Description of the The Villages vacation villa rental
This beautifully decorated 2 bedroom 2 Bathroom home is located in one of the most desirable Village neighborhoods.

The kitchen is complete with everything you'll need to prepare and serve meals. (If you choose not to cook...there are so many wonderful restaurants in The Villages to try out) The Living room offers plenty of comfortable seating including a comfortable rocking chair if your entertaining friends & family or just enjoying your favorite television shows on the flat screen TV.

This home comes complete with a BBQ grill & WiFi internet. With the Village resident ID card you can use any of the 29 executive golf courses with no greens fees.

"it's a beautiful day, everyday!

April 8, 2016

The villages is a great place to spend the winter. The lifestyle is very active, people are friendly and welcoming. The weather in Feb. was cool in the evenings and morning but warmed up most days into the 70's. March was quite a bit warmer. There is something for everyone. The feel is that of a small village even though it is very large. If possible find a place in the center of the villages making traveling north or south much easier. We are definitely going back!
