Beautifully Furnished Home, Close to Disney and Other Attractions
- English, A little rusty French and German!
My husband and I have been together for 25 years. With two daughters, now aged 18 and 22, and a labrador, we live in England near the New Forest in Dorset. Alwyn is originally from North Wales and I grew up in Surrey - we met in Germany, working for the American Air Force! We've spent time over the years in Germany, followed by England and then moved to Dubai in 2008. I now split my time between Dubai and England.
Kim purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Kim chose Highlands Reserve
Back in 2004 when we were house hunting, we walked through the front door and could see straight away how private and peaceful it would be out by the pool - the biggest plus-point for me by far! Whilst we have neighbours to left and right we are not overlooked at the back of the property at all. We stopped house hunting then and there and put an offer in which was, thankfully, accepted.
What makes this Villa unique
Added to the privacy at the back, the front of the house is also set back from the road almost at the end of Troon Circle, so we get very little traffic and no road noise at all. Highlands Reserve is a beautiful place to own a home and we hope you find this to be so when you stay. It is ideally situated for Disney, and the East and West coast are not too far a drive for a trip out. Winterhaven down the road is also a wonderful area to visit with the lakefront restaurants, opportunity to rent boats and even do a spot of sightseeing from a seaplane

2019 Orlando Holiday.
Overall a great holiday and property is in a fabulous area. Thoroughly enjoyed the quiet mornings watching nature.
The house is great, but very tired and in need of a little attention and the cleaners need to do a better job. All the blinds kept dropping down, so didn't dare use them, plus management told us "there are spare slats in the garage if you want to fix them"....... It says TV's in all bedrooms, this is not the case, two out of the four have TV's (caused a bit of problem for one of my boys). One bedroom had a TV, but told it didn't work and there was no TV at all in bedroom 4. Also, it states there's a playstation 2, there isn't, apparently it was stolen, not sure when - not that we went to play games, but on rainy days......
The house is up for sale and didn't appreciate the management asking if they could show people around (obviously said no) and really didn't appreciate a realtor turning up with prospective buyers to have a look around, she was quite pushy and I felt a little intimidated. Probably would not have booked this house had I known it was up for sale - should have been notified. Felt anxious leaving the property in case people were going in to show (which I think someone did whilst we were out).
Fabulous pool area in a lovely community!
We loved the pool area and that fact that we were not sure overlooked by anyone else and it has a view of the golf course. The master bedroom was very big and had everything we needed, the other three rooms were smaller than rooms we have had in previous villas and there wasn't much storage in those rooms but we made it work and loved our stay at Highlands. Kim was a pleasure to deal with and answered any queries promptly. Thank you for letting us rent your home for our holiday, we had the best time and are very sorry to be home!
We couldn’t be more pleased with this property for our needs. The owner was so helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had as well as the property managers. Place was clean, had a recreation room that was fun for our family, and a clean pool. Thank you for providing a great home to our family!
Villa was spotless. Great location. Community not gated but would highly recommend.
Beautiful house. When they said everything is included, they weren't kidding.
This was a clean, spacious house. It had everything we could need. We loved it.
Glad to hear you had a great time. Hope to see you again in the future.
Relaxing and comfortable villa
We had a wonderful time at the villa. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Enjoyed sitting by the pool and reading a book. Recommend Ovations restaurant for a nice dinner.
Glad to hear you had lovely relaxing time. Hope to have you stay again. Kim
