Just returned from Florida and had a fabulous time at Dawn Murray’s Villa .

The location is central and perfectly situated very near to Disney and Universal Studios, and nearby supermarkets.

The villa itself, a perfect combination of comfort and a home from home with lovely warm pool and inviting hot tub to relax in .

We had a fabulous time and remember watching the beautiful sunsets over the lake. Thank you so much

Jobling Family Feb/Mar 2024

Hi Dawn
We were a party of 3 adults and stayed for 12 nights during January 2024. There were many things we liked about this holiday home, the location was perfect being 5 minutes drive from the 192 with all of its restaurants and shops. Walmart 5 minutes, Publix 8 minutes, one of our favourite restaurants Cracker Barrel, 6 minutes. The shopping complex with Target, Sketchers, TJ Max to name a few and numerous places to eat right in your doorstep.

The villa itself has two superb master suites, probably the best showers I have ever had in a holiday home, what seemed to be a newly fitted kitchen which was very well equipped and a great games room. The pool was very warm for the first week and then unfortunately following 2 days of extremely low temperatures it was too cold for us, however it recovered enough for a dip on our last da, not much you can do against nature. We had one problem with the hot tub and Rob from the management company was quickly in the scene, he was very personable and reassuring. The hot tub was a lovely constant temperature but was showing some signs of age. Air con, not that we needed it much worked well, as did the heating which we needed on several mornings. I would definitely recommend this villa and would stay again.

Our family absolutely loved our stay at the villa, that much that we extended our stay whilst here, we did not want to leave.

Dawn was available to speak to and very helpful with any questions that we had.

The management company were easy to get hold of when there was an issue with the pool heating and sorted it within a couple of hours.

Watching the sunset over the lake was our favourite time of day after a busy day in the theme parks.

We would love to return to the villa again in the future, it was so close to Disney and all local amenities.

Hi Dawn
Hi Dawn We had a fabulous holiday in your beautiful villa. You have thought of absolutely everything, down to the milk and snacks available on arrival which was so welcome, we loved our stay there, it was so comfortable and relaxing. Your villa was a huge part of our enjoyment on a very special family holiday.

Villa Sunrise Dream is a fabulous villa. It is immaculate, so very well equipped (the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need) and it was lovely coming back after a busy day at the parks to relax in the hot tub and swimming pool.

The location was perfect for us. Communication was excellent.

During our stay we were very impressed by the quick response from the Management Team on a couple of small issues we had that were dealt with right away. We would highly recommend this villa. .

Hi Dawn

Having returned from our 3 week holiday, I can say just how delighted we all were with the villa.

You have thought of everything and your support to us throughout our stay is testimony to how villa rental should be done.

The hot tub and swimming pool become used every day to recover from the heat and all the walking. The estate is so peaceful yet so close to everything I am not sure anything else could be wanted.

Just a massive thanks and I am sure to let some friends know who are planning on a visit

kind regards The Paxtons (July 2023)

We have just returned home from a 2 week stay in Sunrise Dream and I could not recommend it highly enough!

From when we first enquired through to booking, through to arriving and staying at the villa, Dawn made the whole process extremely easy and seamless. She explained everything throughly, offered helpful advice and answered any questions I had really quickly.

The villa was immaculate, every little thing you could possibly need is thought of. The gated community where it is situated is lovely and really quiet, the view from the Villa on to the lake is amazing, especially the sunsets.

We are a family of 5 and the highlight for my 3 boys was definitely the pool which they went in every morning before we went to the parks. Having a lovely well equipped kitchen to make our meals in when we wanted made a real difference too and meant we were able to save some dollars by not having to eat out every evening.

A massive range of Shops/bars/restaurants are right on the doorstep, literally a 5 minute drive, and from leaving the villa to being parked inside the magic kingdom car park took us 15 mins tops, less most days.

I would not hesitate to book with Dawn again, we had a fantastic holiday and we absolutely loved our stay at Sunrise Dream.

Hi Dawn,

We absolutely loved the holiday and your fabulous villa! Kay (partner) was very upset to have to leave on Saturday morning and was asking me to extend the stay! The villa was perfect for us 6, everything we wished for and more. The view over the lake especially at Sunset was just amazing. Kids loved like really loved the pool and hot tub. Pool was great size as normally photos can be deceiving but yours was great. We all enjoyed the games room, air hockey was better than you find in some amusements here in UK.

We will certainly recommend your villa to friends & work colleagues if they are visiting Orlando. We can't thank you enough and hopefully we get to visit again as location was perfect.

