Highlands Reserve Florida villas located in Davenport, just off HWY27. This luxury villa rental, golf course community is a great place from which explore all the world famous Orlando attractions. As you enter the community, and pass the welcoming waterfall, you drive down the main tree lined Highlands Reserve Blvd and pass the clubhouse on your right. Various golf holes can also be seen from either side of the road. The community also has a children’s play area. NO SERVICE FEE
The Highlands Reserve Orlando community is split into seven subdivisions. Most have golf related names you will recognise including, Troon, Belfry and Gleneagles. If the names inspire you to enjoy a round of golf, then tee times can be booked at the clubhouse. The course is ideal for golfers of all levels. With wide open fairways, undulating greens and only one water hazard on the tenth hole.
For a different golfing experience why not try the Country Club at Champions Gate or Ridgewood Lakes both of which are nearby. Other local courses include Southern Dunes, Reunion Resort (3 courses) and Champions Gate (2 courses). So many options so little time!
After a hard round of golf why not check out the locals favourite bar, the Paddy Wagon! Located at Berry Town Center, the nearby shopping plaza, the Paddy Wagon has quiz nights, ladies night and lots of drink specials. As well as multiple tv screens showing all your favourite sports and English Premier football.
If you are in Orlando to visit the theme parks then Highlands Reserve is a great location with Disney World's main gate only 15 minutes away. Whilst, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and SeaWorld are around 25 minutes away by car.
Fancy a day at the beach, no problem, Highlands Reserve is located about an hour from either coast. Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic is great for surfing. Whilst, Clearwater Beach on the Gulf Coast is ideal for swimming or relaxing in the calm warm waters, which live up to it’s name!
Highlands Reserve Florida Villas in Davenport
All our Highlands Reserve Davenport villas are located around 35 minutes from Orlando International Airport (MCO). Sanford (SFB) and Tampa (TPA) airports are just over an hour away. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic fly direct to Orlando and Tampa along with a number of other airlines. Most tour operators like Thomson fly into Sanford airport.
A great advantage of staying on Highlands Reserve is the size of the lots the villas are built on. Having oversized lots means the homes are not right on top of each other, which you often see on other Orlando villa communities.
Guests come back year after year to Highlands Reserve making it one of the most popular villa communities in Orlando. With its great location, excellent golf course and larger than normal homes, it’s easy to see why!
Highlands Reserve Orlando Villas: Driving Distances to the Theme Parks
We have added the actual driving distances to the main Orlando theme parks. These are not the distances to the main gate which most people quote, but to the car park for each attraction.
Most journeys to the parks are via highways or the main I-4 Interstate. Driving at speeds of 55-65 MPH makes it quick to get there, and all attractions are well sign posted.
- Animal Kingdom - 11 miles
- Hollywood Studios - 13 miles
- Magic Kingdom - 15 miles
- Epcot - 15 miles
- SeaWorld - 21 miles
- Universal Studios - 24 miles
Here is a link to a map of Highlands Reserve showing where all the vacation rentals are located. For larger parties, you can book side by side villas on Highlands Reserve. Furthermore, this will give you a great idea of the community layout.
We have put together a list of questions that we are often asked, please see the above page.
Pool Safety Fences
Most of our Florida villas will either have door alarms on any exterior door that leads to the pool area or a pool safety fence surrounding the pool. Some even both, we have put together a blog post and video showing you how to use the fence. If there are no children in your party then you can take it out and rolling it up in the corner if you prefer but please put it back when you leave the villa, ready for the next guests.

First time back in 3 years
Couldn't have chosen a better villa with lovely owners and great location we were kept up to date on local information and the owners experiences of travelling after lockdown, Jackie and family go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be. The villa was lovely and welcoming, we could hardly get the kids out of the pool, there was everything needed for a great holiday
Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone searching and hopefully we can return in the future

Thank you so much for your review. It's been a long wait to be able to travel again and I am delighted to hear you had such a great holiday. We are continuing to make our home as welcoming as possible so it feels a home from home for all our guests. The pool is always a hit with children, young and old! Thank you for being brilliant guests and you are very welcome back for any future visits to the Orlando area.
Excellent vacation rental
Just returned after spending 15 nights in this wonderful villa.
Owners were easily accessible, in constant contact with the latest news regarding travel and covid rules. No question was ever too much trouble.
Villa was in the perfect location for us, close to restaurants, supermarkets and the drive to Disney.
Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for your review. It's great to be able to vacation in Florida again even with the travel requirements. I'm pleased we were able to guide you through the rules. Thank you for choosing our home and being great guests.
Fantastic home from home
This is a fantastic 4 bedroom villa on a quiet corner spot on a lovely and well regarded golfing estate. The kitchen was very well equipped and the whole villa was clean, warm and welcoming. The pool is very private and there were lots of pool towels provided. Jackie has been extremely helpful throughout and the management company who look after the villa are also very prompt and helpful. We would love to come back and stay again in the very near future.

Christmas 2021 Trip
We cannot say enough positive things about the villa and Jackie, the owner. The villa was exactly as described and found everything to be in excellent condition. Really felt like staying in someone’s home rather than a tired and abused rental.
We have stayed in several rental villas in the Orlando area and this one really stands out.
Jackie provided a lot of information ahead of our trip, especially on how things are with travelling in the current Covid world we live in.
We highly recommend this villa and will certainly be booking again when we are next in Orlando.

