It is situated within a stones throw of a natural lake and this is your view from our private pool. Our villa is not overlooked by any other properties but you may find local nature pays you a welcome visit with humming birds and turtles to name just a couple.

Walt Disney World Resort 10 miles.

Several championship standard golf courses.

Fishing lakes.

With spacious living areas and bedrooms, you will be able to enjoy your stay without feeling overcrowded. The villa sleeps 6 people comfortably and benefits from air conditioning complemented with ceiling fans throughout the property for your comfort.

Living Space

The open plan design of the Kitchen/Diner and Living room allows guests to share this important space to enable you to spend your happy times together, all whilst overlooking the pool. The family room is equipped with a large TV with a DVD player and Nintendo Wii console for your entertainment. The kitchen is fitted with a selection of storage cupboards and an electric, 4 ringed cooker and overhead extractor and microwave. A large fridge freezer with water and ice dispensers is also provided.

Outside Space

The 21 foot, south facing, private screened pool looks onto a nature conservation area. With no rear neighbors, it provides guests with a perfect secluded paradise to bathe and play. The huge pool deck and lanai are all screened so you are not visited by an unwelcome smaller wildlife. Our villa has solar power to heat the pool so there are no extra charges made to you for pool heating, bonus, a great saving if you are visiting in the cooler months, also good for our environment. The outside area is equipped with alfresco dining furniture, relaxer beds and pool furniture so your party can all take advantage of the fantastic Floridian climate.

Additional Information

Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

We are Donna & Gary, we live in Lincolnshire, England, we love to travel and have been lucky enough to live overseas throughout our time as man and wife, the best place being Belize, it was whilst here that our love affair with Florida began. We took our children Connor, then 7 and daughter Beth, then 5 to, where else, Disney World. That was back in 2002, we then realized that we would be back! Florida, Orlando in particular is a place where you visit and leave saying 'when we come again' as opposed to 'that's one ticked off my bucket list'. These theme parks never stop evolving and are the best in the world without doubt.

We have found a place where we want to go back to time and again...........and have discovered so much more than those fabulous theme parks.

A wonderful villa to relax in on our holiday. After 3 weeks here it feels like home and we don't want to leave! The view from the pool is amazing, we saw 2 gators, vultures and many other amazing creatures.

The perfect place to stay near Orlando

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Reserve Retreat we felt at home. The management team had prepared the villa well, lights were switched on, it was warm and everything was spotlessly clean. The villa is tastefully decorated and furnished.

As we arrived in the evening we were intrigued to find out what we would see outside in the morning and we were pleasantly surprised. Beyond the sparkling swimming pool and the comfortable sun beds and dining furniture in the lanai was a grassed area and a lake which attracts a variety of wildlife. A sign on the grass advises residents not to feed the alligators, thankfully we didn't see any! We did see a variety of birds and we came to appreciate what a wonderfully peaceful place this was. We enjoyed the outside space, sitting there for breakfast and lunch and sunbathing by the pool, although the pool temperature was refreshingly cool.

As a group of three friends taking a short break to celebrate a milestone birthday the villa suited us perfectly. Each of us having our own bedroom and bathroom was a real treat. The beds were very comfortable and I loved the spacious master bedroom with the walk in wardrobe and en suite.

Information about the villa and the local area was available, we liked shopping at the Publix supermarket which is just a few minutes drive away. If the weather is bad and you need to stay indoors there are videos, DVDs, sound systems and television all available to use.

If you are looking for a peaceful place to chill out but close to all the Orlando attractions then Reserve Retreat comes very highly recommended, we wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you to Donna and Gary for making their super home available for us to enjoy.

Perfectly located villa

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located villa for all parks and minutes from a supermarket and restaurants. The villa was a home from home and spotlessly clean on arrival. The owners couldn't have been more helpful pre and post visit. We will certainly recommend to family and friends.

LOVE IT

  • 5 of 5

Quite frankly we loved it. The villa/home is perfectly situated with easy access to I4 giving easy access to everything you want in Florida ie Disney, Universal etc etc. Shops for food shopping are very close and easily obtained. The villa was very clean on arrival and was cleaned midweek to an excellant standard.

It has a safe. Everything is at your finger tips including extras to use when out and about. Its a home from home basically.

You are in a gsted community which was not only quiet but makes you feel secure and safe.

My advice is BOOK IT and i guarantee you will not be dissapointed. We are returning next year.

I am a hard person to please and i was very pleased.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you guys enjoyed our Reserve Retreat and glad it lived up to it's name, we truly feel it is a sanctuary among all the excitement that is Florida, however it is nice to hear these guest reviews that agree with us. We are very pleased you found the villa nice and clean and as it should be for your stay, you decided to have mid-stay housekeeping, extra treat, you are on holiday after all!! Extremely thrilled you have reserved with us again, many thanks to you both for your kind comments and thank you for leaving a 'recommendations' folder in the villa to give future guests ideas for alternative days out.

Location

From the Owner

On the 23rd of April 2015 we viewed this Villa, along with 20 or more others over a few days and another Florida 'love affair' began, as we left we had to stop for a turtle crossing the road, I've never seen one so large. We had found the 'one', we new it, absolutely and without a doubt it had to be ours! On the 10th July that dream became a reality............

Facilities

From the Owner

The Town Center Reserve is a quiet haven away from the hustle of theme parks and attractions, you will not believe you are so close to everything, tucked away in this peaceful spot, although the Disney late night fireworks can be heard and seen in the distance from the front of the villa. By day chill out by the pool on the south facing deck, no rear neighbors, skinny dipping allowed! Views over the water of the nature reserve, reeds swaying in a little breeze.........bliss
