Why Jeff McNiece chose Virginia Trace

Location, location, location! Being able to take a short walk and be in the heart of all the Lake Sumter Landing activities is incredible. Being able to drive a car or golf cart to the same activities is nice, but having the option to walk is fantastic. Plus 5 minutes into the walk, you are at the Community Center with swimming, dog walk, horse shoes, tennis, pickleball, and shuffleboard. Of course, all 38 Executive golf courses and 13 Championship courses are only a short golf cart ride away is 'icing on the cake'.

Lastly, this property is and always has been a smoke-free and pet-free home, so no need to worry about these allergies.

What makes this house unique

Being so close to Lake Sumter Landing Market Square and the Recreational Centers is just incredible. Plus, we're centrally located to get to the other Squares or anywhere else in The Villages.

The bedrooms are large and comfortable. Kitchen has all the cooking supplies needed. We enjoyed having coffee on the screened in porch. Great central location for pool, activities, shopping and of course the square.

Nice home very close to Lake Sumter Landing

  • 5 of 5

The communication from Jeff was spot-on, and the house itself was immaculate. The location is about a 1.5 mile walk/bike ride/golf cart ride to Lake Sumter Landing, which was very pleasant. Jeff provided maps and the local paper to help you stay in touch and make the most of the Villages. While no golf cart is provided as part of the rental, he facilitated a painless rental from a local firm that provided the cart directly in the garage before our arrival.

Nice house with a good location in the Villages.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. I had no problems. The central location in The Villages was a great feature. I played golf at 11 different executive golf courses (par 3s) and being at a central location made it easier to get to them. Easy access to Lake Sumter Landing was nice also.
