7 years this month we purchased our first home in TV! It's a great place to live!

We will own 8 years in November. First as snowflakes, now as snowbirds.

We bought our first Villages home in 2007. We had a lifestyle preview, returned to Canada, and bought a house from an Internet Listing. Best decision we've ever made.

Been here five plus years moving in the fall of 2007 from Maine. What a difference from there to here. Loving the Sunshine State.

Default 15 Years This Summer

We moved from Maine in August of 1998. There was a dirt rotary where the Savannah Ctr. would eventually be. That was as far as development had progressed at that point. Major entertainment was held in a tent on Spanish Springs, at Hacienda Center, and Church on The Square. (Almost all in the church were free shows). We were thrilled to have 5 executive courses to play and 2 family pools where we could take our grandchildren. The model homes were in Palo Alto and Hacienda. Oh, the changes in 14 1/2 years! The growth has been so exciting to watch and I wouldn't have missed this for anything.

Full-time resident. Put $ down a day or two after Hurricane Frances [Labor Day weekend 2004], completed the Street of Dreams process in mid-October. Closed here 01/24/2005, actually moved in a month later!

Never regretted a second!

13 years since February2000. Met my husband here and we watched 9-11 together and agreed that life is too short to wait around, not knowing your future. We got married 3 weeks later October 2001. Watched the start of "Shock and Awe" war together. Watched Target shopping center go up along with 466 and Lake Sumter Landing.

Love this place.

Do you remember the old cars to get a drink before the drink huts were built ?
