Friends from Arlesey, United Kingdom Oct 2022

The photos on the website need updating. In all honesty I could not recommend this villa

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. We have updated the photos on the website.


Family from Milton Keunrs, United Kingdom Oct 2016

A lovely villa which was as lovely as the discripton. Very clean and with most of the things you need. However more saucepans (only 1 and A tiny milk pan). Also there is a very large tree which Over shadowed the pool area and it is quite a long way from the major attractions. For us it was good as we didn't mind the travelling in for the parks etc.

Reply from Simon

Hello Irene - many thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will look to get some more saucepans next time we are at the villa. Thank you and best wishes


Couple from Neston, United Kingdom Feb 2014

We had a wonderful time at the villa which was just as described and extremely clean and well presented. The location was perfect for us - we were not doing any Disney stuff but had very easy access to lots of great golf courses. The location was also good for exploring other parts of Florida - we went down to Lake Okeechobee and also across to the Gulf Coast, with an overnight stay at each place. The location on Southern Dunes was very reassuring as it was such a secure site, and also so convenient for Walmart and for the wonderful Mannys Chop House! We loved sitting by the pool looking out across the lake. The booking process and subsequent queries to the owner were all dealt with promptly and efficiently. The management/maintenance team on site were also excellent. We hope to go back in the future.


Family from Lanark, United Kingdom Jul 2013

The villa met all our expectations and was excellent value for money. Everything was exactly as described on the website and we had a wonderful holiday.


From Wirral, United Kingdom Apr 2011

The property has a lovely restful view onto a lake. Good to get away from theme parks - Disney parks @ 20 minutes by car. Good selec tion of supermarkets within walking distance.The accommodation / layout is good and the management company dealt with a couple of problems we had efficiently.
Only grumbles were that beds were hard and squeaky. Also need pair of scissors and new can openers (easily fixed). Also, I would have liked a mop & bucket just to mop tiled floors, especially in kitchen and bathrooms

Reply from Simon

Thanks for the feedback. We will have the beds serviced or replaced and will buy a mop and bucket for future use!


From Ealing, United Kingdom Apr 2009

We were very happy with this villa. Very clean. Everything that you would need. Lots of fluffy towels. Beautiful view of the lake. Well placed - 20 mins to disney - straightforward route. Wal-mart 5 min walk. Secure gated community meant you always felt safe to go for little walks etc. Couple that manage property for the owner were very friendly, easy contactable and always willing to help.

Would thoroughly recommend. As a mum of 3 children under 6 - holidaying can be quite exhausting - but having such a well equipped villa took alot of the hard work out of the holiday for mummy so she could have a good swim everyday and time off!

Dave & Maureen 10 June 2011 to 17 June 2011 Hi Simon, We had a wonderful time in your villa, everything was as you described. It was very nice to sit out around the pool and take in the views. The golf course, club house and facilities on Southern Dunes are first class. We also like the various shops within walking distance. We will return and recommend to friends. Thanks again. Dave & Maureen

Ronald Klipple 01 January 2011 to 28 February 2011 Hi Simon, We arrived home to Pennsylvania yesterday afternoon. We had a wonderful two months stay in your villa in Florida, the weather was just great! Southern Dunes is a lovely development and the golf course is exceptional. We travelled up to Disney and/or the Orlando area almost every day! Thank you

Peter and Ann Green - 16 January 2009Hello Simon,Just to wanted to let you know that we have arrived and are settled in beautifully.We are delighted with the villa which is beyond our expectations what a lovely location. Derek and Rosie have called and been extremely helpful ensuring that we are comfortably settled.The weather has been sunny since we arrived, today we did have our first dip in the pool.

Jill Johnson - 26 July 2008I am happy to say that we had a wonderful holiday. Your villa was simply lovely, and we were all happy there. The villa was beatifully clean and well cared for, and everything we could have wanted was to hand. (I personaly was impressed with the "swan towels - a lovely touch).Rosie called around to the villa at our arrival and left her calling card as we were out so had we needed to get in touch.Even after two weeks in orlando and a week in Miami we still weren't ready to come home! hopefully we will be able to go back soon.Best wishes.Jill Johnson

Mandy Mitchell - 18 August 2008Hi Simon:We had a lovely time in Florida and the villa was very comfortable. It is in a very good location with an easy ride to all parks which was very nice.The view over the lake was wonderfull to wake up to every day and we miss is terribly.Thank you for everything.Mandy.

Eddie Conaghan31 May 2008Simon,Thought I'd dro p you a short note of recomendation for your home in Florida, we had a great time there and everything was in tip top condition. The pool area and the tranquility overlooking the lake was fabulous and a great place to unwind at the end of the day.The location is just great and we did not find the driving into Orlando any problems at all as the roads in the area are first class and we timed ourselves one afternoon on the way back from Universal and it was under 30 minutes of very easy driving. The local shops in the area are very good from Universal and it was under 30 minutes of very easy driving. The local shops in the area are very goos for eating and getting in supplies of breakfast stuff ( and beer of course) and we did most of our shopping at Win Dixie. Don't know if it would work but a WD loyalty card in the house might be good although one of the check out assistants used to give us the discounted prices using either the stores card or perhaps it was even her own number but that was typical of the people we encountered locally all were very helpful. Must also recommed the golf couse as it was a treat and not costly at all even including club hire.All in all would have no hesitation in recomending your home to friends or family for future visits.Regards,Eddie

