About the property

House-Ranch, 2BD/2BA + Sunroom, (Sleeps 2-4),small dogs considered, no cats.

The Villages is one of the premier, gated, adult communities in sunny Florida. It has been highlighted on National TV during major golf tournaments, and in magazines such as Reader's Digest, AARP, etc. There are so many activities (500 per week) that you can find almost anything to your liking. If you just want to relax, the community has lakes, many beautiful vistas, nature preserves, and the only walking path in The Villages is near our home. If you want to go to the beach it is only about an hour to Daytona Beach and 1.3 hours to Clearwater. Go to the beach in the morning and come back in the evening. Disney World is only 1.2 hours away... Go yourself or take the grandkids.

The location of our rental home is particularly advantageous because of its proximity to golf courses, practice greens, tennis clubs, recreation centers, country clubs, and shopping. We have a large corner lot with a private back yard such that you aren't looking into someone else's lanai when you want privacy.

The Mulberry Grove shopping center with a grocery store, restaurants, and department stores is not far away. All these can be visited with the included custom Golf Cart. There are golf cart paths throughout the Villages that allow your to travel by this means if you should choose.

There are a few extras at our home. We have a Nintindo Wii that you can have fun with and exercise along with Wii games.

We have Sony speakers that accept your iPad/ iPhone so you can play your own playlist.

Our home in The Villages is a delightful place that you will really enjoy!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great way to sample The Villages life style for a couple weeks. We felt like part of the neighborhood with resident privileges to all that The Villages has to offer and golf cart access to it all.

The owner, Russ, was very helpful and responsive in the process start-to-finish. The property was exactly as advertised on the site. We felt right at home with everything we needed. We would highly recommend this property.

A nice quiet neighborhood. Easy access to Mulberry shopping. Had several glitches (Mailbox key, and refrigerator) during the 2 months we were there. The owner was VERY helpful. We enjoyed ourselves.

Russ' home is well maintained and very well supplied with everything for your stay. He even includes golf clubs and balls, tennis and pickleball racquets and balls along with weights for exercising and floats for the pool and the four seat gas golf cart. Well furnished too and Russ is always available for questions. Would recommend this home for your stay.

I can only repeat what others have said. Russ is very thorough and there were no surprises. I plan on using his home again.

A comfortable home that offers all you need for a perfect holliday at the Villages.

  • 4 of 5

This home is located in the upper area of the Villages, it offers a very peaceful environment with easy access to Golf, pools, and Commerce. The house is well equipped and very comfortable with all you need. Our experience dealing with Russell was excellent, Russell went out of his way to make our stay perfect and provide guidance to ensure we had a great experience. This was our first visit to the Villages and I can't find one thing I would change and I would not hesitate in recommending it.
