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.

Stunning villa which far exceeded our expectations! Fab place for a family holiday to Orlando.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the Villa. So spacious for our extended family of 6. Lovely gated complex, the villa had oodles of space and its own private pool. As we visited over Christmas, Andy and Debbie had even left us a Christmas tree!

We drove most days to Disney or Universal parks, (Disney was my favourite, especially at night) but it was lovely to come back to our own space. The villa was convenient for all the Orlando parks. We also visited NASA Kennedy Space Centre which was a great day out plus for a break from the parks I'd also recommend Wild Willy's Airboat safari - we saw alligators including babies, a Bald Eagle, turtles and many birds In the wetland setting.

Manny's Chop House was a great place to eat out for an authentic American Diner. We also loved Disney Springs for shopping, eating and the atmosphere.

Thoroughly recommended - a holiday we won't forget :-)

Lovely villa in quiet gated community

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our 10 day stay at Southern Dunes in January 2018. The house is clean, and well equipped. There is a Walmart just outside the gated community, which is handy for shopping. The house comes with bicycles, and golf clubs, and my wife and I enjoyed a round of golf at the course within the development, while our teenage daughter and her friend, enjoyed the bicycles, and playing with the X-Box.

The only nit-pick I would have is that the pool isn't as private as it looks in the pictures, as the villa backs onto a cul-de-sac, but the weather didn't cooperate anyway, and we were only able to use the pool one day of our stay.

Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely review - so glad you enjoyed your stay. The very quiet cul de sac to the right can be seen but we appreciate your feedback and have planted some palm trees across the rear of the pool to improve the view and add to the privacy. Glad you were able to enjoy the golf course & bicycles & the Walmart is definitely a bonus being so close.

Highly recommend this fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed and will definitely be back!!!

We have been coming to Florida for many years renting villas on numerous estates but the moment we drove into Southern Dunes and arrived at The Palms we were completely bowled over. By far the best we've seen.

Spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything and more! Thoroughly enjoyed taking the pushbikes out and highly recommend the clubhouse Sunday buffet breakfast.

From initial enquiry to arriving Andy & Debbie were really informative & friendly.

Highly recommend this villa!

Perfect 2 week stay in an amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the palms for two weeks in July 17 and had an fab two weeks.

The booking process from start to finish was easy. The owner Andy was always very quick too respond to any questions and was very helpful

The villa itself was very clean and really well presented. it was very spacious and had

everything you needed and more besides.

The pool was a great to to come back to after a day out or even for a full day chilling in the sun.

The villa was in a great location in a secure gated golf complex about 30 mins from the parks and near to supermarkets,food outlets and a couple of restaurants. Highly recommend Mannys chophouse - get an uber it costs about $15 dollars return. we also got an uber to discovery cove one day -well we had to take advantage of the unlimited wine and beer! and that was about $50 return. worth it if you fancy a day of the driving and a day on the beer!

Would highly recommend this villa and would definitely stay again.
