Nice walking neighborhood, very little traffic, mostly easy terrain..go up to Hide Away Hill if you like more challenge or walk down to the bottom of the falls if you want burning buns.

About Neil Van Hoogen

We came to the Highlands area in 1996 from Palm Beach County Florida after retiring (Show & Sell publications). We fell in love with the area and became 'accidental hands on developers' of Falling Waters a fifty two acre community....long story. We attend Community Bible Church, (one of the highlights of the area), where Paula sings in the choir. We keep busy taking care of the development...mowing, blowing leaves, weed whacking, planting flowers etc. We like to take short trips in our 5th wheel when we can.

Neil Van Hoogen purchased this apartment in 1998

Beautiful, peaceful, private surroundings leading to a lovely carriage house apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Paula and Neil, diligently prepare for their guests to have a most pleasant stay.... Paula's attention to detail makes one feel most welcomed.... the carriage house apartment is sorta like being in an adult tree house :)) as beautiful, mature trees surround the property.... the bedding is just perfect and covered with lovely linens.... the whole area just felt incredibly fresh and clean.... staying in their Nest for Two far exceeded what we would have experienced in a traditional, "commercial" inn.... it really is the perfect place to unplug....

They call it a nest; I call it a luxury safari tent

  • 5 of 5

If silence is the new luxury, you'll get it here in a 360 beautiful surround.

Everything was lovely and useful. Paula and Neil are the best hosts. Always available for good answers to questions. The Highlands is like a retreat with hiking and outdoor activities galore. Zip lining was a gas, as was watching bear off the balcony.

Quiet, peaceful, and private

  • 5 of 5

The property was quiet, peaceful, and private. As we approached the property, we were greeted by a mother bear and two cubs. We enjoyed sitting on the deck each night as the sun went down. The "nest for two" was cozy and included everything needed for a relaxing break. Great place to get away!

Quiet getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved the seclusion and the quiet surroundings. Although there was construction of a new home nearby we must have timed the stay perfectly because there was no loud work going on for most of the stay. The upscale amenities, bedding and appliances in the room were perfect. I would definitely stay here again. Better than going to any of the local lodges or hotels!
