Val Easton

Having travelled and lived extensively in Spain and Australia, it's taken until now to discover the joy of Rotonda! And what a haven it is, tranquil and so interestingly back to nature and for us "as good as it gets"
With backgrounds in interiors and building we were very quick to appreciate the appeal of this home. Just so lucky to discover it at this stage in our lives. Fit enough to enjoy the fabulous golf courses, beaches, fishing
and boating. Young enough to venture beyond to the exciting places not too far away. Not to mention the greatest shopping!

Do come and find out for yourselves!

Description

THE LOCATION

With weather that is perfect nearly all year round Rotonda West is one of Florida’s best kept secrets on the beautiful Cape Haze peninsular between Sarasota and Naples. The beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast are a short drive for sun-bathing, shelling, hunting for sharks teeth, or watching dolphins at sunset. Boat trips (and boats for hire) for sailing and fishing excursions are available from local marinas or you can take a boat trip along the Intracoastal Waterway where you may see dolphins and even a manatee.

For the sporting enthusiast there are five golf courses and a 24 hour floodlit course all within ten minutes’ drive. Whatever your ideal holiday, this is the perfect spot for simply relaxing and seeing the real Florida. Close by are Englewood, Venice and quaint old Boca Grande/Gasparilla Island. At nearby Port Charlotte there is one of the largest Malls in Florida or, for the really dedicated shopper, there are two enormous designer outlet malls within an hour’s drive. There are several excellent restaurants in the area and Rotonda West also has three supermarkets within 10 minutes.


THE VILLA

Heron's Way is situated on one of the quietest roads in Rotonda West – the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. With very little traffic passing, most of the time the only noise is birds during the day with Cicadas and the odd croak from frogs in the canal at night.

The stunning spacious villa is furnished to a high standard. The south facing heated pool overlooking a freshwater canal is the perfect spot for relaxing. The wide lanai gives an uninterrupted view along the canal for enjoying breakfast or coffee in the morning sun while planning your day. Later in the day the lanai provides shade for an al fresco lunch or a cool spot for enjoying a barbecue as the sun sets.

The fully screened pool area has plenty of room for sun-bathing with a cool spot under the shady lanai if you have had enough sun. With solar and electric heaters for cooler days the pool is kept to a pleasant 86F nearly all year round. It can also be floodlit for evening swims.

There are plenty of books for poolside relaxation but it is only too easy to get distracted by wildlife. Rotonda West has its own Nature Reserve so you are never very far from nature. The garden beyond slopes down to the canal with abundant wild-life - a bob-cat, herons, egrets, wood-stork and even ospreys and a bald eagle have been seen fishing. In the garden Red Cardinals, Humming Birds and Mocking birds are often seen. Rabbits, raccoons and armadillos have also visited our garden.

Our local Management Company is also close by should you need them. We regularly visit to make sure everything is kept to the standard we would hope to find and to guarantee your holiday home is a place where you can simply relax and enjoy.

Perfectly kept and equipped villa in a lovely area

5.0 / 5

Val was a pleasure to deal with from the outset and the description on the website didn’t do the villa justice. Well equipped for every season it’s perfect for long or shorter lets. If you can tear yourself away from the pool and it’s fantastic views of the canal and wildlife the TV has every channel you could want. Lots to see within 15-30 mins drive. Boca Grande is a must see. Thanks again Val and Jim

Wonderful Stay

5.0 / 5

This is a lovely villa, very clean and beautifully furnished. The outlook and the bird life is wonderful and apart from the birdsong very quiet and peaceful. We loved it here and my husband said after a few days “I could live here forever”.

Guest name: Pat Rathbone
Date of visit: April 2019

Owner's response: What a pleasure! Thank you for the visit.


An outstanding villa in an idyllic spot.

