About the property

3 Bed, 3 bath rental property 10 minutes from beautiful gulf coast beach

Built in December 2006, this property is situated in a wildlife preserve which contains no less than 6 different golf courses. The private pool (electrical and solar heated) with cage, backs on to the first fairway of the Pinehurst West championship golf course. Membership of the Rotonda golf and country club is included in the rental price so you can have unlimited free golf for 2 people during your stay. You only have to pay the cart fee on 4 different courses - all within a 10 minute drive! Rotonda West is a peaceful wildlife sanctuary, surrounded by canals - some with Gulf access. The fabulous Gulf Coast shore and beaches are within a 15 - 20 minute drive. Tampa (Busch Gardens and many other attractions) is a 1.5 hour drive and Orlando about 2.5 hours. This is the ideal location for a golfing holiday or a relaxing week after the stresses of Disney. Everything you could possibly want for a self catering holiday is included and the furnishings are to a very high standard.

Amazing home from home

  • 5 of 5

The photo's don't do this property justice. From the first foot fall into the home, your heart skips a beat at the sheer amazing homely atmosphere. Everything you could possibly want to make this stay a home from home. Ideal for leisure and golf. Beaches and woodland walks. Try any of the local parks for a nature trail or a stroll across the beach. Wonderfully inventive restaurants or dine in the poolside. Golf is included on any of the 5 courses, all you pay for is the cart. Or if you want the exercise, why not walk and save some cash. Great value.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this great review! We have always tried to make the house feel like a home - we spend 8 weeks a year there so I know what you mean about the "skipped beat". Thanks once again for the kind words

Excellent, well appointed villa!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your fabulous villa!

The villa is beautifully decorated, with comfortable furniture & beds & plenty of kitchen equipment.

We had a relaxing week here, after our 2 hectic weeks 'doing the parks' in Orlando. The pool was perfect & the free golf meant the men were spoilt for choice of which of the 4 courses they would play. We also visited several of the local beaches, but usually returned to the pool in the afternoon.

We made good use of the bbq & although the gas ran out the first time we used it, Robert quickly delivered a new bottle.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home & we hope to be able to visit again ....... for longer next time so that we explore the area more fully.

An excellent holiday house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I - 5 adults - arrived home from 16 days holiday in Florida yesterday, where we spent 9 days in this very good house. It was easy to find, very good cleaned all over, well furnished and a very fine pool.

We would gladly recommend it to our friends.

Best golf courses: The Palms and The Hills

Also go to the harbour and buy a trip for some hours with Islands Adventures

The price is right - best bargain around

  • 5 of 5

This rental is very well kept, beautiful and a great location. My husband, myself and two adult sons enjoyed the free golf, the swimming pool, the THREE bathrooms and a beautiful view on the golf course. We had an opportunity to golf at three of the golf courses and were very pleased with the variety of choices available. Attention to detail is excellent - from places to visit to safety and first aid, no stone left unturned. The owners were extremely accommodating as well as the Place in the Sun (company that maintains the rental property). We have already recommended this rental to several of our friends in Ohio. We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law and had plenty of room to entertain them and our two grandchildren. We had a couple of cookouts and swimming with the entire clan and felt right at home.
