Stayed August 2019. We’ve recently returned from Kim and Ian’s lovely villa after a 2 week stay in August. Communication prior to our visit was excellent- professional and friendly. We arrived very late on our first night and were immediately impressed by the cleanliness of the villa. Kim and Ian really have thought of everything their guests might need. The kitchen is well-appointed and it was great to have a few bits to get started (dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc). Bedrooms are great and theming is fantastic. We slept really well and felt safe within the Highgate Park community. The villa is within a short drive of some lovely restaurants and we also used Publix nearby for groceries. We particularly loved the pool area - again clean and well-maintained. The view of the conversation area was beautiful and we spent lots of time relaxing there. We enjoyed our stay so much we already have a quote for our next visit and can’t wait to confirm our dates shortly! Thanks again for allowing us to use your lovely Florida home.
August 10, 2019 returned from a 2 week stay in Florida. We stayed in this villa and would highly recommend. HARRY POTTER and MICKEY MOUSE themed rooms for the kids. Brilliant games room with pool and football tables and endless board games foe the kids. A good sized pool and jacuzzi. 20 minute drive to Disney, 30 minute drive to Universal. Close to a Walmart and publix. Lots of restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive with an Applebees and IHOP just 2 minutes round the corner. I booked direct with the owners and they were really helpful, made the whole process from booking to arrival very straight forward. The villa is well stocked with all sorted of things, high chairs, bikes, stole’s, towels including towels for the water parks, bedding, the list could go on and on. The villa is in a lovely area (highgate park), within a gated community, we felt very safe and secure at all times. The villa is clean and well maintained….. could not recommend enough!
What a fabulous place to stay!!
We stayed in July 2019. Kim and Ian have thought of everything to make the villa a great base for a busy Orlando Holiday.
The themed bedroom were a great hit, and the pool was fantastic. The fact that the villa is not overlooked is perfect, and we saw so much wildlife in the area behind the villa whilst relaxing at the pool...An armadillo, eagles, cranes, turtles...so so many!
One recommendation would be to have binoculars at the villa so guests could zoom in on the wildlife!
The villa has plenty of space to chill out, and the games room was well used by everyone. I also want one of those bbq’s for my own garden...it cooked steaks perfectly!
If we get the chance to return to florida, this will definitely be our 1st choice of base!
stayed May 2018... villa was very clean, and everything we needed was super easy to find. My family very much enjoyed the Harry Potter Villa and had a wonderful vacation. We can’t wait to come back! Thank you!!!

stayed Apr 2018.. Thank You for sharing your home with my family! Everything was perfect!! The location was amazing, not having any back neighbors! My girls thoroughly enjoyed the pool and game room. Thank you Ian for making our first family vacation such a success! We look forward to visiting your home again in your future!
David and Family Stayed Dec 2018...This experience was amazing all around. No improvements necessary. Ian (owner) was so easy and fast to communicate with, always providing helpful and useful feedback. The home itself was spotlessly clean inside and out and provide so many wonderful experiences....i.e. game room, bikes, pool, hot tub, themed kids rooms with bunks, in a private gated community less than 20 miles from Disney. Would love to stay here every time we visit. Thank you!
Mona and Family stayed Dec 2018 ... Ian was a fantastic host, very responsive, and the house was lovely. It was spotless, spacious, private and comfortable, and had so many thoughtful touches and amenities for both the adults and children. The themed kids’ rooms and the game room were fun for all. Also conveniently located 6 miles from Disney and close to plenty of restaurants and shopping. We will definitely recommend to anyone coming to visit the parks, and hope to stay here again next time we return.
Lakisha and Family stayed August 2018.....Wonderful hosts, very fast responses. Beautiful home with many great amenities. Great location and a nice community. Would definitely recommend this home for a family vacation. Many activities to do within the home if you choose not to do amusement parks.
KB and Family stayed 1st August 2018.... An excellent house very well maintained and in a great neighbour hood. Ian was very prompt in his replies and we had a wonderful week long stay
Maria and Family stayed June 2018...This house is amazing it exceeded every expectation we had! It was super clean the house had everything we needed. My two kids ages 8 and 3 were fully entertained our entire stay whether it was swimming or playing in the game room. The pool lights were a big hit with my kids because who doesn’t love night swimming! Overall no complaints absolutely incredible!
This was our home mid November 2018 for 2 weeks. Everything from our arrival to departure was great. The kids loved the themed bedrooms and pool plus the games room was a bonus. The villa was spacious enough for 2 families and location was good. There was a shopping area about a mile down the road which had a Publix supermarket and a few places to eat in and to get takeaways. All questions I had when I was there was answered quickly.
Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay here, and hopefully one day we will stay here again.
Thanks Ian and Kim.
Ps one in our group said a pin board or white board would be handy for guest to put recommendations on things to see and places to eat etc

Thanks for everything Kim, the whole thing has been first class and you made it all so easy. I’ll certainly recommend you and your Florida home and if we’re ever lucky enough to get back out, you’re the first person I’ll call.
All the best and thanks again x

21 Feb - 7 Mar- Well appointed villa in a central location close to Disney, shopping & restaurants. Community is gated & very quiet. West facing pool with no neighbors to the rear, we had full sun from late AM to sunset. Ian, our host, was always available whenever we had a question & absolutely went above & beyond to ensure our stay was as worry free as possible.

This was our second year staying at the house and we had a wonderful week. A slight problem with the hot tub, but we called, and it was fixed the next day. We’ll definitely be back again next year!

Stayed Dec 2018 Airbnb
The house is as it presented. The pool facing out on the grass and tree line is very nice. Plenty of chairs and loungers. We saw wild turkeys and sand hill cranes. The garage is full of fun stuff to do. Ian is very responsive and nice. I would recommend this house to anyone staying in the area. The Harry Potter room is adorable and the house is spacious and very clean. Having a washer and dryer is also a great plus to be able to pack light and dry swim suits!

Recently returned from the Harry Potter Villa. It was an amazing villa. Situated in a lovely gated community, the villa had everything you could need for your stay. I had the master bedroom with en-suite and I didn't want to leave it behind it was huge. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay close to the parks. Our daughter is a big harry potter fan and she absolutely loved her themed room.
Stayed August 2017
The house was clean and tidy, the location is great and very quiet, we had a great time.
