“Hear, hear ...View, view, view”
This was our first return to the Rotonda since 2004 after escaping Hurricane Charlie by just 24 hours. This time we were blown away by the villa location and its quality interior. We'd searched for a lake view. We had that view in spades and it was all to ourselves. The neighbouring villa was set back and not visible from the pool area and the double lot meant nothing but trees to the right. It was an idyllic private setting to laze an afternoon away in the sun. The interior was as good. It was well maintained, light, airy, designed to maximise the lake view and had comfortable beds and furnishings. We knew the Rotonda well, and this was up there with best villa we'd stayed in, and way above the average ones. It stood out by being someone's home and not just a rental income. Extras provided were great. The bikes were good for sightseeing the Rotonda ... but only early morning !!! Too hot later. Detailed directions made TV and DVD use idiot proof, or at least we could switch between them without asking our son and technical advisor back in the UK. A 30 minute trip, driveway to beach, returned us to our favourite beach on Gasparilla Island and just under 20 minutes took us to the closest beach at Engelwood. North from Engelwood up Manasota Key took us to a couple of good beaches with facilities, both well worth a visit, but we kept returning to Gasparilla Island. The parasols, beach chairs and cooler provided made those trips easy and comfortable. To celebrate our last day we ended up being one of the first cars over the new Gasparilla Bridge and were snapped on the contractor's camera. If you go that way get your camera ready for the Ospreys fishing from the telephone poles alongside the road. If you go to the Rotonda you won't go wrong staying in Minslake.
Response from the owner Thankyou so much for your comments, I am sure they will be more than helpful to any future renters that may be looking in this area. I work very hard to offer the perfect holiday accommodation and it is so gratifying when it is appreciated.
“Fantastic home with amazing views. A relaxing home from home!”
We have just returned from a 3 week holiday in Florida. After spending the first two weeks in a very large 5 bed villa in Davenport with extended family, we didn't think things could get any better... Until we arrived at 'Minslake' on Rotonda. We could not believe our luck! This villa is exceptional in every way,from the decor, cleanliness and large, airy interior, to the pool,lanai and patio area that has stunning views of a large lake, where we saw a vast array of wildlife. We had a fantastic, relaxing week at Minslake after a hectic fortnight touring Orlando theme parks. There are plenty of opportunities to visit places of interest, beeches,golf courses etc all within a very short drive. The photographs in the gallery are good but do not do this exceptional property justice. Thank you
Response from the owner Thankyou so, so much for your wonderful comments. I am sure everyone thinks their home is the one of the best but I do try to give guests what I would expect to find. It is wonderful when a guest appreciates what you provide. Thankyou Tracey and look forward to seeing you again in future.
“Great Location - a haven of peace and quiet”
Booked after studying the excellent website and the villa came up to all expectations. The equipment was very comprehensive, the beds very comfortable, and the view outstanding. The location on a No Outlet street made for very little traffic noise, so we were able the really appreciate the abundant wild life parading in front of the lanai. The villa is in easy reach of local beaches and restaurants and is in a very well maintained residential area.
“Home away from home!”
Minslake is quite simply a home away from home. Furnished to a very high standard with everything you could wish for a relaxing break. The villa is beautifully kept among manicured grounds in a quiet location away from it all. The pool overlooks the lake and is very private, hours are passed relaxing while watching the wildlife. The computer/Printer is an added bonus and ideal for finding places to visit, cinema times, opening times, restaurants, events and for online check in at the airport etc. There are plenty of books, games and magazines. Beach equipment is provided with a coolbox for picnics. A couple of bikes are provided which are great, although at some of the parks you can rent them too. The villa is close to shops restaurants and supermarkets. Port Charlotte is only 20 minutes away with a Mall, Cinema and lots of restaurants. The beautiful beaches are close too. The Villa was a wonderful base to explore the Gulf Coast and beyond, we travelled to Orlando, Miami, The keys and Everglades from here easily. Tampa airport is a straight 90 minutes away. Outlet Malls are an hours ride away too for those bargain shopping trips and a little quieter and more relaxed than Orlando. We love this Villa so much we won't stay anywhere else! The management team are fantastic and on hand should you have any problems (although you probably won't need them!) The inside is kept immaculate and never fails to impress us when we arrive, its a much welcomed site after a long journey. If we have to pick one fault it would be no BBQ, although there are so many restaurants to try and you may not have the time to use it!
“A piece of Tranquility.”
My Wife and myself were looking for a villa over Christmas.Somewhere with a water view,without being too busy. Minslake filled the bill 100% It was clean,bright,Expensively furnished, easy to get around in.All your home comforts were available, including free internet access if you needed to message friends,We only used the one bed, it was a very comfortable one,something that you hope for if you stay at any home /Hotel but don't always get.There was a Good sized TV In the lounge, and plenty of Dvds for a quiet evening at home.We never needed anything that was not to hand. Even the clock in the day room is a pleasant experience. .The pool was superb,very clean and easy to get in and out, young or old alike.Ideal for all kinds of swimming, games for kids etc. no fussy plants waterfalls,or other items to bump into, just a quality pool, that even in the winter was 80 degrees.Even the garage was immaculate with pool toys, beach chairs, etc.Another good thing about this home we noticed was the lack of noise from the air-con.It just ran in the background and did its job.No waking up in the night when it came on or off.Altogether a very pleasant experience.We have been to many homes in this part of Florida and this is one we can without doubt recommend.We will certainly go there again. I'm sure I could write forever about the qualities of this home,don't just take our word for it,try it for yourselves.I guarantee you will not be disappointed.The owner too is very approachable,If she can help at all she will.If you are at all in any doubt as to if this review is not 100% genuine, you are most welcome to ask for our Email /Phone number.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to send in this review. I try so hard to give renters exactly what I would like when I stay away and your comments make it all worthwhile.
House in a very quiet location but handy for beaches, shops etc. Beautifully decorated and appointed. We particularly enjoyed sitting by the pool by day and night watching and listening to the wildlife.A minor maintenance problem was dealt with very swiftly.
“Truly relaxing idyllic spot with wonderful decor & ammenties”
This home is very well kitted out and sits in a beautiful idyllic spot over looking a lake. Close to great beaches and lovely restaurants. Though also has a great pool which are children loved. So much so they ended up looking like prunes because they stayed in there for so long! Have booked to return again next august, as even though we enjoy the hustle and bustle of Orlando we throughly enjoy chilling out with a house that is so well kept. Every little detail has been thought of! Doesn't feel like a rental home, as it has such a family feel about it. I would definitely recommend this rental house/villa to my friends.
This was our 1st trip to america so we were a little unsure what to expect but boy were we amazed. The villa was outstanding with luxurious accomodation including every home comfort you could possible need. The owner has put a lot of thought into providing extra's such as bikes, beach equipment, pool toys etc. The pool is beautifully clean and was a welcome site after a long day sightseeing. Our children really enjoyed the wild life especially Moses who made a regular apperance each evening. The welcome pack was a great idea giving us local information on places to eat and visit that otherwise we may not have found. We have had a fantastic holiday and can't wait to come back.
