About Graham Harris

Hi,

This is Graham and Janet Harris. We holidayed on Florida’s Gulf Coast when our children were young and we always wanted to own a villa there.

The dream came true and now we’d like to share that holiday home from home with you.

Graham Harris purchased this villa in 2003

Why Graham Harris chose Rotonda West

We were shown a beautiful plot of land in 2001 and were told how one day it would overlook a lovely lake with a golf course fairway running down its centre. Would we like to have a luxury villa built there?

The answer was yes, and the result is showcased on these web pages.

It’s in a lovely, secluded area and is unoverlooked.

We like the wide open spaces of Rotonda West and its proximity to some of the loveliest beaches on the coast.

Do please enjoy having a good browse and we look forward to hearing from you.

What makes this villa unique

We love relaxing by the villa’s larger-than-average pool and enjoying the peace and quiet.

The two master bedrooms open out on to the lanai, so it’s so tempting to take an early morning dip in the warm water, or just read a chapter or two of a book before deciding how to spend the day.

Do we visit the gorgeous beach, take a trip to the local state park, tee off for a game of golf or pull out the tennis rackets for a quick knock-up on the nearby courts? Then there are the bikes in the garage.

The shopping mall is just a short drive away and there are always great buys to be had.

Or maybe today’s the day to just sit around and rest.

Hmmm, wish we were staying longer!

A home from home!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed staying at your Villa. We've had a fantastic time, went to Boca Grande, saw the Stone Crabs, played golf, went to Englewood and ate at loads of the restaurants, including Farlow's which was fantastic!

Shopping was great at Port Charlotte and we also saw a film at the Cinema there too - unlimited pop corn and coke!!!

All the recommendations on your web site were brilliant. and certainly helped plan our holiday there.

The villa is beautiful and really well kept; it certainly felt like home from home.

Thanks so much and we may well be back in touch soon!!

Stunning peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Well what a great location the villa is in. Extremely quiet and safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and the hoist into the pool made it very special for me. Even saw a gator trying to catch an egret, failed badly. The shower chair was perfect. Few hiccups but were dealt with very quickly. Port Charlotte less than 15 minutes away with a great shopping mall.

We enjoyed our time at the villa so much, we were hoping that we could book it again for the same 3 weeks next year. Sitting watching the sun go down was perfect. Highly recommended.

Experiences in Englewood

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful place to stay, we've been there many times already and can't get enough! So much to see and do in the area, always something new to explore. Fabulous accommodation, fabulous pool, bikes to ride, great TV, everything is there that you need to make your holiday very special. We've always had great customer service from Graham, and although we have never met him, we think of him as a really good friend, always at the end of my e-mail.

The accommodation is always spotless on arrival, always enjoyable to see when you're tired from a long travelling day! I would always recommend this property to others, you'll never be disappointed here.

Fabulous shopping in this area, Port Charlotte has just about everything. Great restaurants, especially the Red Lobster and Olive Garden, both situated together. Locally for breakfast we have found The Egg & I and the Spinnaker Café to be excellent.

Total relaxlation

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well maintained and always clean. We have enjoyed our visits there ( 6 or 7 years for around 6 weeks each time) so much that too many friends want to join us and we have had to restrict the numbers to the original eight - a comfortable number for the Lanai area, the lounge and the four bedrooms. The villa is within easy reach of good shopping centres at Port Charlotte and Sarasota, with plenty of choice of restaurants, theatre and beaches nearby. We are there for Thanksgiving and the start of the Christmas lights and Parades that are a delight.

The owner has always been very friendly and helpful and accommodating regarding the dates that we require. We are airline staff and don't always get on the flights we choose so flexibility is good for us. Relaxing by the pool, shopping trips and good food cooked at the villa are the favourite occupations for the gang of eight with the treats of going to see a show or lunching by the water. Occasionally we take off to visit the theme parks and some of us play golf which is right on the doorstep. The description of the property is accurate.
