The Real Boss
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
The Villages, Florida
We are a B&B and have 2 bedrooms available, each must be reserved separately. The bathroom is private IF THE OTHER ROOM IS NOT OCCUPIED. We are located in the middle of the Villages. We have over 70 swimming pools, 56 golf courses, about 35 recreation centers, tennis courts, etc. Unlimited activities, 3 town squares with free entertainment, mostly live music every night at each town square. We have lived here for 9 years so we are very knowledgeable about the area.

Our community is a golf cart community. We have about 150 miles of roads that you can drive a golf cart. We also have over 100 restaurants that can be reached by golf carts.

Even though we live in a very active community, our neighborhood is very quiet and laid back.

If this room is reserved, please go to our other room at: www.flipkey.com/properties/8828501

Don and Mary were very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay very much. They saw to our every need, including refrigerator space and use of their kitchen. Don even parked our golf cart indoors when hail was forecasted!

Each village has its unique characteristics and activities--enough to keep one busy for weeks. We were comfortable here, and our hosts were very accommodating.

In The Villages we have over 100 restaurants and many other in the local area from chain restaurants to locals.
We are only about an hours drive to all of the main theme parks from Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld, Legoland and many others. We are about 45 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and about 50 miles from Daytona Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

The favorite way to get around The Villages is by golf cart. Although my cart is not for rent there are several places where you can rent them for under $25.00 per day if you rent them for the week.
We have several shopping centers with just about anything you would want.
Every Thursday and Saturday we have Farmer's Markets.
We have three movie theaters with each having several movies going on at one time. We have top entertainers appearing quite often, plus our own production companies, there are three centers where there is live entertainment and dancing from 6 to 9 each day and every day throughout the year (no charge).
