About Craig and Sarah

We are Craig and Sarah Jeffery. We live and work in the UK. For a long time we have dreamt of a place in the sun to get away from British weather, we are lucky to have been able to make this dream come true. We hope you will share this home with us ...

Craig and Sarah purchased this villa in 2015

Why Craig and Sarah chose Rotonda West

We love Florida and we have been searching the ideal area for a long time. We discovered Rotonda West a couple of years ago, fell in love with the area and started planning on building a house that would really make us feel at home. Now River View is all that and it has been named after Sarah's childhood home in England. We think the name fits perfectly.

What makes this villa unique

We decided to build since we really wanted this home to be special. We wanted large, open rooms, with lots of "breathing" space, lots of light, sun, yet with privacy for everybody in the family . We had some very specific requirements, especially with regard to our bedroom, so we planned on two master bedrooms so that our friends also may experience the same sensation of privacy it gives us. We also planned on a great room for being together and a den/office and a comfortable dining area. Everything has been planned with care and attention to detail . including a 50" TV in the great room and 1 in each master suite and in the den/office. It was a sometimes frustrating planning and organizing task but we are so happy with the result ...... We trust you will enjoy the home as much as we do.

Brilliant holiday in a brilliant house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Craig and Sarah for an amazing stay in your home. The house had everything we needed for a brilliant holiday in the sun. There were four bikes for us to cycle around the friendly neighbourhood and into the nature reserve. We found chairs and a cool box in the garage to take to one of the many beautiful beaches in the area. The kitchen was very nice and had everything we needed to cook. The beds were comfy and the rooms were spacious. Especially the open planned Lounge area! We spent a lot of time relaxing outside and swimming in the heated pool. The river behind the house was a very good bonus, not only giving us great views whilst eating dinner, but also bringing all the wildlife right past the house. I even managed to spot a couple of alligators and plenty of turtles up close. All in all we had an amazing holiday here and would recommend it to anyone!!!

Quality home from home

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this lovely appointed home from home house, close by to golf courses and local beaches which we thoroughly enjoyed. The low humidity at this time of year meant we could open up the sliding doors to the pool area and enjoy eating alfresco. The house location next to the river provides a great opportunity to watch the wildlife including numerous birds and turtles. The house has bikes for guests use which allowed us to get some exercise on the very quiet roads of Rotonda West. The beds and pillows were very comfortable which is a particular bugbear of ours but no worries here. The house had everything we needed for a relaxing stay and made the rest of the holiday easy to enjoy.

Life of peace and luxury...

  • 5 of 5

We would like to say a great thank you to Craig and Sarah for sharing their home with our family. We have had a fantastic holiday at 'River view' in Rotonda.

The villa is beautifully appointed, with every modern amenity that we could have wished for, including multimedia entertainment. We have lived the life of peaceful luxury here. The many local beaches are breathtaking. We visiting the rich and famous inhabitants and their idillic island of Boca Grande just across the causeway. We have chartered a speedboat and toured surrounding islands accompanied by a pod of dolphins and searched for sharks’ teeth on a private island - we would definately recommend it.

We found many great restaurants to dine at (when we could break ourselves away from the villa, of course) with great seafood and specialty beers. The Mall and Cinema multiplex at Port Charlotte provided fine alternatives to our children and we found Busch Gardens was just a reasonable day trip away at Tampa.

We even had a couple of visits from a local Aligator, who lazed his way up the river as if he owned the place, a few turtles and herons making swift departure as he arrived.

A very enjoyable stay! Thank you Craig and Sarah.

Excellent stay at River View

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Craig and Sarah for sharing their brand new home!

We were the very proud first renters of that property that we enjoyed thoroughly. It is spacious and well equipped (kitchen appliances/kitchenware, TVs and linen). My parents occupied the large master bedroom, while we were using the other side of the house closer to our 2 young girls (6 & 10) in the 2d smaller master bedroom but large enough for us.

We all had fun in the heated pool everyday and enjoyed the beautiful River View from the terrace every day too.

There are 3 bicycles in the garage (think to bring your own helmets for added protection) to enjoy cycling around the nice and quiet (flat) neighborhood.

The only downside of that great location I have to mention (which can be guessed from the map) is that it takes around 10 minutes each way to cruise around the large neighborhood to get in and back from the main highways.

There was a very comprehensive booklet prepared by the rental agency that helped us select couple of good fish restaurants we tested. We have had a good email communication with them.

Being not to close from a specific beach, we tested 4 nearby (Englewood North Beach and main Beach on Manasota key, Venice Beach and Boca Grande), which all had their different charms, but we have to warn travelers that some of us got bitten by fire ants in Englewood North Beach as we sat too close to the grassy area it seems).

Overall it has been a dream home we used for new year 2016 vacations (we enjoyed the fireworks of Sarasota on New Year's Eve) and I am very happy about that rental property, which I can recommend highly as the best I rented so far.

Owner's Response: Hello Daniel, we are happy you enjoyed our beautiful new house. We built this house with comfort, elegance and location in mind. You are less than 10 minutes from the main I-76 highway ... being closer would mean noise and that is the last thing you need in a residential community. Beaches are 15 minutes away ... did you try the fantastic Stump Pass National Park in Englewood ??? We look forward to seeing you again soon ! Craig and Sarah

Rotonda West is located close to beaches, shopping, restaurants and many must-see places ... Rotonda West has 5 great golf courses, some 5 minutes from this home. Venice, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda are close by. Sarasota is 40 minutes away. Everything is at your fingertips whether you are a museum, circus, or shopping fan.... not to forget every possible type of restaurant and whatever type of food you fancy.

Rotonda is the largest community located in the Englewood Florida area.

Rotonda West has obtained the "Sustaining Florida Community" title in 2000 from the Governor. The community of Rotonda is a large residential community with 6,500 homes on about 20,000 acres at the southern end of the Cape Haze peninsula. Comprised of a number of subdivisions, homes in Rotonda were erected based on their location. The inner circle of Rotonda includes homes that are only 1,600 square feet or larger, and the outer circle has only homes 1,200 square feet or larger.The original plans for Rotonda by the developers were to build a separate golf course for each of these subdivisions. There are six golf courses, including four operated by Rotonda Golf and Country Club and two by Pinemoor Golf Club. Thirty miles of picturesque canals, lakes and ponds wind through the community and offer fishing and boating opportunities for its residents.

Many exotic and beautiful birds call Rotonda West home, as it is a designated Bird Sanctuary. Nearby recreation facilities, beaches, theaters, sporting events, and fine restaurants are available for all. Clubs, activities, and many volunteer opportunities abound for those who wish to become involved. Rotonda West Community has a website: www.RotondaWest.org and a Community Events Calendar
