About Lisa & John Ganley

We have lived in Hudson, Ohio for the last 10 years, and hope to someday soon live in the Villages! Before living in Hudson, we lived in Simsbury, Connecticut for 15 years. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and John grew up in Ledyard, Connecticut.

Lisa & John Ganley purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa & John Ganley chose The Villages

We purchased in the Villages after having traveled here to visit family many times. We love the location of this property. Walking distance to the pool and just a short golf cart ride to Brownwood and shopping. It just feels like vacation everyday!

What makes this house unique

We love the layout of the house, everything about it makes us happy. Having the guest bedrooms separated from the master makes it so comfortable to have guests anytime.

Terrific House!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here January and February 2017. This home was exactly as described and more! The home is walking distance to the recreation centre that has bocce ball, shuffle board, tennis, pickle ball, billiards, a family pool and various other activities offered there. What a fantastic location. When we arrived a welcome basket was waiting for us. The home was clean with everything required for our stay. The owners provided excellent instructions for everything in the house. We felt very much at home. The four seater golf cart was great to have for golfing and getting around The Villages in general. Communication with the owners was excellent. From the initial request to book this property and throughout our stay Lisa and John responded very quickly to all our questions.

We look forward to our next stay!

Wonderful home in the Villages!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our stay in the Villages and I cannot not say enough nice things about this wonderful home. The Hillsborough location is convenient to Brownwood (movie theater, restaurants and shops) and a very nice Publix. A great 4 seater golf cart is included when you rent this home. It was so easy to zip over to Brownwood in the golf cart for whatever we needed. The home is also just a short walk to a nice family pool (with tennis courts, shuffleboard, etc.) We spent a lot of time outside but it was just as nice to stay inside! The house feels like it is brand new. It is lovely and neat as a pin! It is furnished very tastefully, couches and beds are comfortable, and the owners have made sure you have everything you need. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, nice pots and pans and all appliances. There are even beach towels a first aid and sewing kit. The owner was so pleasant and nice when we were booking the property. We had a few questions during our stay and she responded quickly every time. A pleasure to stay here in every way and we can't wait until we can return!

Beautiful and well kept home, everything you need is provided.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property and the owners have thought of every need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. You won't regret choosing this property, it is close to the pool and offers the use of a golf cart, which is a necessity in The Villages.

Perfect for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three teenagers had everything we wanted and more. The convenience of the electronic keypad entry was a blessing. The AC was cool and silent. The golf cart was peppy. And the bikes, while only used once due to the summer heat, were a nice option. We also loved the large walk in closet, the double sink, and the walk in shower. The floor plan was great putting our kids on the opposite side of the house. We took advantage of the washer, dryer and enjoyed the ice maker and water dispenser on the stainless steel refrigerator. The kitchen was fully equipped, including little spoons for stirring my beverages. The kids said they were actually baby spoons. Nice touch regardless. The neutral decor was pleasing and the neighbors we encountered were all friendly. To top it all off, we had shopped around and this was a great deal!

Beautiful home in The Villages!!! Everything you could want and more!! You will love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered Lisa and John's lovely home, we knew we had picked a winner!!! Their 3 bedroom home in the Village of Hillsborough is like new!!! Clean, tastefully decorated, organized, fully stocked, and very very roomy...it was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting my family in the Villages. Our hosts provided everything we could need and even surprised us by having bottled water and snacks waiting for us upon arrival! Their four seat golf cart was just the icing the cake! A golf cart is a MUST in the Villages and it's not easy to find a rental home that includes this ammenity. Especially a four seater! They also have bicycles and tennis rackets. The Manatee Recreation Center is a short stroll away and we enjoyed using their courts, swimming pool, and billiards. I know that choosing a rental can be stressful, and there are many to choose from. Let me assure you, based on our experience, that Lisa and John's home in the Villages will exceed your expectations and will create the perfect foundation for a fun filled stay whether short or long term :-)
