About Jackie Hodges

Both Malcolm and I grew up in Kent (UK) and moved up to Peterborough in Cambridgeshire in the late 1980's. I work part-time in a retail store and Malcolm is a retired computer analyst. I previously worked in the travel industry and my love for travel has continued and we have travelled extensively throughout the USA.

Jackie Hodges purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jackie Hodges chose Highlands Reserve

While we were purchasing our holiday home our ‘wish list’ was quite long and intense. We never dreamt we would meet and exceed all our expectations, but we did. Highlands Reserve had everything we were looking for and to find the perfect villa as well we couldn’t believe our luck.

What makes this villa unique

Having travelled extensively around the USA ourselves we know how important picking the right accommodation is for making a vacation a truly successful and memorable one. Using our own experiences we have put a lot of thought and work into making our vacation home as comfortable as possible to ensure our guest enjoy their stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve only just returned from our trip to the US and this is the first opportunity to say thanks for letting us rent your house. It was very comfortable for what we needed – a quick dose of The Magic and some retail therapy. The children also very much enjoyed the pool and the spa (i’m not sure they have forgiven us yet for only telling them about the Spa on their last day.) Thanks again.

Magnificent Villa with Private South West facing Pool

fantastic villa.

  • 5 of 5

We have used this villa a couple of times now and every time we have arrived it has been clean and extremely we presented . the pool is a lovely size and a great place to relax after a day at the parks.

there is normally 8 of us and the villa still seems spacious .

the villa is well stocked with towels . which is great as some villas we have used have just provided the minimum.

Jackie is great to deal with always helpful and quick at getting back to you.

We would defiantly use this villa again and would highly recommend.

Thank you again Jackie.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We booked 3 weeks at the beginning of April 2017. The booking was easy and all correspondence with Jackie was swift and informative.

The villa was what I can only describe as amazing, it was our home from home for the three weeks. It was lovely and clean and we had everything we needed.

We heated the pool, would recommend this especially for April.

Information pack in the Villa well worth a read as it will save you time getting to and from the parks. Which are only a short drive away if you follow their directions

My only regret was we didn't book for 4 weeks. Will be booking if again

Excellent Vacations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in that villa. We stayed for 16 days last December and January, and we had a great time!

It was my niece's birthday during our stay, and we had breakfast at Chef Mickey and she became Cinderella at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It is a great experience and I am sure she will never forget. I certainly recommend.

It was the first time my parents left Brazil to go the U.S, and they really loved Orlando. A very special day was at the Discovery Cove, we have great pictures!

We were able to do some barbecue at the villa, and we had a great time at the heated pool.

The villa is very comfortable and has plenty of space for 8!

I wish to go back soon!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Everything we could want for two weeks was provided, the bedrooms and living space was lovely. Fantastic master bedroom with big bathroom and walk in shower. Lovely pool in quiet location.

Best of all the villa is ideally positioned for easy access to a great choice of restaurants, 30 minutes from Disney and easy access to International Drive.

We all had a fantastic holiday and thanks for all the pre-information, directions and helpful advice before we left.
