About Beth George

Hello, as you know my name is Beth and I'm the person who organises our family holiday home on Southern Dunes. What else? Well I'm English, I live in Devon, I'm middle aged, have a husband and daughter, all the usual stuff but what is more important is the importance I put on providing a good quality stay for my guests and that is how I think of the people who stay at our home, my guests.

I love to travel and the accommodation is very important to me, nothing spoils a holiday as much as bad accommodation and that is why I work hard to make sure everything is as it should be at our home. My family and friends spend several months a year at our home so we can keep everything up to scratch, we change, add or improve something on every visit !

I think it is important for guests to have confidence when booking their holiday home and I do all that I can to make this happen. From the first enquiry onwards I always answer emails quickly, usually within a couple of hours, my phone number is on our listing and guests have my address so I'm always here to help. The happiness of my guests is important to me.

For me, one of the things that gets me through a tough day is the thought of sitting on the deck, warm, peaceful and with family and friends and it would be great to think that others may find that too.

Beth George purchased this villa in 2005

Why Beth George chose Haines City

What we love about our home is it’s size and location. We often holiday with family and friends and in the past we have found the accommodation disappointing, technically it has enough beds for all of us but it really isn't comfortable to spend time in, you feel you have to go out to get some space. Well not here we have a good size home, 12-foot vaulted ceilings, a large south facing deck and pool, a large family room that overlooks the pool, as does the master bedroom and we have 2 bathrooms. So we can all enjoy the space and comfort of a larger holiday home. Something else I love about the location of our home, is it’s only a few minutes from Win-Dixie, Wal-Mart, the bank, restaurants and take-aways, so I don't have to keep asking my husband to drive me, I can just walk. Southern dunes is a very safe place to walk or jog, there are friendly and helpful security guards at the gate house 24/7 and they also patrol the community but more than that there are residents and other holiday makers about all the time. Southern Dunes isn't one of the ghost communities that people just return to at night to sleep.

And then there’s the golf! The course itself makes a beautiful backdrop, it meanders through the houses giving Southern Dunes an open spacious feel, it’s just great to look at, even if like me you don’t play. But if you do like a game the course is nationally ranked and both enjoyable and challenging to play. The clubhouse serves good food too and of course it is all open to the public.

I hope to welcome you to our home and that you enjoy your holiday as much as we do, my management company and I will do all that we can to make your stay all that you want.

What makes this villa unique

We bought our home in 2005 for all the family to enjoy and all three generations (hopefully four soon) do at every opportunity. Southern Dunes is great for us, it is close to everything but not too close, we have Highway US 27 running straight past the front gate. it goes north to Orlando and south to Miami, but when you're relaxing on the deck it doesn't intrude and we are just 10 minutes from Interstate 4 Highway (I-4) which takes you east to the parks and all the other attractions of Orlando or west to Tampa, Clearwater or St Pete’s.

The airport is convenient but we're not on the flight path, we can walk to the supermarkets but there’s no traffic jams or noise from them, we have restaurants and takeaways within walking distance as is the clubhouse and the golf is outstanding, not just on Southern Dunes but also in the surrounding area. We can chill out at home, even in the winter we spend hours relaxing around the pool, being south facing makes all the difference. We can enjoy the local area with Legoland, Bok gardens, an airboat ride or local shopping at Posner Park or we can be at the parks or “major” shopping in just 20 minutes. A little farther afield is NASA, Daytona or the beaches on the east or west coast, we are central to so much. We're in a great location, there’s so much more to central Florida than the parks, as if they're not enough in themselves!

I do also like the Haines city area because it has not been over developed; we still have small towns, orange groves and peace and quiet, it’s great to come home after a busy day.

Great Vacation,

  • 5 of 5

Thanks. We had a great vacation. The weather was really nice. We felt at home in your beautiful villa. It was very clean and the neighbourhood was nice and quiet. The house was very well equipped. A pool cover is the only thing we could think of that you didn't have. There was plenty of places to eat nearby which was great. Another television might be nice to have in the other bedroom. The pool area was great and had plenty of seating. We had a great time and thanks again for letting us rent your beautiful villa.

Owner's Response: You are more than welcome, I’m so pleased to hear that you felt at home and that you found everything you needed at the villa, unfortunately the pool cover was put away a little early this year. It’s great that our villa, Southern Dunes and Haines City added so much to your vacation.

Fantastic villa.

Comments written by guests in the homeowner’s guest book.

Scottish family. Family of 4. Stayed October 2013.

Fantastic villa - so good to come home to after a busy day at the parks. We all enjoyed the pool especially with it’s south - facing location.

So happy we have no dirty washing to take home thanks to the great home comforts.

Have to say very sad to be going home to rainy Scotland today – the weather has been fabulous !! Goodbye USA ! See you soon !

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our home. It is lovely and peaceful at the villa and having the south facing pool is a real bonus especially in the cooler months, it's great that you had time to enjoy it all. If you make it back to Orlando next time you're in the USA we'd be delighted to have you stay again.

Great Villa and a Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday even allowing for tropical storm Andrea (which worked in our favour to an extent as Islands of Adventure was not busy that day so we got to go on the big rides a few times with no real queues) and the suitcases were certainly heavier coming back!. The grandchildren certainly enjoyed the pool almost as much as the parks. We did manage to get some relaxation along the way though I guess that an "Orlando" holiday is always likely to be somewhat energetic - anyway it was a trip to remember and we had two grandchildren in tears as we pulled away from the villa on our way back to the airport.

This was a great villa, the only issue was that we were so busy I didn't get time to play on that very attractive looking golf course.

Beth was a real pleasure to deal with and so very friendly - would highly recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m delighted to hear that you had a good holiday and enjoyed your stay at our home and it’s good to know that booking the villa was a good experience too, it all adds to a great holiday. You did pack a lot into your holiday, all the Orlando essentials, pool, parks, shopping and relaxation but it is a little unfair that you missed out on the golf after putting all the work into organizing the trip but I guess that’s what grandparents do, maybe next time.

Our home is located just south of Orlando, in the gated community of Southern Dunes Golf and Country club which boasts a top ranked championship golf course with Club House, restaurant and practice area, it also has tennis courts, a playground, gym, 3 community pools and a boating lake, the whole area has lush grounds that are impeccably maintained and great to walk around. The villa is also only minutes from Wal-Marts and Winn-dixie, fast food outlets, banks and restaurants. Southern Dunes is only 5 minutes from Haines City with all its amenities and only 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport, it's a 20 minutes' drive to Disney and all the other parks and attractions of International Drive and all that great outlet shopping and the driving is so easy. Or if you would like to go to the beach the coast is a little over an hour's drive east or west the Gulf coast or Cocoa beach. Southern Dunes is close to everything but is quite and peacefull.

Other Activities: childrens playground and gym
