Guestbook comments from the owner

Gulf Tranquillity is a spacious, comfortable and well equipped pool house in a quiet residential area 15 minutes from Englewood beach. We really enjoyed a quiet, relaxing week after a full-on 9 days in Orlando, experiencing the theme parks!



The villa is very clean and catered for our every need. As a family of 5, we found the villa easily accommodated us with room to spare! The pool was such a draw for all of us that it was quite hard to pull ourselves away some days! The insect screen over the pool and lanai meant that we could enjoy our evenings outside without being bitten to pieces!



We can recommend Boca Grande beach which is about 30 minutes drive; lovely sand and very quiet. There are a number of restaurants within about 20 minutes drive; we went to Farlow's on the Water one evening and we would thoroughly recommend the ribs!



All in all, a perfect villa for a relaxing and quiet holiday.

Perfect

My wife and I come from Denmark and have stayed several times in Florida for a golf vacation. The house this time was far the best. Location is good and the house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. And everythig clean and in good condistion. It was easy to communicate with the owner and his local representative who takes care of the house was very service minded. We enjoyed our vacation and will for sure come back next year. We can for sure recommend the house, especially if you play golf. We also liked the bicycles and if the house also had golfsets, you could rent, we could't ask for more.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed eight glorious weeks in David and Lynne's lovely house. It was very comfortable in every respect and very well equipped. Each day we marveled at the wildlife on the canal behind the house while we rested in the sun or in the pool. Ospreys, turtles, red cardinals, mockingbirds, ibis, herons, egrets were just some of the wonders we could spot nearly every day. The area is welcoming and quiet.

All in all, we highly recommend this house for a great relaxing holiday.
