Rotonda West villa description
Completed in February 2007, this luxury villa backs onto the main Rotonda Canal giving spectacular water views. Fish for trout, watch the abundant bird life, or simply appreciate the peace and quiet of this superb location. The property is equipped and furnished to the highest standard throughout and immaculately maintained.
Living accommodation consists of a great room equipped with a LCD flat panel TV, multi region DVD /DivX player, and seating for six; a formal dining area with a six-place table; an informal "nook" dining room with a six-seat table and a fully-equipped (dishwasher, microwave, ceramic hob cooker, cookware) large kitchen that has a utility room containing washing machine and dryer. The house has a wireless internet connection and a PC.
Sleeping accommodation consists of a master bedroom containing a king-size bed, walk-in wardrobe, and an en suite bathroom with a "Jacuzzi" bath, walk-in shower, and twin wash basins. The second bedroom has a queen-size double bed, built-in wardrobe, and a dressing table. Bedroom three has two single beds, a built-in wardrobe, and a dressing table. Bedroom four is multi-functional depending on requirements. It contains a high quality sofa bed allowing it to be used as a third double bedroom or as a TV room containing a three-seat sofa with a 28-inch TV with integral DVD and VCR plus DivX player. The house bathroom is fitted to a high standard, has twin wash basins and a shower/bath with direct access to the pool deck.
The garage is also multi functional. It can be used as a traditional garage with electric opening door, or to amuse the kids as a game room with air hockey, pool and table tennis tables.
Outside is a large, caged deck area with a 25-foot pool and a heated spa with views of the Rotonda Canal. There is nothing more relaxing that sitting in the spa with a cool drink watching the beautiful Florida sunsets. The pool is solar heated, but has an additional electrical heater if required in the colder months at a fee of $60 a week. Spa heating costs $50 a week, but if doubled up with the electric pool heater its $90 for both
The villa is situated 35 miles from the airports in Fort Myers or Sarasota with both less than 50-minute drive. Fantastic beaches at Englewood and on the island of Boca Grande are with 10 and 20 minutes drive away respectively. The major Florida Theme parks are close enough to be accessible, but far enough to stop persistent pestering from the kids. Busch Gardens can be reached easily in one hour 45 minutes, Disney and Great Universal Studios take about 45 minutes longer. Kennedy Space Centre is about three hours 30 minutes.
Rotonda West offers great facilities. The community park has free tennis courts, play grounds and plenty of open space for even the most energetic children. For those who like to cycle there is a cycle path that threads its way through Rotonda West and over to Rotonda Lakes (via the Pioneer trail - rail to cycle paths). There are ample restaurants in the area. These range from the Leverrocks Restaurant that is only accessible by boat with fantastic coastal views to numerous family friendly restaurants such as Prime Time, Howards, Country Hound, Farlows on the Water and Mamas. You can eat on the beach either in a casual style at The South Beach Grill on Boca Grande or the lively White Elephant at Englewood which looks out over Lemon Bay. You can go up market at the Gulf View Grill that over looks the beautiful Englewood beach and promenade. There are three large supermarkets close by. Winn Dixie (open until 11 PM), Wal-Mart (24 hours), and Publix (24 hours) are all within ten-minute drive. There is a water park less than 1 hour away in Cape Coral (Sunsplash) and a children's crazy golf park nearby on interstate 776.
For the golfers, this part of Florida is an absolute must. There are four golf courses actually on Rotonda West that are all part of Rotonda West Country Club. An additional 15 courses are within 15-minute drive and offer golf for a range of handicaps and pockets.
The best way to explore the beautiful Port Charlotte harbour area is by boat. Pop down to Whidden's Marina on Boca Grande and hire a boat from Captain Russ's boat hire. You can go south to Cayo Costa or Cabbage key, or North up to Placidia, Don Pedro Island or Lemon bay. You can find some beautiful beaches only accessible by boat.
For those that just love to shop, the main Shopping Centre in Port Charlotte has all the big names plus more restaurants than you can name including the Outback Steakhouse, Ruby Tuesdays, and Sam Salsa. Continue on a little further (ten minutes) to Punta Gorda and you will find Fisherman’s Village.

What can I say, other than this place has it all! My family of 4 stayed here during the summer for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that I have been no place better. Every review of this home is spot on and I would not hesitate for even a moment to recommend this property to close friends and relatives. I have been to many other regions of Florida and this is one of the more enjoyable ones. Thank you so much for the memories! We will be back! Sincerely, The Martin family.

My family loved this house it was well kept and very clean; the husband and wife team(managers) were very pleasant and informative on where shopping spots were. We had an early flight and they allowed us to go into the house before 4 p.m !! The kids enjoyed the pool tremendously they were in it every day and also the Playstation 2 game console with games? what more could a kid as for!!!.The den was also a plus as this was were the kids watched t.v as my husband and I watched the big screen television in the living room!! My husband used the barbeque grill most of the time for meals and we sat out way into the night enjoying the peace and quiet. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a really nice and quiet place to stay.

My family and I have rented a number of homes in Rotunda and this property was clearly the best. It was spotless and comfortable. The pool was heated perfectly. The location was convenient and getting in and out of Rotunda was easy. It is close to our favorite beaches and The Fishery, our favorite restaurant. We will rent this property again! Chris L

We have visited Rotonda the last 5 years and stayed at some very nice villas but this home was outstanding. Besides being nicely decorated and immaculate,having the extra ammenities that were available was great.The location is quiet, especially for bike riding.Having a spa and canal view is very relaxing. Our month long stay went by too quickly and definitely will stay here again.

This was our second time back in two years. That should say it all. We love everything about this home and the owners. They are very responsive and working with them is a pleasure. We found the home, two years later, just perfect for our family. When we booked this year we were happy to find that the owners had upgraded the home to include a computer and 4 bikes. This was again a peaceful and relaxing time for our family. The kids were so happy to hear us say we are going back to Rotonda. In our minds, this is THE place in Rotonda.

This home has everything one could wish for and more. The extra's really make this villa stand out above the rest, this is not your typical vacation home but offers so much more. On top of all the amenities this home also complies with the 3 most important laws in real estate: Location, location, location. Lots of privacy, few neighbours and a quiet street with very little traffic. The canal view from the lanai will give you this indescribable feeling of freedom when you watch the sunrise in the morning. We didn't want to leave. You could even bring your mother-in-law and still have a great stay.

We booked at the last minute for the second week in September 2008. The owner was very accommodating. The house is beautiful. The pool/spa and lanai were great. The pool table, bikes and other activities in the garage were a nice touch!
