Contact Owner

4-bedroom 2 ensuite, 3rd shared bath. Disney-themed with air con, WIFI, charcoal BBQ, games room. Close to theme parks, Walmart at community entrance, short walk to golf club


Almost 2000 square feet of Disney-themed vacation home with 4 bedrooms (2 ensuite & 1 shared bathroom) can be found in a quiet cul-de-sac location and will comfortably sleep up to eight so is perfect for multi-generational families or maybe two families sharing and all this can be yours for a fraction of the cost of multiple hotel rooms.

The large Castle Room has seating for everyone on large leather sofas (one can converts to a double sofa bed). There is a 65" smart ROKU digital cable TV with soundbar, alongside a DVD player. A ceiling fan is overhead which can assist the air conditioning to reduce temperatures in warm weather. The dining area has a large, extendable wooden table, providing seating for the entire party all together!

The second lounge is a little less formal, with a 48" ROKU TV, DVD player, extensive DVDs collection for all members of the family. The bookshelves offer a range of novels for all ages and tastes, travel guides. In the table drawer you'll find a number of activity and colouring books with crayons. This room overlooks the pool deck which can be accessed via an alarmed (for child-safety) sliding door. Overhead there is a ceiling fan.

Our west-facing private pool is 26 feet x 12 feet in size. The pool is screened to keep out the bugs and block some UV light. The large pool deck has a covered lanai for shade, with two tables with ten chairs so everyone can sit and eat outside if they wish. We also have four loungers. The pool can be heated for an additional fee. The pool deck and pool are lit for an evening swim after a hard day at the parks. A security fence is supplied to protect young children from accessing the pool without supervision and all door and windows that access the pool from the villa are alarmed. The pool area is surrounded on all three sides by a privacy hedge. We are now using a liquid pool cover so there's no longer a need to fit the pool blanket.

We also supply a charcoal grill/barbeque for your use, free of charge, during your stay (guests need to supply their own fuel). All we ask is you clean it before you leave or there is a charge.

Our fully equipped kitchen has all the stainless steel appliances you need to feel at home. We have a large electric stove with ceramic hob, a microwave, dishwasher, side-by-side American-style fridge-freezer with ice and iced water dispenser, regular coffee maker, Aeropress coffee maker, manual and electric burr grinders, 4-slice toaster, Mickey Mouse pancake/waffle iron, electric kettle, electric can-opener and blender. We supply a range of good quality multiclad aluminum pans to feed a family. We also supply enough crockery, cutlery and glassware for all members of the party. For eating and drinking out on the pool deck, we supply melamine plates, dishes, cups, as required by Florida law. There is a further breakfast area alongside the kitchen which will seat 6 to 8 comfortably. A radio can be found here, with facility to charge your iPhone gizmos and this can be used to play your own music too. There's an international multi-outlet/socket for charging all those devices including USB chargers.

In the garage, we have our Disney Cars games room. There is an 8-foot slate pool table, with balls for billiards/pool and snooker, pool cues of 3 lengths. The ESPN 5.5 foot air hockey table is glow in the dark, although we're not sure we'd recommend it! The foosball/table football table has 'real' players rather than the robots you seem to get more and more these days. We have a dartboard with soft-tip darts, for safety. For toddlers there's a Toy Story rocking horse and a road layout driving mat with cars.

If outdoor play is more your thing, we have tennis rackets and balls and a fishing rod. When it's not your turn, we have a table and chairs and have now added a ROKU TV to keep up on your sports (or soaps). For our younger guests, we've provided a toy box, crammed full of cars, dolls and stuffed toys. There's even a Disney Cars table and chairs (which can be taken out to the pool deck if you wish). In the closet you'll find more jigsaws and board games than you'll have time to play. Our vast selection of dress-up clothes for boys and girls now comprises more than 50 outfits, including several Disney ones.

We have our laundry facility in the garage/games room, with US-style top-loading washer/washing machine and tumble dryer. A washing basket, clothes airer, iron and ironing board are also available for your use.

