About the owner: Hello!, we are born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. Love nature, boating, classic cars, typical Wisconsin things like: beer, brats, sausage, cheese, cheese curds and watching the Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers! We love the outdoors and being on the water. Feel free to call me anytime, I would be happy to help you!
We purchased this villa in 2016
Why this property? We have always loved to vacation in Florida. We discovered Rotonda when we drove up from Fort Myers to visit a friend- and never wanted to go back to the traffic nightmare of Fort Myers. Loved how quiet and low key Rotonda was. This was the place to be! Our house is in a very quiet newer area. White marsh and a golf course behind the house. Beautiful houses on this street. We purchased the house just by 5 pictures. We loved the very open floor plan & large living room with one side being all glass sliding doors inviting the outside in, the split floor plan for privacy, and the bigger pool area. We also liked the mix of carpet and tile to make it feel homey!! Now, we have a beautiful clean place to stay when we come.

Guestbook comments from the host:
We just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at your home. Your property management team deserves credit too. To be honest there wasn’t a single thing that was not to our liking or misrepresented in any way; even the pool temperature was right on. While it was pretty warm in Florida, it was still less than all of the northeast US/Canada, so I guess we picked a good time slot. Hopefully we can stay longer next time. Thanks again, Rob and Family.
We did last minute reservation with Judy just two days before departure to Florida. Everything worked exactly like we were hoping. Judy was very helpful and after 15 minutes phone conversation with her, it started to feel that there is nothing to worry about.
Villa Frankonia was beautiful and located in peaceful area far away from crowded tourist areas.
There is lot of breathtaking nature and beaches just 30 min drive from Rotonda West. Our favorite spots were Stump Pass Beach State Park and Boca Grande. Manasota Key beaches are also awesome for shark tooth digging :)
Villa itself was more than we expected. Everything was so clean and in so good shape that it felt more like real home. Every bed room and lanai has TV and there is adjustable bed in master bed room. Our children enjoyed a lot nice pool in the lanai. Actually it was the first thing that came in our children's mind when we asked what was the best thing to do in Florida.
Neighborhood was very quiet when we were spending our Thanksgiving vacation 2017. My whole family enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere at villa after beach days.
I think that Villa Frankonia might offer one of the best price/quality relationship in south west Florida for the people who wants to enjoy the exotic nature and non-crowded, but beautiful beaches.
I can sincerely recommend this vacation rental.
My husband and I just returned from a fabulous vacation, staying at this lovely home! We have rented properties for many years and we have never stayed in a place as well equipped and as comfortable as this home. The entire experience was terrific. From the time we initiated the request to rent, until the time we left the property, the owner Judy could not have been more accommodating. She really made everything effortless for us, answering questions in a quick and friendly manner. The house is appointed so nicely, you truly feel like you are home. We loved the open floor plan, decorations, the furniture and all the extras like the big screen TV, the lovely pool, tv in the lanai, bikes etc., were just ideal! Having had bad experiences in the past, my husband and I jokingly said at the beginning of our visit, "lets make a list of what's wrong with the place"; like what's missing, is the place clean, is the place what it was advertised to be............WELL needless to say we don't have a deficiency list for this property! It was just PERFECT!!! Highly recommend for a couple or family! Thanks Judy!
Left the Midwest to get a taste of paradise and could not have been happier with our stay at this beautiful home, Villa Frankonia. The plan was to rest our heads at night and check out the surrounding area during the day, but upon entering the home, the plans changed and most of the time was spent on the property and here's why:
This home is very open, spacious and inviting. The home was super clean and decorated with warm, soothing colors accented with furniture that is comfortable and inviting. Everything we needed was available from kitchen accessories & spices to games, movies, coolers, beach chairs and bikes.
The lanai & pool was our location of choice! Crystal clear, warm water and a surrounding deck that was spotless. There's a great combination of sun and shade to accommodate the most avid sun lover or protect those who prefer to stay covered. The added bonuses of a ceiling fan, light AND TV under the covered area of the lanai provided all day & night entertainment and comfort. We loved the super private back yard with lots of birds! The neighborhood was very nice and quiet, great for walking and biking. Beautiful homes. Hardly any traffic. We felt super safe.
If we had any questions the property manager Mary was super helpful and so were the owners. We have stayed at many homes over the years, this one rates one of the best. Thanks for a great relaxing vacation, can't wait to come back!!
Very clean, very pretty and convenient to our golf tournament. We will be back 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!
Beautiful and Spacious
Beautiful spacious home! The amenities in this home are not often found in a rental property. A 70 inch TV, an adjustable king bed in the master bedroom, sturdy reclining leather sofas, three bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large heated pool and the natural beauty of a Florida marsh make this retreat truly amazing. Quiet, spacious and clean says it all. We truly felt at home and welcomed. Joe and Lynette May-June 2022

