The Hidden Gem Of Florida

Rotonda is just waiting for you to discover it!

Rotonda is located on the Cape Haze peninsular on Florida’s Gulf of Mexico coast between the main cities of Sarasota to the north and Naples to the south.  Locally it sits between Englewood and Port Charlotte.

Famous for being selected by Money Magazine as the ‘Best Place to live in the South’ for years due to the consistently excellent weather, availability of leisure and arts pursuits, the economy and the low crime rates.


Rotonda and our Glorious Gulf Villa provide the ideal vacation location with lots of opportunity to enjoy the numerous activities on offer; golfing, walking, cycling, kayaking, beach walking/shell collecting etc

Locally you will be spoilt for choice with superb beaches, excellent local restaurants and championship golf courses on your doorstep as well as miles of intersecting canals/waterways to explore. It’s not hard to see why so people return year after year.  Rotonda has it all!


Rotonda is a Deed Restricted area and is part of a nature conservation area.  As our villa is situated right on the waterfront with its own fishing dock, this makes it a magnet for attracting hundreds of different wildlife.
