About the Property

In a secure, quiet and friendly gated community in Haines City, close to Disney.

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 Ridgewood for the wildlife, Providence and Champions Gate for challenge, the Disney courses and of course Southern Dunes is the most beautiful course you can imagine.

Immaculately clean, well-maintained and recently updated by new owners, the home is comfortable and fully-furnished. There are 3 bedrooms with King, Queen, and Twin beds. The master bedroom has a brand-new Simmons Beautyrest firm mattress, an ensuite 3-piece bathroom, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom also has a new Beautyrest pillowtop mattress, dresser, and a large closet. The third bedroom has twin beds and a large closet. There are TV’s in every room and air conditioning throughout.

The living area has a loveseat, a hideaway bed-sofa, and entertainment centre fully supplied with books, videos, games and magazines. The house comes with high-speed internet, free Wi-Fi and free long distance calling throughout the US and to Canada.

The kitchen is fully equipped and several grocery stores are 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!), and an Irish Pub.

The home has a screened-in patio and private swimming pool with solar blanket and optional child barrier. Pool heat, if necessary, is available at extra cost. There is a washer/dryer in the garage, an adult bicycle, 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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: 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.

Why Southern Dunes (Haines City, FL, USA):
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 love owning a get-away place in Florida and we know you would enjoy staying in Twin Palms as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
