Beautiful, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Have just arrived back to the UK after spending 3 weeks in your lovely villa, which was just so perfect in every way. Very peaceful and we enjoyed all the wildlife, quite a few alligators in the lake, lots of fish jumping in and out, or maybe the alligators were chasing them. Beautiful different kinds of birds big and small, loved watching them all.

Your villa was spotlessly clean and had everything you could wish for, a real home from home, we have stayed on Rotonda many times but your villa is our favourite so far, enjoyed every minute and would definitely go back there.

Peace and Tranquillity on a Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

The photos did not do the house justice. Spacious, clean with outstanding panorama across a lake and golf course.

Well equipped with a good sound system and TVs although why you would want to stay inside to watch TV would be a mystery to me. A pleasant surprise were the golf clubs and the plethora of bicycles. A joy to cycle around the local roads and the golf courses (after play has finished for the day) or simply to walk around the quiet roads. Nighttime was especially pleasant because of the virtual blackness looking out from the Lannai. We enjoyed it so much we are returning this fall.

Beautiful house in a lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning house with a beautiful pool and Lanai offering superb views across the lake. The house is beautifully decorated, absolutely spotless, very spacious and well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The house is situated in a tranquil area with easy access to all beaches and tourist spots, particularly Boca Grande which was our favourite. There is a good selection of shopping, restaurants and cafes all within easy driving distance. Also designer outlets only an hour away which was a big hit with all of us. We hired kayaks on Boca Grande and explored Charlotte Harbour which was fantastic as we saw dolphins and manatees. There was so much to do, all in all a fantastic holiday and we will definitely return.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We've just got back from a very enjoyable week at this villa. It was very clean and beautifully decorated and furnished and extremely well equipped. It's in great location and was a good base for us to explore the nearby gulf coast beaches and there are plenty of good shops and restaurants nearby.The villa is in a very peaceful setting close to a lake and the excellent Long Marsh Golf Club. The heated pool was fantastic and much appreciated by our 3 year old boy. We wish we had stayed for longer. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is not just a fantastic rental property but a beautiful home. We have stayed here many times and the owners have thought of everything to ensure their guests have the most memorable holiday. The house is furnished to a high standard, fully equipped and very well maintained. It is located in a enviable position overlooking the lake with golf course beyond. Watching and listening to the wildlife that visit regularly is a highlight. It would be easy just to sit by the pool within the fantastic large lanai and not move away from the house but the beaches nearby, especially at Boca Grande are stunning. Shops and restaurants are all within a short drive with plenty of choice. I would highly recommend this superb holiday villa and the owners are always a pleasure to deal with.

Vacations at Rotonda West

  • 5 of 5

This year was the 3rd. year we have stayed at this wonderful Villa. In a very quiet peaceful location, over-looking both water and the Golf Course. The Villa is both extremely well located but yet very accessible to all the local facilities - supermarket, restaurants, Wallmart and 5 Golf Courses, all within 10 minutes drive !!

Rotonda is also a very convenient location to visit other areas of the Gulf Coast- Naples, Captiva Island, Boca Grande, Venice etc..

Most of all the villa is just a very enjoyable place to be. It is both very well equipped and comfortable, with the feeling that you are very privileged to be staying in such superb home.

We will look forward to returning next year !!
