Description from owner
Villa Southern Dunes is the perfect vacation homes for multi-generation groups (kids, parents and grandparents) or sharing families, as we have two double bedrooms with en suite. The Mickey Master has a king-size bed with large bathroom, walk-in shower and separate tub as well as a walk-in closet. The smaller Donald Master has a queen-size bed, with full bathroom (bath with shower over) and large closet. There's a cable TV and DVD in each master too! This means the third Little Mermaid-themed bathroom is available for our guests in the two Disney-themed twin rooms (Simba and Nemo) to share another full bath with shower over. There's also a double sofa bed in the Great Room.Our two lounges mean that, once the kids are asleep the grown-ups can retire to the Great Room without fear of disturbing them, to watch the 58-inch smart TV with digital cable and access your online services such as Netflix, Amazon or YouTube. Our soundbar with subwoofer enhances the sound of your favourite

Our soundbar with subwoofer enhances the sound of your favourite action movie or sports game. Maybe you just prefer to sit around and chat - well we have enough seats for everyone! (Seriously, go check out some other houses, you'll be amazed how many want you to sit on the floor!) We even have a dining table that seats ten - ALL our guests can eat together, if they so wish - or it's a great place to do one of our many included jigsaws!The second, family lounge is more informal, with it's 42-inch cable television, DVD player with a large library of movies for all the family (yes, we have westerns, sports and action films, family kids films, romances and comedies - films for ALL the family!) There's a library of novels and travel books for you to read, as well as colouring and activity books. Out on our private pool deck the whole family can enjoy an al fresco meal with our ten chairs and two tables, even after a full day at the parks, our deck lighting means you can enjoy the evening air. To enjoy the sun there are also four sun loungers and a vast array of pool toys (actual toys may vary from visit to visit, though we try to keep at least one big ride-on toy available wherever possible). There are two grills/BBQs here - charcoal and gas - for use outside of the screened pool deck - we don't guarantee fuel (charcoal or gas, though there is a gas bottle which may have gas) but these are readily available at the nearby supermarkets.For more fun, our well-equipped games room has an 8-foot slate pool table, air hockey table, foosball/table football table, as well as safety darts, a rocking horse for our smaller guests and a toy box full of dolls, cars and stuffies. Oh, and don't forget the LEGO box! There are dress-up clothes for all the kids and more board games and jigsaw puzzles than you can imagine!

“Absolutely amazing villa :-)”
This was my second visit to this villa and yet again it did not disappoint. There is absolutely nothing to fault, everything you could possibly need or want is supplied for you, we didn't even need to buy ponchos, which unfortunately got a lot of use!! We travelled with 2 children who spent the majority of the time in the pool and playing in the incredibly well equipped games room. Di is an absolute star, nothing is too much trouble for her and I personally think you'd have to go a long way to find a better villa and owner. Love the fact that has enough seating for everyone, we had friends over whilst there and it was great to be able to all sit at a table together. I do not hesitate in recommending this villa and we will be staying again on our next visit to Florida. (You must visit Manny's chophouse as well if staying here, best steak ever!!!) Book now to avoid disappointment :-) Nearly forgot to mention the bed in Mickey master, so comfy, and have been told all the others are as well, just what you'll need after a long day at parks. Another plus for me was the free phone calls so could keep in touch with my family. The tv is pretty awesome too, we had awful weather so spent more time in than we wanted, but a 50" smart tv certainly helped.
Thank you for that great review Juliet - we do love our returning guests! They already know we try to go above and beyond when it comes to service. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future.
“Everything you could wish for...and more!”
Have just spent a fantastic two weeks at Villa Southern Dunes. It is situated in an idyllic location, quiet and peaceful yet within half an hour of all the Disney attractions etc. There are many eateries and a large Walmart close by. The villa contains absolutely everything you could need. We realised we had forgotten a cool box - and then found one in the cupboard! We wished we had checked in online and printed off our boarding cards to allow us to arrive at the airport a little later - there was a printer so we could do this using my husbands laptop. The rooms are airy, bright and spacious and the villa is clean and spotless throughout. There were eight of us staying, from the ages of 4 to 70 yet we were never under each others feet. Everything was just fantastic, from the pool area to the well equipped kitchen - even containing a waffle maker! There are ample towels, hairdryers and a little mermaid bubble blower in the bathroom was a lovely touch. Each bedroom is Disney themed throughout, even the light switches! Absolutely amazing for children - there is a games room with air hockey, table football, pool table and loads of games and toys for younger children. The pool has buckets and spades, lots of inflatables etc. My children were asking every day for more time at the villa! My 4 year old was so excited as every time she opened a drawer or a cupboard there were more crayons, colouring books and stickers! There was also a fantastic selection of DVD's - if you have time to watch them! They really have thought of everything here, we just wish we had stayed another week so we could enjoy time around the pool/in the villa as we spent most of our time at the parks. Really hope to visit Florida in the future and if we do we will have no hesitation in booking Villa Southern Dunes again.
“This Villa Caters For Every Need and More”
The Villa contributed so much to the enjoyment of our 2 weeks holiday. It was spacious, therefore providing room for those of us who needed time to ourselves; ages ranged from 4 to 70 so that was important to us as a group. The furniture and decor was immaculate, my husband I particularly enjoyed relaxing in the front room, leaving our daughter/son in law and 4 children the room next to the pool and the beautiful pool area to enjoy. The 10 place table/settings in the front room provided us with ample room to enjoy family meals together. Our family used all the bedrooms and the children (and adults) were delighted with the Disney theme throughout. The owners provided us with ample towels, cutlery, plates, cups, cooking utensils etc etc. We used the table in the kitchen/dining area for breakfast as we seemed to eat as and when we were ready. The highlight for the children was the Games Room, which incidentally houses the washing machine and dryer. The children made this room their first port of call most days, snooker, air hockey and table football being their favourites. Monopoly and scrabble provided too, as were many other games, books, toys, dressing up clothes, puzzles, DVD's etc. We also made good use of the pushchair for our youngest member.. We all enjoyed the lovely pool and the children made good use of the pool toys. The Villa is just a few minutes drive from Walmart, which we made good use of. In fact we purchased milk, cereal, bread etc before we went to Villa so that we had the basics. I shall certainly recommend this Villa to my friends as it was the perfect place to stay and within easy reach of Theme Parks. I would also recommend a visit to Boggy Creek, Kennedy Space Centre and Sizzlers for breakfast ($5.99). We had an amazing family holiday and I'm sure you, the reader of this review, will too.
