The Gardens are lovely all year round, and atracts much wildlife. the house has all you need to make your stay memorable, from all the beach stuff to Pool toys. you can cycle in safety, Play Golf on great Courses, with top quality Golf clubs, no need to bring yours. you can relax by the pool, in the afternoon Sun. why not have fun on the Nintendo WI, or perhaps have a go on our Gamming table, as well as numerous board games. The 4 bathrooms make even the busiest morning stress free, and its big enough for all to find their own little bit of space. If TV is your thing, we have them all over, even showing English Soccer. the Music system has all sorts of variety, and you can even plug in your Ipod and enjoy your taste. It is always great to cook outdoors, but inside we have all you need as well, both formerly and informerly. we never tire reading all those comments in the visitors book!!
What makes this House unique
It's hard to find a property so secluded, but at the same time close by to all you need. The extra touches like Golf Clubs and Bikes are loved by our rentals, and those little bits of detail that make a house a home, are found throughout There is nothing like picking a lemon from the garden,to enhance your cocktail overlooking the gardens, where you often see red cardinals play,or even the odd Armadillo

Fantastic, everything as described and really nice place to stay.
We really liked the Pumpkin and ghosts and Witch on the tree at the front of the house-really made you know this was going to be a holiday to remember and we hadn't even opened the front door!
Villa was exceptional and had everything you could wish for, so well cared for and well equipped.
Pool was lovely and clean and the BBQ was really good and easy to use and keep clean.
Area was very beautiful and the neighbourhood was peaceful and so friendly.
You really felt part of the community and not a tourist.
Villa location is ideal for day trips and the beaches and wild life areas are within easy reach.
Supermarkets really easy to find and the journey from the airport was really easy to do.
The owner, Alan, is great to communicate with and sent us a really useful email with directions etc before we left the UK.
The option to use bicycles and golf clubs was a nice touch (although we didn't have enough time to use them in the end).
The wild life that visited the garden was spectacular with exotic birds and a Bobcat too!
A nice touch too was the book the owners have left showing the birds you might see and notes on the one's they had seen actually visit the garden.
Another godsend is the policy of encouraging visitors to leave unused food in the fridge rather than throw it away. We arrived very late due to flight delays and it was great to find some milk in the fridge and some tea bags, sometimes only a cuppa will do!
We left some items for the next occupants and hope they enjoy them!
We made a trip out to Englewood on Saturday to see a local Hot Rod and Classic Car show and for a petrol head like me it was absolute heaven!
The Muscle Car City car museum at Punta Gorda is also worth a visit if you like American Cars!
Don't worry, the area has plenty to see and do if you're not into car culture.
This was a really relaxing holiday and we can't wait to come back.
We have used "Owners Direct" before and really recommend them for a stress free vacation.
"Perfect" is often over used but in this case it really was PERFECT.
What a lovely review!
Thank you for your kind words
It’s always good to hear and appreciate that rentals enjoy our home
The house was plenty big enough to accommodate our 9 family members. We all enjoyed the pool, spa, quiet neighborhood and open floor plan. The landscaping was beautiful! The house could use new carpet and a drawer in the frig was broken, but overall it didn't affect the enjoyment of our stay. Owner Alan was very quick to respond to any questions we had and was a great host. Thank you!
This house is absolutely perfect. Clean and spacious. Quiet neighborhood.
Three families fit here comfortably. Two master bedrooms with jacuzzi in room (we did not get to use) but we’re very clean. Three extra bedrooms; queen size bed, 2 twin size beds and one room with a futon(very comfortable also). This place felt like home. We we’re concerned with there having a coffee maker but there was one in the house. Beach towels were provided there also for our use. Very nicely decorated. Overall, all I can say is we will definitely be back!!!
Such a wonderful home! Even though you are 30+ minutes from a beach (which we knew ahead of time), the peace and quiet on the lanai and the wonderful pool makes up for it. All furnishings are top notch.
We had a question regarding pool heat & it was handled in a very timely manner by the management company. We also had questions prior to arrival and the owner was great in timeliness as well as meeting a special need.
Everything from the the kitchen supplies (plates, silverware, etc.) including the BBQ grill were nice and better than most vacation rentals.
The lanai furniture was second to none. Even though there were only 2 of us there is room for several more people to dine and sit by the pool. We didn't ride bikes but there are numerous ones in the garage. It is a nice area to walk or jog with very little traffic in the neighborhood.
We especially loved the fact that there are no close by neighbors which made it even more relaxing and enjoyable so you don't have to listen to people talking or dogs barking. It was a very relaxing vacation - just what we needed!
Overall our stay was nice. I would not rent again as I do not think what we paid was worth the value
Place was clean when we arrived. We found some mold in the showers. The cushions on the couch will not stay in place. We were constantly trying to push them in. The last complaint is some of the beds are in need a new mattress. My family complained they did not sleep well. But on the bright side, the pool, jacuzzi, and lani were perfect. Even though the weather was a little chilly the grandkids were enjoying playing in the pool everyday.
Our family (all 11 of us) enjoyed our time at the Villa!
The house was neat and clean, the pool and hot tub in the private backyard (with a huge screened in area) were a huge hit, and the location was a perfect distance to the beach! We found the house nicely decorated for Christmas, which was an added bonus! Thank you for the hospitality!
