Hi Dawn

We had a fabulous holiday thank you.

Temperature and time difference has been a real shock to the system.

Thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa Sunset Dream. The villa looked exactly like the photos. The sunsets we saw from the pool were spectacular! Your home was very spacious for 7 of us. Beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. The details you provided enabling us to find and access the villa were spot on. We did have to contact the management company a couple of times, and their response was immediate. (Rob was very helpful) Animal Kingdom was literally a 10 minute drive away. Would recommend Villa Sunset Dream 100%. Hopefully we will be able to return in the future.
The only downside was that we were so busy every day we didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked to relax in the villa and make use of the pool/hot tub. Next time we'll have to book for 3 weeks.

Hi Dawn
We have enjoyed another great holiday in your lovely villa. It’s a real home from home, with large washing machine and separate drier, dishwasher etc. We’ve loved chilling out beside the pool, and have enjoyed some gorgeous sunsets over the lake.
The television is good too - we saw plenty of interesting American shows to keep our interest when required.
My wife has a balance disorder nowadays, and she was really touched that you went to the trouble of organising a shower stool for her. We had planned to buy a cheap plastic patio chair for the purpose but there was no need because of your kindness. She was also able to make use of the bed safety bar which we found in the wardrobe.
Thank you again for allowing us to use your beautiful home, and taking the trouble to make life easier for my wife too.
John Ramsay - October 2019



   
Thank you for a most wonderful stay in your villa.

This is our second visit to 'Villa Sunset Dream' and it is just such a lovely villa, from its facilities, location and the amazing sunsets over the lake.

The customer service from Dawn and Alan is exceptional and there is a great folder in the villa full of very helpful information.

We used the pool and hot tub so much more on this visit and just enjoyed relaxing in the outside area which is so peaceful.

Once again thank you for everything and letting us stay at your home, and it was a pleasure to meet you as well. Would definitely recommend your villa to friends/Family.

We foundn the villa to be in excellent condition and very clean when we arrived. I noticed quite a few upgrades from the last time we visited. The standard of furnishing and equipment levels are excellent, showing a care in attention to detail that seperates this villa from most others.

Frost Family  May/Junel 2019



   
Absolutely perfect. Our family have just spent 2 weeks in this beautiful spacious property which was very clean and well maintained. The Disney bedroom and provision of toys and character outfits went down a storm with our 2 grandchildren. The kitchen was well equipped for anyone who wanted to prepare food and eat at home. Apart from having a barbecue on one of our "rest days" we ate out most of the time and found an abundance of good restaurants nearby. The Longhorn Steak house is definitely a must. The property was in an ideal location for quick access to the theme parks and the information provided at the property gave us many useful tips about the surrounding area.  The view from the master bedroom balcony was amazing and it was gorgeous to sit out there and watch the beautiful sunsets. The outside area along with the fabulous pool and hot tub were amazing especially after a long day at the theme parks. The pool and hot tub were maintained as promised each Friday. During our stay we did have to contact the maintenance team on one occasion it was the morning after we had arrived and we did not have any hot water. There were very clear instructions on how to contact the team and the problem was dealt with immediately by 2 lovely polite and friendly guys. It was a quick fix as the fuse had tripped following a thunder storm the previous night. Dawn the owner of the property provided excellent customer service and promptly answered any queries we had prior to our holiday. Overall this property was up and beyond our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others. We would like to say a big thank you to Dawn for the use of her property which allowed us as a family to enjoy a wonderful holiday.

The Beswick Family May 2019


 
The property was immaculate. Even the wonderful pictures didn’t do it justice. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay in Orlando. Dawn was excellent to deal with and they provided wonderful information for both the property and things to do in the area. We have recommended the place to everyone on out return as we would have no doubt anyone visiting would be impressed. It’s close to all the parks and attractions. Seriously couldn’t recommend all aspects of our stay enough. We will definitely return.

Villa Sunset Dream - An amazing villa   
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Thanks a lot Dawn and Alan for letting us stay in your house!
We were two families in total 9 persons staying in this fantastic villa for 5 nights. Sunset Dream really lived up to all the high expectations we had when we arrived. A really nice, clean and well maintained property that had everything you could wish for. Kids( and parents) just loved the pool and hot tub and the layout of the villa was just perfect for two families.
Everything was very professional handled by Dawn and Alan Murray from the first contact until we left the villa. Very clear arrival instructions and file full of great information in the villa. Very easy to get in touch with Dawn and quick response to any questions at all time.
Looking forward to our next visit at this villa......