Graham and Kay Hickey February 2023

Hi Dawn
Good Morning. We had the best stay at your beautiful Villa Sunrise Dream on the wonderful Sunset Lakes. It has surpassed our previous villa stays. You have ensured everything is covered down to pool towels, scissors and we even saw hair straighteners in the cupboard!! It was such a lovely bit of luxury to return to after the hectic park days. The pool was amazing, we enjoyed lots of sunsets looking over the lake from it! The beds were incredible!!! We can tell you put your heart and soul into this Villa and it truly shows. We are already missing it!

The next time we return to Florida this Villa will be the first I check availability for. Thank you.

Hi Dawn,

We had a lovely stay, just about adjusting back! Your villa was a pleasure to stay in, great location, well equipped, clean and comfortable. We would definitely return. We had a lovely holiday and appreciated the touch of the Christmas tree being available. The games room was great and the kids enjoyed it. Also really appreciate the speed at which the washing machine issue was rectified. We will definitely be in touch soon about available date for Christmas 2023.

Hi Dawn
Hi Dawn Just wanted to let you know that our stay at Villa Sunrise Dream was perfect. The location, pool, games room and space made our villa time one of the most enjoyable parts of our holiday. The new sofa and cable TV are brilliant and we had many movie nights, which was great fun. Many thanks Shaun

Hi Dawn,
I must apologise too as I did not give you any feedback following our return to the UK. All I can say was the villa was fantastic. Everything was as described and having the swimming pool at our back door made our youngest's holiday. She loved being able to dip in as soon as we returned home from days out. We felt safe and secure in the gated community and had a couple of taxi rides from Billy who was exceptionally friendly and helpful too

We have been telling everyone what a fabulous time we had and that your villa was outstanding and the location just could not have been better. Thank you for everything and we will certainly be in touch when we do another villa holiday to Florida. All in all though if I was rating your villa and location we would give a firm 10 out of 10. Its was amazing. Thank you once again, Linda xx

Stunning sunsets

Hi Dawn
We all loved the house. I would say of the 12 plus villas we have rented it was the best!

Extremely well equipped - it had everything we needed and more. We like the position of Sunset Lakes and have stayed there before. Pool heating was great and ensured that our grandchild could enjoy the pool for as long as he wanted. his property was everything we hoped for and more. Very spacious - the 2 master suites are great if two families are staying together. Bathrooms are all very well appointed and immaculate. The kitchen was lovely and incredibly well supplied with everything you could need.
A very professionally presented villa which I would thoroughly recommend. Communication with the friendly owners was excellent.” Thanks again for the very good communication in the run up to our renting your villa. We had a great holiday and the family all loved the villa. I just need to recover from 4 weeks away now! .

Just back from the most amazing 2 weeks at villa Sunrise Dream at Sunset Lakes. Fantastic location close to all the Disney Parks and not far from Universal.  There was 4 adults and 3 children and lots of space in the villa to meet all our needs.  Large king size rooms with massive bathrooms, children loved their rooms and we all loved the family space with open plan kitchen living room with all the facilities required including games, tv and games consoles. Pool area was well used and enjoyed by all.  Would highly recommend this Villa and gave us lots of special memories to take home.  Thank you Dawn for an amazing stay.

Hi Dawn
We had a wonderful time in your home thank you. We appreciated the ease of the coded lock to enter. We loved the space - plenty of room for our teenagers to spread out and huge en-suite bathrooms. But the best thing was the pool overlooking the beautiful lake - so tranquil having breakfast watching the turtles pop up occasionally. The pool was a lovely temperature. Missing it already!
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Hi Dawn
Thoroughly enjoyed staying in your lovely home. Everything you could need and more. We spent most of our time, when we were in, round the pool area even in the evenings when it was dark. Very convenient for the Disney theme parks and close to some lovely restaurants. We usually stay further east off the 192, around the Medieval Times area, so this gave us the opportunity to try new places to eat.
The weather was very kind to us, apart from getting drenched the last night. That’s Florida for you.
Many thanks

Nice place, plenty of room. Perfect pool temp. The hot tub was key in picking this home and it was pretty terrific. Easy instructions getting us into the home and thru our week.

Murrell Family May 2022

We have never been to Florida as a family and this house was a great place to stay to make it amazing! The kids swam all the time and we enjoyed the space of the house for it to be more quiet when needed. I highly recommend this house to stay and enjoy your time in Florida!

 Gerbers Family April 2022


Hey Dawn,
Thanks for the welcome, the villa was amazing, it’s by far the best one we have stayed in on all our trips to Florida, it had everything we needed and more.  We had a great time and the villa was the perfect retreat after a busy day in the parks.  I think so many people decided to go to Florida after Covid-19 & the spring break of course.  
Thanks for letting us stay.

