Treat yourself to the best. This bright, spacious villa is fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to feel right at home. It boasts a huge master bedroom with ensuite plus 2 other bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin) (and a separate den with its own Queen sized pull out sofa bed and 32" TV). There are 2 dining areas-seating 6 (formal and breakfast room) a fully equipped kitchen. Separate utility room housing a large American washing machine and tumble dryer. Outside we have an electrically heated (optional) swimming pool (30x15) and oversized patio and lania area. Two adult bikes for guests use. Extra large garage with lots of pool toys.
My wife, son, daughter-in-law and 5-year old granddaughter and I stayed here in January 2017 for 11 days.
It's a spacious villa - especially the lounge, master bedroom and master bathroom. The guest bedrooms and master bedroom are in separate "wings" of the house which meant that as two separate families neither intruded on the other's sleeping arrangements. Each of the main bedrooms has doors leading onto the patio and pool which was great as it avoided us having to traipse through the house to get to the appropriate shower. There's also a large door leading from the lounge to the patio which contained more than ample luxury sunbeds and a large table and chairs.
We decided to opt for the additional cost to heat the pool - a worthwhile investment as the pool temperature was a perfect 88⁰F (31⁰C) - even on the coolest of days.
The kitchen is well stocked with crockery, cutlery, glasses, pots, pans and ovenware - more than you'll ever need for a holiday! A large American fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a huge washing machine and an even "huger" tumble dryer make self-catering a dawdle; and there were more than enough clothes hangers to meet the demands of 3 ladies in the group!
Added bonuses were plenty of bed linen, towels and beach towels, the last being particularly helpful as it meant we didn't have to carry our own beach towels in our luggage. The double garage has folding chairs, fishing rods, parasols, cool boxes, pool toys and even golf clubs - enough stuff to keep everyone happy. There is also a gas barbecue but we never used it. There is also a lot of information about the area and lots of books to read and DVDs to view - along with a TV in every room!
The villa was exceptionally clean on our arrival. We were extremely pleased with our choice and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
I stayed here in the last week of July with my Husband and 15 year old daughter. We felt totally at home as soon as we walked through the front door. The accommodation is superb and very tastefully decorated. Everything was catered for down to the towels for the pool. The surrounding area was a quiet residential one which helped with the relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the pool area including the alligators and fledgling woodpeckers a truly humbling experience. The owners had left maps to shops beaches and restaurants all within easy reach by car.
If you want a relaxing holiday in spacious surroundings this is the villa for you!!
We stayed here for a week in June and absolutely loved it. The villa is stunning and equipped with everything you could possibly need and is exceptionally well maintained. There is a Walmart just around the corner from which you can purchase all of the supplies you need if you do not wish to eat out every day. The owners are very friendly and easy to deal with and make the whole booking process very easy indeed.
The villa is in a lovely quiet location just 10 mins by car from the Manasota Key / Lemon Bay area which both we and the locals can only describe as "paradise". The beaches are beautiful and very quiet (even in June) and the area is teaming with wildlife - we did a sunset cruise and saw lots of dolphins, a manatee, pelicans, ospreys, frigate birds etc. The beaches are also covered in sea turtle nests.
We will certainly be back again as we did not want to leave.
THis house has all that we need and want for our Florida stay. Next year will be our 5th year! THe house is well equipped with essentials; it has a beautiful pool, and is very private. We enjoy using the bikes on the nearby trail all the way to the gulf, and see many birds and fish in the pond, bald eagles nesting nearby every year, and dolphins in the gulf.
There are many good golf courses near by, that are reasonable and well maintained. Restaurants and shopping is also close by.
The property manager is friendly and helpful when needed.
This is an excellent house in a not so crazy busy part of Florida.
We spent a Month at this property, although the weather was not consistent, we had a great time, it is home from home, very comfortable and nice situation. It is exactly as it looks on the pictures. Would recommend it as a lovely place to stay if you want a quiet holiday. Beaches are closeby as are shops. Nice restaurants at Port Charlotte, including Applebys, Longhorns and Olive Gardens.
Just returned from 9 wonderful nights in this fantastic villa.
One of the best equipped places we have ever stayed, kitchen had everything and more of things we needed.
Home was spacious, airy and exceptionally clean inside and out.
We loved the outside space and the pool was plenty big enough for a family of 5.
Anne was great answering all our questions before we booked and the whole booking and paying process easy and painless.
Had one small issue but the Manager came out within half an hour of me calling at 9am on Christmas day and then popped back the next day to check we were ok.....very impressed.
The area around the villa felt very peaceful and safe.
Everything was in easy reach including places to eat, shop and visit. The beaches within 20 minutes of the villa were just beautiful.
Would not hesitate to recommend this gorgeous villa to anyone, certainly hope we maybe able to return again x
The villa is situated only 10 minutes from four of the finest, whitest sandiest beaches, clear tropical waters, exotic vegetation and abundant wildlife combine to make your trip unforgettable. Bottle nosed Dolphins are the stars as well as tropical birds - egrets, great herons, pelicans, eagles, osprey, buzzards,cormorants and during the winter months giant white pelicans. Great for the kids to gather shells, sharks teeth and Pelican watching.
Use of car essential. Tampa airport 1 hr 20 mins. Orlando 2 hrs 30 mins. Sanford and Miami 3 hrs. Fort Myers 1 hr 15 mins.
The local supermarkets are Winn Dixie (6 mins away) and Publix (similar distance). The 4 beaches, with white sand, are all within 10 mins drive. Port Charlotte Mall with its many outlets is 15/20 mins. Further south you have Naples, Everglade City and the National Park. 2 hours away is Busch Gardens. North is the great shopping areas of Venice and Sarasota. Orlando (for the kids!) is 2 1/2 hrs drive.
Restaurants are everywhere and you will find friendly and attentive service while enjoying a spectacular sunset or simply basking in the warmth of Florida's weather.
Did we hear shopping? Port Charlotte has it's own mall and Venice which is just a few miles up the road has some very pretty shopping around the coast. There are two discount outlets, one to the north and one to the south.If you don't know the area then we have in our villa a Guest information book on places to go and things to do. Please contact owner for useful website informaton. Come and enjoy our villa home.
