    We had an amazing stay at this immaculate Villa, we had extended family here and it was perfectly sized for all 10 of us. The facilities are superb and maintained to a very high standard, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment we spent there!

    Just returned from our holiday and wanted to say how lovely the villa was and we would definitely return another time. Debbie, the owner, was easy to contact and kept us informed about our rental and things to do while out there. The management company helped us with a minor problem with the tv while out there quickly and efficiently so more than happy with their service.

    What can I say about Debra and Gary's Home ? We have just returned from 2 lovely weeks . Having owned our own home we are very fussy and have been renting for the last 9 years and had not found 1 home that we would return to, well we have now ! The whole place was immaculate , the bedding and towels were all lovely and clean , the floors were all clean, very often in rental homes the floors look clean but you end up with dirty feet ! I could go on but there really is no point it was all beautiful. The master bed was so comfy, the only problem I had was that I am not very tall and it was really high ! And the new Master wet room is stunning. The home has everything a family could need and even though we were only a couple we loved it. All the communication with Debra was easy and put my mind at rest having had a problem with a previous rental . The management company were so professional and dealt with 2 minor issues immediately, to install new appliances in 24 hrs was fantastic, we did not expect to have them in before we left let alone the next day. I really can not say enough good things about this villa, I would really rather keep it a secret so it is always available when we want to return

    Having stayed in a couple of other villas I have to say this is the nicest and most comfortable I have rented. 7 of us stayed (4 adults, 3 children) and it is very spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, beds are very comfortable, kitchen is well equipped and the 2 living spaces are also excellent. The games room is also equipped to a high standard with a very nice pool table, hockey table and dart board. As mentioned in other reviews here everything you need is provided (e.g. coolers, pool inflatables, plenty of towels, buggies etc).
    Location is excellent, close to parks, shops, cinema etc. I would recommend this villa to anyone and for value for money for what you get, I doubt there are many other villas that could match it.
    Thank you Debra and Gary from myself and my family for a wonderful holiday in your lovely villa.

    We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this wonderful villa. We were a family group of 9 (5 adults, two 4 year olds, a 2 year old and a 9 month old). We had chosen this villa as the photos looked nice, however the pictures do not convey just how spacious and luxurious the house is. Each room is huge and everyone had plenty of space. The pool and spa was fabulous. There were lots of additional equipment that proved invaluable, such as the coolers for taking food and drink out with us. The equipment for the kids was also excellent and we were especially grateful for the buggies. All the parks were easy to access from Highland reserve too. Debra couldn't have been more helpful with advice from the moment I considered renting this villa. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    We stayed at the villa for 9 nights sandwiched between stays in hotels at Clearwater and Universal.

    Everything from booking through to check-out was perfect and Debra was extremely helpful throughout.

    The villa is of an extremely high quality and its situation on a golf course and proximity to local shops makes it an ideal choice.

    We certainly would book again in the future.

    I stayed at the house with a few mates for a mini golf break and were thrilled with the house.

    It was beautifully appointed and unlike so many houses was amply stocked with kitchen ware, glasses etc.

    Would happily return and the owners were very communicative and helpful!

    This is the second time we have booked this villa and once again we are really pleased with the standard and the quality of the property.

    Really didn't want to go home and even thought about changing the locks and staying there forever! Will have to settle for another return visit instead.

    Communication between the owner Debra was excellent. All my questions were answered professionally and at no point did i feel concerened or worried about my choice of Villa.

    The Villa location is ideal for Parks and Shopping and is within walking distance to Publix and a few resturants such as Applebees which is really good value for money. There are not many Villas that allow this relaxed approach to an evening out without the car.

    Everthing in the Villa was of very high standards and the cleanliness could not be questioned. If you love a big bed then run to the master bedroom on arrival before any other members of the party lay claim to it. This Villa has everything you could need on a holiday. The games room provided good entertainment at night after a long day out and if a Teleivison is your thing to relax with at the end of the day then your are in luck with the large TV in the sitting room, offering plenty of channels to watch.

