Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Huge villa recently completely refurbished with a boutique inspired interior in neutral tones so as not to detract from the outstanding golf views seen from the windows. Newly resurfaced pool with large deck area to relax on sun loungers which have comfy cushions.
Florida Villa is furnished to a very high standard with your complete comfort and enjoyment in mind to ensure you have a holiday to remember. We have added extras that we ourselves would expect from a luxury villa. These include; Radio/Intercom system throughout villa so you can listen to music wherever you choose...even by the pool!, FREE Wireless Internet, IPOD decking station, 46" TV blu-ray DVD in Living Room, TV in both Master and Double Bedrooms, BBQ, Fabulous Games Room with 7ft pool table, 7ft air hockey table and Playstation 2 to keep the youngsters happy while you relax by the pool. There is also a sofabed in the Games Room so the youngsters can lie down and relax whilst playing the Playstation!
Florida villa is in Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club which is an immaculately kept secure complex which maintains 24 hours manned gated security making this a safe place to stay. There are community swimming pools, tennis courts, a gym, library and children's playground for those days when meeting Mickey Mouse is just too much trouble. With a Super-Walmart a minute away plus Dicks and several well known restaurants just further away, virtually everything is on hand.
Golfers will be in heaven on our award-winning course, simply pay and play - electric buggies included, The Club House serves wonderful family lunch, dinner and fabulous Sunday brunch.
We have tried to make the Villa completely Family Friendly...to give everybody in your family a great experience whether it be just to relax by the pool for the adults or keeping the kids occupied with the amazing Games Room or the array of Cable TV available.
The pool has been resurfaced and all the loungers and chairs have been replaced with luxurious cushions for your comfort.
It is a short drive to all the Disney Parks, Universal attractions, SeaWorld and a myriad fashion and outlet malls. Yet, it is also far enough away from the busy International Drive area to allow you to relax in the evening by the private swimming pool.
Orlando is the home of Walt Disney World with it's four theme parks - Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot; and it's water parks - Blizzard Beach amd Typhoon Lagoon. There is also the shopping/ restaurant area of Downtown Disney and much more! Adults and children alike will love the combination of familiar characters, rides, shows, shops & restaurants.
If sea-life is more your thing, you can swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove, snorkel the coral reef, stroke a ray or feed the birds (no, it's not tuppence a bag - it's included!). If you like to combine animal encounters - on stage or in "person" - with a few thrill rides, SeaWorld is the park for you.
Kennedy Space Centre is about an hour away by car. Here you can see Space Shuttle launch pads (if you're lucky maybe even a launch), Apollo rockets, watch IMAX movies and even meet an astronaut. This is a huge complex, but a day pass offers a second day free.
Other parks include Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Gatorland gives you an opportunity to encounter alligators up close. An airboat ride into the Everglades will take you to the wildlife.
If you were born to shop, Orlando has the up scale Mall of Millenia with Saks and Neiman Marcus, or outlets for that bargain designer item. There are malls and outlets throughout the Kissimmee area so if you are into fashion or sports, you'll be able to shop till you drop.

The Florida region
Orlando is still the No 1 destination in the world and its easy to see why people come back year after year. Walt Disney chose this spot because of the lovely climate, we enjoy warm sun all year round. There's more than you could manage to fit into two weeks with Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios plus Gatorland and all the other parks springing up all the time.
Florida Villa sits within the orange groves which make the famous Florida orange juice and is centrally located for trips to either the Space Coast with Kennedy Space Centre and world-famous Daytona Beach; or for the Gulf Coast with the delights of Clearwater, St Petes and Sarasota.
Wealthy Naples and Venice are slightly further south - about 2.5 hours drive and the fabulous Florida Keys are well worth a visit too.
Florida Villa is located within Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club, south of Orlando but within close proximity to Disney. Its also great to be out of the madness of Orlando and come home to somewhere peaceful and relaxing.
There's a huge Walmart just by the entrance to Dunes for all your family's needs, plus local shops.
The award-winning Southern Dunes golf course is rated #6 in Florida. Golf pros are available for lessons, or you can check out the driving range. A golf shop can be found at the club house. There are five tees at each hole for different skill levels. Tee times can be booked online and discounts are offered on their website. Ask for details if you want more information.

