We thank you again for a great vacation! We are already talking about when we want to come back!!!” – S.S.
“We first used Nigel and Barbara’s Villa back in 2006; up to this time we had stayed in several villas in Orlando but never on the gulf coast, and to say that this was a lucky find would be an understatement.
The villa is a spacious and extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated to a high standard
more than a cut above your standard holiday accommodation, it is in a quiet location but in easy reach of all major shops and only a short drive from Englewood and its beautiful beaches. We have stayed here 4 times now and each time we have had a wonderfully stay.
The pool gets like a bath in the summer and with the solar heating on is more than comfortable in Florida’s winter months (which generally are in the 70s). I have many fond memories of floating on a lilo at night in the pool listening to the crickets in the woodland surrounding the villa.
The master bedroom is large with veiws of the pool and woodlands and the master bathroom is fantastic with a large corner jacuzzi bath and double head walk in shower, there is a family bathroom and poolside toilet as well three more large comfortable rooms. The kitchen is bright and large and very clean with every modern convenience; we cooked a full christmas dinner in the oven which is huge,there are two very comfotable living areas and several TV sets, plus games and books, which means relaxing in the villa is easy.
With golf courses, beaches, fantastic resturants on your door step and a wonder full villa to relax in what more could you want, Nigel and Barbra are also lovely to deal with and we thank them for sharing their piece of paradise with us.” – P.D. & Family
“We would like to thank you for our stay in you family villa in May this year. We travelled down from Orlando after spending a week in the Disney area; it was a complete change and give us a chance to sample the real Florida.
The villa was immaculate with everything spotless, we were overcome by the amount of space. Even though there was just the two of us, there would be plenty of room for a large family. The villa had everything we needed and more and the pool was great to come home to after a day out exploring the region.
The location, as you informed us, in a quite residential area, is very peaceful with only the sounds of the birds, and the occasional golf club striking a ball to disturb the peace. The pace of life is not the usually hustle and bustle of the Florida we see in and around Orlando and Disney, and we loved it.
We found several State Parks in the area that we really liked. I must say, that even though we have been to Florida several times before this was the best area that we have visited.
As we drove off the drive, to head back to Tampa Airport for our flight home, my wife said:
“I wish we could stay another week instead of going home”, and I could only agree with her.” – R.G.
“We had a wonderful time at your home in Florida!”, “wonderful pool” – S.S.
