About Julia/Leighton Thomas


Guest satisfaction is our main priority as we believe a recommendation based on personal experience is an excellent way of advertising our property. Many of our guests have stayed at our villa previously. Staying in a private villa is a wonderful, good value for money way of enjoying a Florida holiday as you have a 'home-from-home' experience with plenty of space, a high standard of presentation and amenities. A private, heated pool is an added bonus! You can be confident that we will do our best to look after you from the point of booking until it's time to say goodbye to Highlands Reserve, until perhaps another time. Please take a peek at guest comments to get a better idea of the location and what's on offer.

Julia + Leighton Thomas.

Spacious, great location, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three weeks at the end of July/beginning of August 2017 and had a fabulous time. The villa is very clean, spacious and well equipped. Easy access to Disney parks (20 mins), Kennedy Space Center (East coast 100 mins) and Clearwater Beach (West coast 90 mins). The pool is great and very welcoming after a day in 90+ degrees! Publix supermarket is a couple of minutes away, along with Mia Pizza, Applebees, IHOP and more.

Thanks to Julia who was very helpful and informative through the booking procedure as well as leading up to the holiday and afterwards.

Thoroughly recommended - we hope to come back soon!

Wonderful property and in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property many times as it is a truly lovely villa. It's always spotlessly clean and well maintained. The whole place just feels like home from home and a well loved villa. It's ideally situated with everything you need close to hand, parks, shops, restaurants and golf courses. I have stayed in other villas in this area, but keep returning to this one. Every time I book it, the owners provide excellent customer care and always provide useful hints and tips and give me updates on relevant information about the area etc. My family and I always feel safe, secure and totally relaxed whilst in the villa. We love chilling by the pool after doing the parks and shops. Also, if we fancy a meal and a few drinks, but not driving, Applebee's is only a short stroke away. Publix supermarket has everything you need, is so convenient and close by. There are many other restaurants on the 192, so try Manny's chop House for an American experience and the Sweet Tomato for excellent value for money. I've already booked for next year🇺🇸, can't wait. I cannot recommend this property enough. Love it, love it, love it. Jane from🇬🇧

Owner's Response: We're always delighted to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at the villa and Highlands Reserve. Florida's excellent climate, Disney, golf, shopping and restaurants are just some of the reasons that guests visit again and again. Relaxing in a warm private swimming pool is always a highlight!

Excellent Florida Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just spent a month over Xmas and New Year at this lovely villa. It really felt like a home from home and I can assure anyone reading this review that it was a struggle to leave.

This is the second home we have rented in Highlands Reserve and it is located with easy access to all the attractions that Orlando has to offer. Also it is perfectly positioned for walking to nearby Berry Town Centre with its supermarket and restaurants and bars.

The villa itself is supplied with all the necessary comforts required for a great holiday. TV and internet etc. The kitchen also has everything you will need, although we ate out virtually every day whilst there.

The pool and the surrounding deck were outstanding and the pool heating was fantastic. I did make use of the pool cover during my stay which helped maintain the water temperature.

All towels were supplied for pool use which did save some luggage space.

The quality of fixtures and fittings inside the villa were of a high standard and easy to live with.

I would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking to stay in Highlands Reserve.

The owners were absolutely excellent from the start of the booking process to completion.

Julia was a pleasure to deal with. All questions and enquiries were answered without any delay. She was extremely helpful and a delight to rent from.

Amongst the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many Floridian villas in the last twenty years and have to say that this is amongst the best we have stayed in. It's location makes travel to and from attractions straightforward but also having an Applebee's, Publix and IHOP within a 10 minute walk makes a welcome change and affords the option of evening drinks with no designated driver. The pool is also larger than most and also has an undercover area away from the glare of the sun, although neighbouring properties are close the hedges and fencing provides a good deal of privacy. We had hurricane Irma for company for a couple of days but the property seemed to be the only one with no damage in the immediate vicinity, the downed tree branches at the front were cleared in a very timely manor by the maintenance company. We are coming back to Florida in March and would have rebooked this Villa without hesitation but unfortunately the dates were already taken. The owner (Julia) was a pleasure to communicate with and responded in a very timely manor and we look forward to a return visit.
