About Michael Barker

I am a retired medical doctor and my wife Ann is a retired company director. We live in a victorian cottage in rural Suffolk, England that we share with two cats!

Why Michael Barker chose Rotonda West

We built this house as our second home with everything in it as we wanted it to be.

Having had villa holidays in many countries we were continually drawn back to Rotonda and so it seemed the logical place to build our dream home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much enjoyed our time in Rotonda. Your home is beautiful - by far the nicest villa we have stayed in.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with 4 adults and a 1 year old in early oct 2014. Had a wonderful stay. Communication with the owner was prompt and helpful. Thanks!
The place is modern, super clean, spacious and quiet.
Would recommend for families or anyone wanting to relax. The pool is great and you'll find all the amenities you need including bikes, golf clubs and beach gear.
Cannot recommend highly enough

Florida at it's best !

Florida at it's best !
  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the Villa having spent a hectic few days in Orlando. We have previously stayed on Rotunda and the surrounding areas and were very much looking forward to this years stay.

We found the Villa exactly as described in the listing with all the promised amenities and it was extremely clean, well presented and very spacious.

We enjoyed watching all the wildlife that was around the Villa which included the magnificently coloured red Cardinal birds, Egrets, Woodpeckers and the high flying Osprey. We also had daily visits in the land at the rear of the property from a Gopher Tortoise and noticed a small mound of sand which was being dug up only to see a baby tortoise - truly magical!

Once again we took the opportunity to explore the many wonderful beaches that are in the area. Our favourite was at Englewood (Stump Pass) for the shark teeth collecting which we really do enjoy. The beaches at Siesta Key, Manasota Key and Venice Beach are also very beautiful and are also great for shelling and shark teeth collecting.

Gasperilla Island is amazing, the houses so large and beautiful and is only a short 20 minute drive from the Villa. We rented a golf cart to get around which our son thoroughly enjoyed doing as he drove whilst my husband and I enjoyed the sights. The beaches here too are really good, the beach behind the South Beach Bar and Grill is also really nice and is another good spot for shark teeth collecting.

So far as eating out is concerned, there are so many good choices which meet all budgets. Our favourites and in no particular order include Sharky's on the Pier (Venice), Lock 'n Key (Englewood), Pink Elephant (Gasperilla Island), South Beach Bar and Grill (Gasperilla Island), Joe Crackers (Port Charlotte), Outback Steakhouse (Port Charlotte) - really there are so many !!!

So far as shopping is concerned, you can't go wrong at Ellenton Outlet Mall, St Armands Circle (Sarasota) and the Mall at Port Charlotte. Sign up online for VIP membership of the Premium Outlet Malls for even further discounts - wonderful retail therapy !!!

We took a couple of local boat trips (day time and sunset) run by Lemon Bay Tours - details in the welcome folder. We saw many dolphins and even some manatees (very unusual for this time of year).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this Villa and are looking to come back again next year and hope to bring my sister and nephew to enjoy the whole amazing experience with us.

Armadillo Villa at Rotonda

  • 5 of 5
We have had 9 Villa holidays in Florida, 5 of them at Rotonda. This is easily the best equipped and maintained 3 bedroom villa we have stayed in, including wifi that works properly, four cycles and even a proper teapot (absent from most holiday villas and impossible to but, even at Walmart). The pool temperature is excellent with the optional heating in November and the hot tub instructions are the most comprehensive we have seen. We can thoroughly recommend this villa and it will be our first choice when we want a 3 bedroom stay again.

Exquisite holiday villa

  • 5 of 5
As a regular visitor to Rotonda, this villa is by far the best I have stayed in. It is wonderfully spacious and beautifully furnished. The poolside area is fantastic, and the heated spa is a great addition for when the sun starts to set. The villa is very private, with no properties directly opposite the pool area and the villa to the side is screened by a fence. The wireless internet is fast and has a strong signal, both inside and outside the villa. I would recommend the villa to friends and family.
