On entry to the property, you will find yourself saying "WOW", as the property certainly has the "wow" factor. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and as we arrived quite late, the outside was very well lit, which was good as we could locate everything easily. The house is really well equipped, real home from home feel to it. Really comfortable furniture, slept like a log every night we were there. Everything was how it had been described in the brochure we were sent by the letting agents.
We've only been home a couple of days and already we are missing having breakfast on the table under the covered patio area and then having a leisurely swim in the pool, does life get better than having a swim every morning in the sunshine. The pool was well maintained, with the pool maintenance people calling and doing the relevant checks twice during our two week stay.
Great location for the beaches at Englewood (about 10 - 15 mins) and Gasparilla Island (again about 10 - 15 mins or so), also if you want to go shopping, you can go to the mall at Port Charlotte, or the outlet malls at Ellenton (Bradenton area) or Miromar (near Fort Myers) both just off the I-75. Couple of Walmarts close by to the house, the nearest is 6 miles from the property. Sarasota is about a 45 - 60 minute drive away, well worth a visit. Depending on the time of year you go, you can go up to Tampa and take in a baseball game Tampa Bay Rays,(or you can go watch the games at Port Charlotte), or an Ice Hockey game @ Tampa Bay Lightning or maybe a football game @ tampa Bay Buccaneers and if like us you are from the UK, then it's something you won't have experienced very often, if at all.
One of the great things about staying here was how easy it was to contact the owner/agent. We were really impressed by the ease of making the booking, much better than when we have visited Florida before.
One of the other things about the Rotonda area, is how peaceful and tranquil it all is. We were so relaxed at the end of the holiday. We are already planning on booking again, we were that impressed.
Overall, we were really happy with the accommodation and I'm sure we'll go there again. Great location, everything is easy enough to get to, be it shopping, beaches or sports events.
