Florida Gulf Coast Villa Rental Sunstate Paradise - Stork's Watch, Rotonda


Please add a comment to my guestbook

  1. Great place to stay in! Excellent conditions in lovely neighborhood!!!
    Me and my family stayed here in Dec 2014 during the Holiday season and had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa. Rotonda West is a nice residential area, offering peace and quite time, but close enough to many beaches, restaurants and terraces, to enjoy the beautiful Florida. The villa had everything we needed for the family: a nice heated pool for the kids to play, a canal and private pond for my husband to do his fishing right out of the home's back yard and lots of space for relaxation, which I needed so much. The owner and the property manager were both very helpful and eager to help and provide advise as needed. Much appreciated. The beaches on the nearby islands are great and very easily accessible (a few kilometers - only minutes of driving, with free parking area). There are many large stores and supermarkets within short driving distance, and there is a fish market down in Placida, for fresh fish at great prices. We felt great in this lovely, well equipped and welcoming home and we would warmly recommend it to our friends and family.

  2. We are a family of three, and we stayed at Stork's Watch for 3 weeks in June / July 2013.
    Stork's Watch is the ideal family holiday villa and a terrific base form which to explore the Gulf Coast. The property is situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Rotunda West and it is brilliantly equipped with all necessary conveniences. The south-facing pool is perfect for long lazy days soaking up the Florida sun - and the pool-side BBQ happily rounds off those lazy days. Walmart is just minutes away and there is a range of great restaurants within a short drive. We would particularly recommend The Codfathers for fish (15 minutes drive) and Nicola's Kitchen for pizza (5 minutes). The beautiful beaches of Manasota Key are just 10 minutes away, with some great places for beach-side dining. The white sand beaches of the Boca Grande are a little further away but the stroll along the beach around the old Light House is definitely worth the drive. And for a day-trip take in Fort Myers and drive on the the gorgeous Sanibel - again you will enjoy the most beautiful beaches. There's outlet shopping closeby at Port Charlotte, and an hour to the north you can enjoy all that Tampa has to offer. If you were to try just one Park then Busch Gardens is definitely the one.
    Management Compnay were excellent and responded quickly and efficiently to our minor technical glitch with the wi-fi.
    All in all - Stork's Watch is hugely recommended.

  3. It is with " Great " pleasure that we comment on our renting of Storks Watch ! We had an amazing time here for the whole month of February 2013 . The house was everything we had hoped it would be and as described by the owners . No surprises ! Plenty of linen , tableware , towells and all in excellant condition . It is in a very good location , away from the hustle and bustle but close to all you might crave , shopping , beaches , golf courses , restaurants . The house is well taken care of , has plenty of living area inside and out , and the pool was a constant source of enjoyment on those hot afternoons . The owners showed a honest interest that we were satisfied with the accomidations and that we felt at home . We will certainly recommend this facility to our friends and to those seeking a place to get away from it all ! Well done Marshall & Louise

  4. We just returned from a month at Stork's Watch from mid-March. We really enjoyed the house and found it fully equipped, clean and comfortable. Sitting by the pool and watching the birdlife was most enjoyable. The neighbourhood is very pleasant with golf, biking and the beach nearby. We golfed a number of times at Long March which was in excellent condition and has a driving range. It is only a couple of minutes from the house. Pinemoor is also nearby, worthwhile but not in quite as good shape. In the region we also golfed Bobcat Trail - very good and heard from friends that Kingsway is a good track. We biked the Cape Haze Pioneer Trail a number of times - it is easily reachable on a bike from the house. We enjoyed Boca Grande for the town and the beach and also Stump Pass Beach which we frequented - searching for shark's teeth. A wonderful holiday!

  5. A really lovely holiday, in a lovely home.Accommodation was just as described & we all found it to be really comfortable & we felt at home from the start. Weather was perfect with temps of 80 plus for our first two weeks a little cooler for the later a cool 73. Beaches a dream, our favourite Boca Grande & Manasota. Did lots of sightseeing but also enjoyed sitting by the pool & watching the birds.
    Highlight of the month Christmas Parade on Rotonda, everyone so very friendly & polite.
    Loved our holiday & STORKS WATCH

  7. We had the pleasure of staying at "Storks Watch" at the beginning of March. This is a beautiful and immaculate property in a lovely area of the Gulf Coast. There is plenty of space for 2 families, it is spotlessly clean and the pool is super. All commumications with Marshall & Louise were prompt and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending to all friends and family alike and will return when next in Florida. Thanks Marshall & Louise, you have a wonderful place in the sun!

  8. Our stay was one of the most pleasant experiences we've had. The booking was straightforward. Communication with owners was perfect. The management team dealt with any slight issue immediately and were polite and friendly. The house was spotless and the pool and surrounding area were great. We especially enjoyed the dock at the back of the property where we could watch the various birds. We have already requested a return stay for 2012!!
