Very Good

“Brooks Retreat”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2019

It’s the second time with stopped here. It’s a great villa with all the appliances needed to make it a home from home. Everything is modern and well maintained. The owners are very personable and nothing is too much trouble. We highly recommend it for your Florida’s vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you Lee for your review, hope to accommodate you again in the future. Regards Chris

“Fabulous villa in an amazing location!”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2018

We stayed in Chris & Debbie’s villa for a week and had an amazing time. The booking process couldn’t have been easier and Chris and Debbie were both quick at replying to emails etc and provided loads of useful information. The villa itself was spotlessly clean, as was the pool (we opted for the heated option as it was late Nov and it worked a treat- we used the pool everyday), and we found ourselves feeling very comfortable and at home straight away. The villa had everything we needed, including a huge Wal-Mart right on the doorstep. As keen golfers we spent a fair few days playing the Southern Dunes course that surrounds all the villas, which was just great, but the villa is also within an easy drive of all the other Orlando attractions (approx 30 mins to main area). There were only the two of us so we had loads of space, but even larger parties would still find they had plenty of room. So whether you’re visiting Orlando to get Disneyfied, to play golf or just to relax and unwind - you can’t go wrong by staying in this villa!

Owner's reply: Thank you Elizabeth for the review, I hope the weather improved for you on the second week and should you wish to return to Southern Dunes, please do not hesitate to contact us. Merry Christmas, Chris & Debbie

Fabulous villa with great golf course view. Villa and pool area were both exceptionally clean and tidy, the kitchen was spotless and equipped to a high standard with modern appliances. Will definitely use this property again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Shona, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Merry Christmas, Chris & Debbie

“Great Villa in Beautiful location”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2018

We have just returned from a relaxing 10night stay. The Villa backs onto the Golf course giving great views. Having coffee early morning outside by the pool watching the sunrise, listening to the birds singing in the trees was blissful. The pool was a good size. The house was very spacious and had every amenity needed. The garage had lots of extras such a bikes, pool table, football table, washing machine and dryer. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. We will definitely return and we’re very sad to leave.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Sue, so pleased everything was to your liking. Please get in touch as soon as you know when you would like to return. Regards, Chris & Debbie

“Excellent Villa”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2016

Excellent villa with every home comfort. Owners and Management Company a joy to deal with and my family loved every minute of our 2 week stay. We particularly enjoyed the golf course outlook and privacy of the villa. The children loved the pool which we made great use of. The huge Walmart beside Southern Dunes is fabulous for everything you might need and there are a great choice of restaurants in the vicinity for convenience. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone, you will certainly not regret staying here - I can't wait to return. Thank you Chris & Debbie for allowing us to stay in your wonderful holiday home!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for giving your review, we look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Chris & Debbie

“Lovely place to stay”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2012

We stayed here for a week in November and found it to be very homely and spacious and had everything you could possibly want. The use of the internet and phone was very welcome too. We made use of the games room and played one of the games kindly left in the lounge. The owners were very easy to deal with and even phoned during our holiday to ensure that everything was ok. I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in Haines City/Southern Dunes area as it is very accessible to all parks and Walmart is at the end of the road!


Reviewed 27 Oct 2012

Spent a wonderful 17 days in this beautiful and welcoming home, it has everything you could need for a great stay. TV package was great, internet access and free phone calls back to the UK, what more could you need. Great location with fantastic views of the golf course yet still very peaceful and relaxing when sitting by the lovely pool too. Shops and eating all very close by and only 20 mins from the parks if you want to go. Chris and Debbie the owners where so helpful throughout the whole of our booking from day one until just a few days ago still keeping in touch. Management company also very helpful and friendly too. Would highly reccoment this property to anyone and we will deffinately be returning in the future. Southern Dunes is a lovely place to stay and so peaceful and has a very safe feeling with the secured gated community. Thanks again Chris and Debbie for all your help and for your beautiful villa x

“Home From Home with Extras”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2012

This is our second stay in Brooks Retreat. The minute we walked through the front door it felt like home. Decorated to a very high standard throughout with plenty of room for our family of five. Internet connection was a real bonus and kids could keep in touch with friends at home. The playroom and games station/dvd's etc in home were well utilised as the first three days of our stay it rained non stop. After that the pool was used every day. All in all we find the home and location perfect for our needs and couldn't recommend enough. Can't wait until our next stay. Quigg Family
