Guestbook comments from the owner

Our one month stay in "The Villages" at Sean and Norma Carr's villa was great. We felt very comfortable in their beautiful home. Their home had everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and in a great location. We enjoyed the use of their electric golf cart to golf and travel all around in. It was a dream vacation that we enjoyed very much. The Carr's were very helpful and accomodating with information on "The Villages", places to shop, eat, and golf. We hope to go back in the future and maybe even buy a place.

Fabulous Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

Our landlord was the best. He was extremely helpful and became a friend during our stay. The home was lovely and extremely clean. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Nicki & Steve; It was great to meet and get to know you. Thank you for the kind words and the recommendation for future potential renters. Thanks to you, they will now have some idea as to what to expect if they decide to rent our villa. It was really a pleasure having you as guests and I really enjoyed seeing and hearing about the two of you getting out to enjoy so many of the things The Villages has to offer, particularly tennis. I think you discovered what The Villages is all about and took advantage of every possible minute enjoying it here. I hope you get the chance to come back. Thanks again. Sean

It was clean and comfy and had everything we needed for our stay. Sean, our landlord, is the best. Great stay----miss it. Hope to have another stay----enjoyed THE VILLAGES".

Great location. Very clean and well-stocked house... Right down to the toilet paper and paper towels! We were looking to purchase a place of our own and rented for a month to give ourselves time to explore and look at listings. Sean was especially helpful in telling us about The Villages and surrounding area. When we did find a place, he allowed us the flexibility to extend our stay until we closed.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in The Villages was very comfortable and convenient to activities at the squares. The home was very well maintained and supplied with essentially everything we needed including a Golf Car. The neighbors were great as well. We would not hesitate to return to this home.

I live with my fiancé in Barrington, IL.

Probably the best place to rent in the Villages!

  • 5 of 5

Like staying at a relatives home. Equipped with everything we needed and more than we expected. Fully and very tastefully furnished with up to date appliances and comfortable beds and furniture. Needless to say everything was immaculate and working perfectly. The owner, Sean was very friendly and helpful, he offered to be a resource for The Villages and surrounding areas and helped us with restaurants and understanding The Villages lifestyle. Having the golf cart was a big plus. You will feel lucky if you can rent here!

The Villages advertises that over 500 activities are available to its residents. Most vacation resorts cannot compare to all the activities The Villages has to offer. It has over 52 beautiful community swimming pools, 33 well groomed executive golf courses & 18 fabulous championship courses, just to name a few.

On the last Thursday of each month The Villages Daily Sun Newspaper prints a 55 plus page Recreation Guide, listing most of the recreational activities available to residents for the upcoming month. Unfortunately, VRBO can't provide enough space for a single weeks activities to be listed here. If you have an interest in anything from Antique Automobiles to Zumba there is a Life Long Learning Program Course or a Club that shares your interest here in The Villages.

Each of The Villages three town squares is beautifully designed with a distinctive themed architecture, and each offers free entertainment seven nights a week. Every night there is a crowd of residents in each of our town squares dancing away the evening hours after enjoying a fabulous dinner at any of our fine restaurants, or a day of shopping.

Another nice thing about The Villages is that if you would like to spend a day at any of the Orlando area attractions (Disney, Sea World, Universal,etc.) they are a very easy drive of just little over an hour, on major highways. The Villages is far enough away that you don't have to deal with any of the problems associated with that area and yet close enough to reap all of the benefits of it's attractions.

As a couple who have called The Villages home for a lot of years, we believe this is a fabulous place to live. We have found that our past renters agree, as almost all of them have purchased homes here. Now, they are our friends and neightbors, who also call The Villages home.
