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.

Spacious, clean and comfortable villa
"We would all like to say how much we really enjoyed our stay at your villa at Highlands Reserve. It was very spacious, clean, comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. The welcome pack was very much appreciated and was a very thoughtful touch. We loved the pool area with barbeque and the view over the golf course was wonderful. It was a great experience watching the hot air balloons flying close overhead most mornings. Your management company were also excellent and dealt with our issue very promptly. All in all your wonderful villa helped make our holiday very special and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends."

"I can't say enough good about your home but also appreciated the very dependable, assuring communications from you. My husband and I along with six grandkids and a very helpful son, have only wonderful memories of our time at Disney World and Villa 500. We have travelled many places around the world and this house met all of our expectations and more. While we spent time with three grandkids at the parks, our son spent a wonderful day at the house swimming and playing games with the other three. The home is very spacious so we never felt crowded. We lacked nothing! We loved the house and location overlooking the golf course in a very quiet neighbourhood. There was lots of privacy (many of the homes have pools facing each other but not this one). It was perfect! Everything was very clean and in very good order. I especially appreciated the comfortable master bedroom, great linens and towels which were like new and of excellent quality. At night my husband and I sat out by the pool and enjoyed a glass of wine after all the grandkids were in bed. And, it was a complete pleasure working with the owner who faithfully responded to all of our questions. We sure picked a good one."

"I would like to thank you for letting us stay at your villa - it was beautiful especially the views of the golf course. The kids loved the games room and the heated pool. This is definitely the best villa we have stayed in so far and will recommend to family and friends."

"We have stayed in many villas and we agree that yours is by far the nicest we have stayed in. It was clean and comfortable and everything you could possibly want. The pool toys went down a treat and so did the Wii and the games room. The food hamper that was left for us was such a lovely idea and saved us going shopping till the next day. Very nice touch. We would definitely want to stay in your villa again."

You won't want to leave
The villa was spotless and very relaxing with all the comforts you could wish for. The outside area with the great expanse of sky gives you a real sense of space along with peace and privacy. You won't want to leave!

Great view over the golf course, not overlooked
We found the villa an excellent place to stay in Orlando. Close to supermarkets and shops, and convenient for the parks (5 minutes to I4), but also very quiet. The view out the back is great over the golf course, you don’t feel overlooked, but it’s much nicer than the normal view of a road, fence, or someone else’s pool area! We will stay again.

Perfect for a family holiday
Perfect for an Orlando family holiday, very spacious inside with a very large living area and 5 comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is fantastic with quality equipment and plenty of cutlery and ware.The standard of decor is excellent and made for a very comfortable stay.
A very generous welcome pack was provided to get us started and there is an excellent Publix supermarket just outside the complex and an Applebees which is great for a reasonable meal.
It was great to have wifi as well.
The pool and lanai is above average in size and well maintained with comfortable seating.The view of the Golf course from the villa and lanai is excellent.
We didn't golf this time but the course is very accessible
There is a Games room which is great for the kids. There is also access to a tennis court and larger pool, which we used as well.
The whole experience was very pleasant and a great retreat from the hectic days at the parks.

For having stayed already in this Villa a few years ago, I must admit that we have been positively surprised to see how the villa has been improved.
The decorations are greater, the new furniture in the living areas, in the bedrooms and around the swimming pool give really a special and better touch to the Villa, well more modern and more enjoyable.
Also the new games room in the garage in fantastic, above all this great new pool table(adult size).
The house was clean when we arrived, and we enjoyed the welcome package you offer to your guest.
My wife will add a positive comment on Tripadvisor (sorry in French) under her nickname Toscane.
We go to Orlando approximately every 2 years so definitively we will go back to the Villa 500.

By far the best villa we have ever stayed in!
We would all like to thank you for an absolutely wonderful holiday in your villa. This was our ninth year of visiting Florida and would like to say that Villa 500 was by far the best we have ever stayed in and great value for money. There is nothing that needs changing or improving, you have thought of everything. The welcome pack you supplied was absolutely amazing and extremely generous.
We would like to rebook for 3 weeks next year straight away please!

The best villa we have stayed in!
I can honestly say that of the 10+ villas I have stayed over the years Villa 500 is the best. The owner is helpful, the grocery welcome pack is comprehensive and the villa itself is well appointed and ideally located, just off the 192. The only down side is that we couldn't stay longer! I would definitely recommend this villa.

The stay here at Villa 500 has been excellent. The villa is very tastefully furnished to a high standard and spacious, ideal for two families sharing. It is very relaxing everything at your finger tips with superb views of the golf course but at the same time quite private and quiet. Watch out for the hot air balloons early in the morning and the sky writing. I would definately recommend Villa 500 to my friends and family, you won't be disappointed.
