We have been many times to Orlando, always to villas - Aurora villa was superb! very thoughtfully equipped - with many ponchos (which sadly we needed), baby equipment, games room was well equipped too and even had air conditioning unit and stereo! so made for pleasant evenings playing various games. We were amazed to see all the different size and styles of Disney princess dresses in the 'disney' bedroom wardrobe - our granddaughter would have loved them! It was a very comfortable villa, felt like home from home - the DVDs proved useful too. Our only hiccup was the wonderful looking bed in the main bedroom - it was so soft and bouncy we moved to another to sleep (but that was not a problem of the villa, but our preference). The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need. Loved the brand new washer and dryer in the garage! state of the art! The view over the lake was unbeatable and south facing so wonderful sun all day, the sheltered area provided useful when the showers came, could still sit out enjoying the warmth and rain/storm! We would definitely recommend Aurora Villa, with the four bedrooms easily could accommodate a family or two! Owner Sue was brilliant, making contact just after we arrived to check we were happy with the villa and that all was ok and had we been affected by the hurricane which had just passed. So very thoughtful. Wouldn't hesitate to return!

Review by wayne from chesterfield
Sunset Lakes is an idyllic location to return to after the hustle and bustle of the theme parks when plenty of rest and relaxation are required. To sit by the pool with a cold beer or chilled wine looking out over the lake was my idea of heaven.

Hi Sue...February 2015
Thank you so much for renting us your lovely villa. it was just perfect and had everything we could wish for. we loved its position and spent many happy times watching the antics of the wildlife in and around the lake.
we loved the pool. it was so warm and spacious and the lights in the evening were an added bonus
now that we are back to reality we are already dreaming up ways of affording to book an even longer trip next time and will be back in touch when we have worked out how to do it!

many thanks once again, yours is definitely the best villa we have ever stayed in and the first that we are actively planning to return to.

review from a Dibber who stayed for Xmas 2011/12

We have just returned from a four week stay in this beautiful villa and we’re already looking forward to the next time we visit. As someone in the tourism industry I can usually be quite critical of the accommodation we stay in but there was absolutely nothing negative about this property. It is lovely, clean and spacious with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. My kids loved the pool and it was lovely that even in December they could play in it whenever they liked (pool heat is an extra but I can highly recommend it) – no hassle about having to pack a bag with towels etc and having to go down to the pool to fight for a sunbed. The kitchen is fitted with everything you could possibly need – I managed to cook a full Christmas dinner with no problem at all. Another useful thing we found were the tupperware boxes etc which we used to take picnics on days when we didn’t visit the parks. The location of the villa is great. It is extremely easy to find from the airport – took us just under 25mins from Orlando International. Literally 10 minutes away from the Disney entrance signs with several shops and restaurants within a 5 minute drive yet the area is sooooo quiet. It really was the perfect, relaxing holiday. The service we received from Susan was excellent. Lots of communication before we went to make sure that all our questions were answered and lots of tips about things we could look forward to plus emails whilst we were there just to make sure that everything was ok – nothing seems too much trouble for her. Nothing I could write will do this Villa justice – all I can really say is try it for yourselves – I know you will have a fab time. "

And another

Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful villa for our wonderful holiday, we had the most amazing 3 weeks. What a comedown it is returning to a cold and wet England, i'm full of a cold and its straight back to work etc. When we arrived at Villa Aurora the first thing i did was to open up the sliding door near the dining table and walk out onto the pool deck - wow what a beautiful setting, it took my breath away, peaceful, tranquil just as descibed on your website. The children couldnt wait to jump in the pool and they loved their bedrooms and the games room also.
We found the information in the folders useful, the shotcut through Sherberth Road to Disney was great and some of the restaurants that were recomended we loved. Longhorn Steaks are the best!

We drove to Kennedy Space Centre and also to Redington Shores, so we covered some miles. We felt so at home at your villa we all got quite upset on the day we had to leave. Thankyou once again.

Review from Dibber Richard Robinson...Hayes 37... "we stayed for a week in sept 09... wish it could have been longer,... lovely villa, surperb area... everything you need plus more... overall exellent week...

Another Dibber June 2010
"The villa was everything we expected and hoped for, a real home from home. Everything was spot on and the location of the villa could not have been better, a lovely peaceful retreat yet close enough to most parks and restaurants.

Thank you once again for making your lovely villa available and hopefully we will return sometime in the future.. loved it ... will return soon"

First week in June 2010
We had a fabulous holiday and loved your gorgeous villa - thank you so much for letting us stay there. We spent our first week at Port Orleans Disney hotel and although it was very nice we won't be rushing back. When we arrived at your place we felt so much more relaxed and enjoyed our 2nd week so much more. The location is great isn't it - so quick to Disney and everything else on your doorstep too.

We also spent a night at the Royal Pacific Resort over at Universal doing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter package and the two Universal parks. That was great - lovely hotel and a quick stroll to the parks and Front of Line passes etc. We'd probably do that again for a night but would definitely spend the rest of our time in a villa. The Harry Potter stuff was fab - my son Max was blown away by it all.

Thanks for all your emails and helpful information, it really helped us settle in quickly.

Anyway thanks again, we really did have a lovely time (and the kids adored their rooms). Now I just need to start saving and convince hubby we can return again soon!

On Tuesday March 31, 11:33 AM, Terry Murphy ( said, Just returned from a March 2009 stay... FABULOUS home, so well equipped and maintained.Disney parks are less than 15 minutes away. I am recommending this home to my friends. This is a perfect choice for a large family stay. We travel often and are not easily impressed. Wonderful!

Review submitted by Rene from Loosbroek, The Nettherlands(Submitted: 31/05/2009 )Review for: Villa Aurora at Sunset Lakes (33518)

"We stayed in Villa Aurora from 25th April till 9th of May 2009. We had a great time in the villa. There is a lot of space and all the amenities you need are there. The personal approach and tips from the owner Sue made it extra special. The pool was of course the best buy for our children. We sometimes had to drag them out the pool to visit some of the highlights of Florida. The villa is just a few minutes drive from the Disney parks and the I-192 but is very quiet and peaceful."

Value: Good , Met expectations: Yes - satisfied , Recommend: Definitely , Overall: Excellent

The pool area is well furnished with high quality gear and the pool itself is plenty big enough and very well maintained. I have already recommended it to a friend and we are planning to return next year."
