The villa was exceptional! Beautiful, spacious and very clean with modern furnishings and appliances. it was in a lovely quiet area, ideal for rest & relaxation. We found though there was a lack of information about the area i.e. area of interest, good eating places etc. Apart from that a thoroughly lovely villa to spend our holiday and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We enjoyed a lovely 3 week stay in September/October. Villa was excellent value for money - had everything you would need for your stay and was in an attractive, quiet area a short drive from restaurants and beaches. The villa was one of the nicest on the road in our opinion and was not overlooked at all around the pool area - only by a couple of bobcats that came by one day ! What a treat that was. The only negatives would be that the pool was too cold for us - the pool man said it would improve but it didnt so half way through the stay we mentioned it to the agent and he turned up the heating so after that it was fine. Wish we had done that earlier. Also, I would warn people who are easily bitten to take plenty of spray - I was bitten terribly. Otherwise it is a highly recommended villa with great service and communication from the owner.

I made my booking not knowing much about the area having stayed in and around Orlando and Miami on my frequent visits to Florida. Oh what a surprising find it was to have such excellent accommodation amongst a typical American community with superb beaches and adventure within a short drive. The accommodation description does not do it justice it is as described, set within a nice community with friendly neighbours. We walked and or cycled (3 provided) in the area and always encountered a smile and greeting. The villa is beautifully laid out with 3 large bedrooms and a double single. It is was exceptional clean and had a well organised kitchen and pool which was indeed not overlooked at the back or to either sides. The furnishing and fittings were of a very high standard. It was a pleasure coming back after a days outing to the beaches, boating or outings to the shops etc. You can tell this is someone home and a lot of thought was given to the style of furnishing decor etc. getting to the villa was not difficult the directions were accurate and once you got your bearings it was quick to get about to the shops beaches etc. I would most certainly consider booking this villa again on my next trip to Florida and would highly recommended it as somewhere to unwind and rest whist enjoying the beaches, rivers, shopping, golf, cycling nature walks etc. my only other comment would be the add on for use of the wi fi should be offered as part of the base cost as oppose to an additional cost.

Really thought that this amazing villa deserved a better review from us. First of all, this villa is ideally located for those who prefer privacy but can still go out and about to do many things. The quality and decoration is a very good standard. We stayed in the second large on suite and this was really nice. Once we worked out how to use the air con system every thing was fine. The pool is excellent but on some days it was just to hot to sun bath...but trips to Englewood beach and boca grand provided that much needed sea breeze. This is a excellent villa and we would book again. If there was any advice from us please do not book your hire car with www.rentalcars.com. They are brokers and we did not get the prepaid satnav system with the car and the car hire company they used sold us a phone tablet with GPS and this did not work properly and was a waste of money. We did get a small settlement from the car hire firm but it should never have given us the stress on holiday. Other wise we had a great holiday in florida and will return again.

Stayed with you for the fourth time in November, the new twin bedroom looks great, our girls loved the room! the new TVs in both the master suites were much appreciated,both so thin too. The weather was lovely and warm and we enjoyed time in the pool. Spent a day at Miromar Outlet Mall and got all our Christmas shopping done at half the price we would have paid at home, thanks again we'll be back next year...
HI, Stayed for the third time in early November 2009, some more great improvements, love the new tlle in both master suites and the new bedroom carpets are a delight. Thanks for the recommendation about Farlow's, a great place to eat! We'll be back next year!
Wow, we stayed here about two years ago, the property has been fully refitted, there's now a plasma TV in the den, boradband internet with wireless, the floor has beautiful tile throughout except the bedrooms and the whole house has been repainted, what can I say but fabulous, we've booked for November. Thanks
The villa is in a very peaceful area and particulary suitable for children in a woodland setting. There are other houses nearby, within 50 - 100 yards. There are two bicycles and tennis rackets that can be used on the nearby tennis courts
About the owner
The villa is our own personal property, we bought it a few years ago as a bolt hole for some peace and quiet. We are both professional people working for multi national companies and hope, like us, you will enjoy our lovely house.
