Rotonda West Villa Rental Photos and Description

3Bed 2BathVilla Lake/Golf View, DISCOUNTS please inquire...US$ (also accept UK£)

A beautiful villa in a wonderful location, overlooking a wildlife lake and with views towards one of the many local golf courses - in fact it would be difficult to find another villa with a comparable idyllic setting. The open Florida style villa built in 2007 overlooks the pool and superb, peaceful and quiet situation. From the pool at the rear of the villa the lawn slopes down to the lake. Within view is the 5th green of Long Marsh golf course, but not too close to disturb the peace or seclusion.

The wide variety of wildlife including green, little blue and great blue herons, egrets and anhingas, the sight of a bald eagle soaring overhead and the sound or sighting of a gator as the sun sets is the making of memories, something very special. The entire area of Rotonda West is a designated bird sanctuary.

The Villa: Built in 2007, the home has been furnished with great care to offer visitors a very comfortable and enjoyable experience. The villa comprises a spacious and airy ‘Great Room’ with cathedral ceiling and a cozy corner with swivel rockers where board games and reading matter can be found. The kitchen is well equipped for those who enjoy cooking, with breakfast bar and swivel stools allowing integration with the living area. A breakfast nook with slate table and wooden chairs overlooks the pool and terrace. There are three bedrooms (one king, one queen and one fitted with twin beds), master bathroom with a large walk-in shower and separate (his and her) marble vanity units and a second full bathroom with bath and shower. CABLE TV (APPROX 70 CHANNELS) is provided in the Great Room (40inch),master bedroom and the queen bedroom; WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS is also provided.

Private Pool, Lanai & More: Sliding glass patio doors give access to the lanai where a large glass topped patio table and chairs are located for alfresco dining; loungers are available for guests to use. There is a GAS BBQ on the terrace to complete the outdoor living experience (enclosed in the lanai). The pool is equipped with removable SAFETY FENCE that can be installed to prevent access by non-swimmers, affording peace of mind for parents with young children. FIVE BICYCLES for the use of guests and a PING PONG TABLE for that fun-filled evening can be found in the garage (fitted with remote control door opener). There are also 4 SETS of GOLF CLUBS and TENNIS RACKETS available for use.

Activities: Boat charter is available through our friendly local management company who offer other services including transfers to and from local airports and will also provide a breakfast starter pack if required. Rent a boat and explore the intra-coastal waterways to Punta Gorda or north to Venice and Sarasota. Alternatively, charter a boat and skipper and sail out into the Gulf for the excitement of game fishing for marlin or tarpon. Rotonda is an excellent area for cycling with its own pioneer trail and a cycle path that stretches down to Boca Grande. Within the community there are six magnificent golf courses, all open to the public and over 30 courses within a 15mile radius of Rotonda.

Tampa with it's International airport and Bush Gardens is 1½h drive to the north, while Orlando (Disney World, Universal Studios etc), the Everglades and Miami are all within reach (2½h to 3½h). Closer to home are Port Charlotte (15mins), Venice & Punta Gorda (30mins), Sarasota (1h) and Fort Myers (1h).

Our favorite

  • 5 of 5

This is a grate property in an amazing location. We are a family of three persons from the Netherlands and we spend here three weeks from our summer vacation and its felt like being home but away. Making the reservation was real easy, the contact we had with, Caroline, the owner, was fast and very well managed. The villa is beautiful, you have everything you might need, very clean and very well taking cared.

The area is amazing with lots to explore.

We have been before in Florida and we had some other property's but this is certainly our favorite.

Fantastic Villa in Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

After a frenetic week of the Disney and Universal Parks we came to Rotonda looking for a little peace and quiet and the "Real" Florida. This villa was ideal, loads of space for our family and located in a quiet location, close to some wonderful beaches - Stump Pass is the REAL Florida.

Everything we needed was in the Villa, a real Home from Home, and the added touches of having Bikes available to use plus the Table Tennis table made for a wonderful family holiday.

The view to the back of the villa is also great, enjoy the sunset over the pool and Lake, and don't forget the wildlife - numerous birds, the local gator, squirrels all add to the experience.

Great communications from the owner too, so all in all a true 5 Star Holiday Home.

Wondeful stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa that is well equipped with everything one needs for a stay including bikes and golf clubs. The villa is beautiful on the inside with cathedral ceilings and a gorgeous view overlooking the heated pool onto a small lake which attracts a variety of wildlife. All rooms are of good size with a lovely large master bedroom and large master bathroom.

The area is quiet with good beaches within a 15 minute drive. There are numerous great restaurants in the area with grocery stores and other shopping within a 10 to 15 minute drive.

The property is well maintained and the owner, Caroline, is very easy to work with and responsive to our questions.

Best recommendation I can offer is that we have already rented this villa for 2016.

Magnificent Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a newer home with soaring ceilings and a wide open floor plan. It is in a quiet country area but only 10 to 15 minutes from shopping and beautiful beaches. From the great room is a spectacular view of the pool area and lake. We enjoyed seeing many large birds and a daily visit from a stork who would walk up to us when we were outside the lanai. The pool is set to a nice warm temperature. We were in the pool often during our winter stay. Caroline always responded promptly to our questions and comments. This is the most well equipped home we have ever stayed in and everything is high quality. We have already booked for next year and can't wait to go back.

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa has the "WOW" factor, upon our arrival we toured the interior of the home and every room that we walk into both my wife and I said WOW. It is tastefully decorated

and very spacious. This Villa is situated in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood.

It has 6 adult bicycles for personal use which we used on many occasions especially on the pioneer trail close by. Also, it was appreciated that the Villa came wtih beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. to bring to many beautiful beaches nearby. Our favorite was

Gasparilla Island just a few miles away. Caroline is great to deal with and will always

respond to any question or concerns. We had a great time and it certainly was a pleasure

to have stayed in such a wonderful Villa.

So good we stayed again!

  • 5 of 5

When I researched all the properties across Florida for somewhere to stay for a week pre-cruise I could not find one that looked as if it came up to the same standard as the Rantells. We loved this place so much, we came back! (I never do that!) The boys managed a bike ride around Medalist Rd this time before collapsing in a heap (it was a warm week!) and played table tennis too! I snagged a Geocache just by the bridge so everyone was happy!

The location of this villa is perfect for beach, marinas and shopping :)

Spotlessly clean as usual and as ever I want to bring that walk in closet home with me ;)

Thanks again!

Map

Car: necessary

The villa is located in the much sought after and loved Rotonda West on the Cape Haze Peninsula.

Rotonda is a wonderful mix of wildlife greenbelt, canals and golf courses, a very peaceful and lovely area not far from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf – one could not want for a more perfect situation.

Set between Venice, Englewood and Port Charlotte on Florida’s Gulf Coast also helps to make it a great location. There are wide and safe Gulf beaches to the west and the smaller Caribbean style beaches to the south. These pristine white sand beaches have wonderful magical names - Manasota Key, Don Pedro Island, Stump Pass, Palm Island, Sanibel, Gasparilla & Boca Grande to name but a few and every one not to be missed!

The area boasts world class fresh and salt water fishing and an abundance of other water based activities. For those that like to shop there are superb malls and shopping at Port Charlotte, Sarasota and Naples.

Other Activities:

Bird Watching, Wildlife Viewing, Shelling, Baseball Park (Pt Charlotte)

Golf:

Certainly Rotonda West is the golfers’ heaven with 5 golf courses actually in Rotonda. The villa has views towards the 5th green of the Long Marsh Golf Course and there are also many more golf courses to choose from only a short drive away.
