Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed here for 17 nights and had a great time. The villa has everything you need to make for a fantastic stay. Highlands Reserve is a great location for all the parks, and there's plenty of restaurants close by. Looking forward to returning in a couple of years

Beautiful home and beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful week in this beautiful home and would have scored this home 5 star but for some minor imperfections! The house is spotless and beautifully furnished, the rooms are spacious with 5 great bedrooms with large beds throughout. Large pool and lots of outside space overlooking quiet golf course. Great kitchen and white goods, plenty of dining pieces and great furniture. Altogether a great rental home. Only reasons I can't give it 5 stars were minor, a broken wardrobe door (fixed quickly after reporting), several lamps where the bulbs were blown, kitchen tap which had seen better days, and equipment in play room/garage which despite several reviews highlighting them was still broken. Must not make it sound bad as everything else was wonderful and would have given 4.5 stars if this site allowed it. I can recommend it highly in the assumption that these are an easy fix for the owners! Great stay and very handy for all the important places in Orlando, Kissimmee and Celebration!! Thanks to owners for use of your lovely house but don't let the small stuff let you down! We are likely to return next time.

Large property with large pool

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed many times in villas in Florida over the years but never as such a large group - 9 adults. To cater for so many we needed a large villa, this villa didn't disappoint. There was plenty of room for everyone, the pool was large enough for us all to enjoy at the end of the exhausting theme park days.

The games room provided the competitive entertainment required by us all, however, this was looking a little tired with broken pool cues, flat basketballs, lack of darts and a broken air hockey when we arrived, it was soon replaced by Helen and everyone was happy again!

I was a little disappointed at the lack of a welcome pack, after a very long journey from the UK a cup of tea would've been very welcome, however, the fridge and cupboards were completely devoid of any refreshments, also cleaning products were also missing. This meant that after 24 hours travelling we had to venture out again to find the local supermarket ( fortunately near by) for basic essentials - other villas have provided a basic pack (tea, coffee, milk, eggs, bread, juice, couple of dishwasher tablets, bin liner etc) just to keep us going to the next morning.

Eating together was difficult with so many, there wasn't enough chairs for us all to sit together, so it was either a shift meal system or separate tables.

Our journey into Disney was very easy, but the journey to Universal wasn't enjoyable at all, often taking 45 mins due to sheer amount of traffic, accidents and road works.

We were unlucky enough to be broken into on our second night, fortunately nothing was taken, but it did shake us up for a couple of days and made us more security conscious. Helen was really supportive and reassuring, securing our villa further such that we were happy to leave it.

The support we got from the property managers was excellent - any problem was quickly resolved - missing tennis court/ pool key, games room equipment, loss of Internet and security.

Nevertheless, we had a fantastic time, one of our best holidays so far, we overcame all the downs quickly, we'll all return to Florida - without a doubt!

Owner's Response: Hi Helen Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, which is always useful. Angela and I are both pleased that you enjoyed your stay, despite the break in (this was the first such attempt since we acquired the villa in 2011) I appreciate the chance to be able to respond to the specific points that you have raised. Re the games room, we do take care to provide a home from home, and have set up a well featured games room, that our own 3 children very much enjoy. Unfortunately we do have a minority of guests who do not take care of the amenities and cause damage / break items such as the cues etc. Normally this is picked up by the cleaner / property managers when they undertake the inspection after each guest checks out. Unfortunately it seems not to have been picked up in this instance, which is a shame. I am pleased that Helen (the manager) quickly fixed matters. Re the home pack / lack of supplies in fridge etc, unfortunately we are bound under strict Florida hospitality regulation and are not permitted to leave food stuffs / cleaning products between bookings, so unfortunately the cupboards have to be cleared between each guest / booking , which is in our opinion a great shame / waste, but it is done based on the law. We are however able to provide a bespoke welcome pack if the guest request / books in advance. I hope that we can welcome you back. Kind regards Andrew & Angela

great villa

  • 5 of 5

villa was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Location was very good its only a short walk about 5-10 mins from a large supermarket and restaurant which is handy as you don't have to get in the car every time you want to go out. Would rent this villa again, thanks for a great stay John
