This property was situated in a location that was very close to major roadways. This provided us with the opportunity to access all theme parks quickly and easily. There were never any hassels getting in and out of Southern Dunes gated community. The satf at the gate were always friendly and helpful.
Outside the community of Southern Dunes were opportunities to grocery shop and get any other essential items that were needed during our holidays. We ate at a fabulous restaurant called 'Manny's Chop House' just minutes aways from the house. However, the kitcken in the this house was fabulous in order for us cook meals and keep our holiday budget in order. The kitchen was supplied with all dishes and cooking utlinsels needed to prepare a meal.
The house was a great base for our holiday. Upon arrival, the house was clean and spacious. The children enjoyed the pool everyday. It was a great opportunity for them to cool off after a long day at one of the theme parks. As moms, we enjoyed the use of the washing machine and dryer. This enabled us to keep up on the laundry and minimalize the work when we returned home.

Was so impressed with the villa we booked, it was terrific, large rooms, good size bathrooms and a great kitchen for when you want a day off from eating out.
The pool was great and we had the sun all day when we stayed at the villa.
Disney was only a 25 minute drive from the Villa providing you took the I4, even going to Kissimmee it was better going to the I4 and taking whatever exit you require.
Would go back to this villa tomorrow.
