-A Wonderful Home@
Date of Stay May 29, 2015
Wow! 4 adults stayed for 6 days in Barbara and Bills home in Highlands Reserve. We were truly impressed with the outstanding cleanliness of the home! The decor was updated, yet cozy. Quiet neighborhood. Pool privacy, facing a conservation area. Granite counter tops, big bedrooms. We simply could not ask for anything more. We will return again to Barbara and Williams home. Same time, next May! A special thank you to Andy, Property Manager. He responded to my calls immediately and is responsible for the crew that keeps this home so clean and lovely. A+ Two thumbs WAY up!!

Having visited Orlando many times this home is by far the best we have rented . Its location is great with no homes overlooking the pool area and within walking distance of the supermarket , which is a rarity . No need to use the car when you run out of milk or beer !! The house is clean and the furnishings are superb . Andy from the management company was on call whenever we required . We are golfers , and the location is very central for travelling , and once the upgrades are completed on Highway 27 , this will make getting around even quicker. Bill and Barbara have made this villa 'home from home' and it was a delight to be able to rent it . We will be back , for sure.

-Beautiful Ville close to Disney Parks.
Date of Stay December 27, 2014
My family and I stayed here from 12/27/14-1/3/15 and thoroughly enjoyed the villa. My children (aged 12 & 9) LOVED the pool (it was HEATED!) and although we spent our days at the Disney Parks (depending on traffic it took us 15-30 minutes to get there), they would have been quite content just spending their days in the pool. They also enjoyed the game room. My daughter became quite good at the electronic dart game. We loved the idea of 2 seperate living areas, even though we did not utilize the "formal" living and dining areas. It was only my family of 4, so we ate at the table in the eat-in kitchen. The Master bedroom (the one seperate from the other bedrooms) was wonderful! My husband said that the mattress was the most comfortable one he'd slept on in a long time (including ours...lol), and I agree. My son and daughter had their own rooms, and the 4th bedroom went un-used, but it's appointed very nicely. The kitchen was nicely appointed as well. The entire home was VERY clean, and I would not hesitate to reccommend staying here to anyone! In fact, I am looking at a repeat trip sometime next year and this is the first place I plan on looking up! In about a 2 minute drive, there is a shopping center; there is a grocery store, pizza restaurant and a chinese take-out restaurant. The won-ton soup from the Chinese place is delicious, and even though there was a stocked kitchen, we ended up getting Chinese food and Pizza most nights. There is also a WalMart about 15-20 minutes away, as well as a Target, however you would go in different directions for each. The villa owners (Barb and Bill Scott) responded very quickly to any and all queries we had, no matter how silly I thought my questions were.

Beautiful home, beautiful location.
Date of Stay December 13, 2013
We just didn't want to leave! Having looked at many options for our five week stay in Florida, we weren't disappointed by our final choice. Truly a beautiful home, clean and well appointed with everything we needed, plus more. Having two lounges was a really nice touch and the location on Highlands Reserve, with a conservation view and not being overlooked made it special for us. We came for Christmas and New Year, and Barbara and Bill even provided the Christmas Tree. Excellent communications with helpful advice and recommendations from the owners - what more can you ask for. We would definitely return again. The Bernhard-Grout family, South Wales, UK

We're just back from a two week stay in Tiggers Villa and we couldn't have chosen a better villa for our first holiday in Florida. Highlands Reserve is a lovely area and the villa was equipped with everything that we could have wanted. We all especially loved relaxing in the pool area after busy days in the parks.
The Villa felt very safe and secure and the location for us was ideal. Either north to the 192 or south to the I4 - it couldn't have been easier to get around and it was very handy having Berry Town Center close by.
We're already saving for a return visit!

Listing was accurate. Enjoyed Universal Parks. Convenient grocery store and movie theater. Date of Stay June 27, 2013 Lovely home with adequate accommodations. Game room was nice We all enjoyed the pool during the evening, although the alarm for the back door became a little annoying. You may want to consider having some way to disconnect the pool alarm it for your guests who have older children. Overall we had an enjoyable stay.

My Response Thanks for your comments we have the alarm for safety and peace of mind for us and guests pool safety has to be paramount

Date of Stay May 12, 2013 Bill and Barbara have a lovely house which we had the pleasure of staying in for 2 weeks in May. Before booking Barbara
answered our many questions quickly and was also able to give lots of local information to us. After booking Barbara was easily contactable and we had excellent communication and information provided regarding the villa. We are a family of 5 and had more than enough room! The villa is exactly as it looks on the website and has lots of extra equipment not mentioned on the website which came in very useful during our stay. Lots of extra towels, a lot of cooking equipment, pool toys, DVD's, books, childrens games... The games room was also a particular hit with our children The villa is situated in a lovely area, very well maintained and very quiet and an easy walk to the local shopping centre (restaurant, supermarket, bar, banks, pizza restaurant...) We would definitely recommend staying at Bill and Barbara's villa... we had a lovely time and couldn't have asked for nicer and more helpful hosts.Recommended for: Age 55+, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children
My Response Thank you so much for lovely your comments we hope you will come
back again soon

