Review for: 3 bedroomed Luxury Lakeside villa near Gulf Coast beaches

"It was an absolute delight to discover this villa. The spacious and intelligent layout, comfortable and elegant finish with so many thoughtful extras made our stay extra special. The pool overlooking the lake was the main highlight for us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and return. The Rotonda is a quiet residential area and the villa is beautifully set in a very attractive part of it. The coast here is superb, every beach as perfectly lovely and peaceful as the last... but that pool, Jacuzzi and hot tub were hard to beat! It is well placed for several attractions in the area... we even drove across to Miami, but stayed overnight to make the most of the visit. We especially enjoyed: Sanibel - the Thriller and the Edison Ford estate, Sarasota - the Mote aquarium and Ringling museum, Englewood with its surrounding beaches and deep sea fishing. But there were so many things on our to-do list that we missed because the villa itself was so enjoyable! Loved every aspect of it! "




BEACHES
If you love visiting the beach you are in the right place as the coastline comprises a series of keys or islands. In effect, giant sandbars, which have matured into a chain of islands running along the entire length of the coast. High- rise hotels are few in number and instead there is a mixture of small motels, small apartments and private residences set in lush vegetation With its clapper board houses, pristine white beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and its old world charm it really is like stepping back in time. Take a sunset boat ride with Grande Tours and spot the dolphins.

SHOPPING
There is excellent shopping in Englewood, and you are sure to find everything you need locally. For food, the Publix supermarket is only minutes away and open until very late at night and 24 hours at certain periods of the year. They have a vast range of food and wine and a deliciously inviting delicatessen. The Winn Dixie store is also nearby and they have a superb fish counter..........and you can have your lobster steamed, ready to eat! They also have a Pharmacy and Bank facilities.

Port Charlotte has a new shopping mall, the Port Charlotte Town Centre. Many a satisfying afternoon can be whiled away in here should your Bank balance allow it! The most renowned of Sarasota’s shopping areas is St. Armands Circle, an island of exquisite boutiques, restaurants and galleries. This park-like circle is home to over 100 shops and restaurants, which, it has to be said, are generally pricey (observe Sarasota’s seriously wealthy pull up in their chauffeur driven limos!) however, it is wonderfully atmospheric in the early evening to wander around and can be combined with a trip to Siesta Key’s white talcum-powder sand beach

RESTAURANTS
If, like us, you love dining out, you will have come to the right place. Renowned for fresh local caught seafood, there is a vast choice of places to eat. Every kind of cuisine is catered for from Continental to Japanese. Many restaurants are at the water’s edge, portions are huge and, importantly, inexpensive, so that eating out really is a pleasure! Make sure you take the short boat trip to Palm Island Resort Restaurant one evening. Palm Island is a private community with a lovely beach – which us ordinary mortals are not allowed to use!

For golfers we are right next to the Long Marsh Golf Club.


There are boundless places of interest to visit nearby including attractions, museums and cultural opportunities. Apart from the beaches, the boat-trips to islands and the wonderful shopping, the region abounds with State Parks where this wonderful sub-tropical Eco-system is being preserved. These parks usually incorporate nature trails, boat tours, canoe rentals, and those on island have, of course, mile upon mile of sandy beaches with great shelling. The wildlife to be enjoyed includes pelicans, egrets, pretty scarlet cardinals, red-cockaded woodpeckers, raccoons, bobcats, alligators, manatees, bald eagles, and the now sadly rare Florida black bears and panthers (though we don’t see many of these last two in our back yard!).

We know you will enjoy your stay in our villa and the fall in love with the surrounding area. If you want a truly special holiday contact us now.

The property was excellent, everything was as described and we needed for nothing. No better place to relax, sitting in the jaccuzi looking out at the wildlife in the lake. Great beaches nearby and places of places to eat.

Of all the places we have visited in Florida this had to be the most relaxing and peaceful. Everything was close by, great restaurants, beautiful beaches and main roads still within easy reach should you wish to explore. The villa was very clean and well maintained and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Thanks so much for renting us your lovely home. It was a very clean and well decorated home. Management company was very helpful with pool and spa instructions. Very quiet and confortable location for us. Really enjoyed the pool and spa. The lanai furniture was very confortable. We found the second bedroom mattress was soft and lacked support and the clothes dryer (slow to dry) and dishwasher(noisy) maybe could use updating.
Owner reply:

Thank you for your review. There was a problem with the vents to the dryer, whilst this guest was there and that has now been rectified and fixed. The dishwasher is less than 12 months old and was purchased brand new but our Property manager is investigating the "noise" issue although we have had no other comments.We have ordered a new bed for the second bedroom.

