There are great views of the golf course from the pool area and a decent amount of shade for the hot summers. A number of British guests have asked which way the pool faces - it faces approx South East so we get full sun from early morning to late afternoon but BE WARNED! the sun is very hot and in the summer heat it is more important to have shade than sun!
The 24 hour Wal-Mart at the community entrance offers a huge range of food and other goods and is only a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk away. There is a new Publix about 2 miles away which offers a wider range of food.

From Mulgrave, Canada Feb 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Jon's House at 1444park Place for 6 weeks. Everything was very good and anything you think you would need is there. A few minor problems but they were resolved immediately with out any further problem. We would definitely rent this house again should we decide to go back to Southern Dunes. It was a wonderful vacation in a great location.

From Larbert, United Kingdom Jul 2013

Great Location, with everything you would require and more for a home from home holiday. All you need is your toothbrush !
This home was spotlessly clean when we arrived and a great time was had by all.

From Lafayette Hill, USA Feb 2013

Yet again a wonderful home away from home. The home, the views all
anyone could ask for. The addition of the lighting pool side was lovely. Once again, the weather was perfect.

From Bellevue, USA Mar 2012

Great Villa - it was hour home away from home when not on the field!

From Viborg, Denmark Apr 2010

Excellent, beautiful home, and well looked after. We an issue on arrived which was sorted out very quick by the managers. They were very quick and helpful. We would come again.

From Easton, USA Mar 2010

The only reason for my poor review has to do with the pool and hot tub. We had requested the pool and hot tub to be heated. Although we requested the heating only two weeks prior to arrival, we were assured it would be heated. Upon arrival, the heat was not turned on. It took two days to get the temperature up. After we got in the pool, we found the bottom full of green slime. We had to exit the pool immediately and shower. We were unable to use the pool or hot tub the remainder of our stay. The pool cleaning people were there the day before we left to clean the pool.

The house was great and exceded our requirements. We come to Southern Dunes every year. If I could be assured the pool and spa would be clean, I would rent this home again next year.

Reply from Jon

This is our first poor review which we were obviously disappointed by. As a result we changed management and pool companies which has solved the issue.

Hi Jon & Fran, We all had a fantastic holiday at your villa and everyone agreed it was a great location and you had thought of everything, just sad we had to come home, oh well time to save for our next visit, we played a couple of rounds of golf and what a great course, the wallmart was very handy indeed and just to mention that the photos of the villa dont do it any justice, much nicer in real life. We will be recommending your home and will return ourselves some day, so thank you for everything, and can you ask your cleaning staff to look out for a childs pink nintendo ds game as our 8 yr old daughter lost hers on hol, we looked but just in case they come across it...thanks again Alan & Liz McKendrick .

Your villa was pretty much perfect from our view. It had the advantage of being one of those instinctive places where we knew how everything worked and where it was. In many villa’s they tend to forget the simple ordinary everyday things like suitable cutlery and crockery and plastic cups for outside. Yours was spot on.The TV’s in the kids bedrooms were fab (this was a real novelty for our two). And they worked! With lots of choice.One thing I try to remember is a small torch as seeing the key lock combinations in the dark after a 15 hour journey can sometimes be fraught. Perhaps leaving the outside light on may have helped since I forgot my torch this time. The pool area and golf course setting were ace. We never made our way to the clubhouse – but we would probably the next time.We’d look to come back again – if it all fitted

We had a fantastic time in Florida, your house is great, beautifully decorated, well maintained, lots of room, wonderfully equipped and the pool was lovely to relax in.The locations great as the men got to play some golf while the ladies went shopping, having a Wal-Mart just down the road was really helpful and being 24hrs was great to be able to do a shop when we first arrived and only 20mins drive from Disney. We watched some fantastic sunsets over the golf course while having a BBQ. In short we enjoyed it so much we are already talking about coming again next year and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.AndreaUK

"What a great home you have!. We really enjoyed the relaxing view from the pool area and the house was VERY clean and well equipped. Walmart was a 5 minute walk away (we could have spent days in there!). Thanks again"The ClarksHorhchurch, UK"The house was beautiful and very spacious. We loved the private pool! We appreciated the extra dining room so we could eat together. This house had all the comforts of home, including the garage!! Thanks Fran and Jon!!"Phil and Karen MundyIndiana"We had a wonderful stay, your house is lovely. Everything was very well taken care of and we all had a wonderful time. I found the management company very responsive and easy to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend your home to any of our friends. Communication with you and the management company was always very timely, the house was very clean and well kept and we found the location was great. The Wal-Mart so close was extremely convenient. My husband golfed at Southern Dunes a couple of times and said it was a great course"Tara"We had a great time at your place. We golfed Southern Dunes twice and really enjoyed the golf course. We actually golfed there last year but didn't remember that until we got there. I golfed from the gold tee boxes and hit the ball nice but those greens swallowed me up. They were lightning fast and it took me a long time to get use to them. The guy we were golfing with (on the 9th hole) kept putting up hill and couldn't make the plateau so if kept rolling back to him. He was having a complete hissy. He also hit every sand trap on that course. He was so frustrated that he asked the ranger how many sand traps the course had and they told him 181. Wayne golfed really well and shot a 77 from the back tees. Not bad for someone who hasn't golfed for 6 months. He too found the greens fast and had he not 3 putted a few holes, he would have had a great game. Anyways, thanks again for your place. It was fun." Tracy "We had a great time in Florida; your house was beautiful and in great condition; we found everything we needed.The pool was warm and got a lot of use! We spent a lot of our time hanging around the pool - some great 'downtime' which was exactly what we were looking for. Sharon Boston, MA"Thanks again for everything and we would not hesitate to rent the house again. I have already recommended you to a neighbor.""We had a wonderful time in Florida and played two rounds of golf at Southern Dunes and one at Falcon's Fire. Some what of a Utopia!. The house is beautiful.I want to thank you for all of your help and constant correspondence. It put me at ease to know that you cared about our experience. Please feel free to use us for a reference. We will pass along very positive reviews for you."NJ"He very much enjoyed the course. He has played some of the best. He said that Southern Dunes was a beautiful, well maintained course that offered a good challange." NJ"We have just returned from a lovely holiday - a great time was had by all. The villa was superb, clean and very well equipt."Phillips UK
