"We are enjoying your beautiful home. We felt very comfortable, just like at home. The pool and spa were great. Thank you for sharing your home, we will come back sometime." ...Excerpt from message left in guest book.
We loved our stay at the sand dollar. The owner was very accommodating. This is one of the nicest homes that we have stayed at in the area. The decor was very high-end and the home was immaculate. It was well equipped with everything you might need including bikes. It is a family friendly option and great for young children as well. The privacy is superb. We will be back!
I have rented several villas in Rotonda over the years and this villa was by far the best! Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. The house was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The pool was also clean, which has been an issue in the past with other rentals. We had a wonderful week and enjoyed all the area beaches. We rented a boat our last day and enjoyed the intercostal waterways and Don Pedro Island.
We visited this property for a summer family vacation. The house is well maintained with all of the necessary equipment for your stay. We loved the kitchen and the view.
Our second visit in two years, villa is clean, very well equipped and maintained, private and peaceful. Ten minute drive to beautiful beaches, five minutes to golf courses. Tried sea fishing and visited a baseball game amongst other things. Perfect for a relaxing holiday.
I always try to choose a vacation home that is roomy, clean and very comfortable. The Sand Dollar was all that and more. So beautifully decorated yet warm and welcoming. My family of 6 were thrilled when we arrived. It didn't take long before we were showered and in the pool! We enjoyed the home so much we really didn't want to do too much site seeing or excursions. I didn't get a chance to sign the Guest Book but I would have said all this and that there are beautiful beaches close by, a delicious Ice Cream parlor as well as grocery stores and several great restaurants like Farlow's on the Water, Lock & Key and Cafe' 776. And to the owner, Sandy, Thank you for being so nice and helpful and for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Just left Sand Dollar. Very clean house. The pool was great. Had a very nice week. The house was as clean as it shows. We would recommend this house to anyone. Will come back. thanks.
This is one of the world venues for Tarpon Fishing from mid-April to late July. Old Florida style restaurants are close by. Rotonda West is a golf community with six golf courses. The Rotonda Community Park in the center of Rotonda offers tennis courts, a pavilion with picnic tables and grills, a walking/bike trail and children's playground. Stump Pass Beach and Englewood Beach are minutes away, as is the quaint island of Boca Grande, also with fabulous beaches.
