About the property


Before you read the description of our villa we invite you to view a list of 10 items that we think are important to consider when choosing a villa. We hope you use this list as a reference guide, even if you do not select Sunset Retreat:

NB: If you contact us via email, please provide a phone number where we can reach you.

1. Community Location – Is the community near your ultimate destination or will you be wasting precious time stuck in traffic? Sometimes just a few miles further away can lead to much longer delays and less time at attractions.

2. Security – Is the community private, gated or does it provide security guards? Does the villa have security, fire and pool alarms? Does the villa provide a safe for valuables?

3. Villa Location – Is the villa located close to community amenities such as a lake, dock, community pool and playground? Is the villa located on a main traffic road of the community or a private area?

4. South Facing Pool – Is the pool facing the daytime sun or will you find yourself in the dark and chasing the sun in the morning and late afternoon? Does the pool have a heater for fall and winter months?

5. Pool Area – Does the pool area provide enough covered space to enjoy the pool without being directly in the sun? Is their ample pool furniture to accommodate all the guests?

6. Air Conditioned Games Room – Is the games room air conditioned or will you find yourself unable to use the games room due to oppressive heat? Most games rooms are located in converted garages.

7. Space – Does the villa provide ample space for everyone? Does the kitchen provide enough space for stocking supplies and sharing meal preparation while still being able to provide an open and interactive environment?

8. Privacy – Does the villa provide ample space for your family or families to have their privacy? Will late nighters impact those who go to bed early?

9. Communication – Does the villa have high speed wireless internet service (WIFI)? Does the villa provide 24/7 property management support for any emergencies? Are there large flat screen HD TV’s with no HD service? True HD TV must be separately purchased from a cable supplier via convertor box and then attached to an HD TV.

10. Finally – Remember that bells and whistles, fancy and pizzazz are nice and impressive but your comfort and enjoyment will be what is important. After all, the villa will truly become “your home away from home”.

Our home, with its South Facing Lake View Pool, is privately situated at the end of a Cul-de-sac in Sunset Lakes, one of Orlando’s most prestigious gated communities.

Inside we have a spacious Family Room, with Entertainment Center, and also a formal Living Room. Having two lounges provides an extra benefit to large families or groups enjoying Sunset Retreat. The Family Room is the place to get together to watch Cable TV, or maybe a DVD either rented or one from our small selection of films. All of our TV's were upgraded to flat screen and Large Screen Family Room HD TV has true HD cable service with premium channels. Also, we have High Speed Cable Wireless Internet (WIFI). A desk is provided for all your planning needs.

The Breakfast Nook is surrounded by glass with a patio door that leads to the spacious pool area. With its day long sunshine it is a delightful place to sit with your morning coffee and look out at the Stunning Lake View.

We have a fully equipped Laundry Room with Washer, Dryer, Sink, Iron and Ironing Board.

Our 28' x 14' Pool is South Facing, enjoying day long sunshine and a stunning lake view. We have just resurfaced the pool, added a safety bar, a tropical rock waterfall and expanded the entire pool area. The larger of the two lanais is a perfect place for alfresco dining under the cooling breeze of the ceiling fan and enjoying the sound of the feature fountain. Enjoy an evening drink at your own Tiki Bar situated in the second lanai.

Our fantastic Games Room is AIR CONDITIONED for your comfort. We stress this becuase many villas have beautiful games rooms but are too hot to enjoy without Air Conditioning. It has an 8' x 4' Slate Bed Pool Table, Table Football (Foosball), Air Hockey, TV and Playstation 2. For those who prefer to watch the action we have put in a Bar Table, Card Table and Chairs. Below our entertainment unit in the Family Room we have a selection of board games for young and old.

Luxurious American King Size Bed, Dresser, Bedside Cabinets, Cable TV with DVD, Radio Alarm & Ceiling Fan. Adjoining is the elegant en-suite bathroom with corner bath, large shower cubicle, his & her vanity basins, a separate toilet closet and a large Walk in Wardrobe.

The adjoining bathroom has a Large Shower Cublicle, vanity basin and toilet. The special en-suite option feature allows your private bathroom to be easily shared with other guest (on a busy morning rushing to the parks) by opening and closing two doors.

About Norma Burke

Our family and our extended family in the UK has owned this villa for over 10 years but it has been more then just an income rental. Unlike many owners who rent as an income investment, we spend several months at the villa ourselves.

As seasonal snow birds, we keep the property maintained not just for our guests but, also, for ourselves. We fell in love with Sunset Lakes and Sunset Retreat many years ago and hope your family will too.

Why Norma Burke chose Sunset Lakes

There are many outlined in the description but LOCATION is very key as the traffic going to Disney World seems to escalate each year. Our community is very close to the park entrance and is gated. Our villa is located near the main gate at the end of a cul-de-sac with little or no traffic.

What makes this villa unique

We are not just owners, we are extended users of our villa. All of our guests complete a 10 question survey directly to us so that we can consider their input for correction or upgrade. Many upgrades have resulted from this feedback.

Our grandchildren sold us on the idea of Princess and Disney twin bedrooms.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a fabulous villa. It's spacious with plenty of living space. What I really loved was the fantastic pool area. I really liked the community being gated too and it's at the most prestigious end of Kissimmee which couldn't be closer to Disney.

It was so lovely to come back and unwind after a busy day in such a fabulous villa. We ate in a couple of nights and the kitchen had literally everything we needed. Not that you have to eat in as there are plenty of great restaurants nearby, we particularly liked Applebees & Millers Ale House.

The children got a lot of use out of the games room, which was a blessing for us and after the theme parks we needed a rest :o)

Would heartily recommend and would go back in a heartbeat, fabulous holiday thanks.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Sunset Retreat multiple times over the years and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The villa is located in the most convenient area for Disney and unlike most villas that claim they are within 10 mins of Disney this one actually is. The villa is furnished to a high standard and has plenty of room for groups to be together but also have their own space. It's fantastically well equipped with everything you need and has a lovely view from the pool area, where we spend most of our time. We particularly liked the TV on the lanai, perfect for relaxing afternoons.

There is a games room for the kids (both young and old alike) and the TV has the best selection of channels I've seen! There is wi-fi too which is great to stay connected and also check out what to do.

Dealing with Gerard & Norma is extremely simple and nothing is too much trouble, they go out of their way to make it feel like a home from home and it shows.

Villa with it all!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee' and I had the pleasure of staying at this great Florida Villa. We enjoyed everything about this rental. It is very spacious and a wonderful place to stay with your family or combined families being it has 5 bedrooms. Game room will be a plus for the kids or even the adults as we enjoyed it as well. Kitchen was well stocked. It is a gated Community so you feel very safe there. The location could not have been better....close and within a few minutes to the Disney Parks, shopping, and restaurants. What we loved most was coming back after a day at the Parks and being able to go for a swim in their beautiful pool. It was also great lounging by the pool just reading a book. My fiancee' loved the lake and did some fishing while we were there. He did catch a few fish. It also is lovely to just go for a walk around the lake and community. Do not hesitate to rent this beautiful villa with all of its great amenities. You will not be disappointed. We will be back.

Great family vacation property

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at this property on January 30, 2015 . It was in very neat and in a clean state. Everything was in very good working condition. It is in a very safe gated community and nice to take a walk around the community. Can also go over to the lake and watch the sunset or if you like to fish there are nice big bass in the lake waiting to be caught. If you are a photographer there are many types of wildlife and plants to photograph. This is a great family rental vacation home plus it is easy access to all the Disney Resorts and restaurants . Excellent , and I will return again..
