Why Kelly Hart chose Highlands Reserve
We reviewed homes in the Orlando area for a year and the Highlands Reserve had the family and vacation feel.

Great structure of a property but in very poor condition for living
On arrival the house had not been cleaned, when contacting management team they were unaware that we were in the property. From our standards it taken us 48 hours to get property in the condition we expected on arrival for the price that was paid. Pool area in poor condition had not been cleaned inside the pool or out, infestation of insects etc clearly on the pool deck, netting for pool area broken and torn in several places allowing insects etc to freely come into the pool area, BBQ in a disgusting mess which we could not even use after cleaning it was that bad.. Inside the house was in a very poor cleaning condition, this had to be rectified by ourselves. One of the double bedrooms which my son slept in he got severely bitten when using the bed, this bedroom had to be sealed and not used again for duration of the holiday. Carpets clearly stained from previous use again which should not have been our issue. All cleaning that we had to do, the utensils and cleaning products had to be bought by ourselves as the ones in the household were not fit for use do to wear and tear and also the cleanliness of them. Pictures are freely available if requested. When presenting this to the owner He did not seem to be affected by this even after pictures were sent to him, which for the price that was paid was unacceptable in our opinion. Please do not be fooled by the pictures shown in this AD as this is not a reflection of the current condition of this property.
We are very disappointed that the guest has used this forum as a way to retaliate for not refunding their stay or giving Disney tickets. We, along with our management company tried to understand what the issues were from day one with this guest but it always came back to money back. We have agreed that the grill is cosmetically stained on the outside from use but it is functional on the inside. As far as insect infestation, this is not true. The guest placed 29 roach traps throughout the villa without approval and there were no insects in any of them. We do not want these or other cleaning products in our villa as we have guests with small children and it is a safety risk. We have a pest control company that treats the property weekly. The picture of his sons "severely" bite marks looked like a rash and were on his legs only. Our linens, mattresses are less than a year old. The referenced stained carpet is in the pool table room. Unfortunately it is used as a game room and guests are not always careful. We have a plan to replace with tile once we have an opening on the calendar to not interrupt our guests vacations. We hope all our future guests who read our reviews will look past this disgruntled guest and read the other 34 reviews. The pictures in the AD are exactly what our villa is with many upgrades that are not pictured including new blinds on all sliding doors, new comforters for the twin rooms and upgraded kitchen blenders, coffee maker, etc. We are always grateful to our guests for their honest feedback to improve our villa.
Stayed at the villa for 6 nights for a trip to Disney World. Much better and cheaper than staying on site or at a hotel. Villa was spacious and cleaned before we arrived. Would stay again in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay here
This house was very nice and comfortable for me an my family we spent alot time around the pool area, it’s close to all the stores you may need. We had more then enough space for two adults and four kids. We had a lil problem with the pool and we called management and the sent someone within an hour on a Sunday to solve the problem. It was very nice and we can’t wait to come back next year.
Fantastic for families!
This beautiful villa was just perfect for our family vacation. It met our expectations and was very clean and comfortable. Our grandkids loved the pool, of course, and we spent lots of time enjoying it and the billiards room. We had a great time here relaxing and playing together. Thank you!
Our family had a wonderful week in this nicely appointed home. The tiled floors were very accessible for a wheelchair, but doorways to the outside, had transitions. (not flat) The pool and hot tub were used continually every day. Lots of beach towels were furnished. We were close to the stores, restaurants and Disney. We also went to Cocoa Beach and Clearwater Beach in an hour plus drive. We cooked most of our meals in and found the kitchen had everything we needed as far as pans, dishes, glassware, utensils etc. We had a very memorable week of family time in this great place.
Our small family love our space and that is what you get in this lovely home. The pool area was brilliant. And enjoyed both the spa and Lanai.
The home was really clean, in fact the cleanest I’ve been in and I’m looking forward to staying here again when we come next year.
Our family had a few niggles, which when I phoned, the management company dealt with almost immediately. I was very grateful and very impressed with the speed of their response.
The only small negative I would say it is the blinds slats kept falling off or were not even up. But we were informed by the management company that all the blinds are being changed and upgraded shortly.
Lovely area to be in played lots of golf and really didn’t want to leave.
