We stayed at Simba's Sunset last weekend and it was everything it was advertised to be. Nice big bedrooms, nice decor and a fully stocked kitchen with any cookware or utensil you could ever need. We had two family's …..and the kids LOVED the game room. They also loved the bunk beds and the fact that they had their own TV. It was so nice to come "home" to a private pool and hot tub after being around throngs of strangers all day in Disney. We would recommend to anyone and will stay here again. Gorgeous!

We stayed here in Feb 2012. Your house was amazing. We loved it. The pool and Hot tub were great. Our kids loved the game room. And there was plenty of space for our family. We come to Formosa gardens every year. This house is our first choice. Thank you.

Our entire experience with Mickey Homes and Simba's Sunset was wonderful. The reservation was simple and we found it a little less expensive than some of the other rental companies. Our group of 12 was able to spread out and get comfy in this spacious home. We even had one room that went unused. We loved coming back to this house after a day at the parks to swim, relax and play video games. There were so many game systems! The kids didn't even play them all! The location is perfect, only minutes from the Disney parks but also close to restaurants and stores. Our experience with Lucy and Mickey Homes was superb. All e-mails leading up to the reservation were responded to immediately. When a smoke alarm battery beeped during our stay, management came out right away and took care of it. And when we accidentally left something behind when we departed, Lucy went to the home right away to retrieve it and mail it to me. We are 100% satisfied. Thanks for a great vacation!

This beautiful home was the perfect place for our vacation. Simba's Sunset had everything your family and friends would need to make your Disney vacation. The home was very clean and very roomy. The kitchen has everything you would need for those home-cooked meals. My 3 teenage boys loved the game room and all the games. The pool and hot-tub was a wonderful way to end a long day. It was a great location to everything we wanted to do. We will be back again.
This was our first trip to Disney World. It was a Great vacation. Thanks to Mickey Homes and staff. Alan LaFrance was wonderful. We rented a 3 bedroom town home which was suppose to have internet but did not. With-in 30 minutes Alan had us in a HUGE up-grade at a BEAUTIFUL CLEAN Home. I have 3 teenage sons that loved the home. We give Simba's Sunset and Mickey Homes an EXCELLENT!! rating. We will be back and will be staying with MICKEY HOMES. Thanks again

Stayed at this villa for a week in September 2011 and found it to be an excellent choice. It was clean, tidy and the air conditioning worked really well (seperate controls upstairs and downstairs). This villa is ideal for teens as it has more playstations and Wii's than I've ever seen in any one house.....two wii's in the games room, a playstation and 3 tvs ! Cooking facilities were excellent and well stocked with crockery and utensils. Pool and hot tub were fantastic and that area got sun from about 9:30 am till evening. The gated entrance made us feel safe and the location is very well situated in that respect. There are some decent restaurants nearby which are very reasonably priced. All in all we had a fantastic time with this villa as our base and I would highly recommend it. All dealings I had with Lucy were dealt with very promptly and efficiently. The only negative we had on our trip was our car hire with Dollar which was hugely in excess of the price we had booked it online for. The online price did not include the $400 approx weekly insurance costs.....lesson learned there.

The stay at Simba's Sunset was very nice. We stayed Mothers Day weekend and we had a wonderful family time. The house was spacious and everything was comfortable enough room for everyone. The neighborhood was very quiet. I will recommend this property.

We were three families of four with 6 adults and six kids ages 2-16 and everybody loved Simba's Sunset. The exterior pool area is very private and the interior layout worked perfectly for us. One family took the upstairs, one took the master and front kids bedroom and we took the front suite and the double room in back for our daughter and her friend. This meant everyone had their own space when they needed it. The pool and spa area are a little smaller than they appear in the photos but still plenty of room for everyone to enjoy and it was comforting to know that the little kids were always close by when enjoying the pool. Lots of sun in the pool area but the lanai was great for relaxing in the shade with a cool drink. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Lucy was great to deal with as well, prompt with emails, courteous in demeanor, and made the transaction very smooth. A special thanks to Dee at the property management company who guided me through fixing a stuck garbage disposal and for fixing the pool lights in record time. Overall this is an excellent property and its located close to everything we needed during our stay. It was very close to all the Disney parks and just a short drive to Seaworld and Outlet shopping. Many thanks for letting us enjoy your lovely home. I have already recommended it to friends and look forward to staying there again on our next Florida vacation.

