Beautiful villa, within the village of Pinehurst, conveniently located between the 2 most exclusive gated communities in Pinehurst; Fairwoods on 7 and CCNC ( Country Club of North Carolina). The icing on the cake is that the villa, is in a villa complex with access to the Lawn and Tennis Club of North Carolina. The club has a pool, 6 tennis courts and and a great tennis Pro. The guests have access to the pool, and the excellent clay courts and can take 1 hour tennis lessons with a Pro that will charge much more in another location. My son took a lesson and was able to get very valuable pointers to improve his back hand and his serve. The Pro is very didactic, patient and will be excellent for beginners, older adults and children.These facilities are located 1 1/2 blocks from the villa. To play golf, the location is great, take your pick! The villa was described accurately, was impeccably clean, was outfitted with linens, towels, cleaning supplies, paper goods, fully stocked kitchen and TVs on master bedroom, loft bedroom and living room. Also, it has a very good collection of movies and reading material as well as excellent WI-Fi. It has a 2 car garage and a fenced patio with chairs, Grill and fire pit. It is in a very quiet spot and yet 3 to 5 minutes to shopping, such as, Harris Teeter, Wal-Mart, Fresh Market, Food Lion, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl's, Stein Mart, Talbot's and Belk, as well as to numerous chain restaurants and fine dinning. Downtown Southern Pines is about 8 minutes away with amazing local restaurants and quirky boutique shopping. The center of the village of Pinehurst is about 2 minutes away. The villa, when you compare it to other properties and hotels in the area, is definitively a budget friendly and a more comfortable and enjoyable stay. I will highly recommend it, especially if you are traveling with family and children. Golfing groups will also feel very comfortable. The quality of your vacation in Pinehurst will improve significantly if you stay there. Kevin, the owner/manger was a pleasure to work with and responded very quickly and thoroughly answer all our questions. Great customer service!
