What a great home

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we booked a villa through Homeaway, and we are glad we did this. Stephen was so helpfull. When we arrived we couldn't believe what we saw, the house was even bigger then we thought, and it was wonderful. As all the others said, it has everything you need. We loved the pool, and when we had a question, we got a prompt answer. We wished we could stay longer.

Best relaxing holiday !

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in this lovely villa. The location is so private and quiet! We loved sitting on the lanai , watching the Canal.Saw the alligator a few times. The pool was great, really warm even at this time of year.
Every thought had been put into the kitchen, you could cook a banquet in it. Karin , that was truly home from home. Best kitchen equipment ever. Plenty of linens, beach towels, tea towels etc. Everywhere very clean. Master bed, new and very comfortable. Owner went out of his way to buy a new tv so we could use equipment from home, thank you again for that. Cycles a great bonus and in excellent condition . We did a lot of cycling on those long , quiet roads. Really miss that now. I could go on and on. Just try it, you won't be disappointed.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week in June having spent the previous week up in Disney area. We were looking for a more relaxing time and in a different location and were not disappointed. We have been to Florida about 12 times before and this is probably the nicest villa we have stayed in. The Villa sits on a very large plot and has a large pool deck area with lovely pool and Jacuzzi. there is a creek that runs along the back of the property and if you are lucky you will see the alligator plus turtles, fish and birds. The Villa was furnished to a very high quality and had everything we needed. The owners have put a lot of thought into what you would need for a holiday or longer term rental. The owners also supplied bicycles that can be used by guests which we used almost every day. The surrounding area was very quiet and flat so ideal for getting some exercise and exploring the area. Cycling very popular there and fellow cyclists very friendly. There is a shopping mall at Port Charlotte and a good choice of restaurants nearby. The owners were very helpful from start to finish and suggested a route from Orlando that took us down through the middle of Florida which we took and really enjoyed, much better than the main route. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which was more relaxing than the previous week up in the Orlando area and was a great base for exploring the surrounding area.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa to anyone who wants a more chilled out holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Excellent villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5
I have been visiting Rotonda since 1998.Osprey is by far my favourite villa and I recommend it to anyone wishing to visit this delightful part of Florida.This villa is certainly a very clean and comfortable place to stay but the main advantage Osprey has over the other villas in Rotonda is its excellent picturesque location.The villa is built on a large plot of land . When you are in the pool area you are not overlooked by people in other villas and you cannot hear people who on holiday in adjacent villas The neighbouring properties seem to be occupied by elderly Americans .
Situated at the end of a long quiet road the property is seperated from the villa on the left by a lawn and small wooded area which gives great privacy .There is no villa to right hand side .There is a large wooded area facing the front of the villa.The nearest villa to rear of the property is on the other side of a canal.
The pool area enjoys sunshine all day long.The sun rises on left hand side of the pool and sets on the right.
I have gone into a lot of detail about the location of the villa.The reason for this is that there are many fine villas on Rotonda but what makes this one stand out is the wonderful quiet location where you enjoy a really peaceful holiday while enjoying the great weather and facinating wildlife.

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5
We totally agree with the previous reviewers with respect to this place. The location is quiet with plenty of wildlife. We saw an alligator sunning himself on the dam several days, and it was frequently chided by the egrets and herons.

The owners are a delight to deal with, and we hope to return some day.

The area is perfect for bicycling and we biked 10 - 15 miles several days.

Three good restaurants in the area: Farlows on the Water, Pig and Whistle, and Trattoria 13.

Rotonda is the ideal place to spend a quiet holiday yet have easy access to all facilities and to some stunning scenery. The area around 'Osprey' is a nature-lovers paradise and 'Osprey''s nature diary bears testament to the remarkable range of species that can be spotted - armadillos, gopher tortoises, alligators, birds of prey, herons, egrets, cardinals, jays - the list goes on and on.

The Cape Haze area also offers plenty to do for those who enjoy beaches, golf, shopping or the arts. Locally, there are plenty of excellent restaurants, supermarkets and all essential facilities, whilst within one and a half hours drive are many other places to visit such as Sarasota, Venice, Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Islands and the Everglades.

The kitchen is particularly well-equipped and with both a formal dining area, informal/breakfast area and outside eating area, self-catering is a pleasure rather than a chore. A gas barbeque is available to hire. The main living area has a TV with video player whilst the study/bedroom 4 has a TV with DVD - ideal for families. There is also a wireless internet connection so take a lap-top or iPad and you can keep in touch with things back home whilst enjoying yourself on holiday. If you want a two centre holiday, and wish to combine a stay on the Gulf Coast with a visit to Disney World, we can make arrangements with friends who have a luxury villa in Orlando.
