Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Co-owned by 2 Canadian Brothers and their families. This is our vacation property to enjoy year round and share with our family, friends and guests, You! We have made many improvements in our home since we purchased it. We've updated furniture, fixtures, lighting, flooring, linens, and pool/deck furniture for everyone to enjoy. Between our two families, one lives in Eastern Canada and one in Western Canada, we spend about 7 weeks a year in the sun, relaxing and enjoying much needed family time with our kids. We have not gone overboard in our decorating since we have such a variety of people using the house. Florida is not just about Disney. There are so many things to experience and we try something new everytime we are down for a holiday. Just our community alone offers you 18 holes of golf professionally designed and challenging for the avid golfer.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands Reserve, Davenport, FL, USA:
Our home is just that, a HOME. It is truly a comfortable, clean, well maintained, well equipped vacation home. It's not just a rental property. A place you can settle back and relax, all day by the pool if you like or to come back to after a long day at the theme parks. You can put your feet up, have a glass of wine by the pool, watch tv, read a book, all in quiet and comfort. With a south facing pool/back yard and beautiful deck with table, chairs and loungers, there's space for everyone to unwind, chill and relax. Super quiet neighbors on either side and no one behind. A stay here will convince you to never stay in a hotel again, not when there is the option for an entire home. You just can't beat it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we bought the house, the first thing we noticed compared to so many other homes we'd stayed in or looked to purchase, was the difference in size. Our home had such a great floor plan, it was wide open, bright and inviting. But it lacked color and warmth. We started by removing all the carpet in the living areas (except the bedrooms) and had tile laid throughout. This helps in the hot summer days to cool the house down. We then added color through curtains, new light fixtures, new art work, pillows, new bedspreads and furniture, flat screen tv's, etc. It was an amazing transformation. It felt like home. We have before an after pictures and it's hard to believe it's the same house. We loved the location. Highlands Reserve is a great community in comparison to so many around. It's well manicured lawns and higher end homes in addition to the Golf Course, Tennis courts and community pool make it an attractive alternative to other communities. It's location to Disney was perfect. You can avoid the I-192 and all it's traffic, lights and people, and take the I-4 to exit 67 in about 15 minutes. This takes you right to all the Disney Parks and Downtown Disney hassle free. We also loved that we could be on the road to the Gulf of Mexico in 5 minutes, and be in Tampa in 45 or Clearwater in an hour. We love to drive there for a day at the beach, to take a dinner cruise or just walk along the beach to collect shells. It's an easy, relaxing drive in a day.
