Wow - what a great old ad and piece of history. Thanks for posting. $65.00 per night LSV at the Hacienda Hotel. Limousine picked you up at the airport and when you arrived the amount you paid was exchanged for the same amount of "Village Dollars". Free complementary breakfast. The Alameda 2B/2b priced in $mid-thrties. Designer homes in the $low-fifties to $low-seventies. Want a pool? Add $9,000. Those were the days.

Fun seeing Chi Chi Rodriguez (who is 83 today) as a young man playing golf.

I was very surprised that this youtube ad has only 400+ views!

Loved it but curious about what happened to the family. Lots of names and faces that I didn't recognize.

I'm guessing late 80s, but I will defer to more accomplished historians. It was obviously right after they crossed 441 and before the golf cart bridge or Spanish Springs were constructed. It appears that there was a more even split of responsibilities among Mr. Schwartz offspring at the time. It would be interesting to know the backstory of how everything evolved into Gary and his children as the "Developer".

For those of us interested in the history of The Villages I have to wonder why the Morse family hasn't made videos like this readily available for viewing? I would have to think there has to be many more stored away somewhere documenting the development & growth of TV over the years. Let's see them!
