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 Pinehurst

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, Luxurious, & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I have had an amazing time at Starfish Villa! At first, it seemed so huge, but it quickly became a cozy vacation getaway for us. It's such a nice quiet location, and the weather here during our January stay was sooo warm. We had a minor problem right at the beginning of our stay, but Lisa made sure it was fixed as soon as possible! This house has everything we needed and more! We love that there were beach chairs, umbrellas, bicycles, and other items to make a trip to the beach easy. We've already decided that we want to come back in a few years for another wonderful time. Thank you so much for your beautiful home!

Very cute!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 stayed here over Thanksgiving. We liked the pool and grill area and it's a nice outdoor set up for entertaining. We rode bikes and had extended family over for dinner during the week one night. It's a very cute place. Thank you for sharing it.

Wow what an amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with plush cream carpets, the Villa was spotlessly clean. The owners have thought of everything to make our holiday one to remember. The Villa was fully equipped with everything we needed on our vacation. We had beach towels and in the garage there were bikes for all of us along with beach chairs and umbrellas! The pool and hot tub was our favourite part of the Villa we spent hours around it and swimming in it! The summer kitchen complete with BBQ was great for spending evenings by the pool enjoying the lanai area. We can't wait to go back to Starfish Villa.

Peaceful and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at Star Fish Villa for my family. The house is just beautiful and close to some great, unspoiled beaches. If you are looking for the REAL Florida experience, without all the touristy shops and crowds, this is definitely the place for you. Thank you again, for allowing my family to stay in your gorgeous home!

Owner's Response: We love to welcome previous guests to our home, it shows how much they enjoyed their stay and want to return back to us. Our home is in a quiet peaceful area of Florida but not far from the gorgeous beaches. There is plenty to do around the area and if you want to visit the theme parks in Orlando it is only a 2 hour drive away so you can easily do it in a day and get back to peace and quiet again!

They don't come any better

  • 5 of 5

Just reading the Villa description makes you want to book, but having been there you definitely would book.

The Villa is wonderfully situated with a large space on either side from the neighbouring ones and looks welcoming. Step through the door and you immediately get the 'wow' factor, the quality and cleanliness cry out. The open plan of the kitchen, lounge and dining areas allow for areas to relax and ones to share and enable the poor chef to interact.

The pool and spa are beautifully designed and the outside barbecue with a covered top means even the rain can be ignored. The large garage has 5 Adult & 1 Child (with stabilisers) bikes give you access to Rotonda West's myriad of safe Bike trails. Cool boxes, beach chairs and Umbrella's can also be found there for trips to the beach.

Supermarkets, restaurants and the main arterial highways are minutes away, although I would recommend a Sat Nav for the longer journeys. Golfers your only problem will be deciding which course to play, in this part of Florida there is an abundance.

Tampa is the nearest airport for direct flights although we flew to Orlando which is still only 160 miles (nearly all interstate).

The litmus test of any holiday is would I return, the answer is a big YES to both this stunning villa and Rotonda West.

The surrounding area of Rotonda is ideal for a quiet safe holiday and there are so many beaches to choose from our guests are spoilt for choice. We would love to welcome you again so please get in touch next time you are planning a visit to Florida. Best wishes Denise and John

Horrible! Urine in bed, unwashed bedding, , filthy carpets, rotted rusted out grill and a cockroach infestation in the garage and house. Extreamly rude home owners. Took hundreds of before and after photos!

Owner's Response: With regards to the cockroach infestation this guest actually brought the German Cockroaches into our home from a box of food which they brought in with them. The owners had to call the bug exterminator at extra cost who confirmed the bugs were brought into the house and were not there in the first place. There were also over 12 young teenagers (as well as 2 adults) staying in our home which is against our insurance and terms of business. They were sleeping on floors, sofas and generally our home looked like a youth hostel. When the guest was tackled about this from our property manager they took offence and were extremely rude. When these guests left our house we had to have the carpets professionally cleaned, there was biro pen all over the walls, sand throughout the house and generally the house had not been cleaned or kept tidy for their whole vacation. Most guests leave our home in a perfect condition, unfortunately these guests were not like that. The owners have not seen any before or after photos from this guest so totally dispute all of their claims. In our 8 years of renting we have had no problems or complaints. We have been fortunate to have guests who have treated our beautiful home with respect unfortunately these guests did not. Denise and John

Car: necessary

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.
