Contact Owner

Superior 4 bedroom family owned villa with *LARGE PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL*, *FREE WIRELESS INTERNET*, *50 INCH HD TV & FULL CABLE TV*. Set in the prestigious Southern Dunes Golf & Country Cub. PERFECT !


After viewing many villas in various communities within the Disney area we eventually found what we were looking for in the prestigious Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club. Situated conveniently on the highway 27, Southern Dunes, which is a manned gated community, is in a perfect position for accessing the many attractions and shopping in the Disney/Orlando area. We can now also boast being very close to the new Legoland which incorporates Cypress Gardens and a water park. We are also in a great position for joining the I4 therefore getting to the Disney attractions is very easy. Busch Gardens in Tampa and both the Gulf and Atlantic coast beaches are also very accessable.

Our villa is our pride and joy and we very much want to share it with you. We want you to enjoy staying in it so much that you will want to return. With it's 50 inch HD television and HD cable tv, free high speed wireless internet, full air conditioning throughout, telephone with free calls within the USA and Canada, 4 bedrooms, 2 sitting areas, 2 dining areas, the all important utility room, games room, 2 bathrooms, and most importantly the large heated swimming pool you will find this has it all. It is furnished to a very high standard with many extras from paintings to hairdryers. It is extremely child friendly. Not only do we have a travel cot and highchair at no extra cost, we also have a security fence at the pool which can be easily taken down if not required. We regularly buy new bedding, towels and those little extra things to let our guests know that we care. We have a fantastic management company who will ensure that your stay is hassle free. They help us to ensure that everything in our villa is clean and in perfect condition and are always on hand to deal with any problems should they arise.

Whether you are looking for that family villa with a special touch, the perfect tranquil villa for a romantic getaway or that all important golfing holiday then our villa is for you.


As you walk through the front door you will enter the 1st seating area which has an open plan formal dining area. The 2nd seating area is at the rear of the house and has beautiful large patio doors leading onto the pool. Here you will find our fantastic 50 inch television with HD cable tv and DVD player. Both areas have magnificent vaulted ceilings.


The villa has 4 bedrooms. 1 master bedroom with a beautiful super king size bedroom suite with patio doors leading to the pool and an en suite bathroom/shower room, a second queen bedroom and 2 twin rooms. The 2nd Double room and the 2 twins share a bathroom/shower room/toilet. Some may argue that a 3rd bathroom would be desirable but we find what we have is more than adequate with never a complaint from our guests. As a matter of fact we chose this set up as it means more space in other parts of the villa. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and cable televisions.


The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay. All utensils, crockery, etc., are in perfect/new condition. There is a large American fridge/freezer. The kitchen is also equipped with a large oven and microwave.

Next to the kitchen is a 2nd dining area and breakfast bar.

We also have that all important utility room leading from the kitchen which has a large washing machine and tumble dryer.


The double garage houses a pool table with a table tennis top, a fantastic cross trainer, a dart board, chairs, a selection of books and 2 bikes for you to use at your leisure. When the sun moves away from the pool area in the late afternoon/evening the garage doors can be opened. Here you can bask in the sun using the chairs we have in the garage.


The villa has high speed wireless internet which can be accessed by multiple users.


In our opinion the most special part of our villa is the large pool. With clear blue water and a lovely outlook you will want to spend hours here. We have plenty of top quality comfortable sunbeds for you to relax on and a dining table and chairs. If you want to sit in the shade there is a shaded area. Pool heat is available during the cooler months.


Southern Dunes is an exclusive community of top quality homes set amidst a fantastic 18 hole golf course designed by Steve Myers and ranked in Florida's top 10. You can pay and play, book on line or purchase a monthly membership. There's something for everyone at Southern Dunes - a community pool, a gym, tennis courts, kids swing park, beautiful walks, fishing in Lake Joe (you will need your own line & tackle and be mindful of the resident gators !), banks, gas stations and much more. Tavern on the Dunes is located in the 12,000 square foot clubhouse and is the perfect place to have breakfast & lunch or to simply unwind after an enjoyable round of golf. Happy hour is from 4.00pm to 7.00pm 7 days a week in the newly renovated bar that features 7 TV's and with the help of Direct TV they are able to offer a variety of your favourite sporting events i.e., Golf, NFL Ticket, College Football, NHL, MLB and much much more !! For up to date information visit


