Our home is set on the Rotonda which is a fabulous residential area for the local community. We have great beaches to the south of us on Gasparilla Island, also known as Boca Grande and to the west along Manasota Key including Blind Pass and Englewood Beaches. You are spoilt for choice with so many beaches to choose from.
Shopping is a must for many guests. We have excellent value local stores, the Mall in Port Charlotte which is just 20 minutes away with a JC Penney's, Macey's, Bealls and Sears. They also have a good cinema complex there. You also have shops down in Fisherman's Village which is a pier in Punta Gorda where you have cheap and cheerful shops alongside very upmarket ones. When you have finished shopping ,enjoy a drink or a meal at one of the restaurants, including Harpoon Harry's at the end of the pier where you can sit looking out over Charlotte Harbor. For a more upmarket experience, visit Armands Circle in Sarasota. A day you will never forget. We have two discount Malls within easy reach if you run out of ideas locally!
There are plenty of good restaurants and you can eat out very inexpensively here. We keep a guide in our home which is up to date with plenty of ideas of where to find good food at very reasonable prices.
If you like golf, enjoy fishing or hiring a boat for a day, this is the perfect holiday spot! The warm gulf waters are dotted with little islands within the inter-coastal waterways. You can hire a boat locally, with or without a captain to give you a very person view of the water side of Florida. You may see Manatee, Dolphins, Bald Eagles,Tortoises, Snakes, Alligators, Osprey and inevitably the brown pelican. You can also see the beautiful white pelicans at certain times of the year.
We have many local parks where you can enjoy bird watching or just walking or cycling through the trails. A day at Babcock Ranch is great value for money where you can learn about the different flora and fauna found in this part of Florida and enjoy their own version of a swamp buggy ride!
If your idea of a perfect holiday is to lie by the pool and soak up the warm sun or visit the theme parks at Walt Disney World, our peaceful home is ideal and awaits you!

A Home for a Fantastic Vacation!
We chose this home for our vacation in April 2018. This was our 10th vacation to the Englewood/Venice/Rotonda area, and this was definitely one of our best experiences. The pictures really don't do the home justice. Everything was well taken care of and we didn't have to worry about anything during our stay. The house is toward the middle of Rotonda and is at a quiet location.
I appreciated the quick response during booking and leading up to our rental. We were able to check in with ease. The deposit was promptly refunded after our departure.
This will be a house that we will look to reserve for our future vacations to one of our favorite places!
Great Vacation in Southwest Florida
We stayed at this home for the month of March 2018. It was spacious, very clean and had everything you needed for an extended stay. The kitchen was well equipped to do any kind of cooking. The pool was crystal clear and beautiful with a big lanai and barbecue. The bed was very comfortable.
Then there is the location! We biked everyday on the numerous surrounding trails. Cape Haze trail is only a 15 minute bike ride from the house and is beautiful. It takes you right to the fishing pier by the Fishery Restaurant. Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island and Englewood beach are only a short drive away. Lots of great restaurants and shopping nearby also. The neighborhood was peaceful and everyone around was friendly.
If you are looking to stay in southwest Florida I would highly recommend this home. We didn't have a single issue with anything and the owner Allison was very pleasant to deal with.
We had a great experience here! The home was clean and cozy, and was equipt with exactly what we needed!
We had a great vacation. Home is in a very quiet neighborhood. Pool was very nice and the heater worked great. Water was comfortable even on cold days. Our few minor problems were taken care of right away. Wood storks visited pool one day and even the dog did not scare them away. Had a great stay.
Great Vacation Rental
We were extremely pleased with the property. The home was very comfortable with great amenities. It was very clean when we arrived, and we were able to immediately settle in... TV in every room, good BBQ and a nice pool. They even provided chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Verse location, just minutes from the beach, golf courses, grocery shops and restaurants. The owners were very quick about responding to any inquiries, and their property manager even came by to introduce herself. We really enjoyed our vacation and highly recommend the home. We will definitely be going back.
great location for beach people & golfers
house has what you expect an average home to have. We found the stools at the counter were not the right height & the living room needed chairs for viewing TV but that was only a minor problem. Also, the rug in the master bedroom was very slippery & I almost fell once. We were only inside during bad weather & at nite so not a big deal.
Overall, it is a comfortable home but needs a little tweaking to be an above average home. I would rent there again, great location.
Thank you for your review Garry this is much appreciated. Should you book again with us, we will give you a $75 discount on your booking.
