About MICHAEL A COSTEN

My wife and I are a retired couple who fell in love with the Highlands Reserve at Davenport and purchased our house/villa. We visit our house/villa twice a year for 6 weeks at a time. We have an excellent management company who take care of our property and our guests for us and if guests wish to contact us directly either by phone or email we answer the same day. Both we and our management company do our utmost to make our guests feel welcome so they are able to go out, enjoy themselves and come home to relax after a busy day.

MICHAEL A COSTEN purchased this villa in 2012

Why MICHAEL A COSTEN chose Davenport

Lovely well kept community with a mixture of permanent and rental villas. our villa overlooks the 5th and 6tjh fairways

What makes this villa unique

One of the unique benefits of our villa is that it has a large balcony off the master bedroom. You can sit out there and enjoy the views and the occasional balloons flying past. Mainly on the week-ends.

Great home from home villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 14 days at Orlando Joy situated within the Highlands Reserve.

Overall the accommodation was perfect in almost every department. It was very much a home from home.

Rooms were all very spacious with copious amounts of cupboard space provided to unpack.

The ration of rooms to bathrooms/showers was perfect and the showers were great.

The master bedroom has a magnificent veranda which overlooks the 6th tee.

All rooms have flat screen TVs and there was even a separate Cinema room with a massive screen with a great selection of DVDs to choose from. Perhaps maybe a few more kids choices would have been more of benefit to our group but a good selection none the less.

Great space throughout the Villa to relax and unwind after long hot days at the various nearby attractions. The Disney parks were a short drive (15mins) and Universal (apx 25mins)

The pool was great and just what our party needed. The kids loved it and were in it all the time. The pool is surrounded by a safety fence which was ideal given our smallest party member was at that age where you can't let out your sight so it was a good peace of mind.

The kitchen was of good standard and the ice machine in the freezer was a great help. The kitchen is left completely empty so it is perhaps an idea to bring your own kit of essentials such as dish cloths, tea towels and cleaning liquids to get you started. We found this out to our detriment as we stopped off st the shops prior to arriving at the Villa to find we had to go back out again. Our party would also have benefited from a child's high chair as none was provided.

The house has A/C which was perfect to come home to after long hot days.

The house is managed locally by a private company who were excellent and responded to any questions we had very quickly.

We had access to a supermarket, pub and various restaurants all within walking distance. We had dinner at Applebee's and breakfast at IHOP both were excellent and would recommend.

Overall we would highly recommend this Villa it is really lovely, spacious and comfortable which helped make our holiday a memorable one! If we ever manage to get back over we would have no hesitation about trying to book this Villa again.

Orlando Joy Villa Highland Reserve

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even more impressive than the photo's on the web site. It certainly was a luxury villa with everything needed for a great holiday. The location is excellent for both theme parks and shopping with Publix supermarket and eating out places within a minutes ride.Would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.
