About The Owner

Hi, my name is Gail and along with my partner Paul we have been fortunate enough to have purchased this beautiful home in an exclusive location of the prestigious golf resort of Highlands Reserve. We are both fanatical golfers and sunshine seekers, this was a perfect opportunity to make our dreams come true and we hope for you too! We are both English but moved to the Island of Menorca in the Mediterranean some 30 years ago where we have a car rental business. Our villa in Florida has many happy memories for us. We also have a second home in Clearwater, both properties are to a high standard and we are confident you will find everything you need to make your vacation a truly memorable one!

The Owner purchased this in 2005

Why The Owner chose Clearwater

Having already purchased a property on a golf course and near the Disney and Orlando attractions, we were constantly drawn to the beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast. We were fortunate enough to find this property and we fell in love with both the house and surrounding area that has so much to offer. The property is very private and secluded with enormous oak trees, numerous fruit trees and tall palms.

What makes this unique

Nothing is far away, in fact you will hardly want to leave the villa, if your looking for peace and tranquility this is it and the tussle and bustle is only minutes away!

Huge and amazing home! Stays a little too warm in the house!

  • 4 of 5

This home was aahhhmazingly big! The pool area was almost like it was an extension of the main living room. The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of seating, plenty of bathrooms, lots of space to hang out. Tvs in all the rooms and bedrooms. The master and master bath take up one side of the entire house! Very spacious! My only complaints: the temperature in the house never got below 75 and it was in the uppper 90s outside so it was uncomfortably warm throughout the house but mainly in the second living room (which stayed above 80 during the entire time we were there) and one of the upstairs bedrooms was also way too warm. Second complaint was that the hot tub didn’t get warm. Otherwise no issues! The house was well maintained, large and spacious, fully equipped with anything you could need! Note: the house is about 30 mins from Clearwater beach. Or any beach.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were in 'awe' when we entered this grand home! It was beautiful and our stay at this home was wonderful. It had everything and was much bigger than we anticipated. The pool was amazing and had plenty of seating for all 8 of us. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Gail and Paul for letting us stay in their lovely house. Very spacious and clean and with a great pool and hot tub we all enjoyed.

Stayed as a party of 9 and yet still had plenty of space to enjoy and relax.

Lovely location with all amenities a very short drive away.

Clearwater beach is a great area with some excellent bars and restaurants.

Would recommend Carmel Kitchen and Wine bar on the Northwood plaza (5mins drive along McMullen booth road )

Will hopefully return soon.


The Ellis Family.

Gail's Villa...very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Our week of vacation at the villa was very enjoyable...everything you could possible need in Gail's home was available. Relaxing by the beautiful pool was great, and the temperature of the water was perfect for June weather...very refreshing. Had a few issues with the hot water in the home, but we notified Michele, so hopeful future vacationers won't have that same problem...unless you like cold showers in the morning😃 Would definitely return, was in a great location for beaches and resturants.
