Great Villa..Great Holiday

"We had a wonderful three weeks staying in Minslake. We have found in the past that photographs and descriptions can be misleading but in your case the pictures and description do not do justice to the true experience of staying in Minslake. A wonderfully comfortable master bed, usually one of my criticisms as I am a very light sleeper, a well equipped kitchen, nothing has been forgotten, and a very comfortable pair of lounge areas. Minslake is so clean and well looked after, you and the management company must be constantly updating it to ensure the comfort of your guests.

We were looking for a relaxing holiday, a home from home, and Minslake gave us exactly that. We slept well, there were no disturbances, Rotonda is a wonderfully peaceful area and Minslake has a gorgeous view over the lake from the lanai with no neighbours overlooking the rear of the property. The lake also had regular visits from Moses, the resident alligator.

We can honestly say that this has been the best villa that we have stayed in since we first visited Florida in the early 90s, and we have paid a lot more for some of the previous villas.

When we next come to the area we will definitely put Minslake as our first choice."

Owner's Response: We really try very hard to make every renters stay a special one. It is so nice to have lovely people stay in our home and appreciate it as we do.

A Delightful Quiet and Peaceful Property

This is a beautifully presented home in a very quiet residential area. The house is equipped with everything one might need for a vacation. The decor of the house is to a high standard and it is clean and well maintained. We selected this property based on the owner’s brochure which stated the pool faced south west; in fact the pool faces north east so during our stay in January the pool area received little to no sun. (During the summer months, we imagine this might be a benefit). It was too cool for us to sit round the pool in the shade and therefore our use of the pool, despite having paid for it to be heated, was very limited. The owner has since modified her brochure, although chose not to acknowledge our email pointing out her error.

Executive Style Villa with Stunning Views Minslake is quite simply a home away from home. Furnished to a very high standard with everything you could wish for a relaxing break. The villa is beautifully kept among manicured grounds in a quiet location away from it all. The pool overlooks the lake and is very private, hours are passed relaxing while watching the wildlife. The computer/Printer is an added bonus and ideal for finding places to visit, cinema times, opening times, restaurants, events and for online check in at the airport etc. There are plenty of books, games and magazines. Beach equipment is provided with a coolbox for picnics. A couple of bikes are provided which are great, although at some of the parks you can rent them too. The villa is close to shops restaurants and supermarkets. Port Charlotte is only 20 minutes away with a Mall, Cinema and lots of restaurants. The beautiful beaches are close too. The Villa was a wonderful base to explore the Gulf Coast and beyond, we travelled to Orlando, Miami, The keys and Everglades from here easily. Tampa airport is a straight 90 minutes away. Outlet Malls are an hours ride away too for those bargain shopping trips and a little quieter and more relaxed than Orlando. We love this Villa so much we won't stay anywhere else! The management team are fantastic and on hand should you have any problems (although you probably won't need them!) The inside is kept immaculate and never fails to impress us when we arrive, its a much welcomed site after a long journey. If we have to pick one fault it would be no BBQ, although there are so many restaurants to try and you may not have the time to use it!

A piece of Tranquility

Left on 01/22/2013 for a stay in December 2012 My Wife and myself were looking for a villa over Christmas.Somewhere with a water view,without being too busy. Minslake filled the bill 100% It was clean,bright,Expensively furnished, easy to get around in.All your home comforts were available, including free internet access if you needed to message friends,We only used the one bed, it was a very comfortable one,something that you hope for if you stay at any home /Hotel but don't always get.There was a Good sized TV In the lounge, and plenty of Dvds for a quiet evening at home.We never needed anything that was not to hand. Even the clock in the day room is a pleasant experience. .The pool was superb,very clean and easy to get in and out, young or old alike.Ideal for all kinds of swimming, games for kids etc. no fussy plants waterfalls,or other items to bump into, just a quality pool, that even in the winter was 80 degrees.Even the garage was immaculate with pool toys, beach chairs, etc.Another good thing about this home we noticed was the lack of noise from the air-con.It just ran in the background and did its job.No waking up in the night when it came on or off.Altogether a very pleasant experience.We have been to many homes in this part of Florida and this is one we can without doubt recommend.We will certainly go there again. I'm sure I could write forever about the qualities of this home,don't just take our word for it,try it for yourselves.I guarantee you will not be disappointed.The owner too is very approachable,If she can help at all she will.If you are at all in any doubt as to if this review is not 100% genuine, you are most welcome to ask for our Email /Phone number

Our stay at Minslake

  • Submitted: Aug 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This was our first return to the Rotonda since 2004 after escaping Hurricane Charlie by just 24 hours. This time we were blown away by the villa location and its quality interior. We'd searched for a lake view. We had that view in spades and it was all to ourselves. The neighbouring villa was set back and not visible from the pool area and the double lot meant nothing but trees to the right. It was an idyllic private setting to laze an afternoon away in the sun. The interior was as good. It was well maintained, light, airy, designed to maximise the lake view and had comfortable beds and furnishings. We knew the Rotonda well, and this was up there with best villa we'd stayed in, and way above the average ones. It stood out by being someone's home and not just a rental income. Extras provided were great. The bikes were good for sightseeing the Rotonda ... but only early morning !!! Too hot later. Detailed directions made TV and DVD use idiot proof, or at least we could switch between them without asking our son and technical advisor back in the UK. A 30 minute trip, driveway to beach, returned us to our favourite beach on Gasparilla Island and just under 20 minutes took us to the closest beach at Engelwood. North from Engelwood up Manasota Key took us to a couple of good beaches with facilities, both well worth a visit, but we kept returning to Gasparilla Island. The parasols, beach chairs and cooler provided made those trips easy and comfortable. To celebrate our last day we ended up being one of the first cars over the new Gasparilla Bridge and were snapped on the contractor's camera. If you go that way get your camera ready for the Ospreys fishing from the telephone poles alongside the road. If you go to the Rotonda you won't go wrong staying in Minslake.

Rotonda, South West Florida is located near beautiful Cape Haze, Boca Grande & Englewood on the Gulf of Mexico. This relaxing area is the perfect spot for enjoying a laid back, quiet vacation. There are outdoor activities for every adventurer. You can jet ski, parasail, fish or charter a boat from one of the area’s marinas. There are numerous golf courses and nearby there are many beautiful beaches all within 10-15 minutes.

Pine Valley has the newest golf course on Rotonda, opened in January 2008. This is rumoured to be one of the best golf courses in the Charlotte County area and Minslake is ideally located to this as you can view it from across the lake at the same time as wild life of otter, osprey and many others are often seen on Rotonda whilst in the inter-coastal you will nearly always see dolphin and even occasionally a manatee. For the nearby beaches on Boca Grande and Minnesota Cay, as well as the beaches on Palm Island and Don Pedro Island .
