Villa in Highlands Reserve, Davenport, Florida, USA - Lovely Villa In A Peaceful Location And Only 12 Miles From Disney
Colleen & Laurie Melville
About Colleen & Laurie Melville
Having visited Florida twice, staying on Highlands Reserve on both occasions, we decided to buy a holiday home there as we enjoyed it so much. We stay in this villa regularly and treat it as our second home so we have set it up to how we like it. As such we think it is a well appointed villa with good quality equipment and facilities to make a stay there very comfortable.
Colleen & Laurie Melville purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Colleen & Laurie Melville chose Highlands Reserve
Stayed there previously and loved it. Looked at several other areas and liked Highlands Reserve the most. While still being close enough to all the local attractions it is a very peaceful place to unwind after the noise and chaos of the parks.

Exciting Holiday Home
This home was wonderful, plenty of space, very clean, lovely pool. We had a wonderful holiday and would really love to come back to this home.
It’s quiet location was ideal to relax away from the parks with a wide choice of restaurants along the way and a Walmart just up the road.
Perfect for us.
Lovely and clean
Eight of us stayed here for our two week Florida visit. The villa was well maintained and clean. Plenty of everything from towels to pots. No problem for eight people as plenty of room. Pool nice and clean done every week. Beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend
Fabulous villa with views of the golf course
What a wonderful property. We loved every moment of our 18 day family holiday here. This property was recommended to me by my sister who stayed here in June 2017. Her recommendation did not disappoint. The property is located on the Highlands reserve the community with stunning views of the golf course from the house private pool area. The house was spacious and beautifully decorated and Coleenand Laurie thought of everything. The games room in the garage was especially good and together with the pool was a great way to wind down at end of a busy day in the parks. The house was equipped with everything we needed and more . We have no hesitation in recommending this property and look forward to returning sometime again in the future.
Perfect for our holiday
We very much enjoyed our stay here and found the villa to be spacious, clean, tidy and with everything thing we needed. There are two doubles and two twins so would suit a variety of family sizes or even possibly two families sharing.
Sadly we couldn’t use the pool but only because it rained too much in the first week making the water cold (heating is possible but we opted not to as there were only a few days we could have used it).
Tips: check out Bok Tower for a day as an alternative to Orlando. Buy basics when you arrive (e.g. salt/pepper) from one of the dollar stores locally as it’s cheaper. There is a good one in Posner Park and another opposite Berry Town Centre. Publix is best for bread. The Premium outlets are great for shopping but make sure you get your discount vouchers first (e.g join their membership schemes in advance etc.).
We have loved this very comfortable and well equipped villa. It was hard to leave !
This was a great property to stay in on Highland Reserve. Spacious, clean and comfortable with a good sized pool overlooking the golf course, this has been the perfect base for the theme parks and easy access to the I4. It was easy to book, the owners were very helpful and Laurie always replied quickly if we had a query before arriving. Overall an excellent experience which we would recommend. Thank you !
Many thanks for your kind review, these help us and particularly future guests wishing to book or villa.
We look forward to having you back in the not too distant future.
Kind regards from,
Colleen and Laurie.
We loved it all, the house was beyond our expectations hope to return soon.
