Just returned from our golf vacation in Orlando. Everything was wonderful. The accommodations were great. Everyone had a wonderful time and was very impressed with the services you provide. I really appreciate the service I received. I will definitely recommend you to other golfers planning to visit Orlando, and also plan more golf vacations from your services. Thanks once again Barrie for all your help in making our golf vacation a great one.
I just wanted to say thank you. Everything about the house was wonderful. Everyone had a great time and we all had our own space. My husband and I have decided that renting a house is the only way to go when on a vacation with our girls. I plan on keeping your web page on file so I can use it when we decide to go back to Florida.....not for a couple of years, but of course anything is possible.
We are just back from a wonderful but too short golf vacation!
We had a great time with weather to match (around 85 every day!). The golfing was great. Our two favourites were Panther Lake at Orange County National and Mystic Dunes (a great suggestion). The Highlands Reserve course was also an enjoyable experience. Talk about lightning quick greens! Southern Dunes left a bit to be desired as some of the fairways and greens were not of the same quality as the others. But overall a great experience.
If Air Canada keeps its direct flight to Orlando, you will most certainly have repeat customers. Janice's house was very comfortable although we needed a road map to get around. Is you house across the street to the right or left? There also seemed to be a sizable British community.
Our group of 12 golfers is from the Columbus, Indiana area. This past November was our 10 annual Florida golf trip. Our group has stayed and played everywhere in Florida from the Panhandle to The Keys. The last four years we have stayed in the Orlando area. The last three years have been at Highlands Reserve. Two years ago while looking on the Internet for planning our trip, I was very fortunate to hook up with Barrie Pike. Barrie was very professional, and at the same time extremely friendly and helpful. Barrie’s homes at Highlands Reserve are of superior quality and comfort. We have stayed in one of Barrie’s four-bedroom home, and this last year a five-bedroom home. Both were a joy to stay in.
I have dealt with the financial matters of renting the homes both via the mail service and through the Internet and the Pay Pal program. Both years the transactions went flawlessly (although booking over the internet and payment through Pay Pal is much quicker and easier.) I have never had a problem with any of Barrie’s rentals, no hidden fees, no surprises, just a great home and a great bargain.
Also I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know about the excellent location of Highlands Reserve in your travel around the Orlando area. Our group also plays other courses in the area and the ease of getting to these courses is absolutely unbelievable. We have stayed in the Kissimmee area and the traffic and getting around was a real pain. This definitely has never been a problem since we started staying at Highlands Reserve.
Lastly, I do want to tell you about the Highlands Reserve course. It truly is an excellent course and the management and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I would recommend playing the course strongly and is a very good value and fun to play. (I have played 40-50 courses in Florida over the past 10 years and H. R. ranks up there with the best.)
I do hope you enjoy your stay at Highlands Reserve. I am confident that you will.
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we all had a wonderful time playing golf in the Orlando area and staying at the Villa. Everyone is talking about "next year" already. The choice of alternate course was great as well.
Add me to your reference list.
I think you said you are on your way to Orlando April 19, 02 so you may already be mobile. I would like to express my thanks and that of the others in my group, on putting together a great trip for us. The golf was fantastic especially Panther Lake and Crooked Cat. Although my only good round was my first 18 at Highlands Reserve, the rest of the trip was the best ever. Our house was great perfect for the four of us. We were only 15 minutes away from Pleasure Island where we went on Saturday night and had a great dinner at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant and partied the rest of the night at three different clubs.
All in all, we had a great time and everyone wants in next year. By the way, I believe it was on the back nine, there were two very large homes that looked like rentals. How much would they rent for and how big were they? Just in case we grow this trip by a few people next year.
Bye for now
Sorry I have taken so long to contact you, but I would just like to say how much we enjoyed ourselves in Florida, and how nice you villa is. Thanks for the use of it I think we will be using it again at some stage America is a very friendly place and the theme parks are very close and easy to find from you villa
Once again thanks very much
Barrie and Jane
Just returned from the Highlands Reserve golf vacation. We all had a great time. We thank you for your efforts in helping us enjoy a nice peaceful villa and an excellent golf course. I have already given your name to several golfers whom I met while in Orlando, and other friends from Streator, IL. We will be in touch for next year.
Thanks again for your efforts.
Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had on our golf trip. The villas were first class the course was great. All the guys said it was the best trip we ever had we will never go back to Myrtle Beach. The weather was sunny and in the 80's every day. Thank you for all your help. See you next year.
Just want to drop you a note to let you know that the villa we stayed in this past weekend was new and clean and nicely furnished. The whole vacation experience was smooth and we really enjoyed ourselves. You will hear from me again on my next trip and I have already recommended you to my friends and family.
Once again, thanks.