Beautiful, Relaxing, Everything You Need to Have a Great Time Away
Lovely home in a beautiful neighborhood! The layout of the home is perfect for all types of families! The home was spacious, and cheerfully decorated and had everything one needed to have a great Florida Beach Vacation! The Kitchen was completely stocked with tons of pots and pans, as well as other appliances to make anything your heart desires. The garage had all the beach paraphernalia one could want to include floaties, umbrellas, coolers, beach chairs and extra-large beach towels! Not to mention bicycles to enjoy paddling around the neighborhood! After a day at the beach, it was wonderful to come back to the house and enjoy the very comfortable heated pool. We most often cooked in, but there is a good variety of restaurants relatively close for those who wish to go out. The local beaches are gorgeous, and we spent a lot of time on Gasparilla Island - roughly a 50 min. drive from the house. There are several beaches to go to without going that far. The area has something for everybody! Lastly, I would like to mention the owner, Judy. Communication with her was excellent. She answered all of my questions just about instantly, and she was very easy to work with. She spent time telling me about several places and restaurants in the area; it was easy to see she really wanted my family and I to enjoy our time in Rotunda West. I highly recommend working with her and renting one of her amazing Florida homes!

This home is so clean and comfortable! The communication with the owner and management was clear and quick. The location is nice and quiet, yet close to many fun beaches and other activities to explore. The home is equipped with everything needed and is in great condition. The pool is such a bonus! We look forward to visiting again!

Wonderful place to visit!
We absolutely loved our last-minute week-long stay in Rotunda West! Judy was fantastic to work with every step of the way. She had helpful recommendations on the best beaches, restaurants and even shared tips on the best times of day to visit the beach, to minimize the chances of sunburn. Upon arrival, we found the house to be absolutely spotless. We loved the layout - perfect for families or groups of friends. The beds were so comfortable and the sheets were buttery soft. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We’ll be back!

Best place to stay!

Perfect alternative to a hotel/condo!
This house was wonderful! Very clean and everything as promised. We have been to Florida a couple times vacationing before and have always stayed in either a hotel or condo. With 2 teenagers, it was so nice for everyone to have their own bedroom and their own bathroom! It was great to have a pool to swim in each night after being at the beach and site seeing during the day! Judy is so nice and easy to work with!! Wonderful neighborhood as well! We will definitely book again.

Excellent home AND owner!
From before our arrival things were great! Judy was responsive in all communication and worked with us getting arrangements set. And the pictures did not do the home justice! It was more spacious than expected and all amenities were as listed. Great home, great neighborhood, and great owner. What more can you say? We definitely plan to return!

Girls Florida Getaway
I met my best friends from Duluth, MN for a Girls Getaway!! The property was definitely much more than I expected. The description said that they provide everything, just bring your clothes and some food. They were absolutely right. We arrived in the dark but walking in the house was warm and inviting. We had lots of choices as to where to sleep and once we were settled we went out to the pool and just relaxed. After a good nights sleep in comfortable beds we were pleasantly surprised to see all of the amenities we had not seen in the dark. the kitchen was fully stocked with all your cooking needs. A full size washer and dryer were available and then we made it out to the garage where there was bicycles, beach supplies, pool toys, and golf clubs. So after enjoying a relaxed morning by the private pool with a marsh behind us for more privacy,we went site seeing and there is plenty to see around the area. You are just minutes away from several beaches, small towns with lots of shopping, good restaurants with of course lots of sea food. Everyone was very friendly. The homeowners and their staff went above and beyond to make our stay the best experience!!! Of course spending time with my friends was the most important thing for me, doing so in such a nice environment made it even more special. We all plan to take another trip there as soon as we can.

Perfect Vacation Home
Our family spent 2 weeks over the holidays at Villa Frankonia and loved it. The home was fully equipped right down to the beach chairs and bikes. It is a beautiful home, very comfortable, in immaculate condition that suited our family perfectly. The 3 bathrooms were definitely a plus as was the heat with 3 people having to work from home it afforded us privacy and convenience. The owner was very accommodating with our special requests and always quick to respond to our calls. Great quiet neighborhood!
