Designer concrete Courtyard

The Courtyard Villa has been constantly updated and made more beautiful with every passing year.

The Plantation Shutters add to the overall beauty of this villa. Dimmer switches offer ambiance in the evening Ceiling fans (along with air conditioning) are in every room keeping it cool during the day.

The pathway through the gate and into the courtyard offers a designer concrete that has an attractive cobblestone appearance-very quaint and charming. In the back of the courtyard is a table and umbrella with 6 chairs-perfect for that courtyard BBQ on the grill; also, the courtyard is illuminated with beautiful outdoor lighting.

The living room, kitchen and dining room all share a vaulted ceiling which creates a very open and spacious area.

The kitchen has beautiful newly installed Quartz Counter tops, and is equipped with everything you could possibly think of. There's even a crock pot for those days when you want to go play golf and come home to a great dinner.

There is a separate inside laundry room with a full size washer/dryer. Convenient storage cabinets are above the washer/dryer; also, there is a utility sink. Clothing may be hung in the laundry room, and a pocket door may be closed if one wishes to do so.

The dining room seats 4 with the option to expand the table with inserts and extra folding chairs. Off the living room is a screened in lanai with 2 rocking chairs – great for peaceful reflection.

The Master Bedroom suite has a very comfortable king size bed-new in 2015. It is a Sealy Profile-the #1 choice of Consumer Reports. The bedroom has a down comforter, 2 sets of linens and a soft blanket for additional warmth. Feel at home with the large walk-in closet and private bathroom. From the bedroom, you also have direct access to the screened lanai and outdoor courtyard.

The Guest Bedroom has a queen size bed with a down comforter and 2 sets of high quality linens. The bedspread/pillows are new in 2015. The bathroom is right outside the guest bedroom and has a tub as well as a shower. The nicest feature of this bedroom is a pocket door that separates the bedroom and bathroom away from the living room. Guests have their privacy while reducing any noise from the living room.

The 3rd Bedroom is an office/den. The room is very inviting with a DVR/HD TV, a desk & chairs - perfect for curling up with a great book. High speed internet is also provided.

The Courtyard Villa is 1/2 mile from Havana Country Club, which offers an excellent wine list along with great food/service; also, if you choose to dine outside, you overlook a beautiful golf course. The villa is very close to Lake Sumter Landing where you have an endless selection of places to eat, an outstanding movie theater, shopping, and nightly entertainment. There are 3 town squares in The Villages, and this location is right in the middle!!

The Sharon Performing Art Center is approximately 5 miles.

For your at-home entertainment, enjoy the HDTV along with DVR to record your shows while you are out having fun! There are two large flat screen Samsung TV's with HDTV/DVR, offering music, sports , free movies, and numerous other great channels to choose from. Also, there is a 22' Vizio TV in the Master Bedroom (Cable Only).

NO pets and no smoking, please.

About The Owner

I have lived in the area for most of my life, and from the time that I was a child, I had the privilege of watching The Villages grow and prosper. I am so glad that I made the decision to live in The Villages, as well as to own the lovely villa which I am offering to you. If you decide that my villa is the perfect place for you to rent, I sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay and fall in love with it just as I did. There's so much to see and do in The Villages...or, relax and do nothing! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose The Villages

You'll find that the location of my Villa is extremely convenient to anything and everything that you may want to see and do. At the same time, you'll enjoy a nice and relaxing atmosphere that is off the beaten path.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa is all about location! It is centrally located, and close to the Performing Arts Theater, Movie Theaters, Restaurants and Shopping. While location is paramount, the courtyard in this villa is outstanding-right in the middle of 3 town squares! The outdoor lighting and cobblestone appearance is truly beautiful.

If you have the opportunity to rent this villa, DO IT ! From the top-of-the-line appliances to the Calphalon pots and pans to the numerous and fluffy towels to the outside electric grill to the tastefully appointed furnishings, our month spent in this villa was everything and more than we could have hoped for. It really added a very special feeling to our vacation to come "home" to such comfort and beauty every day. We would stay here again in a minute !

Perfect Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely villa during Feb. & March. It was beautifully decorated, had new appliances, & the kitchen was well equipped with pots and pans, utensils, and small appliances. The lanai and enclosed courtyard were attractive, quiet and private. There were three tvs and wifi, and the furniture was attractive, clean and comfortable. The villa was exceptionally clean and conveniently located between Sumter and Brownwood squares. The owner was very responsive and we would love to stay in this property again.

We enjoyed our stay so much last November 2014 that we returned for 3 more weeks in November 2015. We feel very much at home here. The villa is beautifully appointed with many high end finishes and well maintained. Sharon has been delightful to work with and to know. She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and boy, did we!! We took advantage of the many activities available such as the new theater the Sharon, movies, and sports such as tennis, golf, pickleball, and paddleball. We played every day. The villa location is very convenient to shopping and all sorts of restaurants. You will not be disappointed in any way if you rent this place.

This is a perfect Villa for our 14 day stay over Christmas break at The Villages! It IS centrally located as you can see by the map right off Odell Drive. We exclusively used the golf cart to get around and thus, the Villa location is convenient to all golf courses, pools, fishing lakes, 3 Town Squares, grocery stores, gas station, restaurants, driving range, etc. Some villas have golf carts, this one does not. However, Sharon was instrumental in helping us obtain one from a reliable company, very reasonably priced and delivered right to the driveway, which Sharon placed it in the garage for us and available upon our arrival! The Villa has all the amenities one has at home and Sharon had just replaced all kitchen appliances with brand new stainless steel, which added such a modern flair to her beautiful Villa home. The lanai and the courtyard is the best place to sit and relax each morning, reading The Villages newspaper and having our coffee! This Villa was so peaceful and serene and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you Sharon! We will return asap!
