Photos and Description of this Highlands Reserve holiday villa

4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Wonderful air-conditioned 2-storey villa with its own south-west facing pool and spa located completely undisturbed, overlooking orange trees and the eighth tee in the prestigious and very popular Highlands Reserve Golf Club.

The 1825 SqFt/165 sqm. villa provides everything you need to have a carefree holiday in an area packed with world class entertainment. Within approx. 20 minute drive you can reach attractions like Disney World, Universal Studios and Seaworld.

The ground floor of the house provides a family room with vaulted ceiling, dining room, kitchen with dining area, master bedroom with en suite bathroom, and an extra half bathroom with wc and hand basin. Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. All 4 bedrooms have a walk-in closet and TV.

When you are not out enjoying Orlando's wonderful attractions or one of the fabulous golf courses, you can enjoy life in the sun by the large pool, which is surrounded by a mosquito net. The south west facing pool area enjoys the sun from approx. 10AM to sunset. You can also enjoy life under the covered lanai or indoors where there is a 55 inch flat screen TV in the living room. In all four bedrooms are also flat screen TVs. There is also complimentary high speed internet access (Wifi) and the big TV package, dvd and WII, and telephone with free calls within USA and Canada.

To make it easy for you to pack your travel bags, the house is equipped with all the necessary bedding, towels (for pool and for inside), hairdryers and more. If you need to wash, there is both a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

In the garage are three golf sets (2 male and 1 female) to be used at your leisure.

There is also a folding baby bed and a child's chair available.

If you want to BBQ, our management company can get you in contact with a rental company, who can provide you with a clean and gas filled BBQ for approx 55$ a week.

There are endless opportunities to dine out, but if you feel like preparing your own food there is nothing to stop you, because the kitchen is equipped with large American fridge, microwave, stove and dishwasher and ample service and kitchen utensils for 8 persons.

Our management company offers to buy a welcome pack containing: Coffee (instant), tee, milk, bread, butter, eggs, ham, marmelade/jam, soda, water and orange juice. The price is approx. 40$, paid directly to the management company.

In the house you will find a welcome book with many practical details about the house, telephone numbers, restaurants etc. If you need any help or guidance, our management company can be contacted via the phone number provided in the welcome book. If you want extra cleaning during your stay it can be ordered from the management company, the price is between 60 and 90 U.S. dollars, depending on how much is required.

Poolheat is $25 a day

Why Peter Riis Laursen chose Davenport

We bought this home to have a place to spend time each year to get away from the cold winter in Denmark. During these periods we enjoy the Florida way of life, and make sure the villa is updated. It is important to us that the villa is the perfect base for your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best villa we have stayed in so far. Tastefully decorated and plenty of room. We have a family of four, but easy big enough for 2 families with young kids.

Pool gets the sun all day and is not overlooked by the golf course. Most of the other villas that back onto the course are, so for us this was a bonus.

It's only 20 mins to disney by car and there's plenty of shopping nearby. There's a big Walmart up US27 (2 miles) or a Publix (which we preferred) 2 mins drive away.

The golf course is great and the staff very friendly. Green fees are very reasonable - approx $45 (?30) for 18 holes, includes your cart/buggy. There are special overs on for twilight golf, etc.

Lilian & Peter are great to deal with and everything is very straight forward. Would book here again when returning to Florida.

Splendid villa!

Dear Lilian and Peter

The whole family has now returned to Denmark after a wonderful and exciting stay in Orlando.

We have used your lovely and spacious house as a base for a lot of exciting experiences, among others a visit to Kennedy Space Center and Disney World. We have also given priority to enjoy the house and not least the lovely pool area has brought us many wonderful hours, where we splashed around and enjoyed the weather.

The area was beautiful and the girls in the family took advantage of the countless shopping opportunities.We are planning to come back next year

Many greetings

Asta, Ulrik, Lars and Iben

Excellent family house on golf course

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our third stay in this excellent house. Although it is situated on a golf course we have never been disturbed in the pool area by stray balls or golfers looking for balls. The house is well furnished and maintained on a very high standard, so it is almost like coming home. There are good shopping and dining facilities close by and major outlet centres within half an hours drive. The area is quiet and with very little traffic and still close to Disneyland, Sea World and the other main Orlando tourist attractions. No doubt we will return.

Perfect base for a vacation in the Orlando area

  • 5 of 5

All 3 generations enjoyed the stay. It was easy to get there, the facilities served our needs perfectly and we were within ½ an hour from all the essentials in the area - eg. Disney, Universal, Seaworld and outlets. And HighlandRreserve is a safe and really beautiful residential area. The house is one of the best locations in HR.

The shopping centre 5 minutes away met all our needs

Sue from the local mangement offered a terrific service and we can give our best recommendations

Excellent vacation home , Davenport Orlando area

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay at the house ,( total of 6 weeks) , and we will be renting it again for another 6 weeks during feb. march 2016. The house is situated on a golf course ,so if you play golf you are within walking distance from first tee. The house is close to supermarkets , restaurants etc. The house is well maintained, and management is responding fast if problems should arise.I can highly recommend renting the property. H.C.Bonde

Lovely Villa in Highlands Reserve.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa. Gleneagles Drive backs onto the golf course which runs through the Highlands Reserve estate. It is quiet and we felt very safe. The villa has everything you will need for your holiday. It is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and very we'll equipped. The pool and spa were excellent. A large Publix supermarket and a number of take away food options, Mia Pizza was superb, are less than a mile away. The drive to Disney is quick and easy. Andy, the manager for the villa, lives in the next road and answered our request for a tennis court key within minutes. We had a fantastic holiday and we would happily return to Lilian and Peter's marvellous home at any time.

Highlands Reserve is one of the most desirable developments in this region and is situated approximately ten miles west of Walt Disney World Resorts. The main International Airport in Orlando is about a 45 minute drive and there is easy access to I-4 connecting to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. The area is beautifully laid out with planting and footpaths for walkers, joggers and strollers. There is a community area with tennis court, pool and childrens playground. Besides the acclaimed Golf Course, this is one of the very few developments within walking distance of a shopping mall with a Publix Supermarket, bars, British pub, and Pizza, Chinese, Italian, Indian and Japanese food takeaway outlets. Pay a visit to Applebees Restaurant and Bar, always busy , great value, and open' till late. Also on location there's a gas station, bank, UPS, hairdressers, nail spa, pool supplies, etc..

There is a large Super Walmart just a mile's drive away, open 24/7, and a large CVS Pharmacy across the road. In fact this location has everything needed for the perfect vacation.

Conveniently located just minutes from the Walt Disney World area, Highlands Reserve is a Central Florida favourite!'

Shopping Outlets like Premium Outlets, are a short drive from Highlands Reserve

Other Activities: Bird watching

Golf: Golf Orlando describes the Mike Dasher designed Highlands Reserve course as having: 'Tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, open spacious fairways likened to the great Scottish courses, and a bit of old Florida with citrus trees dotting the countryside. Large, fast, undulating greens make this course challenging and fun for all levels of golfers with water coming into play (barely) on just one hole, #10. It's a very sporty course and although it's a tad shorter in length, it can still be a 'wee tough' if your game's not on!
