About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10




One of the most highly rated houses in the Dunes! Many guests return each year to this fabulous house to recharge in the Florida sun.

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

A private pool with no rear neighbors and the decks of the houses on either side cannot be seen from the 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, 46 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 upper 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 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.

The Living Room has 2 full sized sofas and one side chair for comfortable seating for you and your guests. Watching cable or streaming the latest Netflix movie is easy on the 55 inch TV.

There is a separate dining room with seating for 6.

Save money over a hotel stay by preparing your own meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. The separate laundry facilities means you can pack light for your flight to Florida.

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 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 Hillman purchased this villa in 2011

Why Paul Hillman chose Southern Dunes

Over the past 25 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.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Haines City to attend my son's college baseball spring tournament, which took place in Auburdeen and Winter Haven. Proximity to both was perfect. The house itself was FANTASTIC! Plenty of room, kitchen had every appliance (even a crockpot, which was helpful after a long day on the fields). The pool and hot tub were great, private, clean. Definitely pay the extra for the heat/hot tub. We would go back to the same house in a second.

Fabulously well-equipped, comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

The house was really well maintained and was spotlessly clean on arrival.

We were very impressed by how well equipped the kitchen was and didn't find it lacking in anything. There were also more than enough towels for the bathrooms and pool use.

The house itself is very spacious and comfortable with plenty of options for dining and sleeping.

The pool is in a very private position with great views of the 18th tee. A great place for people and wildlife watching! There is ample space around the pool for people to sit and sunbathe, getting sun all round the day. The pool itself is a great size whatever your age.

We enjoyed our stay so much we would definitely consider booking it again. Thank you!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet neighbourhood, private backyard, beautiful comfortable home. The owners were easy to deal with and very prompt when corresponding with them. This house has all you need for a relaxing stay. The location was fantastic and a 30 min commute to the Disney parks. Would definitely stay here again.

Hard to Stay Away!

  • 5 of 5

Although we just only left a few months ago, we saw an empty week on the calendar and quickly decided to return to Florida and this beautiful house. We love this house! When you walk in it looks and smells clean and of course it is! The location is perfect for our family as we have teenagers that enjoy the nearby theme parks and adults that love the golf course that is in the back yard!!! Of course nothing is better than sitting by the pool and enjoying the Florida sunshine. Thanks! We will return...again!
