Great Condos at Mystic Dunes Resort In Kissimmee, FL

Driving into the Mystic Dunes Resort and Golf Club is impressive. There is a manned gate attendant (that always makes you feel more secure doesn’t it?) and with the major speed bumps mountains, you have to go slow through the complex.  It is large with several pools and all entangled with a golf course.

We were on the 2nd floor of building 11.

We walked into a nice cool condo that was really large.  The tile floor was nice, it just felt cleaner than carpet.

There was a dining room table large enough for most families and an entire mirrored wall that gave the room even a larger feel.

There was a nice size kitchen with a dishwasher, coffee maker (and coffee for 2 days) full size refrigerator and all the dishes we needed.

Check out the bathroom in the master suit.

The room Elise stayed had two double beds and a TV.  It had a window that was right next to the front of the condo by the walk way.  That was one thing I didn’t really like. My friend stayed with us the first two nights and stayed in that room with Elise, but the 3rd night she slept by herself in there and it made me just a bit uncomfortable to be on the other side of this large condo and have her right by the front door and window where everyone walked.  But of course everything was fine and we both slept great.

The lani was very nice with a table and four chairs that overlooked one of the golf course ponds. mystic dunes resort

This was our favorite pool, although we never did get a chance to use it.  We were just too busy.  But doesn’t it look awesome?  There were cabanas you could rent and when we stopped by to take this picture it sounded like they were conducting an aerobics class.

The Mystic Dunes is located only a couple miles away from Route 4, which is the main way to get to all of the major theme parks. It would be an idea place for a couple, especially if you love to golf, or a family.  If you would get a unit like we had (flat in a building with 3 floors), I would recommend a 3rd floor condo.  We had someone moving into the unit above us one night at around MN (at least I think that was what was going on). There were kids running, and a lot of noise.  I think because the floors are tile and not carpet, you hear a lot more than you might in other condos.  So if I had children I would want to be sure they were quiet to be considerate of others.  I think the resort is kid friendly, but I can also tell it gives a feel that if you are a couple without children with you, you wouldn’t feel over whelmed by children either.  Nice combination.

Everything was extremely clean and crisp. You didn’t get any of the hibbie- jibbie feel that some places can give you.

Our stay was not comped, but we did receive a discounted media rate.  All the opinions and pictures are my own.

    Sandy, thanks for the photos. Unfortunately, you were given the “media” suite knowing that you were going to publish photos and get media publicity. We stayed at Mystic Dunes and the suite were put in was ok, but not as pictured in yours. Your suite was the one I was shown during our marketing presentation, where they tried to get us to buy point into the Diamond system. I’m afraid that people will see your photos, book a vacation there, be put in the regular suites they have (some of which are in terrible shape), and leave disenchanted and then loose confidence in your postings. We still managed to have fun at Mystic Dunes, but I’m just trying to make sure that the public is aware that there are two tiers of suites in the resort, and they are assigned as management sees fit, but that is not advertised as needed.

    John I really appreciate your comments so that others might dig a bit deeper if they book a trip here. Yes, that would be a bit of a disappointment. Thanks for the pictures you sent me. It appeared the units were similar on many levels. It looked like the living room set up was pretty much the same with the dining table, mirrored wall and bookcase. The kitchen picture you shared did show an older green countertop, some peeling paint on the floorboard and if I remember the refrigerator not looking so nice. You also sent me a picture of one of the showers that needed some re-caulking around the edges and didn’t look pristine.
    The grounds are still beautiful and pools amazing though. I am not a golfer, but the course looked nice too.

  3. First off I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior
    to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

  4. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and
    sources back to your webpage? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would
    genuinely benefit from some of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks a lot!
