Beautiful property, nice location and wonderful pool. We truly enjoyed our stay, the house contained everything that we needed to Relax, Rejuvenate and Rest.

Better than pictured!! Very spacious and literally everything you would want or need is already there! The neighborhood is very quiet and felt so safe for the kids we even rode around the neighborhood on the bicycles that were already at the house…amazing host and beautiful sparkling clean home. We will definitely be back here in the future.

“We wanted a week vacation and to see the area as were considering buying a place in Florida, we loved it. The neighborhood was great and quiet. The house was clean, the amount of towels and amenities available was great the pool and out door area was great the house was very clean. Close to beaches and many stores. We only used one room but the house is big and would be great for a family that’s traveling!” 
“Thank you for hosting us the place was great!”

“Great place to stay. Quiet neighborhood and nice view out the back of the house from the pool. Lots of room for a larger family. The amenities listed are accurate. The house is clean and tidy. I would highly recommend staying there.”

We had the pleasure of recently staying at this property and had a wonderful stay. The house is extremely clean with everything you can think of at your disposal. The pool was also very clean and very warm. The check-in and check- out process was seemless. The communication with the owners was excellent. The community it is located in was extremely nice and away. Manasota Key beaches are located less than a 20 minute drive away.I would 100% recommend this rental to friends and family and would love to stay again in the future.

We truly enjoyed our month at this great home in Rotonda. We were lucky enough to stay the entire month of February and work from this lovely house. It had everything you could think of wanting, ample space for two people to work from different areas during the day, not bother each other’s conference calls, and plenty of bandwidth to accommodate. The kitchen and grill gave us all we needed to cook and have meals there, plenty of storage, dishes, ancillary needs all there, with several coffee options and a teapot. Seating was 4 at the kitchen table and 6 at the outdoor table with fan, which made this area really nice as well. (There is also a great dining table with 6 plus seating area, as seen in pics but we used that as one office :)). The pool was heated well and was plenty warm in the 70-80’s that we experienced during our time there, and we spent lots of hours on this quiet patio and pool area. All things you need for this are included at the home also, plenty of towels, lounge chairs, etc. and an outdoor half bath so you don’t have to walk into the house wet! Really a nice feature. It is also incredibly private with the water and empty lots beyond/behind that. There are bicycles provided and it is easy to ride right from the house. The house is about 8-9 miles, and 15-25 min (depending on time of day and traffic) from the beach and all you need for that is in the garage and house as well, coolers, chairs, umbrellas. The bed in the master was comfy (didn’t use the other 2) and the bathroom was roomy with a nice walk in shower with great water pressure! The family room was also nice for tv when that is wanted, comfy couches and chairs, nice big tv. All in all, we loved our stay here and hope to come back again! Finally, the owner and the people who care for the home were super responsive the whole time, with any questions before booking to welcoming us there and during and after our stay checking in!! Don’t hesitate to book here!

Sunshine Villa was one of the best vacation rentals we have experienced. It was spacious and tastefully decorated throughout. The golf clubs and bicycles were a delightful addition. We especially liked the lakeview behind the house which provided such a quiet and private atmosphere. We would return in a heartbeat. We hope it will be available.

Jolanda’s place is very cozy and great for big family or group of friends. Its not far from the beach and grocery stores. Pool is great, and it was warm enough for us to enjoy in January. Many board games inside the home to enjoy on a rainy day, also bikes which we had no time to enjoy. Overall, the place was clean and nicely decorated. We had a great stay. Thank you!!!


19-12-2020 - 29-12-2020
Jolanda was VERY quick to respond to my questions. We had a great stay and the heated pool and spa were a huge hit with our kids. The house was clean and comfortable. The closest stores/restaurants are about 10 minutes away. The neighborhood the house is located in is very quiet and was a great place for a family vacation.


27-11-2020 - 29-11-2020
“Really nice house, better than expected, extremely well equipped and clean. It has everything you need to go to the beach. We'll come back for sure.” 


24-10-2020 - 26-10-2020
“It was better than I expected. the house is much more beautiful than what you see in photos. Super cozy atmosphere the closest beach is 10 mnts. Thank you, my family and I were more than happy. I definitely want to go back.”

The house is perfect. It has everything you might need, they thought of every single detail of the house. Thanks


31-07-2020 - 04-08-2020
Perfect place for our family of 5! The neighborhood was quiet and close enough to anything we needed. Jolanda was quick to respond with any questions we had. She also gave an excellent list of local tips and recommendations. 10/10 would stay again.


23-07-2020 - 27-07-2020
The house was big, spacious and beautiful and had everything we wanted and needed. The pool was heated and very big with a beautiful, relaxing atmopshere! The neighborhood is very calm and just 12 minutes from the beach. Supermarkets are very close by as well. My family and I needed to relax while going through these times with the pandemic and the house and everything exceeded our expectations!


