An ideal location if you are a keen golfer or just keen on relaxing in a quiet, peaceful location. Built in 2006, this detached villa with air conditioning is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac within the Lakeside Golf & Country Club. The villa offers home from home comforts, with an open plan living/dining area, one king size bed in the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and 2 twin bedded rooms with shared bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen for those of you who want to create, and plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute drive, for those of you who don't. The clubhouse also has a brasserie and formal dining restaurant. The villa has its own covered pool with loungers and covered area with fan to keep you cool and where you can enjoy alfresco dining. For the golfers among you, you enjoy the benefits of membership of Lakeside GC while staying at the villa and this entitles you to unlimited golf at 9 other courses within 1/2 hour drive, without paying any green fees.
Activities: For the non-golfer there is plenty to see and do. This is an ideal area for boating, walking, cycling, birdwatching or just simply relaxing by the pool. Tennis is available at the Oaks & Meadows golf club with a Spa and fitness Centre available at the the BellaVista Spa & Fitness Center including indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.
The Disney attractions, Busch Gardens at Tampa and the prestine white sandy beaches of Clearwater are just over an hours drive away. Close at home you can visit Homosassa Springs where you can get up close to the Manatee, or Silver Springs where you can take a glass bottom boat ride to see the natural springs and the underwater wildlife. Locally you can take a guided airboat ride to see the local wildlife and you may be lucky to spot an alligator or two.
This was our second year at the Sedgwick's lovely home in Inverness, Florida, and it continues to be a dream come true for avid golfers such as we. The property is spotless, well maintained, comfortably and attractively furnished, and amply supplied with amenities.
Paul and Nicola Sedgwick are friendly, attentive owners who provide maps, directions for several different travel approaches, and other helpful suggestions. Communicating with them, albeit only by e-mail, has been a pleasure.
Many of the chain restaurants such as Olive Garden, and Applebee's are within easy driving distance, but do try Frankies' on Rte 40 not far from Publix Supermarket for very good food in a "grill" atmosphere, and Angelo's Pizzeria in nearby Hernando for absolutely wonderful Italian food.
For us, the icing on this wonderful cake are the greens fees on six golf courses included with the very reasonable rental (cart fees required). Our favorites were Citrus Springs and, newly added in 2012, The Skyview at nearby Terra Vista, but all the courses included in the package are quite nice. And the area has other, quite reasonably priced courses as well.
Simply stated, this property is a rare find!
The property was as described and is situated on a development managed by Van Der Valk on the owners behalf. This has several advantages. Staff are available during normal working hours to deal with any problems and make golf reservations for you on the 7 associated Golf and Country Clubs that offer discounted rates and access to all their facilities. This gives you the opportunity to play top class courses such as Juliette Falls and Skyview for the cost of the cart only. The golf course on site is not in good condition, but there are so many courses within a 25 mile radius that you are spoiled for choice. There are also numerous other attractions and beaches within easy driving distance. The on site restaurant has been taken back by Van Der Valk and provides quality meals at very reasonable rates. For those that want a more commercialised scene with major attractions, Orlando is just over an hours drive away. Nicola the owner of the villa was helpful and easy to deal with. My wife and I shared the property with another couple who travelled with us and we had plenty of room. We arrived after dark, but Van Der Valk provided a get you in pack of essential groceries and the key was easily obtained from a wall safe in their office. There is an excellent Publix supermarket within a 5 minute drive which is as well stocked as any Waitrose. The villa was clean, comfortable ,well equipped and is in a quiet location. We chose not to have the swimming pool heated, but as we arrived in early April that was a mistake. Anyone arriving from early May will not need heating. We all renjoyed our stay and I can recommend the property.
It is no coincidence, that we - 3 years in a row - have spend 3 weeks in Mrs. Sedgwick's house:
* The house is situated perfect in proportion for the sun
* The house is absolutely perfect for 2 couples/families
* The house is properly provided with aquipment
* The outdoor facilities such as pool areas and dining places are splendid
* The service provided from Van der Valk is outstanding whenever needed
* Shopping centers with household staples and tourist attractions are within a short ride
* A proper local golf course in the resort
* Mrs. Sedgwick is an excelent landlady
What should keep us from coming back !

We had a lovely time in this villa. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The terrace, which includes a swimming pool, is perfectly located. With shade as well as sun all day long.
This is a very comfortable place to rent with a lot of privacy.
The service from Nicola and Van Der Valk was the best.
Thank you for a very nice vacation in this house.
We enjoyed our stay very much!
We had a good time and the house was very well equipped. We did notice that the water pressure in the showers seemed very low. I don't know if there is anything can be done to correct that. Thank you!!
We had another great golf vacation. We have been coming here for a few years and never disappointed. This year Thanksgiving was on the same week as our yearly trip ( wouldn't do that again ). The home was clean and ready on our arrival. Its a excellent location and associated with some terrific golf facilities. We have stayed at other homes in this community. This is a good location and a good price. Nicole is also very professional and pleasant to deal with. Cant wait till next year!!!!!!
This was a perfect location for our golf trip. We played a couple of the cart fee only courses, but this time of the year most courses have a discount rate and there are a number of them in the area.
The pool/lanai area was very relaxing in the evenings (on the nights the Red Sox were not heading to their World Series victory). The lone, non HDTV, in the living room was somewhat disappointing, but they had finished last in 2012 and this was a golf trip.
The community is quiet and well kept. We are definitely considering a return trip next year.
