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

Dear Angie,

Many thanks, the security deposit refund was received. We really had a wonderful time at your villa and didn't want to leave...When coming back, we were of course a bit jet lagged and got dragged quickly back into work and everyday life. As such, please excuse that I answer only now. Many thanks again and all the best.

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.

2 Week Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous trip!!! This is an excellent house to stay for vacation. Very quiet neighborhood. We had five people but it can sleep 10 easily. The pool was perfect and clean!! The pool company came every week to clean the pool. We had a fire alarm beeping and the Southern Dunes Manager came out immediatly to help us replace the battery. He recommended Manny's and Egg City as well which are fabulous and a must!! The house is centrally located to everything and we saw a lot of Florida. We went to Disney for 5 days, Cape Canaveral (Space Center, Cocoa Beach, Ron Jon’s Surf Shop), Daytona Speedway, and Holiday Park for an airboat everglade tour (Gator Boys on Animal Planet) in Fort Lauderdale. If we ever get back to Florida, we will definitely pick your home again!!! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay there. It was not only economically but very comfortable!!!!

Enjoyable Stay in Southern Dunes

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this terrific villa for a boys golf weekend in May 2014. The villa was spacious enough for the four of us and had all of the amenities that we needed. It was great to come back from a round of golf and relax in the beautiful private pool overlooking the second fairway of the Southern Dunes course. The Haines City location made it convenient to travel to various golf courses in the area. In addition to playing the excellent and challenging Southern Dunes course, we also played Disney's Magnolia course, which was only a 30 minute drive and another course in nearby Davenport.

There were two grocery stores close by and also a Walmart. There is a great steakhouse called Manny's Chophouse nearby - highly recommend!

This villa is great for a golf getaway, but would also be great for families going to Disney and visiting other central Florida attractions. Overall I was very pleased with the villa!

Great vacation rental! Grill a PLUS!!

  • 5 of 5
Our Jan 2014 rental was our second VRBO rental and we will definitely do this again. Angie was so easy to work with and checked in on us by email to ensure we were enjoying our stay. The property was perfect for us and as advertised. My husband noted the gas grill in one of the pictures which also included a golf course view and he was immediately sold on this property. It is centrally located and convenient to the many golf courses that we played, including Southern Dunes. We also feel that the price was perfect. Fortunately, we had to call Gus the property manager for a smoke detector battery replacement and he recommended an "off the beaten path" restaurant called "Cherry Pockets". Great food and an interesting experience. We would definitely consider renting this house again. Very quiet and great golf course views!

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret-Ann, I love that it was the "grill" that sold your husband! We are so fortunate to have our super Property Manager Guy on site so he can look after things like light bulbs and batteries, etc. He's a keeper. So happy you enjoyed your week away from the incredible winter we are having up north. I will definitely try Cherry Pockets on my next visit. I had heard it was a lot of fun and great food. Thank you so much for your complimentary feedback.