Beecroft Family March 2022

The house was beautiful and we enjoyed everything about our stay there. The property owners even left a Christmas tree and decorations that we were able to put up for our children for Christmas Day while we were there. The kids' closets were filled with princess dresses, Star Wars costumes and other awesome dress-up clothes and Disney stuffed animals. We were close to Disney and anything else we needed. They had strollers we could take to Disney, games, books -- they had basically thought of everything! We would love to return to this property in the future!

Jolley Family July 2021


We come to Florida each summer to visit family. This home is gorgeous. We were pleased with all the rooms. The pool was always warm. The hot tub was super hot when we arrived but after leaving the cover off for a few hours, it cooled down. They boys were surprised to find fishing poles and spent many hours catching fish in the pond. The pool was cleaned on Friday (as stated in the agreement). They discovered that a pipe was broken but communicated to us when it would be fixed and how soon after that we could go into the pool. It was fixed promptly---we actually didn't even know they were out there fixing it. This subdivision is close enough to Target, Walmart and many restaurants (with back ways to get there to avoid busy intersections) but also, DoorDash had no problem finding us when we ordered out. All in all, a great stay. We enjoyed it very much.

Newport Family June 2021

After a last minute cancelation of a previous property during Memorial Day weekend we found this beautiful home. We weren't disappointed. The home looked just like the pictures online. I had direct communication with property owner and didn't require assistance from property management during my 5 day stay.

Chenault Family May/June 2021

The house was amazing and the pool was great!!!! The house was very clean and a great pick for our week in Florida!

Amazing vacation
This place is everything as advertised. We did have to call the property manager when we got there because the pool heater wasn't working but it was fixed in 1 day and the property manager was very polite and easy to work with. All amenities were high end. Overall 10 out of 10 would book this place again for another vacation.

This place is AMAZING!! Upon arrival, everything was clean and so much more beautiful in person then in the pictures. Dawn always responded if i had any questions immediately, and so did anyone from management. All the instructions were inside the welcome book and it was all very easy to follow. Although i did come to visit the theme parks, i was always excited to come back to the house after lol!! It was me and my best friend that stayed here and on our last day we enjoyed a nice BBQ session and that hot tub i never got out of lol!! I will definitely be staying here again next time on my next trip to Orlando. Thank you Dawn and to the management company as well for making my birthday a wonderful memorable one!!

W Diaz March 2021


We loved this house! It was just the place we were looking for to enjoy our week in sunny Orlando! SO close to Disney, restaurants and shopping. We spent almost all of our time in the pool and enjoyed the comforts of the lanai and deck. Highly recommend!

Javoroski Family February 2021

The house was perfect for our two families to stay together. We had a group of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids, and the double king suite was perfect for our families. The home was clean, welcoming, and in a great neighborhood. The only negative thing we could say had nothing to do with the home itself. We were able to hear the neighbors partying loudly during our kids bedtime hours, but switched them to different bedrooms in the front of the home and were able to get them to sleep. We loved the pool, and it was perfect for our family and kids. The seating areas by the pool were perfect, the large table we used for meals so they didn't drag water inside the home while swimming, and the lounging chairs were amazing for us to hang out on while they swam. We would for sure stay here again when traveling with another family.

Ridgeway Family February 2021

An amazing house.We really enjoyed our stay. The house is clean and everybody is friendly.
I would strongly recommend this place to anybody who would like to visit Disney.

It was so spacious and airy 2 huge master suites with huge en-suites the queen room and 2 twin rooms were very spacious beautiful bathrooms and a fantastic kitchen with everything you could possibly need . Extra large washing machine and drier .The very large pool where you could swim properly not just dipping was so warm overlooking the lake (plenty of catch and release fishing) the villa is maybe a 5 minute drive to many many restaurants and shops and Wal-Mart 10 minutes away so central for everything 10 minutes to Disney nobody could be disappointed with this beautiful villa if you like birds and wildlife this is the place. Thank you Dawn for sharing your lovely piece of American heaven with us can’t wait to book for next year.

We really enjoyed our stay in your superb villa. The villa was very clean, spacious and well equipped. The two master bedrooms were huge and the ensuite bathrooms were amazing with fantastic showers. The villa location was ideal being within a 5 minute drive of a number of restaurants and supermarkets. If we return to Orlando I wouldn't hesitate in booking this villa again.

We absolutely loved our 2 week stay in Sunrise dreams! The villa is so spacious and clean and had everything we needed during our stay. We had a 5 month old baby who was well catered for and our 8 year old liked the games room. The pool area was fantastic and a bonus with the separate hot tub. The views from the pool over the lake were lovely, especially the sunsets and seeing the hot air balloons coming over in the early morning. We hope to come back one day for another wonderful holiday. Thank you!

