Sunset Lakes is a small, exclusive lakeside community, ideally situated in the Formosa area of Kissimmee, just off the US192, and only 4 miles to Disney via an easy shortcut which will take you to the gates of Animal Kingdom in less than 10 minutes. Easily accessible, it is 40 minutes from Orlando International Airport and 1 hour from Sanford International Airport.
There is a selection of 3, 4, 5, and 6 bedroom spacious homes to choose from, either one or two storey, with varying interior floor plans and private swimming pools. Most homes overlook either one of the 2 lakes, or the conservation area. Many of the two storey 4, 5 and 6 bedroom homes have 2 Master suites, one on each floor, which make them ideal for 2 sets of family of friends travelling together.
The community is gated and also offers a communal swimming pool and tot lot/playground – great places to meet and say hello to your neighbours.
The lakes and conservation are home to much local wildlife, and you may be lucky enough to see our family of sand cranes, a racoon and even a friendly otter in the lake. The lake itself is home to many ducks and fish including bass and carp – villa guests are welcome to fish in the lake during their stay – fishing rods and bait are available at your local Wal-Mart store.
Within five minutes drive is Formosa Place. Here you will find a Winn Dixie Supermarket, ideal for essential supplies when you arrive, restaurants including TGI Fridays, The Outback (for delicious steaks and ribs), Giordano’s, Carrabbas, a Chinese Restaurant, beauty salon and a new mini golf. Further along the 192 you are spoilt for choice with restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
The close proximity to the parks makes Sunset Lakes the ideal retreat for spending the morning at any of the numerous attractions, returning to your villa for a rest and swim before returning later in the day to watch the fireworks or enjoy an evening meal. Alternatively, what better way to spend your evening than dining al-fresco at your villa while enjoying the spectacular sunsets the community is named after?
Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and SeaWorld are an easy 20 minutes drive away, while Busch Gardens in Tampa is approximately 1 hour away. For some retail therapy a selection of Outlet Malls can easily be reached within half an hour.
For golfing enthusiasts you will be spoilt for choice with the many top-class courses in the area.
