About the property

Twin Palms Villa

2964 Kokomo Loop

Haines City, Florida

Twin Palms – our sweet 3-bedroom 2-bathroom Florida vacation home, located in the top-rated Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club. Twin Palms backs onto the golf course - enjoy the view from the pool and patio of the 2nd hole, and walk to the Southern Dunes clubhouse for happy hour and dinner specials daily! We have been pleased to host many visitors from Canada and the UK.

This home is in a secure, friendly, gated community in Haines City, a suburb of Orlando, just 20 miles southwest of Disney on US Hwy 27. Haines City is mid-way between coasts – it’s an easy 75 minute drive on the Beachline Expressway to Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic Ocean, and similar distance to Tampa-area beaches on the Gulf side. Many of Florida’s top attractions such as Disney, Universal Studios, Lego land, and Sea World are a short drive away on Hwy 27 and I-4, as are a large number of excellent shopping areas including Orlando Premium Outlets Mall. And if you love to golf, you will find a wide range of courses within a 15 minute drive to choose from – we love Providence for layout and value, Highlands Reserve for views, Champions Gate and Celebration for challenge, and of course Southern Dunes is the most beautiful course you can imagine.

Immaculately clean, well-maintained and continuously updated by loving owners, the home is comfortable and fully-furnished. There are 3 bedrooms with King, Queen, and Twin beds. The master bedroom has a Simmons Beautyrest firm mattress, an ensuite 3-piece bathroom, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a Beautyrest pillowtop mattress, dresser, and a large closet. The third bedroom has twin beds and a large closet. There are flat-screen smart TV’s in every room so that guests can access Netflix, Showtime, HBO, Hulu, etc., if they have their own accounts.

The house is fully air conditioned.

The living area has a new sofa and love seat, and a 52" Sony flat-screen TV. The house comes with reliable high-speed internet, free Wi-Fi and free long distance calling throughout the US and Canada.

The kitchen is fully equipped and we have recently installed all new stainless steel appliances. The dishwasher is super quiet. There are several grocery stores within walking distance, such as Wal-Mart and WinnDixie; there are also restaurants close by, including Denny’s, Dairy Queen, Manny’s (lots of fun and great food - you’ll love it!), Sonny’s BBQ (great salad bar!), Thai restaurant, and the best pizza ever at family-run Dora's (bring your own wine!). For extra fun, travel a bit further to the eclectic Cherry Pocket for good seafood and fun atmosphere.

The home has a screened-in patio and private swimming pool with optional child barrier. Pool heat, if necessary, is available at extra cost. There is a new digital front-loader Samsung washer and new Whirlpool dryer, along with a large drying rack in the garage, an adult bicycle, a set of new golf clubs (adult use only please) and as well a crib, playpen, stroller and highchair stored in the garage for your convenience if visiting with children.

There is room for one car in the garage and a car in the driveway. The patio is equipped with tables, chairs, loungers, a large umbrella for shade, and new chair cushions. Extra folding chairs are in the garage, along with plenty of pool toys.

About Pat Boeckner

We live in the Don Mills area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We are semi-retired, play golf whenever possible, and also enjoy skiing, travelling and paddling with our dragon-boat team.

Pat Boeckner purchased this house in 2013

Why Pat Boeckner chose Southern Dunes

We love to visit Twin Palms Villa for the quiet mornings, views of the golf course from sunrise to sunset, floating in our private pool, and of course, golfing on Southern Dunes and other nearby courses. We looked for a house to buy in the Southern Dunes community and found that this one was perfect - it had been very well maintained and was immaculate. We upgraded the beds and mattresses, added some landscaping, and did some painting and redecorating. We recently added all new stainless kitchen appliances (photos to be added) and a new Samsung digital front loading washing machine. We love owning a get-away place in Florida and we know you would enjoy staying in Twin Palms as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Twin Palms has one of the best golf course views you would ever find in Florida! This house is perfect for one or two couples, a golf foursome, or a family of 4 to 6. We provide everything needed for a baby, including crib, playpen, highchair, stroller, and car seat. There is even a pool barrier that can be put in place to keep youngsters safe around the patio and pool. There is an adult bicycle for cruising the neighbourhood, and a set of new Dunlop golf clubs for the occasional golfer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The villa is in an ideal location for shops, parks, restaurants. Perfect size for our family of 4. Kids absolutely loved the pool. Beautiful setting to wake up to onto the golf course. Thank you for letting us share your villa, as it has helped make our 2015 vacation and first timers in Florida and first time in a villa a very special holiday.

Thank you once again.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! It was clean, very well taken care of, it had everything you would need to be comfortable for your stay. The location was great also! It was about 20 minutes from the Disney parks, and a little over an hour to both the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico! There is a Walmart and Winn Dixie right outside the gate so you didn't have to travel far to get anything for your stay!

Also, Pat was wonderful to work with. She took the time to make sure we would have everything we needed, even checked up during the week to make sure everything was still going good.

We will definitely look into staying at this house again when we come back to the area!

Fantastic villa in gated community

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa set in the private gated golf resort. The villa was clean and modern. The owners Pat and Ian were professional and helpful. The booking procedure was straight forward and simple. When we arrived they contacted us to check everything was OK. We would recommend this villa its ideally situated for easy access to the parks and the beaches.

Owner's Response: Thank you to the Taylor's for this kind review. We're so glad you had an enjoyable vacation at our home. I agree the location is superb - close to parks and attractions while in the midst of orange orchards and away from the bustle of Orlando. We hope you'll come again next year - or sooner!!
