PEACEFUL, WATERSIDE HOME, ELECTRICALLY HEATED PRIVATE POOL & FREE WIFI

Rotonda West House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Living, Dining, Family Rooms

Our lovely home is an beautiful home on Rotonda in established landscaped gardens. We bought our 2nd Rotonda home because we had sold our first home and realised how much we would miss it. We had always wanted a home on water, so Kestrel Meadows became ours!

We fell for Kestrel Meadows because it is light and airy and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. The landscaping is mature and offers great privacy. Inside the house, the formal living area opens directly onto the lanai as does the family room. We love having the two seperate living areas. The dining room is at the front of the house and the very well equipped kitchen and breakfast nook are in the centre of the house.

The master bedroom is huge, also opening onto the lanai and the ensuite bathroom is fantastic! Bedrooms 2 and 3 are a good size for guests. There is also a double garage.

GOLF GALORE!: This is an area referred to as 'Golf's Best Kept Secret' and the home of 5 golf courses on Rotonda alone.

A FISHY TALE!: Everyone hears tales of the great fishing to be had and it's true! You can fish from the waterway behind the house on a catch and release basis. You can fish from piers and from the seashore. You can take a boat trip to go deep sea fishing, or hire a smaller boat to go backwater fishing for Redfish, Snook, Spotted Trout, Ladyfish and others. From mid-April to mid-July, Charlotte Harbor is home to the mighty Tarpon who come here in their thousands. Enjoy a memorable day fishing for this magnificent game fish. Private boats with guides can be arranged

Guestbook comments from the owner
It is so amazing in Kestrel Meadows! The first reason why I liked Kestrel Meadows is because in my school we had four teams “Osprey, Falcon, Merlin and KESTREL! All names are a different species of birds. Guess what team I was in?? KESTREL. Another reason why I like Kestrel Meadows is that when my Mum, Dad and I first entered the house, we thought, oh my gosh, this is huge, it's like a mansion in XXL! Well, that's what I definitely thought, though. What I also thought was have we got the wrong address? I hope not! It's been amazing since the first day we arrived. On about the 3rd or 4th day, Mum spotted an alligator. We (Mum and I) decided to name it Jefferson. Nice, huh? We also saw a lot of anhingas, White Ibis and/or Snowy Egret (still not sure which one it was yesterday) Well, anyway, thank you so much for the lovely stay is Kestrel Meadows! Warm Regards,

A Fabulous Florida Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
I can't praise this beautiful, clean, spacious Rotonda West home enough. We were looking for a peaceful place to relax, soak up the Florida sun and enjoy our own pool. The house was so clean, it felt like a brand new home, decorated very tastefully with all the space we could possibly need. A gorgeous pool, which was perfect to cool down in as the outside temperature was pushing 100 degrees. As well as all the facilities you could need there were bikes and even a fishing rod and beach chairs etc. The location is VERY peaceful, we saw an alligator swimming in the waterway behind us, which was thrilling, we also saw bob cats, armadillos and many birds. Easy drive to a number of beaches where you can find fossil sharks teeth, We also went to see a ball game (Charlotte Stone Crabs) and went to the movies at Port Charlotte.

All in all a wonderful house and base to enjoy this part of Florida and the Gulf Coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful review. It feels as if you really enjoyed a fantastic holiday in this lovely, peaceful part of Florida. We often see the wildlife too, but you were lucky to see Bobcats, they are more often seen at night, but they are wonderful. When I saw my first one, I was suprised because I thought it was going to be smaller than it actually was! Thank you again for your review and we hope we will see you back again in the future!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival after a 2 hour drive down form the airport this villa was a welcome sight. Upon entering we found the place to be huge plenty of room to relax and chill out. The bedrooms were well divided at side of the villa giving privacy when necessary. All items necessary to ensure our stay went without a hitch were avaliable, including bikes, pool floats and chair for the beach etc which were well used during our stay. The view that greeted us each morning for breakfast nook was delightful down oer the garden to the canal. The pool area although not huge got the sun nearly all day long and the loungers were very comfortable. Anybody wishing to find a little luxury would find it hard to do better than to stay here.

We were fortunate enough to spend nearly 4 weeks in Kestrel Meadows and were delighted with the property.

The booking was simple and straight forward, and any queries promply dealt with.

It was very clean on arrival, very well appointed, and with lots of information on the surrounding area.

We had visited this area twice before and have still only scratched the surface for things to do and of course the beautiful beaches.

We would highly recommend this property and if we return to Rotonda would certainly return to Kestrel Meadows.

Kestrel Meadows Review

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Kestrel Meadows in April 2011

We had a wonderful two weeks at the villa, I would have to agree with the other reviews about the cleanliness of the villa it was fantastic

The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful and the service was second to none.

I would certainly recommend the villa to anyone wishing to visit the Rotonda area.

We ourselves are hoping to return soon!

