About Ron Quake

I am a retired software entrepreneur and my wife is a nurse. We live on a horse farm in Maine with two big dogs. We love Maine and are beginning to love Florida. This is our vacation home and not a full time rental property. We will use it several times during the year (especially in January) and rent it out for a portion of the year to offset our expenses.

Ron Quake purchased this house in 2014

Why Ron Quake chose Davenport

We looked at many properties in the Orlando area before we found Highlands Reserve. Highlands is the most beautiful neighborhood in the area with the surrounding golf course and heavily treed streets. Our villa is backed to a conservation area and a short walk to the golf clubhouse, community pool, tennis court and playground.

What makes this house unique

Since this is our vacation home and not just a rental property we completely refurbished and decorated it after we bought it in May, 2014. We bought quality appliances, solid furniture, beautiful cabinets, granite counter tops, and comfortable mattresses and added a game room. We love our vacation home and you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We enjoyed your villa. Although we were unable to use the pool during this trip we will definitely be back

Highly Recommend this lovely home!

  • 4 of 5

We have been staying at various vacation homes for the past 10 years--this by far was one of the best. This lovely home has been updated with all the amenities--furniture, granite countertops, flat screen televisions in every bedroom, etc. Most importantly, it was CLEAN. The home is well maintained, layout of the home was great, and location very convenient (Disney is a 20-minute drive). We have 5 kids, and we had plenty of space. The kitchen comes equipped with most everything--the only drawbacks were not enough child-friendly cups/dishes and lack of pizza pan/cutter/bakeware. The extra space in the lanai was very nice. We had one slight hiccup when we noticed the pool was dirty, but the management company sent someone right out to take care of it (even after hours). The management company's service was impeccable. The air conditioner wasn't working as well as it should have, and the day we left, we noticed the management company arriving to install a new air conditioning system--bonus for future visits! We will definitely return to this home!

Owner's Response: We replaced the air conditioning system with a variable speed Bryant Evolution Extreme which is the same as the Carrier Infinity 20. A variable speed system runs from 40 - 100 percent of the top speed and keeps the temperature within one tenth of a degree of the thermostat setting. The thermostat can also be used to control the humidity. The maintenance and cleaning of the pool is done weekly and has been excellent during the past. For some reason they missed doing the cleaning that week. The pool company has assured me it will not happen again.

Clean and nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

The home was much nicer than we anticipated. The pool was warm and whole home was family friendly. The neighborhood was very quiet as well. Home has ability of sleeping ten comfortably which was a surprise! We had seven family members and still had an extra bedroom :)

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We are in the Villa right now. We arrived January 4 th 2016 for 3 months. This is the nicest place we have ever rented. Ron and Mary Jane have upgraded their home to a high standard. Their are 3 sets of indoor dishes and one set for outside. Their are four sets of glasses and crystal wine glasses. Their are 2 sets of upscale cutlery. The bedding is of high standard. The backyard is private backing onto trees. The grocery store is 2 minutes away. Disney is 20 minutes. Ron and Mary Jane are wonderful to deal with and the management company responds quickly when needed. We would rent this place again for the three months.
