'This is a fabulous house and a wonderful location. At the end of our vacation we did not want to leave, it is so comfortable and finished to a very high standard. The house is ideally situated with an oversized deck and lanai, west facing and overlooking the lake and golf course. This is a house of exceptional quality; the owner really has thought of everything, there is nothing more you will need to ensure you have a wonderful vacation. We can't wait to make a return visit.
"Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay here at Sunset Lake Villa. We have rented villas in Florida for the last 20 years and rate this as our favourite. We found it very well appointed and comfortable both inside and out and everything we needed was here. One of our highlights was seeing a beautiful bobcat on the green opposite and another when we had a close encounter with two Sandhill Cranes on Oyster Creek Golf Course. Sorry to be leaving especially as snow is forecast when we arrive home - but looking forward to returning next year."
The villa was excellent, very clean and tidy and the pool was warm and the area around the pool was spacious. I loved the bikes and went out every day for some exercise. It was very peaceful.
The home was absolutely fabulous and met all our needs. Loved the location as it was central to all of the things we wanted to do. We spent many hours in the pool, reading and lounging. We cooked out several nights and enjoyed the Seafood available in the area. On our next visit we will be sure to enjoy the local golf courses".
It is always with some sadness that we leave Rotonda each time we vacation here. Our experience sharing your villa this year has been as enjoyable as the best of the past 15 years plus! It has been a delight to stay in your well appointed and tastefully decorated house. Thank you for letting us use it for the past four weeks. We have all had a very comfortable, relaxing and super holiday! Blighty (UK) will feel somewhat different when we return to low 50 degrees F compared to 80 in the pool here. Thanks you so much.
"Just a note of thanks and appreciation. I can't tell you how happy I was when I first entered your home and looked around! We had a wonderful vacation and loved staying at your house and felt very blessed to be celebrating the holidays here. It was so very comfortable and had every amenity. We really appreciated all of the extras you provided. I swam every day and rode the bikes on multiple occasions. We had a great time using the shark tooth finder and found several of them at different beaches. We appreciated the restaurant guides and beach guides too. I used them repeatedly and found them very helpful. Really appreciate your attention to details. You really thought of everything!!! Your kindness is truly appreciated. The time here will leave us with precious memories."
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your villa. We found that the villa had everything that we needed during our stay for a perfect holiday (cool box, beach chairs, parasol etc). The pool and the Jacuzzi were wonderful, the best we have had in all of our visits to Florida. The villa was very well presented and was decorated beautifully. During our stay there was a tropical storm, so we were unable to leave the villa, we spent the day playing the various board games, puzzles and cards that were available to us, this was a lovely touch! The area around the villa was very peaceful and the view over the lake was beautiful. The villa is also in a great location and was only a short drive to the many beaches. We hope to book this villa again during our next visit to Florida.
We had the most relaxing time at Sunset Lake. It is by far the best equipped and most beautifully presented holiday home we have ever stayed in. The villa is extremely spacious, and well laid out. We spent lots of time relaxing by the pool, playing board games that the host have supplied, and cooking in the nicely designed kitchen. The hosts have done a great job of providing lots of information about local places of interest in the villa. We would highly recommend Captain Jack's Fishing Charter, if you're lucky you might bring home you dinner - which they will fillet for you. There's plenty of places to go for dinner. For a delicious healthy option we loved Mango Bistro. On more that one evening we drove to the beach at Gasparilla Island and ate at the South Beach Restaurant. And for something fun we enjoyed Flounders restaurant and Tiki Bar. We look forward to going back to the villa with our parents and our children for family holiday!
We are so looking forward to revisiting Sunset Lake Villa on Rotonda, Florida. This house is well located overlooking a lake and green of Long Marsh Golf Course. Inside is a real home from home, beautifully furnished and so well equipped. I wish that my kitchen at home had so many gadgets and labour saving devices as this one? The owners have catered for so many outdoor interests and hobbies like golfing, cycling and angling. The real joy for us was the lanai. After all the daily activity what could be better than to relax on one of the sumptuous loungers with a long, cool drink and watch the sun set. Magical.
Today we are leaving after a wonderful month here. We are regular Rotonda visitors and all of the previous villas have been excellent but this one is the one we have felt the most at home it! Our favourite restaurant this year was Leverocks. I don't feel I need to add any more than the fact that we have already booked for next year. Well done Hugh and Margaret, we love it.
Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay here at Sunset Lake Villa. We have rented villas in Florida for the past 20 years, the last 15 in Rotonda and rate this as our favourite. We found it very well appointed and comfortable, both inside and out and everything we needed was here. One of our highlights was seeing a beautiful bobcat on the Green opposite and another when we had a close encounter with two Sandhill Cranes on Oyster Creek Golf Course. Sorry to be leaving especially as snow is forecast when we arrive home, but looking forward to next year.
Thanks for the wonderful stay in your lovely villa which began with a welcome phone call from Margaret. The villa is so fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. We were so pleased to see the local gator along with an armadillo, several birds of prey and a manatee in the sea at Blind Pass Beach and of course the dolphins!! We look forward to staying again soon.
Thanks for letting us stay here, it has been wonderful. We have been coming to Florida for over 20 years and this has been the best place we have stayed. It was so well equipped and we loved watching the wildlife. Once again thank you and we will be back soon.
We've had a fantastic week here. Loved the pool deck, the views were outstanding. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and beautifully light and airy. We hope to return in the future.
