Had a great stay in the villa. This is a great place to be based. Not too close and not too far away from the attractions. Once again, thank you John, Your villa is an important part of a super holiday.
It is a wonderful villa. I would love to come again. Had a wonderful family holiday in marvellous surroundings.
Fantastic time again! Thanks John
Enjoyed our stay last year and enjoyed our stay this year too. House great, in a great spot.
I love this place. I wished I lived here. I hope I can come to this some time next year
I had such a great time. Love the house and pool.
This is our 2nd visit here and we enjoyed it just as much as the 1st time. We will be back next year and many more years to come
Enjoyed location, home and facilities. We had a really good time, thankyou. Friendly helpful owners
This house was great and so was the pool. I hope to come back again.
This is a wonderful villa. The house is great, beautiful, clean and the location is wonderful. We spent a wonderful time and we felt like at home. We hope that all the people come here take care of this house and maintain everything as good as we received.
We’ve really enjoyed our 2 weeks in Florida staying at this lovely villa with its great facilities and its fantastic location to all the attractions of Florida and Orlando
We have had a great time in Florida. The house is/was even better than last year and we spent loads of time in the pool. It was big roomy and very well decorated (job well done). We wish we could stay.
We don’t want to leave. The villa is stunning. It was so clean and spotless, fantastic facilities, so many towels etc. Our favourite bit was the pool and the amazing view. This villa is most definitely a home away from home.
The villa was a fantastic home from home. Everything you could think of needing is here. Thank you.
What a fabulous 3 weeks we have spent in this wonderful villa. It really has felt like home from home
Sadly we are going home today after a fantastic 3 weeks here. As usual, everything has been great. This was our 3rd trip and we are already planning the next one.

Left on 09/12/2014 for a stay in July 2014 | HolidaymoonpalaceReviewed Sep 12, 2014Stayed Jul 2014
Travelled with family and friends to this gated accommodation within the complex of the Southern Dunes Golf course. From walking through the door on that first evening, it was clear that the accommodation had been set up to provide us with that home from home feeling. It has everything you could possibly need - relaxation within two lounges, lots of space, fully equipped with washing machine / dryer, play room and of course the pool. Having travelled all the way to Florida with the kids to see MIckey, MInney and their mates, first thing the girls wanted to do every day was to go in the pool! The villa is ideally situated for all the parks with an easy drive of between 20 and 35 minutes depending on which park you are traveling to.
Great place, great location - would we stay there again, you bet we would. Thanks for adding to a fantastic holiday. Read more
Thanks so much for your positive feedback
Glad you had a great time

"Sensational stay in spectacular villa!!"
Left on 10/02/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 2, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
We had an absolutely incredible 2 weeks at this truly beautiful villa in July. We were very lucky from day 1 with the weather and enjoyed some very relaxed days, soaking up the sun by the pristine pool looking onto the golf course and firing up a few Bbqs. We then delved into the heart of the Disney theme parks. With only a 15-20minute drive to the parks we managed to get there at the opening time with ease to take full advantage of all Disney has to offer. It was then a pleasure to head back to the villa in the evening and take full advantage of all the great restaurants just a 10minute walk away (our favourite was Mannys - 2 for 1 cocktails before 730!). The villa itself is just so spacious with a great pool table/table tennis table inside to keep the kids happy. A great, great holiday...we will definitely be back!! Read more

I don't know where to start - we have just enjoyed the most fantastic family holiday staying at this beautiful spacious villa. The villa was spotlessly clean and there was everything (and more) that you could possible wish for. The villa is set in a beautiful, quiet location, but within easy reach of all the main attractions. The information left by the owners (hints and tips) was invaluable - especially the recommendations of places to eat. The pictures and photos around the villa gave it such a homely feel. We have racked our brains, and cannot think of anything to recommend or improve upon - it is simply wonderful. The villa was adored by both children and adults alike, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you to the owners letting us stay in your beautiful villa. Read more
Thanks a lot. We are thrilled you had such a great time. Your feedback is really appreciated. It's been a pleasure following your adventure

Left on 09/06/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 6, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
Recently had a stay at this fabulous property and the photos just don't do it justice ... it is so much more spacious than it looks, there were 7 of staying at one point and it never felt crowded. It is exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean with ample bedding and towels provided. The fixtures and furnishings are of a high quality and with a real homely feel. The pool area is immaculate and is well maintained. The villa is in a central location for exploring all Florida but especially good for Disney and Universal. The nearby Walmart made it a little too easy to pick up more drink and food (yes in that order!). We had a great stay there and wouldn't hesitate to book again, a real gem of a property! x Read more
Thanks for posting such a positive review. It gives us so much pleasure that guests enjoy the efforts we have put into making the villa so special...ably assisted by our local Manager of course.