Having read the reviews I was confident that we were making a good choice and we were not dissapointed when we walked through the door for the first time. The house was exactly as described and was even better than in the pictures. It was extremely clean and well maintained. Straght away it felt like a home.

We are a family of five and found the house to be very spacious as it has three double bedrooms with two double beds plus two singles. The kids loved the pool and were swimming morning, noon and night. The pool heated up in the morning and was warm all day.

The management company were excellent and when we called them for some safety vests they dropped them round within an hour.

Its location is excellent for some fantastic beaches with a trip down to Boca Grande a must to enjoy the white sands and million dollar houses! Close by is Englewood beach which has some great fishing piers plus a kids play area next to the beach.

You are only ten minutes from the nearest Walmart plus a variety of shops and restaurants. We found it easy to get where we needed to go and found it to be an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Disney.

We would highly recommend the villa to anyone looking for a high quality home close to the Gulf. If we are back next year we will definetly being renting this villa again. We were only dissapointed that we couldn't stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. The life vests supplied free by our management company are a really nice touch. They are subject to availability, but together with our removable child safety barrier around the pool does give wonderful peace of mind when you have children and it's nice that they are all free! We love Boca Grande too, there are so many excellent beaches around. I wonder if you found the children's play area in the centre of Rotonda? They really seem to think of everything don't they! Thank you again for your review and we hope very much to welcome you back to Kestrel Meadows in the future.

Kestrel Meadows, Rotonda

  • 5 of 5
Thanks a lot for having us as your guests at Kestrel Meadows.

We have been absolutely satisfied, when we arrived and entered the house, everything like we saw on the pictures before hand already. Nevertheless to see it live - the size of the house is good, the complete interiors absolutely great and spotlessly clean, the gorgeous bathrooms, the heated pool with the lanai, not over-looked at all – just a perfect holiday location and exactly what we were looking for.

When our daughter found out that name of the house was Kestrel Meadows she was even more thrilled. Because in her old school they had 4 teams which was competing against each other in different categories and her team had been called “The Kestrels”.

After a couple of days my wife and daughter spotted the “house pet” and named it Jefferson. You might think now what was that ? It was a approximately 6 ft long Alligator which was more or less daily here and was taking his daily sun bath directly on the opposite site of the canal, so we had a nice view of Jefferson and took a lot of pictures of the house pet.
In addition it was really nice to sit out at the pool deck and watch the several birds which are home here at this area.

Even though we had few very cold days (supposed to be the coldest since very long time at December) where the temperatures in the morning of the 25th of December was at 28°F only (-2°C), nevertheless the heating of the house worked well, so even that was no problem at all.

I really used also the opportunity to play more or less daily golf here at Rotonda, already for that purpose it was for me a perfect holiday.

We enjoyed the nice beaches at Englewood, Venice and Gasparilla Island – absolutely great and recommendable.

After having few days in Miami we were really looking forward to have a few quiet days out here at Rotonda, before going for 1 Week to Orlando to have a hectic time again. So we found here absolutely what we were looking for.

All together we had a great time here at Rotonda and at your house and can really recommend it to other people.

Our home is set on Rotonda which is a fabulous residential area for the local community. We have great beaches to the south of us on Gasparilla Island, also known as Boca Grande and to the west along Manasota Key. You are spoilt for choice with so many beaches to choose from. Shopping is a must for many guests. We have excellent value local stores, the Mall in Port Charlotte which is just 20 minutes away with a JC Penney's, Macey's, Bealls and Sears. They also have a good cinema complex there. You also have shops down in Fisherman's Village which is a pier in Punta Gorda where you have cheap and cheerful shops alongside very upmarket ones. When you have finished shopping ,enjoy a drink or a meal at one of the restaurants, including Harpoon Harry's at the end of the pier where you can sit looking out over Charlotte Harbor. For a more upmarket experience, visit Armands Circle in Sarasota. A day you will never forget. We have two discount Malls within easy reach if you run out of ideas locally!

There are plenty of good restaurants and you can eat out very inexpensively here. We keep a guide in our home which is up to date with plenty of ideas of where to find good food at very reasonable prices.

If you like golf, enjoy fishing or hiring a boat for a day, this is the perfect holiday spot! The warm gulf waters are dotted with little islands and it is called in intercoastal waterway. You can hire a boat locally, with or without a captain to give you a very person view of the water side of Florida. You may see Manatee, Dolphins, Bald Eagles, Osprey and inevitably the brown pelican. You can also see the beautiful white pelicans at certain times of the year.

We have many local parks where you can enjoy bird watching or just walking or cycling through the trails. A day at Babcock Ranch is great value for money where you can learn about the different flora and fauna found in this part of Florida and enjoy their own version of a swamp buggy ride!

If your idea of a perfect holiday is to lie by the pool and soak up the warm sun, our peaceful home is ideal and awaits you!
