    We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. To start with very good directions provided - this was very helpful. We liked everything about the villa and particularly the sun deck and pool which was nicely secluded. The supply of beach towels and general linen was excellent. Enjoyed all the sport on the large screen TV including our Wii tournament! Also, we found the high security in the house reassuring albeit in a very peaceful and, I'm sure, trouble free area. Access to tennis court and golf course also a bonus. All in all a great stay in a delightful home.

    BEST EVER VILLA WE HAVE STAYED IN What a great Villa the best one I have stayed in on Highlands and I highly recommend this villa. The owners were great to deal with answering emails so promptly. Will definitely return next year. There is every thing you need in this villa and having the reserve at the back of this beautiful villa is magnificent. Tom and Helen (management company) were great too and nothing was too much for them and always available to answer your questions. So if you want a Florida Holiday you must stay at this villa I have stayed in many others, but this is the best. Can't wait till next year. Thanks again for letting us use your fabulous villa.

    The house was a great experience. Would recommend to anyone. As soon as we walked into this lovely villa we were blown away - WOW !! The only thing we did not like about the villa was having to leave to go home.

    This was our first Florida trip and the villa was fantastic - book without hesitation before someone else gets your dates. The villa sleeps 2 families with ease - 2 doubles, 2 twins and has plenty of room in living area and pool for this many. We only had 6 there but the place is just simply great. Location is top, you can walk to shops, a pub and restaurants. More restaurants (100's) are only a 5 minute drive. Follow the short cut instructions for access to Disney in 10-15 minutes and Universal, Seaworld, International Drive are all within an easy drive. The equipment in the villa is outstanding - there were even hair straighteners in the bathroom, as well as a baby monitor, pool toys, pool towels, everything you could possibly need.

    We had a great stay at this villa for 4 nights. Everything was in great shape and we had absolutely no problems. The location is fantastic, only about 15 minutes to Disney and near to a grocery store and restaurants. Overall, though, house was exactly as described and I would strongly recommend it!

    Orlando Golf Trip 2010 Well equipped with everything we needed. Conveniently located to restaurants, golf courses and major area attractions. Easy to reach from Orlando International Airport. The villa owners were exceptional to deal with regarding all pre-arrival arrangements. Would definitely return to visit "Jasmine 1" and Highlands Reserve.

    We had very high expectations for Jasmine 1 based upon the pictures and prior reviews, and all our expectations were met. There were 7 of us (two parents, 4 kids and 81-year old grandma in a wheelchair) and the house was perfect for our needs. A hotel would have cost vastly more money than a house rental and provided less space, and the key aspect of a house is the living room where we can all gather at night. The house is well-appointed – multiple TVs, microwave, etc as you would expect. It is all on one floor which is useful for a grandparent. We were close to Disney, Universal, and we took the 75-minute trip to NASA, and even had a very fun afternoon orange picking about 15 miles away. The community has a tennis court and playground. The owner upon request provided us the key to the tennis court, but the few times we went there unfortunately the court was occupied, but the kids had fun on the playground. The house is also very close (1 mile) to a Publix shopping center for groceries and also Applebees and some other restaurants and coffee shops. A Walmart is also only 5 miles away. Interesting, you can see that probably just 10 year ago this entire area was orange groves but is now being developed section by section into housing developments. Fortunately it is still at the stage where Lake Louise is preserved and vast orange groves still are in place - suburbanization has not yet taken over entirely. As February in Orlando can be somewhat cold I paid the extra $250 to heat the pool. I probably would not do that again as we were so busy going to the theme parks and we would leave the house at 8am and return at 9pm exhausted. The kids spent maybe 3 hours total in the pool (admittedly a fun 3 hours, but a high per hour cost). Overall, we would definitely stay here again.

    We stayed at the villa (9 of us) for a week while visiting Disney World. The property was excellent in all regards. The rooms were big and well appointed. The pool was but 2 steps from the living room. The kitchen had everything you need and the laundry was welcomed. The kids really enjoyed the game room. The location is 15 minutes from Disney and is 5 minutes from a grocery store, gas station, wine store and restaurants. Simon was very prompt and helpful on replying to emails when we had questions. Everyone in our party raved about the quality of the villa. We will definitely return to this property when we are next in the Orlando area. We highly recommend this property.

    A large 4 bed with 2 master suites. great pool and shaded seating area. The pool gets the sun all day and the undisturbed view to the conservation is very pleasant. The villa had all mod cons and a very comprehensive cable TV package in all rooms, good games room and wireless internet. Only a 10 min stroll to the supermarket, 2 bars and a very good Applebees was a big plus. Easy and quick access to I4 and DISNEY. I have stayed in many villas in the past, but this one and the neighbourhood would be hard to beat

