A little piece of paradise
Lakeside Villa has an incredible view of the lake, wetlands and wildlife, which adds to the relaxation and calming affect of time spent at this wonderful vacation home. The pool deck is expansive and conducive to bird watching, alligator sightings and if you're lucky like we were, the elusive bobcat and her cub walked right along the shore in eye sight! And did I mention "catching" rays and entertaining, Amazing! The amenities are top notch and the property is very well maintained. It's a great home and would be comfortable for families, two to three couples, or a group of friends interested in a boating, golfing or beach vacation as the location is central to all of that and to some of the world's most beautiful white sand beaches. And the turquoise color of the water changes by the minute. Glorious! There's a great selection of restaurants in the area from Italian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Seafood, diners and cafes, and dress code is casual. The town of Englewood is charming and has quaint shops and good restaurants too. We would highly recommend this property and the owners, Bevereley and Julian, were a pleasure to deal with.
Thank you so much for a lovely review. Reading it felt as if we had written it! We feel very much the same about the house and the area. We really appreciate you taking the time to review your stay and are sure it will help future guests to understand what our home and the area have to offer.
Best property to stay
This place is absolutely amazing. We stayed for 10 days. We brought food from Aldi so we can cook in the beautiful kitchen and the grill outside by the pool. We enjoyed the pool in the morning and the night. This place is very relaxing and comfortable. I would definitely come back to his property.
Lovely Property with a Great View!
We just returned from a month long stay at Lakeside House. The house itself is large, airy, and well equipped. The master and guest rooms are on opposite sides of the house which offers great privacy if multiple couples are sharing the space. The property shows the love and care of its owners, Beverley and Julian. The location, overlooking a small lake and near the conservation area, afforded many views of wildlife including raccoons, bobcats, many species of birds, and of course, the resident alligator (who is quite large).
We have stayed in Rotonda often during the past 8 years and this is the first rental to which we will be booking a return visit.
Thank you so much for reviewing our home. Recent reviews are very important to future guests and it's wonderful to see how much you enjoyed your stay. We do love our home and spend as much time as we can there. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back in 2018.
Spectacular lakeside villa
A lovely villa with great views overlooking a lake. We found the villa very clean and tidy with all the necessary equipment to make for a very enjoyable stay. Rotonda is a very friendly community and overall a good location for exploring the Gulf Coast. The owners were extremely helpful, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend to anyone.
Thank you so much for your review. We try really hard to offer guests a comfortable, welcoming home for their stay, whether they want to explore or just enjoy the house and pool. We both hope that if you decide to come back to this area, you stay with us again. You would be extremely welcome!
Lovely quiet property with lovely views
Lovely property very peaceful and relaxing , very clean and homely.
We visited Lemon Bay Park very natural and relaxing,played golf at Rotonda good price and course in good condition.
Thank you so much for taking time to review your stay. We were really pleased to be able to share our home with you. You were so lucky with the weather! It has been a lovely winter apart from the odd cold snap!
Very appealing and well kept property
We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeside, being in a quite and peaceful location overlooking the lake at the rear so watching out for the local wildlife was a daily
routine over breakfast ! The house was very comfortable and well kept. The local beach at Englewood was very accessable with a nice board walk and we enjoyed Boca Grande and riding around in a golf cart. Altogether enjoyable and well recommended.
The nearest beaches are about 15 minutes drive, but with beaches to the west and the south, you will want to try different beaches. They are beautifully clean and some have small fossilised sharks teeth which wash up in the surf - a major change to shell hunting!
Tampa International is about 1hr 40mins from the house. It's a easy drive and closer than Orlando which is 2hrs 30mins, or Miami which is just over 3 hrs. Many guests now fly into RSW (Ft Myers) which is just an hour from the house. It means a change for most travellers in the US, but it's a lovely smaller airport and a popular arrival point with owners and guests! A car here is essential.
Almost everything is 15 minutes drive time! Port Charlotte, the baseball, the island of Boca Grande and some of the beaches! Food shops are on the 3 Rotonda exits, you have a Winn Dixie on the north exit and Publix at both the east and west exits. The 776 which takes you to the beaches has a 24 hour Walmart foodstore and just beyond that is a Sweetbay which has a larger selection of organic goods.
Our home has a comprehensive in-house guide to help guests to find their way around this wonderful area.
