Villa overview - owner's description
Superior 4 bedroom family owned villa with *LARGE PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL*, *FREE WIRELESS INTERNET*, *50 INCH HD TV & FULL CABLE TV*. Set in the prestigious Southern Dunes Golf & Country Cub. PERFECT !
After viewing many villas in various communities within the Disney area we eventually found what we were looking for in the prestigious Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club. Situated conveniently on the highway 27, Southern Dunes, which is a manned gated community, is in a perfect position for accessing the many attractions and shopping in the Disney/Orlando area. We can now also boast being very close to the new Legoland which incorporates Cypress Gardens and a water park. We are also in a great position for joining the I4 therefore getting to the Disney attractions is very easy. Busch Gardens in Tampa and both the Gulf and Atlantic coast beaches are also very accessable.
Our villa is our pride and joy and we very much want to share it with you. We want you to enjoy staying in it so much that you will want to return. With it's 50 inch HD television and HD cable tv, free high speed wireless internet, full air conditioning throughout, telephone with free calls within the USA and Canada, 4 bedrooms, 2 sitting areas, 2 dining areas, the all important utility room, games room, 2 bathrooms, and most importantly the large heated swimming pool you will find this has it all. It is furnished to a very high standard with many extras from paintings to hairdryers. It is extremely child friendly. Not only do we have a travel cot and highchair at no extra cost, we also have a security fence at the pool which can be easily taken down if not required. We regularly buy new bedding, towels and those little extra things to let our guests know that we care. We have a fantastic management company who will ensure that your stay is hassle free. They help us to ensure that everything in our villa is clean and in perfect condition and are always on hand to deal with any problems should they arise.
Whether you are looking for that family villa with a special touch, the perfect tranquil villa for a romantic getaway or that all important golfing holiday then our villa is for you.
As you walk through the front door you will enter the 1st seating area which has an open plan formal dining area. The 2nd seating area is at the rear of the house and has beautiful large patio doors leading onto the pool. Here you will find our fantastic 50 inch television with HD cable tv and DVD player. Both areas have magnificent vaulted ceilings.
The villa has 4 bedrooms. 1 master bedroom with a super king size bedroom suite bought in July 2015 with patio doors leading to the pool and an en suite bathroom/shower room, a second queen bedroom and 2 twin rooms. The 2nd Double room and the 2 twins share a bathroom/shower room/toilet. Some may argue that a 3rd bathroom would be desirable but we find what we have is more than adequate with never a complaint from our guests. As a matter of fact we chose this set up as it means more space in other parts of the villa. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and televisions.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST BAR/UTILITY ROOM
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay. All utensils, crockery, etc., are in perfect/new condition. There is a large American fridge/freezer. The kitchen is also equipped with a large oven and microwave.
Next to the kitchen is a 2nd dining area and breakfast bar.
We also have that all important utility room leading from the kitchen which has a large washing machine and tumble dryer.
The double garage houses a pool table with a table tennis top, a fantastic cross trainer, a dart board, chairs, a selection of books and 2 bikes for you to use at your leisure. When the sun moves away from the pool area in the late afternoon/evening the garage doors can be opened. Here you can bask in the sun using the chairs we have in the garage.
The villa has high speed wireless internet which can be accessed by multiple users.
In our opinion the most special part of our villa is the large pool. With clear blue water and a lovely outlook you will want to spend hours here. We have plenty of top quality comfortable sunbeds for you to relax on and a dining table and chairs. If you want to sit in the shade there is a shaded area. Pool heat is available during the cooler months.
Southern Dunes is an exclusive community of top quality homes set amidst a fantastic 18 hole golf course designed by Steve Myers and ranked in Florida's top 10. You can pay and play, book on line or purchase a monthly membership. There's something for everyone at Southern Dunes - a community pool, a gym, tennis courts, kids swing park, beautiful walks, fishing in Lake Joe (you will need your own line & tackle and be mindful of the resident gators !), banks, gas stations and much more. Tavern on the Dunes is located in the 12,000 square foot clubhouse and is the perfect place to have breakfast & lunch or to simply unwind after an enjoyable round of golf. Happy hour is from 4.00pm to 7.00pm 7 days a week in the newly renovated bar that features 7 TV's and with the help of Direct TV they are able to offer a variety of your favourite sporting events i.e., Golf, NFL Ticket, College Football, NHL, MLB and much much more !! For up to date information visit www.southerndunes.com.
Within walking distance of the villa you will find a 24 hour Walmart (you may want to take the car if it's a larger shopping list), a Winn Dixie, a Chinese take away and various restaurants such as the usual McDonalds, Checkers, etc., Our biggest claim to fame is Manny's Chop House where you will have not just a meal but a dining experience. Manny's has a phone ahead booking service and is so different from the usual American diners. Take a look at www.mannyschophouse.com. As you exit Southern Dunes and drive along the Highway 27 you will find many restaurants such as Appleby's, Cracker Barrel, Grand China Buffet, Perkins, Denny's, Bob Evans, etc.,
Not far from our villa, on the I4 going East, you will find the Disney attractions and on the I4 going WEST you will find various places of interest such as The Museum of Flight, The Water Skiing Experience, Dinosaur Land aswell as Legoland as previously mentioned. If it's hiring a fishing boat that takes your fancy or trying out the experience of firing a gun at a gun range then look no further.
