About Shaun Wakelen
We are an English couple living in the UK who fell in love with Florida back in 2002. After renting properties for our annual vacations, we eventually bought our own home here in Rotonda. We just love the area, the people and all that the Gulf Coast has to offer. What better place to relax and get away from it all..
Shaun Wakelen purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Shaun Wakelen chose Pinehurst
After renting places in Spring Hill and Bradenton, we eventually had a vacation in Rotonda and fell in love with the place. Easy access to beaches and shops, and the various activities the area has to offer. Our quiet and peaceful neighborhood is an ideal place to relax, but still within easy reach of the tourist attractions of the Everglades and the Tampa/Orlando theme parks.
What makes this Villa unique
Within easy reach of beaches and shops, and a fully equipped holiday home.
Pool / Spa
Perfect villa in a relaxed setting
The villa is located in a quiet street and is very private as there are no immediate neighbours. The pool area is not overlooked from any direction and the lanai was where we spent the majority of our time. The pool is a nice size and we did not require it heated as it is in the sun for most of the day.
The villa has all the amenities required for a good vacation along with a few extra bonus items. The golf clubs and bikes in the garage were appreciated and used.
The villa is tastefully decorated and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. The larder had additional bonus spices, coffee etc. that saved you from having to supply these.
I will definitely return to the area and use Shaun's property again as he was a pleasure to deal with.
Great house for vacation
We enjoyed our stay in this house, everything was as we expected, quiet area, close to stores, beaches.
