MICHAEL MILLINGTON purchased this house in 2009
We bought this property because we love the quiet neighborhood of Rotonda and the surrounding area. The beaches are a short drive away and there are numerous golf courses in the area.
The property was very clean and had everything a person would need on vacation which made us feel at home. Loved exploring the Blind pass park and Stump pass park as well as Englewood beach. Had a relative that was elderly visit and she walked around with ease and even loved the pool. As a teacher on a budget this was the coolest vacation I had in awhile with my son and dog! Hoping to book again.
The house is very nice, surprisingly large bedrooms, walk in closets, and master bathroom which is also setup perfect. Great area and this house is no more than 10 minutes from pretty much everything. Highly recommend this area and particularly this house!
My family, four legged members included had a wonderful vacation with this house as out home base. It's in a very quiet neighborhood but still very centrally located. It was a short drive to dining and beaches and Winn Dixie is right down the road. We loved the pool and lanai and the house itself was very roomy and open. Thank you so much for a great vacation and we will definitely be coming back.
It has been almost a year since we rented this wonderful home from Mike, but I wanted to be sure to say how great it was! My husband and I ( and our 2 small dogs) stayed for a week and it could not have been better. It was conveniently located to everything, including relatives nearby, yet on a very private lot that allowed us the vacation we so needed. Thank you so much for sharing your property!
We rented the house off of Mike and Anita for two weeks.In fact, we extended our stay by a week because we enjoyed it so much. The house itself is perfect.It is so clean and had everything we needed.We have vacationed alot over the years and this place was the best equipped by far.The pool was a great retreat that we enjoyed every day.The house is centrally located.It is close to several beautiful beaches.Make sure you check out the beach at Boca Grande. Just beautiful!!!The shopping is good with lots of malls and grocery stores nearby.We thoroughly enjoyed the local fresh produce.Lots of great restaurants close by as well.Mike and Anita were wonderful to deal with and made us feel right at home.Thank you both!Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful home to family and friends.We look forward to a return visit in the future.
We had a wonderful holiday and the villa was so clean and comfortable. We loved the memory foam beds so comfy.The sofas and leather reclining chair were so welcoming to put your feet up and watch the huge plasma television after a day around the shops.
We had two empty plots at the side of the villa, which were ideal for the wildlife while we were staying at the villa we saw a Racoon ,Bobcat,and everyday we saw an Armadillo it must have had a nest in the bushes outside .I was fascinated at how close you could get to it .I was able to touch it before it would notice me.If you walk over the road through the empty plot is the canal which will have alligators in.
Plenty to see and do in the area,Great nature trails for walking or cycling we saw an eagle on one of the trails.The beaches are to kill for, Englewood beach is so nice and quite only ten minutes drive away we often went there to watch the sunsets.Also some great restraurants, great food and great prices.I loved Wallmart I could stay in there all day and shop.You have supermarkets close by,Dollar stores everything you need is in easy reach of a car.Punta Gorda is a nice place to visit you can go on boat rides see the dolphins and do go into the fisherman village where there is an abundant of specialty shops I went into a dog boutique and spent a fortune on doggy items but got great value for my money and my spoilt dogs loved all there treats when I got home
If you walk past the golf course at the villa you will see lakes where we saw one big alligator I beleive it as had ten young gators since. If you take a journey to Miami, Travel the everglades way, we went on an airboat it was one big experiance.But a nice one to remember.I am looking forward to being able to come and stay in your lovely villa again at the end of the year thank you so much for your hospitality and a wonderful holiday.

The Rotonda nature preserve is also close by for hiking/biking. The beautiful beaches of Englewood, Monosota Key and Boca Grande are very close. Don't miss a trip on the ferry to Palm Island, the ferry is located just outside of the entrance to Rotonda.
