We enjoy our holidays in Florida and have renovated this villa so that we can share it with our families and guests. We want everyone to enjoy this home from home whilst on vacation.
Dunes Property Management purchased this villa in 2012
People buy property all over the world and although this villa is 8,000 away from the Scotland, it is the ideal home from home. The journey is not too arduous, in fact from Newcastle, England we can be in our villa in 10 hours travel time from home, just need to add the time at the airports. A place that we can bring the family, to the ideal vacation location; Disney and other world renowned facilities, golf, gulf and Atlantic seaside resorts and much much more, whilst resting in the fantastic facilities of this Floridian villa. We don't want to be greedy, keeping it for ourselves, but want you to share before we come again.
We have been visiting the USA for 10 years and Florida a number of times. Experience and adventure has shown this area and in particular Southern Dunes to be the ideal vacation location. Although situated within the security controlled complex of Southern Dunes, the villa has an independent alarm and security system. For our friends from the USA this holiday villa is home from home, with all the comforts in a great part of Florida.
Thank you for your help with our holiday. We had a great time and the replacement villa you provided was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute. We hope you found the villa in the way you gave it to us clean and tidy.
Once again many thanks for the help and we wish you well, hopefully we will holiday again and would have no problem with recommending yourselves and the service you provide and Kokomo Loop/Southern Dunes,
The villa had everything we needed. Service was excellent, had problem with WiFi, we call for assistance and it was resolved, problem with TV and cable and was resolved within 15 minutes, quick response by Ian & Julia, ac was very good, rooms were clean, quiet area, their is a lot off shops, restaurants, Walgreens, Walmart , CVS an everything You need in the area and some within walking distance. Driving to the parks was a little bit far, about 30 minutes, knowing that after a long day in the park and returning to a home was the drive worth it, the feeling to go back to a home, sit on a couch, relax, no wait time to take a shower, have a cup of Thea, coffee or a glass of wine and watching TV/Cable. Would recommend this property to friends or relatives.
Well maintained property, very spacious especially with 4 women in the house, plenty of Bathrooms. The layout was good having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom . Was well equipped and the TV great. Pool table and darts board in garage.
When we arrived the storm had caused a problem with the water in the pool, no problem phoned maintenance and the pool was cleaned same day.
Ideal location for the Airport, shops and restaurants. Manny's Chop House was great, went a few times also went to Olive Garden. Great value plus you get to take home what you cannot eat.
Most attractions approx 30mins away, petrol cheap and we soon got used to driving. It was nice to chill out round the pool.
Overall great house, great location, would go again. Unfortunately Golf course closed due to maintenance but would certainly recommend.
We were sceptical at first but this property was above expectations. The gated community was a comfort. Ian and Julia were great to deal with, all of our concerns and problems were addressed immediately. I played the golf course 6 times and it was fantastic. The. TV remotes took some getting used to but minor problem. The dining area was small for more than 4 people , a BBQ OR grill had to be rented which was a hassle. The grill was small and not enough BTUS. NOT owners fault. We would definitely rent this property again. We were centrally located to parks, Orlando, etc. So was great for commuting. It was within walking distance to grocerys Walmart or other dining establishments. We did a lot of walking around southern dunes area and everyone was friendly. Hopefully we will be able to rent this property again next winter.
This was a fantastic place to stay, the house is very well appointed, spacious, fantastic setting with a nice pool with sunshine all day. There is a fantastic golf course on your doorstep with a very friendly club house. There are plenty of other golf courses, shopping outlets in Orlando were easy to get to, fantastic bargains too. Of course the theme parks are in close proximity so always something for families. I cannot recommend this place enough, just brilliant.
When we booked this home, it seemed too good to be true. The pictures online showed a clean, classy and cozy home with all the amenities you could ask for, including and especially the private pool. When we arrived, we were blown away. Everything was wonderful! The kitchen was fully appointed with appliances, pots and pans, silverwear, glasswear, dishes. The bedrooms were spacious and welcoming. The bathrooms were sparkling. We enjoyed our stay so very much! Orlando was HOT and crowded. Once we traveled the 30-45 mins 'home' each evening, we found affordable and delicious dining near by. And if we needed groceries or supplies, we stopped at the nearby Publix, Winn Dixie or Walmart. The home is close to so much, but quiet and secluded because of it being a gated golf community. Above all, we enjoyed relaxing pool side at the end of a busy day. For our family, this home was the best part of our vacation. We each had our own space here, but we also had a good time feeling right at home together.
I am not one for writing reviews but this place was absolutely fantastic it would do a disservice not to. My partner and I decided on the location because we wanted to be close enough to the Theme Parks but far enough away to escape the crowds in the evening. This place was perfect for that. Access to the main parks was on major roads and on average the journey time was 25 minutes. After marching around the parks all day it was reassuring to know that we were only 25 minutes from the tranquil atmosphere of both the golf resort and the villa. It was also close enough to the amazing beach at St Petes to make it worth the drive out there.
The villa itself was located on a golf resort which was of a very high standard. The grounds were well kept and the golf course did not interfere with the enjoment of the property at all. There were lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance to choose from including Manny’s which did the best Filet Mignon I have ever had, at a reasonable price. And when we wanted to make use of the fully modernised kitchen there was a Walmart and Winn Dixie within walking distance as well.
Inside the villa we found that the photos did not do the accommodation justice as it looked even better. It was literally like a home from home with all the mod cons and everything you would need. There was the added benefit of having surround sound TV screen in the living room and cable TV to all the bedrooms. Free WIFI and air con throughout. When we were not in the parks we found that the pool area had the sun all day and apart from the occasional squirrel we were never disturbed. The pool area was lovely too and If the sun got too much we could make use of the games room which was an added bonus.
The bedrooms were large and spacious and the beds were very comfortable. I am a light sleeper but had no trouble sleeping here. All the rooms were beautifully presented, spacious and decorated to a high spec which made our stay all the more pleasurable. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who loves being on vacation with the comforts of home.
