Why Angie Johnston chose Haines City

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.

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… 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!!

This is an awesome property, a do again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home to spend time in. It was extremely clean, the linens were of good quality. The awning over the pool deck was a life saver on hot days. The owner is very accommodating. Location is great for all kinds of activities. We had everything we needed and more for the 2 1/2 months we were there. There are 2 bikes available, pool toys, etc. Looking forward to spending another winter at our home away from away!

✨ Great Holiday Villa 😎🇺🇸☀️

Would highly recommend this lovely property. Great base for the Orlando area and not far from Tampa and Clearwater either. Nice pool and view over the golf course. No complaints 😊

Best experience with rental homes in Florida!!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews, but this property deserves it. My wife was impressed with the cleanliness of Angie's vacation home. We have rented many homes in Florida over the years and none have come close to this property. Angie was quick to respond to all of our inquiries. the bed was comfortable [very important after spending all day at the parks], the property had everything you need. We are definitely looking forward to coming back next time! We have found our home away from home!
