Welcome! to the Garden Villas at Gator Trace Association page
All owners in the Gator Trace Community belong to two different Associations: The Gator Trace Master Property Owners Association (POA), as well as the Association where you own, here: Garden Villas Homeowners Association (HOA). The POA and HOA fees must be paid separately (see Home page for Master fee instruction). Quarterly fees for 2024 are: Garden Villas HOA $1,500/quarter plus Master POA $356/quarter = $1,856/quarter or $618.67 monthly.
The Garden Villas HOA as of January 1, 2024, is self-managed. Effective January 2, 2024, we have these payment processing options.
