Barrier Islands: There are several offshore keys to explore, some accessible by road bridge; others only by boat. Perhaps one of the most attractive and quaint get-away keys to visit by road is Boca Grande Island. Approx. 20 minutes easy drive from Rotonda the island is reached via a toll bridge from the mainland. Visitors to the key will drive along a road surrounded on both sides by shimmering waters and white sands and millionaires Condo's. There is a wonderful public beach on the key (with a Caribbean feel to it) called Boca Grande. Every year between April and June, Boca Grande Pass fills with thousands of Tarpon fish churning the water all around the boats. Major fishing tournaments are held here, each year. In Boca Grande, the locals use golf carts as a major form of transport and can be easily hired on a daily basis. If you want to experience total isolation and a real unspoilt barrier island, visit Cayo Costa (itself a state park) located south of Boca Grande accessible only by boat.
Golf: Rotonda has 72 Holes to choose from that challenge all skill levels. Rotonda has been awarded a 'Beginner Friendly Certification' from the National Golf Course Owners Association as well as the Charlotte Sun Herald's Reader's choice award for being the best course in Charlotte County. Come on out and give us a visit. The weather is great. The courses are great. All in your own backyard. That's exactly how Rotonda Golf & Country Club's three courses were planned. The Hills. The Palms. The Links. Three emeralds in a spectacular setting bathed by gulf breezes. Challenging, well maintained fairways that provide a new golfing experience with every round. Two great clubhouses with restaurants and lounges are available. Long Marsh Golf Club is the newest course to open in Rotonda. Renowned golf course architect, Ted McAnlis, has produced a championship course that is very different from anything you’ll ever play in the area. Situated on over 300 acres, the rolling terrain hints at a links-type layout and an abundance of stately oaks and native pines and palm frame many holes. Natural waste bunkers and marshes provide a challenge for golfers, as well as a haven for a variety of wildlife. Measuring 7200 yards from the tips, the course can be daunting, but four sets of tees, a minimal use of bunkers and strategically placed mounding provide a friendly game for all levels.English football available on TV - no need to miss those important games!
I moved to Florida from Jersey, Channel Islands in 2004, finally fulfilling a lifelong dream. I searched long and hard to find the ideal piece of land on which to build a dream home. I eventually settled upon a beautiful, tranquil site on Rotonda and set about creating the perfect home. Due to Visa restrictions - and despite fighting to stay - I was eventually obliged to return to the U.K. and, now, with much regret, offer up this property for rental.
Tina Le Main purchased this villa in 2004
The villa was built as a dream home in 2004. Sadly, due to visa restrictions, I was unable to continue living in Florida and had to return home in 2009. It is a property that has had much love and care lavished upon it and one that I was very sad to leave.
Tranquil, quiet, stunning views, relaxing environment. Glorious Florida weather and stunningly beautiful sunsets. The perfect place to 'get away from it all'.
My wife and I have been wintering in Rotonda for 10 years and have always appreciated the villas we have stayed in. Tina's home sets a new standard of unmatched excellence. We expect rental Villas to be clean, functional and well appointed. Tina's villa is extrordinary. The location is ideal with sun on the pool deck all day. It is quiet and it is private. It is extremely well layed out for the two of us and if family or friends visit over night they can enjoy their own privacy in a separate wing of the home. The furnishings are more than comfortable and the kitchen is equipped with virtually everything you could imagine or want whatever your culinary skills might require.
It is clear Tina takes a great deal of pride in the ownership of her home and it shows. We hope to make this our winter destination for many years to come.
Probably the best villa we have been lucky enough to stay in throughout all of our stays in Florida.
All day sunshine, a great outlook over the freshwater canal, and a fantastic array of wildlife, in addition to a superbly equipped and lavishly presented villa make this a very special place to stay. We should not really be sharing this jewel with anybody - or we will not get a chance to go back!
Thank you Tina
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful well equipped villa. Very stylish and comfortable. Everything we could possibly need was there for us.
The time passed so quickly, we didn't want to go home. We definitely would like to come back again. We would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet and peaceful location.
We returned last week from a two and half week stay at this lovely villa. As mentioned previously, the villa is immaculate and very well equipped. Each of the bedrooms are large which was great for my youngest daughter who always complains about having the smallest room! The view from the lanai is breathtaking with an abundance of wildlife and we loved sitting by the pool watching their antics. This is our 4th visit to Rotonda and once again we loved staying in this area, even my 2 teenagers don't want to go anywhere else (hoorah!). Shops, beaches, boating, fishing and restaurants are in an easy driving distance and the towns of Englewood and Port Charlotte are not far away. Tina was quick to reply to all my emails and I would definitely recommend staying in this villa to anyone wanting a superior villa in an amazing position in Rotonda West.
We have stayed on Rotonda for many years now and have stayed in some nice villas but this villa is far superior to any other. Luxurious and comfortable, has everything you could possibly want. It has two wonderful master bedrooms which make a huge difference. The villa is very tastefully furnished, not a typical holiday let.The pool is large, able to swim properly in it. The patio area around the pool gets the sun ALL day long, great for sunbathing with lovely patio furniture. Surrounding area is full of wildlife, fascinating to watch. Ideal location for local beaches, all of which are wonderful, spoilt for choice. Lots to do, lovely restaurants + great shopping. We have already booked for next year because the villa is getting very booked up, didn't want to miss it!
We stayed in this wonderful villa for 5 days. When I arrived I was stunned by the beauty of the home and the location. The house has every conceivable luxury and comfort. The master bedroom is amazing as is the second double with beautiful views from both. The villa has been very tastefully furnised and is so comfortable to lounge around. The pool is magnificent, with lovely furniture outside and gets the sun all day! The area is also lovely and very quiet, with shops and restaurants within a short drive. I couldn't recommend staying here highly enough.
