Excellent home, fully equipped, comfortable beds, nice pool. Appreciated being able to bring our little brittany with us. Quiet neighborhood, close to bike trails, nice view of canal in backyard.
This villa is gorgeous!! We stayed here as a family of 5 over Christmas. The villa is finished to a very high standard and is one of the loveliest villas we have ever stayed in. Denise is a very considerate host and had even put out Christmas decorations for us. There is an excellent BBQ which we made great use of. The bikes in garage were an added bonus. Pool area is lovely and lots of pool toys in garage - pool was a little cold - but it was December! Would definitely recommend this lovely villa.
Zelia was an excellent Villa in an ideal setting overlooking a canal full of wildlife. We were able to use most of the extras in the garage. We used the golf clubs to play three times at the local Cove Par3 course,the sun loungers at Englewood and Siesta Key Beaches and the bicycles to ride to Placida Pier and other locations. The heated swimming pool was a great way to cool down as necessary. The accommodation was very comfortable and very well resourced. The Wifi was high speed and the free telephone service to UK was greatly appreciated We would thoroughly recommend Zelia.

The house is exactly as described. In fact, its actually better! The area is quiet and perfect for relaxing (especially if you don't have kids! :) ) It is extremely clean and nicely decorated. Everything you could possibly need is there. Our host was very gracious and checked in periodically to make sure we didn't have any questions. We would definately recommend and will hopefully be back!
We just couldn't fault it - the house was wonderful. It had everything we needed and expected and more besides. Games, books, DVDs, local guide written by owner etc. House very clean but not so fancy that we were scared to stay there with our kids! Area also fabulous. The beaches at Boca Grande especially nice, and kayaking close to the bridge at Boca Grande was an amazing experience. I very rarely want to go back to the same place, simply because I always like to see new places, but I will make an exception in this case and say that we can't wait to return.
Layout of house was great for us with the master suite on one side of the living area and the two double bedrooms and bathroom on the other side.
Pool area was especially enjoyed by us all. Very clean and safe, with own toilet and shower, and BBQ & eating area.
The whole family loved the house - the only thing missing according to my husband was a cheese grater ;)
Not sure where to start...This place is absolutely beautiful. I loved how the rooms were laid out. Everything we needed was there. My kids loved the pool. There was plenty of water toys, sand toys, cooler, and beach towels which was a relief. The master bedroom has a wonderful bed it was hard for my husband and I to crawl out of it in the morning because its so comfortable. The house is well maintained. We had a minor problem when we first got there. I called the number that was given for any problems and it was took care of within an hour. The owner is amazing and patient. She answered many questions I had in a very quickly manner. We visited many beaches in the area and are favorite was caspersen beach which is about 40 minutes away. The water there was very clear and the beach had many big shells. It was a great place to snorkel. Boca Grande was another beach we fell in love with. It is only 20min away. We got to see live star fish, Manatees, Dolphins, and Sting rays. This beach is not as busy which made it great. We would defin. go back and stay. Thanks again for allowing us to making memories at your home.
