OVERLOOKING THE 18TH TEE!

NO REAR NEIGHBORS!

VERY PRIVATE!

Don't delay! Prime dates are hard to get in this highly sought after house. These prime dates usually fill 4 to 6 months in advance. Don't wait!

If you are looking for a place to call home during your vacation this one has it all.

A private pool with no rear neighbors and the decks of the houses on either side cannot be seen from our pool deck. It is one of the most private pools in Southern Dunes. The solar heating makes sure the water is perfect for most of the year. Electric heat is available and recommended for the cooler months. The attached hot tub is a perfect way to end your day and unwind.

The home features 2200 sq feet of living space with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 3 upstairs. The Master bedroom comes with a King size bed, 46 inch TV and an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower and tub. From this room you can walk directly out onto the pool deck and slip into the hot tub. The front bedroom has a Queen size bed with easy access across the hall to the bathroom that includes a walk-in shower. Bedroom #3 is upstairs and overlooks the golf course and pool. It includes a Queen bed and 32 inch TV. The other two bedrooms on the upper floor have 2 single beds and TVs in each. All three rooms share a bathroom that has a shower and tub.

We have furnished the pool area as an extra outside living room. There is a dining table with 4 chairs and lots of luxury loungers and armchairs. A grill is available for you if you would like to enjoy some outdoor cooking. A safety fence has been added to protect the little ones. You will be looking over the golf course directly at the 18th Tee Box.

During the day the sun is on the pool from early morning until late afternoon. It is perfect for sunbathing. If you need to escape the sun yet want to stay outside there is a large covered area steps from the pool.

During the evening the privacy of the pool and hot tub really stand out. No rear neighbors means there are no lights from other homes blocking your view of the night sky and the stars.

The Living Room has 2 full sized sofas and one side chair for comfortable seating for you and your guests. Available with the 55 inch TV is a DVD player, Wii, Netflix and Ipod speakers.

There is a separate dining room with seating for 6.

The fully-equipped kitchen with seating for 4 and stainless steel appliances and separate laundry room make life that much more pleasant when you have to make the effort to cook or do laundry.

There is unlimited high-speed Internet access for your laptop or other personal devices.

You can make free local and long distance phone calls (Canada and US) from the house phone.

The clubhouse is only a 5 minute walk where you can enjoy an excellent restaurant & bar. The golf course is one of the finest and most affordable in Florida. There are at least 10 other courses nearby for the golfer in the family.

This is a luxury privately owned vacation home, near the attractions of Disney and Orlando but away from the hectic rush of Kissimmee. It is perfect for those who want a quiet peaceful vacation. All the furnishings and equipment are top quality.

About Paul or Nancy Hillman

We rented several homes in Southern Dunes over the years and finally decided that it was time to buy our dream home. We hope you like it.

Paul or Nancy Hillman purchased this villa in 2011

Why Paul or Nancy Hillman chose Haines City

Over the past 25 years we have stayed all over the state of Florida and have not found a place where we are as comfortable as we are when we stay at Southern Dunes. The secure community, excellent golf course and close proximity to the theme parks add up to making this an excellent location.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Haines City to attend my son's college baseball spring tournament, which took place in Auburdeen and Winter Haven. Proximity to both was perfect. The house itself was FANTASTIC! Plenty of room, kitchen had every appliance (even a crockpot, which was helpful after a long day on the fields). The pool and hot tub were great, private, clean. Definitely pay the extra for the heat/hot tub. We would go back to the same house in a second.

Wonderful home to spend time celebrating with Family.

  • 5 of 5

We have been in Southern Dunes for 5 years now. This home was the best fit for us by far! Spacious pool area, spacious common area and very large 5 bedrooms fit our family well!!

We had a wonderful time communicating with the owners and highly recommended this home for your family.

We celebrated our sons senior year at the Homeschool World Series and his team won Division 2 champs and he played exceptional baseball (All American award) that our family got to witness as we all traveled from 3 states.

I will never forget our 10 days we were blessed with.

One proud momma

We will be back!

A lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house. The house was clean and everything was as described in the text and pictures. The neighbourhood is nice and feels safe. We were there playing golf and found the house to be very well located. There are plenty of golf courses nearby and the traffic is much lighter than if you stay in the Orlando/Kissimmee area. Having Walmart so close is also very convenient. We played Southern Dunes and found the course to be fun to play and in a good condition. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this house to others.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive feedback. The golf course recently received a multi-million dollar upgrade to the greens and tee boxes and is in great shape. We too love the challenging course that is in our back yard!
