Definitely 5 star *****

  • 5 of 5

This villa has everything you could want or need! It's a beautifully built home with high end finishes and details and it is also very comfortable with all the amenities for your vacation. It is very close to Boca Grande and it is also convenient to Englewood, Venice and Nokomis. The view from the lanai is very special as there is an abundance of beautiful birds and wild life in this area. The owners are very kind and welcoming. You will be very happy if you spend your vacation at this villa.

Great Florida Pool Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well maintained home. Nicely furnished with high end finishes throughout and a wonderful large pool and lanai. Owners were very pleasant and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to rent again if/when we go back.

Lovely property - spacious, well equipped, clean - a real home from home - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Tortoise! The villa is very well situated on a lovely canal in the Pine Valley area of Rotonda West. The view from the lanai overlooking the canal gave us many hours of pleasure. Watching the large variety of water birds coming to catch their breakfast whilst we were eating ours outside on the lanai was a real treat each morning. The villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay whilst you enjoy everything this stunning area has to offer. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen with a large countertop breakfast bar, two separate, comfortable seating areas and outside a spacious pool area and lanai with table and chairs and loungers. The villa is very well maintained with everything you need for a great holiday, but having the friendly owners, Michael and Petra, living just around the corner was a definite advantage - we had the reassurance of knowing that any problems we might have had could be dealt with straight away and in person. We loved it - if you haven't been before and you choose Villa Tortoise you are in for a treat, both with villa and the area.
