About Dunes Property Management

We enjoy our holidays in Florida and have renovated this villa so that we can share it with our families and guests. We want everyone to enjoy this home from home whilst on vacation.

Dunes Property Management purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dunes Property Management chose Haines City

People buy property all over the world and although this villa is 8,000 away from the Scotland, it is the ideal home from home. The journey is not too arduous, in fact from Newcastle, England we can be in our villa in 10 hours travel time from home, just need to add the time at the airports. A place that we can bring the family, to the ideal vacation location; Disney and other world renowned facilities, golf, gulf and Atlantic seaside resorts and much much more, whilst resting in the fantastic facilities of this Floridian villa. We don't want to be greedy, keeping it for ourselves, but want you to share before we come again.

What makes this villa unique

We have been visiting the USA for 10 years and Florida a number of times. Experience and adventure has shown this area and in particular Southern Dunes to be the ideal vacation location. Although situated within the security controlled complex of Southern Dunes, the villa has an independent alarm and security system. For our friends from the USA this holiday villa is home from home, with all the comforts in a great part of Florida.

Great homely villa

  • 5 of 5

Perfect villa had everything we needed, good sized TVs in all rooms. We needed a travel cot and management dropped us one off the same day. Loved the fact that we had Walmart, checkers, McDonalds and lots of other eateries close by that we even walked to them some nights. we have stayed in southern dunes before and we love it here, its a very quiet and friendly community. we went in the busy season of april/may and it was quite busy on the roads, but other than that would recommend this villa we had an excellent stay and would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review, we were so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We try to keep our villa to the highest standards, for ourselves and our guests. Southern Dunes is a great place to own a villa, so central and easy access to many parks and both coasts. The facilities we have in the area offer all that is required for holidaymakers and 'snowbirds'. We look forward to seeing you again and maybe you'll tell all your friends and family of our 'Home from Home'.

The villa was good, service excellent, quiet area, Walmart, restaurants, and shops is in the area,

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything we needed. Service was excellent, had problem with WiFi, we call for assistance and it was resolved, problem with TV and cable and was resolved within 15 minutes, quick response by Ian & Julia, ac was very good, rooms were clean, quiet area, their is a lot off shops, restaurants, Walgreens, Walmart , CVS an everything You need in the area and some within walking distance. Driving to the parks was a little bit far, about 30 minutes, knowing that after a long day in the park and returning to a home was the drive worth it, the feeling to go back to a home, sit on a couch, relax, no wait time to take a shower, have a cup of Thea, coffee or a glass of wine and watching TV/Cable. Would recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for sending a very positive review and great to hear you had an excellent stay. Although the villa is 25 minutes from the Parks, 10 minutes from Legoland it is very central for many other facilities and being on a fabulous golf course. We were sorry to hear there was a difficulty with the TV operation but information is available in the information pack to assist. The cinema quality surround sound system to the 60" 3D Smart TV is not standard and needs familiarity. The broadband and WiFi is usually very good, with easy sign in procedures. It was good to know, as usual our property management company were on hand to help. We very much look forward to welcoming you back again.

The House lived up to our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained property, very spacious especially with 4 women in the house, plenty of Bathrooms. The layout was good having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom . Was well equipped and the TV great. Pool table and darts board in garage.

When we arrived the storm had caused a problem with the water in the pool, no problem phoned maintenance and the pool was cleaned same day.

Ideal location for the Airport, shops and restaurants. Manny's Chop House was great, went a few times also went to Olive Garden. Great value plus you get to take home what you cannot eat.

Most attractions approx 30mins away, petrol cheap and we soon got used to driving. It was nice to chill out round the pool.

Overall great house, great location, would go again. Unfortunately Golf course closed due to maintenance but would certainly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting a positive review for our property. The villa is situated in a most sort after location close to all the Parks and central Florida. We were very pleased to here you were happy with our immediate response and successful cleaning up after the storm; these occur from time to time between the long hot and sunny spells and sometimes require tidying up. Glad to hear you were able to relax by our south facing pool for all day sun. The lanai area is also good to shade from the sun when needed. The golf course, which is one of the best in Florida, has undergone major renovation works, this unfortunately has meant the course had to be closed. We hope to get our golfers to come back soon when the course is re-opened. There are many good courses in the area and the villa is centrally placed to use as a base for these. We very much look forward to you returning as many of our guests do.

Excellent property and holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were sceptical at first but this property was above expectations. The gated community was a comfort. Ian and Julia were great to deal with, all of our concerns and problems were addressed immediately. I played the golf course 6 times and it was fantastic. The. TV remotes took some getting used to but minor problem. The dining area was small for more than 4 people , a BBQ OR grill had to be rented which was a hassle. The grill was small and not enough BTUS. NOT owners fault. We would definitely rent this property again. We were centrally located to parks, Orlando, etc. So was great for commuting. It was within walking distance to grocerys Walmart or other dining establishments. We did a lot of walking around southern dunes area and everyone was friendly. Hopefully we will be able to rent this property again next winter.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and comments. We are so pleased that the villa exceeded your expectations, as we always try to ensure you have accommodation that is like 'home from home'. The golf course is of a very good standard and great that our villa is part of such a complex, one of the reasons we chose it. Being very close to many amenities, also a superb plus. We were sorry to hear the BBQ (hired from elsewhere) was not of good enough standard, however should we get many requests for BBQs we’ll review our policy and maybe purchase one. We do hope you will stay with us again.

The Perfect Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place to stay, the house is very well appointed, spacious, fantastic setting with a nice pool with sunshine all day. There is a fantastic golf course on your doorstep with a very friendly club house. There are plenty of other golf courses, shopping outlets in Orlando were easy to get to, fantastic bargains too. Of course the theme parks are in close proximity so always something for families. I cannot recommend this place enough, just brilliant.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind comments and excellent review. We are mindful this holiday home is located centrally to so many great attractions and facilities. Our villa is a home from home with so much more to offer those wanting a perfect stay, as you have stated. We look forward to you returning, as we do to all our guests, and slowly but surely we are getting many repeat bookings.
