Our month in Paradise!!!
Our month in Paradise!!!
This was the first time we rented this property. We could not have been more pleased. From the first day of entering the door, we had a sense of peace. The house was immaculate from top to bottom. The kitchen was stocked with everything necessary for great meals. The lanai with its sparkling pool and toasty hot tub was fantastic. The whole house sound system provided wonderful music as we sat by the pool. The view over the canal from the lanai provided more wildlife viewings than can be counted: heron, grackles, cardinals, egret and, yes, alligators. We're sure we not only saw "George" the alligator but his extended family members as well. We even saw a stunning bald eagle dive for a fish and take off across the canal. One morning we saw a pair of spectacular Sandhill Cranes directly in back of the screen cage. They stayed for quite some time. We walked the quiet neighborhood roads every morning, toured the area seeing Dearborn Street in Englewood which has a spectacular farmer's market every Thursday, the beautiful old florida atmosphere of Boca Grande only 14 miles away, sunsets at Englewood Beach with a wonderful drumming circle one evening at sunset...great meals at some fabulous cafes and restaurants, the historic town of Venice Beach with its wonderful shops and cafes as well as the Venice Beach Pier which is wonderful for bird and people watching. We could go on forever about the accommodations and the area. The property is very convenient to several beaches and shopping areas yet it is tucked away in a serene and peaceful environment. Perfect! Lastly, property management folks were extremely helpful and cordial when we had a few initial questions. Many thanks to them! The memories of our February in your wonderful home, Andy, will remain with us. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven! We hope to be back in the future!

Fabulous holiday in fabulous surroundings
Fabulous holiday in fabulous surroundings
After a fabulous holiday with my family at the villa l have decided to leave you my feelings about the Whole adventure. On arrival the house was immaculate and all that l had expected when l booked. Everything was a pleasure to see and use ,nothing left to chance all first class. All the amenities were first class and nothing left to chance ,pool was fabulous ideal for the leisure that we needed .plenty of home from home comforts just to make our stay special. The plants and all the flowers were all in full bloom so it made it all so marvellous the resident croc was about so we managed togetso good photos of him. We managed to use the bikes as a bit of exercise the local breakfast cafe was a good ride in a morning . Bushe gardens was a very good day out worth the trip not that far really. Plenty to do around the area and the whole family found plenty to keep us busy. Restaurant ,golf ,fishing,swimming you name it we did it . Expect to book again as enjoyed it so much Thanks Andy for all your help and assistance in making it a pleasurable holiday.

Owner response: Hi Alex and family Thank you for your kind comments and i am so glad you all enjoyed your stay and made full use of the villa and its amenities and thank you for leaving it as you found it as the managament co said they looked forward to your return in 2013. I am glad you found the local attractions as i tried to direct you too. The gattor at the bottom of the garden has been in the area for six years and is part of the attraction and as you can see perfectly safe The bikes do allow you to go on the nature trails and the area is so flat its a nice ride for breakfast and groseries at the local shops. When you decide you would like to go again i would be more than happy to arange your car hire again. With the golf cources being so close i aggree you were spoilt for choice and if you do as you said and bring your freinds next time then my freind has anouther luxury villa near mine so we could cater for you all I hope to hear from you in the new year Kind regards Andy I hope to see you in the new year

Hi Andy Thank you for letting us stay at your beutifull villa in Rotonda it was just as discribed in the spec. Nice and clean very well presented and a helpfull maintanance co. The pool and Spa were in constant use as it was so nice and with the sun on the pool all day we had a wonderfull time lazing about on the loungers We have been to Rotonda several times and this was the best villa by far with the nice calm atmosphere and constant wildlife passing by. We were very impressed with the spec of the villa with the HDtv"s and PS2/3 players which is a lot more than you would expect from a Holiday villa let alone your own personel home Once again thank you and we will be back in the future Regards

Fantastic villa - great location - spotless!
Fantastic villa - great location - spotless!
Booked a very last minute week away and was a bit nervous about doing everything at such speed. However, we shouldn't have worried as the villa was great. We arrived very late so couldn't get a real feel of everything until the morning. The back of the villa overlooks the waterway and the views were super. The pool was nice and large and we saw lots of wildlife which the kids enjoyed. The villa itself was nice, spacious and clean with lots of little extra touches to make it really feel like home-from-home. Rotonda is a great place to base yourself and then go out and about exploring the surrounding area - although a car is very much a necessity. The beaches were so clean and empty, plenty of local restaurants to choose from; many championship golf courses and we would definitely recommend booking a sunset boat tour in the hope of seeing some dolphins. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and we would recommend Rotonda and this villa to others who want to escape from the maddening crowds and chill for a while. Thanks Andy !

