Well...you asked for it. The rest of the story is, we had the boat up for sale, but in February, it sank. There were high winds on Valentines Day, which caused a loss of power, which resulted in our heaters to cut off. Sea strainers froze, allowing seawater to rush into the boat. (By the way, we are in The Villages while all of this is happening). This all happens in the early morning hours. The bilge pumps probably kept up with pumping the water out until the batteries were depleted. My buddy calls me in the morning and tells my "your boat is down." Insurance didn't want to cover. After months of wrangling, we finally did get them to cover our entire loss. That was the interesting story.

That IS an interesting story. My cousins live on a boat currently in Bradenton. My interest was peaked. What a story. At least there were no injuries.

Mike & Rosie---Village of Poinciana. Villager's for 18 months & love it here. Educate yourself about The Villages, the developer, CDD's etc., and you'll like it, too.

Joe and Barbara moved to Madison Villas in Mallory Square January 2007 from Lindenhurst, NY. We love it here and are doing things that we never imagined would be a part of our lives. We have great neighbors and all get along well. Great place to live.

I have always been under the supposition that you either live IN the Villages or you don't !!!
Me !! I live in Chatham and have my own personal train. ;D ;D

Maybe I used the wrong words..We have a house in the villages that we visit a few times a year... Not full time yet I hope I used the correct words this time... :

My sister and I bought in the Villages , Duval,and closed on January 11, 2007. We came back in March and May to buy furniture, fans, and stock a complete household. We live in Hamburg, New York and are still working. We plan on retiring in August of 2008, God willing, and will probably be "Snow Birds" for a few years. I have heard about the vinyl siding problem with Duval homes, so I plan on having it inspected before the year is up. We are coming back for a week in October, then count the days to retirement. Any Duval residents having problems with the vinyl siding? Is the Village Property Management helping to fix these problems? I am curious. Janet and Carol

We're in the "younger" Village of Duval. As I travel throughout TV, I definitely get a sense of the difference in various villages. I think the realtors channel people into specific villages. Not exactly stereotyping, more like accommodating. It's a good thing!!
I think the idea of each Village having a page is a good one.
Great, great site here. Keep it up. I support and applaud all of you connected with TOTV

JanetandCarol - I too live in Hamburg... over near the SouthShore Golf course in the Marrano countrywoods development.. have done alot of homework on TV and even visited a couple friends who respectively were renting and living in TV. The friend who lives there , lived up here in Williamsville... she's been down there for almost 2 years and loves it... I'm trying to decide whether to buy new or buy resale. Probably will not get down to TV until retirement (4Q08?).... also trying to decide on particular town - I liked Sunset Pointe, Liberty, Duval, area when I was down. Guess I want to be south nearer the more newer golf course (Havana) and the future ones! Have a contact in TV for real estate (Leo) but am trying to find an 'outside realtor' to cover all the bases. (ps - before she passed away my wife owned and operated the Irish Angels Gift Shop (corner Main and Buffalo)... hopefully you had the time to shop there!)...