This villa was very homey and comfortable. It feels like your own home. Highland Researve is in a good location to shopping and
attractions.•By Mr & Mrs Paul Gouveia from North Carolina on 3/29/2011 for a stay in 1/2011 -03/11 and 1/12-3/12 + 1/10-3/10
Luxury spacious villa in a great location Tracey Williams•By Tracey Williams from Cheshire on 6/28/2012 for a stay in 6/2012
I found this excellent villa on the website and prior to going I found the owners Bill and Barbara were very friendly and were very quick in responding to my emails. We had stayed in Highlands Reserve last year so we knew the location. The villa is located on the edge of the community and it was very quiet the whole time we were there. We did not even see our neighbours. The villa is very spacious and there was plenty of room for my family and my parents. As the villa is privately owned this makes such a difference. So much easier on check in and out days. The villa is immaculate and we all loved the decorations around the villa which truly make this an outstanding home. My children loved the Mickey and Winnie bedrooms and the assorted stuffed toys that were in them. Such a nice touch. The pool and the outside area is fantastic and just what you need after a
busy day. The room was always set at the correct temperature and there were additional fans in the rooms if you needed them. The males in our family particulary liked the games room. I can honestly say there is nothing I would improve about our visit. It was just a perfect stay and we would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful villa to friends and family. Thank you Bill and Barbara for letting us share your home for a week.
Bill & Barbara's villa is perfect for everything. Parks, shopping and local amenities. Just off the I4 so no problems getting anywhere.
The home is equipped with everything you could possibly want and very comfortable (wish it was mine!). It felt like home as soon as we arrived and was a great place to be when not out and about. Would definitely return on my next visit back to Orlando. By McDonald Family from Scotland on 7/23/2012 for a stay in 6/2012
A vacation to remember...
The service we received from Bill and Barbara was excellent, we couldn't have asked for more. The villa was spacious and very comfortable with everything that you needed. Location was excellent, 10 mins walk from supermarket (Publix), shops, bars, restaurants and a short drive from the theme parks. For those avid golf fans, a course right on your door-step and many more to choose from in the surrounding area. We really did feel at home in the villa and will definitely look to stay again when we're next over in Orlando.•By The Morris's (Kenny, Val, Bex & Tori) from Balloch, Glasgow on 7/30/2012 for a stay in 7/2012 at
Home from Home
From the moment we booked the villa we knew we had made the right choice. Barbara/Bill could not do enough for us and made sure we were prepared for our visit. When we entered the villa we all felt the same that it was neat, tidy and very well maintained. Kids loved pool and games room and of course we loved the cable TV. All mod cons in villa ensured that we never wanted for anything. ocation of villa is ideal in our opinion, 15-20 mins from Disney and next door to Publix supermarket with Walmart 5 mins down the road. Highlands reserve is also well maintained and there is a
relaxed atmosphere as well as a very good looking golf course. The biggest complement I can give to this villa is that we have already rebooked for
2013.•By Chris from Aylesbury on 8/13/2012 for a stay in 7/2012 at
Great villa in a great community.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2012 and had a wonderful stay. The villa is in a great position in a lovely community and had everything we needed. It was very big for the 3 of us, but we loved the space. My 4 year old loved the Mickey Mouse bedroom and the pushchair at the villa was a godsend for him! It was great to have our own pool and everything in the house was in great condition. I don't know what we would have done without the washer and dryer either! Being so close to Publix was great too as we could pop in on our way home and I took a walk over there early
one morning too. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this villa and would certainly stay there again in future.•By Jo from Harlow on 10/3/2012 for a stay in 9/2012 at
Fantastic home from home!
A lovely place, well maintained and well positioned for the Parks. This was our first time at Highlands Reserve and found the location to be ideally located. Barbara and Bill were superb throughout the Booking process. We had a small issue with the pool but we were notified of this before we left and kept informed until it was resolved. First Class service,Villa itself was clean, spacious and well looked after.•By OneSteve from Falkirk on 10/24/2012 for a stay in 10/2012 at
Best villa we've stayed at n Florida
We had the good fortune to meet Barbara and Bill over the Internet when we where looking for a villa to stay in for Christmas. Bill and Barbara are fantastic hosts and there was nothing that we asked that was too much trouble. They took the time to explain everything and made our trip very special. The villa itself was absolutely stunning. Well kept, well placed and comfortable. We also felt safe and secure with the availability of the the security systems that have been put in place.
The community itself is very well kept and handy for the local supermarket and restaurants. Disney is literally only minutes away so ideal for the
parks. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. We have been renting villas in Florida for over 17 years and Tiggers is by far the best we have
stayed in. This is aided of course by the courtesy and grace of our hosts Barbara and Bill. Do yourself a favour. If your thinking of staying in
Florida check the availability of Tiggers first. You may have to beat me to it though! •By AlanWhicker from London, wishing I was there on 13/1/2013 for a stay 12/2012
First and Best Florida Vacation
We can not say enough about our stay at the Scott's Family Villa. It was fantastic. The home had every thing you would ever need. Several sets of dishes, well stocked kitchen ware. Linens were great. Their home was so clean. The pool area great with floats and pool toys for the children. Disney drive great...15 minutes...food and restaurants minutes away...walked for ice cream..we had the time of our lives...children and grandchildren flew in for two weeks..we rented for a month. We also had golf time when the family was not there. Highland Reserve Golf Club was terrific. Gave us great golf rates and very nice to rentals. Family loved it..made many happy memories. Thank you. •By Cheryl and Sam Long from Newtown Square, Pennsylvania on 5/14/2011 for a stay in 4/2011
Our Visit at the Villa
The house was perfect, nice and clean and had lots of room to move around. There were 8 of us there so it was perfect. The pool was great and the service from the management company was great as well. Barbara also kept in touch and was only an e-mail away. I would definitely visit this Villa again.

Fantastic Villa, great owners and superb location Booked again July2014
We arrived at the villa armed with only the booking and website pictures and we were not disappointed. We wouldn't have asked for anything more.
The villa was spacious for our party of 7 and it was equipped with everything we needed and then some. What was pleasing was knowing that
the owner/management company were only a phone call away if anything cropped up. The bathrooms were spacious and well equipped with new towels, the pool area was lovely and all our party enjoyed it. We would definitely return•By AdyLeicestershire from Leicestershire on 8/7/2011 for a stay in 7/2011
