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.

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.

Thank you x

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful house, we really enjoyed living in the house for all 14 days and we could easily have stayed a little longer. We were visiting parks, outlets etc. But also enjoyed many days on the pool deck and the children were almost all the time in the pool. The house is equipped with all the things we might need, which is very nice. The location is fantastic, close to everything, yet a quiet place. A lovely area, I was jogging early in the morning and enjoyed the quiet, the view and not at least air balloons: o) I just jogged around in the neighborhood and not out on the main road. We will come back to Florida a second time, and you will certainly be the first we contact, we would love to return to your lovely house. We have already thought of being able to stay 2-3 weeks in your house instead of a summer vacation in Italy. The best greetings Karina and family

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Orlando many times before and this is by far the nicest property we have stayed at. It's clean, spacious, well equipped and near all the amenities.

The villa was clean, the beds comfortable, the pool heated and clean and the overall situation was close to amenities, Publix, restaurants and pubs. The only small problem was that we had agreed a late check out of 4.00 pm with the owner, but apparently the maintenance company did not know this and the cleaners came in whilst we were out playing golf. Luckily one of our party was not feeling well and was in when the cleaners came so told them this. When I returned from golf the head of the maintenance company was at the villa and was apologetic but stated that nobody had passed the late check out information to him.

Great Villa - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Highlands Reserve several times and have to say that this is definitely one of the best villas we have rented. The interior is clean and modern and very comfortable and the pictures accurately reflect the property. All communications with both the owner and management company were quick and easy before and during the stay. We had a very minor issue (with a bathroom sink plug) and after reporting it to the management company, it was fixed within 24 hours - no hassle at all. The pool was fabulous and private. We only used the games room once as the weather was so hot and humid so we preferred to stay inside with the air conditioning. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending to others. We would definitely rebook if we come back again to Highlands Reserve.