Within walking distance of the villa you will find a 24 hour Walmart (you may want to take the car if it's a larger shopping list), a Winn Dixie, a Chinese take away and various restaurants such as the usual McDonalds, Checkers, etc., Our biggest claim to fame is Manny's Chop House where you will have not just a meal but a dining experience. Manny's has a phone ahead booking service and is so different from the usual American diners. Take a look at As you exit Southern Dunes and drive along the Highway 27 you will find many restaurants such as Appleby's, Cracker Barrel, Grand China Buffet, Perkins, Denny's, Bob Evans, etc.,
Not far from our villa, on the I4 going East, you will find the Disney attractions and on the I4 going WEST you will find various places of interest such as The Museum of Flight, The Water Skiing Experience, Dinosaur Land aswell as Legoland as previously mentioned. If it's hiring a fishing boat that takes your fancy or trying out the experience of firing a gun at a gun range then look no further.
We have a collection of leaflets in the villa which you may find interesting. If any of our guests experience anything new they tend to leave some information for future guests.

Reply from Carolyn

Thank you so much for your review. It means the World to me to know that you enjoyed staying so much. Please come again soon !!!


Couple from Oxford, United Kingdom Aug 2019

A very comfortable fortnight. Facilities good and many recently new and seem good quality. A small concern that we had some issue with insects indoors at one point. Would still recommend.


Family from Marlborough, United Kingdom Dec 2018

Just finished a 10 day break. House was perfect for our family of 4. Great instructions for entry and very good communication with the owner . Internet/phone wasn’t working initially but called the management company and sorted immediately. Lovely location and supermarkets very close by along with restaurants. Would definitely recommend this house and area. It is between Tampa and Orlando and close to Disney and Seaworld and a bit further from Universal. Only thing I would say is the especially going to Orlando area the traffic was much worse than I thought it would be pretty much every journey. So what I thought would be a 40 minute journey typically was almost always an hour and 15 mins. Apart from that a wonderful family holiday


Family from Liverpool, United Kingdom Nov 2018

Couple from London, United Kingdom Jul 2018

We stay in southern dunes every year because you can’t beat the location and security this resort offers its fantastic , 24 hour security beautiful golf course and backs onto Walmart with plenty of amenities within walking distance. The villa itself was superb very clean everything you need huge size and a games room and bikes to rent which we loved. Overall a fab property we would certainly stay again :)

What a wonderful holiday. This villa is the best we have ever stayed in. Southern Dunes is the perfect location. The villa had everything we needed and more. Everything was immaculate. We cannot praise this villa enough. We feel like the owners really understand what people are looking for when they have their special Florida holiday. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We are going to miss that lovely sunny pool !! Wish we could take it home. Until the next time. (The Willis family - June,2014)

Many thanks to Carolyn, Fraser & family for letting us stay in your villa. As I remembered it, lovely, spacious and for us the 'home from home' feel. We've all had a wonderful holiday here. (Pauline, Steve, Sue & Alex from Leeds - 17th to 31st May, 2014)

Dear Carolyn, Fraser and kids, For the second time we stayed in your beautiful villa. We have been married for 30 years so we celebrated here. We have been last December 2013 also here on Southern Dunes, this villa was rented for another family, so we stayed somewhere else but it was not as nice like this villa. We had a great time here, going home with lots of memories. We will come again. (John & Immy from The Netherlands)

Thank you for making our holidays special with your wonderful villa. We all loved it here and we can't wait to come again. Thank you very much !! From Family Zivanovic - 16th July, 2013)

Hi Carolyn, We have a fine holiday in your villa it was wonderful. The villa was very clean and comfortable. We return as soon as possible. I want to go to Florida next year from 29 April till 13 May. But I see that the villa is hired till 30 April. Maybe I come back another time to your villa Kindly regards, John and Immy Nota from the Netherlands Staying in your beautiful villa from 29 August till 9 September (John & Immy Nota - 9th September 2013)

