“Great ammenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We had a wonderful visit during Easter. THe villa was very attractively decorated but very comfortable. Plenty of room for family with kids. Pool was especially nice. The kids really enjoyed it. What a treat it was to be lounging at the pool and watching people playing golf in the back yard. The community was friendly and well taken care of. Would recommend this villa to families traveling to this area of Florida. We are looking forward to a return visit.

“Excellent Villa In Superb Location..................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Being seasoned visitors to Florida, be assured that this villa is superbly furnished and in a fantastic location. Southern Dunes is a gated community and provides a safe environment protected by licensed security personel. There is a golf course for those who play but of course for those of us who do not there is still the clubhouse which is a three minute walk from the villa which offers bar and restaurant facilities.
My wife and I enjoyed early morning walks which would take about an hour meeting other walkers with a friendly greeting and enjoying the early morning air without even going out of the community.
The villa itself is superbly furnished with the added extras to make your stay complete. The front door leads into a sitting area where you find two comfortable sofas great for sitting and reading while looking out towards the front garden. In this area is also the formal dining area which can sit upto ten. The kitchen area is spacious with a breakfast bar and then there is another sitting area where the televison, playstation and DVD provide more than adaquate entertainment.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms and as it was only my wife and myself staying. we had more than enough room.
The pool area was clean, with the pool cleaning service being carried out for each week we were there. The patio furniture was comfortable, and although we did not use it, there was a gas barbeque available as well.
An added bonus was the free telephone calls to the UK, free wi-fi, and being able to watch the Premier League games as well as the FA Cup Final while we were there without having to find a local pub to go to.
The garage has been converted into a games room with air hockey, pool and table football. Also the use of a washer / dryer was great as opposed to holidays where you end up taking two weeks of laundry home to be sorted.
The nearby facilities included Walmarts and a number of food eating places. Disney is in easy reach of this location being around twenty minutes away by car.
We have stayed in several places over the years in Florida, and this was by far the most comfortable villa we have stayed in. We did not want to leave and we are already looking at dates for next year.
The last added bonus is that the owners are contactable and even phoned us while we were there to make sure we were okay.
I do not usually write reviews but this villa deserved a mention for others to read as the owners have made a great effort to make their home a memorable stay. Whether you are a couple like ourselves, or a family with children, we would highly recommend this villa for a holiday which we can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed and cannot wait to get back to.
