Overview

About the property

5 bed, 4 bath villa, private resort style pool, conservation view, near Disney

This is the villa with the WOW factor! Treat yourself to 5 star luxury in a superb located on on a fabulous golfing community close to Disney!

Our oversized pool deck area has a massive (approx. 50'x20'), private south west facing, resort style tropical pool and spa overlooking a conservation area. There is plenty of space to sit around the pool on the sun loungers provided. A large covered area with a ceiling fan and a dining table is a great place for al fresco eating. There is also space under there for sun loungers for those who wish to relax outside but out of the sunshine. As the pool faces south west, the entire deck area is bathed in sunshine from about 10.30 am until sunset. However, there is always some sun to be found on the deck from early morning! The sunsets behind our villa are spectacular! For those with young children, we have a safety net across the pool and there is an audible notification saying which external door has been opened on our alarm system.

You enter our property through double front doors to a light, airy, double storey sitting area (the first of 3) with sofas and a professional pool table. You go through into a second living room with sofas and cable tv, dining area and kitchen, all with stunning views of the pool and conservation area.

A corridor off this 2nd seating area leads to the downstairs bedroom with a queen bed, large wardrobe and flat screen tv, the laundry room and bathroom. The laundry room houses a large top loader washing machine, tumble dryer, airer, iron and ironing board. The washing machine can accommodate loads from very small to very large; really useful for anyone travelling with a luggage restriction.

The games room is off the front living room and has a table tennis table, air hockey, and foosball table as well as sofas.

Upstairs there are 4 further bedrooms and the bonus loft movie room with an xbox, flat screen tv and sofa bed. Some games are provided for the xbox.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, oversized bathroom with garden tub, walk in shower and walk in wardrobe. There is a flat screen tv and sofa which can fold out to provide an additional bed. Double doors lead out onto the balcony where there are table and chairs to allow you to sit and enjoy the fabulous view over the conservation area. The double storey lanai means you can enjoy sitting out there at any time without being bothered by mosquitoes.

The second bedroom has a queen bed with a large closet and a flat screen tv. This too has double doors out onto the balcony with its own table and chairs. This bedroom shares a bathroom with the twin bedroom (bedroom 3).

The third bedroom has 2 twin beds in it along with a large wardrobe and a flat screen tv.

The fourth bedroom has bunk beds, a walk in wardrobe, flat screen tv and a Jack and Jill bathroom with the loft room. The bunk bed is a double underneath and a single on top.

All bathrooms have hairdryers provided.

Free wi-fi and free calls within the US and Canada are provided.

The full length balcony upstairs has fabulous views over the pool and conservation area and provides an additional outdoor seating area.

The villa is on the Highlands Reserve community which has a superb golf course. The community itself is clean and well maintained. It has a communal tennis court, communal pool and a great children's play area.

This home is very family friendly with plenty of space to allow all generations to enjoy their stay.

There are shops, banks and restaurants within a 10 minute walk. These include Publix supermarket, iHop, Applebee's, Chinese, Indian and pizza takeaways as well as an Irish pub.

Disney is 15-20 minutes drive and Universal is 25-30 minutes.

Kissimmee with all it's restaurants and attractions is 15 mins away as are the Premium outlets for shopping.

The I4 leading to both coasts is 5 minutes away meaning either coast is accessible in about an hour. Clearwater beach on the west coast was voted in the top 10 beaches in the US recently. They provide beach wheelchairs free of charge for anyone who finds walking on the sand difficult so everyone can go together.

Kennedy Space Centre is also about an hours drive.

Orlando International Airport is 45 mins away and Tampa International airport is about an hour away.

About Liz Raisbeck

We are Marc and Liz. We have 4 children who are currently 10, 12, 13 and 15. We love heading out to Florida and visiting the parks as well as relaxing by the pool in the sunshine. Marc is a golf course manager and loves to play whenever he gets the opportunity.

Liz Raisbeck purchased this villa in 2014

Why Liz Raisbeck chose Highlands Reserve

We loved this villa as soon as we saw it. The pool is fantastic and big enough to swim and play in. The view onto the conservation area is amazing. We love sitting out on the balcony upstairs with a glass of wine in the evenings watching the sunset and listening to the wildlife. We are not overlooked at all from the back and the villas on either side are some distance away as we are on the bend of the cul de sac which makes it a very private space. The villa is lovely and spacious inside. We have regularly stayed there with friends or family totalling 11 of us and it has been very comfortable and not felt crowded.

