Luxury villa, golf, tennis, swimming, wine and beer – If paradise is as good – it will do for us!  Found it difficult to get the kids out of the pool and the old man off the golf course. However did manage to visit Celebration – great atmosphere in the evenings leading up to Christmas – fake snow included. Many thanks to Alan and Gail, ‘we will never book a hotel again’, that’s for sure.

Had a fantastic fortnight here – enjoyed Disney parks and Sea World, Aquatica was lovely and clean but very pricy once inside.. We ate at a variety of Ponderosas and had 3 lovely evening meals at Manny’s wonderful! Everything was in the villa that we needed, a lovely holiday, Thanks Helen, Mike, Ellie, Caltin, Ann, Dave and Christine

Comment: This was our first experience of renting a villa and I have to say it was wonderful. The villa was luxury itself and everything was very clean, the pool area was very relaxing with great view on the golf course and the children spent hours in the water. Even though we only cooked 2 meals during our 3 weeks stay, we must say that the kitchen is very well equipped. We do have to recommend one special restaurant, offering great food at a very reasonable price: Manny's is only 5 minutes away, we went several times and we were never disappointed. We went to Universal Studios and Sea World but also to Cape Canaveral and Daytona Beach. We also went to Clearwater beach where we saw dolphins and had a great day. We would like to thank Alan and Gail for giving us the opportunity to spend a fantastic time in Florida, they are very nice people and very helpful. We will surely recommend this villa to all our friends.

Comment: Had a wonderful time for a week in late Oct with our 2 kids aged 9 and 11. The villa was perfect - spacious, clean, beautifully appointed, well stocked with every appliance you could want and with a lovely pool. It was a little oasis following 3 solid weeks of travel in the US. Having 24hr Walmart virtually at our doorstep was great. The villa was a great launching pad for Disneyworld (only 25 minutes by car) and Cape Canaveral and for Cirque du Soleil. We would absolutely come back.

Comment: We have spent 2 fantastic weeks staying at your villa and found it and it's location to be perfect in every way. We have visited all the parks whilst we have been here and the house has been a great base. It is really well equipped, clean and spacious and the pool and view onto the golf course are perfect! Alan & Gail have been incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and especially when we needed to extend our stay due to our flight being cancelled, they definitely went over and above the call of duty to help us out! Would thoroughly recommend Many thanks for a wonderful stay. Jeff & Lisa, St Albans, England.

i had such a great time staying in your beautiful home, the weather was fantastic. i had such a chilled out week here, just what i needed after finishing Uni in Leeds. got myself to afew parks SeaWorld and Universal studios/ islands of adventure. the hulk ride is still the best ride in Orlando by far i also managed to get out and watch the England vs USA World Cup game. in a very nice pub called 'the shamrock' shame about the 1-1 draw. however i did watch the game with Kevin Keegan and the 'REAL' Brian Robson. Thank you for a memorable holiday - Gail and Alan. lots of love Joe, Leeds, England

The Villa was perfect, everything we imagined and more. What an ideal base to locate yourself and enjoy everything that Florida can offer you. Out of all the Parks SeaWorld was the most entertaining with plenty to see and do. After a hard day at the beach or the park the Villa offers the perfect place to relax, it really is like a home from home. I whole heartedly recommend it. You really won't want to stay at a hotel ever again. July-August 2010 (3 weeks)

Comment: I have been to Southern Dunes every year for the past 10 years and this is by far the best Villa I have stayed in. It is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. In the past I have only been with a group of men to play golf but this time two of us visited with our wives, they both thought the Villa was fantastic. We will be back.

Comment: came to the villa for Easter 2011 we had a fantastic time, the villa was perfect, everything we needed. We did 9 parks in 14 days and although it was busy it was always lovely to come "home". The pool was a fantastic way to cool down and the children loved it, we have already recommended this villa to ours friends and several have already shown interest in coming. We would definitely recommend using Alan’s Sat Nav it helped massively, didn't get lost once!!!

Comment: Lovely spacious villa and fantastic pool! This is our 2nd trip to Disbney and 2nd villa on Southern Dunes complex - we would certainly never stay anywhere else after experiencing the comfort of a villa here! Close proximity to all the theme parks makes it a perfect to stay. Quiet and restful at the end of a busy day! Thanks for allowing us to share the benefits of your lovely holiday home!

