About Tim Desai


We are a married couple from England and bought this villa after falling in love with Florida after a holiday in 2013. We researched and viewed many properties but were most impressed by the community at Highlands reserve even though neither of us plays Golf. We have tried to cater for all of your needs and really appreciate all of your enquiries so please do not be afraid to contact us. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish everything was really smooth and I felt really comfortable with the transactional side of things. The villa is really private and has nearly everything to make this a home from home. We bought and left a couple of things behind to "pay it forward" for future holiday makers, a clothes horse so that wet clothes don't have to be draped on any of the lovely furniture and some tea towels (these were missing when we arrived). Publix Grocery store is within walking distance and the journey to the parks is no more than 30 minutes in the busiest of traffic. My only slight comment is that the children's (single) beds all "squeak" so they might need 'tightening" up? The noise disrupted my youngest enough to request a swap to the super comfortable master bed (I'm not so sure it wasn't an excuse to swap places with me!) Overall, do not hesitate to book this wonderful villa, you won't be disappointed !

Fantastic *****

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 weeks over Christmas and enjoyed every minute of it. House is in amazing location easily accessible to all theme parks, international drive and the malls. There is a Publix just off the reserve which has everything you need or a massive target and Walmart a couple of miles away!

Pool is great our kids loved the rings fountain. Towels all provided which was a gods end as we brought so many souvenirs.

It is very spacious we didn't even use the reception room.

Definitely would not hesitate to book again!

Outstanding vacation home-private pool made it fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over NYE, the heated pool was wonderful for our children, the home was perfect, very large, there were rooms we didn't even go in. 15 min to Disney, a little over an hour to Cocoa Beach, lots of places to eat and get coffee. Very nice residential neighborhood. We hope to come back and book again. Highly recommend this property and the owner.

Lovely villa, fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Vila for 21 nights through October and November. From the time I booked and paid my deposit for the villa until the time we went I had excellent communication with Tim the owner. He answered all my questions expediently. The villa is located in Davenport off of Interstate 27 which was 15-20 minutes from the Disney parks and 25-30 for Universal. It's also easily positioned for Busch gardens and Lego land. Berry town centre is located 15 minutes walk or a couple of minutes drive away and has Publix, Applebys, IHOP and other small restaurant and takeaways. We ate at the English owned and run Fish and Chip restaurant which was not very good service. On the other hand the Chinese take away was great food and well priced that we ordered from there a couple of times. A Walmart superstore was 10 minutes along the 27 for all shopping needs. The Publix supermarket was closer but more expensive. The villa was very clean and tidy. Very spacious for the 7 of us including a 6,4 and 2 year old. Each of the four bedrooms had lots of Wardrobe space. The master bedroom was a lovely size and had a huge bed big enough for me the wife and 3 daughters to fit. It had a lovely big on suite bathroom with bath and walk in shower. There is another bathroom and third toilet so plenty for all of us to share without feeling on top of each other. The kitchen was nice and big with all the necessary amenities for the stay which we used a few times to eat in. We made use of the washing machine and dryer located next to the large garage which also had a working table air hockey and pool table. Although there was some need to refurb to the pool table as a pocket had a hole in which dropped the balls to the floor and with small children it could hurt them. There was also a spacious dining room at the front of the house with an additional two sofa's for a place to sit and relax. The main front room looked out into the swimming pool and after working out the remote controls it was very nice to relax in front of the tv and watch some Netflix after a day at the park. The swimming pool was a nice size and warm enough for my three girls to swim in every day.

On the two occasions we had to call the maintainance company we left voice messages and we received a call within the hour and the issues were addressed. Overall me and my family had a wonderful stay and felt very at home at the villa. I would highly recommend it and would consider returning in the future. Thank you Tim.