Our driveway is wide enough for two cars to be parked off the road.

We also provide a mailbox, which may be of use to longer stay guests and snowbirds.


The first of two master suites, the Mickey Master, has a king-size bed with pillow-top mattress, 48" ROKU television and DVD player, cordless telephone, a table and two chairs, one-cup Mickey Mouse coffee machine, alarm clock radio with USB charger, additional power outlets/sockets and plenty of storage in bedside tables and a large chest of drawers. This bedroom also has a ceiling fan. The bedroom has an alarmed sliding door which allows access to the pool deck. Accessed from the bedroom is the large ensuite bathroom with shower, two-person bath, vanity sink with mirror over, separate WC and large walk-in closet.

The second master suite is the Donald Master. This has a queen-size bed with pillow-top mattress, 32” cable television smart ROKU TV and dvd player, chests of drawers, double closet, dressing table and chair, Mickey Mouse one-cup coffee machine, alarm clock and cordless telephone. The lamps on the bedside table each have a USB port and there are additional ones on the wall. Accessed from the bedroom is a full bath with shower over, mirrored vanity sink and WC.

Our third and fourth bedrooms have two twin beds each and are decorated with a Disney-theme. The Simba Room overlooks the swimming pool and has a 19” ROKU television, large closet, chest of drawers and alarm clock. The Nemo room looks out to the side of the villa and has a 19” ROKU television, large closet and chest of drawers. Both rooms now have additional power outlets/sockets with USB for more device charging. If required, either or both of the twin rooms can be converted to king-size beds on request. The twin rooms share the Little Mermaid-themed family bathroom, which has full bath with shower over, mirrored vanity sink and WC. There is a closet in this bathroom which contains extra towels and pool towels.

There is also a Dollar Tree (everything’s a dollar), Winn-Dixie, Taco Bell, a Chinese restaurant and a bank.

There is also another gas station, a western outfitters and also a Visitor Center with free guidebooks and discount vouchers. The Ovation Bistro just before you get to Posner Park (on the right, going North) is a place not to be missed.

A further 10 minutes north-east on the I-4 will take you to the 192 (W Irlo Johnson Highway) and International Drive. Here you’ll find dozens of restaurants and malls to suit all tastes and pockets.

The Disney, Universal and SeaWorld parks can all be reached via easy-to-drive and well-signposted multi-lane highways. South of the villa you will find Legoland Florida, with many rides, gardens, water-ski show and displays of Lego cities. A variety of smaller attractions (Gatorland, Old Town Kissimmee, air boat rides, museums, parks, lakes) are also available locally.

If you’re a golfer and Southern Dunes Golf Course is not enough for you, Orlando hosts over a hundred courses in the surrounding area within an easy drive.

Family from Kilbirnie, United Kingdom Jul 2014

This villa far exceeded our expectations. Absolutely everything you could ever need to make your stay perfect has been thought of. The pool is fabulous and the kids just loved the games room. All of the beds are amazingly comfortable. Communication with the owner via email was great and we had a couple of minor things which we contacted the management company about and Susan was a fabulous help with everything being dealt with swiftly.
If you have already booked this villa you will not be disappointed, and if your thinking of booking this villa I would highly recommend it.
We had an amazing 3 week holiday and if we do get back out to Florida we would definitely stay at this villa again.


Family from Musquodoboit Harbour, Canada Feb 2014

Beautiful home, no surprises when we arrived, the unit was as advertised & more! Lots of toys for the kids & plenty of room for the adults.
Would have liked to have better control over A/C as the lowest setting was 74 degrees however I understand there must be a large utiltiy cost associated.

