Dianne & Ron,

My family and I can't say enough about your beautiful villa. Our stay was everything we could have hoped for and then some! Your villa was very spacious and clean. My family enjoyed the pool every day we were there and our kids are already talking about how much they miss it. I would like to thank you for making our family vacation such a blast!! We hope to visit again in the future.

Thanks!!!

Beautiful villa, excellent location, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Family really enjoyed this villa as it had all the amenities we needed. It is also within walking distance of restaurants and bars which is unusual for Florida.

All bedrooms were very clean and well decorated. We all loved the pool and spa area and it provided plenty privacy. Been to Highland Reserve area a number of times now and this was the best villa so far

  • 5 of 5

This property was great. The manager lives right down the street and stopped by to make sure everything was good. We had 2 adults and 5 kids and were there for 7 days. 4 days we stayed right at the house. I would recommend this to anyone.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at your beautiful home for 2 weeks in March. Our children, grandchildren & friends enjoyed every day of beautiful weather, swimming in the pool, spa & wonderful barbecued meals on the lanai. It was everything we could have hoped for. We are already talking about another vacation & would highly recommend your home to anyone. Thanks so much for sharing it.
