A Wonderful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here with our three children and we absolutely loved this house! The pool is well cared for and our kids spent hours playing in it! The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, the kitchen is large and well-equipped, and the couches in the tv room are awesome! We appreciated the "extra amenities" as well; like the beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, and pool toys. The house looks just "as advertised" in the photos. We were so happy with our experience and appreciated the kindness and promptness of the owners when we sent questions. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Christy, We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed staying in our home. Having vacationed with kids we wanted to provide the little extras that make life easier and more enjoyable for our guests, both kids and parents alike. We also wanted to equip the house with everything that's needed for a relaxing holiday. Credit also goes to our Dave and Dawn who manage our home for us. They do a fantastic job looking after the house and pool and are always on hand if guests need them at any time. Thanks so much for staying with us and hopefully we may have you and your family back to stay again sometime.

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Rotonda but the first at this villa so we were a little apprehensive when we arrived as you never really know what you're going to get until you walk through the front door. We needn't have worried as it was absolutely perfect! The villa was spotless and everything looked as though it was brand new, it's a really good size too and even if there were six people staying there would be plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is equipped with everything that you'd possibly need in case you didn't want to eat out and there's easy access to the pool area for outside dining. The sofas and beds are really comfortable as well which is always important.

We're particularly fussy about where we stay but with this villa you can't go wrong and we will definitely be returning!

Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at a number of properties in the Rotonda and Cape Haze area. Kate and Ken have put together one of the cleanest and most nicely equipped houses we have had. Everything was so clean when we arrived, it felt like we were coming home to our own house. The pool was kept up nicely by Dave with whom I enjoyed morning chats when he would stop by. Dave and Dawn are the best caretakers we have ever had. They had prepared everything so nicely, we had little reason to call them except to thank them when we left! Thank you Kate and Ken for all you put into making this happen!

Our second year at the Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation at the Villa. We were able to book 6 weeks this year. Our experience was the same as our first. Exceptionally clean , comfortable and all the comforts of home and more. The house is located on one of the best streets in Rotonda , Boundary Blvd. You are also located close to the main street's exiting Rotonda which makes it easier and faster to Mc Call Rd and most of the shopping and super markets. Your a short drive to many of the area's beaches and restaurants and what you will find is not allot of chain restaurants but locally owned and each having their distinct menu and identity. We love Farlows on the Water. Also Boca Grande is our favorite beach. White sand and plenty of room to park your chairs and umbrella 's. The most important thing for us is the customer friendliness of the owners Kate & Ken . They always respond in a timely manner to any problem or concern and have made each visit for us a great experience. If you love a quiet , relaxing and lay back vacation , you'll love this Villa and the Rotonda area.

Excellent Villa, No Complaints!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at this villa for three weeks, and we loved every second of it!

Very nicely decorated, with all modern facilities we required. The WiFi worked excellently for our requirements (skype, researching activities, booking accommodation). The villa was in a very cleanly state upon our arrival. We were aware that a management company must have paid visits to tend to the garden on the property, but they at no point disturbed our stay.

The beds and sofa were so comfortable, we would have brought them home with us if we could!

The location was excellent. In nice quiet area which meant relaxing by the pool with no disturbances. Local stores and eateries are only a 5 minute drive away. For travels further afield we found this to be an excellent base to start from. 2-3 hour drive from the main theme parks, 3 hours to Miami, a 6 hour drive back from Key West. All easily done in a day and close enough to the main highways that they were no problem to navigate.

We will definitely be booking another stay again….. and bringing a bag big enough to squeeze those sofas into!!! Thanks!
