Rotonda West villa description

Villa Elysian is one of the largest properties in the area sitting on a double lot of about half an acre. Being a former show house (model home) it is equipped to the highest standard with many, many upgrades from superior kitchen and bathroom features, blinds to decorative items.

This luxurious home sleeps eight in comfort, while ten can be accommodated easily, and is ideal for two families. Both master bedrooms have large walk-in closets and spacious, luxury, en-suite bathrooms with whirlpool baths, separate shower units and his and her wash hand basins. There is cable TV to the two master bedrooms, both of which have French windows opening out directly on to the pool/lanai area.

There are a further two bedrooms, one a double and one a twin sharing the third full bathroom with shower. In addition there is a double sofa bed in the den/TV room, with generous built-in wardrobe and storage space, near the fourth shower room with WC and wash hand basin which also serves as the pool shower room.

The villa, in total, has an impressive 3,300 sq ft of floor space, excluding the pool area. All the living areas are fully air-conditioned for summer comfort and winter warmth also coming equipped with a ceiling fan in each room which helps circulate the cool air.

The main living area is of the open plan design, which consists of a beautifully furnished living room overlooking the pool and lanai, a formal dining area and a breakfast/casual dining area close to the kitchen. This is extremely well-equipped with dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, microwave, oven, hob and all the smaller domestic appliances you would automatically expect – kettle, toaster, blender, coffee maker etc. Of course it is fully equipped with more than adequate supplies of pots and pans, cutlery, crockery, glassware and all kitchen linen. The telephone is located on the breakfast bar area – all local calls are free and phone cards can be purchased very cheaply from most supermarkets.

Leading from the kitchen there is a separate utility room with a very large simple-to-operate washing machine and tumble drier. A door leads from the utility room to the double garage where bikes and beach equipment are stored.

The den/TV room with double sofa bed is equipped with cable TV and has a DVD/VCR with a good selection of films. In addition there is a good selection of games for children and adults and a selection of books. Whether for fun or business internet access is installed.

Through sliding doors, from the open plan interior, there is a fully screened pool with removable child guard. The pool is solar-heated for most of the year, electrically heated for the cooler months, generally from October through to March. There is a luxury hydro spa. Currently there is no extra charge for either the spa or the electric heating.

The villa is fully equipped with everything that families or groups of friends require for a memorable holiday. For the cycling enthusiast there are 4 bikes (2 gents 2 ladies/child) to explore the local area; additional bikes can be hired if required. Within minutes of walking or cycling is situated Florida National Parkland, a lovely, tranquil, unspoiled area with a host of wildlife.

There are sun shades, beach chairs, a cool box and plenty of beach towels. For those interested there is even a bird watching kit and guide to local birds, and a wall map to plan outings locally. When not dining in local eating places the gas BBQ can be fired up to enjoy outdoor eating by the pool, whilst watching glorious Florida sunsets, with a suitable drink in hand. The nearest Golf course is a good chip from the Villa.

We have a local family-run Management Company to prepare the villa prior to your arrival. If you wish they will supply a Welcome Pack, extra gas cylinders for the BBQ etc. Should you have any problems at all they are there to help. Please take the time to read their very comprehensive Information Booklet provided in the villa. It covers all aspects of your stay, from safety issues to details of beaches, golf courses, maps, activities, shopping and eating places.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: We live at Stratford upon Avon, England and have been married for 35 years with four children. We visited Florida and stayed at a friend's Villa and fell in love with the South West of Florida; the standard of living, relaxed lifestyle, the pools, amenities, cost of living, empty white beaches and friendliness. We love the area.

              Why Rotonda West:
              Rotonda West is ideally situated in the South West of Florida, and the Pine Valley area of Rotonda not heavily built up. The Villa is by the Rotonda Waterway on a double plot and within minutes, by cycling or walking, of Florida National Parkland. The Golf was a great plus and has now got closer!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Sitting by the heated pool or in the hot tub, sipping Marguerites and watching the sun go down over the recently landscaped gardens, planning the next days activities, knowing there is so much to choose from and with such a beautiful Villa to use as a base.
