The Villages

  • 5 of 5

The location is the best, easy to get around in a golf cart or using your car. The house was perfect for my needs. I was there in one of the coolest January's in a long time, but I'm from Michigan and the weather in Michigan was around zero. If you get some time to travel make this location one of your destination it is a wonderful place to be.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very nice and accommodating. The villa was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have access to a golf cart-we made good use of it traveling about. We would definitely stay here again.
