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.
The Central Florida 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?
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.

"Another fabulous holiday at Highgate Retreat!"
This is the third review I'm writing on this property in three years, so you'll understand that we love it! We are a family of three and this villa just feels perfect for us, spacious but not so large that you lose one another. The owners carry out updates every year, this year we there were new sofas, flooring and appliances and it's re-assuring to know the owners take such a personal interest in keeping the property in excellent condition. The villa location is quiet and peaceful away from the chaos of the theme parks and more than ever we enjoyed mixing our time between the main attractions and spending time enjoying the lovely pool area. The planting gives you a wonderful degree of privacy and it's always fun watching the lizards, squirrel we even spotted a raccoon this year. The garage is well equipped which always appeals to our son and he equally enjoyed flicking through Netflix when time allowed. Unsurprisingly we've booked again for next year and are already looking forward to returning. Thank you Toni and Martin for keeping the villa in such fabulous order and being so pleasant and easy to deal with.
Thank you for such a lovely review, we are glad you like all the upgrades we have recently done to the villa. As always, we look forward to having you and your family stay again next year. All the best, Toni & Martin

"Perfect, Magical Experience ...."
What can I say, a perfect experience. Toni & Martin were so helpful from our first enquiry till when we returned, nothing was too much trouble. They answered questions quickly, sent us information they picked up whilst they were out at there villa which helped us plan our holiday and the information about the villa was spot on. On arrival at the villa it was spotlessly clean and well cared for. The villa is very spacious and well appointed with everything to make your stay very comfortable. The pool is clean and well maintained, the kids lived in it when we weren't out and about. The villa is perfectly located, the supermarkets are a few minutes away, Disney attractions are all within 20 - 30 and there are so many restaurants you are spoilt for choice. I would highly recommend this villa any would certainly use it again when we hopefully return to Florida. Thank you Toni & Martin.
Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review. We are glad you found the information we sent useful and it helped plan your holiday (this is one holiday where you need to plan your days ahead). We hope to welcome you and your family again.

Our 4th visit since 2009 to this lovely villa, which really says it all. It really is perfect and although previous to us finding this place we did stop in other places including hotels, we now wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The villa layout is perfect with a lovely open plan dining/kitchen/lounge area. Generous bedrooms and a fantastic pool. It is spotlessly clean, continually updated and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. There is only one problem with writing this review I feel like I want to keep this place all to myself!!
Thank you for your lovely review and for staying with us for the last four years! We look forward to welcoming you and your family for your next visit to Florida!

"Fantastic villa, Immaculately kept, Great location for Disney World"
This is our 3rd visit to Disney World and this was by far the nicest villa we have stayed in. It was a great size villa for our family visit and was very well kept, best of all, it was spotlessly clean! It was situated in a good location only a short drive to Disney and the other theme parks, it was also located in a gated community which was nice. The pool and patio area was lovely plus an added bonus it was nice and private as it is landscaped around and lit at night which was nice when we was using the pool in the evening. The games room was a great hit with the children which gave us a bit of peace and quiet to sit out and have a drink on the patio!
Thank you for your kind review! We are always pleased to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay and had a great holiday. We would love to book you in our villa again should you decide to return to Florida. All the Best Toni & Martin

"A fabulous villa, as great as the reviews suggest!"
This is the first time we have rented a villa after finding it on Trip Advisor, so I was a little cautious. The owners maintained excellent communication and really helped with preparing for the holiday. As all the reviews suggest, the villa is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It's in a peaceful location and allows you to retreat to somewhere more peaceful than the theme parks. There are good facilities nearby (supermarkets / banks / restaurants), so you really are well established there. Our 6 year old son loved the pool and the games room although it's a struggle to fit everything in. We hope to return in the future and this will be top of our list of villas to try and rent!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We like to be as helpful as possible and glad this put your mind at rest with renting a private villa. As long as we have the availability we welcome you back to the villa any time, thank you for booking with us.

"Beautiful spacious villa with everything you need and more!"
We stayed in this lovely villa for two weeks at the end of July / beginning of August 2013 with our two daughters aged 11 and 16. Throughout the booking process Toni & Martin, the owners, could not have been more helpful and friendly. All enquiries were dealt with promptly and all arrangements were made without any hassle. The villa was immaculate when we arrived and we found it to be an oasis of calm after busy days in the theme parks! The villa is very well equipped and it was very useful to have a telephone and wireless internet access all included in the price! The games room was enjoyed by all, even our teenage daughter couldn't resist a game of pool! The equipment in the games room is top quality and there were plenty of pool cues and spare darts tips! Unfortunately the air conditioning suffered a lightning strike one day and stopped working, the villa soon felt very warm. The management company were called first thing the next morning and showed up within a couple of hours, the air conditioning was repaired the same day which was great service and much appreciated in the 95 degree heat! We had lots of fun in the pool, which was lovely and clean. There was an amazing amount of wildlife to see in the bushes, safely just the other side of the pool screen! We could not fault the villa at all and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay around this area. There is a Walmart less than 10 minutes north and there is also a Publix supermarket about 5 minutes south so stocking up on supplies is very easy! Many thanks to Toni & Martin for their great service and help with our booking and questions!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful review! We are so pleased you all enjoyed your stay in the villa so much and we welcome you back at anytime!

"Villa is perfect like it is now"
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!

"Best Holiday Ever!!"
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!

"Spacious Comfortable Villa in a great location"
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.
