About the Owner

We live in Dorset, on the south coast of England with our pet dog Charlie. 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!

Golf Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Southern Dunes is our destination from Canada for an end of season golf competition. Southern Dunes golf course was renovated this past season and the greens are awesome. They have also made improvements to the bunkers - they made them even larger (if you can believe it)! We also enjoyed playing at Orange County National and Champions Gate. All the amenities (WIFI, TV & appliances) at the house worked great and it comfortably accommodated 4 golfers.

Lovely villa, well appointed, superb location

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa. Nice and quiet location.

Everything you need is there, right down to extra towels and toys for the pool and a barbecue for relaxing rest days between parks.

Kitchen is well v appointed. More than enough equipment to actually cook a proper meal( if you really want to) which is a refreshing change from the perfunctory 6 of everything and 2 small pans!

We loved it, and in due course, will be returning.

Perfect base for our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was better than we anticipated, very spacious, well equipped and clean. Also, most important for me....comfortable bed!! The owner was very helpful and pretty much immediate response to e-mail with our queries. Location was great with the Convenience of having Walmart a short distance away, Disney was around half an hour drive. Would definitely recommend this property...

Lovely villa in an attractive and peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a really comfortable, spacious property. It had everything we needed for a relaxing family holiday and is clean and well-maintained. The owners got in touch from the UK while we were away to check that everything was OK and were more than helpful. The manager was also easy to contact and quick to respond when needed. The villa was clean on arrival and the pool was lovely - we enjoyed spending lots of time in it.

It is about 45 minutes from the bustle of Orlando which suited us fine. We were able to explore both coasts and took a trip down to Key West and the Everglades during our second week. Swimming with dolphins, sky diving over Key West, the Kennedy Space Center, Universal Studios, Naples, Anna Maria Island and Outlet shopping - an amazing trip - thanks!

Great rental property for a family!

  • 4 of 5

I would actually give this property 4.5 stars. We stayed here four nights and five days. The rental was conveniently located near Legoland and not too far from the Disney parks. My boys loved playing in the pool. We had plenty of beds and showers. Our only complaint was some of the lights didn't work and there were no trash bags or soaps. After arriving, we had to run back to the store to buy shampoo, body soap, dishwasher and laundry detergent, etc. the kitchen can opener did not work and we had to buy one as well. Aside from those minor things, we had no hiccups. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!! And owners were super quick to reply to all of our questions. Great management!

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 11 years we have spent many happy holidays in Florida.
