Rotonda West Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful fully air conditioned three en-suite bedroom villa, newly built in early 2005, is situated in Rotonda West on the Cape Haze peninsula, an area of unspoiled natural beauty and tranquility. Beautiful white sandy beaches provide sunbathing, swimming and beachcombing. There are five championship golf courses on Rotonda alone, and the whole area is classified as a bird sanctuary, with frequent appearances of native birds such as osprey, herons, pelicans, bald eagles, kingfishers, red cardinals and even a friendly wood stork is known to pay our villa a visit!

Boating and fishing are extremely popular, with various charter agencies offering a variety of fishing adventures. Indeed Boca Grande provides Florida's finest and greatest tarpon fishing and great small fishing. Fishing licences can be purchased locally. There is an abundance of fishing waters including the Gasparilla Sound Aquatic Prserve and many inland coastal waterways in the area, together with two local fishing piers. Dolphin and manatee sighting cruises are also available in the area.

Retail therapy is well catered for, with Port Charlotte shopping mall only 10 minutes away. Exclusive St Armand's Circle at Sarasota is a must, and north of Sarasota the Ellenton shopping mall offers designer labels at great prices.

Why Debbie Welton chose Rotonda West

Having visited and fell in love with the area in 2003, we achieved an ambition of building a wonderful holiday villa that we could truly call a second home.

What makes this villa unique

The many wonderful beaches, the fishing and boating and the myriad of wildlife. And of course relaxing by the pool with a good book.

Most amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tim & Debbie for such a wonderful villa. It was beyond our expectations, lots of room for the six of us and the pool area was fabulous. We had such a great time exploring the local area and your advice on beaches, places to eat and things to do was invaluable. Would highly recommend Boca Grande, Siesta Key and hiring a boat st Stump Pass Marina. The kids loved seeing lots of dolphins and the beaches were fantastic for snorkelling; we found crabs and starfish amongst other sea life. Perfect holiday in a perfect villa, will book longer next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for your lovely review. Although you only booked a week or so before your holiday, it sounds like you managed to pack a lot into your time in Rotonda. We are pleased that you took the opportunity to visit many of the places we recommended to you, and of course you will have to come back to Villa Picasso again for a longer holiday to see more of this wonderful area.

Englewood revisited

  • 5 of 5

We haven't stayed in Rotonda for 6 years and had forgotten how unique the location is for wildlife. This lovely villa is located in probably one of the nicest areas of Rotonda and offers both comfort and tranquillity.

A well thought out and appointed property, that just adds to the feel of a quality destination

The only downside, is that you have to leave.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed previously at several very good properties in Rotonda, but this villa is our new favourite. We agree with the other recent reviews - excellent in all respects, particularly cleanliness, the oversized deck and pool with a good solar heating system and the quality of the furniture and fittings. Debbie and Tim were also very helpful and quick to respond to queries.

Recent vacation

Photographs cannot show how beautiful this villa is, we were bowled over. Location, cleanliness, presentation, pool, everything about it was superb. It was easily the nicest villa we have stayed in. It is perfect for relaxation, the beaches are stunning and the peace and quiet make it ideal if you need the chill out. Debbie and Tim provide a comprehensive list of beaches, restaurants and shopping venues that we have used and have found extremely informative. Best part of our holiday was to rent a boat, see beaches that were not normally accessible, and see wildlife that you would not normally get to see close up and personal. A fabulous place to base your holiday. Already booked for next year. Thank you Tim and Debbie.
