This amazing five bedroom executive luxury villa at Highlands Reserve backs onto the conservation area which allows for uninterrupted sleep away from the golf course lawn-mowers. The only thing that walks past the pool is an occasional stork! A gin and tonic on the terrace watching the most fantastic sunsets will wash away those work or domestic stresses.
Close to the theme parks and shopping, but far enough away for that well deserved rest, this beautiful villa has a larger private 35' swimming pool, large terrace area, and ample seating and dining facilities for al fresco dining. This villa is perfect for a two family holiday, offering great value for money.
The lounges are both spacious and comfortable, allowing for adults to have personal time away from the family bustle if they wish.

Highlands Reserve resort is a high-end quality estate which offers peace and tranquility, but yet is so close to the theme parks. A great retreat after a laughter-busting day in the parks.
If you want beaches, then Daytona is an hour and quarters drive away or Clearwater the same towards Tampa. Maps or the FROMERS guide in the villa will detail other beaches for you to enjoy.
There is also the NASCAR car racing at Daytona, but be sure to research this if you are keen to attend as this is very popular and often sell-out.
