About the Owner


Guest satisfaction is our main priority as we believe a recommendation based on personal experience is an excellent way of advertising our property. Many of our guests have stayed at our villa previously. Staying in a private villa is a wonderful, good value for money way of enjoying a Florida holiday as you have a 'home-from-home' experience with plenty of space, a high standard of presentation and amenities. A private, heated pool is an added bonus! You can be confident that we will do our best to look after you from the point of booking until it's time to say goodbye to Highlands Reserve, until perhaps another time. Please take a peek at guest comments to get a better idea of the location and what's on offer.

Julia + Leighton Thomas.

Clelland family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in this area many times before however this was a first to this home.

When we arrived we were met by Roberto to show us around and make sure all was OK.

The house is beautiful inside and out everything supplied for our comfort.

The pool area has the sun from early morning until sunset we couldn't have asked for better. By far the best house we have stayed in on any of our trips to Florida.

Just looking at dates for next year now for a return

Thanks for a very relaxing stay at your villa - it's in very good condition and we found we had everything we needed to cater to our requirements and the pool was very private and nice to chill out by on lazy days.

The location was excellent for walking to the local Publix and we also do a lot of running and walking around the development and felt very safe and secure. We also used the communal tennis court and had a round of golf on Highlands own course which after 3pm is $20 so good value.

We will definitely book again! Thanks.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments. We also think Highlands Reserve is a beautiful golf development and love spending time there! As well as the local Publix supermarket guests can easily walk to Applebee's restaurant and the newly opened iHOP next door.

The Cudmore Family Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Julia

Thank you so much for letting us share your wonderful villa at Highlands Reserve. This was our first time family holiday to Orlando and we could not have been recemended to a better villa. It was stunning from beginning to end. Our boys loved the pool and taking a dip was the first thing they did when we arrived ! It was heated and very warm. The villa had everything we needed and Bob was always on hand if we needed anything,a lovely man. It is a perfect location for Disney not far away at all and very close to all the other attractions. Applebee's just down the road is highly recemended along with The Outback Steak House, Chili's, Texas Roadhouse to name a few. Our weather was wonderful and we are defiantly hoping to return to your wonderful villa in a few years time. Thank you so much for all the lovely and amazing memories we all have, our boys will never forget their holiday of a lifetime..... We will be back .... Best Wishes Linda and the Cudmores xx

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean, spacious villa with all the household utilities needed by a family. Lovely sized rooms both living and bedrooms, very well equipped kitchen and laundry room. Pool is good and in the sunshine all day, patio beds and chairs available. We stayed for 21 nights and the villa is in a perfect location for us, not to far from the Disney and Universal theme parks, after a busy day then the pool is a great size for a cooling dip and a play. Highlands Reserve Golf Club is right on the door step and is a course that is enjoyable for all levels of golfer.

Both owners and property manager are very pleasant and answered every call/ email or in person before we stayed or whilst we were staying in the property answering every question we had.

We recommend this villa and will be using it again.

We love this villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th stay at this villa. The villa has everything you need plus more.

Roberto, who looks after the villa lives next door so this is a bonus if you have any questions or concerns. Julie, the owner is very nice and always responds quickly to emails.

There are lots of local restaurants / supermarkets close by and I have also visited the spa at Regal Palms for some treatments.

We love staying here and are returning again Oct 2015.

This was our sixth visit to this villa which says a lot in itself. We call this villa our home from home and our visits to Florida would not be the same if we could not book this villa. Whenever we plan another holiday to Florida the first thing we look at is the availability of the villa as it’s in a great location as you don’t necessarily have to take the car to visit the shops and restaurants as they are within a 5-10 minute walk. We always find it spotlessly clean and well-kept by the owners Julia and Leighton and it is reassuring that there is a resident who lives close by who is always on hand should you have any problems. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone.
