THE VILLA on Rotonda West, Florida, is as wheelchair-friendly as we could make it. Wheelchair users should have easy access via the double-opening front doors and gentle slope from the drive to the front door. The threshold has been kept to a minimum, but there is a slight ledge in order to keep out creatures.
Once inside the villa you’ll find the pool shower has good access and a flat floor to allow easy access to the shower itself.
The pool hoist will be in place if you have requested this and instructions on use are found in the blue Guest Information folder.
If there is anything else that you feel would be beneficial either for your own use or for subsequent wheelchair-using guests, do please let us know via email of by leaving a comment on this blog.
- If you are not a wheelchair user and you find the pool hoist is still in place from a previous guest please do not attempt to move it yourself. Call Kurt at Gulf Coast Management and Maintenance and he will be pleased to come and move it for you.
