Why Southern Dunes?
There are not many estates where if you wish you can leave your car on the drive, you can. Within walking distance, mostly down tree lined drives, are many fast food outlets and restaurants, including the restaurant/bar at The Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club; Manny's the number 1 steakhouse on Trip Advisor plus a 24 hour Walmart at the entrance, great for that pint of milk as you return home after a busy day.
All this space and luxury comes at a very reasonable price as we only rent to smaller parties. We do offer discounts for parties of 4 or less, late bookings and extended stays.

Visited 19th April-5th May 2016. We have been to Florida 13 times and this was the best equipped villa we have stayed in. It was equipped like a home and not a rented property. The owners had thought of everything. The house was very quiet, very spacious and very very well equipped, it was also beautifully clean. The pool area was huge and got the sun all day (there was shade too). The pool was beautifully warm and very clean. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone it was an excellent experience. Thank you so much

Just arrived home following a fabulous stay at Park Place Villa, Southern Dunes. We have been to Florida three times now, but can honestly say this is the best villa to date. It is home from home with everything you need and more. We would certainly recommend to friends and family. Thanks again Janice. Manny's chophouse is a must by the way oh and egg city next door for brekky.
We know this community , but this villa is bordering on perfection. It is a well proportioned property and is generously kitted out. The laundry room is something else. I really like the clubhouse and a glass of wine(!),so an easy walk probably 5 minutes away is a real bonus. We hope to return next year.

I've been waiting for over 10 years to visit this Villa as I heard good things about it and it certainly didn't disappoint. The owners appreciate that the people visiting their villa are potentially having the holiday of a lifetime and have gone to great lengths to ensure everything is in place to achieve this. We had great difficulty getting the children out of the Villa even though we had days of fun filled activities booked and even when we were out they couldn't wait to get back and relax by the pool! Can't fault in any way and a very big thanks to the owners Tony and Janice for creating a real home from home.
My family and I have been travelling to Orlando since 1992 when we totally fell in love with the sunshine and excitement of the parks. We purchased our first home, ‘Park Place Villa’, in 2003 when our three boys were teenagers; they were excited with the pool and accessibility to the theme parks. We loved the facts we could leave the car on the drive and go for a drink, feeling safe walking along the tree lined roads. Last year we purchased ‘Forest Hills Cottage’ (F3209) a year after becoming grandparents.
We feel we know what a family needs to ensure they have a great vacation, and providing this is very important to us. We try hard to give guests a comfortable home in excellent decorative order which provides everything you need from a swimming pool to travel adapters.
JAN FORREST purchased this villa in 2003
Since 2003 we have owned and successfully rented this beautiful home and have many return guests. The villa is spectacular with high ceilings and curtains which cover two floors and set of with a designer ceiling fan. When we decided to purchase the villa, we knew it had to be in Southern Dunes because it is such a peaceful, tidy and beautifully landscaped golf development. We have visited many estates in the last 25 years, but we love the peace and the feeling of staying in the country offered by Southern Dunes, especially after a busy day at the parks. The roads are tree lined and houses are well cared for and very pretty. As you walk around the views of the golf course are picturesque and everyone is so friendly, as it is the perfect mixture of residential and rental homes.
This villa provides luxury, space and privacy. It is a stunning home which is well furnished, regularly updated, clean and cared for.
‘ We have just returned from a fantastic stay at this villa. It really was a home from home and our two year old loved it. The location on Southern Dunes was fab and we loved the permanent happy hour and food at the club house and that we could walk to both Walmart and Manny's steakhouse. It was literally 20 minutes to Disney and meant we could go for the morning to a park come back and chill for the late afternoon and return for the fireworks etc at night. The pool area was super and we enjoyed a few lovely meals sitting out overlooking the golf course. The villa had everything we needed, was extremely spacious and the added bonus of a super laundry room meaning we returned home with no washing to do!! Janice was so helpful in the lead up to our holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend it but more so we are just trying to work out when we can return. Thanks for making Fraser's first trip to Disney so memorable!! ’

Lovely villa and we had a fantastic time. A real home from home feel and the Christmas lights were a wonderful addition as we drove up to the house and during our stay. Our son loved the fabulous golf while the rest of us enjoyed the pool and other amenities. Many thanks for helping to make our stay so special and we hope we can visit again soon.

We loved this Villa, great location, beautifully decorated and furnished, very well equipped, and the owner Janice could not have been more helpful in all our communications prior to our stay. We would love to return here in the future, and we would highly recommend this home for a holiday let.

What a lovely villa and in a beautiful community. The villa had everything we needed for our 10 night stay and was so comfortable. It made packing so much easier knowing that we had towels, hair dryers etc waiting for us there. The pool was amazing and it was great having it attached to the property. The villa was easy to find and the directions provided were so helpful. I will definitely look to stay at this villa again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

It's always a gamble on line when trying to find a villa with a responsible owner and I must say I found that owner in Janice and the villa in Park Place.
For communication 10 out of 10

For surroundings 10/10
Ease of access to attractions and shops 10/10

Thanks so much Janice and Tony for sharing your wonderful villa with us for a month in March 2014. Janice was very responsive to any questions I had and so accommodating with the changes to our arrival date. The villa was so clean and had everything that we could possibly want. The pool area was so lovely and had sun all day. We really enjoyed meeting you both and look forward to many more stays at one of your villas.
