We have stayed on Highlands Reserve a few times previously and had an idea that Prestwick Drive was probably one of the best locations and after staying at this villa we would definitely agree that this is the case. The villa itself is fantastic, very spacious with amazing views overlooking the golf course. David and Kim have thought of everything when furnishing the villa and all the furnishings are very modern and comfortable. We flew out on the 23rd November and arrived early evening by which time it was dark but the lights had been left on to welcome us into the villa which was immaculately clean and tidy. Everything in the villa is really well maintained with no signs of wear and tear on anything. We had a wonderful two weeks and next time we return to Florida we will definitely be booking this villa!

Firstly I have to say that I know David (property owner) through work however this is a genuine review of his property.

We are a family of husband & wife + 3 young children (ages 4,5 & 7). The house is huge and there were a couple of rooms that we did not even use. It is kept immaculately and very well decorated with a lot of love and consideration having obviously taken place. Each bedroom is well appointed with nice bedding and decent sized beds. The living area is very family friendly with a combined kitchen/diner/living space and cable TV is included.

All mod cons are in the property - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer. Towels are supplied.

The pool are is very nice - our kids were in it non-stop with a nice adult spa area.

A bonus was the games room with a pool table and darts board.

The property location is perfect for Disney/Seaworld. We made it door to door in under 20 mins every single day.

The house is set within a golf reserve that is immaculately maintained and provides entertaining viewing from the swimming pool area as you watch useless golf players with all the equipment making you look like Tiger Woods :-)

All in all a lovely stay and we cannot recommend this house enough.

David and Kim’s spacious villa is in a perfect location with everything you could need. It is furnished, decorated and equipped to a high standard and has a lovely atmosphere. We have never rented a villa privately before but everything was straightforward and David and Kim were very kind, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in returning to this villa or recommending to anyone planning a trip to Orlando. Thank you David and Kim!

This villa is of the highest standard - a real home from home. Very clean, tidy and with all the mod cons you could need. Lovely and spacious with a wonderful pool area with uninterrupted views over the golf course. All parks are within a short drive which is great. David and Kim (owners) are really helpful with any information that you need. Applebee's and Mannys chop house are great places to eat in. There is a Publix supermarket a two minute drive away where there is also good Chinese and Indian takeaways. We will be recommending you to all our family and friends and will definitely be back. Than you for a wonderful and memorable holiday.

Probably one of the best rental locations on Highlands Reserve overlooking the golf course. House well maintained and furnished to a high standard. Plenty of utensils in the kitchen and clean towels and bed linen.

Very convenient for Disney, ideal for popping home for a rest and swim before heading back for the evening. Local supermarket a few minutes away by car and a short ride to the 192 'strip' for all the restaurants you could need

The plus of this house is that it offers privacy for two families, the main bedroom being separated by a hall and lounge offering the opportunity to come and go without disturbing the whole house.

Good communication with owner, would return without hesitation.

As soon as you pull up on the drive you felt at home. The villa was everything David and Kim had said it was. the photo's don't do it justice.

As you enter the villa we were impressed with how clean it was, this made us feel that we had chosen well. It was spacious and well laid out. The pool was larger than we expected and the sun bathing area was large enough for my party to enjoy the sun and relax at night with a drink or two.

The interior was at a high standard and was clear that it is well maintained and had everything we needed to enjoy our two weeks stay. Everybody in my party (7 of us) all agreed that this was the best villa we had stayed in (holidaying in Florida 6 years in a row) and will be booking this villa for next year.

David gave us some good tips for eating out and he was right - Applebees was great value and the food was great, a good place to relax after a busy day of parks/sightseeing.

A lovely villa set in a perfect location. David and Kim's villa is beautiful and without hesitation we will be back.

All the facitilties you will need, with plenty of room and felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. Great communication with all documentation and instructions.

Thank you for letting us use your villa, I wish I was still there.

We have just returned to our home after spending the winter in the most spectacular house in Highland Reserve. This is our 5th winter in Highland Reserve and this house has exceeded our expectations. The house was spotless upon arriving and not having to clean for 3 days as I had to do in previous years made me very happy. The Management Company who takes care of David and Kim's home are without a doubt the "best" in Highland Reserve. They have kept this home in pristine condition. The owners David and Kim are lovely people and it is like dealing with family. There is not a thing you could want for in this home. The home is stocked with everything that you would ever need to keep you comfortable. It is hard to live away from your own home for three months but the entire time I felt like I was at home. The outside lounging area is the highlight of the house. It is huge and the view is gorgeous. There is plenty of seating and you can either have sun or shade any time of the day. You do get some laughs watching the golfers go by. In fact I was one of them. It's a great course and my husband and I played a combined 100 rounds of golf in three months. If you want to have a vacation of a lifetime without any stress I would recommend this home. We have already rented it for the winter of 2013. I would never think of going to another home in Highland Reserve. Kudo's to David and Kim and the Management Company for this beautiful home

We stayed in this Villa over Christmas and the high standard of the property and furnishings certainly exceeded our expectations.

We have stayed in several Villas in this area before but this one was by far of the highest standard. Well equipped and furnished and set in a lovely location backing onto the Golf Course.

The Villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and is situated on a lovely quiet community close to Publix and Walmart as well as the Theme Parks.

David and Kim kept in regular contact with us and the local Property Management Company were on hand for any problems.

Would not hesitate in recommending and look forward to returning again in the very near future.

