About Dennis and Gillian Carter
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.
Dennis and Gillian Carter purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Dennis and Gillian Carter chose Haines City
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.
What makes this Villa unique
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.

Fantastic villa and service
Dennis and Gillian have a great villa at southern dunes. Their management company also do a great job.It is one of the cleanest villas we have stayed in on this community. It is in a fantastic setting, looking over the tee for the 3rd hole on the golf course, so some entertainment whilst sunbathing. We stayed for 2 weeks and would highly recommend this villa. Thank you.
Gillian and I thankyou for your kind words.
We are pleased to host your family and hope you return soon.
Ideal getaway for the two of us!
Lovely , clean villa, amazing location on the golf course! Thankyou!
Thank you Steve, we are looking forward to your return to Tranquility

The house is very small in comparison to other houses we’ve stayed in, I don’t know how 6 people would cope. The kitchen and the bathrooms are also very small.
This property is quite unloved and is in need of some updating, the 2 sofas are lovely but the rest is a bit shabby, the kitchen is well stocked but nowhere to put any food you buy. The beds have had a piece of foam put on top of the mattresses and this makes them very hot. Southern Dunes is lovely and well kept and having a man on the gate is good for security. There is no safe at this house so we were a bit concerned about leaving things in the house.
It’s not as nice as we expected and won’t come back to this house again.
Thank you for your review. We will take your feedback into consideration.
Cozy vacation villa
We enjoyed our stay at Dennis & Gillian's lovely villa. Everything was in order and the unit was clean. The pool was a refreshing end to the day. The neighborhood was quite and security at the gatehouse was attentive. And the icing to the cake, the beautiful Florida weather during our stay.
Gillian and I thank you for your kind words.
Your family is welcome anytime, remember the Florida sun shines on Sharkshack all year round.
A peaceful place
If you are looking for peaceful and quiet place this is your possible choice.
Another wonderful visit to the Shark Shack
This home offers everything you need to relax. The backyard is overlooking the golf course, which is beautiful and filled with birds chirping with joy. The home is clean and the pool is beautifully maintained. The owners are very helpful and worked very hard to make our dates work. The location inside Southern Dunes is well maintained and feels very safe. This location is about 20 minutes from Disney, but after a few trips back and forth it becomes easy to navigate. Haines City has everything you need and a super Walmart is just outside the gates of Southern Dunes gate house. We really enjoy this community and arranging dates with the owners is easy. This is a great location and we really look forward to visiting for many years to come.
Thank you for your kind review. Gillian and I look forward to hosting your family for many years to come!
