Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great week for Spring Break. The villa was a nice change from the brutal winter we were having at home. We hope to return again. We enjoyed the pool everyday and the bikes were used frequently. We grilled every night but one and the kitchen was very well stocked. This is our fifth Spring Break in the area and one of the best weeks!

A lovely, relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We have ,once again, had a lovely, relaxing holiday at this beautifully appointed house in Rotunda West.

It is the third time we have visited there and on each occasion we have had a great holiday.

The location is great for getting to lots of fantastic beaches, including our favourite place, Boca Grande where we love to go dolphin spotting. It is very convenient for most amenities and just a short drive to shopping malls full of both fantastic buys and for getting anything we need.

The house itself is very well appointed. Lots of bed linen, towels, crockery etc. are provided and everything is spotlessly clean. The luxurious beds ensure a good's night rest and set you up another day's adventures. If you decide to stay in for the day, the pool and lanai area is a lovely place to sit, from morning till night, offering comfortable loungers and a dining area if you prefer to get a little shade. Everywhere is clean and well maintained and very safe for young children.

The owners dealt with our booking very professionally and answered any questions we had. Thank you again for letting us visit your lovely Florida home.

Villa shangrila.....heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5
I would first of all like to thank the owners for all their help and advice when booking the villa. Geoff answered all my seemingly unimportant questions and was happy to supply information on the area.

This was my first visit to this part of Florida having done the theme parks previously....what a difference - could not believe I was in the same state.

There is something truly relaxing as you cross the bridges to Manasota key and Gasparilla island....it is like being in the Caribbean but cleaner.

The house was wonderful - nice to rent a house where the beds are comfortable and you can get a good nights sleep.

Everything down to the large quality towels was brilliant.

The pool area was especially spacious with plenty of places to sunbathe.

The owners have thought of everything even down to beach towels and fishing rod!

Will be coming back again....

A beautiful house and a fab holiday...

  • 5 of 5
My fourth returns this Villa and it was like the first. The nice thing is that everything had been updated....new bed linen , new sofas and updated contents.

Also everything is there...golf clubs/ beach towels/ plenty of beach accessories.

The pool as always was fabulous and great to have plenty of room around the pool to laze the days away with the occasional margarita!!!

Thanks to the owners for a great welcome and look forward to our next visit.

On arrival we were very disappointed to find that the back of the house faced NORTH WEST. We had several E mail exchanges with the owners before confirming the rental and we were assured that the rear of the home faced SOUTH WEST. We know Rotonda well having stayed there for the last 12 years and we wanted to ensure that the house was correctly orientated, We were misled by the owners and placed the rental order on the basis that we were told the truth. Facing NORTH WEST there is no sun on the rear terrace until 11.45 am and we were misled. The villa is very dark, requiring lights on in the house during the daytime. It was well presented by the agents and well appointed. How it would accommodate eight guests in three bedrooms is a mystery as one bedroom has bunk beds. This did not affect us. The pool and deck area are very nice ,apart from the lack of sun in the morning and the pool heat was a plus. We would NOT recommend this house to others and we would NOT rent it again ourselves.

Owner's Response: In the word of a very wise man...’you cannot please all of the people all of the time...’ ( Abraham Lincoln).
We have owned the villa for over 7 years and have never received any negative comments previously and have indeed had many positive comments plus return visitors on many occasions, which is the true proof of the pudding –please read all reviews.
However let’s examine these comments in detail...
1. ‘The Villa is very dark’.. the main lounge has windows/patio doors to both aspects. The family room again has patio doors and the walls throughout the villa are painted white. Comments from a previous review stated :-' It has a very spacious, light and airy interior' Review Submitted: 10 May 2012 Date of Stay: April 2012
2. ‘The house is well presented and well appointed’ – we find this is why guests come back year after year.
3. The villa does accommodate 8 guests and is appointed to accommodate these guests. This would represent the maximum and the website is detailed with the sleeping arrangements, so our guests are fully aware of this prior to booking. This did not affect the renters as they have stated in their review, so uncertain why they would comment on this?
4. ‘The pool and deck area are very nice’and ‘The pool heating was a plus’.
5. I have personally sat in the sun by the pool for at least 2 hours by 11.45. I would agree that the area of the pool nearer the house does not get sunshine until the sun crosses the roof but then you get full sunshine together with glorious sunsets.
No mention was made by the renter of the discounted golf package we arranged on their behalf – presumably this met with their satisfaction.
To summarise for a house that is well presented, well appointed, with a pool and deck area that are very nice and with pool heating as a plus, I find a rating of 1 out of 5 totally unreflective of the quality of accommodation. To confirm this every other guest who has rated the home as 5/5 would undoubtedly agree.
I am sorry the renter did not get total satisfaction from the property as this is what we aim to give our renters. I am surprised however, that the renter was not aware of this, as in November we agreed that they could store personal belongings in the property and as such they actually visited the property before they actually rented it.
But as I said...you cannot please all the people all of the time...

Great house

  • 5 of 5
The house was everthing described and more! Located in a quiet, residential area and very well equipped for couples or a family, the house was clean and well prepared. We particularly liked that some lights were put on for our arrival, as in the past, with other rentals it has been difficult finding our way around in the dark-locating keyboxes etc. The house is comfortable and well furnished with good quality bedding and towels.
The pool was sparkling clean and kept very warm by solar power.
The owners were very helpful, providing lots of information and tips about the area. They are also very professional in their business dealings.
All in all a very pleasant stay and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

Think of Florida – Mickey Mouse/theme parks/fast food & fast pace of life .....THINK AGAIN! Take a 2 hour journey south on the 75 & you will arrive in a very different and far less known, ‘alternative’ Florida. Discover a paradise with miles of pristine, quiet and unspoilt sandy beaches, warm clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico & blue skies that go on forever. This area has been called the 'Gem of the Suncoast,' 'the Heart of the Suncoast,' 'a bit of Heaven on Earth,' 'a place unspoilt by high rises and high prices,' & 'where the living' is easy,' yet it still remains one of Florida's best kept secrets. The area around Rotonda West has attractions for all: swimming, sailing, fishing, boat & jet-ski hire, snorkelling, diving, shelling, canoeing & soaking up the sun. Golf, beaches, tennis, state parks & nature reserves, exotic wildlife & bird watching, cycling, shopping & outlet malls, multiscreen cinemas and an abundance of restaurants.
