About Susan ODonnell

We are a scottish family who have owned the property for 10 years. When looking for a villa to buy we had a long list - on a golf course, property not overlooked, simple yet large open plan area, large bedrooms and peaceful location. We did not think we would find a home but did - 1031 Troon Circle.

We have spent time on each of our visits making the villa ours - you will find it very modern and contemporary with lots of candles and simple iron wall art. (not to mention family paintings from our young son).

We have been very fortunate in many of our guests have repeated their bookings on more than one occasion and on this basis, we feel really happy that our villa meets many high expectations for the much needed family


We reinvest in our home every year making sure the furnishings are modern, the decor is up to date, clean and of a high standard.....

We respond to all feedback in our aim to keep our home fresh and very much in tune with guests changing needs. Your comfort, safety and enjoyment are hugely important to us as is the need to make sure you can relax in the vacation capital of the world!

Have fun guys....

Susan Eric and Calum.

Why Susan ODonnell chose Davenport

We bought the villa 10 years ago and the real attraction for this estate was the fact it is a great mix of people who live their permanently and holiday homes and has a fantastic golf course on site. The mix is great and we are fortunate to have the golf professional a few doors down as well as a Sherriff!

Highlands Reserve is about 15mins from Disney and around 25 mins from Universal on the right side of town! The trip to either can be made without any contact with the 192 and makes for a pleasant and simple journey.

Heading south, Clearwater is about 75 mins away again on a direct routing to I4.

What makes this bungalow unique

Peaceful area away from the rush, golf, near to all the tourist attractions which are close to hand. Some great little secrets like Revolution Lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Took our time booking a villa and lived the nice decor and great support Susan provided to the endless questions we had...

Great choice for us and we loved every minute. The house was spotless and the photos on the website do not really do it justice! Lovely features and touches throughout making this a relaxing brilliant holiday....

Highlights? View, pool, modern decor and simple approach to booking and support provided amazing!

Def up for booking again....when we are able to afford the parks that is!

1031 Troon Circle, Highlands Reserve

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely lovely. Very tastefully decorated in every room and fully appointed with everything we could need. Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained, and the pool was warm and welcoming. The owners were fantastic throughout the process and I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house and location. We've been to Orlando a few times with extended family and booked a villa as part of a package through BA. This time, there was only myself and grown up kids visiting for my daughter's 21st. I had some minor worries about how we'd manage on out own but we needn't have worried!

I was delighted to be able to book Susan and Eric's home in Highlands Reserve. Susan gave us some tips on travel and we opted to fly Edinburgh to Newark then down to Orlando. Great call as we cleared customs in Newark which allowed us hit the road quickly on arrival in Orlando. The added bonus of booking this way was that we also had the villa entry code already so no stopping off at the rental office on the way. I far preferred this as it was all so much less stressful that the way we'd done it before.

I'd never driven in the States either! Susan and Eric's booking letter have directions but I played it safe, plugged the address into the sat nav and off we went. It's an easy drive from the airport, In fact, it's an easy drive to all the parks (Universal is a little further away) and Celebration. Highlands Reserve itself is a beautiful estate. Previous places we've stayed look very much like short term rental only - this one looks more cared for and lived in with some well established gardens and felt very safe.

The villa is comfortable, tastefully furnished and felt like home. The bedrooms are good sized, beautifully decorated (I particularly liked that they weren't themed!) and the beds were so comfy. Each room has a television for those evenings when you're just too tired to do much more than chill. The pool area is just stunning. It looks onto the golf course through the trees and we loved starting our day with breakfast by the pool. I'm still missing that actually. And after a long day in the parks we sometimes cooked in the great kitchen, sometimes ate out but always ended the day sitting outside with drinks. We appreciated things like the blender (clean eating daughter!), the hairdryer and the docking station which we made a lot of use of during our stay. The pool guy and the maintenance guy both popped in whilst we were there and were polite and friendly.

I felt very at home in this villa. The neighbourhood was lovely and felt safe and friendly. There is a Publix, Walmart and CVS within a few minutes drive and the drive to the parks was easy. All in all, perfect! Can't wait for next time!

This is a fantastic villa in a great location, if your going to the parks or shopping malls it's only a short drive away. The villa itself is terrific, clean, comfortable and everything you need to enhance your stay. We've used this villa 3 times now.

Stunning Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Checked into 1031 TC for our second time. The minute you walk in the door the wow factor hits you. Bright, airy, spacious and beautifully furnished villa. The feeling of peace that descends when you sit out under the lanai with the fabulous view to the golf course is incredible. Great villa in a great location on Highlands Reserve. We've already booked again for 2017! Thanks Susan, Eric and Calum for letting us share your fabulous villa.

Having played many courses in and around Orlando Highland Reserve rates high on my list because of the interesting layout, trees, no water hazards and hilly terrain. This cost effective course is friendly and accessible.

Highland Reserve is a great location for running/jogging with the golf course not off bounds out with peak periods. This together with the quiet streets and large sidewalks and trails allow for very pleasant running conditions.


Highlands Reserve is around 30 mins from Orlando. International Airport, 50 mins from Sandford and a mere 15 mins from Disney World.
