Hi Ely and Dave
We just wanted to say thank you again for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.
We are leaving today and will miss the relaxed atmosphere (maybe because this time it was just myself and Tina ) but we will be back in November, also to Sunset Lakes.
We can honestly say that this, in 30 years of coming to Florida, has been one of the nicest homes we have stayed in and you appear to have thought of everything.
We will be keeping an eye on your bookings calendar and hope we can stay here again very soon.

We visited Orlando in February 2022 and spent 12 days in this lovely, well equipped and beautifully maintained villa. As a family of 7 ranging from 5 years old to 60 years old we headed to Florida under the final restrictions of Covid. The villa was booked in last 2021 for a family birthday celebration and communications with Ely and Dave were very smooth after an initial telephone conversation. On arriving at Orlando airport late Saturday we followed the instructions and found the villa easily - when we got inside we were very impressed and happy with our holiday accommodation. The villa proved to be the perfect base to explore the Disney parks (c 15 minutes away) and Universal (25 mins) but also provided a great place to relax and recover on a couple of off days. The villa is very nicely furnished with comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen and also use of the washing machine and drier which meant we didnt have to take so many clothes (we didn't have to - but we did). We also loved the Pool table, air hockey and table football (a bit confused why there are 13 men each side lol) along with dart board for a couple of games nights. We had a great holiday and if we every return for more Disney then we would love to stay again. Thankyou for allowing us to stay

The most amazing villa to stay in. Myself and my family had the best holiday ever. Total luxury within the villa. The location is just perfect for all the Disney parks, shops and restaurants. Would most definitely recommend staying here. All the necessary requirements for a fantastic holiday. Can't wait to return !!!

A fantastically equipped holiday home situated close to the Disney and Universal Attractions. A quiet residential style gated development with a nice looking community pool, though we were more than happy with the villa's own pool and hot tub. The games room was well used as well.There is an abundance of towels and crockery for your use and every appliance you will need. If I was to be really picky a cool box would have been useful....but that is being REALLY picky. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. Ely was helpful and prompt in all communications as were the Onsite Management team.

From the minute we made our initial contact with the owners to book the villa, to the minute we pulled off the villa drive to head to the airport and fly home, everything was perfect!
The owners made the whole process as simple as possible and there was good communication throughout.
The villas location is ideal for Disney & Universal and the other Orlando theme parks. The gated community of Sunset Lakes is idyllic, so quiet and so well maintained.
We were a party of 4 (Mum, Dad and 2 boys (7 & 8 years old), and the villa had everything we needed and more! The villa is well decorated, modern and clean. It's well equipped and we found everything we needed in the cupboards from dishwasher tabs to mosquito repellent, absolutely everything. The heated pool and hot tub were big holiday favourites. The games room in garage was well stocked with everything else we could need, including scooters and pool toys and rain ponchos!
All in all, this villa helped make our 3 week holiday a fantastic family to remember.
Thank you so much Ely for sharing your beautiful home with us...I'm positive we will be back!

The villa was in a great location just off the 192, close to Disney and plenty of restaurants. The villa itself was well decorated and had everything we needed during our stay. The recliner sofas were great for snuggling up on the couch. The only let down was that there wasn't much choice of TV channels. apart from that the villa was perfect! The highlight was the hot tub! After a long day at the parks it was exactly what we needed to relax! Would definitely recommend a stay in this villa!

its always a gamble, booking a villa where are you haven't been before, over the many years we've been going to Orlando, we've had the pleasure of staying in some really nice villas and some not so nice ones :-(. But the whole family agreed this was one of the best we stayed at, very clean, very modern and is clearly well looked after. It's been my experience over the years that villas, live and die on how good the management companies are and they clearly have a good one here, when we walked in the place is spotless and clearly was well maintained. We also had some major concerns about the whole booking process with Covid restrictions, we still didn't know 24 hours before we flew if we could actually go because we had to test negative, but the owners of the villa could not have been more accommodating and more understanding .
We've always been big fans of Emerald Isle, mainly because of the location, and I was pleasantly surprised as this is literally 200 yards away from a Emerald Isle, which makes a superb, location meaning you can get to Disney World in less than 10 mins without touching the I4, which for anyone who's been before, will know that's a bonus :-)
From now on this will be our go to Villa, as we are hoping we can now resume our annual visits to Orlando ( covid permitting) I would have no hesitation in recommending both owners and the Villa to anyone who is considering booking

We have been coming to Florida for over 20 years, so have stayed in many hotels and villas. Sunset Lakes is a gated community, very quiet and the villa was located near the community pool which was a bonus. Although there was only 2 of us, we had 4 lovely bedrooms to choose from and the games room was used. The villa was lovely and clean with beautiful furnishings and a spacious kitchen with everything provided. The outside area with the pool was great and we had it heated after contacting Ely which made a difference at this time of year. The hot tub was amazing to relax in after doing the parks.
We contacted the management company about the safe not closing and they came the next day. Nothing was too much trouble or Ely.
The location for Disney is great and easy access to highways.
I would highly recommend staying at this villa to family and friends.

