Once a quiet town surrounded by citrus groves, Orlando was almost overnight transformed into a tourist mecca by the arrival of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse in 1974. Other attractions followed Disney, and Orlando soon grew into a vibrant metropolitan area with world-class cultural offerings.
Highlands Reserve sits on top of one of the highest areas of Florida and offers incredible scenery along with an excellent golf course. Situated just off the HWY27 in Davenport, the community is 35 minutes from Orlando International Airport, 50 minutes from Sanford International airport, 15 minutes to Disney, 20 minutes to Universal Studios and SeaWorld, and less than 5 minutes to Berry Town Center (strip mall) for an excellent supermarket (Publix), family restaurants, bars, banks, a petrol station, hairdressers, beauty salon and nail spa. The Highlands Reserve Golf Clubhouse is a few minutes walk from the villa, providing complimentary use of the community tennis court, swimming pool and children’s play area.
