The screened pool deck looks out onto the water and golf course in the background which creates added privacy. The Lanai is west facing so the sun is on the pool area until late evening. Watch the wildlife around the lake from the lanai with covered and open seating on three sides of the solar heated salt water pool, so much better than the chlorine alternative. It can also be floodlit for evening swims. Take time to also enjoy the Spa too. A patio table, six chairs, sun loungers and parasols are available.

’This is a fabulous house and a wonderful location. At the end of our vacation we did not want to leave, it is so comfortable and finished to a very high standard. The house is ideally situated with an oversized deck and lanai, west facing and overlooking the lake and golf course. This is a house of exceptional quality; the owner really has thought of everything, there is nothing more you will need to ensure you have a wonderful vacation. We can’t wait to make a return visit.”
“The villa was excellent, very clean and tidy and the pool was warm and the area around the pool was spacious. I loved the bikes and went out every day for some exercise. It was very peaceful.”
“The home was absolutely fabulous and met all our needs. Loved the location as it was central to all of the things we wanted to do. We spent many hours in the pool, reading and lounging. We cooked out several nights and enjoyed the Seafood available in the area. On our next visit we will be sure to enjoy the local golf courses".
It is always with some sadness that we leave Rotonda each time we vacation here. Our experience sharing your villa this year has been as enjoyable as the best of the past 15 years plus! It has been a delight to stay in your well appointed and tastefully decorated house. Thank you for letting us use it for the past four weeks. We have all had a very comfortable, relaxing and super holiday! Blighty (UK) will feel somewhat different when we return to low 50 degrees F compared to 80 in the pool here. Thanks you so much, sincerely Ray & Val and Mike & Dot.
"Just a note of thanks and appreciation. I can't tell you how happy I was when I first entered your home and looked around! We had a wonderful vacation and loved staying at your house and felt very blessed to be celebrating the holidays here. It was so very comfortable and had every amenity. We really appreciated all of the extras you provided. I swam every day and rode the bikes on multiple occasions. We had a great time using the shark tooth finder and found several of them at different beaches. We appreciated the restaurant guides and beach guides too. I used them repeatedly and found them very helpful. Really appreciate your attention to details. You really thought of everything!!! Your kindness is truly appreciated. The time here will leave us with precious memories."
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your villa. We found that the villa had everything that we needed during our stay for a perfect holiday (cool box, beach chairs, parasol etc). The pool and the Jacuzzi were wonderful, the best we have had in all of our visits to Florida. The villa was very well presented and was decorated beautifully. During our stay there was a tropical storm, so we were unable to leave the villa – we spent the day playing the various board games, puzzles and cards that were available to us, this was a lovely touch! The area around the villa was very peaceful and the view over the lake was beautiful. The villa is also in a great location and was only a short drive to the many beaches. We hope to book this villa again during our next visit to Florida.

We had the most relaxing time at Sunset Lake. It is by far the best equipped and most beautifully presented holiday home we have ever stayed in. The villa is extremely spacious, and well laid out. We spent lots of time relaxing by the pool, playing board games that the host have supplied, and cooking in the nicely designed kitchen.
The hosts have done a great job of providing lots of information about local places of interest in the villa.
We would highly recommend Captain Jack's Fishing Charter, if you're lucky you might bring home you dinner - which they will fillet for you.
There's plenty of places to go for dinner. For a delicious healthy option we loved Mango Bistro. On more that one evening we drove to the beach at Gasparilla Island and ate at the South Beach Restaurant. And for something fun we enjoyed Flounders restaurant and Tiki Bar.
We look forward to going back to the villa with our parents and our children for family holiday!

We are so looking forward to revisiting Sunset Lake Villa on Rotonda, Florida. This house is well located overlooking a lake and green of Long Marsh Golf Course. Inside is a real home from home, beautifully furnished and so well equipped. I wish that my kitchen at home had so many gadgets and labour saving devices as this one? The owners have catered for so many outdoor interests and hobbies like golfing, cycling and angling. The real joy for us was the lanai. After all the daily activity what could be better than to relax on one of the sumptuous loungers with a long, cool drink and watch the sun set. Magical.
