Craig and Sarah purchased this villa in 2015
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
