About veronica penfold

I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband of 39 years and have two sons.

Most of our holidays are spent at our villa Sunview on Highlands Reserve and it's great when the rest of our family come with their children. We love Highlands Reserve and the people that live there. 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 Davenport

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.

Highlands Reserve Villa

Just got back from a 2-week stay. Villa was fantastic and exactly as advertised. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, great pool and excellent location. Just as importantly the owners were a pleasure to deal with - thanks for a great stay!

Sunview Villa Highland Reserve

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed on Highland Reserve many times in different villas. This is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in. It is well presented with everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the best location overlooking the conservation area with all day sun to the rear. Would definitely stay again! Great service from both the owner and management company throughout.

Beautiful, well-maintained home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property, well cared for by the owners. On arrival everything was spotless and lights had been put on as we were arriving late. Very thoughtful. Felt like home from home, particularly important for us as we spent Christmas there with our family. Every kitchen utensil one could think of, garage turned into a lovely playroom, plenty of towels for both bathroom and pool. So nice that we have booked a return visit already! Great golf on site too.

The place to say in Davenport

  • 5 of 5

Sunview Villa was exactly as it looked on line- comfortable and clean.

It was the ideal place to relax after a day in the parks. Lovely size pool with Jacuzzi and not overlooked at back of property only by the deer and other wild life. Everything you needed was supplied, mountains of towels, more than enough hangers and all the kitchen equipment you would ever need. Berry Town centre 5 mins drive away for the essentials.

Tom the property manager was very helpful .

All the main parks and beaches are easy to get to with access to interstate 4 from the 27 which Highland Reserve is off of.

I would highly recommend Sunveiw Villa to anyone visiting Orlando and can't wait to go back.

Perfect villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Great villa in a lovely peaceful location, but within easy driving distance to the Disney parks. The layout of the property was perfect for us, a family of 6. We enjoyed the pool and the games room. The villa was extremely well equipped and had everything we needed (was nice not to have to bring towels).

Great communication with Veronica (the owner) before and after our stay. I would definitely recommend Sunview villa!
