Highly recommended spa retreat and adventure for 2-3 couples or a large family
Jan 2014
The villa was immaculate, luxurious and well-appointed. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. The layout was perfect for our family group of 2 couples and 2 young adults, with multiple separate areas for different activities. The kitchen was well-equipped and easy to use. The wifi and multiple TVs/DVDs kept us well-connected and entertained. The spacious lanai with pool, hot tub, dining table and lounge chairs easily accommodated our extended family of 13 for meals and swimming. We loved using the bikes for daily expeditions to the nearby nature trails, where we were delighted to discover interesting plants as well as gators, snapping turtles, a gopher tortoise, frogs, toads, snakes and lizards, as well as many egrets, herons, hawks, and other unusual birds. Highlights of our 10-day stay were daytrips to Myakka State Park, Gasparilla Island, Corkscrew Swamp and a pontoon boat rental that took us through Lemon Bay to a lovely beach on Manasota Key for the day. British owners were gracious and easy to communicate with.

"So relaxing we didn't want to leave......"
Dec 2012
The owners of the villa couldn't do enough for us and even changed a shower head to suit our disabled daughter.The villa was spotless and had everything you could need in the kitchen...we even cooked a Thanksgiving meal! The pool and jacuzzi was lovely and again the outside area was spotless and had very comfortable sunloungers and outside dining set..beach towels were supplied and there was plenty of extra bedding and towels. We made use of the bicycles and had a relaxing ride around the Rotonda circle and saw loads of local wildlife including an armadillo. The location was excellent for exploring Floridas state parks and fantastic beaches..Boca Grande being a 15 min drive. We really had a wonderful holiday and would definitely recommend this villa to all ages..the pool being super safe for young children as there is a safety fence around it

About Villa Elysian

Just inland from the Gulf Coast, on the Cape Haze peninsula, the Rotonda West deeded-estate is in the lovely county of Port Charlotte, set in a large circular area featuring water ways, wooded areas and its own four golf courses. The Villa Elysian overlooks the Rotonda water way enjoying beautiful views and stunning sunsets, not to mention its exotic wildlife – including the occasional alligator.

A short drive away you’ll find the superb Gulf Coast with uncrowded white beaches, where pelicans dive into the water, dolphins can be seen and exotic shells collected.

Villa Elysian is fully equipped with everything that families or groups of friends require for a memorable holiday. There are sun shades, beach chairs, a cool box and plenty of beach towels provided for days at the beach.

For the cycling enthusiast there are 4 bikes (2 gents 2 ladies/child) to explore the local area. (Additional bikes can be hired if required.) Within minutes of the villa you’ll find yourself in Florida National Parkland -a lovely, tranquil, unspoiled area with a host of wildlife. There is even a bird watching kit at the villa with a guide to local birds and a wall map to plan local outings.

All the amenities and attractions of the area are all close to hand and you’ll find shops, banks, DVD rentals, take-aways, bars and restaurants all within easy reach. To look after day to day needs, shopping ranges from the nearby Win Dixie, Publix and Wal-Mart supermarkets on McCall Road, route 776 just 10 minutes away, to the large shopping malls of Port Charlotte a 20 min drive away with all the stores and shops that could possibly be desired. All these outlets stock anything you could need.

When you’re not trying out the local restaurants, fire up the gas BBQ and enjoy outdoor eating by the pool whilst watching glorious Florida sunsets . . . with a suitable drink in hand of course!
