YOUR VERY COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Rotonda West Villa Rental Photos and Description

House on Canal, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

As your enter the front door, you are welcomed to a spacious, bright, open area. The living room invites you to a cozy lounge space, which directs you to sliding glass doors leading to the Lanai and the serene pool.

The wonderful over-sized Lanai surrounded with gorgeous pot plants is the main feature for relaxation, next to your enjoyment in the crystal clear pool with a soothing waterfall.

The pool, equipped with solar panel heating, is enclosed within the screened Lanai, providing a bug-free environment under the Florida sun all day long. Electric heating of the pool is available on request at additional charge.

The Lanai is furnished with an elegant patio set that seats six, perfect for outdoor dining, entertaining, as well as lounging for those who love to sunbathe or relax by the poolside.

Separate from the outdoor dining area, a beautiful, all-wicker seating area is available for your pleasure of freshly brewed coffee (espresso machine on the premise), and freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice conveniently picked right off the trees in the backyard. A gas barbecue is also provided. It is the perfect tranquil spot to rest, enjoy the peaceful view of the pool, and most of all, observe an abundance of local wildlife (ibis, egrets, wood storks, cranes, herons, osprey, anhingas, cormorants, and gopher turtles).

Back inside, the spacious 2000 square feet home is tastefully decorated with attention to quality and detail. This fully air-conditioned home provides a peaceful and serene setting.

It is a split plan home, with the master bedroom on one side of the house with direct access through sliding glass doors to the Lanai. It has a King size bed, complete with high quality Sealy foam mattress and pillows, en-suite bathroom with a sunken bath, a walk-in Roman shower, two separate vanities, a toilet, and a large walk-in closet.

On the opposite side of the house: a second bedroom - with direct access through sliding glass doors to the Lanai - complete with a Queen size bed. Additionally, there is a third bedroom with two twin beds, providing ample sleeping accommodation for up to six persons.

Both guest bedrooms have their own walk-in closets. The adjoining bathroom is complete with a sink, a toilet, and a combination tub with shower, through which one can access the Lanai, conveniently serving as a pool bathroom.

A generous amount of quality bed and bath-linens are provided.

Hair-dryer is available in the main bathroom.

All beds have top quality silk duvets and waterproof protective covers.

The living room is centered on a 50-inch plasma cable-connected TV and comfortable, modern furniture.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for meal preparation. It has all the conveniences of home: refrigerator with freezer compartment, microwave, dishwasher, ice maker, blender, electric kettle, toaster, waffle maker and a garbage disposal.

All bedrooms, the kitchen, the living room and the Lanai are fitted with refreshing ceiling fans.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy nook, which overlooks the pool, open to a lovely view during breakfast and morning coffee. From the nook, the Lanai and pool can be accessed through sliding glass doors.

An elegant formal dining room comfortably seats six people and provides a view of the unique art work and palm trees at the front of the house.

A separate utility room is equipped with a clothes washer, dryer, sink and an ironing board, as well as a self-lifting iron. A spacious double garage with automatic up-and-over door provides substantial short-term storage.

For those who need to keep in touch with family, friends, or business via Internet, there is Comcast (cable) and high-speed/broadband access available to your own personal laptop/notebook (a computer is not provided). The VOIP phone service allows for free local and national (US and Canada) calls, with international calls available by using a phone card (easily purchased locally).

The antimicrobial ultraviolet (UV) light installed in the heating-A/C system ensures that the house remains allergy-free.

There is a Winn-Dixie (discount membership provided), Publix, CVS, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart within a few miles for your shopping needs.

The yard and pool are maintained weekly.

If you need any assistance during your stay, our local management company supervises practical matters, such as any break-downs and end-of-stay cleaning. They are available to help you if such needs arise.

Still a gem in Rotonda

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed our third stay in Magdalena's delightful Florida villa. We submitted a review last year and this last stay was every bit as enjoyable as our previous visits. This really is our home from home and we are due to return later this year. This is now a regular fixture in our vacation calendar and we can truly recommend this perfect home and location for a super holiday. See our earlier review for more details.

An Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed in what we feel is the best home in Rotonda West! It exceeded all of our expectations. Magdalena saw to every detail to ensure our comfort. We felt right at home on the oversized lanai which was spectacular with plenty of room to dine and relax in beautiful and comfortable high end patio furniture. The house was immaculately clean and very well maintained. The fruit trees right outside the door made for delicious fresh squeezed juice as well as for eating.
Rotonda is a very beautiful and quiet area; a truly great hidden Florida treasure. You are only 10 to 15 minutes away from several great beaches. Stump Pass State Park and Boca Grande were two of our favorites. We saw all sorts of wildlife, the highlight being a nest of American bald eagles!
You simply cannot go wrong in staying here. It's the perfect place for a wonderful vacation! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked for next year!

One of the best

  • 5 of 5
Having visited Rotunda West for the last 15 years I can report this is one of the best rental properties on the estate. A great deal of thought has been placed on the comfort of clients, especially the outdoor living area where the patio furniture is top quality. The welcome items are nice touch and not seen enough in most rental properties. Magdalena kept in touch and vacation of 4 weeks went without a hitch.

rotonda stay

  • 5 of 5
Villa was just as described, with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. Right from the start Magdalena was so helpfull and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and the welcome was just as nice with an email to check we arrived safely. The large lot and landscaping made the villa very private. The size and layout of the lanai was excellent as the sun was on the deck the whole day. Fab pool and the waterfall was very relaxing. Having the use of the bikes was great and got us out and about the neighbourhood, however, it took a wee while to master the fixed wheel gearing!! We had a very enjoyable stay which even tropical storm Andrea didnt spoil.

A Real Gem in Rotonda

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed six weeks vacation in Magdalena's delightful Rotonda home.

The house has everything to make a perfect holiday - comfortable, spotless accommodation, beautiful pool with spacious lanai and screened deck in a great location. There is a real feeling of space and the villa is situated on a double lot with flowering shrubs and palms providing a picturesque setting and privacy without spoiling views of the canal backdrop.

Birdlife is in abundance and a great source of pleasure visually and to the ear. We spent many contented hours relaxing around the pool enjoying the natural sights and sounds.

Magdalena, a true perfectionist, really went the extra mile to make sure everything was just right for us and was keen that our stay went smoothly.

The villa has some lovely touches and is very well equipped. There are even two bicyles in the garage for those who like some gentle exercise on the safe and undemanding local roads. Rotonda is a pleasant, quiet residential community with excellent restaurants just a short drive away, many with sea and sunset views.

We have already made plans for our return later in the year.

Relaxation +++

  • 5 of 5
Planning our stay at this home started months prior to our arrival. Magdalena, the owner, was genuinely concerned that her vacation home was going to exceed our expectations - and it did. Most of our previous rentals included a "you never told us that" kind of surprise. This year was the exception. Magdalena's communication with us was frequent and detailed, presumably to avoid any last minute surprises. The cable service was interrupted one evening. We lost television, internet and telephone service. Magdalena investigated and took steps to ensure service was promptly restored.

We found the home exactly as depicted in the many photographs. It was clean and well appointed. All the mattresses were new and high-end. We have never slept so soundly. The majority of our time was spent relaxing around the beautiful salt-water pool. The patio furniture was the nicest we have enjoyed. In fact, visitors next door came over for a look and were immediately impressed with the outdoor appointments. Both the neighbours and street were quiet, which made early morning walks especially relaxing.

For those not familiar with the Englewood / Port Charlotte area, it has been described as Florida's best kept secret. Visitors enjoy quiet beaches, less traffic congestion and reasonable prices. Rotonda itself is a nature sanctuary. Good restaurants and shopping are minutes away as are I-75 and Fort Myers Airport.

We have wintered all over Florida but settled on Rotonda. If you spend time here, you'll know why. We hope that Magdalena will allow us to enjoy this gem in the future and have no reservations recommending it to others.