What an amazing time we had! Thank you so much Dave and Ely for our fantastic stay. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The children loved the pool and were delighted to find an array of inflatables. The boys made good use of the games room. and the hot tub was a delight after a long, exhausting day at the parks. The beds were hotel standard, we all agreed we've never slept in such cozy beds. In summary, beautiful house, welcoming community, perfectly located, well equipped and sparkling clean. We will definitely be back! The McLucas family

We had a lovely two weeks at Pourquoi Pas. Ely was always quick to reply to emails and the management team were on hand if needed. About 15 mins from Disney and 25 from Universal . Quiet location and added security of a gated community. So close to restaurants which were all amazing. Villa spacious with everything you could ask for and more . Close to Publix don’t go to Walmart ! Pool clean and hot tub lovely . Only thing I would say having been before and staying in a similar property that the games room really isn’t that air conditioned and lacked comfort . Better than no air conditioning but still felt like we were in the garage which we were.
Ely thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa Shelley and John

We have just returned from staying at this gorgeous villa and wish we could go back already. The home had everything we could have possibly needed and we felt completely comfortable staying there. The home was very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable, we I didnt miss my own bed at all! We would absolutely reccomend this villa to anybody visiting Orlando, and if and when we return, this will be the home we stay at! We had a tiny problem with air con and the maintenance team were there in under an hour and sorted it straight away! You could not ask for better service. Thank you to Ely and Dave for letting us stay at their beautiful home, we loved it!

We stayed here last 11 years ago and chose to come back due to the excellent location for both the Disney and Universal parks. As before, the Villa is lovely inside and clean and fresh throughout. It is well furnished and comfortable. There were 6 adults, which gave us ample room. The owner, as always, was very helpful when we were booking.
We had initial trouble with the air conditioning, however, we phoned the number supplied and the problem was fixed the same day, which was extremely helpful.
I would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this lovely villa.
Thank you very much to the Owners.

Wow, what a house, what a location and what a holiday! We couldn't have had a better time, from booking through to post holiday the owners were only too happy to oblige with anything and everything we needed. The house exceeded our expectations and we cant wait to return. Anyone looking to enjoy Florida should contact Ely, who is both customer focussed and more than informative, a true delight to work with. Thanks Ely!

This is an amazing villa - it honestly has everything you need to have a great holiday. Large, clean, a spa tub and pool - what more could you ask for? For those that are into Premier League and Champions League football, rest assured knowing you won't miss any of the action on the giant TV in the living room! Not only that, its such an ideal location being so close to Disney. To be honest it's not even far from international drive or the airport; provided you have a car you can pretty much travel anywhere within an hour. Beforehand we had great communication between ourselves and the owners; do not hesitate to book!

Had 2 wonderful weeks in this amazing villa. Owners have provided everything you could possibly need. The hot tub provides a great opportunity to relax after long days at the parks and the villa is in a great location for Disney parks. We felt very safe being in a gated community and the information provided at the villa is very useful. Ely is very prompt with replies when entering into the booking process and willing to answer any questions about the villa. As a party of only four in this huge house there was plenty of space to relax. We are hoping to return in 2021 and wouldn’t hesitate to use this villa again. Thank you again for our stay and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay.

We have stayed in Orlando villas before but this was by far the best one we have been in.
Booking process was straightforward and Ely is a lovely lady to deal with.
The villa itself is kitted out with everything you could need and the hot tub is an added bonus for lazy afternoons or relaxing after a park day.
All the Disney parks and amenities are within an easy 15 minute drive and Universal is a quick trip up the i-4.
The nearby 192 (Bronson highway) has plenty of restaurants and shops to suit all budgets, all only 5 minutes away.
We loved it so much we re-booked for next year before we left :)
As the title states, Perfect villa in a perfect location.
Thanks Ely & Dave for a great villa.

