Jessica Staples Campitelli

Wasaga Beach, ON, CANADA

Lovely home in a great location.

This home was very spacious, clean and well kept and the pool was wonderful to have and very safe for small children with the security fence. The area surrounding the home was very safe and surrounded by other high end homes. Would highly recommend to families or groups due to the many lounge areas, you will never feel crowded.

Victoria Brodie

Owner's reply:

Hi Jess & Family - thanks for your review. I'm so glad you had a wonderful stay in our Glorious Gulf Villa.
It's great to hear that our open-plan layout with various lounge areas gave you the space you needed and worked well for your family.
I know from the detailed comments you left in our Villa Visitor book that you were very lucky to see some amazing wildlife during your stay which is always a real treat.
Hope we can welcome you back one day! Kind Regards, Victoria

Home away from home

We were lucky enough to escape this ridiculously cold winter and spend three weeks in this villa. The area was perfect for what we needed! Rotonda is a very residential community, about 20 minutes from the beach. There is a prk in the neighborhood which our son loved. Groceries were about 5 minutes away which wa very convenient. The villa itself is lovely and lives up to the pictures. Comfortable enough for adults to enjoy, but not so "decorated" that I was worried about our kids breaking something! We paid to have the pool heated, although I think something changed as the second half of the vacation it felt significantly colder. They have installed a child safety fence around the pool which was also nice for us. Kitchen had adequate supplies to cook with (typical rental house quality, bring your own knives!). Overall we had a great stay and would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking to get away somewhere warm who doesn't require being right on the beach!

Owner's reply:

I am so glad our villa lived up to your high expectations and you all had a wonderful relaxing time.
I really hope we can welcome you all back one day in the future. Kind Regards, Victoria.
PS. I'm getting the kitchen knives renewed as we speak!!

Thank you for a wonderful stay and what a beautiful home you have! It really was a pleasure to stay there. It's so nice to go to a holiday home that has so much attention to detail and everything such good quality. We would love to return one day!

Paul & Kendra:-
What a beautiful, quiet & relaxing home you have...just what the Doctor ordered!
A great place to sit back by the pool and enjoy the wildlife and most of all sunshine. We enjoyed the places you recommended to shop and visit and of course golf. Your villa information binder and all the notes around the house made things very easy upon our arrival. We will recommend this villa to others and would definitely stay again.

Blyton Family:-
We would just like to say we all had a lovely time in your villa. It was like home-from-home. The children lived in the pool. The beds were so comfy and the peace and quiet bliss. Thank you for such a trouble-free booking from start to finish. We really do appreciate it and we would definitely book again.

White Family (UK)
Thank you, we all had a great time in your beautiful home.
The wildlife in particular was amazing, we all really just relaxed and enjoyed the laid back luxury your villa offered. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Dewar Family - UK
Many thanks for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and the wildlife was an added bonus. The villa itself was one of the best we have stayed in over 25 years worth of holidaying in villas across America & Europe.

We are quite picky about where we stay and rarely go back to the same villa twice. However, we would have no hesitation in returning to your villa if we were to travel South again. I have already been recommending your villa to my friends, family and work colleagues.

Harper Family (Scotland)
We have stayed in many many villas in Florida and yours is without doubt THE BEST! The location is ideal for beaches, town/shops and attractions especially idyllic Boca Grande and beautiful Sarasota. It is not surprising to read other comments from Guests in your Visitor Book which are all so positive and full of praise; so they should be! We will most certainly return - we cannot recommend your villa highly enough and will confirm to all that it truly is "Glorious Gulf Villa"

Kalinowski Family (Northants UK)
We had a fantastic time! Your villa is absolutely lovely and exceeded our expectations. We would be more than happy to provide feedback or a reference for you as we could not have asked for anything more. The weather was perfect, beaches idyllic, food mouth-watering, plenty of activities but lots of opportunities to relax. You and your family have obviously put a lot of thought into creating such a lovely home - I think you have thought of everything.

We have visited Florida many times and your villa is definitely at the top of our list. We have been thoroughly spoiled and could not have had a more perfect holiday.

Hall Family (Bucks UK)
Thank you for our Christmas and New Year stay in your fabulous home. We cannot describe our delight when we arrived at your house! Your villa is absolutely beautiful and we couldn't agree more with the other people who commented that it was amazing to find somewhere that was even better in the flesh than on the web! The area was fantastic and we fell in love with Bocca Grande. You will definitely be hearing from us again!

Riordan Family (UK)
"What can we say!!!"
Villa is absolutely stunning. Location, location, location!!
Well worth the drive from Orlando. Birds, raccoons, gators and fish all watched every day from the fishing dock and the pool. Shopping at Ellenton Mall is equal to the shopping at Orlando. Port Charlotte is great, the beaches at Englewood and Boca Grande (especially) all stunning and equal to any Caribbean beaches we've been to.
Stunning, all-in-all a fantastic holiday and can see us coming back to visit in the future.

Kiely Family (Lincolnshire UK)
Firstly, can we just thank you for sharing this lovely home. I can honestly say it is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. It has been a real treat. I have already recommended you to all our family and friends. Thanks once again, and we wish you luck for the future.

Bentley Family (UK)
We really enjoyed our stay in your villa and we found all the facilities you provided were excellent. Thank you for making the process of renting your villa very straight forward - your service and attention to detail were first class.

Greenaway Girls (Coventry UK)
We have an absolutely fantastic time in your beautiful villa, thank you. We did not want to leave! We shall definitely recommend you to our family and friends as I am sure they would love it as much as we did. It was a pleasure doing business with you and hope to go out again.

Ringle Family (USA)
We had a wonderful time and would definitely love to come back and bring our girls. You have a beautiful home. LOVE THE DECOR! Your taste in combining comfort and class is very impressive! We felt welcomed, accommodated and the private pool was that extra pampering that we needed. We want to re-book for next year please!

Harney Family (Toronto)
A simply wonderful vacation. We absolutely loved our time spent here. So relaxing - just what the doctor ordered! You have a gorgeous villa. Love the open plan concept. In fact, we stole a few ideas for our own home!! The kids loved the pool and we all took advantage of the lovely beaches.

We will definitely come back and will recommend to our family and friends.

Brand Family (Holland)
We have just arrived home from a wonderful holiday in your villa. We very much enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. You have a really nice house with such a nice atmosphere! The weather was good, we enjoyed the pool very much and even managed to play several rounds of golf as well which was great. We really enjoyed our stay and have great memories of spending Christmas 2007 in your beautiful home.

Horner Family - UK
We had a wonderful week at the villa and would have loved to have stayed longer and hope to return in the future. It is wonderful to find somewhere on the internet which, when visited, exceeds all of your expectations!
