Stylish Gulf Coast Rotonda villa - PRIME waterfront location. Affordable Luxury. Be prepared to be impressed!


Here are just some of the reasons why you should stay at our Glorious Gulf Villa:-

Prime waterfront location providing amazing views perfect for wildlife watching.
Located in the highly desirable Pine Valley district of Boundary Blvd, where the properties are immaculately kept, the canals are the widest and there's very little through traffic.
Rotonda is the perfect all-year-round destination with something for everyone of all ages.

We believe our villa has it all...amazing waterfront location, abundance of wildlife to observe, nearby championship golf courses, beaches, restaurants & shops to keep everyone happy.

Thinking of Orlando as well and can't decide which location - why not do a 2 centre? Our villa makes the perfect place for unwind after a hectic week of hitting the theme Parks.

Our villa style is contemporary & modern, professionally interior designed for ultimate comfort.

We believe our villa offers exceptional value for money. By choosing to stay with us you are booking the best possible accommodation at the best possible price.

Our villa is family run and it's really important to us that we offer all our Guests a great experience from start to finish. We lovingly built our villa from scratch so we know every detail of it and we like to personally oversee all aspects of it to ensure consistent quality.
That's why our previous Guests are happy to highly recommend us to their friends and family and we have many repeat Guests who love to return year-after-year.

We appreciate it can be very time consuming and sometimes a little stressful trying to decide on the right villa to meet your needs so let us share with you our most recent Guests experiences:-

"Today is our last day at this beautiful and comfortable home and we are sitting here by the pool reminiscing about our wonderful 4 week stay. This is definitely one of the best vacation homes we have ever stayed at, so welcoming, tastefully decorated, very clean, very nice pool and located in a quiet, safe and friendly neighborhood. It is equipped with so many things, even more than one would expect at a rental home. The canal in the back of the house adds such a great touch with the occasional jumping fish and the birds. Our stay has been amazing, not only the relaxation and the enjoyment of this home and great pool, but the adventures out and about because this home is located very close to bike and walk paths, beaches, golf courses, great restaurants, parks, and more. We look forward to being able to come back. The owners are a delight to work with and made our stay a fantastic experience."

Victoria Brodie
Hi, we are the Brodie Family from Buckinghamshire - England and the owners of GLORIOUS GULF VILLA.

After a magical family holiday in Florida, we fell in love with the Gulf Coast area and we started to toy with the idea of having our very own holiday home. After visiting Rotonda West and being amazed with all the local wildlife and amenities we decided this would be the perfect place for us to build. We were lucky enough to be able to secure the perfect plot of land right on the waterfront and we worked with a great team of builders to turn our dreams into reality...a year later GLORIOUS GULF VILLA was ready for business!

Since welcoming our first Guests over 10 years ago, we have consistently provided a personal, professional and friendly service to everyone who has booked with us. We pride ourselves on offering great service. We know only too well how stressful finding the right accommodation can be so we make sure we keep in regular contact with you all the way through to ensure that everything runs smoothly for you.
Being 4,000 miles away we know the importance of having a local Management Team who deal with all the major issues on behalf but we also regularly visit our home to ensure the high standards are fully maintained.

We hope to welcome you to our GLORIOUS GULF VILLA one day!

We had 2 wonderful stays this year. Any communication with Victoria (Owner) was responded to quickly. We spent a lot of time in the pool and lanai areas with nice views of the canal. Everything was good indoors and no issues with appliances etc. Went for walks almost every day and the people we encountered were friendly. The area is very quiet. Many good restaurants not too far away. Enjoyed things so much we’ve already booked to come back!
* * * * * *
From the moment I contacted the owner I was very impressed by the professional and efficient manner in which I was treated. Before we left on our trip we were provided with extensive information that left us with no questions unanswered. The home and pool area was very clean and very well equipped, A great location for golfers, walkers and bike riders or those who just want to put up their feet and relax beside the pool. Thanks to the Brodie Family for sharing your home with us.
* * * * * *
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely villa. We enjoyed our week so much and didn’t want to leave, there was nothing that could have made our holiday better than it was. Everything was absolutely spotless and maintained so well. We had some great meals especially at Prime Time and spent most mornings on the beautiful Boca beach. We really would love to come back to your Glorious Gulf Villa next year for longer and are already looking at dates. We will definitely recommend your house to family and friends who appreciate luxury accommodation in the perfect peaceful location.
* * * * * *
The home is completely relaxing and beautiful. Located in a quiet area of Rotonda. We golfed and viewed the area with a short visit from our daughter and family. Best Dolphin trip was on a boat from Englewood Beach. Home has everything you need and more. Lots of information for things to do. Read previous guests comments to see other things to do and see. Victoria (the Owner) is great to work with and very helpful. Enjoyed our trip very much would highly recommend this home.