What a fantastic villa - even better than we hoped for, and perfect for our first Orlando trip with our baby

The place was spotless when we arrived, and we felt at home straight away. The villa is very spacious, and nicely set out and detailed - this is genuinely the best villa we've stayed at in the Orlando area after 7 annual visits, and we wouldn't hesitate to return, and would certainly recommend.

This was our first booking through Owners Direct and it was all very smooth and friendly dealing with the owners.

Can't wait to go back!

Just spent a fabulous two weeks in David & Kim's villa at Highlands Reserve

The villa itself had everything we could ask for. Well everything but a teapot! (but David promises to rectify even that).

The location is perfect, situated in a private estate, but within 20 to 30 mins of all the attractions. It's easy to get to from the airport and has plenty of amenities nearby.

David was very attentive to our needs before we left and was in regular contact with instructions for getting to the villa and what to expect when we got there.

We'll definitely come back to this villa if we return to Orlando anytime soon

7 of us spent two weeks in this fabulous Villa. It contained everything we could of wanted, was extremely comfortable, clean and well maintained. The pool is a great relief from the hot Florida sun and the patio provides a lovely area to enjoy meals or just relax with a drink. The views of the golf course are spectacular and Highlands Reserve is a quiet and safe community. Close to all the parks, resturants and shopping malls, this is a perfect base to explore the area. We will definately be back, thank you!

Staying in such a high standard of villa really helped make our holiday. It sits in a very well maintained 'estate' and has a fabulous outlook over the golf course - very private and quiet, not overlooked. The interior of the villa has been fitted out to a very high standard with luxurious furnishings and the facilities were great. The kids particulary liked the games room. The villa is near a large Walmart and a smaller supermarket, Publix - all practically on your doorstep for all your shopping. We ate at a nearby Applebys restaurant a number of times which is a 5 min drive from the villa or a walk if you were really keen! This meant not always having to drive to eat out in the evening. The food and service were very good, would recommend it. You will be around 30-45mins drive to most of the parks and shopping malls - this was traffic dependant. The owners were very helpful before and after our stay and we received all the relevant information in good time for our holiday. All in all a fabulous villa and would definately book again.

Everything about my experience with the villa was outstanding. From the booking, interactions with the owners and the house itself. Our family which consisted of my husband and I, three children and my inlaws came along for a week vacation. The home is furnished very well, everything we needed was provided. The pool area was our favorite...the kids would have rather stayed at the pool, then at Disney. It was so enjoyable in the evening watching the golfers and being able to eat outside and enjoy a swim. My husband also was able to enjoy the golf course. The home is close to a Publix and only a short drive to 192 with many restaurants and gift shops. The photos you see online are exactly what you find when you get there. I can't say enough wonderful things about my whole experience. Already planning our next trip!! Thanks David and Kim!

I stayed with my family (party of 5) in this absolutly marvellous fantasmic villa from May 20th until June 8th 2011. It had all the luxery you can think off and all the space you only can dream about. All rooms are decorated with the most attention and taste. The poolside is decorated with luxery loungers were you can enjoy the sun and pool. You have sun all day long. From dawn till sunset. The view from the poolside is stunning! You have a wonderful view on the golfcourse and it's entertaining to see all the golfers go by. It's also a quiet area and the poolside is not overlooked by neighbours. Everything you need for a great vaction with you family or/and friends. This villa comes with our highest recommendation Kim and David you did a great job and thanks for sharing your villa with us. "I'll be back"

We returned to Orlando for our annual visit, kids and grand parents in tow, we normally stay in Formosa Gardens but could not get booked this year. After searching over 100 properties online I selected this home and was not disappointed. It is extremely well designed compared to numerous Florida homes we have rented over the last 15 years. The layout and facilities were superb and met expectations given the advertised recently refurbished state of the property. Our Six year old daughter quickly comendered the upper floor for her sole use, enjoying quiet play time with her toys whilst watching the Disney channel as the rest of us headed for the pool overlooking the golf course. If you're short on entertainment an hour or two relaxing by the pool watching the golf course will keep you amused, as the worst golfers hack up highland reserve hitting houses and pool area. This is a superb home if your considering staying to enjoy the wonders Orlando has to offer from Disneys many parks, magic kingdom, Hollywood studios, epcot, animal kingdom to Universal studios, Harry Potter and islands of adventure alongside Seaworld. It's also conveniently located near a Publix store for emergency shopping and Walmart is less than 10 minutes away for a bigger selection of goods, with Starbucks and Chillis restaurant right beside the superstore. If your looking for the perfect base for your family this is in my 15 years visiting Orlando the best value for money rental home I have ever stayed in. Yes you can get better but will pay double per week for the privilege, which when you spend some much time either theme parking or shopping at all the discount malls and Florida/millennia malls and eating out makes little sense. You can also pay less and you get what you pay for, no cable tv, a freezing cold pool and not so happy family members. Have a great holiday or vacation right here in Highland Reserve! DG

We had a most enjoyable stay in your beautifully furnished home. Everything was provided for us, there was nothing that we lacked. We most enjoyed the pool area, overlooking the golf course, it was so peaceful in the evenings; we will certainly miss that as we've come back to the cold weather. We look forward to returning in the years to come. Thank you for sharing your home.

Guest 10 Apr 2011      Date of Stay Nov 2010

I stayed with my family in this gorgeous villa, everything was spotlessley clean and very well maintained. I will remember for a long time the warm evenings on the pool deck, seeing the kids enjoy the pool and the magnificent views over the golf course. David and Kim were very helpful and we had a trouble free vacation. We loved the miniature golf on the US Hwy 192 and the nearby Charley's Steak House. Disney is really close and we spent a lot of time in the parks. This villa comes with our highest recommendation.
