About the property

4 bedroom/2 bathroom 1400 sq ft condo with screened balcony with playground view

The Ultimate Family Fun Getaway! Exciting Home Away from Home!

"The condo has been great. Super convenient to everything and very quiet. Did you remodel the condo or did you buy it remodeled? Everything looks designer level and is beautiful."

The condo was completely refurbished in 2016.

This condo is situated on Legacy Dunes resort at Kissimmee. Resort amenities include a tropical style swimming pool with fountains, a further swimming pool (both with sun loungers), a clubhouse with games room, a cafe, a bar, a gym and fitness center, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball and children's play area. It is a very convenient location near enough the theme parks to come back for lunch and return to the theme parks later for the firework displays. Our condo has a beautiful view of the resort lake from the screened balcony, and has all the comforts of your own home. This is a great location just off the W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway (192) and is close to shopping and restaurants, outlet center and convenient for golf, lakes, nature reserves and fishing.

We are returning to vacation rentals after a long break because our tenant is moving out of state.

Orlando, Kissimmee is a great location for a family holiday, with easy access to Florida's big attractions - Disney World, Busch Gardens,Hollywood Studios, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios and the amazing and awe-inspiring water parks of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Most people come for the theme parks.

Visit Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphins. You could play golf nearby. There is a wide choice of golf courses, including a Nick Faldo course or visit nature reserves.

Another must is to visit Busch Gardens at Tampa Bay - an hour drive.

There are also rides through the Florida Everglades and plenty of children-friendly activities to keep everyone happy. The area has some excellent beaches, amongst them the white sandy beaches of Clearwater Beach on the Gulf coast and Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach on the Atlantic coast.

If it's nightlife you are looking for then there are plenty of attractions such as Downtown Disney, Universal Studios, City Walk, and Kissimmee main street along with the night clubs and restaurants on International Drive.

Approximately 69 miles to the east you will find the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

Legacy Dunes, Kissimmee

Swim in the tropical pool, play tennis, volleyball or basketball at Legacy Dunes itself or use the golf driving practice net.

Walk and relax by the lake. Go to the gym or the clubhouse and games rooms.

Legacy Dunes is a great location for a family or group holiday, with easy access to Florida's big attractions.

There is nothing worse than taking the kids on vacation and being stuck in a hotel room while they are sleeping/lights out early and having to be quiet...

The benefit of staying in a condo includes a separate room for the kids and a living space for you to chill out in the evening. You also have a fully equipped kitchen and all the comforts of home. If you don't feel like cooking, there is the clubhouse with the games room, cafe and bar.

The complex is in a quiet location so you can relax before venturing out and about, the accommodation is clean and well kept with a lovely view over the lake. It is in easy reach of all facilities and parks. The pools are clean and well maintained and really refreshing when returning home after a day in the theme parks

About Mary Jacobs

Orlando is the theme park capital of the World, with a lovely winter climate. An excellent place to spend school holidays! and escape from colder and wetter climes! So buying a condo in a resort like Legacy Dunes seemed like a good idea! Somewhere to come during my retirement and somewhere to bring the Grandchildren - when both those things happen!!!

Mary Jacobs purchased this condo in 2015

Why Mary Jacobs chose Kissimmee

We found it much nicer and more relaxing to stay on Legacy Dunes Resort in a lovely condo - with all the comforts of home, than to stay in a hotel with all the hustle and bustle and cramped space.

What makes this condo unique

8834 Dunes Court is secluded and peaceful. Our condo is well located and at ground floor level, with no flights of stairs to climb with luggage. Relax and enjoy the view of the children's playground, lake and fountain from our screened balcony. Ideal for children with fabulous tropical pool with gently shelving beach style entry. Tennis, Volleyball and fitness center for older kids and adults. Walking by the lake.

#Legacy Dunes is (at the time of writing) number 1 for Specialty Lodging in Kissimmee.

