Couple from Plymouth, United Kingdom Apr 2016

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the villa and would recommend to anyone looking to go to Florida for a holiday, the location is excellent and the weather at this time of year (April) was fantastic. The communication from Lisa, the owner was fabulous and could not fault her.

The villa has everything you would need whilst on holiday e.g. beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, pool, air hockey etc all as described in the advert on owners direct. The master bed was extremely comfortable and much needed after a full day out sight seeing. The kitchen area was also extremely well equipped.

Fabulous holiday was had by all which in our case was simply Chris n Jude, Plymouth

We were a "three generation" family group looking for some rest and relaxation after the Orlando theme parks and have to say that this was without doubt one of the best equipped villas that we have rented - ant there have been a few ! The house is beautifully located, spacious and has everything that we could ask for. The Games Room is a particularly good facility and the pool with the assorted outdoor furniture was brilliant. Lisa and Dean have paid real attention to detail and it shows throughout. The location is lovely we saw a couple of small alligators, a very friendly and inquisitive heron, turtles and a variety of other birds. We went to Bocca Grande and saw wild dolphins, collected shells there and went to Captiva Island, which was worth the two hour drive, for even more fabulous shell collecting. Would recommend The Bubble Room on Captiva for lunch and South Beach Grill at Bocca Grande.

We would certainly go back.

Wonderful villa so clean & spacious & really well equipped. In a lovely peaceful area close to some lovely beaches and local amenities. Being so close to the wildlife was amazing. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone & we are saving up to go again!!!😀😀

Family from Teignmouth, United Kingdom Jun 2015

We arrived at the villa and immediately were impressed by what we saw. The Villa is very spacious, extremely clean and has everything you could possibly need. The owners have thought of everything including Pool toys for the kids and many items for a fun day at the beach, chairs, umbrellas and sand toys.
We were blown away by the scenery and setting of the Villa. The pool looks over the waterway, where we spent many hours viewing the abundance of wildlife. Alligators and turtles made a daily appearance, along with many lizards and birds. We also spotted a few armadillos and on the last day a Bob Cat walked straight past us outside the villa!!
Englewood beach is only a 10 minute drive away and is definitely worth a visit. We all enjoyed the clear, warm sea and searching for shark teeth along the shoreline. Punta Gorda is about half an hour drive away where you can find Peace River Wildlife Centre with free entry to view many different Native Birds.
Be sure to visit the Ice Cream Parlour on the corner of Sunnybrook Blvd, the best Ice Cream we have tasted.
We would like to Thank Lisa for allowing us to stay in her wonderful villa and for all help and guidance along the way. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Villa to family and friends and we will definitely look forward to staying again in the future.

Family from Bournemouth, United Kingdom Jun 2014

This is a beautiful villa in a beautiful place. The villa layout is brilliant for families as it provides lots of different spaces, with two living areas, two dining areas- plus one on the lanai,- a lovely kitchen, a great games room and a fabulous master suite which is in a separate wing to the other 3 bedrooms. 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!

Family from Coseley, United Kingdom May 2014

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.

Great choice for a family get-together for Christmas week. All 8 of us had our own beds and noone was sleeping on a living room pullout. The home is clean. We barbequed Christmas day dinner for 15 and ate on the Lanai. The swimming pool and game room were highlights. Very nice neighborhood to walk, run and bicycle. Location is great to just about everything. And of course, we loved the sun and the beach every day. Christmas magic.

Wonderful / beautiful property Rotonda West, FL, 33947, United States Date of Stay 20 Nov 2016 Great time. The property have everything needed. Fully equipped and the owner is very nice and helpful.

Karen L Sep 2016

We wanted rest and relaxation after a hectic week visiting the Orlando Theme Parks, and this villa was perfect for achieving that goal. This is a large family sized villa with a good size pool, a spacious interior that has been well kept and very clean. Four large double / twin bedrooms, and an enormous master ensuite. The Kitchen is well-equipped, two Dining Rooms, a Lounge with TV and DVD, and WiFi that works well throughout the villa. We had everything we needed, and more, for a great holiday. The villa is situated in a quiet, peaceful community -- you wouldn't know you had neighbours. We enjoyed evenings sitting by the Pool, which is fully enclosed in a netted lanai to keep any insects and other small 'critters' away. We also enjoyed the lovely views by the Pool of the River that runs behind the villa. We saw all sorts of bird life, and 'wild life' like alligators, and a snake that slithered quickly across the road outside the property. The villa is located a short drive away from some beautiful white sandy beaches with supermarkets, like Walmart and Publix close by for retail therapy. We especially enjoyed a morning coffee and freshly baked muffin at Manatee Beans and Brews in nearby Englewood (https://www.facebook.com/ManateeBeansBrewsEnglewoodFL/) - well worth a visit. Overall, a perfect place for a restful holiday. Our family had a wonderful time. We would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to our friends & family and would return.

Colin M Aug 2016

Enjoyed the holiday at the villa! It had a great lanai for sitting out in evenings even when it rained! Very nice to see wildlife and the villa is located in a peaceful area. Nice that the master bedroom is on one side of the villa and the 3 other bedrooms for kids on the other! Nice beaches locally and good selection of restaurants in Port Charlotte not far away. Kids loved garage for games and wifi was very good and fast! No hesitation to recommend and would return.

Melanie S Jul 2016

Lovely big family villa with good size pool, so spacious inside we kept getting lost! Everything you need for a lovely holiday away from it all. 4 big double/twin bedrooms and the master ensuite was huge. Well equipped Kitchen, 2 dining areas and a Lounge with full tv dvd and cable set up. Wifi worked well throughout the property and games room provided extra entertainment value. Friendly family feel to the villa meant we were at home straight away. Lovely views from the pool patio along the river that runs behind all the properties, we saw bald eagles, a giant stork, alligators and lots of turtles as well as a number of different wading birds. Pool is fully enclosed in a netted lanai that keeps any flies away. Rotonda Estate's roads are all flat and quiet, so good for cycling and waterways extend around the estate. Villas are spread out so the area is very quiet and peaceful. Explored all the beaches along a 40 mile stretch of coast which were all good - our favourites were Bocca Grande and Sanibel. For culture visit Edison Ford Winter Gardens & Museum in Fort Myers. For restaurants Venice was best, lots in the town but also try The Crow's Nest (upstairs) at the Marina, as well as Fisherman' Village at Punta Grande for perfect sunsets over Port Charlotte Bay. All in all a perfect place for a restful holiday.

Jim W Jul 2016

Our family had a wonderful time. The house was nice and clean. Very quiet and enjoyable community. Surrounding beaches were beautiful. We would definitely stay here again!

Sam W May 2016

After going over to the Orlando /Kissimmee are for a number of years this year we decided to venture far further away and try some where different , and we are glad we did . After trawling through the Website we kept going back to this property , its situated in a lovely quite part of Rotonda and with lovely views of the waterway at the rear , many times we seen the gators , squirrels , and numerous birds . This is a south facing pool and a great place to chill out . The inside is much larger than what you think and see on the photos , the rooms are all very very clean and spacious and the master bedroom with the en suite is massive. A large kitchen with all the utensils etc are provided a very big lounge and a separate TV viewing area . We had no problems with the booking via the website and all went along smoothly , Lisa and Darren thanks for letting us have your villa we will highly recommend it to others ...Great time .
