We’re John and Agnes and we live in the Land of the Prince Bishops (in the north-east of England), where we have a media business. John is a native of Co Durham and Agnes hails from Ireland. We love to travel and have journeyed extensively across Europe as well as North America and South Africa.
We particularly enjoy our visits to the USA (we even got married here, in Colorado Springs) so we wanted to find somewhere special where we could return to year after year. We were delighted to find our perfect place in Sunset Villa at Lake Wilson and were thrilled to have the opportunity to buy it in 2013. It is such an exceptional and ultra comfortable home and we have upgraded it each year to transform a great vacation villa into a truly special one. We’re happy to share it with you and we hope that you will enjoy every minute of your stay in our enchanting home from home.
Our friendly management team is headed by Alan and Claire who are always on hand to help you settle in and ensure that you have everything you need for the perfect stay.
John Lucas purchased this villa in 2013
Our luxury villa is in Lake Wilson Preserve (a quiet and peaceful conservation area) and offers so much to everyone. With a lovely sunny SW-facing pool and an extended deck area plus its own exclusive pool bathroom, this is the ideal base for your dream vacation.
Prices are held for next year and we are now taking bookings. Make sure you book well in advance to get the stay times you really want - our calendar fills up very quickly with bookings from guests who love our home in Lake Wilson and want to return to it year after year. There just aren't enough weeks in the year to accommodate everyone so book early to avoid disappointment!
The local area is peaceful and beautifully maintained and a big plus is Sunset Villa's proximity to the I-4, giving you really easy access to all that mid-Florida has to offer.
The large pool set in an over-sized deck is a great place to socialize or just chill out at the end of a busy day. It has its own pool bathroom/changing room which you won't find in many other properties.
Sunset Villa is not overlooked at the front or rear and is private and quiet.
The sun terrace leading from the upstairs master bedroom is a great place to enjoy a sundowner while the sun sets behind the trees.
Once again a great stay at the Sunset Villa. From booking to arrival the process was seamless. As before the location cannot be faulted with easy access to all parks and restaurants. Cannot recommend enough, by far the best villa we have stayed in and nice to see that investment is made in upgrading the villa on each visit. 11 months to go before we return. Can't wait !!!
The villa is simply stunning. A real credit to its owners. Very spacious , well equipped and homely. The master bedroom is amazing , the bed is huge and very comfortable. Plenty of drawers and a walk in wardrobe for all your clothes. The master bedroom has a adjoining balcony which over looks the pool. Our children had their own bedrooms , again spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and the coffee machine is a bonus. The living room is beautiful , after walking around on hard floors and sand etc , it was a relief to sit back & relax with a lovely carpet under our feet. It feels so homely. The pool area is great. Large pool equipped with sun loungers and table & chairs. The pool room is ideal to dry off in, without running through the house with wet feet. Having a toilet and shower in there is handy too. Towels are provided along with hair dryers and hair straighteners. Huge tv with numerous amounts of channels. A x-box -handy for keeping the children entertained whilst packing) table tennis in the garage , along with 3 bikes. The location of the villa is superb with lots of amenities close by. The door alarm to the pool is very reassuring especially if you have young children. The touch screen house alarm system is also reassuring for the whole family. Disney is chaotic, fun and tireing but returning to the villa after a busy day is like a dream with pure style and comfort. John the owner is very helpful and is on hand at all times to answer any questions / queries. We have stayed in villas before but sunset villa is by far the greatest and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. You will not be disappointed. The villa is well maintained and very clean throughout.
We have just returned from a month's stay in this house and it really did become our home. Although we were only a family of three, the house would easily accommodate another family without feeling on top of each other. The pool and pool deck is a big bonus for this house together with the big outdoor bathroom - the kids really loved the pool lights!. All of the bedrooms were a good size but the master was something else! A lovely big room, one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in, a walk in wardrobe and the amazing balcony - if the trees over the road could be cut down, the sunsets would be magnificent!! Lots of drawer space too. Friends came to stay one night and they all commented on the comfort of the beds.
The house let in a lot of light too which on the rare occasion we were at home during the day was nice to have.
It was the little things that were really appreciated; plenty of house towels, plenty of pool towels, the sheets to lay on the hot sunbeds, a massive amount of coat hangers, the soaps in each bathroom, salt and pepper (!), the soft mattress protectors and pillow protectors not to mention the separate laundry room and the electric garage door!!
The location of this house really appealed and was borne out on arrival; the I4 is very close by and access to the 192 is quick and easy. There is also quick access to the local Publix and another one just a few minutes away at Champions Gate. On arrival the house was clean with decorations on the beds made from the towels!
Dealing with John was lovely and he didn't mind my odd questions! We even contacted him whilst we were in the house and the responses were really quick and helpful.
We would highly recommend this house to anyone, and when we return to Florida one day, we will be looking to rent this one again; the house literally has everything you need.
