About Tom Kauth

I am a retired principal, from Canton Ohio, taught at a local university, and am a lifelong farmer. I love to play golf, farm, and travel.

Tom Kauth purchased this house in 2005

Why Tom Kauth chose Sunset Pointe

Before we purchased our home in The Villages in 2005, I had visited 28 gated communities in Florida. I knew that when I came over the bridge to Lake Sumter Landing, one evening at dusk, that this was the place.

Someday, when I completely retire, I will spend more time enjoying our home. In the meantime, I enjoy renting our home to the most friendly people that I have ever known.

Our home is 1 hour from Disney World and many other attractions.

Also, we enjoy riding our golf cart to over 100 restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a 5 minute golf cart ride to Lake Sumter Landing. We are a block away from the Sunset Pointe pool, and 3 blocks away from Hibiscus pool at the Cane Garden Country Club. Our home is also just several blocks away from the Lake Miona Recreation Center where you can swim, play pickle ball, tennis, and take life long learning classes. We are also 5 minutes by golf cart from the new Sea Breeze Recreation Center, which has all the regular amenities in additional to a fitness center.

Where else can you have free golf on over 32 executive courses, play at 13 championship courses and can attend free concerts every evening?

From the beginning Tom was a man of his word. Everything we discussed during the rental process right thru our final days came true. He made the process very easy and enjoyable. Tom takes a lot of pride in his house and it showed right away as soon as we walk in. We visit the villages often and this location was by far the best with easy access to the pools, golf, rec center and the Lake Sumter market square. The golf cart is band new and very comfortable. We loved the house and our time spent in the villages. If your looking for a stress free rental vacation house then Toms's your guy.. I'd recommend this to a friend.

Wisconsin Retirees

We frequently rent at the Villages and Tom's house is one of the best experiences we have ever had. The house is beautiful and wonderfully equipped with everything you need. Even down to the kitchen including a wide variety of spices. The 4 person golf cart is also unique and although there was just 2 of us it would be a big advantage if you had 4 people. We are already looking for a rental for the entire month of September and without a doubt would rent from Tom again but we would need a rental that would allow a small dog. Tom is a great supportive and friendly landlord, I have never met a better one. P.S. The location is great !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tom and Sue for the 5 star review. I am glad that you found the kitchen well stocked and everything that you might need. Yes, most of my renters find that the 4 seat gas cart is a real benefit. I hope that I can rent to you in the future, but, as you know, I do not allow pets. I appreciate your understanding of this policy.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was about the 12th visit for us to The Villages. Tom's house was excellently equipped and in a prime location. There was nothing overlooked in the house. We had everything we needed and more. Tom was so quick to respond to every inquiry we made to him. This is definitely a house we would rent again and would rent from Tom again in an instant. We had another couple visit for a couple of days who had never seen The Villages. The first impression was this house and they continue to talk about how nice it was.

Carefree Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with two teenage girls, enjoyed Tom's rental home for two weeks during the "off season". The home was immaculate and well stocked. All amenities were available, including much appreciated internet service. The four seat golf cart allowed us to access all that The Villages have to offer, except for Spanish Springs for which we used our car due to the relative distance. We did experience a minor mechanical problem with the cart, but Tom was on it instantly through a local dealer, so it really didn't impact our enjoyable experience. Tom is very thorough, and it is apparent that he has put a lot of thought into providing everything that a renter needs. No hassles, just a great escape from the working world. I highly recommend this home. What more could you want?

Sunset Pointe

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Tom's rental home to escape the NY winter. The place was very clean, comfortable and excellently maintained. Has a nice view of the Cane Garden golf course across the street. We enjoyed golfing, biking, and sunning at a very convenient pool about one block away. The golf cart was perfect for getting around and worked flawlessly. The kitchen was well supplied and we enjoyed most meals in. Best of all, Tom was keenly aware of all details and made sure everything was well maintained. We believe him to be an excellent and conscientious landlord. We plan to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing a review and especially the "5 star rating." I appreciated your comments about taking care of details, the view from the lanai, and that the kitchen is well stocked with eveything that you might need. Yes, many renters enjoy the 4 seat golf cart to go to town and playing golf. I am looking forward to having you back next year.
