Description from owner

This pet-friendly villa is available for rent by the month.

Monthly rentals are available for May through December 2017.

This is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom villa in the Santo Domingo area of

The Villages, about ten minutes (by golf cart) from the Spanish

Springs town square and, in the other direction, about fifteen minutes

from Lake Sumter Landing. Also within a short golf-cart ride, you'll

find swimming pools, recreation centers, restaurants, shopping, and

dozens of golf courses.

The villa is fully furnished and can accommodate your house-trained

pet (unless your pet is very large). The kitchen has all the usual

appliances: stove and fridge, microwave oven, and a dishwasher, and is

well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, and flatware. There are laundry

machines in the garage. The villa comes with wireless internet,

television, a CD player and radio, and telephone with unlimited

long-distance within the continental United States. (To make calls

outside the continental U.S., you'll have to use your cell phone or a

calling card.) There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom and a

queen-size bed in the guest bedroom. There are dressers in both

bedrooms.

No smoking is allowed anywhere inside the villa.

The back of the living room opens into a screened-in lanai, which then

opens onto a patio. Instead of the usual wall enclosure, the back

edge of this patio is a low fence, so you can enjoy a nice breeze and

a view across 100 yards of open grassland. The patio extends around

the side of the villa, where there is a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

A list of attractions and activities in The Villages would go on for

pages. Some of the highlights are golf courses (lots of them), tennis

courts, swimming pools, bowling alleys, restaurants, theaters, boat

tours, lectures, club meetings of every description, and live music

and dancing on the town squares every night. All of these are easily

accessible using the golf cart that you'll find in the garage.

Rental price varies according to the time of year. Prices are listed

below. Rent is to be paid one month in advance. We require a $500

security deposit; this will be returned if there is no damage. There

is also a cleaning fee of $100. One more little thing: if you want to

be a Temporary Resident of The Villages (highly recommended) then you

need to get an ID card, and The Villages administration will collect a

$50 fee when you go to pick it up. That one $50 payment covers two

people for the duration of your visit.

Note that in the "high season," January through March, the minimum

rental period is three months. For the rest of the year, the minimum

rental period is one month.

Prices are for two person occupancy. Occasional guests are welcome

free of charge, but full time occupancy by more than 2 people will

require additional monthly charges.

About the area

The Villages is located in central Florida, about 40 miles northwest of Orlando and 25 miles south of Ocala. Cape Canaveral, Daytona Beach, Disney World, Sea World, and all those other theme parks are within a couple hours' drive. Most visitors, though, find all the entertainment and activities that they want without ever leaving The Villages. When you stay in The Villages, you are a member of a large (really large: about 80,000 people) gated community that boasts 42 golf courses, 80 public swimming pools, hundreds of tennis courts, and numerous recreation centers that offer facilities for archery, badminton, baseball, billiards, bocce, bowling, chess, checkers, croquet, and so on through the alphabet. At the three town squares, you'll find shopping, movies, and restaurants, outdoor markets, street performers, and live music and dancing seven nights a week. All of this is easy to get to, since the major roads all have designated golf-cart lanes, and you can ride most anywhere you want to go in ten or twenty minutes.

“"A slice of Paradise"”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2013

This furnished 2 bedroom villa was all that I had hoped for. It was nice & clean with modern pleasing decor. All the amenities The Villages has to offer with a golf car, to boot! Enclosed private patio in the back to enjoy the morning cup of coffee.

“great vacation”
