About Julia/Leighton Thomas

Hi,

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.

Awesome home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area before but this year in Julia's home was the best. The home was just the right size for us and the area wonderful. So quiet and we felt secure. We had the pool heated and we used it everyday.The home was so clean and smelled great when we walked in the first time. Roberto the manager was just 2 doors down and was the greatest. . My wife is telling me to book for next year now. Thank you Julia for the use of your home for our 2 weeks.

Great villa in excellent area

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as Julia's guest for two weeks. Villa was clean and cozy for our family of 5. Kids loved the pool. Close by to Publix + other shops and Disney World where we spent most of our time. Also the golf course at Highlands was good value. We will definitely hope to return some day.

Owner's Response: We're always delighted to know that guests have found the villa has met their high expectations. We know that excellent location is also very important to guests and Highlands Reserve is very popular for that reason. The 18 hole golf course, clubhouse, community pool and tennis courts are an added bonus. Thank you to the Peltonen family for being our guests. We hope to welcome you back at another time...........

A fabulous well equipped villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at this luxurious villa which was very clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped. It was a joy to actually get back from the Disney Parks!

The pool was a real winner with my sons and we benefitted from getting the sunshine all day.

The location was great - close to the Parks and benefitting hugely from having shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. 2 for 1 drinks at Applebees was a winner!

Both manager and owner of the property were on hand and provided us with all the information we needed to make this a perfect holiday.

Would most definitely recommend this villa.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a fabulous 12 nights at this beautiful villa. We were greeted by Roberto who lives 2 doors away and always on hand for advice and assistance. He showed us around and answered our queries. The villa was spotless and very well equipped. Perfect location for our needs - Disney/universal/shopping malls. We loved having Publix, Applebees and IHOP so close by which meant we sometimes walked for dinner. All the bedrooms were a good size and the pool and outdoor area were fantastic. We absolutely loved our stay and would have no hesitation recommending to friends.

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