Hi Dawn, We would just like to say how much we enjoyed staying in your villa "Sunrise Dream". It was amazing, everything we needed and more. The kids loved the pool and played nearly every day, morning and night. It is such a peaceful setting and a great view overlooking the lake. It was great to come back to on a night after a long day in the park. We are home now, tired and happy but also sad our American adventure is over but we could, and hope to, do it again. Thanks for letting us stay at your Villa, we have been to Florida many many times but this is the best accomodation we have ever had. Thanks again, Tommy & Brenda

The Croll Family September 2019

Another fantastic stay at one of Dawn's villas! This year at Sunrise Dream.

The villa has spotless upon arrival and we loved the newly fitted kitchens and bathrooms.

Outside the pool area was brilliant, we spent almost every minute at the villa here. The pool is a fantastic size for being able to actually swim, not just splash around!
We didn't use the games room this time but it looked like a great room for families to use on rainy days.

Every bedroom was very clean and comfortable (two with HUGE en-suites) and we all loved the massive beds!

This is our second stay in one of Dawn's villas and we all agreed this time that you really can't get closer to Disney unless you're in a hotel.
The location of Sunset Lakes is superb, literally 10 minutes to Animal Kingdom down the US-192 and only another 10mins to Magic Kingdom etc. The main international airport is only 30 minutes away too (without traffic).

When choosing a villa in Orlando we will always choose Villa Sunrise Dream or Villa Sunset Dream if they are available.

Thank you Dawn for another brilliant stay.

 My family have recently stayed at this magnificent Villa in Florida which is located approximately 10 minutes from Disney World. The Villa was absolutely fantastic. The owner had carefully thought of items that you could have possibly imiginged you would need on vacation. The Villa was exceptionally clean with beautiful furnishings throughout. The Villa had a beautiful pool and hot tub overlooking a wonderful lake where you could see wildlife and a fantastic sunset while drinking a glass of wine or a cocktail.

Thank you so much Dawn for allowing us to share your exceptionally beautiful villa. I would definitely recommend your villa to family and friends. Hopefully we will return someday to experience the wonderful ambiance of your villa and views

The villa was very spacious, very clean and well maintained. It is very close to disney, all the main restaurants such as olive garden, i hop, cracker barrel etc and shops including Wal-Mart target and publix. The pool area is private and sunset lakes is very quiet and peaceful. Owners have thought of everything to make this a home from home. We would highly recommend this villa for your holiday. The owner Dawn was a pleasure to deal with.

Kavanagh Family April 2019

 Lovely spacious homely villa, perfect for our 3 generation family holiday. Everything was exactly as described on website and it was very well equipped. Situated over looking the lake, we enjoyed many stunning sunsets and the location was perfect for visiting the Parks, shopping or eating out. All communications with Dawn were very professional yet personal and we would recommend the villa and hopefully return one day.

The Dalton Family March 2019

Hi Dawn,

Sorry for the delayed response.  We had a wonderful vacation .

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Sunrise Dream very much.  We love the location on the lake.  Most of my family members love to fish right outside the villa on the lake.
The villa was very well stocked.  I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't provided.  Even though the weather got cool the second half of our stay, we were still able to get in some time relaxing in the pool and hot tub.
We find both of your villas to be top notch and a bit above the others we have stayed in :).  Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to stay in one of them again sometime in the future!

I received notice that you have initiated the return of our security deposit.  Thank you for your quick action on this.

Egbert Family November 2018

 "We have been going to Florida for over a decade and this is by far the best villa that we have stayed in. Beautiful decor all around the home, both huge bathrooms have been completely refurbished and they are stunning and there is a hot tub outside close to the 30 ft swimming pool. Villa owners could not be more helpful and friendly (they even left a bottle of prosecco in the fridge on our arrival to celebrate our twin girls 21st birthday the day before ❤️). Villa is very close to the 192 so perfectly situated for parks like Animal Kingdom and lots of fantastic restaurants. Faultless

What can I say except brilliant.Everything about this beautiful villa is first class.Its fully equipped with all you need to live very comfortably for your holiday.The location is great to get to Disney and all the surrounding attractions.The pool and hot tub were spotless and very welcoming after a full day walking round the parks.One thing I do have to mention are the wonderful maintenance people Matt and Gordon,they were straight over to help us when we had a problem with the safe which they sorted.They bobbed in to check on the pool and asked if we needed any help with anything.They even sorted a taxi out for us and recommended local places to eat.We couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay and will hopefully visit again very soon.

