City Guide for The Villages, FL

The motto here is "Floridas Friendliest Retirement Hometown." Really gets you excited to move, huh, recent college grads?

The Villages in Florida is neither a city nor a town; it's a census-designated place (CDP) covering portions of three counties and consisting of a group of retirement communities. If you listen to people like Governor Rick Scott or people who live in The Villages, it is a piece of paradise for anyone over 55 who likes golf, tennis, and a fast game of pickleball (Is there such a thing as a fast game of pickleball?). The master-planned community is filled with baby boomers and other seniors who just want to live among people like themselves. Its a like a well-to-do cult of retirees or wannabe retirees who are all convinced that retirement is fun. Pickleball, anyone? See more

What to keep in mind when looking for pet friendly apartments in The Villages, FL

Renting pet-friendly apartments in The Villages should offer peace of mind and convenience for our furry friends. It’s crucial to find an apartment that’ll work for both you and your pet. Before signing a pet-friendly apartment, take your time to study the layout and ask plenty of questions.

Some pet-friendly apartments in The Villages may request a pet deposit or only accept certain dog breeds. You should also consider if the floors are hardwood or carpeted. Hardwood may be easier to clean-up fur and a mess but could mean your neighbors below hear the tapping of your dog running past. An outdoor balcony can also be ideal for a pet who needs some fresh air.

Consider the neighborhood of any pet-friendly apartments in The Villages. Are they near a dog park or a vet? You should also research the rates of dog walkers in your area. It may be less expensive to move to a nearby neighborhood with a lower pet deposit, a better layout for your pet, and cheaper services.
