Third time we have stayed here at Kathryn's lovely Villa and it's just as good as previous visits.
Previously we have stayed in July / August (busiest time), but this year chose August / September (including Labour Day) which was ideal as it was a bit quieter, albeit still very warm (despite a few thunderstorms)
What we like best about this gated community villa is that it is nice and secluded but only a short drive (or walk if your feeling energetic) from all the shops, restaurants and gift stores etc.
Since we were here last year, there has been quite a bit of development just down the road but the entrance road to the estate (Styles Boulevard) could do with a tidy up (there was graffiti on most of the road signs) and the walkway behind the estate to RaceTrac is now quite overgrown and with no lighting is not recommended anymore (could do with a proper path and some lighting).
Having said all that the villa is just the job for a nice relaxing break, as this year we didn't do the theme parks, apart from Animal Kingdom and our first trip to Gatorland and spent more time around the pool.
Still went down to St Pete to watch the Rays (easily accessible from the 27 down onto the I4).
Only thing I would say about the Villa is that the poolside walls need repainting and sooner or later the Lanai will need a new mesh as there are one or two holes beginning to show.
All in all we had another lovely time and hopefully will be back again next year.
This was our 4th stay at the sunrise villa. We found the villa to be just as good as the 1st visit. The new beds are very comfy and the rooms look refreshed with the new furniture. Its very private, not over looked by anyone. Perfect location for shops and the theme parks. We can not recommend this villa high enough. Cant wait to plan our next stay.
We stayed here for 3 weeks and had an amazing time, the villa is lovely and clean with everything you could need and more, its location is great only 2 mins from 192 and close to all theme parks and Walmart just up the 192. The pool is great and gets the sun more or less all day. We had an issue with the air con, but once reported was sorted and all fine. Seeing previous reviews the mattresses must have been replaced because I slept no problems at all. I would recommend this villa to anyone you will not be disappointed.
This was our second time at the villa, after staying there last year for two weeks we rebooked again for this year for a three week stay and were not disappointed.
The villa is laid out around the pool area, which is visible from all rooms so ideal if you want to keep an eye on children. The area is private and not overlooked at all. The property is nicely furnished and the kitchen well equipped, the beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels and linens.
The gated community is beautifully kept and although only a short distance from a main road is very quiet. It is an easy journey to the theme parks and other attractions in the area.
Kathryn, the owner, is extremely helpful, any questions are answered promptly and out deposit was returned within days.
I would recommend this villa and would definitely stay there again if we return to Florida.
Just got back from Sunrise Villa, there is a lot I can say about the Villa, but it all boils down to...
Would I book it again - Oh yes
Would I recommend it - yes
