4 Bedroom in spectacular private setting
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Me and my family just returned from our first family vacation and I must say I was VERY happy with our stay at the home. From beginning to end the process was smooth. During the booking process I had questions and needed clarification on some things and Jacinthe (owner) was very helpful during this process. Upon arriving my expectations of the home was what I had only saw online but once we walked into the home the pictures did no justice. The home was very clean, smelled great, plenty of space and was fully equipped with everything we needed. It is in a very quiet community and it is very close to grocery stores, shopping and places to eat. Everything was easily accessible. There was some small issues with the garage door and turning the bubbles on in the spa but each time I called the contact number Rita answered and if she missed my call she called right back. She was very prompt in having Oscar come out and assist with my concerns. This was a home away from home. I want to thank Jacinthe, Rita and Oscar for such an amazing vacation home and experience for my family. I can not say I have one complaint. We will definitely stay at this home again and recommend it to others. Thank you all again!!
I don't really write reviews but I just had to write one for this! Very nice place to stay after visiting all those crowded parks. Perfect location and the pool really nice, my kids loved it. Also we had some issues at first booking the place and the owner was very nice calling and assuring us it was booked for the week. Perfect! Thanks so much!
Great second visit!
The villa was just as we remembered it - immaculate both inside and around the pool area. A big thanks to Rita who called in to check that everything was OK during our stay. The pool area was nice and quiet and we had a few sightings of the deer in the morning as we had breakfast. Already planning our third visit.
Nice villa in a nice location
Recently returned from our second stay at Boca del Vista, our previous stay being in 2014. The property is as described and the only changes noted from the site images are upgrades with a new suite in the living room and table and chairs in the dining area. As indicated by other reviewers the surrounding area is well presented, peaceful and close enough to all attractions, although a hire car is a must, in my opinion, to make the most of the region. It's a good location for travelling further within Florida with the east and west coasts approx 1 hour away, Miami is 230 miles and the very picturesque Naples approx 230 miles. I would certainly recommend the latter for a day trip or longer, the beach and immediate surrounding area are a must see, particularly at sunset.
We found that family Sunbathing on the pool deck isn't really possible until early afternoon but the sun stays on the pool through to around sunset when it sets behind the trees of the conservation area to the rear. Seasonal pm thunderstorms can restrict this further though, spectacular as they may be. There is almost complete privacy at this location with only very occasional maintenance staff likely to show up.
Any issues we had were notified to the owners and dealt with promptly by the local management company, we have the impression the owners genuinely care about their guests having a pleasant time, reflected in the updated furniture and hopefully continued maintenance programme to maintain the required standards.
Berry Town Center is on the edge of Highlands Reserve where you'll find an excellent Publix including gas station, local small independent restaurants and an Applebees and IHOP. A couple of miles further along the US27 is the beginning of the 192 where larger stores and restaurants to suit all tastes can be found. If you're not doing the parks, the newly opened Disney Springs is a decent entertainment spot with free parking and admission that provides an element of the park experience.
Golf at Highlands Reserve with the associated House Links membership costs $25, decent Taylormade rental clubs are available at a further $40 although a discount card for 50% off was provided for my next round. In July the course is reasonably quiet, although I do know that from October is gets busy particularly into January when bookings are a must. Some course maintenance is undertaken so expect the greens to have been sanded etc. There are numerous courses within a 20mile radius.
Fantastic Holiday Home
This holiday villa was a delight to stay in during our 3 week holiday, 20 minutes drive from the Disney parks, very close to Publix, takeaways and restaurants.
Highland Reserve is a quiet, well-kept resort.
The villa itself has a great pool and outdoor seating area, the BBQ and table/chairs are under cover so you can sit out even during a thunderstorm. The pool is a good size, sun is on the pool from breakfast time, and on the patio area from mid-morning.
The kitchen comes with all facilities and is a very good size, the general arrangement of the dining and lounge areas are handy for a family with younger or older children.
3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms are all good sizes, the master bedroom in particular is very comfortable.
The villa has been recently decorated and so is modern, fresh and clean.
We would definitely recommend this villa to family and friends, and hope to return to Florida and Highland Reserve soon!
Great Vacation Home
This home is located in a beautiful community and it was very clean and welcoming. The Golf Package was definitely an added value. It's close to all attractions, shopping and dining. The Property Manager was very helpful.
We highly recommend this home and we would definitely like to come back and stay here again.
