Domus Florida Villa
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Having rented several times "on the golf course" we decided to buy off it!!! We found, during the day we were pestered by golfers looking for golf balls and in the early hours we were awakened by mowers cutting the fairways and greens. Domus Florida Villa gives a spacious, relaxing environment to any type of holidaymaker, ideal for families or golfing parties, you are located in a superb area only a short drive from the main Florida attractions and a short, but enjoyable walk from all local amenities.
Walmart is located at the edge of the complex and is 24 hour so you can never run out of anything. Also located within walking distance are numerous restaurants, takeaways and pharmacies.
Southern Dunes is a Championship Golf Course and will even be appreciated by non-golfers, it really is a beautiful sight for all. There are numerous courses located in the area so you will never look far for a round!
The community itself offers you a full sized swimming pool, fitness room, children's play area, tennis courts and a fishing lake so there is always plenty to do.
Our beautiful villa comes complete with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, 2 lounges and a lovely heated pool & spa area complete with meshing should you require added safety for the children.

Not only will you be blown away with the spacious environment, we have tried to make your stay as relaxing and carefree as possible.
When you are not spending time in or lying by the pool you can relax in front of the flat screen televisions and watch cable on the numerous channels, or the kids may even prefer a DVD. The main lounge comes with a sofa that can easily seat 8 people so socialising is great in here, plus this room also encompasses a dining table that can comfortably seat 6.
The two Master Bedrooms have two lovely double beds that will ensure you sleep well whilst you're away from home and both have a television should you want some relaxation time on your own. The two twin rooms are again spacious and more catered towards the children.
The villa has air conditioning throughout so when the sun is shining (which we hope is for the duration!) you will always be cool.
For the culinary master chefs out there you will be very happy with the large kitchen, which again has everything you need.
Understandably, bathrooms are always an important part of any holiday villa and again you will not be disappointed. The main family bathroom has both a bath and overhead shower. One en-suite has a full bathroom facility with shower only and the other is a focus point with a walk in wet room and corner bath all located next to a huge walk in closet.
The Florida region
I am sure we don't need to tell you too much about the area but you are ideally located to enjoy everything Florida has to offer.
Additionally there is the Golf Clubhouse on site available to all residents and guests. It includes an excellent bar and restaurant and serves breakfast lunch and dinner at extremely reasonable prices. The golf course itself is open to all players and has 5 different tee levels varying from the true novice to the hardiest professional. Clubs can be hired from the club shop and the cost of playing varies around the year from $30 to $110 which includes hire of golf carts (which are mandatory). As well as Southern Dunes there are several other golf courses around the area that cater for every level of golfer.
You will be within walking distance of a 24 hour Wal Mart, Supermarket and Bank, while a whole host of shops, diners, and attractions are close by. Walt Disney World and all of Orlando's premier attractions are within easy reach.
Disney World 20 Mins
Tampa 45 Mins

Within the local area you won't have to look too far for your general amenities, all are within walking distance.
With regards to restaurants you have to try Manny's restaurant located just outside the main entrance (turn left and 800 yards on your right hand side). This restaurant is visited by people far and wide and the food is something else. The one piece of advice we can give is you won't need starter!! Please either book this restaurant or arrive very early. Another local restaurant is The Cherry Pocket which is about a 25 minute drive away. This is a real rural American restaurant situated on the side of a lake. The food is great and it is an experience to eat your steak with a wild alligator swimming a few feet from your table! Don't worry, they can't come and join you!
With regards to local activities we recommend you view the local paper from Walmart. This will tell you all that's going on in the nearby towns such as Davenport and Winter Haven. We always find there are plenty of local shows and flea markets, plus the shopping is of a high standard. There are several large shopping malls within a short driving distance.

"Exceptional Villa - perfect for a family vacation!"
This villa has to be considered by anyone taking a visit to Orlanda, exceptional accomodation in a great location with everything you require, spacious and well laid out it provides everything you require. Cleanliness could not be faulted. A great pool, Wi-Fi and games room to keep you occupied. It was a pleasure to stay in this accomodation
Some great restaurant's recommended by the owners are well worth a visit, especially Manny's only a short drive away, Wallmart only around the corner for any grocery requirements and you can also purchase park tickets from here. - Can't wait for the next visit.

"Home from home"
Having just returned from our wonderful stay, all I can say is wow! From the moment we drove into the gated community, we knew we had made the right choice. The house is gorgeous, location perfect, (only a short drive from Disney), and has everything you could possibly want. Rooms are spacious, clean, and well furnished. Lovely pool area and games room. I cannot wait to go back!

"Fabulous Family Villa"
Our 1st time staying at a villa in Orlando (normally stay at hotel) and the best move we've made yet. The comfortable surroundings made it feel like a home from home.
The booking process was seemless and Neil was very helpful and quick to respond to any request. Deposit was returned promptly as advised within booking.
The villa itself was immaculate and had all the amenities you would need for a relaxing family holiday. Our 11yr old son had a fantastic time around the pool and the games room. There were various board games and DVD's supplied for more choice. They also have free wi-fi within the villa to connect to your PC / iPad.
The resort is manned by security 24/7, giving you a reassuring feel anytime of day. During our stay there the place was quiet and we never experienced any noise day or night - so peaceful. We never got round to playing on the magnificent golf course but it looked fantastic and right on your doorstep.
The villa is located in Haines City, which was a 15min drive to Disney resort and 30min drive to Universal - both accessed via the i4 highway. Mr Bowerbank even provides a SatNav to help find your way around with ease, so no need to hire one with your car booking.
The villa is located right next to a huge Walmart store that sells everything. Accross the highway are many fast food outlets (McDonalds, Burger King, Chinese etc) and less than a 5min drive is the famous Manny's restaraunt, which is fab and resonable on the pocket.
All in all, a great place to stay and one that we will return to when coming back to Orlando.

"Exceptional accomodation in a beautiful location - perfection !!"
Every amenity in the villa - a true home from home - a wonderful place to stay.
Comfortable lounge area with a dining table and a great kitchen and den area leading to the fantastic pool. Relaxation is easy - motivating yourself to leave the villa is the difficult thing!
Great supermarkets at entrance to Southern Dunes to fill the fridge.
For a nearby food experience you must try Manny's Chophouse - try the ribs, the steaks.....everything!!!
The transport links are easy to follow giving you every opportunity to see all of Florida's many assets - finding time to do it all is the problem.
Would I go back - you bet....I'd move in if I could!!!.
