About the property

4 Beds (3 US-King Sized Master En-Suites), Ideal For 3 Couples Sharing

This is a unique property, very large & roomy, with three US-King sized master on suites (ideal for 3 couples sharing), three lounges & large kitchen. Unlike most rental villas, the bedrooms do not simply open from a central lounge area. Friends and families sharing can enjoy space apart as well as time together!

Although constructed as a 5 bed, 4000 sq ft luxury villa, ‘The Palms’ has been professionally furnished as a large 4 bed for up to 8 discerning guests. It will appeal to those seeking a much grander than the typical 2000-2500 sq ft home. It has a large south-facing pool and deck area, not overlooked, within half an acre of beautiful, landscaped gardens. The home stands on an over sized corner lot. We also own the lot behind the house which is fenced and grassed for extra privacy.

Situated 1/4 mile in from the busy Rotonda Circle, in a quite, select residential area. Six golf courses within a couple of minutes drive. Wireless b/b, cable to all 6 TVs. Main lounge has HD Cable with 65" HD flat-screen. Channels include HBO & Netflix.

This property is our own Florida home for 4 months per year, not just a rental, and, as such, has been fully outfitted with everything we would want and need for comfort and enjoyment.

About Peter & Pam Hewitt

Semi-retired, we run an office and industrial rental business in the North West of the UK. We have been visiting Florida (and the USA generally) for over 25 years. We have several trips to Florida each year, spending a total of approx four months at our home.

Peter & Pam Hewitt purchased this villa in 2005

Why Peter & Pam Hewitt chose Long Meadow

We bought this property due to its size and location. It has four separate a/c zones. The pool area is very large and private facing South/South East. The pool is bigger than most. The home is situated in a quiet, residential area away from the busy Rotonda main roads. We chose the Rotonda area as it is centrally located on the beautiful west coast of Florida. The beaches on the chain of barrier islands stretch from Naples to our south, including Captiva, Sanibel, Boca Grande, our own Manasota Key (Englewood Beach) and then north with Venice Beach, Casey Key, Siesta Key and onward to Sarasota and Anna Maria Island. Our central location allows easy access to all of these and more.

What makes this villa unique

You will not find a better outfitted home. Three of the beds are American King Size (larger than a UK Super-King), all with en-suite bathrooms, and are super-comfortable - Ideal for 2 or 3 couple sharing the home

Wonderful stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days in this beautiful home. The house is extremely well stocked with kitchen essentials, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, pool floats. Lots of comfortable seating around the pool. The 3 young grandchildren spent every day in the saltwater, heated pool. The adults enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings! The home is clean and well organized and nicely decorated. The photos reflect exactly what you will see. The communication with the owners was great. We would definitely rent this property again!

Spacious home in quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this very spacious home. There were only four of us but you could definitely comfortably fit several more people. The home was clean and tidy. Everything you could need was here including beach chairs and bikes which used to tour the neighborhood. The pool was fantastic too! Thanks for labeling all the light switches which saved us from turning them on and off to figure out which went to what. Would definitely rent here again!

Beautiful home with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

This home had absolutely everything we needed which made for a great stay.

Rotonda is generally a quiet complex anyway but the fact that we had no immediate neighbours made the stay even more peaceful.

Totally equipped kitchen and roomy entertainment areas.

Beautiful pool area that takes full advantage of the afternoon sun.

The fact that we had awesome weather for the entire stay didn't hurt either.

We've never had a bad experience renting in Rotonda but this was the best so far.

We have rented this home Twice!

  • 5 of 5

Just like the title says, we have rented this place twice.. and look forward to many more! This house is always clean, comfortable and well stocked. My husband and I have lived in SW FL in the past and this house is in a great location. The neighborhood is bike friendly. The house is private yet convenient .Peter has been wonderful to work with in the booking and checkout process. Our family loves this home and you will too! My only regret in writing this review is the fear that someone else will book our week ;).

Rotonda is situated on the Cape Haze peninsular west of Charlotte harbour, between Venice & Sarasota to the North and Naples to the South. From the air, it appears to be a perfect circle, two miles from the coast and about three miles in diameter. It is divided by its canals and infrastructure into eight segments, with a blend of high-calibre homes, lakes, golf courses and green belt. Voted amongst the top 10 ‘best places to live in the USA’, this area is a great base to explore the real Florida, providing easy access to the towns of Venice, Sarasota, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Naples and The Everglades. Tampa and Busch Gardens are an hour and a half to the north. Orlando and the many other theme parks, such as Disneyworld and Universal Studios, are 2.5 hours drive. Often visitors choose a hectic 2 or 3 day trip away to the Orlando theme parks before returning again to unwind and relax. Enjoy the year-long warm climate and waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Kick back & relax
