Guestbook comments from the owner

So nice to get back to Florida, has been 5 years, far too long. My 4 year old daughter has been all over the swimming pool and we found a battery operated swimming Nemo which has been great fun! Lovely cozy home has provided a very comfortable stay and we will hate it when we have to fly home to Arizona. Thank you for a much needed and thoroughly relaxing escape.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This property has comfortable beds, is very quiet at night and has a garage you can put your car in (sounds daft but having a cool place to pack/unpack the car is more important to us than having the garage converted into a games room). Having a table in the kitchen where you could have breakfast and look out over the canal (when it was too cold to sit outside!) was a welcome bonus.

We have stayed in a few properties on Rotonda West and this will be added to our shortlist when looking for accommodation in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. The temperatures were not brilliant this year while the north froze, we still didn't get the temperatures we hoped for. Thank you for your comments about the garage. We feel the same. Being able to drive in, shut the garage door with the remote and unpack at our leisure is high on our list as well! We very much hope to welcome you back soon to a warmer Florida!

This is our second visit to this gorgeous villa and it was as excellent as I'd remembered. The furniture and appliances are all clean and well maintained, as is the decor and it feels like a welcoming home as soon as you walk in. Although we were a couple, it is plenty big enough for a family or several couples as the bedrooms are all a good size with plenty of storage.

I spent many a happy hour on the ample decking, sometimes retreating under the lanai into the shade (it can get very hot in the Florida sun), and in the pool - which was absolute heaven. I could swim and peer over to the canal and watch birds and the baby alligator that swam up and down. We used the lilos that were available at the villa, already inflated, and had great fun drifting around the pool.

It is beautifully quiet at night (and day) and you are guaranteed a restful night's sleep.

The location is great as it doesn't take long to drive off the Rotonda to either access the shops, via Gasparilla road, at the plaza where there is a Publix, Subway, Garage, UPS etc. or go to Sunnybrook which will bring you out at a Winn Dixie and a lot of shops and plazas down the SR776 and to a large Walmart store. Tip - Try the ice cream at Swirl and Curl at the start of Sunnybrook, fantastic flavours and variety.

The beaches are a ten - fifteen minute drive away but boy, are they worth it. We visited Blind Pass Beach which has free parking and restroom facilities, including washing. At the time we visited these were being restored so temporary facilities were available. I went searching for fossilised shark's teeth for the first time (popular local activity) and found 54! The locals were very friendly and were happy to impart their advice on how to find them - even giving us a couple of the ones they'd found as examples. A great activity no matter what your age!

Food is plentiful if not eating at the villa. We particularly like Koo's Kitchen, Chinese takeaway on Tiffany Square. They don't deliver but food is brilliant. Papa John's pizza is the best pizza and they deliver to the door. Lock 'n' Key restaurant on Manasota Key is a favourite, reasonable prices and my husband tells me their chilli dish is to die for, I like the cocktails they serve and the great sandwiches and burgers.

I could go on forever but suffice to say I'm already planning when I can come back. It is well managed and owners are a delight to deal with. What are you waiting for?

Owner's Response: You are both lovely guests and we look forward to welcoming you again next year. Thank you for a wonderful write up. You have given me several new items to add to my guide that I send out to guests. We haven't tried Koo's Kitchen, so that is one for our next trip!

Lovely home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

the house was exactly as it looked on the web site. lovely and clean and well maintained.

the location was perfect, the Rotunda is well positioned to strike out and enjoy this part of Florida, and the house is a welcoming site after a day touring looking at the great sites this part of Florida offers.

We highly recommend this property, it's just lovely. The owner Christine takes pride in offering you the very best a villa holiday can offer. The information booklet in the villa is well put together, and gives you all the information you need.

I can not speak to highly of this villa, and I hope you enjoy your time as much as we did.

Perfect for couples or a family

  • 5 of 5

This is quality villa that soon became our home from home. It is exactly as described and as depicted in the photographs. What they can't show or tell you is that it is a wonderfully peaceful place and I spent many a happy hour listening and watching the tropical birds. The accommodation and furnishings are of a quality standard. I loved to sit by the sunny pool sometimes choosing to retreat under the lanai into the shade when the sun became too intense.

We didn't want to leave and wished we could stay and relax for longer. I'd definitely recommend this beautiful villa to my friends and family. We didn't need the services of the nearby manager (Hugh) although I did speak to him before we left. He was friendly and amenable.

We have stayed on the Rotonda at different villas over many years and this is definitely one we want to return to for our next holiday.

The location of the Rotonda is in between the beaches and Port Charlotte. There are plenty of shops close by (by U.S. Standards - a car is essential) including supermarkets, takeaways, ice cream shop et . It has everything anyone could want for a gulf stay.

Owner's Response: We loved welcoming you to our home. It is very special for us, a retreat from busy lives and a chance to recharge the batteries. It sounds as if it 'did' for you what it regularly does for us. Needless to you, our home is your home and we are very much looking forward to your next stay at Afallon.

Lovely comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Afallon and again we were not disappointed. The villa is very comfortable and clean in a very peaceful location.

Enjoying walks along the lovely local beaches, the nearest one Englewood about a fifteen minute car drive away, but we always headed for Stump Pass or Blind Pass.

The golf courses are excellent. There is a good choice of local restaurants. For a relaxing holiday this is a good place to head for.

Rotonda is perfect for relaxing! Wide gulf beaches to the West and smaller, Caribbean style beaches to the South on the Island. The sand here is soft and is places you can find small fossilsed sharks teeth which are great fun to collect and identify. If you drove to Sarasota for a day, you have the powder white sand which it is famous for, although the beaches can become quite crowded. Almost everything can be reached within 15 minutes. That includes shops, restaurants, State Parks, Kayaking, Tennis and Golf. Rotonda itself has 6 golf courses and 5 of these form our Golf Scoop of which Afallon is a member. Free golf in the summer (just a single admin fee of £35.00 per booking and golf cart hire is a personal expense). From mid-December to early April, there is an additional charge of £35.00 per adult per week (max 2 adults). Fishing is another popular pastime here . Backwater fishing offers excellent sport for Redfish, Snook, Spotted Trout, Sheeps Head and Lady Fish.

Other Activities: Local Baseball from early April to early September (Charlotte Stone Crabs) and early in the season, it is the Spring Training Ground for the Tampa Bay Rays
