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.

Haines City

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 !
