The Southwest Gulf Coast region
The gulf coast of Florida boasts near perfect weather and breezes coming from the Gulf of Mexico can be described as natural air conditioning.
No doubt about it, if you enjoy beautiful, quiet and unspoilt beaches and islands, there are many within 10 minutes to an hour of your holiday home which will certainly not disappoint you.
With unspoilt alabaster beaches, exotic wildlife and lush subtropical foliage, South West Florida combines the sophistication of a pampered island resort with the relaxed style of Old Florida. Activities include: watersports, great sailing / boating, deep sea fishing, picnic and BBQ.
Tampa with it's theme park at Busch Gardens, fine dining, shops, restaurants and beaches is just 90mins north. Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World in Orlando is a 2.5 hour drive as is Miami and the Everglades
Wildlife abounds everywhere: Osprey, Pelicans, Ibis, Egrets,Turkey Vultures are all common sites. Bald Eagles, Alligators, Racoons, Armadillos, Turtles can also be seen. Dolphins can often be spotted swimming in the ocean off the beaches.
Rotonda is a quiet and relaxed area of South West Florida with nearby beautiful beaches and golf courses. Boating and fishing abound in this area and Rotonda itself is built around a canal system where wildlife is plentiful.
This particular area of Florida is blessed with high class public and private golf courses, with several excellent courses within a short drive of the house, one of which is located at the rear of the property.
Watersports and fishing close by - each year the tarpon game fish gather in the Boca Pass and offer great sport to both local and international anglers. The competitions are held just offshore and spectators get a marvellous view of the boats from one of the lighthouses situated at the waters edge.
Hire a boat and explore the inter coastal waterways down to Punta Gorda or up to Venice. Alternatively, charter a boat and skipper to take you out into the Gulf to catch Marlin. Beautiful white sandy beaches galore! Local shops/supermarkets less than 5 minutes drive away including Winn Dixie/Publix.
Shopping - Port Charlotte has it's own mall and Venice, which is just a few miles up the road has some very pretty shopping around the coast. There are 2 Discount Outlets, one to the north and one to the south. Restaurants are everywhere - you will find them inexpensive, with friendly and attentive service while enjoying a spectacular sunset or simply basking in the warmth of Florida's weather.
The area is also famous for it's sunsets and the two places to view them from is Englewood Beach or Fishermans Village at Punta Gorda, where you can eat or drink overlooking the water or take a boat trip or just wander round the craft shops.

"A Fantastic Holiday"
We had a fantastic holiday at this villa. The quality of the furnishings and cleanliness was first rate. Everything was as expected including the free wifi which was vital for my daughter. Played golf… More

"Awesome villa, spotless, comfortable and very private, perfect!!!!"
We stayed for 2 weeks in November and loved every minute of the holiday, the villa was absolutely gorgeous and catered for all our needs and more. We have stayed in many villas in Florida but this one was the cream of the crop in every way. Highly recommend it to anyone who has not yet been to this beautiful part of Florida. The owners could not have been more helpful and the information in the villa was very informative too. Would we stay there again? You bet, given the chance!!! Thank you so much for letting us stay.

"A real hidden gem"
This home is just perfect ! The rooms are large, well furnished and have everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Outdoors, the pool area is one of the largest we've stayed in and the dining and BBQ facilities are great.
I call Rotonda a hidden gem, not a lot of people know of it, yet it has 5 golf courses on its doorstep, amazing local restaurants and beautiful beaches within a short drive.
Take a visit to Gasparilla Island and Boca Grande beach, it's stunning and the island is home to no less than 8 billionaires!!!

"Beautiful home, just right for a holiday by the beach"
This was a lovely villa that our family really enjoyed staying at. The owners were very helpful and made the whole process very smooth. Lots to do nearby, especially liked the nearby beaches and the swamp tours to see the alligators.

"Hidden treasure in SW Florida"
After several visits to the popular tourist spots in Florida, we searched for a lesser known area. Five years ago we discovered Englewood and Rotunda and we keep returning !!! The area is an ocean and wildlife lovers paradise. This year the house we hired was a delight. In a peaceful position backing onto a golf course and a lake busy with wildlife it has its own private pool. The property itself was in excellent condition. We were joined for part of our holiday by our younger family and with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it was ideal for 6 people. Situated approximately 10 minutes drive from the ocean and shopping facilities a car is a necessity. After being out and about exploring the area, the best part of the day was returning to this lovely villa.

