About The Owner

Presently live in New York's Hudson Valley. Married for 35+ years with 2 adult sons and their families. Here we are enjoying a wonderful evening in Punta Gorda with one of the amazing sunsets from a great new club on top of the city. What a view!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

SW Florida has the ideal lifestyle to unwind and enjoy R&R. The best uncrowded beautiful gulf beaches. Restaurants are wonderful with lots of fresh locally caught seafood. Great fishing and golf. Not as fastpaced as east coast of Florida.

What makes this house unique

Very quite neighborhood. Great place for relaxing. Walk, bike the neighborhood streets with little or no car traffic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Day 3 of 10. The house is great, weather great. Celebrated my birthday at Disney with the family. It was amazing. The boys love the pool, as do Kelly & myself. Your house is beautiful, don't want to think about going home. Good thing I still have 7 days. God bless all who stay here!

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. Owners were very quick to reply to any questions. Home was very comfortable and decorated nicely. Well furnished! (Although we had to place glass items up higher as we have a toddler). We miss it already.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation at our home despite the problem with the spa. We had our pool company come and check all of the equipment and found that the controls had been switched by someone. Everything was fine after they were switched back to their correct position. Please visit us again!

A Very Nice House

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at this house on Caddy Ave. We were there two years ago. The house itself is beautiful but is starting to show a bit of wear and tear which needs to be addressed by the owners. First of all the pool was many times too cold and then way too hot. Pool boy said it needed a new filter and a new temperature gauge and did speak to the owner for us. We did not use the hot tub at all. At first it emptied every night for no reason and then later on the water level stayed. Hopefully we will get a rebate for the hot tub at $40 week X 4 weeks. The carpeting in the bedrooms looks very dirty and stained and the carpet in the lanai is showing wear. Coffee pot needs replacing as the coffee empties out on the counter if not positioned on the edge of the burner. Some of the linens are starting to be stained, looking worn and needing to be thrown out. It would have been nice to have bath sheets for the second and third bedroom. Also when showering in the tub your feet were in 4 inches or more of water when finished. Drains should be unclogged. The lanai furniture is looking a bit worse for wear and the BBQ grills are rusty and need replacing.The house thermostat was difficult to get set up to our liking and the A.C. kept going off in the middle of the day, I had to change settings on a daily basis. It worked fine on our last visit. This house has the potential to be a beautiful rental but does need some TLC right now. Being Canadian this house rental cost us over $5000 Canadian dollars so our expectations are very high. I recommend that cleaning supplies be available so renters can clean properly for long visits. Overall we had a good visit and would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review and would like to address your concerns. We were at the house a couple of weeks after your stay. We had the company that installed all of the pool equipment and the Aqua Switch inside the house over to address the pool problems. Much to our surprise they found nothing wrong at all with the pool equipment and the spa. It was determined that the controls for both had been tampered with. This is the only thing that would have caused the spa to empty and for the heating equipment not function correctly. All of the equipment is working fine. The Aqua Switch was installed inside the house so renters would not touch the pool filter & heater. The air conditioning and heat are controlled by a computer program that uses outdoor reported temperatures to control indoor comfort. This is explained in our owner's manual which is provide to all of our renters and required to read upon arrival. The coffee pot has been replaced. Towels and sheets are replaced on an annual basis as needed. Our house cleaner removes any towels and sheets that have been stained. The carpets are shampooed at least once a year sometimes more. The cleaning products that we left at the beginning of February were still under the kitchen sink when we came back the end of April. The clogged drain was taken care of with the drain cleaner that was in the house. The bbq grill is outside and is subject to the weather. We replace it every other year. In the last year we have replaced our living room furniture and had a new floor installed. All new bed sets had been purchased, a new refrigerator & new cookware added. We had also added all new lounge chairs for the pool area. During our last stay we have replaced the outdoor dining set. The interior & exterior of the home is painted or touched up with every visit we make. We would like to let you know that we are constantly updating our home for ourselves, as well as our guests.

Super great house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for a week recently while visiting friends in the area. This house was perfect for what I needed. The location is in a nice, quiet neighborhood, I always felt safe and it was easy to get a good night's sleep. Especially because the bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. The house was clean and well equipped. The pool and spa were particularly enjoyable. There was a problem with the spa one evening...the owner was immediately responsive and had the problem fixed the next morning. It was really nice to be able to park inside the garage. There is a lot to like about this rental, and I would definitely stay here again.
