Recent The Villages reviews
"Beautiful home and fully stocked. Everything worked and all we needed were groceries. Played a lot of Pickleball and went to the Squares free entertainment. We did not play golf but the courses looked in great shape. We also had some great meals at some of the restaurants. The landscaping at the Villages is beautiful. Bring a GPS as the Villages is huge. Be sure to get a map at one of the information centers. There must be at least 30 Recreation centers so you never have to drive far to get to one. Had a great time and would rent this unit again."Guest: Jerry Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 24, 2014View listing
"As soon as you come in the front door, it's easy to see this home is clean, comfortable and well maintained. It is exactly as described and really does feel like home. It is tastefully decorated and had everything that we needed including an ice cream scoop and a DVR. The home is conveniently located and the golf cart is fun to scoot around in. The owner has been a pleasure to deal with and we appreciate them sharing their home with us. We had a great time and are already looking forward to coming back again next year. We'll definitely stay in the same home again."Guest: Ted & Sandra Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 23, 2014View listing

"My husband and I rented this Villa for five weeks while we shopped for a home in The Villages. If this rental was for sale, we would be the new owners. It is conveniently located to restaurants, entertainment and shopping plazas when we felt like going out. If we were looking for some alone time with each other and eating/staying in, it was perfect for that too. It's located in a quiet neighborhood with a private, gorgeous yard (BBQ included) and we loved eating and relaxing in the screened lanai. As we both enjoy cooking, we were happy to be in a rental with a well stocked kitchen including sharp, not dull, knives for preparing meals. We travel often and this is the cleanest rental we have ever rented. The landlords, Helena and Frank, thought of everything including a breakfast basket for our first morning in the rental and a toiletries basket in the bathroom in case we had forgotten a needed item. Overall, a perfect rental."Guest: Denny & Barbara Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 17, 2014View 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.
