About The Owner

Doug and Gabrielle Slaine are Realtors in Canada and property managers since 1994- we pride ourselves in taking care of our clients.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Haines City

We have been to Florida often, we have 1) stayed in Disney, 2) rented close to Disney 3 minutes 3) rented 10 minutes from Disney and finally 4) rented 18 minutes from Disney. We choose this Villa backing onto Golf course in a gated community 18 minutes from Disney for the following reasons. It Took 4 years to find the right area , we are seasoned Disney visitors You have to drive to Disney, whether it be 3- 20 minutes. The area around Disney is extremely busy with traffic, trucks, people... so we choose to be outside the hustle and bustle of the homes around Disney, We bought a home that is in a 24 hour Guarded Gated community which is Very Quiet, backs directly onto Golf Course and has an attached Wal-Mart Super Store. If you rent near Disney You will have to drive to your vacation home, then Drive to your Grocery store, then Drive to your beer store, Then Drive to your Restaurants, Then drive to the Golf Course... where as here at our villa ... it is all walkable. Simply If you take a home close to Disney, you will spend all your time driving, while at our property, you spend all your time 'vacationing'. You will take 10 minutes longer to get to Disney and 10 minutes longer to get home but you will have 23 hours and 40 minutes a day for vacation, stay close to international drive and you will see what we discovered . Thanks, Doug and Gabrielle.

Isn't walking better than driving, we start each morning we are there with a casual walk around the majestic Southern Dunes development, the sidewalks wrap around the golf course, our home located on the 17th holes ensures that we over look the peaceful golf course , with not a golfer insight until 10.30-11.00 am .

GREAT SPOT TO SIT OUTSIDE WITH YOUR TEA OR COFFEE EVERY AM. hard to imagine until your are there.

Simply....... Does it really matter if your drive to Disney is for 8 minutes or 18 are on Vacation , you deserve a quite, secure, well maintained, licensed vacation home!

What makes this villa unique

You can Walk to the Golf Course , Walk to the Restaurants (especially Manny's Chop House .....a must), you can walk to Wal-Mart, you can walk to the Bank,... You can walk to the tennis Courts. Our home has 4 beds and 3 baths all on one floor - great for people who can't do stairs. The games room is great for kids. We have TVs in every room, including a flatscreen HDTV in the Living room. The Hot tub has arrived.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your house. Our trip was wonderful. The house was very neat, and everything was supplied...even the ponchos which came in handy. The pool temperature was perfect and my husband was ecstatic about the hot tub. My family had a great time, hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Unhappy Camper

  • 3 of 5

My Wife & I are in our 70's & wanted the Pool & Hot Tub for therapy. When we arrived the Pool was cold & We called the management co & got a recording that they would call back, Doug called & stated to call him with all problems, he told me where to turn the breaker on, it took 2 day's to warm up. I also told Doug that the Hot Tub was dirty with foam, sand & items floating in the water, he stated it was just cleaned. The breaker kicked off the 1st day & had trouble with the control, Doug stated that it was quirky. the tub worked about half the time we were there 17 day's, also it was only 120 volt & would lose heat as soon as you took the cover off, Doug stated to only remove the cover half way to hold more heat in. After about 8 day's I bought Bromide Tablets & put 2 in the floating filter, I then called Doug & he stated that Bromide would not mix with Chlorine & sent a Pool & Tub person to m/t the Tub, he did not know how to m/t it & called his Boss who drained it & stated that they do not drain the Tub's when they service them. The smoke alarms went off at 3:30 am In the 2nd master & hallway, we had to buy the Batteries & install them using a chair. The stove vent would not shut off with the switch, had to shut the breaker off. There's no Pool Light, Doug stated that people would not shut them off when they left, there is 1 fixture outside with 3 lower watt bulb's & only 2 worked. Some buttons on the Microwave don't work. The sofa is showing wear with glue over the worn area's. The heat pump for the Pool look's old & rusty. The Batteries in the home phones are bad. Note: The home is very clean and neat, it's to bad that Doug can't keep up with these problems, leaving a dirty Hot Tub & not addressing the problems is not the way to run a rental where peoples health is a concern. We would not rent this property again.

Owner's Response: owner's response to #11046815 "unhappy camper"Without prejudice or malice, It is unfortunate that we , the owners are having to write a response to this review as we have only had ONE negative review in the past 22 years that we have been providing guest rentals . The one negative review was a complaint about how cold the bay was for swimming in the summer. I would like to address all of the aforementioned concerns individually . 1) lites : fan lite came with the bulbs in use 2) the hot tub is serviced weekly . The hot tub was cleaned and set up with chemicals the day of the guests arrival by the owner . "Foam ,sand and items floating " is if the guests entered the hot tub without showering as body fluids alters chemistry causing these results. The hot tub is capable of heating to 105 degrees and maintaining its heat and keeping the lid half on was a suggestion . The hot tub also has different modes and when not in use will go onto save heat mode . The breaker kicking off was investigated and was replaced . The hot tub is equipped with lights and jets and we find that when guests arrive they push all the buttons .We have an OWNERS GUIDE and recommend that all guests familiarize them selves with the instructions left for all the information about the home. This guest decided it was ok to add bromide when the hot tub is serviced with a chlorine floater google the danger this can cause . Guest also THREATENED TO FIRE OUR POOL CONTRACTOR ! Guest repeatedly was SWITCHING off OUR homes main breaker ! Obviously contributing to alarms going off , microwave and pool and hottub heat issues , solar heating also helps pool to stay at 85F ,heat pump is 2 yrs old everyone knows humidity causes rust which doesn't affect the workings of the pump . Guest was told he could change batteries and would be reimbursed . They where left empty ! Endangering his family and our property Other issues about the guest : received 16 phones calls in his 17 day stay There is a 2 car park limit he had 3 and one was leaking oil . The home is to be cooled to 73 degrees as stated the home was at 66 . We as owners are at the property 4 x / yr and have a great management to address guests needs promptly . Unfortunately these guests where not able to see all the positive aspects of the property . Our usual ratings are 4.8-5 this guests gave us a 3. One thing that is correct , we will not be renting to this renter again as he puts our property at risk, through improper actions

I have no hesitation in recommending this home as a base for your Orlando vacation.

My wife and I have been visiting Florida every year for over 20 years and this home was the best equipped we've ever stayed in. As a couple we weren't able to take advantage of all the facilities (my wife refused to play pool with me) but a family would love it. The beds were comfortable and the fixtures and fittings in good order. The kitchen had every device known to man. It's reassuring to be in a gated community and the golf course is superb. Good supermarkets are close by and Manny's Chophouse is excellent for lunch or dinner.

Christmas Experience!

  • 4 of 5

This property was very clean and just like the photos reflected.

Location was perfect.....with backing on to the golf course we could watch good shots and maybe not so good shots right from the pool deck area, which we enjoyed very much..we had a chance to play the course and if you ever get a chance wow you need to come and rent Doug & Gabrielle place and yes they were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. Having a Walmart store right outside the gate was perfect for picking up all your supplies, they had everything you needed right there.

I would stay at this villa again I hope we get the chance!

Magical Disney

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful house, everything you need for a great holiday, house spotless and so well equipped . About 30 mins away from Disney parks. A very big Walmart shop very close as are some fast food restaurants (mc Donald's , Burger King , KFC ) and Mannys Chop house. Would totally recommend this house as it completely met our expectations and more!! Sad to have to leave it after 2 weeks
