We've stayed at Highlands Reserve on numerous occasions & this is, in our opinion, the nicest villa we've rented. It's in a great location, the view over the golf course is a definite plus & the accommodation was laid out really well. Would definitely recommend!
John, the owner was very helpful, giving us precise directions from the airport to his Villa, and also hints on where to get our basics when we arrived early evening.
Everything was in order when we arrived. We had never taken a Villa holiday before so was pleasantly surprised how good this was. It is reasonably situated to the Disney parks, and the other surrounding attractions were within easy driving distance from the Villa.
Our grandchildren loved the pool, as we did.
We loved all the theme parks and shopping, John did advise us to bring an empty suitcase: recommended.
The only downside to Orlando in general was the "junk" food on offer, but as we were on holiday, we did not want to cook. This is not a reflection onthe villa as it has everything you need, including a washing machine and tumble dryer.
I would highly recomend this property for families for a really full and good holiday in Florida.
We stayed here in Sept/Oct 2010 with our two daughters aged 17 and 20.
This was our first visit to the States and our first independantly organised holiday so we were grateful to John, the villa owner, for all his helpful advice and information before we arrived.
We were delighted with the cleanliness of the villa and all the amenities.
The location is ideal for visiting the nearby theme parks.
The villa looks out onto the golf course at the rear which was fairly quite during our stay. I had a round on the the course myself which was lovely and good value at around £50 for a round, hire of clubs and buggy. My non-golfing wife had a great time driving the buggy!
We had a minor hiccup when we arrived as the access code John had given us didn't work (not Johns fault - an oversite by the management company). The friendly next door neighbour kindly got the correct code for us.
The villa has an internet connection which was very useful (we took our laptop) but is not set up for wireless so it meant sitting on a breakfast stool at the kitchen worktop.
We had a fabulous holiday and the villa contributed largely to this and we would highly recommend this villa to anyone.
Stayed at the villa from October 8th to October 22nd and had a fantastic time. The villa is situated close to disney and the I4 for Universal and Sea World.
The villa had everything we could hae asked for and the large screen Tv kept the kids occupied in the mornings. Travelling with two toddlers It was a great comfort having the safety net around the pool.
All in all a fantastic villa which helped make it a dfantastic holiday
My family and I have just returned from an unexpectedly long stay in this super villa. We had booked to stay a week but thanks to some volcanic activity we stayed on for two...fortunately it's a lovely place so we were more than happy to extend our trip.
The villa is exactly like the photos, clean, simple and spacious with everything you could need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The kitchen is well equipped (particularly liked the ice machine) and good for cooking if you don't want to eat out every night. The proximity of the golf course is a bonus as the open outlook really adds to the feeling of peace and quiet, and while some of the golfers could use a little practice on their long game, they were a universally friendly bunch.
The pool was lovely and warm ( we paid for heat and would definitely recommend that in the cooler parts of the year) and well maintained. The deck is south facing so we had sun all day and the children were almost never out of the water.
We were travelling with a seven year old and a five year old who were thrilled to be able to watch cartoons in their own bedrooms. We purposely chose a villa without access to a Wii or play station as we wanted a bit of a break from the usual technology...this worked out well, as the children spent a lot of time outside instead. However, as our trip was disrupted by the volcano and we had to do a lot of re-scheduling, WiFi would have come in really handy.
The management company were great...responsive, helpful and pleasant to deal with, as is John, the owner. The arrangements were very informal and everything was just as he said it would be.
We'd stayed in the Davenport area before and appreciate it for its peace and quiet. If you're looking for lots of hustle and bustle, or to be able to fall out of bed and straight into the theme parks it might be wiser to stay a little closer to Kissimmee as traffic can make the journey to the parks a little longer than expected (40 minutes to Universal).
There are plenty of restaurants nearby, an amazingly convenient and well stocked supermarket on the doorstep, and my favourite...a Super Target... about 10 minutes drive away.
All in all, this is a great place to take a break from things. I would wholeheartedly recommend the villa and would definitely go back.
All 6 of us had a wonderful holiday that we will never forget. The villa was perfect and exactly as it says on the website. It was clean and we found everything we needed. John, the owner, was fabulous and responded quickly to all my questions (and there was a lot!) prior to us going. It was a trip of a lifetime and one we wanted to make sure was right.
We found we were close enough to disney and all the attractions to enjoy them yet far enough away to have the peace and quiet when we wanted it. Great supermarket is nearby and an abundance of restaurants and shops. I would say though that you do need a car to get about but I think that is a 'given' in the US.
The villa itself had everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We loved the dishwasher and the large fridge freezer - It made eating-in a pleasure. The children thought it was 'awesome' to have a TV in all the bedrooms and meant they could chill out on our less busy days.
My husband played 3 rounds of golf on the course in the back garden! He thoroughly enjoyed it and, of course, the weather was great.
All in all, I would highly recommend this villa to anyone thinking of going to Florida. John was a pleasure and the villa left no room for disappointment.
Can't wait to go back......