Your villa could be summed up in only two words, Absolutely Fantastic! We've done nothing all week besides chilling out on your wonderful lanai. The peacefulness was sublime. What a location. We can't tell you anymore because we didn't do anything which says so much for your beautiful home. Thank you.
Another great two weeks here. We survived Alberto (bad weather) and it did not stop our enjoyment. Spent quite a few days at Manasota Beach. Found about 50 Shark's Teeth, a nice way to take a walk along the shore! Lots of very good meals, beers and cocktails. Will be back next year. Thanks.
I love this home. We have had a fantastic week here. I have been to Yoga on the beach three times and we went to the Drumming Circle on Sunday! The sunsets here are beautiful. I wish I could live here. Your villa is the best we have ever stayed in. Thank you so much.
After a nonstop busy week in Orlando, this was the most perfect villa to come down to! The whole place is amazing and everything is so well thought out. We had fantastic lazy days out on the Lanai, so peaceful and relaxing with a great view! Only regret we can't stay longer! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your lovely villa.
Having visited Florida for many years, this is without a doubt the best property we have stayed in. On the verge of retirement we are scouting for our own house and this really is what we are looking for in a home. Along with our children and grandchild we have spent much of our time on the spacious lanai and around the pool area. Even saw a gator this morning! We will return, thank you.
We have had a wonderful time during our stay in Rotonda West. Your villa fitted our needs perfectly and really is like a home from home. We saw an alligator swim by in the lake one night. He did stop to have a look at us and then continued his journey. Myakka State Park was brilliant, definitely a highlight for us. Ate at Prime Time Mexican/Steak Restaurant, a bit old school but lovely food and full of locals. Hope to be back.
Well once again we are leaving this lovely house after a relaxing month here. We found everything we wanted here and really feel as if this is our second home. No sign of the alligators that we saw last year but a lot more ducks and wading birds. Many thanks Margaret and Hugh, we are looking forward to next February already.
Your home is so lovely. We really enjoyed our 5 weeks here. You have thought of everything imaginable to offer to your guests. It is truly appreciated. Lisa and the gang are wonderful caretakers, they truly care! The hone was clean and tidy. We have enjoyed the beaches here. We learned that George W Bush and Laura reside in Boca and grocery shop at the Publix closest to you. They are so down to earth and Friendly
Another wonderful month spent here. Our personal highlight was Phil’s hole-in-one on the 13th hole of Oyster Creek GC. Took lots of videos of the resident alligators and enjoyed watching the efforts of golfers opposite. As before, villa was superb and everything we needed and more was available. Enjoyed our chats with your pool man, lovely guy.
Another wonderful week again spent living in your beautiful home This time we left the kids at home and brought friends. Most of the time was chilling by the pool with some time spent on the golf course, on the bikes or running up and down your road and chatting to neighbours. Thank you for providing the platform for our relaxation and enjoyment
Have had the most amazing time here in your wonderful villa. A great week relaxing, playing golf and cycling. Enjoyed the peace, the wildlife and time spent with good friends.Thank you for such a well equipped and beautiful home. Maybe one day we would hope to return
Another great holiday in this lovely home. The weather has been fantastic, even enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the rain. Always seem to find new places to eat and shop, this year Coco Plum shopping centre where there is a First Watchday cafe great for breakfast or lunch. The Port Charlotte Shopping Mall is great. We signed up for the over 50s and got some great discounts. Enjoyed great meals at Longhorns, Hooters and you must try the Crab cakes at the Waterfront Grill. Booked for 2020 already
Our first time here, found the villa to be spectacular! well named as Sunset Lake Villa. Weather brilliant, possibly too much, now a little spoilt as going back home. The thunderstorms also made a great display. Thanks for letting us stay at your lovely villa
We travelled to Rotonda West to celebrate a wedding and we want to thank you for your wonderful accommodation. Your place is beautiful. comfy and so relaxing. We had the best of time in Florida enjoying weather, beach time, wedding festivities, deep sea fishing with Wild Mullet Charters & Captain Will and quality time with family and friends
We have enjoyed our week here. The pool was great, house fab. We loved the area as it had lots of fun things to do like going to the beaches, shops and eating out at the wonderful restaurants. When we were at one of the restaurants we even saw a dolphin but no sign of alligators even though we played guitar as recommended to attract them! My dad got on a bike every morning cycling around the area, he had the best time. We will definitely come back!
Rotonda West has its own Nature Reserve so you are seldom far from Florida's greenery and abundant wild-life. Herons, egrets, wood-stork and even ospreys and bald eagles have been seen fishing here. The area boasts a number of beautiful Parks for the more adventurous and is a great base for getting out and about. It is a short and pleasant drive to several beautiful beaches and the magical waters of the Gulf at Englewood, Stump Pass, Manasota Key and Blind Pass. Just a little further and you'll reach stunning Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Be prepared to enjoy the wild life at the beaches too. We have yet to miss photo opportunities as Dolphins swim close to the beach and there are so many seabirds feeding that they'll entertain you too. It's just perfect for an idyllic, relaxing vacation.
The villa is on a quiet cul-de-sac parallel to the first hole of Pine Valley Golf course. Within the Rotonda Community, Pine Valley Golf Course forms the latest part of the 27 hole White Marsh Golf Club, itself one of Rotonda's 5 golf courses. Another of these, The Hills, is the venue for active Social events that you are welcome to attend. The folks are friendly. There are even more excellent golf courses nearby, 3 more within 5 miles. That makes 8!
