The Central Florida region
Florida's other name, "The Sunshine State", really says it all about this wonderful part of the US, with virtually "Year Round" sunshine and temperatures into the seventies even in January.
The Orlando Area of Florida, being situated centrally in the State, has everything one could wish for in a vacation.
It boasts the fabulous "Disneyworld" , superb Shopping, Eating Out, Nightlife and of course it's also a Golfer's Paradise.
Although situated in central Florida, the beaches of the Gulf Coast in the West and the Daytona Area on the Atlantic side are no more than an hours drive away.
Southern Dunes is located just South of Orlando, and as well as all the necessary facilities "just outside the gates", Guests may also utilise the excellent facilities of the Clubhouse, library and fitness area together with the children's play areas, tennis courts, have a stroll around or fish on Lake Joe, or just make use of the two bicycles available at the Villa to cycle round the Southern Dunes community.
The towns of Haines City, Winterhaven, Kissimmee, Clermont are all reasonably close.
In the immediate area there is the famous "Heart of Florida" Medical Centre, Banks, Pharmacies, Supermarkets, a Post Office and various Restaurants, including McDonalds.
Haines City has an extremely good Library with Computer facilities.
Even though Southern Dunes has it's own Golf Course, there are more than twenty other "Pay & Play" courses within a short drive, and the green fees are much cheaper than in the UK, and will always include a Golf Cart. The area really is a "Golfing Paradise", and not expensive!
As well as the Disney Parks, there are a great number of other attractions in the area. These include such world famous names as Universal Resort, Sea World, Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens. There is also the charm of smaller attractions including Gatorland, Orlando's Odditorium & WonderWorks. The new Legoland Theme Park completed in Autumn of 2011 has proved to be very popular with children.
Because Southern Dunes is located just some seven miles off the Interstate Highway I-4, places like the Kennedy Space Centre, Cape Canaveral, Daytona Beach to the east and the Tampa area of the Mexican Gulf to the west are within a reasonable driving distance away.
In short, the location of "Thistledome" villa is perfect in that all of the well known landmarks and attractions of Central Florida are very easily reached !

"Home away from home"
This villa was just like a home away from home. It was conviently located near Wal-mart and plenty of places to eat. We stayed around Christmas and New Year's, so the traffic to get to the parks was a little congested and took a little longer to get to them, but coming back to the villa where it was away from the hustle and bustle of things were great. The villa itself had everything that was needed for a 2 week stay. We will definitely stay in this villa again. I do suggest that if you stay in the winter months and plan to get in the pool, have it heated. Even though it was in the 80's a few days, the water was still very cold.
We welcome the reviews that guests kindly take time to post. At time of receiving a booking enquiry advice is given regarding pool heat, which is an additional cost and is purely a matter of choice for guests.

"Beautifully Presented Villa"
A beautifully presented villa, exceptionally clean and comfortable with everything you could need to make it the perfect stay. Booking was easy with the owner adding that personal touch with a telephone call when we were there to check that everything was OK. Supermarkets, restaurants etc all within five minutes drive.
It is pleasing and encouraging that guests appreciate the service and quality provided taking time to post a review. Once again thank you.

"A quiet & peaceful location."
This is a lovely, very nicely furnished villa situated on a golf course. We particularly liked the security aspect as you enter/leave the location. Amenities at this location are excellent. For us it was a little too far from the parks and main attractions but that aside we enjoyed our stay. This is purely a personal opinion. The owner of this villa was very helpful with any questions and the information provided before, during & after our trip was very good. If the property was nearer to the attractions, we would have no hesitation in booking again.
Once again thank you to our guests who have taken the time to post a review for Thistledome. We feel Thistledome is ideally located for the parks, shopping and other attractions but appreciate guests have their own opinions and respect these.

"Haven after a good day shopping and theme parks"
Location of villa excellent for access to restaurants, food shopping, shopping at the malls and theme parks. Plenty to do even if you do not want to leave the Southern Dunes Community. Ideal for families and couples alike. Owner provides Guest Guide with plenty of hints and tips to make your stay more enjoyable. Excellent directions provided for Orlando International.
We welcome all feedback from guests and are always very appreciative when they take time to post their comments, providing their own personal review of 'Thistledome' to allow prospective guests to share in their experience.

"Lovely homely place - An oasis of calm from the hectic park days"
Very professional and friendly service provided, with regular contact/updates. Extremely good directions to the villa from the airport and an excellent guide to the villa provided also. We really enjoyed our stay at the villa, it was extremely clean and very well equipped. The gated community was well cared for and it felt very secure. There is a Walmart at the entrance to the community, which was very useful and many other shops and restaurants nearby, I would particularly recommend Manneys Chophouse. We also visited the golf club which was lovely, however we never actually ate there. The owner also follows up with a call whilst you are out there, although we were out and missed this, but she called us after the holiday to ensure everything was OK. The villa really is an oasis of calm following the hectic park days. It's about 20-30 mins drive from most of the parks which we found no problem at all, although this could put you off leaving a park earlier, to return later for the fireworks.
Many thanks to guests who take time to post their personal reviews of 'Thistledome' we welcome these comments as they provide a personal perspective to others and give us the opportunity to see 'Thistledome' as others see it and for that we are grateful.
