Plus this review from the Jackson family, Canada - December 2012



"We have just left this incredible property where we spent our Christmas holidays this year! We had an amazing time! The home is exactly as it shows in the pictures with a few upgrades as well!! It was everything we hoped for and more! It was immaculate and well furnished in every way! We were very fortunate to have come across this property in our search and the best part was that with the owners it was not just a "business transaction" but so much more! We were in contact with them before, during and perhaps after our stay as well! They were so helpful and friendly!! We were privileged to be able to share their home!! Sitting out by the pool in the sun and watching the golfers in "our backyard" was like a small piece of heaven!! We will recommend this property to all of our family and friends...as a matter of fact we already hav

Sorry to be leaving

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. Villa perfect as is the area for getting to all the parks and lots of nice restaurants along the way.

We have stayed on the highlands reserve estate for the last three years but this villa is by far the best, very spacious with great views,very relaxing and well equipped.

Mark the owner was very informative before we left the uk and kept in contact whilst in the villa.

Needed to use the management company on a couple of occasions due to a storm but they where very quick to respond.

Loved this time of the year as parks where not crowded and rides easy to get on.

If your looking for a lovely restuarant then go visit ovation on the 27 towards Haines city very friendly and reasonable also IHOP by publix supermarket great for breakfast.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

After a significant amount of background research and comparing properties, we spent 18 nights at Mark's villa in August - we were not disappointed; it was absolutely perfect for our two families (four adults, four children ages 8-14) but could easily accommodate more. The villa was clean and the room layout suited us. Although there is only one master suite, one of the other double rooms has a super-king bed so everyone slept well. We all made the most of the pool and jacuzzi and enjoyed the shade of the fanned covered area when the sun was too strong. The uninterrupted views from the outside area are beautiful. Some mornings we had hot air balloons to watch, with sunsets or distant thunderstorms in the evenings.

During our stay we had great fun at the Disney, Seaworld and Universal Parks with trips to Busch Gardens and Clearwater, which are slightly further away. The villa is in a good location for travel to all (via 27, 192 and I-4). We also spent time just relaxing at the villa and enjoying the Rio Olympics from our reclining chairs!

Mark was very helpful providing information about the villa prior to our booking and also contacted us during our stay to ensure all was going well. We were all sad to leave and would certainly stay there again. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We cannot thank Mark enough for letting us stay in his beautiful villa. The location is lovely and peaceful, yet less than a mile to the nearest supermarket and eateries. The villa itself is spacious and well laid out with a fabulous pool area looking out onto the golf course.

The service that we received from Mark was excellent. He dealt with our enquiry and booking promptly and efficiently and made sure that everything was OK during our stay. Our security deposit was returned very quickly and we will not hesitate to book the villa again when we return to Florida.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious villa which is very clean and well maintained. There were 3 couples and 3 kids in my party and everyone loved the villa. The pool is a good size and the spa was well enjoyed too with plenty of seating around the pool area. The full size pool table in the garage was also a hit. Lovely view of the golf course, no other properties overlooking and very quiet. Mark, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and the instructions and directions recieved for the villa were spot on. The location was fantastic for heading to the Disney parks, using the 27 and 192 was the quickest route and avoided the often congested I4. Disney was about 25 minutes drive and the International Drive/Universal area was about 45 minutes when there was no congestion. There is a Publix supermarket minutes away but we mostly used Walmart which was just over 5 minutes away and much cheaper. There are a few restaurants beside Publix which I would recommend. Applebees was nice for an evening meal although it can be very busy and IHOP was great for breakfast, especially the pancakes! The Chinese takeaway was also good but beware, the portions are huge so you're better sharing. Dominoes pizzas are also only a 5 minute drive away as are Subway sandwiches which are based on the gas stations nearby. Chills at Championsgate which is about a 10 minute drive is excellent and great value for the money. I would definitely recommend this villa and on my return to Florida I won't be looking anywhere else.

Best Location on Highlands Reserve

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to this beautiful villa. We have rented villas all around the Disney area of Florida, and this one has been the best of all. We don't look at others now, just book up again with the Owner. It is not like the description, it's far better! The place is wonderfully clean and tastefully decorated. Three is a superb pool area with Spa, and lots of poolside furniture. The best part for us is the immediate location. The pool are looks out onto the golf course, with a lovely view to e houses and woods at the far side of the course around a 1/4 mile away.

We would recommend this villa to anyone for a relaxing stay, or a base for Floridas theme parks. We will be booking again for next year very soon.

Beautiful home with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is so big and bright with wonderful open views of Highlands Reserve golf course. We have stayed on this golf course several times but have never had such amazing views and brightness from the very large pool and deck area that had ample chairs and sun loungers. There are no trees to block your view of the wonderful sunsets but the owner has provided 3 umbrellas and a large lanai if shade is needed during the day. I can't say enough about the owner Mark who was so obliging and caring from our first contact to book the villa to his lovely message on our last day in his lovely home. He also returned our security deposit within a couple of days of our return home and always kept us informed. Our only regret was that we were unable to rent it again for next year as we would definitely come back with our family.

As there was only my husband and I we only used the master bedroom but the bed was huge and extremely comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was massive.

We would highly recommend this lovely home and would like to pass our sincere thanks to Mark and his family for making our visit such a pleasure. We really did not want to leave and cannot wait to come back. Thanks a million. Take care Maureen and Brian
