About The Owner

I have my own gardening business, in the south of England

My hobby is golf and I am the Sussex County Captain

and the South East England EGU Boys manager.

Jane is a Hairdresser, and plays far more golf than me!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

If you like seclusion and luxury , this is the one for you!!

with no neighbours, you really can relax with no worries, if you want that song turned up, who cares!

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Richard & Linda Pink;

One of the loveliest Villas we have stayed in, loved the Golf Clubs and the Bikes, more like a home than most.

Tony & Pam Whalley;

3 generations of our Family have enjoyed a wonderful week, after our time at Disney. The Villa is fantastic, and we would like to think we would come back soon.

Armstrong Family;

The Photos cannot begin to portray the spendour of this villa!

We are very envious, and want to retire now!

Who knows you might have new neighbours!

Gibson Family

Our First time in America, could not have picked a better place

no so much a home from home, but pure luxury!

Very well kept house!

  • 5 of 5

House was more than expected. Very well kept. Very clean. Alan, and Jane were a pleasure to work with. We were impressed with the area, and Port Charlotte overall. The pool made the trip. Kids stayed in pool morning and night. Everyone agreed it was best vacation ever. Look forward to returning. Thanks, Rick

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the lovely and spacious home which was perfectly located in a quiet and serene environment. We were close to bike trails, tennis, and Gasparilla island as well as all the shopping locations. The open floor plan was convenient for our large family meals and conversations. I highly recommend this home.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I've found every minute of my stay to be perfect. I couldn't find anything wrong with my stay if I wanted to. This house has literally everything for you so you can travel light. It's a very quiet neighborhood and no neighbors close to you so privacy was 100 percent. If your thinking about booking a stay here just do it. It is definitely worth it and then some. Thank you Alan for making my family's vacation perfect. Will definitely come again next year.
