Hi,

We are considering a courtyard villa when we finally move to TV.
Would CV owners please share the advantages of owning a CV.

Thanks for the input.

We have a Savannah and love our Courtyard Villa. The privacy is wonderful. No need to pull curtains/shades at night. Small amount or no grass to cut. The new Savannah's come with gutters all the way around the house, Ceiling Fans, and window treatments (mini and Vertical blinds) We have been here since Feb and couldn't be more pleased with our home.

I am looking to buy a CYV so that I can let the dog out
and not worry about walking him. Also like the privacy.
I visited the Villages and originally wante a house but now
think the CYV is better for my lifestyle.

Same here bought a Savannah Stoneybrooke model with the 3rd bedroom a den. This unit is 1600 sq ft and very maintenance free. It has no grass at all but uses pine or bark needles as mulch beds. It's in Hillcrest Villas part of Hadley Village right up against Havana Golf Course.

We really were pushing for a designer but just couldn't ignore this unit since we only plan on living 4 months a year. We still love our Jersey Shore beach front home and probably will never sell.

Just as Avista posted the privacy walls and lack of windows on one side of Villa making it very private. Unusual for homes being so close together but the builder and TV, have made it so that it feels wide open. Hard to believe? Check it out.

We would if we had 2 cars. When we moved to The Villages, we sold one of our cars and bought a golf cart. Now we have one car and one golf cart that fit fine into the 1 1/2 car garage courtyard villas have. The only time we use the car is to leave The Villages, or if the weather is REALLY awful. We take the cart everywhere--shopping--church--etc.

We recently bought an older CYV in Rio Grande because we fell in love with the courtyard. Beautiful plantings, low maintenance, very private, a spa ... and I could go on. Right now we will only be able to use it for 1 month a year (with a week here and there we are hoping) so we don't know how we will feel about lots of things. The laundry is in the garage for example -- right now doesn't bother me, but who knows. Actually the garage is beautiful with a painted floor and very neat and clean. Who knew it was even possible! My husband has been threatened with bodily harm if he brings in any junk -- and almost everything is junk to me.

We totally love, love, love our CV. :bigthumbsup: Our two dogs also love it. ;D
Has a small fence in back as it has a bit of a view. We enjoy the privacy and the dogs have total freedom to wander in and out. Our laundry is in the garage, but so close and handy! It worried me at first, but it isn't a problem at all.

We almost bought a Ranch (and they are very nice also) but I wanted a fenced lot. In my books, CVs are tops. lovehorse

ewstanley,

We will be purchsing a CYV both for privacy and a safe place for our dogs. While we were in TV riding around with the Sales Rep in March we asked about 2 car garages. The Sales Rep said yes there are a small number of CYV's with 2 car garages, if I remember correctly they are on corner lots which tend to be larger lots. I forgot to ask if there were any CYV's with 2 car + Golf Cart garage though which I'd love to have!

Thanks everyone!

We have a small terrier mix (Jack Russell & Westie) and think that we absolutely need a private back yard. I think that the Courtyard Villa is just what we need!

Gee, Liz, could you have picked two more stubborn terrier breeds to put together?

I'm trying to imagine a Westie jumping into the air -- guess wouldn't be a problem if you had a treat in your hand.
