Sunshine Palms - a luxury home for a great vacation! Sparkling, Sunny, SOUTH FACING Pool & Spa, Games Room, Fast Internet, PC, Wi-Fi, Clubhouse & more...
"We had the greatest of holidays and your home was literally the cherry on the cake, from the space available to lounge to the excellent bedrooms to my favourite the pool!
Many thanks again and we shall be sure to recommend your home."
"The stay at Sunshine Palms and the memories we made while in Orlando will be cherished forever. The simple yet elegant decor and the clean carpets along with the mild air freshener made us feel at home on arrival. The villa gave us the opportunity to bring our families, living thousands of miles away from each other, under one roof. Every little amenity and furnishing at the villa is well thought out. The insulated lunch bag, the strollers, the pool floats, the TT, the pre-tuned TVs etc were very useful. We would plan for a longer stay the next time, just to better enjoy the villa. The proximity to Walmart and Walgreens made it possible to stock Groceries and do quick pickups of one-off items in the mornings. The mere awareness of a couple of urgent care and pediatric clinics less than a mile away was comforting. Thanks."

"Perfect for our extended clan and ideally located for Walt Disney World. Thank you for everything you provided that helped make our vacation a wonderful, relaxing experience." The McDougall Clan, Canada and Scotland
"I just wanted to say thanks for the lovely home. We had a wonderful time. Everything was beautiful and very well maintained. It was our first trip to Disney. The kids had a wonderful time in the pool, they actually didn't want to go anywhere, they just wanted to stay and swim. We were so relaxed there, it really felt like our home. We are planning on returning next year at the same time. Once again, we just wanted to say thank you and to let you know that we will recommend your home to anyone who needs a place to stay in Florida." The Shonks, USA (Ref: 1009)

….we had a wonderful vacation with our family in Florida, just getting back earlier this week. We certainly enjoyed your house, it was perfect for our extended clan and was ideally located near to Disney World, which is what we wanted. We were fortunate to have two little troupers aged 3 and 5 who walked everywhere and spent long days (7 days and 1 evening) at Disney World, without a complaint and never asking for a thing.
. … ….We were more than pleased with how well the house worked out for us and will certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Orlando. Our only regret is that the two weeks passed so quickly and we were on the go every day, without taking any time out to really relax.
….We had good weather the whole time, warm but not hot, and even had the good fortune to see the space shuttle take off. Your front yard was an ideal viewing spot for this event.
…All in all, our vacation was everything we hoped it would be and your house was exactly as depicted on your web site.
…we appreciate the very professional attitude you have demonstrated in marketing your house. Your follow-ups have been excellent and are a true indication of the care and interest you show towards people like ourselves who rent your house.
…Thank you for everything you provided that helped make our vacation a wonderful, relaxing experience.
… I was very impressed. I’ve never rented a vacation home that was left cleaner.
…Thank you for your e-mail we had a wonderful time in Florida and enjoyed being in your villa. We appreciated the free phone calls as I have elderly parents and it was easy to keep in touch. Your villa was lovely and it was nice to come home in the evening for a swim and relax by the pool after a hard day at the parks.
…Just want to say thank you for letting us stay in your house, it was as ever amazing. I will be booking again for next year.
So remember the price quoted is for our house (not per person!) with all this for you to enjoy. Please ask us on the enquiry form if you have any questions that haven’t been answered….
We hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you to Sunshine Palms soon.
