Our 3 bedroom vacation home is located in the exclusive Highgate Park a beautiful 2005 built villa. Highgate Park is a small community with a children's play area and tennis court on site, just a 5 minute walk from the villa. It is the only gated community situated in the villages of Legacy Park. It is ideally situated approx 12-15 minutes drive from Disneyworld and situated in an idyllic setting just 2 miles South of the 192 on the Western side of Highway 27, with its profusion of shops, restaurants and attractions. For the golf lovers there are six championship golf courses within just a 5-10 minute drive from the villa.
The villa is managed by an extremely reliable Management Company, ensuring the villa and pool is kept to our high standards of cleanliness who are on call 24/7.
We also hire a professional gardener who keeps our gardens maintained.
Seven days is our minimum booking. The prices shown are per week, if you wish to stay for example for ten days we also have a nightly rate.
We require £80pw ($120pw) booking deposit to secure your dates, with the balance being due 8 weeks before you are due to arrive. A security deposit of £200 ($300) is also due with your balance and is fully refundable once the villa has been vacated and inspected.
If you require pool heating this will incur an additional charge.
The Florida / Orlando Disney Area region
Orlando Florida has to be one of the most popular locations in the world for holidays, with excellent weather and theme parks just a short drive away; Disney World, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and the Kennedy Space Station. You can visit one of the many water parks around for a relaxing day or for something different you can go to Gatorland for that exhilarating Air Boat ride experience and get up close to those native alligators. If you fancy getting away from all the entertainment then there are some of the loveliest beaches you could wish for in Florida with its 1,800 miles of coastline, translating to sandcastle-building, surfing, fishing and kite-flying fun. To the East coast is Cocoa beach which is the closest approximately 40-45 miles, which is only about an hours drive. To the West coast are the gorgeous award winning beaches of Clearwater, St Petersburg and Sarasota with their clean sugar white sand, about a 90min drive. For the golfers, this really is golfers paradise with the world class Champions Gate resort which has a 36 hole course and the Reunion Golf resort which consists of three 18 hole courses just 2 miles away. There are three more prestigious golf courses not far from the villa with at least half a dozen more golf courses within the Davenport area. For the skateboarders there is an excellent Vans Skate Park located in the Festival Bay Mall, skateboards and all safety equipment can be hired very reasonably here. Or why not go and watch a Basketball Match or an American Football game for something different?
The Davenport / Highgate Park area
Highgate Park is an exclusive gated community set in the Villages of Legacy and is very well maintained by the Homeowners Association who continue to maintain the villa gardens and all the lawn areas. Highgate Park has its own Childrens play area plus a tennis court just a 5min walk from the villa. There is a shopping complex located within a 5min drive on Highway 27 with a good Supermarket, Pharmacy, Bank and various Restaurants. A 24hr Wal-Mart supermarket is also close by.

We had nice weather and enjoyed these days to play golf and swim in the wonderful heated pool.
We appreciated all the improvements Tony & Martin made in their beautiful villa.
As always services with Westridge management was great.
This is our second year in the villa ( 3 month each time ) and we already look forward for next year.
For us your villa is perfect like it is now
Thank you for your lovely words, it sounds like you had a fantastic vacation. We are looking forward to you being our guests again for next year!

We had the most fantastic holiday in Florida with our 6 year old twins....
Highgate Retreat was perfect in every way, perfectly located for all the parks, perfectly comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. The play room was a massive hit with the kids and the pool was also brilliant.
Toni and Martin were an absolute pleasure to deal with and gave us lots of helpful tips.
We were all so upset when we had to leave to come home and we will definately be back in Florida soon.
Best wishes the Chetwood Family Upper Basildon Berkshire UK
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad you all had a great holiday and that you found our tips useful. We would love to book you in our villa again should you decide to return to Florida. Thank you!

We stayed at Highgate Retreat for 24 nights in August 2012. We loved everything about the villa from the moment we arrived and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anybody. As a family with four young children (aged 8, 6, 4, and 1), the villa suited all of our needs. It was spacious, air-conditioned, clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is a lovely house to relax and come home to after a long day at the parks. Our children (and us) particularly loved the private pool and the games room. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed to look after our family including our toddler i.e. cot, highchair etc and we had ample supplies of crockery, linen and towels.
The owners of the property were extremely helpful and attentive from the moment we booked and were available and happy to answer any queries we had.
The location was great too very easy to find on arrival, in a secure gated location and close to all of the theme parks and very close to shops and restaurants with a 24 hr walmart less than five minutes away..
In short we would love to stay at Highgate Retreat again and will be recommending the villa to all of our friends. Our only complaint was that we did not make enough use of the games room and pool as we were all so exhausted after so many long fun-filled days at the theme parks!!!
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We aim to please each of our guests, we are glad you all had such a fabulous holiday.
