LOOK NO FURTHER FOR A FABULOUS RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this Villa for five weeks while we shopped for a home in The Villages. If this rental was for sale, we would be the new owners. It is conveniently located to restaurants, entertainment and shopping plazas when we felt like going out. If we were looking for some alone time with each other and eating/staying in, it was perfect for that too. It's located in a quiet neighborhood with a private, gorgeous yard (BBQ included) and we loved eating and relaxing in the screened lanai. As we both enjoy cooking, we were happy to be in a rental with a well stocked kitchen including sharp, not dull, knives for preparing meals. We travel often and this is the cleanest rental we have ever rented. The landlords, Helena and Frank, thought of everything including a breakfast basket for our first morning in the rental and a toiletries basket in the bathroom in case we had forgotten a needed item. Overall, a perfect rental.

GREAT VILLA, GREAT LOCATION AND GREAT LANDLORDS!

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely lucky to have been able to rent this villa due to a cancellation for the month of March. I can't say enough about how great our stay was! From the moment we were greeted by Helena (the owner), with a "welcome basket" and shown around the villa we knew we would love it! (It was wonderful not to have to go to the grocery store till the next day!) Everything was so CLEAN and PRETTY! All the wonderful comments made in previous reviews are accurate. We especially enjoyed the whole house sound system and time spent on the lanai. The beautiful landscaping and large yard were a real treat. The neighborhood is very nice and the location is great. We would definitely have rented this villa again if we hadn't purchased our own! Consider yourselves lucky if you can rent this one....it's a real find!

Outstanding rental!

  • 5 of 5
As a first time visitor to the Villages, I was in awe of this beautiful rental home. I must say that it was difficult to leave due to the beauty both inside and outside this property. The landlords presented themselves as kind friendly Villagers who have thought of everything a person would want even in their own home. I especially liked the Daily Sun delivery, the surround sound radio system, front porch, back lanai looking at palms, scenic neighborhood, 4 seater golf cart for transportation, welcome basket, courtyard privacy, and the close distance to Lake Sumter Landing, pools, and recreation centers. I hope to return to this rental soon. If you choose to rent here, you will be very pleased!

Life is Good

  • 5 of 5
I’ve had the honor and pleasure of renting this lovely home for the last six months. Not only is the home beautiful and fully-equipped but also Helena and Frank are excellent landlords. They have extended themselves to me in friendship in addition to answering every call for help quickly and efficiently. It’s evident they take great pride in this villa and truly care for their renters. The home is maintained beautifully and the grounds are spectacular. I can’t imagine there is a piece of kitchen equipment you’ll need that isn’t provided and all the linens and other amenities are top-quality. The home is wonderful; the neighbors are great; The Villages are a great experience; and, most of all, Helena and Frank now are friends forever. Thanks for the great experience!

Extraordinary handling of a sudden cancellation

  • 5 of 5
I reserved #375236 May 1-16, 2013, all fees paid and all paperwork had been completed. Unfortunately, a sudden family illness prevented me from taking advantage of this beautiful home. I notified the owner of my situation and she was most gracious and understanding. Without hesitation, she refunded my rent and fees in full. Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting the owner personally, she was classy, honest, and kept her word---a rare find in these days. It was an honor doing business with her and I hope we have an opportunity to meet in the future.
