About Jane Taylor

We first travelled to Florida in 1987 for a "holiday of a lifetime" - little did we know that my husband would spend 7 years working between London and Tampa and that, two children later, we would buy a wonderful second home on Highlands Reserve.

We treat our villa as a true home from home.

Jane Taylor purchased this villa in 2002

Why Jane Taylor chose Davenport

We chose the location for its unspoilt views across the 6th and 7th fairways of one of the best golf courses in Florida, whilst offering easy access to Disney and the other Orlando attractions.

What makes this villa unique

We have family holidays in the villa, including our daughter's 18th birthday in October 2006 (enabling us to experience Universal's Halloween Horror Nights, which we do recommend!).

Every year we add or improve something in our home, which ensures that it is fresh for new and regular guests alike.

If you have any questions about Florida in general or Highlands Reserve in particular then I am happy to answer them. We have had holidays with young and teenage children, grandparents and friends. There is something for everyone!

Amazing holiday in great villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in Villa 502. We have stayed in other rental properties but this time it felt as if we were staying in a friend's home! I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't provided. The property was well maintained and furnishings etc were excellent.

The pool overlooked the golf course but was far enough away from the tee to maintain privacy. Additionally shrubs had been planted to provide screening. My husband and son played twice and enjoyed the course. The girls stayed in the pool enjoying the sunshine - the pool was in the sun all day and the lanai with the fan was very welcome!

The location is ideal for visiting the parks and has the benefit of other amenities nearby. Disney is 20-30 minutes away depending on the park and they were all easy to find with Jane's directions, although we must have taken a different route every night leaving the parks! Universal was almost an hour away mainly due to traffic on I4, but again was easy to find. The nearby Berrytown centre, though small, had a couple of places where we could walk to for a meal so the driver could have a beer with his meal. The Publix supermarket at Berrytown had everything we needed, including blackcurrant cordial which was in the 'ethnic' aisle!

In addition to the parks, and of course some shopping, we saw a rocket launch from Playalinda beach, very near Cape Canaveral. It is one of the recommended viewing sites. We took a picnic with us, using the ice box provided (as mentioned everything was there!). It was as well we took food as there wasn't even an ice cream van! The beach was beautiful and we had fun playing in the waves, we would recommend for a day away from the parks.

Hopefully we will return to Orlando in the future and would have no hesitation booking the villa. We would recommend it to our family and friends.

Perfect Location: Immaculate Property.

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate with everything you could possibly need. Very clean, with plenty of fresh towels & linen.

Perfect location for all attractions & shopping, supermarket 5 minutes away. The Golf Course was of a high standard & offered a delightful view from the back of the property.

As a party of 6 adults, the three double bed rooms were a bonus. Although if visiting with young children the two twin rooms were very tastefully decorated. I noticed a cot too!!

I would happily recommend this property to future holiday makers.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing and suited our family of 7 perfectly.

There was a lot of space,with the master bedroom being the size of a medium sized house.Everything in the villa was to a high standard and I would stay here again and recommend it to anybody.The pool area was perfect.

The only slight disappointment was Berry Town centre,although the Publix and Chinese takeaway were very good. There are loads of restaurants a 10 minute drive away.
