We loved this home and all it had to offer. It was very comfortable with a Large lanai and a beautiful saltwater pool. A very quiet neighborhood, only 25 min. to the beach. Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda are only 30 min. away with all the great restaurants and shopping, you could ask for. They allow pets but we left ours home. The home was immaculate. If they had pets staying there before you would have never known. That's a big plus in my book. You don't have to purchase anything for the kitchen, it's all there but the food. The grocery store is only 5 min. away. They also provide all the beach equipment you'll need and there are a couple of really nice bikes and golf clubs for you to use. The owners couldn't have been nicer, we will be back for sure.
Great stay at Villa Zelia, which was really well equipped and had everything we needed. The layout, kitchen, pool area were all great. Having the bikes to ride the trails and even the fossil/shell shaker for finding shark's teeth was great. Good communication from the owner Denise too.
There aren't masses of non chain restaurants in the area but still some good ones. The beaches at Boca Grande were crystal clear. We also went up to Sarasota and down to Everglades City where we saw dolphins and Alligators.
I feel very fortunate to have found this rental home. Our stay here was exactly what we were looking for. We have rented several homes in the Rotonda and this one we recommend highly. The location provided us easy access to Englewood, Boca Grande and Port Charlotte. We were provided with every single amenity possibly needed to spend the day out by the fabulously heated pool or a trip to the beach, including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, transport wagon and shelling scooper!
Upon arriving the trash containers in the garage hadn't been emptied so the smell was awful , but contacting the management company resolved this issue within a day. Overall, our stay was wonderful! Thank you Denise !
This is absolutely a beautiful home with a great floor plan. The home is equipped with everything a family on vacation would need. Very nicely furnished with comfy furniture and beds. Great location with just short drives to about anything you want and a quiet neighborhood with a secure safe feeling about it. The owner, Denise, was easy to contact and a gracious host. I hope we can stay here again and for a longer time. Thank you Denise.
The house from the moment we walked in felt inviting and at home away from home. The pool is perfect and the surrounding area is perfect. The house was very easy to find and located perfect for our busy weekend with my son's wedding on boca grande. Denise is the best to talk to and ask whatever questions you need to about the house and seems like a very nice person. My family drove from northern Indiana I flew in from Kentucky and it was a mini reunion with us and my two sons with their future wives and we couldn't have picked a better place to have our reunion. The house is perfect! !
I hate that now the house will be booked up solid for years to come. .lol! But I highly recommend a stay!!
My family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Zelia. It was such a beautiful home set on a beautiful canal front lot. The home was very clean and was stocked with absolutely everything you could need. The pool was lovely and the pool deck area spacious enough for everyone to enjoy the outdoors and the beautiful view.
I took advantage of the bicycles the host made available and was able to easily access the Cape Haze Pioneer Trail just a mile or so up the street from the home. We also used the pool rafts, the gas grill, the tennis racquets, and the beach chairs. She also had golf clubs, fishing poles, beach cart, coolers, etc. Wonderful golfing community neighborhood surrounded by other gorgeous homes and friendly people. The master bath and bedroom were enormous with a generous sized walk-in shower and walk-in closet. There was space for everything you needed to store. I can't speak more highly of this property and I would most definitely return!