5.0 / 5

A beautiful villa with everything we could possibly need for a really relaxing holiday. The house and it's surroundings are so quiet and peaceful. When we could tear ourselves away from relaxing by the pool with a good book or watching the local wildlife everything was only a short drive away. Golf, walking trails, perfect beaches, opportunities for all kinds of water sports, good local restaurants and supermarkets and plenty of opportunity for retail therapy. After a hectic year it was perfect.
We are now counting the weeks until we return.

One of the best homes we have stayed in in Rotonda.

5.0 / 5

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Herons Way. The villa was furnished beautifully and we found it extremely comfortable. Our weather was perfect with temperatures in the 80’s at times with virtually no rain for the whole month - a little different from the weather on our return to the U.K!
We saw the ‘gator on several occasions. The herons, ibis etc. were all fascinating to watch.

Our third visit but the house was still as outsanding as we remembered.

5.0 / 5

We spent Christmas and New Year at Herons Way. Even after three visits this villa still has the wow factor when you walk in. The weather was beautiful reaching 80F+ most days. The pool was beautiful and so inviting after a day on the beach or shopping.
Long Meadow Lane is so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed watching the local wildlife and even saw two Osprey's fighting over a fish one had caught in the canal.

A fabulous home.

We have appreciated the lovely touches that make one feel at home. We ate out every night as the restaurants in this area are so quaint and well priced. It is a wonderful area and we also appreciated the quieter surroundings. We saw an alligator on our second day swimming down the canal.
We will look forward to our return.

A fabulous home.

5.0 / 5

We would like to thank you and your family for letting us stay in your fabulous home. It had everything we needed with a great pool which we all really enjoyed. We have already started recommending it to our friends and will definitely be back ourselves in the future. We loved the coast and particularly the wildlife. Please pass on our thanks to Mary as she is doing a great job keeping the house in tip top condition.
Thanks again and best regards.

A wonderful home

I wanted to say what a truly wonderful home Herons Way is and that we had a wonderful time! Huge thanks for everything. We went to Family Friday to see the Stone Crabs, did a fab kayak tour with Hooked on SUP where we saw a whole family of manatees and came home with some sharks teeth of course! Thank you for all your recommendations.

This villa has the wow factor as soon as you walk in the door.

5.0 / 5

My family have stayed here several times now yet this villa continues to exceed our expectations and is always even better than we remember it! It has the wow factor as soon as you walk in the door - it's immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and the view through to the pool makes me want to jump right in! We ate every meal outside making the most of the peaceful location and lovely views of the canal, the wildlife and some spectacular sunsets. We spent most of our time in the pool (given a choice I don't think my kids would have ever left it!) which was beautifully warm and the perfect place to relax and unwind. When we did drag ourselves away we really enjoyed the great local beaches and sampling the local restaurants. I highly recommend this villa, in fact on the flight home we were already discussing when we would go back!!

Guest name: Ashley-Down family

Our first time in Rotonda. We definitely want to return and hope your villa will be available. The pool is the best in any villa we have stayed in. A ‘grown-up’ pool, just the right size and depth.

An excellent villa

Just to say we have had a lovely stay in your excellent villa – so very quiet all around. This is our eighth stay in Rotonda so we know our way around the area. Best pool ever – right size, shape and depth for easy swimming. Hopefully we will be back in the future.

Would recommend a holiday in this villa

5.0 / 5

Best Christmas away from home. Absolutely glorious weather – high 80’s all week long. Maureen and Cliff’s home is always reliably clean, comfortable and well quipped. Everything you need is here. Early morning walks at the beach, lunch at one of the local restaurants then back to relax by the pool – perfect. We always thoroughly enjoy ourselves at Herons Way and would recommend a holiday here at any time of the year. Hopefully we will be back next year.

Guest name: Mr and Mrs S. Shropshire
Date of visit: December 2015

Owner's response: We are so glad you enjoyed Christmas in our villa. Always a lovely time of year in Florida.


A wonderful time at Heron's Way.

I have to compliment you again on how clean your villa is!!
