The separate dining room is designed to sit between 6-8 people comfortably and is an ideal area to entertain or enjoy big family meals. It is located just off the family room.
The master bedroom is beautifully furnished in matching wood and South American wall hangings giving it a very individual feel. It boasts a luxurious solid wood 6’ King Size bed. It has views over the pool with patio doors leading out onto the pool deck. The room is fully equipped with a 32”flat screen HD TV with DVD. There is also plenty of storage with its very own walk-in closet. En-suite Bathroom
And to the front of the Villa we have the “Queen” bedroom which has its own private bathroom and is filled with sun each morning. Like all the other bedrooms, it has its own flat screen TV.
The twin bedroom is situated to the rear of the Villa and enjoys views over the pool. It has plenty of storage and its own flat screen TV. It shares with the “bunk” room a Jack‘n’Jill bathroom.
The kid’s favourite..! Our “double-single” bunk room offers excellent flexibility and can sleep up to three people. It has its own flat screen TV and is connected to the “Jack ’n’ Jill” bathroom.
The master bedroom has its own private bathroom, which boasts a huge walk-in shower, a “his and hers” sink and a beautiful “garden-tub” bath which is perfect after a long day at the parks.
The Queen bathroom to the front of the house is a good size with a full bath and shower screen.
The Twin bedroom shares a Jack'n'Jill bathroom with the Bunk bedroom and this too is a good size with a bath tub and shower screen.
All bathrooms are fully equipped with a plentiful stock of towels. Each bathroom comes equipped with a hair dryer (we always get asked this question…!!!)
We have recently purchased a pool table and table football for our guests. These are in addition to the golf clubs and the bikes which guests have been enjoying for years, plus we have a large selection of pool toys and tennis rackets and balls for the tennis court.
We think the main reason to choose our villa, is our beautiful south-west facing pool deck. We have extended our decking to provide a wide and spacious area to socialise, entertain or simply sunbathe and relax. The pool (heated if you wish) is 28’ long and provides the perfect alternative to the theme parks or the golf course. It backs onto a small lake and the tenth tee.
It is sun-drenched almost all day but offers shade under the covered part of the pool deck. Unlike many other villas, you are not overlooked by anyone backing on to you. Your privacy from neighbours is retained by low hedges we have planted along the sides of the decking.
The entire decking has been extremely tastefully decorated. We have increased the amount of patio furniture for you to use, as this is where you’ll be spending most of your time, and this is why we bought Villa Carmen..!! You can finish off the perfect day with a glass of wine watching the golf buggies glide silently by as the sun sinks behind the pine trees without feeling you are being watched yourself.
Our Villa sits in a quiet road off the main road and far enough away from the US27 to never hear it. We overlook the 10th Tee which, for anyone who knows their golf, would tell them that we are a stones throw away from the Club House. Ideal for the driving range or a beer..! We are also a stones throw from the communal swimming pool and the tennis court which you will have free access to. If you have very young children, there is a children's play area beside the tennis court, just a 1 minute walk away.
Large double garage which is now our Games Room. We also keep our bicycles in there, plus all our pool toys, pool safety net, high chair, push chairs and anything else you can think of including a retractable clothes line if you don't fancy tumble drying your designer labels..!!
Free Wi-Fi which can be accessed anywhere in the villa including the furtherest corner of the pool decking..!! All TV's are digital and have access to YouTube, Netflix and Amazon.
We have, at no extra cost to our “little” guests, a high chair and travel cot (or crib) for those who are too small to have their own bed. This comes fully equipped with everything except bedding, so you would have to bring your own (which you’d probably prefer to do anyway).
As is law in Florida, we also have a pool safety net which you may decide to erect if you have toddlers running around. We also have a couple of pushchairs and a potty / step combo for small ones.
The Villa is entirely on one floor with no steps or stairs, although the front door does have a small step up into the villa as does the patio door to the pool deck.
We would prefer to keep our villa a pet-free zone, as much as we love them ourselves, we know that not everybody shares our feelings, so regretably no cats or dogs. Sorry.
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!

- 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.
