“Great vacation home”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just returned from Villa Zelia, what a great clean home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rotonda. Nice home with everything you need for a vacation. Quiet neighborhood, trails for walking or biking close by. Lots of golf in the immediate area. Great variety of beaches within short drives. Would highly recommend this home for your vacation.

“Disappointment!!”

person found this review helpful

The actual physical location of this house is not where it is shown on the map of the listing with Flipkey. It is on the opposite side of the Rotonda. We rented this house because of the location shown, closer to the beach. Not the case. We also had our scheduled check in time of 4 pm and upon our arrival, at 4 pm we opened the door to a dirty house. Dirty laundry piled everywhere, dirty floors and bathrooms. We were unable to get in until around 6:30. The house itself is ok, furnishings are nothing special, master bedroom bed will give you a back ache and don't try to sleep with the doors open as the pool is very loud. Overall, a disappointment.

The physical location of the villa is as shown on the website.Flipkey clearly shows on their map the location of the villa.
In the instance of this particular check-in our cleaning contractor failed to ensure the villa was ready for our new guests for 4pm.We acknowledge this error and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this caused.We have addressed this issue to ensure this will not be repeated.
As owners of this villa, we ourselves, are very disappointed you felt that your stay was a 2 star rating, this is in contrast to all previous reviews on trip advisor that have rated our villa as 5 star in all categories.

“Ms”
Reviewed 22 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Great rental, exactly as described. Denise was very easy to work with, the rental process was straightforward and we were grateful to find someone who was willing to rent for less than a week. We only had a few days in Rotonda and the villa suited us perfectly and is infinitely better value than a hotel.
Use of the spacious and clean villa, along with the pool, really provided us with a relaxing few days. Everything is provided which is so thoughtful. The area is quiet and peaceful with the canal at the back of the property.
We were a little taken aback/amused by the notices warning of gator activity but it was actually useful to have some warning and we only saw one on the opposite bank.
We visited the Ringling Estate from the villa and it was one of the highlights.
Highly recommended rental! Thank you Denise