Incredible villa!! Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This my family’s second time staying here and we truly love it... the property is amazing with its enormous heated pool and spa. My kids love the game room and the size of this beautiful villa allows everyone to relax. The owners and property managers are extremely friendly and always there to help. I plan on going back every year!

Absolutely brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples and two singles in Florida to play golf, with a spot of sailing thrown in. The description of the villa was accurate and the accommodation suited us very well in that it is a lovely, roomy property with plenty of space both inside and out, in which to socialise and also have some peace and quiet.

The swimming pool area is particularly attractive and we ate most of our meals outside on the veranda. The kitchen is a great social space and was fun to cook in. It is well appointed and has a huge fridge. An added bonus is the wide array of games available, from air hockey to table tennis to snooker- brilliant for children and adults alike!

The villa was very clean and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable; the master bedroom being a veritable suite, such is its generous size.

It is in easy reach of all the major attractions and we would encourage a visit to St Petersberg and the Dali museum there. In addition, the on site golf course Highlands Reserve and the nearby Champions Gate were very welcoming. The Publix supermarket is close by and offered a very wide range of regular and organic food.

All in all, we had an excellent stay and would unreservedly recommend the property.

Great Outdoor Area...House needs some updating and work. Dual Zone AC is a must.

  • 3 of 5

I want to say that this review in no way reflects how we feel about Liz. Liz was the best property owner we have ever dealt with. She was fantastic!

Let me start with the good things about the property. hands down the best pool we have had on any property we rented. it was clean and had plenty of area to swim. The outside area was great. There was plenty of space to spread out inside the house. It was very close to a shopping center and the Disney parks.

The negatives of the unit are as follows. The air conditioner in this house is not large enough to fully cool off this property. They automatically adjust the AC temperature with out your permission through out the day. We will be sitting inside the house and feel very warm. We would go over to the thermostat and it would have been changed on its own to 76 degrees. We would come back form Disney world being in the hot sun all day and the house would not be cool enough to even sleep at night until the very late hours when the house finally cooled down. This by far was our biggest upset. Next, the house is in need of repairs throughout. It is very dated and needs a complete refresh for the amount of money we spent. We noticed mold in the master bathroom tiles, cracks in many places, the coffee maker didn't work. We dint complain as we didn't want to deal with having to have this be a bummer on our vacation. We also had already complained about a few things already at that point. Overall, we were on vacation and didn't let this ruin our trip. However, for the price I would have wished we chose a different house. We have stayed at a ton of properties in the Disney area. Not sure how this property had received so many stars. Maybe solely on the pool, which was great. As soon as we walked in I knew that it needed some work.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback. We are delighted that you loved our pool and the outside area and thank you for the compliment you paid me. I do try hard to respond promptly to guests enquiries and problems. We are so sorry though that you found the villa disappointing. We have never had feedback like this about the decor before. We do try to keep the house looking fresh but with this being such a popular villa there will be wear and tear. It is such a shame that you didn't drop me an email about the AC and the coffee machine as these could have been sorted within the day with no inconvenience to you at all. It does say in the villa information that you received with your lock code that the AC is a smart system which we have programmed for day and night time temperatures,when doors are left open and when the alarm is set in order to keep both our guests comfortable whilst being mindful of the environment. Guests are welcome to change the AC to a lower temperature should they wish. However, I have changed the presets to a lower temperature in response to your review to try and ensure the comfort of future guests.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this home. It fits our needs perfectly. Close to multiple golf courses, Disney, and shopping. The community is nice for walking. The pool is very nice and large, good for a swimming. The kitchen has everything you need including containers for leftovers. The owner is very quick to reply to any inquiry. Would certainly recommend this home to anyone.

The villa was spacious and lovely especially the pool which our grandchildren loved.

  • 5 of 5

In an ideal situation for all theme parks, shopping and trip to the beach. We felt very at home and with the pool and games room could relax after a busy park day. Easy reach of food shop and restuarants. Overall a well fitted out villa. Would have no hesitation to return or recommend.

Great property for families with kids. We had a few issues we had to contact property manager for but everything was resoved quickly. Pool temperature cool even with heating but ok for kids to swim. Nice layout with good play areas for kids. Thanks for sharing your home

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I’m glad that the manager responded quickly to the problems that arose. As a team, we do strive to deal with any issues as quickly as possible. I’m glad the children were still able to use the pool even though the temperature was cool. It is difficult to keep such a large pool really warm at this time of year. We do hope that you will stay again.
