About The Owner

Hi, my name is Gail and along with my partner Paul we have been fortunate enough to have purchased this beautiful home in an exclusive location of the prestigious golf resort of Highlands Reserve. We are both fanatical golfers and sunshine seekers, this was a perfect opportunity to make our dreams come true and we hope for you too! We are both English but moved to the Island of Menorca in the Mediterranean some 30 years ago where we have a car rental business. Our villa in Florida has many happy memories for us. We also have a second home in Clearwater, both properties are to a high standard and we are confident you will find everything you need to make your vacation a truly memorable one!

The Owner purchased this in 2005

Why The Owner chose Clearwater Area

Having already purchased a property on a golf course and near the Disney and Orlando attractions, we were constantly drawn to the beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast. We were fortunate enough to find this property and we fell in love with both the house and surrounding area that has so much to offer. The property is very private and secluded with enormous oak trees, numerous fruit trees and tall palms.

What makes this unique

Nothing is far away, in fact you will hardly want to leave the villa, if your looking for peace and tranquility this is it and the tussle and bustle is only minutes away!

Great Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Paul and Gail's villa while in Florida attending a wedding. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious and offers all the comforts of home. The pool area is perfect for dining or just sipping morning coffee. The house is located in a beautiful, quiet residential area but is close to everything, including the beach! This was my first time renting a vacation home like this and I was more than a little apprehensive, but it was a great experience for my family and we will definitely stay here again!

Home is wonderful, pool is great, and very close to all the fun things to do in Clearwater and Clearwater Beach.. Spacious and roomy, but wonderfully close and homey kitchen, living room and pool area. Hopefully available next year!

Chilly pool and hot tub

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful house. It has everything you need. It is very spacious. One thing that people should know is that the pool and hot tub are solar heated and therefore the temperature of the pool depends on the weather. We were there the first week of March and it got quite cool at night so the pool and hot tub never got above 72 degrees. Also for those travelling with small children or elderly this house has a sunken living room so there is a step running across the room and two small steps on either side going to the kitchen and the master bedroom. This is not mentioned in the listing. Aside from this if you don't mind a cold pool and hot tub the house is wonderful.
