We have rented various homes in Rotonda West for the past six years, but this is the one to which we are returning next year. The villa feels like a home away from home with great furnishings and amenities. The large private pool is definitely a welcome added attraction and we made good daily use of it. For the golfers in the family, it was ideal with many courses nearby. For the shoppers it was also well situated with outlet malls and regular shopping centres nearby. We also enjoyed the many local restaurants. Well done Margaret and Mike!

I wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed staying at your home/villa. What a beautiful place that you have down in Rotunda! Susanne had the place immaculate when we arrived and we did our best to leave it as clean as when we arrived. The home was very comfortable and the pool was wonderful just what we had hoped for. We had a wonderful vacation and would like to thank you for letting us stay.
Truly a wonderful Villa

We stayed for one week with our two children ( 11 and 8 ) and as soon as we arrived in the Villa, we all felt releived. It is as nice as all the pictures. Super clean, lots on linens that we did not have to bring. Everything for the beach, and what about that pool. Rotonda is also well situated. Boca Grande beach and Siesta Key or a must see. Thanks a again for your Villa, we had a fantastic time there.

We have stayed at a number of villas in Florida over the last 15 years and this is by far the best. The villa is very well situated, quality furnished and immaculate throughout, the owners have made some thoughtful touches to make it a home from home. The large south facing swimming pool was well used and is very private overlooking a wooded area.
There are a number of very good restaurants nearby, and some wonderful beaches, the beach at Englewood is a shell collectors oasis and the quiet town and beach at Boca Grande is well worth a visit.
Great Villa - Great Location
Tracy, Jeff & family, Elora, Ontario March 2011
Weve just recently returned from our wonderful holiday in this beautiful villa. This home is very lovely, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The pool area was perfect for our family of four including two young children. We were able to maintain the pool heat (we opted to pay for the heat for our week in March) at a perfect temperature and our 7 year old spent at least 3 hours a day swimming. We had fantastic weather for the week. We enjoyed dining out under the lanai for lunch and dinner every day. The beds (king in the master) were very comfortable and we enjoyed the luxury of the master bathroom. The location is wonderful allowing us to make the 15 min. or so drive to Englewood beach every morning. Most importantly, communicating with the owners of this home was most enjoyable. They sincerely made every effort to make our stay enjoyable from the original booking to the follow up e-mail. They genuinely are invested in making your holiday a fabulous one. We would definitely recommend this home as 5 star accommodation and we certainly would stay here again.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in your home. You even ordered up PERFECT weather for us. Now, thats going above and beyond. We absolutely love the fact that its so private...no neighbors to the south or west. Being able to relax on a vacation is what really makes it great. Were regular visitors to the area, so we knew our way around and visited our favorite restaurants. Thanks again!

This is a lovely home, beautifully decorated and maintained. It is in a very quiet residential area, amongst other attractive properties. A particular feature, and one that attracted us, is the pool area which catches the sun all day, even in winter. It is quite private and has a good size deck and pool large enough to swim properly in. We found booking the villa and all aspects of the rental arrangements straightforward and dealt with promptly. The property is very close to 4 golf courses and several good beaches are within a 30 minute drive. We would recommend this villa to anyone seeking a quiet Gulf Coast location.
