About Angie Johnston

Our families are from Ontario, Canada (Cambridge and Burlington) and we have been coming to Florida to vacation for many years. We have children ranging in ages from 5 - 21, who are avid golfers, theme park thrill seekers, beach bums and shopping junkies.

Angie Johnston purchased this villa in 2013

Why Angie Johnston chose Davenport

Our family discovered this awesome Southern Dunes location in 2011 on VRBO and decided we wanted to be a part of it. We love everything about the location, it is central to everything, safe, beautiful, full of things to do. We also have other family spending winters nearby so it keeps our family close together.

✨ Great Holiday Villa 😎🇺🇸☀️

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this lovely property. Great base for the Orlando area and not far from Tampa and Clearwater either. Nice pool and view over the golf course. No complaints 😊

Best experience with rental homes in Florida!!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews, but this property deserves it. My wife was impressed with the cleanliness of Angie's vacation home. We have rented many homes in Florida over the years and none have come close to this property. Angie was quick to respond to all of our inquiries. the bed was comfortable [very important after spending all day at the parks], the property had everything you need. We are definitely looking forward to coming back next time! We have found our home away from home!

We had such a wonderful time in the home. The decoration was beautiful and it was fully equipt with everything a home needs. Angie is a great person to rent from as she fixes any problem immediately if any. She had a guest book and it had wonderful reviews we agree with every single one. The home has near by Stores. Rent this home it's the best.

Beautiful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Angie's house! We had four small boys and they just pretty much just wanted to hang in the house the whole time. We had a small misunderstanding at our arrival, but Angie answered to us right away and everything was taken care off. The house itself has everything you need, very cozy and family friendly. The kitchen was fully stocked, and there was also plenty of towels and linens. Overall I would definitely love to stay again at the house. Thanks for everything!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home from a fantastic 2 week stay in Angie's villa

This is our 6th stay on southern dunes and can't fault it, would highly recommend anyone unsure of where to stay

The villa was comfortable,clean and just what we wanted with ample space

It really did feel like our home and was very sad to leave

It's south facing pool is s must and is located in my opinion on one of the best parts of the complex

Angie has been very helpful throughout and was very grateful for our late check out on our last day

We will definately be returning