16-07-2020 - 19-07-2020
The house was exceptional. Clean and cozy while also having everything we needed to enjoy our time there. The kitchen is fully stocked as well as the rooms being comfortable. You can not go wrong with this place!


06-07-2020 - 12-07-2020
Beautiful home! Spotlessly clean, cozy, all the comforts of home!

“This was our first experience with AirBNB. Jolanda was extremely helpful with our short notice and short 4 day weekend stay. She was quick with her responses to our questions. Since there were not any previous reviews, we were a little apprehensive. Now we are privileged to be her first excellent review and highly recommend her house. There are several thoughtful and useful amenities such as bikes, golf clubs ,and everything you would need for a day at the beach with kids. Even the coolers and boogie boards ! The Master bed was most comfortable and plush. Master bath and shower were great also. It was just my wife and I so we did not use the other bedrooms but they were set up for kids or adults. We even noticed some toys for kids. The kitchen was great and had everything needed to get started on your vacation meals. Plenty of service ware and dinnerware. There was also some assorted spices, salt and pepper and oils left in pantry. There was also every type of coffee maker invented. :) The best part of course was the heated pool at your disposal. Great for laps, play or just lounging around. Plenty of chairs and dining table. A gas grill is available also. Every room was as pictured and all furniture was clean and comfortable. Again, we were thoroughly pleased with our stay and would not hesitate to go back again with friends and family. I hope all our future AirBNB reservations go this well. ”

When we arrived in the villa, we were surprised it even looked better than on the pictures. We enjoyed the stay so much and the house and everything was just awesome. Thank you so much for this wonderful holiday!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at the Sunshine Villa in Rotonda West, FL. The owners, Jolanda and Kees, are very friendly and organized which made the entire rental process so enjoyable and easy. The villa is beautifully decorated and well kept. The location was perfect for us because it is just a few short minutes from our favorite beaches. The pool was wonderful! I would highly recommend the Sunshine Villa to my friends and family. We can't wait to return there. Thank you so much, Jolanda and Kees, for sharing your beautiful vacation home with my husband and I.


01-04-2016 - 28-04-2016
This is a beautiful villa. Immaculately clean. Furnished to a high quality, very comfortable with good quality linens. Very well equipped with everything needed for a very enjoyable stay. Jolanda and Kees are very professional throughout the booking process and very quick to respond to any questions. I highly recommend this villa.


05-02-2016 - 01-04-2016
We had a great time.  It was a record breaking year for bird watching, with sandhill cranes (they are over a meter tall) walking around the pool.
Also we saw alligators on many days, and two at a time on several days.  It is still snowing here at home and very cold to boot. Already looking forward to next year.
 


09-04-2015 - 23-04-2015
This is such a peaceful location!
What is your availability like around November? We may need another visit by then and we can't think of anywhere better.

Rotonda 5 - June 28, 2014 Dear Kees & Jolanda, Thank you for letting us rent your home comfortable. It's really all the modern facilities. You really experience that you do everything to make it. Guests to their liking The weather was fantastic. Only the first week, a few thunderstorms and then only sunshine. We made ​​day trips, such as attending a baseball game of the Tampa Bay Rays, an airboat ride with Lake Trafford, a tour and tasting at Rosa Fiorelli Winery, Englewood Beach, and of course plenty of shopping. We are having two fossils and 4 mid twenties, so most outlets and malls within a radius of two hours drive are scoured and we left with many well-filled bags. We enjoyed delicious eating, regular bud or glass of wine on the terrace and a dip in the pool. All in all we have a nice holiday in your lovely home and we love to come back once more. It was awesome! Sincerely, Martin & Marcella Zaira & Ewald Kimberley & Daniel

Immediately upon entering we were surprised by the space of this villa ( both within and around it ) . Moreover, everything was so neat, clean and well organized that we felt at home. We were 3 people , but also for a larger group , there is enough space (max. 6 beds ) . We have not made ​​use of all facilities , but especially the pool, bikes, BBQ and BluRay player ( during one evening with less again) fell by everyone very much appreciated . In terms of the Winn Dixie supermarket is within cycling distance and the slightly more distant 24-hour Wal -Mart is definitely worth it. Also, the beaches near worth it, but a visit to Palm Island is also very recommendable. You can take a boat for 5 Dollar pp to it and if you're lucky , you'll see along the way lots of dolphins and other animals Jolanda and Kees , once again thank you very much for the stay and we were in the area again , we try again come by.

An email from us to let you know that we still really enjoy everything. Monday we went biking on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. Rented bikes and toured both islands all the way through . Very nice, discover new paths so we do and times . Boca Grande , we have also been viewed by bike and have an outlet also made it unsafe. What always strikes us is that we like to go away, but when we come home, we love to experience calm weather and the convenience and coziness of the house.
