TERRIFIC VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Villages. The house was beautiful and immaculate. The owner left excellent instructions for the care of the home. The golf car made it easy to get around. There is so much to do in this complex. Plenty of entertainment, activities and restaurants. It was like being on a cruise without being on the water. We would definitely recommend this rental.

SIX WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful 6 weeks at this beautiful house. Everything we wanted was provided for. The house was clean and just as the photos showed. We had a couple of questions when we arrived and the owners were very helpful. We had use of a golf cart which is a MUST in the villages. There are few places you cannot go with a cart. The golfing was great-to think we were going to leave the clubs home because we do not golf that well. It seems that most people are in the same boat and are out to have a good time. The nightly entertainment is geared at our age level-lots of classics. We went to a couple of local State Parks and canoed with the gators and saw many underwater springs. This is a must place to go and we could not have had a better or more beautiful house to stay in. I have told my neighbors here that this is THE place to stay. Thank you again Jerry & Renee for letting us rent your place. WE had a Great time....

OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was in excellent condition and well equipped. We particularly appreciated using the Golf Cart.
I would recommend that there be more floor lamps in the living area as the house seemed dark with only one lamp.
