About the Property
When guests arrive at our home and enter through the front door, the first thing they notice is our home has been decorated in a tasteful Floridian style. Everything is provided for our guests -- just bring your clothes and personal items.
Retire to the master bedroom's king size bed to read a book or watch TV (Smart). Master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. 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.
The spacious living area and formal dining area comfortably seat our guests. The family room has a large smart TV. 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.
Full laundry facilities contain a washing machine, dryer, laundry tub, iron, ironing board, and drying rack. Initial detergent and fabric sheets are supplied.
The lanai overlooks a fresh water pond and the first green of Pine Valley Golf Course. The lanai is screened with an electrically heated pool (and evening solar pool blanket), 3 ceiling fans, patio table, 6 chairs, 2 loungers, a gas grill, Smart TV, and a relaxing 4 piece conversational set. The lanai area also has access to the guest bathroom for added convenience.
Air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout. Our home 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 three beach cruisers with helmets available for riding around Rotonda West. We also keep a few fishing poles and some tackle in the garage for the guests — nothing fancy — just some basic equipment for fun.
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.
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.
NO SMOKING IN HOUSE
NOT CHILD FRIENDLY
If you value peace, you'll find it here. If you love anything golfing, you can play a few rounds or watch golfers everyday from the lanai. There are all types of wildlife to enjoy. We keep an old pair of binoculars on one of the bookshelves for wildlife viewing. We have seen all kinds of birds, alligators (of course), wild boars, coyotes, bobcats, etc.
Why Kids Love It
I do NOT consider our home kid friendly.
Because of the artwork, area rugs, glass tables, and breakables in the house, we do not consider our home "kid friendly". We do not provide any baby items such as baby beds, high chairs, playpens, toys, etc.
This is a cul-de-sac street so there is very little traffic. My neighbor on one side has a double lot, so the lot next to me contains a berm with palm trees which allows additional privacy for our lanai. On the other side of my home, the lot is empty. Across the street, there are no homes built (yet). I feel there is so much space around us. Also, having the golf course behind the house provides a lot of entertainment (no offense to any of the golfers out there). I am not a golfer, but I do enjoy watching them on the first green.
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. For those who enjoy thrift stores, you can spend hours/days going thru the many shops. Fabulous restaurants and bars are close by. Many types of local music can also be found.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I purchased this property as my future retirement home and a place where my sons and their families could stay for vacation and relaxation. We make it down at least 4 or 5 times a year to enjoy beautiful Florida. In June 2020 I finally retired. I continue to rent the house on a limited basis.
I earned a degree in Associate in Applied Science, Hospitality and Tourism, so providing excellent guest service is my number one priority. That first impression when you arrive at our home, or when you walk in the front door, will set the tone for your stay and I understand that concept completely. We do everything we can to ensure you are not just satisfied, but receive more than you expected. My goal is to have our guests return to our home for additional visits, not just one visit.
Why this property? When I was searching for a home in Florida, I was overwhelmed with the number of houses that I viewed. However, when I walked into this home there was something about it. I immediately felt a peacefulness, a serenity, that I had never felt in other homes I viewed. I truly hope that all my guests will feel the same way once they walk thru the front door.
Calendar last updated: May 13, 2022
From the moment we walked in to the time we left, we felt right at home. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could ever need, including a coffee grinder for my fresh ground coffee every morning on the lanai. I just loved watching the cranes, moorhens and golfers every day. Donna is an absolute delight to work with and always got back to me right away. We never went away for a month before, but can’t wait to do it again!

Barbara,Thank you for this review. I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our home. If I change my mind about renting in 2023, I will certainly be in touch.Donna
We absolutely loved this home! We enjoyed the comfortable and spacious rooms, the Lanai to sit and relax, the pool, and the kitchen with everything available to prepare meals. The home had everything PLUS! I could definitely tell much thought, care, and preperation was put into making this home suitable for guests. The location was perfectly close to all we did while we vacationed. Thank you!

Thank you for the lovely review. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your vacation in our home and were able to make some wonderful memories.Donna
Enchanting and comfortable!
I had the good fortune to spend 2 weeks in this gorgeous home. I was wowed the moment I walked in the door - this is a beautifully appointed home. The view from the lanai is just amazing. I enjoyed many a morning with a coffee, and evenings with a cocktail while listening to the breeze rustle through the palm trees. Beautiful home with a view. The best part has to be the pains the owner has taken to ensure that a guest's every need is met - they provide for all the creature comforts one desires in a home or on the beach. Highly recommend.

Aparna, thank you for the lovey review. We try to ensure our guests always feel comfortable and welcome.Donna
A New Home in Paradise
The home is exceptionally maintained and appointed. The grand lanai is the place to be for viewing the beautiful landscape, golfers, sunsets and lounging in the ultra-clean pool. We enjoyed local golf, beaches, shopping and dining. Every day we discovered a new locally owned small business or restaurant to frequent. This home and the area provide unique experiences you won't find elsewhere. We plan to return as soon as possible to stay in this amazing home away from home.

Thank you for the positive review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home. We hope that you will return very soon.Donna
Proximity to beaches and dining is perfect, very short drive to Boca Grande or Englewood for dining, shopping or a day at the beach. The lanai is one of the most peaceful places to sit and relax. We enjoy watching the morning golfers across the pond. We have been staying in this home for a couple of weeks for the last 4 years and highly recommend to everyone.

The Perfect Stay
The most beautiful Villa. Perfect location and the villa is just Perfect in every way. The wildlife is fantastic to sit and watch from the Lanai, as-well as the sunset. The villa is alway immaculate and well presented. Donna the owner has always been nothing but lovely and accommodating to deal with. Been coming for a number of years now and hope to do so for many more.

Neil,Thank you for the lovely review. I am so glad that your family enjoys their time in our home. Looking forward to having you back in October.Donna
Love the peace and quiet!
The home is perfect for golfers with 4 courses very close and more near by. The lanai overlooks the green of one of the courses. The house is everything it is described to be and more. Extremely clean and well maintained. Very near everything you could want or need. Great for a couples retreat or families.

Anita, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I agree with you that RW is a wonderful place for golfers. I hope you will be our guests again in the future. Donna
After searching for months on other websites, we came across and found this beautiful home. We were able to call the owner, Donna, and speak about our upcoming trip. She was so helpful and accommodating! The manager was also so kind and helped us immediately. Donna’s place is so clean and really has everything you could possibly need. It looks as though the house had a professional interior designer. The setting is so serene and breathtaking. We will absolutely book here again and never go to another hotel! Thank you for everything!!

Villa has everything and more which you could wish for and is spottlessly clean Great beaches nearby there is so much to do and explore nearby, Boca Grande is worth a visit as are all the gulf beaches, you won't be disappointed

This home was lovely, in a private setting, which was very comfortable and was decorated with lovely furnishings and art. The owner was extremely attentive to any issue that would arise. We would definitely stay there again.
