Villa Bonita. Southern Dunes 4 Golf Course. Disney Area!

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The villa is located at Southern Dunes a quiet, friendly and relaxing neighborhood. The community is set on an 18-hole, true gem, 4 star rated beautifully maintained golf course. Even if you do not play golf Southern Dunes is a great place to stay because of its natural beauty.

This well-appointed and decorated villa features fast wireless internet enabling you to surf the internet and access your email, a 32 inch LCD HD TV and a 27 inch TV, a DVD player, DVR recorder, expansive volume ceilings, tiled floor, an open fully fitted kitchen, a master bathroom with a garden tub and a large walk in shower, a further bathroom with a shower with a rainhead, a living room and a master bedroom with glass sliding doors leading towards a roofed in porch and a screened-in swimming pool with near the pool a furnished deck. There is a 24 hours guard gated entrance. Special features around the villa include the Southern Dunes 18-hole championship golf course and the private neighborhood park with preservation areas and a landscaped lake.

The beauty of Southern Dunes is that, while being able to relax in a 'country club' atmosphere in a beautiful villa, you are only twenty five minutes away from Disney's maingate and Central Florida's many attractions (avoiding the traffic jams on the other roads leading to Disney). You will have the best of both worlds. Inside Southern Dunes you will have local amenities that include tennis courts, an olympic size community pool, a play area, fishing lake and a clubhouse with restaurant and bar. And just minutes away you will find a supermarket and Wal-Mart at the gate, and Eagle Ridge Mall nearby on Highway 27.

Reaction from guests after their vacation:

'Everything at the villa was as expected. We were very comfortable and pleased with the arrangements. The villa made things much more comfortable. It took around 15 minutes to get to Disney and we had most of our meals at the villa which worked out very well. The children loved the pool. It was quiet and peaceful and close to needed stores. My children would walk to Wal Mart when they wanted to. We would be happy to recommend your villa to any and all our friends, in fact I have already started...'

'We were so happy to get to the villa and we were absolutely thrilled to see how beautiful it was. Very open, bright and spacious. It was very, very clean and neat when we walked in the front door. We were so comfortable and right away it felt like home. Your villa is the perfect place for a family to stay. My grandsons spent hours in the swimming pool, and loved swimming in the night. Our vacation was wonderful and we definitely plan to stay at your villa again on our next trip.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent two weeks at Villa Bonita. A wonderful stay. What a luxury to step out of bed and to be able to swim in your own swimming pool. We enjoyed the Disney parks and the shopping very much. It is easy to get from Villa Bonita to everything Florida offers. The contact with the owner went fine, but also with the man on the spot. We can certainly recommend this villa and hope that we will be able to return. Until then we can fortunately see the photo's on the site and look back with warm feelings.

Impressive Home

  • 4 of 5

This home was very impressive. Very quite neighborhood. The house was very clean. smoke and pet hair free which was a concern due to allergies. Everything you need to feel at home was readily available. The location is very central to major routes. Convenient to shopping areas. The owner provided a very detailed letter which was helpful in the operation of the home. The pool area was awesome, temperature just right, clean and inviting. The furniture needs to be updates and the bed linen and towels need to be replaced. For that reason I would rate it 4 out of 5. IK

Great location and experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice location. We were allowed to bring our pup as well which is always a plus. The pool was our favorite feature and it's close enough to Disney without being in the heart of it (which is what we prefer). Recommended.

Stay began not as has been expected

  • 3 of 5

The stay began not as expected.

We have found that only 6 beds are in the Villa .

The reservation was for 7 people.

The cleaner even didn't know about it.

After email correspondence they have sent somebody to buy the bed that arrived at 18:00.

Nobody even come to assemble the bed.

My husband dit it himself!

Owner's Response: On our listing our future guest will find a the section DINING seating for six and at the section BEDROOM sleeps 6. As an exception I agreed to the wish to have an extra bunk bed in one of the bedrooms. A the time of the booking there was a rental company were we could rent a bunk bed. When we wanted to rent the bed our property caretaker noticed that there was no rental company anymore. To make sure that we could keep our promise for an extra bunk bed we decided to buy one. The delivery/pick up date and the arrival date were the same date but because the arrival time was 17.00 PM there should not be any problem. The bunk bed is easy to assemble. The other issue was an early arrival. Our policy is clear. When guests arrive earlier at the resort, they are allowed to leave the luggage in the garage and return at 17.00 PM. We the owners communicate with our guests on paper and verbally. When guests arrive at 17.00 PM they will find as all our guests mention in their reviews a very clean villa. The job of the cleaners is to make sure that the villa is clean when our guests enter the villa on or after 17.00 PM. Of course the cleaners are polite when they meet guests who wants to leave the luggage in the garage but the cleaners are not aware of any detail of the contacts between we the owners and the guests. We regret that despite the exchange of more than fifty emails and phone calls we did not succeed in explaining what our guests may expect and whar our guests may not expect. To make sure our guests will have a good time at our Villa Bonita is our main concern and we make every effort possible to make that happen. We learn from the reviews that are less than five stars.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Bonita and have no complaints. Unlike other rentals we've stayed at, no cleaning or dry food items are provided, but we were made aware of that before we arrived. The bed was comfortable, the home was very clean, the pool was wonderful, and the price was so much cheaper than staying at a resort. We loved the peace and quiet! Our son enjoyed the pool toys provided. Overall, a great experience.
