We stayed along with one other family and we had plenty of space. We enjoyed the open floor plan and the kitchen had everything we needed to do a fair amount of cooking. The outdoor pool was great especially because we couldn't fully enjoy the beaches with the red tide. The only critical remark would be the pool was too warm and I believe the heating should be left off during the summer months. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would rent this property again.
This is a well equipped villa.
It's a little dated but fairly clean and tidy.
We had booked it for 4 weeks and moved out after 5 days as it was infested with cockroaches.
We are experienced Florida travellers and have rented villas in Florida for the last 20 years.
We have never experienced anything like this in any other villa before.
The owners management company did have the villa treated by pest control but the cockroaches persisted after this.
The owner was extremely unhelpful saying you expect a few cockroaches it's Florida (well not to this degree in my experience) and at first refused to give us a refund saying he needed to re rent the villa first!
Disgraceful really given the reason we were moving out.
Eventually a refund was given But no correspondence or apology !
I'm sure the owners response to this will be interesting.
However, please think again if you are thinking of renting this villa.
We spent a week as a family of four at this villa in August.
The description is very accurate and it was a great base for our holiday. The home is very well looked after and I can think of nothing to fault it.
I was slightly alarmed to discover a new house being built directly opposite the villa on arrival and feared it would be very noisy. I should not have worried, there was little noise and did not disturb us at all.
Unlike the villas we have hired in Orlando, this villa did not have a games room in the garage (we knew this and I do not think it is common in Rotonda). The big bonus to this is that we were able to use the garage for our hire car. This was novel for us and we all very much appreciated getting into a cool car rather than one that normally feels like an oven!
The owner communicated with us well and responded to any queries quickly. The only small thing that I could mention is that the pool light was not working when we arrived at the villa. We reported this to the management company. They were friendly and sent someone round to look at it as soon as possible, eventually having to replace the light. This is not a criticism but to me shows that queries are dealt with well.
The pool area was lovely, as was the pool. The house itself has everything you could need, including things for the beach.
I have no complaints at all - if you are after a holiday in a beautiful location near stunning beaches, in a luxury, well maintained home, consider this one.
Having spent the last 20 years vacationing in Florida we have stayed at many villas. None compare to this one. From the moment we drove up the road guided by the lights left on for us by the marvellous management company we knew we had chosen well. The location of the villa is marvellous. In a particularly nice area of Rotonda where neighbours are warm and friendly and with maximum privacy. The pool was like a bath with the solar heat - a real bonus for April. And the pool area well proportioned and equipped for relaxing. Inside the house was beautifully laid out and luxurious in terms of space and furnishings - exactly like the pictures we loved the fact that the lanai didn't cover the family room window - perfect for wildlife,evening sun and palm tree observation. Bedrooms were fab and I honestly can't think of anything that we would have needed in this house that wasn't there down to enough equipment to fill the car trunk and enjoy many a day at the wealth of nearby beaches and a garage full of pool toys for the kids. After we arrived the management company were on hand to check we were happy, we purchased a blender as the one in the house had a crack in and they rushed round to re-imburse us for our costs! The cupboards were stocked with books and games in case of any rainy days (we saw none) and the quality of appliances and equipment in the house top notch. We loved the place so much we contacted Nigel the owner to re book for next year - it was already taken which says it all. Worth noting, as another sign of the superb end to end fantastic attitude and approach of the owners who do everything they can to ensure a great experience - he has now put us in touch with a friend who owns there and we have secured an alternative villa. I can't recommend this place enough - worth ever single penny and I still feel relaxed 3 weeks back in work!!!!
