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.
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.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST BAR/UTILITY ROOM
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 (may vary) 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 www.southerndunes.com.
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 www.mannyschophouse.com. 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.

The property was very easy to find (even in the dark, which was when we arrived) The directions were great, and having the lights on was very welcoming! The villa was fabulous! It was as described, and very spacious. The two of us were almost lost in the building! Access to stores that were on either side of the entrance to the grounds was easy and included Walmart, Dollar Tree, Winn-Dixie and several restaurants. No long trips to do shopping! All the appliances worked and the pans and dishes were very clean (we have stayed at places other than this where a lot of cleaning had to be done before anything was usable. Not the case here!) Everything was ready for our arrival and we enjoyed out stay very much! The location was central to all that we wanted to do (we went to both coasts several times) and the location made that extremely easy. Hoping we will be able to rent this wonderful villa again soon!
This has to be the best place we have stayed at over the years we have been going to Florida . Enough said !
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.
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
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa it was clean,the villa layout was good plenty of space for families,pool was good as was the space around the pool.The location is good plenty of shopping near by also restaurants very happy with our stay at the villa
