About the property

Spacious 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom VIlla with Spa pool and Golf Course view

A very warm welcome to your home from home. Our four bedroom, three bath spacious villa with its own private illuminated spa pool overlooks the 2nd fairway of Southern Dunes Golf Course - Fabulous!

Our villa offers the ideal accommodation due to the spacious open plan aspect. The villa has two living areas, perfect for two families. The living room at the front of the house also incorporates the dining area. It is an ideal area for adults to relax and socialise leaving the kids to have their own space!

The fully equipped kitchen is open plan and looks onto the breakfast area and family room, so the cooks in the house can still be part of the fun! In the kitchen you will find all you need during your vacation. The family room has large comfy sofas to sit back, relax and enjoy the views over the pool and golf course.

The large master bedroom is a great place to relax with its own bathroom with corner bath and walk in shower. The large walk in closet will also be able to house all your purchases from the local outlet malls. There are two twin bedrooms and a further full size en-suite double bedroom.

The illuminated spa pool has fantastic views of the fairway, and is great to relax in on hot Floridian days or to sit around and have a relaxing sundowner watching the magnificent sunsets. The extended pool deck is furnished with sun beds and a table and chairs for a little alfresco dining. Swim, play or sunbathe the choice is yours! The pool does have optional heater available.

Keep in touch with free internet access and telephone calls to mainland USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. The villa also has a washer and dryer to take care of those wet swimming clothes.

For the security of our guests, a safe is provided, however, no responsibility can be assumed for personal items placed within.

Southern Dunes is home to one of the best golf courses in Florida. Even if you are not a golfer you will quickly appreciate the beauty of this exceptionally well maintained and secure community. The golf course also has an excellent clubhouse restaurant which is open throughout the day for lunches and on Sunday has a very good brunch. Southern Dunes boasts three community pools, clubhouse gym, tennis courts and children`s play area.

Southern Dunes is located just off Hwy 27 in Haines City, around 20 minutes to the Disney World parks and is the closest of all communities to the new Legoland Park which is a short 15 minute drive to the south.

About Laura and Simon Wootton

We are both originally come from the UK but have lived in the Middle East for the last 15 years.

Laura and Simon Wootton purchased this villa in 2015

Why Laura and Simon Wootton chose Southern Dunes

Having travelled extensively in the USA, we decided to visit Florida. We stayed in our friends house and loved it so much, we ended up buying it.

We loved the beautiful setting of Southern Dunes and the ease of access to all the major attractions, but really enjoyed coming home to enjoy sitting by the pool and watching the sun setting over the golf course.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The villa was beautiful and clean. It had everything and beds were really comfortable. The owners were really nice and promptly answered our questions. Made renting much easier than our past experiences with other villas at Southern Dunes. We are looking forward to going back.

Absolutely beautiful Florida Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Southern Dunes before in other vacation homes. This home is the largest we've stayed in. It has everything for a family! Laundry, crockpot, linens, most importantly a POOL!! Laura and Simon are wonderful to work with! They made us feel welcomed from the beginning. All of the main attractions are close and easy to get to. I recommend this home to anyone that is looking to stay close to the Orlando, Kissimmee, St. Cloud area.

The Beautiful Dunes Home

  • 5 of 5

Laura & Simon

We are currently here. 5/22-6/3/17

We have rented thru American Homes for 17yrs to come to Florida. We have stayed in this location about 6yrs ago.

Must say I knew when we walked in the House had new owners. Your home is beautiful, you have updated it well.

The location is perfect for anyone who wants to have the homey feeling but not to close to all the hustle & bussle of being to close to theme parks. The home is well equipped (only thing we bought extra was new potholders, leaving in drawer)

The pool is amazing, the backdrop of golf course is perfect. Golfing here is wonderful. Love the safety of the guarded & gated community. Plus we have alot of stores within 5mins (walmart, mcdonalds,taco bell, Popeyes, pizza, Chinese & gas stations to name a few)

We will do as we usually do in any home leave the next family food in the cupboards. Hopefully it will help start their trip.

We can not wait to come back & see you next changes you make.

Thank you for allowing us to share your home.

Best Wishes

Meria Hackett & Family

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Great views and spacious for family.

Only recommendation would be to update mattresses as they were not the most comfortable. Pool was great for kids and perfect temperatures- thank goodness for option for heated pool! Thanks for the stay!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your recent stay and we thank you for your kind comments and feedback. We have taken on board your recommendation and, whilst it is sometimes difficult to find the perfect mattresses to suit all guests, we will be renewing these and some beds later this year. We hope this did not detract too much from your overall holiday experience. Thank you again, SImon and Laura

Our second stay here & still lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Southern Dunes is a beautiful complex, close to everything. We have stayed here several times and this was our second stay as a family of 6 at this particular villa. It is well equipped with every item/appliance you could ever need. Sofas and beds are clean and comfortable. The layout of the villa works perfectly for us as a family of 2 grandparents, 2 parents & 2 children, allowing everyone to be together but also have plenty of space!We noticed there had been a few changes since our last visit- the decoration, a bigger tv & new washer/drier which were all appreciated. Laura & Simon the owners are really friendly, always answering any questions we may have. We certainly hope to visit again soon. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday!

Set in the peaceful, secure and well maintained Southern Dunes community you will find 3 community swimming pools, tennis courts, gymnasium, excellent restaurant and bar right on your doorstep! All of this in addition to a top-rated golf course and lake walk. There are large Walmart and Win Dixie stores located just before the main community gate for easy stocking up on those essential provisions. Also within easy walking distance of the main gate are a number of food outlets. For the carnivore we highly recommend Mannys Chop House just a short walk away on the I-27. Booking is advised!

Disney, Seaworld, Epcott and all major attractions are 20-25 minutes drive and the new Legoland is a 15 minute drive away. Kennedy Space centre at Cape Canaveral is a must for any budding Astronaut (around a 1 hour drive)

For something a little different try Orlando Balloon Rides 8 miles and rated 5* on Trip Advisor. Captain Fred's Airboat Tours at Lake Hamilton, 6 miles away is also highly recommended and rates 5* on Trip Advisor. When in season, why not try picking your own juicy Florida oranges at Ridge Island Coves, some 4 miles away on the Polk City road.

The Vibrant city of Tampa on the gulf coast (around 70 miles) offers a large variety of shops, eateries and other attractions to suit all tastes.

Of course, you may just prefer to stay at home by the pool and enjoy a refreshing drink whilst watching a beautiful sunset over the fairway!
