Memories made in Port Charlotte!

5 of 5
My family vacationed in Port Charlotte the 1st week of April 2018 and rented this wonderful house based on the great reviews on Home Away. The house was clean and spacious, and completely as advertised! Being a ranch, it was very easy for my father in law to get around as he is not very mobile. We loved the backyard pool, hot tub and patio. Plenty of sun and shade options for all. My teenage daughters spent a ton of time in the pool. We liked the bonus room with a pool table. Quiet neighborhood and community with very little traffic in the subdivision. It is still being developed. My daughter and I went on a couple of 8-mile bike rides during the week with the bicycles available to renters in the garage. They were in fine shape. The sunset on Boca Grande was stunning, definitely worth the 20-minute drive and $6 toll. With our week being spring break and also Easter, Englewood beach was very crowded during the day. We did not arrive at the beach until just before noon and it was impossible to park. We did end up at Stump Pass Beach just to the south of Englewood and only had to wait 10 minutes or so for a parking spot. It was a beautiful beach. Our weather was PERFECT all week, not a hint of rain and 85 degrees every day. We spent so much time in and around the pool that we only made it out to dinner once all week (Farlow’s on the water, great meal, nice patio for dining) as we used the BBQ grill just about every night. If you are a thrill seeker and want to give parasailing a try, I’d definitely recommend using the company Parasail Englewood. My eldest daughter and I had a great experience 500+ feet above Englewood beach, and we had multiple dolphins horsing around our boat. Could not have asked for a better week! The management company was helpful as I initially could not locate directions for heating the hot tub. Once I found them they were easy to understand. Rebecca and Darren were a joy to deal with throughout the whole process. We look forward to returning to Port Charlotte in the near future!

Perfect!

5 of 5
Fantastic, everything as described and really nice place to stay. We really liked the Pumpkin and ghosts and Witch on the tree at the front of the house-really made you know this was going to be a holiday to remember and we hadn't even opened the front door! Villa was exceptional and had everything you could wish for, so well cared for and well equipped. Pool was lovely and clean and the BBQ was really good and easy to use and keep clean. Area was very beautiful and the neighbourhood was peaceful and so friendly. You really felt part of the community and not a tourist. Villa location is ideal for day trips and the beaches and wild life areas are within easy reach. Supermarkets really easy to find and the journey from the airport was really easy to do. The owner, Alan, is great to communicate with and sent us a really useful email with directions etc before we left the UK. The option to use bicycles and golf clubs was a nice touch (although we didn't have enough time to use them in the end). The wild life that visited the garden was spectacular with exotic birds and a Bobcat too! A nice touch too was the book the owners have left showing the birds you might see and notes on the one's they had seen actually visit the garden. Another godsend is the policy of encouraging visitors to leave unused food in the fridge rather than throw it away. We arrived very late due to flight delays and it was great to find some milk in the fridge and some tea bags, sometimes only a cuppa will do! We left some items for the next occupants and hope they enjoy them! We made a trip out to Englewood on Saturday to see a local Hot Rod and Classic Car show and for a petrol head like me it was absolute heaven! The Muscle Car City car museum at Punta Gorda is also worth a visit if you like American Cars! Don't worry, the area has plenty to see and do if you're not into car culture. This was a really relaxing holiday and we can't wait to come back. We have used "Owners Direct" before and really recommend them for a stress free vacation. "Perfect" is often over used but in this case it really was PERFECT. Thank you!
