Car: Recommended

Our home is located just south of Orlando, in the gated community of Southern Dunes Golf and Country club which boasts a top ranked championship golf course with Club House, restaurant and practice area, it also has tennis courts, a playground, gym, 3 community pools and a boating lake, the whole area has lush grounds that are impeccably maintained and great to walk around. The villa is also only minutes from Wal-Marts and Winn-dixie, fast food outlets, banks and restaurants. Southern Dunes is only 5 minutes from Haines City with all its amenities and only 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport, it's a 20 minutes' drive to Disney and all the other parks and attractions of International Drive and all that great outlet shopping and the driving is so easy. Or if you would like to go to the beach the coast is a little over an hour's drive east or west the Gulf coast or Cocoa beach. Southern Dunes is close to everything but is quite and peacefull.

Other Activities: childrens playground and gym

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hello, as you know my name is Beth and I'm the person who organises our family holiday home on Southern Dunes. What else? Well I'm English, I live in Devon, I'm middle aged, have a husband and daughter, all the usual stuff but what is more important is the importance I put on providing a good quality stay for my guests and that is how I think of the people who stay at our home, my guests. I love to travel and the accommodation is very important to me, nothing spoils a holiday as much as bad accommodation and that is why I work hard to make sure everything is as it should be at our home. My family and friends spend several months a year at our home so we can keep everything up to scratch, we change, add or improve something on every visit ! I think it is important for guests to have confidence when booking their holiday home and I do all that I can to make this happen. From the first enquiry onwards I always answer emails quickly, usually within a couple of hours, my phone number is on our listing and guests have my address so I'm always here to help. The happiness of my guests is important to me. For me, one of the things that gets me through a tough day is the thought of sitting on the deck, warm, peaceful and with family and friends and it would be great to think that others may find that too.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Dunes:
What we love about our home is it’s size and location. We often holiday with family and friends and in the past we have found the accommodation disappointing, technically it has enough beds for all of us but it really isn't comfortable to spend time in, you feel you have to go out to get some space. Well not here we have a good size home, 12-foot vaulted ceilings, a large south facing deck and pool, a large family room that overlooks the pool, as does the master bedroom and we have 2 bathrooms. So we can all enjoy the space and comfort of a larger holiday home. Something else I love about the location of our home, is it’s only a few minutes from Win-Dixie, Wal-Mart, the bank, restaurants and take-aways, so I don't have to keep asking my husband to drive me, I can just walk. Southern dunes is a very safe place to walk or jog, there are friendly and helpful security guards at the gate house 24/7 and they also patrol the community but more than that there are residents and other holiday makers about all the time. Southern Dunes isn't one of the ghost communities that people just return to at night to sleep. And then there’s the golf! The course itself makes a beautiful backdrop, it meanders through the houses giving Southern Dunes an open spacious feel, it’s just great to look at, even if like me you don’t play. But if you do like a game the course is nationally ranked and both enjoyable and challenging to play. The clubhouse serves good food too and of course it is all open to the public. I hope to welcome you to our home and that you enjoy your holiday as much as we do, my management company and I will do all that we can to make your stay all that you want.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We bought our home in 2005 for all the family to enjoy and all three generations (hopefully four soon) do at every opportunity. Southern Dunes is great for us, it is close to everything but not too close, we have Highway US 27 running straight past the front gate. it goes north to Orlando and south to Miami, but when you're relaxing on the deck it doesn't intrude and we are just 10 minutes from Interstate 4 Highway (I-4) which takes you east to the parks and all the other attractions of Orlando or west to Tampa, Clearwater or St Pete’s. The airport is convenient but we're not on the flight path, we can walk to the supermarkets but there’s no traffic jams or noise from them, we have restaurants and takeaways within walking distance as is the clubhouse and the golf is outstanding, not just on Southern Dunes but also in the surrounding area. We can chill out at home, even in the winter we spend hours relaxing around the pool, being south facing makes all the difference. We can enjoy the local area with Legoland, Bok gardens, an airboat ride or local shopping at Posner Park or we can be at the parks or “major” shopping in just 20 minutes. A little farther afield is NASA, Daytona or the beaches on the east or west coast, we are central to so much. We're in a great location, there’s so much more to central Florida than the parks, as if they're not enough in themselves! I do also like the Haines city area because it has not been over developed; we still have small towns, orange groves and peace and quiet, it’s great to come home after a busy day.
