Tranquil, Spacious, 3B, 2B, Pool Overlooks Golf Course, Offers Concierge Service

When guests arrive at our home and enter through the front door, the first thing they notice is our home has been furnished by a professional interior decorator in a tasteful, distinct, and unique Floridian style which makes it a one of a kind gem. Everything is provided for our guests -- just bring your clothes and personal items.

Retire to the master bedroom's king size bed to read a book or watch TV. Treat yourself to the Jacuzzi tub or a refreshing shower in the master bath. On the other side of the house are two comfortable guests’ bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. These 2 guest rooms share their own private bath which has direct access to the lanai. All linens, towels (including bath, beach and pool) are included.

The spacious living area comfortably seats 6 guests. Sit back and enjoy the flat screen TV to watch cable TV, or perhaps one of the many DVDs supplied by the owners. If you are not fond of TV, entertain yourself with high speed internet, wifi, a selection of board games, checkers, chess, puzzles, cards, or a small library of books to enjoy by the pool.

The kitchen is completely equipped with all large and small appliances. The large breakfast bar allows for lively conversation while meals are being prepared. As you stand in the kitchen, you can look out over the lanai and see the pool and golf course. Initial salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, paper towels, napkins, dish detergent, and garbage bags are provided.

The formal dining room has seating for 6 guests.

Full laundry facilities contain a washing machine, dryer, laundry tub, iron, ironing board, and drying rack. Initial detergent and fabric sheets are supplied.

Open 1 of the 4 sets of sliding patio doors to the lanai and take in the scenery. You will find the fresh water canal and the first green of Pine Valley Golf Course just behind the house. The lanai is screened with a solar heated pool (and evening solar pool blanket), ceiling fan, patio table, 6 chairs, 3 loungers, and a gas grill. The solar heated pool is west facing so the sun basks down on the pool most of the day. The pool can be floodlit at night for those romantic swims. The lanai area also has access to the guest bathroom for added convenience. The lanai is great for enjoying breakfast and coffee in the morning, lunch, or a glass of wine and dinner during the evening.

Air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout.

Our villa is thoroughly maintained and cleaned after the departure of our guests, and rechecked prior to new arrivals.

For your trip to the beach, there are several beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas, and a cooler. In the garage are four beach cruisers with helmets available for riding around Rotonda West.

This home is on a cul-de-sac street so traffic is minimal. During the evening hours, enjoy the privacy, peacefulness, and thousands of stars. Daytime offers the opportunity to see many species of birds and wildlife as the home is very close to Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park.

This home is ideally situated just minutes from several public beaches: Englewood Beach, Stump Pass Beach, Blind Pass (aka Middle) Beach, Don Petro Island State Park, and Gasparilla Island State Park. In addition, 14 minutes to Cape Haze Marina, and 26 minutes to Gasparilla Island (Boca Grande). First class salt water fishing and water sports facilities all within easy reach. There are 8 public golf courses within 5 miles. For shoppers, there is Boca Grande, Englewood’s Dearborne Street, historic Venice, Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, plus many local artistic and outlet stores. Fabulous restaurants and bars are close by. Many types of local music can also be found.

New in 2017: Ask about our Concierge Services: The villa offers a Concierge Service ready to assist in any way to ensure you have the most memorable & enjoyable experience possible during your stay with us. Whether it is arranging restaurant reservations, car rentals, shopping excursions (Boca Grande, Fisherman's Village, Outlets, etc), transportation services (Sanibel, Captiva, Siesta) to the beach, dinner, or maybe just a designated driver for an evening on the town. We also have a never ending list of water activities here on the West Coast: fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat tours to local islands for dinner & a beautiful sunset. Oh, and let's not forget the Craig Cats are new this year! Let us help you make memories that will last a lifetime.

Also this summer, ask about our Turtle Patrol on the beach. Five or six mornings a week around sunrise, we hit the Boca Grande beach to locate Endangered Sea Turtle Nests. This is free of charge, but you are most welcome to make a donation to the Boca Grande Sea Turtle Association in their name only. There is a limit of 2 people per day. The trip is very educational. This is available May1st thru October 31st.

If you are interested in any of the concierge services or Turtle Patrol, please let the owner know when making your reservations.

Perfect for your idyllic relaxing vacation! Come, and join us in Rotonda West. We look forward to having you as our guest in our home.

