Highgrove villa description
Villa Arete is our beautiful Mediterranean style villa within the gated community of High Grove conveniently situated where Highway 27 meets the 192.
The villa has just been remodelled with an interior designed finish which provides quiet, understated luxury both inside and out. It offers an oasis of peace and tranquility but with the added benefit of being close to all the action.
The villa benefits from a large open plan living area, fully equipped kitchen and dining area with a separate room for a washer and dryer. There are 4 spacious bedrooms, one king with ensuite, one queen and 2 twin rooms, plus a family bathroom and separate wc downstairs. The lounge and all bedrooms have TV and cable, the villa also has wifi access and free local calls. The garage has been converted in to a games room.
There is a private swimming pool and spa and the outside space benefits from luxury patio loungers and furniture to ensure our guests can relax and take full advantage of the sunshine
We called the villa Arete which in ancient Greek means to be the best and that's what we've strived to achieve with the design and finish.
Disney and all major attractions such as Universal, Seaworld and Aquatica are only a 10-15 minute drive away. High Grove community has a clubhouse with a large communal pool, fully equipped fitness room, games room and children's play park. Just outside the gates is a family bar and 5 minutes down the road is a 24 hour Walmart and a variety of shops,restaurants and bars. The coast with beautiful beaches is only an hours drive away and you'll find several quality golf courses within a short drive.

Stayed at Villa Arete with my husband and 2 kids aged 9 and 13. we have stayed on High Grove estate 3 times now, and this villa has to be the best so far. The villa is lovely, with all the things you need and much more. On arriving at the villa the management had left us some food and fresh orange to tie us over till we went shopping ....a nice touch we thought ! the villa was very clean and well maintained, we really didnt want to come home :( We would loved to stay here again on our return to Florida Thank you the Ann and the management for letting stay at this wonderful villa The brookes family

Villa AreteGuest comment entered by owner
We stayed in Villa Arete from 7th April to 21st April 2013, I would just like to say that we had a fabulous time and the villa was all that we expected it would be from looking at the website, we have stayed on the High Grove estate before some years ago and wanted to be in this location, again as it is ideal for all the theme parks, shops and restaurants and indeed the Irish restaurant just within the gates of High Grove was very nice, we had a lovely meal there on our first night. Our party consisted of three adults, two adult children and twins of 9, we found the villa very spacious and accommodated us all perfectly and we would certainly recommend this villa to our friends and family and we do hope to use the villa again upon our next visit to Florida. We found the management company to be efficient when we needed some information clarified and when there was a hiccup with the telephone system it was sorted promptly. Having the WiFi available was great and it enabled us to keep in contact with family in the UK. The heated pool was excellent as were all the facilities available to us in this lovely villa. I would just like to say that Ann and her family were very courteous and helpful if we had any questions or queries. The Allanson family

Super villaGuest comment entered by owner
The stay at your vacation home was great, and my daughter found the villa even better than expected. They both just loved their rooms and the game room was a big hit. Me and my husband loved the villa too. It stayed nice cool in it, I even had to turn the airco down to 80 degree, and turned it of at night. We loved the furniture and the tv was even bigger than the one in our house. My husband loved it. It was also nice that everything was provided; towels, blowdryer, beachtowels, handsoap, garbagebags etc. We had everything we needed. Also the free internet was great. This way we could keep in touch with our familly and friends. Thanks for letting us stay in your villa, it was just perfect for us. Next time we go back to Orlando we hope your villa is going to be available again. Unfortunately it won't be for at least 2 years. But until then we'll have great memmories about it, thanks to you. Hope to talk to you then, Carla, Calvin, Kaitlyn and Kelsey

"Great Villa!!"Guest comment entered by owner
We have just returned from a great stay at this Villa. The Villa is lovely, the rooms are all of a great size, it has a good games room, and fabulous pool that gets the sun for almost the entire day ! Having stopped at the Emerald Isle Resort the year before we found we much prefered High Grove, it was a lot quieter and was a great place to return to after a busy day at the parks ! Must also say a big thank you to the owners and the management company, both were superb - this was our first DIY visit to Florida and both could not have been more helpful in answering any questions that we had. Would have no hesitation in returning !

Stunning Holiday Home"Guest comment entered by owner
Stunning Holiday Home"
We are just home from a wonderful 2 week break and this accommodation was certainly a home from home to us, it spacious, clean, well maintained (even the pool area) and beautifully decorated. Our kids loved the house, loved the pool and didn't want to come home. I didn't want to go home :-( The high grove was a great location for the parks and the walmark although a car is essential. There are plenty of restaurants and take away places close by. I would strongly recommend this villa. Great value!!! Many thanks to Tevin & Ann for sharing their beautiful home with us and supplying us with an excellent customer care service!! We hope to be back soon. Thomas & Lynn McLaughlin

Really nice house
Really nice house
We loved the Villa Arete! Absolutely the nicest rental we have ever stayed in. The beautiful pictures don't do it justice. Very upscale Well stocked with every kind of kitchenware. Really everything you need.. We're from Atlanta and usually rent a house at Disney every year. This is our 3rd rental at High Grove, which is very convenient to the parks. They have a really nice clubhouse and we feel very secure there. Ann is so nice and helpful. We had a small issue when we arrived (debris in the pool from a storm). The management company responded immediately and corrected it (they are very nice, kind people). Thank you Ann, We will be back soon. Jerry & Denise Crater

Why the Owner Chose Highgrove:
We loved Orlando and decided we wanted to have our own villa to enjoy the sunshine and many attractions. When we saw High Grove we fell in the love with the mediterranean style homes. The community has a really warm welcoming feel and is very peaceful but still perfectly situated to reach the theme parks within minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The villa has a private pool, spa and fully equipped games room. The home has just been remodelled and special attention has been paid to comfort and style. The pool is south west facing and benefits from all day sun, perfect for swimming or al fresco dining.
