About Steven Blanshard

We are Steven & Tracey and we live in the UK with our young daughter.

We are proud to be one of the original purchasers at High Grove and over the years have seen it flourish into a first class and well maintained resort.

We would be delighted to welcome you to our home

Thank you for taking the time to look at 'South View'

Best wishes

Steven and Tracey

Steven Blanshard purchased this villa in 2004

Why Steven Blanshard chose Clermont Area

Our home offers the perfect location for everything Florida has to offer!

What makes this villa unique

We chose 'South View' for a number of reasons which combined, offered a fantastic all round package :-

Corner lot (not Community common) - added space and privacy

No rear neighbours so not overlooked - enjoying pleasant views

Genuinely South Facing - all day sun

Huge deck - the ONLY villa at High Grove that had the deck extended providing maximum comfort and enjoyment

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are more than happy to write a review, we have been to Orlando several times & your villa was by far the best we have stayed in. We would love to book again but I see next August is, sadly for us, already booked.

We had a slight issue with a smoke alarm but your Management Company handled it quickly & efficiently & we were very happy that they stored our

suitcases whilst we went to New York.

Everything was very clean & comfortable. Washing machine was fantastic, I want one!!

Great Villa, great facilities.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time in Florida, our second time at High Grove. This was by far the best villa we have stayed in.

We found the villa to be very clean with great facilities. Many hours was spent by the family in the games room at the end of a long day.

Location was ideal, as It was very close to all the Disney parks and not too far from universal. Walmart and many restaurants close by too.

Tracey has been fantastic from the outset. She was helpful both by email and phone, answering all of our questions and queries we that had. She always responded straight away. Also the management company were great too and very helpful.

We would highly recommend Tracey and her villa Southview.

Fantastic villa in a great location for parks and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks during August and had a fantastic family holiday. We had stayed on the community before but this was our first time in this villa. The community is gated and very well looked after, it is well positioned for main parks (about 15 or 20 mins from Disney) so driving is easy. The villa itself is well proportioned with plenty of space for family. Pool area is larger then most other villas and it was south facing so had lots of sun. The games room is fantastic as has good things for kids to do but also has a telly to keep kids entertained. Would thoroughly recommend this villa and we will hopefully stay again soon.

Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Real home from home - very clean and everything needed for a great holiday. Great location - near on 192 and Disney. The children loved the swimming pool and the husband loved the pool table! Great communication throughout from Tracey. We are planning on returning in the future - will recommend to family and friends.

A lovely, well-appointed villa on a spacious plot with open views from its south-facing sun deck. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner gave excellent customer service. The games room offered extra amenities and the cable TV provided a full programme for our Premiere League interests. Apart from the malls and parks, some of our favourite day trips were to Mount Dora, Winter Garden Village, International Drive, Cocoa Beach Pier, Kennedy Space Centre, Homossasa Springs State Park (manatees,) and Tampa Bay. Plus, an occasional two-minute evening stroll took us to the very friendly, nearby Irish pub, Devenney's. We hope to stay in this villa again and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Holiday? SOUTH VIEW!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we booked a villa in Florida... AND WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!

The villa is located on the 'High Grove' resort. This is a beautiful, well-kept and gated community.

The location of the resort is just perfect, the big parks, outlets and malls are within half an hour drive. Atlantic ocean? 1hr+ drive. Gulf of Mexico? 1hr+drive

Hop straight on the 192 -no further introduction needed-

Tracey was very helpful, perfect when you are experiencing a -first time villa booking-

Also providing coupons during our stay at the villa.

The villa is perfection, everything needed was right there ready to use.

Read the reviews below.. All of them are spot-on!!!!

We absolutely loved our stay and will higly recommend it to everyone.

Untill next time!! -* * * * *-

There was loads of room for everyone , it was comfortable , and had everything we could possibly want for our stay . We had a lovely stay and nothing was too much trouble for the owners , even sending us discount coupons for local restaurants which came in very useful , would definitely use again
