  • Amazing, Fantastic, Best Holiday Ever

    "Second time to visit (May 2013, September 2014). Five of us travelled (ages 60/30ish/3). We had been away earlier in the year and found a hotelroom rather small. In the hotel we would have to meet in the lobby & in the evening we would have to sit in someones bedroom. By renting this villa we had loads of room and we didnt have to have a meeting time. We would come back in the evening and just relax by the pool or in the sitting room. when you woke you could go and make breakfast or just relax by your own pool and not worry about lack of sunbeds or worry what time breakfast was at. There are many great things about this villa. There is plenty of space. We brought very little clothes , as with a washing machine & drier there, you could wash and dry your clothes easily & quickly. We nearly always made breakfast in the house but a few days we walked up the road to Dennys or Egg City (both only 20 minutes walk away or 5 minutes drive). We ate out most days but once or twice we order food in. There are so many different food outlets just across the road. We did eat in Mannys 4 nights (again 5 minutes away). One day, the 3 of us went to disney and my parents decided to stay at home. Because of the villas great location, they were able to walk to walmart, walk to get breakfast and enjoy some shops across the road. The location is brillant, We did the 4 disney parks, 2 universal parks and the best park of all, LegoLand. All these are within 30 minutes drive, We also visited both shopping outlets and both shopping malls. We all enjoyed the pool. There was plenty of sun beds for people who like to lie by the pool. The estate, house and pool are very well maintained and very secure. The villa has everything you need, including airconditing, plenty of choice on tv and a brillant kitchen incase you want to make your own breakfast/lunch/dinner. They also have a travel cot/ buggy / high chair and other items you might need. The firdge is very big so you can stock up on drinks/food or other items you might need. We have stayed in hotels but this villa is Paradise. Everything you need is within walking distance and it is a very family orientated villa. each bedroom has plenty of waredrobe space and room. Our flights were changed at the last minute and the owners allowed us to stay a few extra hours at the last minute so thank you for that. Again i would recommend this to anyone looking to enjoy Orlando. We have stayed on Internation Drive but this is much better."

  • An absolute Gem!!!

    "This townhouse was absolutely perfect. This was a family vacation that included my husband our 2 boys and their grandparents. We loved how clean and inviting this home was. My in-laws and I enjoyed the patio every morning. We watched the sun come up as the ground crew was getting the golf course ready for the day. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect home away from home. My family and I are already talking about our next stay. Thank you Jillian for making our vacation an absolute success!!!"

    "I have no hesitation in recommending this home as a base for your Orlando vacation. My wife and I have been visiting Florida every year for over 20 years and this home was the best equipped we've ever stayed in. As a couple we weren't able to take advantage of all the facilities (my wife refused to play pool with me) but a family would love it. The beds were comfortable and the fixtures and fittings in good order. The kitchen had every device known to man. It's reassuring to be in a gated community and the golf course is superb. Good supermarkets are close by and Manny's Chophouse is excellent for lunch or dinner."

Southern Dunes Travel Tips

Stay at Southern Dunes Vacation Rentals to Escape the Bustle

Many people want to visit Orlando during their vacation but they prefer to find lodging outside of the city. Haines City is a popular choice because it's outside the city bustle but close enough to Orlando for a day trip. Southern Dune vacation rentals are your best choice for lodging because they have much more space than a typical hotel room ensuring you will feel more at home during your vacation.

Visit a Theme Park

Orlando is just north of Haines City, so plan a day or two of vacation in the city. The most popular destinations in Orlando are Disney World and Universal Studios. Plan to spend several hours or an entire day at each theme park as there are tons of rides and attractions in each.

Saving Money on Meals

Southern Dunes vacation homes with full kitchens are great for vacationers on a budget. Dining out for every meal can add up quickly but when you stay at a hotel, you have no other choice. At one of the Southern Dunes vacation rentals, you can cook most or all of your meals to save lots of money. If you have the money, you should still dine out at a few local restaurants to sample the local flavor. A few popular restaurants include Beef O' Brady's and The End Zone.

Plan a Golfing Excursion

If you enjoy golfing, schedule a tee time at either the Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club or the Diamondback Golf Club. Some golf clubs have membership restrictions so be sure to call ahead and inquire about this. You should also call ahead to schedule a tee time for your golfing excursion. The Haines City / Orlando Disney villas have plenty of storage room for golf clubs if you want to bring yours along on vacation.
