Clean and spacious home very close to Disney, Universal and Orlando Airport. We had a great vacation and took advantage of the pool and spa, especially when returning from a hot day at Disney. The home is close to grocery store, liquor store, restaurants, gas station etc. We enjoyed having our meals outside next to the pool. All bedrooms have a tv which is greatly appreciated. The rental property has all the amenities you would have in your own home which makes the holiday that much worry free. Being able to have a snack at 3:00 when you can't sleep is great ! Waking up and having your first coffee in your pyjamas is a luxury. Eating what you really want for your meals without breaking the bank is wonderful also. All in all a great stay at a wonderful home. Thanks Chad

Awesome vacation rental
Awesome vacation rental
I've rented several houses before and this was definitely the best one. Very nice house with great decor, and everything you need to be comfortable. We had to call the management company once when we arrived because our lock box code to get the key didn't work, and because one of the shower faucets wasn't working. The management company was not the friendliest, but at least very easy to reach. The pool was great - we had it heated but I was worried it might still be too cold to swim with night temps in the 40s and day temps in the 60s, but the pool was very warm. I loved that we didn't have to do a laundry list of things when we left as has been the case in most house I've rented. The price was very reasonable for this house, and we liked the location too. Not too close to Disney, and not too far. My husband played golf in the complex and loved it. All in all, this house was amazing and we'll definitely be back.

Very comfortable; lovely decor

For our week of going to Spring Training baseball games we decided this year to find a central location near Orlando rather than staying in hotels. This house was perfect for us--less than 20 minutes from Disney, 30 minutes from Lakeland, and only a bit more than an hour from Tampa and beaches on the Atlantic. The neighborhood was very quiet and we enjoyed watching the golfers on the adjacent course. There were six of us in our group and we did not feel at all crowded. The Publix grocery store just up the street was very convenient. (Try the pizza place next door; really good). And down at the intersection of US-27 and I-4 there are dozens and dozens of restaurants and stores for anything you might not be able to find at Publix. The owner, Chad, was very responsive and helpful when we called before our trip to extend our reservation a couple days.

Nice home , much better value than a resort.
This was our second time that we have rented a pool home in Highlands Reserve and the first time at this home. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay at a nice home at a reasonable price. I couldnt keep my daughter out of the pool.The house and pool were very well maintained.

Owner response: Duane, Thank you for the kind words in regards to our home. We strive to make our property a comfortable and well maintained environment that feels like home. Knowing the cost of the surrounding entertainment in the Orlando area, we also feel that it is best to do so at a reasonable price. We hope you will consider us again if your future travel plans bring you back to the Disney area. Thanks again, The Zarbaugh's
A wonderful, relaxing stay!
A wonderful, relaxing stay!
Thank you! We enjoyed every part of your home. We knew from the moment we walked in that our stay was going to be everything we had hoped for. The home was very clean, which is our top priority. Everything was in great working order and in top shape. The furniture and beds were comfortable. The view out the back onto the golf course was amazing. We are looking forward to renting again when the opportunity is there! The location of your home is great. We flew into Orlando for this vacation (35 to 40 minutes) but realized that Tampa is also close enough to fly into and drive the hour to Highlands Reserve.

Owner response: Randy, Thank you so much for the kind words, which validates all of the time we have put into making this a home that we are proud of. Your family were wonderful guests, and we truly enjoyed having you stay in our home. I look forward to hearing from you again, and appreciate your trust in booking with us. Sincerely, Chad
Just got back from your wonderful villa! The decor was so beautiful and the house was immaculate...much better than any home we have stayed at in the Disney area. We truly felt at home and our kids didn't want to leave. The pool was absolutely wonderful and the heated spa was just what we needed after a long day at the parks! The close proximity to the attractions made our visit even more enjoyable.My husband can't wait to bring his golf clubs next year! We will definately be staying with you again in the future! Thank you again for all of your help answering our questions prior to our arrival. This was the best vacation we have ever had!

Firstly thanks for all your help prior to our stay in your fantastic villa. Everything was great, your place is lovely and my grand daughter loved,as she called it the Mickey & Minney room. We visited a couple of freinds with villas while we were in Florida and your villa was by far the best we seen. I would like to wish you good luck with the villa and we will be in touch the next time we return to Florida Best regards Sandy
