Perfect, beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and tidy, decorated beautifully and was fully equipped with everything we could have possibly wanted. My son's used a bedroom each, whilst myself and my husband used the main bedroom - all perfect. The boys used the games room most evenings. Used the pool only a handful of times as so busy at the parks, but when they did, they thought it was fab. The pool was checked/cleaned regularly.

Had the best time ever.

Great Home! Very Well Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, along with my in-laws, came to Orlando for my son's Disney performance as well as for a vacation visit of Disney and Universal Studios from July 6 to 14. The home is located in a reserve that surrounds a golf course. The community is quiet and a good enough size to obtain a good walk around. It is also about 15 to 25 minutes from Disney depending on traffic. There is a Publix literally less than a mile away as well as a CVS.

As far as the home, good size for my family of four and two in-laws. Very well stocked with towels and kitchen items. TV's with cable in every room. The game room is hot in the afternoon, but the pool is literally there to cool off in.

Highly recommend!

Wonderful home close to many attractions.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and tastefully decorated. We had gone to many of the Disney parks that were a very short drive away. It was wonderful to take a relaxing swim after a long hot day at the parks. We also went to discovery cove which I would highly recommend.

Poppy's Villa

  • 5 of 5

May 2016

We had a wonderful time in Orlando, made especially lovely being able to stay in Poppy's Villa. The Villa is clean and everything is catered for. We have stayed in many villas/condo's in the area and this is most definitely one of the best.

The games room is outstanding for those travellers with children, The private, enclosed garden is a real bonus.

There was plenty of clean towels, bedding and everything else..........

TVs in every room were excellent.

Highlands Reserve is great if you play golf, lovely staff, superb course (not too difficult or expensive). Highlands Reserve Community is outstanding!

Only one slight problem for us was that the BBQ has to be used out of the covered area, therefore if it rains, NO BBQ!

Would highly recommend this accommodation. Darilyn the owner is really helpful and ensures that useful information is provided.

Thank you Darilyn.

Comfortable and inviting villa

  • 5 of 5

Loved this villa. Clean, comfortable, well appointed, and ideally situated for Disney and Universal. Highland Reserve is a great place to stay in, and this villa was just right for us. Could not fault it. The booking experience, payment handling, and entry details were all done well and we had no issues. The swimming pool was wonderful and warm, and we had the sun on it until later in the afternoon. Would absolutely return to this villa. Many thanks for making it available.

About Darilyn DiPietro

We have been coming down to Florida for thirty years. Florida is like our second home. To say we love it is an understatement. We were very fortunate that this Villa became available to us. We want other families to enjoy their stay here as much as we do. After staying in hotels in the area with our family for many years, we can tell you that having your own house to stretch out in is the best. You save on meals and beverages and your children are more relaxed making you more relaxed. Have fun enjoy your family and friends enjoy our Villa, but please take care of it for us. Love, Live, and be free.

Darilyn DiPietro purchased this villa in 2010

Why Darilyn DiPietro chose Highlands Reserve

Our Villa is stocked with linens and tools for the kitchen more so than most. We pride ourselves in what we offer for the price. It is not just beds and TV's. It's a Home for you to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

Private fenced in yard with covered pool area. Game room for you and the kids. The grocery store is a mile away and you don't have to go on the highway to get to it. Close to many restaurants stores, and attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner
