About Ann Brice

We have owned our home in Rotonda since May 2006 and began renting from September 2006.

Since then the majority of our rentals come from return visitors and we are now pleased to call these guests our friends. We welcome first time visitors as regularly too.

We have made personal touches to the home that our guests seem to enjoy such as an array of reading material ( some kindly donated by our guests), games, bikes, tennis equipment, dvds and pictures.

Our guest book comments have been very complimentary (thank you all) and our management team have been praised by all concerned.

We sincerely care about our guests enjoying our home as much as we do and with 24/7 care from our management company, they do ensure all is well. We welcome any phone enquiries about the area and our home.

Ann Brice purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ann Brice chose White Marsh

Having visited the area on holiday in 2001 we fell in love with the peace and quiet, the proximity to the beautiful beaches (and shopping malls) and the absolute rest that you get in the Rotonda area.

From the tranquillity of Rotonda you are only 1.5 hours from Busch Gardens, 2.5 from Disney and 3.5 from Miami. Therefore you get the best of both worlds on a stay.

With the ferry to Key West from Fort Myers daily taking 3 hours, it was ideally situated to explore the whole of Florida. The area is mainly residential with a huge mix of full time and seasonal visitors, lots of space and very little traffic, so you can cycle around the area as a family safely.Each time we return it becomes harder and harder to come back to the UK. We hope you feel the same too.

What makes this villa unique

Our home is extremely well maintained, spacious and has the added advantage of areas of privacy, with the Master bedroom not only having a huge bed, but a TV, Sofa and Chair. Our guests say there is everything you need provided to enjoy a relaxing, leisurely holiday. Only minutes from the 776, 771 the access to the 41 and the I75 this opens up the whole of Florida quickly.

You can enjoy breakfast outside in the shade or in the sunlight front porch alternatively the nook overlooking the pool. When the sun hits the lanai about 9.30/10.00am it then stays with you all day.

With tennis courts, golf courses and cycle paths all within 5 minutes drive (walking distance for some of them) you can be as active as you like. Alternatively with 2 bookcases crammed with books lounging around is great .

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful home with everything you could need for a relaxing home from home stay. Far exceeded our expectations. David and Gwen

Truly Amazing Villa. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation this is the vacation spot for you.

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to south west Florida and have stayed in the Rotonda area several times. The villa is located in a blissfully quiet area, perfect for relaxation, the pool area is in sunshine from mid-morning until late evening.

The villa was immaculately clean and tidy, yet very homely and welcoming, very much a home from home. All are needs were catered for, from various outdoor equipment, to a choice of dvds and books.

Fantastic beaches within a short drive, we spent most are days at Boco Grande which is fabulous.

All in all 10/10 and would thoroughly recommend.

Special interest holidays:

Fishing is almost a national sport in Florida, and whilst rods are provided most keen anglers do bring their own. The area is extremely flat and with many state parks around, therefore cyclists are also catered for. We do have pleasure bikes as part of the rental not touring ones. Keen sailors can hire boats, jet skis or parasail within a 10 minute drive. Nature lovers can visit the state parks and wildlife enthusiasts can see a huge variety of birds and local wildlife not far from the villa. Within driving distance are several outlet malls which are a shoppers paradise, lots of bargins to be had all year round.


The nearest beach is just a 15 minute drive away but with over 15 beaches to choose from, including the No 1 beach in America, within 1.5 hours drive you will be spoiled for choice. The Gulf coast boasts 5 of Americas top beaches and with miles of white powdered sand to walk on you will see why. Many public beaches will have all the facilities you need many with free parking but may not have facilities.


Tampa airport is 1.5 hours away and you can get direct flights from the UK.

Orlando is 2.5 hours, whilst Miami is c.3 hours.

Fort Myers is 1 hour away and can be reached by internal US flights from many major US cities.

Car hire is essential in this area.


There are many restaurants and shops catering for all tastes just a short drive away, with some menus and locations provided in the Villa.

Port Charlotte with its harbour and shopping mall is just 15 mins away with larger shopping malls at Ellenton Prime Outlets(50 mins) and Naples- Miramar (1 hour).

Busch Gardens is easily do-able for the day being 1.5 hours away and the International Shopping mall close to Tampa airport is a must for the designer labels.

Further Details:

There is a small local plaza within 5 mins drive with a great restaurant (I recommend the Margaritas!), laundry, hairdressers, sandwich shop,liquor store and DVD rental. Within 10 minutes you will find major supermarkets, shops, banks, restaurants etc. There is a wide selection of restaurants within 15 mins drive and a cinema and bowling alley at Port Charlotte Mall.

Boats can be hired for fishing trips or you can go on a tour and watch the sun go down within a 5-10 minute drive. You can even fish in the canal network that backs onto most of the properties in the Rotunda area.

There are many bike trails around the area too and Rotunda Community Park is walkable and has free tennis courts. The wild life watching often comes for free.
