About Evelyn & Ian Fenne
We live in Dorset, on the south coast of England. Our son now lives in London after studying American Theatre at Rose Bruford but would prefer to spend all his time at Disney! We love it and hope you will too! We visit the property ourselves at least twice a year to make the most of the Florida sunshine.
Evelyn & Ian Fenne purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Evelyn & Ian Fenne chose Southern Dunes
We originally purchased our villa as we had spent nearly 10 years visiting Florida before eventually deciding we wanted somewhere of our own we could call our 'home away from home'. Over the past 12 years we have spent many happy holidays in Florida.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is situated in a perfect location - near enough to Disney and far enough away from the crowds. It is on a beautiful golf course with shops/restaurants and bars close by.

As before a gem - Our special home from home
We stayed in this villa two years ago, so this was our second visit & again we were not disappointed. It is a lovely place to base yourselves & explore the surrounding area with ease. The parks are easily accessible & the choice to a variety of beaches is an added bonus.
The owners, Ian & Evelyn, have added little extras to the villa, so it makes it agreat place to just laze, rewind & relax.
The villa is in a lovely secluded spot, although there are neighbouring villas, you have lots of privacy all around the pool.
If you're not a golfer, dont be put off, do visit the Clubhouse. Its not a late night venue, but the food & drink is very nice & reasonably priced, well worth a visit, expecially on quiz night - it is a really enjoyable evening & its just a walk away, so everyone can have a cheeky drink or two.
The villa is clean, tidy & very comfortable & does not disappoint.
If you book & have any questions, don't hesitate, contact Evelyn, she is a font of all knowledge & very helpful.
We will be returning for a third visit, this is what we call ' Our very own Gem, Our Florida, Home from Home'
A brilliant holiday with the perfect base
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you back again soon.
Our best vacation home yet
Home was found in such great shape, all necessities are there, plenty of clean towels, AMAZING location, i mean Legoland was just 20 minutes away, took kids to Legoland every day while there. Walmart supercenter is literally at the gate of the community, 10 minutes walk or 1 minute drive. So is Dollar Tree and Winn-Dixie. Across the street you'll find McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Taco Bell, along with a few other places. E erything is within reach. Pool is a good size and so is the back patio. So happy with owners and will certainly be ataying at this house again.

Spacious, convenient home
We had a great stay at this home and found it to be an incredible value. Everything was well stocked (lots of towels, kitchen tools, etc.). Some things were starting to look a bit run down (blinds were bent askew, the tops of dressers were worn) but everything was clean and certainly more than adequate. The owner, Evelyn, was really helpful and gave us thoughtful tips for our visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Evelyn was incredibly responsive to emails as well. We did have a little frustration with getting the management company to actually charge my credit card for the balance due - I had to email and call several times - but it all worked out. I would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.
Thanks for writing your review and so glad you had a good time. Please bear us in mind if you come back another time.
Lovely from the outside, Perfect on the inside.
When we arrived the Villa was set up perfectly with an informative folder if we had any concerns. For us, it was situated perfectly away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The complex is lovely and well maintained, upon our arrival there was no delay at the gate as they were aware of our arrival.
The pool area was a godsend after busy days visiting the parks, a lovely spacious area to relax , although we didnt request the pool to be heated it was warm enough after the hot days but im sure during the winter period it would be recommended.
The service we received prior to, during and after our return has been 5*, nothing has been to much trouble.
We would highly recommend this Villa if you have a large family
Thanks so much for taking the time to send a review. So glad you had such a wonderful time and look forward to seeing you back again another time.
