About the property

Beautiful and elegant 5 Star Villa, 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom with canal view.



By far and away, the largest and most elegant 5 bedroom home available in Rotonda! Almost 1 1/2 times larger than the average 4 or 5 bedroom home. Two master suites with direct access to the lanai.

4 Golf Passes to the 5 Rotonda Golf Courses are included and can easily save you up to $1000 per week! This beautiful and spacious ( over 4000 sq. ft. under roof ) vacation villa was custom designed to lend itself to great entertaining areas and spacious enough for the large family too! With five bedrooms and two queen size pull out air mattress sofa beds, the house will easily be able to accommodate 14 people. There are enough bicycles for 10 people (5 adults, 3 children and a 1970's Schwinn Twin!) The 1st Master Suite has a bathroom that is out of this world ! An over-sized roman shower, a Jacuzzi tub and his and hers granite vanities help give our home the grandeur found only in world class resorts.

Versatility abounds in this home which is situated on an over-sized lot bordering fresh water canal with side entry garage and extra large drive. There is a see through view to the south west facing- pool (which has ample deck space) from the time you enter the double glass entry doors! The list of upgrades and updates is impressive, including tile flooring with new carpeting in bedrooms, stunning kitchen that would delight the most discriminating cook with wood cabinets (some with glass fronts), granite counters, island, cook top with pot water filler, and built in stainless oven and micro including bread warmer, all overlooking the family room and breakfast nook out to the pool/waterfront. The list continues with an over-sized garage, intercom, tinted windows and doors, tray ceilings, Jacuzzi tub in master & 2nd bath, dual zone a/c systems, outside perimeter lights, upgraded fans in all rooms, and the list continues.

It is generously equipped with every amenity from flat screen televisions in every room, several bicycles, fishing poles, to a fancy margarita maker and more... Located in a golfing community with park and tennis courts close by and within approximately 15 to 20 minutes to Englewood and Boca Grande gulf beaches, it is everything you could want and more for the perfect getaway !!

4 complimentary golf passes to 5 Rotonda golf courses. Just pay cart fees. Save up to $40 per person per round!

Complimentary wi-fi.

About Kathy Dawn

We are from Kentucky and love our Wildcats! We purchased this beautiful home due to it's location which is near beaches, challenging golf courses, walking trails, nature preserve parks, great restaurants, shopping and major attractions.

Kathy Dawn purchased this estate in 2014

Why Kathy Dawn chose Rotonda West

Our first visit to Rotonda West was spring 2013. We immediately fell in love with the area and knew in our hearts that this was the community that we would retire to. Every single item on our checklist was there.

1. Fabulous beaches only minutes away.

2. World class golf within the community.

3. Bike and walking trails.

4. Dining and shopping choices nearby.

Just imagine yourself enjoying our typical day. Morning 18 holes, then enjoy lunch on the patio/lanai, be at the beach shortly afternoon, relax, read a book, hunt for sharks teeth and nap until mid-afternoon, after a short drive home, get ready for dinner, enjoy dinner at one of the nearby restaurants where you can watch the boats while dining, finally, be home in time to watch the sunset from our patio/lanai. You can do all of this in a day!

What makes this estate unique

Over 4000 sq. ft. living space. Elegant master bedroom with oversize roman shower. Fully equipped chef's kitchen. Truly has rooms to sleep 14 people. Wireless bluetooth. Electrically heated Southwest facing pool.

spacious home in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Spacious home and nice layout so everyone can find a space for quiet time. Had superior service from Rob, local property manager. Called on day one about a broken ceiling fan and he replaced it that night! Would recommend for a family vacation.

Fabulous Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Albatross. Thanks Kathy for being so helpful in arranging for our stay! We felt like we were home during the entire time. There are all the things you need to enjoy a beach and golfing vacation. We really enjoyed the bikes, with so many scenic bikes trails right off the property. We all wished that we could have stayed longer and am looking forward to coming back to Rotonda West next winter!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a two week stay at Albatross. Everyone loved it. There were bikes, golf passes for the golfers and the wonderful pool was used all day long by the little ones. Excellent beds too! Kathy and Vic are good people and I strongly recommend their home for your use!

Pretty Much Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa we have stayed in after 20 years of Florida holidays. The pictures on the website do not do it justice, as it is even more astounding when you arrive there in person. First impression is the hugeness of the house, it is beautifully decorated and presented, very well equipped and comfortable. The outside area is excellent and very well equipped. The pool is great for playing and swimming.

The outlook is lovely, with a great view of the canal. Many peaceful hours were spent gazing out, watching the alligators drifting along in the water. We used the bikes, which was very interesting. They are a bit different from ours and I was a little perturbed that mine had no brakes! But I soon got the hang of it. The area is nice and quiet, and we enjoyed a morning walk most days. The margarita maker has released a demon, however. We've just got to have one now!

We took a day-trip on the Key West Express. This was a very long day. The ferry took about four hours each way, but the drive took an hour and a half at each end. We left at 5.30am and got back at around 11pm, so be prepared if you want to do this. Also, make sure you arrive at the ferry port in plenty time as boarding is between 7 and 8am. The Conch Train Tour was really good. Key West is a fascinating place to see.

Restaurants: we went to Farlowes on the water, Primetime, Lock and Key, Whiskey Creek, The Hills, which are all fairly local. We had lovely meals at all of them and would recommend them all.

We would definitely recommend this villa, and if we come back down this way again, would really want to come back to this villa again.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the owners for helping us out when we were delayed due to Hurricane Matthew, by letting us stay an extra night. Both the owners and the management company are very approachable and helpful and made sure we were OK during the storm.
