Default Where the Buffalo (used to) Roam

I vacationed at TV last September, when they started pushing dirt around at where the Buffalo roamed. Came back 2 mos. later (during a business trip nearby), and a gazillion Villas were up. WOW! Still some space to go, as of 2 mos. ago.

Are they selling units there, or is it just for persons trying out the Preview program? That's a lot of previewers at any one time.

Anything besides Villas there?

Any info on the area where the buffalo roamed would be appreciated. Does that village have a name?

area is Creekside Landing (or something like that); all to be used initially for lifestyle preview and perhaps longer term rentals outside of snowbird season....will be operating as of Feb 1.

approx 180 villas and 22 designer homes.

Default Buffalo Gone

I had company in December. The first question they asked was "Where did the buffalo go?"

I still really miss the buffalo. I realize they never "belonged" to us, the residents. Still, it is sad to see them gone.

Default Buffalo (former) area

Thanks for village name and details.

Of the 22 designer homes, what models are they? Price range?

GL,

Designers all have siding rather than block/stucco.... I believe they are the equivalent of the gardenia/Lantana models, ie. 3BR and approx 2,000 sq ft.

These will rent for $175/night on the preview program ... includes golf cart, bicycles, some meals, golf etc.

The 2 BR villas rent for $150/night, same perks.

These rental rates are per couple, high season (i.e. thru 4/1)

These houses are NOT for sale, only for preview...perhaps for longer term rentals outside of high season.

Dang, 07, you do gather information quickly and reliably. That time you were in MD outside of DC, you weren't with the NSA, were you???

Muncle,

Haha...government yes, spy no.

I had called the sales office about a month ago inquiring about the preview program and the new cottages. As we talk to friends back north about how wonderful the Villages is, we try to encourage them to do the preview (rather than staying with us!!!). It really is a great deal, gives them some privacy, and sure makes life easier for us.

The devil is in the details....

Thanks for the compliment (I think...)
