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 !!

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 Long Meadow

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.

Luxurious and Spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this beautiful home from the moment we all stepped in. We were so pleased! There are vaulted ceilings and space galore. The pictures pale in comparison to the real thing. The large rooms and private areas make this a wonderful place to vacation with more than one family. The kitchen was well-equipped and especially easy to prepare food. (Publix is only 2 miles away) The master suite is huge with a beautiful bath/shower...feeling very pampered after a week here.

We saw a few aligators floating down the canal as well as Egrets and many turtles. Englewood beach is just 15-20 minutes away with fun places to dine on the water and Boca Grande is 30 minutes to the south with nice shops and a great place to find seashells. We will definitely stay here again! 5 Stars Plus!!

The house was everything that was described

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay. The house is exactly how it is described in the notes. The beaches are close by. If you injoy golf the house came with four golf passes that save us a ton of money. Plus the golf courses are with in minutes of the house. We brought out granddaughter she is 18 months and they had ever thing needed for her. She really enjoyed the pool and I had a great time with her in the pool.

I really can’t say enough about the house.

My wife is already planning another trip.

Thanks again for letting us use your beautiful home.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consist of three couples in their 30's. We felt like we each had our own wing with a bedroom and bathroom, but there's plenty of bedrooms and spaces to sleep for more than 10 people comfortably by our count. There's a large outdoor space and pool along with a canal for fishing. Plenty of bikes are provided for any amount of guest. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already there. Our group can't say enough about the house and location. Quiet neighborhood with plenty to offer. It's a ten minute drive to beautiful beaches and amazing waterfront restaurants. We have been traveling to this area every February for the past five years and this home has been our favorite out of any of our accommodations. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was perfect! We had a mixed grouped staying which included my husband, my Mom, a 2 year old, a 14 year old, and myself. We all had a great time and loved the Home. The home was gorgeous and very well equipped. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need including a margarita machine! The pool was large and very refreshing on the days the weather cooperated for us. The beds were very comfortable and the room were spacious. The futon in the master bedroom was a great surprise. We let our daughter sleep there and it was perfect. The room was plenty large enough to accommodate all. We enjoyed using the grill and relaxing in the screened in outdoor patio. There was ample seating indoors and outdoors. There’s plenty of towels for the pool. There were chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys to use when we went to the beach. The bikes were a nice bonus to use also. The property manager Robert was awesome. We were unable to find the grill brush the first day and he immediately brought us a new one. The owner Kathy was very nice and easy to work with during the booking and stay. There were every kind of store and restaurants close by and many activities available close by too. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have an enjoyable relaxing vacation. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. I hope to stay again in the future:)

Wonderful Week! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Christmas week at this property with our adult children and their families. It was our first time to venture into a VRBO experience, and we could not have asked for more! Nine adults, two children, and a baby, and more than enough space for everyone's needs. The property is just as it is presented on the website. The photos are accurate to the interior as well.

We spent most of our time by the pool or in the kitchen, and both exceeded our expectations. My daughter is a baker, and inquired a few weeks in advance of our visit whether the kitchen had a stand mixer? The owner informed us that it did not. However, about a week before our visit, I got a message from Kathy informing us that they had purchased a stand mixer to "enhance our baking experience" while at the home!! Our daughter was thrilled!

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the cooking and bake ware that you could need, lots of plastic ware for out by the pool, and oooh, yes, that margarita machine was fun!!

The pool was WONDERFUL! We paid the additional (VERY reasonable) fee for the pool to be heated during our visit, and it was just perfect! While the air temps were in the high 70's and low 80's during our visit, it did drop into the 50's at night. Without the heat, the pool would not have been enjoyable at all in December.

There were a lot of "extras" at the house that aren't mentioned in the listing... Boogie boards, coolers, and fishing poles for the beach.... A set of golf clubs for those who don't travel with their own... There was a crib AND a Pack-n-Play for our littlest one... More bikes than we expected with lots of choices and helmets in all sizes...

We also initiated a BRAND NEW gas grill during our visit!

The area was not "touristy," as are many other Florida destinations. We met many friendly, local residents on our walks. It felt like home.

Our experience with the owners was exceptional from our first inquiry in February through a follow-up message the day of our departure wishing us a "Happy New Year!" Kathy was responsive to ALL of our questions and concerns. We received a call from the property manager on our first day to check in, and we weren't sure if the pool was functioning properly. He was at the house within the hour to check on it and assure us that it was working fine.

I highly recommend this property and these owners! No needs went unmet, and we had a wonderful week of making memories together in this beautiful home!!!
