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.
Me and my family loved this property. Our stay was perfect. So many accommodations. And so close to many of the beaches and farmers markets. 5 star all the way...
This is the perfect rental. Fully outfitted kitchen with everything u need. Very comfy beds, beautiful heated pool overlooking a beautiful canal, generous walk in closet, big walk in shower, and it's spotless. Garage contains bikes, golf clubs, tennis racquets, and everything u would need for a trip to the beach. Denise has thought of everything (including a good selection of books, DVD's, and games) and her communication from start to finish is flawless.
This is our second stay here and I hope to be back again. The area is upscale and beautiful with 5 golf courses within a few miles and a 7 mile paved bike trail called Cape Haze Pioneer Trail less than a mile away. Tennis courts at the community park just a short drive or bike ride away. Baseball at Charlotte Sports Park within a 20 minute drive. I just can't say enough nice things about this rental. Thank u Denise for another relaxing, wonderful stay.
Tip: For great, casual waterfront dining--head to nearby Placida Road and the Lighthouse Grill. Great place to enjoy a casual meal and beautiful sunsets from the marina dock.
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 !
