About the property

3BR/2.5BA Home w Heated Sport Pool

Our house was just completed in November 2012.

The house features an open floor plan that includes the main entry, kitchen, dining area and two large living spaces all with views of the pool area.

The fully equipped kitchen has island seating, granite countertops, new maple cabinets, and a new side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water. The one living area houses a Samsung 55' flat screen with Direct TV satellite service and the other living area is more suited for conversational seating.

The master suite is very large with sliding doors to the pool area, a king bed, TV with satellite service, two closets, and private bath. The master bath features an onyx countertop with two sinks, a large oval tub, and tiled shower with glass doors.

The other side of the home has two bedrooms with a bath in between. The one bedroom has a king bed and other has a queen bed. The bathroom has a combination tiled shower and tub.

Their is also a den with a half bath. The den has a futon which can be used to make this room an extra bedroom. We have a computer and printer in this room with Centurylink DSL internet service. The service also includes a wireless router.

There is a large garage and a laundry area. The laundry has new front load washer and dryer.

The heating swimming pool is set up as a sport pool. The deepest part is in the middle and is approximately 5' and tapers on both sides to shorter depths. Their is a sitting ledge in the pool with jets and steps with a railing to enter the pool. We have a volleyball net, posts, and ball for fun in the pool. The area has a large lanai with a sitting table with four chairs and also several lounges and Adirondack chairs. The pool faces southwest for views of the sunset and countryside. There are several other houses on the main street fronting the house. The pool faces a large part of the Rotonda Sands development which has been cleared and has roads, but no houses yet. This actually give the house stunning far reaching views from the pool area.

About Lorraine

We currently reside in Erie, Pennsylvania. We have two kids. Our son is a high school senior and daughter is a junior. We hope to move to Florida once are kids get into college. We do a little construction and remodeling on the side.

Lorraine purchased this house in 2010

Why Lorraine chose Rotonda West

We bought this home on a short sale. It was largely unfinished. Stucco on the outside, but no painting or pool. The plumbing and wiring was done in the walls only and the house was drywalled. We planned to flip the house. In the end we put much nicer amenities into it and aren't sure what our plans are for it. The pool and lanai, kitchen, and master bath are areas we got carried away with. We hope this makes the house a great seasonal rental for now.

Quiet and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a winter getaway. Undeveloped area allows for great star gazing at night, bird watching during the day. Golf/tennis/beaches/restaurants are all close by. Owners are extremely attentive and very fast with all responses. Plenty of room for the dogs to run. A++. We have already booked our return visit for 2018!

Relaxing Treat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time at your home! Everything was wonderful when we arrived, plenty of room to really relax. The pool was a huge hit with our kids we could barely keep them out of it. Thanks goodness for the extra pool towels you provided! It was wonderful we ate out meals by the pools whenever we could. Master bedroom was amazing, soaking tub, double sinks and love the shower. We used your 2 bikes and brought our kids bikes along and had many long bike rides in the area, it is undeveloped so light traffic until we got to the bike trails. Bike trails go on for miles. House is in a great location just 3 miles from grocery store and a handful of Restaurants. We had been to englewood before but fell in love with Gasparilla Island and beach it is worth the toll. House is more then we expected and the pictures of it accurate but its better in person. Would love to stay there again!

Very quiet house

  • 4 of 5

We chose this house because it was secluded. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. It is well equipped. Not too far from the nice beaches (15 min.) and the stores (10 min.) We had our dog with us. The two brand new bicycles were a nice bonus. We made a good choice. The owners are very nice and helpful. We would like to return in the future. It was a restful vacation.
