Highgate Park Vacation Rentals

Highgate Park - An Upscale Gated Vacation Rental Community

Built in 2005, Highgate Park, Davenport is one of the newer gated vacation rental communities in the Orlando area. It's also one of the sub-communities within Davenport's Legacy Park vacation rental community. Highgate Park offers an array of different sized upscale homes and villas with private pools in a tranquil woodland setting. There are also some communal facilities within the community and aside from being close to local golf courses, Highgate Park is also under 22 minutes from Orlando's Walt Disney World® theme park.

Vacation Rental Homes at Highgate Park

All of the Highgate Park holiday rental villas are detached single family properties and come fully air conditioned. Although the vacation rental homes here all differ in what they provide, in the main, they're well-equipped and spacious and have their own private, screened-in swimming pools and sometimes a jacuzzi.

The homes here range in size from 3 to 6 bedrooms with between 1,400 and 3,300 sq.ft of covered living space. Highgate Park comprises a combination of residential and individual, usually privately owned vacation homes. The beautifully appointed homes here have multiple bedroom suites and fully equipped kitchens often with upgraded stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Also, a lot of the homes have both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Because of the competitive nature of the vacation rental market, some homes now offer a home theater and even exercise rooms. All homes will provide you with everything you'll need to make the most of your vacation. The larger homes are also suitable for multi family parties of guests.

A lot of the Orlando area higher quality vacation rental homes, especially the more expensive properties, come equipped with a games room which usually features a pool table, table tennis, air hockey and arcade games.

Onsite Entertainment

Highgate Park is set in a well manicured landscape and staying in a vacation rental home here means that you are perfectly located for all Florida's theme parks and attractions. In terms of onsite entertainment, even though the community is not a resort, Highgate Park does offer some communal facilities. There's a full sized tennis court and a children's playground in the center of the community. Access to both of these is complimentary for both vacation rental guests and home owners.

Reaching the Attractions from Highgate Park

Florida, and in particular, Central Florida is renowned as a world leader in tourism. But the jewel in the Central Florida's crown is the large number of attractions and natural resources it has available to tourists. These are predominantly spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Highgate Park. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is doable on a day trip. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

Some might say that Orlando is famous for two things - Walt Disney World® and Universal Orlando. However, there's much more to Orlando than just theme parks, no matter how much excitement they bring. The city can boast that it's one of the world's most renowned golf destinations in the world with many award-winning courses that are even stops on the PGA Tour. Even if you're not a scratch golfer, there is abundance of golf courses to suit all playing levels. If you're looking for a casual round of golf at an executive or par-3 course for the whole family, where you don't need to be too nervous about keeping up the pace or dress code, there's lots to choose from.

So, you'll never be too far away when you need to pick up that bottle of wine, or a few beers and the steaks for the poolside BBQ.

If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further.

But, if you're looking for more upscale shopping then you'll need to head into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando is a shopper's paradise. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping options within a 30 minute drive, retail therapy is never too far away.

The Weather at Highgate Park

The climate of Florida is heavily influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are in close proximity to the ocean. Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is a point of demarcation for the climate of the Sunshine state. To the North of the lake, which is where Highgate Park is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Highgate Park, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant, through to extremely hot (June-Sept) throughout the year. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.

Alternative Communities

Highgate Park is a great place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which can be found within a few miles of Highgate Park and which might also be of interest. It's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In Davenport and Clermont, you might want to consider Calabay Parc (the other community) and also Calabay Parc at Tower Lake and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to limit the expenditure, then check out Crescent Lakes . And turning to the vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If you can spend a little more, then how about looking at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills or Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; establish your needs including the planned dates of travel and the number of you traveling before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving to Highgate Park

If you're heading to Orlando, then the chances are that you're going there to enjoy the world-class theme parks. In this sunny Florida city, Disney, Universal and SeaWorld are the big three parks, each attracting tens of millions of visitors every year. This obviously comes as no surprise to the airlines which operate a substantial number of international and domestic flights into Orlando's airports each day. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Highgate Park.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers far less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Highgate Park, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Highgate Park from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192 in a westerly direction. Once on Hwy 192 W, drive for 6 miles and then turn left onto US27. Continue on US27 for 2 miles and then turn right onto Legacy Park Boulevard and Legacy Park and Highgate Park can be found straight ahead.

As the journey involves using Highway 192, you should be aware that the 192 has brightly colored Guide Markers along various sections which make it easier to navigate. These are difficult to miss and they count down as US27 is approached.
