About Andy & Debbie Drain

Having visited Florida many, many times and staying in a number of villas on various sites, when we first drove into Southern Dunes we instantly fell in love with the outstanding community and all it had to offer.

We were so taken by it that we bought our own "piece of paradise" and invite you to enjoy all it has to offer too.

Andy & Debbie Drain purchased this villa in 2015

Lovely villa and stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Palms in May and it made our holiday one of the best yet. From booking to receiving information pack to getting to the villa, everything was very straight forward. Andy and Debbie were very quick to respond to any queries if we had any.

We have stayed at Southern Dunes numerous times and are very familiar with the site. Walmart and all other shops/restaurants/take aways are all very useful to have close by. The location of the villa is perfect as you can escape the hustle and bustle of theme parks and come back to the peaceful villa.

The villa was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was there and more. The pool was lovely after a long day at the theme parks. We have rented many villas and Southern Dunes and this has been one of the best. Perfect location, ease of booking and cleaniness. I would recommend anyone to stay here as it made our holiday a memorable one.

Thank you to Andy and Debbie and we will back.

great golf or disney located villa

  • 4 of 5

Excellent property on excellent grounds.I stayed in Mallery circle a few years ago so had an idea of the quality villas and this one didnt disappoint.

I will be booking again for next year similar dates as a golf holiday as great location for lots of courses.

I marked it down 1 star only for two reasons,there is no BBQ and had to hire one which $55 per week for a broken or poor quality one,would be better if one provided and just paid for gas exchange and other reason was a little too much chlorine in pool

I would and have recommended to any who wants a family holiday in a great location

Happy holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa is immaculate and in a stunning location. Equipped with everything that you could possibly need, from the fun on the four bikes which are provided, to the golf clubs and pool tables. The most enjoyable lazy hours where spent in and around the stunning heated swimming pool. Great access to all the Disney parks and near by attractions. With the Walmart located just outside the gated entrance made it easy for us to top up on supplies. Plenty of near by restaurants and eatery's which made it great for us to grab a bite to eat and the end of a busy day. We also enjoyed a yummy breakfast at the golf club house which we where welcome to use as a holiday resident. Thank you Andy and Debbie for letting us share your villa. We will be back!!!
