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

Excellent place to stay. The location is outstanding and the house more than met our expectations. This was our first time renting a house instead of staying at a hotel and this is the only way to go. Very very close to a Walmart and a variety of other places to shop as well as great restaurants. The condition of the home as well as the pool is outstanding. Great TV and just everything to make your stay a comfortable one.

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!

Great familiy home

  • 4 of 5
Great comfortable family home in a quiet gated community situated on a top ranked golf course and close to many other well know golf courses. Easy access to many tourist attractions and shopping malls/outlets. This house is well equipped with cable TV in almost every room, A/C and a complete kitchen which gives you the option to eat in (BBQ) or out.

The house is just great and is just so much a step up from renting a hotel room. There is everything you need to make your stay very comfortable and an at home feeling. It is in a great location that provides about anything you might want almost within walking distance. The gated security is a nice feature for those concerned with their safety. We would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5
This was a pleasant surprise and very relaxing. I travel a lot and normally stay in hotels. This was suggestion from one of our team members and turned out to be a very relaxing atmosphere. We were working at the Walmart location just outside of the gate opening a new Ben's Soft Pretzels inside the Walmart. So not only is this a great place to stay it is convenient to shopping and the best tasting pretzels known to mankind.

Thanks for the great place!!!

the BEST of everything!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! The absolute best part of this house was having our own pool to relax and play in after the long sweaty days at Legoland. No crowds, no bratty kids (other than my own). Next was the location, EASY 20 minutes to Lego and Disney. Also just about any food or shopping was on the way to either park or right outside the neighborhood. Then, the house, nice sheets and towels instead of over bleached hotel stuff. Perfect layout with kids room close but separate. Plenty of gathering space to eat and relax in the living room - dining area with real dishes. Back to the pool, I was afraid it would feel small but there was plenty of play area in the shallow end, enough space in the deep end for dive sticks and play. Also, swimming end to end was enough to feel like it was a little bit of exercise too. The neighborhood was quiet but there was enough activity, walkers, workers, golfers, that I felt safe and never isolated. The rental process was smooth beginning to end and from the first communication I felt welcome and at ease! We never had to call for help from Guy, but met him on the way out. I am sure anything would have been easily taken care of. By far this was our best vacation experience EVER! My son has already asked for season passes to Lego for Christmas so I guess its time to plan our next trip! Thanks so much Angie!

Great location, great property....highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here for two weeks and it completely felt like home. Kitchen was fully equipped, bedrooms were extremely comfortable and there were even 3 TVs if we all wanted to watch something different! We spent alot of time in the pool and golfed 3 rounds at Southern Dunes as well. The property was very well maintained and if we had any problems (we called to report a neighbour's leaking pipe) then the property maintenance person was there immediately. We shopped at Winn Dixie around the corner which had excellent prices. Walmart was also close by as well. Local restaurants we loved included Sonny's BBQ and Manny's. All the amenities you need are close by...within walking distance even.

We were really happy with this location as it was only 20 minutes to Disney, 30 minutes to Orlando Outlet Malls and approx 1 hr 20 minutes to either coast (eg. Clearwater Beach or Cocoa Beach). We were able to go on many day trips and not spend too many hours in a car.

This is a great location and a great home to consider for your holiday. I would highly recommend it.
