About Tricia Kelly

Myself and husband Craig completely remodelled this villa in 2009 to a very high standard. I am originally from the UK and worked as an interior stylist and my husband's background was in construction. . We take pride in presenting a tastefully furnished and comfortable home for you to enjoy whilst you holiday in sunny Florida. All cleaning and management of the villa is done by ourselves so you can expect the highest standard. We hope you will book our villa and are confident that you will not be disappointed.

Tricia Kelly purchased this villa in 2008

Why Tricia Kelly chose Highlands Reserve

We chose Highlands Reserve because of its reputation and good access to all amenities.

The villa does not have properties close enough at the rear to be overlooked as many vacation villas have.

The area is quiet and respected by all those who live or vacate on Highland Reserve. Of course it is also very convenient to the golf course which is only a stroll or short drive along the street from the villa.

The development has a large communal pool only used by residents or vacationers who are given a key to the entrance. There is also a tennis court and childrens' play area.

What makes this villa unique

Highlands Reserve is only a short drive to the many theme parks and the coast is around 1 hour's drive away on either the east or west coasts.

There is a local supermarket and bars/restaurants within walking distance or car if it is too hot to walk!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have previously used another website where there are several favorable comments posted. I can arrange for previous guests whom I am still in contact with to let you know the comments on their stay.

Magic stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in Highland Reserve but first in this property, we had done our reviews and emailed the owners a few times before booking. The booking was nice and easy and everything that was agreed when we arrived. Everything was nice and clean and no completes. The games room which is in the house was great.

what can I say other than fantastic ! We were four Golfers who have a vast experience of Florida rentals, so it takes something special to impress us, we all like luxury and we weren't disappointed. This house is so well equipped, with every detail thought out to make a stay that leaves you wanting more. Every single pot / pan / gadget you can possibly imagine, The owner lives locally and visited us a couple of times and couldn't have been more accommodating. The Icing on the cake was the pool area, we had pool heating and spent early mornings and lazy evenings swimming and relaxing in this great chill out area, it even had a barbecue/sun beds and an al fresco eating area. This house is a great location for golf and visiting theme parks, the location is very quiet and extremely relaxing. We found the house to be very spacious with enough areas to find your own space when needed. The beds were very comfortable everyone slept well and the the cleanliness of the property was A1. I guarantee we will be returning and are already planning our next trip, thanks Trish for a fantastic holiday your house is amazing.

Owner's Response: Hi Russell and guys, Thank you so much for your positive comments. It really makes it worthwhile to have guests staying who appreciate the hard work that I and my husband put into the villa. When I took your booking I thought "oh gosh four guys" but I have to say that you left the villa in better shape than women! It was great to meet four really nice and respectful guys and you will be more than welcome to return anytime, I really hope you will. Best wishes to you all and hope to see you again, Tricia and Craig

A very good stay

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with everything at this villa. Tricia was very pleasant and accommodated our every need. The house is well equipped. The pool is small but very refreshing after a day of golf or a long hot walk. The pool does face south so is perfect for the winter season. There is the right amount of sun and shade available on the deck. It did help that the weather during our stay was absolutely perfect. I would reccommend this to a friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I would like to respond regarding the pool being small. It is actually standard size and do not wish to put off potential guests who read this. I have been renting for 8 years and never received any complaints about the pool. If you wish to swim in a larger pool there is a community one just along the street.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 10 day stay at this beautiful family home. The owner made it very festive by putting up a lovely Christmas tree and present under the tree for my 8 year old daughter.

The house is decorated and maintained to a very high standard and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly wish for.

The house is situated close to all that Orlando and Tampa have to offer and I can't wait to visit again.

Thanks for having us

Brilliant Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a couple for 2 weeks in August/September, what an absolutely lovely villa.

The location of the villa was brilliant for us, maybe 20 minutes drive from Magic Kingdom. There’s a Publix 4 or 5 mins away, there's also an Applebee’s, a Chinese takeaway, a bank, and a bunch of other stuff. Less than 10 minutes away from the villa there’s also a huge Walmart!

The owners Tricia and Craig take great pride in maintaining this villa themselves, rather than using a third party management company. This shows in the attention to detail not only in how the villa is kept, but on the experience as a whole.

Prior to arrival we received emails confirming general information about the villa such as access/alarm information, but also directions from the airport (which thankfully we printed as our Sat Nav didn’t want to work right away!!).

It was important for us to find a villa that was both modern and clean, and we were certainly not disappointed here. The villa was completely spotless and clearly very well maintained. From the granite worktops in the kitchen to the 50” tv in the living room, it’s clear that this villa has been remodelled recently and no corners have been cut while doing so.

We had friends over on several nights and made good use of the table football, pool and air hockey. Things can get quite competitive after a few drinks! We also put the BBQ to use on a few nights, and even one morning at 7:30am before heading out for the parks!

Tricia visited us on our stay and was lovely and made us feel totally at home. Tricia and Craig live not too far away, also on Highlands Reserve, which was very reassuring should we have needed them for anything.

We’d definitely recommend this villa for anyone visiting Orlando, and we’ll definitely be looking to stay here again!
