This home was in the perfect location for visiting Disney World, our family of 6 adults and 2 children spent a perfect week here, everything was as clean as could be and well equipped, having dinner by the pool and watching the fireworks was an extra plus, the beds were very comfortable, we hope to be able to stay here again on our next visit

Andrew,

Thank you for taking the time to review our vacation home 'The Retreat' and choosing to stay with us.

Our location close to Disney World allows you more time to have fun on your vacation and less time travelling to and from the parks.

Our outdoor entertainment area is the perfect way to end a busy day, having dinner around the pool watching the stunning Disney fireworks.

Thank you again for choosing to stay at 'The Retreat' and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon.

My family (husband and daughter aged 15) had an absolutely fantastic holiday at this villa. It was everything we had imagined from the photos - beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and lovely views. Perfect for visiting Disney, and close to local shops and restaurants.

George,
Thank you for choosing 'The Retreat' as your vacation home for you and your family. We have worked hard to make 'The Retreat' a true home away from home offering you the perfect vacation villa so close to Disney.
Our unique Lakeside location is much sought after, we believe there is no better way to have breakfast than sitting outside around the private pool overlooking Sunset Lake.
We hope to welcome you back soon.

This was my 7th trip to Orlando and The Retreat is the best place I have stopped in. The villa is huge, very clean, great pool area, lovely quiet gated community, very close to shops, restaurants, attractions. The owner Brian was very helpful and very quick to answer any questions. I cannot fault The Retreat.

“Perfect Florida Home”

This is an absolutely beautiful holiday home. It is in a perfect location, only a 10 minute drive to Disney, near to many restaurants and a large Target superstore. It is beautifully decorated and very well stocked with everything you need e.g. crockery, glassware,sun loungers, towels etc...
The pool is perfect and the view of the lake from the patio is just amazing. Watching the sunrise over the lake was just magical.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone as in my opinion it is the perfect Florida holiday home.

We stayed here for 16 nights a total of 5 adults and 1 child. The home offers you everything that you could wish for, everything has been thought of so that your stay is as comfortable as possible. The location is geat for Disney. Being able to watch the fireworks from the loungers by the pool is amazing. Wouldn't hesitate to come back if we return.

Karen,

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review for 'The Retreat'. Much time and effort has gone into ensuring 'The Retreat' caters for our visitors, drawing from our own experience of saying a vacation villas while visiting Florida.

We are glad you enjoyed watching the Disney fireworks from the comfort of 'The Retreat'. What can be better after a long day at Disney to kick back, relax around the pool, drink in hand and still enjoy Disney.

We hope to welcome you and your family back to 'The Retreat' soon.

Thank You,
The Retreat at Sunset Lakes

“Wonderful vacation home!”

We loved staying in your vacation home! Very clean and well stocked. We traveled with 3 young grandchildren and their parents. The kids loved the pool and the game room. Lots of room for a party of 8. I don't know why anyone would rather stay in a hotel room. For the price of one hotel room you could stay in this beautiful house just minutes from all the attractions. If we go back to the Disney area we will definitely stay here again. I would like to suggest you get a few more toys for the pre-school aged children. Maybe a bucket and shovel for the playground and a truck or 2. Some blocks would be good too. You cant pack many toys when you travel by plane a few toys would be great.
