    Sue M from Mentor, Oh recommends this vacation rental

    This patio villa suited our needs perfectly. The home had a very comfortable feel about it, was impeccably clean, nicely decorated, and had plenty of linens and towels. The home was convenient to everything we wanted to do. We loved the location! Brownwood was a 12 minute golf cart away, the Sarasota Practice Range was 12 minutes in the opposite direction. Groceries were available in either direction. The Bradenton Rec Center and pool were literally down the street. We walked each morning to buy a newspaper. It was a great way to start each day.

    The house would benefit by having a broiler pan in the kitchen. We ended up going to the local kitchen store to buy some cheap broiler racks since there was otherwise no way to grill anything. And, there was a light burned out in the kitchen ceiling that we reported to the management company but the bulb was never changed. The kitchen would have benefited by having more light. We had a slight problem with the TV when we first arrived but that was corrected immediately after we reported it.

    I would definitely stay in this home again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. We can't say enough about how central the location is to everything.

    Enid W from East Dummerston, VT recommends this vacation rental

    This is a solid, clean, quiet and well maintained house. The cooling system worked perfectly in the heat, all appliances worked well. There were plenty of towels, linens, huge amount of closet space, spacious rooms, high ceilings and nice decor; comfortable lanai (sun in early AM only, so by noon, lanai was in the shade).
    We had some interactions with the property management company, and all questions were dealt with in a timely manner; owner immediately upgraded the cable service (from local channels only) when we requested it.
    The only comment I have is the location. I am a walker and the only place to walk was on the sidewalk along any street. Unfortunately all the beautiful areas are in golf courses and off limits to non-golfers. With no golf cart, and very few places to park the car by the few walkways open to the public, our walking was confined to a small area.
    Lake Sumter Square had very nice boardwalks to walk on; Brownwood (closest to this rental), is still being developed; Spanish Springs is nice, but about 25 minutes away.
    If golfing is your entertainment of choice or if you love The Villages, this is a good location and a very nice house!
    If we could have split the review-we would give the house 5 stars and the location 2 stars!
