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.

Peaceful location with all the amenities you need

  • 5 of 5

We (2 daughters and my wife and I) rented Villa Tortoise in Rotonda West for 2 weeks in March and it was wonderful!

Mike & Petra were very accommodating with a late arrival and provided great insight into local attractions and restaurants. The neighborhood is very quiet and great for bike rides, jogging, walking, etc. with plenty of wildlife around. We alternated our days between the beach (a good selection within 20-25 minutes) and the pool and frequently cooked out for dinner and watched movies at night.

Very relaxing, with all the amenities you need to unwind!!

Total Serenity!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect stay! This vacation home was immaculate, nicely furnished, extremely well-stocked. The location was exactly what we were seeking-extreme privacy which allowed us to completely "step off the grid" and totally relax.

My interaction with the owners, Petra and Michael, were pleasant, accommodating, and efficient.

I highly recommend this rental home and, personally, intend to return!

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I stayed here and if not for purchasing a home locally I would stay every time. Petra and Michael take pride in providing all the amenities that you didn't even realize you needed or wanted in a vacation home. Don't hesitate to stay in this lovely home.

Luxury villa in tranquil Rotonda West

  • 5 of 5

We spent last week at Villa Tortoise in Rotonda West and loved it. The

house is new, spacious and elegantly furnished, with a pool and a deck

facing the canal, as you can see in the photos (it’s even nicer in person).

The owners are gracious and responsive, and happen to reside in the

neighborhood.

Rotonda West is an ideal location for nature lovers, beachcombers, and

folks who just want to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The

neighboring area is quiet and tranquil, with a nearby nature trail, golf

course, state parks. Very close to pristine beaches (Boca Grande, Lemon

Bay/Manasota Key) and commercial areas (Venice, Port Charlotte, Punta

Gorda). Perfect for day trips to Sarasota, Sanibel Island/Captiva, Fort

Myers. You can even make it as far as Tampa up north or Key West down

south in a day trip.

If you want a vacation in a laid-back locale with warm weather and

beautiful beaches, and if you’re looking for a great accommodation with

plenty of privacy, this is the place you want to stay. Thank you for your gracious hospitality, Petra + Michael!