2 weeks of Florida weather :- August 2013 - some nice sunshine and American sized rain storms !! 3rd visit to Southern Dunes and everything was great. Lovely villa & pool and will recommend. Disney crowded as usual but the kids loved it. Even got a game in at Tropicana Stadium when the Yankees were in town. Superb !! Thank you for a lovely time." (The Gemmills - 28th August 2013)

We have had a brilliant time here in Florida. The villa is the nicest holiday villa Ive ever stayed in, although so far we have only spent one day resting at the villa, we have tried to pack so much in. Wet N Wild, Universal parks, Disney parks, Sea World, Discovery Cove, the Designer Outlets, Gator land. The restaurants are great too. TGI Fridays, Dennys, The Red Lobster, Perkins, the Chinese opposite Southern Dunes is very nice and massive portions. The best day so far has deffo gotta be Discovery Cove !!! My son has turned us into table tennis pros every evening and my husband has to go on a serious diet when we get home. Thank you for letting out your villa. Weve had a fantastic time. The "Underhills"

Thank you for providing such an amazing villa for us to celebrate my 36th birthday and my mums 60th. We have had such a great time made even better having such a great place to come home to after our daily adventures ! Steve Cormack & Anna Bryant

Have visited Florida & Orlando many times but this has to be one of the nicest villas! (Will recommend! x) Pool is a lovely size, Walmart extremely handy, my family were safe to walk to Subway & Walmart. Decor is very tasteful ! Previously it was stated this is further away but we found the drive excellent, having previously stayed in Kissimmee the 192 is always too busy and congested so we found the journey smooth and quick. Trevor and Tracey very helpful and keep the villa as one of their own. Love to come back ! xxx Jane, Earle, Cory & Ronan Davidson, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Thank you for making our holidays special with your wonderful villa. We all loved it here and we cant wait to come again. Thank you very much! From family Zivanovic

Well what a fantastic fortnight in a lovely place. Family from Scotland and Australia met up and stayed together in this home from home villa. We celebrated two birthdays and had a brilliant holiday. Thank you Carolyn, Fraser, Kieron, Murray and Krista for sharing your gorgeous home with us. We cant wait to come back. Pamela, Stuart, Matthew and Catherine Cormack.

“We have had a fantastic time in Florida and have loved staying at your gorgeous villa. We were knocked out by how lovely it was when we arrived after our long journey from the UK. We just wish we were here for longer! The Polk County Tourist Information center were very helpful, check them out as you join Interstate 4. The highlight of our stay has to be an amazing day at Discovery Cove. Expensive but WOW!!! Dolphin heaven.” The Storer & Prior September 1st 2011. “The flight was 5 hours late and we arrived from Sanford at midnight. What a lovely surprise to enter this spectacular villa. Even our eldest son was impressed (although it took him a few days to admit it as he is 17). A really warm and welcoming feeling about 2645. The kids came back from Animal Kingdom straight in the pool, what a bonus from our last holiday. Bahama Bay was brilliant but this was an extra level. The villa although further south than our last one is pretty convenient for I4 and the facilities for purchasing supplies is brilliant. A superb place to stay with fantastic facilities, would highly recommend this villa to all at home back in Scotland. Thanks for all the additional tvs, pool tables etc etc.” The Nolan Family July 2011. “We had an amazing holiday and the holiday has added to this. Our kids were even happy to stay away from Disney just to mess about by the pool. Everyone on Southern Dunes was really friendly and wed love to return as soon as we have saved up again!” BRADLEY FAMILY JUNE 2011. “We had a fabulous time we couldnt have picked a better place to stay. We did not know where we were staying as it was allocated on arrival. Exactly 1 person had brought their golf clubs so this was absolutely perfect. The villa and pool are brilliant and having shops and supermarkets nearby is ideal. The villa has been great, made the kids day to have table tennis and pool. The villa itself is lovely and spacious and the pool is large and welcoming. Thank you for allowing us to stay.” RICHARDSON & COATES FAMILY, CO DURHAM June 2011. “Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in FL last week. The villa worked out wonderfully. It was extremely clean and very comfortable. It was just far enough away from everything to be out of all the congested traffic but close enough to be convenient to everything. The booking process and coordination was exceptional and made the entire transaction very smooth. All the information in the villa was very helpful with planning our outings. Thanks again for your help and we look forward to returning to FL and booking through ” Steve Byars Dec 2010.
