About John Harkness

We are a family of four who live in the UK, who have holidayed in Florida for over 25 years. After staying in lots of holiday villa we decided to buy our own and incorporate the best of everything we had experienced on our previous holidays. We love Florida, it's people and surroundings and want to share the great experiences we have had with our guests.

John Harkness purchased this villa in 2004

Why John Harkness chose Hampton Lakes

Our dream was that of buying our own holiday Villa in Florida. For a long time that dream was unattainable, but when we found we could at last afford to fulfill our dream, we looked at all the different locations available to us. Hampton Lakes was by far the most desirable community, and the Villas there were the most luxuriously appointed. We chose this particular Villa because of it's unique position and south facing private swimming pool overlooked by 16 spectacular palm trees. We have never regretted buying this Villa, and only wish we could spend more time there each year.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is set in the quietest part of the development, and has wide avenues and manicured lawns. Hampton Lakes has tennis courts and picnic areas, plus a volleyball court, all flood-lit for night time use, landscaped walks surrounding a lake with spectacular fountain, and a children’s play area. The Villa has sunshine on the pool deck all day, and the setting sun through the palm trees in the evening is a fantastic end to the day.

Great home and amazing price!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a nice clean place to stay? Look no further. This home is very clean, well maintained, very spacious and is located near major theme parks but outside of the hustle and bustle. No hotel can come close especially for the price and the amenaties you get!

Beautiful, modern villa!

  • 5 of 5

Being seasoned Florida visitors we have stayed in many villas but have to say that this villa is probably the most contemporary. We don't go to many theme parks so spent a lot of time by the large pool. We found Gary, the property Manager, to be very helpful regarding any questions we had. Hampton Lakes is a lovely estate and we made use of the community tennis courts many times. We went to the local Fish and Chip shop 'Sunday's Grill in Berry Town Centre on one of the Monday nights and took part in the weekly quiz - a great night! An amazing holiday only wish we didn't have to come home!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Very welcomeing and comfortable place to stay. Game room and pool are great for kids to have a place to unwind after a day at the parks. Everything was as promised and represented. House is attractively furnished with all the necessities. Will definitely stay again if property is available next time we are in the area.

Five Star Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was an oasis of calm after hectic days at the parks. The house was huge, very tastefully decorated, with open plan family areas and an extra sitting room and games room. The swimming pool was south facing and very private with palm trees. We absolutely loved our stay here. John and Yvonne couldn’t have been more helpful, and we’ll definitely be coming back soon.

Lovely home in a nice area

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great holiday in Florida (apart from a brief incounter with Hurricane Irma).

John's house is large and spacious, very tastefully decorated (unlike many US properties!) and extremely well equipped.

The house is well located for Orlando attractions and in a nice quiet neighbourhood.

What was a big deal for us, was the excellent communications we had with the owner, both before and during our stay, which gave us great piece of mind (especially so considering the challenging weather conditions).

I can also say from personal experience that the house is well built and hurricane proof!

I would recommend this property, and would be more than happy to stop there again when visiting Orlando.
