Description of the Rotonda West vacation home rental
Rotonda is one of the small, delightful communities located on the Cape Haze Peninsula in Charlotte County in the south Gulf Coast of Florida. This is a tranquil area of unspoiled natural beauty and a rich history. Cape Haze Peninsula is approximately 100 miles south of Tampa, between the cities of Sarasota and Punta Gorda. It rests on the waters of the Myakka River and Lemon Bay. Known for its diversity, it includes the other unique communities of El JoBean, Cape Haze and Englewood. Together these communities make up one of the fastest growing areas of the state, each with its own distinct flavour. Beautiful white sand beaches provide sunbathing, swimming and beachcombing. Golfing, tennis, hiking, biking, boating, fishing and other watersports are available in the area. You can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, searching for seashells or do nothing except enjoy the exotic sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. When you visit Rotonda, you discover a part of Florida that is off the beaten path - unhurried, unspoiled and uncrowded. This region is often called “the gem of the Suncoast”.
Rotonda is a residentially developed wildlife sanctuary of approximately 20,000 acres. The residential developments, including Rotonda West, wind through golf courses and the freshwater canals dredged to form the land.
Rotonda West is just a short 15 minutes drive from the beach side town of Englewood on the Gulf Coast of Florida, often referred to as "Florida's Best Kept Secret". Ideally situated for those who wish to explore the tranquil and spectacular west coast beaches. Play golf on some of the finest golf courses in Florida or enjoy the excitement of Miami and the famous Orlando parks within driving distance.
Visitors to Rotonda can easily tour the Southwest Florida cities of Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Venice, Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota by car. Getting to points south requires driving north, east and then south to circumvent Charlotte Harbor. There you'll find Sanibel and Captiva, Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach.
Rotonda West is a peaceful, planned community situated near the beautiful Gulf of Mexico in southwest Florida. It is located mid-way between Sarasota and Fort Myers. The community contains 8,000 home sites with over 5,000 homes completed. Residents are predominantly full-time homeowners and their families, as well as snow birds who winter in the community and holidaymakers from all over the world. This is truly an international community.
There are six golf courses operated by Rotonda Golf and Country Club. Thirty miles of picturesque canals, lakes and ponds wind through the community and offer fishing and boating opportunities for its residents. Many exotic and beautiful birds call Rotonda West home, as it is a designated Bird Sanctuary. Nearby recreation facilities, beaches, theaters, sporting events, and fine restaurants are available for all. Beach activities: sun bathing, boating and fishing; hunting for shells and sharks teeth; checking out turtle nests; bird and sunset watching and an occasional dolphin and manatee, if you are lucky.
Port Charlotte is perfect for a shopping expedition with one of the largest malls in South West Florida and just 20 minutes to reach by car. Ellenton and Sarasota both have large shopping outlet centers no more than 50 minutes away to shop for bargains galore.
Boca Grande with its white sands and turquoise waters is a must to visit on the Cape Haze peninsular.
There are several waverunner and boat rental facilities within a few miles from the house. Biking and hiking, or spend some time at Stump Pass State Park - a wildlife sanctuary just down from the beach. There are lots of golfing oportunities nearby. Sarasota is within a short driving distance for shopping.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
"Very nice and well-equipped villa with private pool in a quiet neighbourhood!" A perfect place to stay if you want a quiet and relaxing vacation. Close to several beautiful beaches. We arrived at a spotless clean and well maintained villa and had a wonderful time! The villa is spacious and very well equipped with a nice pool area in a safe neighbourhood. I liked the privacy we had, something you will not get at a beachfront location. Helga Stromme.
