About Denise Hunt

We are an English family who live in the South East of England.

Denise Hunt purchased this villa in 2011

Why Denise Hunt chose Rotonda West

We were immediately impressed with this property as it was decorated to a high specification and had a fantastic pool and hot tub. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet and when we are staying at our holiday home it is our get away from it all! We are close to the Gulf coast beaches and close enough to travel to the major attractions so our home is ideal to have an away from it all holiday combined with going to all the major attractions on offer in Florida.

What makes this villa unique

The pool, hot tub and summer kitchen are perfect for summer evenings, with our favorite jazz music softly playing through the music intercom we can truly relax in the beautiful surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a brilliant time in your home, plenty to do. The hot tub and pool are fantastic and we didn't want to leave. Everything was catered for including beach chairs and cool boxes for those long days on the beach.



We will definently be booking again.

Beautiful, clean and comfortable holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning, spacious and comfortable house with everything you need for a long or short stay. There are two living and two dining areas with ample room for all the guests to share. The kitchen is large with a centre island and everything you would find at home to cook a meal. In particular the crockery, glasses and utensils were very clean as was the whole house. The pool area is large and there is plenty of seating and loungers. I especially liked the choice of bikes in the garage - seven in total - and I cycled miles everyday including the old railway line to Gasparilla Island. The house is in a quiet area of similar properties but no neighbors either side. We all really enjoyed our stay there and were grateful to Lisa (property manager) and Denise (owner) for keeping in touch. I don't have any negative points to mention about the house or the booking arrangements. I would recommend this house if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Rotonda West.

Fantastic home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 3 children and I rented this home over the New Year's holiday from 2015 into 2016. We had a wonderful time! The home was clean upon our arrival! The set up of the home was fantastic with the focal point of the home being the pool. We ate dinners at the table by the pool as my husband grilled on the outdoor pool grill. Also, there is a pool bathroom that our kids could dash to without dragging water into the house! Denise (owner) was available by e-mail whenever I had a question. The beds were very comfortable and all of the glasses, dishes and cooking utensils needed were there for our use. There were also pool toys and bikes for our use! I was able to do all of our vacation laundry there and come home to clean laundry after our stay! We made great memories there and we recommend this home to any family looking for a private and quiet get away!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for Christmas week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As many others have noted, the home is well stocked....I've been renting from VRBO for many years, and this home had all of the the little things that you need when renting a home. Spices, aluminum foil, paper towels, soap, dish detergent, laundry detergent, trash bags...the list goes on. This is a really nice bonus because you don't have to run to the store to purchase all the necessities.

There were many things we enjoyed about this home:

First and foremost was the privacy. Most rentals in Florida seem to be in areas where houses are built so close together, that you are staring at neighbors anytime you walk outside. This home has empty lots on both sides and there are trees behind the house. End result is an extraordinary amount of privacy. And it's nice and quiet.

Second, the community has walking paths AND bike paths. The owners have bikes available for use and my husband and I really enjoyed cruising or walking around the neighborhood for some daily exercise.

Third, the heated pool and hot tub really made the vacation. The pool is heated to 86 degrees which is warm enough to just walk right in....no chill bumps! We were there for eight days and we used the pool every day and ended every evening with a nice soak in the hot tub (104 degrees by the way).

Fourth, this area of Florida isn't over-developed. It almost has a country feel to it (by Florida standards). If you are looking for crowds, noise, and traffic, you will need to drive somewhere else. This was perfect for us. There are also several golf courses within the community.

Fifth, there are some really nice beaches and restaurants within a short distance from the home. Our favorite restaurant was Placida Grill and it is less than five minutes from the house. It's a local secret and it doesn't look like much from the outside, but they have excellent food, wine, and service. Highly recommend it. A day trip to the beaches on Gasparilla Island are also a must. Depending on which beach you go to, the drive is 15 to 30 minutes.....and the island is very quaint. The house also has beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, and coolers, so a trip to the beach is as easy as putting the beach "essentials" in the car.

I gave this house a five star rating because it deserved it. My husband and I are likely to rent this home again next year.

A Beautiful, quiet Villa! Everything you need for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the neighborhood very peaceful. It was clean and had all of the admenaties a family needs on a long, quiet vacation: a large kitchen, a laundry room and an outdoor BarBQ. All of the plates, pots and pans and cutlery you need to make a meal at home. The pool and hot tub were fantastic! My granddaughter kept us in the pool most of the time that we were away from the beach. The beaches were about a 10 to 15 minute drive depending on which one you choose. All had public parking, great shelling and a surprise bonus for us prehistoric shark teeth! There were plenty of restaurants around to have a bite out on the go and quite a few grocery stores and of course a Walmart close by to stock up on food or household items you need during your stay. The owners are lovely people. Very friendly and helpful! We would definitely recommend this vacation property and hope to spend our next beach vacation here again. Thanks so much!!!

stunning place for hollidays!! fully recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house for hollidays. The house was fully equipped with even more things that we expected. We were staying with two kids that enjoyed so much the whole house and especially the pool area! Perfect time for our hollidays, we will definitely go back. The landlord was very kind and very helpful. The house made us feel like at home..fully recommended. The near Beaches, just few minutes far by car, were just great! Thank you Denise!

Excellent Villa with Everything You Need to Make Your Holiday Extra Special!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful well equipped villa! We have rented many villas before, but this one truly stood out! It is a well maintained, clean, and spacious villa. The big screen TV, the relaxing spa, the outdoor BBQ/Kitchen, beach equipment, pool toys...and of course the lovely pool...just made our holiday exceptional!

I honestly can't think of what else this villa needed...because it had everything!

The owners are also wonderful people and very quick to respond to inquiries and very accommodating!

Thank you so very much!

Our home is only 10 mins drive away from the gulf coast beaches - there are so many to choose from. Our favourite is Venice Beach where you can fish from the pier and when you get peckish drop into Sharkeys on the pier for fresh fish or burgers - in the evening it is a popular place with locals and visitors alike as you watch the sunset over a drink! Boat hire is very reasonable and you can charter your own small boat and go for a whole day with a picnic and stop off at any small beach you see along the way - its brilliant day out and ideal for seeing dolphins and manatees. The dolphins are very friendly and will run with the boat for a while so you can take pictures of them.

If you fancy a day out shopping Sarasota is only 40 mins drive away and the shops and restaurants are first rate. There is a marina and plenty of beaches to choose from. You can also visit Maria Island from here which is a stunning white sand beach.

Port Charlotte to the south, 20 mins drive, is a shopping mall complete with all the larger department stores such as JC Penney and Macys - there are restaurants in the mall to have a delicious lunch and even a cinema to watch the latest blockbuster. Surrounding the mall outside are more places to eat including Red Lobster which we can thoroughly recommend - our children love it here!

If you fancy visiting the theme parks Orlando is about 2 1/2 drive away, we sometimes book a hotel close to Disney and go to the theme parks for 2 days then drive back down to the house for some relaxation time - its a great way to keep the children amused and that way everyone gets the holiday they really want.

Closer to the house are the 6 championship golf courses, while the men are away playing golf it will give the ladies are perfect time to either shop, visit a spa, or just relax by the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet.
