About the Property

3 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to sleep 6

Sandpiper is a wonderful home decorated in soft pastel colours and is tiled throughout the main living area. Sandpiper enjoys plenty of sun with a south rear aspect looking over the Rotonda River which is the widest inland waterway on Rotonda.

Please view the photos of Sandpiper and the surrounding area. We are also on Facebook, where you can find even more photos, as well as news and updates. Find us using the following link:

Designed for maximum comfort and a laid-back style, Sandpiper is a popular repeat rental. Our home has been professionally furnished and is light and bright with many charming touches. There is a formal living/dining area and a separate family room with flat screen TV & DVD player (region free).

The master bedroom has a super king bed and TV, opens out onto the pool deck. The master bath has a separate shower and bath, as well as his and hers vanity units.
Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and sliding doors out on to the pool deck. Bedroom 3 has two single beds, with the option of a kid size bed when pushed together and made up with a mattress topper. Both bedrooms share the second bathroom, which has access through to the pool deck.

The kitchen has a large oven and fridge/freezer, complete with water and ice dispenser. There is also an informal kitchen dining table, as well as a bar which seats 4.

There is a longer than average pool so that we can swim laps when staying at Sandpiper and there is very comfortable pool furniture. A number of pool toys can be found in the double garage.

The golf on Rotonda is excellent with 6 courses, 5 of which form the Rotonda Golf & Country Club. These 5 courses are immaculate and easy to access. Our property management company can provide you with more information and phone numbers for the courses available at the house. We also provide 3 sets of golf clubs, one ladies RH and two mens (RH & LH) for our guests to use during their stay.

There is fantastic fishing here. You can fish from the canals at the bottom of the garden. You can fish from piers and the beaches. You can take a boat which takes groups of anglers out to sea, or hire a guided flats boat and head backwater into the mangrove swamps to catch the famous Redfish, Snook, Sheeps Head, Ladyfish and Spotted Trout. Fishing varies by season so please ask for more information.

For game fish, from mid-April to mid-July you can enjoy the amazing Tarpon Fishing, also known as the Silver King. These incredible fish average 100-200lbs and are prolific in this area in season. There is something for everyone!

The Tampa Bay Rays are league winners and have their winter camp at the Charlotte Sports Stadium which is just 12 minutes from the house. From early April to early September, their Minor A leagues have their spring camp there.

We love this area. It is very relaxing, yet if you are more energetic, there is plenty to do.

There are no less than 6 courses within the Rotonda development. We leave 3 sets of clubs for guests to use (MRH, MLH, LRH).

There are dozens of very good beaches just 10-15 minutes away both south and west of Rotonda. We particularly recommend Boca Grande.

Shopping and restaurants are readily available, and for the energetic you can hire kayaks to enjoy guided trips up the Myakka river. We have 2 bikes suitable for gentle exercise locally. There are several State Parks in the local area and some good horse riding at local stables.

Our home has a comprehensive in-house guide full of ideas of things to do and places to go. Our management company have tourism brochures and are happy to provide a free map of the area on request.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: The Casey family comprises Gemma, Aidan and baby Ezra. We have enjoyed coming here for a few years now, courtesy of Aidan's parents who bought the villa in 2011. We are very pleased to have recently taken over management of Sandpiper. Whilst Gemma is originally from Stoke-on-Trent, both Aidan and Ezra were born in South Wales. We have made our home in Caerphilly, and are lucky to make a trip to Florida usually once a year.
