It is located mid-way between Sarasota and Fort Myers. “Florida as it used to be“ – there are no high-rise buildings – This part of the Gulf coast is the largest “little secret“ with a total of 40 miles of white sandy, never crowded beaches, where pelicans fly overhead and dolphins swim in the sea – manatees, dozens of species of water-birds, sea and land turtles – nature is the key. Many golf courses, tennis courts, 30 miles of picturesque canals, lakes and ponds wind through Rotonda West. Many exotic and beautiful birds call Rotonda West home, as it is a designated bird sanctuary. Boat rentals, water sport activities, numerous shopping malls and little shops, outlet-centers, a great number of restaurants and bars – from the basic ”Tiki huts“ next to the bay, to the many of the wonderful steak / seafood restaurants – the diversity is huge. This all can be reached in only a few minutes from the home. This home is the perfect starting point to a variety of destinations that Florida offers to its visitors:

This, and all other homes listed on this website have a Local Professional Management Company on site and available 7/24. We are finding many overseas vacation homeowners are dropping this essential service thus leaving their guests to fend for themselves by making overseas phone calls to owners in various time zones. Vacationers can rest easy knowing they have a local person available for all their queries or needs when staying in any of our homes.
