About the property


This is a 2000 sq. ft. Three bedroom, Two bathroom Designer home, which includes a 4 seat gas golf cart. Both the Master bedroom and first Guest bedroom have king size beds with adjoining full baths which make this home ideal for two couples or one couple who plan to have guests during their VACATION. The third bedroom has a daybed which converts to a double bed or two single beds. There is oak laminate flooring and tile throughout the house, a screened and windowed lanai overlooking the golf course and the fenced patio area with two rocking chairs, a gas grill and a electronically retractable awning. The fully equipped kitchen has a table and six chairs, plus an island with two bar stools. The living room has a 60 in. 3D, HD TV, a recliner and sectional sofa. The separate dining room has a table which can be extended to seat 8. Please take a moment to view the pictures of this home and READ the GUEST REVIEWS. This home has 19 Five Star reviews. I live a mile away from the house so I am always available to help my renters. You'll have a true Florida vacation in this home which is decorator furnished, backs up to a golf course and has large beautiful windows to let in the sunshine. I try to keep it equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation, including all paper products and cleaning supplies. There is never an extra charge for guests although I do like to know who is staying in my home.

This 2000 square feet plus, beautifully decorated home comes with a new 4 passenger gas Yamaha golf cart , five (5) cable TV's (one 60in. with DVR, 3D. There are 2 smart TV's and WIFI.) There is a Tempur-Pedic king-size bed in the master bedroom, and another king size bed in the guest bedroom and a day bed which can become a double bed or two single beds in the third bedroom. It is near Sumter Landing and the Arnold Palmer golf course and country club. Of course, your amenities pass includes access to all Village golf courses and activities. And this house is loaded with extras. 2 reclinerS to kick back in, all the dishes and glaswear ( red and white wine glasses, margarita glasses) and kitchen appliances (food processor, crock-pot, blender, rice cooker, Keurig coffee maker, electric mixer, rolling pin, rotisserie, roaster, etc) you could want, daily newspaper delivery, etc. The master bedroom even has a unique Starscape ceiling for special evenings. Plus this home is pet friendly (one pet, housebroken only, please). Imagine yourself enjoying breakfast in the morning or watching cable TV looking out at the fourth tee of Churchill Green golf course from the screened and windowed lanai on a true Florida vacation in this designer home, south of 466 in the Villages. The home is a very short walk to the neighborhood pool. I live a mile away from this home and this is the only monthly rental I own so I am almost always available to meet my renters needs. And the neighbors are very nice. this house really does have it all. Thank you.

About Karen Francis

I live one mile from the property, so I am available almost 24/7 for any problems that may arise. I love owning this house and having renters. My greatest pleasure is having renters say, " this house is beautiful in the pictures. It's even more beautiful now that we are here." I always want my renters to have a wonderful vacation and I think that is the reason that I have so many terrific reviews. I go out of my way to make sure my renters are happy in my home and in the Villages. I try to do anything I can do to help them.

Karen Francis purchased this house in 2005

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Would I stay here again? Absolutely, without a doubt! I'd never rented a home before. This property exceeded our expectations. This home is set up as if the owner herself lived there. I agree with the other 5 star reviews. This is the first vacation where when I went to bed at night I couldn't wait to wake up in the morning. The view was amazing. So nice to have coffee, and read the paper each morning with the view. One morning there were a couple rabbits out back. The home is very very clean, towels were large/soft/plentiful. We wished we lived there permanently :-). The neighborhood pool is right around the corner. Stores are nearby. Lots of restaurants nearby. Everyone we encountered was super nice.

My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at this lovely and comfortable home. This home is very well maintained and - CLEAN. What a delight. The kitchen is fully equipped, the living room has lots of seating with great views of the golf course. The bedrooms are spacious. The master bath suite has 2 large walk closets. This home is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. We definitely would stay there again.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is OMG, what a beautiful place and such a gracious hostess. Every amenity you can think of is in this gorgeous home and Karen, the owner, is just awesome. She was there to answer all of our questions and genuinely cared that we were having a great time. From the minute we walked into this home, we felt at home. Coffee on the patio overlooking the golf course, to dinner on the enclosed patio watching the Yankees game. I have been to many places and this was by far my favorite. Perfect.

Can't Wait To Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this house and we hope it isn't our last. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we felt as if we were home. Early morning coffee in the lanai would start our day, as we read the provided newspaper. Following a swim in the community pool, we would be off in the golf cart to participate in some of the many activities available at The Villages. Nights that we didn't eat at one of the many local restaurants, we prepared meals in the fully equipped kitchen. When our day of touring around ended, we would wind down with a movie or some TV at the house.

The house is beautifully laid out with an amazing amount of space. There were three in our group and we could have easily accommodated a couple more without issue. The owner thought of everything, including wonderful table displays to greet us when we arrived.

The Villages is becoming an annual vacation goal for us and it is primarily because of the location of the home in proximity to restaurants, shopping, activities and entertainment and the warmth and enthusiasm of the property owner.

We highly recommend this property.
