The Retreat By The Lake is located on a tree-lined street in the quiet gated community of Sunset Lakes. This location is a true oasis in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. Whether you’ve just Mickeyed your way through the Magic Kingdom, flown a Banshee at Animal Kingdom, or spent the day on the links converting that 96 into a 69, you can return through the gates of this well-established community into a peaceful, serene environment where you have your own spacious villa at a fraction of the cost of a 5-star hotel. Sunset Lakes is well populated with wildlife. Ducks, Ibis, Sandhill Cranes, Eagles, and Osprey are common. “Catch and Release” fishing is allowed on the fish stocked lakes. Limited fishing gear is available at The Retreat.
When staying at The Retreat, one can be lulled into believing that you are in the country far away from it all. You wouldn't suspect that you are just minutes away from the theme parks and the stores / restaurants of Kissimmee. Grocery, big box and drug stores are also just minutes away. Everyone who visits The Retreat and Sunset Lakes is impressed by the peaceful tranquility of the neighbourhood and the lake. Other vacation home communities close to the theme parks cannot offer you this combination.
Sunset Lakes is a gated community with an electronic key code access and surveillance system. The Retreat itself has its own electronic key code access system. Your code, which is unique to you and your stay, will be provided to you by email prior to the start of your vacation. If any issues arise our Property Management Company is available to assist you. Two hotel grade safes are available to protect your valuables. All sliding doors at The Retreat are secured by safety locks and door alarms so you can keep track of the little ones. The Retreat backs onto the lake, not someone else's backyard. Visibility from the neighbour’s backyards is restricted by hedges, screens and the lake.
Located in an idyllic setting just minutes away from the major attraction the Retreat has all the amenities that one should expect from a 5-star vacation home. What’s not to love!!!
We are retired civil servants from Ottawa Canada. We spend our winters at the Retreat By The Lake. When we are not there we enjoy sharing our winter homes with guests. We also manage the rentals for Mike's sister's villa, The Lake House at Sunset Lakes which is only a few doors down from The Retreat By The Lake. We believe in providing villas that we ourselves would be willing to stay in (in fact we do).
