Description of the Kissimmee vacation villa rental
Welcome to our villa, The Retreat by the Lake. The Retreat is a luxury lakeside rental villa in the Orlando Florida area just minutes from Disney World. The villa has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private south facing pool that overlooks a lake. It was fully renovated and refurnished in 2011. The Retreat 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. cormorants, bald eagles, turtles, fish and the occasional small alligator. In 2011 the Retreat 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 Retreat 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 Retreat has a games rooms where pool, darts and video 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 also an internet radio capable of bring news in from around the world. 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 Retreat 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 Retreat 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 Retreat has two hotel grade safes for the storage of your valuables. Both safes are large enough to store lap top computers. The Retreat 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 Retreat 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.
ABOUT OUR FEES: All rates listed include taxes and pool heat. There is a one-time cleaning fee of $107. Please be advised that a refundable damage security deposit will be required 1 month prior to your arrival date. All payments are handled through PayPal. PayPal accepts all major credit cards.
