The community of Rotonda lies on Florida’s South Central Gulf Coast. Located right on the Hills public golf course, surrounded by the protected landscapes of the Stump Pass National Park and just moments from the stunning white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast, Rotonda holidays are exactly what you make of them.
There is no limit to the fun you can have from a self catering Rotonda villa. The beaches of the Gulf coast are just 4km from Rotonda, boasting astonishingly soft white sands, blissfully natural backdrops and warm, clear waters that cannot fail to endear even the most travelled visitor. If you can tear yourself away from the beach for just a few hours, there are a great range of water sports possibilities to enjoy too. The Gulf of Mexico is known as one of the world’s best fishing spots, with record fish regularly landed. There is no shortage of deep sea fishing charters to take, as well as sailing trips, scuba diving excursions and ample opportunities to surf and wind surf.
Rotonda is surrounded by fantastic golf courses. The Pine Valley Golf course is one of the best along the South Central Gulf Coast, whose fairways you will be able to look over from most of the holiday rental villas in Rotonda. Arranging a round is almost impossibly easy, and you will be very unlucky to have to wait for another group before you can tee-off. The courses locally are wonderfully landscapes, using the glorious natural landscape as a template, and providing an enjoyable challenge to every standard of golfer.
Nature abounds in the region. The Stump Pass Nature Park and the Don Pedro Island Nature Park, which is only accessible by boat, are both within a very short drive of a Rotonda villa, and are crossed by a great range of walking trails. Dolphin, otter and the gracious manatee can often be seen from Rotonda accommodation, and bird life thrives.
Anna Maria Island is a stunning place to visit on a day trip from a Rotonda holiday rental. With staggering beaches, secluded and unspoilt, abundant nature and some fantastic little restaurants to visit, it really is worth visiting Anna Maria Island whilst you are in the area.
The beaches and golf courses of Rotonda are a pleasure to visit throughout the year. Even on the coldest days, you can expect daily temperatures in excess of 25˚C, rising to around 35˚C during the heat of the day in June, July, August and September.
Tampa International Airport (TPA) is just 40km from a holiday rental villa in Rotonda, Florida. British Airways provides a regular service from London to Tampa, and there are ample hire car facilities on site.
