The Nicest Home we've rented for winter vacation

THANK YOU Derek and Wendy. Your home is beautifully decorated and furnished. It lacks nothing in the line of pots, pans and utensils. More than adequate bch towels and linens. We were happy to see a bobcat on 3 occasions and alligators in the lake. It was so relaxing to sit on the lani to listen and watch the many birds who frequent the area. The pool was nicely heated and we made good use of it. Before we left we were sure to have our vacation home booked for 2014. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.

Owner's reply:

You are very welcome, thank you for your kind remarks. We are delighted that you had a great vacation and found everything you wanted in the villa. Pleased you saw the Bobcat.

Thank you for being such nice guests and for looking after our home in Paradise.

We are really pleased you have booked for 2014

Christmas break in Rotonda

We were very satisfied with the accommodations during our 10 day stay in Rotonda. The house was very clean and well maintained. The layout of the house was great with kitchen and family room centrally located and two main bedrooms on the opposite ends of the house. The location of the house was private, the pool very nice and the lanai very specious and well equipped. The owners are very nice, easy to deal with and helpful. For us the best beach was on Gasparilla Island, the $6 bridge fee is well worth the visit. Boca Grande is charming and great place to visit on the way to the beach.

Our 1st trip to Rotonda

we were 100% thrilled with our accomodations. The house was beautiful and had all of the amenities that we could hope for. The property was very clean & well maintained. We dealt directly with the owners & could not have asked for nicer, more accomodating people. Though we never met, we felt very comfortable dealing with them and we hope to rebook again!!!!

Rotunda stay

Home was spotless and had all the amentities. Master bath/bedroom was huge. Layout of house was perfect with kitchen and family room centrally located. We had four occupants and this home versus renting two hotel rooms was not only much cheaper but probably had 4 times the space and more privacy. Great places to eat within 10 minutes or 20 minutes if going to Gaspirilla island. Will be there again next year if it is available.

Great Rental

The house and the pool were great. We went to Busch Gardens,Punta Gorda and the local beaches and had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend this rental.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Guestbook

I cannot compliment enough the service provided by Derek and this superb villa. We have stayed in many different villas in Florida, both out on the superb gulf coast and in the Orlando area. This villa really does not want for anything. It's is furnished very well and has everything you could wish for for either an extended or short stay. The location is peaceful but also near enough to shops and numerous places to eat.

The communication with Derek at all stages of the booking process was first class, giving me great confidence my booking was in very safe hands at all times.

The experience of sitting on the beautiful stump pass beach and watching the sunset is not to be missed. We will definitely be returning again.

Amazing Rental In Rotunda The Perfect Place To Be

If you are looking for an extremely quiet and private location this four bedroom villa more than fills the bill. Located at the end of a street traffic is minimal. No neighbours on either side add to the feeling of exclusivity.

All amenities are close by with a ten minute drive to Englewood,Placida or fifteen minutes to Port Charlotte. Golfing ,fishing and shopping are virtually on your doorstep.Walking trails and bike routes are a one minute walk.

The house itself is great with all amenities and the management company is the best I have encountered in my previous stays in Rotunda.The owner is excellent to deal with.

Bob, Ontario Canada, March 2013

Relax in the Real Florida

Villa ideal for a family group with 2 master ensuites. Located in quiet location within overall Rotonda development. Very close to Golf Club house and 3 challenging 9 hole courses. Excellent access for local beaches, supermarkets and the Mall at Port Charlotte. Overall a great villa and Derek was on hand to answer any queries before and during our stay. Thanks again for letting us rent your villa. Would definitely recommend.

Andrew Scotland July 2013

âSpacious villa and great locationâ

This villa was ideal for extended family occupation with the 2 ensuites and 2 other bedrooms with 4 single beds and another bathroom, the pool was great and the villa was well presented with all that is needed to make your stay comfortable also plenty of beach sized towels available for use.
The villa was also very clean all around.
Also located in a very quite location by itself with no close neighbours

Highly recommended

Terry High Wycombe, United Kingdom September 2013

A beautifully kept villa in a very peaceful & private location

I cannot fault the service provided by Derek Birchenough prior to & during out stay at the villa Tranquility. The location is perfect for a very peaceful & relaxing holiday.

