Wonderful ready to go retreat

  • 5 of 5

We took our three young boys to Florida for the first time to see the ocean. A home setting is just what we all needed to relax and keep in routine.

The home was perfect for our needs. The heated pool kept the boys and I busy all day as my husband used the wifi to "work from home" as needed.

We came in late and Debi had the house clean and ready to use for us. Beds all had clean sheets, towels were ready to use, it was an easy transition to bedtime :)

The kitchen was well stocked with the odds and ends that you don't always think to pack (salt, pepper, coffee filters, garbage bags, hand soap etc.)

We loved our stay! Super close to the ocean, 15 minutes maybe. Walmart was close, bonus!

Very well maintained and friendly owners who were ready to help if needed. Washer and dryer were a life saver for us with 3 boys!!

Terrible Experience

  • 1 of 5

We booked a long weekend, Thursday Dec. 15 – Sunday Dec. 18. As required, we paid well in advance, and started contacting Debbie, the owner, on Monday Dec. 12 for access information.

We tried contacting Debbie, but she never returned our emails or phone calls. We believed Debbie would get back to us, so we headed out on the 15th and kept trying to reach her from the car. Debbie never did get back to us.

We also contacted VRBO who tried reaching Debbie, but to no avail. VRBO offered to put us up in a hotel overnight, but that is not what we wanted or had paid for, so we headed back home. Fortunately, this rental did not involve air travel; we drove back home, but anyone thinking about renting this property who is flying in should think twice.

Debbie finally called on Friday, Dec 16th. She said she wondered why we didn’t show up; how could she have wondered why we weren’t there if she never gave us access information. She made some ridiculous excuse for not returning our calls and emails. She even blamed VRBO for changing its platform.

Our weekend vacation was ruined; we were out-of-pocket for gas and tolls. If you book this property, be careful. Debbie is irresponsible.

Owner's Response: Yes, this happened. I have been renting my house out for 5yrs with no issues. I reached out to the traveler. I tried to make things right. He did receive a prompt refund. I also offered a free stay.

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this property, especially the pool area and hot tub. We have stayed at multiple properties in the Rotonda area and this was definitely one we would consider staying at again. It was clean and well furnished.

Would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for the late review! ( I had thought I had done this previously) We were thoroughly impressed and pleased with this rental! Everything was exceptionally clean and exactly as described. The internet connection was fast, the house was the perfect size to spread out, all amenities were met above our expectations and the pool was clean and refreshing! The location was perfectly convenient and we would definately consider returning if we would like to visit relatives again! Owners were a pleasure to work with. Cannot say it enough how happy we were! Thank You!

Fantastic vacations

  • 5 of 5

We are a German couple travelling since a couple of years to the US. We've already rented villas in Rotonda or Cape Carol but this was the best experience we ever had. The villa was awesome and had everything we needed. There was a heated pool and we enjoyed quite often the jacuzzi, the Internet connection also worked perfectly. What an experience!! Debi and Ben are very friendly, uncomplicated and very helpful and it's also an advantage if the owner live quite nearby if any problems arise. But we din't have any. Our vacation was so relaxing and Rotonda is a very quiet area and the beaches are nearby, i.e. Mansota Key, Boca Grande, Nakomi. One day we enjoyed the no 1 beach in Siesta Key. Debi and Ben also provide beach equipment and two bikes. And tennis courts are round the corner. And you the shopping opportunities in Port Charlotte (malls) or the oulet centers in Miromar, the Tanger close to Sanibel or the Premium outlets in Ellenton.

Thanks again to Debi and Ben for the wonderful stay but please be aware we will certainly rent your villa again!!!
