Luxury Villa on main Rotonda canal

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Completed in February 2007, this luxury villa backs onto the main Rotonda Canal giving spectacular water views. Fish for trout, watch the abundant bird life, or simply appreciate the peace and quiet of this superb location. The property is equipped and furnished to the highest standard throughout and immaculately maintained.

Living accommodation consists of a great room equipped with a LCD flat panel TV, multi region DVD /DivX player, and seating for six; a formal dining area with a six-place table; an informal "nook" dining room with a six-seat table and a fully-equipped (dishwasher, microwave, ceramic hob cooker, cookware) large kitchen that has a utility room containing washing machine and dryer. The house has a wireless internet connection and a PC.

Sleeping accommodation consists of a master bedroom containing a king-size bed, walk-in wardrobe, and an en suite bathroom with a "Jacuzzi" bath, walk-in shower, and twin wash basins. The second bedroom has a queen-size double bed, built-in wardrobe, and a dressing table. Bedroom three has two single beds, a built-in wardrobe, and a dressing table. Bedroom four is multi-functional depending on requirements. It contains a high quality sofa bed allowing it to be used as a third double bedroom or as a TV room containing a three-seat sofa with a 28-inch TV with integral DVD and VCR plus DivX player. The house bathroom is fitted to a high standard, has twin wash basins and a shower/bath with direct access to the pool deck.

The garage is also multi functional. It can be used as a traditional garage with electric opening door, or to amuse the kids as a game room with air hockey, pool and table tennis tables.

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.

The Franks Family

  • 5 of 5

We have always loved this part of Florida and have vacationed here for many years. This was our first time needing a rental and I must say we found the PERFECT one!! This villa had everything we could have possibly needed to make this a great two week getaway for our family. We enjoyed everything from biking & walking the quiet neighborhood, using the pool/spa, fishing the canals & grilling on the lanai. The kitchen is well equipped, and the pool /spa was clean and always the perfect temperature. There are beautiful beaches and wonderful restaurants close by to enjoy as well. Tim made the booking process extremely simple and I hope to make this home our annual vacation rental!

This Home Has it All

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in the Rotonda area for many years. This home is nicely located, very quiet and private, yet close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Very nicely furnished, clean, bright and spacious. We spent most of our time in the pool and the spa. The lanai and pool area has lots of room to spread out, and great to have the sun all day to get the most out of the outdoors. We loved watching the alligators and many birds while lounging around the pool or having a meal al fresco. We saw a bobcat just around the corner in the daytime which was really cool.

A big thank you to Tim, who was very responsive to questions and very knowledgeable about the area. Additional thanks to the friendly woman who arrived weekly to diligently clean the pool and spa. We must note that, of the dozen or so homes that we have stayed at, this was the cleanest, most well maintained pool that we have ever seen, and the temperature was perfect!

Everything we needed was provided. We just had to bring food for the BBQ, wine, books and lots of sunscreen.

It is easy to see why this home is reserved so well in advance!

Beautiful villa in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several villas in the Rotonda area over the last 7 years but this villa is by far the best - it has a beautiful viewpoint over the river, everything was spotlessly clean, it is very spacious and well equipped, and has lovely plush furnishings - all of which made it a very special holiday.

We spent a couple of days on Gasparilla Island which is just a short drive away. It is utterly beautiful and uncrowded, and the sea is crystal clear. The children loved the pool at the villa (as did we) and we also had time for a well-earned rest in the hot tub after spending the previous week at Disney!

Tim was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We very much hope to return on our next trip to Florida!
