About Jorge and Sue Fernandes
We are Jorge and Sue Fernandes and we love to visit our home in Florida. We live in Stockport, which is in the north of England and work in the Hotel industry, running a family business. Our business takes up a lot of our time, but when we are not working we love to spend time with our two daughters and plan our Florida holidays. While in Florida we work hard to ensure that our home is a true 'home from home' and is somewhere we love to spend time with our family - we hope that you will too.
Jorge and Sue Fernandes purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Jorge and Sue Fernandes chose Four Corners
Our love affair with Florida started in 1994 on our first visit. From then on we were hooked, and were regular Hotel visitors until 2002 when we bought our dream home at Sunset Lakes. As soon as we stepped foot in our villa and looked over the lake views to the back we knew this was the one. The layout, location and size of our home just made so much sense to us, and gave us the space we needed to visit with our extended family and friends. Since then we have enjoyed many wonderful vacations with our growing family and we visit Sunset Lakes at least once a year. On every visit we spend a lot of time on each visit making sure that our home is kept to the highest standards. We are also lucky to have a great local management team.
What makes this Villa unique
Sunset Lakes is a rare gem amongst the large rental estates in the area. Set around two lakes the community has just 160 homes and is surrounded by conservation land, giving it a small, rural feel while being just a mile from the Highway 192 and the Disney parks beyond. What do we love about Villa Santa Cruz? Being close enough to the parks to come home to recharge our batteries before heading back out for more fun! Being able to sit in the sun while taking in the stunning views of Sunset Lake Being able to soak away our aches and pains in the hot tub. Listening to the local wildlife, and fishing in the Lake Our teenage daughter especially loves having her own huge Master suite and en-suite bathroom! We love having a little peace and quiet while the kids are enjoying themselves in the games room. But most of all, we enjoy the fact that we can all spend our vacation time together in a place that we love.

Villa in nice location.In need of some TLC.
Stayed at this villa February 2018.We had a lovely holiday.The layout of the villa was good and the pool was excellent.Clean and heating spot on.The cleanliness of the shower cubicles needs addressing I.e. black mould showing in places.There was thick dust under settee and in the downstairs Master Bedroom behind the blinds thick dust plus a dead lizard. Only three burners working on the cooker but that didn’t present a problem.We have stayed in many villas over the last 24 years and have always been contacted by the maintenance company after a few days to ask if everything was o.k.The only contact we had with them was to remind us of the checking out time.These issues may appear minor but we thought we should bring them to your notice.Reed/Walker Family.
Thank you for your review, we spend a lot of time making sure our home is spot on for our guests and appreciate constructive feedback such as this. We have passed your comments on to our local management team for their review and action.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Santa Cruz and hope that we can welcome you back again in the future.
Location is perfect
This home is very well maintained and in a perfect location. It is within 3 miles of dozens of restaurants and has quick and easy access to all of Disney. The pool and lakefront setting is perfect.
Very nice house, great layout, perfect location
A great villa house, one of the best we have stayed at over the years on our pilgrimage to Orlando and Disney. House has a great layout for a lot of people, pool and hot tub were very nice, perfect open floor plan for the kitchen and living area. Great location to Disney, about 10 minutes, Universal was 25min, shopping and dinning all around within 5 minutes. Being on the lake was a very cool touch, not to management fault the community was doing shore and lake work the whole time so there was quite a bit of noise early, 7am, on the days we were there but that is not their fault. One of the first ones we have stayed that had A/C in the game room/garage, a very nice touch. Be leery of the blinds in all the rooms, they have had some abuse and need to be extra careful opening them. Plenty of towels, dishes, cups and other kitchen supplies, only suggestion to management is maybe a few more or larger frying pans, one 10inch pan for a house that holds 8+ people was time consuming to cook breakfast each day. Just a great property, would recommend to anyone.
The house was very spacious and worked well for my family. We would rent it again.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The kitchen was stocked well with enough cooking pots and utensils. Some of the mattresses could be updated, they're getting a bit worn out but the bedding and towels were well stocked and clean. We enjoyed the games in the garage and walking around the nice quiet neighbourhood. The pool and hot tub were used lots by everyone! Thank you for sharing your home with my family! We had an unforgettable trip to Florida!
Beautiful property in the heart of everything!
We arrived literally in the middle of a hurricane so we requested early check in and they were very accommodating of the problems. Sue and Jorge were so nice and helpful with all of our questions!
We loved the house. It fit our family of ten perfectly and we never once felt crowded in the house. I don't know about the other beds in the house, but the upstairs master suite bed was a little uncomfortable with some divots but nothing we didn't get used to. The kitchen and living spaces had everything we needed and the game room was really great. We loved, loved, loved our stay.
I will say that we stayed in October during a hurricane and paid for pool heating and I'm glad we did. The water was very chilly until it was heated and even then, was still on the cooler side so I'd definitely recommend it if you aren't staying during summer because of the house blocking the sun for most of the day except late afternoon.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay. The property, neighborhood and surrounding areas are beautiful and extremely relaxing. We even saw some raccoons and squirrels and the kids thought that was great.
The location was also great. We were minutes away from Disney or where ever we wanted to go locally and it's situated near many highways, restaurants, and shops.
Mostly, we can't wait to go back again! It was the perfect space and balance for our family reunion vacation with lots to do, see and all the comforts of home!
The pictures do not do this house justice! We rented the house in June for a week. We brought our two sons and our granddaughter. We had family come and visit is and there was plenty of room for all of us inside and out! The house is close to all attractions, grocery stores, restaurants, shopping areas, and even Starbucks. We really enjoyed staying here and plan on coming back next year and staying here again! We loved it!
