About Angie Johnston

Our families are from Ontario, Canada (Kitchener and Burlington) and we have been coming to Florida to vacation for many years. We have children ranging in ages from 4 - 20, who are avid golfers, theme park thrill seekers, beach bums and shopping junkies.

Angie Johnston purchased this villa in 2013

Why Angie Johnston chose Haines City

Our family discovered this awesome Southern Dunes location in 2011 on VRBO and decided we wanted to be a part of it. We love everything about the location, it is central to everything, safe, beautiful, full of things to do. We also have other family spending winters nearby so it keeps our family close together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was just as you saw in the pictures. Easy to find. Angie, the owner was wonderful. She responded quickly to all our emails and followed up to make sure we were happy with out stay. The home as clean and decorated beautifully. The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained. We like the pool, we got it heated and I am glad we did because it would have been quite cold otherwise being it was the end of October. The master bed was very comfortable and soft the way I like it with a pillow top. The second bedroom bed was very firm. There were extra pillows and blankets it you needed them. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and such but you will need to get basic items yourself. We found some things under the sinks like shampoo and laundry soap left behind by the previous renters which was nice. We left our non perishables behind for the next lucky renters as well. It was nice to be able to wash clothes when we needed to and there was plenty of hangers and an iron to get church clothes ready. Walmart was just outside the entrance to the community so it made it easy to run and get whatever we needed. Several fast food restaurants are nearby. We went to Universal which was about 30 to 45 min away, an easy commute off I-4. They also had beach towels and a few beach toys for kids. If I may suggest, a beach bag or something to carry stuff in might be nice. The beaches are an hour and a half to two hour east or west. There are a lot of toll roads so be aware of that. We would absolutely stay again and recommend this home to anyone. No more hotels for us. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as described. When I start looking for a home to rent I always read reviews first. If I could give this home a 10+ I would. Very quiet neighborhood. This house is clean, in a great location and relaxing atmosphere. It's close enough to the parks that it's not a long commute but far enough that you have privacy. We loved being able to open the door and the pool was there and you didn't have to share with anyone else. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this home for a vacation. The owner also refunded the deposit very quickly.

Annual Florida Trip

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay with family near Haines City, but they moved back north. I did some research and found this home. This is a very nicely maintained home with everything we needed for a quiet vacation. We like the quiet location that's a short drive to the tourist places and the kids got good use out of the pool! I had good communication with the owner which is always a plus. The only problem is we weren't ready to go home!!

We stayed for the month of Jan. 2015. Great view of the golf course and a south facing pool. Lots of places to eat in the area. Good facilities to eat in as well. Home as described and neat and clean. Lots of golf courses in the area. Nice to get away from the cold and snow of southern ontario.

Thanksgiving with Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home to cook a thanksgiving dinner for our elderly parents and friends. All the supplies and equipment were exactly what we needed to cook up a huge feast. We even did a tenderloin on the gas grill. We had plenty of table and chair space to feed everyone and tv was great for the football games.

Great home! Just like you see in the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at a vacation home and I don't see us going back to a hotel. This home was just like you see in the pictures, very comfortable. It was clean and nicely decorated. Washer, dryer, central air, pool, TV in two bedrooms and living room, and cable. Neighborhood is quiet and clean. Walmart is just outside the entrance, close to highway. The owner was very nice and quickly responded to our emails. Master bed had a pillow top and was very comfortable, 2nd Bed was a bit firm. Couches were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with cooking pots and pans, all the things needed to make a simple supper. You will need to get tp, paper towels, laundry detergent and such. Check the home first, you might find items left behind by previous guest that they didn't finish up and can save you a few dollars. Of course any perishable items will need to be purchased and disposed of when you leave. They had beach towels and some beach toys for little ones also guide books and brochures for you to look at. Disney and Universal are about 30-40 min drive. We liked that it was a gated community. We enjoyed our stay very much and would absolutely stay again. Thanks for making it feel like home!
