Sunset Villa provides a spacious, light and airy open plan living area with two large sofas (the worn out leather ones have been replaced).
The living room overlooks the swimming pool and has a large sliding patio door allowing access onto the pool deck.
The cool, white tiling has now been extended to include all living areas. The bedrooms are still carpeted.
There is a 46-inch flat screen TV with HD cable (including Starz and HBO channels) and an upscaling DVD player with a good selection of DVDs for all ages.
Also we have a Sony Playstation 3 with the MOVE system, which allows you to play a selection of exciting games (including Harry Potter) using only the motion of your
body. For musical entertainment there is a stereo CD player and a BOSE SoundDock so that you can enjoy your very own music from your iPod/iPhone.
The dining area has an large table and chairs seating up to 8 people. There are a further two stools which can be used at the adjacent
breakfast bar. The dining area has direct access to the lanai (shaded patio area with ceiling light/fan) via sliding doors.
This area also houses the 'home office' corner - just bring your own laptop to be totally connected to the fast broadband wifi service, and connect wirelessly or by the
provided cable to the laser printer - great for printing out your boarding cards before departure, spreadsheets or other documents. Two portable telephones are provided,
with unlimited free calls to local and US national landlines.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with full size cooker, fridge freezer with icemaker (updated since these photos to brand new side by side model with front ice/water dispensers)
, double sink with waste disposal, microwave oven, dishwasher, electric kettle, food mixer, blender and many other appliances. Everything you would need is here, whether
putting together a simple salad or preparing a full four course meal. The cupboards are well stocked with cutlery, crockery, glassware, utensils, pots, pans, serving
dishes and lots of plastic ware for your outside dining by the pool.
Pool and Lanai
Three sets of patio doors lead directly onto the screened pool deck where you will find plenty of high quality sun loungers, tables, chairs and
side tables to enjoy the Florida sunshine until late into the evening. There is a shaded lanai area that has an overhead fanlight and a table and chairs for outside
dining. The pool can be heated upon request during the cooler months, and is very private with mature hedges screening the views from both sides and to the rear. The
pool has been completely resurfaced in January 2013 to bring back that sparkling blue colour to the water!
The Games Room, formerly a double garage, contains a pool table (recently upgraded to a professional, slate-bed pool table) & foosball/table soccer, and sofas for lounging. There is also a box with a
selection of board games. For car parking, there is a full double driveway outside the garage, featuring a motion activated security light - plenty of room for two cars, side by side.
The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms with a layout that gives the ability for combined families / larger parties to holiday together but have
their own private space. Further sleeping accommodation is provided by the extremely comfortable queen sofa bed in the lounge.
All the bedding is provided and the beds are made up with clean linen before you arrive. Extra bedding is provided should you need it. The villa has air-conditioning
throughout, so will remain at a constant cool temperature that will make you feel comfortable even if the temperatures are on the up and up outside, and will also help
towards giving you a good nights sleep.
The King master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, iPod/iPhone docking radio alarm clock
and en-suite bathroom with wc, garden tub bath, large walk in shower cubicle and twin vanity units (and hairdryer). There is a walk-in closet off the bathroom with
electronic safe and lots of hanging storage space. The master bedroom also has a ceiling fan, sliding doors with a view of the pool area, a 32-inch flat screen
cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. Both bedroom and en suite have wide door access, making them fully wheelchair accessible.
The Queen master bedroom has a queen size bed with a luxurious non-allergenic mattress topper to sink into, iPod/iPhone docking radio alarm clock
and en-suite bathroom with wc, large walk in shower cubicle and wash hand basin. There is a built in closet with lots of hanging storage space. The Queen bedroom also
has a ceiling fan, a view to the front of the property, a 32-inch flat screen cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. A cupboard also contains a wide selection of paperback
books to enjoy during your stay.
Disney Twin Bedroom
The Disney themed twin bedroom has twin beds with luxurious non-allergenic mattress toppers and a selection of Disney character toys. It also has
a ceiling fan, 26-inch flat screen cable HDTV, DVD player and iPod/iPhone docking radio alarm clock.
A built in closet provides hanging storage space. The bedroom is adjacent to the family bathroom which has a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc (and hairdryer).
Second Twin Bedroom
This second twin bedroom has twin beds with luxurious non-allergenic mattress toppers. It also has an iPod/iPhone docking radio alarm clock,
ceiling fan, 26-inch flat screen cable HDTV and upscaling DVD player. A built in closet provides hanging storage space. The bedroom shares the Jack & Jill bathroom with
the Queen room, providing a large walk in shower cubicle, wc and wash hand basin.
The villa has a folding cot/playpen with bedding, a high chair, two lightweight strollers for those long days at the parks and a bed guard for
the toddler who would like to be in a 'big' bed but isn't totally confident about being out of a cot.
Although we are 'on Disney's doorstep', we have tried to strike a balance in the decoration of our home. While the Disney bedroom and surrounding
areas have lots of Disney links, we have kept the main living areas 'Disney-free' since not everyone who visits Orlando is 'Mouse-obsessed'. We hope our guests appreciate
Care for the Environment
We have made a start in our contribution to 'saving the planet', after realising that we have more than 60 light bulbs throughout the villa!
All bathroom lights (30 of them!) have now been changed to low energy bulbs, using a quarter of the electricity they used to use. They also produce less heat, making it more comfortable for guests and allowing the air conditioning to work more efficiently.
As other bulbs throughout the home need replacing, low energy equivalents will be used.
Our decorative garden lights are all solar powered.