Thank you for your great comments and delighted you had a comfortable stay over the New Year in the villa and the Orlando area.
Home from home , Five stars
This villa is a real gem and certainly home from home .
From the moment you walk in , you can see the high standard of furniture , decor and cleanliness.
Everything you require is there , utensils , pool towels , pool floats , some cleaning materials left by previous guests .
Pool is wonderful and the best heated pool we have had for our Dec stay due to the design of the water inlets heating the pool . Very private and sunny .
Loved my daily swim , even on a drizzly morning .
Jackie is a wonderful host and came back very quickly with any questions I had .
The community and golf course are great . Good amenities with a publix just up the road and Championsgate the other way .
Villa is situated Disney side and about an 1 1/5 HR max commute to Clearwater and Busch Gardens .
I4 is becoming busier and you will have to allow extra time for your commute to and from SeaWorld and Universal .
I get off at junction 67 and go the back way down international drive south for both parks . I also use this route for the premium outlets through little lake Bryan , saves alot if time .
I thoroughly recommend this villa and will be staying here again .

Reviewer name: Dickens family , UK
Thank you for such a lovely and informative review. Some useful tips on travel routes and times. As you say the I4 is always busy, an early start always recommend! Thank you for being such conscientious and thoughtful guests.
A lovely villa with great amenities
We visited as a family 1st-15th November 2019 and could not have been happier. Jackie was a pleasure to deal with, professional and knowledgeable. The villa was fully equipped and everything perfect for the family holiday.
As a villa owner, albeit with my villa in long term rental and therefore unavailable, we were so pleased to stay in somewhere of this quality. I thoroughly recommend the property to anyone seeking a high quality base for exploring the central Orlando area.

To receive such a glowing review from a fellow villa owner means so much, thank you. I'm pleased you all had a wonderful holiday and hope we can accommodate you again with any future trips if you are unable to use your own villa.
We had a great stay at this Highlands Reserve villa, ideal location just off the US27 highway with easy access to all the main sights and beaches as well as local shopping and food outlets on the doorstep, and a large Walmart only 5 minutes drive away. Nicely maintained, quiet, safe area. Villa itself was excellent, everything we needed was there. Lots of space, great private pool, very comfortable bed and quality furnishings, lovely place!

Thank you for your review. Apart from ‘Dorian’ nearly changing your plans I’m so pleased everything worked out and you had a great holiday. We’re always trying to make the villa a home from home feel and appreciate your comments.
This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful villa. We really enjoyed the private pool as well as the clean and spacious accommodation. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay and perfectly situated for attractions and shops. Great speedy communication from Jackie all through the booking process and for any queries we had. Would highly recommend.

Thank you Bernard and Maria for your kind review. It’s always a pleasure to welcome back guests and I’m so pleased you all had a fantastic holiday.
Villa was lovely and had everything we needed for our 3 week stay. It was very clean and comfortable and plenty of room for the 6 of us. The pool was very private and most welcome for cooling off after long days at Disney and beds were very comfortable for a good night's sleep. The owner was her helpful and responded to any queries we had quickly and gave us all the information we needed to find the house on arrival. Late checkout was great. Villa is close to all amenities and a short drive from Disney parks. We were sad to leave.

Thank you so much for your review. We’ve updated many items and furniture in our villa recently to ensure we offer a home from home feel, so pleased you had everything you needed. Highlands Reserve is a great community and of course location is all important for the parks! Hope we can help whenever you plan your next visit.
Nice Villa, Good Location
Spent 10 days in October staying in this lovely villa. On a corner plot with hedges/fences surrounding, this meant it was pleasantly quiet with pool privacy. The villa itself was nice, clean and comfortable with all the facilities we would need. Jackie provided plenty of information ahead of arrival, ensuring we had no trouble finding and entering the villa. There some amenities nearby such as publix, arbees and ihop with walmart/target and others not too far away.
Very happy with our stay. Many Thanks

Thank you for your review. Good to hear you had a comfortable stay in our villa and enjoyed the pool area. It’s handy to have the supermarket and a few restaurants close by. IHOP is our favourite for breakfast on our first morning!
Brilliant villa - just perfect for our family of 6
We have stayed in several villas in the Davenport area, and this one was great from the start. It was a real plus to have all the essential coffee/ washing up liquid etc already there, as some previous villas have been bare.
The villa had everything and was very well maintained and spotless. It was easy to find just off the C27 and not far from shops/ fuel/ food/ bank and the I4, so perfectly located. The pool was just the right size for us 6 and the outside area private.
Great friendly communication with the owner. It was a good price and welcoming and homely and we would definitely stay again. Thanks

Thank you for your review, we really appreciate your comments. So pleased you all had a great holiday. We try to put ourselves in our guests shoes and understand that those little extras help you settle in quickly and make the most of your holiday. We certainly look forward to welcoming you again should you plan any future time in the area.
We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in June/July. The location is very quiet, the villa is spotlessly clean, and was well stocked with all we needed to make a most comfortable stay. It was also secluded at the pool, which was surrounded by hedges. The owner Jackie was extremely helpful filling us in with all the details we needed for the journey and many other helpful details.
There was a Publix nearby , actually within walking distance.
We would definitely recommend this villa.
