About John and Linda Mason

John and Linda met in The Villages and we got married on 12/12/12. We love showing visitors this wonderful active community. We take pride in our home and the community we found to retire in.

John and Linda Mason purchased this house in 2016

Why John and Linda Mason chose The Villages

This property is in a beautiful location with easy access to local pools, recreation activities, shopping, golf, tennis, pickle ball, restaurants, two of the three squares, and all the wonderful opportunities available in The Villages.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite place in our home is sitting on the lanai and looking out at the quiet neighborhood. It is so peaceful. Our renters have told us that the bed in the master bedroom is fantastic to sleep on and the new voice activated remote is a treat to use. They also love the new slate appliances and the Floridian Decor.

5 stars Great: Hosts, Vacation Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We received first class service from John and Linda. They showed us how to

get around the villages. Their vacation home was immaculate with everything

that we needed. We enjoyed having a tv in the livingroom and the bedroom.

We stayed for 3 weeks with the neighbors greeting us each morning. Thanks for the

gulf cart which was filled with gas. John and Linda told us to call them immediately

if there were any concerns.( We had no concerns ) The villages has so many activites

and the residents are very kind. This is a Disneyland for adults. John and Linda treated

us as their best friends. Next year this will be the vacation home we will be returning to.

John and Linda we wish both of you All The Best! Gerri and Tony

Fabulous home, amazing location, incredible hosts...

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 weeks in this beautiful home and enjoyed every minute. It was spotlessly clean and a real home from home with stylish modern furnishings and all modern appliances. The only thing missing was a kettle for English tea but that turned up brand new in a box the next day after the owners realised we needed one.

Location wise it was perfect. Being approximately halfway between the two main town squares of Lake Sumter Landing and Spanish Springs made it easy to visit either town square for entertainment etc. Pools, shopping, country clubs, recreation centres and restaurants were only minutes away by the golf cart which was provided. The lovely family pool of Rio Grande was only 4 minutes away and we used this almost every day.

The owners, John and Linda, were very welcoming and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and they took the time to make sure we had everything we needed and that we had a great vacation. Honestly, one of the nicest couples you could meet. They were kind, generous and very thoughtful.

Overall, a fantastic vacation in a beautiful home surrounded by nice people. I highly recommend this property to all, to couples, singles and families.

We are looking forward to returning to this property again next year.
