Being much more than a hotel room, there is a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, dishwasher, microwave and a full washer and dryer in the utility room, along with ironing equipment. Not to mention the little luxuries in life such as a coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and blender.
If you fancy making a meal and having a cosy night in there is enough seating around the dining table for 6 people.
Our beautiful 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom third floor penthouse sleeps 6 people ..... and no noisy footsteps from above! All bedrooms have views over the lake, a flat screen TV with Cable and DVD players and all have enormous closets. There is a King Bedroom with En Suite Bathroom, a Queen Bedroom which shares a large bathroom with the Twin Bedroom where the bathroom is also En Suite. There are plenty of bath and hand towels for you to use so you don't have to bring your own, and there are even some beach towels for you to take down to the pool areas.
The moment you enter Legacy Dunes Resort you'll become enveloped in a tropical setting with the beautiful waters and fountains. There are two gorgeous pools in the grounds. The main pool is heated and will treat your senses to a Caribbean vacation, with it's zero entry walk-in which is great for the little ones. There are plenty of sun loungers and cabanas if you need to spend a little time out of the Florida sunshine. The smaller pool is more formal and perfect if you want a little peace and quiet.
If you're feeling little more active there is an air conditioned fitness centre and plenty to do outdoors. There's a floodlit tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball, golf practice cage, golf chipping area and a great playground for the kids situated by the quieter pool, overlooking the lake. Please note there are no elevators at Legacy Dunes.
The Kissimmee area is filled with activities, parks, and night life for people of all ages. Legacy Dunes is close to Walt Disney World, the “Happiest Place on Earth”!

The theme parks Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure as well as Sea World are also nearby. If shopping is your idea of vacation bliss, we offer easy access to the Orlando Premium Outlet, Millennium Mall, and the Florida Mall. Of course, there is also the nightlife: Disney Springs, Universal Studios City Walk, Downtown and Old Town Kissimmee or the infamous International Drive area.

Mark and Vicky Lord purchased this condo in 2014
We love spending our family holidays in Orlando and especially at Legacy Dunes Resort, which has received the Certificate of Exellence in 2015 for the Fourth Year Running. In fact we loved it at Lakeside Penthouse so much, when it came up for sale we just had to make it our second home. Here's to hoping that you enjoy it just as much as we do!
Why should you stay at Lakeside Penthouse?
Well it's really quite simple. It has it all!
We fell in love with the the views around the perfectly manicured resort. Especially the views from our private screened balcony or sitting in our living area overlooking the lake, while we relax in the evening. There's also the the two pools, floodlit tennis court, games for the kids, golf practice net and lovely nature walks around the gardens and lakes. All this along with the fact that it's only a ten minute drive to the theme parks, makes it the perfect home away from home.
It is a wonderful place that has everything you need and more. Would recommend it to everyone!
The three bedroom spacious apartment (condo) is perfectly priced and positioned for all the major theme parks (15-30 minute drive). It has a real home from home feel which is just what you need after a long day of fun on your feet. You will need to get some shopping such as washing liquid and extra toilet paper (Super Target or Publix) are close by and sell everything you need. You can find some condiments in the pantry, I'm sure we all leave things for the next guests! Thanks to the owners for opening up their home to others.
Fantastic well equipped condo with everything we needed.
Great location for Disney (especially if you take the 429 and avoid the busy 192)
The pool area was great and the kids loved it
Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
The condo was perfect for our stay in Florida.
Here's a list of positives
-equipped with most essentials
-convenient location, close to parks, restaurants, shopping
-quiet, nice pool, and workout facility
-washer and dryer very convenient
-tvs in every room
Areas for improvement
-master king bed mattress worn, and not very comfortable
-no room darkening blinds, difficult to sleep in
-unable to control air-condition and sometimes too warm inside, although fans and windows helped (but we come from a cool climate and not used to Florida heat)
-lots of towels, but not enough wash cloths
-carpet a bit worn and stained, but condo was cleaned fairly well upon arrival
-third floor was nice, but no elevator, only stairs (which didn't hurt us), but definitely difficult for elderly or disabled
These areas of improvement are only listed as suggestions. All in all, we had a great time, and we're very pleased with the stay. We would definitely stay there again.
Nice place, very helpful and well maintained.
You should book your next stay there when you're around!!
Really enjoyed it!!!
We had a brilliant 12 night day, the apartment has plenty of room and clean. It's located close to Disney and shops, we will definitely book the next time we are in Orlando.
Legacy Dunes is located 6 miles west of the magical Disney World resort and only a short 10 minute drive away. The resorts location along with the gated security, clubhouse and community facilities make it the perfect place to stay on your Disney vacation. Only minutes away from all the excitement, yet set in beautiful tranquil surroundings.
What is there left to be said about the amazing World of Walt Disney? Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot Centre, along with two water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon). As if that isn't enough there is also Universal's two stunning theme parks... Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios including the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
When you've finished at the parks and worked up a big appetite, Highway 192 is home to over 100 restaurants. From steak houses such as Longhorn Steakhouse and Logan's Roadhouse to seafood eateries like Joe's Crab Shack and Bonefish Grill. There are also all of the staples in the restaurant industry such as Chili's, Cracker Barrel, Carrabba's, Olive Garden, Ponderosa and Golden Corral. Not to mention all the diners and fast food restaurants available to chose from.
All this literally within minutes of the gorgeous perfectly manicured setting of Legacy Dunes.
