Our privately-owned high-specification luxury villa is located on a premium corner plot and is furnished to a superior standard. With 4 bedrooms and three bathrooms, the spacious villa accommodates 8 guests with privacy and provides the ideal location and facilities for a fantastic family or group holiday.

The villa has been furnished to a superior standard – when selecting our furniture package we opted for quality rather than economy.
All equipment has been provided for a fully self-catered family holiday, to ensure your stay is enjoyable and to remove much of the worry in planning your vacation.

The highlight of the villa is undoubtedly our SOUTH-FACING private pool/spa on an extended pool deck.
What better way to end the hectic days at the theme parks than relaxing around the pool, or taking a dip in the spa and enjoying the sometimes spectacular sunsets over the conservation area!
The pool deck area is surrounded by an insect screen and includes a removable safety fence to prevent toddlers straying into the pool area.
We have also taken measures to improve guest’s privacy around the pool area – the corner location and rear buffer zone provide improved privacy over other similar properties, and this has been enhanced by the planted hedgerow around the pool deck area. [PLEASE NOTE - the hedge has rapidly matured since the photos were taken!]
The SOUTH-FACING aspect is of particular importance to our winter guests, as north-facing pools sometimes suffer from being almost permanently in shade during the winter months!

To keep everyone entertained during the occasional rainy days, we have provided a PlayStation games console, converted the double garage to a games room and provided high-speed wireless internet access (guests to provide their own PC/laptop)

Included in the costs of your holiday are the services of our professional management company to promptly and efficiently deal with any problems you might encounter with the villa or its contents. We have employed a small family-owned company to manage and maintain our villa since we purchased it, and we have received very favourable comments from guests that have had reason to request their assistance.

The community and location
The Community:

Highgate Park is a prestigious gated community in a prime location adjacent to conservation area. All construction work on the development has now been completed and the landscaping is well matured. It provides a safe, tranquil and pleasant environment for the villa guests and it is strictly maintained to a very high standard by the Home Owners Association.

The community is completely enclosed and self-contained, and is only accessible by automated pedestrian and vehicle gates, which require security codes to gain access.

Private tennis courts and a children’s playground are available in the community only a few minutes walk from our villa – these are free to use by all our villa guests.

The Location:

The community is in a tranquil location near the US27/US192 junction, so it is convenient for all local points of interest

The location provides easy access to all Orlando theme parks:
- Disney (10 - 15 mins),
- Sea World (20 mins),
- Universal Studios (30 mins),
- Busch Gardens (60 mins).

The closest public golf course is 3 minutes away, and Champions Gate complex is about 15 minutes. There is an extensive range of shops and dining establishments on US27/US192, and International drive is also only a short drive away, also with a vast array of entertainment and dining.

The villa is easily accessible via all local airports:
- Orlando (30 mins),
- Sanford (45 mins),
- Tampa (60 mins).

Stayed Sunday 01 February 2015 with Friends
We did not have a pleasant experience at this villa. The house is located right as you enter that gated compound. This means that every vehicle that enters or leaves the community drives by the house. When you're outside at the lanai, you hear every vehicle as they have to slow down and speed up to enter or exit at the gates. It is also not private as the only area without shrubs is where the main exterior seating section which happens to be beside the main street and sidewalk of the compound. We also found 2 dead roaches in the games room on our first day, which means that the villa was not cleaned or serviced thoroughly prior to our arrival. We also found a live roach in the middle of the night in the master bathroom. We paid a premium for pool heat and we were without heat for 2 days. I contacted the owner and he refused to reimburse me for those 2 days, saying that my complaint was not quantifiable. Most of the cookware was severely scratched. Scratched Teflon has been linked to causing cancer. The VCR/DVD combo did not work at all. The pool had a tissue under the solar blanket and was dirty with leaves, despite this being a screened in outdoor area. The dishwasher had missing wheels on the bottom drawer which meant that one had to lift the heavy drawer for it to open and close properly. I wish I could post pictures on this review board, for I took pictures of the above mentioned issues, however it does not appear to let me post them. I have stayed in this same gated community about 6 houses down a few years ago, and had a MUCH more pleasant experience than this time. It was the exact same type of house, except the floor plan was reversed. We had no issues there whatsoever, and the owner was even so kind as to leave a GPS in the closet for guests to use while down there, and also did not charge to use his barbecue. All this for around the same price. We also requested an early check-in but the cleaners were there so we had to go elsewhere and could not get access to villa until shortly before 16:00 despite having driven over 2000 km to get to our destination.

Stayed Wednesday 06 April 2011
This villa in a gated community was in excellent clean condition. The management company were quick and efficient to sort out a couple of minor problems. The pool was a good size and heated and maintained metiulously by people we never saw. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms all had televisions and worked. All bathrooms were excellent, the showers and toilets were very efficient. Would I use it again-Definitely. The only slight issue is the lounge area has two 3 seater sofas, might be a bit small if all eight beds taken, but there are tellys in everyroom, plenty of seating around the place, dont letb this put you off this one.

Excellent accommodation in a secure gated property. We have stayed in legacy park in previous years & this property lived up to expectations . The house is like home from home we will definitely return . The owners are very friendly & informative as is the management staff in Florida. The only disappointment we had was when we had to hand the keys back & come home.

Review from private guest (stayed at villa 27-05-11 to 10-06-11) This was our 2nd time staying at your villa, and once again the accomodation was wonderful! You provided us with a home away from home. It is situated in such a lovely community that a morning lazing by the pool is never interrupted by noises from other villas. The home itself is very luxurious, spacious throughout and all the fittings were of high quality. The management company were very friendly, and the one time we contacted them they arrived within 5 minutes. It is a perfect distance away from all the main attractions and also supermarkets and restaurants. A hotel just wont cut it anymore! Looking forward to our 3rd stay! Adie and Jennie C, Poole
Just wanted to say a huge thank you! We had an absolutely amazing time and so much of that was down to the lovely accomodation. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and so comfortable. We had such a great time. Thank you for all your help making it feel so easy to organise. It saved us a lot of stress. Adie loved it so much that he has already decided that he wants to return for the easter hols 2011!!Jennie and Adie C, Aug 2009

The booking process etc was fine and the information you supplied was very useful.The agents were fine – we used then once to fix a problem with the key code. They were in the area and turned up immediately.I would have no problem in recommending your villa to family and friends.S Driscoll***********************************************************We really enjoyed our stay at your home in Florida and would have no problem recommending it to friends or considering staying there again ourselves.We will certainly retain details of your offer for future consideration.C Keaney************************************************************We had a really great time, the villa was stunning and we will definatly be going back to florida again. we would like to book your villa again sometime next year if thats at all possible.
