Enjoy a vacation in this open and airy pool home on a freshwater canal, with it's own dock, where it is very peaceful, with an abundance of wildlife, including many different birds, including heron wading along the banks of the canal. The house has everything you will need for your vacation. A great room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, Laundry room, Split Bedroom floor plan, with master bedroom on the opposite side of the home from the two guest rooms. There are five ceiling fans and vaulted ceilings, also air conditioning. The heated pool is caged and has a large lanai area around it. There are lots of beaches in the area within 10 to 30 minutes drive away. Within 15 minutes drive is the beautiful Boca Grande, a must to see. Other beaches include Placida, Englewood, Manasota Key. If golf is your thing there are four 18 hole golf courses in Rotonda. If you like cycling there are bikes in the garage.
Because it is in a very quiet residential area, if you sit out in the lanai all you can hear are the birds, very peaceful.
There are numerous golf courses on Rotonda West, also plenty of others around the area.
You can take opportunity to ride our bikes around the local roads, which are very quiet and safe to ride on.
The only reason this is not a 5 is because a couple of minor things that were not working in the house. Nothing major. The house actually looks better in person than in the picture. Everything was just as represented, with some extras, like bikes and sun lounges, to name a few. The yard was lush and green, not as in the picture. Clean, well kept and the pool was exceptional for our needs! Our host owners were most congenial, very easy to work with and quick to respond. It was very, very nice working with them. The villa is located in a quiet neighborhood within close proximity to grocery stores, attractions, beaches and many, many very good restaurants. Nice neighbors, lots to do and places to go, coupled with a beautiful villa on a canal with a dock, fruit bearing trees in the yard and exceptional owners, not to mention the weather...who could ask for more. We have already booked it for a month again next year!
The pictures do not do this home justice. You are greeted with a bright open expanse with a view of the pool and canal beyond when you open the front door. The home is clean and well equipped ( we always bring pans, knives etc. with us but that is not necessary here as there is a good supply of decent kitchen ware) the Orange and grapefruit trees in the yard provide an abundance of delicious eating. Keep the bird feeder filled - many different species visit and owners have provided an identification guide. The owners guide book is very complete - restaurants, attractions, churches, medical care etc. outlined with comments to help you choose your activities. The owners are friendly; it was a pleasure to rent from them. We recommend this lovely home .
The pictures do not do this home justice. This home is bright and welcoming as soon as open the door. The home was clean and very well equipped ( we always bring several pots, utensils etc with us but that was not necessary here) the Orange and grapefruit trees kept us supplied with fresh fruit. If you keep the bird feeder filled, you will be entertained by the many different species and owners have provided and identification guide as not all birds were ones we were familiar with. Owners guide to restaurants and attractions very helpful for those visiting for the first time. There is no internet but we did get used to this - many places in the area have open access. The owners are a pleasure to work with. We had a relaxing month and would highly recommend this villa to others
