We spent a total of 7 weeks at songbird.The home was all of as described and more. Very peaceful and private. The neighbors were cordial as we took our daily walks. Andy (owner) was very helpful when we had a glitch on the internet. He personally called us from Boston to work out the problem. The home was large enough to have 5 additional relatives stay with us for a week. Each couple had their own bath. Thank you Andy for sharing. your home. Dennis and Carol
Birdsong is that little piece of heaven on earth. We spent three wonderful weeks at the property and we were so relaxed that we felt very little need to visit all the wonderful beaches and other attractions in the area.We have been frequent visitors to the area over recent years and Birdsong is the first place that we would like to own, Andy was a very efficient and helpful landlord he was just a phone call away when the bedroom TV went wrong it was replaced within 24 hours, The villa has everything that you need for a perfect vacation, God willing we will be back next year hopefully for four weeks,

We are just about to book our third stay at Birdsong...It is without doubt the nicest villa in the area ...with total privacy...and peacefulness. There is a pretty lake at the bottom of the garden to sit and watch the sun set in the evenings..I would highly recommend this property it is very special. Helen
What a pleasure it was to spend time at Birdsong at the end of a very trying period - mentally and physically.
From afternoons at convenient uncrowded beaches, to evenings enjoying the fine fare at local restaurants, or just relaxing beside the pool or by the lake ...a really pleasant time... much appreciated ...Thank you Arthur and Linda.
We have had two fantastic holidays in the wonderful 'Birdsong'. We are now planning our third trip in July. The house is beauitful set in a wonderful location and the garden is delightful. Congratulations to Art and Linda for doing such a great job. Roll on July!! From the Murray family.

'BIRDSONG' - Owners: Andy and Kathy Mackenzie
BIRDSONG'S exterior was designed to resemble the original Floridian old style of architecture, with replica wooden panelling, raised front porch/veranda, railings and small pane windows. The front porch features white wicker chairs, loveseat and table, rocking chair, and is the perfect place to breakfast in the early morning sunshine......or for an evening cocktail.
The rear of Birdsong looks out onto a small lake/pond, and is totally private, secluded and bathed in sunshine all day. The secluded pool and spa catch this sunshine - keeping the water warm, but both are electrically heated in the cooler winter months. (The pool is also totally private).The pool deck comes equipped with loungers, tables and chairs for sun bathing, chilling out and relaxation!
The surrounding area is very quiet, with no through traffic. The landscaped gardens are tropical in style. At the rear, there is a small pond/lake, and a stones throw away ( but hidden from the villa) is the former PINEMOOR GOLF COURSE(closed - at the time of writing) with beautiful lakes & walks. This secluded aspect encourages wildlife, and we have been treated to frequent visits from a variety of vividly colored birds(hence our name 'Birdsong')! We have also had enjoyed seeing foxes, rabbits, squirrels, armadillos, raccoons and even a wild boar on one occasion! In fact, this area is a protected wildlife sanctuary.
After years of searching, we feel we have at last found our paradise - relaxing with a glass of wine, by the lakeside, or in the hot tub at sunset - with just the night chorus for company.
The elevated rear lanai (patio) - complete with railings, ceiling fan, table and chairs - is shaded, providing relief in mid summer, when it may become too hot during the day. At sunset, this is an ideal place for the cocktail hour and the evening meal.
The villa features a whole house central air conditioning system for your comfort during the warmer months in Florida.
The interior is furnished to a very high standard. The living area is spacious with high cathedral ceilings, and Nafco Lorraine oak flooring. Sliding doors take you onto the rear patio/lanai and to the pool. There are two spacious sofa and a comfy relining chair, complete with welcome leg rest, as the perfect place to relax at the end of a long, arduous day, and flick through the many channels on the large 42' HD cable connected TV - or just listen to the stereo or radio. Stay connected with free WI-FI for you to use for your laptop or tablet. There is also a well stocked bookcase to suit a variety of tastes.The luxury kitchen is fully equipped, and has a breakfast bar. The dining nook comes complete with a large oval table and six chairs - perfect for dinner indoors, and overlooks the secluded landscaped rear.
The master bedroom is fully carpeted and features a king size bed and 32' cable TV. A large bay window with window seating overlooks the private rear garden. This bedroom features an en-suite bathroom - complete with a large 6' oval marble soaking bath - plus walk in shower, and separate 'his' & 'hers' marble vanity sink units.
Of the two additional bedrooms, one features a large queen size bed and cable TV. The other, overlooking the front porch, has two single beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom.
Shops, supermarkets, and restaurants are ten minutes drive away, and serious shopping is just 20 minutes to the local mall! There are several superb golf courses just at your door, and the most beautiful beaches that Southwest Florida has to offer are just ten minutes away! You can rent a boat for the day and visit one of the small semi-tropical islands that abound this paradise.
The breathtaking millionaires' Gasparella Island, with its deserted talcum powder white beaches, and quaint village of Boca Grande, is just 15 minutes from the door.
