Villa overview - owner's description

Beautiful villa located on the exclusive gated community Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club. The villa is tastefully decorated with a modern feel. It has 4 bedrooms - 3 bathrooms and private pool.

Executive 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with stunning views overlooking the third fairway on the secure gated community of Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club. This beautiful holiday home has recently been upgraded with quality furnishings to the highest standards.

Fully air conditioned, your home from home includes:- Large flat screen TV with a huge range of cable channels including live premiership football; DVD player; FREE Wi-Fi; IPod Docking station; Wii Console with a variety of games ; free telephone calls within the USA and Canada and a games room with pool table and darts board. Fully equipped kitchen with many new appliances. The west facing swimming pool and deck area has unbeatable views overlooking the award winning golf course and is the perfect spot for unwinding after a busy day golfing or visiting the nearby theme parks. The villa also has a BBQ out on the pool deck that you are free to use without any hire charges.

Located just 20 minute drive from Disney, Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club is a quiet, upmarket golf resort with 24 hr manned security at the entrance, it has excellent amenities including 3 communal swimming pools, a gym, children's play area, 2 tennis courts, bike paths, an attractive Clubhouse with a bar and restaurant open 7 days a week to visitors for breakfast and lunch. There is also a golf pro shop.

For added convenience, there is also a 24/7 Wal-Mart Superstore just outside the main gatehouse, with a gas station, bank, restaurants, & many other shops. One of the reasons we bought this house is the fact you can walk out to bars and restaurants without having to worry about the car.

The villa is very child friendly we offer a baby gate and use of a travel cot free of charge. To ensure child safety we have a removable pool fence and the patio doors are linked to the alarm alerting you if they are opened.

You are also nearer to both the Gulf & Atlantic coasts - the nearest beach is about an hour's drive. You can shop at the many discount malls, selling designer and other goods at a fraction of UK prices! Eating out is very reasonable too with a huge choice of restaurants - all within an easy drive.

Ideally suited to all parties looking for an excellent holiday home in Orlando.

We are able to assist you with flights, car hire and theme park tickets if required.

Angela H 20/10/13 Recently came back from a 2 week holiday at Hemingway Villa with friends. It was in an ideal location, in a beautifully maintained gated community. The villa was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. It was next to a huge Walmart, which meant that on our first night there we could stock up on the essentials, ready to start our holiday the next day. We used the chinese takeaway a couple of nights which delivered to the villa and our favourite restaurant "Mannys" is just down the road. The games room and pool came in handy for entertaining the kids while the adults got ready and the free wifi was great for keeping friends and family back home updat ed with our activities. Disney world, International Drive and Universal are apporiximately half an hour away. Would definitely return!

Lesley Burrows 25/06/13 The villa was fantastic. It had everything we needed, great facilities, lovely and clean, was in a lovely secure location and we felt completely at home. The pool area was fab, with enough space to sit and eat while the kids enjoyed the pool. Cooking was easy and we enjoyed the barbeque after long days out in the parks. I feel that the villa provided excellent value for money, which just topped off a fantastic holiday - one which will be remembered for many years to come. Thank you :D we will be back again.

Stunning property with everything you could possibly need” Reviewed April 7, 2013 for a stay in March 2013 This property was recommended to us by my wifes hairdresser as the owner is a client of his also. In addition to our two young children (ages 12 and 7) we also had my two grown up sons from my first marriage (ages 32 and 29). I have to say that the property exceeded our expectations in every respect. It was immaculately furnished with ample room for everybody to have some space of their own. The pool was a terrific attraction after a long day at the theme parks. The stunning views over the golf course added to the enjoyment of a glass of wine at the end of a tiring day. We particularly liked the extra touches of a pool table and darts board in the garage, a Wii console, large flat screen TV and iPod docking station in the lounge area, flat screen TVs in two of the bedrooms and Wi-Fi access throughout the property. In addition, the alarm warning when the patio door to the pool area is opened is a great idea if there are young children in the party. The driving distance to the Disney theme parks was longer than we were used to on previous visits to Florida but the five times we went to Disney saw us from door to car park in 20/25 minutes maximum. We would have no hesitation going back to Hemingway Villa again and would strongly recommend this property to anybody who would like a quality home away from home. Oh, I almost forgot a massive Walmart is located just at the entry gates to Southern Dunes and Mannys Chophouse, which is only 2 minutes drive away, is a must for anybody who likes steak in a lively environment. Finally, I did not play Southern Dunes golf course this time but I have done previously and it is a terrific test of golf. The property would be ideal for a golfing holiday as well as a family holiday.

ADAM & LYNN SCHOFIELD 05/11/2012 We stayed at hemmingway villa Oct 2012, we found it it fantastic. Clean, spacious, safe, quiet. All the facilities you could require, with large supermarket and other stores just down the road. A few nice touches too with pool table, dart board, dvd player etc. a bit of thought into it to for families with a pool guard to stop wandering children. location wise ideal for disney etc and on a main artery road for access to other places in Florida. would definateley use again and can recommend. just dont bank on the club house being open after 6pm.

