Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our families are from Ontario, Canada (Cambridge and Burlington) and we have been coming to Florida to vacation for many years. We have children ranging in ages from 5 - 21, who are avid golfers, theme park thrill seekers, beach bums and shopping junkies.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Dunes (Haines City, FL, USA):
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.
