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!

Wonderful stay in luxury house
We stayed for two weeks in this luxury house, spacious bedrooms and social areas. Well equipped kitchen and everything worked without any problem.
Easy to find the house and very quiet and friendly area.
We are more than happy with our stay and couldn't ask for anything more!
Chilly pool and hot tub
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.
Just returned from three weeks holiday in the states, the last week spent at Gail amd Pauls beautiful home in clearwater, the family consisted of 6 adults and 2 young boys. This Villa has to be seen to be believed , it has everything you need for the perfect holiday, it is in a residential area surrounded by houses of a similar standard, it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday scene but within striking distance of beaches shopping malls and fantastic restaurants, Tampa, is 15/20 mins away with the Zoo and other points of interest.
I would not hesitate in recommending this home as a base for your holiday, and hope to return myself soon.
Phenomenal - Highly recommended part 2
This was our second time renting this villa and it was every bit as phenominal as it was last year.
As we didnt have the distraction of my Uncles wedding this visit, it freed up more time to chill out & relax in the beautiful surroundings of the villa in the Florida sun & we also discovered Saftey Harbour with is a gorgeous wee place just a 5min drive away. (The highlight for me was the Ice Cream shop in Safety harbour - that alone is worth a visit)
Being so central to everything, we made our way over to Orlando for the day to Universal & the outlet mall, Elligton outlet mall, Bush Gardens, Clearwater Beach & much much more.
We are already busy planning our holiday for 2015 where we hope to book up to stay in this villa again. It's home from home & worth every star rating & more.
We decided to rent this villa due to it's location as it is an area we have now visited 5 times in the past 3 years. We often charter a fishing boat out of Safety Harbor and therefore the villa was ideally located for this.
The other reason for deciding on the villa was due to the fact that we had become fed up with the noise and bad behaviour now so common in hotels. This proved to be the right decision.
The villa itself is wonderful, with excellent accommodation and in a lovely peaceful residential location, the facilities on offer at the villa were just perfect.
I would commend this property to anyone looking to visit this area and would not hesitate in staying there again myself.
