Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at a number of properties in the Rotonda and Cape Haze area. Kate and Ken have put together one of the cleanest and most nicely equipped houses we have had. Everything was so clean when we arrived, it felt like we were coming home to our own house. The pool was kept up nicely by Dave with whom I enjoyed morning chats when he would stop by. Dave and Dawn are the best caretakers we have ever had. They had prepared everything so nicely, we had little reason to call them except to thank them when we left! Thank you Kate and Ken for all you put into making this happen!

Our second year at the Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation at the Villa. We were able to book 6 weeks this year. Our experience was the same as our first. Exceptionally clean , comfortable and all the comforts of home and more. The house is located on one of the best streets in Rotonda , Boundary Blvd. You are also located close to the main street's exiting Rotonda which makes it easier and faster to Mc Call Rd and most of the shopping and super markets. Your a short drive to many of the area's beaches and restaurants and what you will find is not allot of chain restaurants but locally owned and each having their distinct menu and identity. We love Farlows on the Water. Also Boca Grande is our favorite beach. White sand and plenty of room to park your chairs and umbrella 's. The most important thing for us is the customer friendliness of the owners Kate & Ken . They always respond in a timely manner to any problem or concern and have made each visit for us a great experience. If you love a quiet , relaxing and lay back vacation , you'll love this Villa and the Rotonda area.

Excellent Villa, No Complaints!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at this villa for three weeks, and we loved every second of it!

Very nicely decorated, with all modern facilities we required. The WiFi worked excellently for our requirements (skype, researching activities, booking accommodation). The villa was in a very cleanly state upon our arrival. We were aware that a management company must have paid visits to tend to the garden on the property, but they at no point disturbed our stay.

The beds and sofa were so comfortable, we would have brought them home with us if we could!

The location was excellent. In nice quiet area which meant relaxing by the pool with no disturbances. Local stores and eateries are only a 5 minute drive away. For travels further afield we found this to be an excellent base to start from. 2-3 hour drive from the main theme parks, 3 hours to Miami, a 6 hour drive back from Key West. All easily done in a day and close enough to the main highways that they were no problem to navigate.

We will definitely be booking another stay again….. and bringing a bag big enough to squeeze those sofas into!!! Thanks!

Tastefully decorated , comfortable and customer friendly

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in the Rotonda West area for the last 7 years and this was our most pleasant home and visit. The Villa was tastefully decorated and white glove clean. The outside is well maintained and landscaped with an outstanding curb appeal. The pool was always inviting with temps that allowed for swimming at all hours of the night , although at our age that's not that late. lol. The most pleasant experience was the attention to the customer both with the owner Kate and the property managers Place in the Sun. Any problem we had was addressed immediately . Because of this experience , we are returning next year and extending our vacation to 6 weeks.

Scenic Facility for Enjoying Golf, Beaches, Nature and Pool Time

  • 5 of 5

Of all of our rentals over the past 4 years, this one was the best. It is a spacious, well-decorated home with all the conveniences as advertised. Although the dining room table was nice, we ate most of our meals on the lanai by the pool. At breakfast we were joined by singing birds and a wading heron fishing along the banks of the river. At lunch the geckos were climbing on the outside of the screened in enclosure, as they did when we swam or floated in the marvelous pool, always a comfortable 90 degrees. And at supper the setting sun lit up the sky with brilliant colors. We did see a gator floating down the lazy river 3 different times, but never closer. The master bedroom was very comfortable with a convenient walk in shower and dual sinks. The TV room provided evening entertainment and relaxing sitting in the reclining couches. Golf at the local courses was fun and affordable. Nearby beaches were easy to get to without a ton of traffic and we especially loved the beaches on Gasparilla Island and hiking through Stump Pass State Park on Manasota Island. The area is quiet and peaceful with ocean breezes soothing the heat of the sun. Sunsets are spectacular whether from a beach or the deck of one of many restaurants in the area with fantastic seafood. The owners and management company kept the rental process friendly and helped with information on things to see and do. We enjoyed our 5 week stay immensely at this location.

Owner's Response: Thanks for giving our home such a great review. Assisted by our 24/7 management company we work hard to keep the property to a good standard so our guests can enjoy a pleasant, relaxing, problem free vacation. Having the chance to see the birds and wildlife that live along the river is also a big bonus.
