Area & Villa Information

We have put together some information from our own experience, which we believe you may find of use to you during your stay in on Highgate Park. However, if you have any questions, we are more than happy to help you out.

Fastest Route from Airport by Car

The best way we have found with the least amount of traffic is down the Central Florida Greeneway (Toll 417). It's a toll road, but worth every penny, especially after a long flight.

From Orlando International (MCO) (less than $5 in tolls) head for the 417 SOUTH. From Sanford International, also head for the 417 SOUTH (less than $10 in tolls). Stay on the 417 toll road which eventually merges into the I4 West to Tampa - take exit 55 and take US27 North towards Clermont. Highgate Park is about 4.5 miles up the US27 on the left hand side after the Berry Town Center traffic lights at the next set of traffic light at Legacy Park.

Highgate Park entrance is well lit at the left hand side at the end of Legacy Park Blvd off the US27 and easy to find even in the dark.

Getting Around Without A Rental Car

There is no free shuttle service available to the parks from Highgate Park, but there is a very friendly and helpful taxi services available locally.

Florida Transport offer an amazing private transfer service - they can pick you up from the airport and take you to the villa and even stop off for you buy some essential groceries before taking you to your villa.  They also offer a taxi service to take you to theme parks, beaches, shopping, nights out etc....

If you don't want to drive on the day you arrive but want a hire car from the day after, they can also cater for this as well - please click here to view more details of Florida Transport services

Petrol

There are numerous petrol stations nearby, but the closest is by Publix supermarket at Berry Town Center and another, next to the Polo Park Subway (less than 1 mile north on US27 by traffic lights on the right). "Don't forget to lift the lever" announced loudly over the intercom !!  (We found this out to our embarrassment on our first trip here). You can also buy gas refills for the BBQ from both petrol stations.

Supermarkets

The nearest supermarket is Publix (great value with an excellent choice & service), which is located on the southbound carriageway of the US27 just north of Highlands Reserve (you can't miss it) at Berry Town Center, less than 5 minutes drive from your villa, which also has strip mall with a huge variety of shops, restaurants, takeaways and bars.

Wal-Mart, is a popular superstore (now affiliated with ASDA) located about 3 miles north on the US27 (turn right at first traffic lights after you cross over the US192). Excellent value shopping (same principle as ASDA in the UK, but so much bigger).
