Southern Dunes is an established and peaceful community comprising of a mix of vacation homes and owner occupied homes. There is an active residents association focused on maintaining and improving the community. As you enter the community there is a lake to the right and trees lining the roads and edging the golf course, all of which give the area a ‘country’ feelWithin the community there are 3 swimming pools, there are two tennis courts and small children’s play area with swings and slides. Just outside the main gate to the community are two large supermarkets, Winn-Dixie and Wal-Mart which will have everything you need (Food, Pharma...cy, Clothes etc). Wal-Mart is open 24 hours and has a petrol (gas) station. This comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is cozy with an open feel. There is a formal seating and dining area.
The 3 bedroom are nicely furnished. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a TV. The other 2 bedrooms have twin beds. The main bathroom has a separate pool entrance.
This home has a fully equipped kitchen complete with a dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with an icemaker, microwave oven, waste disposal unit and all crockery and cutlery are included. The dinning room table is a perfect choice for a family style sit down dinner

Left on 08/04/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | The Wilsons
We have used Comtempo and Florida Villa Options over a number of years with complete satisfaction. However on this occasion although the normal key collection was fine, arriving at the Villa was really disappointing. The lawns to the garden were bare in large patches and the exterior of the building looked uncared for and poorly maintained. Around the front windows and doors was ingrained with dirt. On opening the front door the interior was even less inviting. The carpet was dirty and worn, the kitchen and appliances were poorly maintained with the hob on the cooker at least two rings were not flat and so we were unable to use it. The cushion floor was ripped in places and full of stiletto heel marks in places the carpets were threadbare. The master bathroom had mildew around the shower and all the washbasins in both bathrooms were showing signs of rusting. There was limited additional bedding and towels to use. There was enough dust to write your name in on the video recorder. The pool area was dirty and would have benefitted from a good power washing and pool clean. We contacted Contempo and asked to be relocated, offering to pay any additional costs, unfortunately they were unable to accommodate this. Their best offer was to have someone come round to clean and carry out maintenance during our stay, which was less than satisfactory. We were told that their Operations Manager would contact us, and to date we are still waiting for that response. Florida Villa Options did respond initially but did not manage to resolve anything for us and totally ignored the e-mail as soon as compensation was mentioned. We would certainly not recommend this property and if selecting Southern Dunes area through Florida Villa Options you may be allocated this property so our recommendation would be to avoid this area completely.
