If I've said it once, I've said it 100 times. I simply LOVE the concept of attached villas for Florida retirement living.
- There's less maintenance to worry about.
- You can lock the door and leave to travel without worrying about upkeep while you're gone.
- And the prices are lower than single-family homes.
The only problem is not every Florida 55+ community has attached villas 🙁
So I've done the legwork for you and compiled this list of several new Florida 55+ communities that do offer attached villas.
