Our beautiful family villa offers luxurious comfort and tranquility among the woodlands, waterways and golf courses in the deed restricted community of Rotonda West close to both Englewood and Port Charlotte on Florida’s South West Coast. This area of Florida is widely referred to as ‘Florida’s Best Kept Secret‘ and voted ‘Best Place to live in the South’ by ‘Money Magazine’ several times as well as one of the overall top five ‘Best places to live in America’.

Rotonda is approximately 1.5 hours south of Tampa, equidistant from the cities of Sarasota to the north and Fort Myers to the south. From a bird’s eye view, Rotonda West is a perfect circle surrounded by a river and divided into subdivisions, one of which is a nature reserve providing habitat for the region’s wilder occupants.Rotonda has lakes in abundance, canals, golf courses and greenbelt areas allowing superb balance and harmony with nature.

Guests will enjoy luxury facilities and privacy in this spacious 3-bedroom home, tastefully furnished and immaculately maintained. The open plan ‘great room’ is the central heart of the villa, with its cathedral ceiling and comfortable seating in the carpeted lounge area. A large screen fibre-optics technology TV with integral DVR and a DVD/VCR player provide on-line entertainment together with a well-stocked bookcase and various games. The formal dining area has seating for six. All bedrooms are carpeted, have walk-in closets plus ample drawer storage. Both bathrooms and all other non-carpeted areas have high quality ceramic floor tiles. The master suite has a king-size bed, interactive TV, telephone and bathroom with a large jacuzzi bath and huge walk-in shower. The well equipped kitchen has high quality granite countertops,a small breakfast table with chairs together with a breakfast bar with 3 high backed upholstered stools and contains everything required to prepare a gourmet meal or just heat up a pizza.

About Margaret Gaunt

We live in Peterborough in the UK and had our home built in 2005 after being invited to spend a couple of weeks with friends at their property in Rotonda, and fell in love with the area – so much so that we bought the plot there and then! The appeal of winter sunshine, ‘dry’ golf and walking on the pristine beaches was too much to resist.

Previously we had visited Florida only once when our boys were younger – staying in the Orlando area, and were unaware of the beautiful areas further south.

Margaret Gaunt purchased this villa in 2006

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything they say it is and more. Extremely clean, decorated beautifully and the pool is outstanding. Location is quiet, yet easy to get to the main events in the area. The beaches here are beautiful. So many different beaches to explore. It is one of our best experiences! If we could give it a ten, we would.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed all aspects of the home - it ideally suited our 4 person family (with 2 children). Appreciated the cleanliness and good repair of all items - as well as quiet neighborhood and community playground within walking distance. Thanks very much for sharing your home - and taking such good care of it. Also, enjoyed the heated pool very much - it is a very nice size.

Quiet, Private Plenty of Sun, Great Pool

  • 4 of 5

A great highlight was the early morning visit in the back yard of three teenage bobcats who stopped to check us out as we enjoyed our breakfast. As we enjoy boating on the Gulf we were able to park the boat in the garage - fast and easy access to launch. Many good area restaurants, especially enjoy Pink Elephant and South Beach Grill on Boca Grande.

This is the seventh time we have rented in Rotonda and it was certainly our most pleasant experience. We cannot say enough about this home which is beautifully decorated, comfortable, well-equipped and extremely clean. We were welcomed with a personal note and bottle of wine upon arrival after our long drive. We loved the large southwest facing pool, especially on those cooler days. In addition to sunbathing by the pool or beach, our family enjoys playing tennis. Rotonda Haven is perfectly situated within Rotonda Circle so that we could walk, rather than drive, to the park to play tennis. Margaret was wonderful to deal with and can't wait to return to this lovely villa.

Truly a wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week with our two children ( 11 and 8 ) and as soon as we arrived in the Villa, we all felt releived. It is as nice as all the pictures. Super clean, lots on linens that we did not have to bring. Everything for the beach, and what about that pool. Rotonda is also well situated. Boca Grande beach and Siesta Key or a must see. Thanks a again for your Villa, we had a fantastic time there.

Sunshine, Comfort & Golf

  • 5 of 5

Sunshine, a comfortable place to stay and lots of golf close by.....who could ask for more. We have been vacationing in this part of Florida for a few years now and this is the first home we have stayed that we want to return to again. The owners of this property are fabulous to deal with and they definately care about the comfort of their guests. The home was clean and very well maintained plus comfortable beds.

We feel we have provided a comprehensive range of facilities but if guests feel anything has been omitted we would like to hear from them. The laundry facilities are found in the separate utility room and therefore don't clutter up the kitchen area. The whole of the lanai/pool area is enclosed within a screened 'bug free' environment providing recreational and 'al fresco' dining comfort.
