Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa with all mod cons. The outside space is the highlight off this villa, amazing huge pool and the view of the canal is stunning. Very quiet area but within a short car journey to supermarkets and restaurants.

Wonderful Location!

  • 4 of 5

The property is situated on a corner of the inland waterway system and gives fantastic views of boats passing, fish jumping and even a dolphin one day! It is brilliantly situated for a meal out in Town. The Tiki Bar is great! Well laid out, the property is comfortable and has a great lanai area by the pool, you can sit out at any time of day or late evening. The description of the property is reasonably accurate. Perhaps a little updating to decoration is about due. Electrical appliances are reasonably new and the villa is cleaned to a fair standard. The TV system could do with a set of instructions and a list of channels available (Free movies etc) would be useful. A telephone for local calls would be an advantage, many homes we have stayed in over the years have had a "trust" box next to them to cover costs. The master bedroom and bathroom are really comfortable, there were only two of us, so more than adequate. A few more plates in the cupboards in the kitchen/ dining area would have been nice, I would not have had to use the dishwasher every day! The cutlery went through the dishwasher before I would use it.

During our visit, we saw the pool lady on one occasion, she spent about 5 minutes testing the water, poured in some chemicals and left. I cleaned the pool out myself! Didn't see a First Aid Kit, I may have missed it.

I think we are being more than fair when saying that this is a good property with many things to recommend it to both couples and families and we would certainly bear it in mind should we return to Punta Gorda. I hope the things, however small, will be taken as constructive rather than criticism and would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone. Easy to find, local to everywhere, Linda has a home from home for most!

A small word of warning! Went to Harpoon Harrys at Fishermens Village, really not nice, and Laishleys Crab House, way over-priced, neither particularly clean!!

Great location, would stay again

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Punta Gorda. Despite having a sick 2 yo, we had a great time. The area is family friendly and easy to get around. The home is located on a beautiful cul de sac corner property on PGI. The house is spacious and the lanai and pool area is huge and very welcoming. We spent most of our time out there! It was well equipped with beach towels, pool and sand toys; bicycles/tennis/fishing poles (although we did not use the bicycles/tennis/fishing poles). The house was not well stocked with garbage bags and the laundry detergent was empty. We ended up getting our own detergent and Linda brought over some garbage bags the next day. We requested some fans and she also provided those which was nice. Property was clean and well maintained. Our family would stay here again, thanks for your hospitality.

NOTE: I think adding a training wheel bicycle and/or bicycle trailer for young children would be great and more beach chairs. Providing more towels for the bathrooms would also be nice and a second set of sheets/pillow cases for each bed.

Owner's Response: Julie, Glad to hear you and your family enjoyed the stay. About supplies. The house is well stocked with cleaning products and supplies. You were provided with dish washer detergent, paper towels,T.P., soap,assorted cleaning products , garbage bags and a 1lb bag of starter laundry detergent. If during your stay you need more products than obviously you will need to purchase supplies. ( Renting a house is different than staying at a hotel.) Towels/Sheets: There is a total of 12 body towels and 5 pool towels. ,hand towels and wash clothes.( I will be adding a few more pool towels.) We supply a 2nd set of sheets to guests that stay for 3 weeks or longer. We do not provide a 2nd set of sheets for a 5 night stay. We are adding more beach chairs so there will be a total of 6. Bikes/Training Wheels We provide 4 adult bikes and 2 children's bikes , Also 2 kayaks are kept in the garage for those who want to use them. Unfortunately we do not have enough garage space to add more bikes/training wheels. Sincerely, Linda

Exploring southwest Florida

  • 5 of 5

The 2nd leg of a wonderful trip to Barbados, and surrounding islands on National Geographic's "Sea Cloud" led us to Punta Gorda, and a lovely stay at this rental property.

The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac so it's quiet, and has a great waterfront view. The home is spacious with the master set apart from guest/children's bedrooms. Nice floor plan! The weather hadn't co-operated during our stay for swimming in the large heated pool, but we did try out the paddle in the kayaks on site to view the grand boats along the canals. Do wish the movie channels were in the great room though vs the twin bedroom.

Owner's Response: Dear Paulette, Thank you for staying with us. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you back for your next vacation. (Next time just ask me its very easy to switch the movie channels to the great room.) Sincerely, Linda

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The house was really nice. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful, if we ever stay in Punta Gorda again we will call Linda to stay in one of her homes again.