"Emmaculate villa in a great location"
Florida villa is a really lovely villa located on Southern Dunes. It was as stated a 40 minute drive from the airport and about 30 minutes from all the attractions. When we arrived (late evening) the lights were on for us and the villa looked amazing. It was spotlessly clean with loads of cutlery, plates etc and a large fridge freezer and dishwasher. The villa is really modern and open plan which is great for families and the games room is an added bonus. The bedrooms are all a really good size and again all kitted out with modern furniture.
The pool area is great with a fantastic view of the golf course. It has areas of shade which is ideal.
The property management company were brilliant, checking in on us to make sure everything was ok.
In terms of location it is ideal as just far enough from the parks and allows you to see another side of Florida. The clubhouse is great and serves really nice food at a reasonable price. Walmart is just a couple of minutes away so is a nice chinese takaway and Manny's Chophouse.
All in all a fantastic holiday and would recommend without hesitation.

"Perfect location and ideal house for family"
The house and pool were excellent and very well used throughout the stay. The location overlooking the 6th Fairway was ideal for me so I could see my garden!! yet the trees provided privacy. The pool got sun most of the day and having the seating in the shade was perfect when eating outside.
The house itself was perfect, the decor was modern and clean and we enjoyed the space it offered. The provision of towels, linen etc was more than enough which was great allowing us to fill our suitcases with goodies from the shopping there. The playroom in the garage was a useful distraction for the kids.
If you are looking to play golf the course is excellent and a real challenge, I would recommend buying the Dunes Card at the clubhouse as it offers big discounts on the green fees.
The location was ideal, great to be able to get away from the noise of disney but only 30 mins away and easy to get to.
previous reviews mentioned Mannies Chop house for steaks, they were right, it's really top quality. Our advise if you have kids, call ahead to get name on the list for a table as they are always busy.
Walmart was just outside the complex and sells everything which was exteremly useful.
We are seriously thinking of going back to stay there again next year .
Thank you Dawn.

"Lovely location Lovely villa"
The views from this villa are lovely overlooking the 6th Tee. The trees provide privacy while still getting a good view of the golf course. The sun shines on the pool from morning to evening while the sheltered lanai provides an escape from the direct sun. The villa is very clean and tastefully decorated and is very comfortable to relax in and has everything you will need for your stay. Having visited Sourthern Dunes several times and the Orlando area many times we have found that it is one of our favourite places to stay. It is a true gated community with 24 hour security and a very welcoming atmosphere. I am sure we will visit again in the future.

"super holiday in Florida"
Just want to share with you our very pleasant stay in Dawn`s villa in Southern Dunes Florida.
The house was clean and very modern decorated.
Pool was cleaned every week there was enough space for all of us on the beds.
The towels (there were plenty) were all new just as the bedlinnen.
After a few days we found this pleasant welcoming card from the vacation agency.
We were staying with 8 people and we all had a very nice time!
That's why we are planning our next stay allready.
Dawn thanks again!

"Wonderful stay at Florida Villa! Would highly recommended"
We are not long back from 3 wonderful weeks in this lovely accomodation. I have never written a review before but felt I had to share our experience. We picked this villa on the basis that the refurblishement was of a high standard with nice netural decor and we could not have been happier when we arrived.
Dawn, the owner was lovely, checking in with us before, during and after our trip to ensure everything was to our satisfaction, which it was. Her management team welcomed us on arrival and made themselves available whenever we needed them. I was impressed with both the interior and the outside space and our family spent 3 very comfortable weeks there. We really didn't want to come home. The complex is maintained to a high standard, the location is great, with supermarket on your doorstep, lovely views over the golf course and within walking distance of Manny's Chophouse (which do fabulous steaks).
I was particulary surprised to read another review and would have to say their description of the property does not reflect the wonderful comfortable enviroment that we found on arrival. The villa was spotless and all the applicances you would need were available. We enjoyed several evenings just chilling at the villa , eating by the pool and enjoying the tranquility, the position of the villa is great, with the pool getting lots of sunshine most of the day but with shady areas too to suit everyone, Our son particulary enjoyed watchng the blue herons and squirrels as they played in the trees.
Disney was a 25 minute drive away and Universal another 10mins but that suited us fine and we enjoyed heading away from the hustle and bustle at the end of the day and returning to the comfort of our villa.
I would happpily recommend this villa to anyone and hope you have as nice a time as we had.

