Why The Owner chose Southern Dunes

We have been vacationing in Florida almost every year since 1982 and love all the Disney Theme Park and other area attractions.

We stayed at several homes and areas over the years but Southern Dunes impressed us the most with the meticulous and beautiful grounds, the amenities offered to the guest, the security and the convenient location.

. Several stores, banks, video rental and restaurants are within walking distance.Its location is ideal because an it is very easy to get to where you are going. Take U.S. 27 to 4 East and your at Disney within 20 min. Take 4 West and you are on your way to Tampa and the gulf beaches, Tampa Aquarium, Zoo all within an hours drive..

What makes this villa unique

Over the years we have stayed in hotels, motels, condo and at Disney but for the last 10 years or so we started renting vacation homes and it is by far the way to go. You have room to roam, you can swim at 2 a.m. if you choose. You will want to get to the theme parks early; therefore, you can grab a fast breakfast at home and you are off.

We had a great time staying at this property. It definitely feels like home. The house is very clean and fully equipped with everything you may possibly need. The pool was also clean and pool toys was provided. Catherine sent me the email with all the information that was very helpful. We love that they provided tea and coffee. Also towels. It was the first time renting a house and will definitely do it again. The house is more beautiful in real life than the pictures. I would recommend anyone to rent from her. Our stay was very memorable at her home.

Feels just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a triathlon. There were 3 athletes and 2 spectators. So three bikes and all the accompanying equipment, workout clothes for days, just a lot of stuff. We all had plenty of room! The bedrooms were comfy and the house really did have a “home” feel. This was the perfect place for us to rent and would absolutely rent it again!

Wonderful house! Amazing owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Catherine's beautiful vacation home for a little over a month, from August to October. We are locals who were between buying and selling a home.

I've never stayed in a more well stocked vacation home. She's thought of almost every detail. From infant to adult, she's got it covered. Movies, board games, game room, toys, first aid kit, sunscreen, flashlights, pool toys, strollers, etc, literally something for everyone. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with quality dishes and most anything you'd need to fix a meal at home. She also provided plenty of bath towels, pool towels, wash cloths, spare sheets, and blankets.

We were there during Hurricane Irma and Catherine went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and safety. Since we're locals, we're accustomed to hurricanes and had plenty of supplies. However, we talked, texted, and messaged regularly with Catherine. She offered to purchase lanterns in case we lost power and offered to ship a generator when we did lose power. We were without power for nearly a week and what did she do? Gave us an extra week in her home. We're a family of 6, so vacation homes are usually more cost effective for us than hotels. We've stayed in vacation homes in several states and Puerto Rico. She is, without a doubt, the most compassionate, kind, and caring vacation home owner we've ever encountered.

There were plenty of restaurants and grocery stores(incl.Wal-Mart), with several right outside the community. Disney is only about 20 minutes away. The kids loved being closer so we could use our passes more.

We highly recommend her home to anyone looking for a vacation rental in Central Florida.

Owner's Response: Words cannot explain how grateful I am that I had the privilege of sharing my home with the Rodriquez family They not only cared for my home as if it were there own . They went far and above putting my mind st ease during the hurricane. They even went so far to replace a childs deck of cards even though I told them that was not necessary. That speaks volumes to their character. I really feel that I had been blessed sharing my home with them. They are guests that I will never forget and will always be thankful to

Far, Far Better Than The House We Rented In Same Area Less Than One Month Ago

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 enjoyable nights at this house in honor of our 9-year old grandson's birthday. What a fabulous experience! The home was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. It just simply has a "welcoming" aura. The owner was wonderful to work with, even calling us upon arrival to verify that everything was satisfactory. Our grandson loved the Star Wars room, and there was also a beautiful "princess room" that we didn''t use. The pool was clean and fun, and even has a privacy screen. Our entire experience was positive from the moment we entered the home. Our only regret was that we had only 3 full days in the Orlando area, which we devoted to Disney, Universal, and Legoland. We wish we had scheduled an extra day or two to just enjoy the home and pool.

In contrast, less than a month ago we stayed in the same area to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday. The home we rented then was considerably more expensive, but not nearly as clean or welcoming. The floors and windows were dirty, the carpet was filthy, the walls were in dire need of painting, there were missing slats in the blinds which prevented evening privacy, etc. That house conveyed a message of "I just want to rent this house to generate income". As an example, the owner charged $75 for use of a mini-grill which couldn't have cost much more than that brand new (we declined). In contrast, the home we occupied with our grandson conveyed a message of "I am proud of and care about this property, and I want my guests to truly enjoy themselves". Big difference!
