About the Owner
About Shaun Wakelen
We are an English couple living in the UK who fell in love with Florida back in 2002. After renting properties for our annual vacations, we eventually bought our own home here in Rotonda. We just love the area, the people and all that the Gulf Coast has to offer. What better place to relax and get away from it all..

Why Shaun Wakelen chose Rotonda West
After renting places in Spring Hill and Bradenton, we eventually had a vacation in Rotonda and fell in love with the place.
Easy access to beaches and shops, and the various activities the area has to offer. Our quiet and peaceful neighborhood is an ideal place to relax, but still within easy reach of the tourist attractions of the Everglades and the Tampa/Orlando theme parks.
What makes this villa unique
Within easy reach of beaches and shops, and a fully equipped holiday home.
