Our beautiful spacious villa has a south-facing heated pool and the lanai overlooks a small, peaceful canal. It has been tastefully furnished to a high standard, has full air conditioning, and wi fi Internet. The villa is located in a quiet cul de sac (no outlet) with no through traffic, so it's a wonderful place to unwind - yet it is close to many amenities. Our guests rate the villa as 5* - just check out their comments at the bottom of this page.
The spacious living/great room has a flat-screen, digital TV, Blu-Ray/DVD Player, CD/radio, and a luxurious sofa that coverts to a double bed. There is a separate dining area and also a breakfast nook, but we enjoy eating at the poolside table, beside the sun loungers,looking out down the canal. Many of our guests sit out on the lanai in the evenings and make use of the barbeque grill.
The master bedroom is 24 feet long with a king-size bed and digital TV. It leads to a large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, deep bath, 'his' and 'hers' wash basins and vanity units. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and digital TV, while the third bedroom has twin beds. Each bedroom has a chest and walk-in closet, and there is a second bathroom for bedrooms two and three. Both the master bedroom and the great room have sliding doors that open out onto the lanai.
The large kitchen is well-equipped with all the normal facilities. It has a breakfast bar with bar stools, and there is a separate laundry room with a washer and dryer.
Rotonda West is a sought-after residential community, close to miles of superb sandy beaches. The are endless possibilities for golfing (6 courses within 5 miles!), fishing, shelling, boating, and nature trips. The area boasts several good restaurants as well as casual dining, and there are many shops and malls in Englewood, Port Charlotte, Venice, Sarasota and Ellenton.
The combination of quality accommodation in a superb locality means a great stay for our guests, many of whom return when they vacation in Florida.
We had a lovely stay at this villa. It is in a quiet location but close enough to beaches, restaurants, etc. to enjoy the best of both worlds. The beds are all very comfortable and the house is well equipped for fun (bicycles, beach equipment, games) and for daily living (very functional kitchen).
We enjoyed relaxing on the screened lanai and in the solar heated pool. Our kids and grandkids came for a visit and loved the pool. We also enjoyed day trips to nearby beaches and to Boca Grande, Punta Gorda, Edison Ford Estates in Fort Myers, Myakka State Park, renting a pontoon boat and taking it out on Lemon Bay.
We had such a good time that we already booked it for next year!
We had such a relaxing week at the villa.
It was comfy,peaceful and had everything we could possibly need.
Such comfy beds we slept like logs.
The villa is so nicely furnished,it had a home from home feel about it.
The beaches are about 15 minutes away and were quiet even in mid July!
People are really friendly and there are some nice restaurants.
We will definitely visit again.
We had a wonderful time escaping the winter cold back home during the month of January. The villa has everything one could wish for and is perfectly located for our favorite hobbies -- golfing and cycling. The neighborhood is quiet and the peole are friendly. We were amazed at how warm the solar-heated pool was! Marcel is a very accommodating host and was so responsive any time we had questions or concerns about anything.
We rented the villa over the New Year and found it to be well equipped, clean and tidy. It is a perfect base to explore the local area with the added bonus of a pool which we put to good use and lots of helpful information about the local area and suggestions for trips/places to visit. We would recommend the villa to friends and would definitely like to return.
Most comfortable villa with excellent views and surroundings. Just what we needed after a hectic house sale in Florida before returning to UK. Will certainly return sometime soon
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in your villa. There was every comfort and convenience that we could possibly want in a holiday home. The villa was so spacious and we loved the beautifully clean pool. The area is relaxing and very quiet, just what we needed for a relaxing holiday. We had some trips: to the Mote Marine aquarium in Sarasota and to the Edison Ford estates in Fort Myers, to Port Charlotte mall, to Stump Pass and Blind Pass beaches. Your maps were invaluable, especially the more detailed ones. We took up some of the dining recommendations and ate out very well but we also made good use of the local supermarkets (Winn Dixie, Publix and Walmart). We would also like to make our own recommendation of a traditional little diner (open 7am until 2pm) called The Egg and I, on Placida Road at the junction with Michigan Ave. We enjoyed a couple of Sunday brunches there with great service and very reasonable prices. Another recommendation is an ice cream kiosk called Swirls 'n' Curls which offers an amazing and delicious choice of 'home made' style flavours. It's on the corner of Sunnybrook Road and South McCall Road (US 776).
The owners were extremely helpful and informative during the booking process and even contacted us during our stay to make sure everything was ok. The couple who look after the villa were also very attentive and helpful and made a point of contacting us at the start of our stay.
We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely villa and will certainly book again if we return to this area. Many thanks.
