Default Towns Around The Villages

I am looking forward to relocating to the Villages within a year or so. Prior to permanently moving, I would be interested in renting a small apartment in the general area of The Villages. Not being familiar with the area, I am not sure where to begin looking. What towns or communities would you suggest that I begin my search in. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

You might be better off calling the number on thevillages.com web site (352 753-6655) and set up a lifestyle visit. That way you will stay in a house in The Villages with access to all it's facilities

It is very hard to see what The Villages is like if you are staying outside of The Villages. If you stay at a place outside The Villages you won't have access to most of the things that make it such a great place to retire to.

Dan9871 has some good advice. You might also rent a villa or house from Villager.

If you really want to stay in a nearby apartment, go to Google Maps Google Maps Search for apartments near 32162

Life Style stays are short-term.

You might look at rentals within The Villages.

The closest you can get to TV and not actually be in TV, is Lakeside Landing in Oxford, FL. It's about 1 mile from LSL (Lake Sumter Landing Square). They have their own pool and are very close to Lake Miona State Park. You won't be able to use The Villages facilities such as playing golf or use the Rec Centers, but you can shop at the squares, eat at the squares, go to the movies and pay a $1 more, etc.

Lakeside Landing has a whole section of garage villas and usually they have a couple for rent. Here's one on Zillow for $1250 a month, which is cheaper this time of year than in TV. The development is on Rt 472, which is also Rainey Trail, the road that will take you right into TV next to Arnold Palmer Country Club.

Lots of modest homes available with full amenities and well worth it.

You can try Wildwood for an inexpensive rental.

I think there is an RV park on rolling acres road called Recreation Plantation. Not sure if you own an RV, but the place is close to The Villages...

Lakeside Landing is definitely not the only place you should look. There are also more zip codes than 32162.
There are apartments on 466 near Rolling acres rd, also.
I would skip Wildwood. The apartments there are sketchy at best.
