Rotonda West house description
This fully air-conditioned fully furnished home is relatively new to the market and boasts a peaceful and serene setting. The beautiful over-sized Lanai surrounds a heated saltwater pool with a waterfall providing a soothing effect.
Looking out over the pool from the security of the lanai you will on occasion see a small gator in the golf course pond. Please keep away & do not feed any gator (it's illegal).
There you will also see a bounty of wildlife (ibis, egret, wood storks, cranes, herons, osprey, annhingas, cormorants, and gopher turtles.).
You also overlook the approach to the green of the Par-5 Eleventh Hole on the Hills Course of the Rotonda Golf Development.
All patio doors open to the Pool/Lanai, and all rooms have Casablanca Fans. There is a pass-through window from the kitchen to the Lanai for serving snacks and beverages.
The landscaping is very alluring and supports the local wildlife. The yard and pool are both maintained weekly.
Easy access to multiple sandy beaches are close by.
Short drive to Boca Grande, Venice Beach, Englewood & Manasota Beaches, and other beaches.
Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel/Captiva Islands only a little over an hour away.
Marinas with fishing & viewing tours are close by. Boat, jet-ski & kayak rentals are also close by, or trailer your own equipment and enjoy the unlimited opportunities the Gulf of Mexico provides.

I stayed here for a week with a golf buddy and this is a fantastic place! We hope to go back someday and I think that's the best endorsement that I can give this place. The golf was fantastic and for two golf nuts, that was a good thing, but we almost REGRETTED the time we spent on the course because the house was so beautiful and relaxing. Everything, and I mean everything you need is there right down to the cocktail shaker and the barbecue on the patio. Both were employed during our stay. The pool is superb and the view from the pool onto the golf course is entertainment in itself. The wildlife was so abundant and close it was like living in an outdoor zoo for a week. Got a chance to explore the whole area and if you haven't been I know you will enjoy it. Great restaurants surround the place and needless to say there are tons of seafood places, or you can buy it fresh and do it yourself. This is truly a beautiful home, it's comfortable and it's in a great location, I'm not sure how you could do better than that!

Owner response: Dan, We are glad you & Bob had a good time. We also appreciate the "golf environment" in the back yard, as well as the local area. We are pleased you saw our home as your launching pad for a wide range of activities. That is how we see it as well. Thanks for your comments. Jerry & Linda

Peace and Quiet
Peace and Quiet
We spent a month at this lovely, clean home in quiet Rotonda West which is the older section of Rotonda. The days were spent exploring the various beaches, shopping and golfing. After busy days, we came back to the spacious lanai to swim in the new pool, spend time in the sun watching golfers and relax with a book. Since there was wifi, we were able to use our laptop throughout the house. The family room was especially enjoyed as it had comfortable lounge chairs for evening TV watching. The kitchen was well supplied with appliances and dishes for all of our needs. The large closets with numerous hangers made unpacking a pleasure. As we had full access to the garage, we were able to have a car that was cool when we went out. Any time we found it necessary to contact the owners, replies were prompt and concerns attended to in a timely manner. Our security deposit was returned within 30 days of exiting the house. Our time spent at Oakland Place was so pleasant we booked next year for two months before leaving. We truly felt at home.

Owner response: Thank you Paul & Tanya for your kind words. It occurs to us you experienced what we intended (a home away from home, but with a Florida atmosphere). The sites and activities you found are what enticed us to choose this area. The house and the location on the golf course sealed the deal. We are pleased that you are coming back next year. Let us know if we can help in any way to make your stay more enjoyable. You already know how to reach us! Jerry & Linda

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We purchased this house because we love the area, the golf, the beaches and the sun. We wanted to share a little bit of paradise with those who choose to come down and experience the charm and serenity of Coastal living. The locals refer to this as a 'sleepy peaceful town with a fishing problem'. We rented in other Gulf Coast areas and found them too commercial and busy. We rented here and chose to stay.
Why the Owner Chose Rotonda West:
This house reached out to us because of the layout, the location on the golf course, the fabulous dining all around (including the Rotonda Country Club) and the tranquility. Sitting in the pool or in the Lanai, watching the golfers and wildlife go by is remarkable to us. Doesn't get any better.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nicely furnished with full amenities. Well appointed and very comfortable. Full kitchen (remodeled 2012 w/granite & new stainless steel appliances) & laundry facilities. Cable, ROKU, Internet, WiFi, Phone. Fully engage with the family, or enjoy peaceful solitude.
