The Florida region
The Highlands Reserve Villa offers the perfect location to explore Florida's numerous and exciting attractions, just 15 minutes from Disney Resort, and a short drive from Seaworld, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Centre and the Everglades.
Highway 192 (2 miles) offers a wealth of restaurants and shopping outlets.
Having been to Florida ourselves on numerous occasions we have discovered that there is a lot more to see than the normal theme parks. Beautiful locations a short drive away are Kelly Park, Blue Springs, Homosassa Springs, Bok Tower and many more, please feel free to contact us for further details of the alternative Florida.
Alternatively you can enjoy a round of golf on Highlands Reserve 18-hole championship golf course or relax in the quiet ambience of Highlands Reserve surrounded by citrus groves and pine trees in one of Florida's most picturesque conservation areas.
The quite location of the villa is within 3 minutes drive of a Publix Supermarket and Applebees Restaurant and many take aways at the small Berry Town Centre Shopping Development.

"Excellent House and Base"
We travelled with 3 children (ages 1, 9 and 13) and found the house excellent for our needs and great value. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms (we didn't use half), a games room the kids enjoyed and… More
Thanks for your kind words. We try to give excellent customer service and are always available for any questions that prospective guests may have. Margaret & Graham

"Great villa, great location, great facilities"
The booking process for this villa was the most straight forward that I have ever experienced. Communication with 'Graham' the owner was both prompt and informative along with him providing very helpful information.
Instructions for getting to the villa arrived promptly, and had a map of the area enclosed - another thoughtful extra.
The villa itself is lovely, it was very comfortable with extremely comfortable beds which is a big plus while on holiday. The facilities available at the villa were also excellent, all kitchen crockery etc that you could wish for, and the games room was great with all the varied games it had, and all the TV's worked well with many channels. The games room was good for my son in between trips out. The location of the villa is excellent having a straight forward route to all the attractions and other areas of Orlando if you wish to explore. The 'Berry' shopping area just a few yards along from the entrance to the complex had a good supermarket and a good restaurant/bar 'Applebees' which Graham had recommended and we frequented often.
There is a person in resort for any problems you may have and on our second day found that the phone line and wifi had stopped working, but one phone call and an engineer was arranged and fixed the next day with a visit from the in resort guy to check it was okay. Excellent response and service, we were very impressed.
There was only three of us who stayed at the villa but it had more than enough space for 11 people inside. The pool area was lovely, clean and comfortable with lovely views of the reserve but the space around the pool may make it difficult for a large party to sit out all at the same time, but with some in the pool and some not it would be okay.
We would definitely recommend this villa and would stay here again when visiting Florida.
Thanks for the review,Harry from the management company does a great job. Good to know Serena enoyed the villa and her stay including the facilities nearby. It will be nice if she is able to return.

"Highlands Reserve - great location - great complex - great accomodation -"
I have used & stayed at this Villa 4 times now & each time I go back to the USA (Florida) I take the opportunity to stay here.The location is good with the interstate 4 - Junction 55 just a couple of miles down the Road.this gives access to Tampa one way (45 minutes) & Orlando ( All Disney parks/Universal/Prime Outlets/Premier Outlets/Celebration) All just within 30 minutes drive.location is good for the H27 & the 194 with all the food outlets you can think of.Locally there is a Publix supermarket (15 minutes walk) on a service area with 2 Pubs (1 irish & 1 English owned) an Applebees Restaurant and various takeaway food outlets.There is a Large Wallmart & additional food outlets a 10 minute drive away.The accomodation is spotless and regularly serviced to a very high standard.The company responsible for the upkeep of the villa locally are a phone call away & when a light bulb in the kitchen went out it was replaced the same day.The pool is cleaned weekly by the same company poolman & it is nice to cool off after a day out at the parks.There is a games room with pool Table/Air hockey/Darts/etc that kept my grandchildren happy for hours.This villa is well worth a visit anytime of the year.
Brian is a valued regular and has always left the villa in great condition when he leaves. Good to know the villa is still as good as his first visit, good to know the upgrades are appreciated.

