Lovely Villa
Askew Family
We have just returned from our brilliant family holiday. The villa was perfect, a real home from home, it had everything we needed. It was very clean, spacious and well maintained, we didn't have any issues the whole holiday and had no need to contact the management company. The booking process with Alan and Clair was easy and they answered all of our questions and gave all the information we needed.
The villa was in an excellent location for driving to the theme parks, and was situated in a very secure gated Golf and Country club. The area was very peaceful and beautifully maintained. There is a huge Walmart just outside the entrance to the country club where you can buy all your groceries and holiday essentials.
The villa itself was very well equipped with everything you would want from a holiday villa. The pool area was wonderful and very private with the hedge around the outside of the pool screen. Plenty of pool furniture and loungers for everyone, and the pool itself was kept lovely and warm all day from the solar heating. We couldn't get the kids out of the pool some days, and most evenings when we got back from the parks they headed straight for a swim! The games room was a big hit with them too!
All in all we had a fab holiday and would love to return to the villa for our next Florida holiday.

Great Villa
Elaine M. Nov 2013
The villa was very spacious and well equipped. The deck had a number of sun loungers etc. The pool area has a hedge surrounding it so gave us privacy while enjoying the pool or just soaking up the sun. There was also wifi in the villa - a must for my husband who keeps an eye on his business while we are on vacation. The decoration has been refreshed and the pool area has had work done too. Neil from the management company was very quick to respond to our phone calls and the problem sorted out satisfactorily. The pool was the warmest that I have ever had in Florida which was fantastic. The golf course was in very good condition and a pleasure to play according to my husband who took full advantage of the facility. The golf club was good for lunch and we also enjoyed a meal on Thanksgiving too. Manny's Chophouse, as always, was fantastic although very busy. Best steaks of our vacation. We went to Tampa for the auto show and also Kennedy Space Centre. Enjoyed Old Town Classic Cars on Saturday night.
Alan and Clair, the villa owners, were easy to deal with. Emails were answered promptly and our experience with them was all positive. I would love to go back to Primrose Retreat again.

Owner's Response: Very happy to have another happy guest enjoying our high specification villa which we maintain to a high standard and if a problem does occur we deal with it quickly and efficiently to ensure there vacation is not spoilt The problem was an airlock in the pool heater quickly sorted and up and running again. We always happy to have comments and look forward to all our guests enjoying our Villa

Faultless villa
Mark W. Dec 2013
We have stayed on Southern Dunes several times, this is the only villa that had no faults. Perfect quiet location, great privacy by the pool. A full TV system with access to premiership football, golf and films is a real bonus. The wi fi is good speed with adequate coverage. Plenty of everything inside, added with it's great location, we would highly recommend this villa.

Excellent Villa
David Simpson ( april 22nd 2011 - 6th May 2011)
Just returned from Orlanda and the family and I thoroughly enjoyed the villa - 5 star all round , beds are really comfy, grat pool, BBQ was used non stop and the surrounding golf club was magnificient. I will definately be returning. The villa itself had everything you could wish for and satellite TV came in handy to watch the royal wedding. I would definately recommend the villa . Disney Parks all within 24 miles and so easy to get to

About Primrose Retreat

When we selected our Florida Villa we looked at all developments and layouts before choosing Southern Dunes and our 4 Bed 3 Bath Florida home.

Our layout offers three great areas to relax and enjoy yourselves when resting between your trips out. Kept to a very high standard and regularly updated, our villa is light and decorated in neutral colours to suit all tastes. The villa gives you spacious living with both quiet areas and entertaining areas. Air conditioned throughout with the added benefit of ceiling fans in all rooms.

The front lounge has a large vaulted ceiling providing a seating area and the main dinning area with a large table and 8 Chairs. An arched opening leads through to the rear area comprising the kitchen area with nook for occasional eating and rear lounge with sofas. This area also has the main TV and DVD player with the cable box.

Our extended pool deck is sunny all day with up to 6 loungers and chairs - an ideal place to relax after a day in the parks. Solar panels provide FREE pool heating during summer months though the additional heat pump may be required during colder months.

Fully alarmed and monitored for your added security, the villa also has a safe available for your valuables.

The villa is wheel chair accessible and further facilities for disabled access can be provided by prior arrangement at time of booking.

SOUTHERN DUNES itself is located 20 minutes from Disney, 30 minutes from Universal and close to Tampa and Busch Gardens. In a quiet Gated residential area, it affords the best of both worlds - close enough to the Orlando attractions for ease of access but also giving quick access to the beaches of the west coast if you want a rest from the Theme Parks. There is a Wal-mart at the entrance to the community together with restaurants, including the very popular Many's, fast food outlets, Eckard's, video rental shops and banks.

In fact everything you need on the doorstep. If you desire you can actually walk to them.
