Rotonda is one of the small, delightful communities located on the Cape Haze Peninsula in Charlotte County in the south Gulf Coast of Florida.
This is a tranquil area of unspoiled natural beauty and a rich history. Cape Haze Peninsula is approximately 100 miles south of Tampa, between the cities of Sarasota and Punta Gorda. It rests on the waters of the Myakka River and Lemon Bay.
Known for its diversity, the peninsula is not incorporated, and includes the other unique communities of El JoBean, Cape Haze and Englewood. Together these communities make up one of the fastest growing areas of the state, each with its own distinct flavor. Beautiful white sand beaches provide sunbathing, swimming and beachcombing. Hiking, biking, boating, fishing and other watersports are available in Rotonda, and golf and tennis are nearby.
You can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, searching for seashells or do nothing except enjoy the exotic sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.
When you visit Rotonda, you discover a part of Florida that is off the beaten path - unhurried, unspoiled and uncrowded. This region is often called the gem of the Suncoast and when you visit Rotonda on Cape Haze Peninsula, you will discover the reason
There is excellent shopping in Englewood, and you are sure to find everything you need locally. For food, the Winn Dixie supermarket is only minutes away and open until very late at night and 24 hours at certain periods of the year. They have a vast range of food and wine and a deliciously inviting delicatessen. There is a superb fish counter..........and you can have your lobster steamed, ready to eat! They also have a Pharmacy and Bank facilities.
Port Charlotte has a new shopping mall, the Port Charlotte Town Centre. Many a satisfying afternoon can be whiled away in here should your Bank balance allow it! The most renowned of Sarasota's shopping areas is St. Armands Circle, an island of exquisite boutiques, restaurants and galleries. This park-like circle is home to over 100 shops and restaurants, which, it has to be said, are generally pricey (observe Sarasota''s seriously wealthy pull up in their chauffeur driven limos!) however, it is wonderfully atmospheric in the early evening to wander around and can be combined with a trip to Siesta Key's white talcum-powder sand beach.
At nearby Punta Gorda, the unique Fisherman's Village is built over the Peace River and may be reached by water as well as road. From here boat trips to various barrier islands can be arranged or evening sunset cruises.
If, like us, you love dining out, you will have come to the right place. Renowned for fresh local caught seafood, there is a vast choice of places to eat. Every kind of cuisine is catered for from Continental to Japanese. Many restaurants are at the water's edge, portions are huge and, importantly, inexpensive, so that eating out really is a pleasure!
Make sure you take the short boat trip to Palm Island Resort Restaurant one evening. Palm Island is a private community with a lovely beach's which us ordinary mortals are not allowed to use!
When you tire of sitting by our private screened-in pool, there are boundless places of interest to visit including attractions, museums and cultural opportunities. Apart from the beaches, the boat-trips to islands and the wonderful shopping, the region abounds with State Parks where this wonderful sub-tropical Eco-system is being preserved. These parks usually incorporate nature trails, boat tours, canoe rentals, and those on island have, of course, mile upon mile of sandy beaches with great shelling. The wildlife to be enjoyed includes pelicans, egrets, pretty scarlet cardinals, red-cockaded woodpeckers, raccoons, bobcats, alligators, manatees, bald eagles, and the now sadly rare Florida black bears and panthers (though we don't see many of these last two in our back yard!)
For the more active holidaymaker, Englewood is just 80 miles south of Tampa where you can visit Bush Gardens and water parks, or you could go further a field to Orlando - home of the great family fun parks including Disney, Epcot, MGM studios, Universal Studios, Sea World and much more.

Our stay at the Howell's retreat was very nice. The house was great, and the pool was wonderful. The only negative was, we had no idea how far from things we would be! The property is pretty remote, which if you want privacy, this would be ideal for you. We had to meet our daughter and family at Disney for a breakfast on two different days, and this required an early and l-o-n-g drive to Orlando. Not anyone's fault, I just didn't realize the distances involved! We did get in some golf, and the course we played was very nice (the Hills). We liked the beach, and the several options we had for beaches while there. The only other comment I had was to the house guide, which was available to us as a Kindle download. I did find it annoying to have to power on my device every time we needed to look up a number or location. I think a binder with all the info and some maps to local stores, restaurants and beaches would be a great addition to the property, at least for me.
The properties were very clean and the home was nicely appointed with all the amenities that were stated with nothing left but to enjoy the facilities. It was indeed a home away from home. The Rotonda community was very clean as well and felt safe. The area is laid back with everyone very friendly and helpful in locating area attractions. Although the Engelwood community is not commercialized with places like Disney, there were many events to keep you occupied within a short driving distance. I recommend taking a boat or reserving one in advance for anyone vacationing in that area. It would greatly add to your experience. Overall the vacation and area was excellent. Thanks to the Howells for a great stay.
Real good home, I would recommend this to anyone, thanks
The salt water pool was very different and we enjoyed it. The only little thing is the pool area does not get much sun so if you want to sun bathe you have to go to the beach. Other than that it was a lovely villa in a very nice area
Beautiful home - well equipped and appointed. The maps and guides were very helpful and we could not fault the management team for their preparation of the villa and help during the stay.
We had little visitors every day outside the lanai - the storks and egrets, mocking bird and blue jay. The crib cards were a great idea for those of us without the bird knowledge.
Thank you for our lovely stay - it was a relaxing break.
