My husband and I had the opportunity to rent this vacation home to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. When we arrived we found a home away from home that was complete with everything we needed for a relaxing time. The house can accommodate 8 comfortably and is furnished extremely well. We absolutely loved that the house was also equipped with multiple TVs so we could catch our favorite TV shows and the Wisconsin Badger football game! The owner, Judy, also has everything you need for visits to the beach -- which we thoroughly enjoyed. While there are several beaches nearby, we recommend taking the short 30-minute trek north to Siesta Beach. You will be absolutely wowed by the sand. In addition, the property manager was available to assist with all of our needs at this vacation home. Can't make it to the beach...then lounge in the pool. It was so relaxing! There are also a number of fun bar/restaurants and grocery shopping all within 10 minutes. We can't wait to make another visit!

We were fortunate to find a vacation home rental just before labor day. Our family needed a vacation before the school year got into full swing and we could not have found a better spot!! The home is well appointed and the local manager is spot on! I travel often with my children and we have experienced hospitality in all varieties but this experience is near the top of our list. Both the owner and property manager give great attention to detail to be sure your vacation is perfect! My nephews and children enjoyed the pool that was complete with pool toys. To make it even better for us coming from Wisconsin, there is a direct flight from Rockford to Punta Gorda which makes traveling with little ones very easy. Our next get away to Florida will be spend at this house!

I needed to get my family, which included 2 children with autism and 2 dogs, out of the path of a cat 4 hurricane asap. The owner, Judy, was so helpful (even though it was last minute and late at night). We arrived at a lovely home (with a great neighbor across the street) and it was perfect. We had to leave the following morning to get home BUT I wish we could have stayed and I will definitely look no further when heading to the west coast. Thank you so much for being so accommodating.

What a wonderful vacation home ! The house was spotless and wonderfully stocked with everything you need. We have rented many vacation homes and have never walked into a home with everything we need to make our vacation relaxing and enjoyable. Our sons enjoyed the pool daily the short drive to the beaches was wonderful. Loved that chairs, umbrellas and beach towels were provided. Everything was in working order and great condition. Would definitely recommend this house!

Our family loved staying here for some R&R.....the home was quiet, roomy, with beautiful decor! The rest and peacefulness was just what we needed! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home! Judy was also great to work with! She was able to accommodate us at the last minute and was quick to respond to messages! Thanks again!

This home was exactly what the description and reviews said it was. It was beautiful! Very spacious and plenty of room for me and my family. We had so much fun in the pool, as well as fishing nearby. Judy was amazing and answered all of my questions promptly. She was a pleasure to work with!! Walmart and Winn Dixie were local; not far away at all. The beaches were amazing!!! Boca Grande was very much worth the toll fee! Gorgeous!! 😊 We will definitely be back in the future! We're already discussing when the next vacation will be! I couldn't say enough great things about this home and the owners and property manager. They were all wonderful to work with and we enjoyed every moment of our stay! It was amazing!!
I fell in love with the venue as soon as I saw it online and when we arrived it looked exactly like it does on this site. It is spacious and decorated beautifully and also had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and more! We have a 1 year old and having the pack and play as well as highchair really reduced the amount of luggage we had to bring. The house was fully stocked to tend to our needs, and there was more than enough room for all 6 of us! The outside porch was perfect for relaxing, grilling out, and swimming in the heated pool. The owners were extremely informative and a phone call away at all times making sure our experience was perfect, as well as very sweet. I plan on staying in touch and making my stay here an annual tradition. We have family in the area and they have the owners numbers for when other come to visit.

This was easily the best vacation get-away I have ever been on, and I fell in love with the venue as soon as I saw it online. Not only is it decorated beautifully, but it had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and more! The house was fully stocked to tend to our needs, and there was more than enough room for all 6 of us! The neighborhood is tucked away on the outside of town, making it peaceful and secure, with the beaches, gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores, and almost everything else being less than 15 minutes away! The outside porch was perfect for relaxing, grilling out, and swimming in the heated pool, which was great during all times of the day. Even the outside landscaping and backyard view was beautiful. The owners were extremely informative and a phone call away at all times making sure our experience was perfect. Not to mention some of the sweetest people I have ever met. I plan on staying in touch with them and making my stay here an annual tradition ☺ If you’re looking for a place in this area, I definitely recommend it!!

SO thrilled with the home, the area, etc. I will DEFINITELY be back! The home is close to the area beaches, shopping, site seeing and the attractions that the area has to offer (ie: para-sailing, jet skis, scooters, etc) House was immaculate and offered everything you need down to towels, cookware, grill, cooking utensils, etc. Owners were very easy to communicate with and reach during the rental process. If your looking for an amazing place to stay with all the comforts of home and MORE...this is your place!!!
This was the perfect stay for our vacation. We went on a family vacation and the house was wonderful. There was a room for each of us as well as a bathroom! This definitely helped with a few girls in the family. The neighborhood was very peaceful. We never once had an issue with the home. The pool was always warm for those lazy days. However, the beach was 15 minutes away and grocery stores and restaurants are even closer. When we did have a question, Judy responded right away. We were very pleased with our stay overall!

