About the property

Beautifully Furnished Home, Close to Disney and Other Attractions

Our beautiful, single-storey, four bedroom, two bathroom home is located in a peaceful corner of Highlands Reserve.

Split into a Formal Dining Area and Formal Lounge Sitting Area we believe our home is extremely relaxing, especially after a long day at one of the theme parks. We have though provided options to hopefully keep everyone happy and occupied: a large flatscreen TV with Digital Cable, a DVD player and a Playstation2 with one controller and several games provided. The Games Area in the garage includes pool table, table tennis, air hockey, table football, tennis rackets and balls. There is something to keep all interests happy.

The fully-equipped Kitchen with Breakfast Room has everything you require to make your stay easy and comfortable - even a teapot! The Laundry Room has a washer and dryer and there is space in the garage to hang clothes too. A cleaner can be arranged at extra cost to come in during your stay. Washer, dryer and fridge freezer were all replaced in June 2016.

A high chair and travel cot are also available for our smaller guests - at no extra charge. Bedding is not provided for this.

The bedrooms are: Master Suite with king bed and large walk-in Shower Room, a Queen Bedroom, two Twin Bedrooms, and a full bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with TVs.

The ensuite bathroom comprises a large walk-in shower with seating area, toilet and twin sinks/vanity unit. The second bathroom comprises a bath with overhead shower, toilet and twiin sinks/vanity unit. Hair dryers are provided in both bathrooms.

The heated pool (with 4 reclining sunloungers and other patio furniture) overlooks the conservation area and golf course and gets the wonderful Florida sun all day, but there is also plenty of shade as well with the covered lanai. Ideal for relaxing with a drink and a barbecue after a day at the parks. Switch on the pool lights and sit and enjoy the sun set with a large glass of wine or a beer while hubby cooks!

Highlands Reserve offers a Mike Dasher designed, championship 18-hole golf course, and as our guests you also have free access to an all-weather tennis court, a children's play area, and a community swimming pool.

Situated next door to the community is a Publix Supermarket, a hairdresser, a nail bar, several take-out restaurants, an Applebees restaurant/bar along with several other stores. Other restaurants are not far away. Wahlgreens is 5 minutes down the road.

Highlands Reserve is approximately a 15 minute drive from Disney, but needless to say this depends on traffic conditions and time of day. We are also less than an hour from Busch Gardens.

Linens and towels are provided, along with pool towels. You would need to bring bedding for the travel cot.

Free calls within the USA/Canada/Puerto Rico are available, along with free wireless internet access for those who can't switch off!

For availability please see the calendar.

About Kim

My husband and I have been together for 25 years. With two daughters, now aged 18 and 22, and a labrador, we live in England near the New Forest in Dorset. Alwyn is originally from North Wales and I grew up in Surrey - we met in Germany, working for the American Air Force!

We've spent time over the years in Germany, followed by England and then moved to Dubai in 2008. I now split my time between Dubai and England.

Kim purchased this villa in 2004

Why Kim chose Highlands Reserve

Back in 2004 when we were house hunting, we walked through the front door and could see straight away how private and peaceful it would be out by the pool - the biggest plus-point for me by far! Whilst we have neighbours to left and right we are not overlooked at the back of the property at all. We stopped house hunting then and there and put an offer in which was, thankfully, accepted.

What makes this villa unique

Added to the privacy at the back, the front of the house is also set back from the road almost at the end of Troon Circle, so we get very little traffic and no road noise at all.

Highlands Reserve is a beautiful place to own a home and we hope you find this to be so when you stay. It is ideally situated for Disney, and the East and West coast are not too far a drive for a trip out. Winterhaven down the road is also a wonderful area to visit with the lakefront restaurants, opportunity to rent boats and even do a spot of sightseeing from a seaplane

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What can we say! An amazing villa and pool in a wonderful location. Our family holiday of a lifetime was nothing short of perfect. The villa felt like home the moment we walked in. Sue has been a great support and very useful - having to stay a longer time due to my youngest having chickenpox was less stressful by being able to stay on at the villa. It will definitely be a holiday we won't forget and we would most definitely return. All our love

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We thought this house was clean, comfortable and quiet. We loved that the golf course was right in the backyard. The management company was very helpful.
