About Bob Faucett

Owners Bob & Carol Ann live next door to their rental in an identical floor plan home. We moved to The Villages in 2005 and absolutely love the lifestyle provided here. We are happy to share the lifestyle and make recommendations for great eating places and other activities. When we are not in The Villages, our next door neighbor on the other side takes care of both of our homes and our guests.

Bob Faucett purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Faucett chose Chatham

Living next door makes management of our rental home simple and convenient.

What makes this house unique

What makes Southland such a great spot is the delightful open floor plan inside and the spacious yard outside unlike most Villages homes that have neighbors completely surrounding them. The quiet cul de sac in front and the farm in the rear affords a wonderful quiet atmosphere.

Property was clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable and had everything in it that we needed for our stay. We enjoyed using and going places in the golf cart and we especially enjoyed dinners at the country clubs. Bob the owner was very nice and made sure that everything was in order and we had what we needed. We would definitely use this again for another visit to the villages.

Quiete neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

The owners live next door and were very nice. The home needs a total make over. The linens and kitchen items were a hodge podge of yard sale items. The living room furniture was way to big for the small space which made it very overcrowded. The table on the lanai had a broken leg and I had to clean the lanai as it probably hadn't been swept in months. Some of the throw pillows on the lounges were moldy. The neighborhood is quiet, however.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Quite surprised after 100% 5 star reviews for past 4 years and did not hear any of these comments during 2 month stay some of which could have easily been addressed during the stay as were a number of other minor issues. While some linens may be dated and will be carefully reviewed and updated if necessary rest assured there is nothing in our home that is "yard sale"!

The Villages

  • 4 of 5

The house contained everything needed and was clean and bright. However, it is difficult to go from place to place unless you live there. The golf cart is a nice feature, but my wife would not drive it. I became ill and cannot give an honest assessment of our stay.

"Home away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home in the Villages. The house was up to date, immaculate and fully furnished with beautiful decor and nice accents on the walls. The kitchen was fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, silverware, dish towels, just about anything you need to cook a meal.

We were four adults traveling together and the two bedrooms had plenty of room and comfortable beds. It was especially nice to have 2 full size bathrooms equipped with towels.

The booking was very easy and the owner greeted us upon arrival and told us to go right in.

From check-in to check-out we were highly impressed. We highly recommend this rental.

Thank You Bob,

Exceptional Rental

  • 5 of 5

Since travelling to the Villages this has been a most rewarding experience at Southland. Well kept and maintained by the owner with everything you could possibly need in the home. The owner was more than attentive to our needs and was extremely professional. The golf cart performed very well which is a must in the Villages. A great BBQ was used often and we spent lovely evenings in the liani. Highly recommended.
