"Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Generally a good experience but the batteries in the electric golf cart were completely dry when I checked in and the cart would not maintain an adequate charge to go everywhere we wanted to go from this remote location."Guest: A guest from Muncy, PA Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 3, 2014View listing
"From the moment we walked in we loved this place. It was comfortable, clean and quiet. The neighborhood was great and close to what we needed. We took the golf cart to "our" pool, to the mailbox and to the dog park, and just for tooling around the neighborhoods. Jack is very much into grilling, and we enjoyed delicious meals on the lanai several times a week. The restaurants were not far and the food was always great. All in all we had a wonderful stay, loved the home and accommodations, and would happily recommend it to anyone."Guest: Jack and Sandi Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: June 10, 2014View listing
"Loved the place and hope to return again. My wife and I along with our good friends met at this wonderful place for two weeks of golf, shopping and entertainment. The house was perfectly located between Spanish Springs and Sumpter Landing. The four person golf cart was a great asset. The house layout was better than expected. The master bedroom suite was separated from the other two bedrooms, which could be closed off with a sliding door, making these two private suites. Most of our time was spent in the Lanai which overlooked a green on the adjacent par 3 golf course. The Wi-Fi was another great feature of this house. This house hit all the points I was looking for in a rental for two couples.......great location; 3 bedrooms (private); 4-person golf cart; on the golf course; Wi-Fi. The kitchen had everything even though we really only used it for breakfast. Pat and Terry were great to work with and were available if we needed anything, but we didn't. Everything was clean and perfect. My wife and I always try to leave things in better condition than we found, but that was difficult since the place was immaculate. All we could do is put a new battery in the remote for the lanai ceiling fan. Again, we hope to return."Guest: Doug & Kathy P. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 9, 2014View listing

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home."Guest: Ralph Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 7, 2015View listing
The Villages Travel Tips
The retirement community of The Villages is located in sunny, central Florida. It is 20 miles south of Ocala and 57 miles northwest of Orlando in Lake, Sumter and Marion counties. This development is home to more than 51,000 people and the fastest-growing micropolitan area in the U.S. as well as the fastest-growing small town.
The Villages' history dates back to the 1960s when Harold Schwartz, a Michigan businessman, sold land to retirees looking to escape to a warmer climate. Today, the descendants of Harold Schwartz and his son H. Gary Morse still control The Villages.
The Villages Attractions
The master-planned retirement community offers several forms of recreational activity. The Villages has numerous golf courses and offers "Free Golf for Life." Thirty-two of the courses are 9-hole layouts while the remaining 10 are country club championship courses. Two additional courses will be 27-hole layouts with a total of 621 holes of golf by the end of a final course build?-out.
Visit the Florida Carriage Museum and Resort and take a step back in time. This museum is home to the largest collection of antique horse-drawn carriages in the U.S. and is one of the largest in the world. There are more than 160 carriages from Europe and America, including the 1850 Ambruster Dress Chariot that once carried Emperor of Austria Franz Joseph and his wife, Elisabeth.