We have a collection of leaflets in the villa which you may find interesting. If any of our guests experience anything new they tend to leave some information for future guests.

We often stay at Southern Dunes for our vacations in Orlando and this property is definitely in the top list. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean, well presented and equipped it is. There's everything a family would need for a comfortable stay and full of nice details. Great pool and game room.
We had not been to Florida for 17 years and have never rented a villa. We picked this villa based on pictures and description. Oh my gosh we were not dissapointed. The house is presented so nicely and we arrived to find it looking like a show house. We loved the house it has everything you need and has so much space. There was only four of us and we only used two of the bedrooms and bathrooms. There is a huge tv in the living room and all the bedrooms have TV's. There is internet. The outside space around the pool is great for a chilling out day or a quiet day after hitting the parks. Just outside the estate entrance is a huge Wallmart selling everything and along the US27 are all the usual diners etc.
If we go back to Florida in the future we will just try and book the villa again. Its as simple as that.
Wir waren nun das zweite Mal in dieser Villa. Alles war genauso toll wie beim ersten Mal. Es war, als würden wir nach Hause kommen. Uns hat es wieder so gut gefallen, dass wir bereits wieder diese Villa gebucht haben.
It was the second time we stayed in this Villa. It was perfect again. It was like coming home. And we already booked our next visit in this villa :-)
Was eine Villa!!! Fantastisch!
Wir waren zu siebt und es war ausreichend Platz für uns alle. Die Villa ist sehr schön eingerichtet. Der Pool ist ein Traum, die Kinder hätten ihn am liebsten mit nach Hausge genommen.
Wir hatten schon mehrere Unterkünfte in Florida, aber diese ist mit Abstand die Beste, die wir je hatten!
Carolyn hat im Vorfeld jede unserer Fragen wahnsinnig schnell beantwortet und auch während unserem Aufenthalt hat sie uns weitergeholfen. Sie ist wirklich eine sehr gute und herzlich Gastgeberin.
Southern Dunes ist eine ruhig gelegene Golfanlage in der Nähe von Kissimmee. Unser absolutes ToDo neben den Parks, Wasserparks, Strand etc. ist auch ein Besuch in Mannys Chophouse. Dort gibt es einfach die weltbesten Spare Ribs.
Was fehlt zum Glück? Der nächste Urlaub in dieser fantastischen Villa! …wir haben schon gebucht!
What a villa! Amazing!
We were a party of seven and it was enough space for all of us. The villa is beautiful decorated. The pool is a dream and our kids wanted to take it home.
It was not our first accomodation in Florida but the best of all!
Before booking Caroly answered every question very fast and while we are in Florida she helped quickly. She is a very obliging host.
Southern Dunes is a very secluded community in the near of Kissimmee. Our top favorite besides all the parks, water parks, beach and so on is a visit at Mannys Chophouse. You will get the best spare ribs!
What do we need to be happy? The next holiday in this fantastic villa! ... we have already booked!
I dont often leave rave reviews about a villa but this one deserves every accolade. I noticed that Carolyn (Owner) mentioned that there were only 2 bathrooms but let me put that "downside" to bed right away. The master suite has a large bathroom with a huge tub, walk in shower and a separate toilet so there is really no need for another bathroom..surely two is plenty or even a couple of families sharing? The Southern Dunes area is great, Walmart and Winn Dixie are both easily walkable though Publix (our favourite) is only minutes on Highway 27 and you can dro p in there on your way back from Disney/Universal etc. There was mention too of the legendary Mannys restaurant. In all honesty there are more take-aways on the doorstep than youll know what to do with but for real food then believe the legend and get to Mannys. The food is fantastic but make sure and call ahead or youll be waiting for sometime, victims of their own success! Between the 4 of us we pretty much managed to go through the menu!! The golf course at Southern Dunes was great, I only played once and just about beat the lightning in but its a lovely course and very much lives up to the name "Dunes". Im sure I paid about £45 for golf, buggy, rental clubs and a glove, which you really cannot argue with and the course was in immaculate condition. Back to the villa itself though and I can thoroughly recommend this one, we have done quite a few villas now and this was easily the best. Its well laid out, its in immaculate condition, there was a safe (a few we have been to have not had one), the area felt very secluded despite villas all round about but with kids in tow it also felt very safe indeed. Every review needs a negative but all I have is that there was not a brush for the pool table but I managed easily to give it a good clean and Im not sure that really counts as a negative in any way, shape or form. There are lots of TV channels for the kids, TVs in all the rooms and enough room to find some peace and quiet when you just need a quick cold beer on your own after the stresses of the parks with the kids! Seriously though, if you find this one then just book it, dont waste your time looking elsewhere, there really is no point! Can I also say thank you to both Carolyn and the Florida management committee. Although we had no need for them during our stay our daughter managed to leave her Teddy of 9 years behind but between them they have found her safe and sound and have promised to return her to us! Please, dont read lots of reviews, just book this one and go and enjoy 2 weeks at Southern Dunes!!!