Owner response: Thank you for your comments on the villa,Rotonda and the surounding area. I was happy to take your late booking and am so glad you loved the villa and its aspect on the canal and thank you for leaving it as you found it. Yes there are a lot of things to do espetially if you like Golf. Water sports, Nature resurves. Biking on the nice flat roads, I pride myself on the clean welcoming nature of the house and try my utmost to have all the latest features included so that my guests want for nothing during there stay. I go to the house at least four times a year to make sure the house doesnt get stale and in need of refurbishment so the maintanance program is in constant review with the latest updates as required. If you find that you have more time on your hands for a longer stay then you will be more than welcome to return and i have now installed a PS3 in the lounge for your childrens amusement Regards Andy

Not what I paid for
Not what I paid for
I have been visiting Rotonda since 2004. I have rented several vrbo villas and never had any issues with the villa or owner. This particular rental had pool and hot tub issues that the owner admitted to knowing about prior to our arrival. The entire time that I should have been relaxing, I was either on the phone with the manager, putting water in the pool and hot tub, turning valves I knew nothing about. I paid for heat in the hot tub...it didn't work. When we arrived, the pool looked like pond water. They did send someone out but it was never vacuumed and the chemicals were so strong we couldn't use it for a day or. I live in the mountains of TN and have cleaner water in the creeks than I did in the pool at this rental. Carpet was very stained and the play station didn't work. I also had to keep flipping the breakers to get the outlets to work in the kitchen. Andy, the owner, was very responsive prior to me renting. Once I got there, it was a different story. If he knew there was a problem with the pool leaking and the heat in the hot tub not working...he should have notified me and gave me the option to find another rental. That would have been the right thing to do. A week after being home, I still can't get him to respond to me about my security deposit or refunding my $90 for hot tub heat that didn't work. I did my part...I paid him in a timely manner. I should receive the same respect. Vacations are to relax. Get away from all the troubles for a few days! Not this vacation! Frustrated and disappointed in TN!

Owner response: I have been on VRBO since 2006 and this is the first negative review i have recived due to malicious allegations The pool service is weekly on tuesday the guest arrived 8pm Saturday night after rainstorms which effect the pool quality nessesitating extra maintanance on Tuesday. The pool had a suspected leak off 1" per three days which was programed to be investigated when all guest had gone to reduce inconvenionce and disruption. They were asked to put the water hose in for 10 mins as required but this was "not my job" The Spa heater trip switch was found to have triped due to the storms so a $90 refund was offerd. The Playstation power lead had been moved by a previouse renter and was easly found. Five times my Management co asked to attend the house but was refused access to solve the problem When the renter moved out at 4am we could see why they didnt want a maintanance call. The house wes in Total "disaray" The air conditioning control was altered and froze up The BBQ was used and not cleaned as set out on vrbo there was damage to the third bedroom walls which needed maintanance There was BBQ food left in Fridge but they denied using it The carpets had candy sqwashed into them requiring cleaning There was no attempt to put the pool deck Toys and chairs back where they were found. Sand from the beach was found in the Hot tub with no attempt to clean and they denied using it (with three kids) The bed sheets were not put in the washer on Departure which is normal practice to help the cleaners. As i was the next person to be at the house i asked the management not to touch it so i could see the damage and take pictures for future action. This is the one and only time i have had to withhold a security deposit due to a total disrespect for other peoples property and for me to reinstate the house (my home)to its previose well maintained condition. I always have total contact with my guests and have been congratulated for my friendly easy way of doing business The guest has left this negative review as a way to justify there obviouse lack of renting etecate
We have been travelling to what we call our paradise Rotonda almost every year since 1994 staying in various houses but must say this house by far was one of the better houses and the cleanest we have stayed in. very relaxing by the pool & jacuzzi day & night. the villa is well equipped with everything you need. we stayed for 23 days but just didn't want to leave. the surounding area & beaches are beautiful especially Boco Grande shark fishing off the beach is a must. we do hope to return again next year and look forward to rebooking. thank you again Andy for a lovely stay.

Owner response: Thank you Val and Ian I hope your stay at the villa allowed you to chill out after your hectic year you have just been thru Would love for you to come back if you are in the area again Regards Andy
If you are looking for a fully functional well equipped holiday home this is the place to stay. I have just returned from a two week stay in this Villa. I have to say that the pictures do not give it the justice it deserves and the whole ambiance of the villa is something I find hard to put into words. The owner has provided everything to make your stay as easy as possible. The area is calm and peaceful enabling you to relax. The surrounding area, has stunning beaches and good restaurants, not only that you have privy to wonderful wildlife just sitting by the pool, or enjoying an evening meal on the patio area and watching the stars at night. I truly recommend this to anyone who wants to have an insight of heaven on earth. (In fact I liked it so much I have offered to stay there for ever).

We spent February and March at Andy's villa, and we could not have had a better time. The house is perfect, the location is great, and the property management people are very helpful. I'd rent again from Andy.
