Southern Dunes Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10




Don't delay! Prime dates are hard to get in this highly sought after house. These prime dates usually fill 4 to 6 months in advance. Don't wait!

If you are looking for a place to call home during your vacation this one has it all.

A private pool (resurfaced and renovated in July 2015) with no rear neighbors and the decks of the houses on either side cannot be seen from our pool deck. It is one of the most private pools in Southern Dunes. The solar heating makes sure the water is perfect for most of the year. Electric heat is available and recommended for the cooler months. The attached hot tub is a perfect way to end your day and unwind.

The home features 2200 sq feet of living space with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 3 upstairs. The Master bedroom comes with a King size bed, 32 inch TV and an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower and tub. From this room you can walk directly out onto the pool deck and slip into the hot tub. The front bedroom has a Queen size bed with easy access across the hall to the bathroom that includes a walk-in shower. Bedroom #3 is upstairs and overlooks the golf course and pool. It includes a Queen bed and 32 inch TV. The other two bedrooms on the upper floor have 2 single beds and TVs in each. All three rooms share a bathroom that has a shower and tub.

We have furnished the pool area as an extra outside living room. There is a dining table with 4 chairs and lots of luxury loungers and armchairs. A grill is available for you if you would like to enjoy some outdoor cooking. A safety fence has been added to protect the little ones. You will be looking over the golf course and directly at the 18th Tee Box.

During the day the sun is on the pool from early morning until late afternoon. It is perfect for sunbathing. If you need to escape the sun yet want to stay outside there is a large covered area steps from the pool.

During the evening the privacy of the pool and hot tub really stand out. No rear neighbors means there are no lights from other homes blocking your view of the night sky and the stars.

The Living Room has 2 full sized sofas and one side chair for comfortable seating for you and your guests. Available with the 46 inch TV is a DVD player, Wii, Netflix and Ipod speakers.

There is a separate dining room with seating for 6.

The fully-equipped kitchen with seating for 4 and stainless steel appliances and separate laundry room make life that much more pleasant when you have to make the effort to cook or do some laundry.

There is unlimited high-speed Internet access for your laptop or other personal devices.

You can make free local and long distance phone calls (Canada and US) from the house phone.

The clubhouse is only a 5 minute walk where you can enjoy an excellent restaurant & bar. The golf course is one of the finest and most affordable in Florida. There are at least 10 other courses nearby for the golfer in the family.

This is a luxury privately owned vacation home, near the attractions of Disney and Orlando but away from the hectic rush of Kissimmee. It is perfect for those who want a quiet peaceful vacation. All the furnishings and equipment are top quality.

Keywords: Golf, Pool, wifi, BBQ grill, Universal, Disney, LEGOLAND.

About Paul or Nancy Hillman

We rented several homes in Southern Dunes over the years and finally decided that it was time to buy our dream home. We hope you like it.

Paul or Nancy Hillman purchased this villa in 2011

Why Paul or Nancy Hillman chose Davenport

Over the past 20 years we have stayed all over the state of Florida and have not found a place where we are as comfortable as we are when we stay at Southern Dunes. The secure community, excellent golf course and close proximity to the theme parks add up to making this an excellent location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been an ideal "holiday home" for our family holiday. The golf, the pool the convenience all assisted to make our stay here enjoyable and memorable. All comfort catered for. We have swum with dolphins, visited alligators, said Hi to Mickey and friends and generally had a ball.

The safety and security of Southern Dunes ensured we were able to relax when we returned to the nest.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at this property. It was an excellent time and everything we needed was at this house. The pool area was great and privacy was perfect. Will book again my next trip down.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our group. Southern Dunes has a first class golf course. Great location but be prepared to stock everything for your stay.

That's no big deal with Wal-Mart at the end of the block. Manny's is a great place for dinner and happy hour!

Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great experience and were very pleased with the house and all it had to offer. The neighborhood felt very safe and it was very quiet and peaceful. Our negatives were the lack of ceiling fans upstairs, since the thermostat is untouchable. It was hotter upstairs and uncomfortable to some of our family. Either put in fans or let the renter have the freedom to control the thermostat. Also, the ceiling fan in the living room only worked on low and was very dirty. I've never stayed in a house (and we've rented many) that did not have a paper towel holder or paper towels available. That was weird, but minor. We would consider renting again if the owner helps out with the upstairs air problem. Otherwise, all the other wants and needs were minor. It was a great week and hopefully we can rent again next Thanksgiving.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and impressions of our house. We value all comments of our guests and make every effort to improve the house where possible. With respect to the AC our guests have full access to lower the cool temperature. The difficulty experienced was when you adjusted the cool setting below that of the heat setting. By doing this the thermostat was not able to respond as you were asking it to simultaneously heat and cool the house. This is why the thermostat reset to the predetermined cooling temperature of 74 degrees. Our guests have full access to adjust the AC so long as the temperature does not fall below the automatic heat setting. A new high efficient AC unit, heat pump and thermostat were installed in October 2015. You also mention the absence of ceiling fans on the upper floor. This is true as the design of the house is such that lights and ceiling fans cannot easily be added. This is why all rooms on the upper floor have lamps and floor fans. Once again we thank you for your comments.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our experience as a family of 8 was very positive. The home is decorated well, clean, spacious, and comfortable. The only small issue we had were with the air conditioning because my sister in law tends to run on the warm side and we could not drop it below 75 degrees in the home. I thought Paul was easy to work with and maintained communication well prior to our arrival.
