Its great to cycle to the local shops. Its great when people have stayed and have enjoyed our home as much as we do. We try to make it so you enjoy your holiday and have everything that you need. The Golf course is very friendly.

We have a lot of lovely visitors that return to sunview villa every year We are always updating our Home and keep it up to date. We love our home and hope that you will love it to.

veronica penfold purchased this villa in 2005

Why veronica penfold chose Highlands Reserve

We chose Highlands Reserve because it is a residential area and not just a holiday community so you get a feel for the local people the villa is next door to Ray and Kathy who are American and live there. All the homes are individually owned, many with stunning views. The community is within easy driving distance of all of the attractions, restaurants and shops. Once you return after a hectic day out, you can just relax with a cold drink by the pool and spa where the sun is all day. The golf course is very popular and is very friendly, and as guests you qualify for discounted rates. There is also a tennis court, outdoor swimming pool and children's play area and with the bikes that we supply you can cycle there. Sunview villa has everything you need and more for a wonderful holiday.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is a very large villa for a 4 bedroom home, it is spacious and light, attractively decorated and furnished. Highlands Reserve is one of the nicest communities and the golf if is great for all levels. The villa updated on a regular basis and is maintained to a very high standard by our management company who live on Highlands Reserve are available if you need them. The villa backs onto conservation area and so is very private which so many of our quests say is a bonus.The pool and deck area is larger than most pool area's and it has the sun on it all day so quest's after a long day at Disney or the parks can still sit outside. We are within walking distance to Berry Town which has a large Publix supermarket ,Bank, Petrol station, restaurants, and a Doctors, so is very convenient to cycle to with the bikes that we have in the games room. All linen is of top quality plus we supply pool towels. The house is fully licensed/inspected by the State of Florida and regulated by the Hotels/Accommodation division.

Stunning villa.

  • 5 of 5

Sunview villa is absolutely wonderful.The location is only a short drive from Disney with a golf course on site.The villa backs on to the forest so the fabulous pool and hot tub are very private.My family had hours of fun playing in the pool.

The decor and furnishings are very tasteful with plenty of space for a family of 8.

A large Walmart is 5 minutes up the road with plenty of other shops and restaurants close by.

The iceing on the cake is Victoria the owner who is so professional,helpful and very accommodating.

I would certainly recommend this villa to any family who want a great holiday.

Homely and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The villa was a very good size and very comfortable. All bedrooms a good size and kitchen well equipped. A new oven arrived during our stay, it was fantastic, very efficient and reliable. The owner was brilliant, on our last day she agreed for us to stay a couple of hours longer to fit in with our flight times. In the end, we still left early to maximise on the Disney theme parks! The villa is ideally located for Disney and has a supermarket just around the corner as well as a couple of restaurants. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa. We had an amazing holiday and after extremely busy and exhausting days at the theme parks, it was good to head back and relax in a lovely home.

Great holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunview Sept 2017 .. fantastic home with lots of space, all the amenities you could require. Clean and comfortable with fantastic private pool and jacuzzi. My husband and I have not really taken the villa experience before usually favouring hotel stays however we would love to return to Sunview. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your Florida home. Pauleen & Brian O'Neill.

A beautiful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my family have just returned from a 15 night stay in this beautiful villa. It is immaculately clean and very well equipped with everything you could need plus towels in abundance. The pool area was lovely to sit out on a morning with a cuppa watching the sun come up then a welcome relief after a day in the parks. There is supermarkets close by -Publix or Walmart and plenty of restaurants or fast food places close by on highway 27 or 192.

I would highly recommend this amazing villa to anyone looking to book .I hope me and my family will be able to return again very soon

Thank you so much Veronica and Mike for allowing us the pleasure of staying in your wonderful home

Fab villa fab Florida

  • 5 of 5

Great location with access to all parks,local grocery stores,good class restaurants,Premier Outlet Mall,takeout delivery and return trip to Clearwater or Busch Gardens.Villa fully equipped with comfortable furniture,kitchen with all mod cons,spacious bedrooms and large games room when kids want a break from pool or I phones!Outstanding pool area with plenty and comfortable furniture and all day sunshine.I have stayed in many Davenport villas this is the best highly recommend.One tip...for grocery shopping the extra miles to Walmart is worth it as Publix is overpriced in comparison.

Owner's Response: Hi Dave and Family Glad you found all that you needed in the villa we try to think of everything that you would need just like home. I agree Publix is great but Walmart in Clermont is cheaper and lots of bargain suitcases are much cheaper than Uk so you can bring lots of things back. Home you come back soon Veronica Mike

Amazingly Spacious & Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Sunview Villa is extremely well equipped and provides you with everything you need for a comfortable stay including towels and beach towels in abundance.

The villa is tastefully decorated and so spacious we have two children and for a week of our stay friends with no children joined us. We each felt that we had our own space and the lay out of the villa is perfect for two families allowing privacy.

A stroll down to Berry (25min) for a nice bite to eat at Applebee's makes a change not to drive. Close drive to all the Parks, Wal-Mart & Publix. The owner is very responsive and helpful with an onsite management company also available if required. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Sunview and would actually make sure we spent more time at the actual villa relaxing around the fabulous pool and enjoying the games room.