Matt Jagger 05/07/2012 8:38pm WOW! what can I say about Hemingway Villa!?!? Exceeding expectations does not even begin to cover it. We were looking forward to a Holiday of a lifetime and the perfect base goes a long way to making this a reality. The location for all the main attractions that Orlando has to offer is Spot On combined with the privacy and luxury of this villa. The property is maintained to almost Celebrity standards, with everything you would need and more for a long or short break. You could easily holiday for 2 weeks or 2 months here. The residential area feels safe for families with a great supermarket on your doorstep. A golf lovers paradise! (is this is your bag?) and the pool/outside terrace area is just what you need after a long day on your feet! I would recommend this to anyone I came into contact with looking to holiday in Florida. Well done to all involved in maintaining and making this property available for the discerning tourist. THANK YOU - WE WILL BE BACK!

Sarina Ratcliffe-Jones 09/06/2012 6:58pm We have just arrived back from our family holiday in Orlando and I must say how fantastic the villa is.The location was perfect ,we had everything we needed in the villa and more! Highly recommended , we will be booking again. You must visit Mannys Chophouse and Blizzard Beach for a great day out.

Patrick Moran 10/12/2011 2:46:07 am Location! Location!! Location!!! This is one of the main qualities of the villa. As an avid golfer, this is an ideal setting, overlooking the golf course. You can sit on the patio by the pool early morning and watch the golf while having your coffee. you are also close to many prime golf courses. The villa is a very spacious and comfortable place to relaxin the evening and the games room has lots of comfy seating. The cleanliness of the villa was exceptional. Airport - 30min Disney -15min Mannys Chophouse -5 min Walmart -5 min What else would you need? Cant wait to return for more golf :))

Carole & David Atkinson 27/10/2011 10:36:56 pm We stayed at the villa in August (4 adults & 3 children) and we could not recommend it enough. It has EVERYTHING you could need and more. We loved all the little extras such as books, cool bag, pram etc. we found it clean, comfy and well set out. The pool & BBQ were perfect on days off. To top it off Maria was efficitent, professional & very helpful. A villa set out with families in mind! We cannot wait to go back! Oh and the beds are comfy perfect after a park day!


we have just returned from a fabulous week at this villa. It is clean and well equipped with everything you need for a family. There is 24 hour security on the gate and a wall mart on your front door! My hubby played golf on the resort and said that the course was excellent. I would also recommend a visit to nearby mannys chophouse. We eat there once and got take out the villa twice which was so handy. As a regular visitor to Florida I can honestly say this was the nicest villa weve stayed in and I would highly recommend it!

The Kenny Family 30th June 2011 We were extremely impressed by the villa. Six of us (four adults and two children) had two great weeks at Hemingway. The accomodation is superb and has great views over the great golf course. The chlldren absolutely loved the pool after a long day at the parks. All in all we cannot recommend the place highly enough. Thanks Maria.

chris matthew family Thu, 23 Jun 2011 2:55:27 pm last day of a great family holiday the villa was nice and had plenty of room for the 4 adults and 2 children.the pool was a god send after a day at the parks and so easy to grab the groceries on the way home from walmart to have a night in instead of going out every night like you have to in a hotel.the villa was large and clean with some nice touches like 100+tv channels and dvd player with films to watch.the family had a vote and we all want to come back again 10/10 thanks maria

I stayed with three friends on a golfing holiday in early november 2010. It is a golfers paradise location wise. Staying with the view of the third green of the superb southern dunes course,and many top quality courses within 30-40 mins dirve away. Wifi is a big bonus as we booked courses at discount rates on www.golfnow.com the morning we were going to play. We saved as much as $90 at mystic dunes.If you stay here i would recomend manys chop house the steaks are massive and tasty.Overall I would highly recomend staying here, the villa was very clean and well positioned.

we stayed from 8/9/10 for a week. The villa is in an excellent location. it gives the flexibility to visit Mickey but far enough away so you dont have to see him every day!!! My husband plays golf and says that the golf course is an excellent one. The villa is extremely comfortable and is a haven at the end of a very hot day. Pool was lovely for days when you just wanted to lounge around.

Your management guy was really helpful, he came round on our first day to check we were ok the walmart being so close was really good, location was great & away from the Disney hype, lovely villa.

We really enjoyed our stay at this Villa. It has a modern feel and a stunning view over the golf course. The cable TV, Wii and internet access are a great bonus. We especially liked Southern Dunes because you can walk out at night and have a couple of drinks without the need to drive. This isnt something we have been able to do at other Villa communities we have stayed at.

This was my 6th visit to Southern Dunes and as on my previous visits the accomodation and facilities were 1st class! The Villa has been recently redecorated so was bright and fresh...the internet and wi were real winners with my 15 year old son. The views were stunning overlooking the golf but still private. Southern Dunes and its proximity to Disney offers both the comforts of home with the option of always having something exciting to do each day. The local facilities make this a relaxing and exciting holiday experience for the whole family. I would never stay in a hotel this is a far more relaxing and you dont take any dirty clothes home with you!!!
