Area Information

The Retreat By The Lake is located on a tree-lined street in the quiet gated community of Sunset Lakes. This location is a true oasis in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. Whether you’ve just Mickeyed your way through the Magic Kingdom, flown a Banshee at Animal Kingdom, or spent the day on the links converting that 96 into a 69, you can return through the gates of this well-established community into a peaceful, serene environment where you have your own spacious villa at a fraction of the cost of a 5-star hotel. Sunset Lakes is well populated with wildlife. Ducks, Ibis, Sandhill Cranes, Eagles, and Osprey are common. “Catch and Release” fishing is allowed on the fish stocked lakes. Limited fishing gear is available at The Retreat.
When staying at The Retreat, one can be lulled into believing that you are in the country far away from it all. You wouldn't suspect that you are just minutes away from the theme parks and the stores / restaurants of Kissimmee. Grocery, big box and drug stores are also just minutes away. Everyone who visits The Retreat and Sunset Lakes is impressed by the peaceful tranquility of the neighbourhood and the lake. Other vacation home communities close to the theme parks cannot offer you this combination.

Owner Info

Karen and Mike Billings

Karen and Mike Billings

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are retired civil servants from Ottawa Canada. We spend our winters at the Retreat By The Lake. When we are not there we enjoy sharing our winter homes with guests. We also manage the rentals for Mike's sister's villa, The Lake House at Sunset Lakes which is only a few doors down from The Retreat By The Lake. We believe in providing villas that we ourselves would be willing to stay in (in fact we do).

Why this property? We decided to look for a vacation property in 2010. We saw about 15 villa's in one day. But as soon as the agent pulled upon the blinds to the sliding doors overlooking the lake - That was it. This place as sunshine, pool, lake, close proximity to Disney. It has everything