The house and the location was superb, it was so nice to come home from a long day at the parks and relax in and out of the pool.
The kids loved the pool.
Super market and shops being only 2 minuites up the road also a plus.
Having the car also meant being no more than 20 minuites from all off the parks.
I would recommend this property to anyone, its great.
Karen & gary were really good to deal with and excellent guests. Good to know they appreciated the villa and location, we have tried to make it as family friendly and relaxing as possible.

"Stunning villa in great location"
Along with family stayed at Graham and Margarets villa during January.
What a pleasure to arrive after a long flight to find everything pristine and ready for use (Dropped bags and retired for the night)
On reflection the villa is spacious, well maintained and a true home from home.
Near major highways for access to Disney and other Florida attractions eg Kissimee and Clearwater. But it is also an oasis of calm to return to after a hectic day.
Local facilities for shopping and eating are within walking distance and are of a good standard.
It was also reassuring to have a friendly local contact if needed.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would reccomend it to others. We would definitely go again.
Thanks again from Bill (Alwyn) and Jean Bailey.
Dear Bill & Jean, its really good to know you enjoyed the villa and the location. Thanks for the review and hope you are able to visit again soon. Kind regards, Margaret & Graham

"Clean,Spacious Villa - Super Stay!!"
I highly recommend this really nice,spacious,clean villa to anyone looking for a relaxing comfortable vacation spot. We traveled in a group of 6 and had a wonderful time. Since we got a lot of good information about nearby attractions from the owner of this beautiful villa, it was easy to decide where to go for fun and food!!!! The villas location is a real plus since it is only about 10min away from Disney which is especially nice since you are home quickly after spending a day in the Parks......just to be able to enjoy a cool drink at the private pool side and relax. The house was also well stocked with games so we had no problem at all to just have a down day at the villa. The kitchen is well equipped so it was not a problem to enjoy even a nice home cooked meal at the house or just setting up for a BBQ since there is also a gas grill that is available for the guests use.
We enjoyed our stay overall and hope to return soon.
Hi Renate & Andreas, really good to know you thoroughly enjoyed the villa and all its facilities and the quiet yet convenient location is exactly what you were after. Hopefully you can get back there soon. Kind regards, Margaret & Graham

"Beautiful house in a superb location"
We stayed at Graham and Margaret's house for 10 days in January 2013 and it surpassed everything we expected.
For one thing, the house is huge. It's great value if you are travelling with a few people as there are several bedrooms, many of which are either en-suite or have bathrooms directly opposite. Not to mention the swimming pool, several televisions and garage which acts as a games room.
Secondly, the location. Not only is the Highlands Reserve beautiful and quaint, it's superbly located for anything you want to do in and around Orlando. A short jaunt from all the Disney attractions, it's also walking distance to the nearest grocery store, pub, restaurants and you can drive to either coast in under 2 hours.
Finally, after a few days you'll really find this house feels like a home as opposed to a hotel room. You have everything you need and the flexibility to come and go as you like. There is loads of tourist information throughout the house as well, including a few maps which always come in handy.
We thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay in Orlando.
Dear Todd, Sam, Fergus & family - thanks for taking the trouble to write a review, much appreciated. Great to know you enjoyed the villa and its location and it exceeded your expectations. It will be nice to see you again in the future. Kind regards, Graham & Margaret.

"Spacious, well equiped villa in a great location."
We were in contact with the owners many times prior to our holiday, who gave lots of tips and helpful advice. The owners arranged for their Christmas tree to be up and decorated for our arrival, which was a lovely touch. It was great having 2 lounge areas, as we are 2 families, which gave some of us our own space. The games room has lots of different things to do. The villa has all the amenities you would want in your own home, it was good to have a washing machine and tumble dryer to use and no washing to do when we arrived back home. The area is superb, quiet and friendly, as well as in walking distance from Berry Town Centre with Publix supermarket and other shops. The owners had carefully put together files of places to go and things to do, which was just what we needed to source some of the things we wanted to do other than theme parks. This is our second time in Florida, the first 6 years ago we spent in a hotel, and this time was even better due to having a villa, we were thrilled with our experience. We'd definitely stay in a villa again. Thank you for making our holiday one to remember.
Dear Yvette & family thanks for a lovely review it was good to know you had a great time and you loved the villa. No trouble putting up the Xmas tree it really helps to make a Xmas in Florida. Hopefully you will use us again when visiting the sunshine state. Love Margaret & Graham