The Bloomfield Family -

Hi Dawn,

Our booking period was nearly two years which reflected our wish to secure a family holiday in the beautiful villa Sunrise Dream. Our keen interest was fuelled by what turned out to be a very accurate, informative and attractive web advertisement together with several very caring but professional communications with Dawn, the owner in the UK. After this long period, and a transatlantic flight we were delighted that the experience  of using the villa  continued this trend. An initial 'WOW' impression continued to be followed by two weeks of realising the full potential of this beautiful property which fully lived up to the 'Dream' in its name.

The villa was well equipped in every aspect. A folder provided the initial information for a quick start to the holiday, of particular note being times and directions to supermarkets, restaurants, the Parks and general housekeeping tips for the villa. The local knowledge of travel short cuts was of particular help in avoiding traffic and saving time. Overall the villa provided everything needed to maintain our comfort and entertainment for the two weeks including comfortable and well appointed beds; a very serviceable laundry; a large well appointed deck area with warm pool, hot tub and BBQ, all of which we used even from 7am in the morning !! despite the sun rise being to the front of the house.The kitchen was serviceably equipped with a large fridge/freezer, cooker, dishwasher, wine cooler and microwave, as well as a varied range of crockery, glassware and cooking utensils.

The location of the villa was an extremely important asset. Its site position was towards the end of an attractive lake where we enjoyed several beautiful sunsets as well as the local bird life. Whilst the lake was beautiful to the rear of the property, there was tropical parkland to the front making it a quiet overall location. The villa's geographic location is a strong asset. Even after a couple of days it's easy link to connecting roads allowed us to dispense with sat nav and have rapid access to local supermarkets, restaurants, the Parks and the wider Highway network. A Sherberth Road shortcut given by Dawn was a superb example of accessing the nearest Animal Kingdom park in under 10 minutes. The rest were not much further, maximising enjoyment time rather than time driving.

Our experiences at Villa Sunrise Dream added great value to our Orlando holiday such that we would aim to return here at a future date and would recommend other families to give due consideration to do likewise, without fear of disappointment.
Mc Crickard Family November 2017

Stunning sunsets

We stayed at Sunrise Dreams in September 2017 with Hurricane Irma appearing right in the middle.  We did not stray from the villa for 3 whole days due to the hurricane and curfews so we really had to like our enforced lockdown.
And we did!
A very spacious, comfortable and attractive home with gorgeous bedrooms, every mod con and a delightful pool.  There is a Games Room, and a play station, movies and CDs.  It was clean and tidy, and the maintenance men Gordon and Matt live just down the road so were able to help us out when the aircon caused a problem and even answered a call at 11.30 at night with no qualms. Free long distance/international calls was a huge plus for us.
The owner, Dawn, in the U.K., communicated with us regularly during the hurricane, anxious to know we were alright.  Our flight home was cancelled three times and she let us stay 3 extra nights until we could get home.
The area is gated and very quiet.  Most of the houses surround an attractive lake with some interesting birds to see, such as cranes and herons.
The nearest shopping and restaurants are only about a mile away on easy back roads. It is really close to Disney and only half an hour from Universal. Oh and check out the new friendly and enjoyable winery near Formosa Gardens too.
We would definitely recommend Sunrise Dreams.
Michael, Kay, Lucy & Jenny McManus - September 2017

Hi Dawn,

Many Thanks, we had a great holiday and yes the jet lag has now gone unfortunately so has the suntan!

We found the villa was everything we hoped for, a great location, very comfortable and well equipped, the games room, hot tub, pool and bbq were enjoyed by all. The lanai is a very peaceful pleasant setting.

There was no clothes airer which would have been handy for clothes you can't tumble dry.

Best Regards,

May/June 2017

(A clothes airer is now purchased!!)

The house was very presentable and clean upon arrival. All appliances appeared to be in working order.

Some our party experienced an issue with the alarm upon arriving back at the villa one day. The alarm company called promptly and advised that the management company would attend the following day to correct. Everything appeared well upon our return from the parks the next day, so it was presumably corrected without issue.

There were more than enough provisions within the house. The children enjoyed the games room but soon favoured the pool as the only place they wanted to be after a day out. The adults were grateful for the dishwasher and laundry facilities (there are some things one simply doesn’t have a holiday from!).

From start to finish, Dawn was terrific to deal with. No question was too small (and I did have the habit of asking random questions!). Dawn responded to all emails promptly, and was always friendly and efficient. The villa information provided was extremely helpful beforehand and during the stay. Being told about the back roads via Sherberth Road proved indispensable and shaved a lot of time off our travelling (we even used it to cut the corner off US192/I4 when travelling up to Universal Studios). The lakeside location was delightful. We all enjoyed spotting the wildlife, which, during our stay, included a pair of Sandhill cranes, black vultures, turtles, plenty of little green anoles and a couple of sightings of swallow-tailed kites (thankfully, no spiders!). Thank you very much for letting us stay at your home. We very much hope to stay again in the future.

