Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your villa very much and would have re-booked for next year, if you hadn't already been booked. Loved all the amenities you provided as well as the quick response and follow up on the tv that we could not figure out. I would highly recommend your villa to anyone looking to rent in the Villages!

Perfect Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience overall! From the very start of inquiring about the villa to the very end of our two month stay, the communication was fantastic!! Even though we never personally met Patti while we were at her villa, she was so responsive with emails. Patti is so efficient and organized with every little detail laid out for the renters that there is really no need to see her in person.

This was our third time renting in The Villages and always had a good experience but I must say that Patti by far surpasses the other owners we rented from. She treats her renters so special…everything from the gift basket to a wonderful starter supply of necessities. She goes above and beyond what is expected.

I can be a nit-pick about cleanliness, décor and comfort but there is no need to worry with this villa. It is beautifully decorated and everything is coordinated so nicely. The pictures on the wall truly represent The Villages and Florida life. The beds are very comfortable and the master bedroom closet has plenty of room. I also need to mention the maid service that came in every other week were fantastic and quick.

The villa is close to Brownwood but you can get Sumter Landing (25 min.) or Spanish Springs (45 min.) by golf cart. In the past we stayed centrally located within The Villages but we preferred being close to Brownwood because Publix and Winn Dixie were only about a 5 minute cart ride away. It was so convenient to take the cart rather than the car. Speaking of the golf cart that came with the villa, it was great. It even had a radio which was really a nice addition.

I loved this location for my morning runs. I’d head out in the morning for a good 4-6 mile run with plenty of neighborhoods/villages to explore. The multi-model path is also close for those who would rather walk/run on that, but beware of the golf carts. The villa is very close to the neighborhood pool, neighborhood recreational center, and Eisenhower Regional recreational center.

I could go on and on with the positives about this villa. This place was so comfortable and felt like home to us. We are planning on returning in 2016 for another two months and can’t wait.

Patti, you are the best!!! Thank you for making our two month stay so wonderful.

Fantastic Villa, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was clean, decorated to a tee, close to pools, recreational centers and town squares. Patti was an exceptional host, who was friendly and courteous and more than generous offering her Villa for an extended stay if our plane was delayed due to the weather. We will definitely rent from her again, she is first class and top notch.

Patti Heleva provides a "hell of a villa" at the V

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning of our business relationship, Patti was as pleasant a person as you could hope for. Our relationship immediately went from business to friendly and remains that way until now. She is truly a quality; caring person who goes out of her way to understand and exceed her client’s needs and wants. She truly understood that we were on vacation, and she was going to make it an exceptional one for us. I can say without reservation, she did make it exceptional! I loved it!

The property is roomy and comfortable. The Villa, its appliances and golf cart were impeccably spotless. Patti runs the villa as a quality business with customer satisfaction as the highest priority. Every detail that a property owner could think of to make our stay a quality event is anticipated and provided. Her promptness and customer service skills were unparalleled by even the highest quality hotels (and we stay in HIGH QUALITY hotels) during vacation. The Villa is beautiful, expertly decorated, and all appliances functioned properly. The villa has plenty of closet and panty space for you “in home chefs”, and is local to everything. It is convenient for shopping, entertainment (Disney & Universal), pools, golf courses, and don’t forget dining. Every night we ate somewhere new.

The villa's Climate & A/C control, with three indoor fans, and a large outdoor fan in the enclosed patio, provided great comfort everywhere in the villa. My wife particularly enjoyed sitting on the patio, watching the sunrise as she drank her coffee, by the shade of the palm tree, and the cool breeze of the patio fan.

We had an outstanding time at the Villages, and would not hesitate to reserve Patti’s villa again. Thanks Patti for a great experience! :)

Awesome stay at Carrabelle Villas

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival the villa was decorated, clean and well-maintained exactly as the pictures online! We were attending a Family Reunion and the property was located within a few miles of family members and reunion activities.

We will definitely rent again and recommend this property to others.

Don't look any further !!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitated writing a review,because I don't want it to be booked when we want to go there again. Even though we expected a nice place from looking at the pictures--the pictures don't even do it justice-it is beautifully decorated with excellent quality furniture!!! Loved everything about it. Comfortable furniture and beds. Has all of the odds and ends you need to begin your stay ex. dish soap/dish washer soap, hand soap, body wash and shampoo/conditioner,laundry detergent, tin foil, plastic wrap,scissors, coffee filters,salt,pepper,t-towels,sponge for dishes etc. Tons of info about the villages is provided.

Patti (the owner) has a eye for detail and she doesn't miss a thing. She is a pleasure to deal with! It was obvious that she takes great pride in her rental property as well as assisting her renters in any way she can. The golf cart even has a radio and a little plastic container attached to the windshield for you to keep your map in (believe me you don't want to leave home without your map--ha). Internet, daily newspaper and free long distance to Canada was awesome. The Eisenhower rec. center where you could play pickle ball, shuffleboard, bocce ball, the pool, and Brownswood the town center with shops and nightly entertainment was just a hop, skip and a jump away by golf cart. If the time you want to go to the villages is available, don't waste your time looking for something else--- book now--- you won't be disappointed!! Oh I forgot to mention, half way through our month stay she had cleaning crew scheduled to come to the house.

Mitch and Bill Thanks Patti for everything!!
