3 Bedroom, 2 bath villa with screened-in pool, in a guard-gated, golf community
Find your "home away from home" in Southern Dunes! Our beautiful, comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bath, private pool home in a peaceful, quiet, gated community is sure to please. Come enjoy our recently renovated place!
Southern Dunes is only 20 minutes from Legoland, and less than 30 from Disney! In addition to that, all of the popular theme parks are a reasonable distance from our place including Universal, SeaWorld, and Bush Gardens. Most can be reached in well under an hour.
Our place has a fully screened-in pool area to enjoy after a day at the theme parks, a round of golf, or anytime! Cool off in the summer with a quick dip, or enjoyed it heated during the winter months (optional heating available at additional cost). The screened area allows you to lounge in the sun, or swim comfortably.
Our home has all you will need for a wonderful stay. We provide WIFI, flat screen TV's in every room, cable service, and even phone service with calling to the USA. The living room, has a 43" flat screen TV. We also provide a DVD player, with family oriented movies, for your enjoyment.
The villa is well suited for families. We have a high chair available, and pack and play, if needed, for little ones. The kids will love our "Mickey room" with twin beds. There is a nice master bedroom, with a queen size bed, 40" flat screen TV, and a full private bathroom. The third bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with a 32" flat screen TV.
Our newly remodeled kitchen, with granite counters and stainless appliances, provides the opportunity to "cook at home," if you would like. The open kitchen area is well stocked with basic cooking utensils, and has plenty of cups, plates, and dishes for dining. Just outside the gated community you will find a number of restaurants with a variety of dining options, if you prefer to eat out. You might check out the bar-b-que at Sonny's, take in breakfast at Denny's, or enjoy a meal at the popular Manny's restaurant just outside Southern Dunes. There are plenty of choices to make!
Whether you are seeking the excitement of the theme parks, the night life in Orlando, or just long for a peaceful, restful, getaway in a delightful community, you will find it all within reach at our place.
Linens are provided, along with bath towels, and pool towels. We even have a full size washer and dryer for your use.
Special features in the Southern Dunes community include the 18-hole championship golf course, a private neighborhood park, tennis courts, community pools, preservation areas, and a landscaped lake.
The beauty of it all is that, while being able to relax in a private home with a pool, in a beautiful community, you are only a short distance down I-4 from Disney's main gate and central Florida's many attractions. The best of both worlds! Looking for provisions? There is a Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, or Winn Dixie just outside the main entrance, and a Big Lots across the street. Just down the road at the intersection of I-4 there is a large shopping center with a Target, and other stores. Eagle Ridge Mall is about 20 minutes south on Highway 27.

Why Steve Schwanke chose Nord Department
We really enjoy Florida! Our family has vacationed in the Disney area for a number of years visiting the various theme parks, and relaxing in the warm weather. We wanted to have a place for the entire family to enjoy in an area that has so much to offer. When we found this open floor plan, three bedroom villa in beautiful Southern Dunes we felt like this was a great place for a "home away from home." The location is great! Southern Dunes is a wonderful community to live in, and yet it is conveniently located near I-4 and all that Orlando has available. The drive to Disney on the interstate is reasonable, and avoids some of the serious traffic congestion on Highway 192 by the parks. We think you will find it a perfect place for your family as well.
What makes this House unique
We love the quiet, peaceful, beautiful neighborhood and also appreciate the guard-gated security. The villa offers all the comforts of home with a nice pool for the family to enjoy. In addition to all this, the added benefit of a well-manicured, championship golf course, community pool, and tennis courts only add to the appeal! We are seeking to improve our place all the time and numerous renovations have been has been completed this year. Tile flooring and kitchen cabinets with granite counter tops we completed for the summer guests. Ceiling fans were added to the living areas and the home has been painted inside and out!

The pictures are exactly what you are getting. An updated and clean home that fits a family perfectly. My youngest son especially loved the Mickey Mouse room and nightlight. We even had to order him one because he loved it so much. It was so nice to let our kids swim while we made each night. I was concerned about how we would be treated by the residents of the community and I can tell you the neighbors were very friendly. Should we return the area, I would not hesitate to book this house again.
Great property, would stay again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay while in Orlando. Was the perfect place to relax and just unwind with family. I highly recommend to anyone looking to vacation in the area and would not hesitate to stay there again next time I am in Florida! Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful place!
Would rent again in a heartbeat
Really great property with everything you need to have a relaxing vacation. Would not hesitate one second to rent this property the next time we are in the Orlando area. No issues whatsoever. Centrally located to great attractions. 5+ stars all the way.
Happy with the accommodations, throughly enjoyed our stay!
We are completely enjoying our stay at your house here in Haines City. Your accommodations suit us to a tee. We have had grandchildren down for a few days on the front end of our vacation and some on the tail end. I was able to golf with family numerous times which was good. We loved your house and would certainly be interested in staying again next year.
Lovely Home. Convenient and Comfortable.
My husband and I spent 5 weeks in this lovely home. It was clean, comfortable and well stocked with all the necessities for a pleasant stay. Enjoyed the pool. It is conveniently located to shopping with several choices- Walmart, Aldi's, Winn Dixie, and Publix. Several decent restaurants close by...Manny's and Egg City were good. It is close to many Central Florida Lakes where we enjoyed fishing and kayaking. Traffic was considerably better than surrounding locations, easy to access Interstate, yet also also easy to travel less popular roads which is usually our preference. Gated community increased security- guards were polite and accommodating. Super nice friendly neighbors. Neighbors are very close but community was very quiet. Golf course appeared very well maintained- we do not play so cannot comment further. Our only complaint was the limited parking. There was adequate room for our vehicle in the driveway but when friends and family visited the street parking was quite a challenge. Owner was quickly responsive to any request or question. Would certainly recommend this property without hesitation. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!
I loved the home its was a home away from home.
This is a great thing to be part of. The places are great and they make you feel welcome. A very peaceful atmosphere. I loved it and can't wait to plan another trip thank you all.
