Overview

About the property

3BR Golf-Course Vacation Rental Haines City, sleeps six.

Villa Bonita is located at Southern Dunes, a quiet, friendly and relaxing neighborhood twenty minutes away from Disney World. The community is set on an 18-hole, true gem, Golf Digest 4-star-rated championship golf course. Even if you do not play golf, Southern Dunes is a great place to stay because of its natural beauty. The subdivisions are separated from each other by the fairways of the golf course.

This well-appointed, spacious villa features fast wireless internet enabling you to surf the internet and access your email, a 32 inch LCD HD TV and a 27 inch TV, a DVD player, DVR recorder, expansive volume ceilings, tiled floor, an open and fully-fitted kitchen, and a master bathroom with a garden tub and large walk-in shower. There is an additional bathroom with a walk-in shower with a rainshoweheadr, a living room and a master bedroom with sliding glass doors that lead to a roofed-in porch and a south facing screened-in swimming pool with a furnished deck near the pool. There is a 24 hours guard-gated entrance.

Special features around the villa include the Southern Dunes 18-hole championship golf course and the private neighbourhood park with preservation areas and a landscaped lake.

The beauty of Southern Dunes is that, while being able to relax in a 'country club' atmosphere in a beautiful villa, you are only twenty five minutes away from Disney's main gate and central Florida's many attractions (avoiding the traffic jams on the other roads leading to Disney). You will have the best of both worlds... Inside Southern Dunes you will have local amenities that include tennis courts, a community swimming pool, a play area and a clubhouse with restaurant and bar. And just minutes away you will find Winn-Dixie supermarket and Wal-Mart at the gate, and Eagle Ridge Mall nearby on Highway 27.

Reactions from guests after their vacation:

'The weather was great and the kids loved the pool. It was a little cool in the evening but it did not stop my kids from swimming. The golf course was great.

The carts had a computer which showed the exact distance to the green no matter where your ball was. Having Wal-Mart in walking distance was very convenient. The driving distance was not to far to the parks and we went to St. Petersburg beach for a day. We had a very enjoyable vacation.'

'We were so happy to get to the villa and we were absolutely thrilled to see how beautiful it was. Very open, bright and spacious. It was very, very clean and neat when we walked in the front door. We were so comfortable and right away it felt like home. Your villa is the perfect place for a family to stay. My grandsons spent hours in the swimming pool, and loved swimming in the night. Our vacation was wonderful and we definitely plan to stay at your villa again on our next trip.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent two weeks at Villa Bonita. A wonderful stay. What a luxury to step out of bed and to be able to swim in your own swimming pool. We enjoyed the Disney parks and the shopping very much. It is easy to get from Villa Bonita to everything Florida offers. The contact with the owner went fine, but also with the man on the spot. We can certainly recommend this villa and hope that we will be able to return. Until then we can fortunately see the photo's on the site and look back with warm feelings.

Nice house with nice accommodations and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and i stayed at this property for a weekend and we absolutely loved it, the house is really well kept, clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. It has most of the things you need to make your stay easy. Quite and clean neighborhood. At the beginning it seemed a little far from the parks and tourist attractions but Not at all it was 25-30 minutes away and the best of all is the location of this property with lots of shopping centers and restaurants in less then 3 mins within reach!!!! I would definitely book this property again and I truly recommend it. The manager Mr. Wilhelm was very nice and helpful.

Much better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The private pool was a hit with my family. The house was very clean adequately equipped. Not far from legoland which was our reason for staying. Highly recommend this property.

Fit our every need!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the villa Bonita! Thank you so much for allowing us to check in earlier than the expected time. Our kids loved the pool! The house is very open, spacious, and clean! Legoland was 20 min away and all our grocery needs are few min away. So convenient.

Great home in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we rented this home. We appreciated the owner being pet friendly as that saves us on hefty boarding fees. The kids loved swimming in the pool daily. The home was clean and well laid out for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is lovely and my husband really enjoyed the golf course! We visited Disney and the drive was only about 20-25 minutes. The home was a great break from the the chaos of the parks. If we travel the area again, we will return to this home!!

Very relaxing a home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house is very centrally located to everything you could need. Our only concerns were that there was no measuring spoons, only two measuring cups, over 8 burnt out lights, and the pool had metal debris in it. All small things that we were able to work around. We would rent again and not think twice about it.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home at 2288 Mallory Circle in Haines City. The home is what you would want for your own. The pool was heated. Perfect Vacation. The only thing I would have liked at this home would be a electric mixer, more bowls for serving meals and ceiling fans would be an added plus. Thanks Wilhelm & Henny for renting us your beautiful home.