Comment: We have had a fantastic time in Florida once again. The villa suited us down to the ground, the best we have stayed in during our 5 visits to Florida. We also took your advice and visited Gaylord Palms resort for a meal and cocktails on board the ship - the whole family enjoyed it. We also had a couple of meals at Mannys Chop House, really good value and good choice of food especially the top sirloin steak - happy hour 4-7pm, we walked the 2nd time and all had a couple of drinks took around 25 minutes each way. 
All sad to go home today, already planning to return in 2 years and will hopefully be booking your villa again, THANK YOU

Comment: Well, last year we said we hoped to return to your lovely villa and we have. Everything was as good as we remembered; a beautiful pool to chill by (and in) after a hard day's shopping; a very well equipped kitchen to use when we didn't eat out; very comfortable and spacious living rooms in which to relax; and for the more energetic of us, the games' room. This villa is a perfect base for enjoying Florida's attractions and hopefully we will be lucky enough to return once again. Thank you.

Comment: We lucked out when we came across Gail and Alan's place on the internet for a base for our relaxing Florida holiday.
Not to challenging for us, just a trip to Dino-world and the T-Rex cafe outside Disney for our Dino mad tinies.
The rest of the time we just hung out here getting our fix of all things USA, pancakes for breakfast (Winn-Dixies box mix) and the rest of the day in the pool!!
Everything we could need was here to hand - even Guy (the manager) was a star for any queries we had. Thanks for having us.

Comment: We were recommended to Alan & Gail's by a golfing friend who has been regularly coming every year for the last 6 years. we were very glad that we took his advice! 
This is our fifth visit to the Orlando area and each time we have stayed in private villas. We think Alan & Gail have done a great job in making this one a real 'home from home', so well done! We had a great time though we had to pack so much in our - daugther and niece had to do every park of course and we even did SKY COASTER in old Kissimmee. Its definately and OMG experience. Even hurricane ISAAC didnt dampen our enthusiasm! The umbrellas in the cupboard came in very useful by the way. All in all a very comfortable stay and we'd love to come back, (the 3 rounds of golf helped naturally) Best wishes Alan & Claire.

Comment: Stayed here on the recommendation of Angela and Keith (see 28th Oct 2009). We've had a lovely time and really enjoyed the space and tranquility of your villa. We've taken the children to the Worlds 'Despicable Me' is a scream (Universal Studios). Had a lovely swim at Melbourne Beach today. The water was warm and clean - NICE! We tried Fiesta Mexican in Haines City it was good, understated and cheap. With best wishes to you and your future guests. Jan and Glenn.

Comment: I would like to thanks Alan and Gail for all their advice which they gave to me the villa was one of the nicest villa's we have ever stayed in. It was very clean and the rooms were very large. we had great days round the pool which overlooked a golf course which if you're a golfer is a bonus Southern Dunes itself is a security gated complex which has a very nice clubhouse. The villa is  ideal located for the theme parks. Just across the road is a parade of supermarkets and places to eat.

Comment: We all had a wonderful time. The villa was great and the pool was amazing a greatly used. We enjoyed the cleanliness of the villa and the comforts of the furniture. We enjoyed relaxing beside the pool enjoying the views of the golf course and the wild life. Guy was absolutely wonderful, he couldn't have been more helpful and came to us as quick as you could, he was very helpful and fixed everything he is an absolute asset to southern dunes and highly recommendable. we wrote a message in the guest book at the end of our stay and hope you enjoy reading our memories.

Comment: Thank you so much Alan and Gail for allowing us to rent and stay in your beautiful home in Southern Dunes. We love that the back yard has sun most of the day but also had a covered area to eat and be in the shade. It was also nice that the side had privacy lattice between the house and bushes. The house was well stocked with supplies and very clean. It was great to have the high chair and playpen there for our use too. We love that everything is so close to southern dunes. Walmart, win Dixie and lots of restaurants. We also took advantage of going to Eva park to play . Disney and Lego land are a short drive away. Thanks again .We will be back.

Thank you to everyone for your
feedback it's very important to us!!

Hope To Hear From You Soon
