About Patrice Hamel

We are french canadian couple from Québec province, we use our house few weeks a year, we offer you the opportunity to rent this piece of dream the rest of the year.

Patrice Hamel purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Patrice Hamel chose Southern Dunes

We bought this house to have a sunny place to go on vacations all year long and to discover Florida with all it's possibilities. We wanted a house with a pool in a secured place. We discovered a quiet environment with beauties like crane birds on the fairway, nice trees, nice houses. There is also a lake near the house.

What makes this bungalow unique

We chose this house because the yard is bigger then the other houses and there`s privacy when we are by the pool. We also fell in love with the nicely decorated interior and the way the rooms are located.

Brilliant Christmas and new year stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean and inviting when we arrived and Rosie came to see us the next day who was lovely and able to sort out heating the pool which we all loved. We had a fantastic stay and had some great meals and drinks at the Tavern on the Dunes country club which was only a great 10 minute walk from the house. The villa was close to shops, diners and restaurants very handy. Overall a brilliant Christmas and new year would definitely stay here again. (we had a small problem with the heating of the pool which was sorted within an hour of our call)

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The home exceeded our expectations. I would agree with the other reviewers that the house was well outfitted, exceptionally well maintained, and was very peaceful. Not only was it convenient to the club house and local shopping, but was centrally located to many central Florida parks and attractions. We had a great time, and would not hesitate to return.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at this home. All the facilities you could want are available here. The house is completely outfitted (TV's in every bedroom plus the living room). Pool is well maintained, as are gardens. Kitchen equipment is tops, bbq is great. Quiet and peaceful. 3 minute drive (or 10 minute walk) to Club House at golf course, where I hooked up with lots of old friends and met new ones. I coming back again and again. The owners of this house make it very inviting for all to enjoy. Well Done !!

Past rental resident

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable. The house was everything one could expect. Furnished nicely, adaquate linens, kitchen equipped well. We had an medical emergency and found the area was had medical services right there. We were there for two months and would recommend this home to anyone. The Hamel's were most helpful in making the arrangements for our stay.