"We didn't want to leave!"
This is the second time we have stayed in this property and I was in two minds whether to write a review for fear that too many people would try to book it and freeze us out!!. Each time it has been immaculately presented and is a real home from home. The furnishings are of good quality and comfortable, the pool is perfectly adequate for 6 people and the water retains its heat, the outdoor living space is excellent and has a covered area for sitting out even during the thunderstorm we experienced, and we made extensive use of the gas barbecue (which comes with a spare gas cylinder). Once you have mastered the confusing layout of Rotonda West (might take a few days!) there is easy access to 3 supermarkets (Winn Dixie, Publix and Walmart) and several excellent restaurants (recommend Howards, Lock and Key, Farlows (all in Englewood) and the Fish Restaurant in Placida). There is a super ice cream parlour on the corner of South McCall and Sunnybrook as you come in to Rotonda - pack elasticated shorts!
We are bird watchers and there are several reserves in the local area worth visiting. Further afield we spent several sessions at the Celery Fields (junction 210 on I75) and at Myakka River SP (J205), both of which have local Audubon volunteers to assist in recognition. We met many other birders from other States, all of whom were friendly and helpful and eager to offer their e-mail addresses! If you want to spend the day at the villa there is ample opportunity to birdwatch from the patio. The Grackles are particularly noisy when they come in to roost in the adjacent reedbed, but they soon shut up when the local bobcat attacked them, just after a Coopers Hawk (like the European Sparrowhawk) took one of them for tea! We also had a racoon climbing up the patio screen one evening, an Armadillo walking down the street, an Osprey and a Belted Kingfisher fishing in front of the patio, a bald eagle on a telephone pole and a rabbit on the front lawn. Don't go unless you like wildlife!
We had one minor problem which we needed to refer to the management agent. We couldn't get through on the phone (it was 8pm) so we drove to his premises. It was only when we read the "instructions" that we realised he monitored the phone out of hours for emergencies. He was very gracious and fixed the problem the following day - and we didn't have to stick around for him.
All in all an excellent base for a relaxing holiday. Don't expect raucous evening entertainment, unless you drive to one of the bars/restaurants on Beach Road, as Rotonda is very much a residential neighbourhood - but be aware that law enforcement officers are fairly active and do patrol the streets of Rotonda; they even set up a speed monitoring machine at the junction of Marker Rd and Rotonda Boulevard while we were there. Finally you will definitely need a car to get around, although there is a local taxicab service available and you can get pizza delivered.

"What else do you need!!"
The villa is a great place to relax or as a base to travel to local beaches or other areas.
The information provided prior to the visit and by the website are accurate and believe me, you do see the wildlife!!
The facilities in the villa are perfect and not sure what else anyone or any group would require to improve their stay.
Local amenities are great and within 10 minutes.
Travel links very good and within driving distance of major tourist areas, which makes this a fabulous base.
Being out of season it is was quiet, which is exactly what we were looking for.
We visit Florida most years and if looking to stay in this area would have no hesitation booking again.

Absolutely loved our stay at this villa, just one problem a week wasn't long enough.
The villa was beautifully presented and had everything you could possibly need to make the perfect stay. The pool area was perfect, beautiful views and caught the sun even in late November.
The beaches were beautiful, our favourite being Gaspirilla Island. Supermarkets and restaurants were all just a short drive away.
Booking was easy, we would definitely recommend this villa, can't think of one negative.

"Fantastic holiday home for relaxing or exploring"
We stayed here for two weeks in July/August 2012. The villa is situated in a very quiet residential area backing onto the local golf course, with views over the lake making it an ideal location for relaxing.
There are a number of shops and restaurants, located within a short drive from the Villa, and with easy access to the local towns, beaches and golf courses, it's an ideal location to explore the Gulf Coast. We particularly enjoyed visiting Gasparilla Island, with it's unspoilt beaches and great wild life which, was only 15 minutes away.
The Villa was immaculately presented, and equipped with everything that you could reasonably need during your stay, making it feel a real home from home, and probably one of the best we have ever had the pleasure of staying in.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and dealt with our enquires, however small, pre and post booking in a friendly and efficient manner.
I would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family, and look forward to returning soon.