About Donna Greene

I bought this property in December 2014 as my future retirement home and a place where my sons and their familes could go to vacation and relax. My boyfriend and I make it down at least 3 or 4 times a year to enjoy beautiful Florida. I was fortunate to have a wonderful real estate agent who listened to me and knew exactly what I was looking for. I originally had Port Charlotte, Englewood, Venice, etc., in mind, but when she drove me thru Rotonda West I was amazed. Rotonda West had everything I was looking for --close enough for shopping, water sports, the beaches, music, great restaurants and music. However, when I was done with all of those things I could return to a tranquil home. Each time I come down to the house, it is more difficult to return to St. Louis. In December 2014 I completed a degree in Associate in Applied Science, Hospitality and Tourism. Providing excellent guest service is my number one priority. That first impression when you arrive at the house, or when you walk in the front door, will set the tone for your stay and I understand that concept completely. We do everything we can to ensure you are not just satisfied, but receive more than you expected. My goal is to have our guests return to our home for additional visits, not just one visit.

Why Donna Greene chose White Marsh

When I was searching for a home in Florida, I was overwhelmed with the number of homes that I viewed. However, when I walked into this home there was something about it. I immediately felt a peacefulness, a serenity, that I had never felt in other homes I viewed. I truly hope that all my guests will feel the same way once they walk thru the front door.

What makes this House unique

Along with the quiet and peacefulness of this home, there were several other attributes that attracted me. This is a cul-de-sac street so very little traffic. My neighbor on one side has a double lot, so the lot next to me contains a berm. On the other side of my home, the lot is empty. Someday I would like to buy the empty lot. Across the street, there are no homes built (yet). I feel there is so much space around us. Also, having the golf course behind the house provides a lot of entertainment for us (no offense to any of the golfers out there). I am not a golfer, but I do enjoy watching them on the first green.

                                                                  Perfect place for a relaxing vacation

                                                                  JAMES/ JUDITH R.gloucester, MA

                                                                  It is rare that something lives up to ones expectation but we were impressed when we open the door at Rotonda West. We found that the pictures while exactly as shown, didn’t do it justice. Mainly, because they can’t show the layout of this lovely home. We were met with bowls of candy and flowers, a refrigerator stocked with crackers and cheese, craft beers and a bottle of wine. We could not have felt more welcome. Everything was spotlessly clean throughout. The kitchen was stocked with everything we would need for our 3 weeks stay, including my favorite, the Keurig coffee maker. But the best for us was the lanai and gorgeous pool. We spent most of our time out there. The view of the water that ran in front of it and the golf course was very relaxing, although we were sorry that we didn’t get to see any alligators who are said to be there. My husband had fun watching the golfers and the sunsets were beautiful. We were blessed with perfect weather, including warm balmy nights in which we could swim in the lighted pool before bed. There was a binder with basic information and wonderful ideas on restaurants and activities in the area. Any questions we had, were answered by Lisa who was so accommodating. We hated to leave. We would not hesitate recommending this place to anyone wanting a relaxing, quiet time in lovely surroundings.

                                                                  Judy and Jim,

                                                                  I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our home. The lanai is very relaxing, especially in the early morning hours and evening at dusk. I'm glad that you took advantage of the lanai. I'm sorry you didn't see any alligators in the pond as they are interesting to watch from a distance. They are there, in fact, there are 2 or 3 little ones now. One of our neighbors sent pictures to us.

                                                                  Lisa is a tremendous property manager -- I don't know what I would do without her. I hope that you will return sometime in the near future. Also, thank you for the "gifts" that you left for Salvador and me on the counter. Lisa took pictures and sent them to me. You didn't have to do that, but we do appreciate it.

                                                                  Donna

                                                                  We wanted to thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. It was more than we had imagined and we felt at home from the time we walked thru the door. The home was equipped with everything from books, dvd's, games, beach chairs, umbrellas, and bikes. The welcoming package was unexpected but very much appreciated. We loved the lanai and pool which was one of the places where we went to have a cup of coffee in the morning, sit and read a book, or watch the golfers.

                                                                  We enjoyed our stay so much we were talking about coming back before we had even left.

                                                                  Richard and Diana

The house was EXACTLY as shown on HomeAway!! It had everything you could think of. The kitchen had everything kitchen appliance we needed to create wonderful meals. The pool was clean and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend anyone looking for a beautiful, clean and quiet home to contact Donna.

I hope that you will make a return trip some time in the not too distant future. Our home is always welcome to awesome guests such as your party.

                                                                  Viola B.

The pool was warm enough for December to swim and maintained weekly so very clean. We enjoyed watching the golfers every morning from the lanai. The owner is quick to respond and very easy to reach. We saw more wildlife in the area then expected which was fun to watch. Englewood Beach and Gasparilla Island were both very close only a few minute drive and both were great fun. I highly recommend going to both areas. There are plenty of restaurants in very close proximity to the house. We plan to return to this property first chance we get, I highly recommend if you don't want to be in the middle of all the hustle bustle you would normally find in beach areas.

You are right -- there are many things to see and much to do. Two weeks isn't enough time to even scratch the surface. We look forward to having Jeff and you as our guests in the future.
