About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Built in 2006, this fabulous “Edgewater” home was a top of the range builder’s model until July 2008. Built on an extended lot the villa offers 3000 square feet of air conditioned space and the overwhelming impression is of light, space and quality. With three bedrooms and a study (complete with internet access) it has been finished to the highest standard. Furnished throughout in a contemporary style with clean lines, this house offers chic and stylish living - Italian leather sofas, Scandinavian dining and beautiful tailor made drapes in every room.

The kitchen has been designed with rich cherry wood units, stainless steel appliances and black granite work surfaces. A separate utility room houses the washer and dryer. Outside, the extended deck will delight sun worshipers while the extra large lanai offers shade and ample space for al fresco dining from the gas barbecue. Add a beautiful pool and spa (with electric heating for the cooler days of winter) and you have all the essential ingredients for a relaxing holiday home.

The location too has lots to offer. The beautiful white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are only 8 miles from your door and the community of Rotonda offers no less than 5 championship golf courses. In the spacious 3 car garage you will find two sets of good quality golf clubs together with beach chairs for your use. Cape Haze is an area of unspoilt natural beauty and boating and fishing are extremely popular. Boca Grande provides Florida’s finest tarpon fishing and various charter agencies can offer water sports to suit all levels and interests.

Fishing piers, boat / jet ski hire and dolphin and manatee cruises are all available minutes from home. Eating out is casual but there is a wide range of restaurant styles and more than enough variety to offer an alternative to the poolside barbecue. Retail therapy is well catered for with Port Charlotte mall only 15 minutes away. For a wider range of shopping Sarasota offers everything from the exclusive shops of St Armand’s Circle to the Ellenton Shopping outlet with designer labels at great prices. The resorts of Fort Myers and Naples are within easy reach to the south.

This villa has everything you would expect in a luxury property. The master bedroom with king size bed has an en suite bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and Roman shower. Bedroom two with a king size bed and bedroom three with a queen bed share the family bathroom with two wash basins and a large walk in shower. There are flat screen TVs in the lounge and master bedroom offering cable television while the study has internet access for your use.

We are delighted to offer this property new to the rental market from September 2008 to non smoking guests.

About Brian and Marilyn Ewing

living in St Andrews Scotland we are keen golfers and this home allows us access to the best of Florida golf and to the finest of beaches.

A million miles away from the buzz of Orlando theme parks, it provides a soothing and relaxed way of life.

The perfect antidote to our frenetic lifestyle.

Brian and Marilyn Ewing purchased this villa in 2008

Why Brian and Marilyn Ewing chose Rotonda West

Having vacationed here for twenty years, we chose to buy here because of all the area has to offer and because the house itself is in an idyllic location and has been furnished by us to a very high standard.

What makes this villa unique

As sun worshipers (we don't always get warm weather in St Andrews!) we designed the pool area to have the best possible sundeck area and lanai. The caged pool area is far bigger than most and the heated pool and spa are always inviting no matter the season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have appreciated our time in your beautiful home.

It was secure and relaxing,and with the pool, spa,bikes, golfing, beaches and shopping we made a very good choice and received an excellent service from the hosts!

Thank you and see you next year.

The Perfect Vacaion Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 month stay at this wonderful property. It is beautifully furnished, spacious, and meticulously maintained. Everything is top of the line. We have been searching for the perfect vacation rental for 8 years and finally found it. Everything you could possibly want and need is provided. It is located close to golf courses (5 in the community), beaches, (Englewood Beach and the beaches at Boca Grand are a short drive), shopping and wonderful restaurants. The pool and lanai are spacious and great for lounging on a "lazy day". Cannot say enough about this property - you must see is to believe it! We look forward to many more vacations at this exceptional property.

A really fun holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here. My daughter and boyfriend joined us and everyone enjoyed themselves. There were plenty of activities for all ages! The house and pool were beautiful and well appointed. There were golf clubs, biles and tennis rackets available for us to use thus saving the bother of having to hire. We had lots of fun round the pool and many enjoyable evenings with the BBQ.

The house is handy for the beach, watersports golf, restaurants and shopping outlets.

Hopefully we will return before long

A Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home. The pictures just don't do it justice. We fell in love with it the moment we stepped inside. The home is impeccably clean and well appointed. We had such fun in the pool each day. It is very close to beaches and dining. It will not disappoint!!

Beautiful , beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Great location , a very beautiful , comfortable vacation home . Minutes away fro Boca Grande and Englewood beaches . Fun to search for sharks teeth on the beaches. great restaurants near by ..... really loved Farlowe's and Nicola's Really enjoyed the amenities of the house... great pool and hot tub .... super kitchen and dinning areas . Took a day to figure out Rotonda . It's easy to get lost until you realize that eventually you come to the boulevard or a circle road that puts you right back on track. Very quite community, neighbours are all super friendly , golf is close by,and walking opportunities are endless. Brian and Marilyn were just super to deal with . They were very keen on making sure everything was taken care of to ensure the perfect vacation. They were quick to respond and communicate when needed. We would return in a heart beat .

Stress Free Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home offers a perfect place to enjoy sun and sand. Located 20 minutes from two different beaches and within steps of your own pool and hot tub; it is the best of both worlds. You also have plenty of time to enjoy both on a daily basis. I especially like the beaches at Boca Grande and it is well worth the fee for the toll bridge. Try the Pink Elephant at the Gasparilla Inn for lunch.

The furnishings are lovely and the rooms are easy to navigate. Kitchen is well equipped and has easy access to the grill outdoors. Perfect whether you want coffee in the morning, or seafood for your evening meal. There are no steps to climb and there is easy access from the garage.

We found plenty of towels, including beach towels, beach chairs, and the pool area is equipped with plenty of seating and a dining table with four chairs for eating outside.

There are many restaurants to choose from, but several of our favorites were: Zydeco and Villa Capri in Placida, and the Captain's Table in Port Charlotte Harbor. You might consider taking a scenic sunset boat ride while here, or save it for another day as it is not a long drive.

We also enjoyed our membership at the Y in Englewood and while my husband used the free standing equipment I took several different classes.

Keep in mind that there are at least five golf courses in proximity to where we stayed, and my husband made good use of these facilities.

There is a park nearby which offers tennis and walking trails and is easy to navigate.

Publix and Winn Dixie are each within a ten minute drive and various other services are well within driving distance.

Don't forget that the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg is an hour away and well worth the time.

Owners are very gracious and easy to work with. We shall return
