Overview

Rotonda West Villa Rental Photos and Description

Elegant 3 bed, 2 bath home on one level overlooking a lush tropical backdrop

A comfortable home, situated in the exclusive deed restricted golfing community of Rotonda West; a beautiful natural habitat, interspersed with lakes, canals and golf courses. Located on Florida's magnificent south west gulf coast.

Whispering Palms is elegantly furnished and offers guests both peace and seclusion; it is ideal for families, couples or snowbirds seeking an escape from today’s hectic lifestyle.

As you enter through the double doors, the villa flows with a cleverly designed open floor plan which is ideal for vacation living. The fully equipped kitchen is open plan to the family room so everyone can be together but for that quiet time there is the formal living room which offers a quiet area away from the melee of family or friends.

The formal dining room offers seating for six but for more casual dining the breakfast nook overlooks the pool, the garden and the lush tropical habitat.

The Master Suite is located on one side of our home and opens onto the pool deck for an early morning swim or a coffee as the world awakens. Offering a kingsize pillow-top bed, sheer bliss, a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with dual vanities and Roman shower.

There are two further guest bedrooms one offering a queen size bed and the third with two twin beds.

The Roman style pool has a south west aspect and overlooks a lush tropical backdrop of Palms, Firs and bushes, a haven for wild life, from Armadillos, Raccoons, Foxes to Squirrels and if lucky our local Bob Cat, together with a myriad of birds. Furnished with a dining table for six, chairs, side tables, sun loungers and a gas barbecue for Al Fresco dining whilst enjoying the stunning Florida sun sets and night skies.

Miles of un spoilt coastline with white sandy beaches and turquoise seas are a short drive away; skirted by many barrier islands, such as Don Pedro, where as our guests you have beach rights. Gasparilla Island, with it's quaint town of Boca Grande or Cayo Costo, a Florida State Park.

The Cape Haze peninsular is easily accessible but remote enough to attract abundant wildlife, birds, dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, Bobcats, raccoons, foxes and plenty of alligators all native to south west Florida. From sailing and boating, fishing, golf, fine and casual dining, shopping to the arts there is something for everyone, young and old alike.

We want you to have the perfect stay and we hope we have thought of everything.

So just bring yourselves, some clothes and enjoy all this magnificent home has to offer.

About Lynne Brooks

Bob and I, together with our son Lawrence live in Surrey approximately 25 miles south west of London.

Lawrence has just graduated from Central St Martins where he is was studying womenswear design.

Bob is based at Heathrow where he has been for 32 years.

Lynne Brooks purchased this villa in 2004

Why Lynne Brooks chose Rotonda West

We chose to build in Rotonda West due to the peace and beauty of this natural habitat and it's proximity to the stunning coastline of south west Florida.

We hope one day to spend more time in Florida once we are retired but in the interim we love to share Whispering Palms with you our great guests.

What makes this villa unique

After choosing a lot which would offer, a stunning backdrop and wonderful sunsets we next chose a house design which would offer a floor plan conducive to vacation living. We feel we achieved this and are very proud of our villa in Florida and have received many compliments from previous guests.

Excellent Stay at Rotonda West Whispering Palms

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay at Whispering Palms was amazing. First, we can simply say that this is the cleanest, most functional, and orderly home we have rented over the many years of renting vacation properties. Our correspondence with the owners and property manager was excellent throughout the rental process and during our stay.

The house is situated on a very nice street and its location is about the best you can have in Rotonda West, with beautiful green foliage for privacy in the rear and very nice neighbors. We enjoyed many of our meals in the kitchen nook area, looking out to the lanai and pool and the interesting wildlife beyond the back yard. The lanai and covered pool area are fantastic; we cooked out on the grille several days and the heated pool got a workout daily as well as many evenings. All of the furnishings, including the linens and towels are top rate, with all the essentials provided and many extra amenities that translate into a very comfortable home.

There are sand rakes in the garage to do some efficient shark tooth hunting at the beaches in Englewood and Venice. And we found the golf courses in Rotonda very convenient, reasonably priced (good afternoon rates), with excellent conditions and friendly staff.

We would recommend this home and would stay here again without question.

Our appreciation to Lynne and Bob for thinking of everything and sharing their home with us. It’s clear you take great pride and ownership of your property and we couldn’t have spent a more relaxed and comfortable two weeks in Rotonda. Cheers!

For the golfer there are numerous courses in the area including five on Rotonda and these are The Links, The Palms and The Hills forming the Rotonda Golf and Country Club. Long Marsh part of the Lemon Bay Golf Club and Pinemoor West Golf Club,

As our guests you have beach rights on the beautiful Don Pedro Island, which is part of an extensive chain of barrier islands extending along the Gulf Coast of Florida. Between Knight Island and Little Gasparilla Island, Don Pedro is accessible only by private boat or ferry. Cars are allowed on the island but most people use golf carts to get around. Boaters can tie up at the dock on the bay side of the island, which is lined with mangroves. You may be lucky enough to see endangered animals such as West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, bald eagles, and American oystercatchers. Sea Turtle nesting season is from May to September when you are asked to exercise caution and not disturb the nesting sites; guided walks and educational talks are available by park rangers. Don Pedro is located off the coast of Cape Haze about three miles south of Rotonda West.

For the baseball fan, Port Charlotte stadium is 8 minutes drive from Whispering Palms and February through March the Tampa Bay Rays hold their spring training games here. For visitors outside these months the local team The Stone Crabs play all year and are well worth a visit.

The quiet backwaters of Lemon Bay offer great Bluewater Trails for Kayaking and even the novice will find these waters warm, clear and safe.

This is old world Florida at its best, discover the unspoiled charms of Boca Grande, Cape Haze, Manasota Key and Gasparilla Island.
