The Location was excellent for us as we wanted to take in the Disney properties and Sea World!! The home was clean and accommodated all our needs in a very quiet neighbor. Plenty of restaurants for dining close to the house. I would recommend this home to anyone with a family or party of 6/8. Thank you, Joanna, for the stay.

We had a wonderful stay in Joanna’s home. I definitely recommend this home when visiting Orlando parks and attractions. Restaurants and stores are nearby, the location is excellent. We were a family of 10 and well accommodated. The townhome is beautiful and spacious. The pool was great and clean. Joanna was very helpful and on point getting everything ready for us on such short notice, we rented the townhome a day before arriving to Orlando.

The home was lovely and we would stay here again. The responsiveness of the home owner was amazing. Unfortunately the blender broke while we were there. I contacted the home owner in the morning and by the time we came home from Disney that day a new blender was at the home. Very responsive, thank you!

Can not say enough about the lovely owners, their spectacular home and the location. We were in Orlando with family and property was very centrally located to all parks, activities, etc. The owners were so lovely to rent from, they answered your questions immediately and were so accommodating. Their home was furnished beautifully, kitchen well stocked to cook in, bedroom beds were comfortable, and very nicely decorated. We enjoyed the pool and the safety features on the doors were a plus as we were traveling with our 5 year old granddaughter. Look no further if looking for a spacious beautiful home to rent.

Anna Y April 15, 2018 Tropical Paradise Villa August 13, 2018
We truly enjoyed this beautiful home. Location is awesome. It was everything we imagined. The weather was perfect for an October Disney Vacation. Great home that we would love to stay at again in the future and will recommend to family and friends.
Kimberly Murfeesboro, TN Stayed October 4 to 10, 2015 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
We stayed at Sunset Palms for 2 weeks in April 2018. It was the perfect base for our family to enjoy all the theme parks yet still relax in the Florida sunshine. The property is well equipped, spacious and nicely furnished. We would definitely recommend the villa and the Encantada Resort. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home xxx
Hanna B April 2, 2018 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
Our family of 8 went down to Disney for a week long baseball tournament and staying at the house was perfect! The location to everything was perfect. The pool was just the right size for our kids to have some downtime and me and my husband enjoyed sitting out there at night for adult time. The house was nicely furnished and clean. Overall we had a terrific experience and coming back to the house after long days outside in the heat was a God send. Thank you for allowing us to rent your home! We have nothing but terrific memories from our time there!!
Zoe S July 5, 2018 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
We had a wide mix of people staying in the home (from 7-70 years old) and the home was perfect for us! The size was just right! It allowed each to have their own bedroom for personal time, and plenty of room to hang out together. The pool was great, and was enjoyed by everyone! We were in town for a wrestling tournament being held at the ESPN Center at Disney. We were less than 4 miles away and the route was very easy to get there. So location was perfect!! And we were amazingly close to most of the Disney parks!! But more importantly than all of that, the owners were amazing!! The very quick and thorough communication is what will have us looking at this house for our next trip!! We never had to wait long and always got the answers needed! We will definitely be back and I would recommend this place to all my family and friends!!
Sabrina S June 2018 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
Convenience location, close to Disney parks, restaurants and stores. My kids fell in love with the pool and game room! Thank you very much, Joanna, for always being available for all my questions, looking forward for a next time!
Yurida N July 2018 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
Since this was our second stay, it remains unsaid that we love this place. While we are in our 70’s and not much interested Disney and such, the location for us is ideal. You are 1-1/2 to 2 hours from the water, either the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico. My wife’s brother and his wife were with us most of the time. They are from Winnipeg, Manitoba (referred to as Winterpeg). We wanted to get a break from winter in Pennsylvania (which this year has not been much) and it was a welcome break. We have quite a few friends who live or winter in Florida, the central location of the house makes it ideal. Any problems we experienced were handled quickly. If we travel to Florida again in the future and this house is available we will definitely stay here again.
David W Muncy, Pennsylvania Stayed January 27, 2017, to February 14, 2017 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
Thank you for sharing your home and for being so accommodating of all our request. Your home and the private pool was so much better than staying in a hotel room. We 100% recommend your rental and give it and you a 5-star rating!!
Deborah T Pittsburgh Stayed June 27, 2017 to July 4, 2017 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Palms Retreat. The home had excellent facilities, with all you would need for a vacation in the sun. Being just off the 192 highway it is within easy reach of all the theme parks. There is a wide selection of places to eat nearby or super markets should you wish to eat in.

Excellent location. Perfectly clean. Very responsive owner. The website descriptions are accurate, which is not always the case! We would not hesitate to go back.

