Catch a rocket launch from Kennedy Space Centre (dates and times on their website), you can watch from Cocoa Beach.

Sorry no pets. We have made this a home from home with original artwork and comfortable furniture, not just a rental. We live there three months of the year so it is really geared up as a home. Many extra features (thoughtful items like hairdryers, cool box, pool/beach towels, pool toys and beach chairs). We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.
All bedrooms are on the second floor. Lovely tropical feel master overlooking the 4th hole has ceiling fan and ensuite with double sized tub. Cable T.V. and DVD player
Second and third bedrooms also have ceiling fans and are at the front of the house.
There is additional sleeping accomodation in the lounge area with a new queen size sofa bed....moreless

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. The setting of Southern Dunes Golf & County Club was particularly appealing and being in Haines City with 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.
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 added security.
Other Activities: We love visiting all the state parks in the area plus Bok Sanctuary for their gardens. Circle B Bar Reserve a drive away is well worth a visit for its nature and peacefulness.
Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club is centrally situated. There are plenty of shopping opportunities even the men get carried away.
A trip to Manny's Chop House just across the road is an experience we recommend to all our guests but ring ahead for a time, the food is fantasic, good value and the atmosphere is amazing.
Golf: Set in the famous 24 hour secure Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club. Southern Dunes is an award winning PGA championship golf course ranked number 6 in Florida in Golf Digest 2007 - 2008.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: After holidaying in Florida for years and coming up to retirement anticipating a longer vacation we decided to buy our own place. With our experience of renting we knew what holidaymakers appreciate and enjoyed making our house a welcoming home.
Why the Owner Chose Southern Dunes: The central location set in the real Florida appealed and the golf course house with its fabulous view just knocked us out. There is plenty to do in the area and lovely friendly neighbours.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: This is a beautiful house and being an artist I have enjoyed painting pictures to hang on all those blank walls. We love sitting out in the Florida room for breakfast or reading a book in the rocker.
Each time we go we do more to our home to make it as comfortable and welcoming as possible, we love having guests who seem to appreciate all we do to make it what it is - fabulous!
