New Gulf Coast Villa

Facilities

Our villa which was completed in August 2006 is situated on a freshwater canal which is part of the Rotonda River system. The rear of the villa is south facing which means that the pool area has the sun all day. This is particularly useful during the winter months when the days tend to be shorter. The rear of the villa is private which is ideal for sunbathers – no strolling golfers passing by and looking in!

There are two large living areas in this villa and one of them can be closed off for privacy. There is also a formal dining area as well as a casual dining nook making this villa larger than most and providing plenty of living space for your comfort.

The villa has a living space under air conditioning of 2400 sq ft. Each room with a ceiling fan has wall mounted fan speed controls and dimmer switches for ceiling lights for ease of use. For your safety each room is fitted with a smoke detector and the villa is also remotely monitored 24/7 for fire.

All linens are provided with spare sets of bed linen for each room. Beach towels are also provided as well as cool boxes, beach chairs and two bicycles if you are feeling energetic and wish to cycle to the nearby park or tennis courts.