Jane PriorSimon:Finally got around to sending you an email to say how much we enjoyed your house in Florida over the last two weeks. We all had a great time.We would certanly use it again in the next few years and recommend it to friends. The kids were never out the swimming pool when we were there in between visiting the parks and the washing machine was well used!!The setting of the house was great and Wal Marty was well visited. I hope you don't mind we left a swimming woogle in the garage as we didn't have any room for it in the suitcase.We did too much shopping. Also while we were there we bought at blockbuster 2 playstation games in their sale area and left those for you there also one is a Tiger Woods golf games and the other Shrek game. Neither of which would work on our machine at home.Thanks again for all your help in booking your villa and hopefully we will catch up with you soon.Regards,Jane15 March 2008

Susan and Scott Leach - Simon,I just want to write a short email to thank you for sharing your rental property with us.We had a wonderful time and the house is very nice, good location and in a excellent was so nice to have a place to relax and swim in the evenings instead of return to a hotel room.We hope your holiday went well.Kind regards,Scott and Susan Leach26 December 2006

Jan and Trudy van BlarcumHello Simon,Our holiday was fantastic, not the least because our stay at your beautiful house.The house itself is big, supplied with all the things you need to have a comfortable life.It was very clean, with nice a tastefull furniture and a lovely view on the lake special at sunset.It is also nice to see all the wildlife in the lake. Alligators sometimes swiming only a few meters away fish and big turtles were given us a real faraway feeling.Also the English couple taking care for the house were very friendly and helpful.Furthermore we have seen several parks,shopping malls,the lakes, and a part of the island near Tampa.We are planing to go back to Florida and planing to stay in your house.Once again you have a lovely place on a beautiful spot in Florida.Kind Regards,Jan and Trudy van Blarcum01 to 15 September 2007

Hi Simon,Just to let you know that we experienced a fabulous time at your villa on Southern Dunes.It was a lovely holiday property and well kept. It was also ideally located just far enough from Disney so that you could enjoyed quiet days and nights by the lovely pool.Again many thanks,Paul Parkinson17 August 2007UK

Dear Simon,We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was lovely especially with the view over the lake, so relaxing. What a beatiful view!It was also great to have Walmart in walking distance so that I didn't have to uproot the entire family every time I wanted to shop - I do not drive in the States! So to be able to to leave the family enjoing themselves in the pool whilst I shopped was a godsend. This was also our first villa holiday in a proper gated community so for safety aspects with the children it was greast knowing that not just any one could get in.Many thanks for the use of your lovely holiday home.Alison and Danny19 May 2007 to 02 June 2007UK

Mark Emly -04 August 2007Dear Simon,We arrived back from the States last week and all felt we wanted to thank you for letting us rent your lovely villa. We had an absolutely fabulos time. The villa was spotlessly clean and so well equiped. Our youngest son spent at least two hours in the pool each day !! (now with the addition of a blow up lilo and boat which we left for future guests).We really enjoyed the theme parks all of which we easy to get to from the villa and the varios malls and restaurants within the locality.A truly memorable holiday all round, undoubtedly enhanced by the quality of your villa. (and the positive exchange rate!!).Very many thanks again.Mark, Jeannie, Hannah, Jack and Joe.

Dear Simon,We had a lovely time at the villa everything was brilliant and the location couldn't have been better.Our Three year old keeps asking when can go back to our other house in Florida!!!!Many Thanks,Julia Todd20 April 2007 - UK

Simon:Just want to drop you a line to say that we had a fantastic holiday and thought that your villa was great.Very clean, good location,all the mod-cons and entertaiment you would ever need and a lovely pool.I am very glad that we booked it with you and hope that many more people get to enjoy it.Once again, thanks,David and Mia BonnenJuly 2007 UK

Hi Simon! We absolutely loved the villa!! We think everything was perfect. It was very clean and the neighborhood was lovely and quiet. If ever we get a chance to return ... you may hear from us again. :-> Thanks for your help, Tammy

Hi Simon,We have just arrived back from our vacation this morning, and this is thefirst opportunity I've had to contact you. We had a very relaxing stay inyour lovely villa - which was the perfect place to stay for a few days inOrlando at the start of our holiday, before setting off on our cruise,followed by a few days in Miami, then the Gulf coast and ending our vacationwith Easter in New York. So as you can imagine we've had a very busy time.Your house is in a perfect location overlooking the lake, and weparticularly enjoyed listening to the bull frogs and other wildlife aroundthe area. The house is extremely spacious, clean and comfortable and verywell equipped and we were sorry to be staying for such a short time. Myhusband and fourteen year old son enjoyed the pool table in the garage, andI found the location of the supermarket very convenient and felt very safewalking to the supermarket to pick up our groceries. We all enjoyed theswimming pool, and felt the villa was very spacious. We have stayed atSouthern Dunes before, and were not in any way disappointed, and would bevery happy to rent your villa again in the future. The managers were kindenough to leave a light on as they knew our arrival would be very late.Thank you for fitting us in at such short notice. I shall be happy to submit a review on the villarenters website. If youneed any further feedback please feel free to contact me.RegardsMaggie
