Beautiful Villa

This is a beautiful well kept villa, one of the nicest we've ever stayed in during our 25 years of visiting Florida. The nearby beaches are lovely and a nice change from the frantic pace of Orlando and the 'mouse'. If you like 'nature' you can't go wrong with this villa, being right on a nature reserve and close to several canals. The villa itself is large and comfortable and would easily accommodate two families with plenty of room for everyone. Derek, the owner is very easy to deal with and provides plenty of information about the area. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

The Nicest Home we have rented for Winter Vacation

THANK YOU Derek and Wendy. Your home is beautifully decorated and furnished. It lacks nothing in the line of pots, pans and utensils. More than adequate bch towels and linens. We were happy to see a bobcat on 3 occasions and alligators in the lake. It was so relaxing to sit on the lani to listen and watch the many birds who frequent the area. The pool was nicely heated and we made good use of it. Before we left we were sure to have our vacation home booked for 2014. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL..

Christmas Break Rotonda

We were very satisfied with the accommodations during our 10 day stay in Rotonda. The house was very clean and well maintained. The layout of the house was great with kitchen and family room centrally located and two main bedrooms on the opposite ends of the house. The location of the house was private, the pool very nice and the lanai very specious and well equipped. The owners are very nice, easy to deal with and helpful. For us the best beach was on Gasparilla Island, the $6 bridge fee is well worth the visit. Boca Grande is charming and great place to visit on the way to the beach.

Further details outdoors

The pool area is fully equipped with sunbeds, a large table and 8 chairs for alfresco dining, it looks out down the meandering canal and the nature reserve, it should be noted there are no further properties to the right of the villa, you do not feel as though you are diving into next doors swimming pool which adds to the privacy. Being close to the nature reserve ensures a variety of birds including, eagles, egrets and herons, regularly fly overhead. We have even had bobcats walking across our back garden, it was amazing I nearly dropped my coffee !!!!

We have a Gas BBQ and 4 bikes if you feel like some exercise.

The Southwest Gulf Coast region

Pine Valley is located within the Rotonda on the South West coast of Florida in Charlotte County, often referred to as Florida's hidden secret, or the real Florida. It is near the beachside town of Englewood on the Gulf of Mexico. The International Airports of Tampa (1.5 hours) and Fort Myers (1 hour) provide easy access to this area.

Englewood has over 27 miles of white sandy beaches, many of which are almost deserted during the week. With Manasota Key to the North and Boca Grande to the South, our villa is perfectly located 15 - 20 mins drive to these fabulous beaches where pelicans fly overhead and dolphins swim in the sea. Englewood is one of the last parts of the Florida coastline to be discovered and is being developed on strict guidelines. Nearby Port Charlotte caters for all those craving retail therapy with a large Mall, whilst the Outlet Malls of Sarasota are 50 mins drive away.

With Naples to the south and Sarasota to the North our villa is ideally placed to visit these lovely areas of the Gulf Coast

Rotonda West

Pine Valley is located within the Rotonda on the South West coast of Florida in Charlotte County,

Rotonda consists of many beautiful homes, which have been built on large lots amidst natural lakes, canals and golf courses. Many Americans and Canadians have made this area their home and you will be staying in a quiet and peaceful residential community. Which is also home to an array of Florida wildlife including pigs, raccoons, bobcats, turtles, alligators and a variety of birds. A nature reserve and conservation area has been maintained in the centre of the Rotonda, where you can get close to 'Real Florida'.

With stunning beaches, fantastic wildlife, golf, and an array of attractions nearby, surrounded by numerous restaurants and excellent shopping opportunities, our villa is ideally situated to enjoy all this area has to offer. Everything you would need is closeby

"I want to go back.....NOW!!!!"

What a fantastic man Derek is - both Derek and his wife have gone above and beyond in helping us have a great holiday in their delightful villa.

This was our third consecutive stay in Rotonda and the first time in this villa. Everything is to hand - there were only 3 of us staying so it felt (and is) enormous, two families can easily stay in this villa without getting on each other's nerves! It is on a huge plot surrounded by a canal on both sides, very tranquil and an abundance of wildlife.

We had a blue heron called Ester that would appear outside the pool net every day along with two egrets that popped by too. Sitting on the lanai with a cold drink after packing away the entire contents of Publix (there are 3 Publix stores in this area) and listening to all the birds ... It's relaxing stuff!

If you can prise you way off the lanai there is a lot to do in the area and fabulous restaurants are close by - one of our favourites was an Italian restaurant called Nicola's. We went to a Charlotte Stone Crabs game which is ten minutes from the villa and was a great night out. The shopping mall in Port Charlotte has a Macy's as well as a lot of other big shops. The outlet shopping mall in Ellenton is great for some bargains. The Mote Aquarium in Sarasota, the most spectacular sunsets from Stump Pass Beach, lemon Bay Tours do nature cruises where we watched pods of dolphins - even two babies! We went out for the day, fishing with a skipper ... I have never been so hot...but it was an experience.

I cannot compliment enough the villa, the management company whilst out there were brilliant too, Derek's attention to detail is second to none he wants you to have a great holiday and we certainly did. I cried when we left, we shall definitely return, we have been bitten by the Rotonda bug and there is no getting over it! Now just to get my lottery numbers to come up and I'll be on Gasparilla Island in a glitter sprayed golf buggy!

"The perfect vacation home"

I cannot compliment enough the service provided by Derek and this superb villa. We have stayed in many different villas in Florida, both out on the superb gulf coast and in the Orlando area. This villa really does not want for anything. It's is furnished very well and has everything you could wish for for either an extended or short stay. The location is peaceful but also near enough to shops and numerous places to eat.

The communication with Derek at all stages of the booking process was first class, giving me great confidence my booking was in very safe hands at all times.

The experience of sitting on the beautiful stump pass beach and watching the sunset is not to be missed. We will definitely be returning again.

"Excellent / Highly Recommended Villa in Quiet Location"

The location of this villa was extremely peaceful and quiet. It was very tastefully decorated, very clean and well maintained. The owners Derek and Wendy were a pleasure to deal with, being extremely helpful with local information and maps. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone seeking a quiet location with great views along the two canals which wrap around the property, affording glimpses of the local wildlife. The villa itself is extremely well equipped including bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas. We have enquired about a second stay and this is an extremely sought after villa. If you are thinking of booking it - do not hesitate!

"Relax in the Real Florida"

Villa ideal for a family group with 2 master ensuites. Located in quiet location within overall Rotonda development. Very close to Golf Club house and 3 challenging 9 hole courses. Excellent access for local beaches, supermarkets and the Mall at Port Charlotte. Overall a great villa and Derek was on hand to answer any queries before and during our stay. Thanks again for letting us rent your villa. Would definitely recommend.
