An amazing villa, a true home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for only six days but wished for longer. The overall feel of the area was one of peace and tranquility and the wildlife around the canal at night made it feel as if you far from the other villa's.

What the villa has to offer is beyond words, we felt at home as soon as the front door was opened. Having breakfast outside in December is a wonderful experience,the lanai and pool area is a great chill out zone. Jacuzzi was great fun and a fantastic place to relax and retell to each other the sights and sounds of the day.

There is nothing bad to be said about the villa or Rotonda but Baco Grande was the most beautiful area we visited in our short stay. Wildlife here was fascinating and a real pleasure to see animals in their natural habitat, dolphins, stingrays and ospreys among a few we witnessed.

It is in our plans to come back to the area and this property will be the first on list as to where to stay.

A wonderful holiday at Osprey!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website really do not do justice to how beautiful and fully equipped this villa truly is. As stated in other reviews, the villa is quiet and private. Upon arrival it was clean and welcoming. The beds were comfortable as were the linens. We enjoyed many mornings and evenings out on the lanai enjoying the pool which was comfortable, clean and warm as was the spa. We enjoyed the close proximity to the conservation area as we sighted several different birds. Our boys spotted the alligator several times in the canal as well as a soft-shelled turtle and a tortoise along the road.

The BBQ grill was not at the villa when we arrived which was late on the Sunday. I called the property manager the next morning and he graciously brought over his own personal grill (before noon) to use as the others were all rented out. What service! He was so kind. The kitchen is amazing - much above other rentals. It is fully equipped for either a pool meal or a dinner as I was able to make a full Christmas meal with all the trimmings.

We didn't use the bicycles as they were a bit too big for our two younger boys which wasn't an issue as we did go for some nature walks instead. Thank you for the abundance of linens, especially the towels for the pool area. We also enjoyed the use of the cooler box and the beach chairs at Englewood beach where we found 17 shark teeth in a matter of ten minutes - great fun for our young boys. We had amazing weather for the week with temperatures as high as 29.

I also want to add how easy it was to work with Stephen and the rental process. He was very quick to answer any of our questions and/or concerns - very professional and courteous. We hope to return to Osprey again soon. Thank you for helping to make our Christmas vacation a delight!!

Great Place Luv it

  • 5 of 5

Having stopped on Rotunda many times at various houses I found this is to be very nice and comfortable house everything we required was there and excellently presented, close to everything beaches shops etc. Being at the end of the road and adjacent to the wildlife preserve all sorts of animals and birds turn up. We will be booking again without issue.

Rotonda is the ideal place to spend a quiet holiday yet have easy access to all facilities and to some stunning scenery. The area around 'Osprey' is a nature-lovers paradise and 'Osprey''s nature diary bears testament to the remarkable range of species that can be spotted - armadillos, gopher tortoises, alligators, birds of prey, herons, egrets, cardinals, jays - the list goes on and on.

The Cape Haze area also offers plenty to do for those who enjoy beaches, golf, shopping or the arts. Locally, there are plenty of excellent restaurants, supermarkets and all essential facilities, whilst within one and a half hours drive are many other places to visit such as Sarasota, Venice, Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Islands and the Everglades.
