Royal Highlands Reviews (10)

Average Rating for this Community

We have lived in Royal Highlands for five years. Our neighbors are so friendly and helpful. One third of this community is dedicated conservation (land and water). We love to walk the Nature Trail. 18 hole golf course too. Do as much or as little as you like! Dog friendly. A monthly newsletter keeps us informed. We are proud to call Royal Highlands our home.


From the moment we drove into the community, we felt at home. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and very informative. The community is well landscaped with trees and flowers, there are lakes and wet lands that attract birds. There are so many activites from which to choose. Whether your preference is sports, games, music, dance, fitness, arts and crafts or gardening, or nothing at all you will find just what you want at Royal Highlands!


My wife and I looked at houses in five PUDs before selecting one in Royal Highlands. It was not our favorite house but Royal Highlands really sold us on their amenities and available activities. The people we met were the friendliest we could have anticipated.


We looked at Pringle communities on recommendations from other folks we knew, starting in 2003. We looked at six areas around Leesburg, settling on a beautiful building lot in Royal Highlands. We moved into a rental home while we watched our own custom designed home being built. We have been in our home since 2005 and we love it. Our home-based, customer-service business is here and our yard is a Florida friendly bird and butterfly paradise. Loads of activities for all levels of involvement. If you are bored here, it's all on you. Come, visit, see, stay!

Moved in May of 2014. Been having a blast. Neighbors have been great and community is awesome.


We've been at Royal Highlands for only five months and have fallen in love with the community. There are numerous clubs and organizations which perfectly complement the full suite of amenities available to residents. Come, visit, and enjoy community living.


Love that there is a indoor and outdoor pool here. Tons of nice people live here and everyone is friendly.


Great 55+ community. Great Hall clubhouse is nice and amenity area has a great pool. Golf course is respected and the open space is serene. Recommend!


I have been at Royal Highlands for a couple years now. It's very quiet and well maintained. The people are very friendly and I am involved in lots of the clubs. The golf course is very nice and the restaurant is one of my favorites.
