Golf Course View, near Disney
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Let us make your holiday in Florida's Sunshine State one that you'll always remember for all the right reasons.
Our villa is located in a quiet, secure, award winning community only 20 minutes from the Disney attractions. The smartly furnished and highly upgraded villa has an excellent uninterrupted view across the 16th fairway of the nationally rated Southern Dunes Golf Course. The open plan interior of the villa is enhanced by high, vaulted ceilings and stylish decoration, while the private screened pool, spa and patio deck benefit from those beautiful Florida sunsets. Whether visiting the Disney Parks, playing golf, or just for relaxing by the pool, this villa will be a great base for your next vacation. Our 'home' is something special!
To ensure that the villa is maintained to a very high standard we regularly visit the home ourselves. It was recently redecorated throughout to provide a clean and fresh look for our guests. There is a 50" Plasma TV and Home Theatre system in the lounge for you to enjoy on those more relaxing evenings, and for the children there's even a games table to keep them occupied when they are not enjoying the pool. We now offer 'Solar' pool heating, WiFi, use of a gas BBQ, and if required a cot/highchair and two 2 strollers all FREE OF CHARGE. With LED 'mood lighting' now fitted to the pool the home is a magical place to be, day or night.
The Southern Dunes estate is a secure, gated golf course community only 6 miles south of Interstate 4 (junction 55) on Hwy 27 South. The private development is located on your left hand side, adjacent to the Walmart superstore, just prior to entering Haines City. It is a 45 minute drive from Orlando International Airport or 1 hour from Tampa International, 1 hour from the beaches, only 20 minutes from the Disney main gate and within walking distance of the golf Pro-shop. Legoland and it's waterpark, which is ideal for children, is only a short 15 minute drive away.

Hi Allyn and Jenny. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful home. Thank you for sharing it. I think your management team/cleaning team appear to do a wonderful job. The villa was impeccably clean. We do not have any complaints/issues indeed on the contrary. I have worked in Customer Service all my life and know that honest feedback is invaluable. SUPER home and we have had the BEST of times out there. Communication with you has been easy, replies prompt and explanatory and we feel more like we have shared a friends Villa than hired one. We would have no trouble recommending it to anyone. Thank you again for our family holiday of a lifetime.

We had a great time in your house. We loved the pool and the area. We spent our sunny days in Disney World and on fan-boats watching alligators! The rainy days were well spent in Malls. The climate is hot and sticky. A big change from our snowy Sweden. THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES.
Date of Stay: July 2010
It was our first trip to Florida and this house was everything we were hoping for. My family enjoyed the decor and all of the living space. The pool and spa were enjoyed greatly during the heat wave. It was only about a 20 to 25 minute drive away from Walt Disney World and local outlet mall shopping. The neighbourhood itself was peaceful and beautiful and very safe. We were told about a local restaurant called Manny's Chophouse and it was the best steak and ribs that we had all ever had. My family highly recommends it. The house itself was well maintained and clean. Having 3 bathrooms was a plus and got us on our way early every day. We enjoyed the BBQ and the home theatre system. Everything was better than described. We would highly suggest this property for any family coming to Florida to go to Walt Disney World or Universal studios. We loved it and we know that anyone else would too. Thank you to Allyn and Jenny for a wonderful stay. Hope to see rent your home again next year. Thanks again.

The Central Florida region
Located within easy reach of three main airports - Tampa International, Orlando International, and Sanford, it's just a short drive from the entertainment capital of the world, or an hour from the beaches. But for something different, why not visit the Florida Strawberry Festival in the Spring, or even a Winery at almost any other time. You could visit some quaint historical towns or the busier outlet shopping malls - there's something for everyone. Check-out the Water Parks, Disney, Universal, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Busch Gardens, and Legoland, or even experience an airboat ride through the swamp, or a flight in a hot air balloon. Or, if you prefer something more tranquil, then Bok Tower Gardens, the Tiffany Museum or a boat trip around the Winter Park Lake might be just up your street. You can do almost anything that takes your fancy within a short drive of your villa.
The villa is conveniently located within a 20 minute drive of all the Disney attractions and just 15 minutes drive from the newly opened Legoland. A bank, petrol station, various restaurants and 2 large supermarkets are situated just outside the security gate and 2 major shopping malls are located only a short drive away. The home is located on a golf course and therefore, if required, can provide a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of all the Park attractions and malls. The on-site facilities include the Championship golf course, a golf clubhouse that provides bar and dining services to golfers and non-golfers alike, basketball and tennis courts, a children's play area, a multi-gym and a larger community pool.
Within a short drive of the main security gate you can eat at one of many local restaurants which offer great variety, or you could have a BBQ at the poolside while enjoying a drink and watching the sun go down - the choice is yours.

"lovely place to enjoy the sunshine state"
We had a wonderful holiday at Southern Dunes again. The property of Allyn and Jenny provides everything for a comfortable stay. It has a free view over a green. Lovely to see the sun set from the poolside. So nice to have a jacuzzi as a not so common extra.

"Everything we expected & more!"
We found the house well maintained and equipped with all the appointments to make our holiday enjoyable. The pool area was great with a wonderful view of the 16th fairway at Southern Dunes golf course. This is a gated community and the security staff at the gate take that seriously, giving us piece of mind. We especially liked the personal contact on the part of the house maintanence staff, including the pool people. They introduced themselves and let us know how to reach them if needed. We've rented vacation condos and home before and were never had that ready contact before. While we didn't need anything, it put us at ease. We were pleased enough with the home to re-book for next Christmas, didn't want to miss out by being slow to act!!

"Lovely villa on a great resort"
Had a lovely holiday in Orlando and it was made all the better as our villa was lovely, clean well decorated and had everything we needed. The Southern Dunes estate is a golfing resort and is very well kept. Guest have full use of the facilities, a lovely club house and a gym ( if you want to workout ) and lovely walks.
Booking the villa was very straight forward. The owners very very helpful and friendly.
We will definitely recommend their villa to others for their holidays.

"Homely, peaceful, spacious and secure"
This is our second family stay at Jenny & Allyn's Villa. The gardens, golf course and resort are all manicured and very inviting. The villa is a very comfortable retreat after a busy day at the parks or shopping with the added advantage of a solar panelled heated pool and jacuzzi. The large washing machine/tumble dryer and drying space in the large garage means no case full of washing to take home. The Wifi is an added advantage we were able to look up local restaurants, plan routes and check in online for our return flight. There is a huge Wal Mart at the entrance to the gated community and a good selection of places nearby to eat we recommend Webb's candy store approximately two miles away for chocoholics and ice cream in all flavours. If you are a golfer the course is excellent and one of the best in Florida the staff in the club house are friendly and helpful all in all a perfect family holiday spot or if you like room to yourself an ideal and reasonable Villa for two cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel.
