"Immaculate beautiful villa in great location"
My husband, 18 month old son and I have had a wonderful 5 days at Villa Zelia. The villa itself is stunning and is packed with every possible amenity you could wish for. It is spotlessly clean, inside and out, and felt like a real home-from-home the minute we stepped through the door.
The location is great too- although a car is essential if you're looking for beach days, or even to get to the main supermarkets etc. This wasn't a problem for us, and we certainly travelled quite a bit around the area during out stay. Most notably, Bocca Grande (stunning beach with turquoise waters), Siesta Key, the Ringling Estate and St. Pete's are well worth a visit.
Communication from the owner before and throughout our stay was fantastic. We particularly appreciated the helpful guide of places to go and things to do in the area.
We will no doubt be returning to Florida again in the future and wouldn't hesitate rebooking Villa Zelia.
It's always great to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay at Villa Zelia but particularly pleased to hear this felt like a 'home from home' as we do like to think in terms of 'Mi casa su casa'and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Many thanks for taking the time to write this review

"Fabulous property with everything you need in an excellent relaxing holiday villa"
Myself and my partner stayed for two weeks in this excellent spacious Holliday villa.The villa has a wow factor when walking through the front door for the first time and it was in a perfect position to drive out and find the many adventures from visiting Mote Aquarium to exploring the Everglades on an airboat all within an hour or twos drive. It was clean and extremely well equipped even down to pool and beach equipment in the garage.The washing machine and dryer were a Godsend. It was lovely having our own pool and wonderful to sit and watch the odd alligator on the neighbours lawn sunbathing. There are beautiful clean beaches a short drive away for shell hunting, swimming and dolphin watching and areas cordoned off for the turtle nests. There are also plenty of fantastic restaurants and shops within a short driving distance.
We really loved staying here and would definitely recommend it to everyone one from a couple to a family. Next time we visit, we would definitely consider rebooking this beautiful villa.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Zelia. We look to maintain high standards and provide amenities to enhance the stay for all our guests. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon and appreciate you taking the time to write this review
