This was a wonderful experience and we are returning!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this beautiful home. The large screened lanai gives spectacular views of the expanse of the fairway bordered by magnificent oak trees, the lake that attracts many Herons, Egrets, Ibis, Sand Hill Cranes and White Pelicans. Overhead the Osprey lazily circled and the Mockingbirds sang to us from the nearby Palm trees. The multiple white sandy areas of the fairway look like landlocked beaches. What a view as we basked in the warm sun next to the heated pool!

The lanai has a covered area in addition to the open area. There is an undercounter refrigerator and a sink that were both very handy for the many activities that centered in the lanai. The lanai had a gas grill and the aroma of grilling meat wafting through the lanai was common.

Inside, the kitchen was very large and well appointed enabling multiple "cooks" to work together simultaneously. That was a blessing! The other living spaces were spacious and decorated with taste. Everything was very clean and tidy. They also had cleaning products so we were able to keep it clean without having to worry about purchasing cleaning products during our month long stay.

The spacious garage also contained a service rack with an abundant supply of paper products, hand soap, body soap, plastic waste basket liners, recycling bags, etc. They thought of everything to make our stay exceptional!

The house is located in the Village of Collier which is very close to the Eisenhower Recreation Center and another public pool. The Brownwood Square with the variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment is quite close. This is a great location!

We are not golfers, however, the availability of a Golf Cart with the rental was a real bonus. We could get to the Rec Center and/or the Brownwood Square in just a few minutes. On One trip we saw a LARGE alligator sunning on the banks of a nearby lake. What an experience for northerners!

Prior to our arrival, the owners communicated with us and sent us information that helped to prepare for our visit. David also promptly responded to some specific questions we had and that was appreciated. During our visit, David sent us weekly e-mails about classes being held in the Rec Center. This really exceeded our expectations!

At the end of each day, we would pull the bed sheets back and slide onto elegant sheets for a peaceful night's rest. This place is FIVE STAR in all dimensions!

This is an outstanding home and we have already scheduled our return visit next year!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for the extensive details of your experience of a full month staying in our house. Curtis and his family was the first guest to stay an entire month and it was heartwarming to hear that it was a delightful experience. We look forward to his return next year for another full month.

Beautiful house and outstanding views of golf course

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nicely decorated. The pool was very nice and we enjoyed sitting at the table having lunch and watching the golfers. The beds and linens were new and clean. Not sure what previous guest was referring to. Will definitely come back.

The home is beautiful, the beds, sheets, pillows very old and worn out.

Owner's Response: I was quite shocked at this review since it is opposite to the 27 other 5 Star reviews. This house was built 2 years ago and we filled it with brand new furniture, new mattresses, new pillows, new sheets, new bedspreads and new kitchenware. Everything is at the most 2 years old. I have personally examined the sheets and pillows after his stay and have no idea what the guest is referring to. No other guest even suggested anything close to old in their comments. I did buy NEW sheets and pillow cases just so there no future concern. We have several types of pillows since some people like soft and some like fuller. It is possible he did not like the softer flatter pillows. I would also like to mention that we had problems with this guest. We have a 10:30 check out and when the maids arrived at 12:00, the guests were still there and the maids had to wait another 1/2 hour until they left.This caused the maids to be late getting the house ready for the next guest check in at 4 PM. It takes 4 hours to clean the house and wash and dry the laundry. Secondly we found 3 deep scratches on the front of our 2 year old stainless steel refrigerator! They can not be removed and could only have been caused by carelessly wiping the door without adjusting her diamond ring . These were definitely NOT there before their arrival. We now have to replace the doors at a cost of $2000. We try very hard to make your vacation experience pleasant and I would suggest reading past reviews, especially the one from Richard who stayed at the house the 3 weeks before Ed, and future reviews.

Exceptional Property Beyond our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The Bath home in the Villages was exactly the vacation rental we had envisioned, and more. David corresponded with us prior to the trip and arranged for pick-up of the resident IDs and guest passes, and the day before arrival provided instructions for entering the home. This was as painless as it gets. Upon arrival the home was perfect in every way, including all the necessary amenities needed for a comfortable, carefree vacation. The home is well furnished, the kitchen area is huge (and beautiful), and the lanai and pool areas overlooking the golf course are relaxing. The home is centrally located in the Villages and is very near the IKE recreation center and the Brownwood town center. There are many good restaurants nearby. The golf cart provided with the home is first class. Needless to say, the golfing opportunities are fantastic, with 12 championship courses and 33 executive courses on the Villages property, all within the golf cart driving distance. The description regarding the home was accurate and the property was clean and well maintained in all aspects. David provided all the necessary information for a carefree vacation and was available by telephone if needed. This is a wonderful place to spend a quiet, relaxing vacation with a variety of recreational activities and entertainment located within golf cart distance. We definitely plan to return to the Bath home in the future and highly recommend this as the perfect vacation home for others to enjoy. Thank you David for allowing us to share your beautiful home for this short period of time. We will be in touch with you soon for next years vacation. Sincerely, Richard and Diane

Terrific Home In Collier

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to The Villages for 5 years and this is our favorite home. We love the location, the layout of the home, the pool, and the view. It is also so nice to have everything you need in the home including a golf cart. We had a membership to MVP Sports for a week in Brownwood for $30 each and enjoyed that. The golf courses are a great deal and the sand hill cranes are enjoyable to watch hanging out on the greens. The neighbors are also very friendly.

We appreciate the Baths sharing their home! We'll be back!