The Hamel Family February 2019


Wonderful property!   
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have nothing but good things to say about this owner and property! The owner was easy to reach whenever I had a question and she had a binder full of helpful information in the house. The house itself is really well cared for -- the bathrooms are spacious and the downstairs master was really comfy. Even thought the couch was nice for a nap! The pool and the hot tub were fantastic and in good working condition. No complaints whatsoever. Loved, loved, loved it and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about booking here :)

Thank you so much!  We loved your home and it will forever hold a special place in our hearts-- we got engaged during this trip so it was extra special :)

Thanks again!

Guest Wolpert x 2 February 2019



We found the villa perfect for our stay and large enough to accommodate two families

The villa was very clean upon arrival and the instructions and directions we had received from the owners were very clear and made things easy. The villa contains almost everything that you will require for your holiday and is ideally situated for access to Disney, Kissimmee and Celebration village

The management company were efficient and responded to reset the safe code and top up pool within 2 hours of calling them.

Contact with the owner throughout the booking process was quick and efficient and we appreciated the tips that you provided for vehicle hire and park tickets

So peaceful


We had a brilliant time in Florida and the villa was absolutely superb. Thank you very much for being so professional and warm in all our correspondence with you, and for allowing us to share such a beautiful villa. The instructions you sent beforehand were excellent and made life very easy.
 
We did use your management company whilst there and they were also very professional and responsive.
 
Many thanks again

Many thanks from all the Poole family.September 2018


Villa was in exceptionally good condition, all equipment was in good
working order inside and out. Standard of housekeeping found to be
excellent.
 
 There were no items or appliances that we felt we needed.

Would highly recommend villa to friends and would definitely return
ourselves.
Booking process was simple. Dawn has been great to deal with.

Villa Sunset Dream was everything we had hoped for and more! As a part of 5 adults we were keen to book a villa that had enough space for all of us and we certainly chose the right one, Sunset Dream is huge!

Each bedroom was very spacious and the two that had en-suites were amazing, we all said that we've never seen bathrooms so big.

The villa was very clean and tidy with a lovely open plan design downstairs for the kitchen (which was really well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc.), living area and hallway. The large TV is a smart TV that has all the modern on demand apps installed which was great for the occasional evenings where we didn't feel like going out.

The highlight of the villa though for us (and i'm sure for most guests) was the pool! It was so much bigger than what we expected and you could easily swim in it, rather than just splash around.

Even when all five of us got in there was still ample room, we really can't pick any faults with the pool and outside dining area - it was all perfect :)

Overall we can't praise this villa enough, we've been to Florida a number of times now but this was our first time staying in a villa...it certainly won't be our last though! We would struggle to think of a reason why we wouldn't book one of Dawn's villa's next time either.

They are in a superb location on a lovely complex, Animal Kingdom is the closest Disney Park which is just 10 minutes away (without traffic).

Thank you Dawn for letting us stay in your lovely villa and we hope to visit again soon!

Many thanks from all the Upstone family. May 4-18 2018


Great house with everything you need!
My family of 7 (4 adults, 3 kids) just returned from a wonderful stay at the Sunset Villa. The house itself was very clean and had absolutely everything that you need. Great living room/kitchen area that was very open with plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms were all roomy and beds were comfortable.

We had asked for the pool heat to be on and it was definitely warm. I have stayed at previous places and requested the same, however the pool still seemed a little chilly....not this time! Lots of patio room for lounging as well as outdoor dining.

There is a nice little lake behind the house that provides lovely views. It's nice to not be starring at another house directly behind you. The kids did some fishing and managed to catch one small fish.

Dawn and the management company were absolutely delightful to deal with. Dawn was always extremely quick to reply to any questions and was always accommodating. We had to call the management company on our first night there when we couldn't get the pool/hot tub to turn on. It was a simple timer that can be adjusted depending on when you want to use the pool the most. The management company came to the house within 10 minutes of our phone call, and were terrific and friendly.

Great house, excellent location       
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Thanks so much Dawn for sharing your lovely home with us. We really enjoyed our recent stay . The home is ideally suited for Disney and other Orlando attractions. Unlike many rental homes this one really is close to everything you need. The beds are very comfortable, the outdoor area is lovely with ample seating, overlooking a pretty little lake. It's a very peaceful, restful environment. The grill was new for our stay. Another thing that sets this home apart - the pool really is heated to a wonderful temperature. This doesn't always happen at other rental homes. Thank you again. Everything was wonderful.

