Towering queen palm trees and meticulous tropical landscaping will herald your arrival. The double lot is speckled with tropical trees.

The southwest facing pool deck has plenty of room for the 4 sun loungers and a table which seats six. Beautiful tropical landscaping surrounds the whole house. A barbecue is located on the lanai.

Walk into the front door and delight in the soft gold and green hues of the rich, classical décor. This house has been professionally decorated with all new furnishings which provide utmost in comfort and style. The 16 x 17’ great room has a sofa, loveseat, and recliner.

Attached is a sitting room, where you can relax and watch television before retiring for the night.

Sandy Howlett purchased this villa in 2013

Why Sandy Howlett chose Rotonda West

We chose this exquisite property because of the waterfront location and double lot on beautiful Boundary Blvd. The pool and spa have lovely views of the Rotonda River. This home will provide a wonderful retreat from Rochester winters once we retire.

What makes this villa unique

spa, double lot, beautiful arched windows throughout, rich colors, tile floor, volume ceilings , beautiful guest bedrooms with a pocket door to close off the guest side for privacy.

Beautiful, private oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the sand dollar. The owner was very accommodating. This is one of the nicest homes that we have stayed at in the area. The decor was very high-end and the home was immaculate. It was well equipped with everything you might need including bikes. It is a family friendly option and great for young children as well. The privacy is superb. We will be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented several villas in Rotonda over the years and this villa was by far the best! Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. The house was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The pool was also clean, which has been an issue in the past with other rentals. We had a wonderful week and enjoyed all the area beaches. We rented a boat our last day and enjoyed the intercostal waterways and Don Pedro Island.
