Host a driveway party! Put the pink flamingo in your yard the day  of, and neighbors will stop by 'round sunset with a chair and a cooler.  It's a fun way to meet new people!Great location, in the southern side of The Villages, close to newer shopping and dining options.

Location is everything! This quaint patio villa is close to the Brownwood, The Villages newest Town Square, where you can enjoy nightly free entertainment and shops galore. There's also plenty of family-friendly activities, and many, many recreation centers w/ pools. You’ll love the Crabby Cottage because of the included golf cart, the high ceilings, the location, and the decor.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pet fee applies).

We stayed two weeks at Laurie's house and her place was perfect for us. We felt like home right away. Everything we needed was there to use. We could even park our car in the garage. Her house is located in the Villages, a huge 55+ community, but our family felt welcome. The Villages is a beautiful, quiet, and safe place. With our guest pass provided by Laurie, we enjoyed the amenities of the community center. (pool, shuffle board, and more). We also had the pleasure to freely use her golf cart to cruise around the Villages and to go shopping. We also took advantage of the live intertainment and restaurants at some of the Square of the Villages. The drive to Orlando is about 75 minutes, but is was ok for us. We definitely recommend Laurie's place.

Crabby Cottage was great, nothing too fancy within the home, It was very clean and ready with relatively new furniture. we spent the entire time within the Village area, driving around in the Golf Cart and listening to some outdoor live music and walking around. It was a great little getaway for us.

Crabby Cottage was just what we needed... a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath home. It was clean and organized and easy to access with a code given by Laurie to open the garage door . I loved the front porch I had morning coffee there. The ceiling fans had remotes to change speed. The kitchen was beautiful. Thanks so much we will be back :)
