Why Peter Riis Laursen chose Highlands Reserve
We bought this home to have a place to spend time each year to get away from the cold winter in Denmark. During these periods we enjoy the Florida way of life, and make sure the villa is updated. It is important to us that the villa is the perfect base for your vacation.

Very nice villa. Extremely well cared for and very relaxing decor. Would definitely recommend
We used this villa as a base for Disney and Universal. Very relaxing location with a choice of taking the i4 or 192 to get to various parks or restaurant and shopping locations. After the hectic parks or busy shopping centres it was bliss to come back to a villa with great interior, relaxing views at sunset and various tv's etc. Obviously well cared for, this is a good choice for people that like a very clean organised enviroment
Beautiful Golf Community
We absolutely loved the home and pool. Beautiful place, very comfortable, easy access to golf and all of Orlando's main roads to attractions.
Thank you for your kind words, we are really happy you enjoyed your stay.

Perfect family villa
My family enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay at this villa. It's in a perfect location, about 20 minutes drive from the major theme parks so you're able to switch off and relax after a busy day. The pool is great, it gets the sun in the afternoon and isn't overlooked. We often got up early to go to the parks and were back at the villa by 4 to enjoy the afternoon sun.
The villa was clean and well presented and the well appointed kitchen had everything we needed.
The owner (Peter) was very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this villa again next time we visit Orlando.
Clean, well-maintained and close to Disney!
The villa was clean and ready upon our arrival. It was exactly as promised and the property manager stopped by the next morning to see if there was anything she could do to make our stay more enjoyable. There were plenty of towels and the beds were comfortable. The pool was well maintained and received sun all day, which made swimming and sunbathing a pleasure. The villa is in a quiet neighborhood and less than a 5 minute drive to the Publix. Disney is only a 20 min drive, which makes staying here a more affordable choice than a resort.
Dear Lilian and Peter,
We want to say thank you for renting your beautiful house. Unfortunately, we did not arrive until after the sun had gone down, but what a welcome we got. There were lights in the pool, the weather was great so it was just to enjoy the mild evening after the trip (we first came to bed after 4 in the morning, Danish time).
During the three weeks that we spent in Florida, the house served us as an excellent base for our excursions. It was the eight rounds of golf, two visits to the Premium Outlet, two visits to Celebration, a trip to the Kennedy Space Center, a long trip to the Everglades and Key Largo, a visit to Disney Springs and finally a trip to Homosassa Springs. Before the start of the trips, but especially after returning from the excursions, it was great to relax in the pool area. In a sense you could say that it was a pity that we so often were away from the house, because we in every way had such a wonderful time in the house and by the pool.Everything worked super. To the man's great delight, there was a huge TV in the living room, but there was almost no time to sit and watch the golf, the beautiful terrace also had to be enjoyed.
After the first week, we were visited by two of our friends. So now it was really time for fun and coziness around the pool. In addition, the Jacuzzi contributed greatly to removing the tensions that you easily get in your back after rounds of golf.
We would recommend the villa to everyone we know and who are planning a trip to the US
Dear Lilian and Peter
The whole family has now returned to Denmark after a wonderful and exciting stay in Orlando.
We have used your lovely and spacious house as a base for a lot of exciting experiences, among others a visit to Kennedy Space Center and Disney World. We have also given priority to enjoy the house and not least the lovely pool area has brought us many wonderful hours, where we splashed around and enjoyed the weather.
The area was beautiful and the girls in the family took advantage of the countless shopping opportunities.We are planning to come back next year

Highlands Reserve is one of the most desirable developments in this region and is situated approximately ten miles west of Walt Disney World Resorts. The main International Airport in Orlando is about a 45 minute drive and there is easy access to I-4 connecting to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. The area is beautifully laid out with planting and footpaths for walkers, joggers and strollers. There is a community area with tennis court, pool and childrens playground. Besides the acclaimed Golf Course, this is one of the very few developments within walking distance of a shopping mall with a Publix Supermarket, bars, British pub, and Pizza, Chinese, Italian, Indian and Japanese food takeaway outlets. Pay a visit to Applebees Restaurant and Bar, always busy , great value, and open' till late. Also on location there's a gas station, bank, UPS, hairdressers, nail spa, pool supplies, etc.. There is a large Super Walmart just a mile's drive away, open 24/7, and a large CVS Pharmacy across the road. In fact this location has everything needed for the perfect vacation. Conveniently located just minutes from the Walt Disney World area, Highlands Reserve is a Central Florida favourite!' Shopping Outlets like Premium Outlets, are a short drive from Highlands Reserve Other Activities: Bird watching Golf: Golf Orlando describes the Mike Dasher designed Highlands Reserve course as having: 'Tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, open spacious fairways likened to the great Scottish courses, and a bit of old Florida with citrus trees dotting the countryside. Large, fast, undulating greens make this course challenging and fun for all levels of golfers with water coming into play (barely) on just one hole, #10. It's a very sporty course and although it's a tad shorter in length, it can still be a 'wee tough' if your game's not on!
