In this unique planned community near Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda on the state's southwest coast, Rotonda vacation rentals are the perfect accommodation option. Master-planned in a wheel shape, the community is encircled by a 30-mile freshwater canal system that flows into each of the pie-shaped wedges that form the neighborhoods.
Three bridges connect the development to the nearby mainland, and the southern border is framed by protected wetlands brimming with wildlife such as bobcats, raccoons, and great blue herons.
Epitomizing the Florida good life, Rotonda vacation home rentals are dominated by beautifully landscaped stucco homes and villas with amenities such as heated swimming pools; screened outdoor entertainment/grill areas; media rooms with computers, televisions, and DVD players; and fully equipped kitchens.
A distinct money-saving advantage of Rotonda, FL rentals is the appliance-loaded kitchen, which allows you to prepare sumptuous snacks for beach picnics and even gourmet meals for your family and fellow guests in a large dining area. How about grilled red snapper, au gratin potatoes, and asparagus for your fellow travelers?
The city is situated within easy reach of Gulf of Mexico Beaches and dynamic cities like Naples, 40 minutes southward, and Tampa, 90 minutes northward. Other day trip possibilities include Sarasota, Fort Myers, and the Orlando theme parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and Sea World, which are about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the area.
Rest assured, you don't have to travel far to find an exceptional golf experience.
