A Great Place to Stay in The Villages!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Russell and Lisa's home for the month of December and had a great experience. We have stayed in The Villages in prior years and by far rate this our best experience. The house is very comfortable and well stocked with whatever you may want or need. The neighborhood is a real plus with great neighbors who help get the uninitiated familiar with the lifestyle The Villages offer. The owners were great to work with and go out of their way to insure that everything is right and that the stay is as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a location in the Villages. You will not be disappointed and you can be sure we will not hesitate to rent this home in the future!!

We Had A Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in we loved this place. It was comfortable, clean and quiet. The neighborhood was great and close to what we needed. We took the golf cart to "our" pool, to the mailbox and to the dog park, and just for tooling around the neighborhoods. Jack is very much into grilling, and we enjoyed delicious meals on the lanai several times a week. The restaurants were not far and the food was always great. All in all we had a wonderful stay, loved the home and accommodations, and would happily recommend it to anyone.

Our vacation at this house was extremely pleasant. House is well equipped and comfortable. Location is great and close to everything you would need. And the owner has made every effort to make your stay a pleasant one. Golf cart is a plus and very useful. We have rented several homes in the Villages and this one stands above all the rest. We would be happy to go back!!

We stayed in Russ and Lisa's home in Feb., 2013, and found it to be a very enjoyable home and setting. The photos are very accurate, and the home was very clean, and well maintained. Russ is more than helpful in answering questions, and provided excellent information on all aspects of the home, and The Villages. The lanai is particularly nice. It is large, comfortable, and very private. The golf cart is a very nice and valuable feature included with the rental. The high-speed internet was extremely helpful, and is not found in many rentals. We loved the nearby Spanish Springs town square, and the Mexican restaurant located there. We would absolutely rent this home again, and we would recommend it to our friends. Thank you, Russ and Lisa, for a very enjoyable time. We hope to rent your home again
in the future.

Thanks for the nice review of our home in the Villages. Renting a home in the Villages is very competitive and it is a big help to get a good review. I will make any things that were a problem right in the future.

Comfortable and convenient in Chatham

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to The Villages, having spent a week here during the week of the 4th of July. This time the visit was for a full month because we were here for the purpose of purchasing a residence.

The house is located in the Village of Chatham, which is in the northwestern quadrant of what most residents call "The Park." The nearest championship golf course is the Nancy Lopez Legacy Country Club which you can drive to in a few short minutes by golf cart. There are also two Executive golf courses less than five minutes away by cart, as well as a Recreation Center and family swimming pool. Another recreation center and family swimming pool is within two miles of the house.

Even the Savannah Center, where stage performances take place, is in comfortable golf cart range of the house. One of the major shopping areas which are located on the fringes of The Park is also in golf cart range. We did not use a cart to go to Spanish Springs town square, which is five miles from the house, but it would not be a daunting trip if you were willing to devote the time to drive that distance.

I strongly recommend the purchase of an official The Villages road map which shows not only the streets but also the golf cart roads. Maps can be purchased at The Villages sales offices. Currently the maps cost $5.00.

The house is comfortable and well equipped. Being busy house hunting we did not have time for much recreation but we made a couple of trips to the nearby Executive golf course late in the day and used the putters provided with the house on the practice putting green. When we used the family swimming pool we took the floatation devices provided at the house. Not being agile enough for tennis or pickle ball (a form of paddle ball) we did not use those items, but they were there.

The inclusion of a golf cart in the rental is a big plus. Local rentals of a golf cart costs around $20 a day.

We did take lessons and learned the official rules of shuffleboard. In our July visit we also played bocci ball.

On many evenings we went to either Spanish Springs or Lake Sumpter Landings town center for the live entertainment.

The Villages is an outstanding place for active seniors.

Did we like the location of the house? Yes. We bought one less than a mile away.

The owner, Russ, was very helpful with information about the house and the area. This is an excellent rental in a quiet neighborhood.
