About Evelyn & Ian Fenne

We live in Dorset, on the south coast of England. Our son now lives in London after studying American Theatre at Rose Bruford but would prefer to spend all his time at Disney! We love it and hope you will too! We visit the property ourselves at least twice a year to make the most of the Florida sunshine.

Evelyn & Ian Fenne purchased this villa in 2005

Why Evelyn & Ian Fenne chose Southern Dunes

We originally purchased our villa as we had spent nearly 10 years visiting Florida before eventually deciding we wanted somewhere of our own we could call our 'home away from home'. Over the past 12 years we have spent many happy holidays in Florida.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is situated in a perfect location - near enough to Disney and far enough away from the crowds. It is on a beautiful golf course with shops/restaurants and bars close by.

Perfect home - roomy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely perfect. Everything was very clean and so comfortable. My daughter couldn't get enough of the pool.

Location is great as it is very close to lots of shops and the Wal-Mart and only around 20-30 mins from Disney. The owner was very helpful throughout the entire process. We all loved all the varieties of restaurants in the immediate area and LOVED the Checkers hamburgers, which is across the street from the Wal-Mart.

I recommend this property to anyone who is visiting the Disney/Orlando area and want to stay in a great home.

Thank you so much for providing such a great property for our stay!

Spacious, convenient home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home and found it to be an incredible value. Everything was well stocked (lots of towels, kitchen tools, etc.). Some things were starting to look a bit run down (blinds were bent askew, the tops of dressers were worn) but everything was clean and certainly more than adequate. The owner, Evelyn, was really helpful and gave us thoughtful tips for our visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Evelyn was incredibly responsive to emails as well. We did have a little frustration with getting the management company to actually charge my credit card for the balance due - I had to email and call several times - but it all worked out. I would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Lovely from the outside, Perfect on the inside.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the Villa was set up perfectly with an informative folder if we had any concerns. For us, it was situated perfectly away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The complex is lovely and well maintained, upon our arrival there was no delay at the gate as they were aware of our arrival.

The pool area was a godsend after busy days visiting the parks, a lovely spacious area to relax , although we didnt request the pool to be heated it was warm enough after the hot days but im sure during the winter period it would be recommended.

The service we received prior to, during and after our return has been 5*, nothing has been to much trouble.

We would highly recommend this Villa if you have a large family