Overall impression was great. Super clean. Unit was tastefully decorated and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at checked in a bit early which was AMAZING, especially since we had been driving for 21 hours. The condo was super clean. All the bedrooms looked like something you would easily find in a very nice hotel. Bathrooms were nicely stocked with bath towels and face cloths. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans, small appliances and cutlery. The large appliances are clearly well cared for and spotlessly clean. The washer and dryer were great and it was nice to be able to wash towels during our stay. There was a linen closet which had a broom and a great vacuum so that I was able to give the floors a cleaning as we were there for 7 days. The beds are SUPER comfortable. We all slept great. Wifi was great. Location was amazing. Originally we were a bit disappointed that we weren't closer to the main pool, but that was short lived. We had two 9 year olds with us and it was awesome to be able to watch them play at the park as the adults sat at watched them from the living room. The small pool was steps from the unit and we spent most of our time there. We did go to the main pool a few days and realized we liked our little pool better. It couldn't have worked out better. We were very close to the Disney parks and great restaurants. We really had no complaints at all. If I was going to be super picky, having a pair of scissors would have been nice but whose to say the people before us didn't take them by mistake. The patio door was a bit heavy to open too. Between 4 adults, we had to sit and come up with something and that's all we could come up with, and we tried. Mary the owner was amazing to deal with and at one point called me as I was having Trouble booking. That's customer service. Also sent me emails about local attractions. Great vacation, great condo. We would recommend this unit to anyone. Thanks Mary!

GREAT CONDO AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We are snowbirds from Maine. We spent 2 months at this condo and had a great time. Legacy Dunes is a very nice complex at the lower end of Route 192. It is close to everything, but not overwhelming traffic.

The condo was renovated last year and it is very relaxing and peaceful. Best of all, the beds are new and comfortable. The appliances in the condo are new also. The condo has an unheated pool behind the building. It has a large sundeck around the pool which is perfect for sunbathing and reading a book. The main pool at the clubhouse is heated, well maintained, with lots of lounge chairs and tables.

The condo has brought dishes, etc for 12 settings. Everything is well maintained and clean. It is a first floor unit which makes unloading luggage very easy.

The owner is very easy to work with and responds quickly. Her manager on property is efficient as well.

We enjoyed our visit so much that we have already booked again for 2018.

Spacious condo and convenient for all attractions

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very spacious and well equipped and situated in private grounds which had a view of the lake from the patio which was very nice to sit and relax in the morning over breakfast or after a hard day at the theme parks. It is very convenient for all the Disney theme parks which were only a few miles away and very easy to get to and close to the shops and restaurants (I’d recommend the Olive Garden on the main 192 highway). The pool was really nice and had plenty of room and sunbeds, even at the height of summer. Mary, the owner was very helpful, making the booking process and arrival an easy experience and also provided lots of guidance and useful tips on the local area and attractions. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this as a convenient and comfortable place to stay.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property was spacious, bright, and suited our family-of-five needs. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and have privacy, when needed. The kitchen was roomy and useful. Mary, the condo owner, was very helpful, friendly, and quick to answer email questions. She sent multiple emails with upcoming events and things to do in the Orlando area. The condo grounds were lovely, and both pools were clean, warm, and provided lots of entertainment for our young ones. I deducted one star for minor reasons: the lamp in the kids' bedroom did not work, so the only light available was the closet light. The floor and baseboard were dirty in the master bath, as was the kitchen floor. There wasn't adequate kitchenwear to properly cook a meal. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our time at Legacy Dunes and would definitely return.

Owner's Response: We will change the bulb in the lamp (or the lamp) in the kid's bedroom. I am sorry the floors were not as clean as they should have been - this was a day that guests left and new guests arrived on the same day. But I will raise this issue with our cleaning staff. This is the first time lack of sufficient kitchen ware has been mentioned, but this is easily remedied. Thanks for staying!

Although we would recommend a car, there are many who do not want to or cannot drive. Getting to and from Legacy Dunes/Disney World and other attractions in the area will require you to use a taxi or the LYNX Bus System. Other transportation services such as chauffer driven limousines, vans, town cars, mini-buses and motor coaches are also available to shuttle you around.
