Property Details

Updated: Jun 27, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, Den , 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Your accommodations are like a five star hotel!! Nice, really lovely. You will not be disappointed.

My Home is perfect for two golfing couples, a family reunion, or a special romantic retreat ! Truly a unique home that is absolutely lovely. You would LOVE my home. I promise. There is a fireplace in the Great Room and Two big tables. One seats 10 to12...the other 6-8. The Counter dividing the kitchen from the Great room has woven leather on Bamboo bar stools and they match the chairs around the piano and Glass Safari game table. The walls are painted a yummy cappuccino color and is soooo welcoming.

There are 18" glass sliders (That totally disappear into the walls) leading directly to the golf course and to the lanai, pool, spa area (extra charge for heating the spa) which also has a built in commercial cooking area with bar stools around it too. I just added a 12' by 10' georgeous gazebo and furnished it with tomato red sunbrella cushioned furniture....a loveseat, two lounge chairs, each with an ottomon , also a sofa and coffeetable and a zebra outdoor rug. Just wonderful for cocktail hour or to watch our beautiful sunsets. There are also two new thick, lucious sunbrella sun lounges by the pool to match the gazebo furniture. Nice....really nice!

The outdoor entertaining area has a small gas firepit with 6 chairs around it and a big red umbrella There is also a raised umbrellaed bar that seats 6-8 on bar stools. The pool is small but on two levels. Master has a king, guest room queen and den-guestroom sleeps 3 on queen pull out and and comfortable couch. Kitchen has commercial stove and a bamboo table and zebra chairs. My golf cart is yours for your visit and has 2 seats. There is a cobbled front courtyard with a small fountain and an iron table for 4 that gets the morning sun. . Cleaning fee for each rental period is $100.00 Jacuzzi heating $20.00 per heating for daily and weekly guests.

I'm running a June and July special...$750 a week plus $100 cleaning and tax. Such a deal! A whole house on the golf course with a golf cart and a pool too!

About the Owner

Hello,

Mmmmm what to tell😃!! I am an active, industrious, creative widow living on my teachers retirement. I began renting my home to my wonderful "Yankee" and,European, and Canadian neighbors to pay my fees and taxes since I lost one half of our income when my husband died. I am a retired elementary school teacher who stays busy!! It has been a wonderful experience and I've never regretted it one bit as I've met fabulous guests and my home has always been well cared for!!

Not what was expected, but very nice.

My wife and I rented Patty’s home for the months of February and March 2016. The description and photos on the VRBO site shows a three bedroom high end home with excellent outdoor facility.

For the most part this was as described although it is a two bedroom with den and the home is cluttered. The Safari Décor was very interesting and of good quality. The beds were very comfortable all linens were of high quality and in abundance. The master walk in shower was large and lots of product available if needed. The kitchen had every size of pot, dish and appliance for preparing any meal. The pool although not large was very nice with a good size hot tub. The gazebo and furniture was great and we made good use of the BBQ.

The not so good news is that the house requires considerable maintenance and/or cleaning for numerous items. Some of these that had to be fixed while we were there were TV, Internet, telephone, washing machine and stove element, so theses should not be an issue anymore. The outdoor water features need cleaning and in general the maintenance of the outdoor landscaping. We moved a few outdoor furniture items that were broken to the garage. We understand that the pool is leaking and the skimmer cannot be used so there is some debris on the pool surface. There is very little available space in closets and vanities as much of the owner's personal items are in these areas.

It seemed that all that could go wrong happened during our stay. Patty does have cleaning and maintenance service contracts in place and they came very quickly to correct the deficiencies and cleaning issues when she called them.

Although the above are not serious issues there needs to be more effort to ensure that the place is clean and in good repair to ensure the renter has a worry-free stay.

We have to say that Patty did everything she could to make our stay comfortable under the circumstances and we did enjoy our stay.

Gorgeous house! Fantastic location! Loved the hot tub! Pool was small but fun. Huge birdcage for sitting outside and watching the golfers go by. The golf cart was a real nice extra, but the straps that hold the golf bags were not secure and we ended up using bungee cords to keep the bags from falling off. Patty (the owner) supplied everything we needed. The only real downside is there is a lot of clutter in the house. All the closets are full and there was one empty dresser drawer in the master bedroom. This home was a short golf cart ride from shopping and two of the Town Squares. Patty is a very nice woman. If you don't mind living out of your suitcases this home is a wonderful get away to experience!

Owner's Response: Hello....thank you for your input. I sooooo appreciate your taking time to tell about my home. Iris a fun place to spend some special days with your love, or your family or with your golfing friends! The safari theme lends itself to relaxing moments. The the golf side, lanai, pool and gazebo are purrfect for sunsets , cooking, and swimming and cocktails! I appreciate your comments about the drawer space. The master has a BIG 5 drawer empty dresser and a secretary and bathroom with 5 more empty drawers. It is the guest bedroom that only has one big drawer ( main dresser) and two small drawers empty (bedside). I will rectify that and apologize for any inconvenience!

Wow!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have never had a more enjoyable, relaxing, and comfortable vacation. We felt right at home, had absolutely everything we could possibly need, spent the days hitting golf balls, working out at the rec centers, shopping, and simply relaxing by cooking dinners and eating at the outdoor kitchen in the lanai. To end the perfect days, we relaxed in the heated spa before retiring to the extremely comfortable king-size bed. The golf cart was a real treat; we really did not ever have to use our car unless we simply wanted to, as the golf cart paths led to anywhere and everyehere there was to go. I plan on trying to buy this home from Patty as my new primary residence!!! Patty was the greatest hostess ever and a new lifelong friend!

Location

From the Owner

You should rent my home because it us soooooo comfortable, situated in a great neighborhood, and is close to two town squares, a restaurant, golf course, tennis, and is on a golf course with a great well furnished lanaii with a pool, spa, and outdoor cooking area! Kids like it because the wooden bridge and duck pond is soooo close ( just past clubhouse on cart path) and they an feed the ducks and take great photos there. Also I live on a cul de sac and it's safe for children!!!

Notes:

  • The Villages is a unique golf cart accessible community with lots of entertainment nightly (live music. restaurants...outdoor bars and dancing...lots of happy hours. There are many golf courses in The Villages and...a golf pass is available for reduced rates on the championship courses or "free" nine hole par three courses for a cost of $50.00. per rental...good for two occupants. A guest pass is free and you still get a somewhat reduced greens fee...but not quite as much as if you do the whole $50.00 thing. If you want guest passes, e-mail me the name, birthday, and address of each occupant and the passes will be waiting for you in my kitchen You are about 1 1/2 hours from Disney...The Atlantic Ocean...or Gulf of Mexico....or a bit farther to Kennedy Space Center. Orlando Airport is about 1 1/4 hours and for Tampa Airport allow an hour and a half. The two town squares have quaint shops and lots of activity abounds everywhere in The Villages.
