Wonderful Stay at Birdsong

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful seven weeks at Birdsong.

In our view, Birdsong’s best qualities include its location and the one-of-a-kind elevated rear porch and pool deck, well furnished and fully enclosed as part of the screened lanai. The rear of the property abuts walking/biking paths around several small ponds (with gators and turtles and wildlife) which we took advantage of daily. Our grandson caught several bass including a 5 pounder less than 100 yards beyond Birdsong’s back yard.

The villa is located on a quiet street with neatly maintained properties and very friendly neighbors. We enjoyed the sun on the lanai and pool for most of the day, and the pool water temperature made it inviting even on the cooler evenings we experienced in January.

The home was very clean and outfitted with all you might need for an extended stay. Plenty of kitchen utensils, pots, pans, dishes and closets full of towels and bedding. The owners thought of everything to make our stay convenient and restful.

Andy made the booking process easy and responded to our questions promptly. What few issues arose, he addressed immediately and to our satisfaction.

The best of everything and more..!

  • 5 of 5

Birdsong is an amazing, relaxing, tucked away secret. It's welcoming energy is vibrant from the moment you step threw the door. We spent 9 fantastic days with my wife and kids and the location is perfect. Close to the most amazing beaches and islands Florida has to offer. The home is everything described and more. Well stocked and consideration for all activities your adventures heart would desire. We have been vacationing in Florida for the last 5 summers and this has been the best experience we have been lucky to have. I would recommend this experience and adventure to anyone without hesitation. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED..!

Peace and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

We just wrapped up our 6 week stay at Birdsong. The home is well stocked to provide all you would need in the kitchen, as well as an abundance of good books and DVDs. The outside lanai area is very private and quiet and the hot tub provided many relaxing evenings after long walks or trips to the golf course. The neighborhood is very convenient to local stores, beaches and golf course. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had and were a pleasure to do business with. Thanks very much for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic home to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a total of 7 weeks at songbird.The home was all of as described and more. Very peaceful and private. The neighbors were cordial as we took our daily walks. Andy (owner) was very helpful when we had a glitch on the internet. He personally called us from Boston to work out the problem. The home was large enough to have 5 additional relatives stay with us for a week. Each couple had their own bath. Thank you Andy for sharing. your home. Dennis and Carol

Peaceful Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Birdsong is that little piece of heaven on earth. We spent three wonderful weeks at the property and we were so relaxed that we felt very little need to visit all the wonderful beaches and other attractions in the area.We have been frequent visitors to the area over recent years and Birdsong is the first place that we would like to own, Andy was a very efficient and helpful landlord he was just a phone call away when the bedroom TV went wrong it was replaced within 24 hours, The villa has everything that you need for a perfect vacation, God willing we will be back next year hopefully for four weeks,

We are just about to book our third stay at Birdsong...It is without doubt the nicest villa in the area ...with total privacy...and peacefulness. There is a pretty lake at the bottom of the garden to sit and watch the sun set in the evenings..I would highly recommend this property it is very special. Helen

'BIRDSONG' - Owners: Andy and Kathy Mackenzie

BIRDSONG'S exterior was designed to resemble the original Floridian old style of architecture, with replica wooden panelling, raised front porch/veranda, railings and small pane windows. The front porch features white wicker chairs, loveseat and table, rocking chair, and is the perfect place to breakfast in the early morning sunshine......or for an evening cocktail.

The rear of Birdsong looks out onto a small lake/pond, and is totally private, secluded and bathed in sunshine all day. The secluded pool and spa catch this sunshine - keeping the water warm, but both are electrically heated in the cooler winter months. (The pool is also totally private).The pool deck comes equipped with loungers, tables and chairs for sun bathing, chilling out and relaxation!

The surrounding area is very quiet, with no through traffic. The landscaped gardens are tropical in style. At the rear, there is a small pond/lake, and a stones throw away ( but hidden from the villa) is the former PINEMOOR GOLF COURSE(closed - at the time of writing) with beautiful lakes & walks. This secluded aspect encourages wildlife, and we have been treated to frequent visits from a variety of vividly colored birds(hence our name 'Birdsong')! We have also had enjoyed seeing foxes, rabbits, squirrels, armadillos, raccoons and even a wild boar on one occasion! In fact, this area is a protected wildlife sanctuary.

After years of searching, we feel we have at last found our paradise - relaxing with a glass of wine, by the lakeside, or in the hot tub at sunset - with just the night chorus for company.

The elevated rear lanai (patio) - complete with railings, ceiling fan, table and chairs - is shaded, providing relief in mid summer, when it may become too hot during the day. At sunset, this is an ideal place for the cocktail hour and the evening meal.

The villa features a whole house central air conditioning system for your comfort during the warmer months in Florida.

The interior is furnished to a very high standard. The living area is spacious with high cathedral ceilings, and Nafco Lorraine oak flooring. Sliding doors take you onto the rear patio/lanai and to the pool. There are two spacious sofa and a comfy relining chair, complete with welcome leg rest, as the perfect place to relax at the end of a long, arduous day, and flick through the many channels on the large 42' HD cable connected TV - or just listen to the stereo or radio. Stay connected with free WI-FI for you to use for your laptop or tablet. There is also a well stocked bookcase to suit a variety of tastes.The luxury kitchen is fully equipped, and has a breakfast bar. The dining nook comes complete with a large oval table and six chairs - perfect for dinner indoors, and overlooks the secluded landscaped rear.

The master bedroom is fully carpeted and features a king size bed and 32' cable TV. A large bay window with window seating overlooks the private rear garden. This bedroom features an en-suite bathroom - complete with a large 6' oval marble soaking bath - plus walk in shower, and separate 'his' & 'hers' marble vanity sink units.

Of the two additional bedrooms, one features a large queen size bed and cable TV. The other, overlooking the front porch, has two single beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom.

Shops, supermarkets, and restaurants are ten minutes drive away, and serious shopping is just 20 minutes to the local mall! There are several superb golf courses just at your door, and the most beautiful beaches that Southwest Florida has to offer are just ten minutes away! You can rent a boat for the day and visit one of the small semi-tropical islands that abound this paradise.

The breathtaking millionaires' Gasparella Island, with its deserted talcum powder white beaches, and quaint village of Boca Grande, is just 15 minutes from the door.
