Recent The Villages property reviews
"We loved staying in Nina and Mike's beautiful and convenient home. The Villages is wonderful and their home is convenient to everything. A 10 minute walk to the pool, an 8 minute drive to Sumter Landings town square and restaurants everywhere make this is the ideal location to stay in The Villages. The owners are easy to work with and checked with us to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. We hope to return soon..."Guest: Alan L.

"We were totally pleased with the property. Unfortunately, now we are spoiled--other properties pale in comparison. The convenience, the decorating, the comfort--all were fantastic!"Guest: Robert Gifford Date of Stay: January 2007 Review Submitted: January 1, 2007View listing
"This is our third visit to The Villages and this home rates as the best. Our previous rentals were either in poor locations or had lots of negatives with the house. This property has it all, Location, beauty, spotless and well equipped. We have only been here three days this time, but we have already taken advantage of so many things that are close to the house. We have been able to use the Golf Cart for just about everything, the Supermarket, Sumter Square and over a dozen restaurants are about a 10 minute golf cart ride away. There are also numerous pools and Golf Courses within a 10 minute golf cart ride of the house. There are only tow of us here, but the house would easily accomodate four people and the four seater golf cart would work well. If we return again we will be sure to select this property."Guest: GolfMan Date of Stay: July 2013 Review Submitted: July 14, 2013View 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.
