Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time while staying here for 4 months. The house is located in a nice quite residential community. Great area for taking walks. The house itself was clean and roomy. Lanai was especially nice first thing in the morning for relaxing and having breakfast. The area is close to Englewood for all your shopping needs. Port Charlotte is only 20 minutes away as well. We traveled all over because the house is so centrally located. Siesta Key, Sarasota, Punta Gorda, and Fort Myers are all within an hour’s ride. Englewood Beach was very nice and great for shelling as were many other beaches. Siesta Key beach has been rated a #1 beach in the country, it has gorgeous flat quartz sands and was great for sand dollars. The owner, T J, was very accessible by email or text and was great handling a couple of very minor issues that could come up in any home. Lots of things to do in the area, especially golf. Shopping was great in Venice and St. Armand’s Key. Two great restaurants close by were Farlow’s on the water and Landy’s. Our only disappointment was that it took a month to get our security deposit returned. We would recommend this house for anyone.

Everything you could possible need and more

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this house for two months. One of the best aspects is the clearness and maintenance of the house and had all elements for a comfortable stay. Mr.Terrence is very helpfully and professional. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. We will definitely come back, thank you for a great vacation. So it is very recommended, especially for families with small children

Wonderful & relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people including our 2 grandchildren ages 5 & 8. The house had everything we could have asked for. It is located in a soothingly-quiet area. The house was attractive, well-maintained, clean, had all the dishes, utensils, etc. we needed. There are TV's in every bedroom (3) plus games for the kids. Driving to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. was no problem. I brought along my GPS (Garmin) which I had preprogrammed and it was a godsend as I was not familiar with the area (I would recommend doing this). We asked and the owner provided lists of places to go, particularly that might appeal to kids, and we used it: went to Lemon Bay Tours (very nice boat cruise, saw dolphins literally jumping out of the water!), Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Gatorama: where we saw crocs being fed (out of a person's hand), Spanish Point, etc. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay and made us wish it had been longer.

AMAZING home in AMAZING area!

  • 5 of 5

This home was great, and TJ was very helpful while we were there. EVERYTHING your family needs to just relax and enjoy Florida life. Only 15 mins away from shopping and beaches. The beaches around this area are some of the most beautiful beaches around. GREAT place to find shells as well for some free souvenirs. The house has plenty of room and lots of places to sit and just relax. If you are coming to FL this house IS where you want to stay! My family already misses staying here and I am sure we will be back!

A Disappointment

  • 2 of 5

Unfortunately, we were met with SEVERAL disappointing situations, so it was not a wonderful time for us.

Certainly did not expect so many things to be or go wrong!

Definately was not clean nor well maintained!!

However, when we contacted the owner, he did resolve most of our issues quickly, so for that we were appreciative.

It is truly a place away from everything, so very quiet, but for us, having to drive to everything, such as a grocery store, gas station, etc., was an inconvience.

Owner's Response: I truly wish that the experience had been different for these renters, but the cleaning crew did not meet expectations. With their feedback I immediately replaced the cleaning service as well as replaced the dishwasher as it was another pain point expressed. All of this was done in a couple of days from the initial feedback from the client. Unfortunately the one thing I can not change is the location, which was also found unacceptable by these tenants. Many people find Rotonda West to be the perfect location as it is quiet, but provides 3 golf courses within the neighborhood and has many stores / beaches within a 15 minute drive. Rotonda West is a typical SW Florida home development and does require a car to get to many stores etc. Upon these renters requesting a quote for the home I also provided a map of recommended restaurants, activities etc, which all showed driving times and distances. My goal is to provide a wonderful and relaxing experience for all guests and I believe that this is typically accomplished. The guests currently in the home (Directly after this post) have found everything beyond their expectations and even contacted to rent again for next year. I very much appreciate the feedback of all tenants as it provides me the opportunity to continue improving the property to Exceed Every Tenants Expectations! My goal is to provide a well equipped home for all tenants that allows them to make it their own! If anything is missing or out of place I provide immediate responsiveness and resolution as I want every guest experience to be positive.

Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed and more for our vacation in Florida. Loved the house layout and the location which was great for golf. The owner went out of his way to make our stay comfortable, fun, and hassle free. Very pleasant experience all around. Two of the local restaurants which we particularly enjoyed were Prime Time and Howards on the Water.
