About the property

Villa in High Grove, Clermont, Florida Orlando/Kissimmee, USA - 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Villa, In a quiet Gated Community, with a Private Pool and Spa

Our beautiful family villa is located on the prestigious High Grove resort in Clermont. It benefits from a large open plan living area and fully equipped kitchen. There are 4 spacious bedrooms, two en-suite king beds and two twin rooms with a linked ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom. The villa is equipped with every mod-con you would expect in a high standard property; air-conditioning, free WiFi, local calls, cable, a large 50" HDTV, plus TVs in all bedrooms and a games room for children and adults alike. We also offer free use of our BBQ and there is a safe available. It is outside however where we believe our villa really comes into its own. With a south west facing pool and spa you can enjoy all day sunshine and stunning views across the lake and conservation area. This small gated community is unique in appearance, and whilst very quiet, there are numerous restaurants, bars and a large Walmart only a 5 minute drive away. Disney World is only 15 minutes away, with Universal a further 15 minutes. Its approximately 75 minutes to Florida's golden, sandy beaches and also to the Kennedy Space Centre. Golfers are also catered for, with a number of championship standard courses nearby.

About Jane Ecclestone

About the owner

We live in Hampshire, England with our children and have enjoyed holidays in Florida for many years. The decision to purchase a property was a big one for us, and we hope that if you choose to rent our lovely villa that you enjoy its peace and tranquillity as much as we do.

Why the owner chose a villa in this location

We loved the villa as soon as we saw it. We wanted a modern villa that had a view and definitely did not look into other people’s pools.

Unique benefits of the property

We are extremely close to all the theme parks, golf courses, shops and restaurants. The property is extremely quiet and and you can enjoy sitting by the pool until late, taking in the sunshine and the stunning view across the conservation area.

Jane Ecclestone purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jane Ecclestone chose Clermont Area

We purchased the property because we wanted a modern villa with uninterrupted views, all mod cons, and the location to be quiet yet close to all the major attractions. We can be in our favourite restaurant in 5 mins drive and within 10-15 mins be at all the major Disney attractions. Additionally Orlando airport is only 45 minutes drive away.

We love High Grove, it is a small gated community, unique in its appearance and having a distinct Mediterranean look and feel to it.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in an extremely quiet community, and enjoys the benefit of being situated just off the 192, with direct access to all the Disney parks.

Our villa is in the southern part of the community, and offers a southwest facing position, meaning that the pool has sunshine from morning till night.

Perfect villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our 5th trip to Florida and have to say this villa helped make our holiday the best ever!

Jane and Mark were a pleasure to deal with and even left a bottle of bubbly for our wedding anniversary. The villa was clean, well presented and spacious. The kids loved the heated pool and cable tv in the bedrooms. We loved the peaceful location and beautiful view from the spa, a welcome break from the hustle of the Disney parks just 20 mins drive away.

With a big lounge TV, WIFI and other creature comforts this villa truly was home from home and a lovely place to spend our vacation. We cant wait to go back.....

Excellent vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to arrive at this villa. Jane was great to deal with and was very kind in leaving a bottle of champagne for my partners 50th birthday. The villa has excellent facilities and is very quite. The views from the pool area is stunning. We had everything we needed and the villa is just how it looks on the pictures. We can not wait to stay here again. Their are several restaurants close by and Walmart and publix are very close to be able to get your essential. Disney was only 20 minutes away. Defiantly stay here.

Home from home, fantastic location, great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa twice now and have just booked another two holidays in the same villa! We love coming back after a busy day having fun and stopping along the 192 at one of the many many restaurant choices on the way back before climbing in to the jacuzzi and the kids into the pool! This home is very comfortable and has everything and anything you need! From huge comfy beds right down to the whistling kettle..(which we adore by the way!). We have been lucky enough to see raccoon, deer, turtles, many birds of all sizes and yes an alligator... which respectfully we admire from afar! The facilities within the home include the best washer and dryer ever... can we ship these home?! The games room is a true favourite, great for the kids now they are getting older too. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone! Really can't praise it enough! Thank you Jane and Mark for sharing your home xxx

Was a delight to stay here

  • 5 of 5

Jane and Mark are the perfect hosts, so accomodating and helpful, and prior to arrival Jane sends out an email detailing lots of important information you will need (directions from airport, codes for the gate/alarm and key code). The villa itself is gorgeous, situated ideally so the pool is not directly overlooked by the other villa properties. Its so peaceful sitting out on the lania watching the cranes that visited us every day, along with the alligator that showed himself a few times in the lake and the turtles bobbing their heads out of the water. The communityof High Grove was idyllic, no noise at all, other than that of the wildlife, and the layout of the villa was ideal. Close by you have Walmarts, Publix, lots of eating places such as McD's and Dunkin Donuts, and on site you have Devanneys, an Irish themed pub that do amazing food (the steak and guiness pie is to die for) and they have entertainment on a couple of nights a week, but cant comment on this as we didnt visit when this was on). Very close to the 192 and to Disney parks, this villa is in an ideal location. We were really pleased to walk in and find it had the "lived in" feel to it, it wasnt clinical in any way and there were items left in the villa to help us get our holidayoff to the best start, just the little things like cleaning products, laundry detergent etc (we bought and left what we didnt use to help the next people on), and in the garage there was even a couple of poncho's for those lovely afternoon showers that FL is famous for when you are round the parks. An abundance of pool toys too in the garage (one of the large rings deflated so we did replace it like for like Jane), and even a couple of strollers if you have small kiddies. It just had everything anyone could want from a holiday home. As myself and my fiance were getting married whilst we were in FL Jane had even gone out of her way to buy us a bottle of champagne and written in a card wishing us all the best, we felt so humbled to receive this and was such a very kind gesture and not one that we were expecting. Thankyou so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful villa and we will be recommending it to anyone who asks, and will not hesitate to return ourselves in the future should we want to stay in a villa.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks July / August, it was such a lovely villa and was like home from home. The villa was just as the pictures show! There was four of us (2 adults and 2 children) so plenty of space.

The pool area we all loved and was not overlooked by anyone and had sunshine for most of the day so pool heating was not needed. The games room is brilliant and we spent lots of time having fun in here.

The villa was in a great location, nearby for supermarkets, restaurants and Disney was approx. 20 minutes with Universal approx. 30 minutes away.

Communication with Jane was always very swift and was always helpful when replying to my emails . From the initial contact with Jane through to the end was excellent.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. This was our first DIY holiday and were slightly nervous but has definitely given me confidence to do it again! We are already planning when to come back!

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing villa, was beautifully clean and well equipped. The pool and jacuzzi were fabulous. The surrounding area is breath taking with picturesque views. All local amenities are within a five minute drive and Disney /universal is around 20 minutes. The owners are also very helpful lovely people. We are hoping to book again very soon x
