The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Great central location and very friendly neighbors. We called Down Home Property Mgt twice, dishwasher and disposal, and a service person was sent out next day on both. Home was comfortable, but furniture (sofa and both beds) and carpet are showing age. We would have rented same home for next year but were not ready to comit after being there only 2 weeks when Mgt called to see if we were interested. By end of Feb the home was taken for next year. Mgt did not return our call for help finding another villa and we found a rental by owner.
My husband and I stayed in this villa during the month of February 2014. This was our first visit to The Villages, so we were happy to find a place for the month. We were appreciative that we could move in on the last day of January as we had just returned from a cruise on Jan 31.
There are many positives about the villa, but our first impression on our first night was that the master bed was so uncomfortable that we had to move into the guest room for the duration of our visit. We understand that the rental agency must get the permission from the owner to make such a major change, but we never heard back about whether or not a different mattress was possible, even for next year.
Some positive mentions are for the new furniture in the bedrooms, living room, and dining room, plus a nice table and chairs on the patio. When I asked for a blender, a new one was purchased and delivered the next day. The towels were nice and big, and the appliances were new, including the washer and dryer, refrigerator, and stove. The bathrooms were nice although more towel bars would be helpful, especially in the master bath. Big walk-in closet! The electric grill on the patio did not have electric power, so someone came out and fixed the problem in a timely manner. There is an electric golf cart provided, certainly a nice feature as one is necessary.
There was a dark stain shaped like a footprint next to the dining room table. We were surprised that no one made an effort to come and remove it even though we mentioned it to the woman who gave us the key on our first day. It also would have been helpful to have advance notice that there is no mailbox at the villa and that you may have to arrange to pick up mail at a local pack and ship facility. This failure caused us a great deal of stress as we had already arranged to have our mail shipped from home to the villa weekly. It's a service from USPS that we pay for.
The Village of Hadley is convenient to the Publix supermarket in Colony Plaza and other shops about 2-3 miles away when you drive a car or golf cart. We also enjoyed using the rec centers nearby. We certainly appreciated receiving a welcome package and other information at Lake Sumter Square the day after our arrival prearranged by the rental agency.
With a few changes mentioned above, this could be a great rental.