"Excellent - Accommodation like a "Show Home""
Stayed in Dawn's villa at the end of October 2011 during UK school half term holidays.
What a beautiful villa, so tastefully furnished to show home standard. Luxury carpets in bedrooms and tiles in kitchen/lounge/bathrooms. Beds comfortable with fresh, clean matching linen. Kitchen very well stocked with everything you would need. Bathrooms clean and plenty of fresh, fluffy white towels. Free wifi an added bonus.
Quiet area especially at night so you are guaranteed a good night's sleep. Villa overlooks 6th tee and fairway. Villa is a short pleasant 10-15 minute walk to supermarkets and fast food outlets. Pool was heated and a lovely temperature. The pool area has both sunshine and shade, lots of pool towels for use - you can also dine alfresco by the pool. Couple of inflatables available. Large american washer, dryer, iron available for use. Games room was fun for our son (and dad!). Family had a very relaxed and comfortable stay. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends and family. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

"very poor standard of cleanliness and overall accommodation"
Villa was furnished poorly with cheap and very uncomfortable sofas and beds, bedding had to be replaced it was that bad. All areas of villa especially kitchen , bathrooms and carpets FILTHY.Villa hadnt been cleaned properly, micowave and cooking utensils were dirty. Pool area- chairs and loungers covered in mold, no pool net or hose. No playstation games. Management company blamed owners and owners blamed management company the only losers were us. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
We take your comments very seriously but are extremely upset as we believe they in no way reflect our Villa. We have had nothing but positive reviews from our guests as can be seen from our guest book.
The Villa was fully refurbished both inside and out less than nine months before your visit with new furniture, fully painted and had a completely refurbished pool and decking. The very next guest after yourselves has posted a guest review which completely contradicts your comments of the condition of our Villa.
I have to convey a certain level of confusion by myself and my Management Company by your comments due to the following;
The day after your arrival my Management Company visited you in the villa and communicated to me to say that you were happy with the villa and your only comment was that the bed base castor was squeaky. This was resolved by moving the bed base slightly.
I then received an email from you complaining about the cleanliness of the villa. I contacted the Management Company and asked them to go to you immediately. The Management Company offered to re-clean the villa to which you DECLINED.
The Sun Lounger cushions, although weather proof, are kept outside and so general wear and tear is to be expected in the tropical climate of Florida . In any case, I arranged for these to be deep-cleaned for you immediately.
The carpets, once again general wear and tear is expected but again, I arranged these to be deep-cleaned for you immediately.
The bedding, although it did not need replacing as they are relatively new, I organised for the Management Company to come round that evening having purchased new bedding for you.
I offered for you to let me know if there was anything else I or my Management Company could do for you and you replied 'no'.
I do have to disagree with your comment that the sofas are cheap. I find this rather rude as they are less than nine months old and were anything but cheap. I do not know what you have based that comment on.
WHAT I FOUND MOST STRANGE was on your return home you emailed me requesting me to reimburse you all your restaurant bills whilst in the USA. I thought this was an unfair request given we had both acted on all of your issues and offered to re-clean the Villa .
Our Villa today reflects the pictures on the web site exactly and is in excellent condition as was commented on by guests both prior to and after your visit.
Guest satisfaction was, is and will always be our number one priority .
