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.

                                                              Villa worth staying for the month!!

                                                              Karen P.Cutchogue, New York

                                                              My husband and I rented this villa for the month of January. Although the weather was cold, the villa was warm and inviting!! It was pet friendly so that's why we booked this place. The villa had 2 bedrooms and an office. The master suite had a very comfortable king size bed. The master bath had a tile shower and large closet with many hangers provided. Sheets and towels were included with this rental. There are three t.v.'s in this unit. The living room has a very large smart tv and also a smart flat screen tv in the master bedroom. I know there is also a t.v. in the guest room but we never went in that room.

                                                              The back yard was enclosed with a small area of grass and bushes on the side. The dogs were very happy here. We have two Havanese! The kitchen was well equipped so I was able to prepare meals some of the time.

                                                              The villa came with a golf cart. Across the street was the Sterling Heights recreation center. This center offered pickle ball and other activities. For the golfer (my husband) there are 4 executive golf courses very close by.

                                                              The owners were responsive when I couldn't figure out how to get the stove to work and also the smart t.v. There is a binder with instructions for almost everything. I would recommend this villa to anyone interested in exploring the Villages. It's ideally located between the villages of Brownwood Paddock and Lake Sumter Landing.
