"We have been going to this lake since 1984 but this was our first stay at this house. Great beach with plenty of shade from the trees and a good dock. Water level was great and the end of the dock has water 6 feet deep and it drops off quickly making for no worries with an inboard boat. We ski and wakeboard and this is a great rental for these activities. House is good size with plenty of room and a very big kitchen. Back yard is spacious and the porch has great room to eat outside and relax! We were there 6 nights and are already planning to return next summer."Guest: Cherie Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 11, 2014View listing
"We had an amazing vacation and felt right at home in this beautiful home! Plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Kids LOVED the heated pool, the game room, and the Wii game system. This home was very clean and the location was perfect- 2 miles to grocery store and Walmart. We did have a maintenance issue with the garbage disposal leaking. However, Christine and Robert handled it immediately and we had great communication with them prior to/during our trip. Very close to Disney, SeaWorld and attractions. Would definitely recommend this property and a big thank you to Christine and Robert for their outstanding communication and help during our stay!"Guest: Christine M.

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.
You can do plenty of shopping without leaving The Villages. There are boutiques scattered throughout the town squares, including many of the country's most popular brands. There are also grocery stores, pharmacies and superstores that will help you find everything you need. You can even venture throughout The Villages on your golf cart, the most fun way to travel through a small town.
