About the property

Villa in Sunset Lakes, Kissimmee, Florida, USA - Peaceful Exclusive Private Location, 4 Miles to Disney

'Still Waters', our beautifully-appointed and highly upgraded lake front villa, is a perfect vacation choice if you appreciate peace and tranquility in luxurious surroundings, yet want the convenience of being as close as possible to the Orlando theme parks, shopping and golf courses. The view of the lake from the pool, spa and deck is incomparable, when you sit outside sipping a cool drink in the evening, watching the sun go down, then seeing the moon rise over the water, you will find it hard to believe that you are just 5 minutes drive from the main gates of Disney and the lively Highway 192. This is one of the largest 4 bedroom vacation homes in the Orlando area (2604sq.ft) so there is ample room for 2 couples or families to holiday together in comfort. 'Still Waters' has had $000's spent recently on it to ensure that it provides the best villa vacation possible. We visit regularly to ensure that it is continually upgraded and maintained to our exacting standards.

About Amanda Burrup

Hi, we are Iain and Amanda Burrup. We live in the beautiful Cotswolds area of the UK, and have owned this dream Florida vacation home for several years now. We visit around 3 times a year, to get our sunshine fix and for Iain to play a little golf. We have 4 grand-daughters, who can't wait visit the Disney parks and the other great child-friendly attractions of the area! Regular visiting also gives us an opportunity to ensure that our home is being maintained and cared for properly by our management company. Each time we go, we always find ourselves upgrading things, and shopping for little extras that we feel will enhance our guests' experience. If you decide to choose our villa for your Florida vacation, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Best wishes, Iain and Amanda.

Amanda Burrup purchased this villa in 2005

Why Amanda Burrup chose Sunset Lakes

The location of the villa couldn't be better if you wish to visit the Disney theme parks, as it is only 4 miles from Animal Kingdom, and there is a useful short-cut we can tell you about to get to there and also the I-4 which gives easy access to Universal Studios, Legoland, and the large shopping malls.

Over the past couple of years, there has been a huge increase in the number of great restaurants within really easy reach of the villa (including Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabas, Olive Garden, Applebees, Joe's Crab Shack, Buffalo Wild Wings, Bonefish Grill, Bahama Breeze, Orlando Ale House and Logans Steak House).

There are also two excellent Publix supermarkets, plus a SuperTarget and a WalMart Superstore nearby, so you are really quite spoilt for shopping choice.

What makes this villa unique

We love this villa because although it is so convenient for the theme parks, golfing and shopping, when you return and relax outside overlooking the tranquil lake you feel a million miles away from all the hustle and bustle.

Its south-facing aspect means that the pool and deck get the sun from early morning until the sun goes down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really love this location, being so close to so many things, and the view of the lake is fabulous - Larson, PA.

It was great to return to the villa after a busy day at the parks, knowing that it would be very peaceful and relaxing and within such a close proximity to the main attractions - Ross, UK.

Updated decor and quiet surroundings added to our relaxation so much we stayed four extra days! - StClair, UT.

We have stayed at various locations within Sunset Lakes over the years and this was one of the best. - McNairn, Scotland

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Amanda and Ian’s place. It’s spacious, clean and comes with all necessities to make your stay comfortable. The pool is the best feature. We swam in it every day. Loved it. The location is convenient, close to Disney attractions, restaurants and grocery stores. A perfect place for exploring around or just staying in if you want to take it easy.

Beautiful location, fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

The view from the pool area across the lake is beautiful and isn’t overlooked. The villa interior is much nicer than others we’ve stayed in with bright colours and modern furniture. The location just off the 192 can’t be beaten, there’s loads nearby including all of the parks. This is the 9th villa we’ve rented and would rent it again, the only thing that would make it perfect would be access to Netflix or something similar

Have just stayed at the wonderful villa and from the start of the booking process to arriving home after the holiday, the owners could not have been more helpful and efficient, They were very quick to respond to all enquiries and were always most helpful. The villa is so handy for the parks, but it was lovely to come home and chill by the lovely pool and spa. Everything you need is in the villa, you could not ask for anything more, would highly recommend a stay here. Mélanie & Bruno &Yanic & Luca

Perfect base for our first Florida holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious villa which is only 5 minutes from Animal Kingdom and 10 minutes from the remaining Disney parks. We made use of the swimming pool and hot tub as well as the full size pool table when returning to the villa after our long days at the parks. The bedrooms where spacious with lots of storage space as well as the large bathrooms with walk in showers. We throughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset lakes.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late at night, and had no trouble getting into the home. Everything was as advertised, and it was a really lovely home with a great layout. We were traveling with our children and my parents (3 generations), and the layout of the home was perfect for that, with the two master bedrooms. The pool area was SO wonderful. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Even though the weather was chilly while we were there, the heated pool made it possible for us to swim anyway. We visited Disney and Universal during our stay. Disney was about a 20 minute drive, and Universal about 30 or so. My only very minor complaint with regards to the location, is that there is nothing at all within walking distance. One day my parents did not want to accompany us to the parks, and I felt like they were "stranded" at home with nothing they could access once we left with the car. But, the house itself was totally lovely, and we were very pleased with it. We will definitely consider staying here again if we come back to Orlando! Thanks so much, Amanda & Iain!

The nearest Atlantic beaches, the Kennedy Space Centre and the Gulf of Mexico are approx 1 hours drive. A little further afield, you can easily reach Daytona Beach within 2 hours.


Sunset Lakes is an easy 30 minutes drive from Orlando International Airport. Other options are Sanford Airport, which is around 50 minutes drive, or Tampa (approx 1.5 hrs drive).

Car hire is inexpensive and really necessary wherever you stay in the Orlando/Disney area as public transport is poor. Discounted rates with major car rental firms including Budget and Alamo are available - our website has all the details. These discounts are available whether or not you choose to book our villa.


Walt Disney World is only 4 miles away. Sunset Lakes is within 4 minutes drive of local amenities at Formosa Plaza (shopping, pharmacy, banks and restaurants) and HW192 with its numerous restaurants, gift shops etc.

Universal Studios and Sea World are approx. 20 minutes drive, as are several fantastic shopping malls including The Mall at Millenia, The Florida Mall and Premium Outlets. Legoland is around 40 minutes drive.

Further Details:

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 tranquillity of this fabulous location it is hard to imagine that you are just 4 miles from the main gates of Disney.

The luxurious homes are minutes away from many golf courses, restaurants and supermarkets. Getting to and from the theme parks is easy with this ideal location. You really can visit the parks in the morning, spend the afternoons relaxing by your own private pool and then return to the parks in minutes.

On site there is a communal pool and children’s play area, and you can fish in the well stocked lake. Conservation land adjoins the development creating a natural habitat for the wildlife of Florida.

'Still Waters' has a glorious south-facing location on the larger of the two lakes.
