Sunset Lakes or Highgrove. Canít decide!

Please could you tell me the pros (and any cons) of each. There are lovely villas that tick all our boxes on both.

Sunset lakes is a fantastic location especially if your villa backs on to one of the ponds. So close to WDW and the attractions/shops/restaurants on the 192.

We stayed at this Dibb owned villa:

I would definitely stay there again!

We also stayed there in 2019, and have rebooked.
Waking up to the lake with vultures, cranes, egrets just outside the door was a lovely sight each day. Really easy to get out onto the 192 from there, and also not far from a Walmart.

Another vote for sunset lakes. We stayed at shamu villa, a dibb villa, in 2018 and have rebooked for next year. Close to several shops, restaurants and Walmart etc, nice gated community with a little Dock to fish off or watch disney fireworks. The villa is right on the lake and very quiet and we spent many a very peaceful hour floating in the big pool watching bald eagles fly overhead and beautiful sunsets from the hot tub. Feels very safe and was very quiet and the management company are excellent. The owners have been incredible given we changed our booking 3 times, will never stay anywhere else.

We've stayed there before as well and could not fault it. Best villa and location we've stayed in. Would book Sunset Lakes and this villa again in a heartbeat.

We have stayed at two Dibb villas in Highgrove for the past 4 trips and have booked to go back again in 2022. You can read my reviews.

We love the location - so handy for Walmart (within walking distance), Publix, Denny's and the rest of the eateries etc on the 192. There is a lovely lake you can walk around. Highgrove itself is a lovely gated community. Kept exceptionally clean and the clubhouse staff are very helpful and friendly. We love it there and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in the Orlando area.

We stayed at Sunset Lakes in a "Dibb villa" booked last-minute for a stay over half-term in February 2019.

It was a good location and I'd stay there again, certainly.

we've also stayed at villa aurora at sunset lakes. The best villa we've ever stayed in, sue is super helpful.

You really can't beat sunset lakes for its position, how quiet and relaxing it is and the view over the lake.

Only reason i don't like recommending the place is because we love it so much and sues villa gets booked up really quickly lol
