Our supremely comfortable, fresh, stylish and vibrant 4-bed villa, located on the prestigious Highlands Reserve Golf Course, provides the ideal base from which to enjoy your Disney area vacation. After a long day at the theme parks and attractions, or perhaps having shopped until ready to drop, this is your retreat, your chance to relax in the air-conditioned interior, or perhaps soak up the fabulous Florida sunshine with a cooling-off dip in the crystal clear pool.
This is the perfect villa in the perfect location. A unique fusion of style, comfort and incredible value for money, that allows you to enjoy true luxury at an incredibly low price.
Whilst pools are great fun, they are equally dangerous to young children. Because accidents can unfortunately happen, even to the most careful of us, we have installed the latest in security alarm systems to the pool doors leading out to the pool. These provide complete peace of mind in that young children cannot gain unauthorized access from the house to the pool area.
Access to the villa for arriving guests is quick and simple. The front door is fitted with an electronic keypad. There is thus no need to call in to an office en route to get your access details. We will provide these details prior to your departure so that, when you arrive in Orlando, you can go straight to the house and begin your holiday immediately.
Our local management company maintains the house in a condition envied by most other companies. It is always pristinely clean and immaculately-maintained and it is always beautifully presented. Our management company is located just a few minutes away and available to assist you immediately should you ever require anything, or in the unlikely event that something breaks down, etc. They are available 24 hours a day to ensure guests are well cared-for.
An extremely spacious and luxuriantly comfortable open-plan lounge with panoramic sliding doors opening out on to the pool area.
The family room is part of an expansive open-plan area, combined with the kitchen and the dining area. The family room./lounge portion is carpeted for comfort, whilst the dining area and kitchen are tiled for practicality. Novel and original artwork and accessories abound, providing color, focal points and discussion platforms – look out for the fantastic Titanic on the dining table!!!
Whether you want to sit back and enjoy the brand-new Samsung 50” plasma TV and its more than 250 channels of TV and music, watch a DVD from the complimentary selection provided, or maybe immerse yourself in a book from the extensive assortment provided, the sumptuous red Italian leather sofa, love-seat and armchair will cosset you. We also provide a portable Bluetooth music system.
The open-plan kitchen looks out into the main family room over a breakfast bar with stools, which are ideal for that casual breakfast, mid-morning coffee, or chat with the “head chef” whilst supper is being prepared.
Extremely well-equipped, there is a cooker, microwave oven, dishwasher, large fridge-freezer and small appliances which include a coffee-maker, kettle, toaster and blender. Lots of thought has been given to all the little things, so there is an extensive inventory of crockery, glasses, cutlery, pots and pans and every other utensil and accessory you could ever want. The master portable telephone is also located in the kitchen.
Unlike lots of vacation homes, we realize that some guests do wish to cook and cater for the family at home for much of their stay. In our kitchen we have provided everything we can think of to make this genuinely possible.
Many people take most of their meals al fresco, beside the pool. If this does not take your fancy there is a large dining table, located immediately adjacent to the kitchen for the ultimate in convenience, which looks out onto the pool area and provides the perfect place for all the family to sit down together.
This is supplemented by the breakfast bar to the kitchen where there are two stools.
The master bedroom features a US queen-size bed with a deep, sumptuous mattress to ensure the perfect night’s sleep. All the furniture is high-quality solid wood and in addition to the nightstands and a huge dresser with mirror, there is a large walk-in closet, collectively providing more than adequate storage space for all your clothes and belongings. There is a TV, an iPod compatible clock/radio/alarm, a ceiling fan and also a telephone for added convenience. This bedroom features a luxurious en suite bathroom.

The family bathroom features a bath with upgraded shower over, vanity unit and sink beneath a large mirror and a WC. Luxury towels and a hairdryer are provided.
Games rooms do not come much more stunning than this one. Themed Star Wars, it even has a black ceiling with hundreds of LED lights embedded in it to give the impression of stars. This games room is however not just about style. There is an 8ft slate-bed pool table, air hockey table and an electronic dartboard, to say nothing of a brand new X-Box One with a wide selection of games (added since the photo was taken).
Our screened pool area provides plenty of space for soaking up the sun, sitting and relaxing, or dining al fresco.
Deeply-padded and supremely comfortable loungers are provided for relaxation and a dining table with equally deeply-padded chairs provides your al fresco dining facility.
The over-sized pool is serviced without fail every week and maintained to the highest possible standards. The water is always crystal clear and perfectly balanced chemically, so you can be 100% confident that it is always pristinely ready for you to enjoy. Of course, during the cooler months the pool can be heated at additional cost to a most delightful 89F.
We provide pool/beach towels in the villa for your convenience, so there is no need to take up valuable baggage allowance by having to bring them with you.
Our meticulously-maintained garden is always pleasing to the eye and is serviced every week by our management company, hence it is always in excellent order.
If you have a penchant for fresh grapefruit for breakfast, in season help yourself from the mature grapefruit tree right by the pool cage.

