Highlands Reserve Florida Villas – Reasons to stay there

The Highlands Reserve villa community has been around since the early 90’s and used to be about as far as you went on US27. It was also one of the first and biggest short stay vacation rental communities with a golf course.

But over the last 20 years the area have exploded and now there are hundreds of Orlando villa communities to choose from. So why should you still look at renting a villa on Highlands Reserve.

Top 5 Reasons to Stay at Highlands Reserve

We have put together the top 5 reasons to stay at Highlands Reserve. We hope you agree but if you have another great reason then please leave a comment below and I will add it to the list.

  1. The Highlands Reserve golf course is ideal for tourists and golfers that don’t play that much. The reason I say this is because it only has one hole with water on it (10th). And it’s fairly wide off the tee so there is plenty of room to miss the odd fairway. Don’t get me wrong the course is still a good challenge for low handicaps but it’s great for beginners and holiday golfers. There are also a number of other golf courses nearby including the Country Club at Champions Gate and the Greg Norman designed courses at Champions Gate (the National and International).
  2. Most of the Highlands Reserve villas are on larger lots meaning you get a bigger pool deck and maybe a garden around the villa. Also the house next door is not so close. All the new Orlando vacation rentals that are being built now are on very small plots with the builders trying to maximise there profits.
  3. When the Highlands Reserve community was first built back in the 90’s it was pretty much all vacation rentals. Over time this has changed and you now have a nice balance of residents and guests. This has a couple of benefits, the first being security as you now have lots of people living their full time. The second is that with full time residents the community is maintained to a higher standard. There is also a kids play near the main entrance of Highlands Reserve.
  4. Highlands Reserve is located just off US27 and very close to the HWY192. This is great location as you have loads of restaurants, shops, and a Publix supermarkets all close by at Berry Town Center. There is also a wal-mart just a few miles away.
  5. The last reason why Highlands Reserve is a great place to stay is it’s easy access to the Orlando theme parks. As I said Highlands Reserve is located just off US27 and is a very easy drive to Disney. The best route to the Disney Parks from Highlands Reserve is down HWY192 and then left down Sherberth Road. This leads directly to Animal Kingdom and from there you can also access all the other Disney Parks.

After reading all the above 5 reasons why you should stay at Highlands Reserve we hope you agree. If you have another reason why it’s a great place to stay let me know by leaving a comment below.

This is the entrance to the Highlands Reserve golf course community.

As you enter the Highlands Reserve community, passing the waterfall entrance, manicured lawns and flowering borders you drive down the wide palm tree lined boulevard and gain a sense of quiet and space.  Highlands Reserve is a large estate with smaller communities within it, each with an individual look and feel, most of which are named after famous golf clubs including, Birkdale, Troon, Gleneagles, Prestwick and the Belfry.  The Highlands Reserve vacation rentals are on large plots and not as close together as some other nearby communities.  Each home is privately owned and therefore furnished individually from it’s neighbour, with many of the Highlands Reserve vacation rentals, having either a forest, conservation or golf course view, which are great if you want to pop out in the evening and have a chip around, but don’t get caught by the ranger!!

Coming January 2013 we will be adding a video tour of Highlands Reserve to give you a feel for how the vacation rentals are laid out and also take you inside some of the homes, around the golf course and show you nearby shopping and restaurants. If you have anything you would like to see in our video about Highlands Reserve please leave a comment below and we will try to include it.

On our last visit to Highlands Reserve we took this short video giving a quick look at the community and how the vacation rentals are laid out but in our next video we will expand on this and show you a lot more so come back in the new year, but for enjoy!
