Very sorry to hear that

I did comment myself that I felt the gated element only added an illusion of security. It would take very little to tailgate someone in.

Additionally I've just searched for "Sunset Lakes gate code" and got a correct result first time.

It was unfortunate but it can happen anywhere - wouldnt put us off staying there again though. We still love the location.

Stayed last summer and loved it, quiet and great villa overlooking lake. Re gates/security yes its easy to tail some1 in as I did several times but our villa was secure and I think youd be unlucky if anything happened aspose to it being a bad area. Brilliant for access to Disney /shops and restaurants

The incident to which you refer, a couple of years ago, was a rare event
however we have cameras on the gates and he was caught and is now serving a stiff sentence...
it is usually very quiet...and the lakes, many properties have a panoramic view, are very calming and give a feeling of space and privacy
Happy villa hunting!

Just curious as to how you know details of the incident as I dont remember sharing anything about it here? Also without detracting from Sunset Lakes, we were told by the sheriff that it wasnt an isolated incident.
Im glad he was caught.
