"Over the past 20 years we have stayed in lots of villas in Florida and Glorious Gulf Villa is without doubt THE BEST! The location is ideal for beaches, town/shops and attractions especially the idyllic Boca Grande beach and beautiful Sarasota. It is not surprising to read other Guests comments in the Visitor Book which are all so positive and full of praise so they should be!! We normally never return twice to the same villa but we just love re-booking your villa, safe in the knowledge that everything is going to be perfect and we can relax and have a great fun there. We cannot recommend your villa highly enough and will confirm to all that it truly is a..."Glorious Gulf Villa!" The Harper Family (Scotland)

Meet the owner

Victoria Brodie
Hi, we are the Brodie Family from Buckinghamshire - England and the owners of GLORIOUS GULF VILLA.

After a magical family holiday in Florida in 2006, we fell in love with the Gulf Coast area, and decided to put our heart and soul into building our dream holiday home in Rotonda. Being big fans of the water, we found the perfect plot of land on the waterfront, choose a great specification of house and after much blood, sweat and tears we made the all final design decisions for both the interior and exterior.

We wanted our villa to be stylish yet homely. The contemporary open-plan layout makes it a very welcoming and social home. We also wanted a unique point too; hence the private fishing dock at the bottom of the garden. We have 2 young daughters who are full of love and laughter so they enjoyed giving their seal of approval on the heated pool, comfy beds and size of TV!

Since welcoming our first Guests in 2007, we have consistently provided a personal, professional and friendly service to everyone who has booked with us. We pride ourselves on offering excellent Customer Service and great attention to detail. We know only too well how stressful finding the right accommodation can be so we make sure we keep in regular contact with you all the way through to ensure that everything runs smoothly for you.
Being 4,000 miles away we know the importance of having a reliable local Management Team who deal with day-to-day issues on behalf but we also regularly visit our home to ensure the high standards are fully maintained.

We hope to welcome you to our GLORIOUS GULF VILLA one day!

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely villa. We enjoyed our week so much and didn’t want to leave, there was nothing that could have made our holiday better than it was. Everything was absolutely spotless and maintained so well. We had some great meals especially at Prime Time and spent most mornings on the beautiful Boca beach. We really would love to come back to your Glorious Gulf Villa next year for longer and are already looking at dates. We will definitely recommend your house to family and friends who appreciate luxury accommodation in the perfect peaceful location.

The home is completely relaxing and beautiful. Located in a quiet area of Rotonda. We golfed and viewed the area with a short visit from our daughter and family. Best Dolphin trip was on a boat from Englewood Beach. Home has everything you need and more. Lots of information for things to do. Read previous guests comments to see other things to do and see. Victoria (the Owner) is great to work with and very helpful. Enjoyed our trip very much would highly recommend this home.

"What a beautiful, quiet and relaxing home you have...just what the Doctor ordered! A great place to sit back by the pool and enjoy the wildlife and most of all sunshine. We enjoyed all the places you recommended to shop and visit and of course, golf. Your villa information binder and all the notes around the house made things very easy upon our arrival. We would definitely recommend & would love to stay again."
* * * * * *
"When we first arrived, we were definitely "Wowed! by your beautiful villa. The tasteful décor and luxury feel made it some welcoming and homely. It is extremely peaceful here; especially a week at the busy parks. To watch the wildlife is really something special. Everything feels so clean and comfortable - lovely comfy beds too! Its so nice to go to a holiday home that has so much attention to detail and everything such good quality. A week was definitely not enough - we would love to return one day."
* * * * * *
"We would just like to say we all had a lovely time in your villa. It was like home-from-home. The children lived in the pool. The beds were so comfy and the peace and quiet bliss. Thank you for such a trouble-free booking from start to finish. We really do appreciate it and we would definitely book again."
* * * * * *
"Many thanks for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and the wildlife was an added bonus. The villa itself was one of the best we have stayed in over 25 years worth of holidaying in villas across America & Europe. We are quite picky about where we stay and rarely go back to the same villa twice. However, we would have no hesitation in returning to your villa if we were to travel South again. I have already been recommending your villa to my friends, family and work colleagues."
* * * * * *
"Just wanted to say that the villa is brilliant. We all loved it so much. Easily the nicest villa we have stayed in. Every little thought has gone in to making your home very special and comfortable."
* * * * * *
"A great stay had by all. Your villa is first class and this area of Florida is superb. We did a couple of days in Orlando and couldn't wait to get back!"
* * * * * *
"We had a fantastic time! Your villa is absolutely lovely and exceeded our expectations. We would be more than happy to provide feedback or a reference for you as we could not have asked for anything more. The weather was perfect, beaches idyllic, food mouth-watering, plenty of activities but lots of opportunities to relax. You and your family have obviously put a lot of thought into creating such a lovely home - I think you have thought of everything. We have visited Florida many times & your villa is definitely at the top of our list. We have been thoroughly spoiled and could not have had a more perfect holiday".
* * * * * *
"Thank you for our Christmas and New Year stay in your fabulous home. We cannot describe our delight when we arrived at your house! Your villa is absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t agree more with the other people who commented that it was amazing to find somewhere that was even better in the flesh than on the web! The area was fantastic and we fell in love with Bocca Grande. You will definitely be hearing from us again!"
* * * * * *
"What can we say??!!! Villa is absolutely stunning. Location, location, location!! Well worth the drive from Orlando. Birds, raccoons, gators and fish all watched every day from the fishing dock and the pool. Shopping at Ellenton Mall is equal to the shopping at Orlando. Port Charlotte is great, the beaches at Englewood and Boca Grande (especially) all stunning and equal to any Caribbean beaches we’ve been to. Stunning, all-in-all a fantastic holiday and can see us coming back to visit in the future."
* * * * * *
"Firstly, can we just thank you for sharing this lovely home. I can honestly say it is the BEST holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. It has been a real treat. I have already recommended you to all our family and friends. Thanks once again, and we wish you luck for the future."

It was our second visit to the Villa and it felt like visiting an old friend. We just picked up from where we left off. Loads of interesting things to do in the surrounding area also good shopping and eating out in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. It lived up to the fond memories of our first visit.
