We chose Tranquility for our vacation over Christmas 2020 and couldn’t have been happier! The pre-booking and pre-trip communication with owners was absolutely fantastic! They answered all of my many questions, and gave such detailed information about the area that I felt like I was going somewhere I was already comfortable at! Everything from places to eat, beaches nearby, values, detailed directions to everywhere including the airport. We truly felt more at home than we ever have on a vacation! The house was fantastic! Two master suites, plus two extra bedrooms with two twin beds each! A living room and a family room, and a truly fully-equipped kitchen! Plus a garage to use, beach and pool amenities, a grill, and bicycles! Literally EVERYTHING you could need is here! The peace in the area was wonderful! On the end of a street in a very nice neighborhood where the canals T-ed behind and beside the house (very visible from the lanai), we saw tons of wildlife including a bobcat, wild boar (at a distance!), and a huge array of Florida’s birds! We spent a lot of time on the lanai and in the heated pool - what a treat when the weather turned cool for a couple days! On a scale to 10, this place gets a 12!! Absolute value for a larger family. Everything you need to stay ‘home’ and keep everyone fed, occupied, and happy, plus PLENTY of room! Yet minutes away from great beaches, shops, numerous beach towns, boat rentals, kayaks - everything a Florida vacation should be!!You will LOVE this place! Big thanks to the owners and people who do the upkeep for them! We will definitely be back!!

2 weeks in this villa was not long enough. Wendy and Derek have thought of everything to make your stay as easy and stress free as possible. Villa was immaculately prepared for our arrival and we found the local management company to act promptly to any enquiries. This was our second stay in the villa, we found the peace and tranquillity of the location perfect for us.
Derek and Wendy are a pleasure to deal with and answer all communications promptly - even from around the pool when they were at the villa themselves!
Will definitely re-book

WOW, this what what we said when we walked in to this perfect villa, we are still saying wow now! The villa is in the most perfect position, plenty of space between the houses and not overlooked at all with no one to the right of the property at all. The villa is large, spread out nicely so you are not on top of each other (perfect for 2 families) but with a lovely living space in the middle where the family room and tv are and the kitchen together. The rooms are large with 2 ensuites, the master is massive with a to die for bathroom (my favourite room!) this includes double sinks, (on different sides of the room) a bath tub and separate shower cubicle. The other ensuite has a large shower in the bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms are twins and share the 3rd bathroom. Everywhere is decorated nicely and there must be everything you could want in this villa it is very well equipped from towels, both bath and beach, coffee makers, slow cookers a BBQ to toys, books, games...I could go on. There was not one thing we thought "oh we could do with that"
The pool deck is the best I have ever seen it is absolutely vast, plenty of room for tables, chairs and loungers, the photos do not do it justice, there is really a lot of space out there. The views are amazing, up and down the canal and over the nature reserve. The sunsets are beautiful from here too and the ceiling fan makes lovely evenings sitting out on the deck, watching the sun go down and seeing and hearing the extensive wildlife wandering around. The most noise you will hear is the old golf cart trundling over the bridge.The villa has a well equipped garage too, with 4 adult bikes which we did use to cycle around Rotunda West, beach equipment including chairs and umbrellas and cool boxes. I really cannot recommend the villa enough. The area itself has an abundance of beaches that are all empty, white sand and plenty of shells, quiet roads and really really friendly locals. This is a holiday away from the hustle and bustle and a way of seeing the real Florida, very different from Orlando and all I can say is very much for the better, you have to really experience it to appreciate it. Derek and his wife do everything possible to make sure your stay in their amazing home is as enjoyable as possible it has been a pleasure and we cannot wait to visit again.

UNFORTUNATELY (Hope that got your attention) there is nothing else we can add to the fabulous reviews already given here. Derek is a truly top bloke, who goes out of his way to ensure you are at ease from the moment you place your booking. If you have never gone DIY before then Derek really is the font of all knowledge to ensure you feel comfortable with every aspect of your holiday. Communication was absolutely first class. We were anxious to ensure that we got our first Christmas and New Year out of the UK off to a good start- and we did. The Villa is in a fantastic location on Rotonda, not overlooked and in a very quiet spot. Blue Heron and Egret pass by daily, and birds of prey wheel lazily overhead. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived, and of course the kids loved the large pool. It's often the little things that make a big difference - the four beach chairs and insulated wheeled picnic box in the garage got lots of use at the local beaches which really are white sand heaven into shallow warm Gulf waters. Derek had even put up a Christmas tree and door garland in preparation for our arrival! For those wishing to travel further afield then St Pete's, Tampa, Sarasota, Boca Grande, Port Charlotte and Fort Myers are all easily reached by car. We have stayed many times in Florida Villa accommodation and this is by far the best. If you are looking for a truly relaxing beach holiday then you will not be disappointed. Everything from Waffle House to five star restaurant dining can be had within 30 minutes drive. Boca Grande is a gastronomic delight - be sure to visit Loose Caboose (lunchtime) and Pink Elephant (Casual but top class evening dining).
Finally, a very personal thanks to Derek and Wendy for allowing us to share their Florida dream, even if it was for only two weeks. The memories will be with us for life and we hope to return. Many thanks.

Massive thanks to you, Derek and Wendy, for allowing us to share your 'home from home' villa. This was our second visit to Englewood but first to this villa. Derek ensured excellent communication prior to and during the booking process and provided lots of excellent information relating to the area/places to visit/eat prior to our arrival. We definitely felt confident with our booking of a 'dibb villa' but also very quickly picked up on Derek's passion for his villa, his love of wildlife and the fabulous area we would be re visiting. The villa was extremely clean on our arrival (shame it didn't stay that way long once we moved in!) and was very well equipped for our stay. Kitchen was well equipped, especially for longer hires when maybe you would cook more than we did. Garage had lots of beach chairs etc for a day chilling. The villa layout lends itself to a fabulous family home and one that two families sharing would not feel over crowded. The pool area and outlook is most definitely the highlight of renting this villa and the main reason we selected this villa for hire. The pool deck is the biggest we have ever rented in Florida but with the outlook over the canals and no properties to the west of the villa as its a nature reserve, gives the villa a real peaceful feel and without a doubt is the best feature of the Villa. There was an abundance of wildlife to look at whilst relaxing on the very comfortable pool furniture. It was so relaxing after the busy days we had had in Orlando. The villa has a folder with local information in it which can assist you plan your holiday. The beaches are so clean with white sand and blue sky. Gasparilla Island was fabulous especially when swimming in the sea, 3 manatees swam by fairly close to shore which was unexpected but an absolute bonus especially for the kids to witness. Local restaurants were great and lots to choose from although a couple of restaurants that we wanted to go to had closed for refurb as late sept/early oct is their quieter time prior to the 'snow birds' arriving for winter in the sun, there was still lots of choice for us though. Derek was also in contact with us throughout our stay to ensure everything was okay, which was a lovely gesture, we had no need to contact the management company for anything but we were encouraged to if we had any issues.
We would not hesitate to re book Derek's villa if we are fortunate to return to Florida again and could guarantee if you enjoy peace and quiet and wildlife you will not be disappointed.
Thanks Derek and Wendy for allowing to share your gorgeous home in paradise.