The Gregg Family December 2017




Lovely villa, nicely maintained shame there were only two of us to utilize all the goodies you provide.
unfortunately both my husband and I were unable to use the hot tub or swimming pool because of heavy colds, however pool furniture and view of the lake compensated for this. Ideal location for all the Disney parks, shopping and restaurants! My husband enjoyed fishing the lake and eventually landed some fish, only  hiccup was with phone which was promptly corrected by George and his son who came round within minutes, also adding some brilliant fishing tips!!
Thank you for letting us share your villa.
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Dawn,

So we're all packed up and ready to carry on our adventure, just wanted to say a huge thank you for our amazing stay in your spectacular home, it really has been the best place we have stayed. Everything we would need is here, and more, and the kids have said they would love to come back, and our youngest has told his sister he's staying in the big bed next time!!.. They really have loved every minute and the pool has been well used!.. -thanks again for everything and great we met you on your stay too, we've been looking out but never yet seen the resident bear 🐻!! (thankfully!!)..

Best regards Gemma, Barry, Olivia and Charlie October 2017 xx


Hi Again Dawn

Feeling almost back to normal now and reality is slowly returning after an amazing holiday which is partly down to your beautiful villa.
 We have been using sunset lakes for the last 15 yrs staying in various different villas along the way and we have to say that your villa, sunset dream, has been the best. The fixtures, furnishings, equipment and layout made it more than a home from home for our party of 7. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and there was some nice touches left to help us settle in. The highlight of any villa for us is the pool area and your perfectly positioned large pool deck with plenty of seating and outdoor furniture made this the most popular area. The multicoloured pool lights meant the kids and adults could use the pool late at night.
We would also like to mention your management team who we had a lovely chat with during their routine maintenance  of the grounds and pool.
We will for the foreseeable future always return to sunset lakes as a base for our Florida holiday and would without hesitation look to see if you had avaliability of your villa.
Thanks again
Mark. Nicola and family - October 2017


Thank you for 2 amazing weeks in your lovely home. It was the perfect size for us as 8 adults need to be able to find their own space.

Everything was immaculately clean and the beds and sofas were so comfortable, not that we spent much time in them as we were so busy. The bathrooms were great, light and spacious and having 4 showers was a total God send.

 There was nothing we needed that was not provided and we were really sad when it was time to leave. The pool and hot tub were spot on temperature wise, the sunsets were incredible viewed from the balcony and the pool area and the layout of house lent itself brilliantly to a group. 

I have stayed in 5 other villas prior to this visit, most have been delightful but i would totally recommend anyone needing 4 – 5 bedrooms to stay in your villa and I am hoping we will be coming back also. Sunset Lakes is a lovely community, quiet after the madness of the parks and extremely picturesque.

Additionally I would like to thank you for all your assistance with our booking, everything was arranged with ease and all the details we needed readily available – I just wish we could come back now
. 😊

Sunset over the lake


Hi Dawn

I just thought I’d drop you an email to say what a lovely time we all had whilst staying at your amazingly homely villa!

My daughter was upset that she had to leave and wanted to stay there permanently!!
The villa had everything we could possibly need

The location of the villa was brilliant, not only was it a lovely quiet estate (we kept an eye out for the alligator, we think we spotted it a few times in the water but didn’t see it out and about!) but it was really close to the parks too - we used the shortcut and this saved a massive amount of time. We slotted in a few lazy days by the pool and shopping days at the malls / outlet centres. The folder on the table which advises you of the best days to visit certain parks was a massive help! 3 weeks was definitely the right amount of time to go away for, we got through everything on the itinerary i created :)

The sea screamer that you suggested was amazing, we managed to get right at the back and see the dolphins from a few feet away, we spent the whole day there on the beach which was lovely!

Thank you so much for providing such lovely accommodation, I will be definitely recommending your villas to family and friends - I’d certainly re-book if we were to ever come back!

Many thanks

The villa was very clean and everything worked beautifully.

Your home has everything you could possibly need and more - the only thing we missed were egg cups.

We would definitely stay at your villa again - this was the fifth time we have been to Florida and stayed in villas, but this was by far the best. Will recommend to friends.

The booking process was very efficient, very quick responses to our many questions

Thank you so much for the best family holiday ever. Your home is amazing!

Hi Dawn,

It was fantastic. We really felt like we had fell on our feet coming to your villa. It ticked all the boxes in so many ways, great pool and hot tub, beautiful sunset views, all afternoon and evening sun and minutes from a shopping centre. The villa itself was spacious and suited our needs perfectly. I would definitely use again.

