This was our first time renting a vacation home and we will definitely go this route again.  Gary was very helpful in the process and was able to answer all of our questions regarding location, home etc.  Overall process of renting villa was flawless - all went perfect.  The home & pool was exactly as presented on the website and exactly what we were looking  for during our vacation.  We had a great time during our stay and exceeded our expectation.  Thank you.

Our third visit to this lovely villa. Everything wonderful, as always -  a welcome retreat from the heat and the bustle of the parks. Gary and Geoff both so helpful when we thought we'd left something behind on return home. Thanks again, and we're planning to go back in 2015!

Gary & Dawn prove that renting a marvellous villa, having a wonderful time and enjoying the great hospitality of Highlands Reserve is a very nice thing to experience. But next to that, they are outstanding and extremely warm and friendly when unlucky things happen to your family (mid-ear infection of our little daughter) and you can't fly back home because of that. All possible support we experienced by them resulting in finding another villa just around the corner where we could stay until our flight home was known (3 days later) and our daughter could recover without  being 'forced' to stay at some hotel on the airport or so. Our thanks also to Geoff and Chris of GBW Management in Davenport and Mike Gilder (other villa) who truly helped us out of this inconvenience. All 4 of us  are looking forward and counting the days to visit Gary and Dawn's villa again in July this year! So many thanks again, we truly lived the  Highlands Reserve hospitality!!! Best and warm regards, Ilonka Lange

Hello Gary and Dawn. We were all thrilled when we walked into your beautifiul villa, it was all we expected and more. It felt like a proper home for the two weeks and is the main part of a truly lovely memory. We are so glad we had the pool heated, one of the highlights of our holiday, warm and relaxing. Dealing with you has been nothing but a pleasure, you have been so helpful and cheerful and all of your tips proved useful. We loved Florida, loved Highlands Reserve and had such a good time. I do hope we can visit again some day.

Hi Gary and Dawn, Wow, our Disney World trip is already over, and....... we want to go back. Your home was fantastic.  We all absolutely loved it.  It was close to all the parks and yet very private.  Great for our two families.  Pool, hot tub.... heck, the whole thing was awesome.  Weather was beautiful!  In fact there were no "issues" at all.   Your property manager Chris (also a lovely lady) was kind and nice on her visits. Also, we've already recommended your "villa" to many others.  Thanks again!!!  It was truly wonderful!

We all had such a perfect holiday.  Your house is amazing and the jacuzzi was ideal after a long round of golf!!  The booking process and communication between us has been excellent and you've always been very helpful and needless to say your welcome book in the villa is loaded with information. You have literally thought of everything for this villa.  We had such a great time, just sorry we didn't book for longer...

We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was lovely, very spacious and well equipped . When booking we looked at the floor plans of villas and really liked this layout, which worked well for six of us. The pool area is not overlooked at all and it is lovely to look out over the nature reserve. The games room was a great addition and the kids enjoyed the games consoles. We have stayed at Highlands Reserve twice before and it is by far our favourite area. It is in an ideal location fairly near to the parks, but away from the hustle and bustle. This time we made use of the communal pool, a good size, very clean and good for sunbathing.
The information folder was excellent and really useful.

We enjoyed our stay at Gary and Dawn's villa for the period of Feb.4th to Feb 18th 2012. The home was very clean and spacious. We really enjoyed the pool and spa. The minor problems we had was dealt with quickly by the management team assigned to look after our villa. We enjoyed our stay there so much that we plan on booking a month in 2013.

We have been renting villas in Orlando for 20 years and our experience in dealing with Gary and Dawn it is that they are exceptionally charming and helpful.  Their Management Company are  equally as pleasant and helpful. The villa  is in a good location for most of the parks. It is within easy distance of shops. Publix, is in fact, within walking distance. The hot tub was most relaxing and the games room is an  added bonus.

This is a great villa - a real home for the holiday with every facility we needed to make our stay perfect. This is the second time we have been here and we will be back!
The location is great - a very short drive to Disney and not bad for Universal etc. The local facilities are good - nice golf and shops / bar / restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend you to try it out.

We had a lovely stay in Florida this summer. Gary and Dawn villa was lovely, and we all enjoyed our stay there. It was in a peaceful area, and only 2 minutes drive from a big supermarket. It’s also easy to drive to all the big parks around in the area, and it doesn’t take more than 20 minutes drive before you are there.

