|Minimum Stay||7 - 28 nights|
Lakeside House is located on Rotonda and has recently been furnished, so it is a very new home. Loved for its peaceful setting backing onto a lake with no immediate buildings on either side. It's the perfect 'chill' holiday home! Lakeside House has a beautiful extra large 'L' shaped pool with a waterfall and the large deck and cage have been extended to increase the views of the fantastic lake at the back of the house. We have a comprehensive guide in the house with suggestions for some of our favourite restaurants, where to shop, location of some of the best beaches, where to find sports activities and generally how to enjoy our home to the full!
Dear Julian and Beverley,
Thank you for returning our deposit so promptly.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and your villa was very nicely presented, one of the best we have stayed in.
We have stayed in various villas on Rotonda in recent years and Lakeside House was the best we have come across. We will certainly have you on the top of our list if we are wanting to stay in the area again.
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.
As the title suggests, having holidayed in Rotonda many times, this is the best villa we've stayed in. Very clean, private, peaceful and overlooking a lake, it ticked every box for us. We loved it.
After our wonderful experience last year we returned this year. Once again, the villa was immaculate. The villa is furnished to a very high standard. Sitting by the pool watching out for wildlife in and around the lake (e.g. alligators and bobcats) is as relaxing as it gets. We loved our daily bike rides (3 adult bikes in the garage). The villa's location is excellent: 15 mins drive to Boca Grande beach; 15 mins drive from Englewood beach (and the fantastic adjacent Stump Pass - my wife saw a manatee and a dolphin); and 15 mins from Port Charlotte (kids love the cinema and the clothes shopping). Lots of information in the villa on where to go and where to eat. All the restaurant suggestions were very good. The Fishery restaurant has the best view. All being well, we will be back again in 2015. The best villa we have stayed in (we have been holidaying in Florida for the last 14 years).
Excellent holiday home which we would recommend to all. Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Outside lanai and pool area was very well used and many a lovely hour was spent watching the local wildlife i.e. woodpeckers, ospreys, an eagle and a couple of alligators and terrapins added to our delight. Short drive to local beaches where excellent seafood restaurants can be found. All in all one of the best villas we have had over the past 20 years.
We (myself, husband, son, daughter and mother) rented this villa as we were attending a family wedding in Florida and wanted to combine the wedding celebrations with our two week holiday.
The villa was very spacious, clean and well-maintained. It was also well equipped and the poolside area with barbeque was a great bonus. The location is great as it is both private and peaceful but a car is definitely needed in order to get around. A great holiday was had by all - although we never spotted any alligators! I would recommend this villa to others, thank you.
We had 6 wonderful weeks here. We have stayed at 5 other houses at Rotonda West and this has the best view from the lanai. The wildlife was in abundance, even an eagle came and checked us out in the pool one day. The accommodation is extremely comfortable with a beautiful pool.
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.
