The pool area is big and has loads of furniture in shaded areas, we sat out and dined by the pool on several evenings. The pool itself is fabulous and we loved cooling off in it, whilst watching exotic birds come and go from the nearby trees and the gators and turtles popping their heads up in the nearby waterway. Exceeded our expectations. The owners were so helpful and even sent us local booklets before we arrived so that we could start to plan our stay. Cant wait to go back!

SUPERB VILLA & LOCATION
We have stayed at this lovely villa which surpassed our expectations. The owners have thought about everyone needs and the villa was very clean and well equipped.
There is a Games Room with every game that a family with children would want including bikes, fishing rods etc etc.
The location is superb with various golf courses around this up market estate for those who like this sport. There are first class beaches approximately 10 minutes away by car.
Its lovely to sit on the lanai and watch the colourful birds and wild life come and go.
Would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
Excellent communication from owners.

Really beautiful house in a lovely location.
Ideally situated for visiting beaches and exploring the Gulf Coast, but to be honest we preferred to stay around the villa, golfing, fishing and taking advantage of watching the wildlife from the lanai. There is a large pool at this house which overlooks the waterway & there are plenty of sun loungers & chairs for everyone. The lanai also has a dining area & a further seating area with large comfy wicker chairs where we enjoyed a morning coffee.
House was excellent, very clean & very well equipped with everything we needed. There were two living areas plus the games room at this villa which suited our family (when we did go indoors!) as the kids chilled on the leather settees in the den watching TV or in the games room while we chilled in the further Lounge which overlooks the pool.
All bedrooms were well equipped, nicely furnished and had huge comfy beds.
We have stayed in Florida before & rented properties but this house was a true gem to find as it is certainly a home from home. We will certainly be returning!
Lots of information was at the villa about the area & communication from owners was very good, they were always available for our endless questions & sent lots of information by email & also posted visitors guides to the area which were really helpful to plan our stay.
Our flight was delayed on way over so we contacted the owners & management company directly to let them know. Was really impressed as they arranged for lighting to be on when we arrived in the middle of the night & also offered to pick up any food essentials for us!

On first arriving at the property my wife and I looked at each other as if to say, this cant be it ! Unkempt lawns( unlike all the others on the approach) stained and dirty exterior of the property, front porch, windows and front door very dirty. However, once inside the property is rather pleasant with most things you could want from a holiday villa. Very spacious and well equipped. Large rooms well furnished. Large well equipped kitchen. Good TV channel choice Wi Fi included. Uncomfortable master bed with roll together mattress and creaky base whenever you make the slightest movement. Most of the pillows were sweat stained and yellow, not nice. The pool was starting to get coloured and cloudy after a few days so we called the management company. After a few more days it got worse so we called again and the pool man turned up with lots of chlorine and excuses. After that it was fine. Sorry to sound like the hotel inspector but the first impression made us feel that way.
Dont get me wrong, its a lovely house in a nice quiet area, handy for all the beaches, fishing and cities with all the facilities you would need, sitting out the back by the pool in the evening cooking on the ( uncleaned ) BBQ watching the birds, squirrels, fish and little alligators was very please and relaxing. it just felt a little unloved
Photos of the house show bushes/shrubs to left of pool area to screen you off. These are not there now. No chairs to take to the beach, we bought our own.
If everyone staying has to pay the £75 cleaning fee, then the owners need to take issue with the management company who employ the cleaning team. I did inform them and took photos should the owners wish to see them.
Would we stay there again ? Probably if it was looked after a little as it really is a good place. Sorry if I sound a bit moaning, but if Im paying over £100 a night, I want it right.
I appreciate that living in one country and owning a house in another, that the owners are somewhat at the mercy and word of their management company. Maybe this review may encourage them to chase them up ?
As you know from our emails over the weekend, we are really shocked by the comments as we have not had negative feedback before.
We have taken this very seriously & are in contact with the management company to find out what went wrong on this occasion.
I'm aware that in the last few months, Rotonda West Association have removed the non-native shrubbery from vacant lots and therefore this affected the land to the side of our villa. I believe the dust/dirt that this has created was responsible for the condition of the outside of the villa and whilst the property is jet washed twice yearly, this was unable to be done as prior to your visit, there was a three month stay at the villa. The jet spray was therefore overdue and will now be rectified.
The bed & quite a few of the pillows were new, being replaced in May last year. This is being checked and replaced again if necessary along with the pillows and other items.
Regarding the missing beach chairs, we leave an inventory of items which should be at the villa and also leave personal belongings which we hoped would help visitors make the most of their stay. I have requested that this inventory is checked more thoroughly to make sure this does not happen again. I'm assuming the chairs got broken and were thrown away but unfortunately it does not appear that this was reported to myself or the management company, so I couldn't take action to replace them. We're aware that some items will not last forever & replacement is expected every so often, but unfortunately, some guests don't like to report items being broken, even if they are not responsible, for fear that they would incur a charge.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do appreciate your feedback & as discussed, hope that you will return soon.
