At the heart of Rotonda is a 30 acre Community Park with free tennis courts, playground and bike trails through the nature reserve.
Golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with 5 golf courses and 99 holes of golf on Rotonda alone all just 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had one of the best holidays we have ever had at this property. It is big beautiful and offers unsurpassed privacy so that you feel like you are on your own little island when you are in the pool. It sounds odd to say but the landscaping was one of my favourite things. It was just such a peaceful arrangement you could not help feeling relaxed. I highly recommend this property. Well done to the owners who were fabulous at getting me all the needed information and so much more.

Bobcat villa was all we hoped it would be and more. The villa is furnished to a high standard and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It has a great layout with bedrooms, kitchen, toilet and living area all opening on to the lanai. The fact that it had lots of beach equipment including cool box, umbrella and sharks tooth sifter(!) was a real bonus. With empty plots on either side the location is really peaceful and private and just near enough to the beaches, perfect for relaxing after a busy week at Disney. It was very clean and the management company were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
WOW. Let me say that again WOW. Book now--do not hesitate. We had a wonderful stay. The pictures were accurate. Actually I think it was prettier in person. It was very clean and had plenty of bath towels and beach towels (nice big beach towels). We lived in the Port Charlotte area 40 years ago. Me 53/Mom89/2 Sisters 58 and 65/Brother 51)--we were there to reminisce. The neighborhood was lovely and close enough to everything we wanted to do. I only wish we would have had 2 more days to enjoy the house and pool more. The pool was very well kept and we enjoyed it immensely. There was plenty of floats and toys--we used the noodles. The beds were all very comfortable. The kitchen well stocked. Loved having the ice and water in the fridge door. We used the BBQ grill one night--which was awesome. The kitchen table was perfect for playing cards and seats very comfortable. They had a small and large cooler which we used to carry ice water. The house was decorated so beautifully. I would go in each room and just sit and look around. I wanted to take the master bathroom home with me. We also used the washer and dryer-worked great. It was also nice being able to park our car in the garage. My only issue and not much of an issue, was I thought they should have had an extra roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and an extra roll of paper towels for the kitchen. This was really not a big deal because we went to Wal-Mart at least twice in the week we were there-just an FYI. Ann and Mark were so easy to work with in the booking process. They sent a nice information letter with addresses and hours of the grocery stores, Wal-Mart, and a few restaurants around the area. We did enjoy Pings--a Chinese take out restaurant they recommended and it was very good. There were plenty of extras we did not use: bicycles, toys for the beach, beach umbrellas, to name a few. If I were going to come back to this area, I would book this place in a minute. It just felt luxurious!! Thank you Mike and Ann!!
Perfect Villa exactly as described plus more
Just returned with family and children (14 and 11 years) from our lovely two week vacation and missing the villa already. For anyone after a relaxing time with easy access north to Clearwater or south to Naples, the State Parks, Shopping Malls and Restaurants.... then Bobcat is ideal.
Facilities superb, scenery and great location ~ wonderful holiday home
Bobcat Villa - Rotonda West, Florida
Superb villa in a really peaceful location, but easily in reach of plenty of good friendly restaurants, malls and beaches.
Very high quality furniture and fittings, both indoor and poolside, and the Villa was spotless when we arrived - credit to the maintenance company.
Sun was on the pool deck from 8.30AM to 5.30PM (travelled End Sept/start Oct) but with shade when needed.
Pool was lovely - we did take the heating option.
About 2.5 hours drive to Orlando, but that was fine with us - still drove back for a day at Disney and another at Universal - really easy drive, virtually all on highway.
Weather at the time of year averaged 30 C with about 5 minutes rain at about 4PM most days - didn't bother getting out of the pool!
All said, a wonderful 2 weeks - only problem - We didn't want to come home.
I'd recommend Bobcat to anyone.
Everything about the home was exceptional.
Our family of 4 adults and 4 kids had plenty of room in this spacious home. Kids loved pool. Everything was close by. Kids loved the pool. Could not be happier!
Bobcat Villa..."A little piece of heaven"
What can I say...Bobcat Villa was everything and more we could have wanted and hoped for. After a few hectic days in Orlando this was a sanctuary of peace and quiet made all the more enjoyable due to this stunning villa, catering for every need. Kids loved the pool and there were tears every night when it was time to come out! Luxurious and beautifully decorated as the photo gallery shows. We would definately without hesitation recommend this villa for anyone considering Rotonda West. Ann was very helpful, friendly and quick to reply to all of our queries. Thankyou for a wonderful stay at your beautiful villa. We most certainly will be back on our next visit to Rotonda West.
Activity and Interests
Our home is on Rotonda West in the quiet newer Pine Valley area. The deck faces south west and gets lots of sun, it is very private as it has undeveloped lots on both sides. At the back is a small area of greenbelt between the yard and the newest golf course (ninth fairway). There are trees and sawgrass which screen the deck from the golfers but they are not so close as to block out the sun. It is a great place to watch the local wildlife of Gopher Tortoises, Armadillos and sometimes a Bobcat, it is the perfect spot to see many of Rotonda's residents passing through!
At the heart of Rotonda is a 30 acre Community Park with free tennis courts, playground and bike trails through the nature reserve.
Golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice. Rotonda Golf and Country Club offers 100 holes over 5 courses, The Hills, Long Marsh, The Palms, The Links and Pinemoor all with well maintained fairways and greens.

Special offer deals are available including cart hire, as are private lessons. Clubs can be hired by the round and there is a Pro shop and restaurant at the main club house.All just 5 minutes away! Travel just a little further and courses abound making this area a true golfers paradise.
Miles of quiet gulf coast beaches and the barrier islands can be found just a short, easy drive away as can the myriad of waterways, canals, lakes, rivers and harbours which make up this unique area. Perfect for lazing on the sand, boating or enjoying some world class fishing from the beaches, piers and rivers piers. Or book a backwater or sport fishing trip for Marlin, Tarpon and Shark or simply hire a boat and enjoy the water, it’s an excellent way to go dolphin and manatee spotting too.
There is great dining and shopping, local supermarkets and restaurants are only 5 minutes drive away with shopping malls, major food chains and a cinema at Port Charlotte a 15-20 minutes drive. There are a selection of major outlet malls about one and a half hours drive from the villa.
It is an easy one hour drive from the beautiful city of Sarasota, one and a half hours from Tampa or two and a half hours from the Orlando theme parks.
