About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleep 4

When you're ready for recreation, this courtyard villa in the Village of St. James couldn't be more convenient:

Just across St. Charles Place, a three-minute walk, is the Sterling Heights recreation center, where you'll find the family pool plus tennis, pickleball, bocci, shuffleboard, billiards, and a card room.

Right next to Sterling Heights is the starter shack for two executive golf courses.
A block and a half down St. Charles Place, a five-minute walk, is the neighborhood (adult) pool, bocci and shuffleboard courts, and a horseshoe pit.

There are nine more executive and three championship golf courses within 10 minutes by golf cart.

Seabreeze regional recreational center with Sports Pool and more pickleball, tennis, paddle tennis, and sand volleyball courts, is within 5 minutes by golf cart.

Moreover, the Village of St. James is conveniently located about halfway between Market Square in Lake Sumter Landing and the new Paddock Square in Brownwood. Both squares have nightly free entertainment and are situated in the midst of restaurants and retail stores. Brownwood's Saturday morning farmers' market is an added bonus.

And when you're ready to relax, come back to our villa with its 1400 sq ft of conditioned space, tastefully furnished by professional decorators, built and first occupied in 2012.

The villa is non-smoking and pet-friendly.
The master bedroom has a king bed, flat screen TV, and the master bath has a walk-in tiled shower and walk-in closet.

There is a guest bedroom with queen bed and a third bedroom set up as an office, with desk, chair, and printer. Bring your own computer and check in to the wifi.

The living room has a flat-screen TV and wireless-ready BluRay DVD player, so you can easily access your Netflix, Pandora, or other entertainment accounts.

Comcast provides cable television programming and a 25 MB internet connection with free HBO and Streampix.

The comfortably-furnished 150 sq ft screened lanai with “birdcage” offers an ideal space to sip your morning coffee or evening libation. It opens to the enclosed courtyard, which provides privacy and allows you to let your puppy out, off leash, without worry.

The kitchen comes fully-equipped with glassware, dishes, flat wear, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender (for mixology!)and utensils. Appliances include stove, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, and microwave. The laundry room is inside, unlike many other villas.

Also included is a full complement of linens, towels, blankets, cleaning supplies and equipment.

The rental rates shown include a 2-seat gas golf cart which is “Villages-ready,” meaning goes 20 mph and has drop-down curtains and a bag cover for wind and rain protection. A set of ladies' and men's golf clubs are included.
