Co-owned by 2 Canadian Brothers and their families. This is our vacation property to enjoy year round and share with our family, friends and guests, You! We have made many improvements in our home since we purchased it. We've updated furniture, fixtures, lighting, flooring, linens, and pool/deck furniture for everyone to enjoy. Between our two families, one lives in Eastern Canada and one in Western Canada, we spend about 7 weeks a year in the sun, relaxing and enjoying much needed family time with our kids. We have not gone overboard in our decorating since we have such a variety of people using the house. Florida is not just about Disney. There are so many things to experience and we try something new everytime we are down for a holiday. Just our community alone offers you 18 holes of golf professionally designed and challenging for the avid golfer.

Carrie purchased this house in 2008

Our home is just that, a HOME. It is truly a comfortable, clean, well maintained, well equipped vacation home. It's not just a rental property. A place you can settle back and relax, all day by the pool if you like or to come back to after a long day at the theme parks. You can put your feet up, have a glass of wine by the pool, watch tv, read a book, all in quiet and comfort. With a south facing pool/back yard and beautiful deck with table, chairs and loungers, there's space for everyone to unwind, chill and relax. Super quiet neighbors on either side and no one behind. A stay here will convince you to never stay in a hotel again, not when there is the option for an entire home. You just can't beat it.

When we bought the house, the first thing we noticed compared to so many other homes we'd stayed in or looked to purchase, was the difference in size. Our home had such a great floor plan, it was wide open, bright and inviting. But it lacked color and warmth. We started by removing all the carpet in the living areas (except the bedrooms) and had tile laid throughout. This helps in the hot summer days to cool the house down. We then added color through curtains, new light fixtures, new art work, pillows, new bedspreads and furniture, flat screen tv's, etc. It was an amazing transformation. It felt like home. We have before an after pictures and it's hard to believe it's the same house. We loved the location. Highlands Reserve is a great community in comparison to so many around. It's well manicured lawns and higher end homes in addition to the Golf Course, Tennis courts and community pool make it an attractive alternative to other communities. It's location to Disney was perfect. You can avoid the I-192 and all it's traffic, lights and people, and take the I-4 to exit 67 in about 15 minutes. This takes you right to all the Disney Parks and Downtown Disney hassle free. We also loved that we could be on the road to the Gulf of Mexico in 5 minutes, and be in Tampa in 45 or Clearwater in an hour. We love to drive there for a day at the beach, to take a dinner cruise or just walk along the beach to collect shells. It's an easy, relaxing drive in a day.

TREMENDOUS VALUE!!!

The property was even better than we had expected. It had everything, two dining rooms, 4 bedrooms, TV in every room, Large HDTV in living room, great location (Very close to all the large attractions), very clean, and the great thing about the pool is that it gets the sun the ENTIRE day!! Alot of pools only get partial sunlight, but part of the deck is covered so there is a shaded spot for eating and relaxing. Carrie was very helpful and friendly. Can't say enough about this home. This will be the first place we inquire about next time we go! Don't pass this one up!!!

An amazing stay in this rental that is just west of Orlando and easy access to so much. We chose to just enjoy this home and the heated pool for our family of 5, including our grown kids age 24 and 22, and our 10 year old. We stayed in many nights to enjoy cooking and had all the kitchen amenities we needed. plenty of soft beds, linens, towels, and easy checkout too. My husband and son enjoyed a day of golf at Highlands course and said it was the "best day of the year". we easily traveled to Cocoa Beach one day for my 10 year old to see his first ocean. Thank you for making our holiday vacation so easy and helping me with this bucket list memory. Jeanine H. In Illinois
Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jeanine for your kind review. It was a pleasure to host your family for your "bucket list" holiday! We are so pleased that you had such a great holiday and that staying in our home helped to contribute to that. We always appreciate our guests feedback about their stay. The pool is always the biggest hit for most guests, as it's so relaxing and quiet. It would be a pleasure to host you again for a future holiday if you plan on coming down again to explore the many things Orlando has to offer. Have a great New Year in 2014!

We rented this house for a week long vacation to visit Disney and Universal Studios and could not have been happier with it! The house is very nice, cozy and well equipped - we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. During our time here we had one minor problem pop up, but Carrie and Dave are the best hosts! They were always very quick to respond to my emails, and had things fixed in no time!

For a vacation such as ours, it was perfect - the drive to Disney wasn't bad, and we always looked forward to coming home to relax at what we affectionately now call "The Villa."
Owner's Response: Hi Ryan, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. I am so glad you and your guests enjoyed your time at "the villa". Our goal is to ensure that each guests experience is a positive one and they feel right at home once settled in. We've tried to make it a real "home away from home", not just another place to stay. There are many beautiful homes to choose from in Orlando and we are so glad you choose to stay at ours. We always appreciate feedback so we know what you enjoyed and where we can look for ways to improve our home for ours and our guests use! Should you choose to come back to Orlando for another visit, we would be pleased to host you again! Have a great summer, Carrie

Beautiful House!

This house is located at quiet and beautiful community. It was clean and Well maintained, and felt warm and welcomed. This house is perfect for two media size families to share. Lot of spaces, and two full size washroom. The swimming pool in the backyard is definitely a bonus. Kids had a lot of fun playing water while I am cooking. Driving to Disney is about 20 mins. Shopping and restaurants are only two mins away. The house owner Carrie is very nice, and you can contact her for any questions. The only thing for the renter to know is that you need to buy a bunch of daily needs as soon as you arrive, such as napkin, laundry detergent, dish washer detergent, and shampoo and etc. This I found is not convenience for us. Other than that, in overall, this house is pretty good.

Carrie and Family,

Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home for our first family vacation to Florida. Your home was wonderful! A great place to come home to after a very long day!!

Jordyn and Hayden spent as much time in your pool as they possibly could! It was put to good use.

We hope to use your summer home again sometime. The tips and extra information was so helpful in helping us plan our days here. Thank you for making our trip planning so easy.

We do not want to go home but we must!!

Take Care