The villa is very spacious & very well kept, perfect for two families or extended family. The pool & deck area are lovely and really private with plenty of space for children to play with an area to relax & eat under the lanai. There wasn't anything that we thought I wish they had ... - it was all there.

There are plenty of beaches to choose from & many restaurant options although we chose to eat (barbeque) at the villa most days as we were all so comfortable there. We travelled up to Orlando to do 'Disney' for 3 nights midway into our holiday which was amazing but was also nice to know we had the villa to come back to for a few relaxing days before returning home.

Look forward to returning one day.

Wonderful Homely Stay

What a great find! We booked based on all the great reviews and weren't disappointed. The pictures are very accurate and the unit was so clean and perfect. The house is very nice. Bed was very comfortable. Everything is top quality. No sparing of expense here.

Michael from Denmark July 2012

Heaven
Your home is absolutely beautiful. We arrived late afternoon totally tired but when we stepped into your front hall we were totally blown away by how beautiful it is. Your pictures do not serve it justice. Everything was spotless and the notes helped us navigate as to were everything is.

Thank you Derek and Wendy for allowing us to use your beautiful home. We had everything we needed and more. The villa was so peaceful and quiet. We visited the local beaches and did some shopping in Englewood and Port Charlotte. . The binder you left with things to do was greatly appreciated. When we come back in april there are several local eatery
places we are going to try. The boys enjoyed golfing at the local courses and the golfing was excellent. Next year we will be flying into Fort Myers which is closer to your villa. Thanks again for everything. It was a pure joy booking with you and you making things so easy and comfortable for us.

Doug and Norma from Canada April 2012


We spent two wonderful weeks in Florida! After several months working very hard we wanted to have a special christmas vacation. It was the kind long helpful and personal messages from our landlord Derek, that made us choose
this villa, and the house was just perfect. Very clean and well equipped, lots of space and wonderful pool and lanai. We got very much good information about the villa and the surroundings before we arrived there and also from the house manuals. The location was ideal for us: many golf
courses near and a quiet and safe area for a family with kids .
All in all it was so far the best vacation that our family have had. We liked best the villa, the weather (sunshine!), the pool, playing golf, shopping, spending relaxed time together and getting together new experiences for every sense. The people are very friendly in Florida and almost everything is cheaper there than here in Finland. The worst thing is
that it is located so far away from us...

Taina from Finland December 2011

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sun!

We took this villa for two weeks, the first with grandparents as well as our three teenage daughters, the second was just our family of five. There was plenty of space for everyone and the house was very comfortable. Lying around the pool was great, with plenty of local wildlife to watch - herons, egrets, pelicans and even a bob cat and her cub one day. The beaches locally were lovely too and we found other interesting stuff further afield, including a long day up in Universal which the teens in particular enjoyed. Local restaurants were friendly and good quality. Bikes provided by the house were great for everyone to do a bit of independent exploring and exercise. The pool was great. Would love to go again one day!

Lois from Scotland October 2011

peace and quiet and truly unique surroundings

Reviewed on 05/20/2011 for a stay on 05/01/2011

We truly enjoyed our stay at Tranquility.Something for everyone, a very quiet, friendly neighbourhood with everything close by.My wife and I had great days at some terrific beaches (usually within a 10-15 minute drive) from the villa, and really enjoyed our bike rides every morning and walks around the picturesque golf courses beside us.Getting up every morning to enjoy a coffee outside and listen to the many birds singing was very relaxing.The canal behind the property is beautifull and abounds with many waterfowl especially very early morning.One of the biggest surprises was when one evening the bobcat bounded through the back yard ,over the canal bridge and into the trees! All in all it was just a great, very relaxing vacation.The villa is very clean and well maintained in a quiet,safe neighbourhood. It was a pleasure dealing with Derek Birchenough who had everything very well organized,(instructions in the house were great also) and we encountered no unwanted surprises, before,during or after our stay.We would highly recommend this villa and the owners to anyone wanting a memorable vacation!

