New Gulf Coast Villa

Attractions

Our villa is situated in Rotonda which is located on the Cape Haze peninsular south of Venice and Port Charlotte, in an area that is one of Florida’s best kept secrets. It is very tranquil and certainly a place for relaxation being built around lakes, waterways and magnificent golf courses. The villa is also conveniently located for beaches, restaurants, supermarkets, shopping malls/outlets and various other forms of entertainment.

Rotonda is a wildlife sanctuary and most visitors are lucky enough to spot beautifully coloured birds and butterflies as well as many other exotic species. Visitors to the area have seen cranes, herons, turtles, egrets, racoons and armadillos. You may even see an alligator or two sunning themselves on the banks of the waterways. Miles of sandy beaches with a variety of water- sports from deep sea fishing (tarpon) to scuba diving are all within a 10 to 15 minutes drive.

If not playing golf or lounging by the pool, then there are numerous places to visit nearby including the fashionable districts of Venice, Sarasota, Siesta Key and Longboat Key to the north and Fort Myers, Naples, Sanibel and Captiva islands to the south. These resorts face the Gulf of Mexico and all have beautiful white sandy beaches where you can swim, sunbathe, snorkel, stroll, collect shells, fish or generally relax and the majority of these beaches have on site amenities i.e. changing rooms, shower & bathroom facilities, food and beverages.

Our villa is well placed for visiting the theme parks (without having to be on top of them) including: Disney World, Sea World, Epcot, MGM Studios and Universal Studios in Orlando (within a 2 ˝ hours drive north) and Busch Gardens, Cypress Gardens, St. Petersburg Beach (via the Sunshine Skyway), Water Theme Parks, Shell Factory, and Jungle Cruise all within 1.5 hours drive.
