We first visited the Englewood area over 15 years ago and fell in love with it's beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants and relaxed way of life. We later bought a piece of land and had this property built to a very good specification. The villa is now our families 2nd home, which between us we use 2 or 3 times a year. This means we can keep it in great condition by taking care of some of the small jobs that are sometimes over-looked by rental agents. As a family, we enjoy socializing, eating out and boating. We have a local management agent a few minutes away who provide a very personal service and look after our rental guests to make sure they are comfortable in their surroundings and assist if they need help or advice.
We love Florida, but certain areas can be very commercial and crowded which is the very reason we built our Florida home in Englewood. This is an oasis of tranquillity, with all the amenities, such as lovely sandy beaches, restaurants, golf , water sports and shopping etc just a very short drive away, the area has improved the local services with new supermarkets, restaurants etc but it still retains its peaceful charm
The villa is in a lovely residential area where everything is kept , as you would expect, pristine.
For the convenience of everyone staying at the property it has 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, great lakeside outlook and of course its own private pool, not always found when renting. So you can just laze on the pool deck and watch the numerous wild life, or go exploring with the many amenities close by .
This is the second time we have stayed in Rotunda although the first time at this villa. It is likely that we will return again to both. The villa is in a nice quiet, peaceful and private location with various wildlife all around. It is ideally situated for some great beaches, shopping, restaurants, golf and so much more. If you want to experience the real Florida then this is a great place to do it from. The villa was very comfortable with all the amenities you need and the pool is the best one we have ever had in our many visits to Florida villas. Also the service from enquiry to booking to staying and then leaving was simple, effective, efficient, professional and friendly. We encountered one little thing that was not working and happened to mention it and although it had no impact on our stay the matter was resolved the very next day. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa. I am sure you will not be disappointed
Fantastic 3 bedroom villa with private pool. This villa was exceptionally clean and had all modern conveniences. Close to many spectacular beaches and restaurants. We used it as a complete chill out after a busy 2 weeks at the parks. Lots of beautiful wild life, Bob cat, snake to name but a few. Would definately recommend!
From first opening the front door you knew you had chosen the right villa to holiday in. Clean bright and fresh. Very spacious inside and out. Decent size pool and lanai area around. Beautiful view out back across grass to water way, so not overlooked. Property is in excellent condition. Nice quiet area with warm and welcoming neighbours. Plenty to do in the area and eateries to satisfy anyones tastes. Highly recommend to anyone. Will be definitely returning.

This is a perfect place to relax and visit the beaches and surrounding area, or just chill out by the pool. The villa was lovely and more spacious than indicated by the pictures. It was also very well equipped and we had everything we needed for our family with teenage children. The pool was very clean and everything was well maintained. The villa also looked welcoming when we arrived and the area felt safe and secure, so we immediately felt at home. If we return to Florida we will definitely check if this villa is available and would have no hesitation in recommending it.
I had the privilege of staying at this wonderful property for a week at the end of March with my family. The property itself is scrupulously clean, very well maintained and is fully equipped. The property is located in a residential area that is just so peaceful but is only a 10 minute drive to supermarkets, shops and restaurants. There are some fantastic beaches 10 to 15 minutes away, we visited a different beach every day and can recommend Blind Pass Beach, Stump Pass Beach and Manesota State Park. There is wildlife in abundance. If you want to relax and get away from I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa with its lovely pool.
Villa extremely clean and well maintained. A good area once you got to grips with the road system.
Good area to visit many local beaches, we liked Gasparilla Island ( a charge for entry, but well worth it) We also enjoyed Stump pass beach and Englewood beach wher we saw dolphins each time we visited.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the neighbourhood and felt very safe.
Many local supermarkets to choose from only 10 mins away from the villa. We sampled many good local restaurants.
Thank you for letting us share your home for two weeks. We will try to return soon.
