THE PRESERVE -STUNNING VACATION VILLA, UPSCALE, GOLF SCOOP, CLOSE TO BEACHES

Rotonda West Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, den, sleeps 6

This wonderful home will take your breath away! With over 4,000 sq ft of area and over 2,800 sq ft under air, this grand home offers a perfect luxury destination for your holiday.

We chose this home partly because of the south rear aspect, huge pool deck, and total privacy due to the fact that it is on a double lot and backs onto a nature reserve.

This house is not overlooked at all. It was was professionally furnished and the rich décor flows from room to room. Our management company keeps The Preserve in immaculate condition for us and our guests.

The living accommodation consists of a great room with high tray ceilings as you enter the house. To your left is an elegant dining area which seats four. The family room at the back of the house has a large, flat screen TV and sound system.

The kitchen is well-equipped and boasts black granite countertops. The breakfast nook seats four and provides a great view of the pool through the aquarium glass window.

A separate study/den contains a desk and high quality (single) sofa bed allowing it to be used as a fourth bedroom or a work area. The utility room contains a washer and dryer, sink, cupboards, and plenty of outdoor towels. This house has a wireless internet connection.

The sleeping area offers a master bedroom with a king-size bed, wall mounted flatscreen TV, walk-in wardrobes, and a fabulous en suite bathroom with a garden bath, walk-in shower, twin sinks, and separate WC. Guest bedroom 2 has a queen-size bed, wall mounted flatscreen TV, and a dresser. Guest bedroom 3 has a queen-size bed and dresser. The guest bathroom has a tiled shower/tub and single vanity unit.

Outside, on the expansive pool deck you will find four comfortable sun loungers for sunbathing comfortably at either end of the extra large swimming pool. Guests often use the lanai for meals, eating at the table which seats 8. A half bathroom and separate shower are also on the lanai.

The triple garage has electric opening doors and contains three bicycles for guest use. Brick pavers on the driveway contibute to the gracious entrance, which is enhanced by a leaded-glass paned door and tropical landscaping. This is truly the most elegant of homes.

Staying on Rotonda is perfect for holiday guests and snowbirds. We are members of a golf program which allows guests staying at the house to enjoy unlimited golf on 4 of the Rotonda courses, paying a $50. administration fee, and for the golf cart hire. Ask about the 'Golf Scoop'. The Cape Haze Pioneer Trail is 1/4 of a mile away from the house, and offers a paved path for walking or biking.

Wonderful beaches are within 5-10 miles to the west and the south with good parking and rest rooms. In addition, there are several State Parks where you can take tours, kayak, cycle or walk through fabulous eco-systems. The nearest theme park is Busch Gardens which can be reached easily in one hour 45 minutes or you will find an excellent water park called SunSplash which is about an hour south of us in Cape Coral.

If you are looking for an elegant vacation villa that has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, yet is close to beaches, golf, and tropical restaurants, then The Preserve is the place for you!

My husband and I live just outside of Rochester, New York in a rural town of Avon. He is a farmer and grain trader/handler. I have taught primary school for 34 years. Our grown children live close by, and we all love to vacation at The Preserve in Rotonda West, Florida.

Sandy Howlett purchased this villa in 2009

This is one of the most grand and beautiful homes on Boundary. It is spacious and has a beautiful view of the nature preserve.

Spent 3 lovely weeks at this amazing home! Luxury and privacy abound in this wonderful home! We are already looking forward to our visit next year. You will not be disappointed in this vacation home. The owners are fantastic to deal with and provide all the comforts of home. You are close to restaurant's, beaches and shopping but far enough away to enjoy the beauty and privacy that helps make a vacation truly relaxing. Thanks for allowing us to share you wonderful home.

Relaxing and Fun!

  • 5 of 5
We just arrived home after a week at the Preserve. Our week was so relaxing and fun! It was our 3rd vacation in Rotonda and love the area! The house was lovely and quiet. The quiet preserve setting is our favorite. Our 3 yr old grandson cried when we had to leave. But we convinced him we will return! Love the near by beaches at Boca Grande and great restaurants in Englewood. Flounders being our favorite with great fish and burgers. We had so much fun playing in the pool. The shower in master is awesome! We had fun running in the openness of the floor plan and playing hide and seek with our lil guy! Would love to own a home just like this someday! Everyone in the family loved it from us in our 40s to our grown children and our favorite 3 yr old! The owners were so pleasant to work with and extremely fast with their reply to any of our questions. We will be back!

Stunning property.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at The Preserve was fantastic. The property is gorgeous and has everything we could have wanted. The attention to detail is terrific and dealing with Sandy, the owner was a pleasure.

The location of the property is perfect - a ten minute drive to the most stunning beach on Boca Grande and the choice of places to eat and shop near by is fabulous.

The swimming pool and deck area are amazing, very peaceful and relaxing.

The property was immaculate and certainly did exceed our expectations. We would have no hesitation in returning to this property.

We arrived home today, we all loved your home in Rotonda, we wanted for nothing and found it to be very peaceful and relaxing.
We have stayed in a lot of homes in Rotonda over the last 13 years and voted yours the best and hope to return again soon.
Thanks again for letting my family spend our vacation in your holiday home.

Beautiful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
Me and my boyfriend had a wedding to go to in Boca Grande, Fl. All of the hotels were booked so we decided to look at some houses we could rent for the weekend, we came across this rental and tried it. When you first walk in the door the only thing you can say is "wow". It looks even better then in the pictures, there's so much room and the decor is beautiful throughout the house. Also, everything you would need while you're there is all ready for you, from plates and cups to pool toys! While we were at the pool one afternoon we even saw a tortoise walking in the yard. I will deffinatley recommend this house to anyone I know who's staying in the area! Also, the owner Sandy was great, she kept in contact the whole time and answered every question. Fantastic weekend.
