Super Villa for Golf Holiday

Review submitted: January 21, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

Far nicer in reality than it shows in the photos on-line, the villa was completely comfortable and a terrific golf vacation spot.Mist on the lake out front in the mornings and colored lights on the fountain on the lake at night = paradise. Thank you, Michael, for making our stay go smoothly.Recommend nearby Pearl in the Grove and City Market Bistro restaurants highly. Golf at Lake Jovita and at World Woods. Excellent!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway

Owners response: Thank you very much for the kind remarks and useful comments for future guests. We enjoyed having you and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Michael

Wonderful Place to Stay

Review submitted: August 29, 2013   Date of arrival: August 8, 2013

This was a fabulous place to stay. A great 3 bedroom villa on the 18th Hole of one of two golf courses. It was nice after coming back from an early morning run on the cart paths of the golf courses to sit in the screened lanai and enjoy breakfast and watch the people get the golf course ready and later the golfers. The villa was very comfortable with nice beds. It was close enough to Tampa and easy to get there, but was far enough away that you that you did not have the noise and hustle and bustle of the city. Grocery stores are easily accessible in Dade City and we found a great small mom & pop Mexican restaurant in San Antonio (not Texas, but a small little town just about 3 or 4 miles from the villa). Michael (the owner) was very easy to work with. It was a great experience and would definitely do it again if I get the chance. I highly recommend this villa.

Owners response: Chris - we appreciate the kind words and are delighted you enjoyed your visit. We do look forward to welcoming you back in the not to distant future.

Amazing Villa with great views

Review submitted: June 7, 2013   Date of arrival: May 30, 2013

Our family just completed a week at the Villa. What a wonderful place to stay. All the comforts of home and everything you could need. Very clean, spacious and quiet. Gated community only adds to the experience. The owner was very helpful and communicated well with us throughout the process. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who will be in the area. No concerns whatsoever. Thanks again Michael!

We currently spent a month at your condo in Lake Jovita, Florida. It was very clean, modern with all the amenities of home. The gated community with a 24 hour security added comfort to our stay. The location is only five miles from I-75, so you have easy access to shopping, golfing and sight-seeing. We also enjoyed sitting in the lanai relaxing, and watching golfers at the eighteenth hole. We would highly recommend this condo for a vacation rental.

Incredible Golf Views

Review submitted: April 11, 2012   Date of arrival: February 1, 2012

We stayed here for 2 months and enjoyed everything about the villa. It has incredible views of the 18th and 9th greens of Lake Jovita Golf course. The villa has lots of room with a fully functional kitchen including everything you need to feel at home. The washer/dryer were nice features so you did not need to go to a laundry mat. There is very good shopping and restaurants within 10 minutes. Loved historic Dade City with its antique shops and little restaurants.

Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable and worry free!

Owners response: Bill and Darcy were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to the opportunity to rent to them in the future

All we wanted and more

Review submitted: October 31, 2010   Date of arrival: October 11, 2010

With its peaceful location overlooking the 18th green, this villa exceeded our expectations as a holiday let. It was nicely furnished, well appointed and so spacious. It more than lived up to the description and photos on the web-site. We greatly appreciated the very efficient air conditioning system and my son really loved the cinema style television system with extremely large screen TV. Whether a golfer or not this property will appeal to all and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wishing to experience a high standard of holiday accommodation. Just remember to charge the battery of the golf buggy which allows you to get out and about within the complex!! If we are back in this area and need to rent again we will definitely be in touch Michael - you made the whole rental experience so easy. Thank you.

Owners response: This was a great rental with good communication throughout. A pleasure to have you and hope to see you again - Michael

Four of us stayed here in December 09 for a long golf weekend (played World Woods, TPC, Lake Jovita, all great). The villa was perfect - nice and clean, four queen beds, two great bathrooms, great BBQ grill, nice open floor plan, a great porch to sit on at night. We loved it.

We stayed in the Villa for 4 nights while attending a 50th wedding anniversary. The location and view of the 18th hole was great, and even though the weekend was busy, it was very peaceful. The accommodations are very comfortable and we greatly appreciated a TV in every room. In fact we had such a good time that my brother is already planning another stay at the Villa. Thanks for a great mini vacation.

We enjoyed immensely our three weeks of villa living in the gated community at Lake Jovita in spring, 2009. This accommodation is extremely well-appointed and very comfortable for get-away living. All of the conveniences of home - and more were at our fingertips. Golf and other amenities as described are at the doorstep, and we felt most welcome and secure strolling in the quiet neighbourhoods. We will return.

This unit was next to the 18th green on the South course. We were extremely pleased with the unit and the resort. It exceeded our expectations and was very well furnished. We were there for 4 days at the end of April 2008 to watch a college golf tournament so we didn't play on the golf course but it looked fantastic.
