About The Owner

We are Nigel & Barbara, a married couple from Portsmouth in England. Our villa was completed in 2003, an investment as part of our retirement planning. Photograph is from our 2008 vacation in Madeira.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Pine Valley

We visited Rotonda a few years ago and fell in love with the tranquility of the area. We both enjoy being on or near water and enjoy wildlife and the outdoors generally. Rotonda has everything we could wish for; there's a lake and golf course at the rear of our secluded location that attracts a wide variety of birds and wildlife. Nigel is a keen golfer so the combination of the many quality golf courses and the nearby beaches 10 minutes drive makes it the perfect, relaxing location for us.

What makes this villa unique

Rotonda is so peaceful and quiet that we can't help but relax when there. Being just a 90 minute drive from Tampa, we can leave the UK in the morning, drive via the supermarket for pizza, chilled beer and wine, and other essentials and be in our villa, unpacked and 'on holiday' the same evening. The whole region - away from the big towns like Sarasota and Naples - is very laid back, a bit like stepping back in time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this beautiful home this past new years week, and absolutely loved it! This home is gorgeous, beautifully decorated and sooo clean! It's in such a nice quiet neighborhood. The home also is equipped with pool toys, beach chairs & umbrellas for those days you want to spend at Boca Grande Beach. Loved, Loved, loved staying here, and we hope to Come back again!

A wonderful gathering place for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the open kitchen /family room/dining. The pool had a separate safety fence which was perfect for our younger grandchildren. The internet didn’t work while we were there but to our surprise our son said he was glad because we played more games in the evening. The only disappointment was the double bed in the master.

House was wonderful, easy to locate with directions provided by Nigel. We loved the surrounding area, went to different beaches every day, really loved boca grande. The home was excellent, stylish and comfortable, with all necessary accessories. Thank you we had a great time.

We have been visiting the Englewood (Rotonda area for 20 years. The house is well situated and the area, particularly Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda is now returning to its pre 2007/8 quality. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The home exceeded our expectations. The pool was so warm we didn't want to get out of it. We saw a bobcat going past the pool and he wasn't concerned that we were sitting at the lanai watching him. Over all a great vacation.

Beautiful House in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The house is really located in a nice Location of Rotonda West - beautiful road and very quiet Location. The house itself is very comfortable, very clean and nice furnished. You have all what you need - everything is available. Great is the pool outside with the gas barbque and great furniture to sit outside.

We recommend this house 100%

Nice, but there was no pool heat and very little was needed.

  • 3 of 5

The house is as pictured and was clean on the inside on arrival with no check-in issues. It has a nice layout and is well equipped with only moderate wear. Check out requirements are minimal to none, and there are no unreasonable tasks to complete on exit which can be an issue with some rentals of this type. We have rented many homes by the week and this was at least average to above in our experience.

Location is quiet and residential with no issues. It is located in Rotunda which a 10 minute ride to most anything from that particular location. The circular streets in Rotunda are not complete all the way around, so for this location you have to go all the way out to outer loop to get to street that will take you to inner loop from which you can proceed to stores or the beach etc. No traffic or issues, just a drive. Figure 25 - 30 minutes to get to a beach (Englewood or Boca Grande).

Wifi, TV etc worked fine, but the cable service was not HD which we worked around for the football games using the wifi.

Why only a 3 star? Well 3.5 is more accurate. It was a major disappointment to everyone that the pool heater did not work and the water was quite cold. The weather had very warm for months and Gulf of Mexico was 78 degrees on the beach, but the pool was just 70 so it got no use at all. There was a contact that might have responded on this, but it takes a number of days to restore heat with solar heating because the ground also needs to be warmed. Not worth the frustration on vacation.

The cleaners ignore the outside so the front door really put you off on arrival until you cleaned it yourself, and the windows in the common rooms could hardly be seen out, so we went out and washed those. Not a big deal, but not a 5 star either.

Finally, it took a month to approve my deposit return even though everything had been left exactly as found or requested on the documents. Hope I see it after this review.

The owner is easy to deal with and the issues we had were pretty much entirely due to the quality of the contacted services. We were there in November and do not know if there had been other fall rentals or not. If not, first guests can have these issue in Florida.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed with your rating of 3.5 stars, which would seem to be almost entirely due to something that could have been easily rectified; if you were not happy with the pool temperature our management company could have switched on the solar heating, and would have advised you to use the pool blanket, which is stored in the garage. We have found that this works very quickly and is not affected by ground temperature as the solar panels are mounted on the roof. We are very pleased that you liked our villa and the area, it is indeed very quiet and we are glad that you were happy with the proximity of all the amenities in the area. We take great pride in the condition and cleanliness of our home and are disappointed to hear that the front door was dusty and that a window needed cleaning, we will raise this with our management company; however, we were delighted that the inside was as pictured and clean. It was stated that it can take up to 6 weeks for damage deposits to be returned as there are quite few processes that have to be completed before VRBO can do this; our records show that they withdrew the money from our account on the 21st December – just over 3 weeks after you checked out, we are sorry if it was not returned to you immediately, but that is beyond our control.
