I am English, my wife American. We live in the UK, married for nearly 30 years we have two grown up daughters. One is training to be a doctor the other a lawyer. So they should both be able to take care of all our needs as we grow older!! We visit family in Florida regularly and now own our own piece of it in Rotonda. I jog to keep fit, my wife shops! We just love it here, not just the sun, but the whole area is unique, unspoilt and special. You will have the most relaxing, 'get away from it all', fun time here!
mike field purchased this villa in 2008
We just fell in love with this area of SW Florida! Its non commercialised, not spoilt, a real taste still of local community Florida. Real people still live here! Beaches are fabulous!Uncrowded white sand with the most incredible sunsets over the gulf. When we decided to buy here we wanted not just a vacation villa, but a home situated in the very best area of Rotonda and in the perfect position. Secluded and not overlooked, south facing on the waterway. Villa is equipped the very highest standard, besides it is our home!
For me 10 minutes to the beach! for my wife 10 minutes to shopping! its away from it all yet has all you need to hand. Walking, cycling or we like to jog, around Rotonda, spotting wildlife as we go. The Villa backing on to waterway means you can sunbathe, relax and dine on the pation with a glass of somehing special as the sun sets! or why not rise early to see it glow over the water!
Where else can you relax and watch the local wildlife play? Herons rest on the fishing boat dock, otters play and fish for supper, Cranes, birds of all varieites. Spot the Alligators as they glide by, stopping by.
We are in our second week here at Herons rest and have totally enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and facilities provided. .
We have enjoyed the fishing and have caught at least 3 every day, mainly catfish, but also the gar fishes. The boys have loved it. I will post pictures when I return to the uk.
The wildlife is fantastic. We have had a visitor most mornings and evenings who the boys have named Scooby. He/she is a huge Great Blue Heron who comes up to the lanai and stares at us until we bring food. It loves weeners, bread and chicken and follows us down to the dock so that it can watch us fish and eat at the same time.
If we come back again we will certainly stay here again. And just as I am about to send this mail we see loads of fireflies dancing.