Hi Dawn

Perfect as seen on pics.
We spent a wonderful time in your beautiful villa and the whole family loved it so much.

We're not yet home though... after leaving your villa, we moved to the gulfcoast and we spend this week in a house in Cape Coral (also nice but not as cosy as yours... And it has no PlayStation, which is important for my son)

We really appreciated your helpful information. By mail beforehand and also the written ones in your villa.
We can recommend your address to all of our friends and we will be back one day...

Actually we are still in Florida. We are at St Augustine for today and tomorrow we head back to Orlando and Universal until Saturday when we fly home. We had no issues and it is a lovely home. We're looking forward to our stay in your other house next door in February when we will have a lot more time to spend there.

Good Morning Dawn,
Well what can we say, we had an amazing time in Florida and the house was truly more than what we expected. The views onto the lake r stunning and my boys spendt many evening out fishing and even caught  a fish which they were delighted. Your home is very spacious and couldn’t fault it at all. We would highly recommend your home and wouldn’t hesitate to return to it in the future. Many Thanks for all your help and hopefully in the near future we will return.

from The McGowan Family March 2016

"Hi Dawn & Alan
  We had a fantastic stay at Villa Sunrise Dream. It was a real Home from Home for both families with plenty of room for us to relax. The kids loved the pool & playroom and if the kids are happy the parents are too!

The Villa had absolutely everything that we needed for a truly wonderful break and is in a lovely tranquil location, I wouldn't hesitate recommending to family and friends.

We had 2 very minor issues (over chlorinated jacuzzi and early start to the pool heating) but both were sorted out immediately by the management company.

I'll pop a review on your Facebook page but will be more than happy if you want to use this email as a review on your website.

Thank you again & I will definitely be back in touch if we visit Florida again.

Stunning sunsets

"Hi Dawn
  The villa was beautiful, clean & tidy when we arrived, everthing worked. Only had to contact Management Company as couldnt see how to open patio doors, despite being early Sunday morning he was very polite and helpful and explained over the phone.

The booking process was quick, easy and with no problems.

We will definitely visit again and recommend to friends.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa.

Hi Dawn
"Entering the villa was easy with all the code information supplied.The villa was very clean ,tidy and comfortable.All equipment  needed was there with plenty of kitchen and cooking equipment.We have been to at least six villas over the years and this was definitely the best,everything we could ask for was there and more.
On the first use of the hot tub we found the chemical fumes very strong so we contacted the management company to check it out.We met Shaun and Norma and had a good chat with them and they soon sorted out the problem.They were a very friendly an professional couple and did a good job.

If we were to return to Florida we would most definately use your villa again and recommend your villa to friends and family as everything was perfect.The booking process was easy and everything from start to finish ran smoothly.

Thanking you very much

"Hi Dawn

Just a quick word to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home, we all had a fantastic time, and the view from the hot tub is fantastic, and I loved to have a swim in the morning and look at the wild life and the hot air balloons flying over early mornings and it is so close to all the Disney parks... Brilliant


  Mike and Mandy White June 2015

"Hi Dawn

Absolutely loved the villa, it has to be one of the best ones we have stayed in out there - we recommended it to my brother before we even went and I believe he has booked for September.

The only feedback I would have is that the blinds in the master bedroom could do with being repaired or replaced so that no light comes in.

That would be the only criticism though and that was thinking really hard to come up with something! We really loved the villa and the area it was in. I reckon Charlotte and I are convinced when we go back to Florida in a couple of years that we'll be coming back to Sunrise Dream!

The Dodds Family May 2015

"Hi Dawn

Thanks for your note - yes, we had an amazing holiday thank you! Your villa was very lovely and on the very few days we stayed home, we loved using the pool and hot tub.  I think we need another holiday to recover though as we did 12 theme parks in 15 days, and the weather was super hot.

The welcome book was amazing and your short cut suggestion saved us hours in the car, so thank you for that. We loved our theme park holiday and plan to return when Max has grown a few inches so he can go on some of the bigger thrill rides...we did manage to squeeze him in on the Tower of Terror and he loved it!


  The Brown Family April 2015

"Hi Dawn

Needless to say, I sure wish we were back at your villa:). On behalf of  our party of eight, we would like to say thank you very much for a glorious stay in Kissimmee.  This was our first time staying in a vacation home and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever.  The kids loved everything about Florida but the favourite part of our vacation for the adults was simply relaxing in your beautiful backyard by the pool.  We love a beautiful view and sunset lake certainly did not disappoint.  It was gorgeous, especially during sunset!!

