This beautiful fully air conditioned, three bedroom home is located in the deed restricted residence of Rotonda West.This quiet neighborhood with four golf courses is centrally located, minutes to beaches at Englewood, Boca Grande, and Manasota Key.

The beautifully landscaped 2500sq.ft. home is situated on a double lot overlooking a large pond and 20 acre palm treed park. Due to the southern exposure, the pool and lanai have all day sunshine.

Rotonda West is classified as a bird sanctuary with frequent appearances of native birds such as Osprey, Herons, Bald Eagles, Ibis, Egrets, Wood stork, Woodpeckers, Mocking birds,Blue Jays, Cardinals etc.

Nearby boating ,10 minute drive, and fishing are extremely popular with various charted agencies offering a variety of boating and fishing adventures. Inter-coastal and offshore fishing is world class. The boating is as good as south west Florida has to offer. Dolphin and manatee sightings are most common.

Local amenities include the white sandy beaches of Englewood, Boca Grande, Venice and Siesta Key. Retail shopping is available at the Port Charlotte Mall, 15 minutes away,exclusive St.Armand's Circle at Sarasota or Ellenton mall, north of Sarasota.

Why Greg McPherson chose Rotonda West

I love this location! We can fish, boat and enjoy the beaches without the crowds found at the other locations. Great local shopping and short trips to outlet malls meet all my retail needs, Bealls and the Port Charlotte Mall are some of my favorite locations.

This spacious 2500sq.ft. home allows couples plenty of room to do their own thing. The pocket door separating the guest rooms from the kitchen and master bedroom, permits a quiet and private space .

The sets of sliding glass doors from the bedrooms, great room and kitchen offer at great view of palms and the wild life at your back door.

The southern exposure on the pool/ lanai has offered us many hours of sunshine to swim and relaxation throughout the fall and winter season, a must for visitors looking to get away from the cold up North.

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was our second time in this immaculate home. We have been enjoying every minute of our stay. Everything you could possibly want or need is provided, the house is spotless and the furniture and house is clean and well taken care of. The pool is big, clean and ideally situated to get sun throughout a day. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners and the property manager. We are looking forward to returning next year.

A dream holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 3 that have been taking our annual vacation in and around Rotonda for the last 10 years as we love this part of Florida so much. Over the years we have rented many fantastic properties and this property proved to be no exception.

All our dealings with Greg and Jo-Anne have been first class and all enquiries dealt with in a timely and courteous manner.

Upon arrival we found the property to be just as described with the rooms (especially the second bedroom) seeming even bigger than we expected. The property was extremely clean and very well appointed with everything that you would need in a home away from home. We were delighted to find that we also had use of 3 bikes and enjoyed daily rides in and around Rotonda especially around the golf cart paths on the Palms Golf Course (around a 10 minute ride from the villa).

The pool is nice and large and benefits from full sun exposure from early morning to sunset and we enjoyed many hours either enjoying the pool or sitting under the shaded lanai with the fan on listening to music via the amazing outdoor tv.

We really loved the outlook over the large pond at the rear of the villa where we saw many alligators, woodpeckers, egrets, ibis, red cardinals, squirrels and more - if wildlife is your thing you will thoroughly enjoy this location and even if not, it is so beautiful just to sit back either under the lanai or in the pool and just soak up the sun in peace and quiet and enjoy the wonderfully landscaped gardens.

The property is located close (around a 20 minute drive) to many stunning beaches, good restaurants and shopping malls, details of which can be found in the very helpful folders of information left in the villa for your use.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property which is suitable for everyone - we certainly plan to return without a doubt - enjoy, this is a piece of paradise!

We will come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in December/January 2015-2016. We felt very comfortable as soon as we arrived. If you need something, you'll find it in this house. Greg and Jo-Ann thought of every small details for the security and convenience of our kids (3 years and 3 month old). The rooms are bigger then they appear in the pictures. Extra clean and very well decorated. Beautiful beach in Englewood (15-20 minutes). If it rains, you can go shopping in Port Charlotte (20 min). Tennis court are not too far (4-5 min by car). We already miss the place but we will surely come back next year! Highly recommended! You just can not be disappointed!

Thanks again Jo-Ann and Greg for sharing your home. You'll hear about us soon! ;)

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If I could live in this house, I would!

The house is extremely clean, functional, comfortable, beautiful inside and out, with quality furniture and decorative accents. The house is equipped for every possible need, conveniently located within a short distance to amazing beaches, and shopping. The heated pool is superb! We spent a lot of relaxing hours there, enjoying

the scenery and beautiful birds.

Owners are very friendly and accommodating, they thought of every small detail, to make your vacation flawless.

We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful 3b home with amazing pool, not overlooked

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jul/Aug 2015. This home is set in a very quiet area and has everything you could need with lots of extras. The house is wonderfully furnished, extremely comfortable and well maintained. Our teenagers were blown away by the second bedroom with its own comfy sitting area for two with television. Due to weather we didn't get as much use of the pool as we would have liked but it is a beautiful pool with it's own television should you need it but we just enjoyed the wonderful view beyond, it is beautiful, so relaxing. The owners have ensured that there is all you could need for visits to the amazing beaches, umbrella, chairs, cool boxes,towels. Plenty of information to help you get around. Exceptional service from the management should you need it. We have been staying in and around this area for many years and can safely say this is one of the best. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this property. Thank you to Greg and JoAnn for sharing your home.
