About Leslie Dyer

We currently live in Marietta, Georgia outside of Atlanta and are both 'snow birds' originally from Michigan. We were visiting an old friend that lives in The Villages and fell in love in about one minute! But, alas, we are still a bit too young yet to retire and live there permanently.

Leslie Dyer purchased this villa in 2010

Why Leslie Dyer chose The Villages

We also fell in love with this house the minute we saw it due to both its location and how well and tastefully yet 'liveable' it is appointed. The people we purchased it from were moving back to England, taking nothing but personal pictures, so we bought it from them lock, stock, and barrel. They (and we) kept the place in immaculate condition and obvious TLC.

What makes this villa unique

The house has an open floor plan and attached garage, the screened porch is fantastic to enjoy a cocktail on in the evening, and the Master Bedroom is large with a walk in closet.

Location. Location. Location.

During our visit and prior to purchase we discovered that Lynnhaven is 'the spot to be'' as most everything is close to Lynnhaven.

Publix , Walgreens, Walmart, Restaurants and Banks are close. Family pool at the Churchill Rec. Center is close. Adult pool, and Executive Golf Courses are close. And Lake Sumter Landing is only 10 minutes away.

#1 Place To Rent In The Villages

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Leslie and Gary's villa for almost 3 months while our new house was being built in Jacksonville, FL, and have loved every minute of it. The villa is beautifully decorated and has every convenience that you could ask for.

The villa is centrally located and is in one of the better areas of the Villages giving you easy golf cart access to shopping, restaurants and Sumter Square. The neighbors are all very friendly and we have made so many friends either in the pool or on the golf course.

We will probably rent again from Leslie & Gary and if you want a great place to stay in the Villages this to me is the #1 spot to be. You will not find a better villa or two better people to work with then Leslie & Gary

Head and Shoulders Above It's Competition

  • 5 of 5

I rented Leslie and Gary's place for a month to explore The Villages. During the period, I looked at many other 2-bedroom places and found theirs to be very livable, more comfortably decorated, centrally located and a better value than any of the other homes I looked at.

Plus, Gary and Leslie are an absolute joy to work with - very responsive and supportive!

I highly recommend this rental.

Great Property Awesome Owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented this property for one year from Leslie and Gary, and all that I can say is thank you for a wonderful experience! The neighbors are very nice and the property has everything you could need, including a cd player on the golf cart! In short, if it is not in this villa, you won't need it to enjoy your stay. The location is superb for living in The Villages, as almost everything is within a 5-10 minute golf cart drive. If there is ever an issue with the property, it will be resolved most likely within a few hours! You will NOT be disappointed with anything at this property.

Thanks for the great stay!

Beautifully Decorated, Bright and Airy and Convient To Everything

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the front door we were amazed at how beautiful this home is. It appears to be professionally decorated with bright, vivid and perfectly selected accessories. The house was spotless, the furnishings were excellent and whenever we needed something, it was there. (Computer paper, paper clips, pencils, wine bottle opener, etc) The 4 person golf cart looks like new and has a tremendous stereo system to entertain you while you make the 5 minute ride to the pool or golf course or the 10 minute ride to the Publix Grocery, CVS Pharmacy or the numerous restaurants just a short golf cart ride away. The owners are extremely responsive and the neighbors are very friendly and helpful. I would Highly Recommend this property to anybody who wants to really enjoy everything The Villages has to offer.