We did contact your management company on our second day.  The pool was very hot, too uncomfortable for swimming and the hot tub was not heating up.  Management needed to work on the temperature control panel and it was fixed by the late afternoon.
All appliances were perfect and made our stay feel just like home.  The booking process was simple and all of the added information that you gave was wonderful.  We would definitely stay at your home again and we would recommend it to others.

The Chabot Family March 2015

"Hi Dawn
We cannot speak highly enough of your villa, it's location, the amenities and the stunning sunset view!! This was our fourth time to have stayed in a villa in the Kissimmee area and your villa was voted the best by a country mile by all the family. Should we retun again to Orlando we will definitly wish to stay at Sunrise Dream. .
We found the villa spotlessly
clean, and the condition of everything very good
and in working order.

The booking process was simple and straightforward and we really
loved the lake, it made the Villa even more special."

  The Weafer Family March 2015

"Hi Dawn

Everything was perfect, you have a lovely villa, the organisation was flawless and i've already recommended it to a couple of friends. I'm sure we'll be in touch again ourselves in the future also... it's hard to stay away from Florida :)
Thank you once again

The Downing Family February 2015

"Hi Dawn
Happy New Year to you also.
We really enjoyed our holiday and the villa in Orlando.

The house was beautiful, it was clean, instructions were helpful and we especially liked the pool and lovely view to the lake"

The Tahtela Family Xmas/New Year 2014/5

"Hi Dawn

We had a great time, thank you for renting us your villa! The pool and lake view were amazing, we could have spent every day there. The villa is beautiful and immaculate. Sunset Lakes is a great community and we'd definitely consider renting with you again when we return to Florida.

The Allens- October 2014

"Hi Dawn
Had a great holiday at the villa.
Everything was clean and comfortable, a very well equipped villa.

The booking process was straightforward and simple - the best we've had after several villa holidays in Florida. Thank you"

The Ramsay Family - September 2014

"We had amazing time, the villa was perfect, clean, close, well equipped and comfy. Everybody had a great time. The prospectus was very professionally put together. The advance contact was second to none, and left not a single question. Contact with mgmt company - I did call them as water wasn't flowing for the little pool in to the big pool. They responded immediately after missing the initial call and were very helpful and knowledgeable. Could do with better knives. They were very flexible and would bend when trying to cut things like carrots etc.
Would I rebook......100%
Would I recommend....100%
You should very proud of both your villa and yourself. I think some people get nervous booking direct with an owner and not through a company, you've done an amazing job of settling those fears.
Thank you so much for making our holiday the amazing success that it was.

The North Lewis Family- April 2014

"Good Morning Dawn. We are having breakfast and then heading home.

I just wanted to send you a short note telling you how much we enjoyed villa sunrise this week. All the little "extras" you have added here make it feel like "home". It was certainly above what I expected. Thank you for sharing your villa with us."

The Bowser Family - March 2014


"Hi Dawn,

Thank you for your email. We had a really good time and the weather was lovely and warm.

The villa was superb as usual, lovely and clean and we appreciated the changes you have made, new fridge freezer, with loads of room, new microwave, seating units are really nice and comfy and we liked the new remote control fan in the lounge. 

It was lovely to wake up to the views across the lake and equally satifying to sit out in the evening and watch the sun go down. Thanks again for making our holiday special".

"The villa was fantastic and really complimented our holiday, the facilities were immaculate and pristine upon arrival. The house is large and spacious enough to satisfy our party, the children had a wonderful time in the games room & swimming pool and the adults enjoyed the sunset over the lake whilst enjoying cool drinks!

Location wise the house is very convenient and within a comfortable drive of all the parks, the shortcut to Disney was used on a regular basis. A short drive away along the 192 is a large selection of restaurants and shops , so deciding what to eat can be a problem!

Many thanks to Dawn who was very helpful throughout the whole process, we would definitely use the villa again if we were to return and would happily recommend the villa to our friends."

The Livingston Family April 2013

Hi Dawn,

"Congratulations for your beautiful home. In addition, we were amazed with the good taste which was decorated, and also because it has everything you might need. We have spent a great holiday.

We are very grateful that we have been allowed to stay at the home"

The Boschetti Family March 2013

Dear Dawn and Alan

"Your place was awesome......the kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot was really close to all the parks which was so convenient.......thank you for everything it was a great vacation.....didn't want to leave...:)"

The Hill & Robinson Families February/March 2013

Hi Dawn and Alan

"We had the BEST holiday!! Your villa is absolutely stunning and that was my favourite part. I would get up early and make coffee and just sit outside next to the pool in the quiet and it was brilliant. We were very busy and the weather was horrific the first four days, but the sun came out on the Tuesday and shone until we left. It was just sooo good I am utterly depressed to be back".

