About the property

Exquisite large 3 bed home, stunning pool/ hot tub & summer kitchen in Lanai

Our villa has been decorated to the highest standard, all fixtures and fittings have been designed by an interior designer. Our villa is a large family home with 2 seating areas, 3 dining areas and 3 bedrooms.

The main bedroom has fitted bedroom furniture with plenty of storage space. There is a dressing table and bedside tables. The main ensuite bathroom has a large corner bath, two sinks for him and her complete with vanity units underneath. There is a separate toilet and a large walk in shower.

Both double guestrooms have their own Jack and Jill bathroom and are also fully furnished with plenty of storage space and both rooms have their own flat screen tv. Large fully equipped kitchen, American fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker, dishwasher. Fully equipped separate utility room. Formal and informal dining area - Outside lanai with sunbeds and table and chairs, large pool with hot tub. Summer kitchen with BBQ. Shower area and separate bathroom

The villa is on the Golfing Community of Rotonda. There are 5 golf courses less than 2 minutes away from the villa. Just 2 minutes walk from the villa is a children's play area containing BBQ areas, bicycle paths and walkways.

There are numerous large supermarkets, like Winn Dixie and Walmart only 5 minutes drive away. There are plenty of good restaurants to choose from only a very short drive away including Dennys (the breakfast here is excellent!). There are too many to mention and they are all very good. All the restaurants cater for families with children and the children are well looked after. Our children used to rate the restaurants on how good the colouring books and activities are rather than the food!

Old Englewood is a 15 minute drive away and is a quaint small town with many shops and restaurants including a very good wine bar which serves excellent tapas - you can sit outside and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a good glass of wine! There is also live entertainment here on certain evenings.

The beaches along the Gulf Coast are sandy and long - they are safe for children and there is plenty to do on the beaches. Looking for sharks teeth is a local pastime on Englewood beach. There is also picnic areas on Englewood beach along with a walk way. On the other side of the road to the beach you can find plenty of restaurants to eat and watch the sun go down. Venice beach is long and has a pier to walk along and watch the fishermen at the end. You can hire a fishing rod and try to catch your own fish! Sharkeys on the pier is an excellent place to eat and the portions are large and filling. The children have their own menus and ice creams along with their own cocktails! We watched the sun go down whilst drinking a cool beer - heaven!

You can hire a boat for the day and go out into the Gulf. On the day we went on a boat we saw lots of dolphins swimming along side us. You can stop at any beach that takes your fancy along the way!

If you want to visit the theme parks, Walt Disney World and Universal (to name only two!) are a 2 and a half hour drive away. You can book a hotel close to the parks and after a few days of visiting the theme parks travel back to tranquility and peace in your own comfortable home from home. A holiday in our villa suits old and young alike, everyone gets the best holiday, whether you take time out to visit the theme parks in Orlando or simply sit by the pool or beach at our villa.

Great location for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time in Rotonda West. We keep coming back for the peacefulness of the area and for great accommodations like the Starfish Villa. And for this vacation, it did not disappoint. The villa was wonderfully stocked will all the amenities and nothing was missing. We especially appreciated the pool and spa which we enjoyed everyday. We will definitely be back to the area and maybe to the Starfish villa if available.

Excellent Villa, all you need for your stay

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was clean and tidy, equipped with everything you need for your stay. Owed by a couple who obviously take pride with the ownership of the property.

I have no problem recommending this property to any future prospective holidaymaker!

Thank you to the owners, Denise & John for the use of their home.

Fabulous Villa In Quiet Area.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a 2 week stay at the Starfish Villa. We joined our friends whom had been there the week before. It's a beautiful 3 bedroomed villa all on one floor with loads of space and so well equipped. It was spotlessly clean. The pool area is huge and has its own outside kitchen area with a built in BBQ. There is also a toilet and shower. Great sun loungers and a great table with lovely chairs for eating outdoors. The area is so quiet.

Winn Dixie is a 5 min drive. Loads of shopping and dining in the area. Would thoroughly recommend staying here and hope to come back someday.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It had everything we needed, in a great location, and it was very clean! It was a nice warming welcome when walking into the house and getting hit with a scent of freshness. The neighborhood is peaceful and a nice area to ride your bikes, take walks, and go on runs. The pool was clean and beautiful as well, and the speakers around the house were a great addition to make the house as entertaining as possible. Winn-Dixie was a five minute drive and the nicest beaches in Florida were less than an hour drive away. It was stocked with beach chairs, towels, and pool toys! We went to Venice Beach, Siesta Key, and Myakka Park to see alligators. It was a blast! We would definitely recommend this to anyone who was a nice relaxing vacation in beautiful weather. Denise, thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
