I was delighted with my villa...didn't think it would be as good as promised. Clean, very helpful phone service - handy for takeaways and phoning home made easy as was everything else...really appreciated that. Slightly further out than we would have liked from Disney etc but ok...Walmart right next door...food good locally. Would certainly go back.

This was the reaction we gave the holiday home when we opened the door! The quality of the home was superb and could not be faulted. It had everything we could have wanted and more. It was clean, welcoming and very spacious. All mod cons made living very easy - sadly I even loved the washing machine and tumble drier as it meant we didn't even take any dirty washing home!!
The children loved our private pool and we often used it in the dark after a long day at Disney.
Having 24hr Walmart outside the complex was great as it meant we could call in on the way home for bread, milk etc at any time. The Dollar Tree (like our £ shop) was also handy.
The complex itself was well maintained and very quiet (apart from the birds!). Having a golf course directly behind our home was lovely.
The only drawback to this home (and I am struggling to find one!) was the location. The children got a bit tired of driving up and down the same highway to get to the various theme parks, but having visited International Drive area, I think we preferred having the drive!! It was good to get away from the hussle and bussle of Orlando and the theme park area. Fuel is much cheaper so it didn't cost a fortune.
All in all I really can't fault this home. If you are thinking of renting this home, or a similar one then I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Have a great time!

I enjoyed staying at comtempo homes it was a very nice place for a family to kick back and relax from all the work, school and other activities. my only problem was it was way too far from all the activities like universal studios and sea world it took us about an 1hr1/2 to travel back and forth.

Thanks so much for taking the time to feedback regarding your stay at Southern Dunes. This beautiful gated golf community is a little further out than other sub-divisions and for many people, that is the attraction. We do hope you will return and we can certainly provide a home that is near to the attractions and will better serve your needs. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Great base for Disney

We just spent 2 wonderful weeks at Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club and had a wonderful time. This is
the first time that we stayed in a vacation rental home instead of a hotel -- and it was perfect.The
house was closer to Disney which is just what we wanted but far enough away to have the peace & quiet that we wanted. We are a family of 7 with 5 children aged 7 -19 years. The villa was just right for us with plenty of space for all of us. We were recommended to have the pool heated, but we felt that it was to expensice to do this, as it turned out the weather heated it most of the time & even at 10pm the water was very warm, so I wouln't recommend wasting money on getting it heated. I really like that we could walk to Walmart which made life a lot easier that having to take the car everywhere, even Mcdonalds was a short walk way. The manager had already told us were the kays were so we just drove right to the house. Everything was in order when we arrived, and we were pleased to
learn that the pictures online matched the home. It's actually nicer than the pictures! There was plenty of towels for everyone. When we did have a problem with the water this was quickly sorted & we were given another villa while the water was sorted this took 1 day. We'd definitely recommend this house - especially if you're bringing kids and want to spend a lot of your time at disney & also want to have a few days by the pool. I liked the idea that all the utnesilos were easy to use & made life alot easier as my kids are fussy eaters & would have been a nightmare to take them out to eat all the time. With plenty of room for the kids and T.V s in the rooms made life a lot easier when everyone was tired after a long day & wanted some me time. I would love to go back very soon & we are saving hard to come again. My advice would be make sure that you hire a car for your trips as you would need one, but a GREAT base to use for disney without the great cost!!!!
If you use this option I am sure you will have a great holiday we all did !!!!!!! Read more
