Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice place to relax. We loved our stay at Sandpiper very much. It is really a wonderful place. Most of all we enjoyed the quiet and peaceful hours in the early morning and the evening.

We would really like to come back to Sandpiper in the near future.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We stayed as a family of four for two weeks after spending the previous 9 days at Disney.
Location was great for us, it is very quiet, which is what we wanted after a hectic previous week.
The villa was very clean and everything we wanted was there. The pool was a nice large size and the villa itself is just a few steps from one of the Rotunda canals. It was nice to watch several Alligators swim passed each day, whilst taking in the early morning sun...
A car is a must, but that is probably the same with most villas. Several large supermarkets are just minutes away, and there are lots of nice local restaurants.. Either look at the folder in the villa, or use trip advisor for places to eat.
It was hard to drag the children away from the pool, but we had several days out.. Miami, Bush Gardens, Discovery Cove and Air Boat rides down in the Everglades..
Overall a great place to stay, and not hesitate recommending it to a anyone.
If you want a nice quiet relaxed stay, then this is for you. If you want rowdy local bars and shops open to all hours, then look elsewhere.

A wonderful relaxing home from home in the sun”

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Sandpiper and once again it was everything we wanted to make our holiday a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The house has everything you need to make it a home from home, including wifi for the kids and their ever present tablet devices, through to chairs for those essential visits to the gulf beaches.
The pool is great for lounging around in and for doing lengths for those more energetic. The BBQ really comes in handy for those days when you don't want to leave the pool, trust me you will have a few. Its also relaxing to watch the birds, turtles and alligators around the canal behind the house.
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, with the bathrooms close by and again very well appointed. The added touches with the computer and printer as well as the golf clubs just add real value to the holiday. I took advantage of the Golf Card and found it excellent value. The staff at all the courses are really friendly and its worth having a chat with them, they know the good places to eat and the places that are not so good. I would recommend going to watch the baseball at Charlotte Sports Park, a great evening out and a proper slice of America.
Rotonda West is a very quiet place but is close enough to some of the best beaches and state parks to make it a great base for touring the area. Or you can just laze by the pool and recharge the batteries.
I cannot fault the communication received from the owner Jill, from the point of initial enquiry through to our return home.Providing advice an being responsive to our questions made the whole process less stressful and would like to thank her for letting us use her home for a great relaxing family holiday.
I would recommend Sandpiper to anyone and will be looking forward to booking this property again in the future.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a good holiday. I just love having chill-out days by the pool watching the wildlife and doing the occasional lap to make me feel I've earned my evening G n T! Good tip about the Charlotte Sports Park; I will try this when next visiting with my son & his family.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time at this property and the third time in the area. The villa has everything you need for a stay and is well maintained, it was very useful to have some beach stuff for a change in a property. We had a very relaxing stay, so quiet and peaceful, yet convenient for shopping and the beaches. Alligators, Ospreys and herons are seen everyday. The area has plenty of supermarkets and is such a laid back community. Overall an ideal place to stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. It is peaceful and yet all facilities are within a short drive. I love just sitting on the lanai watching the wildlife in the canal early morning or evening. You almost get to know the regular small alligator and blue herons!

Lovely house with every amenity you could want

  • 5 of 5
It had been six years since our last visit to Florida and Rotunda and we have always favoured the Pine Valley area as it quiet and has lots of wildlife. This was a lovely house with every amenity we could ask for and as its backs on to the Rotunda River the wild life from Crocodiles to Osprey to Raccoons can be viewed from the lani. The extra length pool was great and for the first time in Florida we felt we could actually swim and not just have a dip. We would defiantly recommend this property it was very well presented, very clean with plentiful linen for both the beach and the bathrooms and had the added benefit of wifi with its own desk top so we could look up things like restaurant reviews, places to see and boat trips to see the dolphins play. Overall a great place to stay.

Peaceful and Relaxing - Bliss!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Sandpiper over the Christmas and New Year period and was thrilled to see a Christmas Tree was up on our arrival, we have two children and it helped to keep the Xmas feeling alive even while in the sun! The property was very clean and the facilities were excellent, the kitchen was fully equipped and the whole feel to the property was very homely. We have stayed in this area 3 times before and the size of the pool did make a difference and we used it every day sometimes many times! The surrounding area and wildlife is wonderful and peaceful and I have no doubt we will return. The owners of the property were very pleasant to deal with, they answered any questions we had promptly and were kind enough to advise us on places to visit within the area and had nice touches such as sending an email the day we travelled wishing us a pleasant stay. We would highly recommend this property and this area.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you enjoyed your Christmas break in the sun. As I type this response the snow is coming down heavily outside and I'm wishing I was sitting out in the lanai at Sandpiper!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
What a great villa. We stayed for a month, and it has everything you could need, spacious and well furnished with a lovely large pool. It is also very private as there is nothing at the other side of the Rotonda River. Absolutely everything you could want has been anticipated, with chairs and cool box for days at the beach. 2 sets of golf clubs are also provided, although we took our own. There is even free WiFi which was great, especially using Skype to keep in touch with family.

The alligators did a daily patrol of the river, although we never saw one "on shore"!

There is plenty of information on eateries and activities in the den, and a really well stocked bookcase. Car hire is essential as the villa is on a huge, though quiet, housing estate. The local Publix supermarket is excellent for all your supplies.

My husband used the bike every day, and I don't think he ran out of routes. The fishing rod was also used many times, but unfortunately, the only one catching any fish was the birds!

The golf was a bonus, we played every course many times, but decided the 27 holes on Long Marsh/Pinemoor were our favourite. We played the Palms one day and found a 15 foot alligator waiting on the 1st tee!

Dearborn Street in Old Englewood, about 9 miles away, is a fascinating place, with entertainment each week and a good place to eat.

Highly recommended villa.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Sandpiper. We prefer Long Marsh Golf Club as well although all the courses are pretty with different challenges. We have recently returned from a 5 week visit and had a memorable evening in Dearborn Street at a live blues session in an outdoor restaurant.
