We enjoyed the home. Communication with the owners and vrbo was good but tried to reach mgnt and cou
A good bargain
The house was okay. The carpet was w spotty in places. We let the owner know and was quick to respond and have property management come out. Overall, our stay was good.
Great Place for a Family Vacation
My family and I had a great vacation at Southern Dunes. The accommodation was top notch luxury with all the amenities. It was centrally located and closed to many of Central Florida cities. Minutes to Disney World and Orlando and less than two hours drive to Fort Pierce, Tampa and St. Petersburg All in all it was a great place to spend a vacation.
The stay and property was great. The cost of the conversion from the British pound to the American dollar for the down payment, deposit and the payment was about 75.00. Was not expecting this. Will stay with American owners next time.
This is a wonderful home, decked out with everything you could need. Great host who makes sure you’re happy. We will definitely be back!
Crooked Management Company
We had a great stay while attending the Homeschool World Series Baseball Tournament in Auburndale. The home was in good condition and most everything was in working order. We requested and paid for pool heating. By the third night, the pool was not any warmer so I informed the management company that is wasn't working. They turned it on the next day. After my stay I asked the owner for 3 days worth of heating cost to be refunded. He took over a week to reply. Then his management company accused us of staining his mattresses and pillows and tearing his dinning room chairs. The chairs had torn plastic covers on them when we arrived. We brought our own pillows and placed his on the floor. The pictures that were sent over for documentation showed stains that were clearly years old. His management company was mad that they got caught not doing their job by not turning on the pool heat and are trying to blame us for things that were damaged by tenants from months gone by.
Don't rent from these crooks. They charged me for damages that we never caused. Take video as soon as you walk into your unit. Take the sheets off the beds and take photos. Or you too will get charged.
The pool light was not working and the sliding door alarm to the pool area didn't work either. Both are rental code violations in Florida.
Our house is approx. 45 minutes drive from Orlando International Airport. Other airports that may be considered are Tampa and Sanford (both around 1 hrs drive).
Our house is an easy 20 mins drive to the Disney Parks, 25 mins drive to Universal Studios, Sea World etc. Just 15 minutes to the new Legoland theme park.
There is a huge Walmart Superstore open 24/7 within walking distance just outside the southern Dunes resort are; gas stations, banks, pharmacies and restaurants, with many more of the above within easy driving distance. One of the best nearby restaurants is 'Manneys' only a few minuets drive from the resort
