Southern Dunes is an award PGA championship golf course ranked number 6 in Florida in Golf Digest 2007 - 2008.

A short four minute walk takes you to one of the 3 quiet community pools large enough for a good cool down swim, complete with chairs and loungers, you often have it to yourselves as it is for the use of our road only.

Sorry no pets. We have made this a home from home with original artwork and comfortable furniture, not just a rental. We live there three months of the year so it is really geared up as a home. Many extra features (thoughtful items like hairdryers, cool box, pool/beach towels, pool toys and beach chairs). We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

About Gillian Walker

After holidaying in Florida for years and coming up to retirement anticipating a longer vacation we decided to buy our own place. With our experience of renting we knew what holidaymakers appreciate and enjoyed making our house a welcoming home.

Gillian Walker purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Gillian Walker chose Davenport

The central location set in the real Florida appealed and the golf course house with its fabulous view just knocked us out. There is plenty to do in the area and lovely friendly neighbours.

What makes this townhome unique

This is a beautiful house and being an artist I have enjoyed painting pictures to hang on all those blank walls. We love sitting out in the Florida room for breakfast or reading a book in the rocker.

Each time we go we do more to our home to make it as comfortable and welcoming as possible, we love having guests who seem to appreciate all we do to make it what it is - fabulous!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs. Walker: we had a wonderful vacation at your beautiful home, we would love to return next year, if the dates would be open .I will be certain to contact you in the future. I would recommend your home to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in a picture perfect setting. Wonderful accommodation's and clean environment, beautiful artwork with all the amenities.The view of the 4th green in the morning, while drinking coffee on your screened patio, will be our most favorite memory. The golf course was beautiful along with being brutal with all the Hugh sand bunkers. We had a delightful time.

average rating of 4.894737 based on 25 reviews

My family's overall stay was fabulous!!! The town house was lovely and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

I had the best sleep, because the beds were so comfortable. Everything we needed from extra towels and wash cloths were at the touch of our fingers. The house is extremely clean and has plenty of space to eat. We really enjoyed our stay and are planning to stay here again on future trips.

Great Property for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the property. My wife and I took our 4 kids to Disney for Christmas this past year. The condo was better then we expected. It was the ideal place to come back to every night. It provided us with a quiet place to rest outside of Walt Disney World. The kitchen was perfect for dinner on the nights we came back a little early. The owners were great, staying in contact and working with us through email the entire time leading up to our visit. The Condo offers more amenities then we could use in our time there.

I would recommend this property to anyone. My wife and I plan to take our family there again in the future.

A beautiful time at a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

One of the first things to hit you is the guard house that is manned 24- 7. I felt so much safer and less worry than staying at a motel . I would always worry about the rental car. The interior is very well stocked for your stay and is just beautiful. We visited all the parks and they are all about 30 minutes or less away. Everything went very smooth. And mom and dad will love the Heart shaped tub. Thank you for a great stay at a great price.

Beautiful Home with Lovely Atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

This home is a wonderful place to dwell in during your stay. Not only is it in a prime location for retail, restaurants, recreation, etc. Its situated in a quiet neighborhood. Which is perfect for a little rest & relaxation. Inside the home is everything you'll need for your duration. The highlights of the home however have to be it's beautiful bathrooms with amazing water pressure in the showers!

Second to that, comes the gorgeous artwork of the Owner. It really puts a personal touch on the home & they're quite the sight to see. My family of 3 enjoyed all of our time here for the week we visited. The only complaint I have with the home is the lack of a television inside the child's room. Often after returning home late in the evening from a full day of theme park activities, the Mrs. & I would sleep in (hey its vacation) just a little. Our Child however, would be up early & looking to watch some of his favorite shows.

There are two televisions inside the home with one being in the master bedroom & the other one downstairs. Our child was always uncomfortable going downstairs alone in a new home. Especially at 6:30am when he would be waking up. Regardless, we enjoyed the home quite a bit. Honestly, the TV situation didn't matter all that much & the Owners are simply fantastic. You can't go wrong booking this residence.

Car: necessary

We loved the central location close to the real Florida with it's many nature reserves and being so near to the amusement parks was a bonus. The setting of Southern Dunes Golf & County Club was particularly appealing and being in Haines City with it's small town feel. We weren't disappointed we have lovely neighbours up and down our road - everyone is so friendly and welcoming. They really make you feel part of the community.

With both east and west coast beaches being just over an hour away you have a great choice. Just across the road from the clubhouse means you can drive your cart to pick up your clubs and you never miss a tee off time. The clubhouse restaurant/bar is great for Friday or Saturday nights and the Sunday buffet is well worth sampling. Across the 27 is Manny's which is quite famous in the area and an experience our guests enjoy - but ring ahead it is always busy with great atmosphere, happy hour 4 - 7. With our agents close by our guests have added security.

Other Activities: We love visiting all the state parks in the area plus Bok Sanctuary for their gardens. Circle B Bar Reserve a drive away is well worth a visit for its nature and peacefulness.

Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club is centrally situated. There are plenty of shopping opportunities even the men get carried away.

A trip to Manny's Chop House just across the road is an experience we recommend to all our guests but ring ahead for a time, the food is fantasic, good value and the atmosphere is amazing.

Golf: Set in the famous 24 hour secure Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club. Southern Dunes is an award winning PGA championship golf course ranked number 6 in Florida in Golf Digest 2007 - 2008.
