Paradise with a Capital 'P'

When you mention Florida most think of the Theme Parks but there is much more and Rotonda West offers an alternative.
If you do then I can recommend Starfish Villa as being the perfect base for your adventures. The brochure pictures give the luxury feel, but when you view it in the flesh you will get that 'wow' feeling. Villas in Rotonda West always have space between them and Starfish Villa has ample.
It is well maintained, has every possible amenity and a pool and spa that provide the icing on the cake. The villa is luxurious and you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door.
Rotonda West is in itself a wonderful area to explore, whether on foot or bike (The villa has 5 adult and 1 child bike for your use).
There are supermarkets and restaurants minutes away as well as beaches and if you like fishing, I recommend Venice Pier, its free and Walmart sell excellent rods for under $20.
They say the yardstick of any holiday is would you return, the answer is a big Yes to both the villa and Rotoda West

Starfish Villa Rotonda West
George Kerr
Fantastic villa with everything you would ever need for a great holiday.
The communication between Denise the owner and Lisa the agent over there was second to none.
Would definitely return and recommend the villa to all our friends and family.

Excellent Villa with Everything You Need to Make Your Holiday Extra Special!!!
Wow! What a wonderful well equipped villa! We have rented many villas before, but this one truly stood out! It is a well maintained, clean, and spacious villa. The big screen TV, the relaxing spa, the outdoor BBQ/Kitchen, beach equipment, pool toys...and of course the lovely pool...just made our holiday exceptional! I honestly can't think of what else this villa needed...because it had everything! The owners are also wonderful people and very quick to respond to inquiries and very accommodating! Thank you so very much!

stunning place for hollidays!! fully recommended!
Excellent house for hollidays. The house was fully equipped with even more things that we expected. We were staying with two kids that enjoyed so much the whole house and especially the pool area! Perfect time for our hollidays, we will definitely go back. The landlord was very kind and very helpful. The house made us feel like at home..fully recommended. The near Beaches, just few minutes far by car, were just great! Thank you Denise!

A Beautiful, quiet Villa! Everything you need for a relaxing vacation!
Trenia Overton
The house was beautiful and the neighborhood very peaceful. It was clean and had all of the admenaties a family needs on a long, quiet vacation: a large kitchen, a laundry room and an outdoor BarBQ. All of the plates, pots and pans and cutlery you need to make a meal at home. The pool and hot tub were fantastic! My granddaughter kept us in the pool most of the time that we were away from the beach. The beaches were about a 10 to 15 minute drive depending on which one you choose. All had public parking, great shelling and a surprise bonus for us prehistoric shark teeth! There were plenty of restaurants around to have a bite out on the go and quite a few grocery stores and of course a Walmart close by to stock up on food or household items you need during your stay. The owners are lovely people. Very friendly and helpful! We would definitely recommend this vacation property and hope to spend our next beach vacation here again. Thanks so much!!!

About STARFISH VILLA - Welcome to our Very Private, large 3 bedroom, stunning and professionally decorated home, close to beautiful beaches and Championship golf courses

Stunning and professionally decorated large villa on the golfing community of Rotonda West. Our home is large enough to accommodate 6 people. We are very proud of our home and know that you will have a fantastic holiday. Our home is complete with everything to make your holiday comfortable.

Designed to a very high specification, with cream carpets in the main room and bedrooms. We have leather sofas to relax on whilst either reading or watching TV or just sit listening to music over our high tech music system which can play in every room in the house even the bathrooms! Choose your favourite CD's to bring with you on holiday and you really are in paradise!

The pool and hot tub are really top of the range and you won't want to get out of the pool. Especially after a long day at one of the many sandy beaches. Enjoy a family BBQ using the conveniently placed summer kitchen under the lanai, the family can swim whilst the food is cooking slowly on the BBQ! Our house is not overlooked and is completely private and secluded, ideal for sunbathing in the garden.

If you want to venture out of the house you will find 5 bikes in the garage. Jump on and go on a journey to the park complete with swings, baseball park and BBQ area. Or pick one of the many beaches to visit, you will find all the information in the house file located in the kitchen. Also in the garage we have supplied beach chairs and buckets and spades!

To really get into the spirit of Florida go to the Tampa Bay Rays baseball park which is just 20 minutes by car towards Port Charlotte, grab some popcorn and a baseball cap and cheer on the Stonecrabs! There is a Tigi bar at the baseball park so you can still watch the game whilst having a cool drink with the family. This really is a brilliant night out, we've been twice and loved it!!

If you fancy hiring a Harley Davidson bike the rental company is close by - we did and travelled down to Key West - great fun and a brilliant way to see Florida! If you are interested there are leaflets in the house or contact the owners direct for details.

There is so much to do in the area, one of the main pastimes in the Rotonda area is playing golf. There are 5 Championships golf courses less than 10 minutes away from the house. They have friendly club houses and are very happy for holiday makers to book a round or two. Take the children along and enjoy a very good value meal after playing golf.

For eating out there are too many restaurants to mention. Our favourites are Red Lobster at Port Charlotte after day shopping in the Port Charlotte Mall. Or if you fancy a day at the beach down at Venice there is Sharkeys on the Pier. The food here is absolutely gorgeous and you can stay and watch the sun go down whilst sipping a cool cocktail!
