"We enjoyed our stay at this home away from home. Thank you for the use of the all in one printer - saved me several times. Hardwood floors in the living area and carpet in bedrooms. Nice private patio for grilling, excellent televisions in living room and bedrooms for those possible rainy days. The owners have thought of everything that you might possibly need from cooking, to ice chest, lawn chairs, etc. Very clean, updated and good repair - recommend it highly."Guest: Gary M.

"The home was so much more spacious then it looked in the pictures. It was very neat, clean, great décor, very comfortable & had everything we needed(and more). Beds were super comfy. Plenty of extra pillows and warm soft blankets. The bedrooms were on opposite sides of the house which made for great privacy if you are with another couple. There is also a pull out couch for an extra guest. We enjoyed the outdoor patio which was great for your morning cup of coffee. It had all the kitchen amenities you would need, and included beach towels which was nice so we did not have to pack them. It was an hr. and a half to nearby beaches. We visited New Smyrna...it had beautiful sandy beaches and a fun restaurant which we ate at (Chase Landing). It was a little over an hr. to the theme parks in Orlando. We visited Wild Bills airboat Tour which was 30 minutes away. (Although Wild Willy's in Kissimmee was much better). The Villages were a fun places for shopping, dining & entertainment. One of the best restaurants we ate in the Villages was at Red Sauce...excellent food. Had a few restaurants on the water which were beautiful at sunset. People were very friendly in this area. A grocery store (Winn Dixie) is about 5 minutes away by golf cart, and this was very convenient many times. We had use to the golf cart with the house. This is how many get around in this town. We also made use of the family swimming pool which was minutes away. (Coconut Cove). The guys golfed 3 times during our week stay. Course were very nice. Bonifay was the nicest of the 3. The other two they golfed at were Nancy Lopez and Palmers Legend. This is the first time we rented a house as we are usually hotel kind of people. The owners were very helpful in answering any questions and were very knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience and would certainly do it again! THANK YOU so much to Patty and Richard for a most memorable week!"Guest: Deb Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 8, 2014View listing
"This is a beautiful home located overlooking a golf course. Everything you need is there for you. The house is spotless and has a screened area to have your morning coffee and watch the golfers or a beautiful sun set. The beds were very comfortable and there are ample towels and sheets if needed. Laurie was so easy to contact and so nice. I can't wait to rent the house again for a family member or tell my friends about it. I have found a jewel and if you are looking for the perfect place to stay then look no further."Guest: Jossie P. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 27, 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.
