About Ralph and Mary Epperson

We both grew up in Lexington, KY and have always taken our vacations in Florida. We decided to purchase property

in Florida so when we retire we will own a little piece of Paradise in the Sunshine State. We both love the beach and the warm weather so we chose Central Florida because of it's easy access to Orlando and it's many attractions and we would be just a little over an hours drive to either coast.

Ralph and Mary Epperson purchased this villa in 2010

Why Ralph and Mary Epperson chose Central Florida

Location location!! Central Florida has it all--close to all attractions of the Orlando's parks and the many lakes that owning in lake county has to offer. Fishing, boating, winery and closeness to the beaches. Come and enjoy all that the sunshine state has to offer!

What makes this villa unique

Our home is in a very active gated golf community. You have 2-18-hole golf courses right out the front door, 3 pools and spas, tennis courts and pickle ball courts, Bocce ball, 3 Club Houses with 3 activity directors that plan over 100 activities per week. You can be as active or inactive as you would like--the choice is yours. We have a golf cart you can rent to use while playing golf or just riding around to see all that the Plantation has to offer. We are sure you will love this home in the Plantation and the location just as much as we do!! Come visit with us and see for yourself!!

This was a comfortable place to stay while we were in the area for business. The kitchen is well equipped. It is convenient to shopping. We would rent it again if we were in the area and it was available.

Over 55 couple looking to relocate

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely 2 week vacation we had in this charmingly decorated and extremely comfortable villa! We enjoyed the privacy and peacefulness of the adorable fenced backyard . The villa was very well equipped and left nothing to be desired. We enjoyed the golf cart so graciously provided....riding among the oaks and small lakes peeking at all the wildlife. We very much recommend this property!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is even nicer in person than it appears on the website. It was very tidy, well-equipped and comfortable. The décor was nicely done as well. The fenced back yard was perfect for our two dogs to get a few minutes of unleashed time every day. There is a washer and dryer in the garage which was very handy and eliminated returning home with loads of dirty laundry. The use of the golf cart was a wonderful extra bonus and we enjoyed several outings around the Plantation and to the resort-like pool. The owners were VERY nice, friendly and easy to deal. They were attentive without being intrusive. I will definitely check to see if this home is available for any future stays in Leesburg before booking a hotel.

An Excellent Stay Start to Finish

  • 5 of 5

Apologies for this belated response. My family of four adults plus two cats stayed here in August and September. There was plenty of room for all. Everything needed for a stay is available with plenty of linens, cookware, and cleaning products. The beds and furniture were most comfortable. The house was immaculate and well maintained with lovely landscaping. A manual with pertinent information about the house and The Plantation is provided. We enjoyed walking the Plantation grounds, and using the pools, and fitness center. People are friendly and helpful.The Eppersons were wonderful to work with, and responded promptly to any questions. It is evident that they are invested in their guests having a great experience in their home. I highly recommend a stay here.

First Timers

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June and loved the home and the Plantation Community. The house was very clean and we enjoyed the decor and fully equipped kitchen. We loved riding around in the golf cart and seeing the sites in the Plantation. The activity center is beautiful and if we stayed longer we would definitely want to participate in the activities. We enjoyed the heated pool and swam every day.

Leesburg had lots to offer and we loved eating at the Smokehouse restaurant. We would surely pick this home to stay in if we visit again.

Florida pet friendly home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with our dog stayed here in April to bask in the warm Florida weather. With a fenced in back yard its perfect for a dog. The place shows pride of ownership, very clean and organized. A place for everything and everything in its place.

The Plantation community has much green space and the people are very friendly. I used the pool and fitness area almost every day, no issues with over-crowding. Grocery stores and places to dine are close by.

Owners are very responsive and helpful regarding any questions you might have. Perfect place to escape during winter months.
