney and Florida.

We have visited Florida on many occasions but this was our first venture into villa vacationing..... I suspect it won't be the last. Would certainly strongly favour The Lake House again.

This is by far the best villa we have rented to date. It was very clean and exactly as described in the listing. The television in the living room was not working when we arrived. I called the maintenance company and they walked me through the steps to fix it. It only took a couple of minutes and the girl we spoke with could not have been nicer. We loved being able to go to the attractions in the morning and return to the villa for an afternoon by the pool and head back out for dinner and entertainment at night. We would highly recommend this property. We are planning on returning with our grandson in 2017 and hopefully we will be fortunate enough to be able to stay here again. Thank you Karen and Mike, you made this a very easy choice!

We have now stayed in all three properties that Karen & Mike rent out . We like to visit Florida every two years . I can confidently recommend any of these properties. The Lakehouse was rented for our most recent holiday . It was beautiful & clean on arrival . The villa is very well equipped. The location is wonderful , it was so nice & peaceful to sit outside looking over the lake , every morning & evening . The Disney parks, SeaWorld , & Universal Studios are a reasonably short drive away. Busch Gardens is about a two hour drive away but well worth visiting. Karen & Mike were very friendly & helpful with the booking process . I would highly recommend The Lakehouse ( and either of the other two villas) , we wouldn`t want to stay anywhere else.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very near Disneyworld and a short drive to Universal Studios. The rooms were very comfortable, we had everything we needed, and everything happened without a hitch. They had a beautiful kitchen and master bedroom/bathroom. But most of all, we enjoyed swimming in the heated pool after a hot day in the amusement park. We swam everyday! Loved the view of the lake, and my kids loved the visiting duck family every afternoon. Had a lovely time. Highly recommend!

From the moment we arrived we knew that this was an exceptional house in a lovely location. Every aspect of the house had been thought through to allow the occupier the comfiest most hassle free environment you could wish for. The beds were luxurious with anti allergy covers on all bedding. The kitchen was better equipped than our home kitchen. There were numerous thoughtful touches like children's games and books for all the family. As well as its close proximity to Disney the house is well positioned for golf, shopping malls and many other activities. After a day at play it is a wonderful calm home and environment to come back to. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home.

I can't begin to describe how terrific this home is. My husband and I brought our two children, ages 12 & 15, for a week in March.

We had a wonderful vacation and couldn't have asked for a better place to call home while we were in Orlando. Beautifully decorated and awesome atmosphere. We didn't want to leave!!!

Just returned from our week long holiday stay at The Lake House. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was! When you book sight unseen there's a certain reserve wondering if it will meet expectations. Well, it exceeds and I'm pretty particular!

The house is extremely well appointed and equipped (the photos are accurate). Karen's replies to my emails were incredibly prompt and she was quite wonderful to deal with.
As stated in other reviews, I was surprised by the proximity to Disney. During busy times it's a good idea to head to the parks early as traffic can be heavy) Restaurants and groceries are convenient.

From the moment I contacted Mike and Karen about this property it was a smooth process. They were extremely helpful and shared their experience of the area with a Florida novice.

The property is spotless and as described in the details is newly furnished and decorated top to bottom. Really comfortable beds, an abundance of towels and every kitchen gadget you would ever want or need whilst on holiday. The owners have thought of everything that makes this property a pleasure to go back to after a long day in the parks rather than just a "bolt hole".

The property is very near to Disney and an easy drive to Universal and Seaworld.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who wants that extra level of comfort and luxury.

I have just returned from an amazing Orlando vacation with my family and had to share the great accommodations we had – we felt like royalty in this villa!!

We were very lucky to come across this rental that has very recently been refinished. Everything regarding the house had been redone – all the floors, bathrooms, kitchen, furniture, even the exterior pool and landscaping. The house was pristine and gorgeous. The kitchen – AMAZING – beautiful appliances, well equipped and spacious (and much nicer that even my own kitchen!!). The bedrooms were beautiful and very spa like with gorgeous linens. Each bedroom is also equipped with a TV and bluray player which was really nice. We also had a room done up in “Mickey Mouse” bed linens for our boys and they loved it. It was a nice little surprise for them upon arrival.

The location is fabulous. The house is in a really nice gated community and super close to Disney World. I much preferred staying in this lovely house rather than on onsite resort as it gave us flexibility, space, and the option to prepare our own healthier food options. There are ample stored nearby for grocery shopping and eating out.

I would recommend this property to others – and in fact have done so numerous times since our return. I hope to return to this villa soon. Actually before we left my husband was asking when could we come back and why did we not book for 2 weeks instead of only 1!!
