Why Rocsy and Dan chose White Marsh
We come to Florida various times a year .. when we saw this house, we decided it was time to have our own piece of paradise
What makes this Villa unique
When we entered the house for the first time and looked past the large and bright expanse of the dining room all the way through to the pool and freshwater canal, we felt it was unique ...

Great house, great location, super clean: the Paradise
A wonderful time in June 2017!
Thank you for making your beautiful villa available to us. This was just what we needed after the usual horrible UK Winter weather. The first thing we saw upon opening the door was the lanai area with the pool and the canal beyond. Then the kitchen.. so well equipped and bright. My wife and I are cooking fans and we were thrilled. Travelling with two teenagers, we particularly appreciated having 3 bathrooms and a pool bath ….
Unfamiliar with the TV system here, we called your managers Homesearch Realty and they came to solve our problem within 2 hours.
The home is so spacious and bright and thank you for choosing light colored furniture which is the best for Florida. The pool area became one of our favourites, we enjoyed many BBQ’s at sundown most days. As avid golfers, I think we tried all 5 golf courses in the community, restaurants in the area and of course the beautiful beaches. We discovered Stump Pass National Park beach (we saw a dolphin and a lot of birds). Also went to Boca Grande, Sarasota a short drive away and Venice, one of my favourite spots !
I hope we can come back soon ….. Thank you again.

The best in Rotonda West! spacious, well decorated, great pool and spotless! I WANT TO COME BACK
This was really a great vacation … This was the first time we came to Florida (we are from Holland) and had our doubts about renting out a house from a website without seeing it. But your home is even better than in pictures. At first we had a great time exploring the home (so large), then we had a big dip in the pool … this was a real vacation. We found everything we needed, lots of linens, pots and pans, a great kitchen, the great room with the large TV was a plus .. and we appreciated having such a good internet connexion and telephone. We love to bike and made good use of the bicycles provided. We loved the pool area ….. really nothing negative about this home and we had a great time ….. I WANT TO COME BACK …
There is so much to do and see … beaches, great eating places, shopping ….. we appreciated the comprehensive booklet with all thet information that is at your disposal.
The only “scare” we had is that we lost our keys and could not get back in the house, but called the property manager and they solved the problem in less than an hour.
We can only recommend this beautiful home !

I spent two weeks at the Villa Maria in April/May 2017 and I have to say that overall I was dissapointed with the standard of the villa and the Homeserch property company.
I have rented three different propertys in Rotonda West in the last three years and Villa Maria was by far the worst. I felt that the kitchen was in need of upgrading. Although the equipment provided was of a generally good standard there were items that could have been better. The sink for example was not in a good condition. Outside the lanai furniture was not of a good standard. There was a broken sun lounger for example. Although the property has a southern aspect but due to trees on the adjoining land there was no sun on the pool area after about 4pm. Also in the walk in shower in the master bathroom there was a rusty pole in the corner. Not what I would have expected. I feel that the property is in need of a serious upgrade to justify the price of the rental being asked. I was also not impressed the management company. I had asked and payed for the pool to be heated but when I arrived the there was no heated pool. I was told that it was due to a problem with a switch. In my opinion this should have been rectified before I arrived. They also forgot to refund my damage deposit. I had to contact them and ask why the damage deposit was not refunded and was told they had forgotten to do it. Not impressed .
There were many good things about the property but I really feel that for the amount of the rental charged certain things could have been better. And because of that I would not recommend this property until improvements have been made.
Hello Kevin, We are happy you enjoyed your vacation nonetheless. Our home is very much appreciated by our guests, many are returning ..... and prices are those of the market for low season. We appreciate your taking the time to send your comments, even if they come over 2 months after your departure. Our home is true to the photographs you have seen on this web and is very well maintained and constantly upgraded ...I am honestly surprised at your comments since you were apparently happy with our management company Homesearch Realties which attended you various times during your stay.
Just a few comments on some of your remarks. You arrived April 20 and the pool was switched on that same day just after the previous guest left at 10 am. At your request settings were changed the next day so that it would come on at 8 am instead of 10 am (no extra charge) .You also called urgently because you could not change the BBQ propane bottle yourself. You were attended immediately (although an extra bottle was available in the garage). I believe one of the toilets was also jammed during your stay (too much paper ???), you called and the problem was solved right away. Regarding your comments about the trees, they are on the neighboring lot and meet the community's regulations ..... they are trimmed regularly but this is a residential area and trees cannot be removed..
Finally Kevin, your security deposit was refunded on your credit card within 2 weeks of your leaving. When you claimed that it had not been received, this was checked with the credit card company, they confirmed that it had not gone through, and payment was reprocessed (this took a few weeks ... unfortunately this sometimes happen and are circumstances beyond our control.

"So glad I'm not up north"
The only thing the kitchen was missing was the chef😉! Beautiful home.. Plenty of room, the lanai was lovely... This home was perfect for entertaining.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us !!! We are so happy with this area and will be back soon. You truly have thought of every detail to make our stay wonderful.

great floor plan with an abundance of space.
5 women stayed in this home for 8 nights. We had the unlimited golf pkg. for $100 ea. Enjoyed the golf courses. The kitchen was very well stocked with staples. Didn't get a chance to enjoy the bicycles. We paid the extra $ to heat the pool. Had to have a service call on the pool heater, but it was good after that. The sofa sleeper in living room was very uncomfortable to sit on. It needs to be replaced. Enjoyed our stay in the more than adequate home.
located on prestigious Rotonda West Community Golf
