Outside is a large, caged deck area with a 25-foot pool and a heated spa with views of the Rotonda Canal. There is nothing more relaxing that sitting in the spa with a cool drink watching the beautiful Florida sunsets. The pool is solar heated, but has an additional electrical heater if required in the colder months at a fee of $60 a week. Spa heating costs $50 a week, but if doubled up with the electric pool heater its $90 for both
The villa is situated 35 miles from the airports in Fort Myers or Sarasota with both less than 50-minute drive. Fantastic beaches at Englewood and on the island of Boca Grande are with 10 and 20 minutes drive away respectively. The major Florida Theme parks are close enough to be accessible, but far enough to stop persistent pestering from the kids. Busch Gardens can be reached easily in one hour 45 minutes, Disney and Great Universal Studios take about 45 minutes longer. Kennedy Space Centre is about three hours 30 minutes.
Rotonda West offers great facilities. The community park has free tennis courts, play grounds and plenty of open space for even the most energetic children. For those who like to cycle there is a cycle path that threads its way through Rotonda West and over to Rotonda Lakes (via the Pioneer trail - rail to cycle paths). There are ample restaurants in the area. These range from the Leverrocks Restaurant that is only accessible by boat with fantastic coastal views to numerous family friendly restaurants such as Prime Time, Howards, Country Hound, Farlows on the Water and Mamas. You can eat on the beach either in a casual style at The South Beach Grill on Boca Grande or the lively White Elephant at Englewood which looks out over Lemon Bay. You can go up market at the Gulf View Grill that over looks the beautiful Englewood beach and promenade. There are three large supermarkets close by. Winn Dixie (open until 11 PM), Wal-Mart (24 hours), and Publix (24 hours) are all within ten-minute drive. There is a water park less than 1 hour away in Cape Coral (Sunsplash) and a children's crazy golf park nearby on interstate 776.
For the golfers, this part of Florida is an absolute must. There are four golf courses actually on Rotonda West that are all part of Rotonda West Country Club. An additional 15 courses are within 15-minute drive and offer golf for a range of handicaps and pockets.
The best way to explore the beautiful Port Charlotte harbour area is by boat. Pop down to Whidden's Marina on Boca Grande and hire a boat from Captain Russ's boat hire. You can go south to Cayo Costa or Cabbage key, or North up to Placidia, Don Pedro Island or Lemon bay. You can find some beautiful beaches only accessible by boat.
For those that just love to shop, the main Shopping Centre in Port Charlotte has all the big names plus more restaurants than you can name including the Outback Steakhouse, Ruby Tuesdays, and Sam Salsa. Continue on a little further (ten minutes) to Punta Gorda and you will find Fisherman’s Village.
