Our property is located in beautiful Southern Dunes. We are conveniently located just 20 mins from Disney World and Legoland and 30 mins from Universal Studios and Seaworld. After a wonderful round of golf at Southern Dunes Country Club, ranked #6 in Golf Digest's 'Best Courses in the State' of Florida; relax by the private pool side to the setting sun.
All of the rooms have been outfitted with new ceiling fans and every room has an LCD HD TV mounted on the wall with cable for your comfort. The Great Room has a lovely view of the pool. The house is also equipped with WIFI and an HD DVR.
The kitchen is well appointed and updated for those who want to cook or grill. The garage has been outfitted as a 'game room', complete with a basketball net, dart board, ping pong table, air hockey/mini pool table, 2 mountain bikes and a radio for your leisure. The washer/dryer are located in the garage.
Southern Dunes is a 24-Hr Guarded/Gated Community. There is a Super Walmart right outside the gate and lots of restaurants/fast food. There is a Publix Grocery store and plenty of shopping within a few miles.
So come, relax and enjoy a vacation at our Southern Dunes Home!
We have been coming to the Disney Area for 30 Years and finally decided that we wanted a rental/vacation house. If you have any questions about the Disney Area we can definitely assist.

I was really impressed with the house my family and i felt at home for our 5 day stay and we enojoyed it to the fullest thank you erik !
This was our first long stay vacation and we loved our stay.
From the minute we walked into the house we were very comfortable.
The house was clean and well stocked. We had family and friends join us, everyone enjoyed their stay.
We enjoyed the Southern Dunes community. Loved our morning and evening walks. My husband enjoyed the golf course and we were spoiled by the pool.
Orlando, Lakeland, Tampa were very easy drives.
Looking forward to returning to Southern Dunes again next year.
My sister and I rented the house for one last sister vacay before she and her new spouse (army) move to Texas and start their married life together. We spent 9 or 10 days there. The house was very clean. The first thing I do when I get to a rental is wipe everything down with Lysol wipes, all the wipes came away clean. The house was well appointed, though you will need to furnish your own pots/pans (there was a clear casserole dish in the oven that we put to good use). The commute to Disney took about 30+ min in the morning and about 45 min in the afternoon. The commute to Universal took about 45 min in the morning and about an hour in the afternoon. We were there over the Dec/Jan holidays and it was extremely crowded in the parks. There were also always multiple accidents on Hwy 4, coming and going - contributing to the longer than anticipated commute time.
We opted to have the pool heated and it was worth every penny. I now have a private heated pool on the top of my wish list for my next home. It was the most relaxing part of the entire vacation.
The beds were very comfortable. The showers had excellent water pressure. The kitchen appliances worked. The living room couches were comfortable. There is cable and a dvd player (note, not a bluray player). There were plenty of dishes/glasses/wine glasses. They had small kitchen items such as wine opener, can opener, measuring spoons, etc. The freezer has an ice maker. We enjoyed the games in the garage (though we couldn't find the darts for the dart board). PLENTY of stores in a 5 mile radius for things forgotten or dining out.
You will need to bring your own pool floats. There was a child's paddle board in the garage we took turns using to lazily float with.
The only negative about the house regarded the window coverings in the two master bedrooms. The one in the front of the house has blinds that let in light. No curtains. It made it hard for my sister to fall asleep and woke her up before she was ready. The master in the back of the house has a very thin curtain on the sliding glass door. We found that you can see right through it at night. Also, there wasn't enough fabric to cover the glass without gaps. I ended up taping the curtains to the walls and hanging a colored sheet over the rod to double up coverage. As a former police officer having dealt with numerous peeping-tom situations I'm hyper aware of such vulnerabilities. That being said. It is an extremely safe neighborhood.
We loved staying at this house. It is a great central location. The house had everything we needed, 4 bedrooms, 3 bath, pool, game room and large living area. My son was super excited to find a Lego set in the living room plus all of the toys in the garage. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Very close to Orlando and Legoland. We will definitely stay there again!!
Need we say more other than the title. Saved us some money bc kids were content with pool and gameroom. We didnt go out to any parks for 2 days! Very clean and quiet! Mini library of mostly fiction books was great also. Get it while its available- highly recommend!
My wife and two sons met another family of friends who we often travel with in the summer. The kids had a great time with the pool and the adults enjoyed relaxing with coffee next to the pool in the morning.
We spent some time in Orlando and at LEGOLAND in nearby Winter Haven. The location of the house was great for this and also it was nice it was located so close to shopping and other food. The community is quiet and gated, which makes us feel comfortable as well.
Erik was great at communicating and made this, our first VRBO stay, a great experience. His house is a great value and you'll enjoy your experience.
