  • Great girls getaway!

    "Just finished a wonderful birthday celebration at Shirley's Way! From the moment you set eyes on the most incredible, breath taking view, it feels like paradises. From the long walks on the beach, the thrill of watching manatee's and dolphins swimming by as you play in the water. To the magnificent sunsets from the deck. Shirleys Way has it all. Comfy cozy clean and that quaint island feel! My paradise."

  • Fantasy Island condo

    "We found this unit to be well equipped with everything we could possibly want or need. We had a very comfortable stay. Our only issue we had was the size of the bed in the master bedroom. We are both very tall, so the double bed didn't work for us, although we had twin beds in the second bedroom for one of us. We love Englewood Beach and come as often as we can. Fantasy Island is very convenient to all the beaches in the area, very good restaurants and close to Venice and Sarasota. We recommend this 2nd floor condo to most everyone."

  • One of a Kind!

    "My wife and I have been wintering in Rotonda for 10 years and have always appreciated the villas we have stayed in. Tina's home sets a new standard of unmatched excellence. We expect rental Villas to be clean, functional and well appointed. Tina's villa is extrordinary. The location is ideal with sun on the pool deck all day. It is quiet and it is private. It is extremely well layed out for the two of us and if family or friends visit over night they can enjoy their own privacy in a separate wing of the home. The furnishings are more than comfortable and the kitchen is equipped with virtually everything you could imagine or want whatever your culinary skills might require. It is clear Tina takes a great deal of pride in the ownership of her home and it shows. We hope to make this our winter destination for many years to come."

  • Fantastic Family Getaway

    "We travelled from Toronto with our young kids (4 and 7) and had a wonderful time. The absence of cars made staying on the island so peaceful! The house is in very good condition, had all of the items we needed and lots we hadn't expected (including beach toys, movies, books, games, etc.). We swam every day at the club and played tennis there too. From the deck we saw dolphins daily as well as tons of birds and other wildlife. The beach directly in front of the house is extremely pretty and has soft clean white sand. The water is a little rough in that area - so we put lifejackets on the kids when they played in the water there. We also drove the little golf cart and explored other beaches on the island - many of which have calm shallow spots for swimming. We rented kayaks one morning and had a great time looking for manatees. We didn't see any on that journey, but saw them a number of times in the little marina area. We ate out a few times for dinner and enjoyed those meals. The only store we're aware of on the island was extremely small and had very limited supplies so you should definitely bring everytihng you need with you. Jane and Jeff were extremely helpful and friendly. We have every intention of coming again."
