Review for: 3 bedroomed Luxury Lakeside villa near Gulf Coast beaches
"It was an absolute delight to discover this villa. The spacious and intelligent layout, comfortable and elegant finish with so many thoughtful extras made our stay extra special. The pool overlooking the lake was the main highlight for us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and return. The Rotonda is a quiet residential area and the villa is beautifully set in a very attractive part of it. The coast here is superb, every beach as perfectly lovely and peaceful as the last... but that pool, Jacuzzi and hot tub were hard to beat! It is well placed for several attractions in the area... we even drove across to Miami, but stayed overnight to make the most of the visit. We especially enjoyed: Sanibel - the Thriller and the Edison Ford estate, Sarasota - the Mote aquarium and Ringling museum, Englewood with its surrounding beaches and deep sea fishing. But there were so many things on our to-do list that we missed because the villa itself was so enjoyable! Loved every aspect of it! "
If you love visiting the beach you are in the right place as the coastline comprises a series of keys or islands. In effect, giant sandbars, which have matured into a chain of islands running along the entire length of the coast. High- rise hotels are few in number and instead there is a mixture of small motels, small apartments and private residences set in lush vegetation With its clapper board houses, pristine white beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and its old world charm it really is like stepping back in time. Take a sunset boat ride with Grande Tours and spot the dolphins.
There is excellent shopping in Englewood, and you are sure to find everything you need locally. For food, the Publix supermarket is only minutes away and open until very late at night and 24 hours at certain periods of the year. They have a vast range of food and wine and a deliciously inviting delicatessen. The Winn Dixie store is also nearby and they have a superb fish counter..........and you can have your lobster steamed, ready to eat! They also have a Pharmacy and Bank facilities.
Port Charlotte has a new shopping mall, the Port Charlotte Town Centre. Many a satisfying afternoon can be whiled away in here should your Bank balance allow it! The most renowned of Sarasota’s shopping areas is St. Armands Circle, an island of exquisite boutiques, restaurants and galleries. This park-like circle is home to over 100 shops and restaurants, which, it has to be said, are generally pricey (observe Sarasota’s seriously wealthy pull up in their chauffeur driven limos!) however, it is wonderfully atmospheric in the early evening to wander around and can be combined with a trip to Siesta Key’s white talcum-powder sand beach
If, like us, you love dining out, you will have come to the right place. Renowned for fresh local caught seafood, there is a vast choice of places to eat. Every kind of cuisine is catered for from Continental to Japanese. Many restaurants are at the water’s edge, portions are huge and, importantly, inexpensive, so that eating out really is a pleasure! Make sure you take the short boat trip to Palm Island Resort Restaurant one evening. Palm Island is a private community with a lovely beach – which us ordinary mortals are not allowed to use!
For golfers we are right next to the Long Marsh Golf Club.
There are boundless places of interest to visit nearby including attractions, museums and cultural opportunities. Apart from the beaches, the boat-trips to islands and the wonderful shopping, the region abounds with State Parks where this wonderful sub-tropical Eco-system is being preserved. These parks usually incorporate nature trails, boat tours, canoe rentals, and those on island have, of course, mile upon mile of sandy beaches with great shelling. The wildlife to be enjoyed includes pelicans, egrets, pretty scarlet cardinals, red-cockaded woodpeckers, raccoons, bobcats, alligators, manatees, bald eagles, and the now sadly rare Florida black bears and panthers (though we don’t see many of these last two in our back yard!).
We know you will enjoy your stay in our villa and the fall in love with the surrounding area. If you want a truly special holiday contact us now.
Our villa has stunning views over a private lake and pine trees. A beautiful haven for relaxation. It is close to a beautifully maintained golf course. White sand beaches and fantastic restaurants are near to hand.
