About Raja & Henrike Beurer

We are a family of four from Germany. In summer 2013, we made our dream of our own home in Florida come true.

Raja & Henrike Beurer purchased this villa in 2013

Why Raja & Henrike Beurer chose Rotonda West

The location of the Villa is ideal! The pool area is facing southwest, so this guarantees sun for almost the whole day. You will not miss a single sunset during your stay. From the pool you have a great view of the garden and the canal with its diverse wildlife. The best beaches for bathing, collecting seashells or shark teeth, building sand castles etc. are just a short ride away by car. The next shopping facilities (Publix, WalMart, CVSPharmacy...) are also just a couple of minutes away, as well as restaurants. The neighborhood is very well kept and the Floridians are friendly and open.

What makes this villa unique

Very suitable for children: toys, pool fence, baby crib, high chair. Only a couple of minutes to the next beach.

The rental is very quiet and well appointed.

  • 3 of 5

Quiet, comfortable and well appointed property. Nicely laid out. Upon arrival there were many weeds in the garden areas & landscaping. I talked to the manager and she had them treated promptly. Window in the front room came out of track when opened upon arrival and could not be closed all the way nor locked. This was not repaired while we were there. My husband and I are both terrified of snakes, which we told the manager. After a few weeks there we saw 3 snakes IN the pool/lanai area; one in the pool itself. Manager came and disposed of them. Had a screen with small holes in it replaced and had openings outside the garden in the lanai covered. We heard scratching/gnawing in the attic. Manager immediately had two openings to attic covered and set traps. We didn't hear any more after that. On the day before we were to check out we saw 2-3 more snakes in the lanai. We immediately packed up and left. I am told Florida has snakes but we have never encountered any other times we've vacationed there.

The owners and the manager were very nice to deal with. Had it not been for the snakes we would consider renting this unit again.

Owner's Response: Dear Colleen, thanks for your feedback and rating. As we already told we are sorry about the snakes, but that's wildlife in Florida. Animals always find a way if they want to no matter how good and hard you try to keep them out. We know that our local management and we did all our best to make your vacation nicely. Wishing you all the best for your future

Beautiful home, pool

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the villa. The villa was comfortably decorated and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook although we mostly ate out. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool and lanai with its mix of sun and shade. We also enjoyed using the bikes. The managers were available for any questions. The area is full of things to do including nearby beaches, bike paths, walking trails, golf, and tennis. Grocery stores are convenient and there is a large selection of restaurants. A great place to stay for families or the retired.

Has it all!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in the villa from 12/27-1/2! We were hoping to find a place that we could feel comfortable and not out of the way from all of the things to do in this area. This was perfect! When we arrived, the house was so clean and the lay out was great to let us spread out. The kids enjoyed the heated pool every day we were there, even in the coldest day! The location was nice and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. The villa was stocked with just about anything you need for the kitchen and laundry room. We also took advantage of the bikes, fishing pole and all the pool toys. All amenities were in great condition. The renters we super easy to work with and we felt that they genuinely wanted us to enjoy their villa and we did! We will definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

Superior for my daughter's family!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations for my dau's family with two children - a 13 year old and a 2 yr old. Having a baby crib and the safety fence around the pool were ideal. They even used the bikes and went for a bike ride one day.

Close enough to lots of great beaches to enjoy and a number if nice eating establishments. Favorite beach was Boca Grande!

Perfect accommodations! Thank you so much!

Lovely, up to date, welcoming place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We have been enjoying the wonderful Rotonda area for many years and this year was no exception. The villa is of a high standard, is well equipped & very welcoming. The kitchen is full of everything you would need, the lounge is very comfortable & the study area with printer an added bonus. The owners were very helpful making booking very easy. The manager was easily contacted and made us very welcome even left flowers for us on arrival- a very nice touch! The area was as great as ever with fab beaches and great restaurants.
