About Maureen Anthony

We are recently retired ex teachers with 3 grown up sons and 2 gorgeous grandchildren who love our home from home and of course the Disney Magic. We aim to spend the next phase of our lives exploring more of this great planet of ours and playing lots and lots of golf!

Maureen Anthony purchased this villa in 2014

Why Maureen Anthony chose Southern Dunes

After spending time in the area and viewing numerous properties we decided upon this villa to be our home away from home for the following reasons;

Light, airy accommodation.

South facing pool deck.

Safe gated well established community with tennis courts, childrens play areas.

Top rated public golf course

overlooks 4th fairway so greater sense of privacy

Great local amenities at the entrance to the community, within walking distance

within 25 mins to Disney

Equidistant from the beautiful beaches on the gulf and Atlantic coasts

What makes this villa unique

The villa's position, the golf, the facilities within walking distance and all in the great Florida sunshine. It is just over an hour to either the beautiful calm Gulf Coast or the wilder eastern Atlantic Coast. Orlando is home to many great sporting teams at a whole variety of different levels, from the Orlando Magic, UCF Knights Football and Orlando City Lions. Further exploration allows the more adventurous to participate in cycling, hiking and canoeing in the many local State Parks.

Nice home with pool, great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous and in a good location. We visited over the Christmas holidays, so traffic in the Orlando area is terrible. It was nice to have our home to escape to for our days by the pool! The house is clean and comfortable. Great location for all our activities. We'd definitely recommend it.

Marvellous home for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house in the middle of a lovely golf course even though I don't play. Haines City is a great location for visiting Florida, we did the Everglades and Cape Canaveral plus lots more. Then coming back to this home for relaxing on the sunny patio and using the super poll. Beds and furnishings very comfortable, wish we had their cleaners!!

This property is better than described and has sun on the terrace at the back most of the day. Ideal.

Great villa in fab location

  • 4 of 5

Large, clean villa with everything you need for a family holiday. Very well equipped and close to shops and restaurants.

A bit of a drive to the parks but having stayed on Southern Dunes before we knew this before we arrived.

Pool warm and clean and was cleaned once during our stay.

Would definitely return to this villa.

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in the villa and it was wonderful! It is beautifully decorated and has everything and more for an enjoyable vacation. The kitchen has every appliance and utensil you need. The beds are very comfortable and the entire home is very clean. We entertained friends from the area and had plenty of room to host a dinner for eight. We enjoyed the pool and the lanai which faces south and offers sun and warmth all day long. It is very close to amenities - Walmart is right in front of Southern Dunes and there are many excellent restaurants in the immediate area. It's only about a 25 minute drive to Disney World or Universal. We were very fortunate to meet the owners who are very accommodating and pleasant. It was a real pleasure to meet them. The management company personnel were very courteous and helpful when we called with questions. We were sorry to leave after one week. Hopefully we might be able to rent this same villa for longer next year.