We had a great stay at the Allen condo. The facility was the perfect size for four adults and a child. The home was well laid out. The pool connected to the condo was idea for morning swims and after visiting parks during the day. It was in a great location, very close to grocery stores and places to eat as well as Disney parks. Universal was just down the road as well. The home was clean and equipped with items we needed for our stay.We appreciate the family sharing their place with us for our trip to Orlando.

What a beautiful Vacation Home! Very clean! Had everything we needed! Our girls loved the pool! It was a very responsible price for all the rooms that it had. Prefect Location to all the Parks, but yet away from all the busy shops. We loved it!! Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
Stayed September 18, 2016 to September 24, 2016 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
We were so pleased with our stay at Sunset Palms! The home is exactly as presented in the pictures. Having the private pool was a huge perk when returning from the parks. We also enjoyed the pools at the Encantada clubhouse. Joanna was very communicative and helpful. We will stay there again when our travels take us to Orlando!
Dale Gregory Stayed September 3, 2016 to September 14, 2016 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
We stayed at Tropical Paradise Villa for our Summer 2016 holiday. Joanna and David were fantastic. They kept in regular contact with us before the holiday with updates. The villa is great family base so close to Disney with lots of amenities near by. The villa was clean and tidy with all household essentials. There was lots of little postcards with handy hints and tips around the villa. I would have no problems recommending Tropical Paradise Villa or the Allen family. We look forward to visiting again.
Amy Bowes Stayed August 17, 2016 to September 4, 2016 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
The proximity to Disney World was fantastic and having the pool right out back was a huge hit. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, roomy with all the amenities needed for a long term stay. The bedrooms were good size and the bathrooms are good size for 8 people. The entrance to the property makes you feel like you are going into a resort area, and the options for restaurants, shopping and attractions are all within 10 minutes. The overall property was very clean, well kept, and you felt like you had your own space. If you have a large family or a group of friends, this location and the size of the house is perfect.
Nancy Stayed May 17 to May 25, 2014 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
Our whole family was amazed at what we got for our money at this house. We normally stay in hotels in the Disney area but decided to try something different in the hope of not having to put up with the cramped quarters, and wow, were we pleased with the difference. Lots of room for everyone, a full kitchen and living room. And if that was not exciting enough, the heated pool at the end of a long day was exquisite to relax in. I would recommend this place to anyone going to the Disney area.
DJ Stayed March 14 to March 22, 2014 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
The home was very comfortable for 7 adults—we even pushed 2 single beds together to form a king bed. Our grown kids even commented that ” mom you did a great job finding this place”—always great to hear. Close to conveniences and to the parks. Wonderful to come home and relax in the pool! The cable and internet went out and I needed another set of sheets and Joanna was extremely quick to get that taken care of. You can really feel that the Allen family is committed to making sure their guests are taken care of. Highly recommended to everyone.
LK Northfield, Ohio Stayed April 17 to April 26, 2015 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay wish it had been longer! The location was very central with supermarkets and restaurant nearby and the clubhouse if you fancied eating on site. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated – future renter won’t be disappointed. Check in was so easy and the staff very helpful especially when we wanted to book Blue Man tickets they called Universal directly for us and passed the phone over. Thanks again Karen
Karen Glasgow,Scotland,UK Stayed April 25 to April 30, 2015 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
Tidy and clean villa on Emerald Island which is a lovely resort very close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The lounge furniture is of good quality. I found Joanna (the owner) very helpful and responsive and would recommend the villa for a single family who want to be close to the Disney area.
Michelle Leicester, England Stayed August 19 to September 3, 2015 Tropical Paradise Villa August 12, 2018
The house is spectacular. We spent excellent days. The house is warm, full and optimal location. Joanna hosts are friendly.
Marcella, Brazil Stayed December 1 to 10, 2015 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
Nice property in a good resort, not far from the Disney parks (15mins max). Decent small pool at property and a good sized pool at the communal area. Car really is essential to get around freely but nothing we visited was much more than 30mins drive away. Owners very helpful to fix a minor problem whilst we were staying. Would come back and certainly recommend to others.
Graeme Aberdeen, UK Stayed October 11 to 24, 2015 Sunset Palms Retreat August 12, 2018
We’ve stayed at homes in the Kissimmee area in the past and it worked out well but this was the best. The house is nicely decorated, has everything you need and the kids loved the pool. The house is convenient to stores, restaurants and is only about 5-10 minutes to the Disney entrance. Joanna was very helpful and Villa Direct very professional. Thanks for a great vacation.
