Great Owners, Impeccable Home

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Jim and Teresa could not have been nicer folks. Their home is only a year or so old, and was fully furnished with everything you could need. The particular area of The Villages in which this home is located was in the very newest southern end, very near the Brownwood Square. Having visited in-laws in The Villages for 14 years, we have a very good sense of how the overall development is set up. We've seen it grow from about 20,000 to just under 100,000 residents. It can be overwhelming to any newbees, what with all of the streets/dead ends, cart trails and tunnels. Even though we've put on many golf car miles over the years, I would recommend buying a Villages paper map as soon as you get there. They have just come out with a Villages specific GPS "AP" for iPhones which would be very helpful to anyone in a car or cart. We played golf everyday on quite a few of the Championship courses. Being a golf addict, the only real beef was the speeds of the greens. (they were all slow, and on some of the courses, the overseeding of the greens was spotty.) These are nits to pick and in no way detract from the great property we rented from Jim and Teresa. We are strongly considering a replay this December.
