winter vaction in Florida/Rotonda 2011/2012
Dear Joy and husband!
We have been able to spend 3 wonderful weeks in your house in Rotonda and we will definetely try to come back. It was very well maintained and clean, the kids enjoyed a really wonderful pool and getting out ervery morning to pick the oranges for the freshest and best juice ever!
We had each meal outside and could watch lots of birds from your lanai: Anhingas, Egrets, Herons and even wood storks. And with the bikes it was just great to go around and see turtles, amardillos and enjoy the different palm trees, bushes and flowers.
We love this place, because it is NOT filled with lots of people, huge hotels at the beach and endless attractions. Here you still find a bit of the old, charming Florida, with wonderful beaches, jumping dolphins at the sunset, countless sharkteeths to collect, breathtaking canopy drives, friendly neighbours and still lots of things to do.
Why not visiting Mary Selby Botanical Gardens (wonderful) or doing a shark-tooth diving trip (exciting!) or visiting the planterium and museum in Sarasota? Maybe a visit an Orange plantation? Or getting impressed by thousends of different airplants and bromelias and orchidees in a huge nursery in Venice?
And for sure see the science "hands-on" museum for children close to Venice(excellent).
It was also very nice we could go with the bikes to the tenniscourts and the playground in Rotonda.
Thanks again and you have been very helpful. Was a pleasure to be there!
