Our luxury 4 bedroom fully air-conditioned pool villa is in a fantastic location at Sunset Lakes, just off Highway 192 in the West Kissimmee area.
Our vacation getaway is truly a home from home, furnished to a high standard and with all the amenities you would expect, including a host of hi-tech features. This is a spacious and welcoming holiday destination within a secure gated community making an ideal destination for your vacation.
Sunset Lakes is a small, prestigious gated community and one of the closest to Orlando's main attractions. It is a mature development of detached pool homes surrounding 2 natural lakes, which attract many varieties of fish and wildlife. Relaxing in the peace and tranquility of this fabulous location it is hard to imagine that you are less than 10 minutes to the Disney parks. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoon relaxing by your own private pool and then return to the parks in minutes.
It also provides excellent access to the other attractions in the Orlando area, such as Seaworld and Universal Studios. Shops and restaurants are just a few minutes away and there are several high quality golf courses nearby. Easy access can be obtained onto Interstate 4 providing links to other parts of Florida including the Gulf Coast and Daytona Beach.
On site there is a communal pool & children’s play area, and if you bring your own rods you can fish in the well-stocked lake (catch and release). Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida.
Sunset Villa provides a spacious, light and airy open plan living area with two large comfortable sofas. The cool, white tiling has now been extended to include all living areas (the bedrooms are still carpeted). The living room overlooks the swimming pool and has a large sliding patio door allowing access onto the pool deck. There is a 46-inch flat screen TV with HD cable (including Starz and HBO channels) and an upscaling DVD player with a good selection of DVDs for all ages. Also we have a Sony Playstation 3 with the MOVE system, which allows you to play a selection of exciting games (including Harry Potter) using only the motion of your body. The PS3 will also play BluRay disks, a selection of which are provided. For musical entertainment there is a BOSE SoundDock so that you can enjoy your very own music from your iPod/iPhone.
The dining area has an large table and chairs seating up to 8 people (not many villas can accommodate all guests at the main table). There are a further two stools which can be used at the adjacent breakfast bar. The dining area has direct access to the lanai (shaded patio area with ceiling light/fan) via sliding doors. This area also houses the ‘home office’ corner – just bring your own laptop to be totally connected to the fast broadband wifi service, and connect wirelessly or by the provided cable to the laser printer – great for printing out your boarding cards before departure, spreadsheets or other documents. Two portable telephones are provided, with unlimited free calls to local and US national landlines.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with full size cooker, double door fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser, double sink with waste disposal, microwave oven, dishwasher, electric kettle, food mixer, blender and many other appliances. Everything you would need is here, whether putting together a simple salad or preparing a full multi course meal. The cupboards are well stocked with cutlery, crockery, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, serving dishes and lots of plastic ware for your outside dining by the pool.
Pool and Lanai
Three sets of patio doors lead directly onto the very private screened pool deck where you will find plenty of high quality sun loungers, tables, chairs and side tables to enjoy the Florida sunshine until late into the evening. There is a shaded lanai area that has an overhead fanlight and a table and chairs for outside dining. The pool can be heated upon request during the cooler months (normally $27 per day but special rates sometimes available) and is very private with mature hedges screening the views from both sides and to the rear. The pool has been completely resurfaced in January 2013 to bring back that sparkling blue colour to the water!
The Games Room, formerly a double garage, contains a professional, slate bed pool table and foosball/table soccer, and sofas for lounging. There is also a box with a selection of board games. For car parking, there is a full double driveway outside the garage, featuring a motion activated security light – plenty of room for two cars, side by side.
The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms with a layout that gives the ability for combined families / larger parties to holiday together but have their own private space. All bedrooms now feature Sony iPod/iPhone docking alarm radio clocks, so every room in the home now has the ability to charge/listen to your iPod/iPhone.
All the bedding is provided and the beds are made up with clean linen before you arrive. Extra bedding is provided should you need it. The villa has air-conditioning throughout, so will remain at a constant cool temperature that will make you feel comfortable even if the temperatures are on the up and up outside, and will also help towards giving you a good nights sleep.
The King master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, radio alarm clock and en-suite bathroom with wc, garden tub bath, large walk in shower cubicle and twin vanity units (and hairdryer). There is a walk-in closet off the bathroom with electronic safe and lots of hanging storage space. The master bedroom also has a ceiling fan, full length windows overlooking the pool, a 32 inch flat screen cable TV and upscaling DVD player. Both bedroom and en suite have wide door access, making them fully wheelchair accessible.
The Queen room has a queen size bed also with luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper, radio alarm clock, ceiling fan and en-suite shower room/wc. This bedroom also has a 32 inch flat screen cable TV and upscaling DVD player.
There are two further bedrooms with twin beds (also with luxurious non-allergenic mattress toppers), including a Disney themed room, both with ceiling fans, 26 inch flat screen cable TVs and upscaling DVD players. One has direct access to an en-suite shower room/wc. The other is just beside the third bathroom which has a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc.
The villa has a folding cot/playpen with bedding, a high chair, two lightweight strollers for those long days at the parks and a bed guard for the toddler who would like to be in a 'big' bed but isn't totally confident about being out of a cot.
Although we are 'on Disney's doorstep', we have tried to strike a balance in the decoration of our home. While the Disney bedroom and surrounding areas have lots of Disney links, we have kept the main living areas 'Disney-free' since not everyone who visits Orlando is 'Mouse-obsessed'. We hope our guests appreciate this approach.
Care for the Environment
We have made a start in our contribution to 'saving the planet', after realising that we have more than 60 light bulbs throughout the villa!
All bathroom lights (30 of them!) have now been changed to low energy bulbs, using a quarter of the electricity they used to use. They also produce less heat, making it more comfortable for guests and allowing the air conditioning to work more efficiently. As other bulbs throughout the home need replacing, low energy equivalents will be used.
New theme Park!
The new Florida Legoland theme park is now open at Winter Haven. Sunset Lakes is ideally placed, with travel to the park taking around 45 minutes.
