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 13 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.

The house was perfect. It was roomy, comfortable and in a safe, quiet neighborhood. The owners left many items of convenience which was a nice touch, like towels and toys for the pool, dishwasher soap, kitchen utensils and cookware, laundry basket, grill, plenty of blankets and pillows. Just nice little touches that made you feel at home. I would HIGHLY recommend this house for a FL vacation. It was easy to get to Disney attractions, too, and there were TONS of shopping areas right next to the complex that made grocery shopping convenient.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad you had such an enjoyable stay and hope to see you back again another time.
1st class home from home. Lovely property in a lovely area.
Had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful property which is within a quiet area not to far from all the attractions. Very simple booking and easy payments. Owners are so so helpful and nothing is to much trouble. Will stay again in a few years. Thank you for letting us use your home.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We would love to welcome you back again in the future.
Beautiful home, convenient location, good value
This was my first time renting a home away from home and that’s exactly what I got a HOME away from home. We got what the pictures showed of this property, all the amenities were as promised. I had a last minute booking and they accommodated us like we had a booking weeks in advance. Evelyn, the owner was very attentive via email and the property management company was just a phone call away, which we didn’t need at all. Although my stay was not for a fun reason, I would definitely come back for a fun vacation next time!!!
Thank you for your lovely review. We hope to see you again in happier circumstances.
Brilliant - Great villa
We had an amazing stay at the villa. It really did feel like a home away from home. The property was really well located being close to the golf clubhouse (by the way, the golf course is amazing and well worth playing) plus with the added benefit of Walmart / plenty of other eateries in the immediate vicinity (Manny’s is definitly worth a visit). The villa has everything you need and has clearly had some nice renovations undertaken. The kids loved the pool which felt really private given the bushes separating the houses. Evelyn was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made things really easy. The best compliment I can give is that we are already looking at returning next year.
So glad you had such a great time and look forward to welcoming you again next summer.
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.

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'
