About Darlene and Steve Austin
Steve & Darlene live in Southern Indiana near Louisville Ky. We share four children and six grandchildren.
Darlene and Steve Austin purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Darlene and Steve Austin chose Santo Domingo
As golfers we have sought out retirement golf communities in warm weather. Nothing beats the Villages. The activities here are unlimited, weather is great, shopping never ends and restaurants are bountiful.
What makes this Villa unique
Our home is located on a quiet street with no through traffic. We love opening the glass sliders in the living room bringing the outside inside. The lanai is so relaxing with its large screened area and hot tub.

A Winning Choice
This was our first rental in The Villages and we could not have been happier! It was everything we expected. The villa is clean, comfortable with a lovely lani and enclosed backyard as represented in the photos. Our interaction with Darlene was wonderful, she was responsive, supportive with a clear and easy communication style. Darlene told us just to bring our clothes and everything we needed would be there and it was!
The location was ideal. We have friends in Lopez Legacy which made travel either way very convenient. Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter village centers were close via Mores Boulevard, the main road near the villa.
We were also pleased to be able to include our small dog because Steve and Darlene offer that option as well. This was a key decision making factor for us and we felt fortunate to have found such a lovely home and location which provided us this choice along with the enclosed yard.
We were there during a hurricane warning and Darlene called to check on us which was very thoughtful. Fortunately there was little rain and wind but the kindness was greatly appreciated.
It’s no surprise that we highly recommend this villa and that we would make this our first choice upon returning. We had family visit with us and they too agree should they return they would choose this rental.
Thank you very much Darlene and Steve!
Great Property / Rental !
This is by far the best property we have rented in the Villages and we have already booked it for next year. Darlene and Steve are fantastic to deal with. Everything was as they said and in some cases better than we expected. It is beautifully furnished and nice and bright. The location for us was perfect. Right between Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing. So easy to get to both squares in the good golf cart which was included. Great neighbourhood for walking and it's very quiet. We loved it.
Thanks Darlene and Steve for renting your place and looking after us. Can't wait to get back there.
We were here Aug 2014 and had a wonderful time; House was furnished beautifully; Weather was as expected; nice and hot! Walked through neighborhood; everyone friendly; Restaurants near by; We suggest Too Jays for great sandwiches and dinners; Enjoyed the hot tub and using the golf cart; This is senior citizen Disney World; something for everyone; Thanks to the owners for making us welcome in their rental home; Would recommend this home to friends or family;
Look no further...this is the answer -
Location, location, location...this clean, fully furnished home in The Villages is your answer as to where to stay during a visit to central Florida. The owners & property manager had everything ready for us as advertised. There was plenty of gas in the golf cart tank, the villa was spotless and there was a local newspaper delivered daily during our stay.
It did not take long to discover that any and all extracurricular activities where close by and golf cart accessible & out of e - there are two Publix nearby as well as the regional hospital, just in case you ever need it -
The oversized backyard is fenced in so that our dog was able to run & play at his leisure and safe and secure as well. Our stay was shortly after the "snowbirds" had left, so we had no problem with traffic or getting dining out occasionally. We did attend Katie Belle's one evening and got front row seats -
One of the highlights during our visit was attending several polo matches - we participated in the "divot stomp" and were rewarded with a glass of champagne - a couple of our matches qualified for the "Four in Four" and FREE beer. Everyone has a great time and with our optional "Resident" passes we received the discount ticket price
Golf is king (or queen depending on your persuasion) with over 30 nine hole executive courses and a dozen championship courses - There a multiple swimming pools nearby and this guest villa has its own hot tub - which is great after a couple of rounds of golf.
The WiFi was OK and there were enough TV channels to meet ones minimum requirements, but that's not why we came here for. Relax & Enjoy!
Activities are unlimited in this active adult retirement community. A golf cart is provided for your convenience. The occupant can take advantage of over 30 golf courses,numerous pools as well as national retail, restaurants and grocery stores just a golf cart ride away!
