About Gloria Doyle

David & I purchased our first home in The Villages in 2005. David loves to fish, play golf, tennis, pickleball and softball. I keep busy golfing, painting, playing mahjongg, cards and other games. Our favorite thing to do in The Villages is spend time with our friends and family.

Gloria Doyle purchased this house in 2010

Why Gloria Doyle chose The Villages

The Villages has over 110,000 residents and is still growing. There are new golf courses and three town squares . One of my favorite things to do here is to go out shopping in my golf cart. I can drive to Lake Sumter Landing and do my banking, shopping, visit my doctor, and go out for lunch or dinner without having to drive my car. The golf carts even have large grocery bag attachments so I can do all my shopping at once. Come stay at our place for a month or longer and see what The Villages is all about.

What makes this house unique

You can stroll down to the recreation center to enjoy the family pool. The house is at the end of a short street ending in the cul-de-sac. The house is at the end of the cul-de-sac giving a private off the main road location while still being close to everything whether it be dancing downtown, playing tennis, golfing or dining with friends. The house is well equipped with like new 'Southern Lifestyle furniture and appliances. The bedding was updated in 2014 for a fresh new look.

Still Great!!

We were pleased on our return to see the updates inside and outside. My favorite was the lime green front door! The owners continue to make each stay a pleasure.

Pleased Repeat Visitors

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for several years consecutively for the following reasons:

1. It's in a great, centralized location in The Villages.

2. The owners make it such a pleasant, easy experience. All you have to do is show up because everything you need is at the house from a crock pot to a golf cart gassed up and ready to go.

3. The house is always neat and clean and in good repair.

4. The owners really strive to make it a home away from home and respond immediately to any concerns and issues. They live in The Villages and have even come over in the middle of the night to help me with an issue when my husband was out of town. They are really terrific.

5. There are 2,000+ clubs in The Villages to cater to any interest you might have along with multiple venues of live entertainment, lots of friendly and active 55+ adults, fabulous movie theaters, lovely surroundings and landscaping, multiple restaurants, and too many adult educational opportunities to believe. You just have to visit the place to take it all in.

6. A couple of new favorites this year were Yalaha Bakery where they make beautiful, authentic German pastries "to die for" and yummy lunches with great German cold cuts; Rae Rae's Restaurant in Lady Lake has phenomenal breakfasts, Harbor Hills Country Club in Lady Lake does a wonderful Sunday Brunch and the list goes on and on!

We were so pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and quality of the furnishing that we would most highly recommend this place to our closest friends. The location is perfect for getting to Sumter Landing (town center), pools, golf, and rec centers. We couldn't be more pleased. And, Gloria, the owner couldn't be nicer or more helpful!It was delightful to say the least.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy & Gus, Thank you so much for the lovely review. I really appreciate it. Look forward to perhaps putting up some of your friends or family in the future. I just put solar tubes in since you left and the place is even better. They give a lot of extra light in darker spaces. Just wanted to thank you again. Gloria

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh trip to The Villages and we brought my sister along this year for her first visit. We couldn't be more pleased with this home and the location. It is better than described and the photos don't do it justice. Extremely clean and comfortable and has some features we will look for when we are finally able to buy in The Villages. The owners are excellent about communicating and answering any questions.

Short stay

  • 4 of 5

This property met our needs and was very comfortable. The location is also convenient. On our arrival, we found a couple of problems with a television and a printer. The owners were great in taking care of these issues. A manual describing the home and it's functions is very good. The only negative is the living area is rather dark for our wants.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to find a home to purchase while in The Villages. I regret that you found the home too dark but I will that into consideration when I repaint next year. I also have added an additional television in the guest bedroom. Thank you for your honest review.
