Tired looking but well located villa. However, please be wary.

  • 1 of 5

Please be wary of booking this villa. The owner refused to return the security deposit after claiming we had pets in the villa, which, having travelled from the UK (2 adults and 2 children) and knowing no one in America we most certainly did not. We were offered £35 as a gesture of goodwill, which considering we were in no way responsible for the alleged 'pet dander', we found rather insulting.

During the booking process the owner rejected our payment via Home and Away, and asked us to pay directly via Paypal, which we did assuming we would have their Buyer Protection. It transpires this removes the right of recourse through Home and Away so please be cautious if booking this villa, or like us, you will end up £150 out of pocket.

Owner's Response: Our villa has been repainted both inside and out within the last 24 months. the bedroom furniture in the twin rooms has been replaced and additional tv’s added to the main bedrooms - again all within the last 18 months. the guest provided feedback stating they had a great stay prior to my refusal to refund the security deposit. the principal behind the security deposit is to provide at least a small amount of protection to the owner for guests who leave the property in an unacceptable condition beyond ‘fair wear and tear’. regarding the return of this security payment there was written and photographic evidence of the presence of pets during the stay namely significant amounts of pet hair ‘all over the house’ any guest which allows pets into the home must request permission and an additional fee is levied to cover a ‘pet level’ clean prior to the arrival of the next guest, regardless of their ultimate owner, e.g. a friend. this guest made no such request and no fee payment. the presence of pets during the stay was confirmed by 3 sources. the management company, the cleaning company and most importantly an independent source- the incoming guest. the payment refund was refused based on this evidence provided. this guest made no mention of any problems on their arrival and no problems were reported by the management company relating to the condition of the property on their arrival date following the departure cleaning for the previous guest. the guest was provided with all this evidence. i provided guidance to use both paypal and homeaway complaints procedures and i provided all the evidence to those companies also. The reviewer correctly states i did identify a preference for paypal payment (as some guests do also) but all other forms of payment are accepted and i refute any suggestion of a link between not returning a security deposit and preferences for paypal. at no point was paypal insisted upon.

Excellent Value For Money

  • 4 of 5

Accommodation is in an excellent position, the view to the rear of the property is beautiful with stunning sunsets.

The villa is clean, basic, but has everything you need for a great location base. The only thing I have a negative comment about is that the outside table is very small for 6 people, however we managed .

The management company were very friendly, polite and sorted a couple of minor issue's straight away.

Walking distance to Applebees, Publix, Take aways, bars and I Hop. Walmart a short drive away.

We have stayed on Highlands Reserve twice before but the position of this villa was by far the best, will definately book this villa again.

Ideal Villa for a family

  • 5 of 5

we stayed there for 2 weeks from Mar.28 to Apr.10, the Villa is well equipped for the purpose, perfect location, close to everything (relatively speaking as we went to both East and West FL), Food shopping is minutes away, US27 and 4 are on the door step. Quit location and most of all the Owner is a nice person to deal with, no messing about.

The managment company seems to have a good grip on providing everything, they will email you before you get there, how to get in, and once you are in there is a booklet that tells you everything you need to know, everything. all you have to do is relax by the pool and enjoy your time there. friendly neighborhood they all salute you in the morning too. will for sure stay there again in the future.

Decent Stay

  • 3 of 5

The house was actually not all that bad. I think that for the amount that you are paying it could have newer sheets. Upon checking out, you are required to remove the white sheets off the beds. Let's just say that the mattress cover was pretty dirty and who knows when the thicker bedding was last washed. It had a smell to it and some had dirt stains. As far as booking goes, the owner and company are pretty reliable.

Owner's Response: I have contacted the cleaning contractor and emphasised that ALL bedding is to be cleaned as per our agreement. I would also remind clients that either the owner or management company should be contacted as soon as an issue or quality problem is identified in order that we can investigate and correct as appropriate asap.

First Family Dream Holiday to Florida

  • 4 of 5

After extensive online investigations and friends advice we went for Highlands Reserve area as a preferred general location for it's quality quiet neighbourhood and we weren't disappointed.

Villa selection was then again thoroughly reviewed and this villa stood out for it's spacious size and specific location in particular. A lot of Florida villas seem to be overlooked by other properties but this was exactly as described - reasonably private from the side but with lovely view to the rear of fields and natural woodland - very tranquil especially early morning and evening.

The internal layout of villa is great with generous sized bedrooms set off large lounge and kitchen area plus 3 bathrooms with super size walk in shower to the master ensuite. All rooms were well presented, clean and tidy.

The villa is well positioned in Highlands Reserve as to be able to walk to local Publix and restaurants for a well earned Bud after long day in Parks - we had meals in 4 local restaurants and takeaways from 2 others and none disappointed.

Finally, all enquiries before, during and after booking process plus while we were there were answered very quickly by the owner (within 24 hours!).

Overall very impressed and we had great holiday.

Car: necessary

Our villa is a short drive from Disney World and Central Florida's other major theme parks and attractions, situated in a golf resort where peace and quiet are the norm.

Orlando really is the family entertainment capital of the world and having a spacious, well located and fully equipped place in which to spend your downtime is essential.

Dining out is part of the fun of an Orlando holiday, offering huge diversity of cuisine to suit all budgets and tastes.

Nearby shops serve your self catering needs and some of Florida's best shopping and value can be found within the Orlando area.

If golf is your thing, you can pre-book tee times at Highlands Reserve, a challenging golf course that has been described as one of the most underrated courses in Florida, featuring naturally undulating terrain on some of the highest ground in the state!
