Highlands Reserve Vacation Rentals

Highlands Reserve - Luxury Florida Golfing Vacation Rentals

Sprawling over in excess of 150 acres, Highlands Reserve is an upscale residential and vacation rental golf community and sits at one of the highest elevations of the surrounding area. As a result, the view from both the community and golf course itself is stunning. The course was designed by championship course designer Mike Dasher and offers pine tree-lined fairways, normally more associated with courses in the Carolinas. The unique Floridian element is achieved by the clever addition of native citrus trees dotted around the course. As a final touch, add in the fast and challenging greens and this beautiful course becomes a fun challenge, no matter what your handicap.

If you're planning a Florida golfing break, then you'll be pleased to learn that all of the Highlands Reserve vacation homes are only minutes from the golf course and a number of the properties have House Links Membership, so if you rent one of these homes, then you'll get discounted golf rates. So, it's worth checking this with Highlands Reserve homeowners. If you're visiting Orlando to visit the theme parks, then Highlands Reserve is a great place to base yourself with Disney World's main gate a little over 25 minutes away. The other major Orlando theme parks of Universal Studios and SeaWorld are about 30 minutes away by car.

If you're also looking to enjoy the surf while staying in Orlando, then Highlands Reserve also offers easy access to beaches on both the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico coasts. Both coastlines are just over an hour's drive, so if you feel like taking the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic, or you can just chill out at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf. It's your choice.

Highlands Reserve Vacation Rentals

The homes on Highlands Reserve are a mixture of both residential and individual, privately owned vacation rental homes. The properties on the community are single family homes which are presented to a good standard and range in size from 3 to 7 bedrooms, sleeping up to 14 people. All vacation rental homes have a private screened swimming pool, and a lot of homes come equipped with a games room which usually features a pool table, table tennis and/or air hockey. Gaming consoles for the children, which are often Xbox and Playstation 4 systems, are also sometimes available at no additional cost.

Things to do on Highlands Reserve, Florida

Both onsite and within the local area surrounding a villa rental in the Highlands Reserve, you'll find everything you need for a quality golfing vacation. The golf course on the community is unusual in its design and is wide, undulating, fast and challenging and offers something for every level of golfer. So, in other words, you don't need to be a golf pro to stay in a vacation rental home on Highlands Reserve. There are also practice greens, practice bunkers, putting greens and professionals offering group and individual golfing lessons.

Reaching the Attractions from Highlands Reserve

Central Florida is renowned for the number and quality of attractions and natural resources it has to offer visitors. These are spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on day trips from Highlands Reserve. But if the theme parks and attractions aren't enough and the beach is calling, then why not take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just chill at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico? Both of these beaches are accessible on a day trip and are no more than a 90 minute drive away. However, it's worth mentioning that Highlands Reserve is a little further from the Orlando attractions than a number of other communities, particularly those in Kissimmee, but for what this community has to offer, we think that's not a major problem.