Stayed at this amazing villa while visiting Orlando, wow such an awesome holiday we had. We had previously stayed here seven years ago and were delighted to stay again as we had loved it so much the last time. After a long flight delayed at the airport with thunderstorms, we finally arrive at the villa, tired but excited and how thankful we were to be able to access the villa with such ease. Excellent communication from the owners meant it was hassle free. After unpacking we dived into the amazing pool and cooled off! Just what we needed after a tiring day. The villa had every amenity you could need, no need for towels etc even rain ponchos were provided for our use. An extra bonus for us was the solar pool heating, our son struggles with the cold water and was delighted to find it such a welcoming temperature. We loved the pool and the hot tub was an extra treat after all the walking! Great location for theme parks and shopping, great selections of restaurants nearby. We highly recommend this villa and hope to return in the future.

Just returned from our holiday in florida staying in the villa. The place really does have everything you could need for a great holiday.
The beds are extremely comfortable the kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need the kids loved the pool and games room and had hours of fun using both the pool and the air hockey table.
They also loved the big bath in the main bedroom onsuite 4 kids all in at once they thought this was great.
As for us adults there are ample tv channels decent wifi and of course the pool and hot tub the fridge freezer is massive with plenty room for cooling drinks and food.
All in all i can not fault the place and would highly recomend it as a base for a great florida holiday.

We stayed at this villa over xmas 2017. When we arrived it had been decorated for xmas including a tree which was a lovely touch. The space is very good for an extended family. In an ideal location - very close to all the theme parks and attractions. As its a gated community felt very safe. Facilities are excellent and the pool table was a real hit with my boys. The hot tub was out of action for our stay so can't comment on that but the pool area was very nice. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we will go back one day :)

After browsing literally hundreds of villas on line, we settled on this one due to the location, and the prompt and friendly response from owners Ely & Dave. We were not disappointed with our choice. The location of the villa is ideal if you are homing in on Disney (who isn't!!). It really is just 10 minutes from the Disney entrance. There is a huge Walmart about 10mins away by car for all provisions, and some other local shops near by for quick replenishing of milk etc. The villa will not disappoint ~ spacious and in very good condition. It was sparkling clean on our arrival (and hopefully found to be so on our departure) . We included the hot tub in our booking which was great after a day at the parks. The swimming pool was ideal, although there is not much space around it if the whole family is there at the same time, but this did not detract from our enjoyment of this superb villa. ~ Highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 weeks from September into October, and had an absolutely fantastic time.
Everything you could ever need and more is provided, the house itself is beautiful and very well kept and in a perfect location - close to the parks and several restaurants, but far enough out to be quiet. We loved every second of our time here and completely recommend the villa to anyone considering staying in the area, we'll certainly look into coming back in the future.
The owner was also very friendly and helpful through every step of the booking process. Thank you for everything!

Excellent villa in a fantastic location. It really is as close to Disney as you will get and is so handy for restaurants and shops off the 192. The villa has everything you would need; it is clean, spacious and well looked after. Also, being in a gated community gives that feeling of extra security. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Good morning Ely,
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for letting us use your home.
We only got back on Tuesday after going further afield in Florida then back through New York.
The house was spotless and the hot tub a huge welcome in the evenings when we got back from the parks or shopping!!
We did have an unexpected guest one afternoon whilst sitting outside..... a black racer in the pool enclosure with us, you've never seen 3 people move so quickly :-D
Anyway Ely, thanks again, I'll definitely keep your details handy as I'm always in the Orlando area, and love it at Sunset Lakes.

This is a superb villa in a fantastic location, less than 10 mins drive to Disney World. The house has everything you could possibly want - all mod cons, plenty of space indoors, and a superb private pool area. It is beautifully maintained also, so rest assured that when you arrive it will look exactly as it does in the pictures. In fact, the pictures don't quite do it justice, as we couldn't believe how big the house actually is! The villa is located on a picturesque and peaceful gated community, with secure entry so you will feel very safe. The house overlooks a lake, and the view at sunrise is absolutely stunning. A few minutes drive up the road you will find Formosa Gardens, a selection of shops and decent restaurants, that are very handy. A few minutes further and you're on the 192, with all the diners, attractions and gift shops, and then before you know it you're on World Drive heading towards Disney. This is as perfect a location for a villa as you could possibly want. Close to everything, yet also a quiet and secluded oasis from all the theme park madness! The only downside to this villa would be the amount of outdoor space around the pool. As a party of four adults, there were only three sun loungers, and not enough room for us all to be out in the sun at the same time. A lot of the space is taken up by the hot tub which isn't really needed in the Floridian heat. That being said, it didn't in any way detract from our stay. We really enjoyed the villa and would recommend it to anyone.