    From experience you can spend hours on the Internet looking for and trying to decide if a certain Villa is right for your holiday. Thankfully these days are over for me. I would be more than happy booking this Villa again when we next return to Orlando. It was a pleasure from start to finish and our stay will be remembered for years to come.

    Firstly I found dealing with Debra a pleasure from start to finish whilst organising our visit to Hibiscus Ridge. Very prompt communication and very friendly advice on the local area etc.

    Upon arrival at the villa we had all been traveling for what seemed an eternity with two young children, its fair to say we were all ready for our bed, however once we had punched in the entrance code for the villa the wow factor took over and everyones spirits picked up immediately.

    The pictures simply do not do this villa justice, sure they look good however they do not convey the size, space and luxury that await you.

    The villa housed our party of 9 no problem and at no point did we ever feel like we were living out each others pockets and this is due to the abundance of space and also the variety of things to do within the villa.

    We enjoyed the pool and spa last thing at night after visiting the parks, the perfect way to unwind and relax.

    There has been no stone left unturned with this villa and it catered for our every need (two son's aged 2 and 10 weeks) with all baby equipment available and also an alarm on the pool door incase our son decided to enter this area on his own.

    Upon return home, Debra's services did not stop and this is where I appreciated that we had made the right choice to book up and stay with her villa.I had ordered a gift for a friend and it was delivered after I had vacated the villa. I had all but given up on this, however I sent Debra an email and this was promptly shipped to my address in the U.K.

    That's what I call 'going the extra mile'

    So, if you're thinking of booking up then I would whole-heartedly say 'do it' - you will thank yourself for it later, probably when relaxing in the hot tub!

    We've just enjoyed our best ever holiday and your fantastic house played a major part in that.

    Can only reiterate what other have said, it is a supurb house with everything you need in a great location.

    We wouldn't hesitate to return and will be recommending it to everyone when we get home.

    For our first rental we lucked out and got the best! Debra and Gary, you house is beautiful and had everything we needed and more.

    One week is not long enough but we hope to be back and this would be our first choice of villa to rent again. Beautifully decorated and great location.

    Loved the games room, pool etc, in fact, pretty much loved everything about your home!

    Having visited Florida many times, I have to say that this is the nicest villa we have stayed in, it has everything you could want and more.

    Best of all, it is spotlessly clean so credit must go to both the owners and the management company who look after it in their absence.

    I will most definitely be booking this villa again in the future if it is available.

    This was the first time that we have booked a villa privately and we were VERY nervous doing it. However, Debra made this entire journey from selection to holiday an absolute breeze. The communication was / is absolutely faultless. We communicated by email only (our choice), but they were more than happy to talk over the phone. I'm not sure what the normal renter is like, but I felt like we were emailing and asking questions almost weekly for 10 months (sorry!). What I liked was that this was no issue to them and all emails were answered the same day (some even within minutes whilst they too was on holiday!).

    The house is absolutely gorgeous. I know people always say this, but the photos don't do it justice. It is immaculately clean, with the carpets feeling like they are brand new. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want during your stay with everything being high quality and the still new feel. We ate purely in the nook just off the kitchen, but there is also a formal dining area. The lounge is just so relaxing with the comfy sofas and massive TV!

    This villa is family friendly as it has high chairs, stair gates etc. We personally made use of the stair gate just in case our daughters decided to start sleep walking in a strange house.

    The location of the villa itself is fantastic. This is the third time we have been to Florida and the third time we have stayed along the US27 and definitely both our preferred location and villa. The placement on Highlands Reserve itself is also good as you are not overlooked by anyone and in fact is nice to stand near the pool to look over the golf course. The photos of hot air balloons were also a common sight as they passed by over the villa. The villa has edging / trees on either side of the pool area which gives it a nice element of privacy from its immediate neighbours.

    If Hibiscus Ridge is on your shortlist then book it, you won't regret it. If its not on your short list, put it on there!

