This is a unique property, very large & roomy, with three US-King sized master on suites (ideal for 3 couples sharing), three lounges & large kitchen. Unlike most rental villas, the bedrooms do not simply open from a central lounge area. Friends and families sharing can enjoy space apart as well as time together!
Although constructed as a 5 bed, 4000 sq ft luxury villa, ‘The Palms’ has been professionally furnished as a large 4 bed for up to 8 discerning guests. It will appeal to those seeking a much grander than the typical 2000-2500 sq ft home. It has a large south-facing pool and deck area, not overlooked, within half an acre of beautiful, landscaped gardens. The home stands on an over sized corner lot. We also own the lot behind the house which is fenced and grassed for extra privacy.
Situated 1/4 mile in from the busy Rotonda Circle, in a quite, select residential area. Six golf courses within a couple of minutes drive. Wireless b/b, cable to all 6 TVs. Main lounge has HD Cable with 65" HD flat-screen. Channels include HBO & Netflix.
This property is our own Florida home for 4 months per year, not just a rental, and, as such, has been fully outfitted with everything we would want and need for comfort and enjoyment.
Semi-retired, we run an office and industrial rental business in the North West of the UK. We have been visiting Florida (and the USA generally) for over 25 years. We have several trips to Florida each year, spending a total of approx four months at our home.
Peter & Pam Hewitt purchased this villa in 2005
We bought this property due to its size and location. It has four separate a/c zones. The pool area is very large and private facing South/South East. The pool is bigger than most. The home is situated in a quiet, residential area away from the busy Rotonda main roads. We chose the Rotonda area as it is centrally located on the beautiful west coast of Florida. The beaches on the chain of barrier islands stretch from Naples to our south, including Captiva, Sanibel, Boca Grande, our own Manasota Key (Englewood Beach) and then north with Venice Beach, Casey Key, Siesta Key and onward to Sarasota and Anna Maria Island. Our central location allows easy access to all of these and more.
You will not find a better outfitted home. Three of the beds are American King Size (larger than a UK Super-King), all with en-suite bathrooms, and are super-comfortable - Ideal for 2 or 3 couple sharing the home
So pleased with our choice! Great communication in all areas. House was lovely and everything there we needed. Loved the location, real Florida so much more than theme parks, we even saw an armadillo pottering around outside, so peaceful. Local beach ( Englewood )15 mins drive stunning. Shopping and cinema Port Charlotte 20 mins drive and fabulous Punta Gorda fisher men's village for pretty shops and boat tours 30mins. A wonderful holiday of hot sunshine, stunning scenery, friendly people and home comforts. Top tip - take a sat nav to save going round in circles! Thank you Peter - highly recommended!
I was a bit worried about booking this house because it had only one review, but since we needed a house with two master bedrooms and the choice was limited I put my doubts aside and booked it anyway. This was an excellent decision, as we found a most comfortable, clean and well-maintained house. There is not one single thing I could complain about. The house is incredibly big and has three bedrooms with kingsize beds, which is very rare. The pool area is very nice, with six matching soft-cushioned sunbeds and eight equally matching chairs, a gas BBQ and the big sparkling blue pool with hot tub. We enjoyed every moment at the house.
The kitchen as well as the rest of the house are very well equipped, there is plenty of china, pots, glasses, cutlery, towels beach chairs, umbrellas etc. Communication with the owners was very smooth and efficient and our security deposit was refunded within a week of our return.
We felt as comfortable as at home and we would stay there again anytime and would certainly recommend this house to family and friends.
we've rented many homes in florida over the years and this home is far and away the nicest.peter and pam have gone above and beyond tooutfit this villa with high end furnishings and great beds.all the appliances and cutlery dishes etc. are beyond what any rental we have had.the pool area and hot tub was the focal point of our holiday and was perfect .if your looking for a awesome house and owners who communicate with their guests in a prompt and courteous manner treat yourself to this home
Rotonda is situated on the Cape Haze peninsular west of Charlotte harbour, between Venice & Sarasota to the North and Naples to the South. From the air, it appears to be a perfect circle, two miles from the coast and about three miles in diameter. It is divided by its canals and infrastructure into eight segments, with a blend of high-calibre homes, lakes, golf courses and green belt. Voted amongst the top 10 ‘best places to live in the USA’, this area is a great base to explore the real Florida, providing easy access to the towns of Venice, Sarasota, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Naples and The Everglades. Tampa and Busch Gardens are an hour and a half to the north. Orlando and the many other theme parks, such as Disneyworld and Universal Studios, are 2.5 hours drive. Often visitors choose a hectic 2 or 3 day trip away to the Orlando theme parks before returning again to unwind and relax. Enjoy the year-long warm climate and waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Kick back & relax
