About Sandy Howlett

My husband and I live in Rochester, New York. He is a farmer and grain trader and handler. I have taught school for 32 years. Our grown children live close by. We all love to vacation in Rotonda, FL.

Sandy Howlett purchased this villa in 2013

Why Sandy Howlett chose Rotonda West

We chose this exquisite property because of all the excellent upgrades. The pool and spa have lovely views of the Rotonda River. This home will provide a wonderful retreat from Rochester winters once we retire.

What makes this villa unique

spa, private, wooded lots on both sides of house, volume and tray ceilings, lots of upgrades.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

There is not a single negative thing I could possibly try to scrounge up about this property. From beginning to end, it was everything we could've imagined.

First, the owner allowed us to check in a day early, since our travels did not take as long as we anticipated, free of charge! Also, she was accommodating enough to allow us to add 2 extra nights to the end of our week (yes we loved it that much!).

The cleanliness and all around appearance of the home inside and out is stunning and gave the home a cozy and luxurious feel. And it was totally affordable. All the pictures posted do not even do it justice! Not to mention (and this may change in the future obviously), the two lots on each side of the property are vacant, therefore, the mini forests were the only neighbors we had! Loved the privacy!

My boyfriend and I visited with my 1 year old daughter and were thrilled (and relieved) to have the child safety barrier around the pool. It made us feel safe and less worried that she could accidentally access the pool without our knowledge.

I cannot express enough how friendly and accommodating the owner, property manager and a few of the neighbors we met are. The property manager even stopped by when he saw us sitting out on the front porch to check that everything was up to our standards and told us to call if we needed anything at all. My daughter even approved and ran to give this complete stranger to her a giant hug when he walked up. Haha she is never like that! One of the neighbors would even stop over to let our daughter pet their black lab. She was so excited whenever they would be taking him for a walk.

I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone inquiring about properties in Rotonda West. The only time I would steer people away would be when we plan to rent it again on our next vacation!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dollar Villa is beautifully furnished and decorated, extremely comfortable and very private and peaceful. Close to beaches, shopping and tons of dining options. It's our second stay here. The home owners are a dream to deal with and the home is always in pristine condition when we check in. The pool and spa are so nice there's no reason to leave the house!

Outstanding, well appointed villa in Boundary Blvd

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sand Dollar Villa for the last two weeks in January and really enjoyed our stay. The villa is beautiful, very well maintained with all modern appliances including bicycles and even beach chairs and parasols. We have stayed in this area before and found the villa exceptional, very quiet and relaxing.

Our favourite beach is Boca Grande and we enjoyed eating in the Mango Bistro in Dearborn Street and Croissants French bakery Venice Beach and Sisters in Boca Grande.

Shops, Movie Houses, theatres all in close proximity and lots of beautiful beaches.

Very impressed with the service provided by owner from initial booking to prompt return of deposit. We would definitely stay in this villa again, and look forward to visiting this little piece of paradise. Bill & Phyllis Burrell N. Ireland.

This home was the perfect place for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful and supplied our needs well. We had never vacationed together before, but felt that with the two sides of the house, it worked extremely well. We had privacy when we needed it, and yet had room to be together as well.

We found so many things to do. We did each take our own bikes, so never used the bikes in the house. Loved the spa and the pool. An extra bonus for us was remembering all the good times we had when we visited our parents in Rotonda! Also loved reading the guest book for ideas and added a few of our own.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Ignore my last post as I thought I was reviewing the condo we stayed in the days preceding this stay. The home was spectacular. Five adults and 2 children enjoyed the home and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. Rode bikes in the neighborhood which was delightful. Grocery stores and shopping nearby. The power went off and we had an issue that the stove did not come back on. Even after call the property managers, they had us flip the breaker switch but did not come back on. They came over right away and here the switch was not fully engaged. They were very helpful. Would definitely recommend to others.