Superb house, real home from home with everything you could need. Pool for the hot days through to on-demand tele for during the odd storm, or later in the evening. There were even hair straighteners - not that we used them. Pool is an adequate size for a family, or just for the kids to splash around in. More than enough seating outside, which was lovely. Outside area of this house is worth particular mention; shower room by the pool was handy. Fan under the canopy outside was a life saver on hot days. Even an alarm on the door to prevent little people going outside without warning. Loved that seat covers / thin blankets were provided so that we did not have to sit on hot furniture or towels. SW facing pool area is perfect. Kids were able to swim in the morning with the shade from the house protecting them from the sun, whilst we had sun right until sunset in the evening. Pool was private due to just having next door neighbours (who we hardly saw) and the screening adds privacy.
Inside the house - four large bedrooms, of which we only used three, though technically two would have been sufficient. We are a family of four and the house was more than big enough for us. Could easily accommodate a family with 3-4 children and / or grandparents too. Kitchen well equiped with everything we could/would need. Laundry room was perfect for keeping on top of washing and ensured we always had clean towels etc. TVs in all bedrooms, though we never got round to using them. We only used the lounge tv which is a fantastic big flat screen. Our kids loved having on demand tv so were able to watch what they wanted, when they wanted. I watched a film one evening and got tired so recorded the rest of it to watch the following day...... Little things that made the stay even better.
Local Publix stocked everything we needed for our stay. We do like Publix, so this was handy. Quick access up to the 192 via toll or back roads, took us to most restaurants we enjoy. We only visited Universal parks from the house and the journey was never more than half an hour in fairly heavy traffic at times. Straight up the i4, it was very convenient. Pop down the i4 one junction takes you to a lovely out of town retail park, Denny's and a few other restaurants. We like these as a lot less busy than in the Disney and Universal areas.
Communication with the owner was fantastic. Felt very happy renting from these owners and will do so again given the opportunity.
The house itself is huge and easily accommodated us with plenty of room to spare. The standard is exceptionally high with highlights being the huge deck area, large pool (which we were never out of) Bathroom accessible from the pool (this was such a god send and saved wet feet being trailed through the house) and the balcony overlooking the pool area from the master bedroom (also absolutely huge!) - Nobody overlooking you at any point. The location/area is extremely quiet and safe so using the bikes provided is quite safe and fun. It's also really great for access to Disney and Universal (both only 15 mins), 192 (10 mins) and I4 (2 mins). There are plenty of shops nearby (Pubix, etc) and food outlets and also plenty of good golf courses. It was exceptionally clean and tidy throughout with many new features including a fantastic new touch pad alarm system giving all round security at all times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone. The last thing I would say is the owner (John) was a delight to deal with - He was great with us, providing detailed info before we left and was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout happy to help with any questions/queries you might have - A real nice guy. If visiting Florida again we certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
We arrived to Sunset Villa after a long days travelling and were instantly sure we had made the right choice for our first American adventure. Our party consisted of our 4 children (11, 9, 7 & 2), my father in law, my wife and I. The pictures do not do this villa justice, it is stunning!. My father in law was delighted with his bedroom downstairs, or as he liked to say his de-stressing zone! The kids shared the two rooms upstairs with the two single beds, there are large walk in wardrobes in both and ample drawer space for clothing. Our room, the master suite with en-suite all I can say is WOW! Such a large spacey room and the bed, the most comfortable bed I have ever lay on! The kitchen is huge with everything you could think of needing at hand. The provision of the Blue-ray/ home entertainment system which included Netflix meant we were able to sign in with our account giving the children time to catch up on some of their favourite programmes when they got a little too warm or tired. The pool area, where we spent most of our time, was amazing. The provision of the outdoor toilet/shower room was a godsend as it enabled us to keep the kids (and adults!) from running through the house when they needed to change etc. The covered area outside was a welcome relief from the sun and the fan is needed, even on the later evening whilst the adults were relaxing the fan helped greatly. We chose to have the pool heated and to be fair it was probably the right decision for the children as they were often it from 7 onwards! The property was spotless inside and out and the gardens immaculately maintained.
The owner John is a delight to deal with. He replied to my many questions answering every little query we had, and provided so many helpful tips that enabled us to have a very smooth first few days. The property manager Alan is also extremely helpful and sorted a late check out for us with no issues.
The property itself is extremely handy to all the attraction parks, I have never drove abroad so was fairly nervous about getting around, but after doing a few small test drives i found that 20 mins to most of the parks or less was no hassle at all.
The local supermarket, Publix, is around a 2 mins drive and I would recommend it for most of your day to day shopping. I would advise anyone to try their fresh subs, $7.50 and these will feed at least 2 people.
Our holiday was made by this homely and beautiful villa and we we will be returning next year.
