There is an easy flow to one story home from the entrance way through the living/dining room, to the kitchen and eating area, to the family room and finally the extended deck area with large pool and spa completely screened in and private.

The main living/dining room is outfitted with new comfy couches and a bookcase full of board games that is perfect for kids of all ages, and a formal dining table which seats six. Three large windows provide plenty of natural light. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you will need to prepare any and all meals from a snack to a full course buffet.

A large flat screen TV with a DVD player with 49 movies for the entire family and a Playstation with 19 game choices and dual controls will help keep all ages entertained. The screened in pool and spa area has an extended pool deck and a child safety fence to keep the little ones safe.

Shopping, restaurants, Disney, golf and other sought after attractions area a short and easy drive. A truly comfortable home to return to at the end of your day.

Area Info

Highgate Park is the envy of most communities in the area and actually backs onto a protected conservation area. We are situated only 10 miles from the Gates of Disney and yet are far enough away to enjoy peaceful evenings relaxing in your own newly resurfaced pool or walks around the neighborhood. The easy road system allows you to reach nearby supermarkets 1 mile away (some 24/7), restaurants, post office, banks, chemists (drugstores), gas stations (petrol), and a library within minutes. There is a terrific children's playground and tennis court within the gated community.

All newly added amenities this year including TV's in all bedrooms, 6 ceiling fans, loaded with extra beach and bath towels, cupboards full of dishware and silverware/utensils for cooking, coolers, pool floats, stereo with DVD player, coolers and a beach blanket and all the comforts of home...as my guests have all said this is not your typical rental...it's more like a home away from home!

About Linda Carnevali

My husband and I have been Realtors for a combined 43 years...we know what to look for in a property and truly found the perfect place four our vacations as well as our guests.

We take guest satisfaction very seriously that is why we improve this property every time we stay. We treat this house as our second home that s why you will find more "comforts of home" here than you would anywhere else.

I am one of those people that before I unpack my bags or bring them up to a room in a hotel I need to approve the hotel room first...sometimes it takes many trips to find the room I will feel comfortable in so rest assured this house is just like home...clean, bright and in perfect condition.

I know what it means to have great service and great amenities and feel I provide both to my guests.

Linda Carnevali purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Carnevali chose Highgate Park

We have vacationed in Disney area since 1994 and felt it was time to own a piece of the MAGIC! we looked at over 782 homes online, viewed 50 in person and bought this one...it had everything I knew I could make into the perfect vacation spot! We just updated again with all new amenities, new air conditioning, freshly painted and all new ceramic flooring and carpeting!

What makes this house unique

Only 10 miles to Disney with no traffic was a huge plus for us, all new features including furnishings and flooring, gated community, private pool area surrounded by privacy hedges all around makes for the perfect vacation destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of staying at this house in Orlando in March. The location was perfect for us to go to Disney World and it was great to be able to actually stay in a house and not a hotel. From the minute we stepped in the door, it was so warm and welcoming. We loved the Disney decorated bathroom! The pool was terrific for us to unwind after walking all day at Disney. We always like to stay in houses when we travel because we don't like to eat every meal out and like to have more space to relax if we choose to do so. We have stayed at several houses and dealt with different owners and I have to say that I typically don't write reviews like this one but dealing with these owners was such a pleasant experience and they made us feel more like invited house guests to their home than "renters." We are already looking forward to going back either later this year or next year and taking our grandchildren with us this time! Thanks for adding to our great time at Disney! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends.

The house was very nice, clean and just like home

  • 5 of 5

We have been here for 6 weeks. The house and the owners were great. The house was very clean, well decorated and comfortable beds. This is our third time staying in Florida and this house had exceeded all previous rentals. When you walk in the door you feel relaxed because the house is so clean and nicely decorated. You think you are visiting a friends house. Everything in the description is accurate. The kitchen is so well stocked with dishes, and pots and pans there was more then enough. It was just like home. The bedrooms and bathrooms which are important to us were very clean and comfortable.

There were lots of linens and towels for the house and the pool. You will not run out. The owners made sure that there were enough incidentals like paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap there to get you started so when you arrive all you need are some groceries and you are ready. The big Publix store is only 3 minutes away.

We can't say enough about the house and the owners Linda and Raymond were great to work with. The pool was great and there are lots of lounge chairs and a large table to enjoy eating outside.

We will be back next year.

This house was like the needle in the haystack and we were lucky to find it. We would really recommend this house to anyone looking to have a great vacation and not having to worry about the house you are staying in.

Thanks Linda and Raymond for sharing you beautiful Home!!!

Great 2 week vacay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 2 weeks over the Canada Day and Fourth of July holiday. We couldn't have asked for a better property. The house is in a quiet gated community 15 minutes from Disney, the Outlet Malls, food, restaurants and almost everything else. Most relaxing vacation I have had in years. Looking forward to our next visit already. Thank you Linda