Thank you for your remarks about our vacation home, we are so glad you enjoyed all the facilities our house has to offer. We are currently trialling the air conditioning restriction, between 74 and 78F, as we were advised that allowing it to drop below that would cause the system to freeze, so that it stops working altogether. We recommend using the ceiling fans to help reduce the temperature, but accept that some guests would prefer the temperature cooler than others. We will continue to monitor this with our upcoming guests over the coming months, and thank you for your feedback. Once again, we thank you for your feedback. We are glad you had a great time and hope we will see you back at Villa Southern Dunes in the future.

I have rent houses in Southern Dunes since 1993 and it is the first time we have rent a house where the pool side is in the shadow until the afternoon. It would have been nice to know that before we booked the house. We have 2 children who like the pool from the early morning. All other things in this house is great - clean and functionally.

Your house was perfect for our last stay. I really appreciate how accommodating you and your house keepers were. We had a great week and look forward to coming back again. If you have a family headed to Disney, LegoLand, etc... This house is perfect. If you golf, Southern Dunes is a very nice golf course with great staff. See you next time

The Robertsons, London Jan 2020

We had a wonderful time in this amazing villa. We really enjoyed the pool and the huge bath. We hope to come back soon.

"When we arrived at the villa it was a wow factor. Absolutely beautiful. Driving into Southern Dunes was great. The villa has everything you could ask for and more. Loved the space, decor and especially the pool. This villa is positioned so you have the sun until it sets at night which is marvellous. The games room is great for the men in the family. Cable telly in every room. All in all it is excellent value for money and you can even go and play tennis within the community. Certainly would return again. Thanks Villa Southern Dunes! xxx" Julie, Kilwinning, Scotland

"We enjoyed our time so much at your villa! The pool was alittle cool when we arrived on the 3rd but we placed a call to [the management company] and they checked it out - however after a couple of days it really got very hot, so we had to call them again to have the temp turned down - after that it was perfect and we enjoyed it every day!!.... You have done very nice updat es to the villa - the new leather furniture is beautiful and comfortable - the dining room set is very nice too! as are the dishes and the nice addition of TV's (with cable) in the living room and bedrooms! A very comfortable home!!.... Thanks so much again."Lyle and Yvonne, North Dakota

"We LOVED it! First, hubby insists I comment on the golf course! He loved it! He has played several in the Orlando area over the years and this is his absolute favorite. He even called a friend to gush about it (and hubby doesn't generally gush... ever). I loved the "library"! Great selec tion of books - couldn't believe how many of my Fav authors - I highly recommend reading while in lines at the parks - bring a Ziplock to toss the books in when you hit the rides. Kid games were awesome too. Loved that Walmart was around the corner and trips into Orlando were faster and easier than we expected. We didn't use the pool, but were impressed with how clean it was out there. Furnishings reminded me of Ikea - so nice and practical and NICE. Wish we had those TVs at home - felt spoiled. Loved it! We will be back!"Tom and Kelley, Memphis, TN

"Hi,we had a fantastic holiday! The villa was lovely,everything was as we expected,just like all photos on web site which was good.The rooms are all genorous and well equipped,air con was appreciated as it was very close(with thunderstorms throughout our stay).All loved the pool-especially children, though we were out and about a little more than planned due to poor weather conditions(not pool/sunbathing weather!)so did not spend as much time at the villa as we may have liked.(But that`s not your fault!) The villa was easy to find,always good easy jouneys to and from Disney parks etc.We never ventured far around the local area which seems a shame now we are back home, but we definatley got the most out of Disney,Universal and Seaworld, which is what we were visiting the area for! We would recommend your villa to family or friends as we really enjoyed staying there,having no complaints at all.We hope you have a good holiday there soon,and thank you for letting your lovely villa for us to enjoy!"Karen, Glyn and family, Leicestershire, UK

Private Owner From Oldbury, United Kingdom Member since Jul 2010

We became villa owners in 2008 having taken holidays in Orlando. We use our villa ourselves several times a year, mostly to ensure the villa is maintained to a high standard, but also to get some sun and fun. We endeavour to deliver to our customers a real home away from home and we are always adding little touches towards that goal.