This was a beautiful peaceful luxurious retreat in the sun. The villa was absolutley wonderful with a great pool and relaxing jacuzzi looking out onto a creek with visits from numerous kinds of birds and wildlife. It was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for our relaxing holiday. The beaches were only 10-15 minutes away with shops and restaurants a short drive also. Thoroughly recommend it to family and friends and would be more than happy to return again in the near future. Many thanks Jill

A very good sized villa, set in a peaceful and nature setting. Easy to travel to other areas in the gulf. Golf is right on the doorstep as well as relaxation sitting by the pool watching the birds and the aligators. Excellent time had here.

THE MOST PAINLESS TRANSITION EVER. THE KEY WAS IN PLACE, THE PLACE WAS CLEAN, IT IS A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE WITH A GREAT VIEW OF THE WATER. THE POOL WAS PERFECT AND THE HOT TUB WAS HOT. MY COMPLIMENTS TO JILL AND THE SYSTEM SHE HAS SELECTED!!I WILL BE LOOKING FOR THE SAME HOUSE NEXT YEAR!
Jill, Cant believe that 2 months have gone by. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The weather was wonderful the whole time. Undoubtedly the best weve ever had in Florida. The villa is looking good with the redone pool deck and the lawn has come back very nicely. Hugh did his final walk-through and we got the deposit refund from Pat. Thanks very much for making it so convenient. As always Pat and Hugh were a pleasure to deal with - helpful, friendly, responsive. They certainly helped make our stay so enjoyable. We hope your year is going well. Were already looking forward to coming back next January. Best regards to Ian. Gene & Sharon Whitehorn
"Home away From Home" We have stayed at the Villa seven times. It is an experience that we look forward to every year. The owner and management team are very attentive and only a phone call away. Over all this vacation is a pleasurable one as you have the pool and hot tub and all the other amenities at our disposal. The location is ideal. Great shopping, dining and natural beauty all around.
Hi Jill We just wanted to let you know we had a really lovely, peaceful and relaxing stay in your beautiful villa. The outlook over the lake and golf course was just perfect! We saw all the wildlife it’s possible to see. It’s quite sad to be back home, we do love the Rotonda and Gasparilla island and never tire of it! Thanks again very much for letting us rent your lovely home. Best regards Sue and Steve Dyer and family-Vacation July 2011
Just to say thank-you for letting us stop in your villa we had the most fantastic three weeks holiday and have been back just under a week and already planning our next years holiday Katerine Ford and family August 2010

Superb property, well maintained and with every amenity. Management company very helpful too. Would definately return.

This property is much nicer than website displays. The pool is private and overlooking a canal with a golf course. The location was quiet, yet only a short drive to shopping, the beach, or the marina. The management company made themselves available, which we appreciated, and the home had everything we needed, including BBQ and fishing rods.
Verified
We had wonderful relaxing time, pictures dont do this property justice, The lake to the rear is beutiful, and wildlife abounds. everything catered for at Villa including bikes, fishing rods, even chairs to take to beach, Add internet access for checking in for flights on line, Pine Valley Ct is only about 20 mins from Boca Grande and manasota key beaches which are fabulous, Many places to eat within short distance, However we chose to use the Gas BBQ grill and eat on sun deck, utilising the wonderful quality patio furniture. Hot Tub and pool also a great bonus. All in All TOP NOTCH HOLIDAY. Many thanks for allowing us to use such a lovely home.

Dear Jill, We have rented several villas over the years, and yours was among the very best. Everything was great. and we have already recommended it to our friends. Most enjoyable and advantageous over other properties, is the fact that there are no neighbors overlooking the pool! It is beautiful, peaceful, and totally relaxing. We had a wonderful time. My eldest daughter learned how to swim, and the heated pool and Jacuzzi were a constant delight. I'm sure that comes as no surprise to you. Best regards. Etienne Franck
