We are an English family living in the Midlands. We have owned our villa for 5 years and really enjoy visiting Rotonda.
It is becoming our home from home and we hope to spend more time there in the future.
The Owner purchased this villa in 1994
We have used our Florida home for both our family and our friends. We use Rotonda as a base whilst visiting other areas of the USA. For example we have started our trips in New York, Washington and New Orleans and driven down for a stay at our home.
We also use it for our annual golf tour and with up to eight fellow golfers have played over 30 courses in the area.
We love the restaurants, beaches and the enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area. We are far enough away from the hurly burly of Miami and Orlando to appreciate this corner of Florida.
We recently had an opportunity to stay in this wonderful home, and we thoroughly enjoyed that experience. The layout is very user friendly and the lanai is exceptional; well-furnished to accommodate several people with a wonderful pool and an outstanding view. On our arrival, I contacted the property manager for some assistance with the lanai doors and Robert arrived quickly to resolve the problem. The owner had authorized improvements such as the garage door opener and new mattresses, and responded with his appreciation for some minor housekeeping items that we identified. He and his wife clearly love this Florida escape for their family, and we consider ourselves fortunate to share that and look forward to our return in 2015.
Nice & quiet location. Interesting views of golf course & pond. Nice pool & hot tub. Dirty lanai. We could not recommend this house unless you have a lot of money to waste for sleepless nights in terrible beds, disgusting pillows and a very high tolerance to allergens such as heavy dirt, awful dust and bad mold in all showers. You need a very low vision not to see all the dire needs of TLC., maintenance and the filth. The old stained dirty dark green rugs, wall to wall, stops you from seeing the crawling bugs. All the window coverings are in bad shape. Windows and doors are very dirty. Toilet seats are disgusting.From baseboards to door frames to light switches, everything is filthy. No supply of anything; laundry soap, paper towels, toilet paper or cleaning products...Unhealthy air ducts/vents are caked with dirt, ceiling fans blackened by dirt,same with all the appliances. All furniture are stained and scratched. All the very cheap cupboards are dirty. The garage with no automatic door opener is full of garbage.This house has not seen a real decent cleaning in YEARS. We would never recommend this house for children or even our worst enemy. We had no choice to stay there after discovering the condition of that house. We complaint to the management company , they knew about it , and told us that the owner never pays for a REAL in-depth cleaning. It was our first filthy vacation rental. We cleaned for 2 days.Terrible 9 days for very expensive renting. Never again. But what can you do? You are at the mercy of these owners/company.That FANTASTIC villa is only in the owner's head.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our three month stay in your Florida home from January-March, 2013. The million dollar view overlooking the pond to the 5th green on Long Marsh Golf course from the lanai is spectacular.
