Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We are Gillian and Dennis Carter. Shark Shack is the name selected through a democratic vote won by the kids. We live in Mississauga, just outside Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We all came down in February with Granny from England to escape the record cold in Canada and record wet in England. Two kids are in University, one is working, Gillian is a Community Nurse and I just retired.

Why Southern Dunes (Haines City, FL, USA):
We take alot of pride in keeping our place clean and fully self sufficient. We rented Vacation Homes in the area for many years before we bought and understand what vacationers want and need for a worry free vacation. You will be 15 minutes from Attractions yet will find tranquility in this green escape from the crowds. Front and back views overlooks the lovely Southern Dunes Golf Course. Relax on the pool deck for morning coffee and enjoy a relaxing dip just steps from the kitchen and dinning area. Evening brings beautiful and colourful sunsets with no buildings in sight. Southern Dunes is a lovely Palm tree filled community. Access is controlled by a 24 hour guardian. We picked this as the best area after a few years of looking at all of the Vacation Homes Communities in the Orlando area we found that there is no better area and our house is the best location in the best area.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Privacy and tranquilty makes our place a perfect place to rest and enjoy your much needed vacation. Dennis is a golfer and there are more than 20 courses within 15 minutes, but you will be on the best. Gillian loves the Outlet Malls for shopping and they are within a 25 minute drive. The kids love that all the attractions are so close, again within 20 minutes. You will be within walking distance of groceries, Ice Cream, fast food, Liquor Store, Nails Services and much more. It is easy to relax and enjoy all the benefits of a 'Resort Like' experience. A well equiped gym and tennis courts are an enjoyable walk down Palm line streets.
