Owner's Response: Hi! Good to hear from you & thanks for review. We did add a further BBQ back in January 2016 so now have one on the lanai & one outside as some guests said they preferred being outside the lanai area! Hope to see you visiting again soon Thanks Lisa

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Great choice for a family get-together for Christmas week. All 8 of us had our own beds and noone was sleeping on a living room pullout. The home is clean. We barbequed Christmas day dinner for 15 and ate on the Lanai. The swimming pool and game room were highlights. Very nice neighborhood to walk, run and bicycle. Location is great to just about everything. And of course, we loved the sun and the beach every day. Christmas magic.

Excellent Villa. Perfect for a Relaxing Family Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted rest and relaxation after a hectic week visiting the Orlando Theme Parks, and this villa was perfect for achieving that goal.

This is a large family sized villa with a good size pool, a spacious interior that has been well kept and very clean. Four large double / twin bedrooms, and an enormous master ensuite. The Kitchen is well-equipped, two Dining Rooms, a Lounge with TV and DVD, and WiFi that works well throughout the villa. We had everything we needed, and more, for a great holiday.

The villa is situated in a quiet, peaceful community -- you wouldn't know you had neighbours.

We enjoyed evenings sitting by the Pool, which is fully enclosed in a netted lanai to keep any insects and other small 'critters' away. We also enjoyed the lovely views by the Pool of the River that runs behind the villa. We saw all sorts of bird life, and 'wild life' like alligators, and a snake that slithered quickly across the road outside the property.

The villa is located a short drive away from some beautiful white sandy beaches with supermarkets, like Walmart and Publix close by for retail therapy. We especially enjoyed a morning coffee and freshly baked muffin at Manatee Beans and Brews in nearby Englewood (https://www.facebook.com/ManateeBeansBrewsEnglewoodFL/) - well worth a visit.

Overall, a perfect place for a restful holiday. Our family had a wonderful time.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to our friends & family and would return.

Great holiday home, perfect for a fun family break!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely big family villa with good size pool, so spacious inside we kept getting lost! Everything you need for a lovely holiday away from it all. 4 big double/twin bedrooms and the master ensuite was huge.

Well equipped Kitchen, 2 dining areas and a Lounge with full tv dvd and cable set up. Wifi worked well throughout the property and games room provided extra entertainment value.

Friendly family feel to the villa meant we were at home straight away.

Lovely views from the pool patio along the river that runs behind all the properties, we saw bald eagles, a giant stork, alligators and lots of turtles as well as a number of different wading birds. Pool is fully enclosed in a netted lanai that keeps any flies away.

Rotonda Estate's roads are all flat and quiet, so good for cycling and waterways extend around the estate. Villas are spread out so the area is very quiet and peaceful. Explored all the beaches along a 40 mile stretch of coast which were all good - our favourites were Bocca Grande and Sanibel.

For culture visit Edison Ford Winter Gardens & Museum in Fort Myers.

For restaurants Venice was best, lots in the town but also try The Crow's Nest (upstairs) at the Marina, as well as Fisherman' Village at Punta Grande for perfect sunsets over Port Charlotte Bay.

All in all a perfect place for a restful holiday.

Great relaxing retreat with wildlife on doorstep

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the holiday at the villa! It had a great lanai for sitting out in evenings even when it rained! Very nice to see wildlife and the villa is located in a peaceful area. Nice that the master bedroom is on one side of the villa and the 3 other bedrooms for kids on the other! Nice beaches locally and good selection of restaurants in Port Charlotte not far away. Kids loved garage for games and wifi was very good and fast! No hesitation to recommend and would return.