I chose this house based on the amenities, location, pictures etc. but the reviews from others made this house my first choice. They were correct in that this house is simply fabulous, with everything you can imagine and more! The owner was beyond wonderful, making us feel completely comfortable with our choice from the first email until the last correspondence. I hope to return again soon... my children loved it so much, they asked if we could buy this house and live there forever! Read more
Thanks Megan for the fantastic feedback.
So glad you liked the villa and that you had a great time
Hope you can all make it back sometime soon

Left on 11/25/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 25, 2012Stayed Oct 2012
Just come back from our 3rd stay at the villa and we are already planning for our next visit. From the initial booking with John to any queries weve had, nothing has been any trouble and things couldnt have gone any smoother. The home itself is nicely laid out with plenty of room and facilities. The location is a little away from the parks which is ideal if like us you like some time away from them to sample what the rest of the orlando area has to offer eg in terms of restaurants, other attractions. Amenities in walking distance are a walmart and bank which is also handy.

The villa is in an excellent location close to all amenities and all the Disney World theme parks and Universal/Islands of adventure. Bush gardens is only 60 minutes drive away too and well worth a visit. We rented the villa for 3 weeks, so it really did feel like home from home, especially with wifi. It was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for all 6 of us and plenty of towels. The swimming pool was fantastic and clean with no-one overlooking you as you had the view of the golf course.I would highly recommend the villa to anyone thinking of renting it. Read more
Your kind words are greatly appreciated

"Excellent family holiday"

We were a party of 7 - 3 generations and would have no hesitation whatsoever in
recommending this accommodation.
Generous living accommodation and open
views at the rear.
All our needs were fully met from cycles to snorkelling equipment. All the theme parks are easily accessible and the help we received from the owner of the property was excellent. We were contacted just prior to leaving and again on our return to ensure that everything was in order.
If you are going to Orlando, this is the place to stay
Left on 03/04/2011 for a stay in April 2008 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 4, 2011Stayed Apr 2008
We stayed here for 2 weeks in april 2008, having stayed on Southern Dunes several times previously we knew what a great location it was with the Walmart and some good restaraunts and take aways at the entrance and nearby. The owner John communicated with us through the whole booking process by e-mail and phone, he even booked us a motel for one night as we arrived on a Friday and rang us once we arrived to make sure all was ok. The villa was all we expected and more; spacious and spotlessley clean, even with 4 adults and 3 children you could find a quiet corner to relax, the master bedroom and en suite were great (a huge en suite with seperate shower and plenty of towels). It was a real home from home with toys for the children, books, dvds & games, we had a real scream with board games in the evenings. A great games room too and bikes!! you can do all your washing and hang things to dry on the line in the garage/games room and use the dryer if needed. Then there is all the great memorabilia to look at and the fantastic pool overlooking the golf course. You wont find a nicer villa on southern dunes for the money, i did my research! Take a visit to the Sports Bar over the road and Mannys Restaraunt for the best steaks, Taco Bell is just round the corner and you can get your pizza and chinese delivered. We had the most amazing time in this villa the last time we went to Orlando and cant wait to return, thanks John hope to be back again soon!!

The villa had everything needed for two families to keep themselves occupied when staying in the villa. The pool, bedrooms, kitchen, games room etc were all what I expected - high standard. The location was fine - about 25 mins from Disney etc. The actual resort was very clean and clearly well tended. Unfortunately I could not take advantage of the golf course. The service we received from John was nothing short of perfect- cheers John. And finally all visitors must visit Manny's Restaurant. Brill. Suffice to say, I will be going back to Florida in a couple of years time and will return to Johns villa.

Ideally located out of the hustle and bustle of Orlando. The villa is situated on a golf course location, quiet with numerous facilities, pool, bikes, games room. A twenty minute walk from shops and restaurants. The owner John Batty cannot do enough for you and although we have been to Florida twenty plus times some of the advise he gave us was very useful. We enjoyed it so much we are renting the villa again this year.

We've been staying in this villa for a number of years and can honestly say that we've always had a fantastic time. Value for money is excellent and the villa is a home away from home. This allows us all to relax and "do our own thing" at our own pace.
Southern Dunes is an excellent location, close to a large Walmart for easy shopping.The driving from Orlando is easy. If you like to dine out, Manny's ChopHouse is close by for good food.
Overall a holiday location I will return to time and time again.

After all the excitement and customary build up to our hoilday with shared family friends we all arrived at our holiday destination - Grand Floridan Villa.
Initial impressions were very favourable as the size and quality of the accomadation revealed itself room by room. As we discovered over the next 2 weeks this is truly an excellent holiday base to operate from. The long days away having fantastic fun at everything Orlando has to offer were equally enjoyed in time spent relaxing in the Villa. One lasting memory was our late evening 'boys v girls pool volleyball matches on our return which were followed by sumptuous garden Bbq's. I recall thinking to myself we deserve this 'its what you go to work for'' Great place and great times! A highly enjoyable and thoroughly recommended place for a special holiday.