Home away From Home

It was such an easy process of renting the Villa, I felt like I knew Derek just through the emails that we sent. The Villa was a home away from home! Everything you could think of was there! Rotonda is a very nice area, quiet setting while neighbors are near! We enjoyed our stay, would love to stay again sometime!! More...

Perfect holiday
Wonderful villa with a perfect location.
Very welcoming and felt at home immediately.
Lots of varied wildlife to be seen even a close encounter with a turtle.
Even after 3 weeks we could have stayed longer and having been home only 2 days we are missing it already.
Cannot wait until next time!!!

By Mike G from Lancashire UK on 4/8/2011 for a stay in 3/1/2011

Large, beautiful villa with great sunset view from the lanai
Great accommodation for a large family or even 2 families, since it has 2 master bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms - the one in the #1 masterm bedroom is something to behold -
plus another full bathroom for the other 2 bedrooms. The south-west exposure for the lanai/pool area gives you sun from 9 in the morning until sunset - a spectacular view. The privacy of the villa since it is located by itself at the end of the street allows you to enjoy a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. Added bonuses are the 4 or 5 bikes that the owner has provided - one with a baby seat attached - and all kinds of floats and toys for the children to use at the pool or the beach. As you are relaxing pool side in the lanai, you may see all kinds of wildlife especially many species of birds etc. More...
· By ward from corunna, ontario, canada on 3/6/2011 for a stay in 2/1/2011


Tranquility is such an appropriate name
The villa was a tranquil delight. If you are a bird lover as I am it was a real treat. In the morning you share your coffee with the symphony of birdsongs. From simple mockingbirds to herons and whole flocks of ibis and the egrets are a photographers dream.
We wanted for nothing since the villa is so well appointed. Thank you for allowing us to share the tranquility and our grandkids enjoyed the fishing and views of alligators. The trips to Boca Grande and looking for sharks teeth at Englewood and Caspersian beach were wonderful too. Thank you again.

We recently spent 2 weeks at this villa, and could not have
asked for more. Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy
The villa itself is idealy located, a fantastic place to relax and watch
the various wildlife across the canal and lake. - We were lucky enough to
spot a couple of small gators, numerous fishing birds and the highlight was
without doubt a bobcat.

Would completely recommend this villa, and the professionalism of Derek
and Wendy made the booking and planning of our holiday a pleasure.

Anthony & Kimberley from Warrington, UK



Very nice home, very clean and nicely decorated.
Located at a "junction" of a canal, with water behind
and to the side. Spacious grounds. Very pleasant
pool area.
Area full of natural wildlife.
Adjacent to 27 hole golf course.
About 20 min drive to many restaurants (usual chains)
and about 15 minutes to beaches and the beautiful
Gasparilla island.
Would recommend staying here and owner is very good
and cares that his guests have a good stay.

Paul Holmes from Ossett, West Yorkshire, UK

Hi Derek and Wendy

We had a most relaxing holiday in your beautiful villa - the best one we have ever been to. It's in a most peaceful setting. The aspect is just wonderful and it has a tranquil atmosphere about it. I think it has everything to make a perfect holiday. It was great.

Pete and Jenny

Dear Derek and Wendy,

Thanks; will look out for the cheque.

Yes, we had a wonderful time thank you. The house was very nice - well equipped and so well situated. It is far and away the nicest place we have stayed in. Everybody loved it to bits.

There were absolutely no problems with the house or any other aspect of the holiday. We have never stayed in the area before but now look forward to returning in the future. Now the children are older, Orlando seems a bit 'seen it - done it'. We cannot think of one place we visited that we did not love.

We left a few inflatables and a couple of surf boards in the garage to stock up the toy selection. We had great use out of them and somebody else should too.

We saw so much wildlife, it would be a very long mail if I described it all. One thing to mention though, there seems to be an Armadillo trying to burrow under the lanai where it meets the house wall on the lake side. He didn't cause us any problems but you may want someone to look at it for you.

Well, we wish we could return next Easter, but college exams look like they will prevent us from travelling at that time.

Thanks again and bye for now,

Nick and Jen.
