Reunion Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Highlands Reserve, Davenport Central-Disney-Orlando Area, Florida, USA (approximately 30 minutes drive from Orlando International Airport-MCO)

This luxurious and lavishly appointed 3000 square foot villa is perfectly located (just minutes from all the major theme parks including Disney Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, Epcot, Discovery Cove and Blizzard Beach) on US 27. Legoland, Sea World, Wet and Wild are all within easy reach as are the beaches of Daytona on the east coast and Clearwater on the West Coast. The Kennedy Space Centre is easy to get to and a visit is a must – it’s very close to Cocoa Beach and makes a great day out.

Highlands Reserve Golf Club is internationally known. This is a par 72 championship golf course designed by the renowned Michael Dasher. This exquisitely kept course is laid out through citrus groves and pine trees overlooking spectacular conservation areas. You can get reduced golf fees which are available from Highlands Reserve and most of the local golf clubs. There is a children's play area, a communal swimming pool and tennis court.

Our home is very private. At the rear the only thing you overlook is a vast expanse of beautifully kept lawn leading to 40,000 acres of stunning conservation land and pine forests.

On the ground floor there is an elegant, formal dining area, a cinema room with 50' HD TV with sports channel package, a library of DVDs to suit all tastes. Blu ray with iPod dock, surround sound theatre system and reclining seating to complete the amazing experience.

The large family room has a 42' HD TV and lots of comfortable seating with doors leading out to the 30' plus heated pool on an extended deck which faces west so sunshine from mid-morning until spectacular sunsets. There is seating to suit every whim from deeply padded sun loungers to club chairs with ottomans and a dining table to seat 8. There is a gas bbq. The pool has a child safety fence and the patio doors are alarmed. The deck has a lanai for morning to noon shade and the pool offers an enchanting water feature.

There is a carpeted games room with full size professional slate bed pool table, electronic darts, comfortable seating and a 60' TV with DVD player.

The fully equipped kitchen has granite work surfaces and everything you could want for enjoying cooking holiday meals. There is a breakfast nook for those long lazy breakfasts.

Our spacious, light filled 2 storey home has two master suites with en suite bathrooms, one on each floor. The upstairs master suite is lavishly furnished and has a king size four poster bed, 32' HD TV, walk-in closet, ample storage space, his and hers vanity units, corner bath and separate double size walk in shower unit. It has wonderful views of the conservation area and pine forests beyond. The downstairs master suite has a king sized bed, TV, built in closet and plenty of storage.

We love our lavishly furnished and comfortable home. It is so peaceful and tranquil with wonderful opportunities to just chill out and watch the native wildlife. It's so easy to get to all the fun of the theme parks and the wonderful variety of restaurants and of course the shopping.

Feels Like Home!

This lovely home has everything that you would want in a vacation villa (and more!). Plenty of wonderful space for the whole family and all so well kept and clean. Inside, there is nothing left wanting - including a great theatre room! Outside, the pool and deck area is fabulous - our favourite spot. The privacy and conservation views make it an oasis that you don't want to leave. Lots of quality deck furniture and seating/lounging for everyone. The neighbourhood is beautiful and so conveniently located. Grocery stores, restaurants and shopping are all nearby (within walking distance, really, which we did manage to do a few times). Orlando and attractions are a short drive away as well. Mike and Sheila are gracious, helpful and caring hosts; we have so appreciated them. We have loved our stays here and look forward to more!
Owner's Response: We are so very pleased that you enjoyed yourselves and delighted with your kind comments. We agree with you that Sheila and Mike are terrific - we are very lucky. Thank you again for your kind words and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Choosing a place to stay for that special holiday can be tricky, especially when there is such a wide choice available. But if you book this villa you will not be disappointed. What you see is what you get! The floorplan is well-designed, with plenty of space for cooking, dining (casual and formal), entertainment (three wide-screen TVs with comfortable seating, plus Blu-ray player/iPod dock/games room/WiFi etc) and five bedrooms/three bathrooms (one of each on the ground floor). Three of the bedrooms have king-size beds. The pool area is first rate with a large pool, big deck, plenty of chairs and loungers, a gas BBQ and an outdoor dining facility with cooling fans for those balmy evenings! Best of all, though, are the terrific conservation views to the rear - the property is not overlooked. The location is especially ideal for Disney and the new Legoland park - and there are restaurants, pharmacies, supermarkets, gas stations and pubs nearby. Golfers will know that the Highlands Reserve course is highly regarded. The owners have provided a wide range of really thoughtful touches such as DVDs and books for the use of guests and the property is clean and clearly well-maintained. Mike and Sheila could not have been more helpful in helping with our initial reservation and later in checking that we had all we needed. All in all it was a great experience - thank you.

We had a wonderful time at the villa. It was more than what we expected. As soon as we walked into your home we were delighted at how lovely and cosy it was. We have been going to Florida for many years and your home in Highland Reserve is the best place we've stayed at. It’s in a top location as a base to explore the Orlando area as well as the Gulf and Atlantic coast, or beautiful in it’s own right to kick back, relax and enjoy the sun and pool (or maybe even some golf!). We had a fabulous time. The people you have managing your home are doing a great job, it was spotlessly clean and well maintained. We will be sure to contact you both in the future when we return to Florida. Thank you both

Just like Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 3, 2011

We prefer to stay in a villa that has more privacy and conservation to the back and this one fit that perfectly. It was a cold winter but we still saw a wolf, coyotes and an armadillo out back. It looks just like the photos. Actually some of the rooms look better! We are snow birds there for almost 4 months and the only thing we miss is a couple quality recliners but if you aren't staying that long you couldn't ask for more. Other than that the house is equiped with everything needed for a long term stay. Simple things like window dressings make it feel like home. It was clean and well maintained and any problems were dealt with courteously and promptly thanks to Mike and Sheila. We have rented through Mike and Sheila for the second year now and where they go we would go. They are a huge plus for any villa. The pool area is great if you love the sun. Large deck and plenty of chairs and tables with sun all day. Also, a big plus is this villa has a furnace for the upstairs and down so the temperature is easy to control. Never a hot bedroom upstairs!! So much glass in the great room its like being part of the outdoors. Plus you can just about control the temperature with those.... Open the blinds in the morning and then closed to keep the heat out in the afternoon the villa stays very pleasant. You are five minutes from a grocery store, restaurants, pharmacies and a lovely new mall, Posner Park, the I-4 and 3 miles from the main strip 192. You can also get to either ocean beach in a little over an hour. Don't forget Plant City. A wonderful place to buy all your fruits, veggies, honey, etc. Excellent fresh quality and very reasonable. Just off exit 17 on I-4. We would definately give this a thumbs up. The only thing that I don't like is the landscaping isn't kept as well as the developments we were in before. For me that is part of the total package. The only reason we wouldn't recommend it to everyone is that we are coming back and don't want it to get worn out!! Seriously, it is a home we would recommend to anyone. It is everything it says it is. See you in December...
Owner's Response: Our thanks to the Snowbirds who, our management company, Sheila and Mike - describe as the perfect guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in December.

It is a great pleasure to offer our home to people who enjoy it as much as we do. We believe the area to be idyllic offering both a closeness to nature and within easy reach of all that Florida offers.

Perfection

When we booked this house we were hopeful that it would be nice but it was just perfect. From the stunning cinema room with surround sound and recliner chairs to the comfortable sofas and great beds this house was everything you could possible want.

The view over from the pool across the lawns to reserve were great and it was just as tranquil as described.

There is a short drive to the local stores and within an easy drive of Disney and downtown Orlando it was am ideal location to base ourselves and the kids.
