Wendy and Joe White purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Wendy and Joe White chose Highlands Reserve
The villa really stood out for us. (Literally and metaphorically!) We've had it a long time now - and are delighted and immensely proud of its quality, location and views. It sits in a prominent and very private position at the top of one of the highest points in Florida looking across the golf course and the panoramic views of Wellington Woods in the distance. Because the plot is so large, it allows the unique combination of privacy (through not being overlooked) and views. This is probably the most private deck in this part of Florida - which is important to us. The villa is aesthetically very pleasing and is laid out extremely well for families sharing the accommodation - so when it became available - we snapped it up!! We have been delighted with the villa ever since and await with great joy our opportunity to "get away from it all" and spend quality time sitting on the pool deck and "chilling out!" We narrowed down to Highlands Reserve since, from the outset, the development gave the impression that it was going to be high calibre and prestigious. It has certainly lived up to that expectation. We hoped that, due to being on a golf course, the area would be highly maintained - and that is exactly what has happened! Highlands Reserve has become a very sought after location for rental villas and justifies its excellent reputation by shrewd management of the houses and environment by owners, the golf course owners and the home owners association. Its a genuinely wonderful place to stay due to its quality - and builds further upon this due to its easy access to the major attractions. Potential guests would, of course, expect us to say "we love it" - but we can say so with great sincerity!! We absolutely love it - its wonderful!!
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is situated at the end of a cul de sac in one of the most prestigious developments available for short term letting (Highlands Reserve.) Being literally at the end of the cul de sac means that the plot is extra large, fanning out is a wide sweep / arc of land to ensure that the nearest houses are further away than pretty well any other villa in the area. To the rear of the property, the nearest villas are significantly lower in height - making it difficult for them to see "up the hill" further enhancing the privacy. We invite potential guests considering the property to visit the privacy section of our own detailed website - where the issue is dealt with in greater depth. Inside the property, the villa is equipped to very high standards. We basically threw away the "package" furniture - employed an interior design expert and set the villa out beautifully. The layout oozes quality and style - and the combination of a lot of space in terms of square area (for two families for example) combined with "Cathedral Ceilings" really establish a deep sense of space and volume - which we believe is extremely important for guests when, for example, two families are sharing the villa. One's own space is very important - and that can be achieved here. One of the other great "unique selling points" of the villa is the hot tub. Its simply wonderful - and ideal for weary limbs at the end of the busy park type days where legs have done rather more walking than they are used to!!! Its a luxury that no-one should pass up. It heats to a maximum of 104 degrees (optimum is about 102) and really soaks away the aches and pains and invigorates the soul!!

Good location for a gift trip.
The House was very nice. Served us well for a guys golf trip. The house area had all we needed for a long weekend.
Ready to go again next year
Perfect for what we wanted and needed while visiting Florida!!
This was a perfect place for our family get a way. Joe (the owner) was great to work with while setting all this up.
We came to Florida to go to Universal. This house was not far (maybe 20-25 minute drive to park). This was nice to be away from all the craziness but still close to parks. There are plenty of stores (CVS, dollar general ,grocery, Walmart, and gas stations) very close by.
We had plenty of room for everyone inside and out at pool area.
Great time had by all.
Everything at the property was great! The boys really enjoyed the pool most all the game room
My son graduated from high school this yr. He opted out of the traditional open house for a family trip. The Viila was truly made our home away from home. Our experience was everything we expected it to be.
Fantastic villa on an ideal setting
Had a fantastic stay at this villa,ideal location after a day at the theme parks the hot tub was very relaxing at the end of the day,
Wonderful vacation villa in prime location
Our family have just returned from a wonderful stay at this fantastic villa, -it really is every bit as great as described and no photos can really do justice to it's prime location , with an unobstructed view overlooking the golf course.
The house is very clean, beautifully maintained and spacious yet still homely. Fixtures and fittings are of high quality.
Mr and Mrs White, the owners, were very helpful, immediately answering any queries .
As a result I will recommend the villa to family and friends. The family we vacationed with are also already planning their return. But you should plan ahead, since this is a popular villa.
Locally, there's a handy supermarket and we found a really nice Chinese takeaway and a pizza place called Mia's which was a firm favourite of my kids.
I can't think of anything to complain about, except that the time went too quickly.
There's no other villa in the vicinity to compete in terms of location, and you'll fully appreciate this when you arrive.

Golf: Highlands Reserve:
Set at the top one of the highest areas of the state, Highlands Reserve is not your typical Florida golf course. This Par 72 championship design by Mike Dasher gives you tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, open spacious fairways likened to the great Scottish courses, and a bit of old Florida with citrus trees dotting the countryside.
Large, fast, undulating greens make this course challenging and fun for all levels of golfers. Conveniently located just minutes from Walt Disney World and all major attractions, Highlands Reserve Golf Club is a Central Florida favourite!
Highlands Reserve has been one of 'Golfpac's' most requested courses by golfers worldwide, and customers continually rank its customer service, course conditions, and professional staff as top notch....Course Knowledge: Highlands Reserve is one of Central Florida's brightest new stars on the golf course circuit. The course boasts over 120 feet worth of elevation changes, making it one of the few, hilly courses around. Open fairways and large greens are the signature of Highlands Reserve. Putting is the real challenge here as the double, and sometimes triple-tiered greens can create their share of three-put opportunities.
107 Troon Circle overlooks the short Par 3 12th Hole with panoramic views over the 'links style' course.
