Guestbook comments from the owner

Executive Style Villa with Stunning Views Minslake is quite simply a home away from home. Furnished to a very high standard with everything you could wish for a relaxing break. The villa is beautifully kept among manicured grounds in a quiet location away from it all. The pool overlooks the lake and is very private, hours are passed relaxing while watching the wildlife. The computer/Printer is an added bonus and ideal for finding places to visit, cinema times, opening times, restaurants, events and for online check in at the airport etc. There are plenty of books, games and magazines. Beach equipment is provided with a coolbox for picnics. A couple of bikes are provided which are great, although at some of the parks you can rent them too. The villa is close to shops restaurants and supermarkets. Port Charlotte is only 20 minutes away with a Mall, Cinema and lots of restaurants. The beautiful beaches are close too. The Villa was a wonderful base to explore the Gulf Coast and beyond, we travelled to Orlando, Miami, The keys and Everglades from here easily. Tampa airport is a straight 90 minutes away. Outlet Malls are an hours ride away too for those bargain shopping trips and a little quieter and more relaxed than Orlando. We love this Villa so much we won't stay anywhere else! The management team are fantastic and on hand should you have any problems (although you probably won't need them!) The inside is kept immaculate and never fails to impress us when we arrive, its a much welcomed site after a long journey. If we have to pick one fault it would be no BBQ, although there are so many restaurants to try and you may not have the time to use it!

Great Villa..Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

"We had a wonderful three weeks staying in Minslake. We have found in the past that photographs and descriptions can be misleading but in your case the pictures and description do not do justice to the true experience of staying in Minslake. A wonderfully comfortable master bed, usually one of my criticisms as I am a very light sleeper, a well equipped kitchen, nothing has been forgotten, and a very comfortable pair of lounge areas. Minslake is so clean and well looked after, you and the management company must be constantly updating it to ensure the comfort of your guests.

We were looking for a relaxing holiday, a home from home, and Minslake gave us exactly that. We slept well, there were no disturbances, Rotonda is a wonderfully peaceful area and Minslake has a gorgeous view over the lake from the lanai with no neighbours overlooking the rear of the property. The lake also had regular visits from Moses, the resident alligator.

We can honestly say that this has been the best villa that we have stayed in since we first visited Florida in the early 90s, and we have paid a lot more for some of the previous villas.

When we next come to the area we will definitely put Minslake as our first choice."

Beautiful Villa with wonderful views and wild life

  • 5 of 5

A return visit to this lovely villa, and I have booked for 2016 and 2017 ( you have to book early to get your fortnight as it is so popular). Very comprehensively equipped with tasteful furnishings and well laid out rooms, this has become a home from home over the last two years and this visit was no different. I and my companions enjoyed a delightful and restful break in beautiful surroundings in a very peaceful and well maintained area of Rotonda. The whole housing complex is immaculate, as is the villa. The outlook to the Northeast means you have sun until 1500 and lovely views out over the lake which teems with wild life.

The owner provides great customer service and her agent in Rotonda deals quickly with any problems that may arise. The area has restaurants and beaches nearby, but the distances involved mean you will need a car during your stay.

Overall, you will not find a better villa in Rotonda - highly recommended !

A Delightful Quiet and Peaceful Property

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautifully presented home in a very quiet residential area. The house is equipped with everything one might need for a vacation. The decor of the house is to a high standard and it is clean and well maintained. We selected this property based on the owner’s brochure which stated the pool faced south west; in fact the pool faces north east so during our stay in January the pool area received little to no sun. (During the summer months, we imagine this might be a benefit). It was too cool for us to sit round the pool in the shade and therefore our use of the pool, despite having paid for it to be heated, was very limited. The owner has since modified her brochure, although chose not to acknowledge our email pointing out her error.

Rotonda, South West Florida is located near beautiful Cape Haze, Boca Grande & Englewood on the Gulf of Mexico. This relaxing area is the perfect spot for enjoying a laid back, quiet vacation. There are outdoor activities for every adventurer. You can jet ski, parasail, fish or charter a boat from one of the area’s marinas. There are numerous golf courses and nearby there are many beautiful beaches all within 10-15 minutes.

Pine Valley has the newest golf course on Rotonda, opened in January 2008. This is rumoured to be one of the best golf courses in the Charlotte County area and Minslake is ideally located to this as you can view it from across the lake at the same time as wild life of otter, osprey and many others are often seen on Rotonda whilst in the inter-coastal you will nearly always see dolphin and even occasionally a manatee. For the nearby beaches on Boca Grande and Minnesota Cay, as well as the beaches on Palm Island and Don Pedro Island .
