A lovely villa in a wonderful location, overlooking a wildlife lake and with views towards one of the many local golf courses - in fact it would be difficult to find another villa with a comparable idyllic setting. The open Florida style villa built in 2007 overlooks the pool and superb, peaceful and quiet situation. From the pool at the rear of the villa the lawn slopes down to the lake. Within view is the 5th green of Long Marsh golf course, but not too close to disturb the peace or seclusion.
The wide variety of wildlife including green, little blue and great blue herons, egrets and anhingas, the sight of a bald eagle soaring overhead and the sound or sighting of a gator as the sun sets is the making of memories, something very special. The entire area of Rotonda West is a designated bird sanctuary.
The Villa: Built in 2007, the home has been furnished with great care to offer visitors a very comfortable and enjoyable experience. The villa comprises a spacious and airy ‘Great Room’ with cathedral ceiling and a cozy corner with swivel rockers where board games and reading matter can be found. The kitchen is well equipped for those who enjoy cooking, with breakfast bar and swivel stools allowing integration with the living area. A breakfast nook with slate table and wooden chairs overlooks the pool and terrace. There are three bedrooms (one king, one queen and one fitted with twin beds), master bathroom with a large walk-in shower and separate (his and her) marble vanity units and a second full bathroom with bath and shower. CABLE TV (APPROX 70 CHANNELS) is provided in the Great Room (40inch),master bedroom and the queen bedroom; WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS is also provided.
Private Pool, Lanai & More: Sliding glass patio doors give access to the lanai where a large glass topped patio table and chairs are located for alfresco dining; loungers are available for guests to use. There is a GAS BBQ on the terrace to complete the outdoor living experience (enclosed in the lanai). The pool is equipped with removable SAFETY FENCE that can be installed to prevent access by non-swimmers, affording peace of mind for parents with young children. FIVE BICYCLES for the use of guests and a PING PONG TABLE for that fun-filled evening can be found in the garage (fitted with remote control door opener). There are also 4 SETS of GOLF CLUBS and TENNIS RACKETS available for use.
Activities: Boat charter is available through our friendly local management company who offer other services including transfers to and from local airports and will also provide a breakfast starter pack if required.

Alternatively, charter a boat and skipper and sail out into the Gulf for the excitement of game fishing for marlin or tarpon. Rotonda is an excellent area for cycling with its own pioneer trail and a cycle path that stretches down to Boca Grande.
