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!

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.
