About Beth George

Hello, as you know my name is Beth and I'm the person who organises our family holiday home on Southern Dunes. What else? Well I'm English, I live in Devon, I'm middle aged, have a husband and daughter, all the usual stuff but what is more important is the importance I put on providing a good quality stay for my guests and that is how I think of the people who stay at our home, my guests.

I love to travel and the accommodation is very important to me, nothing spoils a holiday as much as bad accommodation and that is why I work hard to make sure everything is as it should be at our home. My family and friends spend several months a year at our home so we can keep everything up to scratch, we change, add or improve something on every visit !

I think it is important for guests to have confidence when booking their holiday home and I do all that I can to make this happen. From the first enquiry onwards I always answer emails quickly, usually within a couple of hours, my phone number is on our listing and guests have my address so I'm always here to help. The happiness of my guests is important to me.

For me, one of the things that gets me through a tough day is the thought of sitting on the deck, warm, peaceful and with family and friends and it would be great to think that others may find that too.

Beth George purchased this villa in 2005

Why Beth George chose Davenport

What we love about our home is it’s size and location. We often holiday with family and friends and in the past we have found the accommodation disappointing, technically it has enough beds for all of us but it really isn't comfortable to spend time in, you feel you have to go out to get some space. Well not here we have a good size home, 12-foot vaulted ceilings, a large south facing deck and pool, a large family room that overlooks the pool, as does the master bedroom and we have 2 bathrooms. So we can all enjoy the space and comfort of a larger holiday home. Something else I love about the location of our home, is it’s only a few minutes from Win-Dixie, Wal-Mart, the bank, restaurants and take-aways, so I don't have to keep asking my husband to drive me, I can just walk. Southern dunes is a very safe place to walk or jog, there are friendly and helpful security guards at the gate house 24/7 and they also patrol the community but more than that there are residents and other holiday makers about all the time. Southern Dunes isn't one of the ghost communities that people just return to at night to sleep.

And then there’s the golf! The course itself makes a beautiful backdrop, it meanders through the houses giving Southern Dunes an open spacious feel, it’s just great to look at, even if like me you don’t play. But if you do like a game the course is nationally ranked and both enjoyable and challenging to play. The clubhouse serves good food too and of course it is all open to the public.

I hope to welcome you to our home and that you enjoy your holiday as much as we do, my management company and I will do all that we can to make your stay all that you want.

What makes this villa unique

We bought our home in 2005 for all the family to enjoy and all three generations (hopefully four soon) do at every opportunity. Southern Dunes is great for us, it is close to everything but not too close, we have Highway US 27 running straight past the front gate. it goes north to Orlando and south to Miami, but when you're relaxing on the deck it doesn't intrude and we are just 10 minutes from Interstate 4 Highway (I-4) which takes you east to the parks and all the other attractions of Orlando or west to Tampa, Clearwater or St Pete’s.

The airport is convenient but we're not on the flight path, we can walk to the supermarkets but there’s no traffic jams or noise from them, we have restaurants and takeaways within walking distance as is the clubhouse and the golf is outstanding, not just on Southern Dunes but also in the surrounding area. We can chill out at home, even in the winter we spend hours relaxing around the pool, being south facing makes all the difference. We can enjoy the local area with Legoland, Bok gardens, an airboat ride or local shopping at Posner Park or we can be at the parks or “major” shopping in just 20 minutes. A little farther afield is NASA, Daytona or the beaches on the east or west coast, we are central to so much. We're in a great location, there’s so much more to central Florida than the parks, as if they're not enough in themselves!

I do also like the Haines city area because it has not been over developed; we still have small towns, orange groves and peace and quiet, it’s great to come home after a busy day.

A Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa! Where to start..

1. Superb gated community which provides that extra feel of security.

2. Excellent location in Haines City close to Walmart, Manny Chophouse and other retail shops.

3. A superb villa - very much "home from home." The pool is just fantastic, we got it heated for our stay and it was a perfect way to end each day.

4. The owner Beth was fabulous to deal with and indeed her management company lead by Barbara were excellent.

We had a holiday of a lifetime in Orlando and hope some day to come back again and stay in this luxurious villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your stay at our home and what made it work for you. I’m delighted that you had a great holiday and enjoyed the villa, it’s location and the pool, being in the water until sunset even in the winter months is a great advantage of a south facing pool. And thank you for your kind words about Barbara and myself, we work hard to make our guests stay everything they want. We look forward to your return and I wish you and your family many more fantastic holidays. Beth.

Great, spacious, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We have loved spending time here. Great facilities and a good size pool area for any rest days you might have. The villa is lovely and clean with comfortable sofas for relaxing on after a hard day at the parks.There is a Walmart just outside the complex which has everything you need for your stay as well fast food restaurants. The villa is about 30-40 mins away from the main parks depending on traffic on a very easy route. We would definitely return! Thank you Beth for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Beautiful Home - Fantastic Location! 5*!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this villa with my family for my 50th birthday, everything was perfect. The house was so spacious and clean and provided everything we needed during our stay. The pool area is beautiful, being south facing we had direct sunlight all day! The location was ideal to all parks and tourist spots. It was also within walking distance to Walmart, fast food eateries and shops. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking a long break in the Orlando area. I also have to mention that Beth was fabulous in helping us organise everything! Thanks for everything, we will definitely be back :) Genevieve, Ireland. x

Owner's Response: Happy belated birthday Genevieve, I wish I’d have known in advice I’d have arranged something for you. I am delighted that you found everything to be perfect, I’m very envious of you enjoying the sunshine on the deck from breakfast to bedtime, will it ever stop raining here in the UK ? And it’s great that you enjoyed our location and our home as much as we do, it was a pleasure to do what I could to help and I look forward to welcoming you back next time. Many thanks, Beth.

Great stay for spring break with children

  • 4 of 5

Our family with 2 boys and a grandmother had a great time at this condo. Everything you need is included. So nice to relax in the pool after a long day at the theme parks. Great location if you want to be between the main park and Legoland. Same neighborhood. Owner, Beth, has prompt communication and made the rental process a breeze. Would definitely consider staying again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of staying at our home, it’s greatly appreciated. I’m so pleased you found all that you needed at our home and all three generations of your family enjoyed their stay. It’s great that you could take advantage of our location and visit LegoLand and Disney / Universal and yes many of us find sometime by the pool is just what’s needed after all that excitement. It’s good to know that you found booking with us very straightforward and I would be delighted if you choose to return to stay with us again. Wishing you many more happy vacations, Beth.
