There is a selection of board games, books for adults and a small selection of books for the little ones, all we ask is they are left in the Villa when you go home.
We loved this community the first time we drove around it, then after we bought our villa & stayed for the first time, we knew we had bought in the right location, so peaceful & quiet, stunning views over the golf course which has the benefits of no rear view neighbours.
Why Kids Love It
Not only do they have their own pool, we have also left a small selection of children's books along with some family-friendly board games and not forgetting the games room too.
Highlands Reserve is a very peaceful, quiet and desirable community for those wanting to holiday around the Disney and Orlando Area.
Located in the popular area of Davenport, just off highway US27 and close to Interstate 4 and highway US192, it's in a superb position for you and your family or friends to take advantage of all that Orlando and Florida has to offer.
Only a short drive from Orlando’s main attractions, the magic of Disney & all it has to offer is 15-20 minutes (17 miles) and just 25-30 minutes from many others wonderful attractions such as SeaWorld (19 miles) and Universal (23 miles). A 35-40-minute drive from Orlando International Airport (MCO) (35 miles).
We are only minutes from local supermarkets, including Walmart, and Publix.
There is also shopping at Posner Park about 10 minutes from our villa, which has amongst other retail outlets, JC Penny &Target, Posner Park also has an IMAX cinema you if you fancy catching the latest movies.
There are many great restaurants suiting every budget within an easy drive from our villa, Applebee’s, IHOP, Sweet Tomatoes (Souplantation), Cracker Barrel, Longhorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, and there are also some great takeaways outlets nearby which can be delivered or collected if you don’t feel like cooking, the Chinese or Thai (near the Publix) just minutes away are particularly good (we have tried both & portions are big!)
Favorite Places To Eat
We have a 1st-night tradition after arriving from the airport, our 1st meal is always at Applebee's, it's so close & with a Publix supermarket there too we can pop in to get some supplies for breakfast the next morning.
We can also be found at Cracker Barrel, Sweet Tomatoes, Longhorn & Olive Garden all are a very short drive.
You will also find a great Chinese & Thai Takeout restaurant near the Publix both have great food.

Year Purchased: 2017
About the owner: We are a British family, we live in North-West London.
We have enjoyed many vacations in the USA, mainly Boston and Florida. We feel very at home when visiting the USA which may have been a reason for buying a property!
Why this property? We looked a few communities when we were looking to buy a property, but decided Highlands Reserve was the one for us, it was very well placed to get out & about to explore what Florida has to offer.
We looked at many properties within Highlands Reserve, but when we walked into this villa - we instantly felt at home & could imagine ourselves living there and we hope you will feel at home too.
What struck us the 1st time we stayed was how peaceful & quiet it was, so it makes it a perfect location to chill out after a busy day at the parks.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We had a WONDERFUL HAPPY HOLIDAY in the villa from Sharon and her family.
Everything you need is there and more.
The villa is in a peaceful villa community /neighborhood, but also close to everything.
We enjoyed it to have our breakfast every morning outside at the pool deck under the lanai, overlooking the golfcourse.
And have a swim in the lovely pool when we came back from a day at the parks our from shopping, our from a day in the beautiful nature who is also close to the villa.
We definitely want to come back to this beautiful villa, we enjoyed our 15 days there.
Sharon and family thanks for having us.
We had a lovely time staying at your villa, gorgeous views from the pool and we appreciated the little touches for the kids (books, games etc) and the games room went down a treat too.
We will definitely be recommending to our friends.

We had a wonderful relaxing time at your villa, we were 2 families vacationing together and had plenty of room. The home is a nice size and very comfortable, the bedrooms are so nice, big & comfy, it's only a 1 story home but feel so big.
We made lots of nice memories & hope to come back again soon.

We had a terrific time in your house. It's very nice and located in a lovely peaceful location with great views on the golf course. Close to sites that have our interest.
You've thought about every detail, we do have experience in other rental houses in the Orlando area and can sure say this house has it all.
Happy to experience your property managers, Sue & John were there when we needed them.
We do come to Florida often, this is our 15th time, maybe a tip for other guests, visit Merril Island and watch a Rocket Launch (Space X) Check out for upcoming launches.
We sure do hope to come back!

We have had a really lovely time staying here at Highlands Reserve for 10 days. Such a lovely house and a great pool area nice surroundings.

The house was great, met all our expectations
26th Mar - 7th Apr 2018
We have been coming to Florida in the winter to get away from the cold & the snow, this is the first time we have stayed in a home with a pool and it was wonderful!
It was just the 2 of us in this big house, our family couldn’t come with us this year.
We enjoyed the home very much the accommodation was wonderful, the pool was nice & warm, we loved watching the golfers and early in the morning the groundskeepers tending to the course, we’re not golfers but it was fun to watch.
The neighbourhood was very peaceful
We went to a couple of spring training games for the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, the highlight of our trip was visiting Kennedy Space centre – it was amazing.
Well it’s time to leave, we enjoyed our stay here, thanks
We have had such a lovely time staying here. The house was great, the weather has been great so we enjoyed spending time in the pool.
We are all very sad about leaving, it has been a vacation full of joy & happiness, we would love to come back and stay in the house again.
Nice spacious home. Location is ideal for golfers. Backyard has a beautiful view of the golf course. Peaceful and clean.
Loved my stay.
We've had a lovely time staying in the villa, it is very luxurious, has everything we needed and felt very at home.
We loved the pool area with very comfortable furniture, the villa is in a great position for all amenities with Publix down the road, Walmart 3 miles away and Disney only 20 mins drive.
As the sign says Another Day in Paradise!
Looking forward to coming back again soon :-) :-)
