Why Angie Johnston chose Southern Dunes

Our family discovered this awesome Southern Dunes location in 2011 on VRBO and decided we wanted to be a part of it. We love everything about the location, it is central to everything, safe, beautiful, full of things to do. We also have other family spending winters nearby so it keeps our family close together.

Amazing week in Haines City, Fl,

  • 5 of 5

Hi , Me and my wife stayed at this location for a week on Nov 4-10 2017. facilities and heated pool were just perfect for our needs. House was very clean and all furnished to cook your own meal. Beds are comfortable and TV and WIFI worked well. Free phone service to USA and Canada is included.

Visit disney two days (25-30 minutes drive) when no traffic on I-4.

We also played few games of golf on the Southern Dunes on which this house backyard faced Holes #2. This is an amazing golf course for the price. Groceries, drug stores, liquor stores are very near and the location is very safe and we feel secured to go out and enjoy walking and bicycling. For few times we needed to reach out the super-intendant( Gary) or even the owner, they were very responsive and able to answer our questions. We are recommending this location and we will return if our needs remains the same.

Was a great experience and we will share this with friends that are looking to visit Orlando areas.,

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It is very well appointed with books, games, plenty of towels for the pool, and even a few kids toys. We were also excited to find a gas grill and a few bikes. The mattresses were extremely comfortable and we slept very well. We stayed here to visit Legoland which is a short drive away. The property is close to several grocery stores, restaurants, and a seafood/veggie stand. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks for offering such a comfortable home at a reasonable price!

amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay at this property. The house is clean and updates have been done since our first stay. The owner of this home always answers emails quickly. We will definitely stay again.

I have stayed at other homes in the area, when this home wasn’t available, but this home is our favorite.

Amazing home and great pool. I feel very safe with this being a gated community.

We love this home and highly recommend renting. You will not be sorry.

What a wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We left paradise for reality….YIKES!! Our family has been privileged to spend time in rental properties in Wasaga Beach, we loved it, located right on the beach with a pool, we have stayed at incredibly beautiful condos in New Smyrna beach, the one was 2500 square feet, the master bedroom c/w ensuite was bigger than the first floor of our home, but none of those units made us feel like we were at home. Your home was so welcoming and filled with warmth clearly showing what a great and loving family you are. Things could not have been more perfect, as usual the house was spotless, loved every minute of watching the golfers in the morning, amazing how many are already ticked at the second hole, the sand pit is a riot, met a couple of really nice golfers looking for their balls!? Frank bought an air mattress that had a pillow area and mesh bottom, what a great relaxer, had some wine, put on my sunglasses, laid in the pool and took a nap…..now that was awesome. Met the pool guy, lucky for me he had a lighter, although he doesn’t smoke, so I traded a bottle of beer for a lighter…pretty good deal since I did not have to leave the patio, I know who gets that lucky!! It was hard to leave!!

Oh yeah, my favorite….I am a Law & Order geek, I have been watching it since its first episode, I was able to watch Law & Order, the original, Law & Order Criminal Intent and Law & Order, Special Victims Unit, marathons on all day, each one with its own designated channel, thank you for subscribing to that particular TV package!!

We decided that the next time we travel to Florida we would like to stay there for at least a month!!, we absolutely love it there!!
