Overview

Davenport Villa Rental Photos and Description

3BR Golf-Course Vacation Rental Haines City, sleeps six

Villa Bonita is located at Southern Dunes, a quiet, friendly and relaxing neighborhood twenty minutes away from Disney World. The community is set on an 18-hole, true gem, Golf Digest 4-star-rated championship golf course. Even if you do not play golf, Southern Dunes is a great place to stay because of its natural beauty. The subdivisions are separated from each other by the fairways of the golf course.

This well-appointed, spacious villa features fast wireless internet enabling you to surf the internet and access your email, a 32 inch LCD HD TV and a 27 inch TV, a DVD player, DVR recorder, expansive volume ceilings, an open and fully-fitted kitchen, and a master bathroom with a garden tub and large walk-in shower. There is an additional bathroom with a bathtub and shower, a living room and a master bedroom with sliding glass doors that lead to a roofed-in porch and a south facing screened-in swimming pool with a furnished deck near the pool. There is a 24 hours guard-gated entrance.

Special features around the villa include the Southern Dunes 18-hole championship golf course and the private neighbourhood park with preservation areas and a landscaped lake.

The beauty of Southern Dunes is that, while being able to relax in a 'country club' atmosphere in a beautiful villa, you are only twenty minutes away from Disney's main gate and central Florida's many attractions (avoiding the traffic jams on the other roads leading to Disney). You'll have the best of both worlds... Inside Southern Dunes you'll have local amenities that include tennis courts, a community swimming pool, a play area and a clubhouse with restaurant and bar. And just minutes away you will find Winn-Dixie supermarket and Wal-Mart at the gate, and Eagle Ridge Mall nearby on Highway 27.

Reactions from guests after their vacation:

'The weather was great and the kids loved the pool. It was a little cool in the evening but it did not stop my kids from swimming. The golf course was great.

The carts had a computer which showed the exact distance to the green no matter where your ball was. Having Wal-Mart in walking distance was very convenient. The driving distance was not to far to the parks and we went to St. Petersburg beach for a day. We had a very enjoyable vacation.'

'We were so happy to get to the villa and we were absolutely thrilled to see how beautiful it was. Very open, bright and spacious. It was very, very clean and neat when we walked in the front door. We were so comfortable and right away it felt like home. Your villa is the perfect place for a family to stay. My grandsons spent hours in the swimming pool, and loved swimming in the night. Our vacation was wonderful and we definitely plan to stay at your villa again on our next trip.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent two weeks at Villa Bonita. A wonderful stay. What a luxury to step out of bed and to be able to swim in your own swimming pool. We enjoyed the Disney parks and the shopping very much. It is easy to get from Villa Bonita to everything Florida offers. The contact with the owner went fine, but also with the man on the spot. We can certainly recommend this villa and hope that we will be able to return. Until then we can fortunately see the photo's on the site and look back with warm feelings.

Spacious lovely Villa and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Villa with all of the amenities needed in a beautiful gated community. Very spacious and accommodated all of us comfortably including Dale, our fur baby. Convenient to shopping, restaurants and all of the parks. Don't know why you would stay in a hotel when you can have the conveniences of home right here. Wilhelm was very quick to respond prior to our arrival as well as when I asked if the Villa was available for another week. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will be back every year. Thank you Wilhelm for allowing us Northerners a wonderful and relaxing time away from the snow and cold in your lovely Villa. Kudos to you for being such a wonderful host.

Great for family and dogs

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter, myself and our dog stayed at this house for 5 nights. We were in Orlando for a dog show at the Orange County Conv. Center. The house was just what we were looking for. There was plenty of room for us to settle in for the week. The pool was WONDERFUL. The neighborhood beautiful and quiet. The house had all the amenities we were looking for, the ice maker was a bonus! The location of the house is great with grocery stores, restaurants, etc. close by, but completely separate from the housing community. I know the owner isn't responsible for the weather, but picture perfect Florida weather is always appreciated by a Minnesotan in December. The rent is reasonably priced because the house isn't glamorous. It's a practical place where you can unwind, relax, have the comforts of home like a washer and dryer while being on vacation. Thank you to the owner, we hope to be back next year.

We stayed here this past week to visit the parks in the area. The house is extremely clean and in a very nice community. I will definitely stay again when in the area.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a place for my husband and I, our two children and two dogs that was reasonably priced when I came across this listing. I was a bit skeptical because it was one of the cheaper options, but the pics and reviews looked good so I gave it a shot. Im glad we did! Communication with the owner was super fast and easy. The house is in a nice guard gated community with major stores and supermarkets right next to it. The pics look exactly like the house so there werent any surprises when we got there. It isnt "fancy" but if you are looking for something pet and budget friendly for a family I would definitely give it a try. If we ever come back this way we will be staying again.
