which provides further information and photo's.

Our stunning home is in an outstanding position, located in the

highly desirable area of Rotonda on the South West Coast of Florida.

Florida's hidden secret. The pace of life is relaxing and the beaches are

fabulous .

South West facing, located next to a lake and Nature Reserve, and overlooking a canal, our home is furnished and decorated to a high standard in a light and airy Florida style.

We have a very friendly management company who provide full

maintenance of the property including pool service, lawn maintenance

and cleaning both before after your stay.

In addition to office hours for general help about the villa and the

area, they are available 24 hours a day for any emergencies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our third consecutive stay in Rotonda and the first time in this villa. Everything is to hand - there were only 3 of us staying so it felt (and is) enormous, two families can easily stay in this villa without getting on each other's nerves! It is on a huge plot surrounded by a canal on both sides, very tranquil and an abundance of wildlife.

We had a blue heron called Ester that would appear outside the pool net every day along with two egrets that popped by too. Sitting on the lanai with a cold drink after packing away the entire contents of Publix (there are 3 Publix stores in this area) and listening to all the birds ..... It's relaxing stuff!

If you can prise you way off the lanai there is a lot to do in the area and fabulous restaurants are close by - one of our favourites was an Italian restaurant called Nicola's. We went to a Charlotte Stone Crabs game which is ten minutes from the villa and was a great night out. The shopping mall in Port Charlotte has a Macy's as well as a lot of other big shops. The outlet shopping mall in Ellenton is great for some bargains. The Mote Aquarium in Sarasota, the most spectacular sunsets from Stump Pass Beach, lemon Bay Tours do nature cruises where we watched pods of dolphins - even two babies! We went out for the day, fishing with a skipper ....I have never been so hot...but it was an experience.

I cannot compliment enough the villa, the management company whilst out there were brilliant too, Derek's attention to detail is second to none he wants you to have a great holiday and we certainly did. I cried when we left, we shall definitely return, we have been bitten by the Rotonda bug and there is no getting over it! Now just to get my lottery numbers to come up and I'll be on Gasparilla Island in a glitter sprayed golf buggy!

Beautiful villa in a lovely location with easy access to the beaches and shopping, it had everything that you could possibly need. Derek and Wendy was extremely helpful in sending out the literature on local restaurants and places to visit etc. having visited Florida for the last 25 years we would definitely recommend this villa and we will be returning soon.

This is not a rental house, it's home from home, it makes you kick off your shoes and exhale. This was our 24th rental house and never have I felt so relaxed. Larger than average pool, with all the amenities you will ever need. Rotonda is ideally placed to visit between Tampa & Naples so day trips are easy. Although the many beaches with free parking & free facilities within 15 minutes drive may tempt you not to stray far. For wildlife lovers manatees can be seen at Gasparilla Island and from Venice pier dolphins (especially at sunset) & Rays. Derek the owner makes the transaction as simple as possible. Will definitely be returning.

Pleased you saw some wildlife, Gasparilla Island is fantastic nearly every time we visit we have seen Manatees and Dolphins.

Hope we can help you in the future.

A very peaceful location. We found the house spacious clean and modern. A good sized southwest facing heated pool backing onto a canal and woodland. We especially enjoyed our evenings dining by the pool watching the sunset. We will return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, like you we love to sit on the lanai and relax, watching the sunset and hoping to catch sight of some wildlife. In fact in May my wife would not go out for a meal sometimes because she would rather dine on the lanai and watch the wildlife.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful well kept villa, one of the nicest we've ever stayed in during our 25 years of visiting Florida. The nearby beaches are lovely and a nice change from the frantic pace of Orlando and the 'mouse'. If you like 'nature' you can't go wrong with this villa, being right on a nature reserve and close to several canals. The villa itself is large and comfortable and would easily accommodate two families with plenty of room for everyone. Derek, the owner is very easy to deal with and provides plenty of information about the area. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lynne for your review of our villa and your kind comments, we are delighted that you found everything to your satisfaction, and enjoyed your vacation. I still pinch myself when I am sat on the lanai taking in the view of the Nature Reserve, we feel so lucky to have bought that plot of land in the beginning.
Hope we can help you again in the Future.
