A haven of peace

  • 5 of 5

This villa has it all: space (e.g. master suite with walk-in closet in the bathroom), comfort (carpets in the bedrooms), utilities (swimming-pool w/jacuzzi, BBQ-grill, kitchen, bikes...) and location. Thanks to the view directly on the canal, we could even spot a decent bunch of gators.

For the ones in love of Charlotte county like us, this house is ideally located in a beautiful neighborhood within 10-minute reach of the beaches and the main roads.

We highly recommend it.

Great Setting but House Was a Disappointment

  • 2 of 5

This property has a handsome location. The lanai overlooks a canal--lots of wildlife viewing--with trees across the way. There are also empty lots on either side of the house, so both the location and view are very private.

Unfortunately, the house itself has significant problems. The pool leaks (verified by the people who deal with it) and the leak is significant enough so you have to use the hose to add water to the pool for a couple of hours almost every day. There is a spa--one of the reasons we rented the house--but the mechanism for turning it on (heat, filter) is old and outdated. Instead of simply pushing a button as at other properties, you have to turn the system off, then shut the valves to the pool, then turn on the valves for the spa, then adjust the heat, then turn the system on again. It's complicated and time consuming, and it should be replaced.

The house itself is handsomely furnished, but very dark. The living room lighting is really poor. We had to change the bulbs but that didn't help much. Cable TV is completely basic. Many kitchen skillets and pans are badly gouged and are in desperate need of replacement. Kitchen stove is old and burners don't work well. Master bedroom linens are worn and thin. Master bedroom mattress and all bedroom pillows are uncomfortable.

Management tries to be accommodating, but there isn't much they can do because they don't own the house, they only manage it.

This is a lovely house and an ideal vacation rental. It is very well equipped and all of the furnishing are first class. Lou and Rita, the property managers are the best. They are very responsive and they take care of business. They are a pleasure to work with. Because of vacant adjoining lots, there is much privacy. We spent hours in the pool and enjoying the screened lanai overlooking a small canal. This is a great place to spend a dream vacation.

A very comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Rotonda for the past 5 years. This is our first year in this villa and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. A very comfortable home with all the required amenities. Very private with no immediate neighbours and no homes across the canal. A great location. Lou and Rita, the property managers have been excellent. A pleasure to deal with. Our daughter and two of our grand children (6 and 2 1/2) spent a week with us.They loved the pool and the playground that is a short walk away. We will be returning next year for 3 months. We hope this will be our Florida home for 3 months for many years to come.

Best place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Though this exact property wasn't available do to our pet, Lou and Rita were very quick to offer another location that was just as nice. A private spa and pool with plenty of space for the three of us to kick back and relax. The house was spotless with a few extras that we weren't expecting. Two mountain bikes were at our disposal to go explore the area and neighboring communities. Plenty of privacy as there weren't any close by neighbors. And a few things in the kitchen that eased the pain of cooking, and a barbecue grill that we got a lot of use of. Every question that we had was promptly answered through email or by phone. Lou and Rita were very pleasant to work with and we look forward to renting with them again.

Dejligt hus til en god ferie.

  • 5 of 5

Super lækkert hus, med alle de ting som skal være der til et godt ophold. Dejlig pool og spa med overdækning af fint net, så der ikke er nogle insekter. Dejlige håndklæder og badehåndklæder til stranden. Vaskemaskine og tørretumbler.

Området kan godt være lidt øde, men ikke langt til lækre strande, hvor der er mulighed for at finde forstenede hajtænder og andre forsteninger.
