Crooked Management Company
We had a great stay while attending the Homeschool World Series Baseball Tournament in Auburndale. The home was in good condition and most everything was in working order. We requested and paid for pool heating. By the third night, the pool was not any warmer so I informed the management company that is wasn't working. They turned it on the next day. After my stay I asked the owner for 3 days worth of heating cost to be refunded. He took over a week to reply. Then his management company accused us of staining his mattresses and pillows and tearing his dinning room chairs. The chairs had torn plastic covers on them when we arrived. We brought our own pillows and placed his on the floor. The pictures that were sent over for documentation showed stains that were clearly years old. His management company was mad that they got caught not doing their job by not turning on the pool heat and are trying to blame us for things that were damaged by tenants from months gone by.
Don't rent from these crooks. They charged me for damages that we never caused. Take video as soon as you walk into your unit. Take the sheets off the beds and take photos. Or you too will get charged.
The pool light was not working and the sliding door alarm to the pool area didn't work either. Both are rental code violations in Florida.
We loved the house we stayed in. It was very clean, and in a great location with it’s own pool. We are in our fifties, and will retire in another 10 year’s. We will be looking for a house like this if we choose Florida.
The villa was great ,There was everything there that you needed .very quiet and the shops where very close by.
We loved it.
We have stayed on southern dunes in various villas over the years. When booking this villa I didn't look at other reviews and I'm so glad I didn't. Wow we loved our stay the villa was huge, and well equipped for our needs. The master suite didn't disappoint and the games room and pool were fab. Yes there are a few marks on the carpet but the whole place was clean and tidy. We were sad to leave and those leaving bad reviews seem to have unrealistic views. We .ca t wait to book again. This by far has been our favourite villa. At one point we had friends from Clearwater stay over and no one got in each other's way.
Large Home In Gated Community close to many restaurants
We recently returned from a three month stay at this house and were pleased with most of the amenities. The only problem we had was with the stove which had two elements not working but the owner replaced it with a new stove. The house has had some updating done but still needs some more. The carpet in bedroom needs to be replaced and the curtains around the sliding door need to be replaced. All in all, we were quite comfortable in the house and have rebooked for three months next winter. The owner responded to any concerns we had and was helpful when needed. One drawback to this home would be the proximity of the house directly behind but it was not an issue for us because it was unoccupied most of our stay.
Our house is approx. 45 minutes drive from Orlando International Airport. Other airports that may be considered are Tampa and Sanford (both around 1 hrs drive).
Our house is an easy 20 mins drive to the Disney Parks, 25 mins drive to Universal Studios, Sea World etc. Just 15 minutes to the new Legoland theme park.
There is a huge Walmart Superstore open 24/7 within walking distance just outside the southern Dunes resort are; gas stations, banks, pharmacies and restaurants, with many more of the above within easy driving distance. One of the best nearby restaurants is 'Manneys' only a few minuets drive from the resort
