Beautiful Villa

This is a beautiful well kept villa, one of the nicest we've ever stayed in during our 25 years of visiting Florida. The nearby beaches are lovely and a nice change from the frantic pace of Orlando and the 'mouse'. If you like 'nature' you can't go wrong with this villa, being right on a nature reserve and close to several canals. The villa itself is large and comfortable and would easily accommodate two families with plenty of room for everyone. Derek, the owner is very easy to deal with and provides plenty of information about the area. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

The Nicest Home we have rented for Winter Vacation

THANK YOU Derek and Wendy. Your home is beautifully decorated and furnished. It lacks nothing in the line of pots, pans and utensils. More than adequate bch towels and linens. We were happy to see a bobcat on 3 occasions and alligators in the lake. It was so relaxing to sit on the lani to listen and watch the many birds who frequent the area. The pool was nicely heated and we made good use of it. Before we left we were sure to have our vacation home booked for 2014. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL..

Christmas Break Rotonda

We were very satisfied with the accommodations during our 10 day stay in Rotonda. The house was very clean and well maintained. The layout of the house was great with kitchen and family room centrally located and two main bedrooms on the opposite ends of the house. The location of the house was private, the pool very nice and the lanai very specious and well equipped. The owners are very nice, easy to deal with and helpful. For us the best beach was on Gasparilla Island, the $6 bridge fee is well worth the visit. Boca Grande is charming and great place to visit on the way to the beach.

Further details outdoors

The pool area is fully equipped with sunbeds, a large table and 8 chairs for alfresco dining, it looks out down the meandering canal and the nature reserve, it should be noted there are no further properties to the right of the villa, you do not feel as though you are diving into next doors swimming pool which adds to the privacy. Being close to the nature reserve ensures a variety of birds including, eagles, egrets and herons, regularly fly overhead. We have even had bobcats walking across our back garden, it was amazing I nearly dropped my coffee !!!!

We have a Gas BBQ and 4 bikes if you feel like some exercise.

The Southwest Gulf Coast region

Pine Valley is located within the Rotonda on the South West coast of Florida in Charlotte County, often referred to as Florida's hidden secret, or the real Florida. It is near the beachside town of Englewood on the Gulf of Mexico. The International Airports of Tampa (1.5 hours) and Fort Myers (1 hour) provide easy access to this area.

Englewood has over 27 miles of white sandy beaches, many of which are almost deserted during the week. With Manasota Key to the North and Boca Grande to the South, our villa is perfectly located 15 - 20 mins drive to these fabulous beaches where pelicans fly overhead and dolphins swim in the sea. Englewood is one of the last parts of the Florida coastline to be discovered and is being developed on strict guidelines. Nearby Port Charlotte caters for all those craving retail therapy with a large Mall, whilst the Outlet Malls of Sarasota are 50 mins drive away.

With Naples to the south and Sarasota to the North our villa is ideally placed to visit these lovely areas of the Gulf Coast

Rotonda West

Pine Valley is located within the Rotonda on the South West coast of Florida in Charlotte County,

Rotonda consists of many beautiful homes, which have been built on large lots amidst natural lakes, canals and golf courses. Many Americans and Canadians have made this area their home and you will be staying in a quiet and peaceful residential community. Which is also home to an array of Florida wildlife including pigs, raccoons, bobcats, turtles, alligators and a variety of birds. A nature reserve and conservation area has been maintained in the centre of the Rotonda, where you can get close to 'Real Florida'.

With stunning beaches, fantastic wildlife, golf, and an array of attractions nearby, surrounded by numerous restaurants and excellent shopping opportunities, our villa is ideally situated to enjoy all this area has to offer. Everything you would need is closeby
