Highland Meadows Vacation Rentals

Highland Meadows Vacation Rentals - A Florida Travel Guide

The Highland Meadows Vacation Rentals Guide from Tripelli - A handy insight into the rental homes and villas in Highland Meadows, plus the nearby shops, restaurants & golf courses.

Highland Meadows in Davenport, Florida is a vacation rental community located just off US27 and minutes from I-4. The community was originally built over ten years agi, but has been expanding ever since and at the time of writing there are homes currently being constructed. Although not a resort, Highlands Meadows offers a number of resort style facilities. So, families looking for resort features such a communal swimming pool and cabana, a children's playground, an athletic field, and a walking trail and all within a short distance of Disney World® Orlando and a number of championship golf courses should check out Highland Meadows.

Staying at Highland Meadows

Highland Meadows is a community of predominantly single storey homes which are a mixture of both residential and vacation rental properties. The homes in the community tend to be on the smaller side for vacation rental homes and are 3 or 4 bedroom, 2 or 3 bathroom detached villas with 1,570 sq. ft to 2,500 sq. ft of air conditioned living space. Although building here started in the early 2,000s, development is still ongoing at the time of writing and so this should be borne in mind when researxhing a vacation rental property.

All of the vacation rental homes on Highland Meadows are fully air conditioned, well-equipped and comparatively spacious and have their own screened swimming pool. Some will also feature woodland area views from the lanai screened pool deck. Highland Meadows vacation rental homes come decorated and furnished with fully equipped kitchens. All homes should provide cable TV and free Wi-Fi and should provide you with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay.

These days, the vacation rental market is becoming ever more competitive, and as result, the owners of many homes are now including a fully equipped games room in their property. This is normally situated in the converted garage space and may sometimes be air conditioned. The games room may contain some or all of the following: a pool table and/or Foosball, and/or air hockey, etc.

Highland Meadows on Youtube

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Guide, we visited each of the communities in the Orlando area and in a lot of cases we also recorded a brief video of the community and uploaded it to Youtube. We did this on our visit to Highland Meadows, which you can see by clicking below. These videos are fairly short and are simply intended to give an impression of the community and provide potential guests with more of a feel for the neighborhood.

Truly remarkable figures, but, whilst there are some spectacular beaches and all year round sunshine, the majority of tourists travel from all corners of the planet to come to see a certain talking mouse at Disney World®.

Over the past six decades, Disney and the other large corporations behind the theme parks have propelled Orlando on to become a world leader in mass tourism. The city's theme parks are the primary force behind that unparalleled improvement in fortunes for the city.

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 achievable on a day out. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

Dining at Home
If you're thinking of cooking at the villa, then you'll want to find a supermarket. That's straighforward; there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a five minute drive of Highland Meadows. 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.

Non Supermarket Shopping
If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. A few minutes away up the US27 is Posner Park where you'll find an IMAX Movie Theater and a whole range of restaurants and stores including, Books-a-Million, JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Shopping for Apparel
If you want mall style, or more upscale shopping then you'll need to drive into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers great options. 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 Highland Meadows Weather

When staying in Florida, you'll never be more than seventy five miles from the coast, so as a result, the weather everywhere in the Sunshine state is influenced by the ocean. On top of that, the weather in the state is divided into two. The climatic split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. The region to north of the lake, which is where Highland Meadows is located, experiences weather which is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Highland Meadows, Davenport, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the Fall, Winter and Spring months and extremely hot and humid weather during the period of June thru to September. Florida is not known the Sunshine state by accident, the sun shines on most days and the temperature rarely ventures below 32°F / 0°C. Which explains why, over the past fifty years, Disney and Universal Studios have both made Florida, and in particular Orlando, their home.

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

Alternative Vacation Homes to Highland Meadows

We would suggest that if you find a vacation rental home on Highland Meadows that meets your criteria, then you should inquire on its availability, but you should also continue to look for other homes, both on Highland Meadows and on other communities. So, we'll list a few examples starting with a couple of Davenport and Clermont communities which are further away from most of the attractions, but which are often priced more competitevely than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Champions Gate which is a very good community for golfers and Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is another great spot, if you're a golfer. If you're on a tighter budget, then take a look at Crescent Lakes . And then in the Kissimmee area, you might look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If you're looking to spend a little more, then we'd suggest checking out both Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and also Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer a different experience.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Disney area is excellent and the generally the homes on these communities are of a very high quality. So, we'd suggest that as a first step in your hunt for a vacation home, you try and 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 Highland Meadows

As the most visited destination in the U.S. and the world's theme park capital, Orlando is the epicenter of tourism activity in the USA. As a result, all major US airlines and a large number of international airlines operate substantial flight schedules into and out of Orlando throughout the year. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 40 minutes and 70 minutes driving time, respectively from Highland Meadows.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers much less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Highland Meadows, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Highland Meadows from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I-4. Stay on FL-417S, passing through three tolls, until reaching the I-4. Merge with the I-4 heading west toward Tampa and stay on the I-4 until reaching the Highway 27 exit (Exit# 55). It's also worth noting that during the afternoon rush hour (4:00-6:30pm), it's fairly common to be delayed for up to 20 minutes around exit 60 of the I-4 in slow moving, or stopped traffic.

On reaching exit #55, turn left onto Highway 27 and Highland Meadows will be found on the left after about six miles after turning left onto Highland Meadows St.
