What can we say other than Fantastic!
Thank you Bernadette & Paul for the opportunity to experience a wonderful week in your beautiful home. We’ve had such a relaxing time after a hectic week in Orlando.
The Rodeo on 4th July in Arcadia was great.
Thanks again.

We had a fabulous stay in Dragonflies, you have a beautiful home there and we felt very spoiled. We enjoyed the luxurious surroundings and appreciated the care that you have obviously put into the villa. The quality of all the linens and the nice touches like the cleansing pads in the bathrooms were very much appreciated! I can't think of anything you need to add - we found everything we needed and it was a joy to be in a fully equipped kitchen. The villa is so comfortable that no one was in a hurry to leave - we all enjoyed the pool.

I feel that we had a real holiday, relaxing mornings with lazy breakfasts on the lanai and leisurely exploring in the afternoon. The beaches we explored are beautiful, and the breeze from the Gulf made them so comfortable!

Thanks again for all your help, and for the use of your lovely home.
How can you ever bear to leave for rainy old England?

This was our second visit to Dragonflies and has been just as lovely as the first,like coming home.Perfect blue skies and lots of sunshine to make you smile.

Keep your eyes out for the tortoises that live at the bottom of the garden, they occasionally come out to say hello!

Thanks Bernadette & Paul for all your help.

Everything has been glorious and we hope to be back soon.

Once again Dragonflies lived up to and beyond our expectations. The villa was immaculate when we walked in and the sun was shining. What more could two whey faced Brits want? A fabulous time in hospitable surroundings.

The Pig ‘n Whistle is a great watering hole – only open for dinner though! If you, or someone you know loves bling and you are in the Naples area you can’t go wrong with The Best of Everything on Tamiami Trail N, (behind Big Mels or Als Diner) We saw the same pieces on St Armands Circle at 4x the price!

We hope that you enjoy your stay and walk the beautiful beaches as we did.

Your villa is beautiful and we have had a lovely time here. This is our fifth visit to Rotonda and the Gulf Coast.

We have been here for five weeks visiting Naples, Sarasota and Sanibel Island with four weeks of sunshine and one cold week .

Thank you for sharing Dragonflies with us. Look forward to coming again.

B&N Cumbria UK


Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa with us.

We have enjoyed many local restaurants: Lock n Key on Valentines day was great. On the access road at the top of Sunnybrook is an excellent family run Italian restaurant called Nicholas with great food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Rum Runners at Palm Island is a very enjoyable outing. You take a water taxi to Palm Island – watch out for dolphins!

Richard and I enjoyed a quiet week at your house – just what we needed.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at your beautiful villa. The house is stunning and you have added such wonderful touches. It was so nice to be here with my parents. It truly felt like home away from home.

Thank you and we hope to return someday.

What can we say that has not already been said! WOW!

We arrived in the middle of the night tired, hungry & travel weary to find the welcoming lights of Dragonflies.

The last month has been just so exhilarating, entertaining and relaxing with family. Taking in the so many experiences of the area - Golf, Ball games, Beaches, Shopping, Restaurants, meeting new people and coming across friends from home.

Most of all the last week of our holidays enjoying Dragonflies and coming down from a very busy time at home.

Thank you so much for making Dragonflies available to us.

Amazing Villa for a wonderful relaxing holiday

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

My partner and I stayed in the beautiful Dragonflies Villa - our second stay in this wonderful home from home. We spent the majority of our time relaxing in and around the amazing swimming pool. The villa is really tastefully decorated with no expense spared and has everything you could want and more in a holiday stay. There are supermarkets, shops and more within a 5-10 minute drive of the villa. Rotonda West has a children's play park and tennis courts which we used a few times taking advantage of the amazing weather. There are bikes at the Villa that we used most days to do some exploring - mainly around the nearby golf courses. The wildlife in the area is incredible - from Armadillos to Alligators and a multitude of beautiful birds! We rarely went out to restaurants because we had the use of a great BBQ and a kitchen with brilliant facilities. Communication from the lovely owners of the villa was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for better hosts. We will certainly be returning and would highly recommend Dragonflies Villa to everyone. As gorgeous as it looks on the photographs, it is even better in reality. We can't wait to return for another fantastic holiday!
