  • 5 of 5

We had cruised from Miami the previous week and was really looking forward to a relaxing time, as well as meeting up with other family at the villa.

I have owned in Highgate since 2008 and understand all too well the challenges of running a vacation home, whilst I agree some further investment would be beneficial it is far from necessary. The home is clean, well appointed and if you can find a problem then either look in the mirror or call the management company. We called, they attended, problems solved and that's why this is still a five star review because we didn't pay for the Waldorf Astoria but the stay was as enjoyable and the comfort just as comparable. Of course there were little things such as the mattress in the master being angled and compressed on one side (due larger guest no doubt) and the television in that room being small as well as far away, but so what...

As with all villas there are supermarkets / restaurants a short drive away, Disney is about twenty realistic minutes and Universal about forty minutes, real times in real traffic - bear that in mind.

The kicker here is the nature reserve out back, we had raccoons visiting who smelled the barbecue and large birds most days, the view from the oversized balcony / deck which spans the width of the building and serves both master bedrooms is great. We didn't use the games in the garage much but kids from eight to eighty will love it. The kitchen is well appointed and functional, many have left their souvenir cups in the cupboard as poolside crockery being plastic.

Highly recommend this property and there's every chance we may return in the following twelve months, definately to the division location which is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Hi David Thanks for your 5 Star Rating. I think this reflects the beautiful home and location. But also represents the fact it is a working rental property, which we are constantly upgrading and maintaining. Thanks

Big and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 adults. This home is BIG, clean, beautiful, very well furnished and provided everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of towels were provided which was a great plus since most of our time was spent by the pool. There were a few minor issues (loose faucet in kitchen, loose handle on fridge, bedroom door lock, etc.) that were relayed to the management company, but nothing that would have deterred us from enjoying the home. We played pool and air hockey in the garage which was lots of fun. Supermarket, liquor, nail salon, Walgreens, all within a short 5 minutes drive. Plenty of Eateries nearby as well if you don't want to cook. Easy to get to from Tampa Airport. BBQ provided is a standard small charcoal grill not gas. Owners were friendly and quick to answer our questions. Overall a great vacation and I would definitely recommend.

Superb holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained family home which because of layout lends itself to multiple generation occupancy. It is well situated for all theme parks and shopping with lots of decent restaurants nearby. Thoroughly recommend!

Comfortable house

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable base for holidaying close to the parks of Orlando. Our party was made up of 3 generations of one family, grandparents, 2 daughters and their husbands and 4 grandchildren and the house provided spacious accommodation for us. It is, however, looking a little tired around the edges with insufficient pool deck furniture to accommodate large groups. There are only 2 loungers, and 6 chairs for use around the patio table which makes it difficult for larger groups to enjoy the outdoor living that Florida has to offer. We have been to Florida 5 times previously (albeit not staying in the Orlando area) and this was the first time we have encountered a house with limited equipment. For a house purportedly set up for families, there is additional cost involved in hiring basics such as highchair, cot, barbeque etc. That said, we loved the area and had a lovely holiday together.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our property. Firstly we are pleased that you enjoyed our Luxury Accommodation and the location it offers. The property is less than 4 years old with numerous guests enjoying its facilities, some of whom have returned many times. This of course does mean that the upkeep and maintenance is an ongoing process, which we rigorously follow. The point you raise about the highchair, cot and BBQ was explained at the time of booking. The safety and cleanliness of this equipment can't be guaranteed from one guest to another, we therefore don't keep these items at the house, but they are available for rent, by those who want/need them. This way cleanliness and safety are guaranteed. The point you make about the chairs has been noted and extra seating/loungers will be provided, as there were only 8 in your party and there are 8 chairs/loungers, we trust this didn't cause too much inconvenience

The best home ever !!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home for us and our family and friends to enjoy. We stayed in this home for five weeks and enjoyed every minute. The weather was absolutely wonderful. Dave and Ann were very gracious in helpiing us before we got to the Shire. Perfect location . We are planning to stay there next Winter. The only thing that we wish we had there was a barbecue grill. Decorated beautiful.

Owner's Response: Hi Thanks for your wonderful comments. It is reassuring for us to know we have got right and that the house is held with such high esteem. So much so that you immediately booked to stay there again next year. In response to your question about the BBQ. We have considered this on a number of occasions and after consultation with our Management Company and other home owners, feel we are unable to guarantee cleanliness from one guest to another and have therefore decided against having one. There is always an option to rent one during your stay. Thanks