Very clean and a wonderful location so close to shops, west facing, gets all afternoon and evening sun, amazing sunsets. We really felt like we had fell on our feet picking this villa. I promise you will not be disappointed if you chose to stay here. We would definitely stay again.

The Shields Family April 2017



The house was very clean and beautiful. The pool was wonderful! The pool heat was defiantly worth it! I have 2 small children (4 and 2) and the pool was their favorite part! They loved the bedroom with all the Disney dolls! So much was provided for the kids that I didn't even realize! There were toys and all kinds of amenities for them (strollers, high chairs, car seat, pack and plays) it was very nice! The door leading to the pool was child proof which was such a relief. I really didnt have to worry about anything! If you are looking for a way to experience Disney (which was only 10-15 minutes from the house) this is the way to go! The owner answered all my questions in timely responses and was very accommodating!!!! Cannot wait to plan another trip!

So peaceful


Hi Dawn
               We thoroughly enjoyed all the villa had to offer. My father particularly enjoyed teaching his grandsons how to fish in the lake. And I of course loved the hot tub at the end of a day in the theme parks. The locations was fab. The booking process was simple and personable. The owners are friendly and helpful and always quick to respond to my questions. We really didn't want to leave.

Beautiful Home in a great neighbourhood, very close to all amenities, including Disney

We really enjoyed our time at the house. We stayed for two weeks, which really gave us time to get settled and relax. The pool and hot tub were great, kids played in the pool daily. Best part was that the kids could go swimming whenever they wanted, not on someone else's schedule or with other people around them. House was great, lots of space and all things provided. We did not feel like we were missing anything. We would definitely recommend this for any family or two families to stay at, lots of room.

Hi Dawn,
Sorry that it has taken us this long to return this form to you, but we would like to thank you and Alan for the opportunity to rent your lovely home. We had such a fantastic vacation. It was truly a memorable holiday for us!

We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave!

Sean (our Management Company) responded very quickly, even though we didnt expect it and the shower drained more quickly after he treated it.
All the best,

Hi Dawn

We have had a wonderful holiday and were delighted with your beautiful villa. We found it to be the nicest we have stayed in and in the best location. I will return the questionnaire to you shortly.
Thank you once again

Extremely clean and fresh throughout the villa including the external areas like the pool and hot tub.   Everything was working except the lights in the pool but not sure if we just couldn't figure it out or if they were actually not working.

We were more than happy with the appliances available, we certainly didn't expect to find things such as straighteners etc so don't feel there is anything we can think of to add.

Honestly we can't wait to come back! We have already recommended your villa to friends and family.


You have a gem of a villa, it's spacious and well presented, we felt very well looked after and enjoyed coming back to the villa after a long day at the parks to watch Netflix or relax in the pool.  The views over the lake are incredible, the resort itself is beautiful and everyone we met were incredibly friendly. It's situated in the perfect location with the supermarket round the corner, liquor store, Harley Davidson and Disney literally 5-10 minutes away (the short cut recommended by yourselves was perfect).  We can't wait to return in a couple years.

The McClean Family October 2016



Hi Dawn,

Thanks for getting in touch. We had an amazing holiday thank you. The villa had everything we needed. It really was like staying in someone else's home - everything we needed was there. The kids loved their Disney bedroom and the games room was fantastic. Everything was clean and working, and the villa was so spacious. The pool and hot tub were used everyday - such a lovely view over the lake. Your information was so straight forward to follow, and the folders at the villa gave us so many useful tips. If we return to Orlando we would definitely stay at your villa again - a lovely villa set in a quiet and safe community in a fantastic location!

Thanks for everything,

Very clean and well equipped villa


Just a note to thank you for your help and information in regards to your villa, we had a wonderful holiday. The information pack you sent to us was excellent and the binders in the villa were fantastic.
Once again thank you and we are hoping to book with you again soom

The Carey Family August 2016



Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely villa - we all had a great time! It was perfect for my niece and nephew with their room and the pool, plus all us adults loved relaxing by the pool or in the hot tub and we had our fair share of nice meals out on the outside table watching the sun go down. Luckily the weather was kind to us on the whole so we were able to enjoy the villa to the max.
Your villa was ideal for our family group and we will definitely be looking to go there again in hopefully the not too distant future!

The rental surpassed our expectations


The service was outstanding. The owners were always courteous and prompt with their responses and the management team quickly and efficiently took care of the few issues we had. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset over the lake from our enclosed pool and hot tub. The home was clean, full of amenities (even books, games and movies) and really spacious ( 5 bedrooms, several bathrooms, big kitchen, a game room, etc.) We also liked the property's safety features, such as the house alarm, door alarm by the pool and being in a gated community. It was in an excellent location-- only 5 minutes from Disney World and only minutes from several stores and restaurants. There were 7 adults and 2 children in our group. Everyone loved this place!

