Excellent, an enjoyable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was very clean and nicely furnished. The golf cart ran flawless, and we were able to golf over 10 times on 7 courses during the month of January. I would fully recommend staying at Chuck and Diane’s Villa for at least a month, so that you can fully learn all of the wonderful things to do at The Villages.

Immaculate property and outstanding hosts! Can't wait to return.

  • 5 of 5

Spent the months of February through April 2017 at this property. The Carters are outstanding hosts and the property was very clean and had everything we needed . There were a few things we requested and the Carters were very quick to respond. Having a golf cart available made exploring The Villages a fun adventure. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is interested in visiting The Villages. We looked at other properties to rent for next year but are returning to this property because of the Carters who were not only our landlords but became our friends as well.

We spent the month of April 2015 in this villa in The Villages. This property is just perfect. Everything that we needed for the month was provided. Chuck and Dianne are great hosts. This villa is located in a great area, right between Lake Sumter Landing Square and Brownwood Paddock Square, where we enjoyed many fun evenings of listening to live music and dancing. We recommend this villa highly!

When we arrived at The Villages Chuck Carter met us and we followed him to the Sumter Town Square where we signed in to get our residents passes. He was so helpful in making sure all of our questions were answered about how to best enjoy our stay. The Villa was lovely and was equipped very well for our stay. The location of the villa was perfect because of it being close to so many activities.

We will rent with the Carters on our next visit to The Villages!

Couln't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with every aspect of this home. It is comfortably furnished and equipped and in a very quiet area. It is so close to all activities.

We were given detailed explanations of the amenities and the procedures which made it easy for us to settle in and enjoy.

The home is clean and well taken care of and the owner is readily available if needed.

I would recommend this place without question and would return there myself when considering The Villages.
