Sun Lake Vacation Rentals

Sun Lake - A vacation Rental Condominium Gated Resort

Sun Lake Resort in Kissimmee, Florida is a small gated, mid-priced vacation rental community located close to the Disney parks. The homes at Sun Lake are two, three and four bedroom condominiums ranging in size from 1,250 to 1,700 sq.ft. Although, not as expansive as some of the other more expensive resorts nearby, Sun Lake's clubhouse features a community heated pool with a sun deck and hot tub and a state of the art fitness center. Also, at only 15 minute's drive from Orlando's Disney World®, the resort is certainly worth considering.

Staying at Sun Lake

Sun Lake is located to south of Highway 192, making it one of the closest resorts to Disney World®. The 4,000 sq. ft. clubhouse here features a heated resort style swimming pool surrounded by a sun deck and with an adjacent Jacuzzi spa. The sun deck is furnished with a large number of sun loungers and other pool furniture. The clubhouse and the area around it, provides a host of recreational activities for all ages including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a tennis court, and a small games room.

The homes on this modern resort community offer a good standard of accommodations and have 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms and either 2 or 3 bathrooms. The condominiums also all come fully furnished with a well equipped kitchen, large family/dining rooms and have enclosed furnished balconies. The Sun lake vacation rental condominiums should be supplied with everything needed for a memorable vacation.

Reaching the Attractions from Sun Lake

In 2016, 113 million tourists journeyed to Florida. This was up over 7% on the previous year. Interestingly, 98 million of those were domestic tourists coming from other parts of the America. Truly remarkable figures, but, whilst there are some spectacular beaches and all year round sunshine, the majority of tourists travel from all corners of the planet to come to see a certain talking mouse at Disney World®.

Over the past six decades, Disney and the other large corporations behind the theme parks have propelled Orlando on to become a world leader in mass tourism. The city's theme parks are the primary force behind that unparalleled improvement in fortunes for the city. Theme parks are big business in Central Florida and they're spread geographically across Orlando and down to Busch Gardens in Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Sun Lake. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is achievable on a day out. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The following driving times are approximate, but they give an indication of the convenience of staying in vacation rental home at Sun Lake:

Disney World® Parks - 15+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 20 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 20 Minutes
Legoland - 25 Minutes
Universal Studios - 30 Minutes
Fantasy of Flight - 40 Minutes
Adventure Island, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 90 Minutes

Golfing Around Sun Lake

As you would expect from a destination that hangs its hat on family fun, Orlando is overflowing with casual, kid and beginner-friendly places to play golf. A golf experience here can be whatever you need it to be. If you're a beginner looking to sharpen your skills, there's a course for you, and if you're a pro looking to test your talent on a wide range of different and challenging layouts, there are several courses for you. Whatever your skillset is, Orlando offers visitors an exclusive golfing experience not found anywhere in the world. You might like to try some of the golf courses below which are near Sun Lake:

Restaurants and Shops near Sun Lake

With millions of people traveling to Orlando/Kissimmee/davenport/Clermont each year, it's not overly surprising to find that the area around Disney World® and Universal Studios is packed with restaurants and fast food outlets. And the area near Sun Lake is no different. If you drive out from the community you'll soon come across various eateries. But with Sun lake being located just yards from Highway 192, there are literally dozens of resturants just minutes away from the resort. These include: Applebee's, Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza , Golden Corral, IHOP, Logan's Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Manny's Original Chophouse, Miller's Ale House, Olive Garden, On The Border, Outback Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Perkins, Pollo Tropical, Ponderosa, Red LobsterSizzler, Shoneys, Sweet Tomatoes, Tarantino's Italian, Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is by no means exhaustive.

If you'd prefer to grab something to take out then there's plenty of choice in that situation as well. This includes Arby's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, CiCi's Pizza, Cordovano Joe's Pizza , Crown Fried Chicken, Domino's Pizza, DQ Grill and Chill, KFC, Long John Silver's, McDonalds, Panda Express, Pizza Hut, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and Wendy's.

Supermarkets
If eating at home is on the menu, then you'll have to find a supermarket nearby. Staying in a vacation rental at Sun Lake makes that relatively straightforward as there are four large supermarkets (Winn Dixie, Walmart, Publix and Target) within a short drive of the community. So, when you make a last minute decision to have that BBQ, you'll always be able to pick up the supplies needed.

Other Shopping
If you're looking for something outside of supermarket shopping, then you'll have to drive a little further. A few miles west on the I-4 (towards Tampa), you'll find Posner Park where there's an IMAX theater, plus a selection of restaurants and shops which include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll want to drive east towards Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers a range of shopping options. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Sun Lake Weather

When staying in Florida, no matter where you stay, you'll never be far from the ocean, so as a result, the weather across the Sunshine state is partly determined by the ocean. In addition, climatically the state is divided into two. The split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. In areas to the North of the lake, which is where Sun Lake is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Sun Lake, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the summer months of June to September. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Sun Lake offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay. If you've found a property on Sun Lake that appeals to you, then we'd recommend that you send off an inquiry regarding its availability and exact cost. However, why stop there? Why not check out other communities and resorts which can be close to Sun Lake and which might also have vacation rental homes that interest you. Most homes around Disney World® are in either Kissimmee, Davenport or Clermont areas. Whilst it's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Bella Toscana and also Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is a tempting place to stay if you're a golfer. If the total cost of the rental is an issue, then you might want to consider Crescent Lakes . When it comes to vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If the budget is not an issue, then you might want to look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of adults and children in your party before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving Directions to Sun Lake

Because Orlando is the recognized vacation capital of the world, it's become the sweetheart of the travel industry. So, for you and me that translates into the fact that it's now pretty straightforward to get a flight in and out of Orlando with a substantial number of international and domestic flights arrive at the city's airports each day. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and the slower paced, more relaxed, Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Sun Lake.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and a lesser number use the former naval air station of Sandford. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Sun Lake, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Sun Lake from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192 in a westerly direction. Once on Highway 192 W, drive for just over 3 miles and then turn right onto Silk Dr. Then after 2 hundred yards, turn right onto Sun Lake Ct. Sun lake resort will be straight ahead.

It's also worth mentioning that Highway 192 is the primary tourist thoroughfare for the Kissimmee, Davenport and Clermont areas. In terms of the availability of restaurants, it's the equivalent of Orlando's International drive.
