Located in a quiet, secluded setting; with backing behind a conservation area of pristine natural Florida woodlands. Tranquility is surrounded by expansive lawns and picturesque palms. It is also situated on one of the larger, most private sites in all of Highlands Reserve.

In addition to the lavish interior, the exterior of the home is all about luxury!

Tranquility offers a large screened-in pool deck with a beautiful swimming pool, a private free-standing hot tub, posh padded deck furniture and a full-size gas/electric grille. (Pool heating can be arranged at extra cost so that you can always rely on a pleasantly warm swim in any season.) We keep the landscaping décor up to meet the high expectations of our guests.

Just imagine chilling and grilling by the pool after an exciting day at one of the many Orlando-Area theme parks! Then, put the kids to bed and take a soothing dip in the hot tub. It's your vacation, and at Tranquility, you'll find everything you need to relax and pamper yourself!

MORE ABOUT OUR GREAT LOCATION IN HIGHLANDS RESERVE:

Nestled amongst the orange groves of the gently rolling central Florida countryside, Highlands Reserve is just 12 miles southwest of Disney World and is considered to be one of the most prestigious resorts in the Disney area. This beautiful resort features a stunning 18-hole championship golf course, communal pool, tennis courts and a kid’s playground.

While Tranquility offers seclusion and privacy, everything you need to make the most of your stay is very, very close by. A short walk brings you to Berry Town Center with a Publix supermarket, shops, hairdresser, a beauty spa, restaurants, banks and more. And, Interstate 4 (I-4) is a mere 5 minutes away, making all of Florida easily accessible if you should decide to explore the Sunshine State by car!

Just couple of comments from recent guests:

“Fantastic - Best Vacation Rental”

5 of 5 stars

All I can say is FANTASTIC! But since you are reading my review you are expecting more. So here are the details.

Most important we were looking for a rental that was handicapped accessible. As advertised, the entrance, the kitchen, master bedroom, the bathroom, shower and pool were all accessible. The shower and bath were fully equipped with hand rails, seats, and shower wand. The shower was very large so as care giver there was no problem helping. But the biggest joy was the pool had a lift which allowed my wife to access the pool every day. If was very safe and easy to use and she really enjoyed swimming for the first time in years.

The rest of the property, what can I say. The biggest surprise was a flat screed TV in all the bedrooms and a monster HD flat screen in the living room. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were able to cook breakfast everyday and make snacks in the evening.

Our normal day was pool at 6:00 AM, off to nearby parks by 9:00, then back home in the evening to swim until midnight.

This rental was base camp for the best Florida vacation ever. I will be returning and am also recommending this property to all my friends.

My sincere thanks to Judy and Ivan Berry for allowing us to rent this fine home.

Stay at your home was wonderful. My daughter is confined to a wheelchair and she was able to care for herself because your attention to detail was so good. All of us enjoyed every aspect of your home.

About The Owner

Hi We're Ivan, Judy, Marcus, Adam and Neisha - the Merry Berrys. We live in Banbridge, about 30 miles south of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Ivan is a Farmer and I'm a dentist and the kids are still all at school although Marcus hopes to go to Uni next year. We love to visit Florida every year and we also have rental properties in France, Germany and the UK.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Davenport

In 2001, I was quite ill and off work for some time and we had holidayed in Florida for several years and we thought it might be an idea to have our own home from home in Florida. We stayed in Highlands Reserve for a vacation and liked the community. Over the time of our holiday we visited loads of new developments with potential but we really wanted something ready to go. We walked into what is now our Florida Home and knew it was the one - it is all on one level, which is good for Ivan, we could look out thru the windows and no one was looking back at us from a house behind and it just felt right!!! When we investigated more the community is ideally situated, close enough to the parks without being overcome by Disney etc, just an hour from the beaches which we love and so handy for everything. We enjoy the magic of Orlando here and we hope you will too Welcome to our Escape to Orlando.

The Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our wonderful vacation at the Merry Berry Florida home was just spectacular! From the first moment of contact with Judy, we had a perfect vacation. No wrinkles in any of our plans, and our expectations were more than met. Travelling with a person in a wheelchair is stressful to say the least, and it was terrific to arrive "home" to our vacation house late at night and see how perfect it was for us. The pool lights were on, the backdrop of the "forest"

as we called it, was a lovely, relaxing setting to welcome us. We found everything we needed, from a kitchen that was well equipped to lovely linens for all the beds. We enjoyed the hot tub, which was hot, the pool which we were in everyday, and night! The trees were a beautiful background, with many birds that we watched and listened to when we were outside. The master bedroom and bathroom were perfect for the needs of our daughter, who uses a power wheelchair. Having the Hoyer lift right there was better than perfect.

We enjoyed the games room, which was turned into a Man Cave for our son, who loved having his own space with such great amenities!

The location of the house was great for all of our needs. We were two minutes from the Publix grocery store, and a few other services, like a bank, a gas station, restaurants, a liquor store, a pharmacy, a dollar store.....just everything you need to get yourself squared away when you first arrive, until you figure out where everything else is located.

The management team, of Helen and Tom, were just wonderful. They responded to all of our calls when we needed to sort things out.(like the breaker on the hot tub went, and Tom came over immediately ..). The pool crew took care of all the pool and hot tub needs.

We would not hesitate to return to this wonderful home. Everything was just Super-Dee-Duper!

Thank you to the Berry family for your great hospitality.

Great title

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home in Orlando. Before our trip, I had numerous email discussions with the owner which were delightful and extremely helpful. The owner was answered immediately when I had any concerns or questions. The listing of the home perfectly matched what we found. Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy the pool or the hot tub, because there was just no time.

The place is very close to both Disney World and Universal Studios. I would recommend this vacation home to handicapped travelers and I will certainly stay there again. It was was wonderful to be in a wheelchair and stay so close to where wanted to b

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home for our vacation in June. The house was very spacious, clean and well equipped. We had 6 people in our group and each person had plenty of room to relax and enjoy their stay! All 3 bathrooms were roomy and very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. The washer and dryer were excellent and we all thoroughly appreciated them! The pool was in excellent condition, with plenty of room and privacy. The neighborhood was very safe and friendly. We can't wait to go back to this home again!

This is not tranquility nor luxury

  • 3 of 5

Pool area in this home is very loud. Tranquility does not come to mind when sitting outside. Behind the trees is a busy 4 lane highway with heavy traffic day and night. In our opinion the advertisement is misleading when it comes to the description of the backyard/pool situation.

The home is average in our opinion. I would not recommend it based on the pool situation.

Our Florida holiday 2010

  • 5 of 5

An excellent villa from which we based our Florida 2010 holiday. The kids loved the larger than average sized pool, and the whole family really enjoyed the hot tub !

The living accommodation was very spacious especially the main bedroom and ensuite !

The open plan kitchen, kitchen table and living room was perfect for relaxing with the whole family during the day and evenings.

The games room was very popular, and the pool table, fussball table, air hockey and dartboard were all used daily !!

A great villa, one which we would love to return to in the future.
