Glorious Gulf Villa

We had the great good fortune to enjoy 11 days in this beautiful villa and we had the most wonderful stay.The house is spacious, comfortable and so luxurious. Everything we needed was provided for and more.But the best part for us was the gorgeous deck. We could have spent our whole stay relaxing there enjoying the wildlife and the tranquility of the canal. In fact we had to drag ourselves away to explore the local area.My husband & son really enjoyed the fishing dock and the local alligators paid them a visit each day. At the beach we got to see some dolphins and a manatee. We even encountered turtles crossing the road. My abiding memory will be mornings on the deck listening to and watching the birds.Victoria the owner has gone out of her way to make the reservation process very simple. She also provides lots of information on the local area and top tips for a great holiday.Wed return in a heartbeat. It was a very relaxing, laid back trip in a fantastic home.A big thank you to Victoria & her family for sharing their amazing villa with us!

Absolutely Perfect , Fabulous Villa

We have holidayed in Florida for many years but without doubt Glorious Gulf Villa has provided the best vacation experience ever. Beautifully presented this family friendly villa is in an excellent location with easy access to beaches, shops and restaurants. The Villa is spacious, superbly appointed and spotlessly clean. Fully equipped there is everything you need for a brilliant vacation. The pool and covered lanai are great and the outside fishing deck a welcome bonus. We spent many hours watching the fantastic wildlife, unbelievable to watch Alligators cruising the waterway and we even saw otters this year! Cape Haze pioneer trail is close by and really enjoyed cycling down to Boca Grande (bikes provided by the owners) in the early morning or late evening. Victoria the owner is a pleasure to deal with, extremely professional and all transactions were seamless. Can not emphasise how highly we recommend Glorious Gulf Villa, two blissful weeks.

Wonderful relaxing villa

This Villa is situated in the outer boundary of rotunda circle. The location was very quiet fronted by a canal which was full of fish, alligators and turtles. The lanai was a very relaxing place to listen to the different birds. We had a cardinal that came each day. The pool was very clean. The house is the Florida style which we love for privacy. The inside is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need. Victoria, the owned, was very pleasant to deal with and Mary the property manager was excellent. The area has five golf courses within ten minutes, very close to restaurants , beaches, and shopping. I would recommend this villa.

Everything we expected!

This house is centrally located, well maintained and very comfortable. The pool was very enjoyable as the water temperature was well maintained and a great size. The bedrooms were roomy with great storage. We had a great time and would come back again.


Great location and a lot of golf courses. Great walking/biking trails. Placida Grill great food. Grocery store nearby. Beaches are close.

What a wonderful holiday.

After a very hectic week doing the Theme Parks in Orlando we were keen for some rest and relaxation on the Gulf Coast.We were so pleased when we arrived to find the villa was exactly what we needed. Nice and spacious for a family of 5 with a good sized pool and wonderful views.We enjoyed eating in and having dinner outside by the pool but we also enjoyed trying different local restaurants. To keep the kids amused we found the Tikki bar on Englewood beach worked well as they could play games outside and we could listen to live music. We all enjoyed hunting for sharks teeth on the beach.The local supermarket is just a short drive away and it has everything you need we noticed a chemist and a dentist in the same area as well as various takeaway restaurants.We only needed to speak to the Management Lady once whos there to help with any questions but it was nice to know we could reach out to someone locally if we needed to.We would love to return one day and see more of what the area offers as we ran out of time.

Gloria Gulf Villa

It was really difficult deciding where to stay as all the villas online looked very similar and we had never done a private rental before so we were a bit nervous. We decided on Glorious Gulf Villa as my husband and I enjoy playing golf and this villa was close to lots of different golf courses. He also liked the fact that it had a fishing dock and thought it would be fun to give fishing a try. The rental price was competitively priced especially as the villa sleeps 6 people.The booking process was very easy and the Owner patiently answered my long list of questions.The photos of the villa online looked impressive and when we arrived we realised the villa was just as described and it certainly did not disappoint seeing it for real. It was larger than we had imagined and we couldnt believe the amount the wildlife that we spotted in the garden and by the waterway. We took so many photos.We were spoilt with the choice of golf courses we tried a different one every day and some of them have nice Club Houses to drink at afterwards.We liked taking the Cape Haze trial which is about 5 minutes away from the villa where you can explore it all the way down the Gulf. We walked but lots of people were on bikes.Overall we had a really relaxing and comfortable stay and it certainly ticked all our boxes.
