About Jo Fletcher

We live in England with our two children and our dog, Toby. After many enjoyable holidays in Florida we decided to take the plunge and buy our own villa.

We've owned our villa since 2012 and have had some fantastic comments from our guests, about both the villa and our service. All of them agree that the villa is in a fantastic location, is extremely clean and very comfortable.

We were delighted to have found our villa on Mariner Cay Drive as it has everything we want in a great holiday. Our only problem is we can't spend all our time there! We do try and go as often as possible and that allows us to ensure the villa maintains its high standard.

We've loved our experience over the last few years and we hope to continue helping to make our guest's holidays special.

Jo Fletcher purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jo Fletcher chose Southern Dunes

We love Southern Dunes because it is a great base to explore all the Orlando has to offer. The golf is fab and affordable and we love the tennis courts. Numerous other golf courses are a very short drive away.

Disney and the other theme parks are a short drive away. We are probably the closest rental community to the new Legoland theme and water parks.

The beaches of the Gulf and Atlantic coast are within easy reach as are many other attractions.

What makes this villa unique

Having visited Florida many times before we were aware that some villas were quite isolated. However this is not the case on Southern Dunes where we enjoy walking to local shops and restaurants. A night out at nearby Mannys is a must, especially if you happen to be there for Happy Hour!

The pool gets the sunshine all day so a couple of pool days relaxing away from the crowds is essential. As is a short walk to the Southern Dunes club house where drinks and meals can be enjoyed.

We have a full sized table tennis table and tennis equipment for use at the nearby courts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We will undoubtedly return to Orlando in the next couple of years and would love to stay at the villa again. I will also recommend your villa to friends and family.

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed your villa and we would certainly come to you in future.

Hi Joanne, got back this morning, just wanted to say we enjoyed our stay at the villa, it was very nice in a good location. would defo use again. Will certainly recommend to friends / colleagues.

Beautiful, spotless villa. So happy with it

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Halloween period in the Villa. It was very well presented and spotlessly clean. The owners were so helpful during our stay. The pool was perfect and the whole experience made our Florida holiday that extra bit special. I’d have no hesitation in staying in this villa or recommending it to anyone else. Big Thanks to Jo and Neil

First class accommodation with great access to parks

  • 5 of 5

Superb location on a secure and beautiful estate. The villa was exceptionally clean and well maintained and absolutely no negative points at all. The proximity of supermarkets and eating establishments within walking distance was so handy - particularly after a busy day at the theme parks.

Our Second stay.....

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second stay in this villa and are looking to book again as soon as possible. It's owners go out of their way to give you the perfect holiday. All of this and the fact that Walmart and many restaurants are within walking distance make it an ideal place. It's a short easy drive to all the parks or just say by the pool. Florida has much to offer apart from the parks and Southern Dunes is central to it all.

Another perfect visit to this villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time at Neil & Jo's villa and it was as perfect as we remembered, in fact even more so with new carpets and a very comfy new bed! We were lucky enough to have hot weather so spent nearly all of our time at the villa (rather than exploring) sunbathing by the gorgeous pool as it was so peaceful and relaxing. As well as all the shops and restaurants within walking distance we also made good use of the clubhouse for meals and especially enjoyed Trivia Night! It's great not to have to take the car everywhere as we have had to do in other Orlando villas. We will definitely be returning!

Great base for golfing or the parks.

  • 5 of 5

The property has all the comforts and needs for a self catering holiday.

Our friends who had rented another property on the estate were envious of the décor and furnishings. We would have no hesitancy in recommending the house to friends and family.

Further Details:

Within a short walk from Southern Dunes are a large number of restaurants, bars and shops. Manny's Chophouse is well worth a visit, be warned people come from miles around to eat here so make sure you book or arrive early. They have lots of offers such as happy hour and 2 for 1 deals. The food is always excellent and the restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere. There are many more restaurants in the area and also fast food outlets.

Just down the road is the Posner Centre with arguably the largest sports store I have ever seen, Dicks. Also at Posner is a new IMAX cinema. There are many more shops, including Target, and restaurants to be found here.
