We really enjoyed staying in your El Cortez home again. It is so comfortable and close to many places where we like to go. We will certainly be in touch if we plan another vacation next year in The Villages. We just love it there!!

Outstanding Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything we read about and photos we saw in the listing was exactly what we hoped for and was exactly what we enjoyed during our three week vacation on Cortez Ave. in The Villages. When we arrived, we thought we had walked into an HGTV staged home. The grounds, décor, and amenities included everything we could have imagined. The home was equipped with every convenience and appliances needed for a wonderful stay. When we needed to contact the owner for a few questions, he was always available and helpful. The location of the home and the use of the GEM cart were perfect for visiting the town center with its many attractions, stores, and restaurants, as well as going to the nearby pool, recreation center, and grocery shopping. The Villages and this wonderful rental site provided our best vacation ever! We have already recommended it to our friends and relatives and hope to return there ourselves next year.
