OVERLOOKING THE 18TH TEE!

NO REAR NEIGHBORS!

VERY PRIVATE!

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 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, 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 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 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 55 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 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.

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 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.

Thank you Paul & Nancy for allowing us to use your beautiful home. It was so quiet and peaceful and very private. Just what we needed. We would definitely book again the next time we are back in Florida.

Enjoyed it all.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Everything was perfect. One morning I woke up to see a pair of cranes slowly walking across the golf course just outside the pool area. Very soothing.

We came as 2 families of 4 and had a great time. Plenty of space for all of us. The pool area felt very private and we didn't see/hear the neighbors at all.

I really wish we could have stayed longer and even try a round of golf. Even the weather was good, only rained once the entire week and mid-80s to high 90s the rest of the time. Made the pool feel refreshing.

Can't wait to go back some time.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Southern Dunes on many occasions and this house is the best!

Privacy is very important to us and this house did not disappoint. The pool area was so quiet that we felt like we were the only ones staying in the community. We especially enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings after long days visiting the local sites.

We found the house to be very clean and equipped with everything we needed to be comfortable. The owners were easy to deal with and always prompt with answering our questions.

We will definitely return!

Awesome place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't stress enough what an awesome experience it was. Right from the start the owners were so wonderful to deal with. The house was exactly as described. The house and location were perfect. My kids loved the ping pong table. The pool was such a warm welcome especially after long days being on our feet and in the heat at the Disney & Universal parks. Plenty of room for everyone. Loved it! Will definitely be back!
