About the owner: We are from Michigan and have been married for 28 years . We fell in love with The Villages after just one visit! The multitude of outdoor activities such as pickleball, biking, walking, swimming, golf, wonderful nightly live entertainment, dining and friendly people left us in awe of the amazing community (and that's just a small list of activities to do while there). We love our home in the Villages and the wonderful community of people; we think you will too!
Why this property? Our home has an amazing location! We're minutes from 2 new recreation centers (Clarendon and Lake Okahumpka) and less then a 5 min golf cart ride to the town square of Brownwood which has nightly live entertainment, dining and shopping. Just a short ride to Sawgrass Grove, as well. It's truly one of the most convenient neighborhoods to be in.
And our home has been described as a "Home" versus a "Rental Property". We hope you'll feel right at home.
Guestbook comments from the host:
The house is beautiful! I need to tell you how nice it is to wake up in home rather than a rental! Thank you guys for the support
This home was extremely well equipped, everything you may need was available. The home was spotless, comfortably set up, and the hosts were always available if needed. This was a great find, and would highly recommend.
Thank you for sharing your home with us! We were very comfortable. Great location and fun stay at The Villages.

Dear Phil & Lin,
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Your house is perfect. We walked through the door and instantly felt at home.
We will definitely recommend your place to many of our friends.
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home.
Thank you & good luck.
This was one of the best vacation rentals we’ve ever stayed in. Phil and Lin are such wonderfully kind people whom make you feel like family. They are understanding, helpful and quick to respond in any situation. Their home is well stocked, cozy and even more beautiful than the photos. Over all, if you want a home away from home I recommend you stay with Phil & Lin.
BEST HOLIDAY VACATION EVER! STAY HERE, YOU WON’T REGRET IT!
Beautiful, Comfortable and a Great Location!
We spent a month at Phil and Lin’s home in The Villages. Communication with them was wonderful. They answered every question promptly and provided us with a binder full of information on the Villages. We felt right at home from the moment we walked into the house. It was clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we could possibly need. You won’t find a better location also, close to shopping, grocery stores and Brownwood Square. We had a great vacation, and hope to stay there again some day,

I had the pleasure at staying at Phil and Lin’s place and let me tell you…. It was amazing! It is brand new, sparkling clean, super comfortable and had everything you might need. Phil and Lin were great at communicating every detail we needed to have a great trip. Easy in and out with no hassles.The Villages were just as amazing! So much to do and so much fun! The activities, restaurants and shops were top notch. My favorite was the live music at multiple locations every night and day. A dream come true! I can’t wait to stay at Lin and Phil’s place again next year and every year after that. Thank you Phil and Lin for having a great place, being greats hosts and offering your amazing place for others to enjoy!
