Sorry no pets. We have made this a home from home with original artwork and comfortable furniture, not just a rental. We live there three months of the year so it is really geared up as a home. Many extra features (thoughtful items like hairdryers, cool box, pool/beach towels, pool toys and beach chairs). We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.
After holidaying in Florida for years and coming up to retirement anticipating a longer vacation we decided to buy our own place. With our experience of renting we knew what holidaymakers appreciate and enjoyed making our house a welcoming home.
Gillian Walker purchased this townhome in 2003
The central location set in the real Florida appealed and the golf course house with its fabulous view just knocked us out. There is plenty to do in the area and lovely friendly neighbours.
This is a beautiful house and being an artist I have enjoyed painting pictures to hang on all those blank walls. We love sitting out in the Florida room for breakfast or reading a book in the rocker.
Each time we go we do more to our home to make it as comfortable and welcoming as possible, we love having guests who seem to appreciate all we do to make it what it is - fabulous!
Mrs. Walker: we had a wonderful vacation at your beautiful home, we would love to return next year, if the dates would be open .I will be certain to contact you in the future. I would recommend your home to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in a picture perfect setting. Wonderful accommodation's and clean environment, beautiful artwork with all the amenities.The view of the 4th green in the morning, while drinking coffee on your screened patio, will be our most favorite memory. The golf course was beautiful along with being brutal with all the Hugh sand bunkers. We had a delightful time.
We went to Florida for 2 weeks over Christmas and had an amazing time! The house was absolutely beautiful and met all our needs. Lovely area and friendly neighbours. We will def be back
Excellent stay in this fully-equipped home. Highly recommended especially for 6 people since the sofa was not to comfortable. You will love it. I will rent it next time
This townhouse was absolutely perfect. This was a family vacation that included my husband our 2 boys and their grandparents. We loved how clean and inviting this home was. My in-laws and I enjoyed the patio every morning. We watched the sun come up as the ground crew was getting the golf course ready for the day. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect home away from home. My family and I are already talking about our next stay. Thank you Jillian for making our vacation an absolute success!!!
If you live golf like I do, this is a 6 star stay. It doesn't get better than this place. We loved it.
We had a wonderful time at this home. Very stylishly decorated, but comfy to live in. The paintings were all done by the owner and she is quite talented indeed. They added a nice personal tough to the home. The location was great. We sat outside and watched the golfers hit their balls onto the green. Everything we needed was in the home. We would definitely rent this one again. Thanks, Cal and Gillian for the use of your lovely home.
Beautiful townhouse on 4th green of Southern Dunes golf course - we spent 6 weeks enjoying it! - The townhouse is a 'step above' most rentals, as original art is displayed; carpets were extremely clean as was the rest of the townhouse.
A couple of points to make-- remember you are on the 4th green and maintenance starts
very early every morning, windows need to be kept closed to avoid the noise, that's your
trade off for the view.
Southern Dunes' Community pools are NOT heated -- we would love to rent this t.h. again, if community pools were heated....Ontario, Canada
We loved the central location close to the real Florida with it's many nature reserves and being so near to the amusement parks was a bonus. The setting of Southern Dunes Golf & County Club was particularly appealing and being in Haines City with it's small town feel. We weren't disappointed we have lovely neighbours up and down our road - everyone is so friendly and welcoming. They really make you feel part of the community.
With both east and west coast beaches being just over an hour away you have a great choice. Just across the road from the clubhouse means you can drive your cart to pick up your clubs and you never miss a tee off time. The clubhouse restaurant/bar is great for Friday or Saturday nights and the Sunday buffet is well worth sampling. Across the 27 is Manny's which is quite famous in the area and an experience our guests enjoy - but ring ahead it is always busy with great atmosphere, happy hour 4 - 7. With our agents close by our guests have added security.
Other Activities: We love visiting all the state parks in the area plus Bok Sanctuary for their gardens. Circle B Bar Reserve a drive away is well worth a visit for its nature and peacefulness.
Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club is centrally situated. There are plenty of shopping opportunities even the men get carried away.
A trip to Manny's Chop House just across the road is an experience we recommend to all our guests but ring ahead for a time, the food is fantasic, good value and the atmosphere is amazing.
Golf: Set in the famous 24 hour secure Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club. Southern Dunes is an award winning PGA championship golf course ranked number 6 in Florida in Golf Digest 2007 - 2008.