The Richter Family May 2016



We spent two weeks at Villa Sunset Dream in April. It was everything we hoped it to be. This villa is set in a quiet gated community only 10 minutes from the Disney theme parks & is in close proximity to various restaurants & shops. The villa is large & well equipped & has been maintained to a high standard. The little ones loved the Disney themed bedroom & the accommodation is spacious for those days when you want to chill out away from the parks. The games room was a big hit with us all, as well as the pool & hot tub. I would highly recommend this villa & the view from the pool overlooking the lake was stunning.

Everything was great! And clean!

Issue regarding bug/pool canopy felt wind blew corner out. Contacted yourselves who got in touch with management company. Prompt response. Great guy who came, no problems or issues raised.

Would you stay at our home again in the future or recommend it to
friends or family?
Definitely!!!! Villa great!!! Location Great!!!

Any other comments/How did you find the booking process?
Dawn you were a delight. Totally patient with my million questions. Thank you!

Hi Dawn
We have just returned from villa Sunset Dream and wanted to let you know what a great time we all had.We have travelled to Florida many times in the past and your villa is the nicest property we have ever stayed in.
Everything was perfect including the pool heating which was at the right temp from day one!The hot tub is great and the view from the pool beautiful.
Sean from the management company was really helpful and polite .Overall a fabulous holiday and when we return we would love to stay at the villa again.
Thanks once again

The Lucas Family January 2016




We stayed in the sunset dream between 13/11/15 and 27/11/15. We were a group of 5 adults and twin 6 month old boys. The villa itself was out of this world. It had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We had stayed at Disney and universal hotels the week before and just didn't feel relaxed at all. As soon as we made our way through the gates of the sunset lakes community we started to relax. The villa is in a beautiful location. The lake view was stunning and so lovely to wake up to everyday. We have been coming to Orlando for years but this was the first time we stayed in a villa. It is unlikely that we will ever be able to enjoy a hotel stay again!! The service provided by Dawn is the best I have ever received. We can't wait to return to this gorgeous villa and would highly recommend staying here to anyone that is considering visiting Orlando.

Hi Dawn,

Everything worked, eveything was though of, even coasters. We would stay again and recommend to friends (I wanted to stay longer). Booking was very easy. All your info was very helpful. We normally stay on Universal Blvd, so this area was new to us. Everything was easy to find. The area was so peaceful.

So peaceful


Hi Dawn

Absolutely love this house! Certainly the nicest we have stayed in and believe me we have stayed in a few! Pity we aren't spending more time here as seen to be racing up to Lake Mary quite often.

The Malcher Family Oct 2015


Hi Dawn,

Beautiful villa with all the comforts you could need and ideal for a family. Resort was great for the kids with a playground and fishing which they loved and it really is only 4 miles from Disney which was very convenient.
We would not think twice about booking this villa again and highly recommend it. We have stayed in many villas this was by far the best. 

The Burke Family June 2015


Hi Dawn

Just like to say we had a wonderful time at your villa.
The photographs don't do it justice as it feels far more spacious once you're living in it.
The facilities are excellent - the kitchen is well equipped, the utility area was very useful and there were plenty of fresh towels. Everything was very clean and well prepared when we arrived.
If you're visiting the Parks, it's in a perfect location, taking 15 to 30 minutes to get anywhere. A large supermarket and other shops and restaurants are just five minutes drive
By the way did you know you have a small alligator in the lake. Awesome.
Thank you so much.We are hoping to book the villa again in the near future.

The Lynch Family May 2015


Hi Dawn,

Thanks for the welcome home email.  We  contacted Norma early on re the waste disposal and hot  tub and she solved both problems over the phone.

Would definitely stay again and would recommend to friends and family. Our only regret is that we didn't have as much time as we would have liked to just chill at the villa because we were attempting to see all the parks ( a punishing schedule considering the heat). As you know our group covered a wide age group and everyone enjoyed the villa, the youngsters really loved the pool and the games room and were asking when we were coming back (starting saving !) The whole booking process was smooth and trouble free and the information provided made for easy access to the shops and attractions. Thank you very much for your help and I hope we will be contacting you again in the near future.

Hi Dawn - happy new year


I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the villa over xmas and new year - it suited us all perfectly and we all totally enjoyed it - we crammed a lot into our time there especially the second week when our kids came out. Loved it was so close to Disney and used your shortcut which was great .
