About the property

Villa in Southern Dunes, Haines City, Orlando, Florida, USA - Villa With Private Pool. Situated On The Southern Dunes Golf And Country Club Gated Community

This property can sleep 6 people in 3 double bedrooms and has the extra facility of a sofa bed. For the comfort of all our guests the villa is non smoking throughout. The community is gated for your added security and immediately outside the gates guests will find a 24 hour Walmart (that sells practically everything), restaurants, fast food outlets and shops. From the pool deck the villa overlooks the 3rd tee and green providing superb, relaxing views. The excitement of all major theme parks is only 20 minutes drive away. Access to the Atlantic coast and the Gulf coast is easy by road and both can be reached in just 90 minutes. The villa is situated on a quiet avenue and provides a peaceful homecoming after a busy day at the parks.

About Len Holman

After visiting Florida many times we decided to take the plunge and purchase our own home. Southern Dunes is our favourite location and we spend as much time there as we can.

Len Holman purchased this villa in 2014

Why Len Holman chose Davenport

We chose Southern Dunes because it is an amazing location. It is very peaceful and contains a great golf course that is challenging and beautifully manicured. The main road to all major theme parks is very close by and it takes only 20 minutes to reach the parks by car. Being situated in the heart of Central Florida means we can reach both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts in less than 90 minutes.

The large Walmart and other supermarkets that are situated at the entrance to the complex are invaluable and well within walking distance from the villa. Restaurants and fast food outlets are also very close by if we choose to eat out.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has a stunning west facing pool deck that delivers a wonderful, uninterrupted view of the third tee. The property is not overlooked to the rear affording a strong feeling of privacy. The property is very well equipped with 3 flat screen cable TVs and free telephone calls can be made not just locally from the landline but to the UK as well! There is free wifi throughout the villa available for all guests. Kitchen facilities are ample should you wish to cook at home and amongst the other facilities are baby equipment, DVD player, CD & radio, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Very well kept gardens and exterior!

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the property. We have visited Southern Dunes in the past, but never stayed here ourselves so we were really excited. The views over the golf course were amazing. It was wonderful to be swimming in the pool or on the loungers, and be able to experience the beautiful views.

The facilities in the villa were also excellent and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need. The company who dealt with the maintenance of the property were also really friendly. We phoned them to let them know about a tear in the netting over the pool and they were quick to repair it. I would love to stay in this villa again, in fact we were reluctant to leave!

Beautiful home with a nice pool on a gorgeous golf course. We enjoyed sitting by the pool watching the golfers! Small extras supplied by the owner were nice! The owner was very pleasant to work with! Would stay here again!

Lovely Villa with great golf course views

  • 4 of 5

The house is very comfortable and equipped with most things you could possibly need for a most enjoyable stay. The owner is really helpful and very quick to answer any questions you have. The views over Southern Dunes Golf course are fantastic and we enjoyed just sitting outside, having a cool drink, people watching.

Pool heating was not on when we arrived, however the property managers were very quick to rectify this.

Would certainly stay again !

The villa was welcoming from the minute we stepped into it. It had all the facilities we required, was very clean and comfortable. We have stayed in Villa's in Florida before, including Southern Dunes, but this was the most well equipped with crockery, cutlery and linens. Len was very responsive to my email queries , never more than 24 hours. Would highly recommend this property for a great holiday location - we would definitely return to this villa.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Florida and we couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation. The Villa was comfortable and the amenities included everything you could wish for and more. The quiet surroundings of Southern Dunes meant that when we needed some down time this was the perfect place, far enough away from the the bright lights of the theme parks to just relax but close enough if you wanted to jump in the car and go. The pool area wasn't over looked and the view of the the 3rd hole on the golf course kept us very entertained at times. If I was to return to Florida I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! I was particularly grateful for the help and advice received from Len on everything from where to buy park tickets to detailed instructions and directions.
