We had a great stay in this villa. The villa itself was spacious and beautifully presented in an ideal location situated close to all the Disney parks. We went to a lot of the places Rosalyn recommended including Mannys Chop House which was lovely and reasonably priced. The beds were soo comfortable and just what we needed after the amount of walking we had done throughout the day. The children loved the pool and would recommend paying for it to be heated! Overall we would highly recommend and would be happy to stay again!! Thank you!
Overall, we had a good stay at this property. However, the location so close to Sandmine Road was a problem for us because of the noise. This was the first thing we noticed on our first night. We had difficulty sleeping because of all the truck traffic, which began at about 4 AM and was quite constant and very loud. Our son came to visit for two weeks, and he works from home. His first instinct was that he was not going to be able to work because of the distraction, but he stayed and made the best of it. It is a nice house, close to grocery store and restaurants; but we probably will not stay there again because of the above problem. This would probably not be a problem for a larger family with children. We're not as used to noise as we used to be.
This villa is a wonderful place to stay and ideally located on Highland's Reserve. It's local to supermarkets and restaurants and convenient for the parks. The villa itself is immaculate and it's amenities first class. We have been to Florida many, many times and the presentation of this villa was impeccable. John and Rosalyn were very pleasant to deal with. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this villa, it is really clean and comfortable, felt like home from home and the location is superb. My daughter and her partner stayed with us for two weeks over Christmas and New Year and they equally enjoyed their stay. It is a five minute walk to Publix supermarket, bars and restaurants and just a few more to Applebee's. Highlands Reserve is a great golf course and a pleasure to play, loads more in a short drive. Near to Disney, universal and Seaworld makes this a great location. We hope to be able to return before too long. Recommended.
We hope to go again in the future.
We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in April 2013. This is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. Very spacious and clean. It accommodated 2 families perfectly. The use of the pool was great and the Highlands reserve is a lovely surroundings-the golf course is stunning and access to tennis and an outdoor pool. Very convenient for all parks, shops, Orlando and the coast. The facilities in the villa are great and made for a very easy holiday. We would love to go back to this villa if we went back to Florida. Thank you!

This was our second visit to the Villa and it cannot be recommended enough. Once again, the Villa was very clean and tidy. We had another thoroughly enjoyable stay here and look forward to returning in 2013 for our 3rd stay (already booked it, it was that good).
