Martin and Susan Hockey

We are Martin and Susan Hockey. We have owned Florida Breeze Villa since it was built in late 2001.

We are British, but we have lived in the US (New Jersey) and Canada (Alberta). We now live in a 200 year old cottage in Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dales in the north of England.

Susan was born and brought up in Halifax in Yorkshire. She spent her career in universities, and held posts at Oxford University, Rutgers University, the University of Alberta and University College London. Her subject area was computing for the arts and humanities.

Martin was born and brought up in Bristol. After university (where he met Susan) he became an accountant. He worked in Oxford, New York, High Wycombe, Slough and London. He specialized in tax, and spent the later part of his career helping Americans do business in the UK and helping Brits deal with American bureaucracy.

We are now both retired – cant think how we ever had time to go to work. In his spare time, Martin goes long distance walking. In our retirement, we travel to places we never had time to go to when we worked.

Best of all is our villa's position. Our pool faces south, overlooking the 17th hole of the prestigious Southern Dunes golf course, and a small wooded area. You will not be overlooked by your neighbours. There is a hedge between you and each neighbouring house.



If one or more of the party is a golfer, this is a great location. But there is no need to play golf to enjoy our villa to the full. Many of our guests just enjoy the greenery and the open views.



Southern Dunes is a genuine gated community. There is a 24-hour security guard at the gate, so that you can feel completely secure as you relax and enjoy the scene.



Disney is just 20 minutes drive away - and it's an easy drive, dual carriageway all the way from the Southern Dunes entrance.

* "We have been to Florida many times and your villa was the best!" (F family, Scotland)

* "One of the best villas we've stayed in" (Peter & Lynda, UK)

* "What a spectacular place you have - very spacious and well equipped" (M family, Ottawa, Canada)

* "This is our second time at this lovely villa and couldn't ask for more" (James & Sarah, Portsmouth, UK)

Southern Dunes amazing as always

5.0 / 5

I have now stayed in three villas in Southern Dunes. I stay here every time I visit Florida now, and will continue to do so as the location is perfect.
It is just far enough to be perfectly peaceful, away from the busy tourist life that follows the theme parks etc. But it is also within a nice easy 25 minute drive of all the parks and shopping areas. I love southern dunes.
The community is so beautifully kept, and has such a nice calm, peaceful, holiday atmosphere to it.

I have to say of the three villas I have stayed in, this one is definitely my favourite. The open kitchen, living area is perfect for groups to hang out in, cook and eat together. We spent a good few lunchtimes and some evenings all in the same room, having a nice relaxing time on the days we were not out and about.
The pool area is everything you need, we heated the pool during our stay which was a good decision so not too much of a shock when diving in out of the florida heat.

I can't speak highly enough of our recent stay. All six of us loved it. None of us wanted to leave.

Driving into Southern Dunes is such a great feeling, you get a little wave off of the security guard as you enter, and then you're driving through calm, quiet, attractive roads. Views of the golf course. It's perfect.

I will most definitely be getting in contact with Martin and Susan when I plan to return to Florida. I want to stay here again, no doubt.
The owners were very helpful as our trip was quite complicated with timings etc. We were offered solutions which helped us out majorly, and were very greatful for the owners catering to us in the way they did.
It's a lovely home, the owners are easy and pleasant to deal with. And I'll definitely be in contact again

Thank you for a lovely stay

Wonderful villa- highly recommend

5.0 / 5

We have recently returned from a marvellous vacation in this lovely villa in Southern Dunes. We had previously been to Sourhern Dunes, so chose the area again because we enjoy accommodation slightly away from the parks (approx 25minutes drive). The gated community is peaceful, well managed & safe. For our family we love having the balance between the action packed theme parks & the quiet villa area.
The villa itself is well kept, having 4 spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a beautiful newly refurbished kitchen, together with a gorgeous swimming pool and decking area. We really felt the villa was a home from home & perfect place to relax. The pool was a particular highlight, in which we spent many hours enjoying the sunshine.
Southern Dunes has a Walmart just before the entrance to the gated community and so it was easy to pick up food to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. In addition there are a wealth of different types of restaurants nearby.
The villa owners provide a useful file of information on the local attractions and instructions to the facilities (such as the oven, dishwasher & tv). In addition the villa has a washer & dryer for guests to use & a great library of books to borrow during your stay.
All communication with Martin & Susan has been really helpful, including very speedy return of the security deposit for the villa & they have helped make our vacation a very happy one. We would definitely recommend both their lovely villa & their excellent service. Thank you very much. Hopefully we'll return in the near future.

Spring Basbeall getaway

5.0 / 5

The home in Southern Dunes was very nice and so was working with Martin and Susan on securing the home for our week in Florida. For us the home was centrally located so we could drive to our son's ball games but also to Disney parks. We had a day trip to Daytona Beach and Clearwater both less than 2 hours away. The house was nicely appointed and accommodated us and our guests nicely.

Florida Breeze stay.

5.0 / 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this villa in the wonderful surroundings of the Southern Dunes Golf Club. We were not overlooked and enjoyed the tranquillity by the pool in the sunshine. The villa is very spacious and comfortable. Wifi is free and supplied and they also offer free phone calls to home.
We would strongly recommend this villa. We are going back again next year.

A lovely home from home

5.0 / 5

We have stayed at Southern Dunes before, but this was the best villa by far. Lovely and comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The pool area is lovely and private with a great view of the golf course. Also the lemon tree provided lemons for our G&T's!. Walmart is walking distance from the villa and open 24/7.
Golf course in really great condition, the club house bar area nice and staff friendly, food good.
Management Company that look after the villa were really helpful and even sent is information about how to prepare for hurricane Matthew, which we thought was a lovely thing to do.
I would highly recommend this home from home for your holiday. Thanks Martin and Susan for a wonderful holiday.

Florida Breeze Villa

5.0 / 5

This is the seventh time we've stayed at Martin and Susan's villa and once again we had a great time. Villa's finished to a high standard on a lovely gated community with restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The south facing pool area is very peaceful and relaxing with only the occasional golfer passing by. We look forward our return visit next year.
