About Fraser Hannah

I live in the countryside in the the heart of the English Lake District with my wife Diana and my Eclectus parrot.

Fraser Hannah purchased this house in 2004

Why Fraser Hannah chose Kissimmee

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it. It was the first one we looked at when we were looking to purchase a Disney vacation home.

I had my heart set on a lake view home and this one overlooks a conservation area so was not sure that I wanted to view it - and almost didn't.

The minute I walked in the door I knew it was the one for us. We looked at around a dozen homes just to be sure but nothing could touch this house. As for the lake view, I much prefer the privacy we have with this house.

What makes this house unique

Sunset Lakes is super close to Walt Disney World so you spend hardly any time in the car traveling to the parks. The community is also very quiet, but close to all the shops and restaurants you could want.

For us it is quite simply the perfect location for a Disney vacation.

Great house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home after our vacation. The house was excellent, in a gated community which means it's in a quiet location and easily accommodated 10 of us with room to spare. It's in a great location for visiting Disney and other attractions and has many restaurants and supermarkets close by.

I would definitely return next time I visit Florida.

The property was perfect for my family. It was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool everyday. Everything we needed was very close to the home.

Buyer Beware!

  • 2 of 5

Firstly – read the ‘conditions of rental’ prior to booking this villa. After we booked and paid our first instalment, we read the conditions that the owner sent to us only to find we were expected to wash all of the towels (otherwise the cost would be taken from our deposit) on departure. As the villa advertises it sleeps 14, that is quite a task to wash and dry before an 11am check out and not one that I feel is a reasonable request. When we asked the owner about this, on our return to the UK, he simply said ‘sorry, I haven’t updated the conditions in 14 years!’

On the surface, the villa appeared to be very pleasant, however, on closer inspection, we soon found problems.

The area surrounding the pool has many cracks and surface problems. There were no instructions on how to use the Jacuzzi. The barbeque was filthy despite a large sign saying we would be charged if it was left unclean for the next guests. There was a locking mechanism on the outside patio door which was ready to fall off. We had to fasten it with a tie clip (which we removed on our departure) as we were afraid it would break during our stay. Several of the blinds had no way of opening them as they had broken so we had to leave them shut. The freezer ice dispenser was broken. The furniture is very shabby, especially the sofa in the main living area and the kitchen units. I’m not sure where the ‘recently refurbished’ bit is as it all looks original from when the property was built in 1988. There were several stains on bedding which is abhorrent to me! After paying such a high price to stay here I expect the bedding to be spotless. The air conditioning in the master suite was very poor. It sounded like a howling, gale force wind coming through the bathroom yet, in the bedroom, it was extremely hot. The sink unit in the upstairs, shared bathroom was coming off the wall and drained very slowly, indicating a possible blockage. There was only one hairdryer to share – imagine up to 14 guests sharing one hairdryer! We had to buy another one to be able to manage.

Another problem that we encountered was with the calls from realtors wanting to show prospective buyers around the property. Perhaps this is why the property is ‘tired’ – it’s up for sale.

We contacted the owner on our return to the UK and, in a nutshell, his response was – too bad, you should have reported it all while you were there.

The good points – location is great and it’s nice having the nature reserve behind the pool.

Owner's Response: While we try exceptionally hard to give guests a perfect vacation, sometimes though there are issue - when guests contact us they are always rectified quickly. Many of the items listed by the guest are small things that occur during normal wear and tear that could easily have been fixed - had we been informed. In an ideal world these would be picked up when the house is serviced between guests but sometimes things get missed. Neither myself or my managers were contacted by the guest during their stay - had we been all the issue would have been dealt with. Our booking conditions were somewhat misleading in terms of what owners are expected to do upon leaving. We ask that the house is left tidy and that some of the bedding be put in the machines, to assist the cleaners. Clearly we don’t expect everything to be done, had the guest asked about this we would of course been able to put their mind at ease. There was undoubtedly an issue with the bedding being stained, something that should not have happened and for that I sincerely apologies. I have made it abundantly clear to my managers that it is just not acceptable. The house was fully renovated 3 / 4 years ago, which included replacing the sofa in the main living area. The blinds throughout the house were replaced in February this year - the house is well maintained. The house is for sale as a rental property with all future bookings, the guests were contacted by my manager only once to request access for a viewing. The realtor does not have the house number and always arranges viewings through my manager. I replied to all the guests concerns in full when she contacted me post stay, sadly there was little I could do to correct the situation once she was home. Sadly no matter what my response this guest would not have been happy unless she received a substantial refund, something she made very clear in all her post stay communications. As we were no opportunity to assess the validity of or address the guests concerns during their stay this is something we felt unable to do.

Sun,Fun and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a lovely gated area which is quiet yet homely, traffic is minimal to say the least and the estate feels really safe if you enjoy walking, The neighbours were friendly. The villa is spacious, really comfortable and well maintained with a really nice swimming pool and sunbathing area. Our grandchildren would have spent all their time there. Villa backs onto a conservation area so is not overlooked except by a nice mixture of wildlife and butterflies which once again fascinated the children. Evenings around the pool were restful and quiet. The interior of the villa was comfortably furnished, the cooking area was well equipped and the bathrooms, mainly shower rooms were clean and tidy. The location of this villa could not have been better, very close to all amenities and restaurants as well as the Disney theme parks and downtown KIssimmee. The owners very kindly provided short cuts to the parks thus avoiding periods of heavy traffic and saving a great deal of time as well as useful tips on eating out and where to grab a bargain. Given the opportunity It is a place that I would have no hestation in staying again and I would strongly recommend it to friends and family.

Nice setting

  • 4 of 5

This would have been a 5 star, however, there were some items that were not up to par. Most were quickly addressed and we did enjoy the rest of our vacation. The pool area was very nice as it is private w/no houses behind the home and hedges next to the neighbors on either side.

Location

Car: necessary

Sunset Lakes is perfectly located close to all the major Florida attractions and is only 4 miles from Walt Disney World. For guests staying at our home we provide details of a shortcut / back way into Disney that avoids Highway 192 which can become very busy at times, and saves guests from wasting time sitting in traffic.

.

The area is exceptionally well serviced by restaurants with the following being no more than a two or three minute drive from the community.

.

Friday’s

Outback Steak House

Olive Garden

Carrabba’s Italian Grill

Red Lobster

Longhorn Steak House

Houlihan’s

Orlando Ale House

Cracker Barrel

Giordano’s

Buffalo Wild Wings

Applebee’s

Bahama Breeze

.

Not to mention the fast food chains such as MacDonald’s, Subway, KFC, and Dominoes etc.

.

For those who love to shop the community is within easy reach of several larges shopping areas such as the Florida Mall, Mall at Millennia, the Festival Bay Mall and the Orlando Premium Outlets.

.

There is a Target Superstore around three miles away and the nearest Walmart is approximately five miles away, with Winn-Dixie and Publics being a couple of miles from the house.

.

Central Florida has numerous golf courses all within easy reach of Sunset Lakes, you could almost stay for a month, play a round of golf every day and never play the same course twice.

.

If you manage to find yourself with any energy after your days at the parks you may want to book one of the evening attractions Orlando has to offer such as.

.

The Blue Man Group at Universal – they are hilarious

Cirque du Soleil at Downtown Disney

Arabian Nights

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Pirates Dinner Adventure

Sluth’s Mystery Dinner Show

.

What ever you want from your Florida vacation Sunset Lakes is the perfect base for your stay in the sunshine state.
