When guests arrive at our home and enter through the front door, the first thing they notice is our home has been furnished by a professional interior decorator in a tasteful, distinct, and unique Floridian style which makes it a one of a kind gem. Everything is provided for our guests -- just bring your clothes and personal items. Please note: our home is not child friendly.
Retire to the master bedroom's king size bed to read a book or watch TV. Treat yourself to the Jacuzzi tub or a refreshing shower in the master bath. On the other side of the house are two comfortable guests’ bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. These 2 guest rooms share their own private bath which has direct access to the lanai. All linens, towels (including bath, beach and pool) are included.
The spacious living area comfortably seats 6 guests. Sit back and enjoy the flat screen TV to watch cable TV, or perhaps one of the many DVDs supplied by the owners. If you are not fond of TV, entertain yourself with high speed internet, wifi, a selection of board games, checkers, chess, puzzles, cards, or a small library of books to enjoy by the pool.
The kitchen is completely equipped with all large and small appliances. The large breakfast bar allows for lively conversation while meals are being prepared. As you stand in the kitchen, you can look out over the lanai and see the pool and golf course. Initial salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, paper towels, napkins, dish detergent, and garbage bags are provided.
The formal dining room has seating for 6 guests.
Full laundry facilities contain a washing machine, dryer, laundry tub, iron, ironing board, and drying rack. Initial detergent and fabric sheets are supplied.
Open 1 of the 4 sets of sliding patio doors to the lanai and take in the scenery. You will find the fresh water canal and the first green of Pine Valley Golf Course just behind the house. The lanai is screened with a solar heated pool (and evening solar pool blanket), ceiling fan, patio table, 6 chairs, 3 loungers, and a gas grill. The solar heated pool is west facing so the sun basks down on the pool most of the day. The pool can be floodlit at night for those romantic swims. The lanai area also has access to the guest bathroom for added convenience. The lanai is great for enjoying breakfast and coffee in the morning, lunch, or a glass of wine and dinner during the evening.
Air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout.
Our villa is thoroughly maintained and cleaned after the departure of our guests, and rechecked prior to new arrivals.
For your trip to the beach, there are several beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas, and a cooler. In the garage are four beach cruisers with helmets available for riding around Rotonda West.
This home is on a cul-de-sac street so traffic is minimal. During the evening hours, enjoy the privacy, peacefulness, and thousands of stars. Daytime offers the opportunity to see many species of birds and wildlife as the home is very close to Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park.
This home is ideally situated just minutes from several public beaches: Englewood Beach, Stump Pass Beach, Blind Pass (aka Middle) Beach, Don Petro Island State Park, and Gasparilla Island State Park. In addition, 14 minutes to Cape Haze Marina, and 26 minutes to Gasparilla Island (Boca Grande). First class salt water fishing and water sports facilities all within easy reach. There are 8 public golf courses within 5 miles. For shoppers, there is Boca Grande, Englewood’s Dearborne Street, historic Venice, Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, plus many local artistic and outlet stores. Fabulous restaurants and bars are close by. Many types of local music can also be found.
New in 2017: Ask about our Concierge Services: The villa offers a Concierge Service ready to assist in any way to ensure you have the most memorable & enjoyable experience possible during your stay with us. Whether it is arranging restaurant reservations, car rentals, shopping excursions (Boca Grande, Fisherman's Village, Outlets, etc), transportation services (Sanibel, Captiva, Siesta) to the beach, dinner, or maybe just a designated driver for an evening on the town. We also have a never ending list of water activities here on the West Coast: fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat tours to local islands for dinner & a beautiful sunset. Oh, and let's not forget the Craig Cats are new this year! Let us help you make memories that will last a lifetime.
Also this summer, ask about our Turtle Patrol on the beach. Five or six mornings a week around sunrise, we hit the Boca Grande beach to locate Endangered Sea Turtle Nests. This is free of charge, but you are most welcome to make a donation to the Boca Grande Sea Turtle Association in their name only. There is a limit of 2 people per day. The trip is very educational. This is available May1st thru October 31st.
If you are interested in any of the concierge services or Turtle Patrol, please let the owner know when making your reservations.
Perfect for your idyllic relaxing vacation! Come, and join us in Rotonda West. We look forward to having you as our guest in our home.
