About Jeff Smith

The owners are a family from England who live in the small rural location of Lowerfold, which nestles in the hills of the Pennines about 20 miles from Manchester.

Jeff Smith purchased this house in 2007

Why Jeff Smith chose Highlands Reserve

They have been coming to Florida for almost 20 years before purchasing the home on Highlands Reserve. What struck them immediately was the excellence of the community and its stunning location. There is only one neighboring property and unobstructed views of the conservation area to the rear and the golf course to the front. Being situated at the rear of the community the home offers total peace and tranquility.

Practically Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough nice things about our stay here the first week of March. Our family of 9 was very comfortable and spread out in this huge and gorgeous home. It is exactly as pictured and I was very excited as I explored the home the day we arrived. The welcome basket was such a nice touch. The decor and furnishings were beautiful and all the beds were very comfortable. There was an issue with the heat kicking on unnecessarily the day we arrived and once we called to inquire about it, it was taken care of within the hour. Very polite and professional staff, couldn't have asked for better service. We are from Kentucky, so the massive TV and comfortable couches were an added bonus for watching two very important basketball games during our stay (Go Cats!) The home was a perfect place for some of our local extended family to visit us during our stay. We were all able to visit together without feeling crowded or having to separate into different areas of the home. In fact, the able seating of the living room and openness to the kitchen was the deciding factor for choosing your home for our stay. The neighborhood is so pretty and very quiet as it is across from the golf course and backs up to the reserve. Pleasant for unwinding during a hectic week in the Disney parks. Also, the pool and hot tub were very inviting after long days at Disney! We are so happy we found you and were able to stay in your home.

Highly recommend this beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Villa for almost four weeks & could happily have stayed forever. It was so big & spacious while being very comfortable. The photos show it exactly as it is.

One of the big attractions for us was the Pool Table within the house (rather than in a garage that has no air-conditioning) this meant that it was in use almost every day or evening & was a great space to cool down for the kids.

The massive TV was also very welcome, we brought our own Apple TV box & were able to connect it up to TV to watch Movies, Netflix or stream from our iPad. We had a few 'movie nights' & the kids especially loved the 3 large sofas with reclining seats.

The pool & hot-tub were also fabulous & the large deck had plenty of space for us all. We spent many a day just swimming, reading under the Lanai & Barbequeing at night. BLISS!

The property is very close to the I4 so it's very easy to find your way around to get to the parks or shopping. As it looks over the conservation area at the back it's so peaceful when you get home at night.

We found a great WaterSports place only 20mins away, Buena Vista WaterSports & had a few great afternoons on the Lake waterskiing & tubing.

Celebration Town Centre is only 15mins away & is a must-visit with some lovely restaurants.

My only downside to this house was the noises at night...but it's the same in all the houses. If you want a lovely pool, a great hot-tub & air-conditioning then those noises come as part of that...and you do get used to them as time goes on. I hate to be in any-way negative about it & that was only a small thing.

The Berry Town Centre next door is very convenient & the Bamboo Wok & Mia Pizza are both fab (except they don't deliver), as is the Applebee's. We called in there one night at 11pm on way back from SeaWorld to discover they are open til 2am! Kids loved their boneless wings!!

From our first email & subsequent phonecall to Jeff, to meeting with Kevin & Elaine...and email responses from them during our stay...everything went so smoothly & if I was going back to Florida I would book well in advance to get this fabulous Villa again. I booked almost a year in advance & got a very good price. If you can't get this villa try for another on Prestwick Drive. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Thank you so much for a holiday we will never forget!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My apologies for taking so long to thank you for the wonderful experience we had staying in your home! From the moment we arrived, we never stopped being impressed...the house is gorgeous inside and out, so very comfortable, and very, very clean...we truly hated to go home. I'm hoping that in the future, we'll be able to stay again! Thanks again Jeff...for being so friendly, and helpful making our family vacation flow! We had an awesome time!

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at your home! It's exactly as pictured and described and we were not disappointed when we walked in! What I did notice was the housewarming gifts (which meant I didn't have to run to the store immediately even though it's only minutes away!) and how clean the home was! Great spacious home, pool and hot tub! You've thought of everything and your management team was terrific! You will need a car to get around but it's worth being a little further away! Thank you!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home less than 20 miles from Disney. Lots of activities including golf, table tennis, and billiards kept my three sons busy all week. This home is perfect for family gatherings. Very comfortable with a ton of space. My wife loved the decor.

Owner's Response: Hi. Thank you very much for your review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay. It means so much to us. You make an interesting comment about the decor. We have tried to incorporate the best of American and English influence. If you said it was 'mid Atlantic' we would be quietly satified! Incidentally, I think you meant 20 minutes from Disney, not 20 miles.
