About the property

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, tiled floor, 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 walk-in shower with a rainshoweheadr, 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 five 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 will have the best of both worlds... Inside Southern Dunes you will 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.

Nice home. Nothing missing and the pool was just amazing. Great temperature.

  • 5 of 5

The home owner was a pleasure to deal with by email and responded quickly. If anything, ut was my fault in not sending the card permission signed fast right away but that didnt even come into play. Just a great experience so far. A huge thanks to the homeowner and you guys.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent another great week at Villa Bonita in December. This was our second annual trip to the Orlando area for a dog show at OCCC. Villa Bonita was a great place to unwind after busy days showing dogs. The house is spacious and had everything we needed. We had one minor maintenance issue and the property manager was at our door within 10 mins. to address it. Loved having all the restaurants close by and also Walmart for groceries. The pool was great, the neighborhood was peaceful and the weather was perfect!

Great Thanksgiving Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Bonita for a quick Thanksgiving/Birthday trip to Disney. The house was extremely clean and very comfortable for my little family. We had everything we needed and Walmart is a quick walk or drive down the street. The house even had little bars of soap and toilet paper, which is really nice because a lot of rentals we've stayed at usually don't have these things when we first arrive. The beds were very comfortable. The pool was lovely and my 3 year old daughter really enjoyed it. Disney was about a 20 minute drive away, which wasn't bad at all. The owner answered all of my questions very quickly and was very pleasant to work with. We very much enjoyed our stay, I only wish we could have stayed longer! We will keep this villa on our list the next time we make a trip to Disney.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came down for a quick mini vacation and we found the Villa Bonita to be the perfect spot for our stay! Walmart is a short ride away and our destination was just down the roads. Thanks for a wonderful experience...we will be booking this home again in the near future.

Nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much. The bedrooms all had nice clean bedding and the kitchen had dishes to use during our stay. We have stayed at other houses and this one had a good stock of towels to use which was a big plus for us since we love the pool. If this house is available for next trip to Legoland we will try to rent it. Hope this review helps

Clean, quiet, a little dated, but great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, and had a great space for my family visit with 3 adults and 1 child. My son practically lived in the pool! Kitchen and fixtures are a bit dated, but everything works. Property had plenty of towels and kitchen supplies for cooking, but does not come with disposables (paper towels, extra toilet paper). Walmart is literally right outside the resort area though so very minor complaint. Location was great! 20 minutes to Legoland, 26 minutes to Disney! Had a great time and would definately book again.

During your stay you will be able to play golf on one of the best golf courses of Florida. Also, if you wish, you can enjoy dinner at the clubhouse after a well spent day at Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Legoland or Busch Gardens. The neighbourhoods of Southern Dunes are surrounded by the golf course. At Lake Wales after a scenery route and an encounter at Spook Hill you will be on your way to Bok Tower a beautiful botanic garden which offers you also concerts. Just beyond the gate of Southern Dunes you will find everything you need for your daily shopping. Within twenty minutes you will find the Lake Wales mall with shops and a cinema.
