to be fair in 2012 we stayed at emerald island which has actual security guards and the gate and another villa on the community was broken into even with that. a break in at sunset lakes, whilst upsetting isn't a reflection on the community. Like here it can happen anywhere, even communities with security 24/7.

we've stayed there twice and its our favourite out of all the places we have stayed in florida, close to everything, including the parks and restaurants but a peaceful haven after long days at the parks.

If you read back through the thread, you will see I said it wouldnt put us off staying there again. We still really like Sunset Lakes.
Any home could be broken into at anytime, home or away. It didnt affect our holiday at all.
We probably wouldnt stay in the same villa again but it is no longer listed as a dibb villa and I prefer to book our accommodation via the villa list here.
Im actually looking at Sunset Lakes for our trip next year.

i did read that i just wanted to balance the thread a bit for anyone looking for a villa. Didn't want people thinking villa break ins are a regular occurrence or more of an issue at sunset lakes than anywhere else.

We have stayed on Sunset Lakes a number of times. Great location, lovely views over the lakes and secure gated community. Currently on the lookout for a villa for next August and really struggling - lots of organised Disney people

Stayed in Sunset Lakes in 2017 and would happily stay again. Great location for restaurants and parks. Lovely setting and Villa Aurora was perfect. Cannot praise it enough.

We'll be making our 3rd trip to sunset lakes in May. We have been.lucky to stay in a lovely DIBB villa that looks into the small lake and nothing better than sitting our on the pool deck in the morning with your coffee watching the lake and wildlife. We've even been lucky enough to see hot air balloons fly over. Found it easy enough to navigate to Disney, universal and supermarkets close by. We think it's the perfect location.
