SERENITY VILLA (LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION)
Serenity Villa, as the name suggests is the ideal destination for a peaceful, luxury waterfront getaway. Situated in a quite cul-de-sac of executive waterfront homes in this fabulous deed restricted area, just 5 min from Fisherman's Village and Charlotte harbour by boat, or by car, this spacious 3 bed, 2 bath villa has 95 feet of waterfront with its own private boat dock. The property is situated on a large open basin with a view that is unmatched in the whole of Punta Gorda Isles! You can fish off the dock for local fish such as Snook, Redfish and Snapper, or just sunbath and watch the boats and the world go by. Dolphins and Manatee are often seen playing right beside the dock. The most amazing and breathtaking sunsets will round off the perfect day.
This is no average villa, with two guest rooms situated on the ground floor at the western side of the villa, allowing for total privacy in the master bedroom suite on the first floor, at the eastern side.

Sports and Recreation : Punta Gorda’s climate and its marvellous marinas, waterways and nearby beaches provide every opportunity to enjoy the relaxed outdoor Gulf lifestyle. Charlotte Harbour, with its easy access to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico, offers world-class sailing, boating, and fishing while white sand beaches in nearby Englewood attract swimmers and sunbathers.

The nine-hole public Chip Shot Par 3 course, is easy to walk and its narrow fairways and undulating greens provide great short game practice. Going upmarket, the three executive 9-hole courses at the Burnt Store Marina and Country Club are played in three 18-hole combinations and offer challenging golf in beautifully scenic conditions with all the amenities of an upscale resort. Most courses have been designed to suit all levels of golfing ability and are on terrain that is easy to walk.
Special Attractions/Events: Fishermen’s Village, on Punta Gorda’s waterfront, has become known as SW Florida’s most interesting and exciting vacation complex. As well as a huge marina with cruise boats and fishing boats, there are all kinds of exclusive shops and boutiques, superb restaurants, and terrific nightlife, with visiting acts that change daily. The facility also offers daily organized activities and events for visitors, a heated swimming pool and speed boats, jet skis and bicycles available for rental.
On river-boat tours from Punta Gorda visitors experience the magic of cruising silently through pristine mangrove and cypress swamps, with alligators, manatees, eagles, ospreys, and other beautiful and exotic wildlife close at hand. For the more adventurous swamp buggy expeditions offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see panthers, Florida cracker cattle, white tailed deer, rare swamp birds, and dozens of wild alligators close at hand.
My family had a wonderful stay at the Villa. Location was ideal, the house was well equipped, beautifully furnished, very comfortable, both indoor, poolside, or at the dock. Property was well maintained. The Owners were very accommodating. Called before my arrival to see if I had any questions about access to the Villa. The bikes and fishing gear were greatly appreciated. I look forward to a return visit !
We spent 2 wonderful weeks at this lovely villa. There is nothing we can fault. Communication with the owner was excellent. John provided us with all the information we would need prior to arrival. The villa was clean and well equipped. We found it to be in an excellent location. There are some beautiful beaches close by. I would definitely recommend this villa.
Serenity Villa is a lovely home located on a main canal of Punta Gorda Isles. The views and the activity on the canal from the pool is wonderful and relaxing. The home has a nice modern decor. The master bedroom upstairs is very large with a great bathroom and wonderful views. We loved our stay. My only wish is that the pool was heated a bit warmer and the Internet was a little faster; however it was still a pleasure to stay and would come back again.
Just returned from a four week stay at this fantastic home. Apart from the location being perfect - the view across the water is beautiful - the house is probably the best we've stayed in. John and Caroline have made sure there is everything you need (thank you so much for a decent hairdryer!) but the layout of the house itself is lovely, its so light and airy. Comfy sofas, comfy beds and a wonderful pool make this house so inviting. We loved Punta Gorda and tried to visit as many restaurants as possible, particularly liked River City Grill but found Captains Table was not as good as previous years. Location is brilliant, so peaceful but close to everything you could need. Our favourite time was fishing between 7pm and 8.30 pm (we caught snapper, catfish, ladyfish, flounder, stingray off the dock using shrimp, hotdogs and spam!) watching the sun go down and listening to the mocking bird serenading us. We also caught two bonnet shark at Alligator Bay. All in all a fantastic holiday and I would certainly recommend this lovely home. Thank you John and Caroline for letting us rent your beautiful villa.
Ab Fab!!! Best Villa Ever!!!
We have been to Florida many times and this is by far the best Villa we have stay in.
After a busy week in Orlando with my husband and two children we arrived at Serenity and what a surprise we got. The pictures do not do this piece of heaven justice.
John and Caroline called us on arrival to make sure all was satisfactory,(a nice touch we felt).
and kept in touch to make sure all was ok during our 2 week stay, but not intrusively.
The views of the waterway are stunning and the villa itself is spotlessly clean throughout.
There is everything catered for that you could wish to have in a holiday villa.
My husband and the kids fished off the dock almost every day and caught loads of fish, while in the evening we sat by the pool and watched the sunset, with a few cocktails, Fab!!!
We had bike rides and ate in some of the best restaurants that Punta Gorda has to offer.
John suggested The River City Grill as it was their favourite and it did not disappoint, also after telling the bartender where we were staying he gave us a free drink. Well done John!!
We would recommend this villa to anyone. It is certainly 5 star in every way.
Thanks to John & Caroline for a fabulous time in your beautiful home, we can't wait to return.

This is our second time at Serenity villa, and since our first visit we were looking forward to returning. The villa is spotless as it was on our first visit with spectacular views of the canal where you can sit by the pool or the dockside and watch the world go by, "you see an abundant of wildlife".
The location of the villa is very peaceful and quite. We had a wonderful relaxing time and would highly recommend.
Punta Gorda is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy with all the different eateries a short distance away.
Thanks John for ringing to make sure everything was okay, and it was a nice touch for leaving a bottle of wine on our arrival. Hoping to return again.
