About this listing
That is the real Big Sand Lake, one of Florida's purest natural lakes you see in the picture and the breathtaking Sunset (Sunrise too!) from the Villa's living room and patio. The gated complex is self-contained with a restaurant, consistently voted as one of the best ribs and seafood restaurants in Orlando. The complex also has a deli, espresso- salad bar, and Pizza Hut. After visiting the Theme Parks, guests can also enjoy DVD rentals, tennis courts, full service spa & gym (for a fee).
With the world famous International Drive, Convention Center, outlet shopping, bookstores with coffee shops and free wifi, movie theatres, dining and nightlife nearby, there is always something to do.
The Villa is located in the upscale Dr. Philipps area of Orlando, right in the middle of the 3 main Theme Parks - Disney, Universal, and Sea World.
Our villa is privately owned and managed. No timeshare presentation is involved as we are not part of the Westgate timeshares.
Our Lakefront Villa offers the comforts of your own home as a preferred alternative to a hotel room and lets you live in your own 2-storey garden-style townhouse. The Villa is tastefully decorated with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths, 3 Queen-size beds that sleep 6 comfortably , a patio, a covered balcony, a living room, a fully equipped kitchenette with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, cookware, dishes and utensils. Linens, towels and starter supplies are provided.
In addition to better value, more than a hotel, there is complete privacy, the liberty to be able to prepare your own meals at your leisure and more living space. As our returning guest year after year wrote: "our kids enjoy their own loft apartment upstairs."

The place is wonderful. My mother and my boy love it. We can take a walk by the lake side in the morning. We could enjoy the fireworks which are on the other side of the lake. It is very convenient and near to Disneyland, restaurants, and other places. If you have a car, you could have a very enjoyable time here.
Great first month! Gloria and Maria are always willing to help with any problems. I look forward to the rest of my time here.
We had a great stay at the villa! It was a smooth check-in with excellent directions from the airport and space for parking. The home was great and on two levels to allow for some privacy for our group. The lake is pretty and a good place to relax after a long day at the parks. We also were able to cook a few small meals in the kitchen, which had pots, pans and utensils. Overall a great stay!
We were able to communicate very effectively over the phone via texts, voice messages and emails. It worked out great!
We enjoyed our stay at Orlando Lakefront Villa. This immaculate 2-story condo was spacious, quiet, and convenient to I-4 and Sand Lake Boulevard's "Restaurant Row." This would be the perfect place for a vacationing family -- the location is central to most of Orlando's theme parks and other attractions. Our hostess, Gloria, provided very complete and easy-to-follow driving directions and check-in/out instructions. All in all, Orlando Lakefront Villa is a great value.
