About Deb Houin

We own and operate 3 Dairy Farms in Indiana which is a lot of long hours and hard work. That is why we enjoy visiting our home frequently. We currently have 48 employees.

Deb Houin purchased this house in 2005

Why Deb Houin chose Highlands Reserve

We found ourselves renting here in Highlands Reserve every year with the family and decided to invest in a home. We toured many homes but when I seen this one I just knew it was it! This is my home away from home and I love it here!

What makes this house unique

It is so quiet here and the view of the golf course is just beautiful. Yet it is close to all the parks that you might want to visit. Floyd likes to golf and I love to just relax by the pool and watch the golfers go by. One nice thing is your not to close to the tee box to hear what might be said after a bad shot!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Deb & Floyd, Thanks for sharing your lovely home,. We all had a great time! Sad to go. Maybe next time we come back it will be warmer than 50 degrees. Thanks!

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

House was great, pool was great. Owners quick to respond. The dryer took forever to dry so not sure if that should be looked at. The only suggestion we would make is maybe fill the cracks around the pool so when it rains it might keep worms away. It rained while on our trip and for 2 days we had to clean the pool from all the worms in it. Sealing the cracks might stop them. But other than that great trip

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about the dryer issue, I was not aware that there was a problem, I will get maintenance to take look at it. If know one tells me about the problem then I can't fix it, you should have let me know there was a problem while you were there. I do understand about the worms as I have also seen it first hand. I was told by my maintenance company that we can not seal the cracks as then the water can't get away. I really wish we had a solution for it also. I hope it didn't ruin your vacation. Thank you for bringing these items to my attention. Please contact me directly if you had any additional concerns so I can take care of it for any future guests.

My spouse and I have been renting houses in Florida for many years. We usually stay near Orlando or the Tampa area. We have had hit and misses but mostly hits. We do our homework and are rarely surprised.

Deb’s home in Davenport was a surprise. A pleasant surprise. We expected from the photos and reviews that we would enjoy our one month stay but pictures do not do it justice. There is also the intangibles like the owner and the management company that can make a difference.

Let’s start with the home. It is located in the beautiful Highlands Reserve golf course. The house is one of the last houses on a cul-de-sac so very quiet with little traffic. The view from the back is the fairway of one of the par 3 holes. The only sound is the occasional foursome chipping on to the green. Nice. The house on arrival was spotless, well decorated and maintained.

The pool was kept as close to 90 degrees as possible with a heat pump and this was not easy as during one short spell in late January the overnight hit a 10 year record low. The majority of days the pool heat was near 90 by noon. Very unusual at this time of year but much appreciated by our two grand daughters.

The main things we look for in a home rental is comfortable beds and sofas. Good variety of TV channels including Netflcks, good wifi reception and free North America long distance. You can check all of those off your list.

Appliances were in good working order and the kitchen was well stocked.

In the pool area we had a gas BBQ and more comfortable chairs and lounges than we needed.

So what makes this home the best yet? Yes we have rented homes in the past that are equal in amenities and location but we find that the big difference here is the owner. Debra from day one answered every question immediately. The overall value and downpayment required is very reasonable for a house in this region.

We had a couple of minor issues when we first arrived. Minor issues but when you are staying a month they can become major issues. Not with Deb. She immediately contacted the management company who came over the same day. The issues were resolved. What makes the difference is they both followed up over the next few days to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. They both empathized that no issue was too small and encouraged us to let them know if there were any other problems. We had no further issues.

Thanks again Deb. We will be back.
