Default Other communities with courtyard villas

We spent a month in a courtyard villa in The Villages with our two dogs and it was so convenient to just let them out the door to do their thing. And the fencing on all sides was perfect for privacy.
My question is does anyone know of other communities in Florida and the Carolinas that have courtyard villas? I've been looking and I can't find any.

You don't like it in The Villages?

I love The Villages. My husband, not so much. That's why we at least want to visit other places.

I would guess most retirement areas have something like the court yard villa, they maynot call them the same.

What was it that your husband didn't like?

Some retirement communities allow fences.

He didn't like the heat in the summer, the cookie-cutter aspect of the homes, the old people. (He's 68)

I think it is a pretty safe bet that he will run into "old" people at the other retirement communities you may look at.

I'm 48 and might possibly think of your husband as old but I would never hold that against him. Many of our neighbors on our street are in their middle to late sixties and that hasn't kept me from buying a house here. My wife (5 years younger than myself) and I both get along just fine with all of them and we don't have problems with our age differences. I'm afraid you all are missing out on a great place to live over such trivial matters.

I agree with everyone's comments. I'm just asking if anyone knows of other communities with courtyard villas, whether 55+ or not.

No, but many communities have fences.

Go to the link I have posted. This will give you many places that have what you are looking for.