    Having read reviews of other villas on highlands reserve, this villa has to be among the very best. Staying here with my family I found the villa made the holiday an excellent experience. It was immaculate, with good quality furniture & decor, spacious & well appointed with excellent facilities & en-suite bathrooms affording privacy. The villa had very comfortable beds & furniture, it was entirely insect free, it has a safe clean feel, & with good security so I was able to relax properly in a peaceful setting. The good kitchen & dining area was important too & we were able to enjoy dining as a family on a regular basis. It was too cold to swim on most days but the well heated, good sized pool meant we were able to have something of a summer holiday feel despite the odd wintery day. We BBQ'd on several occasions & even dining in the evening outside, we were not bothered by insects as the pool area has a mosquito net thing surrounding the pool area. We could birdwatch & gaze at the wildlife during the day & the stargaze at night as the villa backs onto a nature reserve & is not overlooked. While very close to Disney, Seaworld, theme parks & Int. Drive, it's a lovely peaceful area, yet walking distance to Berry Town Centre where good shopping facilities met our holiday needs & a few bars & restaurants where very reasonably priced dining or take out could be had. With the golf course on the doorstep, we enjoyed a couple of rounds of golf. On a few nights we enjoyed family tournaments of pool & air hockey in the garage. Good clothes washing facilities were in a separate utility room which kept the noise to a minimum. When the waste disposal played up the management co. were prompt & efficient in repairing the problem. The management co. were excellent, polite & helpful whenever we needed them. We had enjoyable restful holiday & I really couldn't fault the service we received & if I holiday here again this would be my absolute first choice. Great Holiday & Good Value.

    Jasmine 1 Villa is exactly as advertised. You will be walking into a home, rather than a hotel for your vacation stay. You will need to stock up on some essentials like toilet paper/paper towels , but no worries as the supermarket (and any other store you can think of) are right down the street. Disney is a realistic 15 minutes away, but in December there was no traffic. We had a fantastic time at this villa, and at the end of the day, the value of this villa versus a Disney World hotel is staggering.

    This is the third time we have stayed in Highlands Reserve and we were delighted with Jasmine 1, which is located in an enviable position on this beautiful estate. The pool is not overlooked (a rarity for Florida properties or so it seems) a major attraction for us as we used the pool area extensively this year. The house is superb, with all mod cons provided, a well stocked kitchen and utility room, comfortable bedroom and other nice touches. that make this a true home from home. I can confidently recommend this property to all those who wants to enjoy all that the Orlando area has to offer but also want to take advantage of the peace and quiet this community has to offer. All theme parks within easy driving distances - it really isn't an issue at all. A wonderful holiday in luxury accommodation. We shall return soon. Mike & Penny Gillespie

    Thank you for a very enjoyable three week stay in your villa at Highlands Reserve for my family and I. As I am sure you can appreciate, there is always an apprehension of whether holiday accommodation is going to live up to expectations, yours certainly did. The first thing I noticed when we entered was the cleanliness of the villa both inside the house and the pool area. Needless to say, the hygiene is extremely important and I would not have wanted to spend a three week holiday somewhere that was shoddy or not as clean as I would like. No fear of that here, your cleaners are doing a great job. In addition, I was amazed at how well equipped your villa is, you really have thought of everything one could possibly need to make an enjoyable and comfortable stay. This Villa felt more like a home rather than holiday accommodation and that's because everything you could need was there, thus making for a relaxed and very comfortable stay. My family and I plan to visit again. Thanks

    Dear Simon, Donna, Erin, Callum & Kayleigh Thank you very much for letting us stay in your villa. We mostly enjoyed the games room and the pool. We had some really good weather apart from 2 days. Our favourite restaurant was Applebees which we could walk to and can fully recommend. We were mostly at the Disney parks so when we came back to the villa it was noce to relax or have a dip in the pool Thanks again Liam, Julie, Andy, Brenda & Malcolm xxxxx

    Dear Simon, Donna, Kayleigh, Callum & Erin Thankyou so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa. We had a fantastic holiday with the added bonus of the lovely swimming pool with stunning views which we used a lot. What made the whole experience really great for us is that it brought our family together as the boys are normally always out - this holiday was great for our daughter as she managed to spend so much time with her brothers that they really bonded so well. We also had a lovely time at the parks and went to Clearwater Beach one day which was beautiful. Thankyou again an hope to return next year Lorraine, Nick, Billy, Jason & Tia xxxxx

    We have had a wonderful holiday at your lovely villa. The villa was fantastically equipped and we all enjoyed the pool. We have stayed in Orlando many times but this was certainly the best place we have stayed in. We also found the villa information folder very helpful.

    Just a short note to say thank you for the use of your villa over the last 2 weeks. We had a wonderful time and it was made even better by your very well equipped property which made our stay even more enjoyable. We particularly found the baby equipment very useful. My 12 year old also enjoyed the games room and the swimming pool. You will be pleased to know we had fantastic weather and despite the crowds the first week we had a great time in the parks. I did take the liberty to take a couple of the cards for hiring your villa as I know I have a few friends and family who might well be interested in hiring your villa in the future. We also will be looking to return to Florida in the not too distant future so we may very well return again. Once again, many thanks. Andy, Julie, Liam & Alex Clark (+ Grand Parents)

    A great villa to stay in, if you have a big family. We were 7 persons, 4 adults and 3 kids. The villa is very well equipped, everything nice and clean, and of course the kids loved the pool and the games room. But we have recommended the villa and the area to all our friends, and will continue to do that. Hallander, Greve, Denmark
