Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Superb Villa in excellent quiet location.

Stayed for only a week unfortunately after touring in New York and Washington and so wished we could have stayed longer!!!

Was a 90 minutes drive from Tampa airport and about 3 hours from Miami airport where we sadly had to leave from.

Spotlessly clean on arrival and a great layout with master bedroom on one side, two further bedrooms on the other and large living areas in between with a nice family room over looking pool with tv/dvd player and great selection of films and books with breakfast bar and dining area just off. To the front was a larger formal dining area and lounge which was all nicely laid out and very comfortable.

Kitchen well equipped with large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, large oven, microwave and all amenities you could need and ample storage space.

Laundry room just behind kitchen was great and well used which meant not doing suitcases full of washing on return home.

Door leading to large garage with air even more facilities inside and air hockey table however due to the heat decided against using the bikes or golf clubs. Even managed to get my SUV inside with plenty room to spare.

Large driveway and garage to front. Out the back is a large screened area with two seating areas, sun loungers, spacious patio area with BBQ and a large very welcoming pool. We were so looking forward to chilling by the pool and were not disappointed one bit. The pool and outside area was tremendous!! Sun from dawn til dusk!!!

Behind the Villa was a grassed area with trees behind and to the sides so very private and the screen also ensured that no insects or bugs could get in and they didn't. Did not see any at all either in the pool area or house itself.

Was about a 15 minute drive to the nearest shop which we used being Walmart with a liquor store and a little further brought you to the coast and the nature reserve of Stump Pass, well worth the visit for the view of the coast and wildlife.

Port Charlotte was about 20 minutes the opposite way with a shopping centre including Victoria Secrets and Macys - unfortunately for my wallet!!

Also has an outback restaurant however did not have the time to visit.

All in all and excellent Villa both inside and out, excellent location and it has to be said a superb owner who has made our holiday that little bit special.

Many thanks Peter you are a true gentleman and I would highly recommend your villa to all my family and friends. I hope to return very soon.

Fantastic - Well Worth A Visit

  • 5 of 5

Many Thanks to the Owners for allowing us to stay in their amazing Villa – we had an absolutely fantastic time.

The villa itself is spacious, very clean and very tidy - equip with just about everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay (plus extras such as bikes, golf clubs etc..) and from our immediate arrival to the Rotonda West area we knew we had chosen well.

The villa has a very secluded and private outside pool area which we loved - it is huge with a decent size pool and also plenty of room to lie around and relax in the Florida sunshine ( great place for watching & listening to the local wildlife).

The immediate surrounding area is really quite beautiful though may be considered a little quiet for some however a 15min drive one way gets you to the coast with its magnificent beaches and 15mins the other way gets you to plenty main chain restaurants & shops.

All in All – I could not fault the place and have no hesitation in recommending a stay there - we will certainly be back.

Thanks Again Peter

Kindest Regards

Shaun & Diane – Stayed March 2016

Outstanding property.

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely fantastic villa. We couldn't believe the size of it when we first arrived, it was so spacious with two separate seating areas. When we first walked through the door we were so pleased with the decor and cleanliness.

The pool area was enormous and totally private. We have stayed in 4 other lovely villas over the years in Florida and this was by far the best.

The owner could not have been more helpful.

The villa provided two adult bikes, which we used most days.

The villa provided every thing for the beach i.e umbrellas, seats snorkel set and a huge ice box.

We stayed for a week and only wished it had been longer.

We will definitely use this villa again and book for much longer next time.

It took us 15 mins to drive to the beach, were we paddled boarded and jet skied. The beach was lovely.

There were plenty of great local restaurants.

There were local tennis courts we used.

Great property but lots of cockroaches

  • 1 of 5

The house was good but we had a lot of cockroaches outside and inside the house ( in excess of 25 ). We called the management company that said it was normal!!!! They send someone in to spray the outside of the house. That didn't really do much. When I rang back 3 days later they said they couldn't do anything else that it was normal. Contacted the owner that basically said the same as the management property,

The house felt like it wasn't been used for a while as there was a quite a lot of dead spiders in the window seals.

The house was in a extremely quite location and the sound of wildlife was amazing.

It could have been a an amazing holiday if we didnt have this issue or if would have been dealt properly.

The house itself was very good,the wi-fi was excellent and had a lot of extras as bikes, fishing rod and golf cubs.

The lanai was really big.

It had everthing to be amazing if the issue was dealt properly.

Owner's Response: It is normal to regularly see such bugs in Florida, and we are sorry that our guests were so disturbed. The villa has scheduled pest control, and in this instance an expert was sent to re-spray as necessary. Most were outside and every effort was made to get rid of them. This was an isolated issue, as reflected by no similar comments being received from guests who stayed immediately before and afterwards. We are upset that an otherwise apparently high star marking should be so downgraded.

Lovely secluded villa

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed twice in this villa now and really love it. The decking area is really spacious and secluded due to many unused plots either side of the property and then backs onto the golf course. Villa provided everything we needed including bikes, fishing rods and tackle, golf clubs etc.Free wifi. Villa was spotless on arrival. Hoping to have another visit next year.

The closest beaches are within 15 minutes drive of the villa. For convenience, and if you have children, Englewood beach on the barrier island of Manasota Key is the best choice, with showers, restrooms, picnic tables/BBQs, together with a choice of restaurants situated close to the beach. Continue along Manasota Key for quieter and more isolated stunning beach areas. Gasparilla Island/Boca Grande has long stretches of peaceful, white sand beaches, and for water sports, try Port Charlotte Beach.


Car hire is essential. The closest main international airport is Tampa, which is 90 minutes away. Orlando is approximately a 2.5 hour drive, and Orlando Sanford, which is used by many charter flights from the UK, is approximately 3 hours. Driving from Miami to Rotonda should take approximately 3 hours.

The nearest local airports are Sarasota & Fort Myers each of which is around 45 minutes from the villa.


Englewood and Port Charlotte are each within 10 – 15 minutes drive of the villa, whilst Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island is a similar distance. The well known and sophisticated towns of Sarasota and Naples are within an hour’s drive. And if you want an alternative to the Orlando/Disney area, why not try Busch Gardens and Water Park, approximately a 1.5 hour drive.

Further Details:

For your provisions, large supermarkets such as Publix, Winn Dixie and Wal-Mart, are within a few minutes drive, as are an excellent range of shops, comprehensive malls, banks, hair and beauty salons etc. Restaurants to suit all tastes abound, and a list will be provided for guests.
