About the Owner
John and I had been visiting Rotonda since 2001 and could not think of going any where more relaxing and quiet for our vacations. We were fortunate enough to be able to consider buying in 2006 and after working with a great realtor we walked into Medalist and fell in love. We are in our 50's and working towards retirement when we can spend as much time in our home as some of our regular guests do.
5 based on 6 traveler reviews
Spaceous, immaculately clean, well equipped, everyhting you need for a great stay. Property management people brilliant, owners delightful to deal with. close to local beaches, quiet relaxing evenings on the lanai. Peaceful location, one of the best holiday we have ever had!
Such a lovely home and wonderful owners!
This house is so lovely. It has everything you need. The kitchen is great. The bedrooms are all perfect. We loved the master bedroom, large closet, and HUGE bathroom. The pool is wonderful. Our kids enjoyed hours in it! But since we didn't travel all the way from Virginia just to swim, we had to do some exploring too. We really enjoyed Boca Grande. It's not too far and well worth the trip and the toll charge. The beaches are beautiful (we saw a manatee!). The little town is filled with shops and restaurants. We also drove to Siesta Beach. It's further (about 1 hour) but the powder white sand was worth the trip. Just be sure to go early to get parking. We took a boat tour on the bay and saw tons of Dolphins. That was really fun too. Last but certainly not least, the owners of this home were so great to deal with. They made everything so easy. Thanks so much Ann and John!
Amazing Vacation Stay
Truly Amazing Villa. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation this is the vacation spot for you. The villa is very well maintained and the owners have thought of everything imaginable to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We started off booking one week a year
and quickly jumped to a 2 week stay. The small town appeal and the beautiful beaches that are not crowded add to the majestic and relaxing experience. There is plenty to see and do in the area and Fort Myers is just a short drive from the villa. Port Charlotte is only 15 minutes from the villa and offers a shopping mall, cinema and all the amenities of a larger town.
The abundance of wildlife is amazing to watch and appreciate and the peacefullness of sitting on the lanai and enjoying the pool, all the while taking in the amazing stars and serenity around you. A truly captivating experience.
The owners are very easy to do business with and really go out of their way to make the villa so inviting. This villa offers all the conveniences of home and all the relaxation you can take in, with Fun for everyone young and old without the hassels or inconvenieneces of staying in a Hotel. We enjoy our summer stays so much we booked the villa for my birthday in October and it could not have been a more pleasurable experience! Thanks for all the wonderful memories!
Dream Vacation in Florida
For several years now we have left the harsh Michigan winters to vacation in this lovely Florida villa in Rotonda West. It is truly a home away from home---a tastefully furnished and spacious place to relax, read, swim, play golf, and enjoy peaceful nature, but just a short drive to shopping malls, good restaurants, and glorious sunsets on Englewood Beach . With three bedrooms, two baths, and a large swimming pool, and two car garage, it is a better value than a resort or hotel. Our kids and grandkids love to visit us: Kendall (age 10) "I like the big house. I can swim when I want to." Patrick (age 13) "I like riding the bike to see the alligators in the canals and the five minute drive to fish off the pier." A wonderful place for the entire family to enjoy, or a great getaway for a couple who like to entertain in style.
Beautiful Spacious Home
We stayed in this Villa last year and will be leaving quite soon for another wonderful vacation in this spacious home! The owners, John and Ann are lovely people to deal with. They are so helpful and kind! The Rotonda was a "little" overwhelming the first couple of days, but we soon learned our way around, with the help of our Garman! After a few days, we decided we loved the location! It's close to Sarasota Airport and just minutes from Port Charlotte and Fisherman's Village! Close to grocery stores, malls, beaches and of course, beauty shops!
We went on a Dinner Boat at Fisherman's Village last year, but are returning to Marina Jack's for the Dinner Boat this year, at Sarasota! There is so much to do and so many wonderful restaurants! The home is located in a very nice area. It has a wonderful place to go for a walk every morning! It is a very quiet neighborhood! It was so relaxing, just sitting and visiting around the pool. We loved visiting Gasparilla Island! And, if you enjoy watching boats, don't miss going to the Intercoastal waterways---the Jetties in Venice! Be sure and get one of the best hot dogs in the world at the little hot dog stand at the Jetties and sit and relax and enjoy the boats! Last year, we visited the Ringling Bros Circus Museum in Sarasota! It was so interesting! Also, Ft. Myers is probably less than an hour away! Thomas Edison museum is a must!
John and Ann's home is very well maintained! It is absolutely everything it is described to be and much more! The garage has sliding screen doors where you can sit and relax, when you are not sitting around the pool.
The home is wonderful for two couples or a family. The layout of the home makes it nice and private for everyone! We love the bedrooms, opening out to the pool! It is so nice to have use of the garage and be able to drive right in when we arrive home! If you choose to visit this home, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you again, John and Ann for sharing your lovely home with us! Looking forward to our visit coming up again real soon! We can hardly wait!

Great time in Rotonda West. Place is better than advertised. Extremely clean and spacious, my two younger children and wife loved it. All three bedrooms have access to pool area. Best thing about the place is the owners are easy and pleasant to deal with! Thanks again Ann for helping my family have such a great trip! *****!
From the Owner
“The high ceilings, the amazing chandeliers (until we have to clean them), the enormous master bedroom with the biggest bathroom we had ever seen, got us very interested as we walked in. The lady who had the home built had thought of everything and the space, feel and finish of the home sold it. By the time we got out to the west facing pool and lania, the check was written!.”
