Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We fell in love with Florida since our first visit in 1987 and returned every year since then. In 2008 we finaly decided to buy a home in Inverness and make it our place to relax.
Why the Owner Chose Inverness, FL, USA:
Inverness is a very nice little town in central Florida amidst beautiful nature. You don't have the hustle and bustle of the big cities and tourist centers but it is yet only an hours drive from the theme parks in Orlando or the beautifull beaches at the gulf of Mexico. There are numerous golf courses in and around Inverness, a bike trail, fantastic fishing...
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:

This represents a saving of $25 per day compared to the average charge.
