Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great stay at this vacation home. The owners were excellent at answering any questions that I had prior and after renting their house. Everything was as described in the listing. I was so happy to find it very clean and tidy when we arrived. The pool was so refreshing after a long day. One day we just stayed around the house swimming and relaxing in the cool air conditioning of the house (it was 105 degrees with the humidity) so it was perfect. The owners had provided a treasure hunt for the kids. Such fun! When my kids found there was actually treasure they could keep, they were so excited. A light bulb went out during our stay and when I called the property manager, Maria, she quickly arranged for some to be delivered. Since we were to be gone, she was to set it by the door. When I arrived at one of the theme parks, I was afraid I had left the coffeepot on in the house. I was leaving my family behind and beginning to drive back when I called Maria and asked if the maintenance could check for me (even though it was my own stupidity that had put me in this situation.) She was wonderful. She responded that it would be no problem and they would make sure it was taken care of for me. This allowed me to go back to the park with my family and enjoy my time there. Incredible. I am so appreciative for all that the owners and the property manager did to make our stay so special. I will definitely stay here again if we make it to Florida again.

Comfortable and clean vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It was comfortable and clean. Most importantly, Riem, the owner was very responsive and provided us with a lot of information up front. We will stay here again if we have the opportunity.

Lovely House, still awaiting security deposit

  • 2 of 5

The house location is amazing, the villa backs onto the Sixth green of the golf course. The house is a little dated and tired, but that's to be expected from the holiday rental. The bed in the second bedroom is quite uncomfortable and makes a racket when you just climb into it.

But aside from this minor issues, the house is a lovely place to stay. Fully kitted out and a pleasure to stay at.

However the main issue I have though is the terms and conditions clearly state from Riem, the owner, that the security deposit is needed with in 2 days of booking. I made the payment on time, and the confirmation states that the said deposit will be returned within 15 days of departure. Its now day 18 since leaving, NO deposit returned, and I've sent two emails trying to contact Riem, NO reply. I know for a fact that my dad and I treated this property with the up most care, like it was our own and left it exactly as we found it, so there cant be a delay due to inspection of the property. BE WARNED!!!

Owner's Response: Hello Mr. Cantelow, To clarify the facts: I appreciate that you treated the vacation home very well. We refunded your deposit of $250 via PayPal on April 22. To track the refund, the PayPal Unique Transaction ID # is 9F4478682J185722H). On April 22, I also sent you an additional email informing you of the refund. I am not sure, Mr. Cantelow, why you post three days later, that you did not receive your deposit. Did you receive neither the refund nor my message? Might there be a problem with your email? Please let me know how I can help with this. Best regards, Riem

Perfect Spot for any sort of vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'll start with the only negative. The houses in this complex are very close together, which if you are from the northeastern U.S. like us, you might not be used to. That said, houses close together is what you come to expect in a gated community on a golf course. Location is perfect. We didn't do the Disney thing, but it's close by if that is what you want to do. We did a lot of walking, hiking and sightseeing and this location lets you get to anything in a reasonable amount of time. The house was wonderful - everything in working order that we used. The pool was very welcome - temps were 90-95 while we were visiting. Patio around the pool was wonderful for early morning breakfast by the pool while watching the golfers go by. House was very clean and very comfortable.

Tremendous value for the money with the extra bedrooms. The owner did us an enormous favor that she was not obliged to do. She was helpful, responsive, and we would certainly come back and recommend this place to anyone. The 24 hour Wal-mart right outside the community gates means you can get anything at any hour if you need it.

Tiniest of considerations: We arrived at 4pm very hot and very thirsty and had picked up drinks, but no ice cubes were in the freezer. Maybe in this day and age that is no longer possible to do for people. Side note - If you are looking for a high end luxury home with appliances worth more than most people's kitchens, this probably isn't the place for you, but if you are looking for comfortable, clean and welcoming at a very good price, you really can't beat this rental.

Great villa located in amazing resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in this house. It’s located in a gated and guarded community which is kept spotlessly tidy. We have no children, but this would be a place where I’d feel very comfortable bringing them along. The community also has a golf course and part of green is right outside the property.

The rooms were very comfortable, and the house had all the amenities we needed including a fully stocked kitchen and everything was immaculate upon our arrival. We found the property exactly in the state it has been advertised on the website (nice pool, high speed internet, fully equipped kitchen, very clean). It was a home away from home. The owners were also very responsive during our decision-making and during out stay.

We were spoilt for choice: Golf, swimming, walks in various nature reserves, Disneyworld (and numerous other theme parks), shopping, as well as trips to Miami, Daytona, Tampa and the Kennedy Space Centre. Our favourite however was playing Golf on premise every day early in the morning.

We would stay in this lovely property again anytime and unreservedly recommend it!

Our villa is a great place, but its location is one of a kind. In addition to Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World being nearby, the villa itself is situated on the beautiful premises of Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club, an award-winning 18-hole course. This gated community sits amidst orange groves just south of Walt Disney World. There are plenty of activities for the entire family, including a restaurant, communal swimming pools, a children’s playground, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts and much, much more!
