About the property

Lakeside Villa in Rotonda West, Florida, USA - Tranquil Location, Yet Close To Many Excellent Beaches, Golf Courses And Shopping

Lakeside House is located on Rotonda and has recently been furnished, so it is a very new home. Loved for its peaceful setting backing onto a lake with no immediate buildings on either side. It's the perfect 'chill' holiday home! Lakeside House has a beautiful extra large 'L' shaped pool with a waterfall and the large deck and cage have been extended to increase the views of the fantastic lake at the back of the house. We have a comprehensive guide in the house with suggestions for some of our favourite restaurants, where to shop, location of some of the best beaches, where to find sports activities and generally how to enjoy our home to the full!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Julian and Beverley,

Thank you for returning our deposit so promptly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and your villa was very nicely presented, one of the best we have stayed in.

We have stayed in various villas on Rotonda in recent years and Lakeside House was the best we have come across. We will certainly have you on the top of our list if we are wanting to stay in the area again.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Lakeside Villa has an incredible view of the lake, wetlands and wildlife, which adds to the relaxation and calming affect of time spent at this wonderful vacation home. The pool deck is expansive and conducive to bird watching, alligator sightings and if you're lucky like we were, the elusive bobcat and her cub walked right along the shore in eye sight! And did I mention "catching" rays and entertaining, Amazing! The amenities are top notch and the property is very well maintained. It's a great home and would be comfortable for families, two to three couples, or a group of friends interested in a boating, golfing or beach vacation as the location is central to all of that and to some of the world's most beautiful white sand beaches. And the turquoise color of the water changes by the minute. Glorious! There's a great selection of restaurants in the area from Italian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Seafood, diners and cafes, and dress code is casual. The town of Englewood is charming and has quaint shops and good restaurants too. We would highly recommend this property and the owners, Bevereley and Julian, were a pleasure to deal with.

Lovely Property with a Great View!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month long stay at Lakeside House. The house itself is large, airy, and well equipped. The master and guest rooms are on opposite sides of the house which offers great privacy if multiple couples are sharing the space. The property shows the love and care of its owners, Beverley and Julian. The location, overlooking a small lake and near the conservation area, afforded many views of wildlife including raccoons, bobcats, many species of birds, and of course, the resident alligator (who is quite large).

We have stayed in Rotonda often during the past 8 years and this is the first rental to which we will be booking a return visit.

Spectacular lakeside villa

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa with great views overlooking a lake. We found the villa very clean and tidy with all the necessary equipment to make for a very enjoyable stay. Rotonda is a very friendly community and overall a good location for exploring the Gulf Coast. The owners were extremely helpful, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend to anyone.

Very appealing and well kept property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeside, being in a quite and peaceful location overlooking the lake at the rear so watching out for the local wildlife was a daily

routine over breakfast ! The house was very comfortable and well kept. The local beach at Englewood was very accessable with a nice board walk and we enjoyed Boca Grande and riding around in a golf cart. Altogether enjoyable and well recommended.

Best villa in Rotonda

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests, having holidayed in Rotonda many times, this is the best villa we've stayed in. Very clean, private, peaceful and overlooking a lake, it ticked every box for us. We loved it.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches are about 15 minutes drive, but with beaches to the west and the south, you will want to try different beaches. They are beautifully clean and some have small fossilised sharks teeth which wash up in the surf - a major change to shell hunting!

Travel:

Tampa International is about 1hr 40mins from the house. It's a easy drive and closer than Orlando which is 2hrs 30mins, or Miami which is just over 3 hrs. Many guests now fly into RSW (Ft Myers) which is just an hour from the house. It means a change for most travellers in the US, but it's a lovely smaller airport and a popular arrival point with owners and guests! A car here is essential.

Distances:

Almost everything is 15 minutes drive time! Port Charlotte, the baseball, the island of Boca Grande and some of the beaches! Food shops are on the 3 Rotonda exits, you have a Winn Dixie on the north exit and Publix at both the east and west exits. The 776 which takes you to the beaches has a 24 hour Walmart foodstore and just beyond that is a Sweetbay which has a larger selection of organic goods.

Further Details:

Our home has a comprehensive in-house guide to help guests to find their way around this wonderful area.

Notes:

  • Outside: We have a landscaped front garden, but we have left the back garden quite natural because of the setting. The pool is a good size, but not a standard shape! It is private and comes with optional electric pool heat. There is a double garage, although it only fits one car because we store the pool cover in there in the summer and the bicycles and bins are also kept in the garage. Utility Room: The utility room has a washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: We supply plenty of both indoor and outdoor towels and 2 sets of linen for each bed. The house is clean when you arrive and cleaned when you leave, but we can arrange cleans during your stay at an additional cost. The pool is also treated weekly. Other: There is a very large room with the kitchen at one end and the dining room at the other. They are separated by a breakfast bar with stools for those who choose this alternative form of seating.