Ally H,

The owners of this property really know how to make you feel comfortable when your on vacation. There are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable of this area! The rental is very clean and well furnished. I really enjoyed my stay at this property. It is close to the beaches as well as town. It also has a pool which was very useful when you don't want to swim in the Gulf. Everything is near by from grocery stores to shopping centers and amazing restaurants. This is a property I will surely come back to in the future!

Rotonda West is a great spot that is quiet, but close enough to the beaches and restaurants. The house was beautiful, it took our breath away when we first walked in with the open floor plan. The house came with everything one needed! The house was clean and roomy and it was great to spend the days at the beach and have a beautiful house and warm pool to come back to each night. The heated pool was excellent and we loved the shade in the back in the evenings. The street was very quiet and made for a relaxing vacation. Boca Grande is worth the $6 toll. Great little island with super cute shops and good ice cream ;) There are lots of great bars and restaurants to try around the area including Flounders by the beach and Prime time, a awesome steak and seafood restaurant. Any questions that we had we were able to get answered right away by calling Judy directly. The owners were a pleasure to work with! I will certainly be returning to this house next year and for many years after! Cannot say one bad thing about the house or the location!!

We arrived from the frozen north on January 7 to a lovely home with the warm sun bathing the lanai and swimming pool. We were delighted with the cleanliness of the house, with the comfortable furniture, with the well-stocked kitchen, with the laundry, and with all the little touches that the owners obviously considered for our benefit. The bicycles in the garage were an added surprise, and we used them nearly every day on a ten mile bike trail close by. The neighborhood was quiet; neighbors were friendly. We had a lovely view of a marsh from the lanai. The owners employed a management person who responded if we needed something, very quickly and pleasantly I might add. I enthusiastically recommend this house. You won't be disappointed.

Villa Frankonia is an outstanding choice for your Florida Winter vacation.This home is very nicely decorated throughout, and very comfortable and functional with three roomy bedrooms and three bathrooms. The home is well furnished and should have anything you need to make your stay very comfortable and the beautiful pool more enjoyable. The onsite manager, Mary, is very responsive and helpful for any questions or needs. The owners, Steve and Judy, are also very easy to reach if necessary and very concerned that your vacation stay in their home is very memorable. We have been visiting this area for the last four years and it offers great amenities (great golf, fishing and beaches) and many excellent restaurants (Farlow's on Hwy 776, The Pink Elephant in Boca Grande, and the South Beach Restaurant on the southside of Big Gasparilla Island are all very good). If you are looking for a great Florida vacation home, you will love Villa Frankonia. It is a very comfortable and well maintained home.

This house was wonderful. Clean, spacious, well equipped, great location. The pictures really don't do it justice. Its far more beautiful and clean in person. My family had a fantastic week long vacation. we enjoyed mornings at the beach and afternoons by the pool. visited local restaurants on the water and the nearby island. The house had everything we needed for our little ones and everything for the beach. Judy and Mary were both great to work with. Quick to respond, super friendly and so helpful. I highly recommend this vacation home. Would love to return next year!

Villa Frankonia is the perfect getaway for a memorable Florida vacation! The home is very modern, spacious, and nicely appointed; it has everything you will need, from beach gear (including chairs, umbrellas, and coolers) to a large gas grill in the screened in pool patio! Although too numerous to list, some other key features include three very comfortable bedrooms with baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and a great living room with super-nice leather sofas for lounging! Siesta Keys in Sarasota, the #1 US beach in 2017, is 1 hour away, although we preferred local beaches in Engelwood Beach a few minutes from the home. You are minutes from grocery stores, simple grab and go food as well as restaurants. These close comparatively early we learned, so plan ahead! Last but not least, the pool simply awesome, perfect size for any age,along with comfi lounging furniture, wet swimsuit "tree" drying, and a TV if you need additional entertainment. The house is unique as it borders on nature in the back, where you can at the very least hear all the wildlife in the area. FInally, the home is about 35 minutes from the Punta Gorda airport, where we flew in, which makes this escape more perfect yet!

We loved staying here. House was very clean and impeccably decorated. We immediately felt relaxed and right at home. Very nice neighborhood. Friendly community. Judy texted us to make sure everything was good, and Mary checked with us the second day to see if we needed anything. The open concept kept us together as a family but the bedroom set up gave us privacy. We would highly recommend staying here.

Very clean, very pretty and convenient to our golf tournament. We will be back next year.
