Single lady that is originally from Germany. Good friends Tom and Neil manage my villa because I travel a lot...both of them live in the villages full time.
Juli purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Juli chose The Villages
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...This beautiful bright villa is in the perfect new area of the Villages. Big Cyprus Recreational center is a block away, Eisenhower Regional Recreation center is .8 miles away, 3 executive golf courses within 2 blocks, two of the newest Championship Country Clubs are about a mile away, the newest shopping center in the Villages is 2 blocks away and contains Grocery Store, gas station, medical center, many banks, Square One Burger, County Library, Chinese restaurant, UPS store, Walgreens, Nail and Hair salon, Subway, Chiropractor and many more. If you bring your dog with you then you will not have to leash them to potty because the yard is fenced in.

Location is great.
This unit is pet friendly and we pleased the cleanliness of the villa was 5 star.
Wonderful vacation in The Villages. Perfect location.
If you have never been to the Villages all I can say is you are missing out. There is so much to do that you have to make a schedule for all your options. Just to name a few are golf, swimming, water aerobics, pickle ball, tennis, dancing, and dining. This is a
very active community filled with such friendly people that you will have to pinch yourself.
The villa that we stayed in was perfect for us. It is clean and comfortable. You have everything you need for cooking a meal, grilling, doing your laundry, or just relaxing in your private patio. We had family come in for a few days to visit and there was plenty of room for all of us.
We loved the location because we could take walks in the morning and take the golf cart to Brownwood or Lake Sumter for activities.
Tom the manager was very helpful with making us comfortable and helping us with any issues. Juli the owner let us use the golf cart and that is a must have to get around and really have the true Villages experience.
We will definitely be back
A few glitches
First the home is lovely. Nicely located. Nicely decorated. And my husband wanted to steal the couch it was so comfy. Two adults. Two teens. And one senior stayed here. Plenty of room for all of us.
We have rented condos before and often received detailed check in/check out instructions. That didn't happen here. No instructions at all beyond how to get in.
So I called Tom to inquire about cleaning. What I was supposed to do before check out. (Towels? Bedclothes?) I had no idea. And the pool. There were no instructions at all on how to use the pools. I didn't see a map until 3 days in when I found it in a basket. So we were just a bit lost. Tom was responive and polite but did seem distracted.
When we finally went to use the pool on Friday it was a nightmare. First pool told us to go to second pool to get pass. Second pool wouldn't give us one. Said owner had to request it. In person. Ugh! Had to call Tom again. I was so frustrated by this process after spending so much and during a verrrrry hot August in Florida. Finally the lady at the club house gave us passes under her name I am sure just to silence my outburst.
Overall we still had a great visit. And this condo was reasonably priced with a lower deposit than some others. I just wish there had been better communication.
In general not a whole lot to do in the area so we will likely stay elsewhere next time.
A most pleasant holiday!
One can't go wrong when choosing The Villages for a holiday! This was our third stay in Pinellas. This villa met our expectations and positioned us close to the village pool as well as to shopping.
The villa was clean and orderly. Everything we needed worked well, coffee maker, blender, etc. It is as expected, Bartow Villas is a very quiet and private community. However its a different story about the pool..."we truly enjoyed every moment we spent there. You could relax and read a book or enjoy water aerobics or just laugh along with wonderful Pinellas neighbors!"
Clean everything there I needed in kitchen
Nicely decorated easy to clean before I left. Have vacuum coffee utensils spices extra garbage cans and we used golf cart to go everywhere in village. They had a villages map and every store we would need close by. We will be back.
Clean and Neat Home
Stayed for the month of March at this condo. Place was clean, neat and well stocked. Location within the Villages was good as this unit is located in the southern portion of the complex and very close to pools and the Brownwood Center. The southern Villages area is far less congested than the Spanish Springs & Sumpter Lake areas. I do have to say that we were not impressed with the Villages as a whole. We found it expensive, congested and overcrowded with long lines at all restaurants. We were also disappointed that there was a $5 / day charge to use the exercise rooms at the recreation centers. Additionally, if you plan on playing golf, you better bring your first born child to get a tee time. All that considered, if the Villages is where you want to vacation this home is a good choice for your stay.
Our Courtyard Villa is close to everything you need while staying here all with a mile.
