Just thought I'd drop you a quick email to say thank you for our stay at your villa.
We have had a great time there. Your villa is absolutely lovely and the pool was something else..!!!.
It is by far the largest biggest one we have ever had in Florida.
We particularly enjoyed trying to spot the alligators on the canal, although from a distance.
We shall certainly try and stay again if we get chance to visit the Rotunda area again in the future and I will be recommending your place to everyone.
Thanks once again.
Knew upon arrival that this villa was going to be a true home from home. The living rooms are spacious and have the most comfy chairs and couches i've encountred whilst on holiday. Kitchen has everything that you need especially the very large wine glasses and the insulated coffee pot to help recover from too much wine the night before.
The master bedroom has a very large ensuite bathroom with whirlpool bath, walk in shower and twin sinks. Daughter loved the bath and found it very relaxing although i was a big fan of the walk in shower which had a strong flow and was refreshing after a swim in the pool. The other bathroom has access to the outside pool area which came in very handy given the amount of time we spent out there.
The pool is very large and allows for more than just paddling and playing games in. The more energetic amongst us did lengths every morning. whilst keeping an eye on the alligators, turtles and birds that can be seen in the canal behind the villa. One plus point is there is still space to have sun lounger by the pool without getting splashed and an area to sit whilst enjoying the bbq or alfresco dining under the lanai. Golf clubs, bikes, beach chairs and inflatables all got used and add to the benefits of this villa. Arelene was really helpful and the management company were responsive when we spoke to them about a small issue with a smoke alarm.
We didn't have the best weather, thanks to Hurrican Hermine deciding to make an appearance, but that didn't spoil our holiday as there is so much to do within the area and so many nice beaches, shoppping malls and other places to visit. Can recommend Primetime steakhouse, Zydeco Grille and Villa Capri resturants if you decide to eat out in the area.
We have stayed in a number of villas on Rotonda West over the past 8 years and luckily they all have been good however this villa just had that little bit of something extra and will be top of the list next time (and there will be a next time!) we are in the area.
Thanks Arlene for letting us stay in your wonderful property and already looking forward to the next time.
The house was wonderful. It was very spacious and accommodated my husband and I along with all of our children nicely. It was well equipped with kitchen essentials and bathroom/swimming towels. We based our rental selection on the size of the pool. Most pools in this area are very small - this one did not disappoint. It was a great size and so much fun. The owner, Arlene Kennan, is wonderful as well. We mistakenly selected the wrong dates for checking in and out and she very quickly changed them for us therefore securing our time at her lovely home. We will be returning next year!
What a lovely villa! We stayed for four weeks from April to May 2016.
The villa is exactly as described, clean spacious and well appointed.
The pool is forty feet by twenty and solar heated, I couldn't wait to try it on arrival.
The view from the lanai takes in the canal and herons, ibis, egrets, osprey, gators and turtles can all be seen close by.
For the golf lovers there are courses within a few hundred yards and sets of clubs in the garage. We enjoy tennis and used the bikes provided to get to the local courts a few minutes away. Its friendly place everyone speaks or waves when you are out locally. Arlene the owner made it all easy and stayed in touch with us to provide helpful advice. We have stayed in this area several times and this was one of the nicest places we have stayed in. The villa sleeps six in comfort with a sofa bed in the den that would sleep another two in comfort.
Local beaches are about twenty minutes away and there are loads of good restaurants; Landys, Howards, Sharkys are very good and various chains for faster food. We would stay here again. Daily temperatures reached 92F.
This is one of the best properties we have stayed in in this area, and we will be returning. A welcome drink package waited in the fridge and the forty foot pool was just waiting to be used. We stayed for four weeks. If you love wildlife, golf, tennis, Sun, good food and water sports or fishing it is the place to be. Rotonda is a friendly community, everyone speaks or waves a hand in greeting. Our booking procedure was simple, Arlene kept in touch by email to ensure a smooth trip. This property would easily accommodate eight in comfort ( we came as a couple). The quality of furnishings was very good and decor in good order. We enjoyed the local cruzin events (Dearborn street first Saturday of the month is the best) , visiting the local beaches and fishing piers ( Venice, Placida both are good) and relaxing in the 32C midday heat. The air con was great and probably the quietest we have known. It's an easy drive from Tampa or Orlando. Our deposit was returned in full promptly on our return.
Best restaurants locally are Landys on the water, Howard's, Sharkys on the pier (for fun) and do try Lickety Split at Englewood for a lunchtime quick bite.
Beautiful villa in a perfect location for watching wildlife and gorgeous sunrises. Owners are more than helpful.
Very clean and enjoyable vacation . I felt like I was at home , and would return. I would like an itemize statement of the charges , charged to my credit card Thanks. Susie
