Had a wonderful 2 weeks here in Orlando. Villa was well equipped and very comfortable. We had a great time in Disney and Universal and would love to stay here again. Thanks for opening your home to us. Would recommend Appleby's, along side the Publix, for dinner, delicious food. Thank you

Great villa, no complaints! Everyone love the Pool, especially the kids. Wi-Fi was great for being able to keep in touch with home. Had a great two weeks visiting Disney, Waterparks etc (Chinese along side Publix was well utilized!). Thank you for letting us use your villa

We were very pleased with this comfortable villa which was more than big enough for our family. Although our trip was plagued by torrential rains and storms we made the best of it and the children loved the parks and Disney character. Would have loved to spent more tie relaxing around the pool though. Alison, Adrian & Hannah.

Had a wonderful stay, villa is in a great location for all the parks. We had to report a few problems but they were all sorted very quickly. We would like to say a big thank you to Michael (owner) for his great communication when booking the villa.

Brilliant 2 weeks away. All the little extra extras really made it 'home from home' especially as we travelled with a 6 month old. (couldn't use the travel cot as it was fit to be used). but everything was brilliant. The kids and adults appreciated the Pool. Location is fantastic too. Wi-Fi was also great for keeping in touch with home

Great home from home villa

We have just returned from 14 days at Orlando Joy situated within the Highlands Reserve. Overall the accommodation was perfect in almost every department. It was very much a home from home. Rooms were all very spacious with copious amounts of cupboard space provided to unpack. The ration of rooms to bathrooms/showers was perfect and the showers were great. The master bedroom has a magnificent veranda which overlooks the 6th tee. All rooms have flat screen TVs and there was even a separate Cinema room with a massive screen with a great selection of DVDs to choose from. Perhaps maybe a few more kids choices would have been more of benefit to our group but a good selection none the less. Great space throughout the Villa to relax and unwind after long hot days at the various nearby attractions. The Disney parks were a short drive (15mins) and Universal (apx 25mins) The pool was great and just what our party needed. The kids loved it and were in it all the time. The pool is surrounded by a safety fence which was ideal given our smallest party member was at that age where you can't let out your sight so it was a good peace of mind. The kitchen was of good standard and the ice machine in the freezer was a great help. The kitchen is left completely empty so it is perhaps an idea to bring your own kit of essentials such as dish cloths, tea towels and cleaning liquids to get you started. We found this out to our detriment as we stopped off st the shops prior to arriving at the Villa to find we had to go back out again. Our party would also have benefited from a child's high chair as none was provided. The house has A/C which was perfect to come home to after long hot days. The house is managed locally by a private company who were excellent and responded to any questions we had very quickly. We had access to a supermarket, pub and various restaurants all within walking distance. We had dinner at Applebee's and breakfast at IHOP both were excellent and would recommend. Overall we would highly recommend this Villa it is really lovely, spacious and comfortable which helped make our holiday a memorable one! If we ever manage to get back over we would have no hesitation about trying to book this Villa again.

Orlando Joy Villa Highland Reserve

The villa was even more impressive than the photo's on the web site. It certainly was a luxury villa with everything needed for a great holiday. The location is excellent for both theme parks and shopping with Publix supermarket and eating out places within a minutes ride.Would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.

Great golfing location . Pool area can be noisy when golf course is busy.

Straight forward journey from the airport and access to the property logically simple. Limited dining options nearby but Publicx supermarket is in walking distance. We slept in the downstairs bedroom which was fairly comfortable but the bed was very noisy. Good kitchen and utility room both well equipped. Upstairs master bedroom a lot better but very warm, villa policy to keep air conditioning at 78 meant we were always hot. Pool area small especially if we had my son and his family with us. My Response We set our air conditioning for 78 degrees, which is the recommended temperature by the utility supplier, however we allow our guest to lower this by up to 3 degrees.

Visited on "February - 2018

lots of space for family or friends visiting

House is in a quiet neighbourhood surrounded by a golf course. Close to Disney without being in the middle of the tourist area. Close to grocery, couple of good resturants that are just a good walk if you desire. This was our third year dealing with the management and the owner. Some things that were a concern over the time we have rented were delt with. The pool is always maintained. We have recommended to some people that they rent from the same owner, we do hope they are satisfied as we have been.
