About Tim Carnicom

We finally decided we were tired of shoveling the snow in Michigan and headed south for some warmth and sunshine.

Tim Carnicom purchased this house in 2006

Why Tim Carnicom chose The Villages

I first saw The Villages in an AARP magazine in 2001. It didn't take me long to make a visit to see what the talk was all about. We bought our first home here in 2004 and sold and bought our second and present home here in 2006. We chose our current location not only because of the beautiful home and neighborhood, but mostly because of the perfect central location. We are only about 1 minute to the Caroline Neighborhood pool and 3 minutes to Coconut Cove Recreation Center where you can take the Grandkids swimming. We are also about as close to Lake Sumter Landing Market Square as you can get and about the same distance to Mallory Hill Country Club.

What makes this house unique

When you stay at our home in The Villages you have the same privileges to all the amenities as I have. Golf, Swim, Shop, Eat, Pickle Ball, Bocci Ball, and so much more including everything else The Villages has to offer. Our home is tastefully decorated with everything you will need for a comfortable stay, including the 4 passenger golf cart. Please read our Traveler Reviews and check out our Calendar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved renting this home!! It has all the amenities that are needed for a comfortable home and is very homey. We have rented numerous times in The Villages and this has been our best experience. FYI - we love The Villages and plan on moving down there next Spring.

Beautiful Home

My husband and I stayed at this home for 2 weeks this October. The home is gorgeous with comfy furnishings and anything you could want in a home. It is extremely clean.The location is perfect and very close to Sumter easy golfcart ride. Tim is so helpful with any information you may need for the home and The Villages. I will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our third visit to your picture perfect home. You have provided everything anyone could want or need for a wonderful vacation. The location is very convenient to Lake Sumter for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The amenities (golf cart with Golf Cart Aide, bikes, daily newspaper, etc.) added a special touch to our visit. Can hardly wait for our next vacation.

Tim - want to thank you for allowing Joyce & myself to stay in your beautiful home. It was everything you had promised. This was my third trip to The Villages and the best as we got to stay a whole week. Everything so convenient with driving the golf cart. All the entertainment every night was great. Would love to return and stay at your beautiful home in the future. All we had to furnish was our food and enjoying the fun and friendly The Villages.

Best Rental...Best Owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have completed our second year of "snow birding" for 2.5 months at Tim's spectacular Home. We have been wintering in Florida for 5 years and have found nothing to compare to this rental. Tim is renting "his" home, not just another rental property. As such you will find this rental COMPLETLY furnish to every detail. Very comfortable and feels like home. But the real benefit of renting this home is you are dealing with the owner, not a management company...who is quickly available should you have a problem. Can't wait to return Tim! Ron & Sue

Wonderful rental

Thanks again, Tim, for everything you have done for us the past two months. The time flew by so quickly. I will highly recommend your place to anyone. Your house is a delightful place to stay. So convenient and accommodating. Both of us and our guests thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We look forward to expanding our friendship for many years to come. Charlie and Barb

Owner's Response: Thanks Charlie & Barb for taking such good care of my home. I'm always sad to lose a great tenant but I'm even more excited for you with your new home purchase and becoming true Villagers. It's funny, I always tell my tenants to bring their checkbook cause this place is addicting and they will probably buy a home while they are here and I guess you took my advice. Congratulations and I look forward to our friendship, Tim
