We named our home 'Our Village Gem 2' because it's our second Villa with incredible location, elegant décor and charm in the heart of The Villages, just a short stroll from The Lake Sumter Town Square, with restaurants and entertainment galore. The pools and recreation center are just a short cart ride away.

FREE golf, access to all the facilities and pools and billiards, tennis, pickle ball, shuffle board, horse shoes, bocce ball, petanque, polo fields, baseball fields, basketball courts, free wifi in all those facilities as well as the home, entertainment every night in the town squares, croquet fields - and the equipment for all the sports.

And don’t forget that the golf is free on any of the 32 Executive Golf Courses! Or pay a small premium and play one of the 12 Country Club Championship Courses such as The Arnold Palmer or Nancy Lopez Course.


There are great restaurants around the area that we can highly recommend. Try any of the Country Clubs that often have music or entertainment as well.

We also enjoy walking to the Town Square or taking the golf cart where a dozen or so restaurants are located, many with outdoor eating. You’ll be spoiled for choice!

And most of all we love going to the Town Squares from 5-9pm for the free entertainment and dancing on the Square. They serve 2 for 1 beer and wine at a certain time each night and supply chairs for you to enjoy the music!

The Lake Sumter Square is easily accessible by foot or golf cart! It’s amazing to see so many golf carts which people use instead of their car. It’s a fun way to take advantage of Florida’s wonderful warm weather.

If you want to eat in, there is a Winn-Dixie market conveniently located on the corner of Stillwater and Morse, so you will never run out of essentials.


The home is on a quiet street in Caroline adjacent to Lake Sumter Landing Town Square. In the Master Bedroom there is a King Bed, a second bedroom with a Queen Bed. In addition, there is a comfortable sofa bed in the study when you need extra guest sleeping space. All linens, sheets and towels are supplied.

You’ll have cookware and china in the kitchen and dining areas, and all linens and towels freshly laundered for your use.

You might want to take advantage of The Villages Transport that will pick up up at the Orlando Airport for a small fee and deliver you back again at the end of your stay. Many visitors to the Villages feel that there is really no need for a car, as your golf carts can take you most places.

Check in is normally 3 pm, and check out 11 AM. However early check in can be accommodated if the home is available before 3pm.

We'll try to do all we can to make your stay enjoyable. We’re world travelers ourselves, and know how nice it is to have friendly, helpful landlords, even on short term stays.

And don’t forget the activities! As a renter you can partake of the 2000 clubs – yes 2000 – covering every imaginable interest, sport or art!

                                                            The Villages is so much fun for the whole family! This property is so close to the town square and our kids loved taking the golf cart to "town" every night to check out the music, restaurants, and shopping. We were in town for a volleyball tournament In Tavares and instead of sitting around a hotel after games it was great to stretch out and have fun stuff to do. This property is furnished and decorated very nice. The kids thought the sofa bed was comfy, and the large TVs and Roku was just like being home. The owners provided us with all he info we needed to maximize our stay. Next time we are in town for volleyball, we will definitely stay again!