Absolutely fantastic villa. Our party had four adults and three children and the villa had plenty to keep everyone entertained and happy while providing a luxurious and relaxing haven at the end of a busy day exploring the parks. The villa is tastefully and very comfortably furnished and in an ideal location close to parks, attractions, shopping and supermarkets. The pool and spa are just wonderful and the deck is an ideal place to relax by the pool with a beer and do nothing. The owners Gary and Dawn could not have been easier and more pleasant to deal with and made everything so simple. We will have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends and family and we will definitely return ourselves soon.

Beautiful villa. Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 children, and it suited each one of us. We loved the pool, BBQ area, lounge, decor, everything really. Villa location was great - 20 minutes or so to Disney, etc, and 2 minutes to decent supermarket, bar, and take-aways. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the villa for our honeymoon, and couldn't have asked for a nicer place! Everything was fresh, clean, and beautiful. We adored the pool and hung out there for several days, as opposed to opting to go to Disney World longer (and we got into Disney for free thanks to a relative who works there!).  This was our first time renting any kind of villa and Gary and Dawn were so great to deal with. After this experience, we will never stay in a hotel while visiting Florida - especially when we can rent this particular villa!

Wow Wow Wow, great Villa with everything you could want for a fantastic holiday, we could have just stayed at the villa and not visited any of the parks, it really is comfortable and very well equipped.
Gary and Dawn have been great nothing is too much trouble, almost like renting from family, and Geoff and Chris who look after the villa in Florida for them are great as well, again nothing too much trouble. We had such a great time, the villa was spotless.
Well positioned it was easy to visit the parks etc 15 mins away, great advice on where to visit and eat
Thanks again Gary & Dawn, fantastic villa made a Fabulous holiday we will remember, think we will be coming back !!

We have stayed at this lovely villa four times now and it just seems to get better and better each time! Great location, close enough to parks to be there quickly but far enough away from the bustle to be very relaxing. Facilities excellent and really well maintained. Close to supermarket, pharmacy and several great eating places. The owners are wonderful and the management company too - they really go above and beyond the call of duty!

Top notch villa. Very comfortable and kitted out really well - beats many five star accommodations I have stayed in over the years. Great value for money and with all the comforts of home. Obviously, coming from England it is better than a home from home because they also ensure sun, pool, games room, hot tub etc...the list goes on - fantastic!Dealing with Gary and Dawn is a pleasure - they are genuine, honest, trustworthy people. They are 100% focused on their guests having the best holiday experience and ensure their fantastic villa, excellent advice and top notch customer service delivers the perfect, relaxing holiday you are looking for. Absolutely recommend the villa to anybody visiting Orlando and a huge thank you to Gary and Dawn for making our stay in 2010 so memorable.

I was sceptical about renting a villa through the internet. It is hard to pay money for a rental that you have never seen. I was also sceptical about paying money to someone I had never met. I was delighted that the description of the villa was accurate and that Gary and Dawn alleviated my fears. The villa was exactly as stated in the description. There were no surprises. The villa was clean, modern, convenient, and inviting. Even my five year old son wanted to stay at the villa than go out and about. The pool was nice and plenty big enough. All my family was delighted with the Villa. We all agreed that we would never stay at a hotel again. Every minute of our vacation was spent doing something we liked. Whether going to Disney or relaxing at the Villa. One of the benefits of renting the villa is everyone had their own space. The house is plenty big enough that each person can have "down" time when needed. The villa was so awesome that we had a hard time leaving. When we did get ready to leave, we realized that the villa was so well equipped that we could have brought much less stuff with us. Anytime I had questions while I was at the villa, Gary always returned my calls. He was prompt and handled any concerns we had immediately. I will say that if you go in the cooler months, that heating the pool is a must. The pool is not heated and it cost about twenty dollars extra a day to heat the pool. We decided that we wanted the pool heated after being there a day and Gary quickly acted upon our request. Now to some areas of improvement. I think that upon booking the villa, maybe there should be another notice sent about heating the pool. Some people may not realize that in Florida, you sometimes need a heated pool. Also, there were not enough hooks in the bathroom to hang towels from or any bathmats. In the whole scheme of things, just a little inconvenient. This villa is superb and anyone who rents the villa will have a great stay.