    Stayed here for 14 nights and had an amazing holiday, helped by this fantastic villa. There was 10 in our party with a mixed age group from 3 to 58 and all had a great time. The villa is in a lovely quiet location but only a 15 min drive from Disney. We ate at Applebys and had a take away from the Chinese and Pizza place, which are all walkable if you want to have a drink. Further afield there are plenty of restaurants on the 192 which is only a 5 to 10 min drive. Longhorn steakhouse being my personal favourite. The villa had everything we required and more! We took advantage of the golf clubs, as our flight provider wanted over Ł75 to take our clubs and played the local course which the villa overlooks. Thoroughly enjoyable and only $39 if you play twilight. I agree with a previous review in the fact that the pictures don't do the place justice. Easily the best villa I have stayed at. Debra was extremely fast with any enquiries we had and full of information for us 1st timers to Disney. I will be recommending this property to all my friends that look to come to Orlando in the future

    A family of 6 adults, we had a fabulous time in the villa. The photos don't do it justice! It's an awesome property and we were delighted with everything. The pool is just brilliant and the Jacuzzi was perfect after a Long day of theme parks. We all enjoyed the games room. Debra and Gary have thought of everything for this villa. The management company were very efficient and helpful also. The area of Highlands Reserve is safe, quiet and extremely well maintained. The shops are very convenient. All theme parks etc within 30 mins drive. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa for holiday makers.

    We have just arrived back! It was a fabulous villa! It was spotless when we arrived, the info provided by Debra and Gary was spot on. This was our fourth stay in a villa and this was our no 1 choice so far! It has everything we wanted and more and exceeded our expectations (which are high!) the management company really look after this villa well and it was presented beautifully. The little welcome pack was great and started our stay off with cleaning essentials. Very close to shops (Publix) could easily walk although like Americans we took the car! Great Chinese take out and pizza place there too which was good for first night meal! You can get lost in this villa it is so big, 5 really good sized bedrooms, we were only a party of four but two families or a large family would be very comfortable. The parks were between 15-30 mins away with a very easy drive and choice of route. The location is very quiet, lots of bird watching from the lanai! Photos do not do the place justice - take our advice and go see it for yourself! Thank you Debra and Gary, we found you a pleasure to deal with and hope we can stay again in the future!

    A fantastic villa, located in a marvellous community within easy distance to all the parks be it Disney or Seaworld/Universal. The size of Canterbury 8 is unbelievable, 5 large bedrooms, 3 of which are Queens/King size beds - the master bedroom mattress will not fail to impress 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen area and lounge areas all add to this truly fantastic villa. It was a very welcome sight on arrival after having stayed in a Hotel/Condo in NYC and Boston and having to share amenities. A fantastic pool which only I experienced, as the rest of the family were too tired from the early morning/late nights. A large sized TV in the main lounge area with a fantastic cable TV package ( sports ) - previous villas we have stayed in only provided a basic cable package, so nice to chill out with a Bud lime and watch TV for five. Lovely fixtures and fittings. Very tastefully decorated with lovely artwork adorning the walls. A nice touch with the welcome pack, very useful and saved a trip to Publix for cleaning/washing products. Lots of good communication from Debra and Gary throughout the process, no question went unanswered and no question to silly to ask. Prompt replies at all times reassured us that they truly cared for there guests. I have already recommended this villa to colleagues, family and friends and should we visit the Orlando area again we would have no hesitation in booking this villa again.

    This villa offers everything you could want in a holiday home and more. The communication from Debra and Gary was amazing and extremely reassuring as this was our first time booking a villa and we had the added pressure of arranging it for the whole family! The photo's are great but really don't do the villa justice as it is absolutely stunning and huge. One of the walk in closets is bigger than our bedroom at home! The villa is in a great location and really close to local amenities and short driving distance to lots of restaurants and of course Disney. The villa (along with Debra & Gary) made a good holiday into a great holiday and catered for all our needs before, during and after our stay. We will definitely be recommending this villa to friends and family and will be returning as soon as we can.
