Why Greg McPherson chose Broadmoor

I love this location! We can fish, boat and enjoy the beaches without the crowds found at the other locations. Great local shopping and short trips to outlet malls meet all my retail needs, Bealls and the Port Charlotte Mall are some of my favorite locations.

This spacious 2500sq.ft. home allows couples plenty of room to do their own thing. The pocket door separating the guest rooms from the kitchen and master bedroom, permits a quiet and private space .

The sets of sliding glass doors from the bedrooms, great room and kitchen offer at great view of palms and the wild life at your back door.

The southern exposure on the pool/ lanai has offered us many hours of sunshine to swim and relaxation throughout the fall and winter season, a must for visitors looking to get away from the cold up North.

Loved this House

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week stay at Greg and Jo-Anne's house and we had a fantastic time. The house is very very comfortable in a lovely quiet area. The owners really have thought of everything a guest might need. The beds were really comfy and we all loved the pool. The TV in the lounge is like a home cinema experience and there is fab large TV on the lanai which was a real novelty experience for us. There are loads of lovely beaches close by, and our particular favourite was Boca Grande, which we went to most days. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and very professional.

There are plenty of amenities close by with both Englewood and Port Charlotte a few miles down the road, and two large supermarkets approx 5 mins drive from the house. There is plenty to do in the area so the holiday can be as relaxing, or as activity filled as you wish.

We would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind response regarding our home. We love our home! The area offers a lot of variety. On your next visit you may wish to visit Venice, a lovely town with local live theatre , only 30 minutes away. Venice has many street art shows throughout the year also. Sincerely, Greg & Jo-Anne

A honeymoon dream for us

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jo-Anne & Greg for sharing your beautiful home with us for our honeymoon.

We have been coming to Rotonda for 16 years and your property is by far the most impressive we have stayed in whilst we have been out there. You two both go above and beyond to make the house feel like a home. Everything that you could wish for is in the property.

The rooms are spacious, clean and filled to the brim with everyone you could ever need - the TV systems throughout the house are super impressive. The kitchen is fully equipped and had everything for when we were eating in.

The pool area is such a dream - the view from the back of the property on to the lake is one of the most beautiful we have seen. We would sit out for sunrise in the lanai just watching the wildlife.

You guys have really thought of everything and we felt privileged to share your home and we would 100% want to come back next year.

Thanks for making our honeymoon a dream :)

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Greg and Jo-Anne for letting us stay in your fantastic home for 15 days. We just loved this house. The six of us had an amazing time in Rotonda and your home provided both entertainment and tranquility. We loved the five TV- sets and all the sports we could watch, and the pool was frequently used by all members of the travelling party. We particularly enjoyed the peace and quiet during the evenings sitting outside. 

The size of the house made it possible to retire to one´s bedroom and create some personal space if needed. At the very same time, the living room was large enough to be more than comfortable when all six of us were together.

We would highly recommend this property.

We had a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The four of us stayed 3 weeks in April 2017 and had a wonderful time! The house was clean and well taken care of. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The house is conveniently located within a short distance to beautiful beaches, wonderful shopping and nice restaurants. We enjoyed the pool very much and when we had some issues with the pool (algae), one phonecall to Lance, the property manager was enough to solve the problem the same day.

We won't hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Exceptional vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in Rotonda West for the past 5 years and by far this vacation home was the best. The entire house was well equipped, extremely clean and well maintained. All the comforts of 'home'. Greg and Jo-Ann were awesome to deal with and we felt right at home from the minute we walked through the door. We enjoyed every minute of our time in this home. The pool and outdoor area is exquisite. We would definitely return to this vacation home in the future. Kathy & Ray, Almonte, Ontario
