"A great base for a family holiday"
Our first time in South West Florida and this was an ideal place to stay. Great sized rooms, all the things a home should have plus wifi as a bonus! We loved the pool and lanai. The bedrooms were a… More

"A tranquil setting - great for nature lovers and golfers!"
We chose to stay at Rotonda West because it is located on a nature preserve (great for me because I love wildlife watching!) with some good golf courses within easy reach (great for my partner, who loves to play golf!).
And we are so glad that we chose this villa, it is in such a tranquil setting. It was like a 'home from home' for us as it had everything we needed, and more, to make our stay a comfortable one.
We spent most of our time out in the lanai, enjoying the pool and relaxing on the loungers. We used the kitchen most nights to cook our evening meal, buying our groceries from the Publix supermarket, about a ten minutes drive away.
The air conditioning and fans were quiet and worked very well. We also appreciated the ice and water dispenser on the outside of the fridge!
Sharon was most helpful during the booking process and we were provided with a useful information pack beforehand. We visited some of the beaches recommended and agree that Englewood Beach had the best sunset! We visited Farlowes restaurant and I sampled the voodoo juice, which was an experience! We also visited Harpoon Harry's in Punta Gorda and would definitely recommend the Key Lime Pie! We would also recommend Babcock's Wilderness Adventures and the Myakka River State Park as two worthwhile excursions. Also, the Warm Mineral Springs at North Port (if it is still open - it was under threat of closure at the time of our visit).We both got our holiday fixes - my partner, his fill of golf and me, my wildlife watching!
All in all, a great place to stay - we would definitely recommend and plan to return in the not too distant future!

"Beautiful villa in a wonderful location"
Firstly the villa itself is superb: spacious, very clean and tidy, well appointed and would have been more than big enough for the maximum of 6 people. Modern appliances which all worked well, garage amply big enough for a full-size American car (we had a Chevrolet Impala), very effective (and quiet) air-con. Lovely pool and lanai, we spent quite a lot of time relaxing there with a book and a drink. It's located roughly two and a half hours drive from Orlando International airport though we actually drove across from the Atlantic coast a few days after arriving in Florida. I chose to ignore the last part of the route which my Tom Tom picked and came off I75 at the exit described in the written route details provided by the owner, and in fact having done this my Tom Tom chose exactly the route which they described.
The location within Rotonda West was also excellent, the pool side of the villa faces south-west and in March was getting the sun from mid-morning all the way through to sun-set. The deed-controlled community itself is very pleasant, quiet and well maintained, very little street-lighting which for me was a plus as it made for dark skies: excellent for star-gazing.
There is a shopping plaza within a few minutes drive with a Publix supermarket and liquor store, a few other shops and a petrol station, we did almost all of our shopping here. There's another Publix slightly further away in Placida and another a little further away again in North Port close to a large Wal*Mart, Ross, Bells outlet and others, plus Perkins, Applebees and Chillis. Port Charlotte is an easy drive if you want a larger mall.
The main reason for coming to the Gulf Coast is of course the beaches. Englewood beach is roughly 15 minutes drive away and has ample parking and facilities, if you want something quieter then from there you can reach Stump Pass beach, Blind Pass Beach and a little further north is Manasota Beach. We particularly enjoyed these latter three, all have miles and miles of clean white and the Gulf Of Mexico on one side of the barrier and the quiet waters of Lemon Bay on the others. There's no shortage of boat and kayak hire and organised boat tours if that's what you want: we were happy to park, walk through the nature trails and then relax on the beach for a couple of hours before returning to the villa. We also ventured further north to Venice and on from there into Sarasota.
There's plenty of local restaurants, but on this trip we didn't actually try any of them, that can wait until next time then :) Overall this was the most enjoyable and relaxing stay we've had in Florida. You'll definitely need a car as nothing is actually on your doorstep but by the same token nothing is more than a short drive away and I'd gladly exchange the extra cost of a rental on the coast for a short drive to this fabulous villa in a lovely inland location.
Highyl recommended then, and a special mention to Steve and Sharon Eagle for being very helpful and obliging as we made the booking.

"Home from home"
The villa is well located for shops, golf courses, restaurants, beaches and entertainment.
We enjoyed our stay at the villa,it was very comfortable and probably one of the best furnished, cleanest and tidiest rental we have stayed in over the years in Rotonda. It was nice to find some packets and jars of food left in the kitchen cupboards as our previous rental removed everything even the salt and pepper.
A pleasant quiet location perfect for sunbathing during the day and watching the beautiful Florida sunset in the evening.

"Very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable in lovely, quiet area."
Lovely villa in a quiet area looking onto one of the local canals with great wildlife and close to five golf courses. Not far from the beautiful quiet beaches at Englewood where you are spoilt for choice of boat hire and cruises and plenty of excellent local retaurants with good food to suit any budget. Closer than you think to Port Charlotte with its shopping mall and historic harbour area and local State parks.