"What a beautiful, quiet and relaxing home you have...just what the Doctor ordered! A great place to sit back by the pool and enjoy the wildlife and most of all sunshine. We enjoyed all the places you recommended to shop and visit and of course, golf. Your villa information binder and all the notes around the house made things very easy upon our arrival. We would definitely recommend & would love to stay again."
* * * * * *
"When we first arrived, we were definitely "Wowed! by your beautiful villa. The tasteful décor and luxury feel made it some welcoming and homely. It is extremely peaceful here; especially a week at the busy parks. To watch the wildlife is really something special. Everything feels so clean and comfortable - lovely comfy beds too! Its so nice to go to a holiday home that has so much attention to detail and everything such good quality. A week was definitely not enough - we would love to return one day."
* * * * * *
"We would just like to say we all had a lovely time in your villa. It was like home-from-home. The children lived in the pool. The beds were so comfy and the peace and quiet bliss. Thank you for such a trouble-free booking from start to finish. We really do appreciate it and we would definitely book again."
* * * * * *
"Many thanks for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and the wildlife was an added bonus. The villa itself was one of the best we have stayed in over 25 years worth of holidaying in villas across America & Europe. We are quite picky about where we stay and rarely go back to the same villa twice. However, we would have no hesitation in returning to your villa if we were to travel South again. I have already been recommending your villa to my friends, family and work colleagues."
* * * * * *
"Just wanted to say that the villa is brilliant. We all loved it so much. Easily the nicest villa we have stayed in. Every little thought has gone in to making your home very special and comfortable."
* * * * * *
"A great stay had by all. Your villa is first class and this area of Florida is superb. We did a couple of days in Orlando and couldn't wait to get back!"
* * * * * *
"We had a fantastic time! Your villa is absolutely lovely and exceeded our expectations. We would be more than happy to provide feedback or a reference for you as we could not have asked for anything more. The weather was perfect, beaches idyllic, food mouth-watering, plenty of activities but lots of opportunities to relax. You and your family have obviously put a lot of thought into creating such a lovely home - I think you have thought of everything. We have visited Florida many times & your villa is definitely at the top of our list. We have been thoroughly spoiled and could not have had a more perfect holiday".
* * * * * *
"Thank you for our Christmas and New Year stay in your fabulous home. We cannot describe our delight when we arrived at your house! Your villa is absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t agree more with the other people who commented that it was amazing to find somewhere that was even better in the flesh than on the web! The area was fantastic and we fell in love with Bocca Grande. You will definitely be hearing from us again!"
* * * * * *
"What can we say??!!! Villa is absolutely stunning. Location, location, location!! Well worth the drive from Orlando. Birds, raccoons, gators and fish all watched every day from the fishing dock and the pool. Shopping at Ellenton Mall is equal to the shopping at Orlando. Port Charlotte is great, the beaches at Englewood and Boca Grande (especially) all stunning and equal to any Caribbean beaches we’ve been to. Stunning, all-in-all a fantastic holiday and can see us coming back to visit in the future."
* * * * * *
"Firstly, can we just thank you for sharing this lovely home. I can honestly say it is the BEST holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. It has been a real treat. I have already recommended you to all our family and friends. Thanks once again, and we wish you luck for the future."

It was our second visit to the Villa and it felt like visiting an old friend. We just picked up from where we left off. Loads of interesting things to do in the surrounding area also good shopping and eating out in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. It lived up to the fond memories of our first visit.
