Southern Dunes townhome description

24 Hour Manned Secure
Overlooking 4th hole
2 minutes from clubhouse
Vaulted ceiling
Sleeps 8
2 queen bedrooms
1 twin room (2 twin beds)
Queen sleeper sofa

Set in the famous 24 hour secure Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club, this lovely privately owned home is more than fully-equipped for the perfect vacation.

Accommodation is in 2 queen size bedrooms both with ceiling fans and 1 bedroom with 2 twins, plus ceiling fan, all linens are good quality. The large tropical feel master bedroom is equipped with cable t.v., DVD, ceiling fan and has views over the golf course, the ensuite has double sized bath and large shower with thick fluffy towels. There is also a new Queen sleeper sofa in the lounge.

Open plan full kitchen with breakfast bar, the formal dining area leads to large open plan lounge which has a double height ceiling for a great cool, spacious feeling and our home has the added convenience of lovely wooden floors downstairs and deep pile carpet upstairs - kitchen and bathrooms are tile. There is cable T.V with DVD and a CD player in the lounge with a large selection of discs both DVD and CD to choose from plus games and plenty of books. It includes free unlimited local and long distance calling to the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as wireless high speed internet.


Try the putting green or driving range at the clubhouse just across the road (2 mins) before having breakfast in our beautiful screened Florida room which overlooks the fourth hole. Or put your feet up in the padded rocker with a good book from our library. Watch the birdlife parade past - cranes, egrets and ibis as you plan your day. Southern Dunes is an award PGA championship golf course ranked number 6 in Florida in Golf Digest 2007 - 2008.

A short four minute stroll takes you to our community pool large enough for a good cool down swim, complete with chairs and loungers, you often have it to yourselves as it is for the use of our road only. There is a small gym/workout room for the use of Southern Dunes guests at the Forest Hills clubhouse a short walk from the house.

Disney is only 20 minutes away along with Sea World and all that Orlando has to offer. In the opposite direction down the 27 is the newly opened LegoLand.

Not too far from the coast for a day at the beach, west for the Gulf beaches or east for the Atlantic. Catch a launch from Kennedy Space Centre (dates and times on their website), you can watch from Cocoa Beach.

Sited at the entrance to Southern Dunes is a 24 hour Wal-Mart, Winn Dixie and a bank plus plenty of restaurants - Manny's is a must , great food, amazing atmosphere.

Sorry no pets. We have made this a home from home with original artwork and comfortable furniture, not just a rental. Many extra features (thoughtful items like hairdryers, cool box, pool/beach towels, pool toys and beach chairs). We spend three months of the year here so it really is set up as a home not just an investment opportunity.

We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: As we approached retirement we wanted to spend as much time in sunny Florida as we could so purchased our home on Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club and have never regreted it. After renting for many years and often feeling let down by small things that make a big difference we decided we could do a lot better. So now we ensure that all details no matter how small are taken care of (quality towels and linens) - plenty of DVD's, CD's, books etc. Our home doesn't have that bland look of most rentals it is welcoming and vibrant. As an artist I have been busy painting the local wildlife and views of Florida which adds to our homes comfortable atmosphere. We enjoy sharing our home with our guests and love the feedback and glowing comments from our many visitors.

                  Why the Owner Chose Southern Dunes:
                  We loved the central location close to the real Florida with it's many nature reserves and being so near to the amusement parks was a bonus for grandchildren. The setting of Southern Dunes Golf & County Club was particularly appealing and being in Haines City with it's local market, bandstand and it's small town feel. We weren't disappointed we have lovely neighbours up and down our road - everyone is so friendly and welcoming. They really make you feel part of the community even though we are only there three months of the year.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  With both east and west coast beaches being just over an hour away you have a great choice. Just across the road from the clubhouse means you can drive your cart to pick up your clubs and you never miss a tee off time. The clubhouse restaurant/bar is great for Friday or Saturday nights and the Sunday buffet is well worth sampling. Across the 27 is Manny's which is quite famous in the area and an experience our guests enjoy - but ring ahead it is always busy with great atmosphere, happy hour 4 - 7. With our agents close by our guests have the added security of back up should they need any assistance.