The Taylor Family June/July 2012

Hi Dawn and Alan

"Just to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the villa, it is so beautiful and everything we had wished for.

Eating out was so easy, so much variety and local to the villa.

We had a wonderful time, our granddaughter never stayed out of the pool, we had been at Disney an hour and she said can I go back to the pool now"

The Whitehouse Family March/April 2012

'The location was ideal as it was close to Disney, other attractions, shops, supermarkets etc. We have stayed previously in other pool homes in the surrounding area but this was by far the best and have already booked for next year. The villa has one of the best plots on Sunset Lakes as the front faces open fields and the rear faces the full length of the lake. This gives spectacular views down the lake both in a morning and especially watching the sun set. The balcony has a sunny outlook with the magnificent views. The villa was clean and tidy and well equipped, we especially like the free internet and high standard of fittings and appliances.

We found the whole experience from the first contact with Dawn to the end of the holiday very helpful and stress free. Can't wait to get back there next year'.

The Orritt Family, October/November 2011

'Your villa is absolutely gorgeous and after a long flight, we walked in and just knew we were going to have the best holiday ever. Everything you could wish for and more was provided and so much space, we never felt we were on top of each other.
Thanks so much. You have been great and so is your villa. I would definitely go back and recommend your to anyone who is looking to go to Florida'

The Emery Family June 2011

"Dawn, I can not stress strongly enough how much we enjoyed your home in Florida. From the moment we walked through the door our grandchildren danced,  jumped and general screamed from one room to an other. Ivan and I had planned this vacation to give them lifetime memories and thanks to you and Disney World our plan succeeded.
The house is a wonderful place to escape the frenzy of the Orlando experience. Having areas for play and quiet time made it perfect for a multi-generational family to spend time together and apart.
The house was immaculate when we arrived and had everything needed for a great holiday.
Dawn, We want you to know we would highly recommend your home and although it is very large for Ivan and I,  if we travel to Florida as a family again we will definitely book Villa Sunrise Dream".
The Svendsen Family May 2011

"We really enjoyed staying at your villa. To be honest.. I really don't know what to mention that can improve a stay at your villa. Everything was there, at the moment we came inside.
 It was clean, the pool area was clean, the water in the pool was not too hot, not cold.. Just good!
The computer, wifi, everything we needed and more was present.
Also it was a very safe feeling that there was an alarm system, and the community had a gate.
We (my wife and I) went to the Orlando area 5 times prior to this one, but I have to say that the location of your house was great.
The week later we went to the beach, and we had rented a house at Fort Myers.
It was a huge house, that was also more expensive. There was no computer, they disabled the wifi (Which I did enabled)
So the experience in the week that we were at your villa, was a lot better than the last week.
Thank you for renting the villa, we loved our stay! :)"

The Van Rhijn Family April 2011

Hi Dawn,
"You have a wonderful home in Kissimmee and your information pack was spot-on in terms of giving us all we needed & your shortcut to the Disney Resorts was brilliant and that served us well on several days.
We think your Villa is very well equipped and a lot of thought seems to have gone in to catering for the needs of families & children with games, DVDs, puzzles, books, toys and car seats. We particularly liked to use the iPod stereo system you have there & it was a very nice surprise to be able to listen to our own music each day.
The best thing we can say about it is that it felt like being at home – comfortable and with all the things we needed to hand to make our stay enjoyable.
Finally I would like to say thank you to you. You have provided excellent communications throughout and have exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at Villas before, booked through holiday companies as part of a package but yours was the first we ever booked and used direct so we were a little cautious about what kind of experience we would have. It has been brilliant!"

Gary and Barbara Homes, January 2010

"The villa was spotless couldn’t fault it for anything. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone, would just like to say thanks for letting us have your villa it just made our holiday and also with all the help you gave us with our wedding."

The Hancocks June 2008 (we were delighted to be asked by the Hancock’s for permission for the happy couple to marry at the villa)

"We loved the decor and layout of floor plan. All the girls felt like princesses where their dreams came true. It was very clean and in excellent condition. Great location, quiet neighbourhood, great view of the lake, close to everything. We wanted to stay longer and enjoy the home, thank you so much.
We had the most wonderful time! And the best part of the whole trip was the house! We booked most of our days at the parks and felt like we should have had more time just to stay at the house and enjoy it more! My husband took lots of pictures of the house and said if we ever built another house, it would look like yours. Everything was perfect -thank you!"
