Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for was available. Great communication from the owners. Master shower was superb. Very open and spacious. Very clean and saw an alligator every day in the channel right behind the house. Just an AWESOME stay would definitely recommend family and friends and would rent again if the need arose and house was available. Of course the pool was relaxing.

Property 56337 on the Rotonda was one of the best we have stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located perfectly to be close to local beaches and near to very good eateries (eg at Stump Pass). The villa is superbly equipped for a very comfortable stay with such a wide variety of wildlife to watch that time just flies by. It was spotlessly clean and very obviously the pride and joy of the owners. Relaxing by the pool, using the spa, eating in or out - its all a pleasure when you know that the villa that is your base is so good. I have no criticism whatsoever and would gladly use the villa again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone - friends relatives or anyone who reads this review.

We found the villa easily on the inner circle of the Rotonda and on entering found a very welcoming and clean interior. The cupboards were very well equipped and we wanted for nothing by way of cutlery, plates cups etc etc. There were plastic plates etc for use by our grandchildren and on the patio area.

The pool area was spotless and we used it every day at least twice, morning and evening which was great.

We ate out a few times as the local restaurants are excellent and this villa is very well placed to access some very good local places to eat.

I would recommend to anyone a sunset cruise from Fisherman's Village at Punta Gorda, Airboat Rides at Peace River Charters, Jet Skis at Englewood and a visit to Boca Grande to see Manitees in the wild just a few feet from the beach.

All in all a great place to be and a great villa to stay in.

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.

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.
