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.

How much?

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.

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

Why JAN FORREST chose Davenport

Since 2003 we have owned and successfully rented this beautiful home and the majority of our booking are 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.

What makes this villa unique

This villa provides luxury, space and privacy with your own south facing pool. It is a stunning home which is well furnished, regularly updated, clean and cared for. The perfect home and community in which to enjoy the Floridian lifestyle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

‘ 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

Further Details:

Southern Dunes has 24 hour security gated access and regular estate patrols. During your stay you will have access to various large swimming pools, a gym, children’s play area and tennis courts. Great news… at Southern Dunes you can leave the car on the drive as many bars, restaurants (including Manny’s Chop House) fast food outlets and stores are within walking distance. This includes a super Walmart and Winn Dixie which are at the entrance to Southern Dunes, perfect for that bottle of wine you need after a long, exciting day at the parks.