Villas on Highlands Reserve in Davenport, Florida
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.

Sanity and Professionalism at Last!!!
We had the misfortune to book a holiday villa (so called executive villa) via A. N. Other villa company (No names but as a clue is has a sea connection in its name ).
This so called Executive villa was OK in itself BUT it was not exec, not by a country mile.
The place had not been cleaned properly, the pool was in a terrible condition - pretty manly to be frank and the villa management team and structure was three shades short of totally useless.
No authority to make a decision, yet they were all managers!!!
To be frank could manage to find there way out of a paper bag!!
The location of the first villa was decidedly moderate, and not the best at all; again OK but not deserving of the name EXECUTIVE Villa.
After major pressure, and several days of lost vacations and upset, we left that so called exec villa and move to the villa based at 1801 North Hampton lane Devonport, managed by Citrus Grove Villas.
The place is what I would call and worthy of the title 'Executive' villa, very high quality furnishings, very high indeed.
So much so we had to put several items of of the reach of our rugrats (grandchildren) - the pool was in pristine condition, exactly what one would expect from an Executive let.
bit of a 'games' room is the garage, which made for a bit of alternative fun.
Rooms all of a decent size, very high quality furniture and fittings, and very well maintained indeed.
Sufficient pool side tables, chairs, sunbeams etc, child safety features for the pool very important. (The other let did not have them in anywhere near the quantity required for the let!!!)
About 12 - 22 miles to all major attractions - but well situated for freeways etc, so no real ball-ache in getting where you wanted to be.
Good local shopping centre, which catered for most items required for a villa rental.
The staff at this operation (Citrus Grove) where like chalk and cheese when compared to the muppets who ran the other operation.
Nothing was too much of a problem, even a very late check out, without charge - as most UK flights are overnight and generally around 2000Hrs in the evening, the late check out is a godsend.
You can actually get virtually another 'days holiday' - this late checkout is VERY IMPORTANT - this shows the level of attention to detail which exemplifies the good management of Citrus Grove Villas.
The other let we had to be out by 10 in the morning that means for almost ten hours we had to hang around orlando with a car full of kids and suitcases (seven in total) - hardly customer friendly!!!
This late check out facility is very important part of the holiday let, please make sure of two things - one you can have a late check out and most important its included within the let itself.
Most people come to Orlando/Disneyland in the main, for a 'once in a lifetime' holiday, and are unfamiliar with what is acceptable and more importantly what is not acceptable on such holidays.
My experience with the first Villa Management company, is they exploit this situation and don't really care about you once you are here - they are dependent upon on you being an unknowing SAP.
Indeed so much so that (as the americans say - its a crap shoot) in regards to what villa you will get.
From what I understand, you can actually see the villa you are going to rent - in quite a lot of details - this is a major PLUS - TAKE NOTE
The first company in my opinion and bitter experience are of this nature and i would not trust them as far as I could pee - indeed their comments made by some of their renters on trip advisor were the most vitriolic I have ever seen on trip advisor.
Obviously I found this out after the event!!
In complete contrast, Citrus Grove Villas, are to be commended, the villa we have had for the last week is what you and anyone should expect in regards to an Executive let
My only regret is not knowing about this company when I decided to book - I know know better.
Last tip ask for Emma - she is a breath of fresh air when compared to the first collection on numbness I had to endure.
This particular let is as close to perfect as you will likely get for a holiday holiday let.
I am a very well traveled individual and know what is acceptable and what is not acceptable - Citrus Grove Villas met my exacting requirements as if it was a normal part of business.
This particular let is good quality and worthy, good location, nice neighbourhood and the million dollar question....
Would I rent again very much a YES
The owners should take pride and solace that this is a very worthy villa - well done.
Date of stay: June 2016
