Overview

Rotonda Villa Rental Photos and Description

3Bed 2BathVilla Lake/Golf View, DISCOUNTS please inquire...US$ (also accept UK£)

A beautiful villa in a wonderful location, overlooking a wildlife lake and with views towards one of the many local golf courses - in fact it would be difficult to find another villa with a comparable idyllic setting. The open Florida style villa built in 2007 overlooks the pool and superb, peaceful and quiet situation. From the pool at the rear of the villa the lawn slopes down to the lake. Within view is the 5th green of Long Marsh golf course, but not too close to disturb the peace or seclusion.

The wide variety of wildlife including green, little blue and great blue herons, egrets and anhingas, the sight of a bald eagle soaring overhead and the sound or sighting of a gator as the sun sets is the making of memories, something very special. The entire area of Rotonda West is a designated bird sanctuary.

The Villa: Built in 2007, the home has been furnished with great care to offer visitors a very comfortable and enjoyable experience. The villa comprises a spacious and airy ‘Great Room’ with cathedral ceiling and a cozy corner with swivel rockers where board games and reading matter can be found. The kitchen is well equipped for those who enjoy cooking, with breakfast bar and swivel stools allowing integration with the living area. A breakfast nook with slate table and wooden chairs overlooks the pool and terrace. There are three bedrooms (one king, one queen and one fitted with twin beds), master bathroom with a large walk-in shower and separate (his and her) marble vanity units and a second full bathroom with bath and shower. CABLE TV (APPROX 70 CHANNELS) is provided in the Great Room (40inch),master bedroom and the queen bedroom; WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS is also provided.

Private Pool, Lanai & More: Sliding glass patio doors give access to the lanai where a large glass topped patio table and chairs are located for alfresco dining; loungers are available for guests to use. There is a GAS BBQ on the terrace to complete the outdoor living experience (enclosed in the lanai). The pool is equipped with removable SAFETY FENCE that can be installed to prevent access by non-swimmers, affording peace of mind for parents with young children. FIVE BICYCLES for the use of guests and a PING PONG TABLE for that fun-filled evening can be found in the garage (fitted with remote control door opener). There are also 4 SETS of GOLF CLUBS and TENNIS RACKETS available for use.

Activities: Boat charter is available through our friendly local management company who offer other services including transfers to and from local airports and will also provide a breakfast starter pack if required. Rent a boat and explore the intra-coastal waterways to Punta Gorda or north to Venice and Sarasota. Alternatively, charter a boat and skipper and sail out into the Gulf for the excitement of game fishing for marlin or tarpon. Rotonda is an excellent area for cycling with its own pioneer trail and a cycle path that stretches down to Boca Grande. Within the community there are six magnificent golf courses, all open to the public and over 30 courses within a 15mile radius of Rotonda.

Tampa with it's International airport and Bush Gardens is 1½h drive to the north, while Orlando (Disney World, Universal Studios etc), the Everglades and Miami are all within reach (2½h to 3½h). Closer to home are Port Charlotte (15mins), Venice & Punta Gorda (30mins), Sarasota (1h) and Fort Myers (1h).

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5
This Villa has the "WOW" factor, upon our arrival we toured the interior of the home and every room that we walk into both my wife and I said WOW. It is tastefully decorated
and very spacious. This Villa is situated in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood.
It has 6 adult bicycles for personal use which we used on many occasions especially on the pioneer trail close by. Also, it was appreciated that the Villa came wtih beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. to bring to many beautiful beaches nearby. Our favorite was
Gasparilla Island just a few miles away. Caroline is great to deal with and will always
respond to any question or concerns. We had a great time and it certainly was a pleasure
to have stayed in such a wonderful Villa.

So good we stayed again!

  • 5 of 5
When I researched all the properties across Florida for somewhere to stay for a week pre-cruise I could not find one that looked as if it came up to the same standard as the Rantells. We loved this place so much, we came back! (I never do that!) The boys managed a bike ride around Medalist Rd this time before collapsing in a heap (it was a warm week!) and played table tennis too! I snagged a Geocache just by the bridge so everyone was happy!
The location of this villa is perfect for beach, marinas and shopping :)
Spotlessly clean as usual and as ever I want to bring that walk in closet home with me ;)
Thanks again!

The best villa we have stayed in !

  • 5 of 5
This villa had absolutely everything we could have wish for and was impeccably clean and well organised - the whole house felt brand new from the moment we stepped in.
From the well equipped kitchen to the bikes and beach gear there was nothing else we could have wished for.
The location was great for trips to the fantastic local beaches on Gasparilla island and Rotunda itself is a tranquil place that never seems to get busy.
It was a pleasure to deal with Caroline who always replied promptly to our enquiries during the booking process.
The whole family agreed that this villa is head and shoulders above any that we have previously stayed at & look forward to visiting again in the future.

Superb spring break

  • 5 of 5
Best rental villa ever! All started from inquiry, all went smooth professional way pre-holiday (lot's of info before trip). Pricing was also excact and no hidden fees.
Location was perfect for us, close to everything and still wildlife on your backyard lots of different birds,alligators,rabits and turtles amazing. House itself was like new, because it was well-maintained. But what was big supprise to me that somebody has so organised place in rental villa everything has it's own place and all amenities were so that you can use like wi-fi, bikes, grill , pool, coolers, shades and beach chairs. I have seen lot of places were list of amenities are perfect, but most things have something wrong not working, too dirty to use other words junkyard things. We didn't need much help, but we knew owner and manager were both easy to contact. Caroline was replying promptly amaizing thanks!
This put a par to holiday villas, but this place is shining star among common ones.
I'll hope that everybody who rent that villa values that and keep that place in this condition.
So that I will enjoy it in the future also.

15mins from the best beaches at Englewood or Boca Grande or the same time to Charlotte Shopping Malls

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year at the villa and again had a wonderful time. The home is all-inclusive as well as beautiful as are the pool area and views. The owners are very accommodating and responsive. Golfing was abundant as usual. There is much to see and do around Punta Gorda, Venice, Sarasota and Fort Myers. This year we took in a circus, an airboat ride and a fishing trip (had a great fish fry from the catch!) among our usual visits to the local preserves, flea markets, shops and beaches. This area is a pleasant respite from the typical tourist areas. It has all the amenities but with a touch of old Florida. We look forward to a future visit.

Map

Car: necessary

The villa is located in the much sought after and loved Rotonda West on the Cape Haze Peninsula.

Rotonda is a wonderful mix of wildlife greenbelt, canals and golf courses, a very peaceful and lovely area not far from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf – one could not want for a more perfect situation.

Set between Venice, Englewood and Port Charlotte on Florida’s Gulf Coast also helps to make it a great location. There are wide and safe Gulf beaches to the west and the smaller Caribbean style beaches to the south. These pristine white sand beaches have wonderful magical names - Manasota Key, Don Pedro Island, Stump Pass, Palm Island, Sanibel, Gasparilla & Boca Grande to name but a few and every one not to be missed!

The area boasts world class fresh and salt water fishing and an abundance of other water based activities. For those that like to shop there are superb malls and shopping at Port Charlotte, Sarasota and Naples.

Other Activities:

Bird Watching, Wildlife Viewing, Shelling, Baseball Park (Pt Charlotte)

Golf:

Certainly Rotonda West is the golfers’ heaven with 5 golf courses actually in Rotonda. The villa has views towards the 5th green of the Long Marsh Golf Course and there are also many more golf courses to choose from only a short drive away.
