About Aidan & Alma Fitzgerald

My wife and I reside in England. We have a daughter and four grandchildren, who loved their visits to Orlando with us so much, that along with the fantastic weather and welcoming locals, we decided to purchase our own property. We are very much looking forward to future trips with the grandchildren over the coming years to our new family home.

Aidan & Alma Fitzgerald purchased this villa in 2016

Why Aidan & Alma Fitzgerald chose Highgate Park

This property stood out to us as it gave a great family feeling of home away from home with beautiful surroundings and the added security of being on a gated community. The spacious layout inside offered us plenty of room for our large family to relax in on those days off from visiting the multitude of attractions close by.

Lovely family villa inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four adults had a fantastic time here. The photos don't really do the villa justice: the layout means everyone has there own space and the main living area in particular is a really nice central area that is lovely for relaxing. Everything is finished to a high standard. The beds are comfortable, lots of linens and towels are available, and it's good to have pool towels provided. The kitchen has everything you need and some of basics like salt, pepper, kitchen towel, and dishwashing supplies are provided. The villa was clean when we arrived and it's clear everything is well maintained. We particularly enjoyed the outside space, which gets direct sun from first thing in the morning until around mid-afternoon (hard to say exactly when the sun moves as we had the usual 'rain at 3pm' during our August stay so we weren't sunbathing outside!). The pool is one of the cleanest we've had when we've stayed self-catering in villas in this area and it was very well-maintained. There is plenty of space to sit outside either in the sun or in the shade, thanks to the design. The other thing we really liked about this villa was its location: we were 15-20 minutes away from Disney which was great for park days. The gated community where the villa is was quiet and we felt safe the whole time we were there. The property owners, Aidan and Alma, are great: they made everything really easy and responded quickly to a couple of questions we had before setting out. We really recommend this villa and when we go back to the Orlando area next time, we'll be looking to stay here again!

Best yet!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best stay I've had overall among any vacation property I've stay at in Florida, for sure at this price. The house was well stocked with necessities in the kitchen, bathrooms, game room, etc. The property was also extremely clean and linens were fresh. We were also pleased with all of the furniture (kitchen, beds, chairs) and their comfort. The one exception was the sectional in the living area. Unfortunately, this was not very comfortable - in good shape, but not comfortable. Replace that one element and this is a homerun stay. Shared with a family and was cheaper than any single family option we looked at.

We also misplaced an email communication with property details and the owner quickly responded to us with the info.

We enjoyed our stay at this villa. It was immaculately clean with everything that we needed for a good holiday. Plenty of fresh bedding and towels in every room, comfortable beds and loads of wardrobe and drawer space. The villa was very well presented with comfortable leather sofas and modern dining furniture. The décor was clean and fresh with tasteful accessories. The kitchen was well equipped with full modern oven and hob together with large microwave. Plenty of crockery, glassware, cutlery and kitchen gadgets - all matching and good quality - you don't always get these little touches in every villa. The outside area was kept very clean with pool cleaning every week. There were loungers as well as large patio table and chairs which we used more than the indoor dining area. The garage was set up as a games room with pool, air hockey and table tennis together with other things to amuse the children. It was a little further from the parks than we thought but having stayed in the area before we didn't find this a problem. There was a supermarket, off-licence and a couple of take-aways just five minutes down the road which we used regularly. We had a couple of very minor problems whilst we were there, one being that we couldn't fathom the tv system out and the other was a problem with one of the doors to the laundry area but we contacted the Agents who sorted both problems out immediately. If I have missed anything out I would suggest you book the villa and see for yourself what a tip top place it is.

The villa was as described on the website.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property in April 18 with our daughter and son in law and our three grandchildren. The villa was ideal for us and the children enjoyed using the pool when they were not at the parks. Aiden was very helpful with a couple of minor issues and responded to our email very quickly. I’d happily recommend this vacation home to others.
