About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Beautifully Furnished, Electric Golf Cart included



Enjoy the rays of the warm Florida sun throughout the year! Come to the perfect setting at The Villages in the Center of the sunny state of Florida. Our home has everything you are looking for; a great location to everything, a lanai overlooking a very tranquil view, an electric golf cart to “buzz” around in and wonderfully furnished sleeping up to 6 people in the 3 bedrooms two bath property. All you need to bring are your clothes!

Sitting in the Village of Bonita you are only a short golf cart ride to Lake Sumter Landing Market Square for nightly fun and festivities; a short distance between two Country Clubs in the Villages (Mallory Hill and Havana) and Bacall & Bogart golf courses and Bacall Village Center and Family Pool and the Bonita Neighborhood Pool. You are located south of 466 and north of 466A between Buena Vista Blvd and Morse Blvd….the Heart of The Villages.

Just to mention a few of the many recreational activities and clubs (over 1,000): Pickle Ball, Horseshoes, Billiards, Tennis, Bocce Ball, Shuffleboard, Sand Volleyball, Cycling and so much more. Do you want to go shopping? Many of the familiar retail shops, restaurants and grocery stores are located throughout The Villages. The restaurants run the gamut from very casual coming off the 18th hole to fine dining at the Country Club and everything in between.

You don’t have to play golf but for many of us that do; with your Village Resident ID card (provided with your stay) you can access any of the 29 Executive Golf courses with no greens fees. You will also love the resident rates for the greens fees on the 12 Championship courses!

Long term stays welcome and discounts available. Please call for details.

About Jim and Rebecca

Married in 2015, Rebecca and I knew The Villages was where we wanted to retire. We purchased our home in Bonita the same year with the hopes of renting to guests who wanted to enjoy the amenities of home in The Villages without making the investment. While our beautiful home in Bonita is mainly rented by month during the fall and winter seasons, we also cater to short stays during the spring and summer months for those guests who may be trying out The Villages or looking for a home of their own.

Jim and Rebecca purchased this house in 2015

Why Jim and Rebecca chose Bonita

Our home is centrally located in The Villages with a short cart ride to Sumter Landing, recreation centers and surrounding golf courses. We selected the property due to its location, friendly neighbors, and close proximity to all activities. You won't be disappointed with our home! It is well maintained, includes everything you would have at home and the value of including "extras". For example, we include a fully stocked kitchen, cable TV in every room, Apple TV, Netflix, the morning newspaper, two resident guest passes, an electric golf cart with fast charge installed, and much more!

Very Enjoyable!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our little non-shedding yorkie poo enjoyed our stay a great deal! The home was very well kept and very nicely furnished. All of the beds were comfortable. Appliances including the grill worked great. We loved the lanai and the golf cart. As for The Villages, it was an awesome experience! Riding around the area in the golf cart, playing pickle ball and swimming at many of the recreation parks were just a few of the amazing amenities The Villages have to offer. We spent every night at one of the Squares listening to live music! The Villages is a magical place and a wonderful place to vacation. Thanks Jim and Rebecca for making our stay an awesome 'Village' experience!

Very accommodating and polite owner, nice house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this house for 3 weeks in order to let my Mom experience The Villages and potentially find a place to purchase. We sent Mom down a week early to explore and tour homes. Jim assisted her with a couple of questions she had about the golf cart, and was accommodating when we misplaced the gate pass and needed to get it replaced. He was very responsive and friendly.

My family and my brother and his fiance joined Mom for Thanksgiving week. The 3rd bedroom fold-out couch wasn't the greatest, but it worked, and otherwise the place was plenty big for our family to celebrate the holiday.

In the end, we found a place for Mom, actually quite close to this house. This house is located a short 10 minute cart-ride from Sumter Landing Square, which was my Mom's favorite square in The Villages, so the area was perfect and she will enjoy her place in the area.

I highly recommend this place as a nice, clean, well kept and roomy spot for anyone looking to enjoy all that The Villages has to offer. Thank you Jim for a great stay.

great home in perfect location

This is the second year that I have stayed at this great home. So comfortable with great owners, and perfectly located for town centers, golfing and centered for all areas of the Villages. Hope to be able to stay again next year.

  • 5 of 5

and could not be in a better location... a quickie cart ride to the pool as well as multiple golf courses... a dream for sun seekers & golfers alike! (not to mention the short hop to lake sumpter for wonderful restaurants & entertainment)... LOVE the "coastal" furnishings... almost like living in a magazine spread... thanks so much, jim + rebecca, for sharing your home... made our two weeks way too short!

Property was very clean & geographically located to everything. Kitchen was well equipped, beds comfortable & flat screen TV's everywhere. Golf Cart included was a real plus & fun to drive to the recreation centers & pools located close by.

We have been spending winters in Florida for over 20 years, first owning in southern FL , then coming North to this wonderful area. With all that is available, it was all topped by Jim and Rebecca's beautiful home. Whether enjoying a round of golf or experencing the bustling town centers, we looked forward to returning to "our home". The back enclosed deck overlooks a well landscaped yard surrounded by six homes, One neighbor has a lovely water fountain that is the perfect backdrop for our morning coffee and paper. One feels very secluded but an occasional glass of wine may be shared if ones wishes. The house is all one could ask for as several reviewers have already posted. BEST EXPERIENCE WE'VE HAD SINCE WE BEGAN RENTING.