We just spent two weeks in this home and are very satisfied with our decision to rent this vacation home. The location was ideal for our family and we couldn't believe how quiet the area was. The pool and spa area is surrounded by trees and a fence so you have a sense of privacy. We enjoyed the tv that was located outside next to the pool and were delighted that we could watch the season finale of "The Walking Dead" without having to go inside. Initially, when we first arrived here were some issues with the pool and spa heat not working properly, however, the property management team were very helpful and did their best to rectify the situation as soon as possible. We had two children under the age of two staying with us and we really appreciated the use of the stroller and playpen. We had a beautiful time in Orlando and really enjoyed our time at Simba's Sunset.

We are 8 male golfers who come annually to the Orlando area in early March for 9 days of golf and relaxation. This was the first time we stayed at Simba’s Sunset, but it will not be the last. Of all of the homes we’ve rented over the past 15 or so years, this one far outshined all of the others, and that’s a rave, because some of the others were very nice too. The home is great for golfers – especially if you enjoy cooking your own meals, as we do.
The kitchen was well equipped, with a great lineup of appliances. I wish I had the stove and refrigerator in my kitchen at home, and the accoutrements in the kitchen were more than adequate. We were able to pull both of our vehicles off the street and up near the garage/game room, where we were able to easily unload our clubs for the night – groceries too. The pools, and particularly the heated spa, were well used and appreciated by the group. The gated community was something we have not had before, and the area is ideal for taking a nice walk.
Suffice to say that we enjoyed everything about this home, and we would recommend it to anyone, but it is ideally suited for a group of 8 golfers. We have already blocked out our dates for 2014.

We had a great time. The house was beautiful, clean, and large enough to accommodate 4 families. Disney was less than a 10 minute drive daily. The neighborhood was well maintained. Our kids loved the extra-large hot tub and pool.
-- Jessica Acebo, Coral Gables, FL - February 25th 2013
The rental home we stayed in for our family vacation was wonderful. The whole process was smooth and effortless. Everyone was so helpful and quickly got back to me with answers to my questions. I would definitely stay here on another trip to Florida.
-- Sarah Marsden, McKinney, TX - December 12th 2012
We had a group of 11 including 4 children and found the house to be perfect. It was clean and furnished well. The location was great for all the parks. The pool and hot tub were very nice after a long day at the parks. We would definitely return.
-- Betsy Landers, Hebron, CT - November 28th 2012
We have spent a very enjoyable three weeks at Simba's Sunset. This villa is situated in Formosa Gardens which is a delightful gated community. The villa was spacious even with twelve adults staying there and was very convenient for all the parks. Lucy also done a great job making sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. Highly recommended...thanks
-- Paul Clark, Kent, UK - October 26th 2012
This home was absolutely perfect for us. We were 12 people from Norway, we had an amazing time. Very peaceful and relaxing community. Great distance to all attractions. We will definitely book this home again.
-- Tommy Hartvigsen, Torvastad, Norway - July 30th 2012
We booked this home for a family vacation/anniversary celebration and absolutely loved this property. Our party consisted of 13 people ranging in ages 13-71. The Disney parks were all within a short drive and there were dozens of restaurants within a couple miles. The home is very well maintained, well-furnished and most importantly, clean. The kitchen was spacious and equipped with everything we needed. All of the bedrooms were comfortable, roomy, well-furnished and had more closet space than we needed. Having an washer and dryer was convenient which allowed us to pack light and just do a mid-week cleaning of our clothing. The master suite is enormous and exceptionally comfortable. Our favorite area was the pool and whirlpool where we spend many afternoons and evenings. There is nothing like watching a ball game on an outdoor HDTV while sitting in a whirlpool. We would have no reservations returning to this home or recommending to friends and family. It was also a great pleasure working with Lucy Clark who was a great help assuring all of our needs were met.

My family recently stayed at Simba's Sunset located in Formosa Gardens. The house is located in a upscale gated community with lots of space between houses. Located within 8 minutes to Disney World, within minutes to Publix grocery and Target plus oodles of restaurants in the area, it is a perfect spot. The house is large and had everything a family would want on a holiday. The pool and hot tub are nice sizes to accommodate the whole family. The kitchen was well stocked and the oven is powered by gas which I think is a bonus over an electric range. Without a question Simba's Sunset is a excellent choice for your family for a Disney holiday.
